BECHUAN ALAND CHIEFTAIN
No name signed to th? historically
glot Petition is more pathetic than
that of Khama, the chief of Bechua
naland, who begged that strong drink
be kept from his people. Chief Khama
has been called "Alfred the Great"
of South America, and in Wilson S.
Naylor's "Daybreak in the Dark Con
tinent" the following story of the
stand taken by him on the liquor
question is told-the tale being cred
ited to Mrs. Wyndham Knight:
"Chief Khama's position on the li
quor question puts to shame the v*eak
duplicity of leaders and peoples in ?
lands which for a much longer time !]
have been inheritors of the gospel.
The white man's drink is prohibited 1
from crossing the boundaries of i
Bechuanaland. Native beer is also i
abolished. These prohibitive laws are !i
actively effective. They are rigidly
enforced, and severe penalties are -|
visited upn offenders. j
"The white traders forced Khama i
to strenuous legislation-a bit of <
statecraft worthy the publicity it has ?
received. Liquor dealers elsewhere i
are credited with pertinacity. Khama 'i
found that his opponents lived up to,J
the reputations of the fraternity, j <
Warning followed warning. Still the j'
law was violated. Finally, tried be- '<?
yond further endurance, Government,
crystallized in the form of Khama's ?
figure, took control and launched a :j
phillippic. J. D. Hepburn, who acted j
as interpreter, gives the ultimatum \\
as he heard Khama pronounce it: j<
"I Dread the White ManV Drink." ; i
" 'Take everything that you have.
Take all that is yours and go. I am
trying to lead my people to act ac
cording to that Word of God which
we have received from you white peo
ple, and you show them an example ,1
of wickedness such as we never knew. j<
You, the people of the Word of God! :<
Go! take your cattle and leave myjl
town, and never come back again!'?1
"On the ground of old friendship
one dealer pleaded for pity. Khama
flashed back: 'Friendship! You know
better than anyone how I hate this
drink. Don't talk to me about friend
ship. You are my worst enemy. I had
a right to expect that you would up
hold my laws, and you bring in the y
stuff for others to break them. You !?
ask for pity and you show me no pity, c
\To; I have had enoug" of such pity. T
it is my duty to have pity on my peo
ple, over whom God has placed me,
ind I am going to show them pity, to- t
iay. That is my duty to God.'' And t
:he drink went. ^
"To the British administration he ?
wrote : 'I dread the white man's drink (
more than the assegais of the Mata- \
oele, which kill men's bodies and is i
quickly over; but drink puts devils in- .
:o men and destroys their souls and
;heir bodies forever. Its wounds nev
?r heal. I pray your honor never to j
ask me to open even a little door to ?
:he drink.' 1
"The struggle over the native beer ^
making and drinking aroused deep ar ^
;agonism. 'At one time,' said Khama, i
I thought there was nothing but t
leath in front of me. I told them they
:ould kill me, but they could not con- (
a.uer me.' "

Impossible for a Man Who
Drinks to be a Scout.
"A soldierly looking man came up
to me one night and brought out his
discharge certificates, showing that
he had served with me in South Af
rica," says Lieutenant-General Baden
Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts, in
"Scouting for Boys." "He said he
could get no work, and he was starv-4
ing. Every man's hand was against
him, apparently, because he was a
soldier. My nose and eyes told me in
a moment another tale, and what was
the real cause of his being in distress.
"A ?stale smell of tobacco and beer
hung about his clothes, his finger tips
ivere yellow with cigaret stains, he
had even taken some kind of scented
lozenge to try and hide the whiskey
smell on his breath. No wonder no
Dody would employ him or give him
nore money to drink with, for that
?vas all he would do with the money
if he got it.
"Very much of the poverty and dis
:ress is brought about by men getting
;nto the habit of wasting their time
ind money on drink. And a great deal
)f crime, and also of idleness, and
?ven madness, is due to the same hab
t of drinking too much. Liquor-that
s, beer or spirits-is not all neces
sary to make a man strong and well.
3uite the contrary. The old saying,
Strong drink makes weak men,' is
i very true one.
"it would be simply impossibly for
i man v/ho drinks to be a scout. Keep
'rom liquor from the very first, and
nake up your mind to have nothing
;o do with it. Water, tea, or cbffee are
mite good enough drinks for quench
ng your thirst, or, if it is very hot,
emonade or a squeeze of lemon are
nuch better refreshment."

Boston's Morality Squad Not
Needed Under Prohibition.
What a dry Fourth meant to the
:ity of Boston, Mass., is easily seen
>y a comparison of figures. A year
igo the arrests on the national holi
iay for drunkenness included 198
nen and 19 women. This year ihere
vere only seven men and two women
aken into custody. On July 4, 1918,
he number of arrests for all causes
vas 369, this year 27. The value of
prohibition was further demonstrated
m a recent Sunday when at Nantas
cet Beach, near Boston, not one ar
rest was made.
