BHOWK, ' farmer from the burdens that now weigii with such crushing force lt«tter From J. L. Hlefcs. Abilene, Texas, Aug. let, '91. Editor News .—In yonr paper of this week I find a paragraph credited to the Aberdeen Examiner, which runs as follows : "If the sub-treasaiy scheme was adopted^ history would repeat itself. The big farmers and speculators woald ase it for all it is worth and grow fat and rich upon it, while the little fellows who are doing all the howling would be left with the bag to hold, as nsnal. It has been this way in every scheme and plan concocted, and always will be. 'The survival of the fittest' is the decree of civilization as well as nature, and the little fish will glide into the jaws of the big fish as long as the world moves." Now, if the above is to be accepted as logic, it is a dark day, in-millions who toil. Everybody Knows Tbem. Oomaadie C^ef.
