A newcomer in the country might be
led to believe, on taking a glance at the
liaaduness of some 01 tue leaning

the thoughtful, public-spirited citizens
of hc country. Indeed, this particular
individual, after reading and listening
to these utterances, would, in all proba
bility, take the view that the presumption
of the republicans in desiring to choose a
ticket for themselves at all was a sort of
political sacrilege which the sensible, de
cent and self-rcsncctiti" people of the
country would effectively and fittingly

This, as we have intimated, would be
the view which the stranger would take
of the situation. The "old inhabitant,"
however, would not fall into any such
error. lie would remember that in 1880
the democrats were even more confident
of winning than they are this year.

WORDS TO THE UNWISE
MOTIVES WHICH SHOULD GOVERN
THOSE WHO MATE FOR LIFE.
Ererjr Consideration Weighed Kxcept the
Laws of Heredity Crime and IMneiwe
Transmitted from Generation to Gener
ation Importance of Sanitary Marriage.
Men and women in marrying seem to weigh
every consideration rather than the natural
and scientific laws of heredity. They form
alliances from motives of comfort, conveni
ence, business, influence, riches, pique in
fact, for well nigh every purpose under the
sun except that of securing the most iierfect
offspring. Strict reusoners hold that even
the passion of love should weigh as nothing
in the scales with that. When the laws of
sanitary parentage shall have been thor
oughly mastered and systematized and become
generally known and acted, upon, then we
may look for that marked amelioration of
our kind or wbicn poets ana pmiosopiaers
have dreamed. Let the reader ask himself
how many instances he has known where the
solo reason for remaining single was actual
ill health, or the suspicion that some taint
had been inherited which was likely to de
velop into disease some time in after life.
He must acknowledge that if he knows of
any sucn cases tiiey are very lew niueeo.
The reasons for marriage are evident to all.'
There are, too, sufficient reasons why some
people should not many. The latter, how
ever, weigh but little against the former. To
secure a partner to share their labors is what
influences many men to take unto themselves
MARRIED FOR A IIOME.
How often we hear it said that this one
and that one "married for a home." Tho
impression would imply a lock of sentiment,
and certainly does sound eminently practi
cal. And yet, undoubtedly, many happy
marriages have been contracted by those
whoso first prompting was a desire for that
comfort and peace one rarely finds except in
"a home of his own. That this is a selfish
world, none can deny. Each seeks to use tho
other for purposes of his own, and life with
us all is one constant struggle, or we are soon
left behind in the headlong scramble. Only
in our homes can we find rest. A yearning
for sympathy prompts many to marry,
and naturally we choose mates with
kindred hopes and aspirations with
ourselves. If one does not marry,
ho sooner or later learns to feel that the
world has little interest in him beyond what
he contributes to its welfare and selfish ends.
Man and wife labor for each other's good;
each contributes to the other's welfare. Not
alwavs the first reason for marriage is tho
gratification of love. As has been said:
"This is the highest sentiment of the human
heart. Intellect pales before it. The sacred
book could have said nothing more exalted
when it avowed that 4God is love.' All hu
man hearts have somewhere and sometimes a
desire to love and be loved. A loveless life is
a starved life. Love warms human nature;
it sets it on fire. It can receive its highest
development only in marriage. The loves
between friends are very beautiful, but the
love between man and woman in a perfect
marriage is divine."
These are some of the reasons for marriage.
Others might be given, but it is purposeless
to consider them. Any one of the many
weighs sufficiently in any case where the ten
dency exists. The child of consumptive
parents rarely, hesitates to enter the holy
state. Nor does the young man or woman
with a mother or father in the madhouse
often feel that it is a duty to remain single
lest that terrible misfortune be theirs by in
heritance. In fact, notwithstanding some
grave and fatal malady has reapiieared down
the line for generation after generation, sel
dom, if ever, is a member of that family de
terred from marrying, although he could
scarcely commit a greater sin when he does
so. Hence certain diseases are perpetu
ated which might otherwise possibly become
extinct, and children are brought into
the world to drag out a sickly existence, and
eventually succumb, after months, if not
years, of intense suffering. In the human
race there is a process of natural selection
favorable to the improvement of the race,
"but," says one writer, "it is interfered with
by other influences money, caste and other
social considerations. Choice is in this way
restricted. A rich husband is preferred to a
handsome or healthy or clev.er one. A large
dowry may induce a man to put up with a
scrofulous wife. A consumptive young lady
may have a good connection. An exhausted,
broken down roue may have a title or an es
tate. We know what people mean by a 'good
match.' It never means health or beauty or
intellect. It may not even mean good morals
THE HEREDITY OF CRIME.
