Oregon City needs an institution of this
kind, and Homo of our wealthy citizens
could in no better or nobler way seek
. historic immortality.

Tim theory has for years been held
by chemists that fundamentally all
mutter is coniiMised of the sumo same
primitive substance, the differences, re
sulting in the 00 qdd elements, being
due to atomic combination of the
molecules. It is not a matter of astonish
ment, therefore, among scientists, that
Pr. S. If. Emmons of New York has
found a method by which silver may ho
transformed in'o gold, lly completely
breaking up silver molecules into their
constituent atoms, and uniting them
again, he has produced u metal ho
names argentarium, which possesses
properties akin to those of gold and
silver, and, didiit nut have t!ie density
of silver instead of gold, would pans the
gold test of any govei inneiit mint in
the world, lly transforming all the sil
ver into gold, the ratio of 10 to 1, or any
other, would he relegated to the history
of the past as childish bugaboo.
Tun potato has of late years fallen into
something of the contempt with which
twits considered in Europe on it lirst
introduction in the 10th century. The
scientists of the cuisine, such as Pr.
Edson and Mrs. Purer, are warning
eaters not to depend too much upon the
potato for nutriment. Leguminous food
should largely supplement its use.
Furthermore, overindulgence in a potato
diet conduces to dyspepsia, and herein
may he revealed the org n of the
prevalence of that distressing complaint
in Anieiiui. The pota'o is not a root,
as so many are accustomed to stylo
it; it is an underground stem, swollen
by accumulated starch stored up for
future use. Its exact place in tlio
dietary bus not yet been settled. It is a
curious thing to note, too, that to the
same genus (Solatium) lielongs tobocco,
which was given to Europe nt about
tho sumo time as the potato. Eat beans.
Tim purchase of n farm by the county
' on which to colonize the paupers it sup
ports, would relieve tho county treasury
of those who aro able to work but will
not; however, as economy in expendi
tures should lie tho first consideration, it
would bo unwiso to purchase a 32D-ucre
farm for tho purpose when a 40-uere
farm would answer as well and even
better. A largo farm would require two
teams at any rate, and one or two extra
hired hands, which would give oppor-
tunity for jobbery and wasting of monev J
whereas a small farm could lie conducted
entirely by the man in charge and tho
paupers, with ono team. In addition
the purchase of largo farm, like that
of W.W. Myers, at S000, in warrants at
8 per cent., would increase the county's
indebtedness much more than a farm
costing about one-third of that. As the
paupers cost the county during the last
sis months $2900, it is plain that on a
small farm, where they could be made
partly self-supporting ami their food
bought at wholesale rates, the cost would
lie considerably less.

WHO HAS THE MONEY f
"Farm Journal" Asks the Help of
Farmers to Answer the Question
The total value of all cereals, tobacco
and cotton grown in the United States
in 1891, was $2,539,434,476.
The total value of these same products
grown in 1895, was $1,810,712,527.
This shows a shrinkage in value of
farm crops in 1805 under those of 1891 of
$728,721,949. (Crop values and farm
values have been steadily shrinking
The cost of labor, taxes, insurance, in
terest, repairs, etc., were nearly as great
in 1895 as in 1891, so there must be a
loss of at least $500,000,000 to the Ameri
can farmer in the year 1895. Now, we
want to know who has that money?
By a careful study of the statistics,
native and foreign, we learn that nearly
all tho governments, and national and
private banks of Europe, have been in
creasing their stock of gold, in the ag
gregate a sum not less than $250,000,000;
that the English exchequer is full and
running over; that the profit of Great
Britan alone from her foreign trade was
$250,000,000 greater than in previous
years, that she is spending $109,000000
of this sum in battle ships and naval
armaments, and that steamships have
been busy all summer hauling gold out
of the United States. ($74,000,000 in
eleven months )
Much complaint comes to us from all
parts of this country of a great scarcity
of money ; props are abundant but prices
very low ; many of the exchanges of the
people are being carried on by barter,
by trading eggs and butter for sugar and
coffee, fruits and vegetables for boots
and calicoes; and it is a well-known
fact that there was withdrawn from cir
culation during the first six months of
the present year $85,000,000, and since
July 1, 1895, no less a sum than $154,
000,000. Therefore, in behalf of the
farmers of the United States, who are
great sufferers by the above conditions,
we demand to know :i.
who has that money ?
We want those $500,000,000 accounted
for, and we want farmers to help us find
out what has become of them and how
they may be recovered. ,
Possibly the Corner in Gold has some
thing to do with it I If the farmers'
crops, when they came to be sold were
measured by the gold London Shylock
owns, might this not be the reason the
price is so low? The dollar now seems
to be able to buy two bushels of wheat
instead of one; soon.it will buy three
bushels. As Shylock tightens his grip
on gold, which measures property, down
goes the price of crops, and
Down goes the Farm, ' '
Down goes the Farmer,'
Down goes the Merchant,
Down goes the Manufacturer,
Down goes the Laborer, ,
Down goes the Doctor,
Down goes the Carpenter,
Down goes the Blacksmith,
Down goes the Poor Debtor,
Down goes Independence, .
Down goes Liberty,
Down goes the Flag,
Down goes everybody else and every
thing else but the Ddlur and London
Once more we demand to know
WHO HAS THAT MONEY ?
