Immigration will flood in upon the

of this influx is the Met that the North

The veteran journalist, Erastus
Brooks, says that he has -seen 120
daily newspapers established in New
York, and of these only six are now
in existence. He estimates that $25,

Are farmers' interests as jealously
guarded in legislative halls as other in
terests! Manifestly not. And the
worst of it is, the farmers themselves
are to blame for it. In the first place,
they are not properly represented in
Hie legislature; that is. too few of the
representatives are interested directly
or indirectly in agriculture. It is the
fault of the farmers themselves that
they do not select, vote for, and elect
men who will jealously guard their in
terests. Then, again, farmers re en
tirely toov indifferent to what is going
en in the legislature when it is in ses
sion. Bills are introduced, discussed,
passed, become laws, and go into effect
before they realize what has been done.
Bven the legislatures, constituted as
they are at present with few farmer
members,- would do much better if the
farmers wold interest themselves more
m looking after them.
A DEMOCRAT IS A FREE. TRADER.
It is beginning to liea recognized
fact that a "protection democrat" is an
impossibility.1 It having been . an
nounced that a gentlemen who is not a
thorough going tree trader was about
to contest the nomination for United
States senator from Missouri, tfejf St.
Louis Republic, the democratic organ
of the west, is moved to say that
"there is and can be no such thing as
a protection democrat It is a contra
diction in terms, precisely as it would
be to speak cf an ipfidel christian."
This is plain and outspoken,' and ex
presses the real sentiments of the
leaders of the party. A few years ago
the free traders who are now ruling
the democracy with a rod of iron were
willing to allow the impression to go
abroad that a person could be a demo
erat anda protectionist at one and the
same tim. That was when the free
traders did not wish to give too violent
a shock to the protection sentiment
that still existed in the party.
It! L. Taylor, the barber, now shaves for
THE TRUE REASON.

for lour years we nau duus noining
but fighting ships. In 1865, when
the war ended, sn attempt was made
to build American steam trs for the
transatlantic trade. But prices of
labor 4and materials in this country
were still keyed up to the pitch caused
by the 'paper-money issue; it cost a
fortuue to build a first-class passenger
steamer. And as soon as'it became
known in England that American ship
builders were about to go to . work
again, the British government, which
had allowed its steamship subsidies to
run down during the war, immediately
fell to increasing them. They were
increased nearly 40 per cent in 1866.
In 1870 we followed suit with a sub
sidy to the Pacific Mail. England
countered by incseasing hr appropria
tions in aid of the mercantile navv to
$6,000,000 a year, and we abandoned
the contest Great Britain made no
secret of her purpose to hold the car
rying trade of the world at any cost,
and the United States meekly sub
mitted to be ruled out France made
a bid for a share in 1881, and Ger
many followed suit in 1888, with sub
sidies of $3,000 000 a year to ocean
steamers. We let the trade take care
of itself. It was this, and not the
tariff, which crused the disappearance
of the American flag from the ocean.
The consideration of those v ho

the railways and telegraph of the
country is gntly directed to the "man
agement" of the mail in the recent
blockade. 18 there anything of merit

The drum is also indestructible,

the centuries, it beats the Chiist-

grown-up people's ears to be deaf

prospect of a universal pea?e.
The toy sword also stands its
ground; it is the nursery symbol of
the ineradicable vice of our race

are sure to be found among the

Cured by Cuticura
If T. had known of the Cctticura Kesie
DIKS t venty eiUt years ago it would have
saved me 5200. CO (two-hundred dollars) and
an immense amount of suffering. My dis
ease (psriisia) commenced on my hed in a
xpot not larger than a cent. It ; spread
rapidly all over my body and got under my
nails. The scales would drop off of me all
the time, and my suffering was endless and
without relief. One thousand dollars would
not tempt me to have this disease over
ayain. I am a poor man lint feel rich to lie
relibved of what some of the doctors said
was leprosy, some ringworm, psoriasis, etc.
I took . . . and . .. Sarsaparillas over one
year and a half, but no cure. I cannot
praise the Cuticura Kemedies too much.
They have made my skin as clear and free
from scales as a baby's. All I used of them
were three boxes of CuTIcURA, and -three
bottles of i'uticuka Resolvknt, and two
ckes of Cuticura Soap. If you had been
hern ami said you would have cured me for
$200.00, you would have had the money.
I looked like the picture in your hook of
psoriasis (picture number two, "How to
Cure Skin diseases"), but now I am as clear
as any person ever was. Through force of
habit I rnb my hands over my arms and
legs to scratch once in a white, but to no
purpose. I am all well. I scratched
twenty eiyht years, and it got to be a kind
