Iowa Pastor in Favor of Saloons \
New Hampton, la., Dec. 13—Rev.
Mr. Frltchel, pastor of the Lutheran,
church in this city, has created quite
a commotion both in his church and
outside in signing a petition for sa
loons. In relation to this he says:
"I am not favoring the misuse of
intcxicating beverages. It seems to
me if I should have refused to sign
the petition I would have assisted
the prohibition movement, that I con
scientiously cannot do. It is my per
sonal conviction that prohibition is
against personal liberty; that it does
not eliminate the misuse of intoxicant
placing very frequently cue evil in
place of the other, and that prohibi
tion has no foundation in scripture.
Comp. Col. 2:16; St. John 2, i seg.:
St. Mark 14:33 seg., and others. I
shall with all my ability assist in
any temperance movement which ha
for its object to abolish drunkenness
and lamentable conditions we find in
a manner which, according to my un
derstanding, is in conformity with
true religion."

sent, agreed to act in harmony with

From Experience of Blackfoot People).
We are fortunate indeed to be able
to profit by the experience of our
neighbors. The public utterances of
Blackfoot residents on the following
subject will interest and benefit thou
sands of our readers. Read this state
ment. No better proof cami be had.
Carl Anderson, Grovelandi Addition,
R. F. D. No. 1, Blackfoot, Idaho, says
Doan's Kidney Pills are by far the
best kidney medicine I knew of, I
have taken them off and on for ten
years and they always give me
relief from pain and weakness in my
back. About eight or ten years ago
when living in Utah, 1 had a serious
attack of kidney trouble, brought on
by the alkali water In that part of th
country. My bladder was Inflamed,
I knew that if something were not
done, the disease would get the bet
ter of me. Doan's Kidney Pills re
lieved mytrouble and convinced ma
of their merits.''
On the Road to Success.
If the Eagle Bend Placer Mining
Co., Ltd., does not prove ai success
it will be no 1 fault of the promotors,
they are working with untiring ze.al
and are meeting with great encourage
ment. They know they have a> good
thing and it does not take long to con
vince the most skeptic. They also use
thorough business principles in placln
this company on the market. Being
firm believers In the use cf printers,
ink they are doing considerable judi
cious advertising. The plans of the
mill are completed and) are quite an
elaborate affair. They are to the
hands of the secretary and can be
seen by any one who wishes. The
mill will have a capacity of 300 tons
of concentrates a day, which is ex
pected to pay a i dividend of from 10O
per cent to 500 per cent.
We are also informed that they are
meeting with good success in dispos
ing of stock, several shares being
sold the last week. They also have
a capitalist in Massachusetts ready ten
take several thousand dtollars worth
of stock as scorn as he convinces him
self that the gold is there, and that
seems easy enough to do. They have
no salaried officers, and no money
will be spent until enough is raised
to complete the mill. In a few days
they will have several agemts on the
road selling stock and expect to have
the required amount raised by the
opening of spring.
