SIDLING-ER, THE Y DRUGGIST PreBoriptionB a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson. The Passing or the Nightmare. The indications are that the People's party movement in Kansas will die, if it is not already dead, as rapidly as it came into existence. A mushroom will npring into full .development in a sin g\a night, but its decay is almost as rapid. This People's party is a sort of political fungus that attained its full growth in a single campaign, and lias already shown the unmistakable signs of decay. Now that the fog and miasma under which the new party sprung nto existence has largely cleared away, the farmers have had a chance to view this new product of Kansas soil, and the more closely they examine it the more thoroughly they are cou- Tinced that it has no stability. What promised to be n giant oak, turns out to be a miserable "toad-stool."' Hut it will not do to dismiss this party as the result of the machinations of demagogy. However culpable some of the lenders may have been the great body of that party was in a measure honest and sincere. Many of them in times of prosperity, or during the "boom" period, had contracted obligations, expecting the good times to continue and that the abundance of money in circulation would enable them to meet every maturing debt. The "boom'' collapsed, as all booms must do sooner or later. AVith the cruel irony of fate the decadence of wild speculation was followed by crop failures and low prices. The farmers were unable to meet payments falling due, the money lenders got scared-ami began to press their claims in the courts. Then the demagogue who had been buried under the prosperity of a dozen years crawled forth anil began to sing his song of repudiation. Capital became alarmed and withdrew from the state. Money became scarce. Those who had a few dollars hoarded it away, until they could see the trend of affairs. All this time the condition of the farmer who had boiTowed money to improve his farm was growing worse. The black night of dispair hid the bright dawn of hope. Like a child in the dark, his frightened mind readily conjured up all sorts of ghosts and "bogie men." The. ignis fatuus of fiat money appeared. He saw the false light and heard a voice in the wilderness crying this is "the way out." The more he wandered the farther into the wilderness he got. Then came the daybreak of good crops—the rosy morn of restored confidence and the bright sunshine of prosperity. While a few may still linger in the throes of the nightmare they have passed through, the most of the People's party realize they were more scared than hurt. Some have paid the penalty of unwise speculation and reckless extravagance. Some staked their all upon the future and lost. For this no political party is responsible, for political' parties cannot divert the the disasters of individual folly. The lesson has been a dear one to many, but the tendency of it all is to inspire the honest toiler who pursued the tenor of his way and attempted no "short cuts" to wealth. Gold and Silver. The report of the director of the mint, covering the calendar year 1891, recently transmitted to congress, contains the following information in reference to the production of gold and silver: The product of gold from the mines of the United States aggregated l,OQ4,H40 tine ounces, of the value of 833 ,175,1100. This is an increase of $330,000 over the product of the previous calendar year. The product of silver from our mines was 58,330,000 fine ounces, of the commercial value of |S7,030,040, or of the coming value, in silver dollars, of 975,4111,509. This is an increase of .1,830,000 ounces over the prior year. The total value of the gold deposited at the mints during the year was $70,015 ,B3a, of which 824.853,180 was foreign coin and bullion. The deposits and purchases of silver aggregated 73,088,080 standard ounces, of the coining vuluo of $S5,048,584. The amount of silver purchased by the government during the year was 54,393,012 fine ounces, costing $53,700,833. The aver- njre^cost of the silver purchased during the year 80.080 per fine ounce. The average cost of the total amount purchased under the act of July 14, 1800, has been 81-02 per fine ounce. The price of silver at the commencement of the calendar year 1891 was SI.058 per fine ounce, and at the elose, December 31. was 80.955 per fine ounce. The average price for the calendar year wac $0.99 per fine ounce. At the date of thti passage of the act of July 14, 1890, the price of silver was 81.07K per fine ounce; at the date the law went into effect it had advanced to $1.13. The highest point touched was on August 19, 1890, $1.21 per fine ounce. The lowest point touched was on March 28, 1892 , 80.85K per fine ounce. At the lowest price of silver during the year 1891 the commercial value of the silver contained in the silver dollar was $0.73 5f: at the high est price, $0,820, and at the average price $0,704. At the price of silver March 28, 1892, the commercial value of the pure silver in the dollar was 80.60. The imports of gold for the year 1891 aggregated $45,298,928; the exports, $79,187,499. The imports of silver ag gregated $27,910,193; the exports, $28,783,393. The total metallic stock of the United States on January 1, 1892 was: gold, 8088,«05,!11; silver, $547, 