Then why-should it not raise tbe value of jjuid as much as it lowered tbe value of silver? "A comparison of prices, wuich Is the unly way to find out, saows that the value of gold baa risen largely as a matter of fact, for it wkes a larger quantity „. of eommocimeB in g en ' eral to buy a given quantity of gold. Biuietdlliats on their part will not hesitate to admit that as the closing of mints lowered tbe value of silver and raised the value of goU so the reopening of mints would lower the value of gold as well as raise the value of silver. "And they claim that this would be essentially just to creditors as well as a relief to debtors. And they claim that it would at the same time give a broader basis to credit and insure greater stability In the standard of value than either gold or silver monometallism possibly can."

[Special Correspondence.] NASHVILLE, Oct. 18.—Tennessee is a itate of tbe sturdiest democracy, yet it contains a principality—a principality ruled by the bluest blood in the vrorld, which does not, however, give offense to the sovereigns, for the blue blood flows in veins equine. Belle Meade is lead into the sales ring anything lem than the cream of the offerings. "See me er-comin suppin good corn- in," the paunchy, pawky black man says,- ..his face oozing good humor no less th'an horse sense. He is a feature of the place, one that no visitor can fail to remember. The owner and master of it himself has no greater pride in its glories than this ex-slave. - Bob was born in the old master's day. General W. G. Harding, dead this 20 y«ars, named and founded Belle Meade | and made it famous. The land has been in the same family since Tennessee was a state. Tbe modest, substantial Harding farmhouse is still i;tanding, kept and shown with as much of reverent pride as the ivy covered mausoleum \vhere old General Harding sleeps with I his familv about him. The estate is en- the principality, and the blood horse its ruler by right little less than divine. , - „...•„ ». Eight here it mav be in place to note tailed.

A blood ssrsr^r»r s ^ ™i??*-s---:=• HON. CHARLES L. HBNRT, who now represents the Anderson district In congress, announces that he will not be a candidate for re-election. He has enough. Like the rest of the Indiana congressmen he has had a great deal of trouble in parceling out the federal patronage to the "lean and hungry shoatn." Where he has made one happy, there are a dozen others whose hopes have been blasted. We surmise that Congressman Steele, of this district, will have some trouble In securing a renomination . He has done some artful dodging, but a good many promises are yet unfulfilled. THE English people are as badly divided on the silver question as the people of this country. The laboring people and the agricultural classes are well nigh unanimously in favor of the restoration of silver coinage. The bankers and capitalists favor the perpetuation of the single gold standard. They seek to make gold the only standard of value throughout the civilized world. But the de- monetization of silver has proven just as injurious to the laboring and producing classes of England as it has to the same classes in the 'United States. France stands ready to join the United States in reopening the mints to silver coinage. Nearly all her leading financiers favor the restoration of the double standard. Tne short crops In Europe have only Intensified the demand of uLe labor- Ing classes for the restoration of sil The Ki-ii of Buttermilk. That great and good newspaper the | crosses required by the sfcudbooks. Blood St Louis Globe-Democrat, is authority' for the statement that a man can now go into a saloon anywhere and. order a driuk of buttermilk "without being twitted about it." A buttermilk fad Ojj'pealrs to have started in the cities of the Union during the past summer, and it shows no sign of abatement. Fiery drinks, cocktails, mint juleps, wine, even beer, those containing alcohol in any form, have been discarded in favor of the gently stimulating buttermilk, a driuk pronounced by physicians to be productive of good digestion and good complexions. Dr. Waldo Briggs, a St. Louis physician who was interviewed, says that after surgical operations a mixture of lime water and sweet milk has been usually given to persons suffering from nausea. Now, however, it has been found that just plain buttermilk is much superior. It allays feverishness and irritation and has a beneficial effect on those suffering from various internal troubles. Here seems to be a drink helpful in dyspepsia and many human ailments, and all this time it has been wasted on pigs. It often takes man a long time to find out what is good for him. An odd feature of the new fad is that the principal place where buttermilk is sold seems to be the beer saloons and ginshops. Of course if the keepers of those shops can make as good profit from buttermilk as from alcoholic drinks they will be glad to keep it. It is all one to them what they sell in tho drinking line. So popular has this bev erage become that it has taken in great measure the place of the perennial lem on soda. The country districts around St. Louis have not been able to supply the demand for this drink. It is shipped nearly 100 miles into the city. The next summer will probably find buttermilk to be quite as valuable as sweet milk to dairymen, aud they should make preparations accordingly. Tho wine consumption of the Unitec States has fallen off in the past year. The consumption of whisky as a drink began to decline some years ago. Perhaps the day of crude, fiery beverages is over and the race is becoming refined to that point where it will indulge in nothing worse than a buttermilk drunk. typically ically hospitable. Six days of the week IROQUOIS, SOW XISfcrfZK TEARS OLD. ia, indeed, in a strict sense a synonym for thoroughbred, a shade more exclusive and f arreaching in significance. Blood horses, and blood horses only, hold court at Belle Meade. True, there is some small matter of Shetland ponies, a few hungers, hacks, and so on, within its limits, but the place's name and fame and sway over men's minds are due to the kings of the course—past, present and prospective. At the top of the bead roll is Iroquois, now 19 years old, yet valued at $150,000. The reason why, he is the one American stallion who ever went over the sea and set to his own and his country's credit three of England's classic races within a single year. He won the Derby, the St. Leger, the Two Thousand Guineas for his then ovrner, Pierre Lorillard of New it pleases him to welcome the world and his wife within his princely demesne. Upon the seventh the gates are shut hard and fast, so hard and fast neither favor nor friendship suffices to open them to a sightseer. This is partly from conscience. The general, although a breeder of race horses, is a stanch and orthodox Methodist Partly also out of respect for his wife's memory. She was throughout her life a strenuous Sabbath keeper. Being dead, her works do fol low her, A Fine Estate. Thirty-five miles of stone fences, laid in mortar and costing above §60,000, in- close the domaiji and crisscross some part of it. Around the deer park the wall is supplemented with tall iron railing. Otherwise the 500 deer would soon be scattered all over the countryside. The creatures have the run of several hundred acres, all in virgin forest. The trees have been lopped, tbe undergrowth cut away. Smooth, fine turf covers the most part of the earth. In the spring it is thickly starred with flowers — anemones, little pale blue sweethearts, spring beauties, harebells and scentless wild violets. In the spring, too, the scattered locust trees and springing white clover perfume the air until Eichland creek valley is sweet as paradise.

