"We are unalterably opposed to every calculated to debase cnr cur- or Impair the credit of our coun- We arc therefore oppoeed to the ti»e 'coinage of silver except by International agreement with the leading '••mxnerciat nations of the world, which lire pledge ourselvefl to promote, and nn- • 4(1 then such gold standard must be pre- «irved. •"AH our silver and paper currency •net be nmlntalned at parity with gold, and we favor all measures de- •%ned to maintain Inviolably the obll- •g»tlonB of tbe United States and all our «wney, whether'coin or paper, at the • yment standard, the standard of tl'e • «ic*t enlightened nations of tbe earth." —Bepubllcan platform. "We demand tie free and unlimited «6tDage of both gold and silver at the ..present legal ratio of 10 to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of fjay •ther nation. We demand that the .•tandard silver dollar sball be i full <Ugal tender, equally with gold, for all '•ebtt, public OEd private, and we fav- ,ir «Tich legislation as-wlll prevent fche .HimoneOzaUon of any kind of legal ten- ,.i«r money by private contract.—Demo- Jrfttlc platform. We demand free and unlimited coln- -..•Ie of silver and gold at the present le- f«l ratio of 16 to 1.—Populist platform, 1892. We bold to the use of -bath gold and •liver as the standard money of the -eonntry, and to the coinage of both gold and silver, without discriminating against either metal or charge for mintage, but the dollar u-olt of coinage of fcoth metals must be of equal intrinsic and exchangeable value or be adjusted •through International agreement or by •Bch safeguards of legislation as Bflall Idea re the maintenance of the parity •f tbe two metal* and the equal power •f ev»iy dollar at all times In the market* and In payment of debt, and we de- •miBd that all paper currency ahull be •kept at par with and redeemable In •Dch coin. WE MUST INSIST UPON THIS POLICY -4.8 ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOB THE PROTEO- OTON OP THE FARMERS AND LABORING CLASSES, THE FIRST MORE MONEY. You iu:iy be a Democrat. You may bo in favor of free silver us a £ouenil proposition. But diil you ever hear of any nation in tiny time- uttomptliijr free coinage exci-pt at the'market'ratioV . ' Can you conceive : of the ruin would follow the attempt to <*lnbll'!-:li free wllirt&c M iiuy tiHibr ratio? Thy ratio Of SHvt-'r to gold is now Si! to 1. Why should tlie United States attempt coinage at 10 to 1? It' silver was.brought up to gold at Hi to 1 then every silver-mine owner in the whole worltl would gain at the expense of the people of Tlie United States. If silver failed to come up to j?okl then every debtor would bo ruined and every business wrecked. Why try the fearful experiment.? If silver is brought, up to par witli cold then we have tlie sniue. money as we have now, ami silver bullion would pell at .the same'price as silver coined. The mine owners would make tlie profit. Why should you uot advocate the purchase of all the mines by tbe United States that the Government might make this profit? • . Or wliy not start with 32 to 1 and" not. attempt to ni!.«e the price of silver)? It' silver rises to tho value of soli! at 1C to 1 then money Is the same as n't, present, and prices remain tlio same. If silver does not rise then it takes that many more silver dollars to buy the same tliinp, ami who is benefited? Free silver is a snare and delusion, nny way you can fix jt, nnd benefits no one but tlie silver mine owners who arc back of It all. But it can ruin and destroy every business iu the country, take work from the wage-earner, take away his. ability to buy farm products, and ruin the filmier who lias a debt of any kind. WIicu business is pood and you flnd there is not enough money to carry it 011 make more. .When business Is bad. little money is accessary to carry It on.' It is a. remarkable fact that tho demand for more money comes when there Is the least use for it. It is not more money for the nation but more for tbe man that influences a man to talk for more raon'ey. You cannot make a man. more prosperous by making more money when business is dull. It Is more business, not more money that he should advocate. When you find business too rushing to get along with the. money In- circulation, ask for- a greater circulating medium, but do not ask-for it till then.

At South Bend he said: "But you ask what If we .have more money how could we get any of it. unless we have something,to .sell. Now, have not you heard that? ; It Is asked ns if it settled the whole-money question. Let me ask you a question In re^ turn. Tell the man that no matter, how much money there Is ,you can't get any of it unless you have some? tiling to sell and you understand that every producer of wealth has some-: tliing to sell. Thnt is a thing they all leave ont of consideration; ask him 1C a man does have something to sell how can he get anything, for !t unless lie finds somebody with the'inoncy to buy what he has to sell." ' • The last statement might have been made by a Bepubllca'b'; speaker. The latter would go on tqi'iell how the pro- chaser would get money with which to buy. Mr. Bryan fails to do so. Tlie lionest method of putting money Into tbe consumer's hand and 'hope into his heart, is through tlie dally, weekly or monthly wages earned by his honest labor or through his farm products. Of what-avall is the passing out of big white dollars to the bullion merchants, as their own dollars, while tlie factories, the farms, the home industries of every kind, are deadened by the work; ings of tlie law that Bryan clmm-^ pioned? Give tlie. Independent work-^ ingmnn work nnd wages lu honest dollars. ' - NEED OF REST. . , ; .

