The Democratic Nominee for Pres. ident Arrives at Centralis. THE MOXEY OUESTM GOXE 1310. Mr. Bryan Comptrn the Planks of tbe Re public and Democratic Flatforma aot Amlxm Two Qaeations Which lie Would Like Answered. Cento An a, I1L, July 15. William J. Bryan, democratic nominee for presi dent of the United States, arrived here yesterday to visit relatives, and was ' accorded a demonstration as hearty as it was unexpected. There was much clamoring- for a speech and Mr. Bryan responded as follows: Ladies and Gentlemen: I did not come to make a speech. The campaign is hardly opened yet. But coming back to Marion coun ty to attend to some business which had to be attended to before I returned to my Nebraska home. I was (rlad to accept an invitation tc spend two or three bouts wiih my relatives in this city, and while there to meet again the citizens and friends I knew before. We are entering- upon a memorable campaign and the issues are bein? drawn for the contest. Tbe two parties described as the two great parties. or the two leading parties, have already adopt ed their platforms and have already nominated their candidates for president and vice presi dent of the United States, and in a short time the campaign will be open fully and you will be making op your minds as to which ticket yoa will support. I trust that the issues Involved in this cam paign will be clearly understood and carefully studied. Parties are not made to be worshiped. They are merely tbe instruments by which we serve our country. The people are made not for parties, but parties are male for the people, and parties can only claim the support of the people when they are efficient instruments in the hands of people for accomplishing good. And those irho are called upon to vote have a right to consider the platform utterances or policies advocated by the various parties, as well as the character of the candidates whe are nominated. In this campaign I believe there will be less of personalities and more of principles than in any ca-npaign which we have known in recent ye its. The people are thinking about the great public questions. You must not expect that anv platform will contain all you desire. No thinking persons find in any platform an expression of everything in which tnev believe. Nor must you expect any platform will be free from some objections. We select our party, we select cur platform, not in the bops of something that is absolutely in accord with our opinions, but which gives the fullest expression of all our hopes and aspirations, and we take that platform and join that party which for tbe time being promises to give us the best legis lation on the most important questions And, in this coznpaign. it is conceded on all sides that the greatest cnA most Important issue is the money question. It matters not whether you believe in the restoration of silver or in a gold stanaard. You must admit that the set tlement of the money question is of the first and greatest importance. When that is dona. other things c in be considered. On the money question the two great parties have taken positions directly opposite each other. Four years ago the positions taken by tbe republican and democratic parties on the money question were identical. The republic an party said the American people, from tra dition and interest, are in favor of bimetallism and the democratic party said "We hold to the use of gold and silver as the standard money of the country, and to the coinage of both gold and silver without discrimination against either metal." Thus, you see. that both parties declared in favor of gold and silver as the money of the country. Four years have passed since those platforms were written and those four years bave been years of momentous events, and as this campaign approaches the two great parties line themselves upon this great question. The republican party at St. JLouis declared the gold standard should be maintained until it could be changed by international agreement. Note the langunge. That platform does not say that the gold standard is a good thing be cause that platform pledges the party to get rid of the gold standard and substitute for it something better as soon as it can be done, but that this better substitute could not be re ceived until the world should help. The democratic party met in Chicago and it adopted a platform which is in direct opposi tion to the platform adopted at St. Louis. The St. Louis platform declared that the gold standard should be maintained until it could be changed by international agreement, or un til something else could be done. The demo cratic party declared itself unalterably op posed to a single gold standard. And. more than that, the republican platform did not promise