Kushat was not mist;ik< u. She did
hear firing and see the smoke of rifles,
and Hf-nrr Kyle was right in thinking
that Brandon had been attacked. Far
down the rift the clatter of hoofs and
the jingle of arms told that B >uton was
through the pass and in possession of
the trail leading to the Prophet's valley.
The captain saw that a minute's delay
would place L .ai between two fires.
"Keep c* !. my men," he sir uted.

sending down the 111:111 who was in the
advance, htill on kept the captain's
party. They were 2f»:j yards ahead of
him when li> r' mounted to follow. But
in his efforts to save his men he had
placed himself in deadly p^ril.
From the valley Boaton saw and rec
ognized him, and shouting to his men:
"Take him alive! Take him alive!" he
led the charge to head Captain Brandon
off. Close pressed though the captain
was, he might have gone through had
not Bouton, svho had been in the ad
vance, flung himself from bis horso and
fired. He was a fine rifleman. He should
be, for firearms had been his toys in
childhood and his constant companions
in manhood. The captain's horse gave
three quick, short bounds. The knees
suddenly doubled up, and the daring
rider was dashed to the ground, where
he lay bleeding and senseless. "Ho,
ho!" shouted Bouton, running over and
laying his foot 011 the captain's slow
"Ho, ho!" shouted Bouton.

you to know that you are in my power
before you <lie! litre, boys, cany this
fellow to tho spring Bath'- him and
restore him. I shall let him know he
crossed my path once too often!"
The outlaws picked up the uncon
scious 111.1:1, and the whole Kang would
have followed had not Bouton, now
savagely exultant after his late depres
sion, shouted to them:
"Pursue! Those men must not escape
Captain Brandon was carried to the
spring, Hear which Alice Blanchard and
Nora Kyle were sitting, weary, pale and
downhearted. Nora had heard of the
gallant captain, but had never seen him
before. She did not even know who h<-
was when he was placed on the ground
beside her, with the bl'iod flowing from
■x cut in his head and tho scar from
brow to chin looking as if it had just
been made. It did not need a second
glance for Alice to know who it was.
With a cry of agony she sprang to her
feet, and hurrying over knelt beside
him and placed her ear to his broad
"Thank (iod, he still lives! Bring
water, Nora! Help me, help me! This
is Captain Brandon—Captain Brandon,
iur protector and friend!"
Nora at the call hastened to Alice's
side, and one of the men brought wa
ter from the spring. Alice loosened his
collar, poured water between his lips,
bathed the gash on his head, and even
satisfied herself that the wound was not
fatal by feeling the skull. In 20 minutes
the captain looked into her face, smiled
und whispered:
"Yon, Alice?'"
"Yes, I, my friend. Oh, why has this
misfortune befallen you of all men!
You, our guide and protector! You, 011

Ktrokwl his forehead ILS if to clear away
the mists still clouding his brain.
"Yes," sho said, "you are a prisoner

he asked eagerly.
"They seem to have eluded jmrsuit. "
"And Lou is Kyle—where is Louis
"They say ho escaped last night. "
"Yes, HO I heard WMII of (ho nun

