THE FIZZ GONE OUT OF WET
The solemn seriousness of prohibi
tion at last is impressing itself upon
number of persons who, for awhile,
thought it a joke. In fact, quite a
series of jokes, some of them pass
able and others impossible, were
sprung by the .humorists. The stage
rhymesters: and balladists for a short
time got a hand on their quips and
songs. Many of them and a large
part of the sympathetic audiences
believed that prohibition was only
a temporary restriction.
As late as last summer there were
many men in Washington who were
willing to bet that one of the old
parties would declare against prohi
bition and that the country would
unanimously approve it. When even
the democratic convention evaded
the issue, there came a realization
that prohibition was. with us for all
Tho next attorney general, Mr,
Daugherty, has announced that he
will insist on strict enforcement of
the Volstead act. This knocks the
props from under thoso who still
had hopes. ,
It Is not our purpose to discuss
the question of prohibition, for- it
was threshed out pretty well In tho
thirty years' campaign that culmin
ated in t'he dry law, but we feel
it is time to caution those
who persist in the belief that there
may.be a repeal of' tho amendment
or modification of the Volstead act
that they are wasting time and ener
gy, Thero will bo bootlogging for
a number of years, Tho supply of
liquor in the United States will last
for ten years, it Is estimated. That
ft is being hold rather tightly now
is attested by the fact that bootleg
gers can obtain little of it. The
bottleggers are peddling fake con
coctions under fake labels. A label
factory was discovered, in Cleveland
recently. It was printing all the old
familiar labels under which whisk?
was sold. Somo of the stuff is com
ing under "Irish Whisky" labels is
So, as tlmo passes, tho "old stuff"
will bo more closely treasured and
moro of the worthless liquid will bo
found in the hands of tho bootleg
gers. In another year it hardly will
be worth while for the revenue of
ficers to arrest a bootlegger.
Then, too, the home brow artists
are becoming weary. It is quite a
bit of trouble to stew oneself over a
kettle of brew for two or three days
to obtain only enough to get a trifle
of a kick.
Those who honestly opposed pror
hibition -are. doomed to accept it. It
makes no difference under what cir
cumstances the amendment was
passed, the fact remains that It is
the law of the land and there is no
earthly use of trying to have it re
scinded. A lot of good energy that could
be directed to useful pursuits Is be
ing wasted by opponents of prohibi
tion and it is for their benefit that
thia advice is given.
The fizz is gone out of the Issue;
the jokes are falling flat, and. there
is but one thing to do wet our
whistles with Adam'g ale and UK
the situation as philosophically as a
parched throat will permit, Miami
OLD GUARD DRINKS WATEIl
The dinner of the Old Guard held
last evening in Delmonico's, In
celobration of tho ninety-fifth anni
versary of that organization, was,
in tho words of Major Edward H.
Snydor, tho commanding officer, a
yory sad affair. For tho first tlmo
in tho history of tho Old Guard
its toasts were drunk In mineral
water. Tho Eighteenth amendment
was sovoral times feelingly referred
to, and when tho guardsmen, voter
ans of a hundred bottles no, battles
lifted their mineral water, tho
band played "How Dry I Am". ana
tho drums were muffled.
Former Governor Whitman was
tho principal speaker or tho even
ing. He made a prohibition address.
He said that whllo some of tho man
datory restrictive provisions of tno
prohibition law wore disagreeable,
tho law represented tho deliberate
will of tho American people. Mem
bers of tho Old Guard might . not
agroo, ho said, but ho believed that
the Americans were determined that
the saloon muct go.
"This proposition," continued Mr.
Whitman, "when submittod to tho
people, has never been defeated.
Now, to say that it was put over
on the people is' so silly that it is
laughable. For you men, whether
or not you would like to take a
drink, to say this, for anybody to
say so is to show that you or any
body else does not know what ho Is
talking about.'' Now York Exchange.
A Brain Can't Work Right
On Thin, Watery Blood
It jtake Iron to make Strong:, Forceful,
Many a capable .intelligent man falls
just short of success; nearly "geits
thoro" but not quite simply because
he lacks sufllclent iron In his blood to
give him tho physical strength and
power to furnish tho proper forco to
his brain and tho "stay thero" strength
to his "will." A brain cannot do its
work rght think the thoughts that
win on thin weak watery .blood any
moro than a locomotivo can pull a
big train of cars with a weak smolder
ing fire under, its boiler.
When your blood Is starving for
iron no mere tonics nor stimulants, can
put you right. You must have iron,
forwithout Iron your blood' loses .Its
power to chan go food into Uving tissue
and nothing you eat does tho proper
amount of good. You do not get the
full strength out of it. To get iron you
must eat the husks of grains and the
peels and skins of fruits and vegetables
as our forefathers did or take a little
organic iron from time to time and eat
moro such iron-containing foods as
spinach and apples, . But be sure the
iron you take is organic Iron and not
metallic or mineral iron which people
usually take. Metallic iron is iron Just
as It comes from the action of strong
acids, on small pieces of iron, and is
therefore an entirely different thing
from organic iron.
Organic iron Is like tho Iron In your
Magnetic Meat with the Fowcr and
blood and like tho iron in spinachpjf
lentils and apples. It may bo had
from your druggist undor tho name oi
Nuxated Iron, Nuxated Iron represents"
organic Iron In such highly condensed
form- that ono dose of It Is estimated
to be approximately equivalent ln
organic iron content) to eating one
half quaTt of spinach, one quart of
green vegetables or half a dozen apples.
It's like taking extract of beef instead,,
of eating pounds of meat.
To prove to yourself what Nuxated
Iron will do, get your doctor to take
a- specimen of your blood and make a-"blood-count"
of your red Corpuslcs,
then take Nuxated Iron -for a month
and have a new "blood-count" made
and seo how your red blood corpuscles
have increased and how much stronger
and better you feel; seo how the color
has come back to your cheeks, how
steady and strong your nerves have
Over 4,000,000 people annually are
using Nuxated Iron. It will not injure
the teeth nor disturb the stomach. Your
money will bo refunded by tho manu
facturers if you do not obtain perfectly,
satisfactory results. Beware of substi
tutes. Always insist on having genuine
organic iron Nuxated Iron. JLook for
tho letter N I on every tablet. Sold by
