THE price of wheat has advanced
in Fviirope, and our export trade in
that cereal is increasing rapidly.
Meantime the price of silver bul
lion is hardly holding its own. A
clear proof of the falsity of the as
sumption that the prices of silver
and wheat rise and fall together.
OUR Kansas exchanges are claim
ing that their State has raised this
year one-forthieth of the wheat
yield of the world, still Peffer Simp
son & Co.keep on telling the people
of the east what a deplorable con
dition the farmers of their State are
in. Blue Valley Blade.
AN IMPOSSIBILITY.
What does the democratic party
of Ohio propose as a remedy for the
evil condition which are mendaci
ously describes in its silver plank?
It proposes an impossibility the
free coinage of both gold, silver
and the double standard. There
can be no such thing as a double
standard. There may be an alter
nating standard, or a single stand
ard either of gold or silver, but the
standard must always be one or
the other of these metals. Free
coniage of both gold and silver
means the coinage of silver alone,
and the adoption of the silver stand
ard. Gold would be driv en out of
circulation. We would undoubted-
ly have plenty of money under the,;.:.. of mach jncjes iust received
free coinage policy and doubtless .
prices would mount higher by
jumps, but at what consequences
to trade and industry? The coun-trj-would
be Hooded with debased
currency, credit would be at an
end, and bankruptcy and ruin
would complete the work begun by
financial lunatics. Detroit Tribune.
and then it sometimes becomes
very dear to him who listens to it.
Friends of the farmers are very
plenty just now, especially among
those who are willing to sacrifice
personal interests for their coun
try's good in lilliiigofiices. Among
other items ot irratuitous advice
given to our "horny handed sons
of the field is "store your grain and
hold it for higher prices." This is
good advice, perhaps for without
doubt every grain of food of crop
of -1M91 will be granted at good
prices, but the advice given doesn't
tell his would-be constituent where
to store it and how to take care o
it.
The snrinir wheat crop is esti-
ma'tedat lHO.OOO.WX) bushels, which
would require 1,800 elevators; each
of 100,000 bushels capacity, or 3.WM
elevators of ."iO.OOO bushels capacity
each, and this last is as large as
the country elevators will average
Sunnose the crop is divided and
only one-half of it is held, it would
still require 1,800 elevators. Now,
this spring wheat is nearly all
grown in the newer portion of the
Northwest, where not instead of
3.000 country elevators are found,
and many of these have not the
proper facilities for handling the
new grain as it is handled by our
large elevators with their improved
machinery.
But the latest advice from the
"fanners' friend" is to build your
own granary and there store your
grain for the higher prices. Both
of these plans contemplate immedi
ate threshing, and not holding in
stack, as there is danger of loss by
fire when in straw. If the farmer is
as poor as his newly found friends
claim him to be he can not in every
case follow this advice; for he may
be living with his family in a "sod
house" for want of ability to build
a better, and he would be obliged
to sell some of his wheat to be able
to build his granary. But suppose
the country elevator and granaries
are all tilled and the grain is held
for the expected high price, who
shall control the delivery, so as not
to "break the market" with the rush,
when the panic for selling strikes
the thousands of holders? Or
where is the man, or the company
who will garantee the condition of
the grain when it comes out of the
elevator or granary where it has
lain unmoved for two, three, or six
months? It may go in No. 1. or '1,
and come out No. 4, or "rejected."
Every friend of his country
wishes to see the farmer as well as
every other laborer get the best
possible return for his toil; but the
best prices do not always come to
him who seeks for all there is in it.
Unwise advisers may lead our
fanners into unwise measures, and
before they decide to hold their
grain they must decide where to
hold it and how to handle it so as to
preserve its oualitv. In the above
calculation no consideration was
taken of the winter wheat crop,
which is esimated at over Se'J,C3J,C3J
bushels, or double the amount of
the spring wheat; and if all of both
kinds is to be held then we must
multiply our above figures on
elevators by three. But the winter
wheat men are older in their busi
ness, and are apparently satisfied
with present prices, for they are
meeting the millers' demands for
their grain and freelj' bringing it
forward. Whether they expect
higher prices or not the indications
are that a great many of them pre
fer selling and getting out of debt
to running any risks by waiting
further developments. Inter

The color line has been estab

Republic, which has become an or
ganization for the looting of the

the "niggers" must flock by them

after be colored encampments, as
there are colored schools and col

"The color line" has not been estab

difficult to state more barefaced
falsehoods in the same space.

