1 LIQUOR AT THE CONVENTIONS.
Ij Guarding against the possibility of either one of the old parties
1 1 taking up the side of liquor, a committee with Senator Capper, Sena-
Jl tor Shcppard'and Congressman Randall in command, has sent the
i: Standard-Examiner the following message, addressed "To the Citi-
I Ij zens of America" : , ..
! One year of prohibition has brought more laughter to
i children and more smiles to women than any other legis-
u It has turned almshouses and breweries into factories,
I I jails into corncribs, and brought their inmates forward into
JL Hi the great industrial army.
I t If has added untold billions to the nation's wealth,
I HI transferred money from the saloon tills to savings banks and
S I li newly erected homes.
BH The Eighteenth Amendment has increased farm and
f - - city values, quickencd industry and brought to the United
States the greatest era of prosperity ever known.
p The pro liquor element is doing its utmost to repeal the
'M Volstead Act. -
1$$ ! It would nullify the Eighteenth Amendment, which
' would mean the overthrow of national prohibition and it?
' The liquor minority proposes to attain its ends by c'ap-
!! ; turing the national conventions of the political parties.
, ' i' The drv majority, as demonstrated by ratification m
i1!' - fortv-five states, MUST CONTROL these conventions.
!r;j; wc ask you to get every state, district, and local I or-
1 i ganization, of whatever kind within your reach, to ADOL 1
V !' RESOLUTIONS substantially as follows:
I "Be it resolved, that avc hereby authorize our names
, to be used at each and every political convention to be held
M in 1920, notifying the leaders of all parties that we will
1 support' such parties as specifically endorse, by platform
j!: declaration the Eighteenth Amendment as interpreted by
' , the Volstead act, or some measure equally effective ; and
nominate candidates unequivocally to its enforcement."
i Although the prohibition leaders are uneasy and not a few ot
j i them are apprehensive, we are of the opinion that prohibition is not
J in danger and that neither party will venture to undo the legisla-
j tion which has made America more nearly sober than any other na
tion formerly given over to strong drink.
I' G-OMPERS AND ALLEN IN DEBATE.
' i On Friday night in Carnegie hall, Samuel Gompers, president of
the Federation df Labor, and Governor Allen of Kansas, debated
' the relations of capital and labor, and the right to strike and its,
V legitimacv as regards the effect on the public.
I The audience was made up of the partisan supporters of the i
I two sides and, as a result, the cheers and boos were governed by
i 1 the prejudices of the auditors.
AVhenthe speakers concluded their argument, they stood lrre
soncilable and as far apart as when they began and that today is.
j the attitude of the two forcescapital and labor.
But everywhere throughout this country there is a hope ex-;
! j pressed that the conflict may be settled in some other manner than
by the rule of might.
1 One of the elements making for a bad condition is the distrust!
which exists. Labor union leaders view the big interests with sus-
picion, declaring that at no time have the men of great wealth lived
up to the awards of arbitration. On the other hand the capitalists
, ! assert the unions do not abide by their agreements.
! , The union men refuse to place their destiny wholly in the keep-
ing of those who assume to legislate for the people, as they distrust
1 , the men who make politics a .business and through politics become
I ' the dictators of public policy. But what solution is there, if the
f t people as a whole do not make the decision as to where the rights
of labor leave off and those of capital begin?
Inasmuch as nearly all the progress in the condition of labor in
this country has" been brought about by labor unions, it is evident
that to destroy unionism would be a national calamity, unless there
be substituted for that power something equally beneficial to labor.
V7hat is that substitute? So far there has been no satisfying answer
to that ques'tsion.

It is an arresting; title the Bible

i The God of heaven and the King of
Glory comes down and offers to be a
man's guide. Ho must want us to go

ha'e us lose the way. Ho seoms to
pause In his task of universe building
and world control, and turn aside to'
; where a pilgrim on life's long road hasj
t lost the way, and say: "Let me guide

Where is the man or woman who
doe's not need guidance? Who of us
knows this strange road which none
of us as yet has traveled, but along
which, soon or late, we .ill must jour

the dim distance to whore the skyline

! Not a mile of the long road but is fa

road leads, and no night Is so dark
and no, storm so blinding as to make

No wilderness can puzzle Him, and
no march can tire him. He is familiar

Hy GIIjSOX GARDNER
The Republican convention of 190S
wa3 fixed for the nomination of Will
lam Howard Taft. Roosevelt h.ad
The- convention met to register
this pre-determlnatlon. .
Roosevelt had started the cam
paign for Taft delegates six months
before the convention met, and by
the first of June the work was done
The only doubt was among a few
cynical politicians, who persisted it?
disbelieving that Roosevelt meant
what he said, and some members
of Mr. Taft's family, who were
openly skeptical up to the last min
ute. ! The cynical politicians and the
Taft relatives refused to believe that
Roosevelt intendod to retire.
How the convention was received
by the Taft family is given by Jo
seph Eucklln Bishop, who was pres
ent. In a memorandum made at the
time, he said:
"1 remained with tho president till
about 4 p. m., when 1 went to the

in which he was sitting with his

chair at his desk in the center of
the room, while he sat at one side
in a group of friends. Bulletins were
being received constantly from tho
convention by telegraph and tele
phone. These were brought from
the outer office by Charlie Taft and
handed to his mother, who read
"Word soon came that the nora
natlng speeches had all been made,
and the convention would proceed to

from the little company, and a brief
period of breathless eagerness fol

a bulletin which ho handed to his
mother. Her face went deathly white,
and with visible effort, she read (I

the room. Mrs. Taft 'sat white as

of his chair and whistled softly.
"Charlie entered with another
bulletin, which 'his mother read; 'A

