CLEVELAND'S ViEWS. r ord» of Sober Admonition Written by the PrpsMmt to ChlnJiK" PrlinxlH L:\Kt April! In answer to an invitation to address a meeting of Chicago business men last April, President Cleveland wrote a let- tor expressing regret nt his inability to he present, in tho conrso of which he said: 'The situation confronting us demands that those who appreciate tho importance of this subject and those who ought to be the first to see the impending danger should no longer remain indifferent or overconfident. If tho BOTind moucy sentiment abroad in the land is to save us from mischief and disaster, it must be crystallized nnd com- Dined and made immediately active. It is clangorous to overlook tho fact that a vast number of our people, with scant opportunity thus far to examine tho question in all its aspects, have nevertheless boon ingeniously pressed with specious suggestions, which in this tirno of misfortune and depression find willing listeners, prepared to give credence to any scheme which is plausibly presented as a remedy for their unfortunate condition. "What is now needed more than anything else isupluin and simple presentation of the argument in favor of sound .money. In other words, it is a time for the American people to reason together M members of a great Nation, which can promise them a continuance of protection and safety only so long as its solvency is unsuspected, its honor unsullied and the soundness of its money unquestioned. These things are ill-exchanged for the illusions of a .debased currency and groundless hope of advantages to be gained by a disregard of our financial credit and coinmerical standing among tho nations of the world. "If our people were isolated from all others, and if the question of our currency could be treated without regard to our relations to other countries, its character would be a matter of comparatively little importance. If the American people wore only concerned in the maintenance of their physical life among themselves, they might return to the old days of barter, and in this primitive manner acquire from each other tho materials to supply the wants of their existence. But if American 'civilization were satisfied with this, it ivrould abjectly fail in its high and noblo mission. "In these restless days, tho farmer is tempted by tho assurance that, though our currency may bo debased, redundant and uncertain, such a situation will improve the price of his products. Let .us remind him that wo must buy as well as sell; that his dreams of plenty are shaded by the certainty that if tho price of tho "things he has to sell is nominally onchanced, tho cost of things he must buy will not remain stationary; 'that the better prices which cheap money proclaims are unsubstantial and .elusive, and that even if they, were real and palpable he must necessarily bo left far behind in tho race for their enjoy : ment.. "It ought not to be difficult to convince tho wage-earner that if there •were benefits arising-from a dogonor ated currency, they would reach him least of all and last of all. In an un healthy stimulation of prices, an in •creased cost of all the needs of his homo must long be his portion, while he i? at the same time vexed with vanishing visions of increased wages and an easier lot. The pages of history and experience are full Q£ thjs lo?spn. All Clause* Interested. "An insidious attempt is made to ere ate a prejudice against the advocates of a safe and sound currency by tho insinuations, more or less directly made, that they belong to financial and business classes and are, therefore, not only out 'of sympathy with the common people of the land, but, for selfish and wicked purposes, wo willing to sacrifice tho interests of those outside their circle. I believe that capital and wealth, through combination and other. means, so:^:- or a sound, currency m.i.>, u± * o^-^ , I invested with a greater or less import auco to individuals, according to tlicvr' condition ami circumstances: It is, however, only a difference in. uegroo, since it is utterly impossible that any one in our broad land, rich or poor, whatever may bo his occupation, and whether dwelling in a center, of finance and commerce, or in a remote corner of onr domain, can be really bencfittod by a financial sohemo not alike beneficial to all our people, or that any one should le excluded from a common and universal interest in tho safe character and stablp value of the currency of the country. ' "In our relation to this question, we aro all in business, for we all buy and •ell; HO we all have to do with financial operations, for wo all earn money and apend it. We can not escape our inter•dependence. Merchants and dealers are 'in every neighborhood, and each has its shops and manufactories. . Wherever ; the wants, of man exist., business^ and finance in some degree aro found, related in one direction to those whose wantethey supply and in another to the more extensive business and finance to which they »re tributary.

The discredit or depreciation in the financial centers of any form of money in tho hands of the people is a signal of immediate loss everywhere. If reckless discontent and wild experiment should sweep our currency from its safe support, the most defenseless of all who suffer in that time of distress and national Discredit will be the poor, ns they reckon'the loss in their scanty support, and tho laborer and workinpman, as he gees the money he has received for his toil shrink and shrivel in his hand when he tenders it for the necessaries to supply his humble home. "Disguise it as we may, tho line of battle is drawn between tho forces of safe currency and those of silver mono- metallism. I will not believe that if our people are afforded an intelligent opportunity for sober second thought, they will sanction schemes that, however cloaked, mean disaster and confusion, nor that they will consent, by undermining the foundation of a safe currency, to endanger the beneficent character and purposes of their government. Yours very truly, ' 'GROVEB CLEVELAND." PRAISE OF MR. MOUNT. Republican Canaidfttc For Governor Cor- dlnlly Commended, by the Inill- anapolU Sentinel. In its issue of April 17, 1896, three weeks prior to the state Republican convention, .tho Indianapolis Sentinel published the following: "Mr. Mount has many of the qualifications that should go toward,tho makeup of a strong candidate. He is of the people strictly. As a soldier his record is without blemish. At Ohickamauga he covered, himself wifh glory by twice JAMES A.MOmlT. leading tho skirmish lino, and throughout the war was at the front. He is a self-made man, having by strict attention to business become possessed of one of tho finest homes in the state and a 500-acro farm that hasn't a bad piece of fence on it. He has addressed farmers' institutes in every county in the state and knows all the farmers. Ho is an intelligent man, but ho isn't a politician, arid that will offset all tho other qualities. If tho Republican party wanted a good, safe, honest, intelligent man as its candidate it would nominate Mr. Monnt." •' PERTINENT INTERROGATIONS.

