The latter condition has prevailed lor the last two years. -f- -4- -f- Let the farmer who reads this ask himself if an acre of pasture land With young steers on it has not produced greater value during the last two years than an acre of land in corn, notwithstanding the labor required by the latter. Does he believe the gold standard put corn down and steers upl Does he believe that congress can correct a condition like this? Is it not apparent, rather, that our farming has been out oi balance? It may be said, that if more steers are raised 'the price will decline. Possibly, but whatever value goes out of them will go into corn. Giving back part of our farms to pasture and using up more corn on the farms, will mean smaller receipts of corn at the central markets, and higher prices. Everybody ought to welcome the day when no corn will be shipped out of Iowa. The shipment of corn from west of the Mississippi river to make beef and buttei in New England and Europe is an economic absurdity. It takes three-fourths of the present value of corn in Liverpool to pay the freight on it from Iowa, while butter can be shipped the same distance for 1 cents per pound. It took all of last winter about half the value of our corn in Chicago to get it there, and only about five per cent, of the value of a steer. All bulky products should bo consumed where they are raised. Wo must put ourselves in line with such facts as these, and not butt blindly against them relying upon free silver or some other governmental aid to take care of us. The way our production of corn arid steers has gotten out of balance illustrates the general dislocation of production which has occurred in the whole industrial field during these years of depression. Our modern system of production is a very complex affair. We have all become specialists. We do some one thing, and every man depends for his own market upon the ability of others to buy. Tho system is wonderfully effective when working at its best, but it is easy to see the disadvantages. When every family Supplied all of its im portaut wants it was comparatively inde pendent. Many people think it would be better for people to get back close to the soil where there is security. In hard times this view has many converts who forget al about it when work again becomes plenty and earnings better than the farm affords It is idle to argue the subject, but of course the true remedy is in using the advantages of our wonderfully effective system of pro duction to provide against its disadvantag es; in other words, by providing in. tho daj of plenty against the reaction which unbal anced production may at any time bring There is no occasion for intelligent men to wonder what causes the recurrence o "hard times," nor excuse for the readiness with which so many assume that such conditions are to be permanent, and are forth with ready to try any experiment, upon the theory that they could not be worse off When we consider how complicated our vast industrial machine is, how we rely upon every man to find his own place in it and how prone people are to rush like a flock of sheep into this and that industry aud how many there are who make no pro vision against loss of wages, it is not strange that our affairs should occasionally fall into deadlock. Can anybody tell bj how much the uuusual economics of the American people have reduced production and how many men have thus been thrown out of work during tho past four years? And every man thus deprived of earning power has been shrinking market. one less •» buyer on the The silver theory last fall was that we were justified in scaling down the dollar because corn was so low. The man in debt was told that if he gave the same amount of corn to cancel his debt which was its equivalent when ho made the debt, justice was satisfied. In brief it was proposed to make corn the standard instead of gold, and to keep our money at a fixed relation to corn instead of to gold. It will be seen by the above table that when a period of years is]taken thcro.havebeen butslightvariations in the relations of corn and gold, but it must be admitted that throughout these years gold has born a steadier relation to labor, and all the products of labor, than has corn. So gold is a better standard of value than corn or any other product of quick consumption and variable crop. The candid observer must feel now that it was most fortunate that tho American people did not commit themselves to the theory of altering their money to correspond to the price of corn. It would be be better to adopt corn outright as our standard of value, and make all promissory notes, wages and prices payable in corn, for then the creditor, the wage-earner and the seller would have a chance to get corn when it was dear as well as when it was cheap, but last years proposition was to cut down the money once for all. All of the vast sums of property involved in -notes, bonds, contracts, wage-agreements, bank deposits, insurance policies were to be ruthlessly halved to suit the price of corn in one single year of our history. The American people may well shudder when they think of thejabyss of shame and ruin at the brink of which they stopped. Our honest name, our business credit, our capacity for self government, tho national character for stability, intelligence and integrity were at stake. What do we think of a man who is always wanting to go to some other and better (i) locality than where he is, who, when it is wet in Iowa moves to Dakota, and when Jt'. is dry in Dakota goes to Missouri, and soon,' always looking fop relief from his troubles' by moving, instead of developing the wealth which every locality possesses. Tbe' country ie full pf moving politicians of just; that kind, who if they could but run the government, and introduce one measure or another, woijl4 banish care from the world. They are fte rain-maker? of our politics, and their fjntics are generally preposterous few years time. We raised $500 in Fort Dodge for some rain-makers in 1S94, and I gave |5 of it myself. When I mildly protested lack of faith the committee said: "We must do something; if not this, what else?"-' and I gave $5 because I could not offer any other remedy. GEO. E. ROBERTS.

Dread of such treatment kept thousands of modest women silent about their suffering. Theln- troduction of Wine of Cardul has now demonstrated that nine-tenths of all the cases of menstrual disorders do not require a physician's attention at all, The simple, pure i taken In the privacy of a woman's own home insures quick relief and speedy cure. Women need not hesitate now. Wine of Cardul requires no humiliating ex&aina- tions for its adoption. It cures any disease that comes under the head of "female troubles"—disordered menses, falling of the womb, "whites, "change of life. Itmakes women beautiful by making them well.