"Seriously, people who think of getting
married ought to think a littlo more about
it. There are persons who ought not to
marry. There are persons who would be
criminal if they handed down to posterity
tho physical, moral or mental results of a
bad organization or of their vicious demor
alization. Our most careful scientists tell us
that drunkenness is hereditary ; that many
crimes arc hereditary; that madues3, murder
and suicido ore hereditary. Our criminal
population is composed of the children of
criminals. The prisons are filled with a
criminal raco as the workhouses are filled
with a raco of paupers. Change of condi
tions, no doubt, may redeem such a race,
but it would bo safer to discourage its
perpetuation. Men and women marry for
themselves when they 6hould marry for their
posterity. The greatest gratitude a man can
owo to his grandfather is for giving him a
good, wise, healthy grandmother, and vice
versa. Shakespeare makes ono of his char
acters thank his mother fervently for giving
him such a father. How many a man and
woman havo earned the curses of their chil
dren for giving them bad fathers or moth
ers." Says one writer: "Many think love between
two persons justifies their marrying. This
is not so. Beautiful as this passion is,
heavenly as is its source, it dots not justify
doing a wrong to offspring which may curse
generations yet unborn. We use the word
curse advisedly, for disease is the greatest of
all curses and indirectly leads to crime. A
majority of all criminals are either diseased
or have an imperfect physical development.
Those who have spent much time in criminal
courts must have observed that a majority
of persons convicted of crimes are inferior
in their physique. They ennnot earn an
honest living by honest work, and so they
try to do it by light fingered employments.
Besides, there is acquired quite enough dis
ease on life's journey, without transmitting
the infirmities of one generation to another."
We repeat, the subject of sanitary mar
riage is one on which the world sadly needs
enlightenment. We have simply given food
for thought. Even from the little that baa
beau said it must appear that those who con
template marriage, if otherwise than healthy,
should weigh well tho step they are taking.
Not only should they seek wise counsellor

TJTE DEADLY DRUGS
WHICH ARE COMING INTO USE IN
PLACE OF ALCOHOL.
What New York City KruegUU Say on
the Subject The Mania for Treating
One's Own Ailment Narcotics, Stimu
lants and Sopor i Acs,
An up town druggist who was spoken to
about the subject said: "I sell a good deal
of both chloroform and ether without pre
scriptions, but I dont consider that, so long
as my drugs are not intended for suicidal
employment or murder, I have any right to
ask what is going to be done with them. I
know what the law is, but deem that a drug
gist must exercise some discretion in con
forming to it. v"hy, a majority of the
things on my shelves, things not commonly
classed as poisons, either, a person could kill
himself with if he were fool enough to take
too much of them. And bore's a 'respect that
gives us pause' when we think of strictly
applying the law. A groat many persons are
told by their physicians to take this or that
medicine, do so, find themselves bettered or
cured; subsequently havo a recurrence of the
old symptoms, and, remembering what did
them good before, come around and demand
it. Very possibly the druggist knows them,
understands why they want the drug, or has
sense enough to understand that they are tell
ing the truth when they make a frank state
ment of the situation. What is the apoth
ecary to do? Even if the man wants a deadly
poison, he knows how to take it, wants it for
a good reason, and is bound to get it some
where. Would my refusing him make him
go off and get a prescription? Not much,
unless mine was the only drug store.in town.
Another thing: "I don't believe there are any
people in tho world who have such a mania
for treating their own ailments and exchang
ing recipes as Americans havo. Every street
is full of men who have attended medical
lectures with the idea of being doctors, and
who have abandoned that purposo, but still
think they know enough of medicine to treat
their own maladies and advise their friends.
