Dr. Jones of I oplar lilutt made a
speech fa voring I'oplar Bluff for the
place for the convention. He said that
1 'oplar Uluff was nearer the center of
the district, had better railroad facil-
ities. better hotels, more saloons and
better liquor than any other town inlt(, p.t dear, sharp outlines of the
the district. He was followed by Sen -
ator Walker who was present to pre
sent the claims of Dexter. The Sena
tor gave the meeting a glowing pic
ture of the little city in Stoddard
county. He said Dexter was located
in the hot lied of Democracy, that if
the convention was held at Dexter live
thousand Stoddard county Demociats
would be on hand to yell for the nom
inee of the convention.
Maj. J. B. Dennis spoke for the
Cape, and his remarks were plain and
pointed. He told the Committee that
'ape (iirardeau had never had a
Democratic Congressional Co n vent ion.
that the Democrats of Cajie t iirar
deau county were surrounded by the
enemy the I republicans--and the
iiolding of the Democratic convention
in this city would give them courage
lo do better work in the coming cam
paign. He said that many of the dele
gates who would :ie elected to attend
the convention had children attend
ing the Southeast Xormal School and
that they would lie glad of the oppor
tunity to visit this ei'y and see the
grand oldeducational institution where
their children were heing educated.
He pointed out the many advantages
Cat; ( Iirardeau had over i'oplar IllutV
and Dexter, and he told the ( 'onnnittce
that iie was authorized by the St.
Louis. Cape Iirardeau iV. Fort Smith
ilaiiroad authorities to slat.; to the
( oumiiltee that tin-fare over that road
would ie pur down to one doilar for

!!. Davis, on behalf of the 1 re
publicans, assuivd the Committee that
the I republicans would give the deli -
eates and their friends a hearty wci-i
come and wo'.i.ii do all ;n their pnwer j

( HrlllZ i'aralysis by II ypilotlsm.
At the annual meeting in Hoston of
tin- Massachusetts Homo -pathie So
ciety. Dr. Jan. . - K. Cocke presented a
case of absorbing interest, and one
claimed to i .ive "no parallel in med
ical history. ' He described the cur
ing of a i -a st of spinal paralysis by
hypnotism, ihe patient is a young
man who was paralyzed after an at
tack of the grip four years ago. He
was attended by some of the liest phy
sicians in New F.ugland. and has
lit.-en treated in the Hoston hospitals,
but without effect. Last February he
became a patient of Dr Cocke, who,
after trying all the known remedies,
hit uiiou hypnotism as a last resort.
Much to ids surprise, he said, it
proved efficacious, ami thw patient has
been steadily improving, until now he
is able to walk without assistance,
and even to jump, although there is
still some stiffness about his move
ments. Tiie patient was present yes
terday, and was hypnotized in the
presence of the doctors, and the effect
of this method of treatment was prac
tically demonstrated. The young
m tn has. it is said, gained in weight
eight pounds since February. Hoston

Tillman's "Impending Crisis."
Senator Tiilman appears to think
his "imending crisis" will bring as
important consequences as did that
which Hinton R. R. Helper heralded
nearly forty years ago. The gulf be
tween rich and poor, he believes, is
broader now than it ever was before,
and is rapidly growing broader: cor
porations have a death grip on the
country: public officers are corrupt:
the press is blind and venal. "Some
thing is going to happen," he says.
(ortainly "something ought to
'happen," and happen right off, if
thing's are as bad as Tillman tells.
Yet here is where Tillman disappoints
expectation. He says he does not
predict war. but "tiie conditions are
favorable for some kind of. a revolu
tion in the next five years." The
"crisis." then, is not going to lie as
cataclysmic as that which Helper pi-e-dicted.
Therefore the dramatic unities
are to be violated, and the country
v.ili not feel much concern about it.
it is t, ie political crisis which Till
man also foretells, and not his soeial
crisis that the jieople will have an in
terest in. If the Chicago Conven
tion favors tiie gold standard," he
saitl to a Denver audience, "watch
what I will do." This is a niemure
oii revolt, a threat of secession. As
anything' short of an out and out dec
laration for free coinage at l'i to 1 by
tin- Fniled States immediately and
independently would, in Tillman's
view, lie an indorsement of the gold
standard, anil as the National De
mocracy is hardly mad enough, even
iu this year of its desjieralioii and
folly, to make any uch declaration as
this, a Democratic split like that of
thirty-six years ago is announced.
"We say go your way and we will go
ours." said Ulenn. the spokesman of
the Mississippi delegation to the
Northern delegates, when the South
ern .mem tiers were leaving1 the fateful
Democratic National Convention at
Charleston in 1 '. "But the South
leaves not like Hagi-r driven into the
wilderness friendless and alone for
in sixty days you will find a united
South standing shoulder to shoulder."
A fulmination as picturesque and
portentous as this may be expected
from Tillman when he and the jrOBt of
the Jti to 1 men withdraw front the
Chicago Convention in July. That is
to say. it will not lie entirely safe to
predict that none of the free coiners
will withdraw. "The seceders intend
ed from the beginning to rule or
ruin." wrote Alexander II. Stephens
shortly after the Charleston Conven
tion, referring to tiie Southern dele
gates who left that body: "and when
they find they cannot ride, they will
then ruin. They have about enough
power for this purpose: not much
more." It is the misfortune of the
Democratic party, with all its wealth
of able leaders of great traditions, to
lie sometimes placed at the mercy of
gangs of political brigands in crises
when statesman should be in control,
and when sense is ;mieratively de
manded. The men like Stephens,
Douglas ar.d I 'ugh out numbered the
Yancey s. Soules and Toombse's forty
years ago. as the Clevelands. Carlisle
and Palmers outnumber the Tillmans.
Al'igelds and IJarrisses to-day, yet
the conspirator minority, as Steph
ens said, sometimes have enough
power to ruin. . However, the alterna
tives for the Democracy in IS'.itl are
these: Resistance 'to the wreckers,
with ia bolt and overwhelming defeat.

