WEN PROHIBITION SLIPS A COG.
No more shameful spectacle has been seen in this
country in many a long year than the indecent scramble
for whiskey in "dry" Michigan, following 'a decision of
the state supreme court that annulled the search and
No sooner was the ink of the judges' signature dry
than there began an orgy of whiskey importation. Auto
mobiles and trucks by the thousand started rushing
Honor in from Ohio and Wisconsin. The chief source of
supply was Toledo, Ohio, and the highway leading from
the to Detroit became known immediately as the
'Ronlev&rd de Booze." Alone it was one continuous pro
cession, day and night, of vehicles loaded with drink and
annnten men, moving tuwaru me imcmgan uicuupuuo.
There were collisions and break-downs by the score,
due to the befuddled state of the drivers. There were
drunken men and women, drinking openly, standing their
display of all-round indecency on such a scale as no re
spectable American community had ever seen.
In Detroit the situation was just as bad. There was
booze everywhere. The restaurants were thronged with
drunken men and women, wrinking openly, standing their
own whiskey bottles on the tables and defying mterter
The state and local authorities could do nothing. The
f eedral authorities finally intervened, but even they have
iound themselves handicapped for lack ot proper autn:
Many Americans have held that state-by-state prohi
bition was preferable to national prohibition because it
was more democratic, and more tolerant ot state ngnts,
But a situation like this gives such opinion a terrible jolt.
It is several times worse than our own problem of booze
tiffin from California because the Eastern and Middle
Western states are not divided even by natural mountain
barriers. The sober, respectable people who form the
maioritv in Michigan, as they do in every state, wanted
to be protected from the evils of the liquor traffic, and
therefore had the trafiic outlawed. Tnen owing to some
technicality, they suddenly found themselves powerless.
The riotous and indecent minority gained a free hand.
And that indecent minority was able to tyrannize over the
decent majority simply because there were "wet" states
near by from which the exiled liquor could be obtained.
It is exhibitions of this kind when the liquor-crazed ele
ment is given an opportunity to show itself in its true
colors that has driven the nation to vote dry.
And these still "wet" states have not benefitted gener
ally by the business boom caused by selling boozt to a
By Walt Mason
The wireless is crackling and crashing, conveying in
tf Uigence weird; from Holland the news comes a-f lashing,
that Wilhelm is raising a beard. He's sitting in sack
cloth and ashes, from royal magnificence hurled, and finds
that his well known . mustaches won't hide all his face
from the world. No wonder he wants to conceal it, to
hide it away in the brush, where no one can see it or feel
it, or greet it with groaning or gush. His face has grown
tired of men's chiding, with sadness it's seamed and it's
Beared; he's anxious to keep it in hiding, and so he is
raising a beard. The winds through his whiskers are
Wowing, and sadly they chant in his ears; his galways
like milkweeds are growing, he waters them well with his
uars. He knows that his face is an error, a thing that is
hated and feared; the children regard it with terror, and
so he is growing a beard. His face is a painful reminder
ot U-boats, to murderfests steered; to cover it up would
be kinder, and so he is growing a beard. His face is con
"dered immoral, wherever that mug has appeared;
though whiskers be brindled or sorrel, he's wise in thus
growing a beard. So hide in your whiskers, ex-kaiser, let
barbers be flouted and jeered; for one like yourself it
were wiser to crouch at the back of a beard.
Lovers of the great West will no doubt be charmed
to learn that a project is under discussion by which the
"scenic value of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado would
be greatly increased." It includes the building of a series
of great Niagaras, and conversion of the Colorado river
into a -"moving, living stream, life-giving."
It is all quite inspiring in spite of the purely mater
ialistic purpose. That purpose is, of course, to create a
huge reservoir of water for irrigation, to use the water
power for the generation of electricity and to check cer
tain occasional destructive floods.
The need for making use of the now wasted water
.power is becoming more apparent every year. So, too,
is the value of reclaiming arid land and making it into
beautiful and productive ground. These things are well,
as the development of navigable waterways, are recog
nized as necessary" and genuine additions to the benefits
already conferred by nature. .Modern engineering digs
great canals, makes huge tunnels, and is daunted by
Yet when it comes to enhancing the scenic value of
a mountain range or the the tremendous wonders of a
Grand Canyon, man's ability seems a trifle undeveloped.
Perhaps we are ready ,to build another Niagara falls
and to place it where it shows off to the best advantage.
But would a God-fearing nature-lover brag about the
work? .- .
"We Want Candy Cascarets"
Rtsohxd: That when our tongues turn white,
' breath feverish, stomach sour and bowels consti
pated, that our mothers give us Cascarets, the nice
candy cathartic, and not nasty castor oil, mineral
oil, calomel or pills. Cascarets "work" without
griping and never hurt us kids. Cost only 10 cents.
TO MOTHERS 1 Learn to give harmless Cascarets to your cross,
sick, bilious, constipated pets and save coaxing, worry and money.
Children love this candy cathartic. Nothing else cleanses the little liver
and bowels so effectively. Each 10 cent box of Cascarets contains direc
tions for dosage for children aged one year old and upwards.

office In its place had come a great
desire to know more of that business
so luxuriously housed. So I told him at
once that I had called on him, and
how disappointed I was to find him out
He flared up immediately I began to
'What motive ma you nave in go
