Our new school scats have
come at last so we are feeling
OUND AN ALARM!
Alas the serpent lifts its head
Again in Oklahoma.
We had surmised that it was dead,
And with it rum's diploma
Made void for one and twenty years.
But suddenly there now appears
Again that great red dragou,
Vain in his liquor-wagon.
Sound an alarm both young and old,
That monster must be banished.
Shout Victory, proclaim it bold
Till every trace has vanished
Of that great foe, King Alcohol,
So dangerous to mind and soul;
That curse that robs the nations
Of daily bread and rations.
Arouse yourselves, and sober up;
Your services to offer.
The liquor trnst—damnation's cup
Will make our cause to suffer.
WTe must defend our vantage ground;
Stand up for temperance true and sound,
And drive, as soldiers clever,
Kum from our State forever.
"Wine is a mocker," O how true,
Is what the Lord hath spoken.
Experience tells what wiue will do:
How families are broken.
Look at the poverty and woe,
And on the tears that freely flow.
Drink causes grief and sorrow
This day, and on the morrow.
O hellish traffic, human curse,
That leaves the wives dressed shoddy.
It means consumption to the purse,
And ruin to soul and body.
The family is poorly fed;
The children often cry for bread:
Their father is a drunkard
So sleep they must enhungered.
Intoxicating vicious foe,
Thy baneful course pursuing,
The world will never fully know
The great harm thou a *t doing.
Thou robber of man's stength and sense,
Art worse than many a pestilence.
Vast hosts art thou enthralling;
Whose death rate is appalling? '
Who fills our penitentiaries'?
King Alcohol for certain.
Delirium tremens and disease
(Kaise higher still the curtain)
Are rum s results. O burning shame.
I he whiskey barrel is to blame.
And beer and their relation
Aie ravaging our nation.
Insane asylums harbor, too,
Their candidates of sorrow.
They tell the story, sad, but true;
1 heir brows show many a furrow.
That fiery poison sent them there.
At home is weeping and dispair;
The cup of grief runs over;
I here's naught the loss to cover.
The paupers made by demon drink,
Run up into the millions.
The dollars squandered-stop and think-
Are counted by the billions.
Such is ale's record, old and new,
The widows and the orphans, too,
Are legions in their number;
Some live, but others slumber.
War with its fiendish bloody reign,
As told on history's pages,
Claimed less of victims in its train
Throughout the va^t long ayes,
Than this despotic foe of life;
That source of treachery and strife
Which holds whome'er it tackles,
Bound down in slavery's shackles.
Saloons are hotbeds of disgrace
To city, town, and village;
Where criminals find a planning-place
For murder, theft and pillage.
And, there, amid deluded throngs
Are bred ten thousand other wrongs.
Inns, brewers and distillers
Are rampant poor-house fillers.
Protest against that liquor-ring;
Stand up like men and fight it.
The ballot is the only thing
By which you can decide it.
Strike hard and bruise the serpent's head •
Fight manfully till it is dead.
And vote NO, every member,
The Eighth Day of November.
F. A. Lorenz.
The Postmaster has been
bothered very much of late by
children who insist on going
to the office for mail every
time they think about it. Uncle
Sara has given us the privilege
to call for our mail any time
we please but we must not
abuse that privilege. This
has become a nuisance and
therefore the following rule
has Deen adopted: Unless the
pupils have access to lock box-
es, they must not call for their
mail as long as they are under
the jurisdiction of their teach-
ers, except by special permis-
sion which shall be granted on
request of the parents. This
rule is intended to inconven-
ience no one; should it do so.
please notify the superintend-
Call at our store and see
what a nice premium we will
give you for the largest bill of
goods purchased of us on next
Sale Day.—J. M. Hicks.
