' ' Ami s'o Arkansas has gone Popocral- Ic! This is sad. Arkansas Is not a great state.' It-'.never produced anything of note but the Arkansaw traveler, aud he was probably from some other state. It is a state of swamps and .malaria. The festive mosquito plays upon'the helpless victim of miasma. The .niglu.owl hoots .and 'tho • whip-poor-will whoops: the low-"(lc- scemliiig sun witnesses microbes without .number creeping from their, lair and flie stealthy bacilli .picking','but .their victims. Tho principal products of Arkansas are bogs, fogs, frogs, mosqnltos and malaria. The omuipo- ti;nt Mississippi occasionally rises in .its might and gives Arkansas a bath, but otherwise it is Independent and recognizes no Board of Health, It is beyond theyale of civilization. Arkansas has 810,517 whites, 311,227 colored. 304 Indians and 13i Chinese, mostly Popocrats. The agricultural products are cotton, corn, tobacco, sweet potatoes, grapes, peaches and melons. Half of the state has good land, half Bad.' Arkansas voted iu 18G1 to secede by 27,412 for, to 33,820 against, and it/has voted that way ever since on any .proposition involving loyalty and good- government. The water Is bad and few drink It. The per cent, of illiterate -is largo.' Most of the people favor Idler 1 ; ness and government rations. The-i&r 1 Chinese do the entire laundry work of the state, and have to lire on rice. The 304 Indians furnish the meat. The colored people display tlie-only enterprise manifested. The election Monday was a great victory, but one that every citizen of Indiana, whatever his party, ought to be ashamed of. t Prospects in Indiana^Casis ty Corn Safe. • The •Agricultural, expewmWt" sti- tion at Purdue University, a tfr:irfca"o.C ..the-U.

The very class that, can sur- vlv.e no reduction In Income; would-be affected by a change of money standards. There Is no one knows this better than the veteran himself. The Popocrats admit that the veterans and the salaried classes will be damaged by free coinage of silver.
