It is a pretty well established fact tbat the Australian crop a failure and tbat the outcome of tbe crop in India and Argentina is doubtful., So country outside of North America produced an average crop of wheat last year. It is known, too, that the supply of old wheat was virtually exhausted before tbe beginning of last year's harvest. The re- ceot wheat deal in Chicago is suggestive of what may be expected in tbe future. It is a fair assumption g all tbis wheat have done eo with tbeir ejes wide open. They are acknowledged as good merchants. They have certainly not invested so many millions of dollars for the purpose of having a round lot of wheat merely look at.

I have reason to think that I would not be here now if it had not been for Lydia E. Pinkhams Vegetable Compound. It cured me of a fibroid tumor in my womb. Doctors could do nothing forme, and they could not cure me at the hospital. I will tell you about it: I had been in my usual health, but had worked quite hard. When my monthly period came on, I flowed very badly. The doctor gave me medicine, but it did me no good. He said the flow must be stopped if possible, and he must find the cause of -my trouble. Upon examination, he found there was a Fibroid Tumor in my womb, and pave me treatment without any benefit whatever. About that time a lady called on me, and recommended Lydia E. Pinkham/s Vegetable Compound, said she owed her life to it. I said I would try it, and did. Soon after the flow became more natural and regular. I still continued taking- the Compound for some time. Then the doctor made an examination again, and found everything all right. The tumor had passed away and that dull ache was gone.—Mas. B. A.

The country may have arrived at the conclusion that McKlnley Is a good man, but before the close of another year there will be Tew to maintain that Tie IB either a wise man or a great man. Neither In strength of character nor In natural attainments is he . the equal of either Harrison or Cleveland. This will be demonstrated very soon. the The ntwat iSituntion. There In every prospect that dispatch says that the feeling among members of congress is almost unanimously opposed to such a scheme. Ia the first place It la . urged that the •urn necessary to lie raised would be nearly twenty times $150,000,000, whlcb equals 13,000,000,000, snd the annual interest upon that at 3 per cent would be I90,000 : 000, more than balf as much as the present pension roll. In the second place, many -people we so improvident that it would be only a few years before halt the pensioners would be back again appealing to congress for aid. The members of the committees on pen- aions say that the scheme Is preposterous. THE Chicago Times-Herald has long been recognized as a McKinley worshipper. It perhaps carries its devotion too far when it says: President McKlnley has put something loto Uocle Sam's stocking which hasn't been there before in re cent years—» businesslike, patriotic and economical administration. This is a reflection on the ad minis- trallons of Benjamin Harrison and Qrover Cleveland. The inference is plain that their administrations were neither businesslike, patriotic nor economical. We see no justice in the claim. We cannot see that from either standpoint, McKinley's administration Is any better than that of his predecessors. It may be business-life to place such corporation lawyers as McKenna on the Supreme bench or Paxson on the ioter- •tate-commerce commission. The common people will feel that their interests would be better subserved if the corporations had not been per mitted to name these officials Nothing yet has developed which •hows that McKinley's admlnlstra turn Is either more patriotic or more economical than that of his predeces •or«.

In Th» Cosmopolitan Magazine Mr. Harry Thnrston Peck describes at some length tbe ideal American newspaper, one which he hopes will after awhile be the typo of a real journal. He believes there is a place in the great American sine* for a,newspaper that will neither stoop to "fake" story making, purposes of personal revenge for it; editor nor abuse of political opponents simply be- cau.se they are political opponents. There are newspapers already of the kind which Mr. Peck describes, as we flatter ourselves, but they ought to be more numerous, especially in the great cities. Ii is there tbat the journals are most barbarous and uncivilized. The demand for The civilized newspaper is growing. Mr. Peck says: Our country ha-s today what ir. had not SO yours ;ijjo, a very large and very influential class of trained and Thoroughly intelligent men, who are not to be influenced by cheap jokes and tawdry rhetoric and big black scare- headM. And it is thi-.se men for whom some day or other there will be eHtub'ishod a journal that riha!l be national, not local: a journal that shall stand .-side by side with the existing ones, performing faithfully llie task which they have failed to undertake. It, will be a journal who=e pages shall be neither dull on the out hand nor vulgar on the olher. It will bo courteous to its opponents, setting forth^ their arguments strongly and fairly, and answering them rationally, crisply and convincingly. If it makes mistakes, it will correct them gladly and thus win the confidence of even the men who reject its views. It will have a lifrht touch for lighter themes, but with the fire of earnest conviction gloving through it all; with an American sense of humor and an equally American sense of decency and propriety and fair play, and it will in the end possess an influence that shall surpass the influence of presidents and cabinets in that ic will appeal to right reason and truth and elemental justice. And the. exceptional majj whoso fortune it sliall be to edit and direct i c will become in- the nation n force for good such us it is seldom (.'ranted any on* to wield. Postofflcc Savings Banks. It is reasonably sure that the post- office savings bank law now before congress will be pnshed throogh either to passage or defeat during the present session. The bill provides that certain postoffices, to be designated in convenient localities by the postmaster general, shall serve as banks of deposit for small savings. Sums as small as $1 or less may be pnc into the postoffice savings bank, and the depositor shall receive interest at the rate of 33-o per cent a year. No amount greater than $300 may be placed in the postal bank in one year,and after $1,000 shall hava been deposited by one person interest shall ueuse on subsequent sums put in. Women with trifling sums of money, children and those who work for the smallest wages will thus have a convenient and safe place in which to deposit their precious savings. The government bank will never break or cheat them. The national treasury would thus have at its disposal at all times a suni largo enough to obviate the necessity of borrowing money ;tt a high rate of interest from great syndicates of capitalists. The law allows the government to invest the people's savings in state, county and municipal bonds and to use the money itself and issue bonds therefor. Great Britain and Canada already have postal savings banks, and they are very successful. They are a great .nceutive to poor people to save money, as they naturally would be. It has been found, too, that they do uoc interfere with regular savings buuks^ Edward Everett Hale is quoted it saying that for all ordinary purposes a vocabulary of HOO words is quite enough.

