A New Year Prayer.,
I ask not wealth, but power to take
And use the things 1 have aright;
Not years, but wisdom that shall make
My life a profit and delight
I ask not that for me the plan
Of good and ill be set aside;
But that the common lot of man
Be nobly borne, and glorified.
I know I may not always keep
My steps in places green and sweet,
Nor find the pathway of the deep
A place of safety for my feet;
But pray, that when the tempter's
breath 1 .
. Shall fiercely sweep my way about,
I make not shipwreck of my faith
In the unbottomed sea of doubt;
And that, though it be mine to know
How hard the stoniest pillow seems,
Good angels still may come and go
About th i places of my dreams.
I do not ask for love below,
That friends shall never be estranged;
But for the power of loving, so
My heart may keep its youth un
Prohibition Will Not Increase
A. C. Bane.
In every wet and dry campaign
the liquor men cover the bulletin
boards with the statement that tax
es will be increased if prohibition
is adopted. They mail to the voters
circular letters containing the same
It does not concern the liquor
men in the least that the statement
is untrue, for it often works, in
alarming men who are opposed to
the saloons, into voting to retain
The liquor men never go into de
tails and tell the name of the city,
county or ?t?te where a loss of li
quor revenue increased taxes, for
the simple reason that such places
do not exist.
We challenge the liquor men to
truthfully name one state, county or
city in this nation that ever raised
its tax rate because it lost its liquor
In some wet cities, most of the
revenue has gone to play politics,
and no municipal improvements
have been made for years. When
such cities have voted dry, the peo
ple begin to wake up, become en
terprising, want a clean city, and
they immediately demand an in
crease in taxes for much needed im
provements, such as schools, streets,
sewers and a water system that have
been needed for years, but not sup
plied by the wet administration.
The loss in saloon revenue is
easily made tip by two facts:
First: It costs less to govern a
dry city than it does a wet city and
less revenue is needed.
Second. Closing the saloons leads
to a saving in money, increased im
provements, enlarged business, in
creased property values, so that!
there is au increased value of prop-,
erty to be assessed, which keeps tax [
rates low.
We knew a wet city oflu0,u00'
population and a dry city of 5U,UUU,
population, sid'? by side, i#nly al
street between, but the tax rat* in j
the wet city was il.Tu per hundred i
and the tax rate in me dry city was j
90 cents per hundred.
In 1S80 the tax rate in Kansas,
was 5.? mills on the dollar aad tue ;
lix rate of Nebraska was 3 mills;!
botii were ^et. Since I8b;2 Kansas
has bad prohibition and tu U?14- its
tax rate was 1.2 mills; ?ince 1882 j
Nebraska has bad saloons and her j
tax rate in 1914 was 7.8 mills.
The tax rate in div Atlanta, (-ra.,
which is larger thau Toiedo, Ohio,
and nearly as large as Colambas,
Ohio, is ?7.50 per thousand, ?viiile
the tax rate in wet Columbus is
?13.50 per thousand, and in wet To
ledo is $14 per thousand.

Feeding Frost-bitten Corn and
A reader wishes to know if oorn
and cane (sorghum) are dangerous
to feed tcj lifestock after they have
been frost-bitten.
As applies to corn at least, the
danger, if any exists, is in the condi
tion which develops after the freez
ing. If it is cut promptly-which
should be done if it is green be
fore the frost and is killed or seri
ously affected, by the frost-and
properly cured, so that neither de
composition nor mold develops, the
cured corn will make good feed and
will probably contain about the
same feeding value as if cut and
cured just before the frost. If the)
frost is severe and the corn green
and if it is allowed to stand and
die and dry out after the frost, be
fore it is cut, the feeding value will
probably be considerably lessened,
but if cut at once there will be
only slight if any loss in feeding
As to the sorghum, there is prob
ably some more danger of the frost
producing changes or causing the
formation of injurious sub
stances in the stalks. If such dan
ger exists, it will probably be much
greater if the sorghum is allowed
to stand for some time after the
frost. If cut at once, we do not
think the conditions will be dif
ferent from those stated as to corn.
If the sorghum is only partially
killed by the frost and is thou al
li wed to stand for some time, we
would advise caution in feeding it
until it has been thoroughly cured
or made into hay. While green
sorghum, that has been stunted or
checked in its growth, especially as
with tho necond growth during dry
weather, sometimes develops prus
sic acid, a deadly poison, we have
not heard of poisoning with cured
sorghum hay and if the frosted sor
ghum is promptly cut and cured
we feel certain there is very little
danger if any at all, in feeding it.

Once more the Blessed Day has come
To sooth the hearts of Christendom:
Like some cool hand that's pressed
Upon the fevered pulse of pain,
The Christmas Spirit comes again
To quiet our unrest.
Forgot awhile are grief and loss,
The brooding cares that irk and cross
From farthest sea to sea,
From northern lands of ice and snow
To where the rose and jasmine bloom
The Holy Mystery.
Its influence benign outspreads;
On bended knees, with low-bowed heads
With myrrh and spices sweet,
Fit recognition we would make,
Our alabaster boxes break
In tribute at His feet.
O holy, blessed Christmas-time,
Of perfumed conser, pealing chime,
Tny fairest gifts, we pray,
In boundless measures, full and free,

So sore their need today!
The old and frail, forget them not;
And those about whose liv?? ari
So much of hope and prayer- .
Our little ones, the coming race
Bestow on them thy tenderest grace
To grow in wisdom fair!
Sweet Yule-tide, of thy fulness bring
Peace unto hearts now sorrowing, '
And unto great and small,
To man, bird, beast-to all thatlive
Thy richest benediction give,
Thy happiness to all!
