Wo believe the majority of citizens are earnestly und conscienti? ously frying to vote for th? g^'od of ? candidates Impartially. But it is timely to mention tho e?btlo dancers thta may creep in to vitiate honest intentions. Oh? oi these is the feeling that the selection will come out all right now whether everybody votes' or hot. In? dividuals may feel that their ballots will have no cffecft on the reS?lt. Tills is not true. It Is the solemn duty of every voter to cast his bal? lot In this election. Ho owes It to himself and to his community, t.'nless each man Is aroused to the necessity of helping In making a wise choice, the danger of a poor choice Is In? finitely Increased. The responsibility of the single reter Is paramount. Any neglect will be costly. Every quali? fied voter of Richmond must voice his beliefs on Tuesday. Another ?langer Is that of scatter? ing the whole number of votes among the multiplicity of candidates. Tin vote must he cohtrc-d on the men who are most fitted for the rlac-.s. The practical politicians are awake to this fact. They are making slates and en? deavoring to Join fdrci s 1:. f vor of their candidates. The Citizens' Asso? ciation was formed to combat this possibility, if the good citizens vote In hap-hazarrd fashion, however hon? estly they may choose, their efforts ?will be waned If their votes are di? vided. Akin to this la the Idea that a man can afford to waste Iiis ballot on a friend for personal reasons, al? though he ma i know the man will not be chosen.

Tho movement bus only been hnstenod and made tho more Immediately necessary by the circum? stances of a number of Trench prison? ers being eonrtned there, the new Sul? tan proclamation nnd the appearance or El Hiba on the scene. Itut these factors comhlno to render tho task far more difficult, and to require that It be undertaken on a far greater scale than as : t first contemplated. They have forced tho crisis, and. In BO doing, have placed Prance In a position where wisdom dictates that she should not only bo generous to Spain, but. if pos? sible, form an alllanoe. offensive nml efens vo. with tho latter for the main? tenance of Frnnco-Spnnish domlnancoi Itl Morocco within the confines of theirj si pdrato allotments.

A visit such, this Impresses upon the ordinary man tho slso and Importance of his country nnd freshens in his mind the patriotic sentiment;; that long peace makes him forget. It stimulates tho sepse of national solidarity nn.i or? ganic relationship with all sections: that join together In providing ample means bf upholding a common cause and n common honor.

Burbank raises millions of plants, and for suc? cessive generations culls out thi>se that j have accidentally varied lu the dlree < tlon In which ho Is aiming to produce a > now species. President Jordan In Ilia i stalcntont hits the nail squarely on the head. He says: "I used the phrase 'Burbunkillg the race' to show that although systema? tic, scientific selection of mates could be made to produce great physical Strength, beauty, endurance and even mental power, those very persons who might bo thus effectively muled, would never submit to st ito dictation, if they, would, they must In time eliminate the; most vital elements' In human evolu? tion?love and initiative. Love Is the best basis for marriage, und love Is it real i ml noble thimr In spite Of tho baseness of its many Imitations." This gives the central argument against the eugenic theory. Burbank Is omnipotent as lar as his plants are concerned, ami can supcrvlso the !n-j crease of several generations. Rut What social authority can enforce eu? gchlCal mating, and bow will the pro-; cess bo extended over hundreds of years?
