Every gold standard
dard democrat in
Nebraska who wishes gold standard fire
insurance to prevail and liquidate losses
in Nebraska , instead of a sixteen-to-one-
assessment fire insurance should vote
against House Rent Holcomb.
Every gold standard man who wishes
the administration of justice in accord
ance with the golden rule should vote
for Manoah B. Reese for the supreme
Every gold standard democrat should'
vote against fusionista and fusion in
Nebraska. Any gold democrat who
may incline to vote the bologna-sausage
ticket , made up out of three different
meats , can before refusing , fusing or
being refused , read the masterful speech
of Colonel Bryan , made at Richmond ,
Virginia , in 1800 , in which the octopus
orator says :
"Lwant to warn you who are con
templating deserting from the demo
cratic party at this time , that the man
who , in the face of such an enemy ,
either gops to the rear or is found in
secret conference with the enemy , is a
traitor upon wliom the brand fhall be
placed and HE SHALL NOT COME BACK. "
Colonel Bryan has forbidden the gold
standard democrats of Nebraska voting
for Holcomb or any other free silver
howler. Do not disobey the mandates
of Boss Bryan.
LUNATIC. ized preacher who
runs the organ of
Bryanarchy at Lincoln is now , if he may
be judged by his language , a raving
lunatic. His most menacing mania ,
however , is only brought on instantly ,
at the sight of truth he has vera-phobia.
It never , throws him into convulsions as
long as ho reads only his own writings ,
just as a dog in a desert , never has
spasms of hydrophobia because ho sees
' no water. But when THE CONSEUVA-
TIVE is placed before the unfortunate ,
he has yelling paroxysms , horrible con
tortions. "With vera-phobia the victim
always acts thus in the presence of
TIVE calls the at
tention of farmers to the fact that , with
their corn , wheat , oats , rye and barley ,
their hogs , horses and cattle , farmers
are constantly buying money. The
persons who buy the farm products are
selling money. These money sellers
demand cereals , meats and all other
farm products , of such a high grade of
excellence that they will compel demand
for themselves in all the markets of the
world. These money sellers never ex
change for products that are of a doubt
ful quality. "Why then should the
farmer exchange for money of doubtful
quality ? If the things he sells must be
good enough for all the world why
-m < >
should ho not demand in exchange for
thorn money good enough for all the
world ? Why ask for silver , which
fluctuates in purchasing power with the
ups and downs of silver bullion , when ,
by asking , ho cnn get gold , the bullion
value and mint value of which remains
the same ? Buying money with the
fruits of his field the farmer should de
mand the best money in the world , or its
interchangeable equivalent , gold. He
should have a metallic money which ,
when it has been melted into bullion is
worth as much as it was worth in coin.
Silver in coin is § 1.29 an ounce ; in bul
lion 57 cents an ounce. Gold is worth
as much in nuggets as in coins.

certain elixir in which our forerunners
of that day wore firm believers ; they
adhered to it as religiously as Don

"Take one pint of whiskey ; stir it
well with one spoonful of whiskey ; then
add another pint of whiskey ; beat care
fully with a spoon , and keep pouring in
whiskey. Fill a largo bowl with water
and have the servants put it out of your

The good old days when prominent
citizens went drunk to bed or-fought in
the streets have gone by ; but a certain
broad humor has gone with them , which
could not so well bo spared.
In his fnmou8
M a disou Square
Garden ppeech of 180G , Colonel Bryan ,
economist , orator and prophet , declared :
"Under bimetallism silver bullion
will bo worth as much as silver coin ,
just as gold bullion is now worth as
much as gold coin , and we believe that
a silver dollar will be worth as much as
a gold dollar. "
Chapter ten of Proverbs , 81st verse ,
reads : "The month of the just bringeth
forth wisdom ; but the froward tongue
shall be cut out. " And again in
Proverbs find : "A man's belly shall be
satisfied with the fruit of his mouth ;
and with the increase of his lips shall he
be filled. "
The last text indicates that there were
platform speakers in Biblical times who
coined their conceits into cash.
A new "exclusively literary" paper
called Literary Life has just been started
in New York. It uses the word "elec

the second line of its salutatory , and
becomes humorous in the fourth , calling
the American congress by implication a
place of torment.

matchless oratory of Colonel Bryan ,

paralyzed Reese at Syracuse. "

"Colonel Bryan addressed the crowd
from the rear end of a train near Dun-
bar. There were five thousand present.
The ears upon every corn stalk in an adja
cent field crawled up onto a barbed-wire
fence and listened to his super-Webster-

1 'Fifteen thousand six hundred and ton
persons welcomed Colonel Bryan to
Holdrego on Saturday last. They
wept so while he depicted the oppressions
of railroads and other corporate diabol
isms that the fall wheat and autumnal
pasturage in that vicinity has been much
improved. His defense and eulogy of
House Rent Holcomb was a magnificent
tribute from one great and good states
man to another. 'The plain people'
were in beatitudes , ordinary bliss was
below par. " GULLIVER.
Everybody knows that sunlight is a
good thing for the skin , though few
people ever expose much of their skin to
its operation. But in Denmark the
doctors are experimenting with a light-

concentrated light lulls the bacteria in
a few seconds.
