PROMINENT MEN ON WHISKY
Several Opinicns of Great Leaders on
Injury Being Bone to World
by Liquor Habit.
The editor of McClura'i Magaslne
publishes the opinions of many noted
men on the subject of whisky. A few
of these follow:
"Joseph Chamberlain, the great Eng
lish statesman, says, of whisky;
" 'If there Is in the whole of this1
business any single encouraging fen j
tare, it Is bound to be found in the
gathering Impatience of the people at
the burden which they are about to1
bear, and their growing indignation
and sense of shame and disgrace
which this Imposes upon them The

our people, ami now they are awaiting

"The late Edward Everett Hale;
" 'If anybody will take charge of all
Boston's poverty and crime which re

Congregational church, of which I
have the honor to he the minister, will
alone take charge of nil the rest of

" ‘Tho liquor traffic is n cancer tn
society, eating out tho vitals and
threatening destruction, and all at
tempts to regulate it will not only
prove abortive, but will aggravate (be
evil. There must he no more attempts
to regulate the cancer. It must be
eradicated, not a root must be left be
hind; for, until this is done, all classes
must continue in danger of becoming
\letlins of strong drink.’
"Bishop Phillips Brooks:
" 'If we should sweep Intemperance
out of our country, there would he

Extra Tax and Hard Times Are Prov

MUCH PROFIT IN LIVESTOCK
More Money in Raising Animals
Than by Planting Legume Crops—
Humus Is Retained.
(By XV. SCOTT HICKOX.)
The limn who plants legumes solely
to turn under will, in the majority of
cases, get tired of it after a few years
because of the cost in seed, labor and
rent of land. He who grows legumes
and sells the tops for hay Is pumping
the mineral elements out of his land
In a most reckless manner and there
will come a time of reckoning after
a while. The writer is proud of the
fact that he belongs to the class of
men who plant legumes, make hay of
the top, extract the food values by
passing the hay through first-class
farm animals, returning more than
three-fourths of the material value
and practically all the humus back to
the soil, and during the progress of
the game trapping enough nitrogen
from the air to far more than balance
the small amount of phosphorous and
potash the young animals sold remove
from the farm. This, my friends, la
sane farming, proven such in many
lands and under various conditions.
