I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
As we have something better than others, and something better than usual, I feel-warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people.
To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company issued and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (1916) last year, than any other of the more than 260 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire record of existence, excepting eight, ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 1916.
The Prudential Issued and Revived in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual
dividends, further reducing the premiums. The policy is plain with no catches. The policy pro
vides without cost, that i? the holder becomes physically disabled, he is excused from paying the
premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend
off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than
you have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see you.

O Beautiful For Patriot's Dream.
0 beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.
O beautiful for glorious tale
Of liberating strife,
When valiantly, for man's avail,
Men lavished precious life !
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!
O beautiful for patriot's dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
God shed His grace on thee.
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

"By AH Means Let Us Have
It is to be hoped that Congress
will enact immediately a nation
wide prohibitory iaw. ? have urged
this measure for years, but now,
with the nation at war, with every
possible source of food production
certain to be strained to the utmost,
we have neither men nor materials
to waste in continuing an evil
agency which the oldest nations of
Europe have abolished. Forgetting,
if we can, the moral aspects of this
question, if must be clear to thought
ful patriotic Americans that if we
expect to escape a serious shortage
of food Btuffs, including grains for
livestock, we must turn our re
sources into proper channels.
Millions of bushels of grain are
now used annually in breweries and
distilleries. It would seem to be a
poor sort of patriotism that would
permit a business so destructive as
the liquor business to continue using
the labor of more than 100,000
men-not counting saloonists and
retail dealers-while the Nation's
best blood goes forth to war.
By all means let us have National
prohihibition-and after the war
let us keep it. If America's enter
ing this great tragedy achieved
nothing more than this-the wiping
out of the liquor business-then
those who fall will not have given
their lives in vain.-Governor Ar
thur Capper of Kansas.
