The gold standard newspapers of the

the world collapsed. Verily, wheat and
silver go together. Roseburg Review.
Ahtwk Kkwkll, the late silver candi

They are feeding raisins to horses in
Fre3no and the change from barley is
both successful as to the horses and
profitable to the man. Twelve pounds
of raisins is equal to twenty pounds of
barley and raisins are only worth $20
a ton againBt $10 more . for barley. So
far as heard the animals have made no
protest against the change of diet.
That is nearly as had as burning corn for
coal in Kansas. Sacramento News.
The vote cast ot the late election was
quite Bhort, and did not exceed that
thrown for supreme judge in June, 1890
85.000. This is a falling off of over
10.000 as compared with the vote of Mc
Kinley and Bryan. That there was
much BDathv on the Cth Inst, is evi
denced by the very large number of
stav-at-homes. The republicans turned
out en masse and cast almost, a solid vote
for their nominees. Had the war with
Spain not completely overwhelmed the
financial and other economic questions
there would have boen a decidedly dif
ferent result. .
Is Massachusetts the saving bank
deposits average $200 per head of the

Atkinson that if postal savings banks
were established, in twenty years the
average deposits in the United i'tate
might be $100 per capita, an aggregate
sum ot $7 500,000,000. Mr. Atkinson
does not say so, but this immense sum
would have to be invested and would be
sufficient to accomplish the nationaliza

"I am an old run down soldier, my
whole system being out of order and my
right side partially paralyzed. I have
tried various remedies and realized only
temporary relief. I have been taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla and Hood's Pills, and
have derived more real benefit from them
than anything I have tried. My wife has
been greatly helped by Hood's Sarsapa
rilla. She was all run down and her
system much out of order. My two little
boys recovered quickly from the effects
of diphtheria by taking Hood's Sarsapa
rilla, which rid them of troublesome sores
and symptoms of the croup. They are
now well and hearty." W. F. Burnett,

the ranks of tlio unemployed are kept

made in diminishing their numbers. In
former years it was customary for manu
facturers to retain during the entire year

enforced by the courts, but tho debt

declared unconstitutional by the jsupremo

lution in a note or mortgago that the
debt shall be paid only in gold coin of
the present standard value, and that the
decree aud judgment thereon shall to