yon any complete monetary system. The democratic party outlined what it de sired to hive done. It declared in favor of the immediate restoration of the free and unlimit ed coinage of both gold and silver at the pres ent legal ratio of sixteen to one without wait ing for the aid or consent of anv other nation. We also declared that the silver dollar should be legal tender for all debts, public and pri vate, and that such legislation, should be en acted as is neeswary to prevent for the future the demonetization of any kind of legal tender money. More than thnt, the platform declared that tne government should exercise the right to redeem its obligations in either gold r silver. The issue is drawn and we have our choice .in this campaign between an American finan cial system for the American people and Eng lish financial system to be forced upon m Those who believe in running this govern me on the European plan should go and legislate with the republican party. If I mistake nt, the patriotism of -the peojSP whose patriotism has never been appealed toin vain, there can .be but one issue in this campaign, and but one result. If they ask us, What about other questions?" we .tell them that so long as tfee right of self-government is in danger there is no other question. Why discuss things if we be not powerful enough to act when we have tne power? .I've not the time nor disposition to talk tm 70U at this time, bat I want to impress upon your minds two xhdnsrs. J want you to ask twt questions which ought to be asked over and' -over asrain in this campaign, each time with in creased emphasK. and the two questions are these: - - "If the gold c&rnaard is a good thing why ought na to try to get xidf 4tr .. 1 , ; "If.it is a bad thing," why should welsecp it -tin til some other nation helps us to get ril c4 at" J, tbank yon. frwmds and 'fellow-citizens, for tne interest which y bave manifested and -for the eemplunemt which you have paid us by your assemblage here to-dap. I can but beg -or you that you shall de your duty as citijsens. "We who suad upon the platferm adopted at Chicago de not come to you as auppliants beg- fring for yovr votes. Those votes are your own. You are free men. aad m mat should stand la the attitwdo of peti'-isning 1-or a free man o t anything but what is according co his conscience: out we come before eu standing upon a platform and pledging: its enforcement if elected, and ro beg yoa to study the ques tions, all the questions, presented by the is sue involved, and then let yoar ballots regis ter a f nee man's arilL I thank you. There was tremendous applan-se when Mr. Bryan ceased speaking. ' H was then escorted to a car ri acre, aod ' jam id the peals tf bands, driven to the jrailway station, where he took the tfyain for JSaLem. The weekly Kansas crop bulletin says the past week was & good one for growing crops and harvest work, and rain was generally plentiful. A MILLION FOR SIGHT. Chute Ronss, the New Tors: Millionaire Offers a AtoyaU Fea for Restored Eye airht. New York, July 14. For the restora tion of sig-ht to his rapidly-failing- eyes. Charles Broadway Rouss, a millionaire of this city, will pay $1,000,000. This offer is open to anyone who may wish to try, man, woman or child. Mr. Rouss first became alarmed for his eyes about two years afro, when his sig-ht beg-an to fail very rapidly. He consulted all the noted eve spe cialists, but without relief. Mr. Rouss then determined he would try a new way of solving' the problem, and offered the SI, 000,000 to any one who could make him see as clearly as he did five or six years ag-o. The result of this proceeding was as might have been expected. Medical people of every school, clairvoyants, faith healers. Christian scientists, spiritualists, In dian doctors and cranks of all sorts have poured letters in upon the blind man by the thou sand. Scores have called in person and others h ave sent their ape n ts. Mr. Rouss does not try all the cures that are offered him. Indeed, he tries only those which commend themselves to his judgement, but as yet he has failed to find one that has had the least effect upon the ruined nerve. STEVENS TO HAUGHAWAUT. One Prominent A. P. Leader Threatens Another with a Ilbel Salt. Kansas Citt, Ma, July 14. Judg-e J. H. D. Stevens, of St. Louis, a mem ber of the national executive commit tee of the AmeVican Protective asso ciation, said yesterday: Several weeks ago Mr. T. B. Haughawant, of Carthage, Ma, made the statement that cer tain members of the national A. jP. A. commit tee that went to see Mr. McKinlev had received a payment of $5,000 each for making a certain report It is a libel and an infamous slander on the members of the committee and he will either have to come out with an ample