I A Bartender on f
The place to look for first-hand
nformation, and reliable informa
tion, is naturally in the business.
The Literary Digest has recently
published the experiences aud con
clusions of a New York bartender
of large experience, which points
out, and drives home, some very
important facts about drinking
and the liquor business.
To begin with her was iu a posi
tion to make intelligent observa
tion of his patrons, because he
didu't drink himself. "The bar
teuder," he says, "can't drink, be
cause the proper discharge of his
exacting duties requires a cool
head, a clear eye, and a steady
hand." We knew that a surtreon
ought not to, but we didn't know
that they were bo particular about
lie declares most emphatically
that men drink solely and purely
for the alcohol that the drink con
tains. "There is one reason, and
only one, I found, why men drink
I have heard men speculate on the
shadings of color and 'creaminess
of beer; I have heard the virtues
of juleps argued against those of
rickeys ; I have seen wine drinkers
hold up a glass to the light aud
go into delights over its color and
odor. But don't fool yourself that
a man drank whiskey or gin be
cause a certain brand offered some
mysterious piquancy or flavor,

drank wine for the color, or beer
for the creaminess, or juleps for
the mint, or rickeys for the lime
juice. Men drank for the alcohol

It is because a man wants the
alcohol, and that his stomach re
bels against it, that the bartender
has to fix it up, and disguise it
so' that a man can drink it. Most
men begin on beer, uad then comes
a day when they want more alco
hoi, and go to whiskey, to distilled
spirits, giu or rum with their
higher percentages of alcohol
Nature wouldn't stand for wins
key at the start and had to bi
"eased in." Five percent is all that
it would stand at first, but would
finally go thirty-five per cent.
The adulteration of booze natur
ally conies in for extended notice
at the hands of this experienced
observer. Genuine Scotch has a
tang of smoke in its flavor, from
the peat with which it is made. In
the very best brands it is elimin
ated. The average "bar scotch,"
being homemade, is very far from
any peat, so creosote is added to
give it the required taste. Most
of the Scotch sold in America is
lie relates how the salesman
came round with his samples;
poured out a small glass, which
his employer tasted. "That Scotch
is fine! Where did you get it?"
The salesman smiled, and quoted
him a price so low that it made
the employer gasp. "But how can
you afford to sell such goods so
cheap?" The salesman grinned.
"That stuff is wood alcohol. Its
tastes, colors and flavors were fix
ed up by our head chemist Great,
There are wine fakers loo. "How
on earth do you manage to sell
your wines so cheap?" "Oh, that's
easy," replied the dealer, "We've
got some chemists who are wond
ers. They take a little cheap Cali
fornia wine, some water, some
vinegar, and potato alcohol, and
turn out as nice a bottle of claret
as you would want to see."
Brandy is faked by using wood
alcohol as a base, adding a silent
spirit aud ether, and coloring and
sweetening with caramel. Cord
ials are faked too. All the mixer
does is to line up his bottles of
benzoic acid, benzoic etjier, acetic
acid and ether and glycerine. A
little of each on a basis of wood
alcohol or potato alcohol, and a
few drops of cochineal and there
is your cherry brandy.
Even beer, we are told, is no

better. It should be made of fer
mented infusions of malt flavored
with hops, and then it should
stand three months to "lager," or
mellow. But the common run of
American beer won't stand this
mellowing it putrifies. To pre
vent this the brewers add arsen
ious acid, or salicylic acid, which
latter when used a long time does
more harm to the kidneys and
liver than booze ever did. 1
There is no such thing, he de
clares, as a "moderate drinker;"
month by month and year by year
a man takes more and more. The
man who can "take a drink and
let it alone" is so very rare that
he is an anomaly.

ers needed to cultivate the large
area of pines recently planted for
