The recent alarming spread of that dire epidemic, smallpox, throughout different sections of the country hns been traced by physicians and sanitarians in many instances, directly to tho moldy and rotting' layers of paper nnd paste which cover the walls of many houses. The practice of laying layer after layer of paper on a wall, using common fiour paste, is especially calculated to crentc homes for disease germs. People could not do more to effect such a result if they tried. Tho rotting vegetable matter affords caves from which arc ready to dart forth the infection nt every opportunity. There is no excuse for this practice, as walls and ceilings can be coated with a pure, cleanly nnd sanitary material like Alabastine, for instance, nt no greater expense. Alabastine is u rock-bas- e cement, which incorporates itself with the wall or celling. It is easily applied, comes ready to mix "with cold water, requires no washing or scraping before renewing or and is beautiful, safe.

THE GOLD STANDARD. .'vill Not lie nt All Improved by the Senator Stewart 1'olitta Out the Con- WcitkncNH of the Ciiiihc Sew litnv I'owcr of tlie llnrikH. trnctlup: the Circulation. What is meant by the hackneyed phrase, "the gold standard," has not been fully explained, says Senator Stewart, of Nevada. When we speak of standard weights and measures our meaning is plain, because a yard is a fixed length and a quart or a bushel contains an ascertained quantity of space. Money, to be a standard in the sense of accurate measurement of value, must be of such volume as will always bear a uniform relation to the aggregate of property for sale. To contend that money which is of a greater purchasing power nt one time than it is at another is a just standard of value is like contending that a yardstick 00 feet long, if made of some particular kind of wood, would be the same standard of measurement ns a yardstick three feet long. If money can be an honest standard measure of value, and the same money can measure five times as much property in the aggregate at one time as at another, why may not a gallon which includes five times as much cubic space at one time ns it does at another be an ticcurate measure of u ... wx N The national banks lmvc nlwnys hnd the same privilege of reducing tbeir notes, if rudiiudnut. under the existing laws that, tlioy will have uudor the law now being discussed in the senate. They have only to withdraw their United States bonds from the treasury department nrt1 surrender their circulation. There is nothing whatever in the new law, nor could there be, to make this more easy. On the contrary, by a large proposed reduction in the tax on circulation, and by increasing the limit of the notes iss.ued to the par value of the United States bonds deposited with th treasury, instead of Jit) per cent., ns now a great inducement will be offered to the banks to enlarge Iheir circulation nnd thereby to promote- inflation and speculation under ordinary conditions. It is estimated that on the passage of the law there 0 will be a rapid increase of from to $300,000,000 (some people say more) in the note issues of the bonks. As regards the elasticity of the present system, it would be impossible to point out the slightest superiority possessed by the Bank of England in its currency regulation over the American banks. The Bank of Germany has certain privileges in this respect not possessed by either the Bank of England or the American banks, but these advantages hav not saved the Berlin market from a more deeply seated depression than Wall street has suffered c in from. In fact it was the London and Berlin that precipitated the American panic, as nil business men. know, regardless of any "currency system." The bill before the United States congress, while opening the door to an enormous increase in the issue of bank notes, at the same time provides for a probable heavy increase sooner or later in the legal tender money of the country in which the bank deposits and notes are payable. When gold is withdrawn from the United States treasury in exchange for legal tender notes for export, these notes are to become impounded and withdrawn permanently from circulation, except as reissued against deposit of gold coin.

The Bank of France discounts its gold reserve and its rate of discount by tendering silver instead of gold in payment of it. notes and deposits. The United States, on the other hand, proposes to degrade her existing silver money, to put a black murk upon it, and to reduce it virtually to token money, redeemable In gold nt the will of the bullion broker and exporter, thusconverting what is now a currency asset into a liability; this, too, without the shadow of a demand for it from the people of the country, to whom the silver, circulatingin the form of silver certificates, has always given perfect satisfaction. There has never been the slightest discount or doubt connected witli these certificates. On the contrary they were worth during our greatest currency, panic that of 1893 a. slight premium over gold In the market, by reason of their greater convenience for holding, or for shipment to other cities. This form of circulating medium is so completely absorbed by the people that each month's limited coinage of silver is eagerly sought after hi the form of certificates, and the treasury has virtually no free silver in its raerve (vide United States n to-da- y quantity? The contention of the advocates of the gold standard rests upon the assumption that the quality of gold is the only question considered in comThey deny that mercial exchanges. either the supply or the demand for gold has any effect in estimating the quantity of any particular commodity which n given amount of gold will buy. Their contention also assumes that if all the mountains were gold an ounce of gold would buy the same amount of wheat, cotton, or other products that it will now buy. This is the intrinsic value theory of men who look as wise ns Harrison, Cleveland or Bynum when they announce to the world the necessity of money possessing intrinsic value. The secretary of the treasury is not so absolutely ignorant of monetary science ns his contention that the value of gold never changes would seem to indicate. In his reply to the resolution of the two houses of congress respecting his transactions with certain New York banks lie gives as a reason for depositing the money of the government in national banks that it is necessary to do so to avoid contracting the circulation, and that to keep it in the treasury would disturb the business of the country. It seems a little strange that the secretary can understand that locking up money in the treasury vaults disturbs business and at the sante time thinks it is necessary to use only the commodity gold upon which to stamp money, although every foreign financial trouble takes gold out of the country and deposits it in foreign vaults. He contends that money to be good money must be made of the same material that all other nations use for thut purpose, and he can see no inconvenience in its withdrawal from circulation in this country bj- foreigners, while he understands that hoarding money in the treasury is injurious - to business. In his lectures on gold he confines his arguments in favor of the exclusive use of that metal to its peculiar qualities, claiming that it possesses intrinsic value, while in administering the treasury he regards the volume of money in circulation as of paramount importance, and deposits the surplus of the treasury in banks to keep it in use and prevent contraction. Still, he contends that no matter how much gold or how little gold Is produced, its volume .hen used as money does not affect its pur- chasing pover. of ft Month.
