By the free coinage of silver Is meant
that any person owning silver may
take It to trie mints of tbe United States
6d,bave It coined into full legal tender
money. It does not allow that this
siut be done free of charge. The gov
ernment may or may not make a charge
for coinage. The term "free" does .not
necessarily mean a coinage free of ex
pense, bnt the freedom of the Individu
al to have the silver comeu into money,
jot as any wheat owner la free to take
bis grain to a mill and have it ground
The gold owner has this freedom at
tbe mints. He may freely take bis
gold there and have It coined. The
silver owner could do the game thing
previous to 1873. and no one np to that
time questioned the wbdom of the law.
Since then it has not been so, and all
the free coinage men now demand thai
silver be given tbe eatne right at the
mint that it had previous to 1673, tbe
same that gold still enjoys. We bold
that the gold owner Is no better than
the silver owner, and that silver money
la just as good as gold money; and that
to have gold and silver both as money,
as it was previous to 1873, is better for
the people, aa it enlarges tbe money
supply, doubles the debt and tax pay
ing power of the people, gives better
prices for products and fuller employ
ment to labor. Progressive Farmer.

Tbe Athena Republican thus philos
ophizes on tbe value of its city's war
rants, which are at present below par:
"There is no reason why our city war
rants are not better than national bank
notes which are also"promises to psy."
The city notes are exactly 7 per cent
tbo beat from the fact that they draw 7
per cent, interest and the bank's prom
issory note draws nointerest. Another
reason that they are better. is tbe fact
that tbey are safer. Who ever beard
of a city bursting? Banks are, bursting
everyday. Tbe simple fact that our
warrants do not command their "face"
and probably could not be readily
cabbed at 50 per cent, discount, is en
tirely due to tbe present money strin
gency. There is not money enough in
circulation to conduct the daily business.
Then tbe warrants are too large to pass
as a circulating medium. Let tbe city
council get together and call in all out
standing "promises to pay" and issue
"promises to pay" in their stead In
sums of $1. to $5. and tbey will be re
ceived more readily in this community
in paying for all debts, public and pri
vate, or in exchange than national bank
notes, endorsed by one man, and bear
ing no interest, when tbe municipal
government notes are endorsed by the
whole city, redeemable in gold, and
guarantee to pay interest at 7 per cent,
per annum. Which would you take?
Tbe Republican would take all the city
warrants it can get in exchange for

"Only a girl," growled 2f oab ParUiouse,
turning contemptuously away when Miss
Deborah Soryea brought tbe tiny morsel
of humanity, wrapped up hi a faded flan
nel shawl, to show to him as be sat before
tbe big wood fire in tbe farmhou.e kitchen.
"Why couldn't It ha been a boy?"
"Bring her to me," said Mrs. Parkhouse's
weak, tremulous voice from among the pil
lows. "My little girl I My own daughter!
What did he say, Debbyf Wasbepleasedr"
"Well no I can't say he was," says Deb
rah, rubbing her nose.
And Mra. Parkhouse, whose gentle soul
had naught of affinity to the Are noisy boys
and their gruff, material minded father,
laid her cheek against the little baby girl's
and silently gave thanks.
Tor," thought the mother, "she will be
all my own."
Dorothy Parkhouse jrrew np, as it were.
In the shadow. It was true that her moth
er loved her with a silent idolatrous sort of
devotion, but with the loud voiced father
and the five riotous boys she was evidently
"one too many."
"If It wasn't for mother," thought Dor
othy, curling up the little chlll,feetthat
tbe farmer had decided "there wasn't no
use in buyin new shoes for as long as tho
old una hung together," "I shouldn't want
The next year-Dora's eleventh summer
an artist came out into the rural wilder
nesses sketching "studies" for his winter's
work and boarded for a few weeks at
Farmer Parkhouse's. Dora watched him
aa Aladdin of old might have watched the
marvelous productions ot the magician.
"I believe I could do that," said Dora,
with a voice that fluttered with her flut
tering breath. "Mr. Ryner, I have saved
6 pennies. m Would you be .good enough to
buy me a "pencil like yours when you, go
down to the village tomorrow? "
Mr. Ryner looked around with a good
"T&ke one of mine, Cinderella," he said
and threw her a piece of paper and pencil,
and then he went on with his drawing.
Dora worked on iu silence by hla side, so
rapt and absorbed in her occupation that
she never noticed when he glanced over her
"Faithlnotsobad'saidhe. "Is this the
first you have done?"
"Yes, sir, the very first."
Mr. Ryner said no more, but he gave
Dora a lesson every day after that until she
had learned to handle her pencil with no
mean degree of skill.
Dorothy Parkhouse had been an ugly in
fant, a plain, unattractive child, but it la
not always possible to judge of the flower
by the folded bud. She grew un rarely.
daintily pretty, with brown hair, blue gray
eyes and a face like a wild rose.
But Bezekiah Parkhouse did not notice
her any more than he noticed the cat in
the chimney corner, and he never waa
more astonished in his life than when
George Elden, whose father owned the best
sawmill in the county, asked him to use
his Influence with his sister in his behalf.
Hezekiah went home and communicated
the great news to Dorothy as an eastern
emissary might be supposed to tell the
humblest slave of the harem that the sul
tan had cast a favorable eye upon her.
"Weill" cried Farmer Parkhouse as soon
as he had sensed up the tidings, "Dorothy'a
tortin's made now, sure enough."
"Not in that way," said Dorothy calmly.
"I shall not marry Mr. Elden."
"You won't marry him!" roared Farmer
"But I say you shall if I havetodrag you
to the altar myself 1" he said.
Dora said no more, but the next morning
she was gone, and all the remaining trace of
her waa a little penciled billet, pinned to the
sleeve of her mother's calico morning dress,
which bore these brief lines:
Mother, I'm going to try mr own luck In the
world. When I have made my fortune, I'll
come back after yoo. Keep up good course
and don't for a moment doubt that I will keep
"Well." ejaculated Mr. Ryner as Dora
presented herself before him and told her
simple tale, "what do you suppose you're
going to do, little one?"
"I don't know, sir," said Dora simply.
"Tho ravens fed Eliiah."
His wife gavo her some breakfast, and
then the kindly artist took her to a place
where other girls were drawing pictures on"
blocks of wood for a great publishing house.
"Try your hand at this," said Mr. Ryner.
"I won't Insure you a fortune at first, but
you'll get on if you are painstaking and
, Dora tried, and at the week's end she
found herself the possessor of a sum of
money that exceeded her wildest hopes.
"Why," Bhe cried, "Hezekiah don't getas
much aa this for his week's work on the
"Possibly," said Mr. Ryner dryly. "You
see, my girl, you have talent, and Hezekiah
has only strength and muscle."
It was in August when Dora Parkhouse
"ran away," and it was a bleak Octnhrr
night when, she once more approached the
cluster of butternut trees that surrounded
the house. The light flickered faintly from
the kitchen window as she walked briskly
Suddenly she stopped. A figure stood
before her at tho forks of the roads. Its
garments fluttered in the wind, and one
hand was pressed to its brow,
"Mother!" she cried aloud.
"Doral Dora! is it you? I was going to
look for you, child. They beat me, they
turned meout of doors, but I knew I should
And she sank sobblnsr on her danrrf.j.
"Ibave come home Just in time," said
Dora, folding the frail, quivering figure In
her arms. "Mother, dear, we will be all the
WorUl to each other henceforward."
And from that moment Noah Parkhouse
and bit flvo tall sons never saw Dorothy or
her mother again.
Dora has a bright little home, sustained
and kept sunshiny by her own industry
and Mrs, Parkhouse is serenely happy '
