PROOFS OP GOODNESS.
Jieforo they can consibtently nsk
consumers to tVlievo their-claim
that trusts ure 'ooJ for tho country
tho trust uolou;v8t3 must explain
away several facts.
For instance, tho averago cobcoC

per cent, higher than it was twelvo
months ago. .
Salt, which before tho Salt Trust
was formed, sold at S',i cents a bar,
now sells at $1 to $1.50.
Meat, one of the main food sta

been arbitrarily forced to an almost
prohibitive price by the beef com

than they Y'ere before the organi

Practically all the mills in Now

ed an advance of 25 per cent, about
a month ago, and since then it has
put on an additional 5 per cent
About three hundred trusts are
now in an active state of extortion
throughout the country, compelling
the, consumers in every instance to
swell the dividends ot their stock
"In the face of such facts," says
tha St. Louis Republic, "the man
who will persist in saying that the
trusts are good for the country has
a bottomless profundity of belief
In human gullibility."
WHAT CAM YOUNG MEN DO?
Independent, individual effort on
the part of young men is necessary
to build character and to give sup
port to the citizens of any country,
says the Chicago Dispatch, and es
pecially that of a free country like
But what chance has the trusts
left for independent and individual
action on the part of the young men
This question is answered by for
mer United States Senator W. D.
Washburn, of Minnesota, who says:
" When I was a young man I am
now G8 I had the world before me,
and there was an absolutely fair
field before me. Take all of our

We could with equal propriety
excuse the Greenbrier correspond

ocrat. Smith's College, November 1.
There are two sides to a question, and
we expected that some one take issue
with ua on the redisricting question,
but we hardly thought of beincr asked
by a member of the county court if we
didn't know that an additional tax levy
was very unpopular. It would seem that
he is for the popular side, regardless of
:ie best interests of the poor little chil
dren of the county. However, we vent
ure the assertion that it will be as popu
lar irj the sixth district next August as
any candidate for a district offieo on a
Of course anything that is worth doing
at all is worth doing well, and the only
way to redistnct the county would be to
make a survey of the eutire county, and,
according to those who favor the idea,
a school house must be put in the cen
ter of each square, be it three miles or
any other number of miles (some say six)
square, regardless of whether it is in a
swamp cr rocky hill," or miles from a
road or human habitation; thus some
houses would have enough students for
two schools while others would not have
enough for a four-handed game of mar
bles. On the other hand, if we must
adopt the conclusions of the Flatwoods
correspondent, what is the necessity ol
going to tne expense of redisricting, as
our present houses were built with a
view to their convenience and other ad
vantages in view.
We are still inclined to the opinion
that a small tax levy, say enough to give
us a six months school, would be less
burdensome than the expense of redis
ricting the county and rebuild perhaps
half ot our school houses, which would
create a general disturbance and para-
lize the school interest for mauy years
As to a compulsory school law, we
think all parents should be compelled
to send their children four months to a
six months school. Ignorance is the
greatest curse in thistonntrv to-dav, and
in this county a great deal of this is due
very often to indifference or to some lit
tle excuse made by the parent and so
ofteu without reason and tby will kep
their childreu at home to wallow in the
dirt and wear out their clothes and do
nothing until thev eet po large they are
ashamed of their ignorance and of their
parents, and they mnwt sink alnrost to
tl'O level of an idiot for the leason that
their parents diJn't send tbtrn to schoo
because they didn t 'haf to. -Smith's

The Chicago Dispatch Is the great Democratic
weekly newspaper of the country. It advocates
the readoplion of the Chicago platform and the
renoiiiiiiHtion of William .Jennings Ihvan.
There has never heen a political campaign that
will equal in importance that of the one to he
fourrlu next year. The llepubllc.in party, hacked
by the money power of this country and liurope,
Is alert and aggressive. Flushed Willi the victo
ry of three years ago it will seek by every means
in its power to maintain its supremacy.
Democrats must be up and doing. Thev must
wage an unceasing war upon their enemies, in
no better and more effective way can this be done
than by the circulation of good sound Democratic
newspapers. The publisher of the Chicago Dis
patch will wnd a copy of the Chicago Dispatch
iroiii now until January 1, l!i0. for no cents. If
you are not already taking tills great political
weekly, send in your subscription at once. You
should not only do this yourself, hut you should
induce your friends to join you. By a'httle effort
you can easily raise a club of ten or twenty sub
scribers. An extracopv for club of ten.
The Chicago Dispatch is endorsed by William
Jennings Bryan and oiher Democratic leaders.
