Many leadingdemocratsof this section, while repudiating the platform of the Chicago convention, do not by any means do so wholly on account of the free silver plank. It is more on account of the element which controled the con vention, which they deem not at all democratic, but rather popnlistic,and on account of the populistic tone of other parts of the platform. The endorsement of Bryan by the populists in national convention will confirm these democrats in their stand.

ANTIQUITY OF 1 HE MEASLES. teople tm All Time Have Suffered Trr Thla DlMtM, Of Mrarno every one thinks he know! what measles is and yet Tery few really know more about the ailment than the fact that It is a contagious diaoano, char acterized by mms eyes, sore nose, sore throat and un eruption of the skin. The disease is one of tfrcat antiquity, dating as far back as A. V. vwt. At that time, however, it was confounded with smallpox and scarlet fever. By many observers smallpox and measles were always regarded as ouo ana ino umn diAM. differing only in degree. This misinformation was not dispelled until 1670, when Sydenham, an Eng lish physician, declared that they were diatinct diseases. . About tho origin of measles littlo 11 1 . . . . . . 1 - is iouna all over the civilized world. It is not known in uncivilized countries. it has always bt oii claimed that tho di raso was duo to a spociflo poison, but the nature of it jw not known. Quite rwH'uny, nowever, a European bacteri ologist named Czajikowski reported that ne uaa iouna a micro organism in tl blood of a pernou sufferintr from niea les, which ho lielievod to be tho cause of the diseaHO, Measles is unlike some Other contagious diseases, in that it no respecter of persons or Dlaoes. It af fects all sorts aud conditions of people. What better illustration of this is need ed than the present case in the first household of tho land? The diseaso is ono of the most highly contagious ail ments known. It is far more contagious man smallpox, but the poison of mea sles contains much less vitality than that of the latter. The poison of measles exits in tho breath, the blood, the tears tnd in the secretions from tho nose and throat Although the diseaso is usually classed as one of childhood, adults sometimes suffer from it The adult cases are usually the moro severe. In fonts under 6 months are generally con sidered exempt from the diseaso. al though thero are exceptions to tho rule. MeuKles is generally looked upon as necessary evil of childhood and one that deserves but littlo attention. In a sim pie case that may be all well enough but there are usually otiier con tin ecu dea, and some of these should bo guard ed against In almoKt every case the eyes becomo inflamed and call for at tention. There is usually a bronchitis, which, if left uncared for. mav bo fol lowed by pneumonia and fatal termiua tiou. San 1-rancisco Chronicle. PRECEDENCE QUESTION.

The Kane Qaeatloa In Sooth Africa, Hitherto the most interesting features in the history of South Africa have been the relations to one another of the races that originally inhabited or have re cently occupied it, and the most difficult problems which its future presents arise from tho relations of these races. Three races are native, four are European. The cases of contact or conflict between European and aboriginal races, which have been numerous during the last four centuries, include those where the native race, though perhaps numerous, is comparatively weak and unable to assimilate European civilization, or to thrive under European rule, a rule which bos often been harsh, or even to survive in tho presence of a European population occupying its country. Thoso whero Europeans have conquered country already filled by a moro or less civilized population, which is souumer OU9 aud so prolific as to maintain itself in their presence, and thoso in which tho native raco is numerous and strong enough to maintain itself in the face of Europeans, while, on tho other hand, there is plenty of room left for a large European population to press in. This is what has happened in South Africa. The Dutch and tho English settlers do not mix their blood with that of the natives. So far as can be predicted, both Whites and natives will goon increas ing, but not blending. We shall pres cntly see how grave are the problems to which this fact must in the future give riso, James Bryco in Century. Was Adam the Pint Manf About tho middle of the seventeenth century an audacious attempt was made to rob Adam of the honor of having been tho first man. Isaac de la Peyrere, in an odd little volume entitled "The pTe-Adamites," attempted to prove that there were two creations of men the first on the sixth day of the week of creation, when "God created man malo and female. ' The rabbis interpret the above passage of holy writ as meaning that the first race of human beings were creatures in which both sexes were unit ed in tho same individual. According to De la Peyrere, Adam was the result of tho second creation the "male and female" being having been tho progen itor of the Gentiles, Adam the father of tho Jews. A great many people fell in with the views of Do la Peyrere, and lie was tho lion of the hour. His followers were called "Pre-Adamites," and they , in creased in numbers rapidly, until finally the movement became so strong that the founder of the sect was compelled to go to Home and abjure his doctrine at the feet of Popo Alexander VIL St Louis Republic.