apology to the order and to me personally or he will be made defendant in a suit for slander. He says he has the proof in his pocket . Now he will have to show that documentary proof or else lie down on his statements. The matter will be pushed and it is time for Mr. Haughawaut to make good b is boast That proof will have to be printed publicly and prominently or else he has got to write a full and complete apology to me and to the order he has slandered. He will have to do it at once. EXPORTS DURING JUNE. Increase In Breadatnffs and Decrease In otton, Comparad with 1895. Washington, July 14. The Jane statement of the bureau of statistics shows that the exports of breadstnffs during" the month was $11,693,164, as compared with $8,954,040 for June, 1895. Fo,r the 12 months the exports amount ed to $133,920,390, a pain of nearly $24, 000,000 over the same period in 1895. The cotton exports for June ag-greg-ated 5,310,160, which is only a slight de crease from June last year. For the ten months, however, tbe loss was about $11,500,000. The provisions showed a pain for June of about $3, -000,000, and a pain of only about 430, 000 for the year. THE CONVENTION CLOSED. Gathering; of Christian Enrieavnrers at Washington a Successful Affair. Washington, July 14. After one of the most successful and enthusiastic gathering's known in the history of the organization, tbe 15th internation al Christian Endeavor convention, which began last Thursday, came to a close last nig-ht. The local committee of 1896 ' has every reason to feel satis fied with the result of its work and is congratulating- itself on its splendid achievements. Although the registra tion of delegates and visitors foots up only 20,062, yet there were a great many in the city who did not notify the registration committee of the fact, so that the actual attendance was con siderably beyond that number. THREE WHITES LYNCHED. Swnnc to a Limb Kear TinhomlDeo, I. T Kelkevnd to Have Keen Horse Thieves. Ardmore, I. T., July 14. Noah Mc Gill, sheriff of Tishomingo county, came in from Tishomingo, the capital of the Chickasaw nation, and reports that three white men were found one morning recently hanging to a limb sear Reagan post office, a few miles from Tishomingo. The men were strangers in the neighborhood, and tne crime is & mvstery. It is generally believed that they were horse thieves, and were followed and captured by a party of Texans and swung up on the spot. They were still hanging when the sheriff left the scene. SHIP BUILDING. Wore Vessels, of Far Greater Tonnage, Itttilt to 1S9S Than In 1894,. Washington, July 14.

AWFUL ACCIDENT. Loaded. Excursion Train and. a Fast Freight Collide. Twenty-Eight People Killed Outright and nrtj-On Injaredt Many of Whom Will Die Responsibility for the Accident Rests on Eagincr Hosteomerj Omaha, Neb., July 13. A heavy loaded excursion train and ' a fast freight on the Northwestern road col lided shortly after six o'clock Saturday evening near Logan, la., 28 people were killed and 51 injured. Many of the latter will die. Omaha was a city of mourning- yesterday. The bright Sabbath morning brought the full realization of the greatest catastrophe that ever wreaked death and desola tion in the hearts and firesides of its people. No part of the city was spared. There are broken homes and bleeding hearts everywhere, and sorrow reigns supreme. Twenty-four dead are iden tified, and the remains of the others are so badly mutilated that identifica tion is hardly possible, all semblance of humanity being crushed out of the corpses. It took much time to prepare the in jured for their journey to this city. It was necessary to transport them a con siderable distance after their wounds were dressed. Owing to the number, it took still more time for the physi cians, even though they worked as hard and fast as they could, to adjust the bandages and to tenderly dress the gaping wounds that caused men, wom en and children to scream in the loud' est tones in their supreme agony. Of the more seriously injured some will die, some will hold their beds for weeks and months, some are in com parison but slightly injured. The wounds range from surface 'cuts to in ternal injuries, which must result in death. The responsibility for the accident rests on Engineer Montgomery of the ill-fated excursion train. His orders were to wait at Logan for the fast mail and fast freight, lie started his train out immediately after the mail passed. forgetting about the freight. The head end collision occurred 20 minutes later on a curve. The heavy freight passed partially over the passenger, All the people killed were in the front coach of the excursion train. M'KINLEY ON FINANCE. Tbe Republican Nominee for President Re ceive the Fornker