Ik 1S9G the Republican parly prom
ised to promote international bimetal
lism and Mr McKiuley in his letter of
acceptance pledged himself to carry
out that promise If the gold standard
has been a benefit to the United States
why should the Republican party try
10 abaudon it and substitute the double
standard by international agreement
As soon as Mr McKinley was elected
Jie asked Congress for authority to ap
Moint a commission to visit Europe and
secure the aid of the leading commer
cial nations of Europe in abandoning
he gold standard If the gold stand
ard is a blessing why did Mr McKin
iy send a commission to Europe to get
rid of it
A Republican Congress by an almost
unanimous vote appropriated 100000
io pay the expenses of the monetary
-commission If the gold standard is
the standard of civilization why did
The Republican parly spend 100000 in
Iryiujfto get rid of it
The French government expressed a
willingness to restore bimetallism by
international agreement and joined our
commissioners in asking Englands co
operation If the gold standard has
been a blessing to France why is
France willing to abandon its gold
standard and substitute international
Within three years the German
reichstag has adopted a resolution de
claring in favor of international bimet
allism If the gold standard has been
a blessing to Germany why was the
popular branch of the German assem
bly willing to abandon fcheold stand
ard and substitute international bimet
The gold standard has been indorsed
by bankers financiers and chambers J
of commerce but it had never been in
dorsed bj the producers of wealth in
any nation in the world Wall the Re
publicans say that the producers of
wealth do not know what is good for
hem or should only financiers be con
sulted in monetary legislation
The monetary commission remained
in England for three months and the
press dispatches reported that the com
missioners were confident of obtaining
some concession from England On
the 22d day of last September the bank
ers of London joined in unanimous pro
test against bimetallism and the En
glish government has now refused to
make the concession for which our
commissioners asked Does this not
upport our contention that the gold
yfeiidard is advocated by the capital
istic classes of the world
The Republican part- in its plat
form of 1S9G after pledging itself to
international bimetallism declared that
the gold standard mut be maintained
until the leading commercial nations
joined in international bimetallism Is
t well to thus allow the leading com
mercial nations of Europe to dictate
the financial policy of the United
That Vote of Confidence
If the Republican administration an-

cunt election must have proved a se
vere disappointment
Last year McKinley had the magnifi
cent plurality of 2G8574 votes in the
State of New York This year the Em
pire State went Democratic by a plu
xality of 5324S A change of 175000
votes shows what the people of the
State of New York think of the Repub
lican administration New York City
has reversed a plurality of 57000 for
JJcKinley to a Democratic plurality of
JWOfiOO Republican measures are evi
dently not popular in the State of New
York nor are they approved by the
citizens of the greater city of New
However Ohio ought to have proved
loyal to the party which sent her hon
ored son McKinley to Washington
-as President of the United States But
alas for the hopes of the grand old par
ty the Buckeye State has reduced her
Republican majority from 50000 in
1S9G to 20000 in 1S97 and Hanua who
stands as the representative of McKin
ley has an excellent chance of remain
ing at home as a private citizen instead
of re entering the United States Sen
There is no necessity of referring to
Kentucky Virginia or Nebraska It
would be cruel to harrow up the feel
ings of Republicans by calling atten
tion to the disasters which have be
fallen their party in those States Tar
iff reform monetary reform Un
ion Pacific reform Cuban reform
have been weighed in the balance and
found wanting The Republican party
is doomed to inevitable defeat in 1900
Chicago Dispatch
Victory for Silver
One fact has been clearly demon
strated by the elections and that is the I
enlarged growth of silver sentiment
However much the Republican editors
may strive to ignore the conclusion
theie remains no doubt that the dissat
isfaction of the people with gold mono
metallism was at the bottom of Repub
lican defeat Henry Watterson frank
ly admits the victory of bimetallism at
the polls in Kentucky and withdraws
from party leadership In New York
the outcome is found to be practically
the same In Ohio while the Republi
cans have won by a narrow margin
their victory is really a defeat and the
Buckeye State is now in the doubtful
column It is not at all sure that Ban
na will go to the Senate even though
the Legislature may prove to have a
Republican majority on joint ballot A
few dissatisfied Republicans can by
the aid of the Democrats defeat the
aspirations of the boss and elect some
less objectionable Republican As for
Nebraska AY J Bryan says Nebras
ka increases her majority for silver
Returns from other States vindicate
the Chicago platform I rejoice over
the outlook
What Brought It About
That this is a Democratic year nas
