The only good side of the saloon is the outside. “An open saloon is a thing to be toler­ ated only so long as it cannot be prohib­ ited.”— W. J. Bryan. T here was a small, under-witted but faith-filled lad in this country at the time of the great meteoric shower of November, 1833. When, on every side, men and wo­ men were that night in terror at the thought that the hour of final doom had come, this lad’s mother aroused him from his sleep with a cry: “Sandy, Sandy, get up, will you?
