One of the most illegal proposi tions that his ever been advanced is the one that free silver will be good for the farmer but not for the salaried man or day laborer. It must have taken an inventive gen ius to have thought cf that idea. The man who does not know that that which is good for the firmer cannot be other than good for every man in the land is ignorant of a generally known fact. It must be a dull man who does not know that when everything is brought down to its lowest level that salaries and day laboreis wages will be brought down on the sameleveL The daily wages in some of the European countries is today as low as 10 cents to 25 cents in silver or gold. If tho day laborers have not had sufficient ex perience in this country let them elect McKinley and they will get their fill before his time expires, THE BAGGAGE SMASHER The baggage-smasher's ghoulish face was illumed with a smile of glee, for his car was filled with stuff edup trunks till it was a sight to see. As the train sped on through the summer's morn' and the car rocked to and fro, said he to himself: ''What a cinch I'll have when these trunks get on the go- "That big one there I'll give a shove that will send it straight to smash, and that smaller one on the other side I'll 'bust' like a light ning's flash." On his biceps huge he laid his hand, and his mighty arm did bend, as ho softly laughed o're the wrecks he'd make when he reach ed the other end Then, with whistle's shrieked and the brakes down hard, in a vain attempt to s'ack his awful sneed, the engineer saw a'bou der upon the track. Like a thunder bolt the through express went into its mighty rock, andjthe cars piled up and telescoped by the force of that awful chock. The biggage-car wns a total wreck, with the trunk3 split open wide, and their contents dotted the landscape o'er and were scattered cn every side. The bajgagemai was pulled from the wreck, and a sorry sight was he, with his ribs pushed in and a broaken arm; bu withal that smile of glee hung o'er his features as he viewd the "used-up" bag gage there, and it seemed as if for his battered form he had never a thought of care. What mattered piin to this mighty - man this smasher of trunks so grim when he saw at a glance that the railway wreck had completed a job for him. 0t mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm A CORRESPONDENT . Wishoa to know whether Great Britain deducti 10 per cent for al loy when they rcceire American gold coin for government debts. Answer Great Britain does not recognize our gold coin as money. It is a commodity, and is taken precisely at a barrel of pork or caddy of tobacco by weight. Alloy is of course deducted. We receive foreign gold coins simply as a commodity, and not a legal tender for any sura. In short, as between nations there is no such thing as money. All trade con sists of barter an exchange of commodities. By a law of con gress in 1843 British gold coins were made a legal tender at the rate of 94.6 cents per penny weight. French gold coins 9 10 fine were made a legal tender for all debts at the rate of 92.9 cents per pennyweight. By the same act the silver dollars of Mexico, Peru and Bolivia wers made a legal tender for 93 cents. By the act of Congress of 1S57 all foreign coins were entirely dis franchised and were sent to an American, mint to be converted into American coin. This lav has nvcr been repealed, and is in force now. British gold will not pay a debt until it has passod through sn American mint. It is an interest ing fact that the United States will not receive its own gold coin ex cept by weight. Cincinnati En quirer. Take the Star. LOCAL DOTS. C. L.
