"XLe Bepu-bllcan parry is unreservedly far'sound money- It; caused the enactment of tlic law providing for the resunnption of specie payments in 3S79; since theji every dollar has been ns good as gold. "'We are unalterably opposed to every measure calcnlutod to debase our currency or impair tho credit of our.coun- \ry. We are therefore opposed to tlio free coinage of silver except by International asi-ecment with- the leading commercial.- nations of tlic world, which we pledge onrselveis to promote, and- until then sut'h gold atnudnrd must be pre- -eerved.. . .. : :.' "All our.silver and paper currency must be maintained' «t .parity with gold, nnd we favor all measures de- slgued to maintmln Inviolably the obll- • gntlons-of.ll*eUnl.te<l States and all our money,. whether coin or paper, at the presenrt stnndard, the standard of. the t enllgbtened nations of tbe earth.' 1 •Money-Is a medium of exchange. It slwuld be sound and worth Its .full value. 1 may take a cheap dollar from you knowing that- some one else will take- R from me for a dollar. But wueu a panic comes and money is needed most thore is a.lack of confidence and cheap money drops to Its actual value, and whoever happens to liave It is the loser. A thousand dollar debt payable to gold means a two thousand dollar debt with free silver, for -it will take two silver dollars to,buy a. gold dollar. Will your wages be doubled, do you think, OT Will your crops s<?ll In England for twice as ranch so that you can pay this double debt easier? Whatever the causes of the depreciation of stiver, the only proper coinage nt the present.time Is at the actual ra.tio 32 to 1. Anything else means legislation for the benefit of the mine owners. Thjere Is no reason in the world why the man, who works a day aad earns two dollars should not receive Iris pay In money worth its full value at any time and in any country. Make business and there will be plen- tj-'of money to ca-rrj' it on. Make proflt- atole employment for labor nnd them will be plenty of .cash to meet the pay roll. What the country needs Is not a change of money, the onedlum of exchange, but a restoration, of confidence so that business will pick up.

Some time, this' spring—nobody has yet been able to. fix .the clnte—John Moran, lumberman, o£ Ashland, Me., uwt a bear in the" wcxxls nnd held a ghort conference.with the same. Along in April,, when the maple sap had .gone olofti to make ne.w summer suits for the trees nnd the bluebirds were taking sky baths to put fresh tints on their wings, Moron WHS going into 'the woods io etoro away his sugar troughs. He .was a mile or 89. from 'tome, jogging o^orig with his nx;over, his shoiilde/andMiis dinner pail dangling from the ax'handle, when a sharp turn in the path brought him 'up against a great hemlock tree which tn« Mornn was -feeling uncommonly well that morning, and, not wishing to make a wide detour around the tree, he put his hand, on top of the rough boj-k and m'ndo4eady;.for a high vault. With a caution born of experience, lie looked to. sec where he would land, nnd, as his head peered above the log, something heavy ami hairy shot up from the other side and hit him squarely across the ear. As soon as he had collected his wits enough to look about him, he foun<Lhfi was under a small Fpruce tree- two rods back from the log, and saw bis dinner, consisting of fresh roast port and doughnuts, scattered about on the-flfead leaves in a way (lint mnde him feel sad. Kubbing his eyes, he gave another look, nod saw a large bear sitting up against the side of the log and overhauling his dinner with the air of an epicure. With his right paw the bear held up one of Moron's doughnuts to his eves, and with its left paw it was gathering in all of the roast pork in sight. Mornn'a only weapon was a light, sharp ux, with a tough osh| handle. Armed with this ho approached' the bear boldly, and did not stop until just outside pnw range. Then he made several swift passes with his ax to learn how many boxing lessons the bear had taken, and was not over- plensed to find that he had met a woodland boxer of great promise.. Every time he tried a blow with the edge of the nx the bear countered on tlic. side or handle nnd avoided a serious wound. •Eventually he struck with the flat of the nx, nnd was plensed to see the bear cut its paw half oft in the counter. The bear'hit so hard that it [might, have cut its own head oft if it hod not ducked adroitly at the moment; death was imminent. Moran's next blow was given with the force of a catapult,,nnd was : aimcd straight for the bear's skull. With a .left-upper