Free purchase of silver is what it is. This would add at once to the volume of money all tbe silver brought to the mints. {These certificates are in a rcund about way payable in gold.

They claim that tbe leading commercial nations must agree upon a ratio at which they will use the double standard in order to insure its stability. Until they do any nation which opens its mints to free coinage will soon find itself on a silver basis, a change which might do no damage, once accomplished, but which in the accomplishment would unsettle all values aod cause wide-spread panic and uncertainty in business. *••*--*What would the restoration of the double standard do? It would change all the silver from a credit to a standard money, do away with the necessity for gold reserves, widen tbe basis of credit, secure stability to business, stop tbe gradual appreciation in the purchasing power of tbe dollar, furnish tbe world with a sufficient supply of metallic money, cause an immediate restoration of confidence, prevent such panics as tbe United States has Just passed through, and secure justice to tbe debtor class, •*• •*• -T- How can this restoration be accomplished?

J. I{. Sage of tbe Iowa \Veatber Bureau J'ralBes Henry Durant's Recent Dlscasalon of Storms. The following letter explains itself and is very flattering notice of Henry Duraot's studies of weather, storms, etc.: DES MOIKES, July 1L—H. Durant, Esq Algona, Iowa—Dear Sir: Your excellent article in the Register, of recent date, attracted my notice, and finding that your name was not on our mailing list I forwarded a few publications that might be of interest, to show you what we are attempting to do in Iowa in conjunction with the National Weather bureau. I was deeply interested m your article, acd find so many points of agreementtbat I am not disposed to criticise some minor statements wherein we are not in full accord. You have evidently made a study of the subject, and I sm trying to do a little educational work along the same line. By this mail I forward additional matter, which will give you a more complete idea of tbe scope of the work of our state service. Mr. Pettibone is our observer in your place. I shall be glad to have you write short articles for tbe Monthly Review. Yo«r name b*» been added to the mailing list, to receive future publications. Respectfully yours, J. R. SAGB. Saloons WpU BI4 Of, The l<adyard leader sayp tbat no* has greatly beneflttei }ts to^u, tbe celf bratloa mm en Cbkago, Mil waokeeiSL Paul rail wav, aod tbe ronping erf which we have reason to believe is fnlij known and coanived at by tbe officers of tbe road. We are eredibiy inlonned tbat tbe ea- terprue, if so it may be termed, was started aod is backed up by local capitalists of Mason CStv, some of whom bare posed before the public for rears as active prohibitionists. The car referred to has been fitted np from an old passenger coach, ostensibly for lunch ordininffcar purposes, where one can get lunch or meals at any hour of the day while the train is running. We know from actual test that in this car intoxicating liquors are sold openlv acd above board and without the least attempt at concealment. That all one has to dp is to call for what he wants, pay for it, and be forthwith served by the obsequious waiters. We wonder what our namby-pamby probrs — those fellows who shut their eyes and will not see or believe tbat such things exist — would say if forced to witness this open violation of the existing laws of the state of Iowa. Indeed it might be an object lesson to some of them if they would take the trouble to quietly wander down to the station some fine evening and observe tbe "old soaks" waiting for the train to pull in: witness the eagerness with which they jump aboard to indulge in their favorite " punishment," to notice also also how accommodatingly tbe train is held bv the "con." until all 'are served. This feature of tbe liquor traffic we opine would give them some new ideas and would be well worth their serious consideration. We smile to think of the howl that would go up all over the land if this open violation of the law d pro- was committed by the degraded prietor of an ordinary blind pig, or some poor devil of a boot-legger, but forsooth because tbe act is perpetrated at the instance of Messrs. "So-and-So," wealthy capitalists, as a business venture, it is winked at by the general public and no effort put forth to stop or even curtail the evil. In the face of all this well might one exclaim in tbe language of the immortal bard: "O consistency, thou art a jewel 1 ." A OHAPTEB OF AOGIDEFrS. E. P. Keith's team in Plum Creek ran away with &' corn cultivator, went two miles through five gates and over a set of scales, and no damage done. The bicycle got in its work at Em- meteburg. Knute Iverson's team ran away, spilled him out, result, one arm and shoulder broken, and wrist sprained, bad cut on tbe head, and serious bruises. Little Ethel McWhorter of Plum Creek bad the bad luck to take a tumble from her horse while riding Sunday afternoon, putting tbe elbow out of joint and slightly fracturing the bone. The Monitor says Dr. Peters has her getting well. The Livermore Gazette has received the news but not the particulars of tbe death of Carl Baessler, who received & sun stroke while at work in his corn field on his farm southeast of Livermore last week Thursday, died from the effects of it on Friday and was buried Saturday. Bay Coffin at Plover was about to drink a glass of lemonade on the Fourth. Another' kid thought how funny it would be to shoot a firecracker between the glass and Ray's mouth It exploded, filling Ray's face with paper and powder which took a doctor a.11 day to pick out. The Hurt Monitor says: Miss Luella Cleary is staying iu Algona for a few weeks. She has a very sore arm, the result of a bruise, causing tuberculosis of tbe bone, which necessitated lancing the arm and scraping tbe bone, It bas been very troublesome for several weeks and her friends hope tbe operation will prove a successful one, Robert Barrett, foreman in tbe St. LQUIS gravel pit, was accidentally shot wb>le sitting on tbe platform at the Forest City depot last Wednesday evening, the bullet lodging in tbe upper part of the right leg on the vjnijei' eide, Tbe woun£ was made by a ball from a |2 eaubrs r W e aud was not serious Barrett being able to resume bis duties pntbe road the next day, Tbe sho| «p frem ftlpng tfce west bank 0 { tbe •- where several prti §8 w^ - Some Loanbratfone From tbe «tronc Journal Accompanied by » Few facts. If the Armstrong Journal bad known that it was tbe Algona member of tbe board, Mr. Chubb, who voted to divide the county into supervisor district*, and tbat tbe three votes against the proposition came from the extreme north and east of the county, the following paragraph would probably have been revised. It is worth reading: "The citizens of Kossuth county voted last fall to have the county divided into supervisor districts, but the board at- their June meeting refused to mak& the districts, giving as an excuse that tbe county could not be divided into five districts and give as good satisfaction as under the present system. What are elections held for anywav? A large majority of the people said "it could be divided satisfactorily,, hat three supervisors who voted in tbe negative when the question came before tbe board proceeded to say that a majority of the people in the county are a gang of fools. If this same board of supervisors had the power, they would probably disfranchise most of the citizens in the county. It is a wonder they did not refuse to let the people vote on the question. It would have been better, as it would have saved some expense. But Kossuth county, and Algona especially, produces some very queer philanthropists, and some wonderfully wise men in certain lines. 3 To begin with there was no vote at all on the supervisor district question hist falL It was two rears ago. No districts were made aod no one cared enough about it to kick or to want another election on it, aod Mr. Hollenbeck was re-elected without any question. So far as the binding effect of that election is concerned it passed with the year in wbich it occurred. Why was tbat vote not considered binding? Because not more than half the voters of the county expressed themselves, and of these only a scant majority were for districts. The vote was 977 for, to 750 against Technically such a vote might be as binding as a unanimous vote of every man in the county for district*. But looked at from a fair business standpoint there is nothing in such a vote to warrant a board in acting unless tbe proposal in view is plain and easy to carry out. No man can cut Kossuth into five acceptable districts. The proposition was up at the last board meeting and while Messrs. Chubb and Barton voted for a division they thought might work, the three members to the north were ferninst it. The county bas & good board as it is. Location is not half so much on a board of supervisors as brains and business capacity. A HOMELESS AGE. Rlngllng Bros. 1 Remarkable Bxposl- tton of the BIse or tbe Bicycle. If anything was needed to convince the public of the progressive character of Ringling Brothers'World's Greatest shows, it • would be furnished in the latest sensation offered by the tireless managers of this greatest of all great exhibitions. Tbe growth of bicycling, both hi this country and in Europe, during the past decade, has culminated in an era that may be fittingly designated as the "horseless age." The improvements in the bicycle have followed each other in such rapid succession that the wheel" of ten years ago would excite derision if seen upon the boulevards today. With infinite pains and the expenditure of a great deal of money Ringling Brothers have succeeded in perfecting a complete exposition of the bicycle in all its progressive stages, from the crude wooden velocipede of a few years back to the present day of steel-wire spokes and pneumatic tires, and in order to properly illustrate the origin of the '-wheel" as well as the marvelous opportunities it offers to the trained rider, t ? eyl ' av . e imported an entire troupe of skilled bicyclists from Europe, This notable troupe, known as the French family, are the greatest exponents of the bicycle in the world. The family comprises six ladies and gentlemen of matchless skill, who give a complete acrobatic performance upon tbe "wheel," forming -pyramids, turning single and double somersaults, and vaulting from the shoulders of one rider to those of another while whirling around tbe central stage with the speed of a race horse. The slow speed and limitations of tbe old-time velocipede as compared with the latest improved bicycle is (ilso shown m an apt and interesting manner. The members of the troupe are all clever mimics, and the exbi- Wtipn of Old-style riding offers many opportunities for humorous caricature that French family alap give a remarkable ex- bibitipn of fancy ond grotesque roller skat- Sff 1 m °H aIn e » laughable comedy OB woeejs, a feature of their a.ot which always creates unlimited enthusiasm and hearty laughter, Jt requires tbree rings, two !*8S!L»JKPM of *>rla! apparatus, W » „_,.,.„.„„„,, exhibition, and eves necessary y> simultaneously dis. ,,\ five to ten apts i» or4er to bring i>rmgnc§ witbin a reasouabte lijjiil, , T yr ™**,^ to ex.amiu,6 the magnificent zo* nS^SLSW" 11 ^ w*»««i«w if KHrailww an* tbe. comfort, r i<?
