A Ion of Capl. Alloa leiltn'ly Kills sn Mrs.
On Sunday evening last, during the
storm, a bolt of lightning struck the
residence of Capt. Allen, who lives
one mile west of St Cloud Springs, in
stantly killing his son, a lad about 12
yean old, and also prostrating both
Mr. Allen and his wife. The bolt
struck the cone of the house near a
flue and divided, one prong passing
west out through the roof the other
passing cast, betwen root and ceiling
to a porch, striking a post near whicb
the boy waa standing, taking a drink
of water. He was killed lnstantly,and
Mrs. Allen, who was washing dishes,
only about three feet from him was
stunned into Insensibility. Mr. Allen
was also knocked down, but soon re
covered. The three were the only oc
cupant! of the porch. Mrs. Allen was
still in a critical condition when last
heard from. Tbe dead boy bad several
wounds ou tbe left breast, leaving the
impression that the electric fluid pass
ed into bis system with tbe water be
was drinking and passed out through
his breast, directly from the stomach.
The dead boy had been lying down on
a pallet In the bouse, and feeling
thirsty, bad arisen, and gone to the
porch for water. Had he delayed a
moment, no doubt his life would have
been spared, ills remains were buried
at Todd's Chapel, on Sunday.
Mr. Allen came here about two years
ago, from Carrollton, where he had
oeen City Marshal, and purchased tbe
farm where the fatal stroke occurred.
He has never been satisfied, and bad
recently sold out with tbe intention of
going elsewhere. Fatal accidents
from lightning seem to be on the In
crease. E. T. Dorton has moved to Kansas
City from this place. Sorry to see him

But 1 am a prohibitionist. I believe
in fotbiding the manufacture of alco

be alloweu to sell them at all for pri
vate gain. It Is all settled in my mind
by this fact that a large number of
men, who would otherwise be good and
useiui memoers or society, are ruined
by these liquors. These men are Doa-
seesed of weak wills aud dominant ap
petites. They cannot resist the temp
tation if it Is in their way. Tbelr only
safety is in complete separation from
all intoxicants. To save these men, we
must either cotidne them or else we
must banish the temptation out of so
ciety. There are many objections to
to the first or these alternatives. We
are thus shut up to the latter.

friends of temperance do not agree as

The most seiious drawback to the
caiiBh of true temperance is the tn
temiierauce of ltd advocates. The evils
of drink are so great and so many tbat
they snem to. oruu .tbnaa wbo give
them earnest attention. Theu they
mix it up with woman's suffrage and
other abominations, ho that a man dis
likes to be found in their oompany.
I believe lint universal prohibition
is tbe moat eliicient expedient for less
eulug the evils of drink, as they can
not be entirely eradicated. Sincerely
