It HOTHEß BROWN'S VIEWS.
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.

B ai ley, Mi;
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.—

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

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.

\Y hysliouKl not tlio Government Loan
Ou tho subject of loans to farmers by tho
national Government, Lecturer Mortimer
Whitehead of tho National Grange says:
How many huudreds of millions of dollars ,
has our government loaned to nnother class
"of tho people" to help thorn build railroads
that are now too ofteu used to oppress the
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.

THREE-YEAR-OLD'S IDEA OF KISSES.
I showered upon his dimpled cheeks
Sly kisses by tho score.
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."

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

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.
It is not generally known that com

sufllatiou of common salt. Tho salt
was cither "snuffed" or blown up tho
