You can't drown cares with drink;

There are two kinds of saloon
keepers the proprietors of saloons
and those who keep saloons in ex- j
istence by voting to license them.
I had rather be the lowest drunk
ard than the rumseller who gives
him liquor in his cups, and rather
that man than the church member
who gives him license. Joseph
We have a law to prohibit per
sons from spreading snares in our
rivers for the wholesale destruc

The license-voting church mem
ber and the liquor-selling sinner

Loyal Temperance Legion last
evening in Temperance Hall was
.greatly enjoyed by every one pres

.zealous, untiring superintendent of
the Legion, was there, of course,
and, with her able assistants, never
-allowed any time to drag.
If the young men of our city
who spend so much of their time
in the saloons could only be made
to realize that they could have a
good time in the temperance hall,
we believe some of them, at least,
would make a change.