"If he has escaped, he will join my
little party, aiul under his leadership I
will not be missed. And yet we are too
weak tospare one man. Well," lie a<ld
ed, with a sigh of satisfaction, "having
doneour best wo should boiatisfiedfo face
(he consequences without a muraiur."
The captain sat up and looked in the
direction from which came the slow
hut regular discharge of what lie knew
to he a repeating rifle. White pull's of
smoke marked the location of a rifleman
in the cliffs that towered above the ir
regular depression in which the outlaws
had halted. There was a great commo
tion among the Indians and while men
who remained hack with Bouton, ami
every time a puff of silvery smoke rose
from the cliffs a man fell, or a wound
ed man ran out of range. Bouton knew
in liis heart who the dreaded rifleman
was, and lie took g<x>d care to keep out
of sight A few minutes and two rifleu
began to flash from the cliffs, and Black
Eagle hastened to Boiiton's side and
said with an expression of mingled an
ger and alarm:
"Kushat is up there with Henry Kyle
You told me that itwas thoothcr broth
er she. loved. "
"She seems to love the family,"
sneered Bouton as he stepped behind a
rock to keep out of range.
Nora Kyle overheard the conversation
between Bouton and Black Eagle, and
watching the cliffs, from which the
pull's of white smoke enrli d up, she saw
•a bit of vrmilion coloring moving
along the giddy crest of the rocks, and
she said to Alice:
"That is Kushat."
"Yes," said the captain, "and the
rifleman who is sending death into the
ranks of the outlaws is vour brother
Henry. jomea us in
"Then he would have l>eeu true to
himself," sigk- d >'--ra.
At length i;. nfinp died out, and the
vermilion rpetk disappeared fi m far
up the mountainside. When B 'Uten
saw this and believed he could move
about in s -fcry, he left the protection of
the rocks aid mounted his horse. H
felt in his wicked heart that Heiiiy
Kyi ■ watch: d for him. and death would
be certain if he once ventured within
range of the dreaded rifle. N't only
hate for but dread of Henry Kyle made
him doubly anxious to get him out of
the way, and, as lu's been shown, he
used every means in his power to ac
complish his purpose. As Bouton r tie
in the direction which Font Robb had
taken he reviewed the incidents already
recorded, and he felt elated and dcpressed
by turns. He had ridden about a mile
when he heard -iring to the front, and
he hastened to a place where Font Robb
had been brought to a halt. With an
oath he demanded to know what was
up now.
"Louis Kyle is in command," growl
ed Robb.
"Louis Kyle!"
"Jest as sure as you're thar. By
thunder, I never saw such dickerin in I
all my life. Jest as soon as we gets one. !
another is o£. Blow me if I ever saw j

Robb declared that he had men out

expected to get the little party out of
his way before an hour was over Then
he asked:
"What are you goin to do with the
"You mean Brandon?"
"That's the rooster I'm alludin to."
"Font, what would jou do with
him?" asked Bouton, sinking his voice,
though there was 110 one but Robb with
in hearing.
"Curse me if I'd give him a chance
to get away, " replied Robb.
"And do you think I will?"
"I hojxi not. '
"Nc, sir. I've been acting white man
so far. When I cme to Brandon, I'll
show the Indian side of my character.
Now, push on, and I'll go back and fol

Bouton turned to ride back, and Robb
shouted after him:
"For heaven's sake send that Sim
Bliss under fire! It'd do me a heap of
good to see that mildewed coyote knock

Bejuton nodded to show that he un
derstood him and went back to the
spring, where the captain and girls were
still talking.
While Dr. Blanchard and Valentine
Kyle, as we shall continue to call Valen
tine Weldon, s'ood each with his arms
about th'; other, a deep,'solemn voice
came from (hi cavern's gloom saying:

derness came the words, 'Prepare ye tho
way of tho Lord; make ye his paths
straight' Yo that labor and an* heavy

