paragraph in the Oregonian about
freakish relations among' animals caus
es to be brought to light a very singu
lar circumstance on the farm of It. J.
Moore, at Molalla Corners. A 16-months-old
heifer lost her calf and two
or three days afterward it was noticed
that she did not require milking'. In
vestigation led to the discovery of the
fact that the heifer had adopted a
4-months-old pig-, which 6he would call
and suckle as affectionately as if it had
been her own calL This relation has
been sustained some weeks to the evi

the shoat is sleeker and weighs several
pounds more than its companions of the

"And nowwill somebody in the audi

stepping- to the front of the stage and

The professor repeated his request.
Same result.
"I am sorry," he said at last, after
waiting" several minutes, "that I shall
be unable to perform my advertised
feat of swallowing a sword, but you

is not my fault. I will now proceed
with the wonderful performance of the

Cure for Curiosity.
Inquisitive Yankee visitors to the
Ammen ram while lying" at Hath have
been unable to refrain from meddling1
with the machinery of the guns and
other interesting pieces of mechanism
found about the ship, despite the big1
placards desiring" them to keep their
"hands off," which the officers plenti
fully strewed about the vessel. So in
order to discourage such investigators
several of the machines wich seemed
most to attract the inquisitive were
connected to a powerful electric bat
tery, the "hands off" sig-n being', of
course, retained also. Since the idea
was put into effect the ship's company
has had lots of fun, and the visitors
have begun to have respect for a rea
sonable request.
The Unlveralty of Omaha.
Nebraska has many creditable insti
tutions of learning colleges that have
wrought a grand work and given the
state name and fame extending' far be
yond its own confines and conspicuous
among1 them will be found that embod
ied in the heading" of this article. It
comprises three departments, namely:
IJelievue College, Omaha Medical Col
lege and . Omaha Dental College, the
latter just organized. Bach depart
ment is conducted on the plan of doing
the best possible work. Bellevue College,
as is well known, was the pioneer in
Nebraska for high grade work, being1
in some particulars in advance of even
the state university. All of the high
schools of Nebraska which prepare
fully for the state university, have the
additional studies necessary for en
trance to Ilellevue College. The insti
tution maintains an academy or prepar
atory department, and for those who
desire to teach or become proficient in
music it offers superior advantages, the
talent employed being the best to be
obtained. The college is ten miles
from Omaha, the metropolis of the
state, and is a delightful and attrac
tive location. It is far enoug-h away
to be out of surht and sound of the
bustling city, and yet near enough to
be in touch with advantages that the
metropolis brings. Many desirable
features in connection with the college
might be dwelt upon, but from what
has been said the reader can draw his
or her conclusions, corresponding with

A Wonder of Antiquity.
One of the greatest wonders of an
cient Egypt, says the St. Louis Repub
lic, was the famous artificial bo'ly of
water called Lake Moeris, According"
to Herodotus, "the measure of its cir
cumference was 3,300 furlongs, which
is equal to the entire length of Egypt
along" the seacost." The excavation,
which was made in the time of King"
Moeris (the memnon cf the Greeks and
Romans) was of a varying- depth and its
center was occupied by two pyramids,
the apexes of which were 300 feet high
er than the surface of the water. The
water for this gigantic artificial reser
voir was obtained from the Nile
through a canal, which six months of
the year had an overflow, correspond
ing to high and low water in the river.
The canal gradually filled with sand
and the lake has long since evaporated,
but the bottom is still one of the most
fertile tracts in Egypt.

