C. E. SIDLING-ER, THE Y DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 1*> North Main Street, Hutchinson, A Lesson in Cheap Currency. It ia truly a had state of affairs that prevails in the Argentine Itcpublic, Mouth America. The consular reports referring to the financial condition of the country and people say: "Thousands of those who truBted and were deceived here in the country have been nold out of house and home, and the daily papers are full of the advertisements of others whose estancius, palatial residences and gorgeous furniture must go to moet their unpaid notes in bank. The role of the public auctioneer is the best-paylnjf business in the country. Many who two years ago thought themselves wealthy are now being dragged through the meshes of the bankrupt courts ultnost without the necessaries nf life." Such are the fruits of wild inllution and attempts to uiake money out of nothing. The people of Argentine became possessed of the idea that the great end of the government was to make the money for the people, and, it was argued, that such money should be made, just as cheap as possible. There should be enough for all, so that any man needing money could get it. It was to be the, ideal country of the world, in which every man would be supported in idleness by the government. The presses were set to work making currency. It was issued in packages, sheets, blocks, or hi any shape desired. It was the ideal "postage stamp" currency, that bus been recommended for the United States. Everybody felt rich. lOxtravaganee knew no limits, luxury wus the order of life and economy bud no place in human affairs. The condition of affairs wus too happy to last. Other countries doubted the wisdom of such a iinan' cial policy anil became suspicious of Argentine securities. They demanded gold in exchange for their products. The immutable laws of trade and commerce were stronger than the laws enacted by, the Argentine legislators. The money of that country wus soon without intrinsic value or public confidence to back it. Those who saw "the handwriting on the wall," and could interpret it aright hftarded their gold, and rid themselves of the fiat currency. The sunshine of prosperity poised away and a pall of ruin spread its dark folds over the. land. Disaster followed disaster, while bankruptcies and business failures were the new order of things. Argentine had been scorched ut the Hume of visionary theories. Let those who have been infatuated by the glowing promises of llatism, or the allurements of a seventy-cent dollar learn a lesson from the experience of Argentine, The treasury statement for March shows a decrease of Sr >,073,0B0 in gold certificates, JHUU.OSil in gold coin, and $702 ,777 in "standard" silver dollars with an increase of 8238,1)37 in subsidiary silver, 8041,003 in silver certificates, $815,50? iii national bank notes, and Vi,U0i,m In old legal tenders und currency certificates. The statement for the llrst of this month, compared witli that of August, 1800, shows the following changes in treasury reserves: Decrease, S5S,448 ,UU7 in gold coin, aud •7 ,080.974 in subsidiary silver, with un increase of 8311,318,010 iu standard silver, »54,001,0U1 in silver bullion, and |11 >,U65 ,M3 iu gold bullion. The passage of the cotton tie bill, which strikes a deadly blow at northern industry for the assumed benefit of the cotton planters, is a sharp remind- «r of other days when the crack of the southern whip was often heard in Wushiugtou. Not a northern Democratic member, we believe, has advocated this bill, while several of the ablest northern Democratic journals have opposed it. But when the time came to stand up and be counted, only three northern Democrats dared to refute to do the bidding of their southern mastei'B. Thus history repeals itself. •—Hostou Journal, , lOx-Henator I .NOAM.S while in Chicago, a few days ago, expressed his views in reference to the present political outlook and probable results of the coming campaign. He said: "Hr .AiNK 1R now not to bo thought of. HIM. is to-day the smallest man in the country. DI.AINK was the choice of enthusiasm; HAitiilKON ! B that of common-sense. HIM. was to have been nominated by machinetrickery;Ci ,Kvic- I .AXD will be nominated by the musses of his party. The present Democratic congress was elected ou Cleveland principles and on anti-McHinlcy plnt- forrtis. What have, the Democrats in congress accomplished on their line'.' Nothing. They have, nibbled at the McKinley bill like mice at the feet of an elephant. On silver they have tried to satisfy both the free- coinage west and the money-bags of Wall street, trying to straddle the question like a circus performer, with one foot on each of two horses going in opposite directions. The result will be CI.KVUI.AND'S nomination, and the result of that will be HA unison's reelection. My own state will return to the fold. The present programme in Kansas is to give the electoral vote to the Democrats and the state offices to the Alliance. It will fail." In regard to His political future, the ex-senator remarked, "I have no further desire for public life." Senator I 'KFi'F.n in an interview the other day said he could not sec how any man representing an agricultural district could support the free woo) bill. It was certainly not in the interest of the Kansas farmers to compete with 15 and 20 cent labor of •South America, Hl< cent labor of England and the very cheap labor of Australia, lie was also unable to see how a farmer constituency could support a free trade idea. The jester of Speaker Cmsr's court amused the visitors iu the house galleries last Tuesday by solemnly declaring: "I don't believe we need u navy: we don't need a navy at all. The Republicans want a navy, but Democrats don't want no navy because we want to trade with the whole world. There is no commerce, no American ships; why build a navy or dry dock?" .lust after heaving from llhode Island UKOVKU OI.KVKI.ANT> wrote to a southern admirer saying that he sometimes doubted the wisdom of again being a presidential candidate.

