I hirty-third Annual Convention of the National Hody legins Its Session Today at Hartford, Conn. W E L CO m i; i:xr E X I) E I) To Visiting Members of the World's Organization jsy rresHient Mevens in Jier Opening Address. Ifa'-tfnrri. Conn.. Oct. 2fl. The thirty third annual convt-ntion of the Xational Woman's Christian Temperance union opened here today. Mrs. Lillian M. N. Stevens, of Pnrtlaml, Jle., presided and more than 4 SO delegates from all parts of The United States were present, in- iudingt some from Austria, Japan, Eng land, (ireeee and other countries. The address of President Lillian M. X. ftevens follows: "We warmly welcome to this thirty third convention of the National Wo men's Christian Temperance union our Tvhite ribbon comrades from other lands and other climes. We know you will .ho an inspiring presence in our conven tion and we humbly trust that In some degree, in some way, the convention may be helpful to you. Our Star Span gled Banner is dearer to us today be cause mingled with its folds are the fiags of other countries countries close ly bound to ours in the comradeship of sacred work. "The Women's Christian Temperance union is organized in ten thousand lo calities In our nation; and in three hun dred thousand homes the white ribbon is worn over hearts loyal and true. "Probably no member of this conven tion is fully satisfied with the results of the year's work for the advancement of moral measures, and yet no former year has marked greater progress. The people more widely than ever before know what alcohol is. We can hardly enumerate the many ways in which the knowledse has been acquired. Scien tific research, religious conviction and business interests are bringinar forth reasons for total abstinence which com pel attention and action. The reitera tion that alcohol is a poison and not a food has forced the study of the liquor question upon many who heretofore have been unmindful, if not altogether unbelieving, and the careful unpreju diced student of the question can not fail to be in sympathy with fhe W. C. T. T". in its' manifold efforts to have the neople understand what alcohol is and does. "The liquor trade is a mighty monop oly compared -with which every other monopoly fades Into insignificance: but the bulwarks of the trade are constant ly being weakened. A widespread call for a new sort of morality in public of ficials has been heard in many states; and in the nation at large the idea has been emphasized that large corporations and men of greatest wealth are not ex empt from the requirements of the peo ple's laws 1n the people's courts. The liquor trade Is not only sustained by avarice but by an appetite more in- If to HfC(cst Be Sure , You Get SANITAS Toasted Cora Flakes hi III n ' y HWilillllll'll I n 1 11 T WM lllli I nlilillllll'll ( X ihl).

Notwithstanding all this, the saloon more than ever before. Is re garded with disfavor by respectable people. "Sooner or later every well-meaning person who gives any attention what ever to the liquor problem, if he is cap able of sane reasoning, will come to see the fallacy and the wickedness of any form of license as applied to the sale of liquor for beverage purposes. "A candid review and fair compari son of conditions before and after th3 abolition of the liquor canteen make a good showing as a whole in favor of the present system. The oft repeated statements, that low dives and drinking places develop in the vicinity of mili tary poets because of the abolishment of liquor selling in the canteen, is dis proved on authority of such officers as Colonel Ray of Kentucky, and Major Nave of California and by the honest investigators of the real conditions. "During the last year there has been unusual interest displayed concerning the internal revenue system, and it is to be hoped that this interest will strengthen and deepen until the day of national prohibition, when in every state the manufacture and sale of alco holic beverages is outlawed: and then there can be no liquor revenue with which to enrich the coffers of Uncle Sam's treasury. 'Oeneral satisfaction seems to pre vail over the passage by congress of the denaturized alcohol bill. It could hardly be otherwise, for most temper ance people would be glad to have the revenue tax .removed from all intoxicat ing liquors and to have such liquors denaturized. "The bill prohibiting the sale of li quor in all government buildings, parlo. reservations and ships met with unex pected favor from some sources, and there is a reasonable hope that it will pass at the next session of congress. " We have reason to be glad that the public demand for national legislation bearing upon the character and qual ities of foods sold ir market has se cured the passage of the pure food bill. Twenty-five states now have ,'ood inspection laws, and since the developments of the last year the peo ple have been and are fully aroused to the importance of having adequate national legislation, and they welcome the new congressional law- which cer tainly is needed to check fraudulent and unwholesome practices. "The attitude of the Women s Chris tian Temperance union on the question of Mormonism is well understood, not only by all members and friends of the organization, but by the public at large. The Smoot investigation has furnished fruit to justify a movement that will make polygamy an offense against rhe United States; an offense that can be dealt with In the United States courts hence it is plainly our duty to favor and to work for a na tional constitutional amendment. "No one capable of reading and un derstanding need be ignorant of the dangerous character of cocaine and absinthe, and we should be alert to prevent their sale by those who, for