An interesting article on Mexico ap- ears la t?» u inter Ocean ot the 14th rom the pen of William H. Sloan for many years a resident of Mexico. Of he wages there he says: "The daily wages of a skilled me- haniic is about $1 (51 cents In Amerian money. Under favorable circum- fcaaces he may get ?1.25 and I know of few, extra mca, who in government hops and In .railway service get ?1.50 about SO cesnts in- American money). Occasionally, where men go away from heir families, or the work may require peculiar skill, or the employers are unusually liberal, >a sligh-tly higher figure will be paid. But the average is. about ;i, and'the large majority of Mexican jlacksmlths, carpenters, tailors, and other artisans receive only 75'cents per day, or. 30 cents in American money.' In my'remalnl-ag flgures.'to avoid rep- otiMon, .1.will give the amounts in United 'States or "sound" money...A policeman gets 51 cents per day, a common laborer from 18 to 30 cents. Postal carriers get from $C to $15 per month. Clerks receive from $10 to ?20 per month. , •House rent-here for the poorest laborer is from ?1.HO to $3 -per month, gold, of course. He must live on beans: and corn cakes, often without a table to eat from, almost always with no bed for himself arid family except a. mat upon the floor, with no .furniture In the •one room of his house, except, perhaps a little-box that serves for a trunk. One suit of clothes for himself, and one for his wife, and a piece or a suit for each child, and of children there are usually a plenty. At night each one must sleep in the clothes worn during, the day, unless Indeed, fortune has been kinder than is usually the .case. "Of course/there are exceptions, and frugality, industry, and tidiness, backed by sobriety and diligence, have overcome even the curse of poverty., and the' family will be found in comparative comfort. .But the statements that are being published as to the Mexican laborer building htroself a home three clerks and less than <i load of documents.

He states that the sound' money Democrats' of Logansport, are loud in their praises of The Times for the bold stand it has taken on the money question, and very much regret "that their own county organ, which was a staunch defender of sound currency beforc-.the convention was held, did not have the courage to stand by M convictions. The professor Wmself, is an enthusiastic free silver main and thinks everybody else ought to be, but frankly.-adnilts that the free coinage men are nurttng their cause by mafclnpr too many wild claims. Professor Michael taught writing school in this county twenty years ago and is well known among the older Inhabitants. SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION.
