Englcman'a View of It.
Norfolk , Nob. , Oct.I. . Keillor News :
I liiivo bouti reading the letter of Mr.
Aldrloh in reply to Mr. Motcalfo , and ,
lllio Mr. Aldrlcli , I liiivo no nso for
JJnhlmanlsm , and I believe Ihla to bo
Iliu Huntlinent of thousands of domo-
crntR In Nebraska. And while I am
o | > I > o.Hi'il to Dnhlmunlsm , I am alHo
opposed to prohibition on principle ,
and fufiller for Uio reiiHon that It has
lirove an nliHolutn failure where It IIIIH
boon tried. It confiscates thousands
of dollars worth of property , which
IH practically useloHS for any other
jturporio. It creates a system of spies
who make merchandlHe of their oath ,
mid their appetite grown by what they
I'eed upon. The present liquor laws
of Nebraska are about the best t'tat
could bo devised , and all It needs IB
1o enforce them. If the present law
cannot be enforced , then you cannot
hope to enforce a prohibition law. If
wo would bo honest with ourselves
wo might prollt by the experiences ot
the past and ask ourselves the ques
I Ion , "lias prohibition been a success
in states where It has been tried1
juid the answer is most emphatically ,
"No. " Many prohibition people liken
the prohibition question to the slavery
question and they hope that by coir
tinned agitation to dually succeed It :
wiping out the liquor tralllc , but Ii
this they are mistaken for all huinnr
nature revolts at shuery and humai
bondage , while thinking men look
upon the taking of n glass of beer as
entirely Innocent. Mankind believes
In temperance , but not In prohibition
Christ did not attempt by force to con
trol man's appetite , and man 1ms fall-
od wherever he has tried It. 1 think
It was unfortunate that Shallonbergor
was defeated , but all the same I want
to predict that no matter who Is elect-
fU this fall , wo shall find that prohibi
tion Is n plant that will never bloom
in Nebraska. Respectfully ,
J. 0. Engolniun.

The Safe and Easy Way Is the Best
To do housework thoroughly takes
lime and strenglh , but there's no need
of using more of either than Is actu
ally required. Save a little of both.
Half an hour saved hero and there
makes a big difference at the end of
the day. Throw away all your old
fashioni-d cleaning compounds that
( ontaln caustics , acids , alkali sand
grit. Use Old Dutch Cleanser for all
the things for which you formerly used
scouring bricks , washing powders and
scouring soaps. You Know what these
things are the cleaning , scrubbing ,
scouring and polishing you usually
dread. Try Old Dutch Cleanser. See
how it digs down and brings forth a
spotlessly clean Bin-face with half the
work you ordinarily put into cleaning.
