THE ATTACK ON STONE It Is a pity that all the democrats of the coun try, and the republicans as well, could not have heard the speech delivered by Senator Stone be fore the Missouri Press association at Kansas City a few days ago. The republican papers had "been so malicious and so mendacious in their attacks upon him that he took advantage of the occasion to make a reply to their misrepresenta tions. Ho had been accused of securing the pass age of a bill prphiblting the use of alum in tho manufacture of food products, and the more par tisan of the papers even insinuated that he was trying to avoid testifying before the grand jury In the bribery cases now pending. The facta as presented by Mr. Stone are, first, that he never knew of the passage of the anti-alum bill until a year after it became a law. He was then practicing l...

A few plain facts of history may enable the readers of The Commoner to judge as to the weight to be given to the professions of Interest in the party, made by the advocates of the gold standard. In 1892 the three parties receiving the highest number of votes all declared for bimetallism. The democratic party said: "We hold to the use of both gold and silver as the standard money of the country, and to the coinage of both gold and sil ver without discrimination against either metal or charge for coinage."

When baking puff paste, the heat should be greatest first and decrease later. This is to keep the paste in shape. When the oven is too hot, the temperature may be reduced by putting into it a pan of cold water. When baking in an oven that is too hot at the top,, fill a dripping pan with cold water, about an inch deep, and put on the top grate of the oven.
