IIlLL dodged the vote on-the sil
ver question in the senate the'other
day which emphasizes the fact that
he is nothing- if not a democrat.
The democrats of Kentucky seem
to hare the idea this year that it
matters not who they put up for
president "'-they car not win; which
is about correct.
The name of David B. Hill was
hissed in the New Jersey democrat
ic convention, a fact which will
hardly facilitate the writing a letter
of withdrawal on his part in favor
It is true, as Senator Sherman,
says, that "the only way to make
gold and silver work in harmony is
to put them on a ratio fixed upon
market value," and the republican
party will never consent to ak:y oth
er method of adjusting the matter.
Uncle Sam still leads the van.
Just last Monday the government
made a test of the new armor plate
materia), nickle steel. The armor
plating used is the heaviest yet
manufactured. The 500 pound pro
jectile rebounded from the plate
without breaking or penetrating it
in a dangerous extent. One ot the
balls bounded back to the muzzle of
the gun. a distance of 135 feet. One
of l'ie projectiles was of recent
vKTican mauufacturefaud wasun-
i irv il by the contact. The for
v ... projectiles used were broken
by tiie impact, lhis shows that the
United States is on the lead for both
offensive and defensive armor.
Commercial disaster has followed
the repeal of tariff laws or the rad
ical reduction of duties in every in
stance in the history of this country
except in 1816, at which time we
were engaged in a war with Mexico,
which was followed immediately by
the Crimean war, when England
had most of her pauper labor en
listed as soldiers. Even then dis
tress was only delayed. When the
fects of war abroad and of the dis
covery of gold iii Caliiornia wore
off, the free trade tariff of lSlOgot in
its work and brought on the de
la3?ed but still inevitable panic. In
1S57 the country learued that while
the evil might be retarded and de
layed, ultimate escape from the
panic that always follows demo
cratic "tariff reform" was impossi
ble. FRUIT JARS ARE ALSO CHEAPER.
"Every poor man buys fruit jars,
and fruit jars are going to be high
er on account of the McKinley
law." That was the cry of the free
traders two years ago. A year ago
it was actively proclaimed that the
prices had "gone up." Terrible
thing, and all on account of the
McKinley law. But thrifty house
wives went on canning cherries
and raspbeiries and all the berries
in their season. Meanwhile, prices
on glass fruit jars are lower now
than they have ever been before in
the history of the United States.
This declaration is made on the
statement of the agent of one of the
largest glass fruit jar dealers in the
west- Presuuiab'' .he knew what
he was talking bout, for he was
prepared to sell the article in a.ny
quantity desired. lie stated that
last year for a short time there was
an advance in prices, but it was not
legitimately due to the McKinley
law, or to any other law, except that
the demand exceeded the supply of
jars. The advance did not come
early in the season. It came after
the dimensions of the fruit crop be
gan to be realized. But this year
fruit canners can buy all the jars
they want for lower prices than they
ever paid before, and they will get
American made jars - for their
THE Burlington, la., Hawkeye has
made a new discovery in the road
problem, which at least has the
virtue of cheapness. It savs that
the discover f his new idea was
made at Carthage, 111., several years
ago during the fair of the Hancock
county agricultural board. The
weather had been very dry and by
the middle of the week the roads
leading to the fair grounds had be
come nearly hub deep in dust, no
amount of sprinkling seeming to
have any effect. Finally as a last
resort a number of loads of straw
were scattered along the principal
highway 'to "the fair grounds and
water sprinklers kept going all
night. To the surprise and gratifi
cation of the good people of that
city the plan proved a fine success
and the dust was kept "laid" during
the remainingdays of the fair with
out difficult. Now comes the inter
esting part of the story. During
the various muddy spells that
have ocurred since the plan wa
utilized, it was found that the
highway thus "strawed" was always
in the best condition. Some wise
farmers down in the lower part of
Hancock county, continues the
Hawkeye, taking note of this have
spread straw over several hundred
yards of very bad roadway in their
vicinity, and it is now stated that
this piece cf road is to-day the only
good road in that part of the
country. The Uowen Chronicle,
in referring to the matter, says:
"Straw makes a road that is not
muddy in wet weather. Don't burn
up old hay or straw; it is just as
easy to have it on the roads. There
is enough straw wasted each winter
to cover the roads of the country."

The Burlington & Missouri River
railroad has prepared and has now
ready for distribution a new hand
book, treating of the opportunities
which NebrasKa, nortwestern Kan
sas and eastern Colorado offer to
farmers, business men and inves
tors. ' This book has been gotten out for
the information of eastern people,
particularly those who have friends
west of the Missouri; it is written in
pleasant, easily understood style,
by one who thoroughly knows his
subject, and is-confidently recom
mended as likely to stimulate im
migration to a very considerable ex
tent. It pictures Nebraska and those
portions of Kansas and Colorado
adjacent to it, not as Ihey might be,
but as they are.
It is thought that the best method
of distributing these hand books is
as follows: Parties in Nebraska,
Kansas and Colorado, having
friends in the east who are likely to
be interested in such literature as
this, are invited to send the names
and addresses of these latter to Mr.
1. Francis, Gen'l Passenger and
Ticket Agent, Burlington Route,
Omaha, Neb., who will take pleasure
in forwarding, postpaid, to such ad
dresses as many copies as desired.

that Pain Balm has completely

O the wrongs, the misery, the suf

unutterable which are being heaped
to-day upon the heads of the help
less and the innocent, upon wives

through the agency of the drink

The national commission of the
Columbian exposition has decided
to have a synopsis of all petitions
against the opening of the gates on
Sunday and the sale of liquor on
grounds printed for the benefit of
the commission, in order that the
members might have them for ref
erence when the time comes for the
discussion of the questions. The
right of petition was eulogized as
one of the dearest of American in
stitutions. The New Jersey legislature passed
with but three dissenting votes, a
bill to close the state exhibit, and
requested the closing of the Colum
bian exposition gates on Sunday.
This makes five states that have re

We are glad to see that increased
emphasis is being laid in many
quarters upon the importance of
temperance work in and through
the churches. We need stronger,
more frequent and direct teaching
on this subject from the pulpit,
and we need more of the practice of
temperance, and especially of total
abstinence, in the pews. A tremen
dous responsibility is resting up
on the Christian chuich to-day
with regard the liquor traffic. It
has the power within it to sweep
this traffic from the earth, if it
would miUat forth. The only ques
tion is, when will it put it forth?
Surely the cry of the multitudes
who are being crushed under the
merciless tread of liquor monster is
not going up to God in vain: "Ven

To labor leaders, temperance

Be of brave heart, ye eager scouts

catch sometimes away ahead there
the muffled music of - our coming
feet? Oh, yes, the human biped is a
timid creature who loves to march
in platoons rather than to strike out
swiftly and alone, but he carires a
jewel here behind the forehead, and
is therefore the single sentient
creature concerning whom there is
hope. You can change his opinions
though they aie bone of his bone,
flesh of his flesh, and dearer to
him than his own right eye.
