It caused the enactment of the law providing for the -resumption of specie payments in 1879; fllnce then every dollar has been as food as gold. , • "We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency or impair the credit of oar country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- log commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, «nd until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with (old, and we favor all meaSares deigned, to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of' both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 1C to 1, without .waiting for the aid or consent of any other -nation. We demand that the Standard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with .gold, for all debts, public and private, and we favor such legislation as will prevent the demonetization of any kind of. legal tender money by private contract."— Democratic platform. .

The farmer often borrows 'inoue.v to s:«C Ms crops- out, the sraiB. denier is .1 heavy borrower to move the crops. The grain bustoess is such that -it needs a Inrpe amount of money only for a short time, -:uul the dealer -tlwret'oro Is often :i borrower. There is hardly a factory however prosperous, -that la not nt times u borrower. The farm Implement manufacturer works up material all wl'ii tcr lonjr but ilocs not sell. He often has thousniids of dollars worth of stock worked up. Ho borrows until sclliuR time comes. All these transactions depend' oi) credit anil 'credit dc- pouds on iloi-ng just what has boon agreed to. Mr. Brooks huows that a Tuition oi' roiHKlln'toa-s is mncle up of iudlvUlual rcpudiators.

And so as -a busi- moss- UKUI anil not -as -a Democrat he Is out -tcll'lnsr his fellow employes of t.he danger tlhut tlu-ea.tons. There Is no co- •ercion a.bout this -and there h'as been none on the part of the Panhandle railroad.' A great ma-uy Democrats h;ive seen the matter Ja its true light nncl have taken Uio same position Mr. Brooks has and they aro uot all employed on t'hc Panhandle railroatl. The Democratic vote for McKinley or Palmer will bo far larger in Log-iuisport off the roa<l tilian on it. A sound money mooting will be held next Wednesday evening nt the rink under the auspices of all t-he leading Democrats of Logansport. If these men are not co- evccd, is -it reasonable to believe that the railroad men are, especially when the authority for it conies from such an unreliable organ as Uhe Pharos? This coercion cry Is raised to rnls> load farmers. That Is its sole purpose: It is an attempt to array class against class, n dangerous thing to do. and"'.* very unpatriotic proceeding. The business of Miiis country is so toterdepcnd- en-t H'-lvait the farmer musit depend 001 the prosperity of the great mass of consumers for Ills prosperity and the consumers must depend upon the farmer. The railroad man supports Tils family by hauling the farmer's crops to market. He Is -really a farm hand as much OS llie fenfflst'cr Is -who tfauOles flic wagon part of the transaction. The railroad man oats the farmer's products.; .Ttoerc Is no antagonism of Interests. They are mutual and interdependent, -and the farmer should not be misled by those who would persuade -him otherwise. It is time thoughtful Democratic farmers were -awakening to the dangers of the situation and joining the Democrats of tihe towns • in the movement to avert them.

Samuel Slough died yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock nt the family residence at No.. 1109 North street after an Illness oC several months, aged 77 years. The deceased was born near Oarstowu, Pa., in. May 1S10 and re- inoyed to this State a.bout 45 years ago. He was first married .to Miss Sarah Wise of'Pennsylvania, and after her .death married Jlrs. Maria. Higgle. To iih'is- 'Union five children were born. They are, Mrs. Mary Mutcrspaugh, Mrs. Mallssu Martin, Nelson Stough, the Panhandle conductor, AI and Miss Etta Slough. For many years the deceased lived at Walton following his tVa.de, 'that of a brick layer, and was one of the most highly respected citizens in that comtntmtty. Seven years ago 'he and his family ireruoved to this city where lie -has -won many warm friends who will regret to hear of his death. The remains will 'be taken to Walton for burial tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Services will be held in the English Lutheran church. Interment will be had In the I. O. 0.

