A(ainat Organized Monopoly and
Hypocriey-Upward Trend of V ley
and Downward Trend of Price.
Time for Action.
The skirmish liue In passed. The bat
tle la on in every section of our coun
try. Organized hypocrisy, falsehood
by rail and by telegraph, great blanket
sheets, smoking and steaming with
falsehood and misrepresentation, mill
ions of tons of trash in every form flood
the country to enable New York and
London to continue to rob and plunder
the people of the United States. In any
other country and in any other age re
sistance to the cunning of Shyloek. aud
the power of money to corrupt and en
slave the people, would be impossible.
It 1b not so with the American peo
ple. There is time enough before the
decisive battle for Justice, liberty and
equality against the machinations of
the most unscrupulous, grasping, hypo
critical and avaricious foe that ever
cursed mankind is finally settled In the
campaign of HXK), to educate the peo
ple and secure a victory over the ene
mies of the human race. Wake up,
arouse your neighbor, point out the dan
ger, induce bim to procure, read and
teach the truth-.' Nine-tenths of all the
people of the United Stales, yea. nine-teen-twentieths,
have a common inter
est to overthrow the powers of dark
ness that are impoverishing the great
republic. Not more than one per cent
of the people are really interested In
and receiving benefits from falling
prices, wrecking fortunes, stagnation of
business, bankruptcy and ruin.
Shall one per cent who are interested
1n devouring the substance of the peo
ple of the United Slates, subverting our
Institutions and converting the great
republic into a despotism, control a ma
jority of the American people and make
lliem slaves? The one er cent and all
the power of money and corrupt ion
would be as harmless as a gentle breeze
!f the American people would wake up.
It is only when they sleep that they can
be enslaved. If they will remember
that "eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty," and each man Join without
delay the great army of reform and en
list his neigliltors to unite with the mill
ions who are striking for liberty, the
cold hearted, wicked Shyloeks who are
sucking the blood of the nation will
shrink before the omnipotent power of
an outraged people like cowardly curs.
And every true American will not only
rejoice, but will be surprised at the
shallow boast and blustering sham of
the conspirators who rob and plunder
the great nation only while its people
sleep. Silver knight-Watchman.
New Director of the Mint.
The Washing-ton, in announcing
the fact that Mr. Uoljorts was sworn
;n as Director of the Mint ou the 14th
of February, co iitnents at consbler
erable length u;hs!) his great achieve
ments as a political writer In the last
campaign, and winds up thus:
"Mr. Roberts lias very keen percep
tions In the matter of currency, and his
.niimacy with national finance, gained
during a long and careful course of
study, will enable him to grasp the
duties of his office without trouble."
The duties of the office of the Director
of the Mint are simple and specific. lie
Is to direct the operation of coining
money. He is not a national professor
of political economy. The brazen
effrontery of several of the predeces
sors of Mr. Roberts in the office of the
Director of the Mint Is a disgrace to
the Treasury Department. The Idea
that a subordinate in the Treasury De
partment should set himself up to teach
finance to Congress and the country at
large and assume an air of wisdom and
Importance which would be Just as be
om1ng In the colored porter that acts
as usher for the Secretary of the Treas
ury a.s for the man who Is entrusted
with overseeing the mechanical em
ployment of melting and refining bul
lion and coining It Into money. We
hope that Mr. Roberts will hare the
decency to attend to his own business
and nt assume to lie the gTand mogul
of the finances of the world. Silver

personal expense were $100,000 a to
tal of $600,000 to get an oflice worth (?)

ever poured so much corruption into
tbe life of his nation as that. The la

to elevate such men. They alone make
It possible In this country for such men
to hold office and pollute tbe nation.

