"Our trouble used to be to pernilnde

the imltatlon by them of Domocmttd

but the trust magnates are stlll at

I'-ice Future With Hope.
"The Democrats face the future -wlth
hope, aud thelr hope rests on a flrm
foundatlon. Democratic politles have
grown in popularity as tho'voters havo
become better aceiuainted with thc ovlls
to bo remedled. The Democrats bave
been looklng at public questions from
the standpoint of all the people, whlle
Republlcan leaders have been looklng
at them from a standpoint uf a few.
As the strength of a party must in the
long run be measured by the strength
of Its prlnclples, Democrats have rea?
son to belleve that thelr jjrospects of
success nave been greatly increased by
the wldespread acceptances of Demo?
cratlc remedies.
"Another reason for hope is to bo
found ln tho fact that the Democratlc
party is united, while th0 Republican
party is divided, and the reunion of
tlie Democratic party la due to the
same causea that havo brought divisloa
into the Republlcan ranks.
"Tho country has moved forward to?
ward positive and aggresslve resistance
to the encroachments of predatory
wealth, and thls growth has brought
tho rear ranks of the Democratlc party
up to the flrlng line, whlle lt has scp
arated the Republican reformers from
tho Republlcan stand-patters. The llght
for supremacy ln the Republican party
ls a bitter one, and whlchever sldo
wtns the other sldo will be disgruntlc-d.
As the Republlcans used ono fuctton of
the Democratlc party to defeat us ln
1890, wc shall return the compllment
thls year and use one part of the Re?
publican party to defeat the other, for
it Is so hopelessly divided that lt can?
not be trusted to do anything at pres?
"The third cause for hopo l3 to be
foun.l in the moral awakenlug. Never
wlthln a generatlon has thero been
such a stlrrlng of consclence, and the
sense of Justlco lnherent In the people
has been made Bensitlve to the Demo?

now it will enjoy tho gratltude and the

"In my youngor days I wns !n chnrg*.

of weather.. und for years had never
spnred myself from work or oxposure.
As a result of thls und stomach trou?

tho sprlng of 1903, and fell an easy
viotlin to an attack of rheumntlsm. I
hud tho servlces of two doctors ln De?

well. By thls tlme I was helpless, my
entire body Roemcd to be paralyzed,
nnd l couldn't movo my arms or logs.
"The doctors advlsod mo to go to my

cared for during tho remainlng few

met ino and I went homo, where I had
a nurse and employed our famlly phy?

of Detrolt that I could not llve.
"As I lay ln bed I thought there

deslro to qult life at my age, and de?
elded to try Dr. Wllllams' Pink Pills,
whlch I had heard some relatlves sny

boxes nnd commenced to take them

evory partlcular. For two weeks It
wns a life nnd doath struggle, but Dr.
tVllllams' Pink Pills flnally won, for
I began to havo some feellng ln my
feet. After using tho pills steadlly for
slx weeks I could walk across tho
room, and slx wocks lator was dolng
light work. My frlends and doctora
were dumbfoundod at my recovery.
That was nearly four years ago, and
