break it down in the courts it v% l
mako prohibition so offensive and th

Hardest Fight Ahead.
"Advised by able counsol, led b
Elihu Root, they hope to make cond

so flagrant that the people of th

Calling to the South.
"The Prohibition forces are calling
now to the South to finish the job.
Here, where Prohibitton was cradled,
is the place to set the pace and blaze
the way for the balanco of the nation
and the world.
"This campaign does not propose to
interfere with Individuals; it is wag
ing no war on tobacco; it is driving
only toward enforcement of the law
already on the statute booku and the
enactment of others that may be
necessary to reinforce them.
"It is intended primarily as a cam
paign of education. Literature to
counteract the propaganda of the wets

"World Prohibition by 1930 is thi
aim of the dry forces.
"Routed from America, many of thi
distillers and brewers are planning ti

Sapphires and Diamonds.
The sapphire is I)robably not as val
unble as the diamond, roughly sronk
ing, although comparison is difficult,
owing to taste in color, and to the dif
fering values as size increases. For
instance, the price of a diamond rises
in proportion to the square of its
weight, a two-carat stone bringing four
thies ao i much as one of one carat.
