SIDLINGER, THE Y DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson. Why Jerry Wants Free Trade. J!oi(. .IKHKMI.UI SIMPSON has some queer ideas about political economy. In liis speech on the cotton ties hill, lust Friday, he argued that the United was getting poorer because it sold abroad mm-c. than it bought; because our exports lire greater than our imports. To use his own words: ••The protective tarilf Keen on the theory that a nation gel* rich by keeping out wealth, by sending out Its prochicts ;ind bringing nothing In. It a.snumeH that the more wealth you send out and the less you bring In the richer the country becomes: ami the gentleman quotes here statistics allowing that the 'balance of trade' is In our favor: that we sent out last year glSO.UOU.- (tot) worth or products more than we brought in: and it la argued that for this reason we are getting rich. ••Kir, when I wan down In Florida a little over a year ago. as I stood on the deck of a steamer, pausing out through the magnificent harbor of 1 'ensacola. I saw Ufty-Uve Rhtps in that harbor, all exrepl two Hying a foreign (lag. f inquired of the collector of the iKist, 'How many of these vessels come into tulH port ladenV He said, "Not a single one enters this port with a cargo; they bring only ballast.' 'i'liese vessels were loading up with the productions of the great state of Florida; they were preparing to carry out the wealth of the United Slates, but not a single one brought anything in but old ballast ami dirt gathered from loreign countries, anil unloaded over at Quarantine Island. Now, how does such a business benefit this nation? Kvery ship taking out a cargo was forced to charge double freight because she brought no cargo In. How did that benefit that country? Why should we be seudlug out our wealth and brluglng nothing in?" We repeut Unit Mr. SIJIPNON hits <|iieer ideas of political economy. According to his theory the farmer who sells a thousand dollars worth of products more than lie buys is a thousand dollars poorer, while his neighbor who buys a thousand dollars worth more than he sells is a thousand dollars richer. If the farmer wants to get rii.'h, accordiiif? to Jitiiltv'K theory, all he needs to do is to buy lots ami sell nothing'. The farmer who hauls his wheat, corn, oats or hogs to market and lmuta' no sugar, tens, eoil 'ees, dry goods or farm machinery bade with liiin is on the down grade to bankruptcy; while the man who hauls his empty wagon to toivn, tulles iinaiiee on the street corner all day. and takes a loud of merchandise home with him Xtx thu evening, it* on the highway to prosperity. Tim man who lays away a thousand dollors a year is an object of pity, while the man who gives his note for u thousand dollars worth of lifting jacks, lightning rods, and patent con- eoritH he cannot pay for is to lie congratulated, on his thrift. That is ^KnUr's philosophy. We don't understand it, and we don't believe the average farmer will. It is in direct contradiction of the old fogy notion that "economy is the road to wealth," and that to accumulate riches a man must spend less than he earns. We don't believe the average Araeri- uau'eitizen will mingle his tears with those of the great financier of Mcdi- ciuo Lodge, as he contemplates tho spectacle of ships coining into our ports empty and going away laden with our exports. Neither will he agree with Mr. SIMPSON that we are going to the dcmultion how-wows because there is an annual balance of $12(1,000,000 in our favor in our t rude with oilier nations. We. are not surprised that Junuvis & free trader. A man holding such ideas of economy ought to he u free trader—"absolute." He can consist ently be nothing else. Ood Almighty evidently had the free trader in mind when He conceived the pattern after which such men are modeled. The uaun who thinks we should allow the oranges to rot in the orchards of Flor idu, while we send our gold abroad to buy the oruuges of Sicily, would do his conscience a serious injustice if he did not raise his voice for free, trade The mau who would see the foreign vessels eome into our ports laden with imports und go out ballasted with American sand, is u free trader at kcurt, as he is un enemy to the material prosperity of our country. Commenting on the political situation iu Kansas the Boston Journal says: "Tariff reformers" und Alliance men Imvc both ceased lo chase pal Itieal rainbows in Kansas. The Republicans of the slate are 'enthusiastically pushr ing the work of organization, and are determined to win u victory. They are promoting their stale's best interests by so doing, for it is perfectly well understood here in the east that another eleetiou like that of liiilO, and another Alliance triumph would give the credit ol ICit -nsns n shock from which it could not easily recover. The very best thing which! could possibly happen for Kansas would be the rolling up of an old fashioned llcpublicnn majority next November. That would instantly revive the coufldenee of eastern investors, whose help is needed to develop the resources of the state, but who will withhold that help until they have some guarantee against rash and suicidal legislation. (Ine specially important fact from an eastern standpoint, is the wide-spread revulsion of sentiment on the silver ipiestion. Two years ago the congressional and district conventions all declared for the free coinage of silver. Now four-fifth of the Kansas Republicans are opposed to it. The same significant circumstance is witnessed elsewhere in the west. The party will enter the national campaign united on the two great issues of protection and honest money. _ The report of the state agricultural college in reference to the culture of grapes sets at rest the fears of being poisoned by eating fruit, that has been sprayed to kill insects. After careful investigation and analysis they Hud that even where there is little rain to wasli uwuy the poisonous cbemicnls used, the amount to be found on the fruit after ordinary spraying is so small that it is in no sense injurious to persons eating the fruit. JOHN CALVIN MOSS, the inventor of the photo-engraving or etching process, by which newspaper portraits are produced, has gone to his rewirrd. We leave it with the men who have been libeled by the average newspaper cut to say just, what that reward is. Tile Drainage. 8ome writers have attributed the lowering of the water level to Hie drainage but it has bad but little if anything to do as a procuring cause. To the contrary, says The Drainage Journal, deep nndordrain.iue - Tves to hold back the water, for wiiliotti underdraiuage the compact surface, with open drains along the roadways and unobstructed natural outlets lor the water, causes it to How oway rapidly. With deep underdrailis the open, porous soil will take up the water of all ordinary rains a9 it falls and pass it down to the drain, the soil, subsoil and under stratus taking np a largo proportion of the water, permitting only the excess to pass out through the tile drains. The soil from the surfaco down to the drain will absorb water to the point of saturation. The amount of water retpiired to wet the soil depends upon the character of tho soil, the finer soils absorbing the greater quantity, if the underdrain is deep—throo or four feot—it is evident that a heavy rainfall will be required to wet the soil down to tho drain. It is true also that after tho rainfall the stir face soil will first bo relieved of any excess of water, so ou slowly down to ths drain; the water flowing in from tin sides of the drain necessarily prevents a rapid lowering of the water level. So. in fact, the thorough imderdntiuage o) the soil serves to hold back the Witer when compared to the surface How Where the underi '.r.r.nagi' is sufficient t5 pass the w.iler of or. Unary rainfall down th .rote.rli tin- ..1 to a depth of throe or four fewr. Hr- drain* will inn wator long nfler Hi" op-u drums :tiul small natural omi, i> drainagehavtf run dry.

