Rr' BRYAN AND COERCION, Mr. Kry;in does not realize that -his course with -the railway men- drives tho lic-sitnting'ones from likn into the clubs tli-a't urjre their liest Interusts. He ridicules tho sp'outaneous movc- nioiit of the men whose wages nre thrwiteuod. He \irpes them to take a eliwiiH'iHHl dollar, with the bare chance of :i raise In wages. The men he charges with cowardice and lack of ordinary American independence know 'that they onu only secure a raise in wages iu these lianl times-with diniculty. They know that thcilr omployoi-s would be placed in serious strnlits by a free silver coinage system .and a drop to the silver basis, for tho debts of the roads are payable iu honest dollars. They would rather have, as Bonrkc Cockrau s.lid at the rauliaiHlle station, ;\. better dollar, aud the present certainty of wages, than the chrap dollar, with only the bare chance of nu iDcreflsc in salary. By his talk of coercion, Mr. Bryan Insults the wage eawicrs who ear.ri every dollar of their wages honestly with their hands,'and not by the trained workings of n phenomenal chin.

COMPARE THEM "The Republican party is unreservedly for sound money. It caused the •enactment of tbe law providing for the • resumption of specie payments in 1870; glnce then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase onr currency or impair the credit of our country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- log commercial nations or the world, which wo pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures de- •Igned .to maintain inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or pa per,, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform.

Who is to watch the railway man's interest if he does not see to it himself? Surely not the Bryanites. They have not considered the laboring man. In the formuaating of their platform they looked At ter the bomb thrower and the torch-bearer, and those who encourage these destroyers, but they put forward a proposition to double the prices' on the consumers of all products while (it tho same time they cheapen the dollar of -the wage earners, with not even a PopocraUc promise of a raise In wages. They tell the farmer he will get twice as much for his crops, the wage worker that the .silver dollar will buy as much •as the gold dollar. The railway men, knowing their best interests, and believing earnestly and steadfastly in a good dollar, gather at the call of the sound money champions. Where there Is no call njade, the men themselves, as in Logansport, send out the rallying note, -and" the clubs are forming in all the.States. It is a. ques- tion'of the farmer's welfare and tho working man's own wages. 'It Is a question of future happiness and well. living. Let the work go on. A CHANGE FOR GAIN. The speeches of free silver fanatics, which did not attract the attention of Democrats four years ago, nor two years back, nor one year since, are being paid for this year by the party, that held n convention In the name of tho party of Jefferson. As a Populist said recently, the Democrats who work for free silver do not know how to make the Populist arguments, and must purchase culpa.ble sipouters from the People's party, nnd got pointers from these old veterans ait discontent snouting. There are few Popocrat speakers for silver. They have none •in Cnss county. Their taJent is hired tPopuli'St wind power. It Is just so all over the country. Their leader is an avowed Populist crank v^ho failed in all but the art of spoil-binding; a maudlin, irresponsible audience under control of Altgeld. , The men who hflve left the ranks of the Populist party for gain, and who harangue appla.uding silveri-to crowds over the country, have lost the respect nnd 'sympathy of the Middle of the Road Populists, who believe unalterably In their parry -and its perman- oojcy. They are outcasts, and tlieir first step has been to get rtnto bad com- ,pauy. They will lose.

There is a romance connected with the Whitnay-Vanderbilt wedding which has been but little noticed in the numerous accounts of the affair. The wedding was the fitting finale of an old- fasnioned courtship. Soon after the young heiress made her debut in society it come to the ears of young Whitney that Miss Vanderbilt and Moses Taylor, an intimate friend of Willie Vanderbilt,.were engaged to be married. Young- Whitney is, like his father, a man of purpose and of action. He-at once went to -Newport and sought Miss Vanderbilt at The Breakers. The gossips who whispered that these young people, spent a great deal of their time together began to talk of another engagement and this time their guesses were correct. Harry Whitney and Miss Gertrude Vandftrbilt have known each other from childhood. Their love grew up as they did. The Vanderbilt mansion on Fifty- seventh street, New York, is across the way from the residence of the Whit- Keys, and thaossociation of the children of the fojnilies has always been intimate. At Yale college Harry Whitney was the faithful friend and chum of \Villie Vanderbilt, the brother of the bride to be, who died a few years ago. The close friendship of these schoolmates made young Whitney a constant visitor at the Vanderbilt house, where he and Gertrude saw much of each other. Young Whitney and his bride are spending their honeymoon at the modern Eden, prepared by his father. Later in the autumn they will go abroad and spend the winter in southern Europe. They probably will not go alone, for if thg statements of near friends of Miss Vanderbilt's family are, correct, her cousin, Miss Edith Shepard, will also be married by that time and both brides and bridegrooms will travel together. They will not return to'this country until next spring. A third, bridal party in'the company is not considered improbable. In, fact, many of Miss. Amy Bend's friends say that,, notwithstanding the • numerous 'denials ol an engagement between her and William K. Vanderbilt, it does exist, and "that their marriage will bo on* of tbe notable events of the early fall •boson in New York. Miss Bend is on intimate friend of Miss Vanderbilt, and It is likely that in the event of her marriage to W. K. Vanderbilt she will also join Mr. Whitney and his bride.

