THAT SCHOOL MA'AM CIRCULAR.
There was never a more cowardly,
mean, ungentlemauly thing done in poli
tics than the seudingoutof that circu
lar to the school teachers of this county
by the Laucaster county republican com
Some of the young ladies when they
received it were frightened and sat down
and cried. The older and more experi
enced ones viewed it with considerable
alarm and started out to inquire what
was expected of them. It is reported
that one replied by letter and asked if
it was expected that she should try to
teach the pupils from Sound Money,
a publication of the Wall Street Reform
club, saying that some one sent it to
her regularly, but adding that she was
really not competent, as she had never
read one of them.
Auother went to a member of the
school board in very great trepidition
and asked what she should do,
saying that she really knew
nothing at all about the money question,
and if he would please tell her what was
expected of her she would do it if she
could, for she didn't want to lose her
place. The board member explained to
her that it was a political circular and
the school board had nothing to do with
it, aud that she was under no obligation
to pay any attention to it whatever.
This young lady went away with her
fears allayed, but not. wholly reassured,
for several times since she has inquired
of other parties what they thought she
ought to do. .

Indianapolis is the great place where
the fake dispatch factory is located

what the populists are going to do. The
biggest fake of all was printed in the

press association (headquarters in
Omaha) is going to withdraw all the
joint electors put up by populists and
democrats in various states. From the
head line over the dispatch it is evident
that VanDerVoort and Uosewater are
at last in the same boat and with their
coats off, are pulling for the same har

RAISING SUN FLOWERS.
"I am going to raise sun flowers in
stead of oats hereafter" said a Nebraska
farmer. "1 have figured it all out and
there is more money in it. Yon see the
sun flower costs nothing for seed, or for
cultivation, while theoost of raising oats
is'tbout five cents more than I can sell
them for. The loss on forty acres of oats
is about $ 60. The loss on forty acres of
sunflowers would bp nothing. Sun
flowers are altogether the best crop to
"Tremondous results will follow the
action taken by the United States on
the money question and delay is im

The Pennsylvania democrats called a
new convention to undo the work of the

convention was goldbug from top to

of presidential electors and made a fu

places on the electoral ticket.
If the directors of the bank of England,
had been the same sort of financial fools
as the Stuffed Prophet and the Judas from
Kentucky, when they found that gold

