Spends Much on Drlnk.
England spends moro money upon drlnk
than nny other natlon ln tlio world.
Statlstles Just publlshed show that the
drlnk blll oi. England ln 1002 amounted to
tho appalllng sum of JSS5.O0O.0O0, or an
averago of about $25 per caplta.
The money England spends annually
for drlnk ls far in excess of the annual
expendlture for all government purposes
or for all the rcnis of all the houses and
farms; or for all rellgious, educatlonal
nnd philanthroplc objects comblned; or
for tho purchnse of more than any one