From the deeper shadows of the cave
the Prophet advanced to the altar's
light, and extending a hand to each
said with a solemnity that wholly ob
literated the seeming incongruity of his
"Whom tho Lord hath joined lot 110
man part asunder.'' And surely ih
beautiful command was never more
projiriacely employed outside < r
marriage service. "I feel," s
Blanchard, laying his hand 01
tine Kyle's shoulder, "like one wi» . i
been transported to a sphere that is n
of the earth. After this I shall be sur
prised at nothing."
"And yet there are greater surprises
in store for you. Ask mo not to speak
now, but watch and pray." And tho
Prophet set tho example in tho latter
ordinance by dropping on Ills knees then
and there, and the two old men knelt
on either Bide and bowed their heads.
And whilo tho Prophet prayed with
much solemnity and tho cavern echoes
woro multiplying tho sound tho yellow
light, of another day crept in from the
outer world, and tho fires on tho altar
grew dimmer. Mr. Kyle sought tint his
wife, and after talking to her for somo
time came back, and taking tho doctor
by the hand whispered:
"Come! Sho who has borne more than
half the burden and kept my heart from
breaking long since is near by and de
sires to speak with you." As he stood
there tho people began to wake up, and
with shouts of gladness tho children
ran out to tho sunlight and down to tho
lake, where tho trout wero leaping and
the birds, 011 balanced wing, wero look
ing at their double in tho beautiful mir
ror beneath.
After breakfast was over the Prophet
disappeared in tho cave, carrying a
torch. He came back in a few minutes,
but in tho short time ho had effected a
complete change in his costume. Tho
heavy robes of fur that ho woro winter
and summer in such fantastic shape
wero laid aside, and he apjieaml clad in
a suit of white buckskin, with ls-aded
moccasins and stringed leggings. Tho
tunic, belted at his waist, showed oft
his splendid form to advantage and
proved t hat he had not yet lost the graco
of youth 11s well as revealing tho secret
of his amazing activity and powers of
endurance. Tho long auburn hair was
thrown back behind his ears and secured
there by a tight fitting cap, the band of
which was made of blue porcupine
quills. On tho breast of this tunic ami
covering it like a shield was a Maltese
cross and below it worked in garnet
ls-ads the words, "In this sign con
quer." Tho silver hilt, of a knife that
looked like a short, sword protruded
from a finely wrought scabbard in his
beltand two revolvers, with stocks deco
rated in the same way, wero fastened
over his hips From his shoulders a car
tridge box was slung on one side and a
silver canteen 011 tho other. In his left
hand he carried his long rifle. As ho
strode out the women looked up at him
with mingled awe aud admiration.
The children gathered about him, and
holding each other's hands, half in
dread, half in admiration, I hey looked
silently at the giant warrior in whose
arms many of them had recently Ix-en.
Turning to Dr. Blanchard ami Valen
tino Kyle, who, with Mrs. Kyle and
Clara, were standing near by, tho
Prophet saitl:
"I leave the valley and the temple in
your charge. Fear not if 1 should be
long days away, for when 1 return I
will bring good news. "
"But if you should not return?" tho
doctor ventured to ask.
"My fate is not in my own hands,"
replied tho Prophet, with thrilling so
icmmty. I ;uu the servant of my Max
tir, and his work for long years I hpvo
until 1 bring you joy."
The Prophet waved his hand, and
turning was -K :I swallowed up ill the
Stygian depths of the cava He had trav
ersal a few • f the long cavern's cham

