CIGARETTES UNDER THE BAN.
The Madisonian congratulates the
good people of Monroe in the cam
paign they are waging against the
deadly cigarette. We believe that
the cigarette habit is distroying the
health, lives and character of more
young men all over the country than
the drink habit. Why not let us
wage a campaign in Madison against
the cigarette? Can’t the good people
of Madison get together on this
matter, and by united efforts banish
the cigarette from our city? Can’t
we create a sentiment against sell
ing them to minors? As we under
stand it, it is a violation of law to
sell cigarettes to anyone under 21
years of age, and yet this law is be
ing daily violated in our midst. It
is time for fathers and mothers in
Madison to wake up on this import
ant question. —Madison Madisonian,
The anti-cigarette ordinance was
requested of the pity council of Mon
roe because the ministers, the local
Woman’s Temperance Union and
others saw that the habit was work
ing great harm to the youth of the
town, and thought that such a law
would at least lessen the evil. The
ordinance is not the result of any
fanatical idea or unreasonable ex
pectations, but was requested and
passed in the hope that it might be
of some benefit to those who are
addicted to the habit in this town.
Os course the conditions are no
worse here than elsewhere. Our
people were just a little in advance
of other towns —that’s all. —Monroe
The ladies of the Woman’s Chris
tian Temperance Union of this city
are circulating a petition addressed
to the Mayor and Council praying
that they take the matter in hand
and do something, if it is ever so
little, to stop the scourge of dope and
nicotine. Why do we say dope?
Because the manufacturers put a
drug in cigarettes to make the child
ren form the dreadful habit, which
twines around their helpless bodies
and z souls like a poisonous reptile.
/The ladies should have a dozen of
these, petititions, andjshould circu
late them with energy. The trouble
with them is that they are too easily
discouraged. When a man refuses
to sign this petition, they can’t un
derstand it, and lose heart. One
good lady told us that Mr.
had refused, and she was consider
ably wilted over -the fact. There
was one thing she didn’t know —a
little thing,but it counts: That man
sells cigs 'ettes himself.
So do t get discouraged. You
have reli \n, right, the home, and
the salvation of childhood on your
side, and with these, can’t you afford
to ask the city Fathers to help you?
So go ahead, good sisters; you do
the talking and praying, and we will
promise to sit up with the Mayor
and Council and keep them awake.
A Modern Father.
Here is a contributed joke that we
approve of, says the Cleveland Plain
Dealer. The joke is old, but our cor
respondent has taken the trouble to
put it into new words instead of
copying it directly from the almanac:
‘’Sweetheart, before we elope, I
must think of everything. Every
thing is ready—don't you think we
would better fly before your papa
awakens and follows us?”
‘‘Oh. no. Robert! There’s no tear
ing hurry, really. Papa said he’d be
■sure to give us a good two hours’
Changing the Rules. I
A man who had been ailing for
'some time visited a new doctor, says
the Cleveland Leader. After exam
ining him and listening to an account
of his symptoms the doctor said:
“If you follow these rules I’ve writ
ten down, you’ll soon be well.”
“But I've been following them for
a year.” replied the man after he
had read them. ‘'They’re the same
my old doctor recommended.”
•‘Hand them over and I'll give you
Rastus was ill and the physician i
was visiting him. according to the <
Ladies’ Home Journal.

“Oh. nothing much. " said the doc

Rastus grew nervous.
“I 'elare doctah.” he said, earnest

Facts are stubborn things, far too
stubborn for anything but a square i
look and a strong grip. Face the
following facts and get a good grip I
Man’s first duty is to seek God —
get his heart right with God and
man. His life should be clean be
fore God and man. Every stain
and blot should be erased. His robe
of life should be white.
We are commanded to be perfect,
even as our Father which is in Heav
en is perfect.
God saves man through human
instrumentality. Christ told His dis
ci pies, Ye are the salt of the earth;
but if the salt has lost its savor,
wherewith shall it be salted? It is
thenceforth good for nothing but to
be cast out and trodden under foot
of men. In other words, men are
saved through the Christian influ
ence of professors of religion. If
they lose their piety, though they
may still remain in the church in
full fellowship, and hold the title of
a Christian, yet they bear watching.
