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.

GROVER'S OBJECT LESSON
I SHALL be sorry to see individuals suffer, but Ido not
intend te raise my hand to prevent. What the country
needs and must have, is an object lesson. We must
have hard times and business failures and bankruptcy and a
certain amount of distresss before Congress will realize its
duty, and perform it. I PROPOSE TO GIVE THE
COUNTRY AN OBJECT LESSON.—Grover Cleveland,
March 1893, advocating repeal of Silver law.

MONEY CONTRACTION IN HISTORY.
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. Monetary Commission, 1876, Vol. 1, Pp. 49.
The intrinsic valne dollar makes
more interest.
The intrinsic value dollar makes
bankers.
The intrinsic value dollar makes
vile legislators.
The intrinsic value dollar makes
corrupt courts.
The intrinsic value dollar makes
the few rich.
The intrinsic value dollar makes
the many poor.
Pin your faith to the intrinsic
value dollar idea, vote for it, swear
by it, and starve by it.—Coming
Nation.
