French mint rate. It was not necessary j
that "all the silver in the world," as the
American goldite puts it, should b j

Salaries of Ball Fighter.
Spanish bull fighters get salaries as
large as those of exceptionally great
actors. "First swords," like Mazzan
tani or Guerrita, are among" the richest
men in Spain. Guerrita, who isnotyet
30, earns an income which is never less
than 540,000 in one year, and owns near
Cadiz, a villa and park, where in the
winter he entertains his friends with
lavish hospitality. Mazzantini has
$400,000 invested, and it is a bad year
when he does not earn 550,000. Keverte

Commission of Eneland. given on the
fourth day of March, 18S7, H. II. Gibbs,
then a director and ex-governor of the
eaiiK 01 rngianu, ut-uueu uhuciul.o. which is of the
as follows:
1. An open mint, to which every
man may bring either gold or silver
to be coined.
2. A fixed ratio which the gold and
silver coins are to bear to each other.
3. The enactment that the money so
coined shall be legal tender to any
amount of the option of the payer.
Any limitation upon the coinage of
either or upon its legal tender, de
stroys one of the fundamental princi
ples upon which bimetallism rests. The
other at once becomes the standard,
while the one subiected to a restric
say he can get an ounce of silver,
or its equivalent in gold, for a bushel.
But measured in American money
gold standard, that
ounce of silver is only worth about
one-half as much as it was in 1873. So ,
that while the East Indian is receiving
the same price as formerly for his
wheat, the American only gets about !
half as much as he used to. The very ,
moment silver began to decline in the
English market it acted as an induce
ment to the English exporter to buy
wheat in some silver-using country ra
ther than the United States. He could
first buy the silver at a profit, and then
buy as much wheat with a given
amount of silver as he ever could. This

Nor is this merely a theory. It is a
principle as well established as the law
of "supply and demand." In fact, it is
one of the most perfect illustrations
of the working of that law, and its cor
rectness has been proved by seventy
years of European monetary history.
In 1S03 France threw open her mints
to the free coinage of both metals at
the ratio of 15V2 oz. of silver to 1 oz. of
gold, and this mint ratio controlled the
relative market values, not only in
France, but everywhere, up to the year
In 1S1G England adopted the gold
nandard, and at once put forth an un
usual demand for gold. Had there been
no bimetallism in France, gold would
immediately have risen greatly in
value. Ae it was, though, a large part
of the gold required by England was
furnished by France, but the demand
of the latter for silver to take the place
of the gold withdrawn by England op
erated c.s a compensation, and prevent
ed the silver from falling or the gold
from rising, except to a very limited

and the East Indians had no use for
gold. So England exchanged large
amounts cf gold for French silver.
This, combined with the immense
gold production of California and Aus
tralia, grained France of a large por
tion of her silver. The conditions of
1S16 were now reversed, and England's 1
extraordinary demand for silver was
offset by the French demand for gold
to take its place, and again the parity
was preserved. . i

friends could only realize the fact that
the main sources of information from
which the people of their respective or-
ganizations have derived financial wis- j

party and later the people's party, the
political situation would be simplified.
The goldbugs in both old parties are
planning to head off the silverites, and
the republican and democratic silver
men are planning how they can head oft
the populists. Yet the populists (who
include a great many of the old green
backers), are the very chaps who have
persistently kept up the agitation of the
financial question.
While the two old parties were quar

"played out," as Mr. Bland truly says,
the populists were making a fight on
the money question, the real issue.

There's a difference between being full of thanks
giving, and being full of Thanksgiving dainties.
But the one thing generally leads to the other. How
-an it be helped when the turkey is so good, and the
pie so enticing? Here's a helpful hint. For that
full feeling after Thanksgiving take a pill. Not
any pill, mind you. There are pills that won't help
3'ou. Take the pill that will. It's known as Ayeis
Pill and it's perfect. It is sugar-coated, pleasant
to the palate, and its operation, like that of nature,
is effective and without violence. Keep this in your
mind if you want to enjoy the holiday season:
