From 1876 to 1880, while silver was going down, tbe.aver- age-price of wheat at Bombay rose to ?1.49-per bushel. Between 1881 an'd 1885 the average price of wheat at Bombay was $1.10 per bushel, and from 1880 to 1890 $1.01 per bushel, although silver had been tending upward. From 1891 to 1805 the average price of wheat at Bombay was 95 cents per bushel. Had wheat followed the price of silver it should have been only 68 cents per bushel. Cotton exports from India to Europe have been equally at variance with the theories advanced by Mr. Bryan. In 1874 India exported 1,230,882 bales and in 1875 ' 1,241,526 bales. During the fave years following its cotton export was below 1,000,000 bales: In 1879 it was only 041,458 bales. During the five years ending with 1895 the cotton export from India has been steadily decreasing. In- 1891 it was 1,028,417 bales; in 1892, 954,000^ bales: in 1893, ?£ 95 Vt. 82 $/-' 00 , b £ Ies> Iu contrast with this the United States exports of cotton have been steadily increasing. In 1890 &2Z ? m SA in ,i p ,? t( ? 5,020,913 bales; in 1891, 5,820,779 bales; in 1802, 5,891,411 bales; in 1893, 4,431.220 bales; in 1894, 0,397,500 bales; in 1895, 6,965,358 imlus! Thus it will be seen that the India bugbear has no foundation, but has been conjured up for political purposes by Bryan, Harvey and all the apostles of silver.—Omaha Bee. THINGS TO REMEMBER.

Canton is alive with enthusiasm, the courthouse, business places and private houses are decorated with flags,' portraits of Maj. McKinley, national colors and various national and patriotic devices. It is easy to recognize the McKinley residence by the lawn, which is worn ; brpwn and bare by the delegations that continue to come from all parts to pay their respects to the future occupant of the white house. Never before have women taken such an active interest in the presidential campaign, and never before sinco the nomination of President Lincoln hove women's hearts ' been',so stirred over the condition of the country, and while' many are interested because of the main issues of the campaign, all are interested in the Republican nominee for president, because 'of his standing, as a man and a citizen, and his social and family life, The residence of Qov, and Mrs, Me- Jvinlejr is homelike, and^ free from PS- tentation, A porch extends' along the entire front of the house, some fine old trees cast a 'grateful shade upqa ,*h e T^?' *yj? bed(J -°*' Sowers attract the eight.
