We are selling more Cloth ing than any house in Prescott. WHY? Quality Highest Prices Lowest D. M. CITY, Prescott, - - Arkansas. "PERSONAL LIBERTY" 'he liquor dealers, recognizing at their very obvious pecuni y interests would lessen the light of an argument which iy might publicly advance, are ting their fight under cover organizations purporting to present those who use liquor, my well-meaning men have en misled into believing that ery attempt to lessen the s of intemperance is a “fa ical attack” on “personal irty.” is time the phrase “personal rty” were defined. What is meant by “personal rty?” foes it mean that a person a right to drink in any quan , at any time, and at any :e. no matter what injury be inflict upon others? If not, h whom rests the right to fix itations? drunken man is a menace to lives and property of those it him; have his neighbors right to protect themselves? drunkard robs his wife and ren, and he may finally ;e his family and himself a rge upon society; has society right to protect itself? ie saloon is next-of-kin to brothel and the gambling it is a rendezvous for the linal element and the willing of the corrupt politician; has not the body politic a right to protect itself from the demorali zation which the saloon works? The right to drink does not necessarily include the right to demand the establishment of a saloon. The right to drink is sufficiently protected by any ar rangement that permits the reasonable use of liquor under reasonable conditions; and it must be remembered that the right to drink, like any other right, can be forfeited. Nothing is more sacred than the right to life, and yet'one may forfeit his right to life if he uses it in such a way as to threaten the life of another. So, the man who drinks to excess may forfeit the right to drink ;even the moderate drinker may forfeit the right to drink in moderation if, not con tent with reasonable regulation, he insists that liquor shall be sold under conditions that con stitute a menace to the home and the state. The man who desires to drihk moderately ought to join with those who seek to reduce the evils of drink to the lowest possi ble point, instead of allying him self writh those who ignore the evils of intemperance and resist every effort put forth for the protection of society. — The Com moner.
