VOL. i. DOES FARMING PAY? It pays the road that handles the grain. It pays the store that keeps from rain. It pays the agents when they sell, It pays insurance very well, It pays the banks that make the loans, It pays the man the mortgage owns, It pays the shops that makes machines, It pays the merchants all his liens, It pays the tax, federal and States. It pays the trusts to keep up rates, It pay everybody so grand, Except the man who forms the land. Does farming pay and people bless?— Of course it does. Now all say yes' JOHN SHER.MAX SAT'S I have often been asked not only in .this chamber, but outside, how it comes that the silver dollar was dropped from among the coins of this country. The answer is lhat in 1873 when these statutes were so carefully revised, the silver dollar as provided in the then ex isting law was worth more than a dollar in gold, more in the money market of the world. There was no use then is suing the dollar, because it would go in to the melting pot, being worth more than a gold dollar.—Cong. Record, Ist, Session, 44th, Cong, page 2735. INTRINSIC VALUE.

At the Christian era the metallic money of the Roman Empire was $1,800,000. By the end of the 15th century it had shrunk to less than $200,000,000. During this period a most baleful change took place in the condition of the world. Population dwindled, commerce, arts, wealth and freedom all disappeared. The people were reduced by poverty and misery to the most degraded conditions of serfdom and sla vey. The disintegration of society was almost complete. The conditions of life were so hard, tliat individual selfish ness was the only thing consistent with self-preservation. ALL public spirit, ALL generous emotions, ALL noble aspirations of man shriveled up and disappeared AS THE VOLUME OF MONEY SHRANK AND PRICES FELL. —Report U. S.
