Two Letters That Every True
Friend of His Country Should
Write at Once.
The "Kenyon Sheppard, Webb
McCumber Interstate Liquor Ship
ment Bill" is to be considered by our
present Congress. This bill, if enact-
, ed, promises to put a stop to the ship
ment of intoxicating liquors into pro
hibition territory one of the most
neinous ana pernicious inconsisten
cies practiced in the United States
- to-day. The liquor men regard this
as the most dangerous measure ever
aimed at the liquor traffic, and are
compassing sea and Land to defeat it.
Every friend of good government,
morality, temperance and decency
should do his best to have it passed.
Let every good citizen write to his
United States Senator and Congress
men, strongly urging the passage of
tnisuui. ijei) id De aone at once.
Now and now only, is the accepted
The other letter should go directly
to President-elect Woodrow-Wilson,
but as the way.is blocked by a Roman
Catholic private secretary, the next
best thing to do is to W. J. Bryan,
Lincoln, Neb., asking him to use his
influence with President-elect Wilson
to prevent the appointment of a Ro
man Catholic to the position of Post
Master General in his cabinet, and to
the position of private secretary to
the President of the United States.
Mr. Wilson's present private secreta
ry, Joseph P. Tumulty, is a Roman
Catholic, encroachment will be allow
ed to reach Mr. Wilson's eye. Mrs.
Wilson has also selected a Roman
Catholic for her private secretary,
and through her the Pope and the
American hierarchy will know every
thing that transpires at Washington
and iu-the white house. Thousands
of letters are being written by Cath
olics to Woodrow Wilson urging him
to appoint Joseph P. Tumulty his pri
vate secretary during his presidential
term and John T. McGraw, Post Mas
ter General of the United States.
McGraw is a lioman Catholic politi
cian of West 'Virginia, and his ap
pointment aSrPost Master General
would mean d'very serious menace to
freedom of the press, for an attempt
would surely be made to exclude from
the mails every publication unfriend
ly to the Roman Catholic hierarchy,
or that dares to criticise its methods.
The Catholics would be willing to
sacrifice every other plum in -sight
provided they could land these two.
It behooves every true patriot to do
everything in his power to prevent
these appointments from being made.
As letters directed to Wils m would
get no further than to his Roman
Catholic secretay, and as W. J. Bryan
is the most influential man in the
Democratic ranks to-day the proper
thing to do is to urge him by strictly
personal letters to use his strongest
mlluence with Woodrow Wilson to
present these two appointments
Mr, Wilson owes his eleation to the
Presidency directly to ori man, and
that man is W. J. Bryan. For this
reason Mr. Bryan ought to be able to
wield sufficient influence over him to
prevent these two dangerous appoint
ments from being made.
Rum and Romanism are the two
blackest CiOuds now on our political
horizon, and our patriotic citizens
should uwake to the dangers of the
situation. Again I would say in con
clusion, write those letters at once.

Eight or ten years ago he was pastor

Grider arose from his seat, looked the
dentist in the ej e, and said: "Forget
for one minute that I am a minister."
The denist immediately had a hurry
call to pull a tooth.
Best Cough Medicine for Children.

in praise of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy'' writes Mrs. Lida Dewey,
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "I have used
it for years both for my children and

cases of croup." Chamberlain's Cough

which is of great importance when a

gret exceedingly to give him up.
Quiet, unassuming with a kindly word
for all, a truly-christian minister and,
upright gentlemen, his loss will be
severely felt in Lancaster, and we-can

our loss, and that Bro. Bush and ex

They met on Bowmer Heights and
commenced talking, the wife becom-"

In default of bond he was sent to jail.
His Stomach Troubles Over.
Mr. Dyspeptic, would you not like

were over, that you could eat any kind
of food you desired without injury?
That may seem so unlikely to you
that you do not even hope for an end

assure you that it is not altogether
impossible. If others can be cured
permanently, and thousands have
been, why not you? John R. Barker,
of Battle Creek, Mich., is one of them.
He says, "I was troubled with heart
burn, indigestion, and liver complaint
until I used Chamberlain's Tablets,
then my trouble was over." Sold b