Club. Cawtos, O., July 13. In a speech to the Foraker club, which visited him Saturday, ex-Gov. William Mckinley said: Recent events have Imposed upon the pa triotic people of this country a responsibility and a duty greater than that of any since the civil war. Then it was a struggle to preserve the government of the United States. Now it is a struggle to preserve the financial honor of the government of the United States. Then U was a contest to save the union. Now it is a contest to save, spotless, its credit. Then sec tion was arrayed against section. Now men ol all sections can unite, and will unite, to rebuke the repudiation of our obligations and the de basement of our currency. In this contest pa triotism is above party aad national honor is dearer than any party name. The currency and credit ox the government are good now, and must be kept good forever. Our trouble is not with the character of the money that we have, but with the threat to de base it. We have the same currency that we had in 1892 good the world over and unqaes- tioned by any people. Then, too, we had unexampled credit and prosperity. Our difficulty is to get that money in cir culation and invested in productive en terprises which furnish employment to Amer ican labor. This is impossible with the dis trust that hangs over the country at the v res ent time, and everr effort to make our dollars, or any one of them, worth less than 100 cents each only serves to increase that distrust. What we want is a sound policy, financial and industrial, which will give courage and confi dence to all. for, when that is done, the money now unemployed.because of fear for the future and lack of confidence in investment, will Quickly appear in the channels of trade. GeDtlemen, the employment of our idle money the Ale money that we already have in gainful pursuits will put every idle man in the country at work and when there is work there is wages, and when there are work and wages there are consumers who constitute the best market for tbe products of our country. Having destroyed business and confidence by a free- "trade policy, it is now proposed to make things still worse by entering upon an era of depreciated currency. Not content with the inauguration of the ruinous policy which has brought down the wages of the laborer and the price of farm products, its ad vocates now offer a new policy which will diminish the value of the money in which wages and products are paid. Against both of these we stand opposed. Our creed embraces an honest dollar, an untarnished na tional dollar, adequate revenues for uses of the government, protection to labor and industry, preservation of the home market and reciproc ity which will extend our foreign markets. Upon this platform we stand and submit its declarations to the sober and considerate judg ment of the American people. ALREADY FIGURING.

Mr. Study, his wife mod child and the infant child of Mrs. Hook, his sister, who was visiting there were drowned. Mrs. Hook and one of the Svidy children were saved. The bodies hya not been recovered. MALAGA IN JULY. The Old Spanish City Baa Little to OSes the SlgTht-Seer. It was July, and we had arrived at Malaga from Marseilles by water. . The town lay white and shining under a barren amphitheater of mountains. Between it and the Vinuesa was a great stretch of hot, hazy, shimmering, sun lit water, over which little boats each with white awning up, pulled out to meet us. We had read in Mr. Hare's Wanderings in Spain" of the extortion and shocking manners of Malaga's boatmen; the same story was in Mur ray, with an added warning to keep our temper. Eut we had no trouble. Once wc had landed, and on the open quay J had unstrapped and un locked ail our bags for a customs offi cer, who was too lazy to look into them ; and at the Hotel Victoria the landlord had given us a large, clean, airy, brick- floored bedroom, for which he asked less than the guide-book told us to beat him down to; we were free without further delay or bother to make our plans and be off on the road at any moment we chose. But first of all we went out to have a look at Malaga. Who was it said that sight-seeing is the art of disappoint ment? Surely we had not come all this way to the town of Hamet el Zegri, to walk through brand-new, wide streets, lined with big modern shops and clubs and caffs. The huge interior of the cathedral was unimpressive. The broken walls of the old Moorish fortress stood on the top of far too high a hill to be climbed in the staring sunshine of a July day. And even Murray could direct us to nothing else but a plain, bare church, where the banner of St. Ferdinand is said to hang, which we found fast shut; and an old Moorish arch, now neatly restored; and a river. dried