in lii' distance, and then the turn of an
angle brought to view the coppery glow
of a torch t! it burned S' 1 far away that
it 1 oked lii..' a patch of rt d cloud sur
viving the setting of the sun. The
Prophet's mt ■ ined feet fell as lightly
on the floor as tin- leaves on the surface
of an unrippled \y mL He strode oil, his
deep, long breathing alone telling of
his humanity, till he canie to the .sub
terranean waterfall from behind which
the light of the torch came. He bowed
bef re the fall, which lookt d like a cata
ract of crystalline blood, and as he stood
in this devotional attitude the waters
turm il black, and an Indian, bearing a
torch, came out aud called to the
"I have been waiting. "
"And I have come. How are my
herd- rs?" asked the Prophet.
"Safe, and so are the herds, " replied
the Indian, who had charge of the stock
in the valley, to which the Prophet led
C a]slain Brandon and Howard Blanch
ard after their first visit to the cave.
"What news from the world at
"One of our people who came this
morning before th' an had risen speaks
of having heard much firing and shout
ing during the night," replied the In
The Prophet waved his hand, and the
Indian led the way with his torch until,
through the tortuous passages before
described, they emerged from the moun
tain side and stood bareheaded and
bowed before the glory of the sun. They
had been here but a few minutes, indeed
the torch thrown from the man's hand
was still smoking 011 the ground, when
anot-her Indian appeared, leading a
powerful but splendidly formed horse.
The equipments of the animal vert
quite in keeping with the Prophet's .
change of costume, aud the proud ere a- 1
ture arched its neck and champed on the j
bit as anxious to be off.
"Guard well this entrance to the j
cave!" said the Prophet, pointing to the
crevice from which he had emerged.
The herders nodded and laid their j
hands on their rifles.
"And see that the people in the cave, j
the women and children, do not want
The herders nodded again and laid
tkeir hands ou their hunting knives.
Without another word the Prophet gath
ered up the reins and headed his horse
for tho hills and sped away like au ar
row. Fiom the crest of an elevation that
gave him a view of the country over an
area of 200 square miles the Prophet
reined up and flung himself from his
horse. After surveying the landscape to
tho west, beginning on tho horizon's
rim and coming nearer to the mountain
ou which he stood, his eyes at length
rested on a long irregular valley, that in
the clear atmosphere seemed to be only
a mile or two away. He could see the
pygmy figures of many horses and men,
<■ la. / //M
"Where is llcnry Kyle?"
and he knew they were Bouton's people.
And to tho north, moving in the direc
tion of his own valley, he saw the sil
very puffs of smoke that told a fight was
going on in that direction.
The Prophet remounted, and every
foot of tho way iu front and on each side
was scanned as he galloped iu tho di
rection of tho conflict. Not a dee r start
fid from tho grove nor a bird flying by
ill rivalry of his own flight passed unno
It was this keen observation that
showed him a number of Indians dodg
ing behind tho rocks ahead, and led him
above tho thunder of his horse's hoofs
to distinguish tho short, sharp crack of
rifles. The Indians saw him coming,
and with cries of alarm they left their
hiding places and ran down tho rocks,
Black Kagle leading tho advance. The
Prophet reined his horse, brought down
his rifle in tho same action and fired.
One of tho Indians in retreat threw up
his hands and fell on his face.
"A good, bravo shot, " shouted a girl
ish figurebehind the Prophet Hewheel
ed and in the act of reloading his rifle
saw Kushat standing out on tho rocks.
"What!" ho asked. "Were the hounds
in pursuit of you?"
"In pursuit of me and Ilenry Kyle,"
she replied.
"And where is llenry Kyle?"
"lie is here."
"Not hiding. Henry Kylo may havo
been wicked, but he is not a coward,"
said the Prophet, dismounting and lead
ing his liorso up to where Kushat stood
on the r<x:ka
"Not a coward, but too lato do I
learn that I have been and am a wicked
man," said Henry Kyle, coming into
view and standing bowed and abashed
before tho Prophet
"Did not Moses train with tho Egyp
tians, tho despollers „f bis people, be
fore lie became the leader of Israel ami
the man who talked with God and
brought down tho laws of tho people?
Live not in tho past, Henry Kyle. A

llenry briefly narrated tho events of
the previous night, including tho escapo
of his brother Louis and tho capture of
Captain Brandon, and lie added that he
thought Bouton was making for tho val

"Yes, Bouton and his people believo
that you have great stores put away in
the caves, and often they have thought
of attacking and robbing you or forcing
you to give up your secret as to where
the gold has been obtained. So far they
havo feared you, hut now Bouton is
strong, and lie has with him many men
who know you only by name, and who
consequently havo not tho reverence for
you which wo have who havo long been
dwellers in these mountains. From
Biuton's movements I am certain that

"liet him lead his force to my valley,
and he will lead them to destruction.

