TOM WATSON AT HARMONY GROVE-
Congressman Thomas £. Watson
speaks toaday at Harmony Grove,
and will doubtless have a large au
dience. His speech will be in advo
cacy of the principles of the Alliance
it is presumed. Col. Watson is go
ing into ground held sacred to"de
mocracy and will in all probability
keep the third party side of his
mouth shut during his speech and
talk with the democratic side.
Col. Watson says he is as good a
democrat as breathes the breath of
life, and for the time
around Jackson county
ter stick pretty close
Old Jackson county is trained in
the arena of democracy and knows
how to put independents to sleep.
And she would not hesitate to treat
third partyites in like manner.
We believe Col. Watson is trying
to get back into

THE BUSINESS PULSE.
Views of Commercial Experts
In last Sunday’s Constitution was an
article on tbe business outlook, and it
w ill bear reading over and over again.
1c was gotten up by Messrs Nichols and
Holliday advertising agents of the Con
stitution whose business extends all
over the Union. They are thrown
with all kinds of business in all seotions
of the country. They sought to find
out how tbe business pulse was beat
ing all over the country and they pro
posed to each one the question, “what
are the .prospects and general outlook
for business this fall ?”
The replies almost unanimously
hopeful, give a great variety of reasons
for the feeling of confidence which is
shown to be so pronounced in almost
every part of the country.
Taken all in all this comprehensive
sot of interviews Bbow that tbe outlook
is very hopeful.