And, of course, with tho American disposi
tion to play every hand for all it is worth,
they havo little confidence in anything but
the most powerful drugs. So from these
various directions comes a mora or less legit
imate and certainly honest demand for my
'cold pizen,' and I just use ray own best
judgment, in each individual case, about sup
"I have a good deal of call for hydrate of
chloral, but hardly so much as a few years
ago, when it was a fashion. Bromide of pot
assium is also in good, steady, anl, I fancy,
increasing demand among ladies with weak
nerves and gentlemen of super convivial
habits. The use of rnorphinw is, I should say,
increasing, while that of laudanum and the
crude opium is falling off. When I say 'use'
I mean improper use of course, aiid when I
Bpeak of a diminished demand for t he crude
opium I except tho kind used for smoking,
which is altogether different from the medi
cinal sort. That does not pass through my
hands at all, and about the call for it I know
nothing. Morphine is generally used hypo
dermieally. It is now practicablo to get a
complete outfit for that vice as cheaply as
seventy-five cents, and that, together with
certain supposed advantages in that method
of administration, has popularized the habit
Tens of thousands of persons of whom you
would never suspect it are addicted to the
vice. 'Cocaine V No. There are few or, I
may say, no demands for it, except from
doctors, some of whom, I regret to say, have
got into tho habit of demanding it altogether
too frequently. Drugs accredited with a
power of stimulation of the 6tomach, heart
or nervous systeni especially the latter are
more and more commonly usedr You would
be astonished could you know bow many per
sons havo contracted a habit of using capsi
cum, ginger, calisaya, strychnia, quinine,
digitalis, phosphorus, and the thousand and
one nostrums compounded for stimulative
purposes. I verily believe that at least ono
person in every hundred in tho community
has such a confirmed habit - 'Cannabis ludi
cusf No. There is but little call for it, even
in prescriptions, for the reason, I think, thai
invaluable as it is when fresh, cf full strength,
and reliable, its active principle is so volatile
that you never are sure of what its effects
will be. Could it be depended upon it would
bo ono of the least injurious and most agree
able of tho intoxicants."
Another druggist said: "I used to sell a
great deal of narcotic, soporific and stimu
lant drugs while clerking in a big Broadway
store, but in this new place of my own not
much, as yet. No, I don't suppose it is be
cause people have stopped taking them, not
by any means, but simply for tho reason that
I have not yet been here long enough for
3 them to get to know mo and feel that they
f , . i r , ,
can approacu mowitn commence, persons
who are habitual users of drugs generally
get to be quite secretive about their vice, you
know. I do, however, sell a vast deal of a
very excellent bitter calisaya cordial that I
put up myself; and another preparation, a
tonic, containing phosphorus, strychnia and
some other valuable ingredients. Both are
iiold nt my soda fountain, and two out of
every three persons at least of those who call
for soda will have one or the other, or some
times both of those preparations. I even
have customer? who stop every morning and
get vials of them to take down town to their
oCices for uso during the day, and who stop
nt night and leave the empty vial3 to be re
filled for tho next day. At night, at home,
they have big bottles to draw from if they
want to keep up their stimulation."
Tho mention of tho opium smokers by the
preceding druggist suggested tho inquiry of
an exceptionally clever literary man, who
was casually met one day at Yuet Sing's
store, "whether tho breaking up of the
'joints' had diminished opium smoking in
New YorkT "Not at all," he replied; "there
is more of it now than there ever was before.
It is simply carried on with more secrecy,
that is all. The palo faced barbarian has not
the ghost of a show to run John Chinaman in
his way. The Mongol is too cunning. If he
wants to smoke opium ho will smoke opium,
and the only way to make him stop it is to
kill him. But it is by no means Chinamen
alone who 'hit the pipe.' There are more
Melican men and women in New York ad
dicted to the habit than there are Chinamen
who practice it, and they are by no means
the offscourings of society' to quote the
pet phrase of the people who want everybody
else to live in their way. Very respectable
men, yes, and women, too, smoke opium.
And the 'joints' are not closed. Those known
to the police are, it i3 true, but I, who am
recognized as one who occasionally hit3 the
pipe' and can be trusted, could show you a
dozen places where you might smoke the wad
of Oriental delight in any degree of stylo you
A German druggist, who developed in con
versation a conscientiousness almost as big
as his ears or his feet, would not even talk
about the use of drugs otherwise than by pre
scription, lest he might bo violating the law.
He knew nothing about such things, ho said,
and was scandalized and horrified beyond
measure when the writer asked him for some
