' Delegates to conventions are ex
pected to carry out the instructions
given them by the convention or e
emblege by which they are appointed.
Instructions constitute the condition
upon which the commission to rep
resent a constituency is given, and no
one who does not want' to recognize
such conditions should accept the com
mission. The only possible excuse for
avoiding or evading instructions would
be a charge that the instructions were
procured by fraud or other illegitimate
It develops that for the forthcom
ing democratic and republican state
conventions the majority of delegates
in each are under Instructions one way

but, while it is essential that more
land be devoted to cotton and more
science be put into its production, so

also important to know that Dixie is
destined to become one of the great
corn-producing sections if its natural
resources are properly developed.
Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas the
states from which we are told the peo
ple are going to Georgia, Alabama and
Florida are not suffering. Nebraska,
at least, is continually drawing in
more people than it is sending out and
its available farming land is steadily
rising in price and being bought and
developed. It will continue to offer
superior advantages in the way of soil,

Some absurd antic have been com

for the town of Hutchinson to cap the
climax of nonsense by adopting an or

Thoughts on Ingratitude.
Inspired by the torridlty of
season, we have culled together these
few thoughts on Ingratitude well cal

pensive mood:
