In a public address issued by a com
mittee of farmers in Oowley county,
KansaB, they say : "The lesson of com
bining for mutual benefit must be learned
by the farmer or he is lost."
Moke French champagne is consumed
in New York City each year than is made
In France. One is compelled to wonder
where the rest of it comes from, that
which is drunk in Oregon City for in
stance. OiNK hundred and eleven ships of all
classes are in this year's naval program
for France. This keeps her far ahead of
RuHsia and Germany and second only
to England as to her navy. Consider
ing the relative territory and resources
of the two countries France is putting
forth a greater effort even than England.
Kkib Hardie, member of the British
parliament, says: "Socialism offers the
only way of escape. Monopoly is in
evitable, and the question at issue all
over the world is whether this monopoly
in the means of life 1b to be 'privately
owned and controlled and conducted
soluly and exclusively with the object of
p ming money in the pockets of the
shareholders, or ia to be owiapJ and con
trolled by the nation and conducted so as
to produce the bigheBt possible happi
ness and the greatest personal freedom."
Rev, Dr. Parkhurbt, in a recent ad
dress, thug expressed his opinion of
New York City: "If Sodom and Go
morrah were near New York City and I
to move, I'd move to one of them in
preference to living in New Yortt City."
If the worthy doctor found the moral
temperature of even these health resorts
too frigid, he Bhould spend the dog days
in that elyslum of which it haB been fit

"When we've been there ten thousand
Much hotter than the sun,
We've no less days to roast and blaze
TIihu when we first begun."
A special study of heredity has boon
milo by Professor Fellmanof Bonn Uni
versity, Germany. He traced the ca
reers of children, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren in all parts of the
present German Empire until he was
able to present tabulated biographies of
the hundreds descended from some orig
inal drunken vagabond. Notable among
the persona described by him is Frau
Ada Jurke, who was born in 1740, and
was a drunkard, a thief, and a tramp
for the last forty years of her life, which
ended i n 1800. Hor di'scendan a num
bered 834, of whom 709 were tiaced in
local records from youth to death. One
hundred and six out of the 709 were
born out of wedlock. There were 144
beggars, and 62 more who lived from
charity. Of the women, 181 led disrep
utable lives. There were in this family
70 convicts, 7 of whom were sentenced
for murder. In a period of Bourn 75
years this one family rollod up a bill of
costs in almshouses, prisons, and cor
rectional institutions amounting to
OXE IilO LABOR VXIOX.
With the idea of forming one big labor
union of 2,000,000 members, President
L, R. Thomas of the pattern-makers,
Business Agent William A. Shaw of the
machinists, District Master Workman
John Fernau of the knights of labor,
President Simon Burns of the window
glass workers, President John Kunzler
of the flint glass workers, President T. J.
Shaffer of the iron, steel and tin work
era, and BecreUry J. W. Pryle of the
structural iron workers, met in Pittsburg
It is proposed to hold a national con
vention, at which representatives of the
various labor organizations will bo pres
ent, ill Chicago, July I, for the purpose
of formulating plans to bring all the
trades unionists in this country under
one federal head. The delegates at this
convention will represent nearly 2,000,.
000 men directly aud iudirectly con
Iiected. with the gigantic combinations
that have been ushered into existence
during the last two years.
It is claimed tbe leaders of the work-
ingmen are alarmed over tbe character
and enormity of the combines, and they
are inclined to the opinion that the com
bination oi such vast capital bodes no
good to them.

'The Philadelphia North American, re
publican , in a recent issue gives a dis
couraging desciiption of the depression
which prevails in the textile trade
It makes the following summary :
No. of textile employes in Phila... 75,000
No. at steady work 20,000
No. on "half" or "three-quarter"
time . 35,000
No. idle... 15,000
No unaccounted for 5,000
CAUSES OF DEPRESSION .
1. Overpiodoction during prosperity.
2. Underconsumption due to low
3. The war in China.
4. Competition of "substitute" com
5. Change in styles.
6. Change in centres of textile indus
try. If we had a low tariff the protection
ists wodld recommend a high tariff as a
remedy ; if we bad bimetalism the gold
standard would be proposed as a pana
cea, but as we have a high tariff and a
gold standard this depression will be ex
plained as one of those natural and nec
essary conditio ns which cannot be pre
vented by foresight or remedied by legis
lation. It comes, too, at a time when
the stock markets are booming and when
the speculators are boasting that rail
road stocks have gained more than five
hundred millions in market value within
a few months, '
Attracted by the stock speculations,
reports from New York are to the ef
fect that never before nad the city been
so crowded with strangers for any con
siderable length of time. The crowd
had gathered not to make a holiday, but
to get rich. It had been drawn from all
parts of the country by reports of specu
lative activity in Wall street, being
made up almost wholly of speculators.
One report says: "The extravagance
of the time has never been equaled.
The idea seems to be tiiat every
thing will rise in value and keep on ris
ing ; that there is no top notch, and no
chance of falling. It is said that the
old hands at the game have begun to be
afraid and are standing aside, but they
are not missed. Everybody wh can
raise a margin is buying, and as so many
are gathering in profit there is no dearth
of spenders, The hotels, the restau
rants, . the theaters, the ehops, are
crowded with throngs who demand the
best and pay for it. No holiday season
has equaled the lavishness of spending
on the part of those who have grown
able to, so suddenly and easily."
Lady patrons of the stock exchange
were by no means few, nor are their pur
chases on slight value. A representative
of the N.Y. fciun who visited a "private
office" where women assemble to spec
ulate, found 75 of them there at one
time. The visit was made on the invita
tion of a member of the firm occupying
the office, who had said: "You go down
to the Btock exchange and you think
that there is a good deal of activity. A
stranger may be pardoned for thinking
that hell had broken loose. If you'll
come up into my office for a short time
and take in what ia going ou you may
be pardoned for concluding that a con
siderable number of the Furies have
gone on a picnic." Many of those women
have speculated themselves rich and
live ou the fat of the land in grand style.
During the recent pandemonium of
stock speculation, the way-downtown
hotels were crowded nights to their ut
most capacity. Not only were there
many people attracted to town by it, but
the overworked brokers' clerks and
bookkeepers camped downtown nighta.
Some of the largest downtown hotels
had every available space filled with
beds and cots night after night.
It was a hot time in New York and
some gut badly burned. It Is cooler now.
Yes, August Flower still has the
largest sale of any medicine iu the civ
ilized world. Your mothers and grand
mothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness.
Doctors were scarce, and they seldom
heard of Appendicitis, Nervous Prostra
tion or Heart Failure, etc They used
August Flower to clean out the system
and stop fermentation of undigested
food, regulate the action of the liver,
stimulate the nervous and organic action
of the system, and that is all they took
whon feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. Ym only
need a few doses of Gren'a August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you sat
isfied there is nothing serious the matter
with you. Get Green's Prize Almanac
