Never has "King Alcohol" had
such good reason to tremble as today.
Hoys and girls who twenty-five
years ag shouted, "Tremble, King
Alcohol, we shall grow up!" and
whose heads, hearts, hands and feel
have been trained for temperance

and the L. T. L., through the untiring
efforts of the W. C. T. U. have proceeded
to grow up, and are suiting

standing in front of a saloon. "Well,
Harold, this is a queer place for von

me to look for my father, but 1 will
never have a boy looking in a saloon