An Object L,mho,i.
On the Fourth of July, 1S7?, two
nelghlior farmers John Doe and Rich
ard Roe disputed aliout the probable
trend of prh es in the future, and they
agreed upon a test as follows: That on
the tirst day of January, 174, they
would each measure out from his bin a
hundred bushels of wheat. Mr. Doe
would sell his at the average price of
wheat for the year l7o, put the money
away and let it lie untouched until the
la-st day of December, lXlo. Mr. Roe
would keep his wheat one year and ex
change It for a like quantity and qual
ity of new wheat, and repeat the opera
tion every year, so as to have a bun
dred bushels of good wheat on hand all
the time until December HI. IMC. The
object was to ascertain how much
would be lost or gained ou the value
of one hundred dollars and on one hun
dred bushels of wheat in tbe next
twenty-one years the time it takes to
grow a man.
When the trial began, Jan. 1, 1S74.
Mr. Doe sold his wheat, as agreed, at
the average price for the year 1S73,
which was 115.1 cents a bushel, receiv
ing for the lot ?1 15.10. Mr. Roe started
out with his one hundred bushels, ex
changing It from year to year, aa
On the last day of the year 1Wi5 Mr.
Roe had his ?1 15.10, and' Mr. Roe had
his one hundred bushels of wheat. On
comparing the values of the two ar
ticles at the beginning and the ending
of the period of twenty-one years the
following wa made:
174. January 1
100 bushels wheat, worth $115.10
100 dollars, worth.. W.05 bus. wheat.
1S!5, December 31
100 bushels wheat, worth $50.90
100 dollars, worth. .I!t0.4! bus. wheat.
Doe's money bad gained in value In
twenty-one years as much as would
buy 10!' j bushels of wheat more than it
paid for when the test was Iw-gun.
Roe's wheat lost In value more than
one-half, for while it was worth $115.10
In the beginning, It was worth only
$50.!0 at the end of the test.
Now let us suppose that Mr. Doe, in
stead of letting his money lie Idle, bad
put It out and kept It out a.s the money
lenders do, at say S per cent, a year
compounded annually. At the. end of
the twenty-oue-year period his one hun
dred dollars would have been swollen
to $5or..2S. which would have paid for
jsH.'-i bushels of wheat. If the Inter
est rate had been 10 per cent, a year,
the amount in the twenty-one years
would have been $710, and that would
bave paid for 1.454 bushels of wheat

l.::;.s 'he fate of the day imperiled, that
Nicholas W. Day, Colonel of the One

in front of the whole line and rallied

About fifteen years ago I visited

snge of mountains vialble from our
xlat of vantage, from tbe Qreat

ed an Interesting subject of conversa
tion I-1 ween them, with much good
humored badinage and friendly Inter
cUauge of views. Mr. Thomas Hughes,
the author of "Tom Brown," who had

Ibtere-t to the conversation between

"Why. this Is extraordinary most ex

that these men, standing In full view of
the field where, only a few years ago,
they- were trying to slay each other,
should be discussing the incidents of
that battle calmly, kindly I might al
most say In a brotherly spirit with
no trace of bitterness or 111 feeling.
Now. I doubt if we In England could
discuss the wars of the roses, or the
Croinwelllan wars, with such in entire
freedom from antagonism."
Could Mr. Hughes have witnessed, a
few years later, the funeral cortege of
the great general who ha. I hurleo the
successful columns against the Scmb

Ridge, and who had brought final de
feat to tbe Southern arms In Virgin! 1.
his astonishment would have been
greater, and his pride In the "kin be

seeing that there were no more sincere
mourners than the Southern generals

Saved Twentj-two Men.
After rescuing twenty-two wounded
Union soldiers at Glasgow, Mo., In Se
tember. 1S;1, Mrs. Dellna Roberts, of
St. Louis, Is to be presented with a
medal of honor by Congress. Mrs. Rob
erts belonged to a family which distin
guished itself by patriotism during the
war. Her four brothers fought for tbe
I'nlon, and three of them died from
Injuries received on the battlefield. Her
father gave nearly all he owned to the
St. Iaiu's army hospitals for the relief
of wounded soldiers. In these Institu
tions, as well ai in the prisons, to all of
which she had passes, Mrs. Roberta
continued her labor of soff -sacrifice un
til the cud of the war. She denied her
self society and homo, aud left lucom
pleie the collegiate education which
had lxeu discontinued when the war
broke out.

