13 To Populists And all Who BelieY8 in the Coinage of Silver. The battle is on in Virginia. The issue is clearly presented. The state convention of the People's party held at Lynchburg declared for the free coinage af silver and gold at the present legal ratio 18 to 1. There waa no dodging, no evasion. The ticket nominated, headed by Captain Edmund R. Cooke, for governor, is con ceded by all to be as strong and able as ever presented for the BUpport of voters in any state. The democratic convention at Rich mond was held during the discussion, in the house of representatives, of the Wil son unconditional repeal bill. In that discussion eastern democrats main tained that the Chicago platform of 1892 meant a gold standard. The democratic president had so construed it. Some western and southern democrats claimed that the platform of 1802 meant free coinage of silver with gold. In the Riohmond convention a few genuine and sincere friends of silver coinage advo cated the adoption of a clean cut decla ration o the question similar to that made by the Populists, but they were but a pitiful minority in the convention. The Cleveland influence dominated the convention. The Cleveland candidate Congressman O'Ferrall (who has since supported the administration construc tion of the Chicago platform by voting for the Wilson unconditional repeal bill) was nominated for governor and the Chicago platform, meaning all things to all men, and nothing definite to anybody, was re-adopted. In Ithe campaign between those who levy and those who pay tribute the Virginia campaign will be the first im portant skirmish. The masses of the people in the old Dominion, students and followers of Washington and Jeffer son have time and again rewarded their votes in favor of gold and silver coinage, the money of the constitution framed by their patriotio fathers. They are ready for revolt against this attempt by the modern democracy to deliver tkem and their posterity to the cruel hardships of a single gold standard, and a contracting currency. All that .is needed to admin ister effective rebuke to the tories of Virginia is organization amongst the patriots. This can only be accomplished by thorough discussion and agitation. The state committee of the People's party is doing splendid work according to its limited means. It must have money with which to defray the ex penses of speakers at publio meetings, and distributing campaign literature. A few of the senators and representa tives can and will give all the time that can be properly spared from, their publio duties at Washington to the campaign, without expenses to the committee, but others are ready to help, and their proper expenses must be paid. Our people in Virginia are poor. The active members of the party in the state are unable to bear these extra expenses. They are en titled to the assistance of friends throughout the union. Let each friend devote such amount, however small, as he or she can spare for this important contest, aad send the same to Mr. C. IL Pierson, chairman, care of Virginia San, Richmond, Virginia. Every penny will be expended legitimately in the cause of the people. Let there be no delay in giving. The maxim, "He gives twice who gives quickly" is directly applicable. You will appreciate the importance of this election when reminded that all state officer?, and a legislature which electa a United States senator and judges of the court are to be chosen. Signed. Wm.

World's Fair Attractions. Look at the 60 ft. baby wheel in the Midway Plaiaance at the World's Fair, and then transfer your gaze to the great Ferris Wheel, and draw your compari sons. Go to a circus and see the trained wild animals go through their performance, then visit Carl Hagen becks Zoological Arena in the Midway, and you will dis cover the difference to be as wide as be tween the little wheel and the Ferris. In the center of the Hagenbecka building is a large arena seating 5000 people. In the center of this is erected a large strongly caged arena where the performance takes place and around this arena twice a day sit the great audi ances, every nerve on a tension, breath lessly witnessing the most remarkable, the most wonderful, the most thrilling performance ever given to the world; a performance but a little short of the marvelous, and well calculated to inspire a profound respect and admiration for the men and women who exhibit their olista" in urging congress to repeal the silver bill. When the farmers learn this they will make trouble.

The Bowsher Combina tion feed mills do not class with the above; it is all right For six years the Bowsher mills have been giving practical teste, and their maker has the faith to declare that the different tests they have been subjected to entitle them to rank permanently above all other grinding mills for gen eral work. They possess elevator at tachments and the distinguishing feature of conical-shaped grinders, which do the work close to center of shaft and are consequently light running and cause little wear on each other. An additional special feature is the divided hopper, making it praotioal to grind small grain while crushing ear corn, mixing and grinding at he same time, the flow of which into the grinders proper being un der perfect control. There ae many other admirable points about the mills. This mill crushes corn and cob, and grinds all --kinds of small grains, oat, rye, barley, screenings, cotton seed, shelled corn, oil cake, etc ; also crushes I jT:-.. ... naiSi 2 2 mm H U On k - '" vV uvvrv 1 Wi; MUU U CI n n .- vv;; v-.-v ViV -.''"A ' HOTEL FRATERNITY, COR.

Among the prominent feat urea of the performance are the full grown trained lions riding horseback like trained circus riders. Lions har nessed to a chariot drawing their com panions who ride in state, wonderful groupings of the great kings of the for est. Pigs that perform the most rem ark able evolutions, the dwarf elephant Lilly in her tricks displaying an intelligence as near human as anything can be. You must not miss this wonderful ex hibition. If you do you will miss one of the most impressive and fascinating fea tures of the World's Fair. Mr. Hagen beck possesses world renown as the greatest animal trainer in existence. He supplies the zoological gardens of the world. His greatest strength lies in bringing together the most heterogen eous animals which associate in perfect harmony. A large ethnological exhibit is con tained in the building and a large aq uarium representing the Indian Ocean with all the wonderful plants fishes etc., in the exact condition in which they live. By all means don't miss Carl Hsgen becks in the Midway Plaiaance. With deep regret we note that Mont gomery Ward, the "original grange supply house" man, the friend of the farmer, and chief of mmercial guer illas, joined the banks, the wholesalers, the pork packers, and the other "monop- corn with shucks. On application to N. B. Bowsher, South Bend, Ind., you can obtain a neat pam phlet free of charge setting forth ali their merits.
