results" of liquor selling have been

slns that no apology Is needed for his
taking up the work of suppressing the
Sunday liquor trufllc, busing his right
to do as a minister who has the spir

indicated his willingness not to prose
cute provided there is a response on
the part of saloon-keepers to close
their pMaees and keep them closed for
all time, lie makes a proposition to
this effect.
lr. Whalen also answers the objec

as to his closing- places on the outskirts

i the saloons of this city have been In
multiplying tlia number of men, whom

words, "Xo driiiiUaul shall Inherit the

In the third place, it Is to the church
and the ministry that the suffering wo

the faithful husband and Indulgent father
Into a llend. With my own heart sick
ened by such expei leiu-es as these, 1 deem
It my business, most decidedly, to see
that the community H saved from th'j

Will Show Saloon Keepers' Records.
When any of the dealers call lo see I lie
let old lo which I have referred earlier
In my letter, I will want to show them
some data which I have galheied to show
why interference with their business is
m Inlsliu.'ss.
I am told also that many or the dealers
tlnow up the defence Unit while others
are keeping: op"ii they will. The ab
surdity of such a defence is too clear
to call for comment. Would Uiey consent
to Hits line of argument in ulher men who
break law'.' Then, the thief could say
when others slop-stealing I'll stop: the
murderer cotihl say While otheis kill l

little light of a line manhood to be turned
upon the question to make eveiy dealer
see that individual responsibility, before
God and befoie the law, is not set aslds

There's not a criminal In durance vile
bin feels thai he has been di.-cilminated
against. It would peihaps be convenient
lor a class of men who persistently vio
late law. if they could determine Just
where and how. and against whom pro
ceedings shall be Instituted, and to dictate
In teiins of the law's enforcement, but
unhappily for Uiem such conditions do
not exist.
Of course there will be discrimination;
Hie location of a saloon, the charncler
or the proprietor, the history or Hie place,
the lellabllity and amount ot evidence
available and even thn Insolence of the
offender toward those 'engaged in de
manding that saloon' men be law abiding,
will all have weight in every movement
Cause of Movement Declared.
The case Is now fully before you, and
disavowing all desire to persecute, or even
to prosecute, and with no apology for my
position In the matter, I declare the move

be on in the name of our God. In the
name of law, and hi the name ot common

In connection with 'the letter from
Dr. AVhalen it can be .stated that the
movement in which he has taken such
a pronounced stand Is likely to be the
subject or a grand jury Inquiry next
week'. When tho constables make their
returns next week- it will not be sur
prising If the saloons which Dr. Whalen
visited ami round therein a litis; busi
ness going on, will be returned as
selling on Sunday.' In truth It seems
certain at this time that this Is what
will lake place. If this be done, as Is
now Indicated, the isvidence which has
been collected will probably be asked
for by the grand jury, Prosecutions
will likely follow In such an event,
whether, or not there Is u disposition
to abate them on the sacred promise
of local saloon-keepers to close and
keep closed, their several places. These
prosecutions, however, would not ho
carried on by How Dr. Whalen, but
through thn district attorney's office,
This development of the situation, now
that It is Indicated, will be awaited
with eager Inteiest,

to tho effect. The Mozart orchestra,

Of the Present Day.
Titer absorbing problem of todaj Is,
how to expend one's Income o as to at
tain the best restills! that Is, get full
Value for one's money.
It tuny truthfully be said that this
has been, Is, aiid always will be an ab
sorbing problem to those with limited
means! but the fact remains that, with
the price of living necessities constantly
rising one must husband one's resources
more carefully than ever before If he
would live within his Income. In say
ing that prices are rising, we except
one nrtlcle which has come to occupy
a prominent place In the family medi
cine closet, and that Is the specific for
piles or hemorrhoids known ns Pyra
mid Pllodtro! this remedy Is still sold
by druggists at tho old prices of fifty
cents, und one dollar, and these prices
will remain unchanged. Those to whom
this preparation has brought relief nnd
a cure, after years of suffering, do not
need to be told of Its merits; others are
advised that It Is the greatest boon ever
discovered, to all those ninicled with
any form of' piles; It Is In suppository
form, Is easily applied, reaches the seat
of the complaint, and gives Immediate
relief and a lasting cure,
The reader may have tried salves,
ointments and lotions without benefit,
and feeling that his money has been
wasted, resolves to suffer on rather
than experiment farther. The reason
for the failure ot tliese treatments is,
that they da not reach the scut of the
trouble, and hence do not remove the
cause, as does Pyramid Pile Cure. A
little book describing piles, their, cause
and cure, Is published by the Pyramid
Drug Co,, Marshall, Mich., and anyone
may procure a copy by sending name
and address to above firm, As shoe
ing the estimation in which this rem
edy Is held by the public It may Inter
est the reader to know that Its sales
now exceed those ot nil other pile rem
edles combined.

Women's Rain-Coats and Ulsters.
One of the busiet places in the store is that little spot
where we sell rain-coats. Dozens of wonien trying them
on and being fitted all day long-; and no wonder can you
J think of anything better looking or more sensible as a
v wrap ? And not only does the practical side appeal to
women, but the styles are those of the best ulsters.
Except that the skirts are wider, rain-coats and ulsters
are alike as two peas in style; but ulsters are running
heavier and are meant for colder weather.
Some are quite elaborate; some are just sensible and
cover you from top to toe equally. Have you ever thought j
how absurd it is to give a little added weight to your J
shoulders aad arms when you go out and to neglect the ?S
rest of you? You ought to cover yourself all over on a M
cold day.
