IIenninq, Tbnn., July 3. -It has
been raining hers for several days, so
much that farmers are bad y be
hind with their woik, and it will take
several days of nice weather to put
crops in good condition. However,
today is a beautiful, bright July morn
ing, and everybody seems to be busy
and all nature' to be enjoying the beau
tiful snnlight.as it comes in transparent
waves noieelensly down from above.
Bo mild does it shine this morning
that it seems like the first approach tf
spring. Our fields are now laden with
shocks of golden grain. Ere long tha
hum of the thrashing machines will
be heard in our midst, and the crop
will be harvested and stowed away for
future use. The corn crop in some
sections of the county has been
worked too wet. Oats are fine ; but a
small portion of the clover crop hti
been saved, owing to the wet weather.
Notwithstinding the amount of rain
we have had, candidates have circu
lated freely, and we are fearful that a
host of them who are ceeking office
have lost a great deal of time that
could have been better employed.

Ha asked the doctor why men com-
mit'ed suicide, and what way was the
easiest and quickest. Dr. Knox re-
n ipil that the moment a man de'or-

fiom sanity into lunacy. He paid very
little attention to what the young man
had 1o Hy at the time, however,
though every word of the conversa
tion has since been strongly impressed

plained of being a trifle sick in the
forenoon and Dr. W. B. Winston gave
him a prescription, the

being thoee of a chill. H d'd not
compound the prescription, ajs it was
afterward found on the counter. A
little after 1 o'clock he left the d ug
afore and went into the stoieroom in

(imv. whom he naastd. noticed noth
ing peculiar is his manner, but shortly
after heweutl nto the storeroom heard
a noise whi:h sounded like the explo

heard the ootind and hastened to the

gushing from a wound in his right

At Its Session TIiIh Afternoon Tho
lloiirs for Prl:narie Date
of Couvetitlou.
The ruet-tinar of the Demccratin
Executive Committee, which Is called
fori this afternoon at 3 o'clock will
be an imp Jitunt one, its object being
to consider the advisability of chang
ing tne date ol the convention, tome
of the members express a desire to
ueieriotne wienei ot tne canuiaats
in tho matter. While the majority of
the' candidates are believed to be in
favor of advancing the date, it la
ifilcult to understand what right
they have to dVtate and an
adiuitsion that theirKwlBhee are to
govern would be a confusion that the
campaign is to be managed, not in the
interest ot tne pany as a-wnoie, out
for the bonetit of the ollin seek
ers. The supposition is thu tha
Democratic Kxecutive Committee ia to
manage the campaign in the inter
of the Democracy, and not in the in
terest of a few individuals in its
ranks. If that wero not the case, and
the committee is to become the mere
mouthpiece of tho candidates, wny
nave it conitiuueu at an, ui u ""i.

and form a committee and run the

I'llANUINU TUB HOURS.
It is ucnerally conceded that the
Democrats will win by a large major
ity if a good ticket Is chosen,
and it naturally follows that
tho result of the primaries will
be an indication of the result of the
convention. Then, if representative
men are cho;en as delegates to the
convention, a ticket which shall rep
resent the Doet elements 01 society
will bo chosen by the convention.
And arguing in that way it goes with
out saying that tha real fight will be
made at the piimailes. II this Is true,
and it is generally admitted to be, the
cimmitteo will use every means in iU
power to bring ; out good men
at the primary election. In no way
can this end be better reached than
by fixing the houra for holding the
primaries to that it will be perfectly
convenient for nvorybody to attend
them. The time fixed, (i to 8 o'clock,
is not believed to be aullicient, better
judgment suf sting at least an hour
longer, and making the hours say from
6 to 8 o'clock,
si'Aca nrrwiKN primariis and ion-
VINTION.
The question is frequently asked by
the nninitiaieil why so much time
shou'd elapse between tho selection of
delegates and the holding of the Con
vention, A machino mun who was
asked that question yesterday didn't
seem to know much about It, scratched
bis head a minute and replied that he
supposed it was in order to give tho
cnndldntes time to gat around among
the boys and talk over things,
A man who is not on the
inside gives it rh hit opinion that a
much better result could be expected
of a convenjiju 0 (ioiogiuel fresh from
theiWinlo, full of the purpose for
which they nail Deen cuoseu aim ii o
from influences which might be
brought to bear upon them if sti Melon
timo wiw given for "the boys to get
around, you know." If the committee
today cannot find a better reason than
that given by the machine man It is
likely they will tlx tho datonf holding
the convention for the next day or the
dBy after the primaries, which would
put the date 01 the convention ahont
the l llh or 1Mb.
TIME FOR HARMONY.
Those who urge the committee to
advance tho dale of the convention
give an excellent reason for it. It is
human nature, they say, to feel de
feat ; tbo greater the Btruggie ana 1110
greater the ansurance nf buccohi. the
more depressing tne eneci 01 lauuru.
Each candlila'e will have a certain
number of warm friendB, who, in the
event of hi defeat, will take
it at 11 rat as peraonal to tneui-
soIvob. As good Democrats and
true, they will in time rally to the
support of the nominees, whoever
they may be, aa oninuaiasiicaiiy as u
they had been successful in their own
particular desires. But it takes time,
the more the better, and if thiee weeks
can be had to smooth out the
wrinkles, instead of two, 83 much the
better. Perfect harmony and an en
thusiastic fight is necessary to defeat
tho ticket which the itauicais nope 10
