11. BRADY, Agent. tVoufd 'increased' Demand For Sliver. The fujtion of the Silver party whioh believes that under free coinage at 16 to 1 the bullion value of silver would be raised to Its coinage ratio with gold says that this will be done by reason of the greatly increased demand for silver. It is alleged that this additional demand will mako the silver dollar equal in valuo to a gold dollar and that, there-lure, thore would be no repudiation of dubts or loss to savings bank depositors, holders, of insurance policies, etc But while they talk of an increased uso of silver money under free coinage the silvorites do not attempt to show how or why more would be used.

We have now over $030,000,000 in silver money, of whioh almost $560,000,000 is full legal tender nnd $76,000,000 subsidiary coinage. That the limit to the amount of the latter coins that will circulate has been reached is shown by the fact that over $15,000,000 is now idle in the treasury vaults, there being no doinand for it in business. Of the 431,853,041 silver dollars which have been coined only are in circulation, the remainder being represented by silver certificates. Wore it not for these certificates it is doubtful whether one-half of the total coinage would go into circulation, as tho weight and bulk of the white metal make it unsuitable for general use. It must be remembered that under free coinage no silver certificates would be Wilkes attended church in Council Holzsclwlier rer before offered in Dwight or else Grove last Sunday.

Dwight Grocery common sense to the rescue I Let us no longer have free silver, but free wood dollars, for our cry. Thus could farmers and manufacturers afford to pay great wages to workingmen. Why cannot our government place any value it chooses upon metal or wood? Has gold any value except what we and the people of other nations choose to give it? Let England and other nations make it what they choose.

What is that to us? Are we not a nation of 70,000,000 of people and quite sufficient unto ourselves? Let other nations stagger under a golden cross, but let us have plenty of money and liberty.

Should not the good people of Dwight and the people of the surrounding' country, in fact, consider the matter of tree planting? Now is a good time to begin.

The time to quit will never come. Once in a great while through the country a nice growth of trees is found. Note the large growth of evergreen on the old T. A. Quinn place, over northwest.

Evergreens are noted for their slow growth; but on Mr. Quinn's place is a grove that is a beauty and worth more than money. Supposing the planter had never planted because they would grow so slow? Are homesteaders (all of us are making homes) all so selfish as to cheat their own children of the shade and the comforts from the foliage and growth of trees because trees grow slow? It is a', shame; everybody ought to plant trees. In this arid region, once known as the Great American Desert, yet where plant life developes so rapidly and comes to such a high state of perfection when once well started; where barren wastes can be transformed into orchard and forest growth, augument-ing rainfall, retarding evaporation and thus creating natural reservoirs, tree planting and tree culture are most significant. Loads of black-walnuts are grown on the black-walnut trees planted by Mr.