about tho hall, and the uproar con

"That awful sllenco continued for
several minutes, which seemed end

Preparing Baby's Milk
Unless milk la certified or pasteur

the germs of tuberculosis, scarlet fev
er, tonsllltls, dlptherla, typhoid fev
er and other communicable diseases.
Milk may be easily pasteurized In tho
Mix the milk well and pour It Into
the clean feeding bottles, which should
bo stoppered with clean cotton. Take
a wire basket that will hold the six
or seven bottles used for 24 hours and
place tho basket containing the bottles
In a tin bucket of cold water, filled
to a point a llttlo above tho level of
the milk. Heat tho water and allow it
to boll for flvo minutes. Set it aside
for 10 minutes and then run cold water1
nto the bucket until the milk Is
cooled. Then milk should then be
put In tho chest and kept at a tempera
ture of not above 50 degrees.
If the milk Is to be mixed with
other Ingredients, such as oatmeal,
barley water, rice water or sugar,
these should bo added before pas
teurization. Keep the milk cool until just before
tlmo to feed the baby, and then heat
It to blood-heat by placing the bottle
in warm water. Never test the tem
perature of the milk by placing the
nipple In tho mouth beforo giving it to
the baby. Let a few drops of the milk
fall on tho back of your hand instead.
Everything that comes in contact
with the baby's food should be clean.
Always keep the hands clean Tho
hands should be washed with hot
water, soap, nail-brush and dried with
a clean towel before touching any
thing that goes inio the baby's mouth.
As soon as the baby completes nurs
ing pour out any milk which may be
loft in the bottle and fill it with cold
water. When ready to prepare the
milk for the next 24-hour feeding wash
the bottles thoroughly with hot soap
suds and a bottle brush and then rinse
and boll the bottles for 15 minutes.
Only nipples that can be kept clean
easily should be used. They should
be turned Inside out., scrubbed,

is based on an article published In

United States Bureau of Fisheries.

THOUGHTS.OF THE FUTURE.
To keep my mind from becoming
posslmlstlc about the future I wrote a
notp to Madam Gordon, asking her to
soncl all the baby materials and little
baby clothes that wero locked up In
my codar chest. And not willing to
wait even until they came, I started
out on a purchasing expedition in the
llttlo town where I was stopping. I
found many patterns, somo delicate
materials, and came home and spent
tho clay quite happily in making the lit
Sometimes I wonder how many
ideals, how many aspirations and
prayers a woman sews Into tho first
baby clothes she makes. How many
times sho projects hor Imagination
Into the future and "sees all tho won
ders that will be."
God pity the child that comes into
this world without this heritage of
mother's prayers, of mother's hopes
and mother's wonderful, wonderful
love. I could not find words strong
enough to apply to myself for that
moment of aberration when I said I
did not want my baby, and for a mo
ment I trembled for fear some pun
ishment would be meted out to mo be
cause I voiced such a sentiment of
selfishness and fear.
Alice Is Going Home.

lullaby, and I could see she was very
much pleased to think I had at last

"Tom has written me a letter saying
he does not feel quite up to the mark
lately, and this morning he did not

assured me, however, that there Is no
occasion for me to return home, but
I can see through all his letter that
he wants me, and I am going, dear."
"Of course, you are going," I an

quickly, "of my taking little Bobbie

Unless one Is absolutely sure of the
purity of the drinking water It is a
good Idea to boll the water.
Many people object to boiled water
on the ground of the taste being, made
flat by tho process.
In order to kill any germs lurking
In the water it should be boiled for
15 minutes in an uncovered kettle.
The Impurities are driven off by tho
heat and escape through the steam.
Air coming in contact with the wa-
ter reo.xldlzes It and prevents If from
having tho flat taste.
Beware of well and spring water
that has not been analyzed.

"Then I am going right over and IH
make the arrangements," said Alico.
"Poor Ruth," was my exclamation. IH
"I feel sorry for her."
"J think your sympathy is wasted,"
sajd Alice, briskly.
"But think, my dear, sho has never
been soparatcd from that child since H
it was born, and she knows she is H
sending it to her husband, who loft f
hor for the woman he since married. If
She wouldn't bo human if tho thought H
of her child being caressed by that H
other woman would not tear her heart-
strings. She will be perfectly miser- jH
able nil the time that child is gone."
All Will Be Jealous.
"Yes," said Alice with a sigh. "They flRB
will all be perfectly miserable. Ruth . SSS
will be jealous of Hclon, jealous of t If'
the caresses that her boy will give to
Helen. Helen will be jealous of tho if yI-
child every time Its father gives him '(iff--
any of his time, and Bobbie, poor Bob- j '
ble, I don't envy his feelings. He will li "
be very conscious every moment that
ho spends with littlo Bobbie he will HA
not dare to lavish his affection upon nE.
tho boy when Helen Is around for fear
of hurting her feelings. Oh! What if.
creatures convention and tradition jlLl
make of all of us." W-'-
"I think it will do them all good,"
continued Alice. "Ruth will find out V
that her selfish affection for the chll-
drcn lost her her husband. Helen ,m-"'-will
discover that a man can never
forget the woman who was the mother .
of his children. And Bobbie, howeyer
much he loves Helen now, and I think 'Bp
he loves her devotedly, will yearn rwL"
more than ever for his children. Again i m
we get back, Katherine, to the same I C
old story that when a man and a M K!
woman marry they should cleave to i 1
each other 'until death do us part!' jR
"I am still of my old idea, though.

have to be discussed and the duties E
of each would be laid down very care- i i
fully. All other materialistic details fl g
should be talked over and decided be- 1.H
