Bryan would nave prevented this as Jackson prevented a like nroject sixty year.* ago Bryan wculu L-uve inilsied on adhering to the money Of coi^tliutloo—jrold and silver. r '"*Tnerp i" no reason »by people disposed tojbe saving should not have hart ad much money to deposit in postal savings Danks under Bryan's administration as under McKlnley's, People would have gone on tolling aad producing to meet the needs of mankind. Honest men and irue Americans would have been called mi,o the service of the government and such corruptionIsts as Mark Hanna, Boss Platt, toe sugar king?, the railroad kings and the gold conspirators, would hare been defled and ihelr schemes of public plunder thwarted. But the battle is not over The boldness of theprlvilezed classes will yet brjcg ruia tc their cause. WHAT right either in justice or in law has the government to change the coin bonds, which the people .are obligated to pay, into gold bonds'? Whu orought about the condition whereby it is claimed that if the people see fit to pay their obligations in silver they will be guilty of dishonesty? To BTJILD and equip an electric railway from Logansport to Burlington will cost between 8150,000 and 1200,000, The rub comes in raising this sum of money. To raise this ium of money, have we twenty Indi- Tiduals who will subscribe $10,000 «»ch to the capital stock? Or have *e 200 citizens who will each sub- icrlbe for $1,000 of stock? WHAT IT MEANS. ITS a speech dellved before the chamber of deputies the other day, M, Mellne, the French premier, ei pressed the hope that the day woul jet come when bimetallism would triumph as a solution of the agrl cultural depression. Yet there are some people who In list that the adoption of the gol standard throughout the world is the only remedy for the fall in wages and the depression in agri culture. JACKSON warned his countrymen against the encroachments of th money power In his farewell ad dress to congress he urged the dis continuance of the use of paper mone; to far as practicable and that stive and gold be coined into money as rapidly as the business needs of th country required, He prophesied that the batiks would become : dangerous power in the politics o the country If permitted Co supply the money for the people. The plan of reforming th« currency proposed by Secretary Gage, who is connected with some of the largest banking In stitutlons of the country, was opposed by Jackson, and his reasons for op posing are as cogent now as they were then. Jackson Insisted that gold and illver alone are money under the coo- atltutioo; and the people are entitled to the use of silver and gold for purposes of trade. To substitute paper representatives of money issued either by oanks or from the treasury depart ment, deprives Individuals of their natural rights protected by the con •tltutlon. It Is in each case a prostitution of public credit; expelling coin to the amount of paper Injected into circulation,and in time draining those great reservoirs of private metallic wealth which form the only source of national strength In case of war with other nations. HAD Bryan been elected last fal there would have been no need for the postal savings bank agitation Under such a condition no one woulc have bad money to save.—Lafayette Courier Harken unto the words of the par rot! The parrot repeats the wail of the gold conspirators. Bryan's election would not have Injured the crops at home, Neither would bis election hive created a wheat shortage abroad. The railroads would not have closed their warehouses and refused to transport the surplus products of our farms to the seaboard. Our ships tbat sail the great, lakes would not have been anchored and left to rot. Had Bryan been elected wheat would be selling at present prices. The price of corn, oats, clover seed and hay would rule about as now. The truth Is that Mr. Bryan could not, If president, change natural laws. Neither can McElnley. There is one thing, however, that Bryan could have accomplished. He could have prevented the surrender of the government to the trusts and the gold conspirators. The new tariff law has given the trusts what they demanded In return for enormous contributions to the "sound money" campaign. The gold conspirators expect to secure it the coming session of congress the privilege of supplying the 'people with money. The purpose Is to wholly abandon silver aa a money neUl, hiTfl "gold" denominated in Dntie», I>d»on« and Pleanures of Thankt- Klving Day. Thanksgiving;! From basement to attio the word resounds. Were sounds ever sweetes than those made by happy children's voices? The tones proclaim the joys that be and joys that are to last throughout Thanksgiving day. \Ve watch their happy faces and listen to their merry voices Intermingling with mirthfulness. What does it matter if the curtains are awry, the legs of chairs where seats are wont to be, and pictvu-e books.forgotten, lie In all convenient places, and tents of rugs and tablespreads wherein the occupants are re-enacting the hairbreadth scenes of old? Now they are gathered around the glowing grate where mind pictures of the long ago are vividly portrayed, and from their countenances we infer that they are beholding the Northmen as they view from, Jifer the wonderful new world. ' ,d the Icelanders as they land upn:. .>ew England's shore in the year ..