DKSIOWIAT. Viows of nn Kximtrluted Smth. An American In the London speaker. The men. who run the llepublican and Democratic machines care not a fig for either protection or free trade as principles, but simply use the terms when thought useful as political weapons. While it is true that there is how a tendency in the United States toward free trade, yet it is but a tendency. I hope Hill will be the Democratic nominee; I hope he will be elected. Ho represents all that is bad in American politicB, and there is little but bud in it. Therefore he is most truly representative. Americans require strong medicine to work tlicin up, and Hill is as heroic a dose as one could wish them. In 1888 Cleveland was not nominated on account of hbi honesty or his principles, but simply because the Democratic wire -pullers recognized that he was the only man who stood a chance of winning. It was goll and wormwood to them to put up an honest man. Today conditions have changed, so that it appears that they can win with one of their own kind as a leader. Hence Hill's appearance is only a symptom of how rotton things are in the United States, and even if Cleveland were again nominated and elected president it would simply be putting a plaster over our political cancer.

'TIS THE STEEL AGE 30ME OF THE WONDERS OF MODERN BRIDGE BUILDING. Tho (Jrcilt Structure Soou to Spun tho nistorln ltlver Thames—Other ITrJdges or Note to n* Ftitnd In Knglunil and America. " It has been tritely said that while the art of bridge building in ancient aud the science of bridge building is modern, tho Hkill of the present engineer has lie- coine the special flower and glory of our age of steel. The earliest timber bridge on record ia that which was thrown over the Rhino by Julius Cresar; bnt long ages licfore the Chineso bnilt stone bridges of great magnitude and first introduced in their construction the principle of the arch. Ono of these is four miles long, seventy feet high and has 800 arches. The Romans followed, and nothing in the way of modern bridges tip to fifty years ago equaled the one bnilt by the Emperor Trajan, A. D. 104, over the Danube. During the l»Bt two centuries some very beautiful bridges have been erected in France, and in Venice there are no fewer than 830. In Great Britain tho art kept pace with its progress on tho Continent, the most ancient, bridge being that at Croy- lnnd, Lincolnshire, said tohavebeenbuilt in 800. Tho bridge over tho Trent at Burton, in Staffordshire, was bviilt in the Twelfth century. It was 1,545 feet long. Old London bridge was begun in tho reign of Henry II in 1170, and its erec- Thc fusiouists of the Alliance are going to make a discovery and that is Communicated. EniTon NKWBV If you please, sir, 1 want to speak a few words as a Democrat. I never did like crow. 1 have always been in the habit of taking mine straight—that is, my politics- except when I voted for J. It. Hallowell, and I did that because I couldn't vote for Jerry Simpson, and if the Democrats do next fall as they did two years ago, I shall either not vote at all or vote for the Republican nominee; and it now looks a little like 1 am going to be forced to do that very thing. I f there was any principle involved in the fusion contemplated there might be some excuse for it, but on tho other hand to fuse is to surrender principle, and do anything to defeat the opposite party. Well, if the Democratic party can't stand on its merits and fight it out on that that line, It had better quit and tako a little rest, until it can gather more strength. As long us a child doesn't try to walk —it never will walk—and to have somebody to constantly hold it up and lead to prevent it from falling, is just simply to defer the independent action of the child. Now, if the Democrats depend on the Alliance year after year, for what Buccesg they expect to achieve, just so long will they cheat themselves out of an independent effort at accomplishing what they might be able to do on their own hook. It is better, in my estimation, to be independent and lose than to be depend ent and lose; or, for that matter, to be dependent and gain. 1 would like to see lhe Democrats try to do something without catering to the whims of somebody else; and then after tho whims have been catered to and the somebody, else have gotten everything, all tho Democrats can do is to go home like whipped ours, aud wait until it comes time to cater agaiu. I menu the above simply as a doflni Thv Modern Courtship of t'ult'b BJliftley and M:triii Stilton. For fifty years Caleb Binkley and Maria Sutton had lived neighbors in a double houso on a plensaut street of a little old New England village. They bad grown up together there, and they had seen all the members of their families curried lo the graveyard on the hill, leaving them alone in their houses. For twenty years they had lived thus, and their rttiys went by peacefully anil happily. Unu morning in May, Caleb was in the garden back of his house, prodding away with his hoc, and Maria was in hers fixing a flower bod. "It's a line morning, Maria," callo'l Caleb across the fence. \, "Beautiful," said Maria. "Seems ez ef the sun was shining for our benefit, don't it?" remarked Caleb, dragging a tangled weed from his hoe handle. "Yes, Caleb, 1 guess it sliineB down on my side about like it docs on yours." Caleb looked up at the blue sky for a moment and then walked over