THIS RKAL HSU.
The hell of fire aud brluwtou (of
which Hit ministers prtcii) Is uoi
much feared by the jhhIo, but the real
hU from which modern men and wont'
u actually flee la "poverty." The rich,
who prate of the rugged, robust, hearty
joya of "poverty ami health" being ueb
a blessing, uver for a moment let it
enter into their nilud to give up their
shattered nerves, dyspepala, aoft cosh
Ion and other luxurte and try a dose
of "poverty." It would be an eaay
thing for them to do, but they never do
It They ait at the feast ot mammon
and the poor Imitate their example In
wild itruggle to get there. What the
poor want la loaders to help them from
their poverty. Men of learning, keen
brain and energy. Working men aud
Women must organize for their own
rights iu the true principle of trade
unionism, not for strike aud unjust
demands. One of the fundamental
points of reform Is place of pure enjoy
toent. We give the poor grave-yard
aud schools, but uo place stands open
to welcome them to pleasure. Our very
laws don't penult them to enjoy Uteiu
elves on the street. We must give
them place for their leisure hours, al
Ways under the guardianship of good
manners and orudcuce. aud thus lift
them to a realisation of a higher stand
ard of life. Leaders are wanted tor this
wotk for this beautiful, bloodless rev
olution, the uprising of the people for
In new Zelaad the system of taxatlou
exempts all personal property i-xcept
Improvement above 175,000 In value
and comprise an Income and inheri
tance tax. The system has rendered It
unprofitable to hold large tract of wild
lnud out of use, as has been doue by rich
non-resident owners, aud has in other
ways proven a great relief to the poor
people, and a wonderful promoter of
prosperity. Business of all kluds has
revived wonderfully, everyone I at
work, wages have advanced, new lands
are being Improved, railway line ex
tended, people are rapidly getting out
of debt, and all without any other cause
than lifting taxation from lubor aud
placing It on dog In the-manger land
lordism. The tax system Is practically
the single tax and it workings Justify
all claims of single tax advocates.
Much ha been said and written
about people over-worklug themselves
and wearing themselves out, but
great deal of this advice Is the merest
"rot" and when given to the young
man Just starling out In life has a very
damaging effect. Better tell the
young man to set his aim in life high,
and labor hard, early and late, In rain
and shine, and aehelve success. Better
be found worn out in trying to get. up
the rounds of the ladder, than to live
to an old age and have nothing to
show for a life spent on this earth.
MORE ABOUT THAT FLOUR TRUST.
Editor West Bide: In a commu
nication published in the lust issue of
the West Bidk In reply to what I said
a few weeks slnceiibout the Oregon and
Washington flour trust, the author
strives by bombast and Insinuation
(neither of whlcli is ever recognised as
argument) to disprove the correctness
of ray statement. He claims my "ar
tide" on the subject was "iictltious In
it assumption and could not 1 ao-
, centcd in Its conclusions."
Now I did not "assume" anything
In the premises, but simply stated facts
In the case, aud now challenge prcxf to
the cootrary, and facts are practically
conclusions that must be accepted even
with regret. This correspondent far
ther says that "the Idea of a flour trust
Is the work of a conjurer and speaks
well for the Imagination of your cor
respondent" I might find It somewhat
difficult to properly define the word
"trust," but it does not require the skill
of a conjurer nor a high order of Ituagi'
nation to prove that there has recently
been a marked advance In the price of
flour, with a very noticeable decline in
the price of wheat, and that the ad'
vance In flour followed close after the
oriranizutlon of what the gentleman
Is pleased to call ft "Mlilera Associa
tion." Wei perhsps millers associa
tion would sound Detter man nour irust,
though the methods of the association
seem to have the same effect on our
pur a do thoa of a plain trust, and
verities the saying that "a ross by any
other nam would smell w sweet" It
I farther stated that oue poMted with
my "fertility of wind ought to write
stork for. the Youth's Companion."
Not believing that the gentleman
would offer a high oomplltueut to oue
whom beholds In the light of con
jurer, with morbid Imagination, I am
forced to conclude that h Is woefully
Iguoraut of the tru character of the
Youth's Companion, and for his en
Itghtemuent would say that the Com
panion. I not a child's story Prf,
that uothiug Is ever given room In Its
columns that doe not posses the high
est order of moilt.
This correspondent claims that "the
dealgu of the miller awouiatloa 1 not
to limit the manufacture of flour and
regulate prloe, but to handle the sur
plus product of the nulls at the least
expense to the millers," aud that "fair
minded men will see the need of such
an organisation and wish It success."
I am not "conjurer" enough to deter
mine how any man can wish success to
an organisation that unnecessarily for-
on extra cost to the chief article of his
Well, the association (not trust) Is
formed, and In the enjoyment of all the
advantages It expected to acquire by
organisation, so wltn the cost of pro
duction reduced and the expense of
"handling the surplus" lessened, for
what rcfson I wish to ask Is the price
of flour advanced? "Uuder the old
plan," say the correspondent, "large
order (for flour I suppose) were forced
into the hand of the great milling
oompaulea, and for such trad thesuiall
oouceru were powerle competitor."
(Pardon the paradox.) "By combina
tion the miller association hope to
overcome the difficulty." ,
Why were large orders forced Into
the hand of the great milling ootup
nk under the "old plant" Manifest ly
because the groat milling companies
oould sell cheaper titan the small oou
ceru, aud so, by "combination" the
small concerns propose to meet the
lower price of the great milling com
panic and thus be competitor for the
"large-order" trade, but in tills it eem
they were mistaken for Instead of being
able to announce a lower price for flour
the combine has been compelled T to
raise the price of the surplus regard!
of the fact that wheat Is now much
lower than when the combination of
the "small concerns" was cousumated
Conslstancy Is not a eousplcuou Jewel
in the millers' diadem.
The gentlemau claims that "the man
ufacturer Is not wholly to blame for the
advauce in flour" and say "th price
I not regulated by the variations forced
ukiu the wheat market by the gamb
ling fraternity, but by the cof o jr
duetim. Now a the cost of wheat
mast be the chief expense in the pro
duction of flour, I wish to ask upon
what prluoiple of honesty and fair dial
ing can the price ot flour be advanced
while the chief cost of IU production I
being dally lessened?
In conclusion th gentleman says
that "a little Investigation might have
convinced me that the merchant and
not the manufacturer deserves the lar
ger share of my fulml nations and that
there I uo flour trust hovering over the
laud ready to swoop down ou the poor,
and that he has no light with the poll'
tic of my article."
I cannot think our merchant are In
any way to blame for the recent raise
In the price of flour, but as this oorre
spondeui puts the greater part of Uie
blame on them, they can answer for
themselves. It I not, however, too late
to make the Investigation suggested.
I am truly thankful to know that
there la not a flour trust ready to "swoop
down upon the poor," because sooie-
thlnk has already swooped down on u
that answers every purpose of the most
approved brand of trust
The claim that the gentleman has no
light with the politic of my article
might lead me to Infer that be Is friend
ly to the populist cause but that oaunot
be. for he must know that if there I
anything the populists propose to fight
to the death, It is the Insolent tyranny

If there Is, la this vale ot tears, a
more prolific source of misery than the
rheumatism twinge, we hsve yet to
hear of It. People are born with a
tendency to rheumatism, Just a they
are with one to consumption or to
scrofula. , Might causes may develope
this. As soon as the agonizing com
plaint manifest Itself, recourse should
be had to Hostetter's Blomach Bitters,
which checks Its further Inroads and
banishes the rheumatic poison from
the system. This statement tallies
exactly with the testimony of physi
cians who have employed this fine
blood depurlent In their private prac
