OMIUlTKO HV MUS. J.M. WISK -
To whom all communications for this depart
liu-iit should he addressed.
In response ts) our query of last week
us to what, the temperance people of
Plattsmoutli are doing, the Omaha
Ilernld with ii a usual pernicious at
tetiij ta i.t hiirciism, u plies: "Yithout
detinite knowledge of v. I at the tem
perance people of l'l.iltsitiouth are do
ing, we venture tho s aieiuent that if
they are doing Miiylhinjf on il.t-.i old
line of action, they are again proving
to the observing people tiiut they
know nothing of the true uietlnul of
lessening the evils of alcoholic intem
perance in the lainl."
We all know I lie tu.coinpl utilising
liostility of I lie 1 1 -i tow ard the
leuipeiance cuu' ; lul me we to fold
our liands supineiy l o.iuse our "line
of act Ion" di.t a i. nt iu t-i Willi the ap
probation of Hie Ut-raM? Not so; our
line of action, while it may not he the
best one, ban i-aVed to us w me of our
beat citizens, while others who have
adopted the line recommended by the
IIuul.l, and olht r anil prohibitionists,
are fast drinking themselves into the
oblivion of hopeless degradation.
What we wish to do is to strike blows
at the root of evil. It is not diilicult
to trace to its origin the causes of the
Polii. -Met tier tragedy that has just
happened in our midst; do we wisli for
a repetition of this terrible crime? No
one will answer jes; hut are we not
liable every day and every hour to the
enactment of a tragedy fully as dread
ful when men w hose brains are soaked
and half crazed w ith alco! ol, are fur
nished with what will make them tit
for any i!i ed iheir crazy fancy may
suggest. Are such men lesponsible
for murder, or is the sentence just that
will nan a man fur deeds com in it ted
under the Influence of musion induced
by the legalized a.tle of p'lisouV
Brethren and sisters, "our line of ac
tion" was a good one when we were
working every day for those who had
fallen by the way; but we let our en
ergies relax; we have been idle all
these months, and now we w ant to
shake off the lethargy tltat has irept
ii.to out mi-lst, and go to the rescue f
iho-ie who are -'in the dei ths."
We huve had many spauiou- urgu
inents and a greet deal has been writ
ten and said in our state against pro
hibitory law. We came across the
following good reasons in a Cnicago
piper the other day why our state
should have this pro'ection. They
answei to the challeng "Is Prohibition
is a physical evil iiitlic.td upon the
citizens of the stale. Nor is this fact
changed in the least by the considera
tion thet many are in love with it
and choose to have it. It is not the
less an app illng physical evil, resting
down heavier and heavier ewry year.
It Is the prolific source of disease of
the worst charact'-r, of bod v and mind.
Il is a physical scourge upon the na
tion, producing sufferings unparalled
by any plague that ever swept the
land. Yellow fever, small-pox. chol
era all of whch are subject to sani
tary legislation have never iuilicted
such physical sufferings upon the peo
pie as has the liquor business.
We deemed the lebellion, which
cost the country half a million lives
and treasures untold, cruel, causeless,
to be legislated against, and put down
at all costs.
Yet here is a business carried on in
the States, which lias surpassed in its
depths of physical woe, in its more
cruel anguish, all that was suffered on
the baltle-tields of the four year's
2. This liquor business is ' a social
evil. It is a menace to the republic
It strikes at the family, thrusts bru
tality into the holiest spot on earth,
loads down the family with poverty
ignorance and vice. An a social evil
it pushes its way through all grades
and ranks. Beginning at the founda
tion, it works up and out in every way
I speak of the business as such. The
manufacture and sale of it are thor
oughly unified for their deadly work
The two branches of the business exist
for each other, and can not be separa
ted in any discussion which deals w ith
their deadly results. .
3. It is a political evil, against which
the law is invoked. Whatever degrades
and brutalizes the citizen is a political
evil. It disqualifies men for the fran
chise, puts them in the market for po
lilical barter and side. The 4.000 ta
loons in Chicago have robbed the bal
lot-box of its holy significance, and
transformed it into a machine for po
litical knavery. They have made it
the instrument of burdening t..e prop
erty and industries of the city w:tb
oppressive taxation and that too. in
the interest of lawlessness and crime.
This business, blood; with crime, has
thi ust its stained hands into the legis
lative halls into executive departments

KKsI'KCT THE BODY.
