Entered at the Logansport, In<J..po8toffice as claBS mail matter, as provided by law, MA.IOU STEELE is quietly setting • p the plus for arenomination. The Major will depend largely oo Grant, HuntlngtoD and V abash counties for solid delegations. Cass, Miami and Howard may contribute some Totes to him, but the outlook now IB that he will not get many. could happen that would benefit the world so much as the restoration of bimetallism. If as predicted by Carlisle, the destruction of one form of metallic money is equivalent to the destruction of •ne-half the movable property of the world then the reverse pro- bltlon is true i. e. the restoration of »lWer would be equivalent to in- oreaslne the movable property of the world one-half. THE purpose of the gold con- iplrators is plainly discernible. They desire that all forms of money issued fcy the government shall be redeemed mnd cancelled. They desire that {Old bonds be sold and that the proceeds of such sale be used to redeem •ot only the greenbacks and treasury motes, but the silver certificates and •ilTer dollars as well. They desire tbat the right to Issue paper money te delegated exclusively to the mational banks and that, the backs fee obligated to redeem their paper issues in gold. Secretary Gage will outline the de- ilres of the gold conspirators in the recommendations he will shortly sub- nit to congress. It seems that the flountry is face to face with a contest like unto that which confronted tbe country during Jackson's administration. HON. JOHN W. KERN will address the Democrats of Shelby county on January 8th. In a letter accepting invitation to deliver an address, "Jackson's victory at New Orleans was glorious, but in importance not to be compared with his peaceful triumph over the combined forces of wealth years afterward when president of the United States. This lattercontest of Jackson's, however, while of great moment then, was gnly a little skirmish as compared with the mighty struggle which is just now ahead ol us between the people on the one hand and the trusts, combines, monopolies and •orporate cormorants on the other. The great Democracy, true to the teachings of Jackson, will stand by the people, their rights and interests. What we need is a revival of the Jackson spirit—the Jackson type of •ourage and aggressiveness all along •urline." THEHE has never been a time in this country when natural conditions were more favorable for prosperous times than right now. The country has been blest with enormous crops. Wheat, corn, oats and cotton, the f reat staples, are abundant. There has never been a greater foreign demand for our food products. Yet tbe price of all these products, except wheat rules extremely low. Even at present prices, the farmers of the Inited States will sell abroad this TCBF between $800,000,000 and II,•00,000,000 worth of products. The ihipment of their surplus products has given to our great transportation lines both, by water and rail all the traffic they are capable of handling. Natural conditions are therefore most encouraging. But the money kings are not satisfied. They doubt the government's ability to pay its debts. They want the goverment to •pecifically agree to pay its bonds io fold and Issue more of them. COMMENTING on the proposition to refund the nationial debt with gold fcond, the Indianapolis Sentinel recalls the fact that when President Cleveland wanted to sell some *62,•00,000 of bonds, in 1895, the syndicate offered over 116,000.000 more for them if they were made "gold" bonds than it they were issued as "coin" bonds under the existing law. This shows a difference In market value of over 25 per cent., or over 1200,000,000 on the more than $SOO, •00,000 of coin bonds outstanding. And yet it has been proposed to make this change without a cent of compensation to toe government. The time scheme was worked in the "public credit" act by which the »onds that were bought with depreciated greenbacks, and were payable In greenbacks, were made payable ID "coin" at a time when coin was at a premium, thereby donating millions •t dollars to the bondholders There will not beany repetition of that steal uleec it IB made openly, and in tbe krlgntect light that toll expocure KIDNEY TROUBLES Cured by Lydia E. Ptokbam's Vegetable Compound, Also Backache. I cannot speak too highly of Mrs. Pinkhain's Medicine, for it has done so much for me. I have been a great sufferer from Kidney trouble, pains in muscles, joints, back and shoulders; feet would swell. I also had womb troubles and leucorrhosa. After using Lydia E. Pinkham's Yeg-Ptable Compound, and Blood Purifier and Liver Pills, I felt like a new woman. My kidneys are now in ptrfect condition, and all my other troubles are cured.— MBS. MAGGIE POTTS, 324 Kauffman St., Philadelphia, Pa. Backache. My system was entirely run down, and 1 suffered with terrible backache in the small of my back and could hardly ttund upright. 1 -.vas more tired in the morning- than on retiring at nig-ht. I had no appetite. Since taking- Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I have gained fifteen pounds, and I look better than I ever looked before. I shall recommend it to all my friends, as it certainly is a wonderful medicine.—MRS. E. F. MORTOS, 1043 Hopkins St.. Cincinnati, Ohio. Kiclney Tremble. Before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, I had suffered many years with kidney trouble. The pains in my back and shoulders were terrible. My menstruation became irregular, and I was troubled, with leu- •eorrhcea. I was growing very weak. I had been to many physicians but received no benefit. I began the use of Mrs. Pinkham's medicine, and the first bottle relieved the pain in my back and regulated the menses. It is the best kind of medicine that I have evei taken, for it relieved the pain so quickly and cured the disease.—MBS. LILLIAN CEIPPEN, Box 77, St. Andrews Bay, Flu. can throw upon it. The people of this country Dave been robbed quite enough ucder the plea of honesty, The Gag Situation. The citizens of the gas belt have at last been aroused to the danger of a failure of tbe gas supply. Until now the adage, "waste not, want not," is one to which they have not adhered. Aa much natural gas has been wasted in the gas belt as has been consumed for domestic purposes. Gas has been given away in vast quantities as an inducement for the location of factories. No economy whatever has been practiced in its consumption and the cities ol the gas belt ate now confronted with tbe possibility of an early exhaustion o' the gas supply. The effort now being made to bus- band the supply is a good deal like locking the door after the horse is stolen. An economical use of gas from the time of its d scovery would have insured the prolongation o? the supply for many years. Jsow the oil kings have invaded the gas belt and the farmers who own the land find tbat they can secure much betier re- turis from leasing their lands to oil operators than to those who supply gas for the market. The oil operators threaten to obtain possession of the field and vast quantities of gas will