It was worst on his chin , although the sores on his cheeks and hands were very bad . It appeared in the form of red pimples which would fester , break open and run and then scab over .

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
MISCELLANEOUS Hints on the Study of the Silver Question • ¦ ¦ - By John A . Grier . In a late number of the Library Bulletin I notice an article by Mr . E . V . Smalley , general secretary of tbe National Sound Money League of the United States . If it were not for his official position I would not trouble you and your students who propose to undertake the study of the money question with these comments . Mr . Smalley states the position of the gold men fairly well and endeavors to define the position of those who defend the honesty and expediency of our silver dollar coinage , but in this respect I think he makes a failure . Persons who agree that bur silver dollar coinage is both honest and expedient do not agree in all the details of the money question . However , we jointly contend against the injustness of the single gold standard , and what is of even more importance , we all agree that the paper or credit money of the United States should be issued and controlled by the gover...