There was n hesitating nibble at the
dojr knob, then the duor was slowly
o(eued and in lie came, looking first at
one and then tho others of us. us if i'i
search of a friendly or enconrain
glance.
His clothes were oldbnt well brunhed.
and his shoes had seen their let dav.
lie was tall, thin and a hungry looking
individual, who would scarcely have
cast a shadow when aidewise to the
light, lie had no doubt seen better
days, but now he was of the aiaAS of
"shabby genteel" who some way or other
manage to exist on the barest pittance.
Keniaving an old slouch hat from his
head with a npasmodio jerk, he turned
to the man who was nearest the door
and asked, "la this the place where they
patent galluswea and braces?"
When informed that it was he seemed
pleased to think he had found the right
place and asked to see the chief, flat in
hand, he sauntered up to the chiefs desk.
and after a few remarks about the
weather he reached down in his trousers
pocket and brought up a contrivance
wnicn at nrst giauce looxeu nae an orui-
nary snoe horn. With a click and a
snap, however, he turned up from the
small end a corkscrew.
We had all seen him before, and
knowing there was fun ahead, by this
time there was a general suspension of
work and all were intently watching
the proceedings. With the fire of genius
in his eyes and a tremor in his voice he
exclaimed as he held the contrivance up
to view: "There's a fortune in that for
somebody, but they don't seem to see it.
That little thing fills a long felt void. A
man always needs a corkscrew in the
evening, and after he has drawn the
corks and imbiled the contents of sev
eral bottles, how would he get his hat
on in the morning if it were not for this
little hat persuader?
USEFUL. I.ITTIE THINGS.
'Both of these little necessaries are
here in a neat and compact little device,
which, if it were only manufactured and
put on the market, would sell like hot
cakes."
No one seemed to want to take hold of
it, however, and a good thing is going
begging from the lack of a few dollars
to give it a 6tart. People don't Know
what they are missing.
See that?" and he held out a jack-
knife with a patent needle threading at
tachment. "Another good thing! Some
thing which bachelors have been want
ing for a long time, llow many of you
can thread a needle?
"You all carry a jackknife; every man
does.
"With one provided with this little
attachment of mine any man could
thread a needle as good as a woman.
"I tried to interest capitalists in this
little scheme, but it shared the same
fate as the other. One man said he
wonld take hold of it if it had bootjack
and mouth organ attachments, but as it
was he did not want it. Some people
are hard to please, but," drawing a bun
dle from his coat tail pocket and waving
it in the air, "I've got it this time, and
"For Ion time, hare I chased th
frisky dollar, but it has given me the
slin. Thank heaven I have at last found
the way to fame and fortune.
"Gentlemen," he said, as lie slowly un
wrapped the package and held up to our
astonished gaze a combination of straps,
cords, pulleys, buckles and large red
shields, "behold the greatest invention
of the age! This is a combined suspender
and adjustable liver pad. To show you
what it is and how it works I will just
slip it on over my coat. There, now,
isn't that a grand thing!
THE LIVER PAD.
"You no doubt perceive the great ad
vantage of having the liver pad con
nected with your suspenders. The pad
is adjustable to fit all livers.
"Any one can wear it, no matter where
their liver is or where they think it is.
How many people know where their
liver is? Not many, I warrant you.
How would a man who supposed his
liver was up under his right arm man
age with the ordinary liver pad? He
couldn't manage at all; he would die of
liver complaint in a month's time. This
being adjustable can be shifted to all
parts of the body; thus people can have
their liver pad wherever they wish it.
"Gentlemen, think of the people walk
big around today suffering because they
cannot cover the Dlace where thev sup
pose their Liver to be with the ordinary
liver pad. Why, it is a beautiful thing,
and with a Sellerslike air he exclaimed:
"There's millions in it! Gentlemen, you
all being experts in this line must appre
ciate its many advantages and possibili
ties. "Do any of you want to get rich? To
any one who will kindly advance me
enough to pay for my patent I will give
a half interest in this, the grandest thing
of the kind ever dreamed of. It's a
chance of a Lifetime, and you shouldn't
miss it."
No one appeared anxious to invest in
liver pads, either through lack of confi
eence or of sufficient wealth to do so, or
both, and sadly taking it off and wrap
ping it up carefully and stewing it
away he shuffled out, muttering in an
undertone to himself something about
"greatest invention of the age fortune's
last chance." Washington Star.
