Possess Your Souls. In Patience.
There are doubtless Eomo indepen
dents who feel disappointed and sore
over tho defeat of their preferred can
didates. It is very natural that they
should. I believe nearly every ono of
these will fall into line, and faithfully
support tho ticket if nothing is done to
drive them away from the party.
There is a disposition on tho part of
some other independents to be rash and
hasty in d.aling with their
dissatisfied brethren. To all
such, I want to offer a word of good
Tho thing for you to do is not to de
nounce such men as traitors, nor to an
grily abuse them. Go to them and en
deavor b7 reason and kindness to show
them the true course for them to
pursue. Try to show them their error.
Be not hasty to impute bad motives to
such persons. Let ' charity for all,
and malice toward none," be your mot
to. Thus, and thus only can the ranks
be speedily solidilied for the contest.

IMPORTANCE OF MONEY.
Condition of a Country Dependent
Upon Its Circulation.
The civilization of a nation is largely
if not entirely dependent upon its
money, for upon its abundance or
scarcity depends the social, moral and
intellectual status of its people. Allison
says : "The fall of the Roman empire so
long ascribed in ignorance, to slavery,
heathenism and moral corruption, was
in reality brought about by a decline in
the cold an'l silver mines of Spain and
Greece." The United States monetary
! commission of 1877, page 50, says:
j "Money is the great instrument of assoc-
. iation, the very hber of social organism,
the vitalizing force of industry, the
the protoplasm of civilization, and as
essential to its existence as oxygen is to
animal life. Without money civiliza
tion could not have had a beginning
and with a diminishing supply it must
languish, and unless relieved finally
With this view of a circulating
medium before us its importance must
at once be recognized. Blood is to the
animal life what money is to the body
politic, and an abundant healthful sup
ply is as necessary to the life of the one
as the other. An abundant supply, how
ever, is not more necessary
It Is a People's Party.
Pier-headed Republican editors are
Irvine: to make capital out of the fact 1 tho brain tho body sickens and unless
than freedom of circulation. With a
congestion of blood in the lungs, or on
that all tho candidates on tho People's
party ticket are not farmers. They
have been tolling business and pro
fessional men heretofore that the Peo
ple's party was a farmers' party and
that other classes of American citi
zens could oxpect no recognition from
relieved dies. With the money con
gested in the United States treasury or
the bank vaults of Wall street the
country languishes, business is depress
ed, enterprise ceases, and unless relief
comes the nation must perish. An
abundant supply of money hoarded in
treasuries or bank vaults, bears the same
it. They have endeavored to create relation to the body politic as the blood
class prejudice against it in this way.
Now that the party has demonstrated
tho absolute falsehood of their own
claims by recognition of other classes,
they next seek to oxcite prejudice in
tho minds of the farmers on this ac
count. They are so exceedingly busy
in their bloody-shirt campaign, and in
their frantic efforts to excite preju
dico among tho people, that they
have no time to dovote to tho issues
involved in the party platforms. Verily
tho shattered remnant of tho grand old
party is in a hard row of stumps.
An Example, Truly.
As the Argentine smash-up is often
brought forward as a horrible exam
ple" to the People's party it is well to
rehearse the facts occasionally. The
Topeka Advocate does it thus tersely:
"Never were the people of a corrupt
government victimized by a more
graceless set of sharks than were the
people of the Argentine Republic.
European capitalists entered into
compacts with the government of
ficials, and through the various bank
ing systems established for the pur
pose, the most gigantic and systemat
ic robberies were perpetrated in the
name of the law and by authority of
the government. The speculation
preceded the issue of the money and
was engaged for the purpose of effect-
I corpse. To re-establish circulation in
' cither case would be to restore life. To
restore the physical life is beyond human
law, but the body politic may bo re
suscitated by wholesome laws within
the scope of man's legislation.
To strike a man a blow that fells him
to the earth, stops the circulation of
blood and kills him, is called murder and
in the category of crime stands at the
head. But to smite a nation with a law
that stops the circulation of, or destroys
its money, is a crime for which language
has failed to find a name, and beside
which all other crimes sink into insig
nilicancc. Mrs. S. E. V. Emeiiy.
Eye, Ear, Nose and Threat Disease
Are very common in this climate. The
general all around doctor, is not pre
pared lo treat these cases. If he is in
terested in his patients, as he should be,
he would adviso them to consult a
specialist in this line of work. Among
those who trct all forms of catarrhal
diseases of the eyes, ears, ncso and
throat, none r.re more successful than

A Sure Crop.
Rye is a sure crop in both dry and
wot seasons. The farmers of southern
Nebraska will verify this statement.
Considering the price of rye and the
certainty of tho crop, it is the most
valuable and desirable to raise.
In the vicinity of tho paper mills in
Illinois rye is planted very extensively
and the straw sold to the mills. The
Lincoln paper mills will use live thou
sand tons of straw during the next year.
Rye straw averages one ton per acre as
against one half ten of oat "straw. To
encourage the raising of rye the Paper
Mill company will furnish seed to re
sponsive parties, and invito the farm
ers to cnll and make inquiry, at their
office, 736 O street, Lincoln, Neb.

Thirty years ago Senator Sherman,
of Ohio, was nominated for congress.
He was so poor that he had to mort
gage his home to get funds to carry
on his campaign. At fo.OOO a year,
his salary for thirty years would
amount to only $150,000; but his
check is good for several millions any
where. Now it takes a good deal of
economy to raise, educate, feed and
clothe a family for thirty years on
$150, 000 and save several million dol
lars out of it. Honest John" says,
You can't legislate money into a
man's pocket". Sherman is not the
only poor fellow who has become rich
in this way. This is the reason legis
lation is all against the masses. Pro

Fighting for Homes and Bread.
8t. Louis Post-Dispatch, Dem.
It is useless to attempt to strike s
balance of wrong between the Carncgit
Steel Co. and the workingmen at Home
stead. The situation is all wrong be
cause it represents an appeal to vio
lence to settle differences which shoul
be adiustcd bv peaceable and lega
methods. For the workingmen then
are extenuating circumstances whicl
cannot be ureed in behalf of thi
Carnegie managers. The passional
outbreak of these men arises from i
deeo feeling of resentment for wha
they regard as a great wrong. The
feel themselves to be fighting for thei,
homes and bread for themselves am
their famalies. They were threatenet
bv an alien and mercenary force paid ti
subdue them with the use of Winches
ters for a rich and powerful corporation
They represented, in a manner, povert;
and helplessness resisting the tyrann;
of wealth and power.
