We have heard so much about the
wort ug of the prohibition laws that
we are very happy to be able to re
gale our select readers with an ac
count of its beneficial effects in New
Hampshire. This tale of joy comes
from the Newport (N. H.) Republi
can-Champion r>
Considerable excitement prevailed
at the Newport House at about 3 o’-
clock Friday morning when a young
man by the name of Curtiss Brassaw
made his entrance to the lobby of the
hotel only a few minutes after another
party had come in. He immediately
made his way to the ladies’ parlor,
which is up one flight of stairs, and
took a seat, whereupon the night clerk
Mr. Langdell, escorted him down to
the office.
The clerk could not seem to ascer
tain as to whether the young man had
made a reservation, so called the head
clerk, Mr. Nimky. Meanwhile Bras
saw had torn down an electric light
fixture over one of the writing desks,
broken two lights of glass in the di
ning room door and had drunk a bottle
of ink. He was obsessed with the 1-
dea that he had purchased the hotel,
and had a right to stay there. Police
man Mason S. Colby was called by
telephone, who with the assistance of
George E. Lewis. George Page. Ezra
Shattuck, Harold P. Shepard and
James Wright, placed him in the lock
up. He wa« taken to his home on
Greenhurst Street later in the day.
A little over a month ago a baby
was born on a Northwestern train be
tween Riverton and Lander. This
was a genuine Pullman birth.

Our worthy brother, the Shoshoni
Enterprise, reports that a Shoshoni
woman was much annoyed the other
day by mislaying her skirt. She final

We shall now cry, “Ichabod! Icha
bod!” The worst has come to pass.
We shall not be at all astonished to
hear that home brew has crept into
Heaven, now. For lo! it has reached
even unto the .earthly Zion, that one
run by Wilbur Glenn Voliva. And if
hooch can get in there, why should wp
serenely suppose that it cannot pt
by the gates of the other Zion? Mr.
Voliva has shown us so often that the
Almighty cannot manage the world
without him that we fear for Eternity.
• • • •
The one thing we cannot get into
our heads is, how did the Almighty
get along as long as he did without
Mr. Voliva?

We hear a great deal about the sad
lack of breeding in the United States; i
it is constantly held up to ug that we I
are an unmannerly people. For the:
edification of those who dwell upon
this depravity of Americans, we call
attention to the bandits who robbed;
the State bank at Pana, 111., and shot I
the cashier. Jack Wiliams, while do
ing the Job. They wrote to the woun
ded man, “Sorry we shot you. Jack i
hope you make a speedy recovery.’’,
What more could the most fastidious!
of us ask?

Among the most faithful friends of j
the Enterprise, and one of the most
worthy of all men from the point of!
view of this column, is H. von U. He
is an everpresent help in time of trou-,■
ble, for he sends many hundreds of I
notes and clippings to us. These he'
takes from many sources, cuts them |
out, and sends in little |
bundles, each held together by an e-l
lastic. We are more than grateful to
him; but we cannot help feeling that
he has taken advantage of his posi- ’
tion to foist off on us a pun so awful, |
so unearthly in its wild wickedness,;
that we must express our righteous!
wrath and indignation. No sadder!
penalty can we inflict than to repeat*
the words he wrote. These are those: i
“Cody should soon be a musical cen
ter because of the many rubber
bands, etc.”

We pause from crying "Ichabod"
some more only to ask what the ‘etc.’
stands for?
However, this good friend is not
wholly reprehensible. He sometimes
springs one on us that appeals to us,
and brings to our worn face the glad
presence of a sunny smile. He oft
times recalls to us our childhood, and
the honest tear courses unchecked
adown our swarthy cheek as we see
once more the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”
of our innocence. H. von U. writes:
“The season is approaching when
the memory of the advent of ‘Uncle
Tom's Cabin’ was a feature at the
one night stands. We remember when
the bloodhounds ran away from the
show because the actors got hungry
and ate the dogs’ meat, which was
used to tempt them across the muslin
Ice. We recall the suspicious town
constable who loitered around the R.
R. station until the hotel bill was
On Saturday morning Mrs. Martha
Olson died at the Jernberg Ranch on
the South Fork at the age of 84. She
was mother to Mrs. Jernberg.
The funeral was held at the ranch
on Sunday afternoon, and interment
took place In Ishawooa cemetery.

Rev. Blaskie Discusses
Washington Conference
Rev. D. R. Blaskie addressed the
Woman’s Club on Tuesday on the sub
ject of the Washington conference on
1 i limitation of armaments.
Outlining the influence of women
■ upon men who have been great world
shapers. Mr. Blaskie went on to say
■ that he was addressing the ladies on
1 this subject because of the influence
• they covid exert todav.
• The difference between the Wilson
League and this proposed Association
1 of Nations is that the former was a
group of fifty-one powers bent an po-
1 j llcing the earth, while Mr. Harding’s
1 group is of only four, to police the
- Pacific. Again, the present League is
F supposed to be perpetual, while the
5 one under discussion at Washington
• is to endure only ten years. And any
> nation cas withdraw from it on a
s year’s notice.
But, Mr. Blaskie asked, what is to
I prevent an alliance of Germany, Rus
-1 sia and China into a counter-associa-
• tion that can oppose this one and so
• wreck all hopes of world peace or e
’• ven peace in the Pacific?
The solution to the problem lies not
3 in legislation, diplomacy, treaties. It
t depends upon a more sincere appre
-3 ciation of the Christian doctrine of
’■ life —a more honest endeavor by all
men to love their neighbor as them
r selves.
