"In ability, industry and courage, and as a debater on the floor
of Congress, Reavis of Nebraska, ranks with the best men who have
entered this body during my twenty years of service."
HON. JAMES R. MANN,
Republican Leeader in Congress.
"No man should be elected to the House to gratify his ambition.
All members should be elected for the good of the country.
"It is an unwise performance for any district to change repere
sentatives at short intervals.
"The best rule, it seems to me, is for a district to select a man
young enough to grow, with at least fair capacity, industrious, honest,
energetic, sober and courageous, and keep him here so long as he dis
charges his duties faithfully and well. Such a man will gradually rise
to high position and influence in the House.
HON. CHAMP CLARK,
Speaker of the House.
Mr. Reavis has served in Congress one session. We feel that his
record fairly entitles him to a second term.

DOES PROHIBITION REDUCE CRIME?
We herein submit the evidence of what it has done elsewhere.
The following comparison of the decrease in the number of arrests
the first month under prohibition in Iowa is good evidence:

Below is given a comparison of the number of arrests in several

the same six months the last year of the open saloon in that state:

The evidence is abundant to show beyond a reasonable doubt,
that PROHIBITION DOES REDUCE CRIME, as is shown by the
public records in the states of Iowa, Colorado and Arizona.

People are sometimes slow to
recognize true merit, and they cannot
be blamed, for so many have been
humbugged in the past. The experi
ence of many Plattsmouth residents,
expressed publicly through newspa
pers and other sources, places Doan's
Kidney Pills on a firm foundation
J. L. McKinney, Granite street,
Plattsmouth, says: "Doan's Kidney
Pills, procured from the Crescent
Pharmacy, are the best medicine I
ever used for disordered kidneys.
Whenever I have had occasion to take
them they have never failed to give
the best of results." (Statement
given April 10, 1912.)
On February 22, 1916, Mr. Mc
Kinney said: "I am ready to back
up what I have said before regarding
my experience with Doan's Kidney
Pills. I have never found anything
equal to them for lame back and a
