He secured the nomination At the silver convocation By the fervid agitation Of his chin. He has traveled through the nation And disturbed the population By the loud vociferation Of his lungs. Since Vermont's late demonstration He is making his migration To the western reservation On his car. ' "With the whole conglomeration. Popocratlc aggregation. Howling dervish collocation. Blowhard-crank amalgamation. He will view the situation . ' At the campaign's termination " On his back. Chicago Tribune. The gold standard countries have more paper money and more silver money in circulation than do any of the countries having any other stand ard The Popocrat papers are quoting Bismarck as being in favor of an in ternational agreement for silver coin age. The Republican party is on record in its platform as being in favor of it also. The principal significance of Mr. Bryan's tour through the south lies in the fact that he is the first Demo cratic candidate for president since the war who has found it necessarry to stump that part of the country. The United States with a per capita circulation of $8.41 in gold and 88.77 in silver seems to be very nearly a bi metallic country. Make silver the standard and, following the well es tablished Gresham law, gold would immediately go out of circulation, t hus reducing our metallic money one half . ..-.-. When McCormick, the Populist nominee for congress in the Sixth dis trict, stated in his speech that the volume of money in existence In a country determined absolutely ihe price of products, a little old farmer - who didn't look as if he knew beans rose from his seat in the corner and in a quivering voice demanded to know why it was then, that here in .1' the United States wVtero wp lmrl times as much money as Mexico, wheat didn't bring five times as much as it did in the latter countrv. And Mr. McCormick hasn't answered yet. Kansas City Journal. In 1892 the home consumption of corn in the United States was 30.33 bushels per capita. In 1895 the home consumption had fallen to 16.98 bush els per capita. In 1892 the home con sumption of wheat was 5.92 bushels per capita. In 1894 it fell to 4.95 bushels and in 1895 it was 3.78 bushels . per capita. In the face of such de structive results from tne abandon ment of protection and with no de- American farmer can well marvel that prices for food product have not been more nearly wiped out of existence. j Gold, silver and jia(er money make 1 an ideal eirculatinsr medium. The United States has these various kinds j of moneys in almost equal propor tions and we think it would be folly to disturb their present relations. - France made an effort, to keep gold and silver at a parity and in doing so changed her coinage laws one hun dred and thirteen times. She finally gave up in despair and adopted the gold standard and now lias over $12.00 per capita of silver in circulation. Since the nomination of HrvatU who is The champion of the silver, that product has fallen 4 percent, in value. Since the nomination of McKinley wheat lias gone up 40 per cent. What becomes of the popocrat theory that the two products keep together? If the prospect of electing either candi date has any effect upon the interests each represents the voter should not be slow in deciding how to vote. At present the ratio is 10 to 1 in favor or McKinley. PARALLELS FOR POPOCKATS. If the government were running the only grist mill in the country would it be right to give as much of the people's money for fifty cents' worth of corn as for a dollar's worth of wheat? Would such a plan double the value of corn at the mills of other countries? If so, would itbenefitany one except the large dealer in corn and if received any benefit would it not be at the expense of others? Would such an arbitrary proceedings make and keep the two products of equal value regardless of the world's supply and the demand for either? If meal "and flour were both legal tender, as silver and gold now are', would it- be right to adopt a plan whereby all the flour is hoarded and the meal forced upon the people? If the gov ernment owe you bread would you not like to have your choice between Hour and meal and are vou willing that others take their choice also, as in the case of gold and silver? If you owe a debt which may be paid in either meal or flour can you expect to get either the one or the other without giving an equivalent? Would this arbitrary grinding of the people's grists, regardless of relative value, make nour ana meal equally accepta ble at home or abroad, as you claim in the case of gold and silver, notwith-. standing a decided preference lor Hour (gold) is expressed bv the people of the wholecivilized world excepting, of course, t he Chinaman who hankers tor rice and the Mexican who is not above beans? (Albeit perforce, since both enjoy (?) the blessings or free silver coinage). Can you see the point? Maoaulay's Idea of Frea Coin&ge.'- Toront-o Mail and Empire. The subjoined passage from Macau- ley's History of England happily de scribes a leader and a party not unlike Bryan and the Democrats. It relates to Lowndes, Secretary of the Treasury: "He was not in the least aware that a piece of metal with the King's head on it was a commodity, of which the price was governed by the same laws which govern the price of a piece of metal fashioned into a spoon or a buckle, and that it was no more in the power of parliament to make the Kingdom richer by calling a crown a pound than to make the Kingdom larger by calling a furlong a mile. He seriously believed, incredible as it may seem, that if the ounce of silver were divided into seven shillings in stead of five, foreign nations would sell us their wines and their silks for a smaller number of ounces. He had a considerable following, composed partly of dull men. who really believ ed what he told them, and partly of shrewd men. who were perfectly will ing to be authorized by law to pay a hundred pounds with 80." HEARD AT THE MINT. 1873. Uncle Sam Why don't you let me have that silver to make into a dollar? Mine Owner Because I can get 3 cents more for it as it is. Uncle Sam You won't let me have it, eh? Then I can't make any silver dollars. Mine Owner I don't care. I ain't fool enough to let you have my silver for less than I can sell it to other folks for. 189C. Mine Owner Why don't you take my silver and make it into dollars? Uncle Sam Because you haven't got enough to make a dollar. You have only got 53 cents' worth. Mine 'Owner Yon won't take it, eh? Then I can't have a silver dollar? Uncle Sam I don't care. I ain't fool enough to take your silver for more than I can get from other folks for it. Mine Owner Then you're a mean, miserable fellow. You have always had a grudge against me, and I don't forget that way back in 1873 you com mitted a crime, and I will have you put through for it. I'll break you up in business for this.