financial gain, do not hesitate to dis pense these poisons. These dealers are near relatives to the liquor sellers in fact, they are often one and the same. "If all the money wasted for strong drink were spent to provide good homes and home comforts the child labor problem would much more easily be solved. This is true to a great extent of the labor problem in its broader sense. "This has been a year of remark able "W. C. T. TJ. activity. In every state there has been a victory along some line of march. "Woman was never more truly a homekeeper than she Is today, but her concept of the sphere of home has broadened irameastireably. There is a recognized link between the good home and civic righteousness, good schools, good churches and good busi ness houses, and there are manifold in dications that in the movement to se cure woman's influence in government, and 'In the tangled business of the world' there is an accelerated progress." Lynched by Cowboys. Roswell, N. M., Oct. 28. "Slab" Bitts, a negro.who was run out of town two weeks ago after serving 90 days for vio lation of the Edmunds act, was lyncheJ by cowboys at Toyah, Tex. The acces sory, a white woman, followed the negro to Toyah, and they were living together. The cowboys went in the night and placed a rope around the neck of the negro. He was aragged to death and then hanged. Everybody reads The Stats Journal. NORTON GROWING FAST. A City With 20.000 Population Is Pre dicted for It. Norton, Kan., Oct. 26. Out on the western prairies half way between Kansas City and Denver the thriving little city of Norton, Kansas, shows ex cellent prospects of making a city of twenty thousand people. At present five large brick store buildings, a large brick bank building for the new Norton Na tional bank, the third bank of the town, and the new brick plant of the Star Bottling works, a building 60x40, two stories high, are all under course of con struction. Plans for at least a dozen other brick business houses are already in the hands of the architects. Among other new industries that are figuring on locating here are a large wholesale produce company, a washing machine factory, a cigar factory, a candy factory, a wholesale commission house, a stock foo4 . concern, a paint factory, a packing house, and numerous branch concerns. 5 It is almost certain that both the Gulf. Flainville & .irthern, and the Omsha & Denver short line will build through Norton next year, giving the town four main lines of railway and excellent distributing .facilities. The town already has a population of ?3.orif) and will more than double in the next six months. Parkview addition, covering 120 acres southeast of town, was entirely sold out last month, and what two months ago was a pasture is rapidly becoming one of the most thick ly populated suburbs of the town. Three other additions covering 100 to 200 acres each, south and west of the city, will be closed out before January 1. Next year will see two new school buildings, a ne.w opera house, city hall, and miles of new cement sidewalk. The tireless enterprise of the town in the last two years has added the follow ing industries and investments business interest of the city storage and electric light plant, Farmers' Mill & Elevator Co., Alfalfa - Product Co.. $30,000; Pressed Brick plant, . $20,000; foundry, $15,000; Star Bottling $7,000; Norton Ice Cream factory, Home laundry, $5,000; and nu smaller concerns. to the : Cold $50,000; $50,000; Norton Norton "Works, $5,000; merous Catarrh of tfcs Stomach A Pleasant, Simple, But Safe and Effectual Cure for It. COSTS NOTHING TO TRY. Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered the next thing to incurable. The usual symptoms are a full or bloat ing sensation after eating, accom panied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs and difficult breathing, headaches, fickle ap petite, nervousness and a general played out, languid feeling. There is often a foul taste in. the mouth, coated tongue and if the in terior of the stomach could be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed condi tion. The cure for this common and obsti nate trouble is found in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment and Irritate the delicate mucous surfaces of the stomach. To secure a prompt and healthy diyastion is the one necessary thing to do and when normal digestion is secured the catarrhal condition will have disap peared. According to Dr. Harlanson, the saf est and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet, composed of Dias tase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, olden Seal and fruit acids. These tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets and not being a patent medicine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy ap petite and thorough digestion wiil fol low their regular use after meals. Mr. R. S. Workman, Chicago, Ills., writes: "Catarrh is a local condition resulting from a neglected cold in the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose becomes inflamed and tne poisonous discharge therefrom passing backward into the throat reaches the stomach, thus producing catarrh of the stomach. Medical authorities pre scribed for me for three years for ca tarrh of stomach without cure, but to day I am the happiest of men after using only one box of Stuart's Dyspep sia Tablets. I cannot find appropriate words to express my good feeling, l have found flesh, appetite and sound res from their use." Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the safest preparation as well as the sim plest and most convenient remedy for any form of indigestion, Catarrh of stomach, biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn ana bloating alter meals.
