Jonas Teachout whoso 1mm faces tlio
highway a tnllo outside of UiIh town
allowed the circus wagon to paste up
pictures on three sides of tho liulldln
How ninny tickets for tho circus ho
Kot In exchange I do not know and It
lias nnthlu to do with tlio question
VVIint Im Niiyln Is thnt thorn pictures
lu my solemn belief shocked tho mor
als of this community fur worse than
as If ten saloons had been opened In
itho town The circus wagon Ih ugln
appronehln It Is creepln along In Its

of destruction lu Its path and If Him
Jtliln aint done Jonas Teachouts bnm
Will ngln be enwrapped In the allurln
colors of vice and degradation 1 move
pint It Is tho House of this ineotln nnd
of the community lu gluernl that Jo
uas be Btrugglod with
It nppcnrs to 1110 says Deacon
Bpooner ns Moses sat down that a
iplnt bns bin mado When Moses talks
of ullurln colors of vice and degrada
tion 1 seem to see before me them pic
tures of wlmon Junipln through paper
hoops However Id like to hear from
Silas Lapham I reckon hes Interest
ed In the mornl welfare of this com
I aint blamln Jonas tall says Si
las He got 112 deadhead tickets fur
the use of his barn and I dont believe
unybody was the wickeder fur It If a
ninu cant gnzo at circus pictures with
out goln away nnd Htealln a barT of
soft sonp then he aint no man Did
any wife run away from her husband
liecaiiHo of them pictures Did any
husband elope with tho hired gal be
cause of them
ThntH n plnt and I says Its u
plnt exclaims the deacon as he hus
tles about Them circus pictures was
on thnt barn fur two months but what
famly was busted up through their In
fluence Its fur Moses to specify
whar vice got Its toehold
I nlut saylu that any fannies was
busted up continues Moses but Im
talkln bout the glucrnl Influence on
glneml morality A circus picture Is
nuthlu but a picture but It suggests
lemonade and peanuts and whisky and
poker and belu out late nights They
aro like plzen Ivy You come across It
In the woods and It Is fair to look up
on and It seems to bo rooted lu Inno
cence and thrlvin lu morality You
handle It nnd you begin to Itch and
scratch nnd llml yourself plzened Like
n hydra headed sarplnt It lays In wait
to work destruction to the unwary I
hope this ineetln nnd this community
air with me nnd that It will be decided
to wrassle with Jonas Teachout
Moses didnt seem to make a plnt
on the peanuts nnd lemonade says
tho deacon as he scratches his ear
but he was powerful strong on that
plzen Ivy beln rooted lu Innoccuce I
kin almost see whar circus pictures
might influence me to go homo ami
pound my old cow with a sled stake If
Hhe didnt keep her tall still while I
iwas mllkin but Im wlllln to hear more
nrgyments Enos Williams you driv
by that barn twice n day all summer
How did them pictures a tree t you
Kot much different from a huskln
bee says Enos I didnt feel no
feelins of wickedness stealln oer me
but I did sort of make a fool of myself
I found a soft spot lu the barnyard and
tried to turn a handspring and fur
about two hours they thought my neck
was busted Im thluklu that hard elder
has more glneral lullueuco on giueral
morality In this community than cir
cus pictures
Its n plnt shouts the deacon ns
ho waves his cane on high Its a
plnt nobody kin git over Its hard
cider thats backin vice all over this
county and hlstln innocence over the
fence whenever they meet However
It may be that circus pictures also
I have their Iniluenco Moroh have you

Yes Kodnui was warned nnd Rod
