Observations of Passing Events.
A well informed farmer said to us this week that he believes
corn is one of the greatest crops yet. And so it is. He said
, . r almost every animal about the farm can
Great is Corn. , , , J , ... . ,
be fed upo:i corn, and this is true. The
people of the South generally have no true conception of the
v alue of the corn crop. It has long been a wonder why the
people in this part of the country will raise cotton and peanuts
to the exclusion of all food crops for stock and team and then
take their cotton and peanuts to market and trade them off for
less corn than they could have made on the same land. Some
will say that they can take the cotton and peanut money from
ten or fifty acres of land and buy more corn with it than they
can make on the same land. But where one man can work
that plan with success and keep good and fat horses, ten will
fail and keep common and poor horses. The time has not yet
passed this season for planting more corn than usual. Only a
few acres to the horse more than farmers have been planting
will go a long way towards supplying the farms next year with
corn enough to feed the teams, and the farmer who buys corn
this year at the present high price ought to be able to appre
ciate what such a condition means. Great is corn, and the
sooner the farmers learn it the better for them.

notable conflicts the people have ever been engaged in. Being
as it is a non-partisan issue, men of all political persuasions
have taken arms and entered the field against tha liquor traffic.
The sweep of the prohibition wave throughout the Uuitel States
is unparalleled. Scarcely a fight has been lost. Whether the
issue was up for decision in the far North, or in the South or
West, election returns have recorded victories of gigantic pro
portions for the advocates of prohibition. No longer is the pro
hibitionist looked upon as a long haired fanatic, for the pres
ence in the fighting ranks of statesmen of national power and
influence, governors, senators and men whose namss carry
weight in the business world, has brought the personnel to that
point where respect is commanded. Since the fight for white
supremacy our own State has not witnesed such a battle as that
which has been and is being waged. The leaders of the prohi
bition movement are the most prominent men and officials of
tho State, of all partie3. The good women, too, vhave done a
noble service in moulding sentiment. In fact every influence
has been cxeried, every stone upturned, evry moment of time
vised, with the result that almost with one accord the people are
demanding State prohibition."
The prohibitionists have all good reasons for believing that
they will carry the State for prohibition on May 25th. The
liquor people have no idea of- defeating

are well aware that the people of the State have made up their
minds to try prohibition. The evils of the liquor traffic have
become so great and grinding in so many ways that the people
have about reached the conclusion that they cannot stand it
longer and nothing will satisfy them but a trial of prohibition,
in the face of all the false reports about its failure in the States
which have tried it. This the

Prohibition Principles Were Set
Forth by God in the Decalogue.
A DRUNKARD IS NOT FIT TO LIVE OR DIE
A Convincing Argument in Favor of
PronioitiOD In Ncrth Carolina.
(Elder Hassell, in Gospel Messenger.)
The prohibition of anything is
the forbidding of it. The second
law given by God to man was a pro
hibition of his eating the fruit of the
tree of the knowledge of good and
evil, it was a good law, and, if Adam
and Eve had obeyed it, the fearful
curse of sin and death would not, it
seems, have befallen the human race.
Eight of the ten commandments
given by God to Israel at Mount
Sinai were prohibitions (all of them
except the fourth ar.d fifth, to keep
the Sabbath and to honor parents).
God says that these commandments
were for the good of Israel (Deut
10:13): and, although our sinful na
ture rebels against the law of God,
Paul declared that the law is "holy,
just and good." (Rom. 7:7-14).
At present the word "prohibition"
is generally used to denote the for
bidding of the manufacture or sale
of spirituous liquors. Without fear
or favor, I shall present the certain
facts on both sides of this subject,
gathered from the latest and high
est authorities, for the information
and guidance of the readers of The
Gospel Messenger. .
The word rendered "wine" in the
Scriptures means a liquor, either
fermented or unfermented, made
from the juice of grape; and the
word rendered"strong drink"means
a liquor made from any other fruit
except the grape, or made from
honey, especially old and powerful
wine. Distillation is a product of
modern "civilization," and was un
known to the ancients and to sav
ages. The excessive use of wine or
strong drink is positively and re
peatedly forbidden throughout both
the Old and New Testaments Scrip
tures, but their moderate use, both
as a beverage and a medicine, is al
lowed except to priests when about
to serve in the tabernacle. (Levit.
10:9), and to those men or women
who had taken the vow of a Nazar
ite, a Separatist. (Num. 6:1-3); and
it was entirely forbidden by Jonadab, j
the son of Rechab.to all his descend
ants, who were to be nomads or wan
derers, living in tents, and not build
ing houses, sowing seed, or planting
vineyards (Jer. 35:6:10). The Re
chabites were the descendants of
Abraham and Keturah, and inter
married with the Levites, and God
blessed them to "stand before Him"
or be His servants. They honored
their ancestor Jonadab by obeying
him, and they preferred their simple,
free, sober, moral, healthful desert
life to the unwholesome luxuries
and ruinous vices of a corrupfcivil
ization,"and they were the steadfast
opponents of oppression, idolatry,
and sensualty. It is an essential
qualification of a gospel minister not
to be"given to wine"(l Tim. 3-3; Ti
tus 1:7). Wine and strong drink
weaken and corrupt people physical
ly, mentally and morally, and unfit
them for. the service of God (Isa.