John V. Farwell, Replying to Comptrol
ler Eckels, Points Oat the Meed of In
ternational Bimetallism to Restore
Lost Values of Property.
(J. V. Farwell, in Chicago Record.)
The comptroller of the currency
joins the secretary of the treasury in
the campaign of educating the people
for the next election. Evidently, polit
ical fences need mending to control the
masses for the gold interest and the
Democratic party.
Do they see the handwriting on the
wall of history "Weighed in the bal
ance and found wanting?" Does not
the wisdom of the centuries weigh
facts and make their arguments short
weight? Time will tell.
It Is indicative of imperfect "hind
sight" that this discovery has not been
made in the present discussion by gold
men of its relation to money standard
and prosperity. The ultra-gold men
are just as wrong as the ultra-silver
men, as both are practical monometal
lists, making half equal to the whole,
and, therefore, radically wrong. This
discussion before it is closed will find
the people, whose votes both factions
are seeking, on the side of interna
tional bimetallism, and both the great
parties will be compelled to make that
the chief plank in their platforms.
Comptroller Eckels did make one prac
tical suggestion, viz.: "WTe must take
things as we find them practically
and not sentimentally."
Nothing is
more certain than that, and I will an
swer this statement with another:
What was practical and beneficent for
centuries can be made practical on the
same lines by the same means now
and may we not add, that if both met
als were needed to keep values at par
before our country became so marvel
ously wealthy in property through her
fostering of domestic industries by a
protective tariff, thus making her raw
materials into tangible and exchange
able values outside of gold and silver
would not both metals as money now
increase her power to develop and in
crease her marvelous natural re
sources? Our silver-producing states are a
small factor in this problem; our prop
erty interests combined constitute the
larger factor in it; our annual hay crop
exceeds the product of silver many
times, and the annual additions of sil-
ver to the accumulation of all times are
perhaps as 1 to 100 of the accumulated
and annual
additions to values in
That silver is still used and held up
to gold value by France and the United
States is only an argument strong as
can be made of the need bf more legal
money and of the folly of not giving
silver everywhere full money functions,
bo that its commercial value can again
be relied on as its coinage value.
Its coinage now having been stopped
entirely by all governments which had
any power over the question before
1873, the money demand for it has been
legally destroyed, and what interna
tional bimetallists demand is that this
mammoth wrong shall be righted. Mr.
Eckels' reference to our coinage in the
past, in its bearings on prices in con
nection with Mulhall's statements of
our marvelous increase in wealth for
over twenty years after our industries
were put on their feet by an enforced
war tariff, and his query as to why
prices have shown the same tendency
in Europe as here down down in
order to prove a rise in the intrinsic
value of gold, entirely independent of
demonetization of silver, is most in-
genious, but equally erroneous. This ;
argumentative query is fully answered
by the fact that the cost of gold in
labor since 1S73 has been reduced fully
as much, if not more, by improved
methods and machinery in mining and
reducing ores and cheaper transporta
tion of ores, than that of other prop
erty; and the attempt to hide this fact
and charge all decline in prices of sil
ver and other property to like causes
is not honest argument. This opinion
may be honest with some. With prac
tical students of ability it cannot be
It claims all things for itself and de
nounces others quite well, but it de
nounces most wrongfully the conten
tion of air property-owners, including
silver owners, that legislation in favor
of gold is chargeable with the decline
in all prices, and that gold should be
made to share in it as well as prop
erty, instead of grabbing a 100-per cent
advance as a virtuous and innocent in
crement of value, which they claim the
God of righteousness by natural law has
brought to their coffers, instead of its
having been done by their own legal
tools in the parliaments of the world.
Mr. Eckels' reference to the part
played by bank credits as a substitute
for money is as old as demonetization,
and his own experience with banks as
to what they coud do in the line of
making deposits of money credits (and
not money) play the part of real money,
when the people lost confidence in ideal
money in 1893, should have made his
"hindsight" more reliable as an in
dorser of methods invented as a neces
sity to serve the uses of money in pros
perous times, but which in a panic, as
he knows quite well, proved to be only j
"straw bail" for the huge gold criminal, ! an ob3ect lesson in our municipal af

