Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co.. Cents : In renly to
vour letter I will say that my experience with
Kendall's Spavin Cure has been very satisfac
tory indeed. Three or four years ago I procur
ed a bottle of your agent, and with it cured a
horse of lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became very lame, and I turn
ed him out for a few weeks when he became
better ; but when I put him on the road he got
worse, when I discovered that a ring-bone was
forming. I procured a bottle of Kendall's
Spavin Cure, and with less than a bottle cured
him so tlrnt he is not lame, neither can the
bunch be found.
Respectfully Yours, F. N. Granokk.

For President of tie United States,
GEN. JAMES A. GARFIELD.
m QJZ OHIO.
Monday night, July 19th, the mass meeting, under the auspices of the
Red Ribbon Club, was addressed by the editor of the Herald. The audi
ence was a large and appreciative one. The lecture was plain, practical and
pointed, free from balderdash or attempt at oratory, yet delivered in a forci
ble and pleasing manner, and we gladly
the editor protest. On the whole, the
closing up with a grand good collection for the Library fund.
EXTRACTS FROM J. A. MACMURPnY'S LECTURE "PREVENTION OF
Published by Request.
"Would you do away with law entirely then -asks some one?"
By no means, a good law, at the proper time, properly enforced may be a
great cure for intemperance; but I am not now speaking of a cure but the
preventation of Intemperance before it comes to the stage when panaceas
You would not expect me in one short Lecture to exhaust a subject that
has occupied the minds and thoughts of men and women for years and upon
which tomes have been written. I am not now discussing the benefits or de
merits of a Prohibitory Law.
That comes in at a later stage as either a cure or a punishment; for even
if law be looked upon as a preventative, it comes too late in most
cases to act with any degree of certainty and effect. We need the preven
tion, the education of the young 1.0 lead up to the enactment and enfore
meut of the law.
The education of the Common schools should do much to prevent the
spread of Intemperance, and it seems to me, might in this way.
Of late years there has been too much namby-pambyism about the Gov
ernment of scholars in public schools by teachers.
If a teacher whips in the least, an ill-mannereJ, unruly and wilful child,
a great hou-doo is created about it. The parent or the guardian talks about
the law, in big italics, and threatens what he will do next time if any teach
er touches his child. If teachers now, as they used to should interfere with
the manners or morals f their scholars out of school .hours, he or she would
have to be strong in their position or "the Board" would be obliged to oust
them. This sentiment has been growing I am sorry to say. It should be cor
rected by wholesome public criticism.
There is not a man over 40 in this house probably, that was not flogged
unmercifully sometimes by his teacher and even the big girls had to tafce it,
occasionally. Will one of them say here
for it mentally, physically or morally?
Manv of the older members of society will remember their father savincr:
'Go to school, my Boy and mind the teacher. If you cut up and he whips you
don't come home to me to growl, iov I'll giye you another." How seldom is
that said now, on the contrary I have heard parents send children to school
with the injunction, that if the "Teacher licked 'em just let me know and I'll

authority over the child in the school and out, and the means of enforcing

And in no way can the cause of Temperance be more surely advanced
than by this early teaching of self control, real temperance and self-pride
that scorns to be degraded or pauperized.

You can get plenty of Temperance men to talk to you of these evils, in

conducted and I never heard any sensible man make any.
It is more in the light of political economy, which is my forte, if I have
an', that I shall treat of saloons to-night, and from a historical point of
view as bearing on this question.
The Saloon, for the sale of intoxicating drinks exclusively, is of modern
growth comparatively, and of foreign Importation entirely. Its name indi
cates its origin, it is of French extraction and like many other fashions and
habits introduced into this country from there might well be dispensed with.
Where I was brought up in New Jersey, 80 years ago, there was not a
Saloon in existence, 25 years ago, they were scarce, and yet it was a liquor

It was sold almost exclusively in and from the bar of the old fashioned
Its use and abuse was greatly curtailed thereby because the old fash
ioned Tavern-keeper was generally a man of property, and means, of good
standing in the community, frequently owned a fine farm or ran a store in
connection with. his tavern; and he would not sell to any body and every
body. It was understood that the few samples he kept were for the use of
travellers mostly-supposed to be tired with a long days ride, or not used to
the water, or having the colic from sampling too many peach orchards or water-melon
patches as they come abong.
There was no tempting array of bottles on t he shelf and grainod walnut
or mahogany counter.
. The whisky was kept in a little corner cupboard, as a rule, with two
common tumblers by the side of the bottle. The Landlord carried the keys
to the cup-board there was no bartender and unly those whom he saw fit,
and who could take a dram and "go of!" got anything out of our old fashion
In short, he did not have to sell Liquor for a business and to make bread
and butter for his family as the Modern Saloon Keeper does and consequent