That is very much, but not quite then, toward sunset, hearing the mated * birds sing and watching a deer drive. so much as the prepotency of his blood. Iroquois' colts and fillies have a knack of showing the way home almost every year that shines. Naturally they are in great- demand as yearlings: Men who AJIBKICANS have great cause for tbe belief that theirs Is the best land on earth. From the abundance of our fields, our mines and our workshops we are supplying the old and thickly populated countries of the Old World with the necessities of modern life. Our exports of wheat. of cotton, of corn, of pork £ind of beef are enormous. This we are doing when our government is but little more than a century old. No land on earth has been developed so rapidly and none is blessed with such wonderful resources. The population of our country is yet small compared with the nations of the Old World. It IB growing with wonderful rapidity and Its Inhabitants are the most progressive people on earth. There Is one danger, however, that rises above the horizon. It is the rapid concentration of wealth. The otatesman who can provide a remedy for this expanding evil should be encouraged by tne people. The history of the world proves that the concentration of wealth has ruined many nations. Trusts that destroy legitimate competition In trade and rob the people of a portion of their daily earnings should be destroyed. They are leeches that sucfc the life blood from the producers of our country. The fortunes of the fabulously rich should also be taxed as a means of •verting the concentration of weal th. To attain the greatness desi red by Jefferson, this country must not become one la which, a few people shall be fabulously rich and the many extremely poor. How can the concentration of wealth be checked? Great Britain made a serious diplomatic mistake in more ways than one in refusing to join Japan and Kussia in considering with the United States the Bering seal question. The conference will undoubtedly establish a most, cordial feeling among the three nations taking part in it, and that feeling will not do Great Britain any good. Japan, Russia and tbe United States united in the thorough good understanding which will result from the seal conference will be apt to stand by one another as against England or any other country. The conference fixes fast the friendship for one another of threo nations, and England is not in it- One result of the disastrous engineers' strike in England will be the delaying for nearly a year of the completion of the new White Star st«arner Oceanic. This great ship's hull lies in the water at Belfast, waiting for her engineering machinery. The Oceanic is the longest vessel ever launched. She is considerably more than one-eighth of a mile in length and nearly as long as three city blocks. The length of the Great Eastern •was 680 feet That of the Oceanic is 704 feet, and, unlike the Great East- em, she will be able to enter the harbors of American ports. Plainly Stated. The following, taken from an editorial in the Chicago Chronicle, pre- tenta the arguments of the free coinage advocates about as forcibly as it can be put: "Why did sllTer fall when mints were closed against it? Bw»nw the closing of the mints against It diminished the demand for It. It looks as if the one word "money," money from the word go, straight through, would explain the escape from Havana of Evangeliua Cisneros, without the invention of a romantic tale of opiuniized candy and bottles of acid to eat away iron bars. Bismarck is a very great man. When he wishes to characterize any story as the most colossal falsehood human imagination is capable of framing, he ears the author of it "lies like a telegram." risk their thousands upon a bit of horseflesh like to have the glorious uncertainties of racing tempered somewhat by a, winning pedigree. A big, handsome dark chestnut, standing well over 16 hands, clean limbed, powerful almost to a fault,' the son of Bonnie Scotland and Maggie B B looks tbe king he is, king of racing sires. He has a fine head, with a white star in'the forehead, a mane like floss silk and brilliant, kindly eyes. Under j tho satiny skin you note the play of ' splendid muscles. He -gets exercise in plenty, albeit he is nowadays never shod. A Haciujr Idol. Luke Blackburn, sire of Proctor Knott, the unbeaten Tremont, the veteran Great Tom, Inspector B, imported Loyalist, come a very little farther down the roll. Each had his roomy stable, his separate paddock, bis fond and faithful special black groom. Here, too, you find Longstreet, not so long ago idol of the New York racing public. One cannot doubt that who recalls the triumphant roar which greeted his victory over Tenny in the famous match race at Morris park. His Belle Meade home holds souvenirs of a victory even more momentous, the plates he wore upon the day that he outran Salvator and Proctor Knott, the phenomena of their year. Always a sightly animal, he has grown into a marvelously handsome one, "I looks ev'y year fer his colts ter gin us er worl beater," the groom says, patting a dark glossy neck, as he puts due measure of oats within the clean manger. There is good ground for the expectation. The severest critic of conformation and pedigree can pick precious few flaws in this famous and fettlesome Bon of Longfellovr. Belle Meade is well named. No more beautiful meadows ever laughed in sunshine or swathed them in evanescent southern snow than these which lie either hand of Bichland creek. A clear creek it is, sparkling and dancing along to join the placid Cumberland a few miles farther away. Gentle hills guard the meadow lands and accent their fertile fairness. There are 5,500 acres in this domain and almost every one of them susceptible of the highest cultivation. A good few acres are cultivated, but more lie in grass. For the most part the pastures are of hlwe grass, which grows here even more luxuriantly than in Kentucky's famous blue grass country. Besides, it reaches grazing height a month earlier and grows a month But •Tldently It It increased the demand England -withdrawing from the Bering eeal conference in deference to the •wish of.

