Money i am daily making Loans on improved real estate in Northwestern Nio at six per cent interest these Loans Are made on either Long or Short time with privilege of paying Back in partial payments before due and stopping interest on on the amount paid. No life insurance required. It was the evening of the third Day the doctor had been Home to look after nos patient but before he left the girl had named the Day and he was Tho happiest Man on Earth. Several of Tho neighbors who were acquainted with Squire Johnston a visitors had gathered in to spend the evening to help drink cider talk politic and Trade stories. One hard featured individual had saddled the Tariff question on the judge a Early in the session. This hard featured individual was a Democrat it so happened that the judge was also a Democrat Bat believed in and advocated Protection to american industries Aud american labor. John was the name of the individual who put the Tariff Curry comb to the Back of his Honor. He started in with the Story of Deacon Smiths protected ram. The Deacon had a pet ram. When that ram was sheared the fleece weighed twelve pounds. An Eastern buyer came along and paid him $2.40 for if. I his4twelve Pound fleece was taken Down East and made into a snit of clothes. That fall it was sent Down to the country store in Deacon Smiths neighbourhood. Now the Deacon had intended that he i would buy a suit of clothes for his son John with the Money he had received for the Wool. Have to escape the life they Are now leading is to die. They May not expect to build Homes they in by not expect to marry Tho women of their Choice and raise up children around them. Of no their life blood is destined to glut the maw of a nation that has for centuries been fattening upon the blood of her convicts and Labouring men. What would be Tho result Here if the Tariff duty was removed from Wool the Fiock roasters would be brought into direct Competition with the Oon Voct Shep herds of England and they would be forced to abandon their flocks thousands of men and women who Are working in our Woolen factories and who have been Able to Purchase Homes under Tho fostering in of fences of Protection would be forced to desert their looms. Our flocks would disappear from our Fields and spiders would Seal the doors of our factories with Silken cords. These i but to continue. After Selling some farm produce he added the amount to what he had received for the Wool. In All it amounted to $22.50. With this he started out to buy a suit of clothes and pay his i taxes. Now Tho Deacon was the owner of a fifty acre lob and it was so poor that it Only supported one pet ram and he had been raised by hand. The Deacon found that an imported suit just took his pile and that an american made suit of the same Grade Cost the same Money. The store keeper informed him that a a duty was what made clothing so High. The old Deacon objected but finally took the clothes and then Cut Cord Wood to pay his taxes which amounted to $35 for the year. Would not that be the result unless free american shepherds would be willing to accept the Mouthful of bread and cup of water accorded Tho convict Shepherd of Englund would not that be the result unless the Busy Happy on i Well paid american labourers Woald be willing to accept the gelded pittance of the English factory hands if English Gold could sweep away Protection to our industries hundreds and thousands of our working men would be quickly reduced to the very condition of servitude that they left England to escape. That is what she wants and let it be said to the everlasting shame lot every Democrat in America that she is attempting and is using the democratic party As an instrument to bring about such a result. There has never been an hour since Tho declaration of Independence that England has not been scheming Ito put the Collar of serfdom upon America. When conspirators attempted to overthrow the Republic England built and Armod vessels with the Hopes that such an end might he consummated. She Lent her powerful influence she opened her Strong boxes to armed rebels. Now she has the audacity to come to us and ask us to become a distinctly agricultural people by closing up our a factories and buying our Manila toured goods of her. She expects to win intelligent artisans Farmers and businessmen to accept free Trade by sending out pied hessians to spread such tales As a Deacon Smith and his protected a m. A English pirates rolled like molten Lead in my veins and i was bound to win or die once More we were out of the Meadow and driving through Tho Woods like bar men Birds. A second time we leaped into Mea Low. Just a i cleared the Fen it heard my wife say til bet my Money on that old dog in the ticking pants a heavens How that shot Hurt me. It stiffened the Muscles of my logs like steel hands and i ran with Tho Speed of a Demon Tho bruised air whimpered like a spanked babe As i whirled through in Tho hounds had Long since Given up the Chase and together with my Wile made up an interesting audience in the Meadow. But again we pass through Tho Woodland and Tho Fox sends Bauk a cry of distress As we Clear the Meadow Fence and i knew then that to was my meat seventy Yards from the Fence i picked up that Fox from the ground As he flashed along Uke a Streak of Light Ning and then and there i throttled him it was a cruel thing to do but Ray English blood was up and nothing but a taste of alien blood would Cool it Down.