The great atone flouring mllla of tho northwestern wheat region have little about them to remind one of the modest structure that clatteringly turn Into flou the farmers' grain In the country districts farther east There are no farmers driving up to the aoor and unloading dusty sack of yellow wheat while they chat with the miller. W hole freight trains Instead puff tneir noisy way under massive archway into the building, and car after car 1 emptied In a twinkling, each one dischnrs Ing Its load through a trapdoor In Its floor Then the cars, having boen almost aa quickly loaded with flour as they were emptied of grain, are pnsbed on through another great stone archway and go forth to carry the product to oaatorn markets. In the Perthton mill there was generally one onlooker as the trains unloaded who took no part In the work. Anule. the lit tie crippled daughter of the janitor, limped up and down the platform, In and out of the mill as well aa her lameness would al low. Brakomen, engineers and shippers all had a pleasant word for her. "The mill sprite," one eDglneer of a poetic turn of mind had called her, and she went by that name, eveu among those who did not know what the phrase meant. About midsummer a new superintend ent, air. Griawold, came to the mill. "Aren't you afraid of being caught In the machinery? he asked one hot even Ing, when he found Annie perched on a wide beam watching the wheat flow down ward like a golden river. "rtor i r always- lived in the mill and go everywhere," ahe answered. "Night and day tooT" "Yes;-It's prettlor at night," she an swered simply, and the superintendent whose heart sometimes swelled with ad miration wnen tne great structure was lighted with electricity, agreed with her, lie stopped a moment to watch the swinging lever which, at a pull from an assistant's hand, puahed back the heavy cover to the deep bin and allowed a carload of new wheat, freth from the prairies, to flow like a torrent Into the receptacle. " 'Twould b death to be under that shower," Mr. Grlswold said half to himself and passod on. A few evenings afterward, when 6he was left alone by her fat her In the janitor's nestlike quarters in the front of the mill Annie's thoughts called up this remark of tho superintendent about the stream of wheat. ' Just then ahe heard a low. rum bllng sound In the distance. Another train of wheat was coming. It would be unloaded in the night. he started for the door to soo It roll past and gilded out along a dark wall toward the tracka. Just before she came to a corner she heard low voices from around the turn Two men were whispering hoarsely. "The last night of the month always brings It, you know," one said. "les, but how can we git to ltf Th watch will be on." "That's all right I've been studying the thing, an the superintendent la here alone tonight. The office men are sick The roar of the train was coming nearer, and the men raised their voices. "lie may show fight an ring In an alarm, said the second speaker. "o danger," was the reply. It came so sharply that It seemed to be hissed In the other's ear. "It won't take more than a minute to settle him. We'll jest watt till th train Is in, an Whir, whlztl came the 'noisy freight The engine, threw out millions of sparks as it tugged up the incline, and all sounds but its roar were drowned. Nothing was distinguishable until the long line of laden cars had disappeared beneath the black arch In the wing of the mill, and then Annie heard again: "Don't get seared now. It'll work all right." ' Then the voloes ceaaod. Presently she peeped anxiously around the corner. Nothing was visible now but the silent, dark walls, with gleams of light coming through the scores of windows She wished her father was there and was still more nervous when she remembered that he would not be back uutll midnight. She thought over the men's words, "the last night of the month." The meaning had not struck her at first. Now It occurred to her that they were talk ing about the hundreds of dollars which were in the superintendent's hands to pay off the employees on the morning of the first of the month. He was alone, at the men had said. She knew that the force was small that night because of Illness. These men were going to rob Mr. Grls wold I She mast go and warn him. But, whatever they meant to do, It would hap pen "when the train was In." And al ready it had come to a standstill on the dump platform I Annie seized her bonnet, to protect ber brown hair from the flying flour, and, not daring to go outside and attempt to climb the long railway trestle In the darkness, turned through a small door Into the depths of the mill and started for the su perintendent's office. - i Although she had often been In the mill at night. It had seldom been in this direc tion, and her progress was somewhat un certain.- '. Pulling back hef dress from con tact with the mighty wheels, stepping over shafts and limping along beams that con nected narrow platforms, she struggled on In the hot and dusty half darkness Once, n her excitement, she lost her way, and then, just as a dull roar told that the first car of wheat had been dumped, she found it again, and in a moment - more was at the door of the superintendent's office Impatiently she pounded en Its panels. There was no respoata Straightening her poor little body fc4ts greatest height, ahe knocked again, and then, with both thin hands, tried the latch. It yielded, and the heavy door swung slowly Inward he glanced quickly around.. Mr. Grlswold was nat there. The doors of the safe In which the money was kept were closed, and ahe reflected that the small night fores Was probably asalstlng In the unusual task Of unloading the train t that hour. . Out of the office the hurried, aud, tak ing the upper floor because the knew rts windings j bettet and. there were fewer belts and shafts, she turned In the d) na tion of the great bins. Armiher roar told of a second car's dlspjsal, and she caught her breath a little aa she trembled let the should bs too late. At last ahe turned a comer in the tan gled path she was following and looked down the passageway along the wheal bins. A line ef beanis led toward the gleaming electric light at the farther end, aad to tha tight nut gaping space reached into tiro blackness far Mow. "Above the locomotive's tugging, aa tl pulled the loaded ' cars Into place fur the next dump.'