ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC TLATFORM.
The following is the platform adopted:
Patriotic duty and interest demand peace
and reconciliation through all the luu.l.
We pledge ourselves to the following prin-
First No tariff for protection.
Second No third term.
Third A substantial reform ot the civil
service so that federal officers shall he the

stitutional functions of states.
Fifth A constitutional currency of gold
and silver, and of paper convertible into
Sixth No more land grants to monopo
lies. Seventh The will of the people must be
supreme and majorities must rule under the
constitutional methods. No more such

Eighth That laws shall be enacted to
protect laborers in tho more prompt and
certain collection of their wages.
Hari'Kh's Magazine for July, apart from
its splendid pictoriul attractions, is an ex
ceedingly popular number. One of its
txongest features is the beginning of u new
crial novel, by Hcury James, Jr., entitled
'Washington' Square." This story is en
tirely American; and, while it m all thoKo
characteristic charms by which this author
has won his way to tbe popular heart, it
hows signs of greater strength than any of
Ms previous novels.
The number opens with a brief hut ex
cellent article on the lute Willium M. Hunt,
by Miss Mariu It. Oakey, with a masterly
portrait of the artist, and reproductions of
tbree ot his characteristic paintings.
It is seldom that descriptive articles have
the depth and muauing which make Re
becca Hardinjr Davis' "By-Paths in the
Mountains"--the second paper in this
number so interestinfr. This is the first
of three papers to be given under this title;

Tbe number contains two illustrated
poems "Prince Yotisuf and tho Alcaydo,"
by C. r. Cranch, with a drawing by Fred
ericks. The conclusion ot 'Mary Anerly,'' is
promised in the August number; "White
Winers" is continued, and Mr. K. W. Lati
mer contributes a bright short story, en
titled, "Close Quarters."
HONOR TO THE WORKIXGME..
From Win. E. CUaunlng.
The day laborer who earns, with horny
hand and the sweat of his brow, coarse
food for a wife and children, whom lie
loves, is raised, by his generous motive, to
true dignity; ana, though wanting the re
finements of life is a nobler being than
those who think themselves absolved by
wealth from serving others. It is worthy of
note that the men and women who think
most meanlv of others, arc thoe who ren
der back to society, for the good things
they enjoy, the smallest return of personal
effort. The world's true bent fhctors, and
therefore its true noblemen, are those who
serve it humbly and earnestly to the best of
the ability God has given them. All
otbeis are but counterfeits and pretenders.
STARKEL AT HOME.
The Democrats of eur county should fed
complimented by the nomination cf our
fellow-ciriMn, Dr. Louis C. Starke!, for
state auditor. Such recognition, under
such favorable circumstances, should stim
ulate our party friends to do their utmost
towards the "success cf our entire s;ate
ticket. There can be no question cf Dr.
Starkel's eminent fitness for the oc. and
it ought to be our pride, as it is cur duty,
to give a rousing majority for the whole
ticket. There must be to scratching, as
every name on the ticket is worthy in the

We can not but eipress the opinion that
the nomination cf Mr. Arthur, cf New
York, was a mistake. It is neither in har

the ticket. There is the consolation, how
ever, that the oSce is one of total icsigr-ii-

