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 ' '.' tlie in:opf would carry up 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 onditions whose policies ' . . : v too innovaiive for a ! . , - , . i , srCiCec aeii prosperous luiuo'uui irovei niiient. i ne senatorial. i - mi more compre- i hCD-.ive e v " i i body effects a more of )i'ogress in the )opah .r policies. Veh.i'' always thought the lathers budded wisely and ' i.',; take well to a change 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, however spasmodic. 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. CrKU A COLD JIN ONE DAY Tale Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets.

Bowed by the weight of centu ries he leans Upon his hoe and gazes upon the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face, And on his back the burden of the world. Who made him dead to rapture and despair, A thing that grieves not and that never hopes, Stolid and stunned, a brother to the ox? Who loosened and let down this brutal jaw? 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 land, 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 with light? Down all the stretch of Hell to its last gulf There is no shape more terrible than this 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 universe. What gulfs between him and the seraphim! Slavo of the wheel of labor, what to him Are Plato and the ewing oi Pleiades? 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 stoop; Through this, dread s:...po hu manity betrayed, Plu ndered, profaned a I d i s i ; i -herited, Cries protest to the .) o.' the W orld, A protest that is also prophecy.

Read what the noted Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe- j viller has to say for Harris Lithiar springs. Asheviile, N. C.r April 24, 1893. 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.

Why suf fer when yon have the guarantee? M L Marsh, Agent for Concord. 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.
