THE GOD W0BLT Etg, The following from the Albany Journal, is about what the average republican paper is saying of the silver leaders and convention "The Tes Moines convention shows that the democracy is steadily progressing towards damnation. It is much farther on the road than it was last year. It is wilder, fiercer, more grimly intent on leveling and destruction than it was in 189(5. It was thought by many good people that Mr.

Bryan's defeat would end the silver heresy and choke the mad doctrine over which the party had gone wild. But it is now seen that this was a grevious delusion. That mad doctrine is more rampart today than ever and the democracy is committed to it irrevocably. The situation is one to cause serious concern in the minds of patriotic and intelligent men. The democratic party openly advocates the most dangerous doctrine that was ever advanced in the United States.

It has reached that point where those who would defend American institutions must arnv themselves together.

The story to which he had reference was related at a lumber manufacturers' convention in Memphis, by Mr. II.

Winchester of Buckhannar, W. Va. It ran as follows: "There was a meeting of lumber kings in Senator Burrow's committee room not long ago. One of the gentlemen from Minnesota made an estimate on the back of an envelope of what the $2 rate meant to the group of men present. He walked around the room, and then said: 'Mr.

Burrows, do you know what $1 a thousand would mean to this little crowd of men in here On last year's productv alone it would have meant for us There is no reason to believe the lumbermen exaggerated the protection that the duty would give them. On the contrary, they would shrewdly try to conceal their vast gains under the tariff. Consequently, it may be. believed that the SI rate would have given over $6,000,000 to the "little group" in one year. If so, how much will the 82 rate give the whole body of rich lumbermen annually? That is, how many millions will it take from the pockets of the people The public ought to be interested in this matter.

The lumbermen have got the rich forests of the North by fraud and charity, Now they are having the people forced to pay them millions of dollars to market the wealth that really ought to belong to the people. Moreover, the people are actually compelled to pay the lumber sharks for denuding the forest lands. Instead of holding the valuable trees that are left us, we have to give a bounty to their appropriations and encourage them to be as wasteful as they please.

"It is very easy to ascertain what wages ought to be paid. It is easy to find how much it costs for good, wholesome food, for decent clothing, for rent to take care of the children.

Several species of mushrooms grow iu such a fashion, on our lawns and meadows that they often form regular and almost perfect rings or circles. These are generally called "fairy rings," but the term should only be applied to the rings of one particular species, known to botanists as Mar as mi us Oreades. To suit, however, our own purpose we shall name these fungi fairy caps as to their form, and fairy bread as to their substance, for no dainty lips of our modern fairies should despise the delicate morsel these plants offer us either in their natural state or when prepared for the table by an expert hand.

The little mushrooms of the fairy tribe deserve a great deal more attention than they have received in the past. Their peculiar habits, their pleasing appearance and great usefulness as a delicate food, should make them our favorites and proteges. We have also the opportunity of observing a number of fairy rings in our own beautiful city. Many private and public parks are decorated with them. The great circle oil the Mall and the white house grounds have many of these, though they might be obliterated for a time.

Senator Morrill seems to have been particularly favored by the fairies. They have planted not less than three rings on the lawn in front of his residence on Thomas circle. Persistent little plants they are, these fairy caps. Once they have a foothold on a favorable spot they will stay for years, enlarging their circle with each new crop. Their presence is rather detrimental to the sod and grass will not thrive inside such rings.

The process by which fairy caps manage to place themselves, in spite of numerous obstacles, in circle fashion cannot be satisfactorily explained here, but undoubtedly the radiating rootlets are the principal factor in producing this little wonder of nature. It requires but little discrimination to identify any single fungus of the fairy tribe. We might almost say a blind man can readily distinguish it from the other common lot. of small fungi, such as lawn nails, Ink drippers and extinguishers, all with delicate thin stems. In the fairy caps the stem is also thin, but strong, fibrous, often twisted, and the lower part hairy and almost woody.

In pulling a cap from the ground, the root stalk comes always out and all that may be attached to it. Groups of from three to five frequently grow together, anu are solidly attached to each other at the base of the stem. The color of the cap is not unlike chamois leather or untanned kid; the underside and upper part of stem are nearly of the same color aa the cap. It being a white-spored fungus, the underlining does not turn dark or black, but remains light brown. What entitles these mushrooms more than any other species to the name of fairy caps is their unusual faculty of reviving and regaining almost their original freshness whenever they are placed by the stem in water, and also owing to their preservative qualities, as they remain in good condition indefinitely when kept in a dry place.

To persuade yourself that fairy bread is really sweet and pleasant, just taste a small piece of it raw, and you will soon learn that it is good and wholesome as welL A bunch of these plants give a more agreeable flavor to meat sauce than do the French champignons. If you ara so fortunate as to find 'enough of them to make a meal a very dainty dish can be made by frying them and serving them on toast. The caps should be cut off from the stems, then thoroughly rinsed and be kept in salted water for two hours, after which they are in a condition to be prepared for the feast of modern fairies and other mortals.

No contest has been so eagerly watched as has this battle of giants a great corporation against a great state.

If the state wins the decision of the Uuited States courts one great point will been settled that corporations doing business with and for the public must take the public into their confidence and refrain from robbery. No man understands the importance of securing this decision better than does Attorney General Boyle, who has put more hard work into the stock yards case than he ever put into any other case in his life, and made a fight against a combination of the most eminent lawyers in the west which is a credit to Kansas and an honor to the office he holds. In conclusion, I wish to say one word about Kansas City newspapers. As soon as it was shown that the contest was to be an honest attempt to regulate rates upon reasonable lines, all the papers of that city commenced to give fair and impartial reports of the testimony and other proceedings and have continued to do so to this day, thus vast majority of the people will be with into small homes and larm houses and young and determined, settled on the Indian lauds included in the body ine eyes ot eastern investment companies were attracted and all too soon the bubble of speculation began to float over her waving fields. This was not a lucky day for Kansas.

For, when the bubble hurst its withering atoms were scattered from border to border, casting blight wherever they fell. Being belter equipped with natural and arti-licial rescources the east breasted the storm and did not suffer as did the west, which was swept by a financial wave as pitiless as the burning winds from the alkali deserts of the J3ad lands. Still the courageous and resourceful inhabitants of that unfavored section are emerging from their travail of debt and hostile natural conditions. Kansas, both east and west, has learned to know itself. One section is pushing its matchless agricultural and mineral resources steadily toward the fullest productiveness; the other is developing the cattle industry and maturing plans for a system of irrigation.

An honest, efficient and economical administration of the political affairs of the state has materially aided her people in interpreting nature's motives aright. There is nothing now within view, barring the harrassing trade conditions which the venality, stupidity and recklessness of the general government and the greedy corporations it favors have placed upon the people of Kansas, in common with those of every other section, that can stop the onward progress of this great state. All honor and credit to her sturdy and preservering citizens. With their own hands and brains they have wrought out their political salvation.
