Local Committee local dealers get in a few hundred pounds per day and must either ship by express in small quantities or feed the fowls two or three weeks while securing a carload. Farmers pay little attention to the local merchants advertisements for a carload of poutry to be delivered on a certain day, as they know the merchant will be there next week when it suits better to haul the stuff to town. So, for the sake of a cent a pound more on their poultry, all the poul try raisers of this vicinity made an extra effort and brought in their fowls to the representatives of a trust, who will, as soon as they get enough in cold storage, raise the price of poultry out of the reach of the common people who have to buy- The merchants of a town contrib ute to the wealth and support of a community, aid in every public en terprise, in fact, make the town and community. The men who come to a town for two days or a week have no interest in the community and would not give a cent toward furth ering any enterprise therein.- Shel- bina Democrat. The Aldrich Campaign. When last heard from, in Kansas City, Senator Aldrich had got so far in developing his plan of a cen tral bank as to give the opinion of European financiers that our mone tary system is "barbarous." There is no doubt that the term applies to that part of the system, or want of the system, which leaves unre deemed $356,000,000 of the legal tender or greenback currency. It applies also to the enormous cir culation of silver certificates, for which, together with the green backs, it is necessary to maintain a redemption reserve of $150,000, 000 in gold. But there is in all this says the Philadelphia Record, no reason for establishing a cen tral bank of the kind the Andrew Jackson throttled. Gets Berth.
