May it not be possible tbat some of Us members may be In the employ of those who are Interested in gold monometallism and In surrendering the privilege ot issuing paper mouey to the banks? cotgresamen are not disposed to maize known their views en the currency scheme proposed by the monetary commlssicn. They will wait to seui what the newspapers •ay before committing themselves Secretary Gag», who, perhaps, knew . what the plan would be, speaks approvingly'. LET the'American people adopt tbe plan of currency reform recom- •aended by thm monetary commission And another link in the chain that will bind tl:iem in slavery to a moneyed aristocracy will have been securely welilled. The producing millions of America ought to defy further encroachments by the money power. ________ SECRETARY GAOH takes a very Hopeful view of tbe business situation and declares tbat prosperity is here. He attributes the change to the enormous balance of trade io our favor. He predicts that the United States will shortly become the great- cct creditor nitiou on earth. Every condition is itavorable to prosperity In this country, but it is not coming Tory rapidly, notwithstanding the enormous exports of American farm products whitib Europe is thin year compelled to buy. There are nearly 100,000 idle-men in New Yorlt cltj alone, and tbe wages of 50,000 labor ing people in the New England cot ton mills will be reduced more than 10 per cent lihis week. What oondi turn would American farmers now be in had there been no foreign demand for our food products? Natural con dltioni favor prosperity; artlficia conditions do not. THI, currency reform plan submitted by the monetary commission i« being analyzed by the press of the lountry and its purposes interpreted, Judging from the character of the report submitted It may be surmised! tbat the men who drafted the plan are the paid agents of the gold conspirators and the national banks. Tbe Indianapolis Sentinel maintain;) that in the first section of the "plan" is proposed a direct steal ol! over $200,000,000 from the people. It ts in these words: "All obligations of the UJited States for tbe payment of money now existing, ,or hereafter entered into, shall, unless otherwise expressly provided, be deemed, and held, to be payable in gold coin of the United States, as defined in the standard aforesaid " This would by declaration ot law make ail our outstanding bonds geld bonds, Ti.e value of this change to the bond-holder is definitely known. At the Jast sale of bonds by Mr. Cleveland, In 1895, be reported to congress that the blda for $62,400,000 of bonds were made 116,174,770 gireater on condition the bonds werei made payable In 'gold" than If payable In "coin," Congress refused to make the change. The contraclilwas closed with special! attention drawn to the fact that, making the bonds payable in gold added about 25 per cent to their market valuo. And now it is pro-- josed to change the contract in thai) ivay, without a ceo'tof compensations as to over »840,000,000 of bonds. It is just as pla,in a case of robbery as.it; would be for tbe bondholders to enter the treasury vaults with drill and dynamite and jimmies and take that amount of tbe people^ money. Boned Goow. Select a good sized goose and hare it boned; then stuff with the following forcemeat: Pass through the mincing machine a pound of cooked tongue and half a pound of fat ham, then mix thia •with a teaspoonful of mixed herbs, the same quantity of chopped parsley, a shallot, 2 hard boiled eggs finely minced and a breakfast, cup full of brown bread crumbs, Season thia mixture with pepper, ^alt and a pinch of mace. Bind together with 2 eggs well beaten, adding a small glass of port wine. Sew the bird up securely and skewer well together and roast. When done, allow to get cold and then mask with a good glaze. When this is set, remove the skewers and tie round twice with white ribbon. Garnish with parsley, rings of lemon and thin slices of apple. This will be found a really delicious way of serving a goose. The dish is also decidedly decorative in effect. THE BATTLES OF THE EIGHTEENTH REGIMENT, 1861 TO 1864. With Hoocl't Texan* »t G«ine« MU1 mnd Second Mnnmt«»—With Cobb'« Georgian* at jrrederlclubarv, Gettysburg find tbe WUdeme». [Copyright. 189S, by American Press Association. Book lights reserved.] ARLY in April, 1861, the Eighteenth Georgia took the field, led by Colonel W. T. Wofford. Favored of fortune for a year, it saw no fighting until June, 1862, when ~ it covered itself with glory and •cars by charging and capturing nine pieces of .Federal artillery at Gaines Mill. The glory consisted in the trophies of the battlefield.. The regiment was then in brigade with Hood's Texans, a famous band of fighters that carried off the. honors that day by piercing the Federal center and deciding th&-.-'battle. Hood's charge at Gaines Millwas the first brilliant and successful feat of the kind on the battlefields of tne Potomac. The day was going against Lee when the Texans were ordered in to start something. Everywhere in Lee's front were lines of breastworks and . batteries planted upon ridges, only to be approached across wide and swampy iravin.es. In front of Hood at the bottom bed of a ravine ran a deeu creek with sciirped banks answering admirably for a ditch. Beyond it was a breastwork heavily. manned, and above that near the crest another breastwork manned wilih infantry and several; well served guns. The slope was covered with thin timber, screening the Federals from view, but enabling them to eee the charging enemy. Led by Hood in. peison, the Fourth Texas and Eighteenth Georgia together rushed on through the - ravine over ditch and breastwork up the hill into the batteries and swarming infantryi but leaving a bloody trail behind them. Colonel Marshall of the-Fourth was killed instantly, bnt General Hood and Colonel Ruff of the Eighteenth Georgia escaped. Fourteen cannon were captured ia~ the charge, and-nine of them credited to the Georgians.; Gaines Mill might have had a different history if the attack of Hood at the center bad been delayed or had failed. Re-enforcements for the Federal line were within hail, but - the rush of the Texans over the works in full view of the army almost caused a panic, for the Federals were largely outnumbered all over the field. The Eighteenth was: spared further slaughter throughout i;he seven days' battles, although it was engaged several times. Its nest bloody affair was with the Texans ac second Manassaa. In that battle Hood comaiaadod one of Longstreet's divisions ami vias in the thick of the fighting which saved Jackson from, destruction . on AUK.. 29 and 30, CXvercp.at Artfin tiftrornani * °$ on soine Overcoat6 and Boy» l&efera, --,- -= AIlIHIUDvWinCUr, ,^ e propose to use the papers to Arinbhnce 8PECIA1* OFFERiXGS Our raeular line will keep right up to the highest standard,, also oortinne the.

