It was declared by tho Hoosevolt supportors a few weeks ago
that Massachusetts would decide the Republican contest, if Mr.
Taft should lose, nnd then Maryland, and, finally, Ohio; and
tho President himself seems to havo been willing that his homo
people-should bo tho arbiters. Of course ho is by no menns defeated
jet, but owing to tho gains of tho ox-President, a stronger enndidnto
mny bo sought and the President's votes be switched to him in tho
hopo of checking tho third torm tide.
Hut then Teddy says, "I'll be tho compromise candidate," and
Teddy "is a wIisoMiorso."
The old Prophet dlscovored death in the pot a single instance.
Tho now prophets of health havo discovered death in the cup in tho
public drinking cup, nnd the cup, used In common, must go. Death
is to bo outlawed.
And who wonders nt tho discovery? The consumptive, with his
hollow chest and deep guttural cough, drinks from tho gourd, tho cup
or tho dipper that the othor members of the family uso, ho wanders
to the crossroads storo and tho dipper provided for the customers is
free to him, or, on his wny to the city for treatment, in the train,
ho goes to the water-cooler in tho car and uses tho common glass, and
there, hs in tho home and the store, tin; lifo of everyone who touches
tho glass with his lips is endangered by particles of sputum contain
ing germs of the diseaso from his teeth, lips or mustache.
And it is not only consumption, the white plague, that is to be
gunrded against. Any one of a dozen diseases may bo communicated
in the sumo manner. The doctors reporting to the State Board of
Health last year listed 33,000 cases of venereal diseases in Kentucky
alone. The Hlnck Pluguo is, therefore, in our midst, sometimes moro
loathsome oven than consumption, and it is not impossible to com
municate it in the same way.
And then, to say nothing of the possibility of contracting dis
ease, who relishes the thought of drinking after anyone nnd everyone
ho chances to see and meet the foul breath, the unclean lips, tho
dirty teeth, the drooping mustache, smeared with tobacco juice
Wo welcomeeveryone should welcome the banishing of the
public drinking cup by the act of the Legislature which" is to be en

assembly of tho Northern Presbyter

Louisville, the general assembly of
tho Southcfti Procbytcriou Church
at Urlstol, Tenn., and tho Southern

Tho matter of chief debate In the
Methodist body has been tho amuse
ment clause, of tho discipline. Tho
movement for abolishing this clauso
lost by a small majority. Tho dis
cussions In the Presbyterian gather
