ELECTION OF SENATORS.
lu another column will be seen
the views of Col. Waddell and
his conditional candidacy. We
suppose that the Democratic
pr i y is committed to the policy
of plotting United States Sena
tor hy popular vote, but we
con Toss we have not yet been
won to the innovation. We take
if th:;t the old ways should stand
till wisdom demands the new.
Ti" founders of this great
republic seem to have looked
well to every step taken in the
formulation of a system of pop
ular government, not too liable
eh- :;es and innovations. In
ste., of one legislative body
two .veio conceived, or rather
one legislative power composed
of iwo branches. One of these it
was; v. eived should be of repre
sentatives of the peopie directly,
the other of the several States in
t'e unitei and a.s far removed as
' .com the direct popular
voe. Hence ibc election of
n. ientatives by the people
once ecery two years, while the
... ' -i i ....
Nee " rnnvf enfM e i iTrieers;
ele' cie evei'y six years.
Thus . r'Mn-esentatives fresh

i e C;.c-ce ess iiie sentimenls and
e m'c; oi -ne neree '. inn
ihe.e are liable to bo the results
of tidal waves and abnormal

i t he seiieme.
11 is easy to see that if the
sudden impulses of the populace
hhali be enacted into law as
se ins to us contemplated by
those zealous for the new sys
tem, we have but a few more
ueeei : s:-.ry and very easy steps
to the abolition of the Senate and
legislation by one body of men
representative of popular will,
The pledging of legislators in
advance, that Col. Waddell terms
machinery, we' regard as an un
fortunate perversion of the
scheme of our government.
We would rather draw nearer
to the original plan than to
further diverge from it, however.

"THE MAN WITH THE HOE,"
BY EDWIN MARK 1 1 AM.
Bowed by the weight of centu
ries he leans
Upon his hoe and gazes upon the
The emptiness of ages in his
And on his back the burden of
Who made him dead to rapture
A thing that grieves not and that
Stolid and stunned, a brother to
Who loosened and let down this
Whose was the hand that slanted
back this brow?
Whose breath blew out the light
within this brain?
Is this the Thing the Lord God
made and gave
To have dominion over sea and
To trace the stars and search the
heavens for power;
To feel the passion of Eternity?
Is this the dream He dreamed
who shaped the suns f
And pillared the blue firmament
Down all the stretch of Hell to
its last gulf
There is no shape more terrible
More tongued with censure or
the world's blind greed p
More filled with signs and por
tents for the soul
More fraught with menace to the
What gulfs between him and the
Slavo of the wheel of labor, what
Are Plato and the ewing oi
What the long reaches of the
peaks of song,
The rift of dawn, the red redden
ing of the rose?
Through this dread shape the
suffering ages look,
Time's tragedy is in that aching
Through this, dread s:...po hu

Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe- j

An extended cii?;. cal use of Har ris
Ijithia Water prompts me to
the siatement thai- I regard it as-
one of the best if not the best,
Lithia "Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use-in the Rheu
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly yours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS," M. D.
We guarantee that one glass of
Harris Lithia carbonated water
will relieve any case of indiges
tion in one- minute or our agent
is authorized to refund! you the
money, or if taken after each
meal will cure the most stubborn
case of indigestion. Why suf

We akp: not sure as to the ex.
tent of pleasure derived by our
readers from poetic quotations
that we occasionally insert.
Poetry is to the emotional soul a
well-spring of joy like- that of
harmony of sound to the ear and
of color to the eye. No more
exquisite sense of beauty in na
ture and art s afforded than that
from the poet's strains. Yet not
all like music, painting nor
sculpture and poems of consider
able length have been avoided.
This accounts for the fact that
The Man With the Hoe" has
not found its way into our col
umns before. There is a sublim
it about this poem that is well
worth the studious reading,
though, it must be a reader that
reads it to , etch enough of the
spirit of the author to keep
within tiie echoes of his match
less, though somewhat plaintive,
song. There are extant, too,
sonic parallels and some of a
parodic nature that are quite en
joyable and should follow, not
precede the original.