become a trite expression but as the
election returns from the eontesUl
States all over the Union show it is a
true one In New York the McKinley
majority of nearly 270000 has been
wiped out In Ohio if Mark Hanna s
Senatorial aspirations have not been
obliterated entirely they certainly
have received such a setback that they
can only be realized through the mag
nanimityor the purchase of his ene
mies in his own party
New York and Ohio were the two im
portant States in this years political
contest The same agencies were at
work in New York State and in Ohio
and to about the same extent as the
returns show They were disgusted
with the bunco game the Republicans
in Congress played on tne dupes who
were caught by their sound money
cry last year the unblushing hypocrisy
and only too transparent impotence of
the McKinley administration in hand
ling the nations affairs and the favor
shown by every official in Washington
to the monopolies and trusts all over
the country
The result shows that the people are
angry and that they will remain angry
for some time to come is all too clear
They put the Republican parly in pow
er because that party made promises
which it had no intention of keeping
It has been found out and unless the
Democracy is unusually stupid between
now and November of next year it will
elect a Congress of its own way of
thinking New York News
Still a Deficit
The Dingley tariff for deficit keeps
right on in its merry work and the re
turns for October leave a neat little
balance of about 10000000 on the
wrong side of the ledger
An analysis of the receipts and ex
penditures of the United States shows
that the total receipts for the month of
October were 24391415 and the ex
penditures 33701512 making the ex
cess of expenditures over receipts for
the month 9310097 and for the four
months of the present fiscal year 3S
009010 The receipts for customs dur
ing October amounted to 9713494 as
compared Avith 11105493 for October
1S9G and the receipts from internal
revenue sources 13014872 a gain of
251710 over October last year
For a measure which was passed
with the avowed purpose of furnish
ing sufficient revenue to meet the ex
penses of the Government the Dingley
tariff is certainly falling far behind
the expectations of its promoters and
unless some unexpected change for
the better takes place the contingency
anticipated by Senator Aldrich will
face the Republican party This con
tingency will be the settled fact of a
deficiency of revenue chargeable to
Republican legislation which will re
sult in the downfall of the party re
Bond Issue in the Near Future
At the present monthly rate of excess
of expenditures over receipts it is evi
dent that the treasury deficit before
the end of the year will be so heavy
that some unusual means will have to
be adopted to meet the requirements
Only one of two ways is open Senator
Alison has pointed out one of them
This is to take from the appropriations
for the river and harbor improvement
and coast defenses a sufficient sum to
balance the deficit It is hardly prob
able that the administration would
care to establish so unpopular a prece
dent The only other recourse is a bond
issue That it will be taken there is
scarcely any room for doubt St Louis
Pharisaical Talk About Tammany
The spasms which some Eastern and
European reformers are attempting to
have over the election of Judge Van
Wyck are due principally to the inno
cence of the holier-than-thou element
in believing all the wild stories about
Tammany As a fact it is simply the
only Democratic organization in the
country that has the skill and disci
pline of the Republican machines And
Piatts gang is a great deal worse mor
ally than Tammany ever was Kansas
City Times
Rebuked by Ohio Voters
The voters of Ohio made a brave er
fort to rebuke Mr McKinleys pitiful
lowering of the dignity that attaches
to the Presidential office in his mad
ness of desire to make a United States
Senator by popular suffrage of the
slush fund syndicate organizer who
made him President They have voiced
ashamed and indignant protest against
Hanunisni the threat of which may
not be wisely disregarded in future
St Louis Republic
Iowas High Opinion of White
In the returns Mr White can reaa
the answer the people of the State
made to the charge that he was an an
archist a dangerous man unfitted
to be intrusted with the execution of
the laws of the State No man not
even Horace Boies ever had a more
magnificent indorsement from the peo
ple of Iowa than Mr White received

Sixty Thousand Persons at Moody and
Sankeys First Revivals
Writing of When Moody and San
key Stirred the Nation in the Ladies
Home Journal Nathaniel P Babcock
thus recalls the first revivals held by
the well known evangelists in New
York City To the Hippodrome was
the cry of the Protestant religious
world of New York during the early
months of the year 187G Twenty one
years ago and yet the strangeness of
those days when over the great me
tropolis hung an atmosphere charged
with the electricity of religious zeal is
fresh in my memory To the Hippo
drome The words were uttered from
the pulpits of scores of churches first
as advice then as a command by min
isters to congregations To the Hippo
drome You heard the phrase in the
street cars in the hotels sometimes up