131,070, against a metallic stock on January 1, 1891, of $704,597,128 gold and $480,545,070 silver. The total amount of paper and metallic money in circulation on January 1, 1892 (exclusive of the amount in the treasury and its branches), was $1,592,393,029. against 81 ,528,594,027 on January 1, 1891, an increase of $03,799,002. The amount of paper and metallic money in actual circulation on April 1, 189: was $1,008,041,520. The world's product of gold ii creased in 1391 over the prior year nearly 82,000,000, the increase being principally in South Africa. The product of silver increased in 1891 over the prior year about 8,000,000 fine ounces. The increase in the silver product was principally in the United States, Australia and Holivia. In response to a request from the house committee on post and post rnuds as to the effect of one cent postage, Postmaster General Wanamakcr has answered that the estimated revenue from domestic mail matter of the first-class, chargeable with postage at the rate of two cents for each ounce or fraction thereof mailed during the year ended June 30. 1890, was $38,008,197, which amount was equal to 02.5 per cent, of the total revenue of the department. There has since been no change in the rate of postage acd it may be assumed, he believes, that the proportion of the different classes of matter shown may apply at the present time. The total revenue for the current year has been 872,777,150, of which amount 815,485,719 has been received from first-class matter. The reduction of the rate from 2 cents to 1 cent would, in the opinion of the postmaster-general, be followed by a corresponding loss of 522,742,859. Senator PKKFKII wants congress to make official inquiry, into the uses of electricity, the causes of fluctuations in the markets, the efficacy of various cures for rheumatism, and so on. And the Milwaukee Sentinel is mean enough to suggest that when congress gets fairly at it the country would be interested in an official report as to the practibility of using PKPKKK'S beard as a substitute for binding twine. United States were free trade strongholds. Their efforts have besn inspired by a deliberate purpose to mislead the public into the belief that the great majority of educated young Americans, the future leaders in the intellectual progress of the nation, were converts to the economic doctrines of Cobden and Clevelanl. Mr. John L. Dodge, president of the Harvard Republican club, effectively exposed this Democratic pretence in brief but telling speech at the great Republican gathering at Music Hall in Uoston on Tuesday night. Mr. Dodge showed that the great majority of students at Harvard are to-dny, as they have been for the past thirty years, firm adherents of Republican principles and policies. He proved by the record of all the ballots taken at Harvard from 1802 to 1891 that the Republican vote had been 09 per cent., or more than two-thirds of the whole. He recalled the fact that the largest and most successful mass meeting ef the last presidential campaign in Massachusetts was held under Harvard auspices, arranged by Harvard students and addressed by Harvard graduates; and ho pointed to the careers of those representative Harvard graduates, Theodore Roosevelt and Henry Cabot Lodge as an illustration of Harvard Repub- licansism. Mr. Dodge's forceful and timely address should be effective in arousing Republican energy in the lesser American colleges. The Press, recently called attention to the movement to form a national organization of college Republican clubs. This plan, which contemplates the formation of a Republican club in every American college, ought to highly sue cessful, and we do not doubt that it will be. The educated young men of the nation belong with Ihe party of progress and unflinching Americanism. In Yale, Amherst, Princeton, Cornell. Columbia, Williams, Dartmouth and every leading educational institution the preponder ant Republican sentiment should be organized for the cause of honest money, protection and reciprocity. Mr. Olildntono IUIII Wonum's lllghtH From the Chicago Inter Ocean. The superlatively zealous reformers who have delighted to protest that the rights of women are less recognized in the United States than in Great Uritain may abstain henceforth. Mr. Glad stone has spoken for the Liberals of England, and has assured womankind that it must remain voteless. There never has been good cause to believe otherwise than that America would be the first of all nations to grant political rights to woman, as it was first to recognize the universal right of man to share in the government of th country whose armies he filled, or to whose revenue he contributed. It simply is not true that the rights of woman ever have been as fully recognized in Great Britain as in the United States. The system of dower, of separate possession of real and personal property, the right to sole possession of her own earnings, common to all northern and several southern states are acknowledgements of woman's rights, which Englandi never yet has made, and which seems afSroff from making. It's true that women have found places on some of the county councils of England, and have filled them well. But it is true also that women are filling places on the boards of education in many of our cities, that they have been