a half column article in the same is-

A distinct alternative is presented
to us Stanley or Leedy. Peffer's
candidacy is only important as it may
contribute to the election or defeat
of one of these men. The distance
between these two men and what
they represent is so great, that no
man with a glimmer of sense ought
hesitate a moment in making a choice.
Stanley is cultured, dignified, reli
gious; Leedy is ignorant, boorish, pro
fane. Stanley has judgment and
courage; Leedy mistakes insolence for
independence. Stanley is a man of
high ideas, Leedy thinks bravado and
bluster as statesmanship. Stanley
has intelligence enough to interpret
the constitution and statutes of the
state, and honor enough to obey an
official oath; Leedy stands convicted
of an utter disregard of his oath and
notorious collusion with joints and
dives for booze and boodle. Stanley's
election will elevate the state;
Leedy's election will debase it.

Was It the Crime of '73 or the Blunder of

"You're the most exasperating wom
an I ever saw; you're mulisher than
any other critter in the feed lot," said
my Populist friend, as he planked
himself into the chair with such force
as to burst the cane seat. Then, jerk
ing off one boot, he threw it at the
corner, missed the stand and hit the
cat. Forgetting the other boot, he
continued: "Aren't you ever going to
let up? Must you continue world
without end? Am I to hear it for
ever and a day on this side of Jordan,
and must I have it dinged into my
ears as I go sailing through the pear
ly gates? Do stop! Enough is enough,
and I've had enough."
With that he run his long, bony fin
gers through his disheveled hair, set
tled back In the chair and raised his
bootless foot high in the air.
The meek little wite sat quietly be
side the table, on which was a lamp
and a twenty dollar bill, and darned
away at her husband's stockings, un
ruffled, undisturbed, unmoved.
My Populist friend is a big-hearted,
quick-tempered, honest, whole-souled
uncouth farmer, who learned to
"rough it" in the war of the sixties,
and ever since has fought life's bat
tles bravely. His wife is gentle, meek,
kind, forbearing, devoted, patient,
shrewd and tantalizing. They live
out in Kansas, and that day he had
been to the Kansas City market with
a car load of fat cattle. Tenderly lie
had cared for them, regularly had he
fed them, with a feeling of supreme
satisfaction had he watched the
market rise as the cattle gained in
flesh, joyfully had he contemplated
the time when he couki bting home
to the good wife a portion of the
profit. The time to sell had come;
he expected much, but sold at the
"top price" of the market and got

1 bought those yearlings less than
two years ago, that they would bring
that price now? There is a bit of it
for you," and he placed the crisp bank
bill beside the lamp.
The little woman glanced at it
quickly; the old familiar, mischiev
ous smile began to plav about her lips;
and turning to her husband she bland
ly asked, "What's the price of silver?"
It was this innocent little question
that caused the storm-cloud to burst.
But when it had spent its force she
said, with a mild manner and placid
tone. "Your reference to the time of
buying brought to mind the condi
tions then existing. Let's see; it was
in August, I believe; yes, August, '96.
Xothingon earth, according to your
notion, would ever bring up the price
of cattle and hog and corn and wheat
but the free and unlimited coinage of
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1: commod
ities and silver went up and down to
gether." -
At this my Fopulist friend jerked
off the other boot, threw it in the
other corner, said not a' word, but
listened to his wife, who continued:
"I told you that what" was needed
was employment for the then idle
hands; that wages for the workers, so
that they could buy beef for their
families, would "help you and me;
that so long as our country bought its
goods of other countries our laborers
could not be emploj-ed making them
and could not have wages with which
to buy what we have to sell. You
voted for silver, but in spite of you
the men of the East voted vou down,
voted for employment and Protection
to the workers of mill and mine and
factory, voted to give them a chance
to earn money with which to buy the
beef of the steers that we fatten and
ship to market. But where is silver?
What has become of the yoke that
hitched the white metal and the
steer together? Cattle are up in price;
silver down."
"But r really thought McKinley's
election would make money scarce,"
he answered, plaintively.
"I know vou did. You're honest in
whatever you do, honest in blindly
following the demagogic leaders of
your party. . That's what Irritates
me. Did it make money scarce?" she
asked. "Since election haven't we

the world over as
We sell Organs at low prices, but they are
not "cheap instruments. About tne most
expensive and unsatisfactory thing you can buy is one
of these "cheap" Organs sold everywhere. When
you buy, get something that lasts years and years.
We sell Organs at from $25 to $200. ATo matter
what pr ice you pay, the same high grade is found in
every instrument. Our Organs are handsome out
the inside, where you can t see, is put
together as carefully and as accurately as a

We sell for cash, and on easv payments to re
Eastern money? Aren't farm loans
easier to get? Haven't rates of in
terest been lower? Aren't prices bet
ter?" "Oh, I don't know as you need crow
so much about cattle prices, it is
not home demand but foreign prices
that have helped us out,' asserted my
Populist friend, as he commenced pac
ing the floor in his stocking feet.
"Did you say that you saw Mr.
Birkett at market?" asked my wife,
seeming to change the subject.
"No, I saw him on the train."
"That is Mr. S. Birkett of Eureka,
down in Greenwould county?"
"Had he been to England again?"
, As the little woman put this ques
tion to him my Populist friend paus
ed before the chair and seemed unde
termined whether to sit down or to
continue pacing.
"Well, n-o-o, not th-i-s time," he
answered, hesitatingly.
"He had the other time, though,
hadn't he? That was before the pres
idential election, if I remember cor
rectly, about August."
"Yes, he was going over with cattle
then."" ' ' -
"Why not this time?"
'Well, you see " and by this time
my Populist friend was seated and
was squirming uncomfortably in the
chair; '-Mr. Birkett says that prices
are not so good over there now as they
were then."
And you found them better here,
this time, than then?"
"Lower over there in "93 than in '96;
higher over here in "98 than in '96; and
yet you say the advance here is caused
by demand there. Really, now, what
caused it demand, there or demand
here? "Who are the beef consumers?
Why, the workers, and you know it.
Why this increased demand and the
bester prices here? Simple enough.
More work and more wages here. Why
more work? Easy again. The Ding
ley law set our own rolling mills and
foundries and mines and factories to
going. Honestly now, husband, was
it the crime of T3 or the blunder of
'92, the election of Tariff reformers,
that gave us the hard times, which
are upon us no more?" " .

straight," he growled, and piked off