27:7). It has been said that greater
calamities have been inflicted on
mankind by drunkenness than by
wars, pestilence, and famine; that
120,000 persons in Enerland and 100,
000 in the United States are killed
every year by the drinking of spirit
uous liquors; that the use of alcoho
lic stimulants causes one-half of the
pauperism and disease, one-third of
the insanity and idiocy, and three
fourths of the crime in "civilized"
countries. Alcohol has been well
called the "very genius of degrada
tion;" taken in large quantities, it
clots the blood, overworks the heart,
dilates the capillaries, retards diges
tion, ulcerates the stomach, substi
tutes an unhealthy fat for healthy
tissueschills the body, soon after
being taken, two degrees below the
normal temperature, so that its use
has had to be discontinued in Artie
expeditions, paralyzes the nerves,
crazes the brain, debases the consci
ence, opens the system to the attacks
of disease, and propagates its evils
to the third generation. It is a pois
on, and more than twenty of the
rankest poisons are used to adulter
oto nnd color and expand it. The
Baptists of the seventeenth century
(who adopted the old London Con
fession of Faith), excluded from
their chuiches persons who sold spir
ituous liquors, and those who drank
to excesc. Elder William Gadsby,
nf Ensland (born 1773 died 1844),
author of the "Everlasting Task for
Arminians'and of "The Perfect Law
of Liberty," totally abstained from
the use of spirituous liquors the last
ten years of his life, though he
never joined and Abstinence Society;
and to a young man who waited on
him in his last illness, he said, "Shun
wine as you would shun the Devil."
Elder Thomas Leland, of Massachu
setts, (born 1756, died 1841), during
the most of his life drank no spirits,
but in his last years, on account of
his advanced age and infirmities, he
drank about a gallon a year, never
taking more than a spoonful at a
time, and that not often. My fath
er, Elder C. B. Hassell, made, in his
eighteenth year, five excellent reso
lutions, to which he steadfastly ad
hered through life to abstain from
the use of intoxicating liquors, gam
ing, and profanity, and to be strictly
truthful, honest, and upright in all
his dealings. I myself never go into
a saloon for any purpose, and never
drink spirituous liquors. O that all
human beings would do the same !
It would make them far healthier,
saner, calmer and happier, and en
able them to improve their material
condition, and to do more to relieve
the widow and the fatherless, the
destitute and the afflicted, and to
devote more to education and reli
gion. Societies, oaths, and laws are
far les3 effective thn the knowledge
and proper consideration of these
It is said that there are 114,00
more saloons than churches in the
United States, and that nearly two
thousand million of dollars were
spent last year in this country for
alcoholic liquors more than enough
to pay all the expenses of the Feder
al government, executive.legislative,
judicial, navy.army.postofnce, treas
ury, and every other department.
About fifty years ago a wave of pro
hibition swept over many of the
Northern States, but nearly all of
these States after a while abandoned
State prohibition, and adopted the
license system or local option. A
wave of prohibition, in the form of
either State action or local option, is
now sweeping over the South, so
that, of the twenty million people in
the fourteen Southern States, seven
teen million in the North, or thirty
six million people in the entire Union
occupying two-thirds of the territory
of the United States, are under pro
hibitory liquor laws. Ten million
have expelled the saloon by State
action, and twenty-six million by lo
cal option. It is claimed that con
science, education, economy, and
social peace and progress are the
motives urging on prohibition in this
country. Local option, being aided
by public sentiment, is more effec
tive than State prohibition. The
Committee of Fifty(eminent sociolo
gists) in New York have thoroughly
investigated the matter, ascertained
that rigid efforts to enforce prohibi
tion laws generally lead to hypo
crisy, bribery, curruption, and law
breaking; and these evil results are
likely to continue unless the laws re
flect public sentiment, and unless
Congress prohibits the importation
of liquor from "wet" into "dry"
territory, which the Judiciary Com
mittee in the Senate thinks to be un
constitutional, as restricting inter
state commerce. But all the South
ern States seem determined to try
prohibition. If enforced, it may
cause a decrease of drunkenness and
of the poverty, disease and crime re
sulting from drunkenness; but only
the abounding grace of God in the
heart can cure the thirst for strong
drink and the love of other sin3, per
fectly and forever. Temperance is
not total abstinence, but is the mod
erate and lawful use of the gift of
Providence. All who can not use
spirits temperately should never use
them at all.
A drunkard is not fit to work, to
live, or to die; and a habitual mod
erate drinker of alcoholic liquors is
on the dangerous down-grade to dis
ease, pauperism, degradation, crime
and death. But let it not be supposed
that total abstinence from spirituous
liquors, though excellent in itself,
will make a man perfect here on
earth or prepare him for heaven.
