You let a man read the New York Voice, and then hear Kucker talk Prohibition, and sit down calmly and prayerfully on a beau tiful Sabbath morn and read one of my religious editorials, and he is just as dead sure to catch the Prohibition fever as you would be to catch the seven-year itch by sleeping with a man that h...

t s A Woman Major for Lexington.

In view of the expose going on in that lo cality now ire think to too.

The Old Prehiba Wetting Jedly at tbe Outlook. The Prohibition party throngh rat the nation, end in Kentucky especially, has never been in such fine epint as it is to-day. There are three principal reasons for this. One is the general turning of intelligent and moral sentiment in favor of the Prohibi tion idea, and the common feeling that almost any accident may any day give a practical energetic im petus to the dormant sentiment for Prohibition that everybody knows lies unexpressed in the minds and hearts of millions of the very creme de la creme of Ameri can society. The unflinching persistency of the Prohibitionists, their solidarity, their capacity to rally, stronger than ever, after de feat: their absolute nnitv of nur- pose and the practical impossi bility of division and schism among them, as contrasted with the absence of all of these in such ephemeral diversions from the" old line parties as we find in the Alliance and in the Peoples party: also the general lack of interest ...
