The Makers of a Well Known Churn write:
"Wc have been often asked by dairymen: ' What is the very
best sonp to use to properly cleanse dairy utensils?' Wc have
invariably replied, the ' Ivory,' but as for giving specific directions
for washing dairy utensils, it is really summed up in making them
thoroughly clean. Boiling water must be used, and that, in con
nection with Ivoky Soap, will thoroughly cleanse and deodorize
the wood, leaving it clean and sweet for further use. Any daiiy
utensils half cleaned will spoil the delicate aroma of 'gilt edge
butter,' which may be perfect in other respects."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be 1 just as good as the 'Ivory')"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack .the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. As1! for "lvo-y" Soap and insist upon getting it.

Ask ycur dealer for
Tf ado for UlooruBburg ana Vicinity Supplied by
More Talk on the Amendment.
Dear Slit?: In lenly to my friend
A. J. 1). on tlic amendment iiurRtion, I
am surprised that any sano person en
tertains such ideas, much less advocates
them. JIls entire argument is ono of
entire exaggeration misconstruction
and misrepresentation, which I am ablo
to and will prove. Tho eloquent Jnek
sonian is undoubtedly laboring under a
greafrnistake. When ho undertakes to
mix 'whiskey with Christianity, ho
might as well attempt to mix water
with oil, they are as far different as
dav and niuht. which is readily seen bv
daily' observations. The causes and
ellccts of each make them in direct op
position ta oach other, for instance,
Christianity elevates, improves civiliza
tion, protects society, is honorable, puts
happiness into every household, de
creases crimes nrd pauperism, lowers
taxation, and establishes peace in our
country. While upon the other hand
whiskoy dermics debases, lowers
civilization far below tho brnto crea
tion, destroys society, is disgusting,
and- dishonorable, forces misery
wretchedness and poverty into every
household, is tho father of crime and
pauperism, increases taxation, and es
tablishes despotism, anarchism, and
ruination to our land, and more thau
this, it cuts down youth in its vigor,
manhood in its strength, and age in its
weakness; it makes wives widows, chil
dren orphans, fathors fiends nnd all
paupers, producing weakness, not
strength, siokness not health, death not
life. Tho tree is known by its fruits.
Now it is an established theory that,
they are in direot opposition to each
other, and I think wo will all frankly
confess -that Christianity is for jjood,
aud for tho cause of good, as this is its
finly mission, and as they, ar.i oppo
nents, then whiskey must necessarily
be an ovil, and for tho causo of evil.
Having fully proved tho above fact I
uphold that ministors of the gospil
have a perfect right to preach it from
tho pulpit, on tho ground that it is an
ovil, and tho cause of a irreat many
evils, nnd I ask you if it is not tho
uty of every minister in advocating
tho word of God, whether from tin
ulnit or elsewhere, to instruct sulTer-
nc humanity how to bo iotd, and to
despise evil of every character. Tho
Bible is full of such doctrine, and the
.ord not only placed Adam and Eve
n tho garden of Eden, pure nnd with
out, sin, but lie warned tnem agmnst
evil, ''tho forbidden fruit. They had
but one temptation placed before them
and yet tho Lord interfered. Now
tro the nrenchers of to-day to change
tho plan of preaching as laid down in
tho word of God ami as taught by our
aviour, and adopt a new system, to
please tho rum trafhet To entertain
such an idea is folly and ridiculous; it
U a duly they owo to God, to preach
against rum and all kinds of evil even
t they tto ottend s"tne wnero ine snoe
tits, for the devil himself is angry m
Christianity. It is said he goeth
iround like a roaring Hon seeking
whom ho may devour. It wai not
necessary lor l am to say "woe is mo
t I preach, not proniuition, neitnor
id ho say ''woo is mo if I preach not
murder, idolatry Jfco." and yet you ad
mit that these are ,eviW, for when he
said "woe is me if I preach not tho
gospel" it included all these.
The person in question says the
amendment party publishes some very
ullv llnncs. remaps no may tuink
tho following is very silly, for example:
tV young man ripening into manhood,
is paronts havo botti taken great m-
erest, care, and prnto in rearing mm,
have expended tho larger portion ol
their hard earnings in educating and
mvint: him a start in his future lite, he
leaves homo a pure and modest young
man, finally ho is thrown among stran
gers, and his surrounding-' now aro ot
i far dilterent nature. Having no pa
ronts now to consult, ho associates
with comrades who are in the habit of
Irinking and occasionally becoming
trunk; the temptation being very
great and forgetting all about home,
he yields and becomes a drunkard. In
ono of his drunken spells ho commits
murder nnd is tried and sentenced to
hang. Just think of that for poor
father aud mother's hearts as they ap
proach the gallows on tho day of exe
cution. Their hoarls at one day beom-
ng with joy over the future prospects of
their only sou, and u-day he in dnomed
to hang till ho is dead, ft'errtft", dead.
Did you over stop and think that you
might be placed in this simo position,
or there lias ueen many sucn instances.
In speaking ol our Saviour drinking
wine, admitting that he did, it was un
doubtedly pure wine, and no plaee in
tho word of God do we learn that
Jesus was ever drunk, or under the in.
