INTERESTING TO A FARMER
Closing of Distillery and Brewery
Would Set at Liberty Large Amount
of Capital and Labor.
(By PROF. JOHN A. NICHOLS.)
They cry out that if the liquor traf
fic is abolished one of the markets for
grain will be destroyed and a terrible
calamity will fall upon the farmers.
But the closing of the distillery and
brewery would set at liberty a large
amount of capital and labor which
would be diverted to other channels
of business, including among other
things the development of produce and
its adaptation to the wants of the
people. Many millions of dollars now
expended in liquor would be expended
in farm produce of various kinds.
There is a large proportion of our
people who do not consume as much
of our farm produce as they need and
desire, because of the waste of wealth
In the consumption of intoxicants, and
if this waste ceased the demand for
farm produce would at once increase.
Experience has shown that the closing
up of the saloons and the outlawing j
of the liquor traffic has always Droved j
a great benefit to every legitimate in
dustry. A chapter in the history of
Ireland furnishes a graphic Illustra
tion. During the years 1809-10 and
1813-14 the distilleries of Ireland were
stopped on account of the famine, on
the ground that these distilleries
wasted the grain that might other
wise be used by the people as food.
The results were surprising. The con
sumption of spirits fell off nearly one
half. On the other hand there was a
tremendous increase in the demand
for dry goods, blankets, cotton goods,
sugar, hardware, crockery, groceries
and other necessities, thus showing!
that a year of scarcity with prohibition ;
is better than a year of plenty with- j
TO DO AWAY WITH ALCOHOL!
New Regulation in Federal Military
Expected to Bring Relief to Evils
It ls notorious that drinking and
drunkenness are great evils connected j
with army life. It was to protect the
soldiers from this debauchery that the I
canteen was abolished. To further j
stimulate them to lead temperate
llveB an order has been Issued by the
federal government which reads as
"Provided, that no officer or en
listed man in active service, who shall
be absent from duty on account of dis
ease resulting from his own intem
perate use of alcohol or drugs or other
misconduct shall receive pay for the
period of such absence from any part
of the appropriation."
This new regulation in our federal
military service ls expected to bring
relief at least in some measure, to
the evils complained of; also lt ls re
garded as another step toward abolish-1
lng the use of alcoholic beverages In i
the army entirely. j

PROPER CARE OF CUT GLASS
rf Treated With Proper Consideration
Glassware Should Last for
When glassware is treated with con
sideration it will Last for a generation,
but in the hands of a careless maid its
beauty is soon marred by cracks or
broken edges. When a few simple
precautions are followed its brilliancy
and flawless surface will remain for
years in a state of preservation.
Tepid water, the best castile or oth
er pure soap, and a stiff bruah are
the first essentials. After washing
and rinsing place the cut glass In
boxwood sawdust. This will absorb
the moisture in the cutting. Next
remove the sawdust from the plain
surfaces with a soft cloth. By fol

With a Little Care Soiled Floor Cov

Many a housewife's heart aches
when she notices spots which mar the

remove them. Mix together a quantity
of fuller's earth and enough boiling
water to make a paste. Apply this
mixture to the grease spots while it is
quite hot and do not bruah it away
until it is thoroughly dry. Equal quan

prove especially efficacious if applied
to the spots.