Des Moim at St. Louis, en route to
Fort Doneisou. to bring back her broth
er, Charles Reader, who had been
wounded In the battle of Shiloh. Five
minutes before lie boat pulled out a
courier rode furiously down the levee
Hnd announced that the destination of
the Des Moines had been changed. It
was to go up the Mississippi River,
with several other boats, aud take a
regiment of soldiers to re-enforce Col.
Mulligan, at Glasgow, Mo. The lioata
reach el Glasgow at 10::',U p. m. Most
of the so'tiier disembarked, leaving
only one company ou board each boat
for guard. While In the act of landing,
aud before they could be drawn up In
position, the troops were attacked by
the Confederates. The onset was irre
sistible, scattering death HgU and left.
The Union soldiers were driven back
to the banks of the river. Many had
been killed and many more were
wounded. The attack had struck ter
ror to tbe hearts of the women on
board the boats, and a numln-r of tbem
swooned away. Miss Reader was not
of the numlx-r. Putting her right una
around a wounded soldier, she support
ed him and led hhu up tbe plank Into
tiis cabin of the boat. Although bullets
were tlylng thick and fast and those
on board remonstrated with her, she
made twenty-two such trips to the riv
er's shore, each time bringing back a
wounded man. After the boat had cut
loose from her moorings there were
forty-five wounded meu gathered on
the guard of the ladle' cabin. Mlas
Reader aaolsted the surgeon and In
duced tLe terror-birlcken women to
tear up everything they could find to
make bandages for the wounds of tbe
sufferers. Al! that night she stayed un
and attended to their wants. On that
memorable voyage the supplies of tbe
officer ran short and rations w ere cut
down. The young rescuer and nurse
had scarcely enough on which to aub
siwt, yet she divided her single meal
with others. On the morning after the
battle CoL Wheatley presented the
brave girl with a fine white horse, and
the soldiers gave three cheers for the
heroine of the battle.

One of the most successful profession

Grindrod, a full blooded Wyandotte In

the leading families in the city. She

and ls'.il she volunteered her services
as a nurse ami so successful was she
that, acting upon the advice of the phy

of non-success spurred her on.
Munuicinu Help.
The best rule for managing help, In
(he opinion of a writer in the Philadel
phia Ledger, Is a two fold one, simple
in Idea, complex enough, but still pos- j
-iblc lu practice, 'leach your maids:
self respect and keep your own. On
jour own side uu even tcmixr, a plea
i 1 1 1 but lirm oversight of necessary
natters, a systematic plan of bouse
i eplug-all these keep up the mistress
elf-respect In dealing with her house
hold staff. As soon as you feel that
you have been careless, or that you
have lost your temper In a trying mo-
inent, you realize that u false position;
exists, that endangers your self-respect- :
lug relation with your maid. Just as
she feels when her room Is wretched,
her tools out of order, her hours of
work Irregular ami her training neg
lected, that her standard Is confused
and degraded. The Ideal mistress Is
always self-respecllng, and, having pro
vided the essentials of self respecting
service, may reasonably expect the
Ideal maid lo live up fo the opiiortuuity.
KvenlnK Toilet Skirts.
The newest skirts on evening toilets
are very light anil supple, being merely
silk lined and not at all stiffened with
Interlining. The majority of the mod
els lately made in this city or received
from abroad, are mounted on an under
skirt of silk or satin, each skirt made
separately, but Joined to one waist
band. The underskirt la made slightly
narrower than the dress skirt proper.
The dart seams on some of the new
prlncesse dresses extend to the very
edge of the skirt hem, and these are
often hidden their entire length by a
Hue of gimp, a design In braldwork or
a machine-stitched band, decorated
with tiny tailor buttons.

Don't Worry.
Don't worry about something that
you think may hapis-n to-morrow, bo
cause you may die to-night and to-morrow
will find you beyond the reacb of
worry. Don't worry nlsiut a th'ng that
happened yesterday, because csu.-rdy.
is a hundred years a way. It you don't
believe, Just try to reach after it and.
bring It back. Don't worry about any
thing that is happening to-day, be
cause to-day w ill last only about fifteen
or twenty mlu'es. Don't worry about
things you can't help, because worry
only makes tbein worse. Don't worry
about things you can help, because then
there's no need to worry. Don't worry
at all. If jou want to lie penitent now
and then H won't hurt you a bit. It will
do you good. Rut worry, worry, worry,
fret, fret, fret why, there's neither
sorry, penitence strength, penance, re
formation, hope nor resolution In It.
It's merely worry.

Take your old muff, and if It Is out of

Over this sew two thicknesses of stiff
crinoline, then several thicknesses of
other stiffening. Finally, when firm,
tack your wool wadding around all.
When you have brought your muff to
the right size slip the fur covering over
nil. Draw tbe muff box out and care
fully fasten the lining In place. When
completed sew your head upon one side
of the muff and tuck the tail In one end.
