should be sent to the chain gang
for stealing the silver plank, but he
gays it is dead, and therefore should
not be punished.
He said he stood squarely on the
St. Louis platform. It demanda
bimetallism by international agree
ment. The Democrats and Popu
lists say America and all civilized
nations demonetized silver, yet sil
ver circulates freely in them all at
face value and in America it is worth
as much as a gold dollar. This
money oneetion is an international

would flow out. He said we have
631,000,000 in gold that will flow
out and according to estimates it
would take 13 years to coin enough
silver to take its place. They say
make more mints. We are taxed to
build these mints to coin bullion
free for rich men.
He said the Democrats always
want something free and always
some new thing. He said in '60
they wanted a free fight and got it.
Next they wanted the free educa
tional Blair bill, then free whiskey,
then free trade, and now free silver,
but they did not want free elections
in North Carolina nor free negroes.
He claimed that the men who
have the bullion ought to pay fir
the coinage of it.

publican party wanted only gold as
a circulating medium. He said they
only wanted to make the gold a

ever before and that under the pres

Democrats are friends to free silver

To the Editor of The Standard :
Dear Sir: I think it but justice
that you publish the following :
It is not my purpose to enter into
any controversy with you on the
subject discussed in my sermon. I
do want to state however that it was
by the request ot your reporter, and
not at my own suggestion, that the
Bynopsis of my sermon was published.
By the facts in that sermon I
"stand or fall," And I give myself
credit for being both kind and
"charitable :" and only the love that
I have for suffering humanity which
is now groaning and dying under
Democratic and Republican liquor
laws, causes' me to dare to put
myself in the position to be called
"repulsiv' and uncharitable."
You do not like tu be accused of
"voting for liquor." If you will
show us how any man can vote for
any party which gives its support
to the liquor traffic, and whose lead
ers are in league, with the traffic,
without voting for liquor, you will
make for yourself a name worthy
to be handed down to posterity as
the eighth "wise man" in the world's
With this thought I am done ; it
is much easier to criticize a speaker
than it is to meet and answer his
hard, cold facts.
Yonrs in love with all mankind.

For years you and your fathers
have found it of sterling worth.
It is and always has been put up
only by J. H. Zeilin & Co. Take
none but the genuine. It has the

and nothing else ia tho same, and
nothing so good.

Anyone who under
knows the need of
a counter-balance to
equalize power and keep the machinery
going witn a steady even motion. With
out it the machinery would wrench itseli
out of shape. It is the same way with the
mnchinery of the human -body : it need
to go on steadily, and regularly to be iD
good health not by fits and starts. The
sudden wrenching medicines which peo
ple sometimes take to overcome consti
pation, give a violent strain to the intes
tines which weakens them, so that tht
costiveness is afterwards worse than be
What costive people need is a natural
laxative like Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets
which are powerful without being vio
lent. They move the bowels gradually
and comfortably but surely. You cnu
regulate the dose one, two or three
"Pellets" exactly as you need. They
strengthen the intestines to do their own
work, so that after their movements hav
become regular they keep on naturally
The " Pleasant Pellets" gently stimu
late and invigorate the liver to throw off
biliousness ; and tone up the stomach to
secrete the digestive juices, and over
come dyspepsia. The entire digestive,
or alimentary, tract is put in motion in
the regular steady way of nature and
health. This is what makes the " Pleas
ant Pellets" so immensely superior to
the numerous purging pills which wrench
and weaken the system. Druggists may
get more profit out of those other pillj
but you don't.
The " Pleasant Pellets " are tiny sugar
coated granules 40 or more in a little
one-inch vial tightly corked, hence, al
ways fresh and reliable.
