CINCINNATI, 0.. Pec. 10.—’The Promised Land is a short Way from Nipe Mile, 0.. which is close to Ame lia, in Clermount county. The inhabitants thereof came from Russia to America. They found work In sweatshops and homes In Clnclu* natl tenements. Their children sick* ened. Their playground wfls in the dark rooms, on the crowded sidewalks and on the fire escape landings. Eggs were 50 cents a dozen and kosher beef 18 cents a pound. “No,” said they one to another, “this cannot* b* rtw> Promised Land. In Russia, at least, we had fleshpots, and the air was free." And they turned their faces to the east, and Joseph Khoodln, a tailor, was sent forth as a messenger to search out the land, even as the wan dering Israelites sent, forth to spy out tha laud of Canaan 340** years ago. and to report upon whether the land was fat or lean, and whether there Was wood therein. And Khoodln, who is of the tribe or Levi, searched througn Clermont county, and he brought back word that surely it must be the Promised Land, for It floweth with milk and honey. And thither they Journeyed from their sweatshops and their tenements. HUS BURNING ITCHING, DISFIGURED Cracked and Swollen. Could Not Sleep. For 2 Years Nobody Could Cure His Eczema.

My hands were disfigured and swollen, and troubled me ■o that I could not sleep. They were cracked aad when the small sores broke a white matter would come out.

Joseph Ehoodin, the pioneer of the back-to-the-eoil wanderers, began five years ago with 10 acres that were mortgaged and now has IVo jgires that a r e uniiiortgaged. As far as the vision can reach from the front doorstep of Joseph Ehoodin ! lie the fat acres of the former sweat shop workers —the pretssers. foe tail ors. the bastera and the finishers who fared lorth in search of the promised land ufter they had discovered that it did not lie iu Ceutrai-ave. tene ments. .Most of th£m nave started with S2OO and .i mortgage, borrowing money from the Jewish Agricultural Aid society.

The other day there was announced the Incorporation of the Ezf& Building Sr Loan association. And that was i the first oflcutl record of the success of the sweatsnop men who became farmers. It meant that they had gone into the banking business. And they gave a Biblical name to their bunk. Tney called it the Ezra Building ft loan association, after the Prophet Ezra, who led the chil dren of Israel back to Uro soil from Babylon. And now. that they have well es j tabllshed themselves in the material things, they are going to build a I temple In the center of their posses sions as a memorial to Him who led them into toe Promised lAnd.

Suppose a ship in a storm at sea were under the con trol of one of our city councils, with Us whole string of committees, do you suppose that it would ever get Into port?'* Mr. White believes that the initia tive, referendum and recall are neces sary checks upon the commissioner to make them responsible to the people. “The necessity for these wa* appar ent," he asserted, “when the Houston, lex., commission became tyrannical, and so they have been introduced by the cities which have since taken up this form of government, in Des Moines, la.; Spokane, Wash.; Grand Junction, Col., and leaven worth, Kan."