Ye are like a city set on a hill.
Man is in a conspicuous place, like a
city. He should be shown, and is
shown, to the world. Example is
better than precept. Christ came to
set us an example, that we should
walk in His steps. We are setting
others examples. On every corner of
life the public are looking for an
Men are inclined to pattern after
their examples—in other words, do
like somebody else.
Our sons and daughters need the
best influence thrown around them.
Men, in their sinful nature, are
like sheep gone astray. They need
some one to bring them back and
plant their feet on the solid rock,
Christ Jesus. How is this done?
How can it be done? By the good
influence of Christian people of the
various churches of their communi
ties. Every son and daughter of the
Prophets is an example.
The seekers of examples are peo
ple who want examples, indeed and
in truth in its truest sense.
Men are tired of talked religion,
put on, only from the lips out, that
never reaches the heart—always
professing and never possessing—
always claiming and never owning
—always resolving and never doing
—always worshiping God at church
and serving Baal. at home, in our
private, social, and every-day life.
What we need is people filled with
the Spirit of God in the truest sense
of the word —men that are men in
deed and in truth —men that will
stand by the church and Sunday
school and help support their insti
tutions—men that will act every day
alike —men that are good today, to
morrow, next day, and all the. time
—not good on Sunday and bad on
Monday. We need men that are
consistent —their every day walk
alike. Then there will be changes
made on every hand, and our
churches would not rot down and
their roofs cave in on account of the
lack of attention. Instead of reading
our daily news on God’s holy day,
men would support the church and
Sunday schools by giving their pres
ence. Every congregation on Sun
day morning and at night would be
largely attended. The Sunday
schools wouid be on a boom. We
wouldn’t hear so much talk about
the Sunday schools dragging. Par
erfts would nob allow tneir children
to loaf the street-i and woods on
Sunday. On the other hand, par
ents would dress their children and
carry them to church and Sunday
school. Our boys would not grow up
in ignorance of churcii and Sunday'
schoolwork. They wou.dn’t know I
so much about blockading, drinking]
whisky, using revolvers, going to i
dances, theaters, shows, baseball'
games, card pa: ties, pool rooms,
throwing dice, collecting on street*
coiners and telling yarns, meeting
Sunday trains, taking long fro.ick
iug Sunday buggy-rides, and going
I to soda iouutains and drinking ‘-oca
cola aad other stuff of the kind.
After awhile,with all the unneces
sary exposure they get, they break
down in health. The doctor says it
is tuberculosis, rheumatic trouble,
or something else J but it could have I
been avoided if all parties concerned
had lived a different life--
And this is not all. It is said in
the Word of God, “Ye are the light
of the world.” But, reader, if our
light Is gone out, and our life is
darkened, how great is the dark
At the rate we are now living.who
will fill the places that are now be
ing filled by the older people of to- i
Sometimes some of us come short
of out duty. Look at men on elec- ;
tion day: Some of them will sell out
very cheap. Some men can be
bought with most anything, from a .
drink of whisky up. Is that some
body you or me? Look who they i
will elect: men who will drink whis
ky, get drunk, curse and swear.
This type of men are put in office as
I mayors and houncilmen and ollw
'offices of town,'county, and St,mV.
Men who are guilty of crime theftl
• selves are set- up to judge and Pun
ish criminals. Many of our print eV
l ly officers will be bought, and boug jt
• cheap. They will work for part
; money, and for friends, regardle -s
I of truth and righteousness.
But I am glad that not all of oil’
officers and citizers are of this type.
Many of them will work for truth
and justice, regardless of money,
relatives, or friendship.
We will use Sheriff Spencer forjan
illustration. I have never in,all iuy
life seen a man that worked so fai n
fully to get the right criminal, re
gardless of party or whose kinfol ?s.
He goes at it mildly and calmly! to
get the right offender. We saw t >is
demonstrated only a short time a io.