^0 and realize the privations which they endured, Mid, too, the sailing of the Santa Maria, grid Inter the Mayflower, laden with the Puritnn fathers, and see the landing at Plymouth Rock. Were there ever more interesting stories than those relating the incidents which nmke up the history of this our new world? And can lips other than those of the gray haired father or mother picture so cleurly those scenes? Nor do their joys lessen at sight of the Thanksgiving dinner, where epicurean skill appears to have reached its highest development. \Yhen the lateness of the hour compels them to don their white robes, we hear mingled petitions arid thanksgivings more fervent than usual, and when their eyes are closed in slumber our thanksgivings arise to God above for the preservation of our little ones. Thanksgiving to the housewife has a host of meanings. For several days turkeys, pumpkin pies and innumerable edibles have passed before her mind in stately procession. Cooked? Oh, no, waiting for her invitation to come, waiting for her busy brain to devise methods of procedure and her deft lingers to aid in the preparations, waiting for her zesthetie taste to approve or condemn and for her look of relief when at last the word "ready" is pronounced, waiting for her look of satisfaction us (he g-ufsrsgiifJiKrjiroiind the ample board while the thanksgivings of a year are concentrated into one grand thanksgiving. Until now she has si.virroly considered its import, for often the weight of our cares drag us to their level, hut when a respite comes \vo view thorn from, above and with ;t> sense of freedom wonder how we ever became enslaved, and so the days, weeks, months and years bring their burden of cures, and at the closing of each we bid them adieu, expecting to awake at their bidding on the morrow. Thanksgiving to the men of our cities and the country '"means not only a day of feasting and mirth, but a time to review in detail the blessings received during the past year. Oftentimes rich blessings are freely scattered in our path and we with averted eyes recognize them not. Search your homes, search carefully, lest you overlook the little blessings which, taken severally, appear very small, but when combined make your home comfortable and beautiful, and with the atmosphere of love enveloping it, make it the dearest spot on earth. Inhale the atmosphere until your very being is pervaded, until such a one, as pure as delicate, as invigorating as ethereal, and, withal as enduring, is shed abroad by you. Nor look with, disdain upon the clouds, for many a cloud hits a silvery lining. Look thoughtfully from the status which obscures your horizon to the high. Coating cirrus with tints #o fair. The shadows they cast over your way may prove to bo blessings ia disguise. Glance through your account books. Is the bonk largely your debtor? Are your storehouses lilled with grain ready for the market? If so, offer thanksgiving to him who gave you strength that you might prosper. Have you enabled some unfortunate one to rise above the difficulties which surround him? If so, give thanks. Thank God for the friends you have on earth. Thank God for the friends you have in heaven, the remembrance of whose love draws you Dearer that happy home where the atmosphere is never clouded and the sun never sets on Thanksgiving day. Thanksgivings In Europe. Thanksgiving day conies down to us from New England's earliest times, and so does the turkey. The pumpkin pie had its birth in Massachusetts and Connecticut, though cranberry sauce has a less ancient and honorable history. But Thanksgiving was not original in New England. Days set apart for giving thanks to the Almighty were known in Europe before the reformation and were in frequent use by Protestants afterward, specially in the church, of England, where they were a filed custom long before they were in the colonies—New York Wor'.d.

RAISING TURKEYS. Eggs Must Ue of One Date—1'oung Ponlt* Need Lots of Room. The turkeys roost out in trees the year through, aiui fsw are lost. In the spring the eggs are, gathered with great care, and each one is dated. Seventeen eggs of as nearly the same date as possible are placed under a hen, but when the first few have been hatched the mother wants to leave the nest and leave the other eggs to their fate. She is coaxed to return to resume her maternal duties, however, by dainty meals of dough. When the little turkeys, or poults, are a couple of days old, they are removed with their mother to a remote part of a field and placea in a triangular pen. Four broods are given a 20 acre field, and if more wore placed within such limits it would be regarded as dangerous to the health of the young ones. As a result ol this system, it takes considerable ground to-afford'space for 80 or 40 broods ; and the task of feeding them all means a three or four mile walfc For the first; four weeks the poults are fed on cornmeal and sour milk and are 'given sour milk tQ drin> ;- stead of watej. After that cracked r . isjuised with the meal, and the quantity is gradually In creased, until, at 8 or 10 weeks olcl, their food consists solely of 'cracked corn. In the latter part of October they are given all the corn they can eat. White flint corn, new and old mixed, is considered the best fattener, and, moreover, it gives the flesh the fine flavor that Thanksgiving epicures 'sigh for. Turkeys hatched in May weigh at Thanksgiving time 18 to 20 pounds for gobblers and 10 to II pounds for hens.— Washington Post.
