A covpakison of the treasury tate
ments of money in circulation in the
years IS1 C and l'.X)l shows what baa
taken place. In gold coin there has been
an increase of more than f 164,000.000;
in jrold certificates, nearly fC12.500.OH);
in silver dollars, nearly $15,000,000; in
subsidiary silver, more than fJO.OOO.OV;
in silver certificates, nearly $;4.0il,000;
in United States notes, 1 102.500,000. In
addition to theoe, the act of March, l'.KX),
extending national-bank orgnirjtion,
Las added a volume of more than fl.7,
ti,000 in bank-notes. There was some
decrease in treasury notes and in cur
rency certificates, but the totals of the
statements show a net increase of over
t45,000,000 in the circulating money of
the country, or an increase of nearly 42
per cent. Relatively to the population,
the per capita circulation is now $iS.18,
as against (21.43 in 1S90. All of this is
equivalent to doubling the volume of
currency in about twelve years.
The results are also w jrth noting.

of apprehension than would be felt if it
were based on free silver or fiat money.
Another claim of Bryaniem has been re
futed. It was claimed that the shortage
of money facilitated the gathering of
capital in a few hands and the ultimate
control of money by a syndicate. On
the contrary, we find our inflated period
more prolific of trusts and concentrated
capital than any period of depression
conld possibly have been. Commercial
and industrial benefits from the change
need not be enlarged upon. Politically
it has been demonstrated that the gold
standard ie not a foe of prosperity and
lree silver its only friend. Democrats
are dropping the money issue, and even
populists intimate that they will re-or
ganize a party oi tneir own with no
money clause in the platform.
The reasons are apparent, when it is
considered that if the Bryanites could
have opened the mints to free silver In
1890, and operated them day and night,
they could not have increased the circu
lating medium as it has been swollen in
the past five years. Populists might

A Core For Cholera Infantum.
"Last May," says Mrs. Curtis Baker,
of Bookwalter, Ohio, "an infant child of
our neighbor's was suffering from chol
era infantum. The doctor had given up
all hopes of recovery. I took a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhea Remedy to the house, telling them
I felt sure it would do good if used accor
ding to directions. In two days' time
the child had fully recovered, and is now
(nearly a year since) a vigorous, healthy
girl. I have recommended this Eemedy
frequently and have never known it to
fail in any single instance." For sale by

Tiie Year's Straw berrln.
II. F. Davidson, of the Davidson Fruit
Company, and (i. J. Gesnling, secretary
ot the Hood Iiiver Fruitgrowers' Union
have ftirninhed the following tacts rela
tive to the l'jOl strawberry crop:
"These two shipping concerns this
year shipped 3'.X)0 crates of the 40,000
crates of strawberries shipped from Hood
Kiver, or four-fifths of the entire crop,
They shipped 33 straight carloads undur
refrigeration, and between 15 and 20 cars
by express, or about 50 cars all told. The
cash returns to the growers for their 40,-
OW crates amounted to about Iftf.OOO
A deduction of $2.0.000 for cost of picking
ana crates leaves the groweri about tfiO,
000 above all expenses. The entire acre
age in strawberries in Hood Kiver Val
ley ana White Salmon is about 330.
which would make the average net to
the groweri above all expenses some
thing over $150 pr acre.
The output of Hood River strawber
ries should be gradually Increased until
we have three or four times as many as
we have now. The markets are taking
more each year than they did the pre
vious season, and there will be no trouble
about the markets Increasing with the
production. There was no market this
year that got all it asked for. Both the
Fruitgrowers' Union and the Davidson
Fruit Company made several sales of
strawberries for shipment to the Klon
dike country, and the berriei were re
ported as arriving there in good condi-
tion, and selling at 5 per pound box."

The father of a 17 year old young lady,
in town this week, told the following
story on a young man who sloptied at bis
home one night lutulv. Tho young nmn
called on his daughter lo spend the even
ing, and when he got ready to leave he
realized that a heavy rain storm was
raging. Ue had no umbrella or rubber
coat and when the girl's father asked
him to remain at the house ho readily
consented. He is a very bashful young
man, and next morning when he was In
vited to a seat at the table very reluct
antly accepted. He was very nervous
and agitated. He sat opposite a mirror
and discovered that he had forgotten to
comb his Lair; then he dropped his fork
on the floor and as he stooped to pick it
up, he upset his coffee. Mutters went
from bad to worse until finally In despair
the young man quit eating and put his
hands under the table. The loose of the
table cloth was lying in his lap, and
when he touched it he turned pale. He
thought it was his shirt, and in his ner
vous excitemknt had forgotten to put the
garment inside his trousers. That ac
counted for the smiles and his embarass-
ment. There was no time to lose. He
hurriedly stuffed the supposed shirt In
side his trousers. Two minutes later.
when the family arose there was a crash.
The dishes lay in a broken mass on the
floor; the young man pulled two feet of
table cloth out of hia trousers and fled
through (he door. He is yet in the
woods back of his home near Damascus.
The young lady lie called on ii open for
engagement to a less nervous young man.
