GENERAL NEWS BRIEFS.
; Short Items of Common Interest
Washington. Attorney General
I Daugherty declares that government
in thirty days will start vigorously
to enforce the law as interpreted by
Supreme court to stop American and
foreign ships from carrying liquor
within three-mile limit.
Augusta, Me.—Maine floods cause
estimated property loss of $3,000,000
and closing of factories puts thous

Claremore, Okla.—Cora V. Fry is
found dead in a water trough near

was slashed from ear to ear.

What Whiskey Will Do.
Whiskey has wrecked more homes
and ruined more lives than any one
thing you can find. It causes those
who drink to lose respect for themsel
i ves and for all they come in contact
| with. It will excite men. to deeds of
l'iot, robbery and blood and by all such
acts will lessen the comfoi't and en
danger the welfore of the community.
Whiskey fills the asylums, poor hous
es and prisons. It will increase dis
! eases and render those that are harm
i less incurable. It will make widows
j and orphans. Whiskey will cause the
! rising generations to grow lip in ig- ‘
norance, it will make mothers forget
their children and young women to
i lose all self-respect. Wkiskey will
j make little children go to bed hungry
! and cold. It will cause the wife and
mother many sleepless nights.
1 It will corrupt the church, cause
temperal spiritual and eternal death,
j Some nrofessing Christians give whis
key their cheerful countenance and
never speak one word against the use
of such fiiery stuff that is sending
thousands to untimely graves, with
out honor or I'espeet. I wish we could
I cut out whiskey in full, not that it has
i ever given me as an individual any
! trouble but I know of its power to
destroy, that is grand and noble in
I man. It fires them to do that which
he would not do while sober. It is
one of Satan’s best tools. May press,
pulpit platforms unite and fight
stronglv until deliverance comes.

again. This time some 125 school

learned its real, value and from now ; \

let us begin working for an eye din- ; j