discussion by a government official to
give it a gold burnish. It is not gen

1 2 n X ill t .
since 1S73 can by no official or other
necromancy be divorced from legal de
monetization of silver as the main
cause making a double demand for
gold by destroying the demand for sil
ver, except for the arts and its pres
ent use as token money does not alter
the general principle involved in that
i creation of new money and property
conditions, by a law which abrogated
the natural law of labor cost, both for
' money and property. The testimony of
i Lewis Wolowski (whoever he may be)
; before the French money commission
j of inquiry of 1865 which he quotes
! only intensifies the justice of the cor
j relation of all values through (by his
j formula) "a measure of values which
shall be stable during the periods which
j embrace the transactions of men."
j That is, which shall not give gold an
j advance and property a decline as
legislation has done if. he means to be
squarely honest in his formula.
Mr. Eckels brings out another "old
chestnut," "overproduction of silver."
Wrhy not talk of the overproduction of
population and property? These must
go on increasing or the law of prog
ress will be reversed.
Should not legal money increase rel
atively to property, and should it not
be allowed to do so in the last twenty
years, the same as before, to be just to
j other values created by labor?
I This question cannot be honestly
! solved by the continued rise of gold
only, which must be revealed by a look
; at the future through an honest "hind-
sight" telescope, such as Mr. Eckels has
I given us in his Mulhall quotation of
' American progress.
Again, Mr. Eckels should remember
! as the answer to his final statement
! that "we as debtors cannot dictate to
j England" that honest bimetalhsts are

j land's business interests are now ask

Bank of England directors are now
heading the list of a 100,000 campaign
fund to put practical blmetallists at the
head of her government in the next
election in order to give to the world
international bimetallism.
I therefore again quote his statement:
"Let us deal with all facts as they are."
To make money facts and property
facts what they should be and not con
tinue a world-wide wrong because ig
norance or fraud or a combination of
both have made these present facts
; what they should not be. Thus present
; facts are now commanding the prac

j interests here and abroad in a warm

Ex-Congressman Cheadle's vigorous
argument in the Record that the United
! States alone can restore the commer
j cial value of silver by free coinage at

countries before demonetization kept
its value stable by its free coinage is
( tantamount to saying that a fraction