llenry called to him:
"I cannot •"> with yon."
"You cannot?" .v&. d the Prophet iu
"I will not try to change your ivsoki
tion, " said the Prophet "The Lord is
working iu your heart in his own way
and to urge my advice would be flying
in the face of Providence. " He paused,
stroked his long beard and looked up at
the sun. Then he continued.- "Henry
Kyle, I never thought to extend my
i..., Hudness to you again, yet I do
so, alia 1. ' is between us becomes
a dream. Iu in; • I shall pray for
thee, and may all be
Henry took the extended hand in both
of his, and bowing over it pressed it
reverently to his lips. The other hand
the Prophet gave to Kushat, and he
said :
"May you bo as true to yourself as
J-ou are to Henry Kyle."
"I know not myself,"sho replied.
"He is my life, for without him I could
not live."
The Prophet hastened in the direction
where he knew his friends to be, taking
rare the meanwhile to run into no am
bush, for, though others might believe
in his invulnerability—and perhaps he
encouraged tho idea to strengthen him
with the ignorant men with whom lie
tame in conflict—he never deceived liiui
lelf in the matter.
It was the middle of the afternoon
when, after many glimpses of Bouton's
oncoming horsemen, he found himself
within hailing distance of t. ais Kyle's
little party. Howard Blanchard and
John Clyde refused to recognize the
Prophet in his strange attire, and they
would have fired 011 him had not Louis
peremptorily ordered them to lower
their rifles.
"I do not wonder," said the Prophet
as he rode up. "that ye do not know me
in this garb. Heretofore ye have seen
me as a mountain priest. Now I am a
mountain warrior, fighting on the side
of the Great Jehovah, and, as my soul
liveth, I shall not prove recreant to the
new trust."
The men gathered around him and
shook his hands, each anxious to learn
something of his own dear (in s back in
the valley. The Prophet told the men
about their people, and lie showed a
wonderful memory for names, fir he
mentioned all the children when he had
given an account of the adults. He also
told of his meeting with Hi liry Kyle,
and he delighted the hearts of the im
migrants by telling them that Captain
Brandon was not dead, but a prisoner.
Howard Blanchard proposed that they
should turn back and rescue the captain
at once, and John Clyde seconded tho
suggestion with great spirit.
"Not now," said the Prophet. "We
must not do anything to delight the
heart of tho oppressor. "
"And," asked honest John Clyde,
"do you think they'll be delighted to
see us coming at them?"
"I know they would, for, though we
might start, we could never reach the
destination we had iu view. Let us
watch aud pray." Then, turning to
Lonte Kyle, who was standing 011 a rock
near by, looking back, he said:
"Do you see the Philistines?"
"Yes," replied Louis. Then, coming
over, he laid his hand on Ihe Prophet's
arm and continued: ' "Neither I nor any
of the men here dreamed of anything
else but that you should take command
after wo were sure that it was you ap
proaching. We place ourselves in your
charge, and whatever you command that
shall we do.''
"Louis speaks for miv" said Howard
"And for me," at. Jed John Clyde,
and the others joined in unanimously.
"And whatever Louis Kyle says er
does that we do, " said one of the herd
ers, who on a former occasii 11 showed
his devotion to his young master.
"If Captain Brandon were here," said
tho Prophet, "now as in the past 1
would submit as a child to his control,
onco we were outside the temples where
I preside, but now with your consent I
will try to act as he would were he here.
"So, my friends, mount your horses and
fall back. The Philistines are in sight.
See the sunlight flashing on their arms!"
Tho men threw themselves 011 their
horses, and tho Prophet and Louis Kyle,
keeping to the rear, turned in their sad
dles now and then to look back. They
sould see that Bouton had brought the
prisoners to the front so as to deter re
The sun was set ting when tho Prophet
and his friends entered tho depression
terminating 111 the canyon that led into
tho wonderful valley, which seemed to
be tho objective point of the marauders
There could bo no better place in which
to make a stand. The Prophet's force
jould easily have held it against ten
times Bouton's numbers, and some of
tho men urged him to make a fight
there. He said in reply: " You are right
j 11s to our power to keep them back. The
defense is in our favor, but we are in
their hands, and they know it."
"How so?" asked John Clyde. '
"B<x;auso in this canyon we cannot
shoot at them or destroy them without
at the same time destroying our friends.
Their prisoners are their shields, and
they know they are safe behind them."
It was quite dark when they emerged
from tho canyon, wherein the roar of
the waters had drowned out their own
voices and the tramping of the horses.
In tho face of the cliff beyond th"' lake
they saw a dull glow, and they knew it
same from the caves where the few men
and the women were watching.
"Let them come into tho valley,"
said tho Prophet to his men, who, in
their impatience, were anxious to make
a stand at. the entrance to tho canyon.
"But our wives and children iue over
yonder," said one of the men.
"Aye, and God is everywhere. Let
them come in, I say," said the Prophet
In tones that for the first time had in
them a ring of command.
"Why, you talk as if you wanted
them to come in, "said tho astonished
"Then lam not deceiving you. Let
them come into tho valley. have