Iluence of it, as it was pure, and he
allowed no impurities or unclean things
to enter his mouth, nor did he allow
such to pass from by mouth, and your
correspondent dfc hot say what this
wino was made Irom. oxc- pt at tlio
marriage feast in Cana of Galilee, he
mentions where he turned water into
wine. This clearly sho vs that ho took
tho purest thing possible to make it,
and such will not injuro nor intoxioato
any pi rson, but this was taken Ogu'ra-
ively solely tor tlio purpose ot per
forming a miracle, as was other mira-
ules ho performed. While here on
earth for instauce, th loaves and fishes,
curing the leper, maim to walk, healing
the siok, blind to see, ifco. We have
just as good right in our day to make
us" ot tneso otner miracus as we Have
of the 7ine mir iclo, for Solomon sild
"wino is a mocker and strong drink is
raging and who-iover is deceived thero
by is not wise." Again, "look not upon
the wino when it is red, for in tho end
it biteth liko a serpent nnd stingetl
liko an adder." Tlio Saviour undoubt
edly had not reforenco to wino made
tram water or to pure wiuo, uut to ter
monttid wine. This miracle tint ho
performed was not to advocate drink.
ing wine, but to show his power in all
tlio cases whero he performed thco
miracles. Wo ns prohibitionists would
not complain or object if tho wino of
tordnv was made as Christ made it
from puro water. This is what wo ad
vocate, that puro water or wine H Hie
only wholesome tiling tor man to drink
and thero would bo no need for li
censed houses and laws to govern the
samo, vve would nave lens lilla, pent
tentiaries, asylums, almshouses, mur
dererc, tlitivce, vagabonds, blackUe
drunkards, liiisoiy, poverty, wretched
ness, starvation, weepiiig, beaten aud
neglected mothers and homeless cbrld
Yonr correspondent also niserls that
tho Apostlo Paul in speaking to Timo
thy requests him thus, "Drink no lon
ger water, but n little wino for thy
stomach's sako and thy oft Infirmities."
The language of Paul itself shows it
was for medical use. Just hero a his
tory of wi, o in thoco days will explain
all. Tho translation of tho Hebrew
words, Fagin, means all kinds of wine
unintoxicating, and intoxicating,
Sliekar, sweet drink generally intoxi
oalirig, Alesis,. unferraonted, Mosek,
wino mixed with water or with drugs,
Kleouietx, fcrmonled but not intoxica
ting. 'I he translation of tho Greek
words, Onlos, all kinds of wine fermen
ted and iiufcrmcnted, Glookas, sweet
wino unfermented, Sikcra, sweet drink,
unintoxicating so you boo tho terra
wine is variously applied in the Bible,
fermented and unfermented, Intoxica
ting nnd unintoxicating, that among
tho Jowb, Grooks aud Uomans, there
were different kinds of unintoxicating
wines, that the samo still exists in
many eastern countries, and was ex
tensively used by tho ancients. You
can very readily sco tho Biblo informs
us that there was two kinds of wine
mado and used, tho same kind which
our diviuo master made and the Bible
sanctioned was unfermented, and tlio
other kind which tho Biblo condemns
was fermented wine, the -ono being
wholesome nnd the other poison
ous. The Biblo teaches us to abstain,
and abstinence is in accordance with
hodlth; it also contains warnings
against drunkenness, hibituul drinking,
and even drinking at all, as the follow
ing quotations show,' "who hath woe,
who hath sarroiv, who hath conten
tions, who hath babbling, who hath
wounds without oause, who hath red
ness of eyes, thoy that tarry long at the
wine, they that go to seek mixed wine,
look not thou upon tho wine when it is
red, when it givefh his color in the cup,
wnen it movelli itselt aright, at last it
biteth liko a serpent and stiugeth liko
an adder. Woe unto him that giveth
his neighbor dtink, that putteth thy
bottle to him, and raaketh bim drunk
en." So you sco that tarrying long at
the wine, drinking mixed wine, and
strong drink, and putting tho bottle to
Ins neighbors lips and making lum
drunken, aro clearly condemned.
1 admit we wore not put hero on
flowery beds of eaEe, but it is your in
terest, and my interest, to havo as fow
evils as is possible, to havo only such
ovils that arc impossible to blot out ot
existence, that it is our imperative duty
to eradicate any evil, sucti ns tin ono
mentioned, fiom tho catalogues of
crime. We havo enough temptations
to resist without nutting moro in the
land. We had better aband-jn some,
if wo cannot entiiely exclude it from
the country, wo desire the law to pro
hibit the mannfiicuiru nnd salo of it as
a beverage tho samo as it prohibits
murder. Murder is not legalized,
neither should rum be. Well, but they
my that you can't prevent their geiting
it, they will havo it, neither oan you
prevent murder for they will murder,
hut you can givo it all thu restriction
the law alTonls, as in the case of mur.
tier, and this will modity tlio crimes
that would bo perpetratod very much
It is ckiUhi it will euro the ten cent
drunkard, and this is tho worst enemy
to contend with. I admit that those
persons who havo tho means and facul
ties may get it from other states, hut
tho maioritv can not do this, and be-
eides' this, if we undertake to have all
the Htates act upon this amendment at
tho same time, it would nover otrry; It
must be accomplished by degrees, one
state at a tune, i es, but you iay
will not prohibit, it will to the samo
extent that other laws prohibit various
crimes, for example, you compare two
places, thu ono has a licensed house,
aud the other none. 1 know of suoh
places, and ray experience is, that in
places witiiout license tneoid oonurmed
drunkards will have it if they mn gut
it,btit tho young generation have grown
up to manhond, sober, industrious
honest and upright men, with scarcely
au exception. But the places having
iceni-o aro quite the reverse, the oh
confirmed drunkard always get it, and
three fourths of tho young mr,n have
net their fate, and are on tho down
ward roid to ruin. I appeal to you if
this is not tlio oao. l'laco tho ovil
and temptations beforo ttiein, and it
has its power, and a mighty ono too,
