In tho wnr of 1812, between this

Troy, N. Y., n largo amount of pork

It was inspected by Samuel Wilson,
who was popularly known n "Uncle

It is now firmly embedded in tho

important events in tho history of tho

"Loc Cabin" have taken on renewed
force and vitality since their adoption
by Hon. II. II. Warner, of Safe Cure
fame, in the naming of two of his
great standard remedies, tho principal
ono known as Warner a .Log Cabin
Sarsaparilla. They are based upon
formula; so successfully used by our an
cestors in the euro of tho common ail
ments to which their arduous labors
rendered them liablo in tho good old
Locr Cabin days.
The names of Warder's Safo Cure,
likewise, will be held in high esteem,
as familiar as a household word, while

tho chapter and versa. I havo search
ed tho soripturos with tho aid of a
concordance and havo failed to Gud
it. Every person ought to bo exiro-
moly careful how they quote Holy
Writ. Never quoto from momory,
but from tho book. I found what I
think voti wanted to quote, but you er
red sadly. You will rind it in' Habak-
kuk21(i "woe unto mm tbat in vein
his neighbor drink, that putteth thy
bottlo to him and maketh him drunk
also." Now tho sin was not in drink
ing, for wino at that day was used as
a uoverago throughout tno ctviuzeu
world. But the ain was in using it to
excess, getting drunk, that is where
tho sin comos in to-day. Thero is no
sin attached to eating or drinking.
Tho Saviour Hays in Matthow 15 11
"not that which gocth into tho mouth
that defiloth a man, but that which

In purusmg the oolumns ot your

preachers in preaching prohibition.

have shown in my former letter that
prohibition w is not taught in the last
will and testament of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and for preachers to preach
that now, they are preaching another
gospel. What does the great Apostle
to the Gentiles say on that subiectf
Now listen to the words of the Hoi
Spirit "Though we, "the apostles'
or au angel irom neaven, preach any
other gospel unto you than that which
wo have preached unto you, let bim
bo accursed. Ah we said betore, so
say I now again, if any man preach
any other gospel noto you than that

Fearful responsibility. Yet wo have
men that say they are called and sent

women s tables and the W. V. 1. U,
In the namo of heavens what do
they want more than tho word of God?
Paul says in Hebrews -1-12 tbat the
word of God is quick and powerful
and sharper than any two edged

asunder of soul and spirit, and of the
-joints and marrow, and is a disccrner

Mr. Hes, what moro ia needed?
John, tbo ureal lerelator in summing
up Ins prophecy Hays: "ror 1 testify
nnt ) every man that hearelh the wonls
of ihU prophecy of this book. If any
man shall add unto theso things God
shall add unto him (he plagues thai
are written in this book, and if any man
shall take away from tho word" of the
book of this prophecy God shall take
away bis part out of the book of lift)
and one of the holy city, and from
the things which are written in this
book." Rev. 22-18 19. "For the
time will come when thoy will not en
dure sound doctrine, but after their
own lusts shall they heap to them
selves teachers, having itshing ears, and
they shall turn away their ears from
the truth, and shall be turned unto
fables '' Mr. Hess, it those times are
not upon U9 now as predicted by Paul,
then I pity the generation ou whom
they will fall. Wo have preachors
whoso ears are itching for notoriety
otitildrt of the gospel. Do yon know
what they wanit Power, not from on
hieh but from tho prohibition party,
and if through their influence the pro
hibilion party goes iuto power, they
will say to the leaders: "Sirs, wo havo
an nx to grind wo want you to uso
your influence for us and help us unitu
ohnrch and state.
How wonld you liko that, Mr. HessT
Then ou would havo to support the
sucoesMiil ehuron whether you believ
ed in thoir dogmas or not Secondly,
JUr. lio.is says, to successiuiiy preach
tbo gospel, sin in its various forms
should be preached to men. I believe
that. Now what is sinful in drinkingT
Why using it to excess, getting drunk.
The preachers duty is to tell bis bear
ers to be tomperato ic eating as well
as drinking. If they understand the
Soripture they will so teach. Ha say
thero is no middle ground to occupy in
this question, men an men are extre
mists, then aocordiug to his teaching
(Jurist aud the uoiy apirit were mis
taken whon they told their follower
to bo temperate in all things. Wond
erful wisdom, stupendous reasoning.
Ho further says that if we vote
against prohibition wo will become re
sponsible for drunkenness. Far from
it. The same reasoning would mako
ns r'Bponibln for suioido, because wo
did not vote to take away pistol, tho
rope and tho razor from tho people.
They are all well iu their places when
properly need. He said I overlooked
tho declaration, "it eating meat caus
eth my brother to ottend I'll cat no
meat." Paul was talking about ob
taioiug from meats offered to Idols and
has no bearing on tho question beforo
us. All of the brethren that partook
of my hospitality took kindly to meat
and we had no trouble on thatfooro.
Mr. Hesa what wpuld you think ot