I asked Senator W. E. Chandler for a forecast of the legislation at the coining session of congress, wrir-es a correspondent of the New York World. He replied: "It is my impression that the session. need not be long and may, in a certaia sense, be devoid of highly important incidents. I place first the question of Cuba; second, Hawaii and its annexation. On both of these subjects I hope for action. Next comes the discussion of the inoneyquestion. It cannot well be avoided, but upon it I expect no action. "There will be discussion of .trusts, especially ia connection with pooling by interstate railroads, on which I do not really expect there will be any action. I do not see in any one of these subjects to be discussed without action or to be discussed and acted upon the elements of a long session. If, therefore, the appropriation bills pass the house promptly, I look for a short and uneventful congress.'' "The other important feature that you anticipate possible action upon in congress is the monetary question. What are your -views concerning it?" I inquired. "Believing 5n ' the supreme importance of a decision by the nations of the world of the question, What is to be in the future our metallic money? it is difficult for me to take mnch interest ia any subsidiary or incidental plans concerning the currency. Until we know whether there is to be a foundation on both sides under the building, or whether it is to be built with a foundation on one side only, discussions about the kind of superstructure that is to be built are of little importance. I have no idea that the world is to be carried permanently to the gold standard and feel sure that bimetallism will eventually prevail. Until this is reached I am inclined to think that we had better let alone onr own present national currency- "Dealing with the exact situation it is apparent that no currency legislation whatever can pass- both houses of congress. If an attempt is made to pass such legislation, it is quite likely to be turned into a free coinage law in the senate. Nothing is to be gained before the people by taking up this question. It is true that this is a country of free opinion and free expression, and thera is no. objection to having the self constituted monetary commission, so called, and Secretary Gage and President McKinley express their views as to the fu- ttire policy, yet any attempt at legislation will not only disturb business, but hinder such arriving prosperity -as we are supposed to now enjoy. Auy demand for the withdrawal of. the greenback circulation under present conditions is mere folly. Theoretically the government should not issue demand notes as money. Practically the 1846,000,000 not outstanding do no barm, and it is unwise to keep agitating the subject of their withdrawal." What is your opinion as to thy strength of the silver question in tbe country at the present time?" "I adhere to the opinion that four- fifths of the American people are in favor of bimetallism—that is, the use of both gold and silver equally as the money of final redemption. To speak generally, they are in favor of a return to the monetary condition prevailing in the world prior to 1873." "What are your anticipations of leg,- islatiou regarding trusts and railroad combinations?" "There is great difficulty in dealing with trusts in general by act of congress, owing to the doubt about the jurisdiction. The states possess ample power to suppress trusts and combinations La restraint of trade. With this doubt about the jurisdiction attempts to effectually oppose trusts and combinations by laws of congress are of doubtful value, yec I think congress ought to do all it can. "There is one trust, however, over which congress has complete jurisdiction. That is the combination of tbe interstate railroads. These roads now maintain in existence a gigantic combination of 31 roads, with a capital of $2,500,000,000, virtually controlling all the railroads in the United States, with a capitalization of $11,000,000,000. Congress ought first to attack and destroy that trust. If it cannot do that, which it is cl' \rlj within onr jurisdiction to do, it cannot hope to suppress trusts over which its jurisdiction is doubtful. "Competition in all trade in the United States will cease to exist if the railroads of the country are to be allowed to do business in one grand combination, with all competition snp- p'ressed for their benefit. "It is stated, senator, by good lawyers that it is impossible to seriously attack trusts without a change in the constitution. Do you agree with that viewr" "There ia much force in that opinion. The subject was discussed by Senator Gray, Senator Hoar and others at tbe last session. Senator-. Hoar distinctly pointed out the difficulties in cocaec- ticn with, the proposition concerning trusts made in connection with the tariff bill Without saying that I am of opinion that trusts camnot be effectually suppressed by congress without a change in the constitution I will revert to the fact that the one greatest and most dan- mail on recelDt ot price from Stuart Co., Marshall, Mich.
