Written- for the Home Journal.
A poor, despondent sinner I;
Ti's hell to live, I dare not die.
O, tender Lord,thy pity show,
Thy mercy lend, thy wrath be slow.
I fain would turn and fly to Thee,,
And from my wickedness would flee;
But I am weak and cannot break
From Satan, who my soul would take.
Pioneer Democratic Utterance.
The Empire States.
So help me Lord, thy power lend
To cast from me my load of sin;
For Lord, I know thy | promise sure,
And Lord, thy mercies aye endure.
Before thy throne I bow the knee.
O Lord, in mercy look on me
And when my life on earth is done,
I’ll praise Thee, Lord, beyond the sun-

A Wise Provision.
What hard-working man is there
but rejoices that in the very econ
omy of the world one day in seven
was set aside for rest—to be kept
forever holy? Six days of toil and
worry and anxiety carries both
body and mind to the verge of col
lapse ; rest and respite are imper
atively needed. As to whether
the day is to be spent in public
worship or in the quiet of the
home, in the companionship of
the family and those genuine
friends of humanity that perpetu
ate themselves in their book, may
be open for debate; but there can
be no difference of opinion abou^
tho intermission of every day .The
day is one of man’s inalienable
rights; there is now power vested
anywhere to rob. him of it. He
needs it to refresh himself for fu
ture effort, to replenish wasted
energy, to commune with himself
andhisMakdr. If he prefers to
hold converse with the visible
forms of nature, let, him be free
to do so. What we need as much
as anything is more first-hand in-
dependance thinking. Thought
brings out the divine in a man as
nothing else will or can. God
speed the time; when’all,the wheels
of activity shall stand still one
day in geven, when there shall, be
cessation of all work save the . ab
A Custom officer at New York
some time ago ruled that a hand
organ was a “tool of trade and
not a musical instrument.” The
board of classification of the cus
toms service has now decided that
a swan is a bird and not a fowl
poultry, under the Dingley
tariff act. Thus is the sum of
our knowledge being increased by
the excellent gentlemen who
chosen to administer the customs
because they can control votes
find it to be one of their func
tions to make classifications that
might puzzle scientists.

Indiana’s Democracy deserves
the cordial commendation of the
American people for the enuncia
tion of Democratic principles in a
State platform which makes a
leading issue of the tariff and the
trusts and pledges the State \ can
didates to a faithful observance
of those principles.
The Indiana Democratic plat
form opens with a declaration on
the tariff and the trusts as fol-!
“We denounce the Republican
party for its surrender to and alli
ance with the trusts, and we favor
such action as will surpress and
destroy all trusts or combinations
to control the production and the
price of commodities. We de
nounce the Dingley tariff law as
the breeder of trusts aud demand
that tariff duties shall be levied
for the purpose of, revenue only
and limited by the needs of the
government honestly and econo
mically administered. We con
demn the Republican party for
refusing to give the Interstate
Commerce Commission power to
enforce its decisions against dis
criminations in railroad rates,
which discriminations have been a
potent cause of the creation and
maintenance of trusts, and we de
mand that the commission be giv
en power to suppress this evil.’?
This is a plain pronouncement
on the leading issue of the day,
and.plaaes Indiana Democracy in
line on the side of the people as
against the trusts. The people
may rest in confidence that the
National democracy will take the
same stand, And that the Congres
sional* campaigns of the present
year and the Presidential cam
paign of 1904 wil.l^ be fought on
the issue of the tariff and the
trnsts. (That issue is vital indeed,
and the American public has of
late received certain object les
sons which have aroused the pop
ular mind tq a full realization of
the necessity for a settlement. So
general is the puplicunderstand
ing of the trust and tariff evil at
this time that even in the ranks
of the Republican party itself
there is a disaffection which makes
harmonious party action omi
nously difficult. ■ .
The Democratic organization in
Indiana has in its State platform
sounded a clear call to the politi
cal battle of 1902. 'The Demo
cratic party and a majority of the
Americans will fall in line at that
call, arrayed for confiiqt with the
tariff-bred trusts and the party of
the tariff and the trusts. They
must win the fight if the country
is to be rescured from oppressive

census report' for 1900 shows that
there were 224,091 farms in Geor

value was $188,370,120. The val

was 25 per cent, of the total value
of the farms. The farm imple
ments and machinery were valued
at $9,804,010, and the live stock
at $85,200,507, making a' total

value of farm products for 1899—
the year before tho census was

amount 17 per cent, was in ani

crops produced on the farm. "In