on the busy avenues On early morn
ing trains steaming in from suburban
points you saw women by hundreds
with luncheons in baskets drawn to
the city not by the spring millinery of
the stores but by that shibboleth which
echoed in myriad Christian hearts To
the Hippodrome
Moody and Sankey aided by a mul
titude of local clergymen and bands
of volunteer Christian workers had
undertaken the task of setting New
York on fire with enthusiasm for the
cause of Christ How great was the
measure of their success may be judged
by the fact that there were days be
tween Feb 7 the beginning of the re
vival and April 19 its close when as
many as sixty thousand persons found
their way into the presence of the
evangelists one meeting following an
other from noon till late in the evening
with almost constantly assembling au
diences of seven or eight thousand at
What was the record of conversions
during those ten weeks of daily relig
ious services Somebody asked this
question of Moody midway in the re
vivals course Record he repeated
Why that is kept only in heaven
Well so for there at least it is im
mutable whereas the walls which
rang -with the glad cries of converted
sinners have long since been razed tc
the ground and not a stone nor brick
nor joist nor girder remains to tell the
story of what went on in that vast
auditorium in the early dawn of our
great centennial year
A Trying Husband
It is possible to carry even ones vir
tues to excess Mrs K lelt this to oe
true in the case of her husbands gen
erosity He was a very studious man
who lived in the clouds much of the
time and was quite lacking in prac
tical common sense A man of this
kind good and true though he may be
is likely to cause his wife more or less
anxiety and annoyance
One fall Mrs K purchased a hand
some cape for herself It was to be her
best wrap that winter and she put it
away in her closet with great care
Some days later she wanted it for a
special occasion but It was not to be
found After searching high and low
for it she went up to her husbands
study and said to him
v Have you seen anything of my ncA
Capecape said Mr K dreamily
Have I seen anything of your cape
Why no I guess not
Are you sure
AYhy yes what should I be doing
with your capo I let me see Wait
a minute It seems to me that I yes
I did give a cape away to a poor Avoman
I met at the door one day She said
she Avanted a wrap of some kind and
I is it possible that I gave her your
new cape I meant to give her your
old one
My old one is in my closet and you
must have giA en away that handsome
neAV one that I had never Avorn Why
cant you keep your Avits about you
It is too bad said the contrite pro
fessor Ill try to be more careful
A feAV days later Mr K was out on
his lawn Avhen a ragged and evil-looking
tramp came doAvn the road and
with the usual tale about having just
come from the hospital begged for the
price of a meal o victuals
Mrs K who Avas sitting by a win
doAv saA her husband give the man
what seemed to be a bill which the
tramp took and departed with such
alacrity that he AAas out of sight be
fore Mrs K could go out and say to
her husband
You didnt give that creature a bill
did you
Why yes I did I didnt have any
thing but a 5 bill and I told him he
might get a good meal out of it and
bring back the change
The tramp must have dined sumptu
ously for not a penny of change ever
came back to Mr K
War Gave the South a Flower
A Southern man tells the Washington
Post that the daisy was never known ic
the South until after the war Now
every part of the South visited by the
Union army is covered by daisies
Sherman brought them to us he said
and the march to the sea can be fol
loAved in the summer time by keeping
where the daisy grows The seed seems
to have been transported in the hay
that was brought along to feed the
horses This is the only explanation
that has ever been made of it New

Some Point9 in Favor of Shredded
Fodder The Best Hog for Bacon
Sell Off the Poor Stock Caring for
the Machinery
Shredded Fodder Best
During the past few years unusual
interest has been taken in shredding
fodder Many haAe hesitated thinking
that the shredded corn Avould not keep
wel in the mow or stack When first
practiced more or less fodder was
shredded in a somewhat damp condi
tion It invariably heated in the mow
became musty and gave unsatisfactory
results The fodder should not be run
through the machine until it is entirely
dry and well cured It would be better
over dry than not dry enough In 1895
at the Indiana experiment station all
of the corn fodder was shredded It
kept Avell in the mow and was free
from mustiness The cattle and sheep
ate it freely and it Avas used well iito
the spring There are several points
in favor of shredded fodder It is more
economical to feed than the uncut corn
It is eaten up cleaner by the stock than
most uct fodder there being less waste
due to the absence of the hard sharp
edged and short butt pieces of stalk
usually found in cut fodder The re
fuse makes better material for bedding
than does Avhole stalks or cut pieces
being finer and softer It handles far
better in the manure pile than does the
entire stalk It does not make the
mouths of cattle sore while that of
coarsely cut fodder oftentimes does
