It is stated that the farmers,
who compose fifty per cent of the
country's population, only com

certainly a college is not the place

Those politicians whos? wont
has been to set their sails to catch
the popular breeze are somewhat
nonplused.. The sudden, yet
certain, revulsion of sentiment
concerning the Great Moral In
stitution-which term now passes
current as a synonym of the dis
pensary-in many eections of the
state has greatly troubled the
^waters of the political sea. The
man who contemplates asking for
the suffrage of the people twelve
months hence stands, with knitted
brow, perplexed with this ques
tion : "Must I oppose or favor
the dispensary"? During the past
decade those who have aspired to
office have not been confronted
with this question, for there was
but one course to pursue: that of
vindicating the dispensary and
boot-licking its officials, from Ih
private in tho rear rank of the
constabulary to the Grand Sachem,
the chairman of the board of di rec
tors. Hitherto, cursed has been

liquor by the state-henceforth

Now it has come to pass that

voced out the dispensary and
that at least two others will soon
vote on the "dispensary or no dis

seems to me that at our next pri

that the dispensary would
be voted out two to one. Let's try