.' coirld be heard tho rumhlaof the mill's aiachlnory, . . Annie hurried alone the nmrrw path waythe Ury oild i.H wlifcTi s,lio had met Mr. Grlswold when ho .ike to her alx-ut the Con ueme of being cnutfht uiid. r the shower of wheat, lldow, some V0 feet, was another Jlnu of plunks Jii.in past the hi (in, Into which, levil witi tl,u planks, doors oeneil These were for con venience In Im-pectliig ihecondltion of tln grain. On thla platform, his body bent as ho peered Into tho vust bin ut hi Mtle. whs the superintendent. Mu riMMignird Ms light gray co;;t and rust-t hlnu-i Hm pushed on, Intending when alio Jmil conic above him to call and warn hliu of possi ble danger. The rope with which ho Imd moved the lever to loosen tho contents of the last car hung at his tldo and was still swinging from his touch Ha was cvl aentjy scenting the grain for a suspicion of moldlness. Suddenly, before ahe was within hailing aistance, tnougn the wus not fur from a position directly above the superintendent, sne saw a black lorm hoot out from bo hind a heavy upright timber directly bo Llnd him. Tho atranger sneaked toward the door or the bin Into which part of his Intended victim's body still protruded. Tho lamo girl's heart almost t-tnod (.till with fright. She sank to tho narrow idut form, and crouching thero in tho upper aarsness watciieu helplessly tho atru going on below. The stranger had leaped upon tho su perintendent and wasattcnintiiiff to throw him into tho bin, but Mr. Grlswold fought bravely for his life. Once, twice, ho was almost a victor, but his assailant hud him at a disadvantage Already his head and shoulders wero bunging over the tlurk abyss Into which a carload of yellow wheat had sunk aud inado no imprtdslou on tho great spuce. Chunk I came a sound above ber head Annlo realized, with a shudder, that an other car had been brought Into position over the trapdoor and was ready to bo dumped. The stranger below had almost overcome the superintendent, and shosawthuscoun drel glance sldowlso toward tho ropo which moved the lover. Like a flash there camo upon her fur the, first time a realization of what a terrlhlo deed was Intended. Tho body of tho super intendent hurled Into tho bin, would bo covered with the flood of grain, and his fate would bo unknown for days, and per- Daps lor weeks and months. It was but a second now before the end would oomo. Already tho assailant h id pushed off thesuperintendent's hands, and sbo saw body and limbs disappear throng! the narrow door. She could not hear tlio body fall on tho soft mnssof grain beneath but she knew it was thero. The assassin tugged at tho door. IIo had nothing to do now but close und fasten It and pull tho lever, nud then thousands of bushels of wheat would burv tho un fortunato man as firmly and fatally ns though tho car above should itself fall Into tho cavern. Annie sprang to her feet and enzed a moment helplessly about her: then thero mot her glance tho long lever reaching out over the bin. If it only could bo held! If the trapdoor wero kept closed. It would keep bock the grain, and tho superintend ent might be saved. Tho stranger below had nearly closed the thick door. In a moment ho would pull the slender ropo. Sho looked at the lover. A weluht on the end over tho bin would prevent tho trap's moving. There was but ono way to accomplish it sho must hold It herself On hands and knees sho climbed to the edge of tho blu; then, reaching far out on the polo which moved the door, sho took a firm grasp. - A littlo tremble told her that the door hod been closed by tho stranger, and sho fearlessly swung otl't The slender polo bent and gwaved with ber weight, and sho shuddered lest tho lever should still work. If it did. she would be swept down Into the abyss over which she hung helplessly, and tho stream of grain pouring upon her would hkmii death to her as well as to the superintend ent. Her small, thin arms and hands wero weak. Already the muscles of her wristi were aching with the strain. Twitch I went the lover. Tho assassin was jerking the ropo. Again and n ;alu sho felt the jerk, but still tho lltho polo did not riso with her enough to loosen the trapdoor. Although tho whole affair had occupied but a moineut, it seemed to havo been hours. In an Instant longer she must loosen her hold, and then The man was evidently growing impa tlent, and she felt a jerk of unusual power. There followed a cracking sound, the lever broko, and she was falling through tho darkness, the broken piece of tho lever et 11 1 in her hands. As soon ns she realized anything further she was sliding down an inclined plane of wheat, aud a man s voice, that of tho su perintendent, was saying something to her. Far above they could seo tho gleam of the electric light streaming over tho edzo of the bin, with flour dust floating iu It like motes In a sunbeam. I saw him throw you In," sobbed tho child, 'and now thoy'll cover us bothl" "No, they won't," answered tho super intendent. "Tho trainmen will havo to fix the lever first, and they'll look about to see what's the matter." Presently the door through which ho had fallen was opened, and a lantern was swung In, followed in a i lomout by a trainman's head. Hello I" called thd muu. "What's the matter down thero? " I'm here! It's Grlswold I" tho super intendent answered. Annie heard a smothered exclamation of astonishment from the man. Ho sum moned help; ropes wore brought, and soon both sho and Mr. Grlswold were drawn up from their perilous position. The experionoo of tho night had added many lines to tho superintendent's face, and, though ho was relieved to find that the robbers, foiled In the execution of their plans, had vanished without disturbing the safo, the memory of whnt he had suf fered In anticipation atlll remained with him. As for Annlo, tho littlo "mill snrlto" did not lack for rewnrds and pral"c, either from the mill owners or from tho man whose 11 fo aho had saved.
