We think that a careful examina
tion of the fk'im-s ol the last ele ction
held in Noith Carolina will show that
the democratic party was in the mi
nority. It is equally apparent that it
has been in the minority for some
years. The cause of this was un
questionably the defection in its
ranks. The ijomj; out from
the democracy of some thousands of
voters threw the democracy
into the minority. All know what
unfortunate results have followed and
what jjreat wrongs have been visited
upon the state, upon the people of all
parties. Society is so organized and
government so operates that wrongs
cannot fall altogether upon political
opponctns, but all must share bad
consequences ifnot altogether at least
in part. If iniquities abound the
men who cause them cannot escape
untouched. The fires that burn one
must burn all.
In looking around for an opportu
nity to reclaim the state, the
Messenger has believed that the
only safe, sure way, was by all good
citizens, really patriotic and favorable
to honest, good, equal, economical
government, getting together in sup
port of a common ticket, and thus re
deem North Carolina and restore
order and confidence and hope. To
this end, the Messenger said not long
ago that a white man's party was
necessary. We have seen no cause
to change the view taken. The dem
ocrats voted in 1S96, about 140,
000. They must have some 30,000
votes additional perhaps to make
sure of the state in 1S9S. Where
are they to come from ? We do not
know ot but two sources upon
which to draw.
1. The stay -aways. There are
50,000 voters in North Carolina who
do not vote.
2. The men who seceded from
the party, numbering some 40,000
These two sources mu.-t be strong
ly drawn upon i! the democrats shall
carry the state. We do not believe
that the democratic parly should
cease to be strictly demosratic. That
would mean division, disintegration,
destruction. It cannot afford
to alter its principles to catch voters
ol any kind. In doing that it would
repel and lose more votes than it
would gain. It cannot a fiord to low
er its crest or dally with revolution
ary demagogues or wild cat theories
It must open w ide its doors and be
hospitable to all comers who are will
ing to co-operate and help save the
good old state in 189s. :;:
The democratic Daily has 140,000
150,000 members in the state.
It must not in its conciliation lose
sight of its integrity, its princi
ples, its loundations. It must not
surrender one iota ol basic principle.
It can invite the aid of all men who
really desire to bless North Caroli
na. There is nothing in
past experience or past history, as we
see it, to invite bargaining of any kind.
TC believe a straight dem
ocratic platform is necessary first.
Good leadership, faithful, active
work, without '-fusion" of anv kind
with any pattv, and an appeal to the
best and most honorable men of all
parties to help in the good work in
hand, is all that can be well expected,
and perhaps all that should be de
manded. Co-operation does not
mean betraying principles or dicker
ing for official plunder. Co opera
tion with out price is manly, open,
commend ible. Co operation with
price may do mere harm than good.
It will be a mistake to press fusion if
that means a swap o! offices and a
lowering or surrender of principle.
There are among the thousands
who use Cod Liver ):1 to whom the
taste of the Oil is objectionable. To
these we take pleasure in recommend
ing ".MOKKnr.MN" ( Wine of Cod
Liver Oil ) It is not a synthetical
compound, but is actually extracted
from the finest quality pure Norwe
gian Cod Liver Oil, thereby repre
senting all its virtues, combined with

In a letter, written by Bishop
Cheshire to the Messenger of I lope,
from Glasgow, Bishop Cheshire says:
"nc thing has struck me in almost
;tl ,y intercourse with Knglish pco
,,,., of which 1 believe I have not
spoken in my other two letters. That
is their great interest in America, and
iheir desire for the friendship of ih
United States. They feci that quar
rels with France and Germany and
Russia are more or less unavoidable,

should disturb the friendly relations
between us and them. And this does
not seem to be a selfish feeling, but '
sentiment spiinging of their increas
ing realization of the essential unit) of
the great Knglish speaking people as
represented in the American Republic
and in die British Lmpiic. Many
wise men think that the British public
is coming to realize its position as
only one part of a great world-wide
community as it has not done in the
past. Ifthe war and blood shed be,
as all wise men are agreed, that they
are, contrary f tlu principles of
Christ, then ceitainly two such na
tions as these should learn to settle
their differences without violence, and
when they have learned this they
may be able to teach the rest of the
world the same. But I must not
preach. I am sure your readers do
not wish me to send them sermons
across the Atlantic. But I have been
very much impressed with this fact as
the lcehng of Knglish people toward
America and I think our people
ought to know it "

Spiders :is IVeattier Frophel"
Over in Japan, where the people
are fond of everything in ininature,
the smallest breed in the world has ils
home. They belong to the funiiy
of spaniels, and are black and white
or yellow and white in color, and the
smaller they are the more money
they will bring. A pup of one yerr
weighing five pounds is worth oo.
Ifthe breeder is fortunate enough to
raise a spaniel weighing three pounds
or less he can get almost any price he
wants for it. Sales have been made
to the sum of S500. one of these
queer little dogs can easily lie on a
man's hand or find a comfortable
nook lorsbeping in a hoot-leg. Thev
are very delicate and tender end have
to be watched and cared for like a
baby. If given proper attention they
will some times live to the age often

One of the best of weather proph
ets is the spider. If there happens
to be a web in the secluded corner of
the porch watch it carefully for a few
days or weeks and the spider will un
failingly predict the coming of
When a high wind or heavy rain
threatens the spider may be seen tak
ing in sail that is, shortening the
rope fiiiaments that sustain the web
structure. If the storm is to be un
usually severe or ol long duration the
ropes are strengthened as well shor
tened, the better to resist the onset of
the elements. Not until pleasant
weather is again close at hand will
the ropes be lengthened as before.
On t lie contrary, we see the spider
running out the slender fiiiaments, it
is certain that calm, fine weather has
set in, whose duration may be meas
ured by their elongation.
Kvcry twenty-four hours the
spider makes some alteration in its
web to suit the weather. If these
changes ate made tow. ud evening,
just before sunset, a fine, clear night
may be safely counted rpon. When
the spider s:ts quiet and dull in the
middle of the web, rai.i is not far (1.

had occasion to notice this when call

If you wish to make a bit of val
uable fertilizer and. at the same time,
help to keep the premises tidy, take
a barrel, place a lave r of unbleached
wood ashes at the bottom, and drop
in the be e f and hog bone's as they are
collecting, covering each layer with
ashes, until the barrel is nearly full.
Then fill up wi'h ashes and keep the
contents of the barrel wet. Do not
bleach, the bones nor allow the mass
to fretz . When the bones are dis
solved you have a good fertilrzer.
