He wants to Dispose or the Surplus In tlio United States Treasury. To (he Editor of Tho New Farmer: l see many propositions to dispose of the surplus in the U. S. Treasu ry. My plan would be to donate $10,000,000 more or less, owing to population, as a special school fund; let the principal ever remain and only use the interest on same, each State to have control of said fund. Let it be divided among tho counties in proportion to educable children or population, such money to be loaned on real estate security, and only to actual settlers at a lawful per cent., and let such interest be used for school purposes only. This plan would greatly increase the facilities for education, and would put at once $400,000,000 in circulation, or about $7 per capita. Pass tho silver bill and sub-treas ury bill and we will have money plenty, and with our free school system, we, in the near future, can boast of a free America in the true sense of the word. ing a ' to i M. A. Bkovx. B ai ley, Mi; ' "Tlie Lecturer." Owing to t he falso education of | producers in regard to economical j questions which touch their inateri al interest, ' The Lecturer" holds, perhaps, the most important office of our order. I fc being his special province to aid in the destruction of those relics of barbarism, those an cient idols whereby the many are enslaved for the benefit of the few; as also to teach the brethren the su perior advantages of a currency based upon the real wealth of the nation, and made the only legal ten der for debts and taxes; and to show them that their first duty to themselves, to their children to their brethren, is a true allegiance to the principles of our order, upon the success of which the prosperity of the country depends. Now, seeing that so great a weight hangs upon this office, the organs of the order cannot do a better work for themsel ves or for the order than to stir up these, their most efficient aids, to the proper discharge of their official duties.— J. II. Robertson, Mt. Vinco, Va , in the National Economist. , . Hill N ye on tlio Grippe. Ah! the grippe! the grippe! We've sure enough had it. It needs no in troduction. You will know it when it grips you For ten days our limbs were converted into a tram road over which the locomotive of this dreadful disease passed, using our head for its bumper, finally side tracking us at the junction of pros tration, and left us feasting on Bill Nye's soothing restorative which is: Little grains of quinine, Little drinks of rye, Make lagrippe that's got you Drop its hold and fly. This may quickly help you, If you'll only try; But don't forget the quinine When you take the rye." To the Editor of The New Farmer; In reply to J. H. McGehee I will agree with him in some of his selec tions for delegates from the State at large, hut I ask him, and all good citizens to pick oat good clean men from all classes whose past reputa tion is without blemish and select no man who has sold his birth-right for a mess of porrige. It has been said that if we are not careful in our selections the Louisiana State Lot tery will be moved to Mississippi. The love of money is the root of all evil. .. F. M. Walker. Topisaw, Miss. Brotner Raynor's Appeal. To tho Editor of The New Farmer: I nm a subscriber to our paper. The rea son I say "our" is that I think every alliance man ought to take it, as well as every labor ing man in tho State, for it is advocating his oatfse and trying to help build him up. If we do Dot rend our own literature, how can we expect to be able to secure our rights? Fut your shoulder to the wheel and keep pushing. Wo must know what is going on, and what paper can we rely on so well as our own ? There is a great deal of talk about tho con vention. I hope we will get none but good people to represent us, and I trust we may never regret changing the old Constitution. B. J. Raynee. 1 New Albany. Mis*. TWINKLINGS.

It simply makes a difference who is doing 1'. S. Senator Stanford, of California, has within a fow days introduced this mat ter in (he Senate, and tho world moves and farmers are awaking and commencing (o move with it. "All citizens shall be equal before the law," says our National Constitution, and that means finauce lows, tariff laws, and all laws. Let us think on these things. To this the Prairie Former of Chicago re plies: "Tho Prairie Farmer asserts, on broad grounds, that the government should not go into the business of loauiug money at all; certainly not to one class to tlio ex clusion of others." Wo should like (o have an explanation from the P. F. on two points; why should not the government loan money; and if it loans to thoso who invest their money in bonds why should it not loan to thoso who have their means invested in land? The custom of all organized governments is to take charge of tho whole scheme of fi nance. It issues the money and controls and regulates it in all regards, permitting no individual to have anything to do with it, and since it so controls and regulates, and can make or mar individual fortunes ac cording as it expands or contracts the cur rency, why should it not assume the further function of loaning, and thus put itself in a position to afford relief to those who are li able to suffer loss from the government ma nipulation of the national finances? As lo not loaning money to one class to tho exclusion of another, that is just what this government has been doing for a quarter of a century, and now we want to see the other class havo a show. But oven if the gov ernment's loaning of money was confined to one class, and that class the farmers who own their own farms, such a system would result in great benefit, because upon the prosperity of the farmers depends that of every other class. If farmers have plenty of money every other business in tho coun try, even that of banking, flourishes. No sane man ought to bo opposed to such "class legislation," if it may be so called, as would redound to the general good.—Ex. 8500 .

Then hugged my darling to my heart. And stole somo twenty more. He did not murmur or oppose. But still and passive laid; In thoughtful mood he asked me then: "Of what are kisses made}'' "I cannot tell you, precious One. Just make a few yourself. Perhaps you then cun answer, dear. Your query, you sweet elf.'* Up came two ruby, rosy lips. On neck, and check, and brow, Ho-tnado some kisses; then said 1, "All. can't you answer now?" With thoughtful mien and winning smile, lie turned his eyes above, Thon said, "Why, mamma dear, I fink, They're made, just made of love." —Ladies' Home Journal. nig wolf. Young Cant. Nelso Vallcaux.a youth between 15'and 10 years of age, per formed a feat that stands unrivaled in the history of prairie exploits. Mount ed on his trusty and sure footed Mon 1 tana horse he essayed to capture '' tho lariat an immense gray won. Twice tho beast's neck was encircled by the rawhide lariat and twice tho animal's sharp teeth severed the strands as the young horseman was at tempting to disable the savage beast. The third time Noise caught the young wolf around the middle of the body and started on a run, dragging it near tlio edge of a cut bank until lio tum bled it o\. r tho edge. Nclse then held tho wolf suspended in the air over tho edge of the cut bank by fastening the rope to tho pommel of the saddle. He then dismounted and stoned the ani mal to death, the well trained horse standing perfectly still during the operation.—Fort fie a ton Press. Common Suit for Neuralgia.