The town of Ne-ou-say, in Kendall county, HI., has a sensation, and all because Mrs. Platt, an invalid and member of one of the prominent families of Kendall county, is obeying her physician's instructions to tho letter. The family recently built a new hou* about three-quarters of a mile from the old one, and, loading Mrs. Plntt, who ha* been ill for a year, into a surrey on an improvised cot, they started for their new home. • It happened that Mrs. Platt's physician hod warned her about a certain jpain with which she was sometimes afflicted. When she felt this pain coming on, the physician said, no matter 'where she was she' was to stop nnd remain there until it had passed. Before the surrey bad proceeded far on its way toward the new house, Mrs. Platt felt the pain coming on. She took the doctor's advice laterally and stopped the carriage. The vehicle was wheeled to one side of the. road and the patient proceeded .to make herself us comfortable us possible and wait for the pain to pass. That was four weeks ago and she has not moved far from there since. Her brother, J. Updyke, sleeps under the .carriage, at night, and a canvas has been rigged over the cot.for protection during the day. Whenever Mrs. Platt feels a little better the carriage is started toward the new house a.nd is stopped again when the pain comes on. Progress lias not been very.rapid; only ten rods have been covered in the past week, but it ishopcd that the family will, be able to celebrate Christmas in tho new home. The roadside hospital is on the road leading from Oswego to Plainfield, and has been visited by hundreds of people. White Women In Aliuka. Six women with more than the usual amount of pluck have gone to the All ask'an gold region. Not that they ex pect'to ff6t,precious metal by.'mining, . but by perfonning taks appropriate to women, aad without thc,-performanc2 of which men cannot.be comfortable. Three of them took sewing machines with them, and all expect to make hig<h wages in a country where white women are scarce. Millionth MM Ticket.

In order to celebrate the success of the popular undertaking, the committee presented the fortunate recipient of the millionth ticket with a souvenir, consisting of • solid siiyiir knife', fork and STxxon, TWO CHINESE GIRLS. The only Chinese girls who ever took a college course are at present en roure j'roiu America to their Oriental homes. "New women," they will, without douljr, 'be termed, and their cojnpa- i rriots will gravely shake tlieir queu?, j nnd roll their almond eyes when tbe I following sign appears placed conspicuously in public: Meiylii'Sbie, M. D. and Ida Kaim, M. D." The shock will be gre.it and the new practitioners expect to have more time than p.-iitients, just at first. However, tliey .ire brave, calm and deter- m'ined, and "their future career will be • watched with every expectation of their eminent success," to quote President .Taaues Augell of Ann Arbor University. . . Tlie two young women. Ida Kalm and MeiyJi. or Mary Stone, as her name lias -boeu Anglicized, were graduated June last from the Department ol Medicine and Surgery of Ana Arbor University. They then spent t\vo months in further pursuing -their studies at hospitals, and the last ot August sailed for rlic far East. Their home is Kinklang. on the Yangise river. Miss Charlotte Howe, :i missionary M th.it port, became much interested in these two young women, who came under uer instruction and influence while in China, and when she returned "to this country a.bout four years ago they accompanied her. They hnd become imbued with the missionary spirit and youus as they were then, the one seventyeu, the other a little older, the noblest career seemed 'that of being able to minister to those of tlieir own sex who were physically afflicted. lu time their services will be required without doubt by high caste ladies nnd those in the zannna.izid harem. But their particular desire is to- 1 become medical missionaries. The Chinese maidens, as said above, wore great favorites, at the university, which, by iJUc-wny, is in'ore widely and favorably known in China,, than .any other familiar American institution, for the -reason that the President, Jameson. Augell, was Minister there in 1873 and 1870. In,,18S5 the Chinese government presented to the university the exhibit .-which it sent to the Xcw Orleans exhibition. The collection numbers several thousand specimens and illustrates the Chinese processes of manufacturing silk and cotton. There are also many articles showing the skill of the^Chinese- In •working in wood, ivory and porcelain and in painting on glass and on silfe. Dr. Kahn and Dr. Stone are so modest and unassuming that it was extremely difficult to induce them to •speak personally of their work. After a four years' residence in this country they ore naturally anxious to hasten home, and to a question regarding tlieir future movements Dr. Stone said: "TTe shall probably go Into general, practice as soon as we get home." In Yankee parlance—they will "hang out tbeir shingles." At present, they say they see no prospect of other girls coming to study in this country—nt least to take a college course. Aptiulk. Some curious forms of aphasia have beea noticed by Dr. Pities among: persons who speak more than one language fluently. Patients do not lose control of the words equally in every language that they can speak. Usually there IB general aphasia; then, as the patient improves, he becomes able to understand nnd then to speak the language w'ith which he is most familiar, and. Inter with the others.