Kussell Journal. Democracy skinned the farmers of the United States in 18!2. and now the party comes up smiling and asks for the 'dry hide and liorns. Colby Tribune. A hacking cough is not- only annov ing to others, but is danarerous to the person who has it. One Minute Cough Cure will quickly put an end to it. -Tones & Gibson. The thing to do with the free silver conspiracy is to bury it deep beside its twin, the greenback swindle. One tombstone will do for both. Globe Democrat. Speed and safetv are the watch words of the age. One Minute Cough Cure acts speedily, sately and never fails. Astha. bronchitis, coughs and colds are cured by it. Jones & Gib son.

De Witt's Witch Hazel salve is an antiseptic, soothing and healing ap plication for burns, scalds, cuts, bruises, etc., and cures piles like magic. It constantly stops pain. Jones & Gibson. The exact Republican plurality in Maine is 48,732. or only 1280 less than four times as large as that of 1892; still Sewall won't let- go. He is prob ably waiting to see what Nebraska does with Bryan. r Many lives of usefulness have been cut short by neglect to break up an ordinary cold. Pneumonia, bronchitis and even consumption can be averted by the prompt use of One Minute Cough Cure. Jones & Gibson. An American might get along com fortably and be happy on a free silver basis if he were willing to live as a Mexican peon does. Dwell in a mud house and live on beans and tortillas, the latter being an unleavened cake make out of coarse corn meal Tetter, eczema and all similar skin troubles are cured bv the use of De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve. It soothes at once, and restores the tissues to their natural condition, and never fails to cure piles. Jones & Gibson. The "New York Journal says there is a decided change this season in night gowns. We are sorry, indeed, to hear it. having just laid in a sup ply, which, of course, if the stvle has changed, will be a dead loss to us, for we could not think of wearing them.

Such are the famous little pills known as De Witt's Little Early Risers. Small in size, great in results. Jones & Gibson. Tt is blood-curdling to contemplate. The Call tells about a young man at Beloit named Brummage, being ar rested on the charge of "statuary" rape. and. rather than stand trial, he married the other party to the trans-act-ion the piece of statuary, presum ably! Downs Times. Many political speakers, clergymen, singers and others who use the voice excessively, rely upon One Minute Cough Cure to prevent huskiness and laryngitis. Its value as a preventive is only equaled bv its power to afford instantaneous relief. Jones & Gibson. Vitipuration. personalities and abuse "used to be the caper" in polit ical campaigns, "but- it won't do now." People want facts and proofs, not mere assert ions and abuse. This is a tip to the free silver orators (?) who are now at large in the state and county. Chronic constipation is a painful, disagreeable and life-shortening diffi culty. It deranges the system, causes sick headache, bad breath, and poisons the blood. It can be readilv overcome bv DeWitt's Little Early Risers. These little pills are great regulators. Jones & Gibson. Chairman Jones, of the Iemocratic National committee is getting sick of his job. and rumor says he isto resign. Sewall's inability to'control his own ward in the late Maine election, and the "Boy Orator" in a dangerous con dition, owing to an aggravated case of mouth-fever, has given Mr. Jones, as well as the public, a "large dis gust." With two little children subject to croup we do rest- easy without a bot tle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house, for the most severe at tacks quickly succumb to a few doses of it. Morrison.

However, as the Em Mria Gazette savs. if a man wants to vote for a bull-headed old ignoramus like Leedy. the fact that he voted against, ti e soldiers' orphans would not stop 1 im.

Every column in a newspaper con tains from ten to twenty-two thous and distinct pieces of metal, the dis placement or one or which would cause a blunder or a typograph ical error. And yet some people think it strange to see an error in the paper, W hen they see a word with a wrong letter in it. or a misplaced one. thev are sure they could have spelled the word naiit, and they are happy for a whole day and go around feeling how the editor made a mistake. Ex. The Darlington. Wis.. Journal says editorially of a popular patent medi cine: "We know from experience that Chamberlain's Colic. Cholera and Di arrhoea Bemedv is all that is claimed for it, as on two occasions it stopped excruciating pains and possibly saved us from an untimely grave. We would not rest easy over night without it in the house.' " This remedy undoubted ly stives more piin and suffering than any other medicine in the world. Every family should keep it in the house, for it is sure to be needed sooner or later.

After a few months of tramp life he returned and, hiding in a corn field on the outskirts of town, sent in the fol lowing to the old man: "Send me out a pair of pants and a blanket; I have got a hat."