cut the bear not only diverted the ov, b'ut pulled it froffl'-hia hands arid sent it flying far Mlo'the woods. It was now a ina-n against a; lame bear, nnd Moran knew tfiat the odds were all in favor of thef .bear. While Moran was feeling.in his pockets for B jackknife the bear again applied the.doughnut to its eye and examined its maimed paw. j '•Moran saw it was of no use tfa.flgllt such a cold-blooded monster jvjth.a jackknife. So -be; went around -the tree and started for his sap- camp,; which was only 20 or 30 rods beyond. He was pleased to see-the-bear, following, him at a distance; ari'd'fairly shouted with glee when be ; reached;the camp and found his two-edged wood ax hanging nbove the bunk:. In/a.few minutes he tad stripped torbis trousers and. undershirt, and, .swinging hie ax, aloft, he made ft dnsh far : the enemy.' The beor ducked and jumped.ahead, passing under 'Moran's rirm and facing- about for the'next ploy; 1 Two quick feints were parried!.with professional skill, and then.came:a sweeping blow btraigbt down, fijorn.abpve. The. bear held out its well foot,' and the ox-handle, drovc.it nearly "to the ground, Lean- Ing forward,' the 1 bear push'ed up on the handle, nnd ;; th6-upper edge, glancing from ita-Hxvthr entered the flesh that held th'e-bear's! nose to its upper jaw, cutting -cords rind -tendons until the keen blade wnshjdden in the fur. Mornn hardly. lcno,ws. what happened «ext. He hcar.d the.bsnr growl !n pain, nnd saw the 'skin'"on the front of the head furl up and roll bock, like;the hood of an •dvereon.tC 1 '. .Then a bear's head, bony, skinless,.-; and :griun,lng, emerged from the-moss O .f hair,-andth> bear was after ,Moran baldheadcd. It was a long, hard run ovcr't'h'e w^ndf alia, through the swamp*, and'up and/down hill. Every time Maran looked vbock he saw tlmt-; grfnnlng skull, and; the terror put wings on-.his feet as he.fled . '. ' ' ._.^J»1— 1.—.f,4-* BERLIN'S NEW SEWAGE SYSTEM. Tho City Rani Seven I.»r)to Sewage FBrnw at a. Profit* Berlin has'dealt successfully with the drainage question. Until . about n quarter of a century r.go the disposal of Eew-tisje was effected in primitive fashion 1 open drain courses, badly built and with inadequate'' fall, ran through many of the streets, discharging finally into t.he River Spree, for whose condition contamination would be fur too mild a word. A commission wns appointed, which, after visiting various countries/especially England, with the view ot practically studying different systems, reported in favor of sewage Irrigation on land at n distance from the city. The flatness of the plain, on which- Berlin is built would not allow •of any gravitation scheme, and consequently-it was found necessary to ndopt Btoam pumping. Tor the same reason the sewage could not aH be collected at one spot, and it was therefore decided to divide the city into 12 draln- n^e areas. The ground at the Bevem sewage 'forms was wcil suited for the .purpose, .consisting only of gaudy wastes, then growing only stunted firs and birches, but now converted into fertile -fields: • The total area, of the hind which- could be devoted to sewage irrigation ifiB2,500 acres; only about 11,0.00 acres are at present needed. Tbe following extract is from Dr. Legffe's account of these Berlin farms: "No deleterious effect has been noticed on the health'of those living on tbe sew- nge farms;- and, indeed, at some of them, a« at Blankenburg nnd Malchow, the city.hns built various hospitals for. convalescents, for consumptives, nn;l for women recovering after child-bed, nnd Uie patients seem to thrive in them as well'as"they would anywhere else." •The question, whether the germs of typhoid fever and cholera pass throng;!) the.soM into Hie drainage water has na t- uvjilly .-formed a subject of inquiry, but many bacteriological examinntior.K conducted specially with the view of L'lenriTifr'up'tiiis point, have ansivorcd the question''hi the negative. Until 1SU2 the laborers working on the sewage farms were remarkably free from . tvphoid feveiv although in 1S80 Berlin, itself,was vi.sted by a severe epi- r'.cmic; .in, 1802 a few cases occurred naion'g some, farm wdtkers, who were alleged''to have drunk largely of the effluent- from -the farm, but in these •instances otlier possible sources of infection could .not be excluded. It is satisfactory to note thnt, notwithstanding- the enormous cost of working these Berlin .sewage farms, the «c.\-- peni&s have;'in most years, been cov- 'ered by ; the' sale of the produce, and in one-year (1SS9) the surplus amounted i<7 tt'11.511.—-London Health News.

