Horace D. Taft, headmaster of
the Taft school for boys, Water
town, Con., and brother of the late
chief Justice, writing for Connoctl
cutt dally papers, says:
In this battle, who Is our great
enemy? Whence comes this prodi
gious noise, the propaganda over
the whole country which results in
twisted news items everywhere, In
false statistics, in heaping scorn on
ofllccrs of the law for doing their
duty, in jubilation when they fall,
in the sacrlllgious use of Faneull
Hall over the death of three ac
knowledged lawbreakers, in the
maudlin speeches In congress, In

prevent olllcers from using arms
against a criminal In self-defense?
But who is behind it all? Is It
because the good citizens of the wet

the wall, with enormous financial
resources, against the rising tide of
temperance, or prohibition, or local
option, or whatever form the up
ward movement takes.
And, of course, they have concen
trated on America, for they well
know that if the success of prohi
bition is acknowledged here, their
doom is sealed.
According to the Associated Press
Mr. DeMun, president of the Inter
national League of the Adversaries
of Prohibition, a Frenchman, said
seven years ago, "We have a hun
dred million people behind us and
untold millions of dollars which we
will spend in the merciless fight to
destroy prohibition in the United
States." The same gentleman, as
chairman of the French Wine Ex
port Commission, said in the
French Wine Trade Journal, "The
approaching electoral struggles in
the United States will probably be
the occasion for redoubling the ef
forts of the commission, and it is
now awaiting the return of its rep

Remember that what the good
citizens on either side contribute in
this fight are mere contributions;
what these whiskey, beer, and wine
men contribute are investments and
contributions are a mere bagatelle
compared with investments. I wish

a realization of this situation and

SCHOOL BANUQET SET.

Actual tests at the Oregon Exper

times be cross pollenized farther

With a view to assisting cream
erymen in making butter of a uni
form quality and composition and
possessing good keeping qualities,
Oregon State college is coducting a
monthly butter scoring and analysis
service to Oregon creameries. This
is proving a help in raising the
quality of butter, and indicating to
the butter makers what the most
commonly occurring defects in but
ter making are and how they may
be overcome. .
Rust, once started in a piece of
metal, cannot be stopped by just
painting over the rusted places, for
unless the metal is heated, enough
moisture will be left in the rust to
spread it under the paint For that
reason, farmers find it best to paint
metal roofs at least once a year,
says the Oregon Experiment station.
