pearance of being evil, and we are

Itesist the I>cvil, James 4:7-10:
The only way to overcome the devil
or to drive him out of our hearts or
out of the community is to resist him
with all our powers. It" we yield to
him at all he will press us all the
harder. It" we give him an inch, he
will take an ell.
Itiml I lie Kvil One, ltev. 20:1-3:
The saloon is one of the chief mani
festations of Satan in the world. Al
lowed to run at large, this old ser
pent will bite and poison the whole
community. The only safety is in
overcoming and casting it out.
llt'scue tlio Lost, Luke 7:3C-!?0:
All over this country there are thou
sands of men and women who are
lost and have sunk down deep into
sin because of the saloon. The Sa
viour alone can save them. It is our
duty as well as our privilege to tell
them of this Saviour, "who is mighty
to save."
Kducutc tlio People, I'rov. 23:17
23: The campaigns of education that
have been conducted through the pul
pit, the religious press, the Sunday
schools, the public schools, the tem
perance organizations and in many
other ways has educated the people
in many parts of the country until
the saloon has been driven out. They
must be kept up with the slogan ring
ing loud and clear, "The Saloon Must
Go."
Warn tin? People, 1 Cor. C: 9, 10:
People ought to be made to see that
all the sins mentioned in these verses
either have their origin in the saloon,
or are greatly aggravated by it. Po
lice records of all cities show that
with the driving out of the saloon,
crime and sin materially uecrease;
and in like proportion increase when
the saloons have been allowed to re
turn, its train of evils have come
flocking back.
The Saloon Power ami IJow to Over
throw It, Heb. 2:1-17: The saloon
power is the greatest power for evil
in the world, and to overcome it the
greatest power for good must be used,
and that is the power of God. But
God intends that His power shall be
exercised through Ilis people. They
must not paironaze the saloon. They
must do all they can to keep others
away from it. They must use all

their influence and their votes to see
that it is closed. A curse is pro
nounced (v. 15) upon him who gives
his neighbor drink. He who will al
low another to give him drink, when
he can prevent it, is just as guilty,
as if lie had given it himself.
Why Is the Saloon Hard to Over
throw? Because it is run by the
devil.
How Call We Help to Overthrow
the Saloon? The best thing, after
prayer to God, that can be done just
now is to write to your congressmen,
urging them to- adopt war-time pro
hibition. If adopted now, the saloon
will never come back in this country.
Why Do We Need National I'io
liihition ? llecause every part of the
country needs prohibition. No part
of it can have complete prohibition as
long as any other part has the sa
loon. We need it just now as one
of the greatest aids for winning the
great war for righteousness into
which we have been fotfPed.
