MRS. ARMOR COMING
It was in Ohio in the winter of j
1H73 when a protest of home loving,
cultured women began a “crusade”
against the liquor traffic.
A number of Christian women, af
ter much prayer, decided to inarch to
the nearest saloon ami ask the
“keeper” to give his heart to God,
and cease to carry on the whisky
business. As they marched they
“Give to the winds thy fears;
Hope, and be undismayed;
God hears thy sighs and counts thy
God shall lift up thy head.”
It took a mighty faith and courage
to meak away from the usual cus
tom of ailer c and endurance, but
“God is the same yesterday, today
i ' and forever,” and as in older times,
11< had prepared these women to go
Jo h, in His name, to meet and con
quer their enemy, a death dealing
< :e.ny. Only those who have suf
i r <1 Jho anguish and sorrow of a
i ruakard’s wife or daughter can feel
t.o need of divine help, and the
quickening power of divine leader
ship, and with all their mind and
heart and soul rejoice to say, "where i
i1 e leads 1 will follow.”
“Gentle women they were these,
singing, praying crusaders, and they
meant business, when they pleaded
with the rum-sellers to sign their pe
titions and forever cease to break
women’s hearts, blast children’s hap
piness, despoil women's homes and
destroy manhood’s hopes.”
Their most sanguine expectations
Were realized for in fifty days it
drove the liquor traffic out of two
hundred and fifty towns and vil
lages, increasing by one hundred per
cent the attendance at church and
de roioed that at the criminal court
in almost like proportion.
They were sometimes roughly
treated l)iit God's words were
sharper than a two-edged sword, and
pierced asumlei the many man-given
Who can face these true words,
“Woe unto him that putteth the bot
tle to his neighbor’s iipe?”
God’s woes are just as sure to
come as his blessings that we receive
each day from his bounteous love.
We warn you again today that “the
way of the .wicked shall be turned
upside down,” and God knows the
secret thoughts and the intent of the
It is an established fact that nine
ty per cent of all crimes are trace-
able to whisky.
One saloon keeper asked, “How
long do you all expect to keep up
this kind of business," and their re
ply was. ".lust as long as we live,
and vo shall train our daughters to
work when we are gone."
We think God and take murage
that he has called and prepared wo
men to carry on every phase of the
glorious temperance work.
