from our whole wheat
flour. It is made from
the wnole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour is not so
white as that made from
k the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of the wheat and
is much sweeter than

Ohboox Oitv, Or., Aug. 22. (To
the Editor.) In the arguments of the
advocates of the gold standard, It seems
that two important points they try to
make against the free and unlimited coin
age of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, are :
(1) The coinage value of silver would be
brought down to the commercial value,
giving us a dollar with the purchasing
power of 63 cents, or, in other words, we
would have a 63-cent dollar. (2) That
the silver agitation is in tho interest
of the silver-mine owner, and in the
event of the passage of a free-coinage
law, ho would be enabled to take 53 cents'
worth of silver to the mint and have it
coined into a 100-cent dollar, thus mak
ing H7 cents by the transaction, or,
rather, having the government give him
47 cents just for the privilege of coining
his 53 cents' worth of silver.
Now, if the silver dollar was worth
only 53 cents, or the commercial value
of the amount of silver contained in the
dollar, how is the silver-mine owners
going to be benefited? Unless it was a
100-cent dollar, how would he receive 47
cents from the government whenever he
took 53 cents' worth of silver to the 2lnt?
If it was a 100-cent dollar, what does all.
the talk about the cheap dollar, the dis
honest dollar, the repudiutor's dollar
Again, if this silver agitation is in tire
interest of the silver-mine owners, how
would he be benefitted If when he took 63
cents' worth of silver to the mint he got
back a dollar with purchasing power of
only 53 cents?
