NOT ALL BEER ADVOCATES.
(From address by Miss Anna A. Gor
don, president of the National W. C. T.
IT., before, the senate Judiciary subcom
mittee. May L)
One of the speakers at the hearing
on April 25 stated that all Germans
are drinkers. We are sorry our Ger
man friends do not know that many
hundreds of German women lu this
country are members of the Woman's
Christian Temperance union, and in
Germany we have a. splendid following
of thousands of total abstainers, band
ed together in a national society of ab
staining women of Germany affiliated
with the World's Woman's Christian
Temperance union. The white-ribbon
?rs of Germany have fer their presi
dent the great-grandn'?ce of the gal
lant Gen. von Blucher, who k'd th?3
allied forces with Wellington in the
famous battle of Waterloo.
We are surprised that our German
friends did not allude to the most con
spicuous figure in the fatherland, Em
peror Wilhelm, whose good advice to
the naval cadets to let alcohol alone
has everywhere been noted and com
mended. Evidently the kaiser believes
as we do. that the naval defenders of
a great country must be total abstain
ers if they are to reach the necessary
degree of efficiency in service.
The gentleman also asserted that
Von Moltke was a drinker. We know
that he was a total abstainer. Von
Moltke said, "Beer ls far more danger
ous to Germany tnan all the armies
of France." Our German 'ends
claimed that beer has great foou raino.
Germany's famous chemist and sci
entist. Liebig, many years ago de
clared "There is more nourishment in
the amount of flour that can be held
on the blade of a knife than there is
In a quart of the best Bavarian beer."
All Germana do not agree with the
speaker that beer should not be
classed with alcoholic liquors. "It is
Just this precious beer," writes Dr.
Max Graber, president of the Royal
Institute of Hygiene at Munich,
"which lowers the intellectual capacity
and willpower of thousands and thou
sands of people and makes them old
before their time, ruins stomach, liver,
heart, and brain; brings them into the
poorhouse and prison, hospital and
asylum, and early puts them under
From Noah down, men have used
and abused intoxicants, but that sig
nifies nothing whatever. From Noah
down, men have done all sorts of fool
things, and as to some of the things
have gradually learned that they were
follies and so eschewed them. George
Washington drank rum before break
fast. There is no more reason for
sticking to George's; ram than for cup
ping and bleeding patients for every
Illness. That normal human nature
does not need alcohol we know from
the millions of men and women who
do without it-and female human na
ture has always been able to subsist
without getting drank. The histori
cal argument is bogus. The moder
ate drinker need not be considered
at all; for If a man is truly a moder
ate drinker, alcohol is of such slight
account to him that its presence or
absence can make DO difference.

JUDGMENT OF THE NATIONS.
Matthew 25:31-46-Sept. 20.
"Inasmuch an pe did it not unto one of tbe
least of these, ye did it not unto Me."
IN the past many of us read the
Bible too carelessly. For In
stance, today's lesson was nt one
time applied to the Church. We
failed altogether to notice that it says
not one word respecting the Church,
but is entirely applied to the heathen.
The Jews were accustomed to think of
themselves ns God's people, and to
style all others heathen. Gentiles, na
tions. In the prophecies God treated
the matter from this standpoint

! "Before Him shall be gathered all un
! tions." All the world, except Gods
holy nation, the Church, will be before
His great white Throne of Just iee
Mercy and Love. Then will be their
j judgment time.
Six thousand years ago. in Eden.
j Adam ?md his entire race were judged,
and the sentence was death. In due
time God sent His Son to die for
Adam's sin. so that "as by a man came
death [of the entire race], by a man
(Jesus] also will come the resurrection
of the dead"-[the entire race]. "For
ns all In Adam die. even so nil in Christ
shall be ni"?3e alive"-"every man in
his own order."-1 Corinthians 15:21. 22.
The first to be made alive in Christ
is the Church. These pass their judg
ment thi J. for life or death ever
lasting lu ,ne present time. Hence
the worthy ones will be quite ready
to be Messiah's Bride class, joint-heirs

soning. It is along this line that the
parable before us teaches: namely, that
outwardly sheep and goats will have
much the same appearance, except to
the Judge, the King. He will read tile
heart, and ultimately will manifest to
-ll that there has been a real heart dif
ference bet reen the two classes, all

The prison referred to In the parable
is undoubtedly the great prison-house
of death, into .which approximately
twenty thousand millions of individ
uals already have gone. During the
Millennium the awakening froin the
dead will, we believe, come about by
Divine Power, answer to prayer.
Thus the race will come forth in re

OCCUPATIONS FOR DOGS.
A Variety af Jobs ls Now Open to the
"Dogs with au occupation." writes a
correspondent of an English periodical,
"are much happier than dogs without.
They are so full of energy that they
love to be occupied. And yet except
for sheep tending-, house watching and
for sporting purposes, we give them
little or nothing to do. Look at the
dog belpiug to pull a baker's handcart

New occupations have been made for
dogs in the present war and they have
been found useful in Belgium for drag
ging light artillery. These dogs lind
previously drawn small milk carts and
other peaceful dog wagons. Dogs are
also being employed by British, French
and German troops in aiding to make
searches for the wounded. They also
have been found useful on outposts
and picket post* at night to give warn
ings against surprise. In this country
new occupations are also being found
for dogs, and one of these is as an aid
to the police in tracking criminals and
in helping to catch criminals by chas
ing them and tripping them up.
Dogs are in use in the Russian anny
for sentry duty on outposts. Every
Russian regiment has thirty ol' these
dogs, whose service has been found to
be of extraordinary value in outpost
work at night. An outpost, its own
sentinels doing their regular tours of
duty and their watchfulness supple
mented by that of these dogs, is ns
nearly secure against, surprise or
against being "rushed" as is possible.
The march of an army by day and its
rest by night depend on security
against surprise, and these Russian
soldier dogs are alert sentinels. They
maj- not be always awake and may
not always walk their post in a mili
tary manner, but if they sleep it is a
light and watchful sleep. No strange
sound escapes them. No strange foot
step eau approach. Their sense of
smell is so keen that they give warn
ing of the approach of a foe before his
stealthy footsteps may be heard.

Mrs. Jay McGee, of Steph

nine (9) years, I suffered with
womanly trouble. I had ter
rible headaches, and pains in
my back, etc. It seemed as if
I would die, I suffered so. At
last, I decided to try Cardui,
the woman's tonic, and it
helped mc right away. The
full treatment not only helped
me, but it cured me."
Cardui helps women in time
of greatest need, because it
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
