Let's not get frightened at
these doleful pictures put forth
to bolster up a business on which
the curse of God rests, but tak
ing courage from the victories
already won enter upon a more
vigorous tight against the blight
ing and soul destroying evil.

Their Campaign Has Begun.
Only a couple of weeka ago it
was announced in the daily pa
pers as a news item that a meet
ing of the heads of the great
breweries and wholesale liquor
dealers of the country had de
cided to begin a campaign of ed
ucating the people against tin
eff.'Cts of the great prohibition
and temperance wave that is
sweeping over the country
These big business establish-
ments th s tacitly admit that
prohibition does "prohibit," at
least in a large measure, else it
would be unnecessary for them
to fight the prohibition move
The first lesson submitted by
these interests so closely allied
with all that is vicious and dem
oraHzing app'ar^d in one of the
St. L 'uis Dailies in the form of
a half ptge illustration intended
to show "What Prohibition
Would D> to St. Louis." It rep
resented a tornado or cyclone
with its black and ominous
clouds sweeping down upon the
doomed city, conveying the idea
that death and destruction to all
business interests would follow
in the wake ol this "Prohibition
Demon " That the scare might
be more effective it showed in
column of figures the millions of
dollars invested in the manufac-
They Surprised Their Guests.
List Thursday night about a
score and a half of the friends
and neighbors of Mr. and Mrs
A. K. Lane, responded to an in
vitation to s|>end the evening
plaving Clinch at the Line home
On their arrival the door was
pened by Master Dana Davidson,
the 4 year old grandson of Mr.
md Mrs Lane assisted by their
laughter, Mrs. R. R. Davidson,
f KIReno, and Mrs. W. L
ITamer of Hennessey. The
guests were served punch by
Florence Herzberg. After a few
minutes spent in social conversa
tion Flinch w is announced and
score cards distributed —and
then came the surprise to the
guests. The score cards were
attached to a larger card an
nour.cing that the occasion was
to celebrate the 35th anniversary
of Mr. and Mrs. Lane's weduing
lay. At the left end of the card
were small photograph of the
bride and groom as they appear
ed 35 years ago, and at the right
t.heir photographs as recently
taken. Many were the exclama-
tions of surprise that were used
that the hostess had kept the
matter so completely from her
uests— and the saying that "a
woman can't Keep a secret," has
fewer believers than formerly.
An hour and a half at the Plin h
tables was followed by an ex-
luisite three course lunch. TI e
third course of the lunch con-
sisted of the privilege of gazing
in open eye 1 wonder at a small
piece of their wedding cake—35
vears old—and a larger piece of
ake served at their Silver
Wedding anniversary ten years

Since tha publicttion of an

Three ladies and two gentle-

St L iuis; the large number of
men employed by these various
establishments, the still greater
number of persons —the wives
and children dependent on these
employes, and the great effect
the withdrawal of the patronage
of these people from all other
lines of trade would have in the
business of the city. The show
ing w is formidable enough — md
no doubt will frighten snin"
timid souls so that they .vill b.'

The destructi in of this line of
business would eventually result
in the turniag of the capital now
employed therein into other
avenues, which if not so profit
able to the owners would b"
more helpful and less injurious
to the coin imnitv. Their ban
ishment would leave the vast
number of employes and their
victims with rational minds to
labor in other channels and
spend the fruits of their toil in
support of their families, thus
relieving the public of that bur-
den. It would also do away
with an immense expense in the

Mr. Barnard succeeded in the

news, or advertising or job work
and no soliciting committee had
been at work either. Tha. lack
of a suitable, large hall, for usf-
of conventions, institutes, etc.
keeps such institutions away
from here, and deprives the pio
pie of the ben -fit, both mental
and financial that would result
from them. Perhaps a public
meeting in the interest of an
opera house, and to aid in crystal
izing public sentiment in favor of
this question would be a proper
thing to have at some early date
