DRY IOWA IS A BIG PUZZLE TOCHICAGOAN By William Chicago, Feb. 25—In your recent communication you asked me to write a letter telling all about my> self, with tin* assurance that my old friends would be glad to hear from >. I am certain that if I have any friends in your county they may properly be referred to as "old," for It has been many, many years since I was n resident of the county, Indeed, I wnS a teacher under the late B. F. Reed, county superintendent, when we had long, long institutes mid exceedingly low pay for our services. In fact I was paid a stipend of $23 a month for my services. Just how the erudite 'board of directors determined that my services were worth exactly $23 a month Is still a matter of speculation for me. When I lived In your county the Hon. William Jennings Bryan was in his glory. He was the sine qui lion of Amerclan statesmen. Indeed, I may properly designate him, after mpartlally viewing the policies he advocated, as the greatest American statesman who was consistently vrong on every question he advocated. He was wrong on free silver, on the election of United States Senors, and on prohibition. Views on Prohibition. This suggests a few words on prohibition. I would not be so remiss n my affection for my native state vs to refer to the people of Iowa as pious peasants," as does Mr. Mencken, but I am sure that the hard lot of its people would be con- iderably alleviated if they could igh'ten the burden due to Doctor Hoover's depression by indulging In x drink now and then or ever and inon. How much more colorful would ife be if Algona had inns where Its nhabitants might assemble and dls- uss the issues of the day! Suppose ou had several places where intoxi- ants might be purchased, with such tames as The Boar's Head, The Blue loose, or any of the many names eferred to in English literature, lertalnly no dry area can produce uch characters as Shakespeare's Bardolph, Pistol, and Falstaff. And vhat a loss to literature it would ave been had there been no place or such eminent men as Doctor ohnson and Goldsmith to assemble! Would Bar tho Saloon. However, I would not recommend lie return of the saloon without a ourse of instruction to the Amer- can people as'to the manner of heir drinking. To that end I would uggest that they import a number f deer drinkers from Munich, Ger- nany. These men could form class- s and teach prospective drinkers low to spend an entire day in the ioneumptlon of one stein of beer. It may be objected that this would >e a waste of time; but isn't the ime spent at playing bridge or in .rite and shallow conversation equally a waste of time? And isn't .he time spent in aimlessly driving an automobile «iu*lly Waited* whai do people rtie'an" by th*ttrtri stinsr time"? fivldeiitly it is time devoted to things other thin to making moneyi And that 19 Just what our people must learn. Doubts Wisdom of nomocracy. In times like these, I begin to doubt the virtues of democracy. The asinine stupidity of our mayor, as shown by the conduct of hla. carri- jnign (for he uses an nss, a mule, and a horse on the stage) makes me hlnk more of Caligula of old Rome. The persistency with which the 'armors will vote dry, which Is tgainst their own Interest Is, if nythtng, the height of folly. , But everything In life Is contra- llctory. The child is taught by its •nother that' God created the world n six days; he goes to college and ls professor tells him his mother vas all wrong; that It required eons o create the world. On the one and we are admonished to "in- rease and multiply"; on the other o are told that the road to perdl- ion is paved with a four-car cement rack. But whatever doubts there may be bout questions religious, scientific, r political, I know you will not send me the .Advance unless I 'send you my check, so here goes. 21 ARE EMPLOYED AT TELEPHONE OFFICE The Algoni, telephone organization now consists of 21 employes, accord- ng to E.