In spite_of winter feeding the deer are still as wild as in their native haunts. At tbe first sight or sound of anything human they are up and away like scudding clouds in a stiff sou'wester. Autumns and winters a few are shot for tbe table. Otherwise they live and thrive unmolested. They browse and rest in the deepest, shadiest, wildest spots. From thence Uncle Bob, with half a dozen mounted assistants, routs them out and heads them toward tbe roads, whore the car riages stand in wait. Something piteous as well as picturesque inheres in the lithe, leaping red brown figures which come like the wind and vanish like the shadows of a dream. As they whisk past the general gives his hunting halloo and sets them in wilder flight. "That was not a good drive, Bob. Hardly half a one, in fact," be says to the sable huntsman, who grins and returns: "No. sub, I knows dat. I bad er big bunch fust off, but dey squandered right scan'lous on de hill yonder. I done my best, but deers, dey kin run." Uncle Bob has always a ready answer. When Mrs. Cleveland was at Belle Meade, it fell to his lot to show her Iroquois. "How proud and fine he looks! It must be because he knows he has Mich good blood, "said the lady. "Ob, DO. mistiss," said Uncle Bob. "Dat hawse is proud case he knows who's er-lookii-g at him." Richard Cfoke.r'n Intercut.

At milking time they are a sight to see. Each has her stall, the stalls running around three sides of a great square. As soon, as two are milked clean they are turned out and sent a.way together to the pasture. Five black fellows, brawny .and smiling, do the milking. Two, the king pins among them, can play tunes with the white streams upon the bottoms of the big tin pails and will render you "Dixie" or "Yankee Doodle," according to preference. The milk is set in open cans with running spring water about them. 1 When the cream rises, it is skimmed and churned by mule power in big barrel churns.
