THS studied nonchalance of the
Tillage telegraph operator as be
nuntered up the main street of
ray Willow from the depot betrayed
eense of importance with which
fee wai inwardly welling. Thin pe
asllarlty waa quickly noted by the Ut
ile croup of "prominent citizens' gath
ered about the broad doorway of the
livery stable to discuss the coming cau
ses and enjoy the coolness which dis
tilled from the freshly sprinkled floor.

"Too can't make us believe you've got
ews concealed about you Just by put
Ma' on airs. I've about concluded there
ain't an war outside the newspapers.
They do say Its really begun, but I've
yet to see any proofs of it.
"Well, you Just wait about an hour
an' you'll believe It easy enough," re-
filed the operator.
A half-dozen tilted chairs suddenly
sought the level of the floor, and as
saany voices inquired:
"What's up?" and "Come; can't y
give us the news?"
"All I ve got to say is that you'd
better be down to th' station about
4:38 -if you want to see a sight that
means business." And with this the
operator pursued bis way up the
irowsy street to the postofflee, there
to repeat his mission of mysticism.
On his way back to the depot he was
again waylaid and compelled to con
fess that s special train loaded with
United States "regulars" was coming
from the West Most of the men hur
ried home to carry the news to their
families. But "Hokey" Crane was
aot of this number. Instead be sought
(be musty seclusion of his "court
room, and there began the prepara
tion of the impromptu speech which
fee felt sure be would be called upon
to deliver on behalf of the patriotic
sttizeus of Gray Willow.
la forty mloutes the depot platform
was packed with girls in white, their
cheeks flushed with the excitement of
anticipation; with sober-faced women,
awkwardly expectant men and hilar

went up from this waiting throng as

to to the station was the first intimation
of the actual presence of war that
reached the ears of the orator s wife,
who straightened up from the devo
tional attitude which she had taken be
side her pansy bed, where she was
weeding. The shouting was faint but
It had an ominous, forbidding sound.
She could not clearly Identify it as she
pushed back her pink-checked sun bon
aet and listened. Then came the In
sistent clanging of the locomotive bell,
followed by the puffing of the engine
as it pulled out Intuitively the
thought of war came to ber mind, and
she was not surprised, as the train
came Into view, to see that the plat-
. forms and windows were crowded
with young men In slouch hats, blue
uniforms and legglns. The four young
i Cranes occupied positions of perilous
waalige on the top stringer of the back

sirs. Crane was generally referred to
by her neighbors as "such a timid little
thing." It was only under stress of
greatest conviction that she was ever
able to muster sufficient courage to
speak In revival meetings. She was
shy and gentle, and was generally
class?d in the "cllnging-vine" category
of wives. Although she was still a
young uotnan she had put on the
badge of meek feminine maturity a
small purple bonnet with broad strings
and purple flowers. It was the out
ward token that she recognized the
shortness of human life and was await
ing the Master's call In s proper spirit
of faith and resignation. The frivolity
of hats bad been put behind ber, as be
came the mother of four children.
The remainder of that afternoon she
spent in her bedroom, the door tightly
locked. When she came out there were
dark circles under ber eyes and her lips
were unnaturally white. Her husband
did not come home to supper, and the
children were allowed to eat bread and
milk from the kitchen table without
pausing to wash their faces. Shortly
after dusk tbey were marching toward
the hall with the afternoon's accumu
lation of soil still undisturbed on their
plump little faces. They were clad in
their tattered play clothes and their
mtliar YSsfcA alia mnuf 11 nuonml n. . rl-
dress she possessed. In this condition
they took a seat In the war meeting.
Just as the husband and father began
his eloquent plea for volunteers. She
heard the young men in front of her
say: "Of course we're goin" to elect
Hokey captain of the company. That
goes without sayin'."
After the orator had poured forth a
stream of martial eloquence for thirty
minutes he raised his hand Impressivc-
ly and exclaimed:
"But my friends, talk is cheap.
Deeds are the things that pcak. I
have asked but little at the hands of
my fellow citizens, but to-night I crave
one privilegp and that is that I may
be the first man In Gray Willow to put
my came on the enlistment roll of the
company which shall go forth from
this village to fight for that glorious
banner." By previous arrangement
the village band struck Into the mcas
ure of the "Star-Spangled Banner."
while the audience yelled and stamped.
It was the proudest moment in Hokpy
Crane's life.
He signed the roll during the playing
of the national hymn, and then called
upon all who were willing to lay their
lives on the altar of their country to
come forward.
The audience the largest Gray Wil
low had ever seen gasped as the mild,
timid wife of the patriot orator arose
and walked forward to the enlistment
table, ber unwashed quartet of chil
dren following. After writing her
name she turned to the audience and,
In a voice louder than she had ever
been able to command In prayer meet
Ing, defiantly exclaimed:
"I'd rather do It than stay at borne
and take In washing. I want to lead
a company of Gray Willow women
who depend upon their husbands for
support who haven't paid for their
homes and can leave behind a family
of small children for the unmarried
young men to care for."
What more she would have said had
not ber pastor hastened to her side and
led ber gently sway can only be
guessed. Not a family man In Oray
Willow has offered bis services to his
country since Hokey Crane began the
formation of a company. In the ver
nacular of the little group at the livery
stable, that prominent citizen has ever
since "been lookln' for sn able-bodied

