' May Lorain Co. W. C. T. U. be unmistakably awake and ready to main tain its position In our "Grand WhiteRit bon Army." Mns, A: B. Peaslet, Rec. Sec'y. Strong Drink Useless. It has been, demonstrated by eminent chemists, that alcohol does not contain food as anv iiutricloiis elements that build un wasted tlsue of the body, and Is decided to be a deadly poison by phy sicians nnd chemists of unquestionable ability. Explorers in tho Arctic regions, on the deserts of A f.-iea and the malar! ous linidc's of the tonics, have been de cided In their opinions, based on obser vatlon, that alcoholic drinks are not only useless, but dangerously evil in their ef fects; and tills is corroberated by statis tics of old life Insurance companies, which has led them to reject .risks on lives of habitual drinkers on the strictly busi ness principle of making money, which U a very .sensitive test; and It Is true that more men are frozen to death while drunk, thnii otherwise. Then, it being true, nast any doubt, that alcohol as - a Wverage Is not only useless, but ilamng. Ine to health and fearful In its moral tendencies, .let us prohibit Its Introduc tion and sale, t Some drinkerj may say we are trying to abridge his rfghU by shutting off his supply. I suppose a man has a legal right to eat or drink what he likes, if he can get it ; but no man has a moral right, r right as a cltizep, to do anything that lessens his ability at a producer, of coin forts of life for hit family, no right to in capacitate himself by tho use of strong drink from doing his pnrt nt a citizen, to add to the advancement of Christian civ ilization, and thereby promote the hapl ness of those around him.' No person eanvold the responsibility of producing something needful and benaflolaL - The rum-seller must see why the honest pro ducers of the necessaries and comforts of life have reason to complain that he not only doet not produce anything useful, but helps to make paupers, criminals, Imbeciles and lunatics for the honest la borer to support. Brewers and distillers say tlicy make market for a vast amount ot grain, hops, etc., and employ a large number of men. So much the worse, for the grain Is worse than wasted, which would feed millions of starving; human beings,' and the labor It diverted from channels of useful indus try. They complain of being deprived of their property by breaking up. their business; as well might the counterfeiter complain when hit plates, diet and bo gut money are destroyed, or the burglar and gambler when their tools are confis cated. They say the people want what they make and offer; true, and some Ig norant people buy tainted beef, imma ture veal, unhealthy vegetables and stale bread, because they do not under stand the laws of health ; but our author ities very wisely punish the man who offers such for sale. The liquor fraternity, Infidels though they generally are, quote the Bible as au thority for making and using ardent spirits. If they would only read the whole Bible thoroughly, reverently, seeking to know what it teaches on this subject, they would find that the princi ple, "Do unto others as ye would that they should do unto you" or your son, would forever deter a man from putting the bottle to his neighbor's mouth. Or, "if eating meat mnketh my brother sin, I will ent no more meat." This principle adapted, would forever shut the mouths of those who say they are not to deny themselves the luxury of drink because others, not so strong, abuse the privi lege. They would find the terrible ana themas hurled at the man who gives strong drink to his brother or the awful doom pronounced upon the drunkard, and that its teachings are persuasions and golden promises to those who cense to do evil and learn to do good ; to the victims of the ruin-seller, every in ducement to reform, but to those who for greed persist in luring the unwary to destruction, a terrible retribution. The effort to regulate the sale of strong drink and allow it to continue is, and al ways must bt'r failure, lis anyone who witnessed the liquor trial in the mayor's courts last week, must admit, for no mini who is so liwt to nil Hcnic of right as to engage In the s.-iliHiii im-lness at this ago of the world, can lie regulated, unless ho be locked up. Tho true Inwardness of the liquor dens, the perjury and mor al degradation that was brought to light on that occasion, terrible as it was, Is doubtless but a shadow, compared with the dram-shop of the large cities, where murders, robberlcn and conspiracies of every conceivable sort are planned. How, then, can men, In favor of law and or der, good citizens, Christian men,' en courage the continuance by license, or regulation by tax, a business employing nearly seventy thousand men, to disburse tills vile stuffy wliogrow meatier and meaner, so tlutt If evuu they do get what they deserve, a place In the penitentiary, they would be a disgrace to its waifs and kimntes..

The Evolution uf a CranR. ' Some cranks revolve and other evolve. This crank hat done both. , He bat revolv ed in his mind certain facts, and evolved from them certain fancies and conclu sions. " ' " " " Of course, coming from a crank; those are of no value; but it may be of interest as a matter of curiosity. One of these fancies is that the politi cians of both old parties in our country occupy themselves chiefly In that anima ted game, "Simon Says Thumbs Up." The Simon In the case Is-usually the liquor dealor. ' At another time It seems to this crank as If the two old parties wero playing at see-saw. The "teeter" rests on a barrel marked "Old iiourlton," or "XXX Alo." On one end Is the Republican party, and on the other end is the Democratic party, each trying to see which Is the heavier But In the middle stands the saloon keep er with One foot on one side of the barrel and the other foot on tho other side, and by leaning his weight to this side or that he determines all the ups and downs. These are fancies the crank has evolv. ed. Now for a few of tbe facts. ; . . - The first fact it that, within the .last four years, eleven Republican and eight Democratic State Legislatures have re fused even to allow the people to vote on the question of saloons or no saloons. - When the crank went to school he used to be taught that this Is a 'country of tht people, for the people, by the people. Our State Legislator! dont teem to think that tills applies when the saloon Is at stake. May be not. They ought to know. , Another fact.lt that while the Federal Congress has within the last few years appointed Commissions to Investigate In to the tariff question, the sliver questhm, the grasshopper plague, the pneumonia epidemic among cattle, the hog cholora, and many slinlliar Commission, it has year after year, at the crack of the liquor dealer's whip, voted down the bill to cre ate a Commission which should report on the effects that the liquor traffic bat upon society. And the funny thing It. that It doesnt make any difference whether It It a Democratic or Republican Congress, the bill Is always tnowed nnder, Just the same.- . ' The crank hat an Idea that the effects of the liquor traffic are almost as Import. ant to the country as the effects of hog cholera, cattle pneumonia, and Kansas grasshoppers. . Congress, It seems, doesn't agree with him. The crank can't help thatv He would If he could. ' v '. Another fact It this, that we have been having pretty hard timet. One million men, they tU us, were a abort, time ago out of work in this country v . Think pf that I The crank saw mllle closing, fac tories shutting up, merchants falling; but he looVed invaiu to tee the saloons shut ting up.
