John F. Handle? Co. ara our Portland arents. and eoola. of th A.torLu. n Another Important lesson taush! by the be had every morning; at their staud, 124 Third street. Attention is belnr attracted anew to i the question of the expe&ency of estab lishing a postal aavlnga-bank system in ' the United Sutes. The postmaster gen- i ersl has lately secured from the postU authorities of the Dominion an exposition of the postal savings-bank system In op eration there and In addition has received letters relative to the system from cor respondents throughout the country, par ticularly as regards the ajvaniaees of the system for farmers In districts where banking facilities are limited. While nj official pronouncement has been made ly the postmaster general In reference to his position cn the question, the icllef Is expressed In Washington iUsii:chcs that he will direct attention to des.raUj features In the systems of the countries which have adopted the idea unj w.ll recommend the establishment postal savings banks here. Secretary Sherman has found it neces- I sury gently to admon:h tho state of ! Iowa that some of Its recen: tax legisla tion is violative of the treaty rights of ! citizens of Swlu ?-rlind. A-ticIo XL cf the treaty of N'ovemler .'5, between the United States and the Swiss republic pro ides that no highjr Impost, under whatever name, shall be "xactel from the ! cltiiens of one of ihe two countr.es re- ' siding or established In the other than I shall be levied upon the citizens of the country In which they reside, nor ary contribution whatever to which the lat ter shall not be liable. This provision of the treaty has been broupht to the attention of the governor of Iowa by a letter, in which Secretary Sherman says thai It has been orally represented to the department by the Swiss minister that complaint has been made cf the fact that the state has levied a tax uopn the premium income of European insu rance companies greater iban that im posed upon the premium income of Amer ican companies. This admonition will doubtless have the desired effect. I So much complaint has bten heard from , farmers and their representatives against I i the railroads In the past that a propos tlon ! the government might be expected to commend itself to them. It is with a that one' sense of surprise, therefore, reaJs in the dispatches that the tanner-,' congress, which met at SU Paul last week, defeated a resolution lu.k.ng to j government ownership by an .jvetw.-.e'm- j !ng majority. Evidently tb gathering at 8t. Paul was not dominated by a radical or revolutionary spirit. On re.i olutlon by the congress favor.d a discriri lnatlng duty In favor of goods imported In American vessels and Included a pro position for the purchase of foreign ves sels which can be regl?r-d if th-- on ...!- give satisfactory bond to build other Ves sels of equal tonnage w.th-'i a rei.s ,iabl; time. An amendment to the constitution was adopted which widens the scop of the organization, permitting all institu tions and organizations interested in ag riculture to be represented In the e v xr'-st hereafter. RAPID DIFFUSION OF MONEY.. Philadelphia Times. The official statement issued by the na tional treasury, of the financial condition of the country on the 1st of September, should be carefully studied by every In ' telllgent citizen. It presents conclusive facts and figures against the calamity howlers and cheap money theories. I The total amount of money In the coun try, of every kind, Is S2,3C9,K4,335, and the amount In the treasury Is T03,6T4,3?7. The money in the treasury embraces 3!S,9O8,078 standard silver dollars, which eannot bef forced Into circulation, and fK,3,28S of subsidiary silver coin.. The total amount cf all kinds of money in the country,, as given by the treasury report, may be somewhat misleading, from the fact that It gives the total amount of .standard silver dollars issued, onanist xvlileh t.lT!U12,Vl of silver ovvim e.it.a Imyo lieen inuel, anJ to Pl.t (in tlif ;ipMniu amount of BHify m i l.o country In doul-liM.

Altogether the monthly statement of the 'rcsury points unerringly to an era of businesi and in dustrial prosperity. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Dlsr races Remedy always affords prompt re- lief.

A large part of all diseases are tiaceable directly to Impurities In the blood and can be cured by eliminating them with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The first thing it does Is to put the whole digestive system into per fect order. It stimulates the appetite, "X eltes a copious secretion of the digestive fluids and promotes assimilation. It sear'-h'-s out disease germs wherever they may be, kills them and forces them out of the system.
