W. R. Lett, national secretary of the
Anti-Profanity Society of the world, was
in Roseburg yesterday in the interest of :
the growing organization. He has
been all over the coast and finds the.
people taking milch interest in this
world-wide movement to do away with 1
profanity. At San Francisco "The i
Chronicle" devoted much space to the
matter and papers in all places have
been giving it generous mention.
Mr. Lett has his whole soul in the
work and he goes right amoung men
whom be hears using "cuss words,"
and in a kind but convincing way, he
strives to get them to stop the habit.
"I have approached no less than one
hundred ami thirty such men.'' said he
to the Plaindealer reporter, "aud in an
instant they have admitted that they
wen 'doing wrong in swearing. I ask
them that if they do not believe in a
God, why do they wound the feelings of
people who have faith in the Creator. I
have known of many instances, light
hereon the Pacific coast, when men who
have been awfully punished by od for
being so profane. Some have been
stricken with disease, others losing their
lives, ami all instances so plain th-l one

preamble to the constitution. It gives
you a batter idea as to the object of the
society: 'With a sincere de-ire to do

and word, ami to elevate the standard ot
