A big teak on most farms is the cost of doing the plowing. You should know how to stop this leak with the Emerson Foot-Lift Plow,—a plow that is built to Come if* iHtd f*t our 144 page ffhiBfraltd Farm Macfifaeiy Book with color illustration and all kinds of Farm Implements, Buggies, Wagons, Gas Meidinger Brothers The Facts About the Local Option League Your attention is called to the unfair and unwarranted methods of the spokesman of the Anti-Saloon League, who persists in presenting the South Dakota Local Option League as an organization dominated by the Squor interests. Such methods are characteristic of the more fanati- Prohibitionist*. Only recently the eminent Dr. John Emerson Roberts wrote in The Fra (September, 1915): The professional Prohibitionist is the most dogmatic tjT«U tt-calied re formers. He does not reason or argue ht asserts and demands he appeals to prejudice, to passion and to the unthinking mind. He knows that it it easier to arouse feeling than to awaken thought. The professional Prohibi tionist and paid reformer is vehement, hysterical, perfervtd, lacrymose and dangerous. He is dangerous because well meaning people are misled, the ignorant taken advantage of, the uninformed deceived, and the weak swept off their feet. The professional Prohibitionist and paid reformer is a greater' menace to the peace, welfare and prosperity of society than is the open saloon.'' Does not the above ring true? Have not t'le citizens of South Dakota been saturated with words of villification, abuse and misrep resentation directed against all who fail to agree with the self-chosen Itader and director of their private habits, as well as of public morals. Ill ght it not be well to inquire who elected the Superintendent of the Anti Saloon League to the office of inspector of morals and perhaps he will be w„iing to inform our citizens by what authority he deigns to assume the position of political boss. At any rate, should he not be expected to observe the truth? What Are the Facts? The South Dakota Local Option League is not a cloak for the liquor interests. It ,has not as a member any person interested in we manufacture and sale of liquor. It is supported by contributions worn disinterested citizens of the State who believe that we cannot aifonJ the disastrous results that follow Prohibition.

We make this denial chiefly for the purpose of directing the atten tion of South Dakota citizens to the fact that misrepresentation is a part of the ordinary stock in trade of Prohibition agitators. We also believe that a law that has removed the Uquor traffic fnB politics a hw that has substituted legal control for the corruption ana illegal practices which existed under Prohibition in South Dakota, It worthy of endorsement. Under local option the saloons of South Dakota have been notably reduced. There are now less than 200 saloons in our State as compared to 1,200 before the residents of the various local units availed themselves of their rights under our local option system. South Dakota has a tem perance record of which any so-called Prohibition State might justly feel proud, it is because of this noteworthy advance in temperance *nd sobriety that we «r«e every cWsca of this State to jam W*nf our local option law.
