John 'Barleyvcorn Breathes His Last
At thie stroke of twelve on last Tues
day night the sale of whiskey in lthe
t'. S. waits made one of the events of
past history. There was great excite
ment during the last few days of "Old
John's" existence. Thirsty beings from
far anld near sought the wets spots,
and1 one would judge from the effort
putforth that they tried to drink it
all so that none would lie left to ponder
over. The conduct of these wine bib
hers on the last days of booze's exist
enee was disgusting, and another point
in favor of those who believe the world
will he better off without the presence
df intoxicating liquors.
While calling to mind the events ill
the life of John Barlh'ycorn we are cotn
fronted with his criminal influence,
which evidence in his trial for life
brought about the death penalty, hand
ed down by the jury of the great ma
jority of the people. We! do not doubt
in the least that he wasf the guiding
hand in ninety per cent of the crimes
coinmitted during his existence, alnd
-nyt there wdre the "mourners" that
held him utp as the "Ameri(.an privil
ege.' and heltf that "Free Amleri('a" was
loolag its title. But yet, those who
sought his companioniship are being
released from hondageP, and we prediet
that ~nany who possess the inuignia of
a whiskey soaked human beitng-a red
nose-.-will,lbecome sober Jong enough to
take a peep ait the other side of life
and will heed the call to bIe meu.
We fully realize that there are those,
who will defy the law 1111and Imanufa
ture the vile stuff in the mountiuins,

hut the days of their existence are num
