PROHIBITION KILLED KANSAS.
The grape juice industry is not the
only thing ruined by prohibition in
Kansas. In fact, prohibition has
killed about every industry in Kansas
except the raising of wheat, corn,
alfalfa, fruit, live stock, potatoes,
peas, cabbage, garden sass, chickens,
ducks, geese, horses, mules and
blooded cattle. It burst quite all of
our flourishing saloons and beer gar
dens and paralyzed many of our
prominent gamblers. It has absolu
tely killed the bartenders' union.
Where once the thriving saloon sent
the clamorous odor of its prosperity
out upon the sidewalks and clear
across the street we find nothing but
shoe stores, dry goods stores, meat
markets, clothing stores, grocery
stores and other sordid activities of
an unhappy people.
Where once you saw long strings
of men on Saturday nights going
joyfully into the rooms where the
doors were locked securely, where
there was sawdust on the floor and
a merry crowd at the mahogany bar
treating all around, and a man could
get his salary check cashed and
spend it all right there on his boon
companions and go enthusiastically
home and break up the furniture and
give his wife a black eye; instead of
all these manifestations of a pros
perous and thrifty citizenship as in
our saloon days we see men go quiet
ly into the butcher shops and grocery
stores and then go lugging home
great bundles of supplies.
What a sad result of the banish
ment of saloons. Prohibition has left
little of Kansas except her fields, fac
tories, schools, stores, pens of fat'
cattle and her sober, happy and pros
perous people. W. M. T.
THE COMING. If we carefully
study the words of the prophets we
shall find that the following is a con
cise statement of the conditions
which should prevail on the earth at
the end of the time as clearly record
ed in the sacred writings and holy
books of all religions, and those who
possess clear minds must realize the
necessity of the fulfillment of these
great premises and the evolution of
humanity to a perfect civilization and,
a high station.
These are the conditions which!
will characterize the day of God:
When the three divine spirits arise
(the forerunner, the manifestation
and the branch) and their heavenly
lights shine, the clouds of supersti
tion and ignorance which have ob
scured the light of the sun of truth
will be cleared away and the pearls of
real knowledge wfll become mani
fest As it is said: "The root of all
knowledge is the knowledge of God
Glory be to Him! And this knowledge
is impossible save through His mani
festation." At that time differences of religion;
will pass away, all nations will unite
in the worship of the merciful, adora
tion of satan will be annulled and the
Lord will renovate all things, change
affairs throughout the whole world,
whereat all the people of the earth
will rejoice. Knowledge will become
general, the arts and sciences in all
nations, distance will be annihilated,
the people of different religions will
affiliate and unite as one family. The
fires of hatred and rancor, burning iu
the hearts and minds of men, will be
extinguished, good feeling and love'
prevail and the spirit of brotherhood
become established, the souls of
men will rejoice when touched by
the spiritual fragrance and their
hearts will delight in spiritual things.