be absolutely wasted. It is doubtful if the operations of the oil men can be checked as long as tbe farmers ara permited to control their own property. Doing Something For Posterity. Medical scientisrs begin to be seriously concerned over the survival and increase of the unfit among mankind. Civilized countries are full of lunatio asylums, hospitals and charity homes. These cake care of the feeble, the diseased, those unfit in every way to survive and propagate their kind. They have co care for the future, knowing chat whatever happens they will be provided for. There is therefore nothing to hinder them from marrying ea-ly and often and reproducing their kind in proportion. This they do. Here again modern medical and surgical science comes to the rescue and saves the lives of hundreds of thousands of the unfit to go and reproduce other hundreds of thousands of the same type. They do not care. On the other hand, the tendency among the intelligent, the ablebodied and the thrifty is to marry later and later in life in order that when they do have families they will be able to give these every advantage of birth and education. The consequence is that mankind are threatened with an overwhelming deluge of the unfit, the fit being smothered out by them. In order to prevent such a catastrophe Dr. R T. Rnlison believes that the law should take hold in earnest of the subject of regulating marriage. The marriage of the unfit should be prevented. His recommendation is: That a medical staff be appointed to examiaa all boys and girls from 12 to 15 years of ag8 relative to their physical condition and family history &nd that records be keps- Ha suggests three classes: (a> Those being physically and mentally sound, of good habit*: and having no history of hereditary disease for at least three preceding generations, (b) Those having the luce qualifications, but .with a family history extending to the grandparents only, (c) All those not included in classes a and b, So one shonld be allowed to marry ontside of the clan to -which he or she belongs.

Great Estates In America, The tendency of men who have made fortunes in trade to acquire great coon- try estates, in imitation of the European landlord, has been pronounced in the past 25 years. The general plan has been for the rich man to buy oat a dozen or 20 or 30 farmers and throw their lands all imo one baronial estate. Lawns are laid our, driveways constructed, artificial lakes made, and miles of sightly land- (-caps are the result. The former owners of the farms meanwhile drifs heaven knows where, to the factory, to the city or perhaps 1 or 2 out of 20 become tenant farmers for the great landlord and live and -,vork under his orders on tbe farms that they and their families have owned for generations. The land which formerly produced a living for from 20 to 30 families becomes under the greac estate system a mere playground for oue family. It is removed from the list of actually productive agricultural lands. It is a question well worthy of serious consideration whether these great estates of from 600 to 10,000 acres are a good thing for the economic development of this Union. Lawns there ought to be, beautiful landscapes there ought to be, but when 1,000 acres of laud is removed from productive agriculture it j means that the families who before got their living from that land are thrown upon the labor market, to swell the great army of the unemployed. It is certainly best for the prosperity and the moral and intellectual well being of our nation that there should be great numbers of small, highly cultivated, productive farms, owned and lived on by intelligent country families pos- sessiug all the comforts and many of the luxuries of life, than that there shonld be a few great estates with one rich, arrogant landlord and a few humble tenant farmers at his beck and call. It will be a sorry result of a century of republican institutions, so called, if we can show the world nothing better than an American peasant farmer class. anil Suits - OvercoaU1.25 to Boy's or Yoeof worth $7.50, large Pearl Button As to Reformers. We observe that the reformers are at it again, growling, gram bling and roaring about the wickedness of the rich, the corruption of the government, the poverty of the poor, the hollowness and falseness of society and the mammon •worship of the church. We have heard the same howl now for many years. We have not noticed that it ever did any human being a mite of good unless it was the howlers themselves, who perhaps get a mournful satisfaction out of easing their minds. What of it if it is all true? How is abusing tbe sinners going to reform theHi? Instead of hurling anathemas at the rich for their extravagance and selfishness why does not the calamity bowler study to show poor people how they, too, may become rich? Why does be not inform them iu economic .science and teach them to strengthen their wills and their intelligence so they can lift themselves out of poverty? The government is corrupt, is it? Why not then go among the voters and persuade them to elect the right men to office. They have this government wholly in their hands. It is plenty good enough for them, too, for they are the ones who make it. Our officers are elected, and they exactly represent the men who choose them. Suppose a lion stood in one reformer's path. Would he get it out of the way by sitting down and cursing it?

Murnry, tha novelist, is proposing: a national subscription to erect in London a statue in honor gf George Washington. Messrs. Bayard and Hay have both approved the scheme. The Daily Chronicle, however, questions whether the statue might not result in an embitterment of relations and says: "Like all near relatives England and America quarrel now and then. Perhaps some day it might occur to a boisterious jingo to make the statue of the Father of His People tha subject of an unedifyins demonstration." "Wall Street Blackballs Liudblom. New York, Nov. 29.—There was quite a flutter in Wall street when it was learned that Robert LindWom, the Chicago wheat operator, had been refused admission to the New York exchange. He was a pronounced silver man during the last presidential campaign, lending aid to Bryan both with influence and purse. This, his friends think, was largely responsible for his being turned down by the stock exchange. He will try again. It requires but one blackball to keep a man out of the two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets In the mouth and, mingling with the food, they constitute a perfect dl- gescive, absolutely safe for ihe most sensitive stomach. Taey digest the food before it has time to ferment, thus preventing tbe formation of gas and keeping the blood pure and free from poisonous products of fermented, half-digested food. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets make the complexion clear by keeping the blood pure. They Increase flesh by digesting flesh-forming foods. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the only remedy designed especially for the cure of stomach trouble and nothing else.
