on Tuesday evening, about eight o'clock, in double file, led on by a resolute captain. The first demonstration was made upon the doggery of Jacobs..' They summoned
him to surrender his liauid poison, which he refused to do. 5 A charge was ordered and the den was taken by storm. The keeper levelled a' loaded rifla all the wo
men, but one resolute young lady of 18, boldly seized the rifle by the muzzle,' while others aided her in wrenching it from the grasp' of the cowardly, miscreant.
Thenj commenced a demolition of his demijohns of fiery fluid. .An axe was called into requisition. ; His whisky burrels were stavwdi and his gambling implements
were' cut to pieces. The citizens out side cheered the female assailants.. I After sacking the den, they marched in good order to several other "hells" end cxtiio-uished
their fires in a similar manner. They then visited mother Younker's horrible sink of iniquity, in solid column. The old dame fought them with an iron pokerv with the
ferocity of a tigress, but she was completely routed. .The cellar doors of her pest house was smashed open, and all the liquor found pa her premises was destroyed.
The next point of attack was E. Slocum's who succeeded in barricading his door, and with the assistance of the lqaers. with loaded! blunderbusses,-horse pistols and re
volvers, maintained the entrance against the heroines. Several other liquor establishments were, visited, but compromises were-effected.; j The owners pl'jdging tiiem
selves to deal out ivo'moreof the destroying fire water, and to shut up then: gambling devices..:, t.- .n o i? yor; m ojt 301
This is what might b termed applying the axe to the root of the tree..! 1 The ladies engaged in the war were the most respectable in' the town of 'Ashland. They
acted 'on the dernier resort, and when longer forbearance was impossible,' tore the curse, up by the roots, by main physical force. - . The only wonder is that tbet did not
follow n oft repeated example irather than a set one. . That mothers and wives, daughters and sisters, have not arisen long ere tli'w, and extirpated this .awful scourge
from the land; because it is those thatmust suffer the more terrible consequence of gambling and of drunkenness. Buoyent JmmaL ryUUt,tf ';o u-o utf.-j
