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 sang: “Give to the winds thy fears; Hope, and be undismayed; God hears thy sighs and counts thy tearH; 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 excuses. 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 heart. 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. That silver-tongued orator, Miss Franc* s Willard, passed through Georgia more than forty years ago j :,d left a t mperance message that V '! 1 . t us long as time. v O'.’.i own Mrs. Mary Harris Armor, called "the greatest woman orator in the world today,” will make an utidrexs in Barnesville April 7, 1925. A cordial invitation is given every Cne to conic and hear her. —Temperance Worker. Watch Your Daughter Augusta.