to th fence. "I say, Marin," he said, "I 've been thinkin about tnlcin down this fence. Vour pa and mine put it up hero forty year ago, but 'twan't never much use What do you say to takiu it down?" "Might ez well ez not, I guess, Caleb,' aBsented Maria, without changing her position. A minute or two later Caleb, with an ox in his hand, was back again. "Maria," he said, "1 guess ef a thing hez got to be done it might ez weU be dono right off, hadn't it?' "I guess it might, Caleb." Maria went on with her digging, while Caleb hewed and chopped at tho wooden fence, und at last the work was done. "It'll make good firewood, Maria," he said, as ho surveyed tlio wreck, "and if you'll tell me where you want your half put I'll pile it Up for you handy." "It looks summat strange not to see a dividin line between us, don't it, Caleb?" she remarked as she stood up and looked across both gardens. "I was noticin that myself, Maria," he said quietly. "Twan 't no uso," was it?" she inquired, doubtfully gazing at the fence prone on tho earth. "Never was," he answered. Then ho came nearer. "Ain 't much more use in two people livin in two houses either, is there, Maria?" he said. "None that I can see, Caleb," she responded, with a faint glow of color in her cheeks aud neck. Caleb seouied to be trying to swallow somothing that would not go down. He attempted to speak and failed, and then he tried to go to her and that was on ignominious failure also. At lost hu made a successful effort at speech. "Maria," he said, pulling himself np straight, "whore do you want your half of tho old fence piled?"

After having served its purpose more thau 050 years it gave place to the present structure, which wus begun in 1S5-1 and finished iu 18;!1. This is but ono of sixteen of the finest architectural works of their kind in tho world that span tho Thames. The first metal bridge in England was erected in 1770 over tho Severn, and it is a curious circumstance) that Thomas Paino was a successful contriver of uu iron bridge, which in 1787 he proposed to construct without any iron piers over the Schuylkill iu Philadelphia, as the Ftreain was apt to be choked with ice in tho spring freshets. His backers becoming bankrupt, however, the structure wus not finished uml tho materials wore used in England, This work was long regarded as a great triumph of art, us span being £:i(i feet long with a rise of ol feet. Suspension bridges wero erected in America OJ early as 17 00 by a Mr. Finlay, who in 1S01 took out a patent, and in 1811 eight bridges had been built on his plan. Subsequently, iu 1820, a chain cable suspension bridgo was built across tho Straits of Meuai, which until then formed a troublesome obstruction upon tho great road from London to Dublin. Many beautiful suspension bridges have since been erected in Great Britain anil on tho Continent. The most remarkable wire suspension bridge in Europe, on account of its dimensions und height, is that of Freyhurg, in Switzerland, which has a span from pier to pier of "870 fee! and is suspended ut the height of 107 feet above the river which flows un der it. One of the most wonderful achievements of engineering art is the steel bridgo aero: -s the Firth of Forth, in Scotland. It ha:; i lie longest, span, the greatest weight and tho greatest length of any yet built. Tho structure shown in the illustration, which thousands of workmen are now hurrying to completion, will ba known as the Tower bridgo, inasmtich as it will cross tho Thames near the Tower of London. It is ono of tho most remarkable undertakings of the kind in existence, spanning as it does what is perhaps tho busiest waterway on earth. Tho peculiarity of its construction consists in two huge.leaves weighing 950 tons, each of which is raised and lowered to a level thirty feet above high water, somewhat after the manner of an ancient drawbridge, thus affording passage for river craft. They are shown in the cut open. A hundred feet above this bridge level is another roadway for the accommodation of foot passengers, who are to bo lifted to it in elevators running through tho .towers whenever the lower portion of the bridge is ojien and travel is impeded. The cost will bo $3,500,000. A project is now under discussion for spanning the Hndso.n river with steel wire suspension cables that will support a highway fifteen feet loftier than the great Brooklyn bridge aud large enough to accommodate six lines of railroad. Its span, as contemplated by the engineers, will be 8,850 feet long and 150 feet above the water. Compared with the Brooklyn bridge its length, including anchorage, will be 0,500 feet; the former measures 8,700 feet. Each au- chorageof the North River bridge will •weigh 600,000 tonB, while that of the Brooklyn bridge woighs only 60,000 tons. The cost is roughly estimated at 110,000,000. Among other suspension bridges iu the United States is that at Wheeling, which has a span of 1,010 feat; at Niagara, with a span of 831 feet and a road-, way 250 feet from the lino of the river; at Pittsburg, withaspau of 1.1W5 feet; at Cincinnati, with a total length of 2,220 feet and a span of 1,057 feet. Other ox-' amples of advanced bridge architecture, and engineering aro to bo found in many other sections of the country, and tho improvements continually made show that American skill is fully abreast of that of any other people in the world. the progressive leader.
