ing their ballots for the battle royal in
November. The time is close at
hand for the voter to choose, which
he will vote for .strong drink and be
cursed with all of its evil effects or
Prohibition and be blessed with all of
its good effects. When we vote for
the liquor interest, we vote for the
drunkard to keep on getting drunk;
beat and starve his family and for the
saloon in to create new drinkers to
break mothers' hearts, because their
boys are drinking and going to ruin;
some to the penitentiary, some to the
gallows and all to a drunkard's grave
and a drunkard's eternity. When we
vote for Prohibition, we vote forthe
drinker to stop drinking, the drunk
ard to stop getting drunk and pro
vide food ana clothing for his family
and stop the saloon. From manufac
turing new drinkers that mothers
may be proud of their sober boys and
instead of going the downward they
are traveling the upward road to the
plain of noble manhood, making their
dear old mothers' hearts glad to see
her boy grown to be a good useful
man to a better and higher life. It is
written as we sow so shall we reap.
Should we not consider what kind of
a vote we sow in Missouri in
November on the liquor question?
In sowing wheat, flax, oats and plant
ing corn, we are very careful about
the seed. We sow-, for we know we
will reap what we sow. Have your
lamps filled with Prohibition oil and
bo ready to use your Prohibition
i talent, and you
win rejoice to reap