The corrosive power of pure water on new or unsealed boilers \vas well i!lus- •tioted iti'llie eity of Glusg-ow. when a new water supply was introduced from Loeh Katrine, one of the purest waters in, the .world which are .available for city consumption. The former supply had been poor and calcareous, and old boilers were .much coated with lime scale. To the dismay of the users, those who bad put in new boilers or new tubes found them rapidly corroding-, while the old scaled and coated boilers remained ns before; those, too. who had removed every possible trace of incrus- tatiou from their old boilers by mechanical or chemical means, intending thus.to g-et, as they expected, the full benefit of the pure water, were also badly troubled by corrosion; and even the old boilers, as the scale was grad- unJIy removed by the unvarying soft -and pure water from the lake, were more or less corroded wbcn no means were taken to prevent it. It was found, however, in this case, that introducing B little lime from time to time—enough to give the boilers a slight calcareous coating-—usually prevented the corrosive action of the water; then, again, in the course of time, the effect produced was that the lime, organic matter, and iron- oxide sldn, united in forming a protective oxidized surface which prevented further corrosion. coinage of silver Jinfl gold^at-'tfie pre^ : «nt legal ratio of 10 to 1."—Populist ' platform, 1802.

' ^ "Fatherland," a breezy, musical comedy drama of the Tyrol, partaking of the native simplicity and manners of the Tyrolese, and presented with spirit and completeness by an unusually good company of players, was ap- iplauded by a fair audience last night atjthe New Dolan. Karl Gardner, who makes a song popular by the mere singing of it, had the sympathy of the people.' r-His sweet voice and grace of movement are familiar.

MISPLACED PUNISHMENT. Angry Houtewlfe Beluborn Her Guest In- 8tt9ftd of Uer Hoaband. An exchange prints a story about Dr. Miller, nt one time a popular Cougre- gatioualist preacher in England. He had been holding services at a-vil- age in Yorkshire, and, a heavy rain having come on, had accepted an invitation to .pass thfe night at the house of one of the villagers. The good-hearted host, seeing the minister's clothing- drenched, brought out a suit of his pwn and sent his guest upstairs to put it on. The good man hod made the change and. was on his way back to the sitting- room when the woman of the house came out of another room holding in her hands the big fainily Bible, out of which the doctor was'to be invited to reSd-.J chapter before the family retired. ' ;_.;,-. • At the same time she was notin avery nmiable mood. Careful housewives are apt to be put out of. sorts by the advent of unexpected company. Seeing Dr. Miller in his borrowed garments she mistook him for her husband,, and as h<; passed in,front of• her she lifted the book and brought itdown pretty-smartly on his head. "There," she said, "take that for asking him to stay all night." EFFECTIVE MATCHMAKING. Simple and Direct Method Employed by the Ncz I'«rc« Indian*. Au old custom was revived by the Xez Perces Indians and their visitor* during the celebration on the last Fourth of July, says the Morning 1 Ore- goniau. The natives of the local tiibe are very wealthy •people, and there are designing mothers among the aborigines as well as in tie different classe» of civilized society. Tbe young bucks of the JCez Perces tribe are regarded somewhat like the scions of royalty In rontrimonial circles. The maidens frojn all visiting tribes were brought to Lapwai to find husbands. The customs of the tribes, which were revived for the occasion, were more effective than the Boston man's way. The marriageable maidens were by common accord quartered in a selected spot in the valley of the Lnpwai. At an appointed hour the young- men who •wanted wives to share their annuities, their homesteads and the affections of their hearts eppeared in procession on the hallowed camp ground. The hour was midnight, and the,scene was in a grove of trees made fragrant by the wild-Sowers, and every heart danced to the music of the rippling-waters. The young men marched forth, and none but candidates for matrimony joined the march. They were, dressed in their brightest colors, and each carried ft •white willow cane. As they opproa«hed the tents they chanted an Indian chorus that was as doleful as the song of the' owl, and kept time by beating 1 upon toe tents with their canes. The drumming was deafening to the distant spectator and must have been distracting- to the waiting maidens in tBe tents. At last the singing, and the drumming had the desired effect. The maidenn came forth, after a delay, just long- enoug-h. to satisfy that universal passion of the mind of a women to drive a lover mod with donbt. There were more men than, maidens. The former kept up tie march and tb* mu'sic without. The maidens counter- • marched on the line of the same circle, each selecting a husband from .the Hn«. The chosen ones hastened <o follow their brides awuy into the darkness. The unfortunate suitors were left to de« spair. '"-vT"."?!•'".'•^:v"\'.C"['. ."•"•'•'"; KIPLING'S SNAKE. ~* NURSING SENTIMENT.
