AN ISLAND ENTIRELY DRY.
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.

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.

crop And Weather.
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
