On last Sunday the congregation of
one of our ehiiiohes, who hud iis-ein-bled
for the usual Sunday worship,
woie somewhat surprised and exed to
sen eards pushed around to tlio inoin

vote for the piohlhltory amendment,
but also soliciting votes for the vari
ous candidates who aio seeking public

his duty, or that he is in any way mule
inf himself popular with the members
we tear thai he is mistaken. If he
thinks this way of soliciting assistance
for his favorite candidates or causes
is proving ell'eelive, we fear thai lie

Reflections on the Campaign
Election is over nnd we must now
turn our attention to the every day
problems of life. KcRnrdless of who
nave been victorious it is our solemn
duty to exercise u forgiving spirit, to
support the government and to main
tain peace und friendship.
Kvery minister wns u man nnd a
citizen before he became u preuchei
nnd when lie became such he did not
lose his manhood or citizenship.
The world is entitled to our honest
opinion touching the social and moral
welf-ire of the state and when nnv
group of citizens are deprived of the
right to express their honest thought
the world is the loser.
History has suffered in the past be
cause only those who have had wealth
nnd piestige have been allowed to
have und express an opinion, while the
voice of the oppressed masses was un
heard. Politics and booze has been given
free range of expression, while the
pulpit and the .school have been cen
sored. A pieacher who merely serves a re
ligious corporation for the sake of
Securing a living and forgets the lar
ger service lie owes humanity is n
weakling nnd a moral failure. A min
ister sho.uld express the thought of
(iod on every great issue for he i
an ambassador of Heaven and a ser
vant of Immunity.
Some men declared during the cam
paign they would fight the Dry
Amendment because tho preachers- re
fused to endor.se candidates whose
sympathies were Known to be o" the
side of the liquor interests und who
teceived the support of the breweries.
Such men are looking for an excuse
for wrong-doing. A man that vote
for spite is destitute of patiiotism
and principle und more dangerous to
society than nn anarchist.
To set up artificial political and re
ligious distinctions and quarrel over
these imaginary boundary lines is ut
ter folly. Service to humanity con
stitutes the purest patriotism nnd the
best religion. Kvery kingdom, em
pire, und lepublic on earth is a part
of a universal moral government.
Pure religion consists in understand
ing tlie principles of moral govern
ment nnd applying them to the af
fairs of the universe. Pure religion
is pure morality. It must bo evident
to every thinker not confused by sec
tarian jargon, that politics, the science
of human government, is a branch of
moral government and a part of pure
religion. The notion that a man can
separate his politics and religion is
to deny that a man has either politics
or religion. No man can he a true
servant of fiod and ignore the inter
ests of mankind, or pass bj in silent
contempt the efforts of the race for
moral and social improvement. Kvcrv
true Chii-dian is v si'icere politi-ian,
for politic-t i a part of all geno'tie re
lip.ion. The man who, through fenr
or : nibition to serve some sect or par
ty. Iip- failed in this great ctisis de
nes to be forgotten. Tho time wi'l

There is a Real Difference
Cream of tartar, derived from grapes,
is used in Royal Baking: Powder because
it is the best and most healthiul ingredient
known for the purpose.
Phosphate and alum, which are de
rived from mineral sources, are used in
some baking powders, instead of cream of
tartar, because they arc cheaper.
If you have been induced to use baking
powders made from alum or phosphate,
use Royal Baking Powder instead. You
will be pleased with the results and the
difference in the quality of the food.

dry majority would exceed fl.OOO. At
the same time tho early figures showed
that Wilson seemed certain to carry
Nobraska. The pull of Wilson tended
to help Hitchcock and Ncvillo, while
tho strong dry voto wns favorablo for
Kennedy an,-. Sutton. Until more
