What next? _ THE Chicago Tribune says that the Indianapolis monetary convention Is Bade up of estimable men who have undertaken an Impracticable task— that of persuading the people and •ongresj that they should accept an unsafe, retroifacle plan of "currency reform," which, if adopted, would •arry the conn try back to wildcat days and teach fihe present generation what tbe evils of an insecure paper currency are, THE money question Is not the only question In which the American people should be greatly interested. The Democratic party, being the jarty of the phiin people, must fight the trusts and the greedy corporations into subjection. Tbe trusts and the corporations are in complete •ontrol of the present administration.

WHAT MAN DOES NOT LOVE BEAUTY? Mrs. Pinkham Counsels Young Wives to Keeep Their Attiractivaneaa. A Letter From a Young Wife. Seven-eighths of the men in this world marry a woman because she is beautiful in their eyes. What a disappointment then to see the fair young wife's beauty fading away before a year passes over her head ! 1 feel as if I would like to say to every young- woman •who is about to be married— "Strengthen yonrseJf in advance, so that, yon will not break down under the new strain on your powers " Keep your beauty, it is a precious possession ! Your husband loves your beauty, he is proud to be seen in public with you; try to keep it for his sake, asd your own, The pale cheeks, the dark shadows under the eres the general drooping' of the young wife's form, what do they mean ? They mean St her nerves are failing, that her strength is going and that must be done to help her through the coming trials of maternity.

Whv will women suiter when help is near? Let me, as one who has had some experience, urge all suffering women, especially young wives to seek Mrs Pinkham'K advice.-Mrs. R. S. E., 113 E. Catherine St.,Chambersburg, Pa. Thing*; to Remember. "Let it be lemetnbered," says the lodiaoapolls Sentinel, "that every man ic these United States, who Is •elf-supporting, is a 'business man' and has just as great a stake in the prosperity and welfare of tne country as any banker, manufacturer or capitalist whatsoever. Let It be further reaaejnbered that a large majority of the world's great thinkers on economic questions, including men high in place and power in England, France and Germany, most or the professors of political economy in the great English and continental institutions of learning, and nearly all the great manufacturers in the United Kingdom, are blmetallists and believes in a double standard. Let it be further remembered that, with one or two exceptions, every president of i,oe United States and every great parliamentary and party leader in our history have been sup- portOTS of the double standard at the letol ratio. It Is well to recall thaw* facts atthls time when the local atmosphere is pervaded by the assumptions of intellectual, moral and tioclal superiority on the part of the advocates of gold monometallism. Tula coinage question is one on which honeit and intelligent men differ the world over. Bankers and money lendtin In Europe and this country are. almotrt unanimously for the gold •tanclard—for the •carcest and dearest medium of exchange possible. But the preponderance of Intel- v and ionolartelp i« do-we bad almost «ald o-er- Hie tide of bimetal- No Right to Be Bad Tempered. A curious question arises in connection with an essay iu "The Ideal Life," a book made up of the writings ot Rev. Henry Drummoad and brought ont since his death. The contents consist of addresses delivered by Drnmmond at; various timed. One of them is called '"111 Temper." It takes the ground thut bad temper is an evil which requires to bo aboliShed'like drunkenness or dishonesty or lying or anything else that :makes mankind miserable. The question that arises is this, therefore, Has a human being any right ever to indulge in a fit of ill temper? When ho does so, he makes everybody around him wretched, himself included, and injures his own health. We once knew an old man who brought on epilepsy and died oi it simply fay.years of indulgence in a fierce and cruel temper. The person who "raises Cain," who tears and destroys, rages and knocks down and drags out is for the time a lunatic. There is no sense or reason in him. Insanity, even temporary, is not for the good of anybody. Quite as disastrous in its effects is the kind of bad temper v that sulks, that is sour and grumpy and has not a civil word fci anybody. The snlky temper fit lasts longer than the furious temper fit, but oue is as -wicked as theiOther. The two, I the sulker and the violent lunatic, I ought to bo shut up and' fed on bread and water till the crazy fit is over every time there are symptoms oi! an attack. "" A popular hallucination is that 'brie cannot control a bad temper. Kolihing is farther from the truth. One can keep from stealing or lying or murder. He can abstain from doing anything not for the good of society, giving way to ill temper included. It is a crime; nothing less. Society should take toward the oue who habitually indulges it the same attitude as to che chief or habitual d.tunkaid —that he is an enemy to community. When it becomes as much of a disgrace 1:0 give way to a fit of temper asi it is to get drunk, it will soon be seen that anger can bo controlled. The Outlook, commenting oa Professor Drumniond's sermon, says: Society tons a right to say to every member, "You have no Tijiit to indulge in ill temper; you not only oS^'6 it to yourself, but to iis, •to govern your temper." To treat one's fellows with hauituul consideration and courtesy is not to exbJlHt what is sometimes called an easygoing good nature. It is, on the contrary, to disclose one of the highest qualities of character: tor the spirit and attitude which make this treatment of one's fellows possible is uot only temperamental, it is also spiritual. Many of the most agreeable men are thu^e who, if ihey allowed their nature to have its own way, would be -counted among the most trying and difficult. There is no escnsv, therefore, for that unsocial spirit which is so constantly palliated because people charge it to inheritance or natural quality instead of regarding it aa the evidence of a neglect of primary education. A new society has been incorporated in this country called the "Order of the Crown," and only those can belong to it who can prove a lineal descant from some king or other, no matter whom. Let us see* The most notorious debauchees, bloodthirsty monsters and diseased creatures of the modern age have existed from time to time m every one of th« royal houses of Europe. Many of these kings have been iinfamons swindlers, gamblers and blaclnnailers. The taint erf the most horrible hereditary diseases known to modern medicine and surgery is in tbe veins of a majoxiiy of them. Insanity in its most 'riolient form has existed or does now exist in mosc of them and there is a taint of crariness in almo«t errery one. The blood of the conunonert olodhoppiug peisaat in En- rope is clehner and «7imd«r thin that of t of ammx»J lieu* and more to be desired in one's veins. It •we were descended from any of these old debauchees and monsters; : fore heaven, -we -would be ashamed to tell it 1 — ~7 , •: A pure food and drug convention has been called.ito meet in .Washington March 2. Its object is t;o urge congress to pass a law against the adulteration of food and drugs. Sncb a convention is welcome. In their haste to get rich both' grocers and druggists in the United States have adulterated their preparations to a point where reputable dealers in these lines of trade have uttered a loud protest. The dirty, unwholesome and sometimes actively poisonous substances that have been mixed with foods and medicines by unprincipled 'druggists and grocers have cost many a life. The number arid variety of these delejig:, rious substances are . beyond belief -ijy one not behind the scenes. Their evil mysteries have only been, revealed when states have passed. pure food and drug laws and appointed inspectors to see that such laws were executed.- It would be better if the matter could'be left still to state legislation, if there were prbs 1 -' pect that such legislation would reach the case. The most satisfactory feature of the movement for pure. food, and drugs is that the reputable grocers and chemists are themselves the leaders of it. The coal, companies in a large bituminous combination have decided to introduce the profit sharing system among the miners. Jt- is hoped th& .will help abolish the periodical strikes that so often paralyze for a icime the coal industry. If it is honestly and generously executed, the plan wiUi no doubt help to produce a better feeling" between miners and their employers.. There is one feature of the coal mining system, however, which even profit sharing cannot cope -with. How can it stop overproduction and the consequent forcing down of coal in price to a point where both miners and operators lose money? It is scarcely to be wondered at that the common, more ignorant .classes of the people in every country of, Europe break out and riot against Jews occasionally. Jews are the leading financiers and are among the leading artists and composers of music, the leading authors, statesmen and scientific and professional men in every nation. The race has made for itself this predominance through sheer force of persistence and inherent intellectual power. To the blind prejudice of the ignorant and incompetent classes is added a fierce jealousy. Curious kinks come into the mind of" the man who starts ont by worshiping hiaseli "I am the Lord's anointed; therefore it is as rank blasphemy to speak against me as against the Almighty himself." This is the reasoning which has really fermented in the brain of the little emperor of Germany. The nest step is insanity. The list of fire losses is smaller for 1897 than for either 1S95 or 1896. This is partly owing to the fact thai some of the companies have pnt up their rates for fire insurance. It is owing partly, however, to another cause, and that is the general adoption of the steel frame for new buildings of the largest and most improved class,, , If some people need as much energy and ingenuity in trying to maka an honest living M they expend in trying to cheat others, they would die mfllioB- aim every one. • - • Cowboys to the Front Again. Spurs are jingling, long locks are waving, white soft bats and high heeled boots are leaking their appearance in the -western tcwns again, and with a whoop la! the cowboy vaults into his old haunts. The reason is the cattle business booms once more. It even gives pro-raise of assuming its old proportions,' when many of the "cattle barons" made a fortune" of $1,000,000 in a few years. The rise and fall in price of a commodity is something not always easy to understand. On the oue hand, we were told five years ago that the cattle business of the west and southwest was overdone, that there were too many beeves raised aad put on the market, so that the price went down belcw where the money received for a steer paid even for the cost of raising him. On the other hand, however, all the time that the in eat producers were making this plaint the price of beef in the older pares of the country declined at retail not one cent. Somebody must have been m;iking money in the meat business even then. However that was, though, the price of meat to the producer went dow.ti till it drove many of the greut cattle barons into bankruptcy. The boom years of Che old timo cattle ran ; je were from 1882 to 1888, when ofie man rpwiied sometimes a herd of 30, uOO to 40,000. The regions of greatest prosperity were in New 31exico, Arizona and Texas. The drop began in 1889. The lowest notch was reached in 1893 and 1894. It was rather odd meantime that during the years of the greatest depression in the cattle business the farmers of Nebraska,. Illinois and Missouri were burning their corn for fuel because its price was so low that it did not pay the freight charged for shipping it. In 1896, when the cattle trade began to revive, the farmers of the corn belt saw a great light, as it were. Ic suddenly.pccurred to them to buy beef cattle from the western ranges and fatten them for the eastern market v;ith the surplus corn. Now this industry—fattening beeves for market, "finishing off," as it is called—has assumed gigantic proportions. Farmers no longer burn their corn. They drive it cfi in the shape of live beef at a good round price per pound. Those who get the most money for the cattle are, however, the shippers. These are the men who buy the half fattened cattle in Texasi New Mexico and Arizona, ship them by rail to the corn belt and sell them to the feeders. One cattle shipper, Sir. Gillett of Woodbine, Kan^, is said to have cleared $50,000 in this way last year. The cattle business of tbe uew boom is on a better and more humane basis than the old one was. It is also here to stay. The demand for good beef is steadily increasing at home and abroad. The "Domestic" Office. A naughty old girl is Eliza Brooks of Stioudsburg, if the story told on her is trae. Eliza is 60 years old, and a month ago.sbe was marriedyto an old .gentleman of 78, who took-'her to his heart and home ort her representation that she was -a widow and had laid Brooks away in the cold, cold ground in 1878. Where Brooks really was all this time does not appear. He was not dead though. It is likely that be would have kept his •whereabouts a secret till the day ot jndg- nient if Eliza had not married again. Shortly after she took her second partner, however, a.letter arrived from Brooks ia Brooklyn inquiring for his "long lost wife." Wb,en she sought solace witjj COMMON SENSE CUKE.
