A hint to a thief ought to be sufficient. For the last few months Prescott has been inflict ed with petty theives who ply their nefarious trade, especially on busy days. Not a few have been detected and others who have not been, as yet, caught open handed, are known. We are sorry to say that these theives are not confined to any one class of color, sex or condition. We hereby warn you to quit your meanness and save yourselves from the shame and disgrace of prosecution. From one who sincerely desires your betterment and reformation. THE GHOULISH COFFIN TRUST. Of all the trusts the ghouls of the coffin trust are the* most de spicable. They prey upon the I>oor in the hour of their grief when the savings have been de pleted by the enforced non-earn ing power of the bread winner. The cheap box, called a coffin, with its tawdry trappings that cost but a trifle is sold for a sum that represents weeks of labor. This coffin trust is protected by the Republican tariff from com petition by an import duty of per cent, under the paragraph in the tariff law of manufactur ers of wood not specially provid ed for. Thus the Republican standpatters have made the gov ernment the partne r and protect or of this ghoulish trust which adds to the misery of the be reaved ones by the imposition of a lax upon a necessity when least able to bear it. One of the first duties of a Democratic Congress will be to amend the tariff law by putting ceffins and caskets upon the free list. When private interests are able to resist the public will, there is a bad state of affairs. Who will “sit on the lid” when the President takes Taft along to look over the Panama Canal. Teddy’s genuine raids have not been made on the railroads | and meat packers, but on the wage earners, who pay the taxes. “All gone” is what they are now saying in Washington. This refers to the people’s money, as well as to Congress and the of ficial set. A Maine Republican predicts a Democratic majority of 5000 in his state this Fall. Why not make it unanimous, it’s time to turn the rascals out? Secretary Taft made a very pretty sp ech at Greensboro; but it had two defects; it was evas ive in most important particul ars; and where it was not evas ive, it was unfortunate. The government is spending this year $20,000,000 more than its total revenue in 1897. This is Rooseveltian economy. This is prosperity for the world-power bunco steerers, but not for the taxpayers. Benson, the new Republican Senator from Kansas, docs not favor the plan of the Farmers Unions of that state to elongate the male shirt tail and is too modest his ideas about peek-a boo waists for the women. Senator Foraker says he cannot sit still for two years. Why of course not. President Roosevelt can’t sit still for two minutes. The rattled condition of the Re publican party won’t allow any rest for its ardent votaries. What influenced President Roosevelt t o allow Secretary Bonaparte to give the armor plate trust such a big slice of that contract, when the Admin istration has been trying to make us all believe it was fighting the trusts? Oh yes, the Panama strip is quite salubrious since the Presi dent and Secretary Taft heve cleaned it up, yet of the detach ment of 300 marine who were stationed there 165 are on the sick list ond the whole detach ment has been ordered North on recuperate. The Railroads heve been will ing and anxious to furnish spec ial trains for the President and his friends free of cost, whether on pleasure bent, or on political trips. The Republican Congress has now saddled the cost on the people and tne railroads will be $25,000 a year ahead. God bless the girl who works! She is not too proud to earn her own living nor ashamed to be caught at her daily task. She smiles at you from behind the desk or counter, or printer’s case There is a sweet memory of her in everything she touches. She is like the brave mountaineer al ready far up the precipice climbing, struggling, rejoicing. The sight of an inspiration. It is an honor to know this girl and to be worthy of her esteem.

U.M | Jennie Carr Pittman ™ | Next meeting with Mrs. J. C. Young, August 10, at 4 o’clock. Temperance Teachings. ‘ ‘The workers are removed but the work goes on,” is quite a truthful statement. It seems to us that when the grave closed over the beloved form af our active, energetic and persistent Superintendent of Scientific Temperance Instruc tion in the public schools, Mrs. Mary H. Hunt, that this phase of our blessed work would surely be retarded for some time. But no! The message comes to us that a larger and stronger pull will be made by the ‘‘rank and ; file” than hitherto; That too ; much of the arduous labor was left to Mrs. Hunt’s master mind land willing hands, and, as in the case of Miss Willard’s death, a greater number will lend a hand and assume the leadership in the various states. This leads us to say, that the vast importance of a widespread knowledge of the subject of hy giene and temperance among the rising generation cannot be ov errated, and we are glad of this greater attention being given to it. The slipshod manner, and the limited hours devoted to the teaching of this subject in the Thru. C. McRae. Pres. W. \ Foster, V.-Prcs. C. 5. McCain. Cashier Bank of Prescott PRESCOTT, ARK.

It is quite apparent that an ef fort should be made to follow the example of Great Britian, (who by the way has coppied our laws) for the appointment of specially qualified teachers who should go about the country giving instruc tion both to the ordinary school teacher and to pupils, in the principles of health, with the material apparatus and the best! illustrations that can be made, in order to enable teac hers to dis play to the children the real facts! of health, the real nature of al cohol and other narcotics, which } are deleterious to health. Temperance teaching is evi-1 dently bearing good fruit. In one of the largest schools | of a certain poor district there was scarcely a child but had his or her life spoiled by drink in the home. Asked what they were going to be when they grew up, they shouted, “Tetotalers. ” What would they do with the drinking houses? ‘‘Shut them all up,” was the almost fierce reply, vv nat other shops would open if they should shut the drink shops? "The clothes shop, and the boot shop,” were the first mentioned. What other shop would close if the drink shops were shut? “The pawnshop” was the instant re 1 ply Lectures on Inebriety. It is asserted by the best au thorities and sustained by sta tistics. that at least a half mil lion persons are suffering from the spirits and drugs in this country. Also that the direct and indirect mortality from this source is from sixty thousand to a hundred thousand every year. The theory of disease has prac tically been accepted by the med ical profession. A few physi cians have been urging the med ical study of this subject, and creating a literature andattempt I ing to arouse the profession to study the alcohol and drug evils from a scientific standpoint, and become teachers of public senti ment rather than followers as at present. So we are glad to note that recently the co iege of phy sicians and surgeons of Boston, have invited Dr. T. D. Crothers, of Hartford, who is secretary of the National Medical Association and who is also the editor of the •Journal of Inebriety, to give a systematic course of lectures on this subject before the graduat ing class of the college. This is said to be the first effort made by the medical colleges of this country to teach its graduates some of the facts of this most important and timely subject, and will no doubt be followed by similar courses in other colleges. The time has come when this subject must be taught to the graduate students to enable them to meet the increasing demand for medical treatment of this class. Deafness Cannot, be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Fust achian Tube. When this tube is in liamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the inflamation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed for ever; nine cases out of tori are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
