Cruelty to Animals.
There should be in every well reg
ulated town a society for the pre
vention of cruelty to animals. Our
town is badly in need of such a so
ciety. There is ample law on the stat
ute books for the prevention of such
,. -.cruelty, but what is everybody's bus
iness is nobody's business, and as a
consequence there are numerous vio
lations cf this law which are never

streets which is wholly unfit for work,
and these animals should either be.
killed, or their owners should be com
pelled to have them treated by a
competent veterinarian, where there
is hope of permanent improvement.
Stock is frequently brought to town
and is hitched in some lot, where it
is forced to remain sometimes an en
tire day and far into the night with
out a drop of water, or a bite to eat.
During the heated term an animal
thus treated suffers untold ~gony, and
the people responsible therefore
should be punished. In many towns
and cities in the country, members of
the society for the prevention of cru
elty to animals look out for such cases
and when they are found they have
the animals taken to a feed stable,
where they are fed and watered at
the owner's expense, and he is warn

We are told by a responsible citi
zen, that during the progress of the
Haggard meeting he saw a mule
which was hitched four hours at a
time, without food or water, and yet
the owner professed to be deeply ex
ercised over the effect which he was
deriving from the meeting. In order
for religion to be genuine, it must be
consistent, and a man who would
treat his beast of burden in this
manner cannot have the grace of God
in his heart. Moreover, we have the
words of Holy Writ to bear out the
above statement "that a merciful
man is merciful to his beast," and
the converse of this proposition must
be equally true, that if he is not mer
ciful to his beast, he is not a merci
ful man; and what- is man without
The Only Honest Way.
In the midst of hurly burly of
noise and fury of random talk and
intemperate recrimination over the
proposed "beer and light wine"
amendment to the Volstead Act, it is
a relief and satisfaction to discover
a sane discussion of the subject born
of straight thinking. Such a discus- ?
sion is-provided by the Dall?s^Tex- '
as) Morning News, published in a
community where the amendment
seems to have become an issue in the
congressional campaign. And the nub
of what The Morning News says is
There are some people who believe
that it would be well to permit the
manufacture and sale of beer and
light wines. But if their belief is to
command respectful consideration it
must be presented in the form of a
proposal to amend or recast the
Eighteenth Amendment. Only those
who adopted it are competent so to
amend or fashion the Volstead Act
so as to permit the sale of beer and
wnies without violating the oath
which its members take. A proposal
so to amend the constitution would
be entitled to respectful considera
tion even from those who would be
sternly opposed to amend the Vol
stead Act so as to permit the sale of
beer or light wines il not entitled to
respectful consideration because it is
a proposal to have congress do some
thing which the constitution forbids
This is clear and right to the point.
It is an absolutely correct interpreta
tion of the situation, and it ought to
have wide currency. It is the inter
pretation The Free Press endeavor
ed to set forth in its columns some
time ago when the American Federa
tion of Labor heads made their pro
nouncement in favor of an alterna
tion of the Volstead Act. Such an
amendment by congress would be a
violation of public trust, a defiance
of public-mandate and a legislative
lie. For as long as beer and light
wines are in fact intoxicating-and
nobody can deny that thousands have
become drunk by imbibing them-no
statutory fiction can make them other

otherwise would be puerile stultifi
If mild intoxicants are to be re
instated in the United, States, let the
reinstatement be done decently, hon
estly and in the way provided by the
fundamental law. If the "wets" try
to get what they want by proceeding
in a proper manner they will at leas t
be entitled, as the Morning News
says, "to respectful consideration,"
from which their present tactics bar
Anti-Semitism in Colleges.
In a recent letter on the problem
>f anti-Semitism in the colleges of
;he country, President Lowell, of
Harvard University, recently said:
'First ,the spread of anti-Semitism is
fraught with very grave perils for
the community. Second, * the anti
Semitic feeling among the students
There is no doubt that this prob
lem on anti-Semitism is colleges is
of far less importance to the Jews
than to the colleges.
In a very timely editorial on this
subject, The New York American
A college whose methods of in
struction are incapable of eradicat
ing a stupid injustice had better go
out of business. A college that even

Buttermilk Hens Lead.
For February the most notable
change in the Southern California
Farm Bureau egg-laying contest was
the raising of the dried milk albumen
pen from sixth to third place. The
fresh buttermilk pen and the dried
skim-milk pen still hold first and sec
ond places, respectively The highest
production for the month was made
by the dried milk albumen pen, with
a production of 58.32 pei* cent. The
standing of the pens to date shows
that the buttermilk pen has produced
40.22 per bird, the dried skim-milk
pen 35.95 eggs per bird; dried milk
albumen pen. 33.24 eggs per bird, the
pen receiving semi-solid diluted 1 to
2 31.16, the check pen 31, the pen
receiving semisolid diluted 1 to 25
30.66 and the two pens receiving lac
teintand semisolid, each diluted 1 to
25, in addition to the ration fed in the
check pen, have both produced slight
ly over 28 eggs per bird. The work
has not advanced far enough to war
rant the drawing of any conclusions.

There's a flavor of Hashimura
Togo in a political announcement
carried by the Edgefield Advertiser,
which, omitting the signature, is as
"To relieve my solicitous and
other expectant friends, that I will
not be in the coming primary elec
tion, may I not say, the interest man
ifested in my behalf is very pleasing.
"Popular with the people at one
time and scored victory over many
worthy " opponents which success I
hold in high memory. Since that time
conditions political have wrought in
kind, phases in which I am not in ac
cord and incompatible, and which
would inevitably preclude me from
the enjoyment in that field of politi
cal glory. I shall not speak of those
conditions, which exist still, but if
continued will prove disastrously to
what the people expect."-The State.
