There is no better argument for
state-wido prohibition than the im
proved condition of those counties of
the state which already have prohibi
tion. It has been claimed time and
again in newspapers and elsewhere
that the moral life of those comni-ni
ties has been greatly improved since
the voting out of whiskey from them
and these claims have never been dis
vitted. The conditions speak for them
selves and no other argument is need

mental life must be better and cer

The Advertiser does not believe
that. a prohibition campaign conduct

paigns in which appeals to sentiment
and emotion predominated, will 'be
most effective. Facts as to the injury
which whiskey does to the consumer
himself and to those in whom he is
interested are more impressive upon
the mind of tie man who is in doubt.
Tie example being lea(i by noted ath
letes has done more for the temper
ance cause in the last few years than
all other agencies combined. Let
those examples be made the subject
of campaign arguments.

Tihe victory is due to the superior

that he secured a good part of the I
