JULY 6, 1892
Parsons, Kua., Jane 6, 1893.
To the members of the judiciary com
mittee of the F. S. A. of Texas, and
The j 'idieiary committee will convene
at Bazette on Monday before lHe con-
vening of the F. S. A., to transact the
business of s«id committee. All per-
sons having business with said com-
mittee are hereby notified to present it
at that time in order that the commit-
tee may be able to make a fall report to
the F. 8. A. while in session.
All parties expecting to attend the
next. State Alliance, to be held at Baz-
ett, Texas, and camp at their own ex-
pense, will please notify the committee
on arrangements not later than July 15.
T. 8. D'Arman, Chairman.
0. A. McWilliajup, 8*c'y.
The Mercury is all the go in this
neck of the woods. It is the boss pa-
per.—Geo. Nelson, Livingston, Texas.
Burnett county Alliance is going to
have an old time campmeeting and
speaking at the town of Burnet on
July 20-22. Everybody invited.—F.
J. Hundley, Burnet, Texas.
Salem Alliance, Blanco county, is
on a boom. We have 45 members
and are receiving new ones at every
meeting. Our county Alliance met at
this place and was a grand success.—
H. Lewis, Sandy, Texas.
The populists in this section are
neither dead nor sleeping, but are as
firm as the Bock of Gibralter; and I
believe this is the case all over the
state. God bless the noble old Mer-
cury—I believe it is an instrument in
his hands to enlighten the masses.—
S. B. Lamans, Mflford, Texas.
Becently I have received copies of
reform papers from nearly every state
in the union and yesterday a copy of
the Mercury came to ht nd. Now,
while all the papers I have received
are ably edited, and well calculated
to educate the people in the impor-
tance and necessity of our great re-
form movement. I am forced to con-
fess that the Mercury leads them
all in plain illustration of the facts,
and needs of the people. The discus-
siou of the "money plank" by Hon.
Thos. V. Cator, should be read by
every farmer and wage-earner in the
United States. Your illustration of
the operation of the national banking
system shown in the transactions of
Mes°rs. "Wolf" and "Lamb" is so
plain that the most stubid can see at
a glance that the national banking
scheme is the most infamous fraud
ever perpetrated upon the people, and
I believe that when the masses come
to understand the true relation of the
national banks to the people they will
demand their abolishment and the
adoption of the more rational and just
plaus advocated by the peoples party.
Believiug the Mercury to be a power
in the land, and not wishing to miss
a copy of it in the luture, I wish to
enter my name upon your books as a
life subscriber.—C. W. Pagett, Inde-
Deafness Cannot bs Cored
by local applications, as 'hey cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There 1b only one
way to cure Deafness and th«t is by oonsUtu-
tionul remedies. Deafness Is causea by an In-
flamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets in-
flamad y< n have a rumbling sound or imper-
fect hearing, and when it is entirely c osed
Deafness is the result, and unless the inflam-
mation can be taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will be de-
stroyed forever: nine cases out of ten a e
oau e<1 by cntarrh which is nothing but an in
flame dc^ndltlnn of the nmooua surfaces.

not be cured by Ball's Catarrh Cure. Send for

$3,000 A Year.
Dear Readers:—While shifting
from place to place through the
west seeking employment, I made
the acquaintance of an agent who
claimed to be making $3,000 per
year plating with gold, silver or
nickel on jewelry, watches and ta-
bleware. He very kindly gave me
the address of H. F. Delno & Co.,
of Columbus, Ohio. I since bought
a plating outfit from them for $5
and from the beginning, I have
made from Í4 to $10 per day.

TO THE SECRETARIES OF COUNTY AL-
Brethren:—I hope it is not out of
place to remind you that the 30th of
this month closes our third quarter,
and is the last before the meeting of
the State Alliance on the 15th of Au-
gust next. That vour county Alli-
ances elect their delegati s to the state
Alliance at your meetings next month.
That custom, if not law, has consti-
tuted the state executive committee
the committee on credentials, and
that it is your duty to make out the
credentials of your delegates in du-
plicate and send one copy to the chair-
man of the executive committee and
hand the other copy to the delegate.
The copy sent to the chairman of the
executive committee should be in his
hand by the 25th of July, and I hope
you will not fail to furnish him with
them by that time. All the dues to
the national and state Alliance should
be collected this quarter and be in
the hands of the state secretary by
the first day of August at furthest,
and brethren, you should not forget
that your county Alliances are not en-
titled to representation in the state
Alliance until their dues are paid,
and that the committee on credentials
cannot recommend the seating of your
delegates until they are assured by
the state secretary, that she has the
money in her nands. The county
secretaries will excuse me for being
thus particular in urging them to be
prompt in attending to their duties
when I inform them that the quar-
terly reports for the quarter ending on
March 31st, have been coming in from
about the middle of April until with-
in the last three days when they were
all due by the 1st daj
