An Cld Soldier for Weaver.
Editor Tut Fa km tits' Alliance:
I am in favor of lien. Weaver of Iowa.
for president and T. V. Powderly for
I can say in behalf of Gen. Weaver,
that ha was a brave soldier: I became
acquainted with him in 1801 when he
led the Second Iowa Infantry to victory
in the gallant charge at Fort Donelsoa
where the heavy timber was thrown
do-s the hill with the limbs all sharp
ened, to binder the piorress, wnn all
the obstacles thrown in tne way.
Gen. Weaver gained and held the
fort, and after the war we li ed in the
same town three years. He was as
zealous in the interests of the people as
he was in putting down the war; he was
in favor ef the greenbacks and a full le
gal tender money which would satisfy
all home demands. This kind
of money would have saved us
millions of interest and placed our na
tion in good circumstances, and there
would have been no 8000 millionaires
to sap the life of the nation. There
would have been no uprising of the peo
ple demanding justice. There would not
have been any need of calling on the
patriotism of all loyal citizens to stand
against combined capital which is the
downfall of all nations.
Mr. Editor, I will state for the in
terenis of the readers of your paper. I
was in the war from the first to last,
and during ttiis my wife paid 00 cents
for muslin and 13.00 for a calico
Whilo wo were striving to sive the
nation, would some of our would be
leaders rise up and tell us why this in
justice to the boys who wore the biuo
and why it is still continued? When we
look around and see a board of three
within a radius of sixty miles all over
the country getting big pay for their
service! to examine the soldiers apply
ing for pensions, wo remember it only
took one to examine thousands for the
service and still Injustice goes on.

The Eye and Ear
Are two most delicate and complicat
ed organs; without the eye we could
not guide our footsteps nor observe
the beauties of nature; without the ear
we could not hear the voices of our
friends nor enjoy the sweet sounds of
music. No one is so helpless as the
blind and more deserving of pitv than
the deaf. Many persons lose sight or
hearing by neglect, which timely aid
might prevent. Among the specialists
who treat these organs nono have been
more successful than Dr. Dennis whose
otllcela is over the First National Bank
Lincoln. Mr. C. M. Marshall who has
been in the employ of the big furniture
dealers, Gruetter & Co. was deaf In one
ear from which was a constant offensive
discharge for twenty-five years. The
Dr. cured it entirely in one month. Mr.

"Songs of Industry," words and music
by Charles S. Howe of Michigan. It is
a choice collection of songs for farmers'
alliance and industrial and labor re

getting up entertainments will find it
valuable as the music Is new and the
words well adapted to the inspiration
so desirable in songs of this character.
