And vet the silver syndicate keeps "yelling and whining," do something for silver. One effect of the silver agitation and the uncertainty iir to the money of the future is seen in the demands being made for "gold notes on all ienl estate transactions now being made in our county.

Democrats as well as Republicans, not to mako up their minds on tho money question until they have given it enro- ful thought, .lust became times are hard, don't blame the gold standard. Times hnd been hard before 1873 ns well as since. iSut we are sure that if our readers, and especially our farmer readers, get, nt the facts they will believe as lm: bKNTiNel believes the gold standard is, not the only, but one of the most important requisites of our prosperity. It is a principle of economics, t-hnt ns the value of land increases rents in crease correspondingly. The pnme, it seems, ought to be true of money. If tno followers ol.Mtgelil are correct in their assertion that the dollar has doub led in value since 1873, the ratoof. inter est should have doubled, or at least greatly increased. What are the facts? In lSi.l the ordinary nnd usual rate of interest in Holt county was from ten to twenty per cent. Xo one thought of loaning or borrowing nt less than ten per cent, nnd the average bank rate was probably not lower than fifteen per cent. The decrease in interest has been con stant, so that now a borrower wanting any considerable sum, nnd having first class security, can get money nt from six lo eight per cent. TO ST.

Show your inotrest in tho education of your children by attending the institute and thus also encourage tho teachers. There have been many homes start ed for ex soldiers, ex sailors, aged people and unfortunates of dilTerent kinds, but it remained for St. Joseph to take the initiative in tho establishment of homes for ex-slaves. An institution of this character has been located at that city and is under process of construe lion, it can. of course accommodate only a limited number of those who are tit subjects for such nn asylum, but the example may be followed u other parts of the country and much good result. --The Republican party of Missouri, so far ns the present campaign is con cerned, is thoroughly harmonious nnd united. It can promise its ticket the full party vote in every county nnd township of the stnte. This is the re sult of the goou work done at Spring field. It is the result of intelligent politics. It is the result of good horse tense. The party's chances of winning to day are30 per cent better than they would have been if a candidate of n fac tion had been placed at tho head of the ticket.

He has always been n leader of the party and is at pre sent chairman of the county central committee; he has always been in the harness of the pnrty-since he attained his majority. This is a critical year in Missouri's politics, nnd the party should have its strongest and most " capable men at the head of the ticket. Mr. O'Fallon, should he be nominated and elected, will make Holt county nnd able, conscientions representative.