elected to serve as justices of the peace, and that they have served as mayors of towns. It is true also that the prospects of further recognition of woman's rights are far brighter here than there. In the United States no newspaper pretending to speak for the Republican partv would venture to say that the opposition of a leader to women's suffrage "betokens a distinct awakening of the politicians of all parties to the danger of an agitation the success of which will bring the country face to face with a new order of society." But this is what Mr. Gladstone's personal organ says. In this country there is no fear of the "new order of society" that woman suffrage , will bring about, but rather general belief that it is a measure that must be accomplished in due time and that its accomplishment will be more of a conservative than of a revolutionary proceeding. "And every night too," replied the patient sufforer, as he held one palm against his cheek for relief. "Why don't you have it pulled?" asked the sympathizer. "That is the obvious question to ask; but the reason is that I'm afraid of having my jaw dislocated, and that would •ever do, as most of my business consists in talking through a long distnnce telephone. Now, suppose I wanted to talk to a man in Chicago and only had sufficient strength in my jaw to reach Pittsburg I" "That would be rough on you," replied the other thoughtfully, "but yon •ught to follow lily plan. I have very frail and sensitive teeth. Some of them are polka dotted like the envelope of a coach dog, and once upon a time I could not inhale a mouthful of cold air without being almost lifted out of my shoes. And now they never ache at all. I can chow molasses candy like a college girl and allow ice cream to melt in my month." "What in the world did you do?" asked tho snfferer, whose tooth was jumping all over his head and whose expression was that of a drowning man reaching for a proffered pole. "Why, simply thiB: I went np town and secured board with a dentist. And if a tooth begins to ache I simply walk half a block in the direction of home, and the pain flies to the four winds even as a poor man flies to the court house to have a mortgage canceled."—Detroit Free Press. A Definition. The difficulty of defining certain very •iinple words is known to no one better than to tho makers of dictionaries. The word "life" has bothered definers a great deal; and one lexicographer was unable to do any better, in making his dictionary, than adopt a schoolboy's definition of tho word. "What is life?" asked the schoolmaster. "Being alive," answered the boy; and the lexicographer put it in his dictionary as IUB formal definition of the word—"the stato of being alive." Tho most elaborate. scientific definition of tho word does not define it bettor, because men of science do not really know what lifo is. In a certain text book of science, used in a great college, tho definition of the word was the following: "Life is that property residing in an organism by means of which it is enabled to appropriate materials from other organisms, and assimilate them to its own structure." There was in the class which was going over this subject a youth to whom an understanding of this formidable definition was utterly impossible. He was called upon, one day, by the professor, to tell what life is. The student struggled hard to recall tho definition, which he had laboriously committed to memory. But it had now utterly gone from hini. Ho was not the youth, however, to sit down without making any answer at all; so ho boldly said: "Life, professor, is all a fleeting show." He said it so sincerely, and tho answer seemed to reflect so faithfully his feelings at the time, that the professor Biniled and said: "1 don't know but that is as good a definition of it as nny."—Youth's Companion.

NEW YORK , April 11.— Mr. Nast, the caricaturist, was always an ardent admirer of General Grant. The great warrior was a warm personal friend (if the artist. It was at Mr. Nast's house, in fact, that the general was first'enter­ tained as a private citizen after leaving the White House at the close of his second term. "Knowing him ns I did," said Mr. Nast, describing one of the unpleasant features of his profession, "I never took any stock in (Jiesarism. I never believed, with Mr. Sumner and ninny others, that ho had any desire to overturn tho republic. Consequently, I not join in their assault on him. 'On the contrary, I attacked them, and among his opponents that I caricatured was Mr. Sumner, who appeared to feel it keonly. 'You are wrong, Mr. Nast,' ho said to mo the last time I saw him. 'You are a young man now, but you will see your mistake. If you are going to take Grant's side, yon must go j'our way and 1 mine.' That was the end of our friendship, but I never had occasion to regret my faith in General Grant's loyalty to the republic." P. F. A CURE. A. Sure Way nt I.ust to Cure the Tooth- uche.

"What's the matter with your face?" asked a friend when they mot on tho morning train. "Did you walk against the edge of a door last night while feeling around for a match?" "No," replied the man with the swollen face, smiling a farfetched smile that rippled over tho rosy excrescence like the first faint flush of dawn on a brindled dog, "it's a pluin, everyday toothache."
