Did you ever consider the rel
ative inherent strength if the
Democratic and Republican pee
ties, as shown by the record?
Let us look at it. From 1868 to
1900, the year of Mr. Bryan's
last unsuccessful race, both in
cluded, the total number of pres
identiaLvotes cast foots up thus:
Republican maj... 1,734,664
We recall at once that in the
early years of this period, in
1868, 1872 and 1876, the recon
struction business took many
more votes than this majority
from the Democracy, and put
them in the Republican column.
We recall, also, that from 1868
to 1900 the aggregate negro vote
cast in the northern and border
states for the Republican party
has probably been from 3,000,000
to 8,500,000. But we pass these
matters by and take the vote as
counted. For a generation the
Republican party has been in
possession Qf the public patron
age, the Democratic victories of
1884 and 1892 not affording time
to prune down this mighty treb
to its proper proportions; and
yet, despite its practically un
broken possession of the federal
government and its exercise of
a patronage so vast as never to
have been known before in the
history of the world, the aggre
gate vote of that prolonged pe
riod shows that it has just man
aged to keep its head above the
water and that is all.
Eliminate the element of cash,
and it would have sunk out of
sight long ago. Take money
from It now, and it would cease
wy, ithout pat
'0 WI ou vitory-i the.
Democratic party has exhibited
a vitality and displayed a power
which must ap. ear inexplicable
and phenomenal to other lands,
but the reason whereof is well
known in this country and to
none better than to the Republi
can party itself. The Democracy
is the natural plarty of the Amer
ican. They hereditarily incline
that way. Bar eras of fanaticism
and greed, and the vote gravi
tates in that direction. Maine
was once a staunch Democratic
Mtate, but is now Republican be
cause to those people up there
the war is still going on. Penn
* sylvania was once reliably Dem
ocratic, also, but is now Repub
lican by reason of the tariff.
Being an artificial party, the
Republican 'party is necessarily
dependent for its existence on
elixirs, chiefly the elixir of gold.
* Being a natural party, the De
mnocracy lives without adventi
tious aid. There are no seeds of
menu, an a ir n eld to every
man and no favors.--[Augusta

A Remedy for Chigger Bites.
This is the time of year for
the happy and festive chigger.
In his last bulletin Dr. S. J.
Cru bine, secretary of the state
boar of health of Kansas, has
an article telling people how to
prevent the ravages of chiggers
and how to remedy the bites
after they are made. It Is a
simple remedy, too, and infor
mation given out by Dr. Crum
bine is always worth while. He
"Most of the ordinary chigger
remedies have been personally
tried without obtaining more
than temporary relief at the best,
so that repeated applications
were necessary to fully subdue
an irritation. A chemical which,
in my opinion, possesses more
real merit than any of those
commonly used is hyposulphite
of soda. This is a fixing agent
used by photographers. It can
be purchased at most drug stores,
and is no; expensive. - Dissolve
this in water, making a nearly
saturated solution, and bathe
the spots where chiggers have
burrowed. The pests are killed
when the solution reaches them
and the irritation ceases, though
sometimes two or more applica
tions ngay be required for obsti
nate or deep-set cases. No
harmful nor disagreeable effect
has attended the liberal use of a
strong solution of this comn
pound, expept a slight smarting

"In order to ward off chiggers
the arms and feet and other
parts of the body likely to be ex
posed should be0 bathed in the

Value of Tears.

are most useful in cases of great
