WANT ARBITRATION TAUGHT.
Nebraska W.C.T.V. Begins a Crusade Against High School Cadets.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 31.–The Woman’s Christian temperance union of Nebraska has determined to have arms removed from the high school cadets of the public schools. The ladies declare the young men of the state should be taught peaceful methods, such as arbitration, etc. The women arranged for a vigorous campaign to be conducted on these lines. The high school boys of Lincoln, Omaha, Beatrice and other large towns of the state now have cadet companies, officered by a lieutenant of the regular army, detailed for the purpose of instruction. The cadets are said to be quite proficient, and, in case of emergency might be depended upon to do excellent military duty. The W.C.T.U. of Nebraska is determined that they shall be taught nothing in the schools that is not Biblical teachings, and they insist this is all included in the advice of the Nazarine, who declared that when smitten on one cheek the other should be exposed.

Ah, sorry ladies, but that isn’t all that “the Nararine” had stated. To Wit:
“When a strong man armed, keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace”–Jesus, Luke 11:21.
Then said he unto them, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one”.–Jesus, Luke 22:36.
“And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through”.–Jesus, Luke 12:39.