ENGLISH GRASSY ROADSIDES.
They Add Immensely tq the Iteauty
of the Country.
The beauty and the vegetation of
the road margin, though varrying
with locality and soil, conforms in
each to a certain order. By the great
high roads in the agricultural coun
ties this roughly corresponds to the
lawn, flower and background of
shrubs of the cultivated garden. The
finest turf that grows, except that
which has for 800 years been corpped
by the cattle of the New Forest,
fringes the highway. It owes its
quality, first, to the passing travelers'
feet, which have pressed it for cen
turies without wearing it away.
and. seondly, to the constant powder
ing with road dust, the finest an
most nourishing of grass fertilize!
The herbage consists mainly of thei-
tiniest clovers and theliestlawn gTaw-.
. . ... Tj
es. iietween the turl ana tne iie-ugo
lies the roadside flower gardsn, to
which the fence forms a background
of shrubliery. On the level margin
of The Hat-bordered roads this is also
a pi-eserve of wild herbacec $ plants.
Among the dwarf bushe; f bram
ble, rest harrow and doy : J&i or on
the rougher and less-tro-' J;n margin,
where these do not thftsh, grows
the legion of roadside lUwers. It -is
the ground sacred to fiif wild snap
dragon, the musk thistle crane's bill
and specuweii. eye bfl'ut and white
nettle, pink convolvulus and wild "
carrot, mallow, and the bink clover.
Some plants seem to love the dust
and sun nearest to the roadway.
Aar-m's rod. pink rettles, gray scab
ious, and the- bright blue viper s bu
gloss and in.-niwort thrive with "a
coating of dus! ashed off by pass
ing showers. jfi heavy soil the way
side needs a (ii'eh to drain the road
therefore, meadow sweet, loosestrife,
vetch, and "cherry-pie," and ail tlw
difeh plants flourish there. When
tii- road is bordered oy :i running
stream the lloral wealth of this way
side gardtn is doubled or trebled.
The- refraction of the sun frvm the
road the confinement of the fences, the
wat. dust and light, here force the
roadside vegetation to the utmost.
Their grows the largest marsh mari
golds, the longest hart's tongues, the
tallest teazles, and the greenest bur
docks. Buterfiies and birds of certain
secies always prefer the roadside to
any other haunt: The sociable yel-.
lowhammers and whitethroats seldom
leave the road hedges, and partridges
have a special liking for this danger
ous nesting place.
Where the road is cut deep and the
margins slope upwards, the charac
ter of the flower border changes.
Loosely growing grasses take the
place of the compact turf, and these
are set in spring with beds of white
and purple violets, Star of Bethlehem,
white nettle, steedwell and celandine,
and later with masses of mallows and
ragged robin. The ants- and bumble
bees are the characteristic insects of
these warm borders the former piling
their hills among the loose grasses,
and the latter burrowing in the warm
slopes. There the old country-women,
active and industrious to the last,
eor.ie to gather the medicinal plants,
which seem to grow no where else ex- .
cept by the roadsides. No one but
these old dames knows the plants by
sight, though they all fetch their '
price when sent up in bundles to the
dealers in Convent Garden. London
