A Saloon and What It Will Do for
Our County and All Who Patron
ize it, or a Saloon Keeper's
To all whom it may concern, with a gen
eral invitation to the people of Audubon
Know ye, that having just opened a
licensed shop for the sale of liquors in
Audubon County, I embrace this oppor
tunity of informing you that I have com
menced the business of making drunk
ards, paupers and beggars, for the indus
trious and respectable of the community
to support. I will, for a small sum, under
take, on short notice, and with the great
est expedition, to prepare victims for the
poor house, lunatic asylum, prisons and
gallows. I shall deal in familiar spirits,
which invite men to riot, robbery and
bloodshed, and by so doing diminish the
comforts, increase the expenses, and en
danger the welfare of the community. 1
will furnish an article suited to the taste,
which will increase the number of fatul
accidents, multiply distressing diseases,
and render those comparatively harmless,
incurable. I will deal in drugs which
will deprive some of life, many of reason,
most of property an'l all of peace which
will cause fathers to become iiendu, will
cause wives to become widows, children
to become orphans and all to become great
sufferers. I will cause the rising gener
ation to grow up in ignorance and prove
a nuisance to the County and nation. I
will cause mothers to forget their helpless
children and priceless virtue no longer to
remember its value. I will ondeavor to
corrupt the ministers of the Gospel, delile
he purity of the churches, cause spiritual
temporal, and eternal death. If any per
son should be so impertinent as to ask
why I liave the audacity to bring such
accumulated misery upon a compar
atively liaDpy people, my honest reply
is: The people of Audubon County lias
given me the right to demolish the char
acter, destroy the health, shorten tlie
lives, ruin the souls of all who honor me,
(or dishonor me), with their patronage.
Come one, come all. 1 pledge myself to do
all I herein promise. Those who wish any
of the evils above specified brought upon
themselves and their dearest friends are
requested to meet me at my "bar," where
I will, for a few cents, furnish them with
the certain means of doing so. A saloon
informs one and all that there will be
empty pockets made here, fighters, gam
blers, forgers, drunkards and murderers
made here, widows and orphans made
here, jail birds made here, candidates
for the penitentiary made here, drunk
ards graves dug here, victims for the
gallows and candidates for Hell made
hete, because the people signed my peti
tion for my saloon. And the law allows it
and the court awards my right to do so.
Furthermore, here is the manufactory,
where boys, upon whose faces tlie image
of God is stamped, are changed, as if by
magic, by drinking whiskey at ten cents
a dram, into the image of devils. It will
change good sober young men and hus
bands into bad ones, produce bloated
faces, bloodshot eyes, and lead them sure
ly on the road to hell.

An east-bound gale left in its trail
Beheaded stacks of grain,

I went early one Sabbath morning
to church resolved to enjoy the ser
vices. For awhile
1 sat alone among
the pews and was soothed by the si
lence of the temple. This sweet still
ness was soon rudely broken by the
rustling of silk &B three ladies came
gracefully sweeping down the aisle.
In thot, I had wandered away and
was walking with Christ at sunset bv
the gates of Capernaum, but the gaudy
and plumed head gear of the ladies
just then entering attracted my at
tention and called me back to the
fluttering realms of fickle fashion.
I soon found myself completely hem
med in by these fleeting blooms of
fashion. How earthly! How earthly!
I scrutinized some faces about me and
detected extreme anxiety in regard to
personal appearance. How earthly!
How earthly! Two gentlemen by my
side were in whispered conversation
about a sensational bank failure. An
other was inspecting the stubs of a
check book. How earthly! How
earthly! Then the preacher rose, and
began bis sermon. It was written
and when he began to stumble along
the lines and flounder about the pages
in a mechanical way, many in his
audience sank into a doze. Now and
then, when the monotony of the ser
mon was broken by a little bubble of
spontaneity, they would lanquidly
open theireyes for a moment. Again
I said to myself, "How earthly! How
earthly!" I turned my face to the
open window and gazed out far away
upon the calm, hazy hill, where Bwal
iowswere skimming here and there a
bove the waving corn and the fields
whitening with harvest. I solil
oquized almost aloud, "How divine!
How divine!" I then became obli
vious to what was going on in the
church until the benediction.
The house of God earthly grown
I turned sadly away
And let the distant summer hills
That morning preach to me.
To Clyde and His Bride.
Here's health to Clyde and his blush
ing bride
May they where e'er they roam
See love and peace daily increase
Within their quiet home.
May cares retreat before their feet,
And Sorrow skulk aside
To let them pass like o'er the grass
The Bummer breezes glide.
We'd have their boat serenely float
O'er life's murmuring sea,
Then cross the bar without ajar
Into Eternity.

No Intimation That Either Side Will
Concede Anything—Witte in Accord
With President—Conference May
Be Prolonged.
Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 22.—The
result of President Roosevelt's effort
to save the peace conference from
failure remains in suspense. No di
rect reply to the president's propo
sition communicated by M. Witte has
come from Emperor Nicholas, but oth
er advices received from St. Peters
burg indicate that the emperor and
his councilors are unshaken in their
determination neither to cede terri
tory nor pay war tribute. What the
president is doing on the Japanese
side remains as deep a mystery as
ever. Little light is shea upon the
visits of Baron Kaneko to Oyster Bay.
The Japanese do not even admit that
he is their medium of communication
with the president. They go no fur
ther than to reiterate that Mr. Roose
velt understands their position and
that they have the fullest confidence
in him. They show not the slightest
indication that they have in any wise
changed their position or are pre
pared to yield more than they were
last Friday, when the plenipoten
tiaries adjourned until this afternoon.
If M. Witte does not receive fresh
Instructions before 3 o'clock this aft

what It was before the adjournment
was taken on Friday. It will be safe
to assume that in the absence of such
a reply the conference will be pro
longed after today, and every delay,
in the opinion of the president's
friends, means hope, faint though it
be. Mr. Roosevelt's object was de
scribed as being to "prolong the nego
There is warrant for the statement
that M. Witte personally sympathizes
with the president's proposition, no
matter how it may be regarded by his
imperial master and his advisers. It
is a mistake to suppose that in con
sidering such a proposition the em
peror consults a regularly ordained
council. Throughout the conference
he has been calling in council such
advisers as he deemed wise, some of