SHE SEES THE FUTURE. ld Girl's Remarkable Gift of Prophecy. Beared In Humble Surroundlnerx and Her . Parents Arc Cnable to Explain the Phenomenon—Some Sample* of Her 1'ower. Little Mabel Miller, five years of agv, living on Houston avenue, near Nineteenth street, South Chicago, is a prophetess, a natural one, who does not deem it necessary to go into a trance when she wants to foretell events. She simply tells what is to happen, in the most matter-of-fact way, and thinks no more about it. She delivered her first prophecies when but two years of age, when she began to learn to talk, and at first they excited no particular comment, as her mother is a plain, unimaginative woman, who possesses no knowledge of occult matters, and therefore gave no heed to the chatter of the infant phenomenon. Mabel's father is a German, but her mother's father is a Frenchman, M. Joviue. German is the language spoken in the house altogether, and, although Mabel has never heard anything else, she is able to epeak English quite as fluently. Illness in the family she invariably predicts, and there has not as yet been an instance where she was in error. When asked how it is she can tell when a member of the household is about to bo ill she invariably says: "I sees 'em in the bed." As a rule her prophecies are without solicitation, as she usually makes no reply when, asked concerning 1 future events, and if she does not feel like talking nothing can induce her to say a word. Mabel's home is a modest two-story frame house, like hundreds of others In the vicinity, and the 'family are in modest circumstances, the father being a workman in a neighboring factory. All the members of the family are attendants upon the Lutheran church, know nothing of spiritualism, never heard of such o thing, and would not know what it meant if told. The little girl has never been brought into contact with anything of the sort, a.nd does not realize that she,is doing anything remarkable in'thus peering info the future. In fact, she is but a baby, is childish in. everything she does, and THE BAST SEER OF SOUTH CHICAGO. has no conception of anything bcyoivl her own little childish pleasures. ' It is true she does not predict wars, revolutions, changes in government and- the overthrow of dynasties, for they are beyond her comprehension, ,but as she grows older she may be en- PILLS " Having been-subject, for years, to «(instlnatlon, without being able to find much relief, tat last , tried AVer's fills, and testify that 1 Have derived. meat bencAt from their use.

At present she confines herself to predicting sickness in the family end the families of relatives, the arrival of visitors at the house, and things that are to happen to her little playmates. Her mother docs not pretend to understand .the child. As lor the father, he says nothing.' The grandfather, Jovine; thinks she is of the supernatural,, and the neighbors agree with the grandfather. One day when her grandfather wa» visiting at the house Khe asked him for .sooie pennies. 'He replied, in jest: "I 'have none; L'am poor, and can't give pennies to little girls." She quickly answered: "You've got some money in your pocket, and pretty soon, 'when you sell the house, you will have a lot of money the man will give you." . . The grandfather-at the same time was jje-otiatlng * he sale of a hollsc ' a " d a few days afterwards the deal was consummated, but the old man had not said a word to r.ny member of the family on the subject. As early as three years ago Mabel could rend the future in regard to events that were of interest to her: One day she told her mother: "Aunt Anna is coming this afternoon, mamma; so you had better hurry through with your * Another day she said: "Grandma is coming to-morrow, and I am going home with her." In each case the relative came, as prophesied, and Mabel went home with her grandmother, as .she said she would. At another time, when playing with some other children, she said to one ol them: "Elsie, you are going to the circus- your uncle Is going to take you. Sure enough, Elsie went to the circus with her uncle, although she had not known the treat was in store for her. Mabel is also an adept at, telling the nationality of those with whom she ia brought into contact, a peculiarity her parents cannot understand. She can tell nt a glance whether a person is French, English, American or German, but how' she does it-none of the family knows From what source her inspiration comes no one can toll. She is anot- , ural musician and can sing any song sh« ! has ever heard, although she has had nfc .sort of musical training, nnd is also a 1 natural actress and n lover of the bean- tlful in £.ven'JhInjr-_ • The Hottentots are said to rejoice at the appearance of a swarm of locust*, although the.destructive insects devour all the verdure In the district. The natives eat them in such quantities that .they soon grow perceptibly fatter. They also gather the eggs and make of them a kind of brown coffee-colored Easy Leuoni About Money. At first all money was weighed is scales. The first money trade told in the Bible was in silver, "And Abraham weighed to Ephron 400 shekels of sil vee, current, money with the merchant." A shekel was.half an ounce. It was not easy to carry round a pais of scales r.nd weigh out metal each: time there was a trade. So coins were made. A shekel or some weight of silver or of gold was weighed out, melted together and stamped -with a die show* Ing its' weight. Now money could be counted instead of weighed out. Thi» made trading much easier. Anything that makes trading easier betters- trade. Silver was first in general use for coins. But as people became better off nnd had larger trades to make silver ivas too weighty. So gold came into use. As nations have become better oft they have come to use gold more than, silver. The great trading nations now; use the gold standard an-d only the poorer nations the silver standard for their mone£ systems.--??. >'. Worid. Spend them.
