In spite of the beastly majority of one thousand or more which has be"n rolled up against Democrats in th's county at presidential lections fcr some years past there Is Just now a healthy scramble for places on the ticket for the coming primarlrs. Good sign. Business men of Cairo are g lug to have a sort e-f Love Feast this after noon at the Alexander club grill roeni at which some advance ought to be made toward that state of harmony which Mr. Hert urged 8s an essentia to community progrc-ss In his address at the Commercial club Thursdav nlsbt Cairo retail grocers are said to have resolved that the city council shall raise the license on pedlers' wagons to $25 per annum instead of $1 2.50. and prohibit pedllng before 10 a. m. What the city council ought to do is to establish a market bouse. Such a place would attract farmers to the city and would be a great benefit to business men and consumers alike. There are few eities that make any pretension to metropolitan rharaete are without market houses; and they are a source of revenue to the cities everywhere.

"1 Great Is Mystery of Heredity By DS. ANDREW WILSON, Scientist. heoomings. because if "like begets like," as the phrase runs, "like" also begets variations, and out of these latter arises .the prospect of new races and sjavie. The problem of inheritance is. therefore, primarily one of accounting for the transmission of parent characters to offspring, but it also includes llie explanation of departures from the parental type. For it is not only parent-resemblance which is inherited, hut the departures or dixergenejes from that type which, when fully established, send the organism on the highroad of variation. It may be said that the main problem of heredity or, if we can state it otherwise, the chief difficulty of the whole topic is centered around two theories or views of the possible way of inheritance. Granted that in a general way the features of the parent are reproduced in the o!T spriiig, how, it may be irepiired, are the ariaiioiis which are found in tJl organisms transmitted? It is not so much the plain-sailing way of hered ity we have to regard, as the little by-paths that are always leading away from the parental typ, whit h fail to la- considered. Darwin and Spencer, and Lamarck before them, entertained the idea that a variation iHcurrin.u' in the parent aa the result of some personal modification of its structure could le, and usually was, handed on to the progeny. A bird developing on increased strength of w ing would thus be naturally e.xpe ted to have such increase represented in its dps,-, ndants. The long neck of the giraffe, it was held by Lamarck, was the reult of 'continued strain on bone and muscle, induced by ancestors endeavoring to reach foliage for food when grass was scarce or want'g. This idea was formulated as the doctrine of the transmission of acquired character.-, and under this term it is still known; and, what is equally to the point, accepted wholly r in part as a theory of heredity by many (ompotuit naturalists. Opposed to this view is that which we owe in is fullest exposition to Weismnnn. Maintaining that the gcrmplasin (or substance from which the reproductie elements are developed is essentialh different from and unaffected by conditions which alter rnd modify the body-plasm (that is, the bodily substance at large), Weis;rann holds that all inheritance re mains unaffected by characters acquired by the panntal frame. It is to minute and infinite-irnal ariation of the gertn-phi-m that departures from the parent type are due. The middle way, if such exists, would appear to take llie form of a puggction that in many -a-s what is transmitted is the tendency to de ehp in particular lines, tather than the actual or quick reproduction of new phases. Nature would seem to launch the iiioompletor vessel anil to have it to environment to favor cither iu completion or its demolition. 3 Weak Point in Charity Work By FlAftCIS H.
