The Palatine, chief of the t-evtn hills
of Home, as huvhig been tti- site of
the dwelling of Komulus. and, under
Augustus, the residence of the emper
ors, is beginning to attract almost as
much attention as the Aero;olis at
Athens on the part of archaeologists,
ami as but little of the hill has been
excavated the promise of "ri.ids" Is
much greater. Prof. Baeceli has devot
ed himself since 1WI to that part of
tiie Homan Forum itiimedin'cly under
the Palatine, and, as a result, the quar
ters of the vestal virgins and the Via
Nova have lieen disclosed. Tli church
of St. Maria Liberatrice, which was
built out of the temple of Vesta, pre
vents the complete exeavat'on of the
Forum, and the church is an obstacle
that at present swans insurmountable.
Among other portions of the Palatine
that have been unearthed In recent
years are the Stadio Palatino and a cir
cular cistern connected with the hoi:-e
of Lioca. Eventually It Is hoped luat
the whole of this famous hill, or at
least all that part overlooking the Via
Trinmphalis, will be excavated.
A London statistician has been look
ing up the records and has made a dia
gram showing the annual variation in
the price of wheat since 1041. Tbe
most remarkable fact disclose by his
Investigations la that the price rises
and falls with great regularity every
four years, and he explains that the
phenomenon is due to the fact that
when the market has been gcsd farm
ers have planted an increased quantity,
thus making a larger supply and forc
ing prices down again. The average
price In 1893 was 23 shillings 1 pence a
quarter or 70 cents a bushel, and in
1896 20 shillings 2 jsnice, or ks cents a
bushel. The highest price ever known
for wheat occurred In 1812, when it
sold for 126 shillings pence a nuarter,
or alsut $3.85 a bushel. The lowest
price was in 1743, when It fell to 22
shillings 1 pence, or 00 cents a bushel,
although it should le remembered that
the value of money was very much
greater In those days than now. Wara
In any part of the earth have Invariably
Increased the price of wheat. The
most rapid advance ever noted was in
17!, when the career of Napoleon waa
at Its height. Wheat went from $2 to
$.1.50 a bushel in a few months.
There have tsen a number of rough
attacks by women on the New Woman
In the magazines lately. Mrs. Buckler,
who took high honors at Cambridge,
declares in the North American Re
view that woman's achievements In
literature and art have in two thousand
years produced little if anything worth
mentioning. She has never written a
great history or a great drama, nor
achieved distinction m discovery, in
vention, painting, sculpture, or archi
tecture. At any rate, her achievements
have fallen far short of man's. Her
success in collegiate fields Is eiHed
to the same criticism. I'nder the title
"The Unquiet Sex," in Bcrihnef Mag
azlne. Helen Wattersoo Moody srotesW
against women being thus shut off by1
themselves. They exhaust each other
merely by Mn together; lavish ex
travagant friendship on one another, or
Indulge in excessive admiration for
some teacher. When they graduate,
thcli first idea, if they undertake
career, is io prove that tbey can do s
man's work. They neglect those facul-
th-s and capacities for which women
have constant need, unless they are to
Im educated or co-educated out of lite
fashion of marrying and housekeeping,
g for herself, she says she would glad s
ly exchange her birthright of Oreek
and Latin for tbe ability to make one
good mesa of pottage. Their healthi
she declares, Is also neglected in col-:
lege. After graduation a few drift Into
teaching, fewer still Into medicine, lltJ
erature, and law; but In these pursuits'
woman has not proved herself remark
able. Tbe next volley, although nred
anonymously, baa the sanction of Ml sal
Frances Wlllard, who sends It to the4
Critic. According to this dissenter the1
main quality of women's college work.
Is an Imitation of man's. Women's ed
ucation Is a "fad," to which their health
and vigor are sacrificed, instead of un
dertaking to develop their own capaci
ties and ambitions, all stress Is given
to recreate tbelr natures and ca
pacities. The teachers are unmarried
women who sacrifice almost every
thing to books, to the neglect of social
training and of refining influences.
There Is a failure to uphold and foster
the Ideal of wifehood and womanhood.
Subjects particularly gapU-d to wo
men as mothers, wives, ana me guar
dians of the homes, like sanitation, do
mestic economy, social - science, the
science of teaching, are scarce:? rccog
ntsed, and the whole scheme Is worked
a the old lines tbst men laid down in
mediaeval times. It is somewhat re
markable that witbta a few week
there should have hem tare of these
attacks on women's higher education