It packs more economically in the mow
than does uncut fodder The feeding
value of shredded and cut fodder is
practically the same Shredding is com
ing into practice and many farmers are
making use of the process
Best Bacon Hog
There is a rivalry between the Tam
worth and the improved Yorkshire as
to which is the better bacon hog The
fact of the TamAvorth being a compara
tively new breed in America gives it
the advantage of novelty Both breeds
are popular with the bacon curers The
Yorkshire makes an excellent cross on
the short bodied sows of any grade
though the Avriter does not advise that
course The farmer endeavoring to
breed up a type of hogs suitable for
bacon should if possible improve with
Yorkshire blood on the maternal line
and instead of obtaining a pure bred
Yorkshire or Tamworth sire should in
every case obtain the dam in prefer
ence to the sire But there is a strong
aArersion in the minds of farmers gen
erally to breeding long sided hogs and
the long snout of the Tamworth is an
almost impassable barrier in the way
of the introduction of this breed into
America Farmers from their famil
iarity with the common scrub hog ridi
cule the idea of breeding 3n animal
Avith so long a snout as the Tamworth
Though Avhen we find the long snout
associated Avith long and deep sides of
the very best bacon we can afford to
look upon it with at least a subdued
hostility The improAred Yorkshire must
not be confounded with the small York
shire The improved Yorkshire is a
modification of the large Yorkshire it
has less of size than the former and
more of smoothness
Selling Off Poor Stock
As Avinter approaches every farmer
should look over his farm stock and
consider Avhat of it Avill pay best for
keeping through until spring If all
that does not come up to the standard is
sold to the butcher or otherwise dis
posed of the money for it and the hay
or grain required for its winter suste
nance will leave the farmer richer in
the spring than if he fed it Dont try
to get high prices for the poor stock
There is less loss in disposing of it than
in keeping it The farmers profit in
these days depend more on the kind of
stock he keeps than on any other fac
Care for the Machinery
Do not leave your costly machinery
out in the field or uncoAered With
proper care the machinery ought to
last you for years but it will not if left
exposed to the Aveather and storms six
or eight months in a year The indus
trious and economical farmer cares for
everything because he is aware that
a continual outlay for new machinery
each year to take the place of that
which has been alloAved to rot in the
field is extravagance
Ashes for Sandy Soils
Sandy soils are always deficient in
potash Even if they had this mineral
they have usually so little vegetable
matter that the potash forms an insolu
ble compound by uniting with the
sand The potash in caustic ashes dis
solves the silicate of potash and also
helps itself until its caustic properties
are lost But old leached ashes are
often quite as beneficial to sandy soils
as are the unleached They always
contain some potash and some phos
phate which the water used for leach
ing would not dissolve But they also
usually contain some ammonia taken
from the air and which makes its pot
ash a nitrate of potash and a very pow
erful fertilizer
Hiving Bees in a Tree
The usual way when a bee tree has
been found is to cutIt down stupefy
the bees Avith smoke as well as may be
and take their honey This of course
destroys all future harvests of sweet
from that tree or swarm Possibly Dan
iei Johnson an old bee hunter of Ded
ham Me has discovered a better way
The bees provided against their tree
being cut down and their stores de
stroyed by selecting a tree which over
hung a deep ravine If the tree were
rat down it would fall into the ravine
smashing the tree and destroying the
honey So he inserted a gas pipe from
a hollow near the ground running it up
the tree until the honey was reached
Then he built a fire at the foot of the
tree So soon as the fire warmed the
honey inside it began to run down
where it was caught in pails It nearly
filled a barrel Mr Johnson thinks he
has a permanent hive of bees on that
tree so long as it does not succumb to
the effects of fire at its roots He
thinks there is enough honey left to
winter the bees and that next year
they will go to work and fill the empty
combs But it is very possible that
heat sufficient to melt honey comb has
killed the bees and that the barrel of
honey this year is the last he will get
from that tree
Japanese Plums
Those who wish to grow plums in
the garden I advise the trying of a set
of Japan plums as there seems to be
good reason to believe that they will
be the plums of the future when the
black knot has wiped the older race
out of existence This pest is hard to
control when the hedgerows are full of
native species of prunes and these
trees serve for its propagation Fruit
growers have considered it hopeless to
be able to fight the fungus and are
planting the Japanese plums in place
of the native kinds In planting it
should be borne in mind that a mucu
greater distance is needed between the
trees than between other plums at
least eighteen feet when mature growth
is reached by the trees The curculio
seems to be quite as troublesome in
