Christian IVniperanco Union.)
At the banquet given in Chicago
jby the Brewers' association to Mr.
Vopica, the newly appointed United
States minister to the Balkan States
and one of their own number, the
?speakers attempted to show up their
business as one of the financial props
of tb*? country.
Among the statements made were
1. The brewers own and operate
ftil,400 extensive plants, manned by 67,
000 wage earners on whom 300,000 de
pend for legitimate livelihood and sup
2. The brewers of this country
'have an Invested capital of $670,000.
lOOO, and the value of their annual
?products is $375,000,000. They pay out
?in "wages and salaries annually $63,
o. They use annually $100,000.000
"worth of grain and other materials.
Granting that these figures are cor
rect let us remember that the account
between the nation and the brewers
haa a debit as well as a credit side.
Put over against the "value of the pro
dnce" and the 67.000 employ?s with
their "wages and salaries" the amount
of inefficiency and the number of
deaths caused by the alcohol in beer
I--inefficiency and deaths which entail
lan army of delinquents and depend
lents for the state to care of-and the
J .400 brewing plants axe found to be
Quite aa serious a drain upon th?
country's assets (Ita finances and its
(citizenship) as are th? distilleries
?which some of the beer men are try
ling to put out of business.
As regards th? amount of grain
insed by the brewers, let UB listen to
?Prof. John A. Nicbols of Boston, who
?has made an exhaustive study of the
.drink question from the financial and
?industrial viewpoint. Following ls an
excerpt from his text book. "Eco
nomic Studies In the Liquor Prob
lem," prepared for the course of study
.of the young people's branch of the
'Woman's Christian Temperance
, "Investigation show? that only a
?very small part of the farmers' pro
'ucts are taken by the breweries nnd j
?distilleries. For instance, during the
?fiscal year ending June 30, 1911. 114.
'508,855 bushels of barley, wheat, rye.
.corn and oats were used in making
lalcoholic liquors. But the farmers
|raised, during the year 1910, a total
?of 5,143,187,000 bushels of these same
I grains and this shows that the liquor
traffic uses less than two and a half
I per cent, of the five leading grain
crops of the land. For ?very bushel
i of grain used by the breweries and
'distilleries more than forty-four and
three-fifths bushels are used for legi
timate food purposes. One of every
.one hundred dollars' worth of grain
sold by the farmer the brewer and
distiller buy about worth."
(Query: If brewers and distillers
combined use less , than 2% per cent,
of the farmers' grain, what proportion
?R used by the brewers alo- *.)
A PERTINENT QUESTION.
Under the caption "Alcohol Causea '
Most Woe," the Chicago Tribune re
cently called attention to the annual
report of the court of domestic rein-'
.Hons just given to the public. "Um,
impeachable flgureB, Incapable of
mendacity," lt says, shows that the
"demon rum" is the cause of 46 per
cent, of the breaking-up-of-farnlly
. The report advocates a law compell
ing keepers of prisons and workhouses
ito pay a portion of the earnings of de
serters to their wives and children.
Why not urge a law which will reduce
, the number of deserting husbands 46
per cent? As Jack London points out
In his biographical story, "John Bar
leycorn," men drink because alcohol
is everywhere "accessible." Why not
make inaccesible that which "causes
most woe" to families and most trou
ble to the state? To a voting citizen
and a taxpayer this question seems
in order, and one that will not down
. until satisfactorily answered.
LIQUOR AT A8BURY PARK.
Asbury park, where, in November,
the National W. C. T. U. held its
fortieth annual convention, has a resi
dent population of 25,000, and more
than a million people visit the city
:each summer. Its founder made in
every deed a restriction against the
manufacture or sale of intoxicating
liquor, although as far as he knew,
there was not at that time another
seaside resort or incorporated town on
the American continent or in Europe
where in the deeds the sale of liquor
was prohibited. Croakers and timid
ones predicted that a total abstin
ence seaside resort only fifty miles
,from New York could never be a suc
cess. The result has proved the con
trary. Asbury Park is the social aud
commercial center of the nortb New

All fungi should be avoided when
overripe or attacked by slugs. The
medium in which they grow often
causes a disagreeable odor and flavors.
Authorities differ as to the digestibil
ity of mushrooms, but nearly all agree
that their nutritive value has been
vastly exaggerated, although their pop
ularity will continue, as their flavor
and attractiveness will always be held
in high esteem.
Beefsteak and mushrooms may be

the fungi may be gathered fresh in
one's own neighborhood.
