REV. SCUDDER, REV. SNYDER
Rov. Doremug Scudder has stated
from the Central Union church pul
pit Hint he has been converted to
Prohibition by what he has learned
of Maine and 'of Kansas. When an
evangelical pastor of many ) ears'

"converted," it naturally attracts at
tention, and by some his conclusions
are takon as final.
Hut there are others, whoso Judg,
