Democracy and Its Opportunities.
In The AUanta Constitution of
Sunday : isV-K,.'gnant': W&lo
pen of Mr. Clark Howell, editor
of The Constitution and member
of the national Democratic coni
mivtee from Georgia. Pointing
out the desirability of Democratic
harmony, The' Constitution ad
dresses itself- to discussion of,
v, . - .iii - "TkL
the Philippine . . question
precating the war, it says it
should be carried to a vigorous
conclusion, now5 that t has been
entered upoir,:bnt that the ' flag
must niean to the Filipino, as " it
means. to all men, freedom, not
conquest, and that "air Demo
crats can unite on a policy which,
giving pledges of independence
to the inhabitants of the Philip
pines, commits our rroveruunjiit
to tiie iaitluul discbre oi U.e
obligations and responsibilities
which it owes to civilization as
the result of its p:vi.U:ti:il oc
cupation of the islands of the
archipelago." " This principle, it
asserts, is. from its v'-ry nature,
of "paramount impo, tance," and
it is the basis for Demount i"
unity. With reference o the
Chicago -platform it is sab1 :
The old issues, winh suuui n-.

the new ones clearly v ad vigor

the currency question cannot be

''nothing can be done with the
currency question at this timer'
This editorial is remarkable
for several things: (1) It de
clares the Philippine question to
Oe, or 'over-snac.owm m
ancc;'' () It favors re-tfiirming
the Chicago platform, bui dis
missing it with a paragraph; (3
It advocates making the next
campaign on the '"newer issues"
which have arisen since the last;
(4) It asserts that nothing can
be done with the currroncy
question at this time; (5) It makes
no reference to trusts as an issue
in the next election.
The editorial as a whole is a
large concession to conservatism
and comes as an agreeable sur
prise from a paper which has
heretofore been distinguished, in
its discussion of the Chicago
platform and especially of 10 to
1, for its intolerance and radi
calism. Charlbtte Observer.

tles of leetrio Bitters has cured Mrs.
Brewer of scrofula, trhioh had caused
her- great suffering for years Terrible
sores would break out on her head and
face, and the best doctors could give no
help; but her cure la complete and her
health is excellent.'' This shows that
thousands have t'proved, that Electric
Bitters is the best blood purifier known.
It's the supreme remedy for eczema,
tetter, salt rneum, ulcers, boils and run
ning sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys
and bowels, expels poisons, help diges

Very interesting reports are
made of a. series of experiments
conducted by Mr. -Hopkins, the
chemist '-of thev agricultural ex
periment station at: JJrbana, ill.
Mr. Hopkins endeavored to as
certain whether the chemical
composition of the corn kernel
can be modified and dnrproved by
TIia most valuable component
parts of the coni kernel are the
carbo.hyrates, which are main

sary to the growth and repair of
the animal body;, and tat, .wnicn
occurs almost exclusively in the.
germ, if corn is' grown' for the
manufacture of starch, glucose,
or alcohol, " it should have the.
largest possible percentage of
carbohydrates. If corn is to be
made into flour the more protein
it contains the better. If it is to
bo used for feeding stock an - in
creased percentage of protein
and of fat is desirable.
The question which Mr. Hop
kins studied and which he claims
to l ave solved satisfactorily is :
i an tne corn grower, by pursu
ing similar methods, increase the
percentage of starch or of pro
tein in his grain, so as to be able
to otfor to the distiller or the
stock raiser an article specially
lilted "m titoir purposes V If the
corn i :.' (; is ah'... to do that he
!; c nd I igher price for
ai product. The glucose manu
facturer will pay a little more
per bushel for grain which he is
satisfied contains a specially
high percentage of carbohy
drates. After a series of experiments
extending over three years Mr.
Hopkins is convinced that by
proper selection of seed steadily
kept up the percentage of any of
the component parts of corn can
be increased or diminished as
may be desired.
It is easy to select by mechan
ical inspection with either high
or low percentage or protein, fat
, )r starch. An intelligent farmer
may therefore pick out the seed
whir' are richest, m that con
sihuent which he desires his corn

Hopkins has shown by
acLiral experiment that this can
be successfully, done. Lie be
":; e.s that his discovery will be
oi" g valm to farmers, and it
iias attracted much attention in