up by the blazing sun of a tropical summer, with a railway track running down the middle of its bed, between groups of wooden shanties. We met women in black lace mantillas, or else In long, pointed shawls, a gay flower stuck in their hair, and men with clean shaven faces, in low, broad-brimmed hats and wide red belts. We saw plenty of donkeys in bright, gaudy trappings, but this was all the costume. We ought to have known better than to expect more. Still, somehow, its absence add ed to the grayness of our first impres sion. Liizabeth Robins Pennell, in Century. Signs of the End of Time. Many years ago there was printed in the city of Constantinople a queer Jew ish "mystery book" called the "Zerub babel." This book is great on proph ecies and signs, one section of it being entirely devoted to the coming of the Messiah and the ten "signs" which shall precede that event. The first is the appearance of the three apostle kings. The second, a period of terrible heat. The third, a den of blood (see Joel II.. 30). The fourth, a darkness which shall cover the earth for a period of 30 days. Fifth Borne shall be given universal power for nine months. Sixth A fall of "healing, sajve," or dew, which shall cure' every ill of the pious Jews. Seventh The birth of Armillus, the anti-Christ, an awful monster who will be born of a marble statue in one of the churches in Rome. Kighth The blowing of the three blasts on the trumpet by the archarsgel. Michael (not Gabriel). Ninth the blowing of a second series of blasts by the same person. Tenth The ten tribes shall be led to Paradise, where they will celebrate the wedding feast of the Messiah. St. Louis Republic. Feminine Frills. A pendant watch in blue enamel is considered a very lovely gift for a brides maid. The purse attached to the newest wheel-woman's belt looks like a can teen. Wide hairdressing is being frowned upon by the woman who likes exclusive styles. The woman who has- the talent of silence will have no trouble getting on in his life.

St. Lout Republic, January 7, 1896. -One of the largest institutions in this State la the Stark Bra's Nurseries and Orchards company at Louisiana, Mo., and Rockport, I1L The trade of the firm extends not only throughout the United States, Canada. Ger many, France. Italy, Hungary and other foreign couutries. but it has a number of cus tomers both in Kevr Zealand and Australia. Eighty years ao there came from Ken tucky to Pike county ibe late Judse Stark, then a young man fresh from Old Hickory's New Orleans campaign. He started the nursery and planted the first p rafted or chard in the state, having brought the scions on horseback from Kentucky. The business has descended from father to son, and is now conducted by the third generation, assisted by the fourth. This firm has more than l,0UO traveling solicitors, and employs more people iu its offices than would be necessary to run a large manufac turing concern. The extensive packing houses of the company are adjacent to the city, connected with the railroad by special tracks. From these packing-hontes hun dreds of carloads of trees are shipped an nually. The nursery pround-t embrace a number of farms convenient to the city, and even extend to Rockport, Ills., where there is a plaut of several million trees. The peculiarity of the concern is the establishment of large orchards. These orchards iu 24 states aggregate nearly 50, 000 acres, and more than S,aOO,00u trees on the partnership plan. The firm is also in terested in about as many more trees on the co-operative arrangement. Louisiana firms have more traveling men upon the road for them than any other city of the world of its size. This, of course, is largely due to the large number of men em ployed by the Stark Bros. Nurseries, who furnish their men the most complete, up-to-date outfit ever issued. Tbey are increasing their force of salesmen doily, and room for more. "Where does the weather forecast man go for his vacation !"

How Old IP TTou need not answer the question, roiarttwrt. for in your case age is not counted by years- It will always be true that "a woman is as old as she looks." Nothing sets the seal of age so deeply upon woman's beauty as gray Hair. It is natural, therefore, that every woman is anxious to preserve her hair in all its original abundance and beauty; or, that being: denied the crowning gift of beautiful hair, she longs ' to possess it. Nothing is easier than to attain to this gift or to preserve it, if already possessed. Ayer's Hair Vigor restores gray or faded hair to its original color. It does this by simply aiding nature, by supplying- the nutrition necessary to health . and growth. There is no better preparation for thus liair than AYER'S HAIR VIGOR. II Ueilieiwil M a.
