A Good Measure.
Among the Important bills to receive
attention at the present session of
Congress which convened Monday is
tho Sheppnrd-Kenyon Bill, preventing
shipments of liquor being made into
"dry" states. In Justlco to the states
that have provided for prohibition
within their borders Bnd, In no uncer
tain tones, have declared themselves
ngainBt tho liquor traffic, it is Just and
right that such n law should be on
actod. It Is a hard fight to abolish
liquor when whi'key concerns are al
lowed to ship unlimited quantities of
their products into "dry" states and
nro unrestricted in so doing by law.
With a law prohibiting such shipments
"dry" states would be greatly benefit
ted and the problem of bringing the
bootlegger to justice solved.
Congress Convenes.
Congress convened Monday noon.
It is not likely thnt much of impor
tance will he done for several weeks
for on the eve of a change of adminis
tration, an army of office-seekers and
lobbyists are on hand to press their
claims for jobs after March 4th. Only
measures which have been debated be
fore both houses and aro ready to re
ceive final notion will be considered.
After the inauguration of President
elect Wilson March 4th and the con
vening of tho oxtra session of Congress
. which will probably occur about April
15th, the big doin's will begin and we
tnnv expect all sorts of stunts to be
pulled off for at least four years.
The Liberal Hardware Co. is now

Sees After 28 Years Darkness.
The Monday's Oklahoma!! gives an
account ol tho strange restoration of
vision to G. G. Rupert, an aged minis
ter, who had been blind for 28 years.
From tho account wo are lead to
! beliorc that tho Mr. Rupert referred
to was formerly a resident of this sec
tloi. and well known to many of the
pioneers here. He was a Bevonth Day
Advcntist and at one time conducted a
meeting In thu Presbyterian church
here, He resided near Liberal, Kan
sas, The strange story of the restora
tion of vision is as follows,
"Last month nhllo sitting in my
room with my grandson, the little fel
low, in an ('(Tort to have some fun at
the expense, of his grandfather, shot a
strip of twisted paper at mo with a
rubber and, the missile striking me
squarely in my right eyit, It came
with such force that I thought It had
burst tho eyeball. Hot bandages wore
applied to relieve the pain and as the
wound began to heal, I was surprised
one morning to una that I coulu see
my hand before my eye, and a litllo
light with It, although I eiuld not dls-
ii-tii anything plainly. For tho ten
following days my sight in this eye
improved steadily, and while my other
eye probably will remain blind for
Hver, I now can read ten-point type to
R'liiio extent, and primer typo easily,
mid with tho aid of n magnifying glass
I can discern the outline of many small
ohjf ets. Largo objects such as a build
ing or a trolley car I now can sen plain
ly When I loit my vision my beard
was black and when I first beheld It
gray upon tho return of my eyoilght,
I was strongly reminded of Rip Van
Winkle."

If anyone doubts that flowers and

in great variety and a profusely as In
any country, a visit to the country
homo of Mr. and Mrs, Henry Block,

have convinced them of the fallacy of
'heir belief. From time to timu Mrs
Block brought beautiful bouquets to
tho Herald editor and other Beaver
friends and from hor vivid descriptions
of her veritable Garden of Eden we
were convinced that It must bo ex
qulsito Indeed but wc were never able
to visit her botanical garden much as
we should have liked to do so. How
evor, this week we wero afforded a
view of thn beautiful garden from a
photograph taken in tho heart of sum
mer when all plant lifo was at Its best
and which had been retouched in natu
ral colors by Mr. Block For beauty
and luxuriance of growth tho scene
cannot bo excelled. One who does not
know the possibilities of Beaver coun
ty looking upon it would bo led to In
quire If It were not n California flow

it was a product of the semi-arid west.
Mrs. Block understands all tho fine
points of gardening and floriculture
and to horofforts is duo tho resplen

Go To Church.
Staying away from church willi
many men Is largely a matter of habit,
suporludticcd by tho belief that It Is a
good deal of trouble to got ready ti
attend services. Men are not indiffer
ent to tho value of churches in their
community as a moral force. Thry
know in a way that tho ministers In
churgo are very capable, and possessed
of the Intelligence requircd,la-pJJparjv, .
an entertaining discourse, but a grrd Q
many of thorn are not disposed to put
themselves out to the extent to accom
pany their wives or children to any nf
theso edifices. If the church Is good,
and it is; if It Is an essential moral
force, then it should have moru than
the mere passive support of the men.
If father does not go to church the boy
is likely to reaton when the time comes
for him to bo governed by choice In
stead of discipline that there is not
very much in It, and ho, too, will show
a preference for the Sunday paper.
Church attendance does not signify
that men who go must become ardent,
militant religionists. It does not bind
them to nny creed or to any program
of dally practice It Is an acknowl
edgement that tho church la useful,
and a proof of a wish to accord to the
minister and his co-workers forjgood at
least some measure of encouragement.
And theso aro tho seasons why more
mon in ovory city and town should go.