Par up the canyon they could hear the
shouting of the men and the tramping
of horses blending with tho roar of the
waters and multiplied again and again
by tlie echoes so pi miliar to the wonder
ful chasm. 'The women heard the tramp
ing of the horses and snatched up their
children and trembled and crouched
near tho entrance of the cave. Dr.
Blanchard aud Valentino Kyle seized
their rifles and stisul ready to defend

their fears by shouting out while yet

entrance to the cave, so as to watch tho
horses and the foe. And the js'oplo

Fundamental Truths Which All
Would Do Well to Memorize.
| In 1K94 It Was a Sixfold Increase Within
Five Years, and This Explains the Ac
companying Decline in Price—Existing
Hard Times Date From 18f>3, When
with the ltep«>al of the McKlnley Tarirt
and the Enormous Purchase of Silver by
the Government the Story of fetagimtion,
Kuin and Disaster ILegan.
1. The suspension of free silver coinage
by the act of 1878 did not demonetize sil
ver. From thv! foundation of the govern
ment up to 1873 less than $150,000,000 in
silver of all kinds had been coined, and
none of it was in circulation, silver being
at a premium over gold. Paper money,
backed by gold, was the circulating me
dium in 1873.
2. Since 1873 more than $900,000,000 in
silver coin and silver notes have been is
sued. and practically all of it is in use.
3. Kxistlng hard times date from 1893,
when the enormous purchases of silver by
the government caused European holders
of American securities (for which they
paid gold) to sell them through fear that
the United States would go upon a silv ;r
basis. In which case they would get for
their securities fifty-three cents' worth of
silver tor every dollar in gold invested.
The subsequent passage of the Wilson
tariff act, which enabled foreign pro
ducers to sell their products in the United
States lower than American manufactur
ers could afford to make them, extended
the depression into commercial and indus
trial channels. Tho renewed silver agita
tion completes the story of stagnation,
ruin and disaster.
•J. The term "lfi to 1" means that sixteen
ounces of silver, worth the world over but
sixty-five cents an ounce, or $10.56 for six
teen ounces, shall lie the equal of one
ounce of gold, worth everywhere $20.67.
5. The silver in a United States stand
ard dollar is now worth about fifty and
one-quarter cents in gold.
0. The metal in a gold dollar, coined or
uncoined, is worth everywhere 100 cents in
7. Up to 1873 the United States govern
ment had coined only 8,031,238 standard
sliver dollars.
8. Since 1873 tho United States has
coined 431,852,041 standard silver dollars.
Nevertheless, tho commercial value of the
bullion In the standard dollar has de
creased from about sl.Ol in '73 to about
fifty-one cents. This answers Bryan's ar
gument that tho increased use of silver
will enhance its value.
9. During tho first eight months of '96
the government of the 1 'nitod States coin
ed 11,212,412 standard silver dollars—ex
actly $3,181,171 more than it had coined
from the foundation of tho government
down to '73.
10. In August, '96, the government of
the United States coined 3,660,000 stand
ard silver dollars. The seigniorage on
those, or, more plainly speaking, the dif
ference between their bullion and face
value, is $822,037. This, under freo coin-'
age, would lie tho mine owners' profit.
11. From the foundation of the govern
ment up to '73 tho coinage valuo of all tho
silver produced in the United States was
12. From 1873 to '93 tho coining value of
all the silver produced in tho United States
was $1,214,751,000.
13. The foregoing figures show that dur
ing tho twenty-two years from '73 to '95
the silver produced in tho United States
exceeded twelve timos over tho product of
the United States for the eighty-one years
from 1783 to 1873. This explains why sil
ver has declined in value. It likewise
crushes tho Bryan theory that nothing
has been dono for silver.
14. In 1873 the total amount of monoy
in the United States was $787,606,393, or
ulxiut $lB for each Inhabitant.
15. In 1896 tho total amount of money iu
tho United States is $2,200,109,000, or
about $25 for each Inhabitant.
16. On Aug. 1, '96, the actual amount of
money in circulation was $1,514,903,142, or
$21.10 for each Inhabitant.
17. On Aug. 1, '96, there was, Including
silver notes, a total silver circulation of
18. Under the act of July 14, 1890 (the
Sherman bill) there was purchased 108,-
674,682 ounces, or 5,000 tons, of silver, at a
cost of $155,931,008, and treasury notes to
amount were Issued on that accouat
—the silver cost from $1.31 an ounce to 68
rents, tho average being about 90 cents.
If the silver were sold today the govern
ment would lose about $43,000,(MX). If
coined into standard dollars tho silver
Would produce nearly $218,000,000.