; remains for him and Comptroller
: Eckels to join the genuine internation
; al bimetallic party to make their fig
i ures of speech square with the geom
j etry and arithmetic of scientific mone
; tary figures. They will be welcome to
i this cosmopolitan party of progress and
i reform.
That party only can win. If either
i gold or silver alone wins they will lose,
while if international bimetallism wins
: we all win and we will all be happy
! when what was money for centuries
j and is money with us again will be
j money everywhere ounce for ounce
; and pound for pound. Then the abnor
i mal production of either metal, as an
annual addition to the existing volume,
wm scare no one, and whoever raises
such a ghost hereafter, with such his
tory as the last twenty years have
made, will be considered only as an
other argumentative thief trying to
spoil our "hindsight" after, instead of
before, such an experience.
It will be easily seen that the able
argument of Mr. Calvert in the Record,
and, in fact, of all the writers on that
side of the money discussion, are in
tended to convince voters that more
legal money is not needed that legis
lation cannot create a demand for sil
ver that will restore the lost relations
of gold and silver to all other property
as a measure of it, and " it did that it
would be repudiation of debts, hence
gold must continue as the arbiter of al
other values, notwithstanding its pro
duction is limited, while that of prop
erty is limitless, and that cost of pro
duction for both has been and will be
constantly reduced. It is also easily
seen that with such conditions con
tinued the rise in gold and the decline
in property thit must nnly be meas
ured by it, in their code of financial
morals, will also continue until the
ability to corner all property with a
corner in gold will only be measured
by the disposition of human avarice to
do it.
Shall we increase such a power over
us all for the benefit of a few, or shall
we compel all values in the future to be
governed in their exchangeability rel
atively to the changed conditions of
cost of production and extent of con
sumption for the whole list of human
merchandise or human luxuries created
by the ingenuity of man?
Mayor Swift has brought to the light
! dous corruptions, and the colossal pro
! portions of the wealth of nations accu
mulated in the present century has
tempted the silver legislation of 1873,
which since then has doubled the ex-
changeable value of property for it
over one-nair, witnout any reiauve
change in the labor cost of each. The
only argument that so great a man as
a . . A.
Edward Atkinson can offer against suih
a crime is ridicule, and serves it ut to
voters in the columns of the Record.
It shows the strength of the gold cause
in grand style, and I like it as a con
fession of weakness. Because barter in
destructible property by barbarians
has been supplanted by a metallic
money system in civilized nations to
effect such exchanges, therefore resto
ration of silver to money functions
would be a barbarian act. That, in
short, is his argument and from Bos
ton! About forty years since I visited a
town in Massachusetts, and in looking
over the official records I found that
the parish minister was paid his salary
by municipal law in all sorts of articles,
one of which was "flip." "Flip," and
not cows, was legal tender in Mr. At
kinson's own state long after the cow
was demonetized in India. Which is
the most civilized and civilizing cur
rency? Let his erudition answer.
That -minister very likely got drunk on
"flip;" surely that was a more evanes
cent and unstable money than cows,
and that was In Massachusetts and not
in India.
Difficult Problem Resulting from Ambi
tions of the Modern Wife.
We have read with deep interest a
newspaper article on "What Will the
New Woman Do With the Old Man?"
The writer is a new woman and pre
sumably has an old man. But he is
everywhere, is useful in fashion, has
sincere purposes, and means well. His
fate is or ought to be a matter of con
cern to every one. The description
does not necessarily imply one who has
become gray and decrepit. He may be
in the purple bloom of life. It applies
not to his years, but to the order of his
ideas, says Pittsburg Dispatch. We
learn that "the new woman wants as
either brother or husband a man who
can comprehend her. aspirations, can
sympathize with her and be a helpmeet
to her in their attainment." But what
are her aspirations? Those hinted at by
the writer in no essential particulars
differ from those of the old woman.
Give the old man a chance. Tell him
precisely what those aspirations are
with which he ought to sympathize.
Many a time has he been lectured for
not understanding what has never been
explained to him. He is confessedly a
trifle stupid. All the more reason why
his duty should be made plain to him.
As a rule he would sympathize with
anything his better half names and
think that purchasing peace In the
family cheaply. Will the new woman
please state her aspirations fully and
clearly? But, to come to the question:
"There is nothing left the new woman
to do but to renovate and repair the
old man convert him, if possible, into
the new man. There are many ways
and sorts of conversion. Reason, per
suasion, strategy or even compulsion."
Three of these methods of bringing the
old man to terms have been long used
with marked success. The fourth is
doubtful. It is said that "he inclines
to pull back, like a mule." He does,
indeed, at times and then compulsion
is the worst of all ways of dealing with
him. We hope the new woman will not
try that. What is to be done with the
old man in the event of the failure of
all these methods is left to the imagin
ation. What does the old man think
of it, anyhow?
Oklahoma Furnishes an Ice Cream Storj
That Heat the Record.
When the recent storm was over in
Tina, Ok., the late householders, view
ing the remains, were greatly sur
prised at finding upon the supposed
site of the grocery a large and solid
mass of excellent ice-cream in bulk,
melting rapidly away under the sun,
but still good at heart. The explana
tion, after all, was simple. The light
ning stroke which destroyed the roof
of the building and shattered every
barrel and bottle in the place fused
and melted a dozen milk cans, releas
ing their precious contents. Directly
over the cans on the shelves were a
number of bags of sugar, a sack of
flour, and seven bottles of vanilla ex
tract, whose released contents fell into
the mass, says New York Recorder.
Before the milk had time to flow
away it was buried up in such
hailstones as even Oklahoma never saw
before, a fall of two feet occurring in
almost an instant. The ice balls ming
ling with the contents of a dozen bar
rels of salt, which had been standing
about the milk cans, produced such an
intense cold that the mingled milk,
vanilla, sugar, and flour were instant
ly solidified on the surface, and in half
an hour became a solid mass to the