During the bombardment of Ban
Juan the monitor Terror lay for half
an hour within 1,000 yards of the shore,
with the shells of a dozen or more
Kwnfob guns whirring about her,
bursting overhead, and sending great
geysers spurting In the air all around
her. All Uie other vessels of tt" squad
ron had moved out to sea, and the little
Ironclad was alone banging away at
the batteries, which bad concentrated
their fire on her. A shell striking the
vessel's open superstructure deck,
where the men were at work at the
smaller guns, would have caused ha
voc, hile all this confusion of battle
raged a sailor spied a harmonica lying
on the deck close to one of the turret.
The concuAKlon of the guns bad tum
bled it from rU hiding place is the
superstructure. The sailor watched bU
chance, secured the musical Instru
ment and went dancing to the upper
deck playing a lively Jig.
"That's Ihe kind of stuff our men are
made of," said one of the Terror's of
ficers the other day, as he related the
Incident "As I stood there figuring
that the shells were coming a little
closer all the while, thinking It was
about time for one to strike us, and
wondering Just what It would do when
It did, that fellow came bowling by me
blowing his mouth-organ as coolly aa
though be were here In the harbor.
Shells didn't bother him."
But a little while In-fore this tar of
the Terror accompanied the music of
the Spanish shells with his harmonica
the Detroit lay In the mouth of the har
bor, right under Morro, defying Its
guns and pouring shot after shot
against the fort A shell struck the
water about Mo yards abaft the ship.
A few minutes later a second shot fr-m
the same gun fell a Utile closer; a third
was still nearer, and the fourth nar
rowly mlsned striking the mark.
The officer In charge of the six-inch
gun, uh he watched the shot creeping
nearor and nearer, coolly remarked: "I
tell you, Iwys. that's good shooting. Do
you see bow that fellow up there is get
ting elirter and doner to ns? If he
kei up his work he'll hit us. It's
certalniy good shooting."
But the Spaniard failed to keep up
his good work.
From ail accounts the sailors did not
minu opanisn sueils a bit. They go
Into the battle heart and soul. They
fight at their guns as though the enemy
were at arm's length, and the struggle
was a ix-rsonal one.
"Give It to the Spaniards! Thafs a
good 'un! Another In the same place'll
maie 'em sick!" That Is the way they
talk In the thick of the fray.

