The Distillers' Association is send
Ing out a new argument against pro
hibition. It says that prohibition
"ruined the grape industry in Kansas"
It claims that in the eighties this in
dustry was over $200,000 per year, and
it is estimated at less than $25,000
Tihe grape industry wasn't the only
industry ruined by prohibition.
There :was the mint industry. Pro
hibition killed the mint julep, hence
no more demand for mint except in
a few homes where they made -mint
sauce for spring-l,amb dressing.
hen there was the blow to the egg
industry. Men no longer use eggs for
eggnog, since the eggnog departed.
When prihibition camte the liens had I
been doing their share in their free
way to keel) the egg indiustry alive,
and yoil could get eggs for eight Cents
a dozen. Since prohibition hit. the
egg induistry you iive to pay two
Cents apiece for eggs. Prohibition
took the life out of the liens. They do
not seem to have anything to cackle
abollI silce the saloon leIt us.
A 1an1 over inl the easternll part of
the State used to make rou lelte
wheels. li e was a titne cabiniet-imlaker
and the wheels he turned ou1t l'or roil
lette an(1 other gaies of elhance were
ioilited *%wit ivory and mother-of
peal . Prohiblli tionl killed that in dus
tl v also.
InllWt PrOhlilition has killed about
every induistry ill Kansas except the
raising of, wheatl and Corni and alfalfa
an1d fruit an11d live stock: potatoes and
VVens Ild eabages and "gardeni sass";
chickens and ducks and geese, and
horse5s and mu11es.
It blisted 1ii) Maly of our most
proinient gaiblers, pimralyzed the
beer-gardenis, and absolutely killed
tile Bartenders' Union.
Prohibition has left very little of
Kansas except. the growing crops in
her fields, the stock in her stock-pens,
tile dreary round of work, work, work,
work in her -factories an(i stores and
other ilidustries. It has left us little