V',''-:- •' • ' Any government capabls of annually assimilating half a million foreigners, many of whom have come from the dregs of European countries, should in the course of a few years digest 2CO,- 000 Indians. What prevents? We answer, methods;' nothing- but methods. Use the Indian method of isolation and segregation with the immigrant, and the American nation will be destroyed in a decade. Use the immigrant method of distribution, association and opportunity with the Indian, and a decade need not pass until they become a real part of our country's life-blood. The Indian has the capacity to meet the issues of civilized life nt once. All Indian youth may readily be prepared to enter the common schools of the country by two or three years' 'coarse in government schools established for the special purpose of bringing them to this condition of fitness; and having once entered the public schools the way is open, for them to remain and go np head. Such schools and all our higher schools are now nnd always have been open to the Indians. Harvard and Dartmouth .colleges were started in the interests of Indian education. The door of education lias never been closed to the Indian. The whole 40,000 or 50,000 Indian youth may now, U they will, distribute .themselves among the schools of the country. There need not be another schoolhouse built for exclusive Indian education. Pennsylvania has about 22.000 schools, and there are about 250,000 schools in the United States. If all the Indian, youth in the country were distributed among the schools of Pennsylvania there would not be two Indian pupils for each school. If distributed among the schools of the country there would not be an Indian for each six schools. In either case the process would accomplish the civilization of the Indian a liundred times faster than government or mission schools or both, for the reason that he is tra.ined by daily contact with the very conditions and individuals that later, as a man, he will "have to compete with. We do tie Indian no kindness by holding him away from this competition, for it is thia very experience that Is to develop him. Without it we shall never accomplish the emancipation of the Indian.— Euth Shaffner, in Cha.utnuquan. WHERE THE WHITE CITY STOOD. K.w But Few V«tl B « of tli. Great F»lr Remain. The world's fair buildings were erected, as everybody knows, upon a tract of land belonging to the South park system of Chicago, and several years sacrifice of an important pleasure ground was made for the glory of n fix-months' show. The park was turned over to the exposition company some two years before the White City opened it« gates to the world, snd after the gate* were closed it fell into the hands of contractors who had undertaken to remove the building. After two years and a half of work the buildings are ot last cleared away (excepting the two or three that are to be preserved), and the grounds have just been restored to the park commission. It now becomes the task of that body io make a park indeed out of what is at present a mere mockery of the name. It will take two or three years, but we shall have in the end a park much finer than the one that -was destroyed. Meanwhile it Is Interesting to note the way in which relics of the fair have been scattered over the country. In many casea whole buildings have found new sites and new uses. The Wisconsin building has become a club house in Kansas City, while the building of the English government has found ft place among the" private residences of that city. Other buildings .have gone to Springfield, UK, and elsewhere. As for the smaller structures— the ticket- booth and toy bouses of-tiie foreign villages on the Midway Plaisnnce— they are dotted all over Chicago nnd its suburbs, and find uses that range all the way from those of real estate office^ those of summer-house on the lawn.
