The Sea Helps Keep Bad Neighbors From "Expressing" In Rumn,. There is a little island on the con fines of the Arctic ()cean 300 miles long by 200 miles wide. It is 0ci0) miles from Norway, 500 miles from the north of Scotland, and 250 miles from Greenland and belongs to Den mark. Its name is Iceland. It is a barren land, much of it snow-capped mountains and burning volcanoes. Iti has no trees. 'There is enough grass on the ground not too hardened with the lava crust to keep the few hornless osen and little ptti'es that do their work. The sunn-r is too short for Scorn or wheat to 2row. They raise potatoes and a feº vegetables. They catch the finest fish, and some seals, and shoot swan and duck. They live in hovels made of turf and lava blocks and are very poor. But they are of a splenlid race. They are Scandinavi anu, they speak the Norwegian lan guage. They have a brave and he- Eno roic history. Their'fathers discovered it America 500 years before Columbus stumbled upon the West Indies. They have to import their bread, they used to import their liquor. But it played such havoc with their people. that they have banished it entirely. They ' have la law forbidding the manufac- reg ture of intoxicating liquor at home, 190 and though having free trade they do Ne not allow a barrel or bottle of liquor am to enter the island. What is the re- res sult'. There is no jail, no criminal inc court, and only one policeman. There dir is not a person on the island over cid ten years of age who cannot read and sin write. There are public schools, sem- fot inaries, colleges, newspapers, books, tot a classic literature, churches and a splendid type of religion. The Ice- .1 lander with inature against him, with the barren soil and volcano and iceberg, Sc and sea shutting him in and sullen to' winter, by his healthy religion and by thi his total prohibition of the liquor of traffic has set an excellent example to ch nations more highly favored.- He has ou illustrated the fact that total absti- in nence can abstain and that total pro- m' hibition can prohibit and that they sb are friendly to education, virtue and m' religion. te WHAT THE ABOLITION OF THE SALOON te DID FOR FARGO. st At a public meeting the late Mayor e of Fargo made the following address which is singularly eloquent in its facts: "Mri. Mayor, Ladies andjGentlemen: w I have been invited to come and say to you, if I understand the subject, di what we are accomplishing in Fargo, without in any way receiving aid, in revenue for the liquor traffic Fargo has prospered without a sa loon far better than it ever ilid withit. a Instead of being depopulated it has o more than doubled in population since the saloons left us. Rents have not r gone down, but have gone up, If there S is any difference. There Is not today , in Fargo, nor has there been a vacant c house fit for a mouse to live in, or a a - vacant store since the saloons left. In the past four years more than one million dollars has been invested in r new buildings in Far'go. a When the saloons were with us, we did not have a single yard of paving in the city; we had no sewer system, and did not own our water works. To day we have more than fifteen miles of t streets, with a sewer under every yard t of paving, and miles of sewers where t the paving does not extend. We own our water works and they are more than self-sustaining. We have done all that, and at the same time our tax Ses are lower than in a great many cities where they have the saloon." - It is the same story everywhere from where the experiment is honestly and bson, bravely uudertaken, and yet despite mplil the facts there are so many stunid Tyler Christians who do not realize them, so many lazy ones who do not care for the trouble of a fight against ruinm, and so many who are afraid to con tend against so strong and savage a bating foe. f icial S2nd VERMONT SICK OF HIGH LICENSE. udge Vermont after enjoying the blessing rt of Prohibition for so many years, in re a; evil hour went back to a license is the system, to a high license one to be sure, but she brought upon herself ever damages from which she had been elieve comparatively free. When the license by the law was passed in 1903 ninety-two towns adopted it. Fifty-two of these S returned to prohibition at the end of I iform- one year, fourteen more voted down d bar rum the next year, and at the election uch held recently only twenty-nine towns went wet. Only one county in the State gave a majority for licen'se and the vote of the State indicated a ma rict. jority of 8697 in favor of Prohibition.

An all day's downpour of rain Sun day with frequent showers since then, has rendered harvesting and thresh ing practically impossible for several days to come in this vicinity. While the rain was continuous for about 18 hours yet there was not as much water fell here as has often occured in a much shorter space of time, and not nearly so much as fell west of this place. There was practically no wind so that damage from that source was slight. Altogether this section was not nearly so badly damaged as other points, judging from reports which we have seen. Lake Charles, La., Oct. 15th:--The rain that begun Saturday night and continued until yesterday afternoon in Lake Charles was not only the heaviest but the most disastrous that has visited Lake Charles for many a C year. During Saturday night and early Sunday morning a strong wind accompanied the rain which did un told damage tothe rice crop still stan i ding in the fields. Jennings, La., Oct. 15.-Jennings and vicinity has again experienced a r terrible rain and wind storm which begun on Saturday night, continuing throughout the night and the entire day on Sunday. Much damage is be ing reported from this rain by the a planters in this section. y The rainfall in the city amounted to a trifle over 6 inches within 24 hours, ti r from six o'clock Saturday evening un f til six o'clock Sunday evening. It is e estimated that the damage to the rice crop is at least 20 per cent-Lake Charles Press. Kinder, La.
