stubs and aroused the sleeping child
ren. Freelander leaped out of bed and
ran down stairs. Neighbors, who heard

Meanwhile the children, aroused by
th confusion, attempted to get down
stairs, but the oldest girl held them
back when slu1 found smoke pouring up

Schradcr is FH'ccting His Alleged
Miraculous Cures in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, Oct. 25. August Schra
der, who cnlls himself the "divine heal
er," arrived in this city from the West
last evening, charged with the especial
mission of curing the nfilicted. This Is
Schrader's first visit to the East, and he
givs as his reason for beginning work
in Philadelphia that he has been urged
to do so by many residents of the city,
who have written to him continually on
the subject. The large number of hand
kerchiefs sent to him by Philadelphlans
to be blessed has also had the effect, he
says, of convincing him that he is want
ed here and will be cordially received.
Sohrai'er has gained fnme as "healer"
since the advent In the West and South
west of Schlatter. Schrader said today
that he had made thousands of miracu
lous cures In the western part of the
United States. He intends staying in
Philadelphia for two weeks, when he
will go to New York. From the latter
place he will visit New England. There
was a constant stream of callers upon
Schrader today, and several cures are
said to have been made.

Free coinage advocates, who claim thnt
their scheme for M-cent dollars would
benefit the whole people, should explain
how It happens
thnt the most civilized countries hnvo
gradually abandoned the silver standard;
that the great commercial nations
which do the largest portion of the world's
business are all on the gold basis;
that no Important country has ever
gone back to silver after once using gold
as a measure of value;
that wages are far higher In gold
standard countries than In China, Mexico
and all other silver countries;
that the condition of the American
farmer Is so greatly superior to that of the
ryots who cultivate the soil of silver
standnrd Jmlia;
that if it be true that the gold stand
ard lowers the price of goods this is iot
deslrnble for our sixty-live million con
sumers; that wherever the experiment cf
cheapening the currency has been tried
It has alway.4 Injured most the masses
whose Inbor produces all wealth;
and that the men most anxious to'
overthrow our present standard are the
silver mine owners, speculators and f
lice seeking politicians.
