"We makfl Hirs? nss«r1!nn«; knwine and feeling its full nnd sweeping rxt^n!. but Facts and the truth will sustain 1? beyond a possibility of question." "There src exceptions — there nr*» t IfTKymrn in Chicago and northern Illinois who are models of Christian piety, but there are others who havr m)t only become pj'ofrweionul Horp, but, •who have bfcom* ultrrly lost, to shanr*. "Melancholy. humiliating, sickening fts is the consciousness of this fact, yet a blind political fury, wild find recklcs.-. fanacUcism, sustains these men in their conduct, nnd must eventually lead both people and preachers into tho of temporal as well as eternal ruin." The above appeared In The Dally Gazette Tuesday. It WR.I printed as an example of the kind of fanatical intolerance the vets arc handing the preachers and the churches engaged now in making an earnest effort to ke?p Governor Smith and the wet Democratic party from getting control of the nation —battling *.lmx»r*>ly to keep Hie nation from handing them power to go as fnr nn they CPU toward acuttliiiK prohibition. The above could be duplicxted to this campaign in hundred? of scathing, bitter and fanatical wet editorials throuthout the country eealnst churches pCTmittlng pastors to preach prohibition from their pulpit*. The above editorial shows how fanaticism stays with thoso who oppose progress throughout the generations. This editorial was printed in the Chicago Times, a Democratic paper, bitterly opposed to abolition, nearly sixty-four years ago. It was directed Bt the preachers who were preaching against slavery then, just <ta broadsides of abuse are being shot at preachers everywhere," nbrlli "or"" couth, by wet newspaper* and wet Democratic speakers, who are preaching for prohibition during this campaign. This editorial shows that the Intolerance of those wedded to booze Is exactly similar to the Intolerance of those wedded to slavery sixty or more j-cars ago. Slavery is dead. The intolerant* of slavery days are long dead, unhonored and unsung. The cause of progress long since smothered the bitter intolerance of those who stood for slavery. Tlie coming election Is sure to overwhelm the wet* who want booze, ae their lathers stood for slavery, and whose bitter and unreasonable intolerance still fights the losing battle to legalize rum, slavery IB dead, The saloon is dead— end neither Governor Smith nor Hie Democratic party can resurrect legalized booze. Men, Oauies, Leaders "What a man Is," eays Rabbi Barhett Brickner of Cleveland, "depends largely upon what he is a part of— separate and alone ha lunounU to nothing." Tlie rabbi made this remark to a group at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon, stressing the importance of euch mutual benefit organizations. His statement, however, applies to all of us, whftiher we. belong to a Chamber of Commerce or something else.

Do you remember the days of April, J917? There was a curious exaltation in the land then. We knew, in a vague sort, of way. that war was a horrible thing; yet, somehow, we felt uplifted. -We had found a cause. Something had appeared, bigger than any individual, to demand that we give ourselves cowptet«Jy,— I'feft-youiig-inen^who-left -fef -the training camps went gaily, jubilantly. Part of this, perhaps, was mere youthful love of adventure. But underlying that was som«thing more significant. The country was fe£tag asked to nuke a great sacrifice for the sake of a cause. It did not fail. After Iths •wwr there was a let-ttown. Th« returning -KoMttere were disinuslonKi; Th* older "|en» *r*tien* forgot the high >deals it Imd been gating on.

I don't mean that she actually complains, but she never sounds pleased about anything.

I know C he isn't always like that, because borne people who live near fcer gay she's quite is iot of fun sometimes. But she's always that way to me. And then she probably complains because I don't go there oftener or call her up more. I wish old folks would realise that even relatives can't keep on liking thtrn and wanting to we them if they always ebow their worst side to them." It would be a help, wouldn't it, to everyone concerned? To said relatives, who.would.Jhate. lifted from them that burden of heaviness that conies from contact with a person who loves to put his worst foot forward and talk in » lugubrious lone when you appear. ,,^ And to the old folks themselves, who wouldn6et'Tso~much more FwTland^Mfcritiou from being at tlwir b«j>t. fclit Lay tiaui* OH tier Daughter Another woman told t»e that her mother us*d to board at a summer iiot«l near here, and sh« went over every day to call and would iiud her sitting on the porch.

That Is a long list and It thoroughy an-| iwcrs Governor Smith's claim and' proves the farmer does not sell In nti unprotected market. Going a step further, let us con- liidcr the unfounded assertion of tho New York governor that the fanner buys everything not j>ro- cluercl by himself "in a protected market." There is not a penny of tariff paid by the farmer on anything In this list: Drills and planters, cultivators and harrow*, headers, horserakes, mowers, plows, reapers, thrashing machines, wagons, carts, pure-bred breeding animal*, binding twine, ce- mnnt, coal, barbed wire fencing, harness, rennet, lumber for building, cheap cream (separators and all other agricultural machinery and Implements.

Children h*?e a rather uncanny sense of the fitness of things, and a keenly developed sense of anything that i« not genuine, it Is purely Sn- BtlBcUw, but a Is there. 1 r,hould rather go up agninst a Jury for judgment than a schoolroom of youngsters. They know every time if a teacher rings true. And by the name token they know the snme thing of parents. Unconsciously a boy builds up an ideal of his father. Listen to a group of six-year-old*. "My dad can do thin." "My dad can do that." A little boy's father is his god. He likes to think of him as a little taller, a little stronger, a little smarter, a little kinder than any other fellow's father. A little girl Is apt to be more materialistic. 6h« will take her friends home and proudly show tliem the new chalr-coVers her mother has made; or the cake, or new drcsf,. The boy? ere your real sentimentalists, by* the way. Both boya and girls, however, have untold pride not only in their parents but in their homes. The family Instinct Is much more strongly developed in the child than In the adult. What happens, then, if by constant absence, or preoccupation caused by outside Interest*, a lather never has time to bestow hU favor on his worshipful little son. or a mother no time to do the thousand little things that little girls love? Sometimes it la not so much activity outtlde thrhomerfcut Wecr weariness of mind and body from keeping tip the home that causes this Inertia of parent* toward their children. A thousand things may causa it, even euch a distorted sentiment as the feeling that when children are housed, well-fed, and clothed, their parenU' part la done. i A merry heart rioeth gadd Rtoe s. iwdtetae; font a broken spirit, tirteth " " lt:», \ __ __ „„,„ nJt tne tnwn tmfr faoes from tlte ««js*r»? wjws can the? be? llcsmen.