The Mohammedans are, according
to the laws of their false prophet,
total abstainers from alcoholic
drinks, and yet they are hypocrites,
thieves, robbers, debaunchers, and
murderers. Every kind of virtue is
good in its place; but true religion,
the religion of God, is in the heart,
and blossoms in the speech.and fruits
in the life, reverences God, and bene
fits man, and its possessor will be
perfected in heaven.
An honest man wishes to know
"the truth, the whole truth, and
nothing but the truth" on any sub
ject presented for his decision."

Directors of Office of Public Roads
Conduct Some Experiments.
MOTORS AT A MILE A MINUTE.
Rubber Tired Vehicles Moving at High
Speed Strip and Euln Soads.
(Cor. toTh Ccmmon wealth.)
Washington, D. C.
A two ton racing autemobile mov
ing at something in excess of a mile
a minute, while an impenetrable
cloud of fog-grey rock dust hung to
the horizon and marked the speeding
course of the big machine, was the
sight witnessed by the travelers on
the famous conduit road a dozen
miles from Washington on Thurs
day, April 23.
The seemingly pronouced violation
of the speed ordnances was counten
anced by two of the Nation's feder
al departments; Agriculture and
War; however, the rushing motor
car having been pressed into requisi
tion by L. W. Page, Director of the
Office of Public Roads, and Dr. Al
lerton S. Cusham, Assistant Direc
tor, in the effort to determine the
efFects of automobile traffic upon
macadam highways, and the stretch
of thorougfare was placed at their
disposal by War Department offi
cials. While the racing car and others of
various weights and types made
many trips over the selected stretch
of a mile and a half at varying rates
of speed, from 5 to 65 miles an hour,
a corps of skilled photographers,
equipped with the most modern de
vices for photographing vehicles at
very high speeds, made accurate re
cords of the various tests.
It has long been known to high
way engineers that automobiles were
rapidly shortening the lives of the
rock surface roads of the world, and
many experiments have been made
in the past six or seven years to de
termine the actual cause of the dam
age done. To understand how the
soft broad tires of the modern motor
car can work an injury to a surface
that not only witstands, but im
proves under the constant passing
and repassing of vehicles with iron
tires, one must be apprised briefly
of the theory on which, first
Tresauget of Limoges, and later
MacAdam of Ayr, worked when
giving such highways to the world.
They reasoned that a road surfaced
with bits of stone would improve
under wagon traffic because the iron
tires of the passing vehicles would
constantly crush the stones and form
rock dust particles; that those rock
dust particles would not merely fill
in all the interstices between the
stones but would also form a surface
dust binder; the wettings and roll
ings tending to cement the dust into
a shell-like surface and thus make
the entire road one traffic-withstanding,
They reasoned well and wisely.
The macadam roads lived up to the
theories of their inventors and im
proved with the passing years until
the advent of the automobile. It
was but a short time after it came
into vogue that highway engineers
in all civilized lands learned that a
new condition was confronting them
and that established customs were
being menaced. The trouble was
quickly traced to the automobile and
it was studied. It was soon noted
that the soft rubber tire was the
highway menace. It crushed no
rock itself and therefore contributed
no quota of the needful surface dust
binder, while the tremendous trac
tive force of the rear wheels drew
up the dust made by the iron tired
wagons and sent it whirling away
over adjacent lands.
Those who witnessed the experi
ments of Thursday near the Nation
al Capital could not doubt for a
moment that the various road ex-
I perts all over the world are correct
in the opinion that very rapidly
driven automobiles are rapidly tear
ing up the surface of the macadam
road, for not only were huge clouds
of dust lifted into the air and blown
off the road, but careful examina
tion showed that the material under
the wheel tracks of the machine was
distinctly loosened and ravelled even
during the short period of these
No such effects were noticeable
after the passing of iron tired ve
hicles; the series of tests beginning
with the passing of a horse drawn
vehicle. This was photographed as
it moved along and also as the wagon
tires passed a given mark. Then the
automobiles were sent over the
course. The first was a heavy weight
touring car moving at five miles an
hour. A series of pictures was made
of that car on it3 many journeys at
varying rates of speed until its max
imum of 45 miles an hour was at
tained. Then the work was taken
up by the huge racer, which tore
down the road first at a speed of 50
miles an hour, then at 55, 60, and
finally at 65. It fairly lifted the
road surfacing material as it sped
along, regular ridges of rock dust
rising in front of the rear wheela
and floating away in blinding clouds.
Other testa were made and other
pictures taken of various types of
heavy Limousine cars and runabouts.
It is plainly noticeable and was com
mented on that the automobiles
when moving at the slow rates of
speed equal to the speed made by
horse-drawn vehicles made very
little dust, the theory that fast
speeding automobiles are responsible
for road surface destruction being
pretty thoroughly substantiated by
The results of this interesting bit
of road work will be carefully
studied and put together in a paper
or papers to be presented to the In
ternational Road Congress which
will meet at Paris on October 11; for
so far-reaching are the ravages of
the automobile on the wonderful
roads of France that that country
has urged highway engineers of all
lands to assemble at her gay metro
polis in the fall to take up the prob
lem and strive for a solution of it.
