Early pears require greater care
than apples. Pick them as soon a;
the seeds show them to be ma',nre be

Tomato vines should be kept tied

son of the year.
Keep the sweet potato plants clear
fof weeds and move the vines to pre
vent them from striking roots at the
joints. Squashes, on the other hand,
may take root as much as they will.
Onions are known to be ready to
Jiarvest by a majority of the tops
sending and faljing . over. Pull and
leave b'e bulbs upon the ground for a
few days to cure, after which gather
and store in a cool, airy place.
The root crops, mangels and beets,
and field cabbages, need frequent cul
tivation during this: month, and until
the leaves cover'' the ground. If weeds
are allowed to grow, and the soil is
left unstirred, the crop will be small.
With this month begins the fall
work, and the more promptly it is en
tered upon the better. The stubbles
are now idle, and they can beplowfj
at once for the fall sowing, thus pre
venting a growth of weeds from ripen
ing their seeds.
During the dry weather of this
month drains can be dug withi greater
comfort and less expense than when
the soil is full of water. The value of
a drain depends upon the thorough
ness with which the work is done.
It should be a permanent improve

ed last spring, often suffer severely
from the dry weather of the summer,
and it is well to apply a mulch of
straw, grass, chips, etc. Whatever
will cover the surface and prevent
evaporation will answer as a mulch.
Potatoes should be harvested so
soon as they are ripe, otherwise the
Itubers.may start into a new growth.

! If this "disease," which is a fungus
growth, makes its appearance, the
vines should all be burned so soon as
the potatoes are dug, as. the pores are
thus destroyed in vast quantities.
Where other work will permit, it is
best to plow the . land for fall-sowing
soon after the haying and harvesting
is over. This avoids the drouth
dried soil that is frequently found
later in the season, besides turning
under the weeds before they have time
to ripen their seeds. Thorough use
of the cultivator will prepare the
early-plowed land for seed when
sowing time comes.

THE DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST, THURSDAY AUGUST 18, 1881. '
Preamble The Democrat of Ohio,
proud of their citizenship in this great
State, for the purpose of maintaining the
prosperity of the common wealth and to
promote the welfare and hapnineaa of
too whole people, submit the following
declaration of principles, upon which
they ask the suffrages of the people.
The equality of all citizens before the
law, equal taxation, impartial legislation,
and a free and pure ballot as the corner
stone of free institutions.
Opposition to monopolies and subsidies
of all kind.
The strictest economy' in National,
State and local administrations.that labor
may be likely burdened.
The maintenance and advancement of
the Common School system.
Resolved. That the abuses of the pres
ent contract system in our State Prison
by which the products of criminal labor
are brought into competition with the
products of honeet labor, to the great in
jury of the latter, is unwise and vicious,
and should be corrected.
Resolved, That the course of the last
Republican Legislature deserves the con
demnation of the people for its incompe
tency, hypocrasy, its unnecessary and
heavy increase in the burdens of taxa
tion, and for the passage of numerous
pernicious and unconstitutional acts, and
for its reorganization of the State solely
for the purpose and as a medium for the
distribution of spoils.
Resolved, That as the humanities are
non-partisan, and as the treatment of
criminals should be non-political, the
management of the charitable and puni
tive institutions of the State should be
free from partisau changes or appoint
ments. Resolved, that we are in favor of a civil
service reform, whereby offices shall be
held to the public trusts to be adminis
tered for the public good, not spoils to be
enjoyed as the reward of partisan zeal or
Resolved. That the Democrats of Ohio.
in this year as in all years, are in favor of
11.. 1 i i? . .
wie largest, muiviuuai uoeriy consistent
with the public order, and are opposed to
legislation merely sumptuary.
Resolved, That the recent discovery of
enormous peculations in high Federal-
places, ana the Republican attempt to
purchase votes by open corruption, should
convince the country that the Republi
can organization is not worthy of public
Resolved, That the power delegated to
the General Government "to regulate
commerce among the States," as well as
the power reserved to the States to regu
late commerce within their own borders,
should both be exercised to prevent un
just discriminations, and unreasonable
charges by our railroads.
A tariff for revenue, levied and adjust
ed in its details with a view to equity in
the public burdens and the encourage
ment of productive industries without
creating monopolies; and we favor the
appointment of a Commissioner to sug
gest methods of revision which shall ac
complish this result. .
The committee also recommended the
adoption of the following, though not in
cluding it in the platform:
Resolved, That we deeply deplore the
recent attempt upon the life of the Presi
dent of the United States by an assassin
and denounce assassination in a Republic
as the highest and most revolting of
crimes, and we extend to the President
and his family our deepest sympathies,
and our earnest -hopes that a speedy re
covery may be vouchsafed him.
