Deposit banks are little more than
clearing houses, and the laws per
mit their owners to pay nine tenths
of their debts with moaey literally
made by themselves—out of nothing
—which they coolly call "liquid
capital," or "bank credit," although
it is neither capital nor credit. The
real nature and far reaching effects
of his modern practice are not
clearly understood by one in twenty
even of the bankers themselves—
and none of them dares discuss it
publicly. The most of those that
do not fully understand it feel that
there is something wrong about it;
and those that do understand it
know that, if people once begin to
study "the system," they will de-
mand radical changes in it—or its
entire abolition. — Tom Watson's
The Populists in Texas under the
leadership of state Chairman Eager
and State Organizer H. L. Bentley
are hard at work, and meeting with
Publishers | fine success organizing Populists
clubs in the townships and school
districts of the state. They have
set July 15th as a day for Populists
throughout the state to meet in their
respective school districts, and if
they not already organized a club,
to do so and do their utmost to get
the names, of the nearly 200,000
populists in the state who at one
time walked up to the polls and
cast a Peoples Party ballot, enrolled
on the club lists. This is a work
that should be under taken in every
state iti the union and it is being
taken up by many of the states. It
should be started in Oklahoma and
Cleveland County should lead out
in the work. A Populist club
should be organized in every school
district in this county and it should
be organized now. A Populist club
membership of 500 secured in this
county before next January would
make this a Populist county good
and strong by next election. The
people no longer oppose Populistic
ideas, in fact, the vast majority of
the people admit favoring the same.
Ten years ago you could find ten
men opposing the ideas advanced
by the populists, where you find one
man to day. Ten years ago the
Populists were organized in this
county and not-with standing the
fierce and we might say honest op-
position of men who believed that
ideas advanced by the Populists
were unsafe and unsound, yet the
Populist candidates received a plur-
ality of the votes in the county.

Some writer has nuul that "The first miller
emerging from I■ is lavage state, with no
thought aave hunger, plucked the wheat
from the stock, and, usinir his teeth for lnili-
•ttines, ground the first grist for a customer
who would not he denied—hie stomach."
Thus gaining experience by test in the fu#d
line, it would he only natural for this miller
to lay tip a quantity of grain against an hour
of need. Just when he commenced grinding
his wheat in the rude stoua mortar and
moistening the flour preparatory t> baking
It in the ashas of his cump fire, and just
when it was found tlmt an old piece of dough
in a fresh hatch made it better or "leavened"
it, is beyond t he reach of historians. Cer-
tain it is that though the principle was the
lame thousands of years ago as it is to-day,
it has remnined for the insLers of Yeast
Foam to supply a yeast with all tb* tru*
leavening powers minus the properties that
producesour, "runny" or soggy bread. Tliit
is the yeaat that took the first grand prize
at the St. Louis Exposition, anil revolution-
ises the bread making in every home whers
it is used because much better bread can be
made with it from any flour.
Yeast Foam is purely vegetable, being
made af the best malt, corn, hops and othtr
healthful ingredients. The factory is also
the cleanest and best equipped in the world.
This yeast is the only kind that preserver
in the bread all the delicious flavor and
nutritive value of the wheal. The bread
made with it is always sweet and wholesome
and stays moist until used. Forty loaveaof
bread can be made from one 5c package.
The makers of Yeast Foam ar: giving out a
new book called "Good Bread; How to
Make It." This little hook, invaluable in
its way,has twenty-six illustrations in colors,
and tells how to make all kinds of bread,
biscuih, buns and rolls, as veil as contain-
ing other recipes which will be found in-
valuable in the homo. The way 0! prepar-
ing the different recipes is very clear and
comprehensive. The book will be pent free
to any one sending their name ami address,
with a request for same, to the North western
Yeast Company, Chicago, 111. Every wo-
man who bakes should secure a copy.
the reforms. We favor them as well
as you; but they can best be secur-
ed though our old party. From the
history of the past it would seem
that no argument would be neces-
sary to convince anyone that old
parties have left no record of re-
formation. Their history has al-
ways been to drift farther and far
ther away from the people and be-
come the subservient tools of the
classes, until overthrown by an out-
raged and indignate people. An
old party promise of reform is made
under much the same duress as a
poor fellow starving for a drink of
whiskey; but to secure the same
begs you for a dime or a quarter to
get something to eat. It is made to
deceive. In this county we fre-
quently hear an old party man
arguing in favor of government con
trol of the railroads; yet ten years
ago heard this same fellow making
all manner of sport of anyone sug-
gesting even as much as hinting at
government control and the fellow
suggesting government ownership
was a visionary dreamer. In these
days of graft and bribery it aston-
ishes us that anyone should talk
"government control" unless he is
figuring on securing a position for
grafting or ham! outs for influence
or vote. If a man was to step up to
you and say; "I propose to control
your business" what would you say
to him provided he had the power
to enforce his demand. You would
be apt to say to him, "take the busi
ness." Ownership carries with it
the right to control. The two are
inseperabie. Even the attempt to
regulate another man's business is
ar from a success as in the Case of
th; whiskey traffic or fixing railroad
rates. We believe it possible with
but little exertion to secure a Popu
list club membership in this county
of from 1000 to 1500. We b'lieveit
cm be accomplished in two months
time provided the effort is made by
two or three live men in each school
district in the county. The enroll
merit of 10 names in each school
district would mean a club member-
ship of something over 700. We
believe that steps should be taken
and at once to Organize Peoples
Party Clubs and we stand ready to
assist in ev-ry way possible in the
work. Would like hear from Popu-
listf throughout the county and
learn their views. A short letter
along this line, for publication
would be appreciated.
A two percent bond seems like a
light burden. Yet in the thirty years
the United States 2s run they
will transfer from the pockets of the
masses to the money-chests of the
few the stupendous sum of over 300
million dollars. There has been no
good excuse for the United States
being in debt for the last thirty years.
I'lie bulk of the bonds at the close of
the civil war were payable in green-
backs, and as they were bought with
greenbacks should have been so paid
Other bonds could have been easily
paid in what they called for within
ten years from the close of the war
if not sooner. But the bond sys-
tem seems to be popular at Wash-
ington. Whenever there is the least
excuse to issue bonds the printing
presses are set to work. A tempor-
ary shortage in cash could be met
by borrowing money for a year or
two, or issuing greenbacks; but no
short time bonds for the powers
that be at Washington; thirty year
bonds seems to be the rule there.
True, bonds are bought in by the
government sometimes, but a big
premium is paid, sometimes as
much as twenty-five per cent, more
than was received for them. This,
of course, is milk and honey for the
bondholder, but it is hard on other
fellows. In interest on government
bonds, to say nothing of premiums,
the government has drawn from the
peoples' pockets and handed over
to a few, enough money since the
civil war to buy three million nice
homes, wherein could dwell,- free
from landlords' demands, as many
families, embracing fifteen million
souls. But the people seem to like
it. They appear to enjoy sitting
down in their rags and reading
about the millionaires, their wives,
children, horses und dogs, mansions,
yachts, etc., etc. They don't seem
to realize the system that gives one
man's wife a mansion in the city, a
mansion in the cool mountains,
diamonds and silks and dozens of
I servants, gives to their wives p ain
clothing and long hours of toil, and
probably death from worry and
joverwork, when life should not have
been half spent. Some men will
run from a reform paper, and we
don't blame them for wanting to
j keep ignorant of the way they are
| being robbed, if they haven't the
; manhood to stand up and protest.—
