' GOING DRY
Old Kaihtuck, the land of fair
women and fast horses, not to men
tion the whiskey, is going dry. The
very broodmares in the meadows are
looking over the fences and whick
ering in amazement. The recogniz
ed journalistic leaders of the whiskey
interests have declared that a vote is
inevitable at some time and the con
test may as well come now. The
sentiment of the state is overwhelm
ingly dry but is held in leash by the
fear of displacing the large amount
of capital invested in the distilling
The result of whiskey domination
in this state has startled Kentucky
citizens Blessed with a beneficent
climate and a wonderful limestone
soil which grows everything from
grain to brawny men, possessing a
beautiful landscape which ranges
from majestic mountains into the
roll ng pastures of the bluegrass,
the land of the colone's, and kernels

wreath of smoke over the summits
of the mountains are grinding anarchy
out of independence, poverty from
humble plenty. Thefued has been
found to worm its deadly length from
the moonshiner's bottle of "corn

the people of the state by starthpg
revelations that, despite the lure of
the far-famed bluegrass, the popu

while "other Southern states were
forging ahead in the night. Education
has been hampered by wapt of funds
yhich have been yielded an unwilling

mate business is being gradually
choked to death by the whiskey oc
topus which controls the city banks
and holds capital in its unproductive
grasp. The people groan under an in
cubus the like of which is not known
in antoher state of the nation.
Kentucky is facing such a cam
paign of liquor falsehood as has
never been before witnessed. It will
require splendid organization, an army
of workers, and constant, well-placed
educational publicity to win the
state for prohibition but with the
proper campaign victory is inevitable.
Killed Her Engine.

to have absorbed some of the talk she

struck an obstruction, and her progress
across the room wns stopped. "Whoa,"
she exclaimed, "I've killed my engine."
