The Democrat. Published every Thursday by GEORGE A ROBERT M. CRAWFORD, Entered at the Post Office, Mineral Point, Wis., as second class matter. Subscription, 91.25 per year In Advance THURSDAY. APRIL 16, 1908. TII EM I L VVAL KEE JOL RN AL, which has for the last twenty-five years contributed in a very large measure towards making life in Wis consin well worth living, celebrated its silver jubilee last Saturday; and its issue for that occasion is a very valu able publication. Prominent among its articles of great worth is its editor ial review of its life work during a quarter of a century; while the letters from many of its warm friends present a wonderful array of brignt and able thoughts well expressed in words. The following are a few expressions contained in the many Kind letters to Editor Nieman: Grover Cleveland: I especially congratulate you upon your adherence to the path of conscientious duty, as it has been given you to see it, in your journalistic work, and upon the rare compensation you have thus earned for your labor. William F. Vilas: The Journal has stood on the right side of public questions; its appeals have gone to sound sense, civic virtue and patriot ism; it has been no organ of special interests; its public aims have been guided by the just democratic princi ple of the welfare of the masses. Some glorious battles have seen its banner in the forefront; some mighty blows its reeling adversaries have known. Neal Brown: The Journal has op posed silly government paternalism over the industry and the social and political life of the people, it has opposed protective tariffs, subsides and all kinds of discriminating taxes on the same grounds that it has op posed a primary election law which practically incorporated political par ties, making them not merely volun tary associations of citizens with the right to determine when, how and where candidates for public offices should be nominated and party poli cies declared, but vesting in the state control over these fundamental rights and activities. J. E. Dodge harks back to the Jour nal’s great achievment in the state treasury cases, and says; A more mas terly handling of all the weapons of controversy can hardly be found in journalistic annals. The result, on which the people of Wisconsin can congratulate themselves, was to put an end to the pernicious practice and to so sot the seal of popular disap proval upon it that years must elapse before even the daring of cupidity can again attempt it. Ellis 13. Usher: The Journal has won because of its pluck, principle and enterprise, and f know this, per haps, more surely than most other people. Rev. James Slidell: 1 am sure, Mr. Editor, that you have saved many a girl and boy from some fatal indiscre tion by your wise advise. That alone is worth much, as you may have saved a soul from ruin. Lawrence W. Halsey: While The Journal is largely an independent pa per, untrammeled, it has its leanings, and I hope that in the next campaign it will be found advocating the elec tion of the Great Commoner, William Jennings Bryan. RESPONSIBLE FOR CRIME. Our Own Neglect To Uplift Causes Much Depravity. “To the trained observer of life it is obvious that criminals are not on the whole to blame for their vicious career. “For twenty-five years, as a police reporter in New York, I saw all the wickedness of depraved human na ture,” says Jacob Rlis in the May Delineator. “1 saw a seemingly unending succession of young ras cals -so the police had stamped them and the record on the station-house blotter bore them out —going from the slums through the wicket-gate of the Tombs to the prison and to the gal lows. and it was a sight to discourage any one whose horizon was limited by our earth-life. The chill of it abides with me yet. But behind it all I made out also what it was that had depraved their poor human nature, and that the responsibility lay with us who let it be, whose neglect of the neighbor that had fallen among thieves was to blame for it all. The world is no worse than we make it. j We also can make it good.” J r /rom Alcohol Since May, 1906, Ayer’s Sar saparilla has been entirely free from alcohol. If you are in poor health, weak, pale, nerv ous, ask your doctor about tak ing this non-alcoholic tonic and alterative. If he has a better medicine, take his. Get the best always. This is our advice. A We publish our formulas We banish alcohol W from our medicines JS C& O 'We urge you to ijet o c °re£ our A sluggish liver means a coated tongue, a bad breath, and constipated bowels. The question is, “ What is the best thing to do under such circumstances?” Ask your doctor if this is not a good answer: a Take laxative doses of Ayer’s Pills.” Mw-KUde by the J. C. Ayer Cos..

Sam Jackson's wife was to be burled in the afternoon, and the bereaved col ored man was shaking with grief over the coffin, when a comely young darky maiden stepped over to his side and said tenderly; “Don’t, Mistah Jackson; yo’ mus’ try an’ bear up.

Leisure is regarded as so notabte a characteristic of Tasmania that it bears the nickname of “the Laud of Lots of Time” or"the Land of Sleep a Lot,” while its inhabitants are called “Tassies” and “Jam Eaters,” the latter being an al lusion to the island's great fruit farms. “Cornstalks,” as our general and sport ing appellation of Australians, applies in strictness to the people of New South Wales only on account of their height and slimness. Because Victoria is noted for its gum trees Victorians are required to answer to the inelegant sobriquet of “Gumsuckers,” while South Australians are “Crow Eaters.” in refer ence to the use of crows as food In times of drought. The large banana plantations of Queensland give its peo ple the name of “Banana Eaters.” and the hot and arid wastes of West Aus tralia explain the term “Sand Gophers." —London Chronicle.