Would Nominate a Presidential Can

llMH) Call Outlines tbe Leading Is
sues for Which Populists Contend,
To Meet in tt. Louis.
Tbe executive coniiuiiiee of the na
tional organization committee ap
,.in!...i ,v the Nashville conference
held a meeting at the LaClede Hotel, j
St. Louis, and practically issued a call i
for a national convention In April, j
lsjis, at which time a Presidential i
candidate will probably be nominated
for the campaign of 1WU.
This committee meeting was enthu-t-iastlc
and thoroughly Popuiistic in
every sense of the word. There were
no contentions nor se-iiMi bickerings
and after comparing notes from all
parts of tbe country, fully realizing
that the general dissatisfaction caused
by lat year's fusion would result In
absolute destruction of the party un
lcs measures were taken to rally the
scattered forces, they issued a call
which should call together every pa
triotic worker iu the cause.
The general complaint was that of
dissatisfaction and lack of educational
work growing out of the lat cam
paign. Fusion, ail admitted, waa the
great ottstacle to advancement, aud it
is found to be atsoIutely imitoosible to
convince aity great numbers that there
will isj no further dealings with the
politicians. It waa proposed that
Chairman Butler and the national
committee be invited to join the com
mittee la a call for a national conven
tion at once to nominate candidates

ed io 1 1 raft the plan and when It re
turned iih tbe following report It
was adopted without a dissenting
The Call.

LaClede Hotel, 8t Louis, Mo., for
Jan. IX 1KJ8, and respectfully invite
the national committee of the People's
party to meet with us in conference
on the above date, appealing to their
patriotism and sense of duty to aid us
lu restoring our jtarty organisation to
Its once splendid estate.
Feeling it due to the members of the
People's party to outline the objects
of this call, we submit the following
First The holding of a national

Third-TUat the nomination of Con

The law of the laud is nothing to tbs
money power. The law gives the
treasury an option to redeem green
backs in either silver or gold, but th
wishes of bondholders and moncj
grubbers are paramount to the law.
The endless chain was created by a
disregard of the law. It is the easiest
thing in the world to break the chain.
Simply obey the law.
Secretary Sherman In 1878, when in
the height of his mental lowers, and
In the position of Secretary of the
Treasury, told the finance committee
how to break the endless chain. His
advice was to obey the law.
In discussing the ijueation, Sherman
said: "Our mere right to pay in silver
would dolcr a great many people from
vr rvti nnii n rf nile for riMli'mntlon who
would readily do so If they could gel
tbe lighter and more portable coin in
exchange. Besides, gold coin can be
exported, while silver coin could not
be exported, because Its market value
la lesa than ita coin value."
As the Cincinnati Enquirer very tru
ly says: "There is no repudiation In
that and no 'anarchy.' It Is 'sound
money doctrine' from the great 'sound
money' apostle, John Klierman."
There Is no popular demand for tbs
retirement of the greeulacks. The
people are satisfied with this medium
of exchange. It carries with It no
burden of Interest, and It is Just ss

Feeding the Work Horse."

feed com aud oat! equal parts, either

dlliiteiit. The bran of oats is sufficient
to preveu-. It bccomliiK a iasty mass in
the stomach. If meal Is not mixed
with ground oats or with bran, It
should te Ted with dampened cut hay
or cut sheaf oats With a ration of
corn, oats aud timothy hay or marsh
hay, either bran or oil meal or sprouts
should be added, say six 'pounds vt
bran a day. or if oil men! two iinds a
day, or three to five of proutS.
If fed iu the e;1r. corn may be fed three
times a day, with oats and brnn added
at noon and night, with less corn. A
good day's feed for a l..l-pound horse
Is 14 isjunda of hay, 1" lsiunds of corn
meal, ti pounds of o:its and (i of bran,
in place of bran one may use two
pounds of oil meal. If he feeds vlover
hay he doe not neinl either bran or oU
meal. Corn should never be omitted
from the ration of a horse at nam