The story told is that a Duten

some French marines or penitentiary

The Controllinc Condition.
There is no natural reason why the
people of the I'nited States should not
enjoy a practically unbounded pros
perity. Our natural resources are such
that If utilised, our advantages over
all other commercial nations would In
a short time give us a commanding po
sition, and make us the creditor nation
of the world.
Within our borders are fotind ex
hatistlees stores of Iron, coal and petro
leum. We produce aonuaJly more gold
and silver than any other country. Our
wheat fields are co-cxtenslve with the
nation's toundaries, and we possess the
ouly great corn belt on the globe. In
the production of cotton nature has giv
en us a monopoly, furnishing as we do
7S per cent of the world's product We
have vast areas of the best grazing
lands, and our forests will produce un
excelled timber for many years to
come. Our climate is both varied and
salubrious and our people are educated,
industrious and frugal Our political
Institutions are the freest and the
purest on earth, and, from a moral
point of view, our people will not suffer
by comparison with any other of either
aucient or tuodtrn times.
All that have been enumerated axe
necessary conditions of progress and
prosperity, and would seem to comprise
all the essentials to wealth, greatness
and power, aud to irresistibly tend to
make the Unite Slates the exemplar of
ail that good men could wish for.
But notwithstanding all that nature
has placed to our credit we are far
from the realization of our great possi
bilities and in common with less fa
vored lands, there are In our midst
hundreds of thousands who are the
victims of remorseless aud grinding
poverty and the alms house and thu
prison are still numbered among our

sources are a constant Invitation to two
hundred millions of people to come and
abide In plenty. In an age when Inven
tion Is going forward with leaps and
unds. multiplying the means of pro-
ductlon, the change that is rendering
the people homeless is uot working out
that which in our imaginative hours we
picture as "manifest destiny." These
changes cannot fail to cause the
thoughtful to shudder at the portent
reitner can parental love view with in
difference changes that forlxxle evil to
their offspring. No attachment to a po
litical organization, If known to foster
such a change, Is sufficiently strong to
command the allegiance of freemen. If,
as a nation, we possess advantages
over au others In the bounties of na

sources far exceed the needs of more
than double our present population.
uai is tne reason that poerty and
want are common lu our midst and
bankruptcy and suicide periodically
holds high carnival in our laid? What
Is the condition that militates against
us? And what Is the controlling condi
tion of prosperity or adversity?
Tho answer is that the one condition.
In the absence of which there can be no
general prosperity, 1s stable or slightly
advancing prices. Falling prices make
enterprise tbe unerring path to bank
ruptcy. Failing prices confiscate tbe
property of debtors. Falling prices
d-lve labor Into Idleness, and force It to
siarve. Falling prices make the weak
weaker and tbe strong stronger In the
competitive struggle. Falling prices
rob all other members of society to
bestow unjustly uko tbe creditor class.
With falling prices the debts of the
world can never be repaid, snd If this
condition be continued long the equities
of private debtors disappear snd they
sre reduced to tbe ranks of the non
propertied classes, while those free of
d-'bt will be Impoverished by the bur
dens of taxation. Falling prices If con
tinued a few generations would cause a
return of conditions similar to those of
the middle ages.
We use the term "falling prices" to
mean that the general price level Is
falling. The general price level cannot
fall unless money In comparison with
Its uses Is becoming comparatively
scarce, because money Is the pricing In
strument sod Its units are counted to
indicate prices.
The gold combination, composed of
the world's creditors, profit by falling
prices. All others sre losers. Restore
silver to equal mintage rights with
gold and stop falling prices by provid
ing an sdequste money supply and re
store the conditions of prosperity. Sil

of the postofflce at newspaper rates.
But the publisher of the Advance then
made the campaign edition the next

would cot go through the malls and had
to be sent by express. The package tor
Jackson County waa taken to the ex
press office by our mailing clerk and the
express company demanded I7.&5. As
tbe price received was only $4 It would
hardly pay to pay $7.55 freight and so
the kind of papers that would go
throngh tbe mall were packed, snd
Uncle Sam carried the package for 53
(fifty-three) cents. The minimum rate
for an express package to California Is
75 cents. About twenty-two papers of
that kind would weigh one pound. Now
to send them to twenty-two different
points from Milwaukee to California
would cost $10.50 express, while Uncle
Bam would carry them for one cent
Of course this Is an extreme case, but
no one will deny that If the Govern
ment owned the railroads snd conduct
ed the express business, a package that
now costs 50 cents by express would
be shipped for five cents. Doesn't the
Government carry packages now for
onp and two cents, though it pays exor
bitant rates to private railroad corpora
tions? Then why should business men
who pay 50 cents expresnnge on a pack
age squeal about the one-cent war tax?
Why not siapal alwnt the 45 cents over

place tbe cut glass In a box-wood saw
