party, without exception, expressed
his utter surprise on seeing the pro-
ducts of the country. All, with one
accord, said that they were pleased
with the outlook and were intensely
interested. Their purposes were
to look over to proposed route of the
Colorado, Hereford & Gulf railroad.
They left Tuesday afternoon for
their homes, carrying with them a
good report of the Hereford country.
Mr. and Mrs. Lipscomb Entertain.
Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Lipscomb en-
tertained at their home in honor of
Miss Ingalls Gyles last Saturday
evening. In the reception hall where
the color scheme of red was earned
out, Miss Hattie Shirley presided at
the Punch bowl. In the early part
of the evening Miss Pattie Estes
sang "Absent," after which all en-
gaged in a contest, "nuts to crack,"
with much enthusiasm. Misses Shir-
ley and Witherspoon proved to be
the champion thinkers. In the dining
room which was beautifully decorated
with Shasta daisies, ferns and sweet
peas, a four course lunch was served.
Misses Gregg and Mason gave? few

"I am aware that there is a pre-
judice against any man engaged in
the the manufacture of alcohol. I
believe from the time it issues from
the coiled and poisonous worm in the
distillery until it empties into the
hell of death, dishonor and crime,
that it is demoralizing to everybody
that touches it, from the source to
where it ends. I do not believe^that
anybody can contemplate the sub-
ject without being prejudiced againrt
the crime. All we nave to do is to
think of the wrecks on either side of
the stream of death, of the suicides,
of the insanity, of the poverty, of
the destruction of the little children
tugging at the breast of weeping and
despairing wives asking for bread,
of men of genius it has wrecked, the
men struggling with imaginary ser-
pents produced by this devilish
thing; and when you think of the
jails of the almshouses, of the asy-
lums, of the prisons and of the scaf-¡
folds on either hand, I do not won-
der that every thoughtful man is
prejudiced against this vile stuff
"It breaks the father's heart, be-
reaves the doting mother, extin- ¡
guishes natural affection, erases love
blots out ñlial attachments, and1
blights parential hope and brings
premature aee in sorrow to the erave.
It produces weakness, not strength ;
sickness not health ; death, cot life.
It makes wives widows, children or-
phans, fathers fiends, and all pau-
pers. It feeds rheumatism, nurses
gout, welcomes epidemics, invites
cholera, imports pestilence and em-
braces consumption. It covers the
land with misery, idleness and crime,
i It engenders controversies, fosters
quarrels and cherishes riots. It
crowds your penitentiaries and fur-
nishes victims to the scaffold. It is
the blood of the gambler, the ele-
ment of the burglar, the prop of the
highwayman and the support of the
midnight incendiary. It counten-
ances the liar, respects the thief,
esteems the blasphemer. It violates
obligations, innocence. It violates
obligations, reverences fraud, hon-
ors infamy. It defames benevolence,
hates love, scorns virtue and inno-
cence. It incites the father to
butcher his helpless offspring and
the child to grind the patricidal axe.
It burns up men, consumes women,
defests life, curses God and despises
Heaven. It suborns witnesses, nur-
ses perfidy, defiles the jury-box and
stains the judidial ermine. It bribes
i voters, disqualifies votes, corrupts
j electiocs, pollutes our institutions
and endangers the government. It
degrades the citizen, debases the
1 legislator, dishonors the statesman
and disarms the patriot. It brings
shame not honor; terror, not safety ;
despair, not hope ; misery, not hap-
piness ; and with the malevolence of
a fiend, calmly surveys its frightful
desolation, and unsatiated with havoc
it poisons felicity, kill peace, ruins
morals, wipes out national honor,
then curses the world and laughs at
its ruin. It does that and more—it