The public remembers how faithl al
ly he worked to get to the bottom of
the murdering, that was done at < iur
own doors —at the doors of Belli in,
Georgia. He feed to find the i?al
murderer —$he fcuilty person. *] he
public how kind ®nd
sympathetic hexwas. He din’t wit
to accwse’Hhe wrong person, so|he
wprked faithfully to get the guihy.
While others were trying to convict
the innocent of murder, he took it
all fair and easy, trying to find the
guilty. We are glad to say that
others that were helping hirh were*
of the same spirit, doing what they
could to find the guilty, and. not al
low the innocent to have to suiter in
stead of the guilty. \
We are glad to say to the public
many other officers are of the semi
type of Sheriff Spencer. We oalv
mention him because we have jlift
seen his spirit shown in ouf 6>n
presence, in our own town, an|ffiit
our own doors. 'Many others arg as
true as the ones that assisted in fijid
iug the murderers.
We only have reference to these
two-sided people—these all sorts of
people, that will work any Way> tell
anything, and do anything, regard
less of truth, justice, and righteous
ness. Many of them are members of
the various churches. They all
claim to be civilized —in a
couniry; but really can any m«j
truthfully claim the M title of civilizaA
tion unless he will tell the truth/
swear the truth when he is put ion
the stand, act honest withyall Afen,
and stand up for justice
regardless of party, money, frWmjF
ship, or kinship. ’
Two-sided people are
whether in the church, in political
or in the world. Men are tired or
hypocrisy. We have all played that
game long: enough.
Reader, Sve need to reform; the
best of us need to imf rove. I
, The best thing that can be djpe
for ourselves and all concerned is for
all people, nations, and kind rod to
consolidate in mind, spirit, and pur
pose, as the people of Nineveh at the
preaching of Jonah, and the Apos-,
ties on the Day of Pentecost, and*
pray for a reformation to take place
in our own hearts, communities,
counties, States, and the. world at
This is the command/ of God:
“Preach the gospel to every crea
ture.” Let’s not be babes in Christ
any longer. Let’s be_tnen,. We ha4e
played with religion long enougm,
We have been making oilt like we
were Christians too long. Let’s get
down to business, so men will know
who we are, what we are, and what
we will do. We have halted be
tween two opinions long enough. If
we are for God, let us say so by our
Christian life. If we are for Baal,
lot’s say so. Let’s be what we are,
so men will know where to placets.
Go.l’s Holy Book says He would we
were cold or hot; and because^we
are neither cold nor hot, He
I spew us out of His mouth. ?
I So .God wants men to be what tljdy
|ar •. God wants men to have only
j on i side, and He wants that side; to
be good. /
A great deal of talking is
d me today about prosperity, institu
tions, Methodism, baptism, and all
kinds of isms. But the best ism We
should study or. desire is a good sup
ply of Holy Ghost baptism.
Talk about good roads, paved
streets and marble sidewalks! These
make a desirable tovfn
or commujuty. .Neither do thtiy
mould character;' '* It takes a townjor
' community with good, neat churches
and school houses, that are kept in
good repair, where God’s people
meet for worship; where they have
a burningzeal for the Sunday school;
where the members of the church
and people at large are in love and
charity with each other,- and will 1
pass and repass with each other, all
parties intending to lead a new lil>,
following the commandments «f |
God, walking in the same all t!4 r
days of their lives. | (
In days gone by it was an honor Ky
a man to be a member of the church.
Men could get credit that were men - ’
bers of the church, when no otheis
could. Today it is not so. Mei
have departed from God and Hs
statutes, and have got into the idei 1
that I belong to the church and havi. 1
been baptized, so it doesn’t make s> f
much difference what I say or do—l t
Will be saved anyway. And they are
teaching this idea to their children
(some of us) by words, actions, and
God wants busy people. We are
taught in the Word of God to do
His will. “He that heareth these
sayings of mine and doeth them. I
will liken him unto a wise man who
built his house upon a rock.” God
wants people that will do something.
Reader, we have talked what
ought to be done long enough, and
have done nothing. For Christ’s
sake and humanity’s sake, let’s get
out of our idleness and get busy.
Then men will know us. Then we
will have influence-for good, in
church, in to>’m/commuuity, and