A writer in the Hearth and Home,
has some sensible ideas on the subject
of b.xlily health, he Fays;
"Ui sped the body. Give it what it
requires, and no more. l)on't puree
its ea's, strain its eyes or pinch its
feet ; don't roast it by a hot Gre all
day, and smother it under heavy bed
covering at night ; don't put it in a
cold draft on slight occasions, and
don't nurse or pet it to death; don't
dose it with doctor's stuffs, and above
all, don't turn it into a wine cask or a
chimney ; let it be wairanted not to
smoke, from the time your manhood
takes possession. Respect the body;
don't overwoik, over-rest or over
love il ; and never del ase it, but be
able to lay down when you are done
with it, a well-worn but not a mis
used thing. Meantime, treat it as well
as you would your pet horse or hound,
and my word for it, though it will not
jump to China at a bound, you'll find
it a most excellent tiling to have es
pecially in the country.
It is precisely two decades since
Thanksgiving lay became a Nation
al institution. It had existed for
nearly two centuries and a half as a
local holiday, a strictly Yankee notion.
It was born, originally, of gratitude
for a little corn, raised after a year of
famine, but in 18W , it broadened into
a recognition of the divine in human
events. So far from being adopted by
the Nation in gratitude for a specific
blessing, it was established at the very
time when the cotmtiy was in the
depths of aflliclion, and when the
probb in of bread had been almost lost
sight of in t he agony of apprehension
for the Nation itself. The Union
cause had suffered defpat the polls.
State after state which had been con
fidently counted to uphold the Federal
government in ils desperate struggle
for existence had, on the contrary af
forded aid and comfort to the enemy.
Then, as twenty years later, many dis
tinct causes conspired to a common
political catastrophe. Upon the field
of battle also disasters had inllowed
each other in swift sucevssion.
One cannot contemplate, wilhout
admiring awe, the little band of pil
grims gathering in the bleak Novem
ber tj lift their hearts iu solemn grat
tude to god for their first harvest, but
there is something far more sublime
in the contemplation of a great nation
taking the darkest hour of its exist
ence as the occasion for establishing a
regular day of thanksgiving, to be ob
served iinrnemorially, and that such a
time was selected was not accidental.
When Mr. Lincoln issued that first
National thanksgiving proclamation
he did so, profoundly conscious of the
daikness which pervaded the land.
He was no optimist with a Mark Tap
ley disposition to make light of trouble
His appreciation of the gloomy side
of events was intense. That great
state paper, the first of a series, was
an expression of the fundamental
truth accepted in common by the A
merican people, without legard to the
rel'Kious creeds or scientific opinions.
Differ how we may in the detailed
statement of views, we .all concede
There's a divinity which shapes our etuis.
Hough hew them how we will.
That great central truth, apart from
all speculation in igard to divine
personality, is t o deeply rooted in
human conviction to Le shaken by tbe
current happenings, however calami
tous, and is the bi.sis of all intellii'ent
and sincere gratitude.
If an attempt had been made twenty
years ago today to so far forecast the
future as to point out the good which
would come of prevailing evil," the ef
fort would have borne little, if any,
resemblance to what actually occurred.
The good in the evil of the present
hour is equally inscrutable. Idle are
all efforts of that kind. It is perti
nent, however, to the present occasion
to recall thf fact that the country
suffered no harm from the clouds then
in the horizon. Rebellion was crushed
out none the leas effectually because
rebel sympathizers were elected lo of
fice in 1&62, and the Federal army was
weakened by the jealousies of the of
ficers. Such sympathies and such
jealousies were utterly bad, just as the
hates ami jealousies of the present
day are, but the ends were shaped in
public interest, despite the hewings,
and hackings of. malicious hatchets.
Eighteen hundred and sixty-two, to
change the figure, had its apples of
gratitude, and they were not turned to
ashes by subsequent events, nor need
there be any fear now that the fruit
of gladness norne by any heart of to
day will, with the ripening of time.

There ia a braver knighthood and a
better chivalry come upon the world
in these latter years. Tho courage of
the people is "omelhing grand, and
something wonderful to think of. The
Hands are not more brawny, the mus
cca of the limbs are not more as steel,
but the heads are clearer and the
hearts injarger and better hope. Con
fidence in man, mini's confidence in
himself, was never of such strength as
now. Therefore than now there never
was such sense of secuiity, such as
surance of good as the harvest of the
future. The government is reversed,
is overturned, and the self conscious
strength of manhood fears no evil.
