?DOES MODERATE DRINKING PAY?
Answering the argument of the
?moderate drinker that there is a cer
tain quantity of alcohol which can
!be used without danger. Dr. Henry
Smith Williams, the well-known in
"Conceivably that is true, though it
?is not proved. In any event no man
can tell you what that safe quantity
lis-if safe quantity there be-in any
"But this much I predict with con
?fidence: Whatever the 'safe' quantity
lot alcohol for you to take, you will
;unquestionably at times exceed it. In
a tolerably wide experience of men
?and of many nations, I have never
.known a habitual drinker who did not
'? sometimes take more alcohol than
'even the most liberal scientific esti
mate could claim as harmless. There
fore, I believe you must do the same.
"I am bound to believe, in the light
of what Bcience has revealed, If you
take alcohol habitually (1) that you
,are tangibly threatening the physical
structures of your Btomach, your liver,
your kldn .ys, your heart, your blood
vessels, your nerves, your brain; (2)
that you are unequivocally decreasing
?your capacity for work in any field, be
?it physical, intellectual or artistic;
(3) that you are in some measure
ilowering the grade of your mind, dull
ing your higher esthetic sense and
taking the finer edge off your morals;
:(4) that you are distinctly lessening
your chances of maintaining health
and attaining longevity, and (5) that
you are entailing upon your descend
ants yet unborn a bond of incalculable
"Such, I am bound to believe, lo
the probable cost of your 'moderate'
indulgence In alcoholic beverages.
Part of that co?t you may pay in per
son; tho balance will be the heritage
of future generations. As a mere
business proposition, is your glass ol
beer, your bottle of wine, your high
ball, or your cocktail worth the

This is not a theory, but a fact proven by the experience of many.
The popularity of Royster's, the original and genuine fish-scrap
