NEW RATIO A SUBTERFUGE . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 26 March 1896
NEW RATIO A SUBTERFUGE . S OME persons who call themselves bimetaflists seem to think it desirable to change the old ratio of 16 to I . To all who are honest in this and who candidly say , why not ? we are willing to state our grounds for opposing any change of ratio and will do so in this article . . But it should be borne in mind , that , among-the subterfuges that the gold mononietallists , pure and simple , are accustomed to employ , this of a proposed change of ratio is one . A thorough-going friend of bimetallism writes us : Nothing would delight John Sherman more than to see the mints fuHof work to their utmost capacity recoining our silver money . He would say : Let them hum . Perhaps this expression of one who is perfectly familiar with the coinage business , having himself been an officer , or employe , in a mint for many years , will open the eyes of some of our mistaken bimetallists , who suggest recoining , at any ratio , but who do not understand the practical difficul...

"An April Armistice " [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 26 March 1896
An April Armistice . By K . Vrboman King . In a capacious pocket of the Alleghanies were hid the rolling acres of the Widow Ostrander s plantation . The mountains were a stately guard , and their watch was so successful that even in the last year of our civil war no raiding party had yet found its way into the little glen . The only wagon road to the outer world was along the course of a brawling stream , that wound around the shoulders of the hills and out into the Shenandoah . The waters soon effaced any wheel tracks in the pebbly bottom , aind were equally kind in carrying away every evidence of passing-cavalry , as they were called upon to do the last of March , 18 65 . Sunset found the plantation negroes busy getting a hot supper for the hungry men who blvouaced , -as directed , , In one grassy field , while their horses roamed unguarded in another . Even -the prisoners shared in the general good cheer , being given the roomy basement , of the barn , with plenty of sweet hay fo...