these new plums as on the older ones
though we had hoped much from the
thicker skinned fruit But to have
clear skinned plums the curculio must
be fought In early summer when it is
doing its work We lost but few from
the stings but the fruit was disfig

How to Keep the Churn
It is particularly trying during ex 1
tremely hot weather to keep a wooden
churn which is used not more than
twice a week from shrinking some
what about the corners where the
staves which compose the sides are
joined to the bottom Of course the
chum may be left in the cellar but that
means many a wearying tug up and
down on churning days unless the
churning is done there In the latter
case mold is apt to collect upon any
wooden utensil in an ordinary cellar To
keep water in the churn requires con
stant care lest it be forgotten for it
should be changed every day A better
Avay is to hook the churn to the stand
ard bottom side up where a barrel
churn is used and pour Avater around
the inside of the chine covering the out
side of the churn bottom which will be
sufficient to keep the Avood from shrink
ing by reason of becoming too dry

Marketing Turnips
To get the best prices for turnips the
grower must calculate to sell a large
part of his crop from house to house
It is a vegetable that almost every
householder will buy one or two bush
els of and not like the potato which
must be secured in sufficient quantities
to supply the table twice a day through
the winter It is best always to grow
both the Avhite for early use and either
a late yellow turnip or rutabaga for use
in spring If brought to their houses
the turnips can always be sold at about
the price charged by the grocers per
bushel If the difference between the
turnips for early and late use is ex
plained most households will take a
bushel of each It makes extra work
for the farmer to peddle his turnips
but the double price he gets over what
the groAver would pay makes it Avorth
his Avhile It is for the consumers in
terest also to buy turnips fresh from
the field rather than the grocery stock
that for days or perhaps weeks have
been exposed to the air
Improvement in Tomatoes
There has been great improvement m
both the shape and quality of tomatoes
since AAe first kneAV and liked them The
original tomato Avas very rough had
little pulp and was merely a bag of
seeds and water with very thick tough
skin The first improvement was in se
curing sound and smooth tomatoes but
somewhat smaller than the fruit was
originally But for many years we have
had tomatoes full of pulp and having
comparatively few seeds These are
much the best for cooking and canning
as when cooked there is something to
them besides seeds
Quality of Evaporated Fruit
So much is said about the advantage
of fruit evaporating to make a market
for otherwise unsalable fruit that many
may think it makes little difference
what its quality may be The truth is
that only the really good fruit should
be used for the evaporator It may be
and often is unsalable because of blem
ishes which affect its looks but do not
impair quality But to take green
worm eaten fruit and put it through
the evaporator is a mistake Its first
effect is to discourage the consumer
making him think that evaporated fruit
is not so good as he expected Poor
fruit is not worth much for the pigs
but that or other stock is the best mar
ket for it
Late Sown Winter Grain
It is not the size of fall groAvth maue
but its character that decides Avhether
it can stand winter freezing and thaw
ing A late sown small growth if vig
orous will come out all right In fact
for some reasons the small top is best
as it does not evaporate so much Noth
ing can prevent the soil freezing on the
surface lower than the grain roots reach
in their fall growth If there is a great
amount of leaf on winter grain it is
more easily killed to the root than
where the growth is small

Toast on Gas Stoves
One of the foremost disadAantages of
the gasoline or oil stove that has be
come a necessity in the modern house
in warm weather is that bread cannot
be toasted upon it eAenly or nicely and
Ibesides the toast is very apt to be
smoked by it The toaster for these
stoves here shown smooths away theso

Selecting a Lamp
In selecting a lamp i is Avell to choose
one with a shallow reservoir for if the

About the House
When melting glue for use it Is a good
plan to add a little finely powdered
chalk to it This will greatly augment
its strength
Linoleum is found to last better and
to preserve better color if sponged with
a weak solution of beeswax In spirits
of urpentine
1 If milk boils over onto the stove a
i very unpleasant smell is the result
This may be cured by sprinkling a lit
tle common salt on the stove
When flower vases are stained they
should be washed with vinegar mixed
Avith very hot water or ammonia may
be used instead of the vinegar
A frying pan howevei soiled may be
rendered beautifully bright if it be
cleaned with ammonia Make a strong
solution of ammonia and water and let
the pan soak in it for several minutes
Tea coffee and fruit stains when
freshly made can be removed by
stretching the stained article tightly
and pouring boiling water through the
marks until they disappear This plan
Is only successful if tried immediacy
