Shorn-.: Ihrow Their Influence With the Democrats. "Whatever criticisms may be made against the democrats by those inclined to find fault with both of the old parties, it must be conceded by any one who has gone to the trouble to inform himself on the records of the two parties on the labor, land, tariff, money and other questions affecting the general prosperi ty of the country that the democratic party has stood by the masses of the people while the republicans have in variably taken sides with the corpora tions and monied classes. In view of this fact every anti-monopolist, Knights of Labor, and all others working to advance the interests of the people as against the favored few should not hesitate to support the democratic can didates for both state and local offices where they are good, honest, efficient men....

PLAY-WRITING. -Dion noucirault Kcreals the Secret ofHU Literary Work-Shop. A drama is composed of a series of scenes, each leading to the next, for continuity is the soul ot interest. In any other works of fiction the novelist or the poet can arrest the action, to moralize; or to develop. He may even retrograde, and take his reader back; but the dramatist must go on, for he represents life :i.-it flows life in action, not in description. In shaping his work' it is necessary that no scene shall be longer than the suffering requires that is, when an incident inflicts suf fering on the characters he must not prolong such a scene beyond the natural'- "amount of suffering' which the characters would endure,nor fall short of what is due. If the novelist oflends n this way the reader may skip, but if a dramatist does so the spectator yawns or gets impatient. J. lie dramat ist first settles on a good subject. The plot is the treatment of the subject. Thus?Sheridan thought of a rich old iiij...