that no more gold shall be shipped to

Besides raising the rate of discount the
bank has advanced the price of Ameri

THE "RESERVED POWER."
Lincoln, Sept. 12, 1896,-To the Edi
tor: The spirit in . which Mr. Bryan
treats those who groly slander him
by such epithets as "anarchist," "dema
gogue," etc., shows the nobility of his
nature. The manner in which he passes
by these morally deformed characters
brings him forth all the more noble in
the admiration of the good and patriotic.
Like a figure of light
On a background of night.
He need not be ashamed of the con
trast, lie is called an anarchist. Uerr
Most is not for him, and Mr. Henry
Clews is not for him. The man who
writes is significantly of a "reserved
power, of which the law knows notning.
He speaks for the Wall street saints, and
I suppose he knows what he is talking
about, Has any statute, either of the
state or nation, taken cognizance of this
"reserved power." Read between the
lines what this man says; and if it is not
omnious in its import, what can it be?
Let patriots of America weigh the
meaning of these words. Unlock the
door into which they lead and search
the secret combinations, the cunning
contrivances and the desperate purposes
that lurk behind the "reserved power."
Never was Herr Most Chairman of a se
cret conclave that involved more of an
archism than do these words. Let the
heroes of liberty arise and chain such
men by an overwhelming verdict at the
polls. Tell such men that American soil
is unhealthy for such anarchism as that
involved in that unholy threat. Send
forth into every cottage, in all our land
the full import of these words. Open
anarchism has never uttered words of a
broader and darker meaning, than they
imply. Socialism is an angelic realm,
by the side of this dark saying. This is
anarchism out done. It implies more
wrong doing than a thousand Chicago
riots. It is well for the voters of the land
to weigh the words, if weighed they can
be. They are of a desperate import. If
every voter of the land will read them,
and duly ponder them; one million men
who would have voted for McKiuley will
at once turn and vote for Mr. Bryan;
and elect him with such an overwhelm
ing majority that the "reserved power"
will not dare to utter another syllable.
The dynamite shell looks very innocent,
but it has a "reserved power," that up
roots, scatters, and devestates all with
in its reach. The reclining tiger that
licks your hand has a very dangerous
"reserved power.". Do not place your
self within his reach unless yon have
absolute control of him. If you but
analize theee words you can detect finan
cial disaster under their control, such as
no set of men should be permitted to
hold for a single hour. These words
should be an eye opener to the people
who have thought of voting for the per
petuation of this most dangerous power.
They have now the "reserved power" to
bankrupt the United States treasury in
one day, and send financial disaster
broad cast over fair Columbia's peaceful
"It is upon this reserve power that
Wall street now relies 1" Hear, yel hear,
yell Te men of America interpret the
deadly . import of this language. The
tyrants of the land have issued their ntli
matum. Ye serfs do not stir, but tamely
do our bidding or take tbe consequences.
Let no American freeman assert his right
at the ballot on the 3d day of November.
If you do certain untold reservo powers
will be hurled upon you, in comparison
with which your present burdens will
bear but a faint resemblance. The inno
cent people would like to know what
great power this is that is held with
threatening hands over their beads, if
they do not vote right for Wall street.
Mr. Clews, yon have stirred up our anx
ious curiosity. Tnis is a grave threat.
The liberty loving ifemand an explana
tion. Almost every organized body has some
reserve power. The American . people
hold to the right to vote as they please;
and place into office such men as will ful
fill their clearly expressed wishes. This
is their unreserved because it is an in
alienable right and power. The people
have been suspicious of your power and
influence, both in government as well as
among the people. And now you have
admitted that you hold a "reserve pow
er," which does not come to the surface
in the ordinary transactions, nor in the
lawful methods, but which is available
when needed, and will be exercised if
your interests require it.
You have thrown out the challenge of
defiance, to terrify if you can across
the path of a , brave and patient
people. Have you not been altogether
too rash? It is intended as an intimi
dation, to a brave people, who have
shown themselves equal to all occasions.
Has it not occurred to you that there is
a fearful "reserved power" lying back of
the millions who will vote for Mr. Bryan.
And they will vote for him though the
heavens should fall. I believe that I
speak the sentiment of millions of brave
men, when I say we scorn such language,
and instead of intimidating, and much
less inclining ni to vote as you would
have us do, we will only more unitedly
and more determinedly vote as we
please. You have used, not the langu
age of a patriot, but of a tyrant, and we
will deal with you in such a way that we
can happily say "sic, semper tyranus"
when the votes are cast. The American
people are the most patient and law-
abiding people on the earth, and the
masses will perpetrate no wrong on any
one, but if it must be they will protect
their rights. If the reserved power of
all street seriously intends to measure
strength with that of the people, the
end is self apparent. You have thrown
out the challenge. If the two powers are
ever arrayed in open couflict which God
forbid we are for "victory or death,"
then we may see the day when some
artist will sit on a broken shaft of Brook
lyn bridge and sketch the ruins of Wall
street. To the calmn and reflecting man
such expressions as that of Mr. Clews are
a most serious matter, and he who
weighs words has the right to ascribe to
them all their pertontions import Bnt

Cured of Bheumatimn for 10 Cent.
Our Chicago representative writes that
the above statement, although seemingly
absurd, is nevertheless absolutely true,
and the proof of it can be obtained by
addressing the Swanson Rheumatic Cure
Co. 167 Dearborn, street, Chicago, 111.,
who are the manufacturers of the famous
remedy "5 Drops," which worked such
an astonishing cure.
The Swanson Co. make an offer which
forcibly proves their supreme faith in
their medicine, which is backed by the
marvelous record of not a failure in over
200,000 cases treated. This offer is to
send out out for a brief period, prepaid
by post, their regular 25 cent sample
bottle for only 10 cents. This sample
though small, contains sufficient medi
cine to convince any one of its merit, aud
while it is not guaranteed to perfect a
cure, it has frequently done so. Ten
cents does not cover the cost for material
and postage for this sample bottle, and
while the Swanson Co. does not profess
to be actuated solely by philanthropise
motives in making this offer to the pub
lic, it is nevertheless a most humane
proposition to place within the reach of
every sufferer an opportunity to obtain
relief which may prove permanent, and
to thoroughly test for so trifling a sum a
medicine, which in the writer's opinion
has no peer. This offer ia made to iu
spire confidence among those have been
deceived and spent considerable sums ol
bard earned money for worthless prepa
tions. As the Swanson Co. depend for
their profit on sales promoted by these
sample bottles, distributed at a loss to
themselves, it is convincing evidence of
their own faith in their remedy. Our
representative further states that thou
sands of testimonials are received by the
company, replete with earnest expres
sions of gratitude, many of them affect
ing in their pathetic and eloquent praise
and thankfulness. They come from
those whose only dependence in the des
perate struggle to obtain the bare nec
essaries of life is their physical ability to
toil on unfettered by the chains of dis
ease that would consign them to the
necessity of an appeal to charity lor a
living. Further, on correspondent adds
that not only did be obtain immediate
relief from "5 Drops" during an acute
attack of rheumatism, and finally
was' cured, bnt he has personally
met many others in Chicago, whose ex
perieoce was similar to h is. tie pays a
high tribute to the gentlemen compos
ing the Swanson Co., their honorable
business methods, that strict adherence
to facts, and states that any claim they
may make concerning their medicine,
can be absolutely relied upon. In con
elusion, he adds that the Swanson Co..
has exhibited a very friendly feelinir for
our papers, patronizing them liberally I
and those of our people who deal with
them are assured of every consideration.
and may place in them every confidence.

I firmly believe that the bible is the

attempt to disguise from ourselves the

Lying at the foundation of organized

cannot long endure to the glory of its

tueiuHBjves, mat education is not essen
tial to successful farming. No -greater
mistake can be made than this. I know
of no occupation in which an education
and the thorough mastery of one's facul
ties will count for more than in the
pursuit of agriculture, viewed as a mere
bread-winning occupation, to say noth-i
ing of that higher relationship the in
dividual sustains to the state and the
Of course the farmer should be mu
ter of his occupation and the successful
prosecution of his calling is at all times
essential to his success in other respects;
but he must not neglect a higher edu-

intellectuality and his conception of re
ligion, under such circumstanena nrl
the duties it imposes, must be obscure,,
if not positively dim. It is only when
he is master of his calling and has m.
realizing sense of his responsibility to
his God, his family and his country and
discharges his duty with intelligence
and fidelity, that he becomes a really
valuable member of society.
If you remember that fully one-half
of the population of our country are en
gaged in farming and in the manufac
ture and distribution of farm imple
ments and products, and are, therefore,
directly interested in the cultivation of
the soil, an adequate conception will be
had of farmers as factors 'of society.
I believe it to be entirely within the
bounds of propriety for me to direct at
tention to some of the defects I have ob
served among farmers, or, I should, more
properly speaking, say, among - some
farmers. Passing over the mere lack, in
some instances, of skillfulness in the
planting, cultivation and harvesting of
crops, I desire to speak for a moment of
other and more radical defects.
Rusticity is attributed to the farmer.
The isolated condition of himself and
family is naturally productive of what
those in more thickly settled communi
ties, where there is a e renter vnrlntv nf
occupations are pleased to call rusticity.
As a means of education and to carry
out the essential instinct of association
that is inherent in all. I would, if I
could have my way introduce and sedu
lously cultivate village farming; that is
would nave farmers congregate in
sn'j communities where their families
couitrhave the benefit of the association
of others, and where that helpfulness es
sential to successful life and the culti
vation of the mental and moral facul
ties could be had and the daily occupa.
tion of the farmer could be conducted
with as much, if not greater, financial
success than it is now.
This would do away with rusticity.
And yet it is altogether an error to sup
pose that there is natural superiority of
those who follow one occupation to those
who follow another.
To improve in this world is the chief
desire of man, and as we advance we be
come helpful to ourselves and to those
around us, and no reason exists why the
farmer may not become as completely
educated in all the 'branches of higher
knowledge as those who are devoted to "
If I were to mention a grave fault