1781 to 1893, In coining value, was $0,030,-

the year 1895, in coining value, was $220,-

A Few Fact* About Hard Times and

A great many people seem to think these
hard times arc something now and that
the country has never seen the like before.
But these jieople have not rend their

know better. They would also learn that
neither free silver nor free gold hid ever
yet cured the poverty and hard times that
have always followed Democratic revenue
tariffs. Away back in 1816 wo tried a
revenue tariff. In speaking of the effect
of that tariff Henry Clay said that if he
were called upon to name seven years of
the most widespread disaster this country
had ever seen ho would say the seven
years following the adoption of the
revenue tariff of 1816.
In 1821 the policy of protection was re
stored and at ouco prosi>erity began to re
turn. »
In 1837 a revenue tariff was again tried
with disastrous results and goneral bank
The people quickly repented of their
folly, and in 1842 a protective tariff was
again adopted, and it soon brought such
prosperity that in 1844 even the Democrats
claimed that Polk was a better tariff man
lhan Henry Clay and had Inscribed on
their banner "Polk, Dallas and the tariff
of 1842."
Clay was beaten by Polk—the people
believed the Democratic promises as they
did iti 1892—and In 1846 the Democrats
gave them "a tariff for revonue only"
again, with damaging results, and In 1857
a further reduction of the tariff brought
on an era of hard times nearly as bad as
■we. now have.
In 1861 the Republicans enacted a pro
tective tariff again which continued with
a few changes intll 1894. During this
long period, despite tho losses sustained
in tho great rebellion, this country was In
tho enjoyment of such prosperity as the
civilized world had never before witnessed.
During this long period the generation
that had had experience with Democratic
financial legislation had nearly all died
off and a now generation, Ignorant of the
baleful effects of Democratic tariffs, had
come upon the stagcand in 1893 concluded
to try the quality of Democratic promises.
The results we aro now exi>erienclng and
none of us enjoys them. We are in a bad
plight and want to get out of it by the
shortest road. That road is not by free
silver, however. There a well tested
and proven method of counteracting the
effects of Democratic revenue tariffs that
has never failed, and that is a prompt re
turn to a goo-.l protective tariff. Sound,
honest money is also essential to prosper
ity, but wo have it now and only need to
stick to it and add a little good Republi
can protection and we will soon be on the
road to prosperity again. Cast your bal
lots for McKlnlty, sound money and pro
tection and «ood tlmos will come again
for a long, long stay.—Bedford Inquirer.

We are not of those who imagine that

CERTAINTY as to the medium of pay
ment is necessary to confidence, and con
fidenco is indispeusablo to enterprise.
Look at the variations in the price of sil
ver and consider how industry can in
cruase under such a standard of value!
EVEKY workingman who wants to gel
his wages in 53-cent dollars instead of 100-
cent dollars will have a chance to gratify
his astonishing desire by voting for Bryan
ou th» 3d of November next. Every work
ingman kuows that, and everybody else
knows it.
NOTHING could prove so annoying to the
Bryanltcs as the recent sharp advance In
wheat, while silver keeps on its downward
path. Tho constant cry of these Bryan
xjieakers, to the effect that the reduced
price of cereals is due to the demonetiza
tion of silver, has received a knockout
TfIKKK ar» no classes In this country;
every workingman kuows that without
employes to do the labor tho employe!
would lie helpless. On tho contrary, what
will it profit an employe to engage in war
fare against the man who uses his labol
and pays htm the wages on which he exist!
in return therefor!' capital are
absolutely dependent upon ouch other.
IK the campaign of 1892 was a campaign
of lying aud delllierate deceit, tho Bryan
managers are doing all in their power tc
make this campaign a campaign of hypo
crisy. An open and avowed liar is toler
able, and |Kjrhaps decent, compared with
a sneaking hypocrite. An earnest man,
though mistaken, may be respected. Bui
u hypocrite can only earn tho scorn and
contempt of honest men.
The present aspect of tho campaign,
which points as clearly as Is possible t«
the triumphant election of McKlnley
and Hobart, Is already having its effect
U|HIII the business situation all over the
country. Greater confidence Is displayed
in trade circles, aud the mills and fac
tories, which one after tho other closed
down owing to tho depression which
quickly followed the nomination oi

under tho reuewed hope that tho Repub
