The advisability of inflicting
the death penalty for certain
crimes committed is a question
that has engaged the attention
of many able minds for years.
It is a question not yet settled
It is within the province of a
state to remove from the midst
of the people anything, living or
dead, which is" proved to be a
menace to the safety of the life
or property of the inhabitants of
said state. Therefore, it is
readily the privilege of the state
to condemn a murderer to death,
because he is an unsafe man to
be at large with the people. But
is it advisable to execute the
Many people shudder at the
idea of a christian people prac
ticing capital punishment. They
argue against the death penalty
because of humanitarian senti
ments. But of all questions in
which cold reason should have
the upper hand that of dealing
with one who has taken the life
of his fellow must be considered
Ail the states of the union
have statutes in favor of capital
punishment, save Michigan, Wis
consin and Rhode Island. In
thse states the death penalty
for crime was abolished fifty
years ago and to date has not
been re-enacted. A writer, com
menting recently in Harpers'
Weekly, took the ground that
sinee the abolition of capital pun
ishment in these states there has
been no more crime than in other
states where the extreme penal
ty was enforced. But the writer
did not go so far as to declare
that there had been a diminu
tion of crime as the result of the
abolishment of the death penalty-
In Kansas the death penally
can be executed only on the gov
ernor's warrant. As a result of
this law there are no executions,
owing to the fact that the gov
ernors repeatedly refuse 4to sign
the death warrants.
When one reasons without
prejudice in the matter there are
several features presented
strongly. In the first place no
man is compelled to take the
life of another, except in self
defense, when i5". is not murder.
There are many justifiable causes
for taking the life of another,
and in such cases it is considered
justifiable homicide and nothing
is done in the matter.
Is it not possible that murder
is committed many times in the
expectation that the perpetrator
will escape punishment? Is it not
possible that the knowledge that
there is a good chance of escape
from the grallows has a tendency
to make men reckless? Let the
fact that none shall escape be
generally known and there
miyht be 'ess murder recorded.
When tempted to commit a mur
der the knowledge that if he
does he shell surely hang will
have a wholesome effect as a
deterrant. The possibilty of es
cape at the hands of the courts
causes recklessness and fhe fel
low takes the chance.
They whom God hath joined to
gether let no man put asunder.
This is the substance of a quota
tion much heard. It is tacked
onto the marriage bond.
The inquiring,, min1 wonders
just when God began joining men
and women together in mar
riage. Has ther? always been a
marriage bond? Did Adam and
Eve possess a certificate setting
forth the legality of their union?
In view of the fact that the
growth of civilization, as record
ed by authentic history, has
been slow and gradual; that even
in our history there have been
radical changes in people and
customs; that the mind reverts
in a twinkling to a period when
all men were barbarians, may it
not be possible that we are in
clined to deal falsely with our
selves and others when discuss
ing the sanctity of marriage?
For the sake of argument, let
us admit that we had simian
ancestors of course many
hadn't, but most people will ad
mit that some of their acquain
tances had. Such being the case,
what kind of a ceremony was
performed that enabled these
forerunners of man to proudly
proclaim themselves man and
wife? Now, really, don't you
think there is buncombe every
where? It is reasonable to suppose that
in the earlier ages men and wo
men mated, when it pleased
them, and without any ceremony.
As civilization advanced certain
forms and ceremonies were
evolved, and the work I of evolu
tion progressed until today we
have what is termed sanctified
Our civilization demands such
marriage as we have today or we
would not have it. In time the
customs of future generations
will change and among other
things the matter of marriage
ceremony is as likely to change
as anything. Time alone will
tell and we may only judge the
future by the past. Marriage,
as we know it today, is right
and proper but no more holy
than good men and women make
it. It is recognized by the courts
as a contract. It can be no more
sacred than love of the contract
ing parties, each for the other,
makes it. If there be love there
is harmony and it is a blessed
state. If there be no love nor
anything akin to it you all know
what marriage must be.
Let there be marriages, and
many of them, but first let those
about to take the vow be certain
of their feelings or they will
have many regrets. A little
more deliberation beforehand
will guard against many unhappy

Is Disease a Crime ?
- Not very long afro, a popular magazine
published an editorial article in which
the writer averted, in substance, that all
disease should be regarded as -criminal.
Certain it is, that much of the sickness
and suffering of mankind is due to the
violation of certain of Nature's laws.
But to say that all sickness should be
regarded as criminal, must appeal to
every reasonable individual as radically
It would bo harsh, unsympathetic,
cruel, yes criminal, to condemn the poor,
weak, over-worked housewife who sinks
under the heavy load of household cares
and burdens, and suffers from weak
nesses, various displacements of pelvic
organs and other derangements peculiar
to her sex.
Frequent bearinsr of children, with its ex
acting demands upon the system, coupled
with the care, worry and labor of rearing a
large family, is often the cause of weak
nesses, derangements and debility which are
aggravated by the many household cares,
and the hard, and never-endinff work which
the mother is called upon to perform. Dr.
Pierce, the maker of that world-famed rem
edy for woman's peculiar weaknesses and
ills Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription says
that one of the greatest obstacles to the euro
of this class of maladies is the fact that the
poor, over-worked housewife can not eet the
needed rest from her many household cares
and labor to enable her to secure from the
use of his "Prescription " its full benefits. It
Is a matter of frequent experience, he says,
in his extensive practico in these cases, to
meet with those in which his treatment fails
by reason of tho patient's inability to abstain
from hard work loner enough to be cured.
With those suffering from prolapsus, ante
version and retroversion of the uterus or
other displacement of the womanly organs,
it is very necessary that, in addition to tak
ing his "Favorite Prescription " they abstain
from being very much, or for long periods, on
their feet. All heavy lifting or straining of
any kind should also be avoided. As much
out-door air as possible, with moderate, light
exercise is also very important. Let the
patient observe these rules and the "Favor
ite Prescription " will do the rest

If you have'125 loads of manure to spread and you are going to plant 25 acres'of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow we will tell you bow you can increase the value of your crop this year
from $4.00 to $8.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issue' a 48-page book
entitled "Practical Experience With Barnyard Manures," which explains the whole situation.
Our Plan is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed up by actual experiments extendine over
a period of 18 years. To give you an idearof what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with various crops where 5 loads of manure were spread per acre by the old method,
and 5 loads by the new method, on corn ground. The latter shows a gain of $4.80 per acre. On
another field and in another state, it shows a gain of iS.bO per acre, and on a clover and timothy
meadow, a gain of $8.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing us. It is worth $100.00 to you, but it won't cost
you a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do you any harm. Write us new and let us mail
it to you. It is brimming full of valuable information.
Spreads all kinds of manure, straw stack bot
toms andcommercial fertilizer regardless 0 'their
condition. Sfreads as muck in a day as is men
can by hand. Spreads the largest load in 2 to 4
minutes. Makes the same amount of manure go
three times as fi.r and produce better results;
makes all manure fine and immediately avail
able for plant life.
No-3unchable Rake forms a hopper, holds
all hard chunks in contact with beater until
thoroughly pulverized.
Endless Apron is one continuous apron, (not
a 54 apron) therefore always reudy to load. You
don't have to drive a certain distance to pull it
5 back into position after each load or wind it back
hauls. .
There ia no Gearing about our Endless Apron
to break and cause trouble, it is always up out
of the way of obstructions as it does not extend
below axle. Spreads evenly from start to finish
and cleans out perfectly clean.
Hood and End Gate keeps manure away from
beater while loading ; prevents choking of beat
er and throwing out a bunch when starting and
acts as wind shield when spreading. It has a
graduating lever andean be regulated ivhile in