The answer wan About -one person in every four uflers from some lorm of rectal disease. The most common and annoy- ng Is Itching piles, indicated by warmth, slight moisture and intense, uncontrollable itching in the parts affected. . The usual-treatment has been some simple ointment or salye, which sometimes give temporary relief, but nothing like a permanent cure c*h be expected from such superficial treatment. . The only n°rra&nent cure tor itching piles yet dhicciTered .is the Pyramid Pile Cure, not only for itching piles, but for. every other form of piles, blind, bleeding or protruding. The first application gives instant relief and the continued' uae for a short time .causei! a permanent removal of the tumors or che small parasites which- cause the intense Itching and discomfort of itching piles. Many physiciaas for a long time lupposed that the remarkable relief afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cure was because it wts supposed to con- iain cocaine, opium or other similar drugs, but such. IB not the case. A recent analysis of the remedy showed it to be absolutely llree from any cocaine, opium, or in. fact any poisonous, injurious -dnigti whatever. ss" iraa placed "Jackson IiS a trap, and Longstreet saved him on both days; After dark set in on the 29th the regiment, led by Colonel Wofford, charged a ravine held by Hatch's brigade, drove the enemy arid captured a trophy in the shape of a battleflag be-, longing to the Twenty-fourth New York. Next day came the tag of war to decide who should hold .Manassas. Jack? son was being overwhelmed by Pope and Fitz-Jolm Porter's corps came np on the flank of Jackson to give tbe fin- .ishing stroke -when Hood's division, led by the Tesan brigade, dashed into the flank of Porter. The Georgians ran against tie Tenth New York zouaves, skirmishing in front of the Fifth New York zouaves,.the two regiments constituting. General Warren's demibri- gade.' Warren was in support of Hazlitt's battery, the bulwark then of Por- ter'is flank and of the flank of the army. The Tenth New York held its ground until overrun, then in pursuit, cheered by the capture of the flag of the Tenth by Private William Kay, tbe Georgians rushed upon Duryea's sturdy zouaves, the Fifth New York. The Duryeas had had -warning and were in solid line, but the Georgians struck them diagonally, compelling fciiejn to bend back the line and fight from t-wo facings. In thia manner they covered the battery and stood there until over 400 of their number fell in their tracks, over 100 of them killed. Orders to retreat were given before the. line was annihilated, but tbe officers who attempted to repeat them along the ranks were killed before they could make the orders heard. The Georgians swept on over the prostrate zouaves, and the color bearer mounted one of tbe guns and waved his battleflag to cheer on the hand'Eul remaining.. Closing up its gaping ranks, the regiment clashed on to a socond battery. The indomitable color bearer, Sergeant Weems, led the column and was shot dovi-n within 40 paces of tbe second row of guns. Two others fell in attempting to keep the flag afloat. Blindly rushing on, the Georgians found themselves alone in the midst of two Federal regiments. Colonel Wofford withdrew h»s remnant to the old line. Lieutenant Colonel Buff and the major bad been wounded. 'The loss in the ranks that day-was 37 killed and 87wounded. Tbe most of this occurred in the struggle with the zouaves. Two weeks after Manassas Hood's division, together with Stonewall Jackson's old command, bore the brunt of ihK terrible- fighting between the .east and west woods at Antietam. The space between these two pieces of woods in front of Dunker church was partly pasture and meadow, partly stubble' and partly covered with tall standing corn— that is, tbe corn was standing when the battle opened. • After successive charges by the Federal divisions of Meade and Williams and those of Jackson and Law- MEN AND WOMEN SEE OUR FELT SLIPPERS.