A John a paid the judge that a Well i done to know but what i a answer directly yes or a to Tell you the truth judge i think it is a darned lie but its a pretty Good Story to Tell to the Fellers that done to know anything about the Tariff. A a a look Here my Fine fellow that is one great objection i have to our democratic leaders. They Are always aiming to get hold of something in a political Way under false pretences which is fittingly exemplified in this miserable fabrication that you Are peddling around As a True Story. The Point you hold up Here is that the Tariff had raised the Price of clothes to $22.50 per suit and that Deacon Smith had to put up that sum or allow his son to go naked. Done to you know sir that you can go to any of the clothing stores in the county town and get a first class suit of clothes at from $10 to 18? a yes i do for this suit i have on Only Cost me $12.�?� a a done to you know that you can buy a first class snit of clothes at from $3 to $10 for your boy a Aud done to you know that you cannot touch imported goods of the same Grade for that Money a a a Yea a a did you Ever know of a time when clothing was As cheap As it is now a a Well i done to know As i Ever a no i guess not and yet this is a time when every class of labor Farmers included Are clamouring for Protection. Farmers want their products protected and Labouring men protest against being reduced to the same level with the pauper labor in the old world by allowing the goods of that country to come in free of duty. Take the one item of steel if you want an example of How free Trade works. Before there was any Tariff on steel we were paying England Over $100 per ton for that commodity and owls had built their nests in the cup alos of our Planta then come protective Tariff and the Price of steel quickly dropped from $ i x to $20. And yet the free Trade leaders Tell you that the Tariff is a tax. A if free Trade prevailed a a said the colonel a that portion of the Smith family that had taken to raising sheep would not be Worth a dam and there Woald not be a Shepherd by the name of Smith that would not have Good reason to lament the fact that a kind Providence had used a certain Indian Maiden named pocohontas As an instrument to save the life of a certain John Smith who was in some Way connected with a settlement on the James River in Virginia. You see John that Story of a Deacon Smiths protected ram recalls an event in my own life that May be of some interest to you and the rest of the company present. We Hen i was first married i lived on a farm. I resided there until at a conference of my friends it was decided that i was Cut out for a preacher lawyer or some other session but not for a Farmer. Pro Yure ii lots like hoes a five brighter Chhe More Sorrit _ who use sap Lff never seem to grow a a amp key a a Complete wreck of Domestic happiness has often resulted from badly washed dishes from an unclean Kitchen or from trifles which seemed Light As air. But by these things a Man often judges of his wife a Devotion to her family and charges her with general neglect when he finds her careless in these particulars. Many a Home owes a urge part of its Thrifty neatness and its consequent happiness to Sapolio. Set grocers often substitute cheaper goods for Sapolio to make better profit. Send Back such articles and insist on having just you a what for How much less than $10 could you expect to get a suit of clothes even if the products of the world were allowed to come in free of duty England gets her Wool from her convict colonies. Every Pound of it is tainted with the sweat of some miserable wretch who has been transported for murder arson or robbery. Bare existence is the Only tribute granted those unfortunates that Are pouring a Golden tide into the Lap of the red handed harlot across the sea. The factories where this Wool is Woven into cloth is Only one step from the poor House. The poor hollowed eyed men women and children who drive England a looms have Only two chances to pass from under the Rule of the debauched mistress free Trade one is to die and the other to come to America. Thousands of emigrants Are crowding our Shore they Are coming in one Long unbroken Stream. They Are coming in Clouds like Birds of passage that ride the Spring gales out of the South land. If free Trade would be so much better for America How does it come that workingmen Are straining every nerve to get away from free Trade countries and locate in a land where american labor american Farmers and american industries Are protected ? do you understand that but to the Story. We had been greatly plagued with foxes which had carried off chickens lambs and Young pigs to such an extent that i concluded to get a pack of hounds and rid the neighbourhood of pests. Well i had Many famous chases but some How never caught any foxes. At least one morning i went to the Fields and found that three of my Best lambs were missing. That started me on the War path and calling the dogs i hastened away with the determination of killing one Fox at least before the Sun went Down. It was not Long before the hounds were in full cry. After running straight away for two Miles the Fox circled and crossed a ten acre lot close to the House. It made me wild to see How far behind the dogs were running. The More i thought about it the Wilder i got and finally discarding my coat and shirt i determined to enter the race myself and see of i could not inject a Little life into it.