The builders of his day had a boodle ring of their own which could have given pointers to any Tammany crowd. The Wichita lieucon says that if there is a fusiou between the People's party and Democrats in Kansas this year it "must be made above board and without any hemming or hawing about the word or the practical result." These 1-JniIg-rants are Well-to-Uo. From the Baltimore American. If the class of immigrants that arrived here last Friday on the Nord- deutseher Lloyd steamship "Stuttgart" from Bremen it; a forerunner of what are to come, then, indeed, immigrants will become a, blessing in the future, and not a plague. The one thousand, tour hundred and twenty-four persons on the Stuttgart had iu actual cash and mostly in American money, gold silver and notes, at least $42,000. This was exclusive of their baggage and what they wore. No person had less than 85, and he was poor, indeed. One family had ?. r i,500, another 84,200; half a dozen had a least .51 ,000 eucn, a dozen SaOO each, another man had a check for 22,000 marks, equal to 85,500 in cash, and his son had $2,000 in American money; another, with a desire to become a farmer or a cattle king in the far west, had $2,000 to back up his desire; an Austrian waiter had STOO, and he will stay in Baltimore, and so the list runs. Nearly all those having SSOO or more,went west to Nebraska and Kansas, their one desire seeming y.< Wtilv 9H fiirw".

The air was sharp and clear and the jingle of the sleigh- bells made merry music everywhere. Mr. Plaqnemine of Louisiana was calling on a pretty Woodward avenue girl. I presume, Mr. Plaquemine," she said to him, dnintly, as the southerner looked out upon the winter scene, that you scarcely know iu Louisiana what sleighing means." "Um-er-ah-yes," he hesitated, it means $10 an hour iu Louisiana, but I presume It means considerably iess up here."

The ladies of the Universalist church will hold a fair and festival, on the 27th, 28th and 2!)th of this month, on Main street. The place will be announced later. The ladies propose to make the occasion attractive, entertaining and enjoyable. They • are working to make it the occasion of the season, and their record in this line justifies the presumption that they will succeed. For the past three years they have held no fair on account of hard times, and have, not troubled the good people for assistance and contributions, and this occasion should be a successful one for them. They propose to call upon the public for assistance, feeling that it will not be looked upon as imposition. Committees have been appointed who will soon call upon you to assist in making their efforts a grand success. \\ e hope that thoy will be cordially < received and generously treitcd. Remember the dates, and do not let dates with other organi'/.a^tions conflict. is no membership fee, nor is there any financial tax connected with the club.

I 'linbh BUSINESS BUSINESS HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY FOOD FOR THOUGHT. f^riginality is .the characteristic of the progressive American business man. He is a born leader. He never permits himself to follow. We pride ourselves as belonging to this class. Our business career shows unqualified leadership. Our reputation as the regulators of prices on standard wares its indisputable. The Grand advertises original bargain prices Only. Competitors are compelled to reluctantly follow us. In the wake of our "Economists' Price Current' 1 of our bargain advertisement, you will alwayB find th« would-be competitors copying therefrom. Have you ever failed to find at The Grand the articles differing other than advertised? You have not. For we make it a practice to advertise that which we have in stock and are able to furnish. When we do advertise a specialty, an exceptionally good thing, a bargain in any of our wares, we always have a sufficient supply to meet all reasonable demands. Reading onr announcement in the evening and calling for the articles the following morning you will never meet with the sorrowful response, "we regret it very much, but we are just out," as is the case with the so-called tradesman. Watch these columns closely and observe our original bargains, then compare with others, piece for piece and price for price, and your conclusions will be additional proof for the validity of our claims to the title of the only original creators of low prices on standard merchandise i" this city.
