So he -mounted the stand and began: "Lust week I dwelt briefly on the relations of the political system to the industrial system. The two aire inseparable. The industrial system is that by which the means of living ure produced the bread and butter proposition. The polit ical system is that which regulates NKW such agitation.' The Demo crats, a little more bold, soy they will 'hksiht all attempts at renew ing the agitHt ion of slavery.' What more could the slave power ask!

Whether the secret of the fascination lies in the difficulties which beset the search for the rarer species, or whether it Is the strange forms, sweet per fumes and tropical appearances of many of the flowers belonging to this eccentric family that inspire so vivid a delight In the breast of man, it Is hard to determine; but assuredly the traveler experiences a thrill of ec stasy akin to awe on finding one of these uncanny plants closely hidden In some shaay swamp, or deep-set amid the tall, rank herbage of the hills.