AN IDYL OF NEW MEXICO.
Our picnic was in the month of May, and
we started from Santa Fe in the early
morning. On three sides the drowsy old
town is guarded by mountains royal with
purple and glittering with gold. Thirty
miles away one snowy peak seemed an
airy tent let down out of heaven, anil across
it the breeze blows as freshly as airs serosa
Eden when "the evening and the porting
were the rst dav."'
The read wound beside the little river
Santa Fe, whose waters go softly, after
rippling down in icy cascades frm a lake
pure as Tahoe, formed by melting scows
from the mountain top. Along
its margin the red wiJiow tosses i;s
branches highly as a lady's plume, and
back in the hill country the pine-trees sigh
tv each other, their never ceasing song.
Over the rocks clambering goits look down
and shake their beards at the traveler, and
the tinkle of a bell falls pleasantly on the
ear as Mexican boys drive their Corks to
the river; and where the sheep are drink
ing an Indian woman carrying a black jir
on her head, erect and stately, comes to
wash her poor rags in the stream.
It is all like the old Pilble pictures. The
somber landscape though sadly lacking
color, is serene and pastoral, so filled with
the beauty of peace and restful silence, we
thought of tho ancient pilgrims journeying
in the shining white light of the Delectable
Mountains, and their talk with loving shep
herds by the wayside. No fear ot rain to
spoil our pleasure; there will not be one
drop, nor is there even dew. Yesterday
we breathed balm and incense, to-morrow
wo know will be just like to-day. The
south wind has ''quitted the earth," and the
blue overhead is without spot of cloud, va
pory mist or fog.
Our party was quite large. In advance
a well-mounted lieutenant, in the glory of
his first shoulder straps, rode close to the
bridle rein ot a younc girl, whose
flying veil gave short glimpses of a
beautiful face lighted with eyes of radiunt
hazel and the brightest smiles. Tbey were
a pair of lovers, loved by us at first sight. In
an ambulance cume a stout lady with color
rather high thun delicate, whose unhappy
bonuet would not stick to her head, but
kept slipping down her back. Reside her
sat a weak woman from Illinois, born tired
and tumbled to find time to rest since that
wearisome date, having barely lite enough
to be proud of her ten-year-old Rosa, as
though children were the rarest things in
the world. On a little burro, or donkey,
was a school teacher without escort, but
looked after by a dry old bachelor, who
had one romance in his life and still wore
the miniature of a face, dearly loved and
early lost, which has been only dust thirty
years. For the old love's sake he treated
all women with delicate reserve, seeing in
them kinship to the lost ideal they in some
sort represent. A dream unbroken, for
where death sets his seal the imprint is
eternal and endureth lorcver. Then there
rode alone a blonde and pensive artist, tho
author of many rejected manuscripts, who
carried sketching paper and a neat box of
pencils. He wore his h'air long and boots
small, smoked cigarettes incessantly,
and eyed the gay lieutenant in
bitterness of soul. Several light car
riages whirled past us; and Rrown, the
photographer, dashed by on his owu buck
board drawn by gallant grey mules. I had
only time to notice thu stranger beside hun

ring ot unusual size nnd brilliance, which
blazed in the sunlight hs ho courteously
lifted his hat. Among tho Inst to appear
was an alumnus from Colorado college,
who had electrified tho whole board of
trustees witU his graduating speech enti
tled, "The Centennial State a Nation's
Benediction." This callow youth in pin
feathery mouRtachu had made the eastern
tour, had a nodding acquaintance with the
crowned heads of Boston, and in conscious
snperiority overshadowed bis companion
the Baptist minister, one of tho meekest
spirits that ever starved its way to heaven
Tho army ambulance moved slowly
through the sandy red soil, but wo did not
care; the mountains how grand they are
were a perpetual delight. Tho fineness
of the atmosphere gave exquisite tints to
the near toothills and tbe vast horizon

moss-like grass. They never felt
dew or rain, yet they did not appear
stunted or starved, but looked up brightly
in the sterile sand as from a garden bed.
Now and then a Pueblo Indian strode
silently across our way, and a Mexican in
picturesque striped blanket saluted us in
Spanish fashion with a "Buenos dias
scnoras," as he drove his cruelly loaded
donkey toward the city. Lazy Mexicans
squatted in rows sunned themselves against
the low walls of their bouses; and on
chimney a rlock of pigeons tamely perched,
and watched the movements of a mower
cutting the grass which grew scantily on
the f.at mud roof of bis miserable hut.
When we reached the chosen ground
fire was alreadv kindled from the resinous
bouchs of the pinon. and lovers were strav
icg off in shady places to find out what
words the daisies are saying to youth and
Brown, the photographer, introduced