' ' It is claimed that notwithstanding- Li Hung Chang has shown some liberality of views toward modern improvements nnd education, he is at haart n hater of foreigners, and has an abiding- faith in Chinese institutions and methods of government. He is, it is true, a -great admirer of Confucian philosophy, and remembering tbe ciidurinfr history of his people we can hardly wonder at his devotion to the iustitUT tions whicJi have made that history possible. ' When we call to mind the experience China has had with certain western nations, it might not be considered strange if his attachment to foreigners was not very ardcnf; but in all his public life, says John W, Poster in Century, his conduct shows that ho feels tbe need of foreign aid, uml is disposed to give it proper -welcome, and of all Chinese ftntesmen be is the most liberal-minded and free from prejudice. He is far from claiming that the present system of government is perfect. He has, in fact, urged upon the authorities at Peking two im-, portant chang-es which look to a reform of the most serious defects in tbe system; to wit, the withdrawal from tbe viceroys of -provinces of powers which should be exercised only by the imperial government, and -such a change in the method of admission to the public service as will liberalize the examinations, nnd make fitness rather than scholarship the test. There are other changes which be would gladly bring about if he had the power; but, as he confessed to Mo-rquis Ito, "China is hampered by antiquated customs which prevent desirable' reforms." DOLLY MADISON'S TACT. Bow She Managed to Win Everybody*! Heart. It was the tact and genuine kindliness of Dolly Madison that made her one of the most prominent of American women. Several episodes mentioned in Mrs. Goodwin's "Life of Dolly Madi- FOO" are significant of this. At one of her levees, her attention Was drawn to a rustic visitor, a youth, who was evidently suffering all tbe torments of embarrassment. He had at last ventured to help himself to a cup of coffee, when Mrs. Madison walked up and addressed him. In the surprise of .tbe moment, tlie lad dropped tie saucerarid strove to crowd the cup, toto hie .pocket:.. His. tactful hostess, tookno.notice'oflhe accident, except to observe tiafrto such a crowd no one could avoid, being jostled, and straightway- turned the conversation to the boy's family, and ended by sending b*r regards to his excellent mother, and bidding the servant bring another cup of coffee. . On another occasion two old ladiee from the country'arrived at the white house while the family were stijl at breakfast. To the surprise of tlie rural visitors,' the woman they had come to see appeared in a stuff dress of dark gray, protected by a large housewifely white opron, and with a linen-kerchief pinned about her neck. Her simplicity of manner and attire completely swept away their awe, and before departing- one of them found courage to ask: "Perhaps you wouldn't mind if I kissed fi;i>: outside your, room aoor wiicn you are staying in tie house, and a man .behind the ohoir of every giif-st nt tneal time. FIGHT BETWEEN ELKS. How the Patriarch of th» Drove D*mo»- ttrmttd HU Frown*. A writer in the last issue of the American Fic^l bad A vupy interesting paper on "Hunting Big-Game in the Rockies," in which he depict* a combat between the chief of a band of dks and a number of valorous but indiscreet young- bulls of the some family. After leaving- camp and hunting the niouBtains for a distance of four or five milos he came in sight of a fresh sign, followed it up. and soon found a bond of perhaps a hundred elks, cows, calves nnd bulls, going-to tie windward. They SOOT! crept up within 50 to 73 yards of them. There was one old bull among- them who seemed to be chief of the harem. He came out into on open pork and challenged the other bulls to combat. Pop and Van were, lying- flat in the timber talcing- in the circus. The old patriarch would whistle, and soon a young- buJ] would answer him and trot out ready to take up the challenge, and fight for some favorite. They would spar around for some little time, for IxitiDts, then back off and rush together like two "tattering rams, bellow and tear up tbe earth- One such round would usually end the fight, and the youngster would take to the timber, fully satisfied. Another challenge from the old patriarch and another young bull would appear on the ground to take up tbe gauntlet, only to g-et an uwful drubbing and be sent back to the timber cowed. This challenge, was given and .icccpted by four different bulls, and nil were beaten back to their corners and over the line. After two hours of liard fighting- he called time on the old bull and shot him. . ' . WHEN DAYS WILL BE Eventually LONG, mjr M i Eacb Will B» Month. Do you know that the day, which is now only 24 hours long, is slowly increasing in length, and that it will eventually be 25, 26, or even 100 hours in length?

THE CUPEY. A W«t IndUD Tree Tb*t Grow* from .Tr«e Top*.. The cupey, or, as it Is sarcastically called In ttto English possessions, "the attorney," is one of the most curious as it is certainly'the most picturesque denizen of the virgin • forests of tbe West Indian island, says London Tid- Bits. 'It belongs to the poi«sitical family of trees or plants, but, terrible to relate, It invariably with, the baseet. Ingratitude destroys nl-1 life in the unfortunate tree that, cherishes it in its early growth. The seeda ore borne on the wings of the wind, and deposited on the branches of other trees, when they burst into roots, which ore dropped toward, the'ground •!! around, the "nurse" tree. In tim« these roots reach the ground and strike into the soil. From this moment the roots grow stronger and stronger until they resemble a lot of rope ladders thrown over the tree. Jfext the parasite sends down a great cord, which twines round the trunk of the supporting tree, at first ns though in loving embrace, but it grows tighter and tighter, eventually strangling its benefactor out of existence. The "nurse" tree thus killed rots to decay, and from the immense fibrous roots of the destroyer now springs a great trunk, which rises high into the oir. : When the cupey is full grown it presents a magnificent spectacle, for the cord-like roots rise often to 50 or CO feet, and support in midair the vast tree itself; ' tart iaorasrae T eventually be a week -or even-* month in length.
