KANSAS SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRA
Ex-Governor Hoch of Kansas.
There are but four possible atti
tudes that government can sustain
toward the liquor trcffic. It must
sustain one of these. They are: No
license, low license, high license,
Time was when the liquor traffic
was regarded as being legitimate as
any other mercantile business. But
after a while it dawned upon
thoughtful people that this classi
fication or allignment was not just
right; that the liquor business im
posed public burdens upon the peo
ple which ?other lines of business
did not impose; .that it increased
taxation through the poverty and
crime for which it was directly and
indirectly responsible. And so, to
balance accounts, to get even with
it, to compel it to bear its own bur
dens, a low license was conceived
and imposed After a while, howT
ever, it was discovered that a low
license was not adequate for the pur
pose for which it was devised, and
a high license was originated. Thus
the evolution of thought, growing
out of experience, progressed, mak
ing, of course, a changing attitude
of government toward the traffic.
But all these experiments were only
eyeopeners. They were only the
morning twilight ushering in the
day of still better things.
Now it is known that prohibition
is the only logical and adequate at
titude of government toward the
traffic. If the business is good it
ought to be as free as any other
mercantile business, but if it is bad,
then government should have no
partnership whatever with it. To
this inevitable conclusion every
thinker must ultimately come. F'*ery
time a saloonkeeper pays a 1'cense,
bigh or low. he admits, by ?iia con
cession to a discriminative policy,
that he is engaged.in a business con
iemned by his neighbors.
Kansas has tried prohibition and
t has proved a great moral, educa
.ional and financial success. It is not
tn accident that our death rate is
learly one half less than the aver
ige in the United ?State; that more
)f our high school graduates go to
ligher institutions of learning, rela
ively, than is the case in any other
tate; that our assessed per capita
veal th exceeds that o? any other state :
hat we have more money per capita
n our banks than havethepeople of i
,ny other state in theirs, reserve :
>anks excluded; that one-third of
?ur counties- aro -without paupers in
heir poor houses or prisoners in
heir jails; that one-half of our eon
dots are non residents-transients
rom anti-prohibition states.
-I believe that no seventeen hun
Ired thousand people anywhere else
>nearth are relatively as sober oras
prosperous as are the people of Kan
sas, and the wise policy of prohibi
ten has contributed mightily to
.his good result.
Helen Keller, from a sea of silent
Everything has its wonders, even
.lark ness and si ?enc:', and I leam
whatever state I may be in therein
Lo be content. Sometimes, it is
true, a sense of isolation enfolds me
?ike a cold mist as I sit alone and
i\ait at life's shut gate. Beyond
there is light and music and sweet
companionship; but I may not enter
Fate, silent, pitiless, bars the way.
Fain would I question his imperious
decree, for my heart is still undis
ciplined and passionate; but my
tongue will not utter the bitter, fu
tile words that rise to my lips, and
they fall back in my heart like un
shod tears. Then comes hope with
a smile and whispers: "There is
joy in self-forgetfillness." So I
try to make the light in ethers' eyes
mr sun, the music in others' ears
my symphony, the smile on others'
lips my happiness."

3. Refrain from pulling fodder,

i. Begin preparation for the fall
seeding; work all land to go into
wheat or oats into tine tilth just as
soon as present crops come off.
5. In the cooler parts of our ter

6. Plant an alfalfa patch the last
of the month; also rape and turnips

the flies out; drain the mosquito
breeding places; whitewash and dis

Not a humble task disdaining,
Let me face the summons calmly

A banker in central Kentucky
was in the habit of wearing his hal
a good deal during his business
hours, as in summer the flies used
his bald pate for a parade ground,
and in winier the cold breezes
swept over its polished surface. A
negro workman on the railroad
each week presen ted a cheek and
drew his wages, and one day, as he
put his money in a greasy wallet,
the banker said:
"Look here, Mose, why don't
you let that money stay in the
bank and keep an account with
Thc darkey leaned toward him
and, with a quizzical look at the
Derby the banker wore, answered
"Boss, I'se jes' af eared. You
look like you was always
