The Kentucky Commonwealth says:
The Governor of this State was author

stead, thirty year bonds, the interest on
which is payable at New York. There
were about )Jffi00,000, of the 6 year

rapidly making these exchanges, charg

per cent in favor of the long bonds. We

the best policy even for a preacher.
Hut you say it is no poison. Yet
Physicians tell us that alcohol will

C'himists have proved that nil the

David drank wine himself?
Teetotaler What if he did, men
were permitted to do many things in
ancient times that are not suited to
this enlightened age. You seem to
think that it is our duty to do what
the ar.cients were merely allowed to
practice. You must see the absurdi
ty tf this? Now let me ask you a
question.' Is not drunkenness a sin
and a great evil.
D. Swig I am not so sart n about
its being a sin. Brother , said
that the old patriarchs who got drunk
went to heaven Hut I know it is

business, for him to get in the way of

drinkin liquor i a great evil. Your
brother Paul said it was so great a

Heaven. But it seems you have been

still you own it is an evil. Now
