only places of business which should to remain open on Sunday are post offices h and stores This last one 13 perfectly in cord with his view of things Of course the should be open on Sunday and also likely the and there should be a kind and easy going doctor handy ro furnish prescriptions to needy wayfarers who are not on to the game at the rate of fifty cents a But if any wicked clothing grocery merchant or cigar dealer should be enough to open his place of business long enough to sell a clean pair of socka a loaf of bread or any other such unnecessary luxury he should be dealt with to the full extent of the law Mint Julep is much more moderate framer of the Blue Laws The open door of the saloon is a thousand limes worse than the back alley doggery whiskey or the quiet and secluded where of young men have tasted their first glass of liquor during the past two license money from saloons is a hundred times worse than spanding the same amount of money ma futile effort and ever
