Jan. 28. 1802. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 Topeka (Kan.) Advocate: Under the present system a farmer goes to a bank and places a mortgage on his farm for $1,000 bearing 10 per cent per annum running five years. The mortgage is worth to the bank $1,000, with $500 ad ded for interest, or $1,500. The money is worth to the farmer $1,000 less the §500 paid as interest, or only $500--« clear loss to the farmer. Chicago Farmers Voice: First seek political ireedom and all other things will be added unto you, and as soon as the psrty boss becomes convinced that the farmer will not cringe like a whipped hound at the crack of the par- ty lash, he will himself become most cringing and subservient of beings, and be ready to do the bidding of those he dominated over so arrogantly. Colorado Farmer: What we need is better laws. We cannot get better laws or laws that will de justice to the farm- ind industry, so long as we send men to make laws who are not in sympathy with our calling by sending lawyers an...

WHOLE 10. 001. THIRTY YEARS' HI8TORY. Picture of the Past and Present. Thirty years ago not an Ameri- can could be iound who did not profoundly believe in the perpetu- ity of the American Republican. The past was strewn with awful wrecks, amid the mighty timbers of which humanity poured forth into new epochs, a wounded, bleed- ing, hopeless mass. But in Amer- ^ ica—"the land of the free and the home of the brave"—intelligence was enthroned and all the mael- stroms of the past would be charm- ed into silence and peace and use- fulness by the deity which presided ¡ over the school house. Thirty years ago no man could urge the probable fill of the great re- public, because no man could even prophesy a cause for decay.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb. 4,1892. < t The Chilian War Faroe. james armstrong. The press of this country has for some time been making a great ado about a probable war with Chili, when in reality, there is no more probability of a war with Chili, than there is with the free state of Congo in Africa. No one doubts that the present administration is glad of an excuse to repair all the old war ships on hand, and build as many new ones as they dare, with- out alarming the conservative ele- ment of the people; but we can rest assured no warship of the Uni- ted States will ever be used for the purpose of destroying the Chilian navy, nor for blockading Chilian ports. We, in reality, know noth- ing about the prime cause of all this bombastic bluster on the part of the United States in getting ready for war. So far as we know, a few sailors from a United States cruiser went ashore, and from some cause, got into a (no doubt drunk- en) row in which one or two of them secured perpetual leave of ...

F b. 4.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 The Half is More Than the Whole. The idea that by destroying a part of a thing, the remnant may be made more valuable than the original whole is of very ancient origin. It may be traced' back through various fables, proverbs, aphorisms, until lost amid the myths and shadows of the remotest antiquity. The Grecian author Hesoid distinctly declared that the half is often more than the whole. The fable of the Sylillian books is merely another way of putting the same idea. It has remained for modern financiers, business men and so-called statesmen to erect upon the loundation of this mathe- matical paradox a monetary and commercial system for the modern world. The money mongers be- gan by demonetizing silver and de- nying that metal coinage, and by burning up greenbacks, and cancel* ling bank notes; so that having re- duced the quantity of money one- half, the purchasing power of the remaining half should be greater than that of the original whole. It is ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb. 4,1892. A Boy's Observations. mike mason. George Washington and his fee- ble army had an overwhelming foe to fight, but their cause was just, they won the victory. American people are too democratic to ever submit to serfdom of any form. The fires of patriotism that burned in the breasts of the "father of our country" and his heroic followers, is burning brightly to-day, and is being manifested all over the land. The echoes of reform resound from the At'antic ta the Pacific, and from the Great lakes to the Gulf of Mexico; and the universal cry of united labor is: ' We will stand this oppression no longer; give us liberty or give us death!" United States history gives us an account of political parties of this country from the time of the colonies to the pre.sent day. Thom- as Jefferson , a true democrat, saw the danger of the national banking system and opposed it without fear or favor. Let the so-called demo- cratic leaders of Texas, who claim to be political...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb. 4.1892. < V Think About This. This is election year again, and candidates of all political creeds and complexions are multiplying as did the locustB in Egypt. When vacancies ocur by death, the corpse ofthe occupant is barely cold be- fore petitions are flying in every direction for the vacancy. It is surprising how many men can be found who are willing to serve the "dear people" for the paltry emol- uments of office. In times like these it is well that Alliance men exercise that discretion and cau- tion that should mark the good cit- izen in making up his ballot and casting his vote. The following from the La. Vidette is very ap- propos at this time: Too many of the members of the Alliance have a hankering after the fleshpots of office. The wish- ing to holdoffice is not objectiona- ble in itself, but where the party is competent, honett, and pupular enough to make a good run, the ambition is commendable. The danger that we fear is not that the members of...

Feb 4, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. ▲ MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM. A Sub-Treasury Illustration, By B. C. Abernathy, in the Toiler. Take the figures 40 and SO, let 40 represent the volume of cur- rency and 80 the amount of agri- cultural products for 1890. Now we have 2 for 1, twice 40 equals 80. We will suppose that 40, rep- resenting the circulating medium, is adequate to tlie demands of trade of both commercial and agri- cultural. Prices are good, busi- ness brisk, wheat $1 per bushel, corn 50 cents per bushel and cotton 10 cents per pound. Farmers are selling their products and liquidat- ing tlieir obligations in the midst of prosperity. 1891 is ushered in and another crop commenced, fin- ished and harvested, we turn to« statistics and lo, they inform us that it is the largest crop ever grown in the United states, in fact jumps to 120; now if the volume of currency is not automatic in its ac- tion in adjusting itself to the de- mand of trade but is fixed, stable and unchangeable, what are th...

Feb. 4.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. __ 9 r EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAT. It will be remembered that Frank McGrath, ex-president of the Farmers Alliance in Kansas, was in full sympathy with, and aided U. S.- Hall of Missouri, in his attempt to disrupt the Farmers Al- liance, Hall claiming to be a dem- ocrat and McGrath claiming to be a republican. The Kansas State Alliance de- capitated McGrath as its president, and the Missouri Alliance did the same with Hall. Since his defeat, Hall has subsided for want of some one to notice him. Mc -ath now comes to the front as a third party champion, and after having been selected as a delegate to the 22nd of Feb. 1892, St. Louis meeting of Federated Labor organizations, from the Kansas S:ate Alliance by its executive committee, rushes in- to print and says "that he and three others of the delegation were se- lected after they had made the statement that they would not ac- cept unless they were permitted to vote against the Alliance sub-treas- ury demand, a...

10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb 4,1892. FEESS COMMENTS. Texas politics smell dead enough already, without Tammany's emp- tying its rotten maw into her lap.— Austin Capijolian. True enough. But if "Tamma- ny," with its "rotten maw," should name the candidate for President, Texas collar democrats will swallow him, "maw" and all. Evan Jones has jumped upon a sub-alliance and revoked its char- ter for rebelling against the state Alliance. Correct thing. If they don't comply with the constitution and laws, cut them out.—Hemp- stead News. Certainly! Our officers enforce our laws to the letter. If a ma- sonic lodge was to violate the fun- damental laws of masonry, the duty of the state master would be plain. Tammany went down to Wash- ington, took possession of the house and elected a speaker—Aus- tin Capitolian. Tammany has practically ruled the democratic party ever since the war. It will continue to rale it or ruin it. The people of the South, West and Northwest should unite and overthrow the ...

To remove blood stains from cloth, wet with kerosene, and af- ter a few minutes wash in warm water. Ease tired feet by bathing them in warm water in which a few lumps of salaratus have been dis- solved.

By rubbing with a flannel dip- iped in whiting the brown discolora- tion may be taken off cups which have been used for baking.
