"Some years ago Oliver came to
Climax. Ga.. and held himself out as
la 'business giant.'" declared Miss
English in a recent newspaper state-

he was worth five million dollars
and represented to me many other
flattering statements of himself and
his business ability. He told me of
his love for me and how- he would
always care for me if I would marry
him. I was only fifteen years old
and was In Young's Female college,
at Thomasville. I left school to get
married to this man, not realizing
just what I was doing.

Can any moral uplift ever be really accomplished that does not embrace a doing away with the root of
the evil? There can be no question but that this must be answered in the negative. The individual must be
educated to realize that abstinence from the evil is for his own personal good, in order that the moral uplift
be genuine. This the local option law does not do. Government statistics show that in spite of the nation
wide support of local option, there is more wine, liquor and beer consumed'than ever before.
So long as a person can acquire the appetite, just so long'will he satisfy that craving and if he can't do it
lawfully, the chances are largely in favor of his finding a way to circumvent the law. Then is the moment
that that person's moral self begins to go downward. He soon makes himself believe that the laws are not
for him to obey and as a consequence his whole aspect of right living has been changed.
When we allow such a state of mind to grow in Rock Island we are starting backward, for disregard for
one law means disregard for all laws, if they do not please us. In order that this great county of ours shall
prosper, we must feel that our laws were made for us personally and that it is our duty to obey them.
