Its not many months since Mr.
Gladstone alluded to the remarkable
fact that England was to be congratulated
upon a decrease in her revenue,
since that decrease represented a lessenefl
sum expended for whisky.
If all the church property in the
United States was sold at the best
market prices it is estimated that the
entire cash proceeds would be only one-third
of the sum spent by the people of
this country for intoxicating drinks in
a single year.
If tobacco is dangerous and opium is
deadly, what shall be said of the distinctiveness
of the cigarette, into the
vile composition of which the weed
and tho drug both enter? Tho cigarette
smoker becomes doubly a slave, for ho
has to fight against the benumbing
effects of two narcotics.
It is said that the passengers of the

a "serpent" and a "viper" can strictly

it contains these endangering qualities
and that it lias slain its millions upon

put it under ban.
It is stated that France is compelled
to import wines for home consumption,
but that makes no difference in the
exports of wino from France to the
United States and the inference is that
if France should cease to export wine
entirely, French brands of thesparkling
beverage would be quite as plentiful as
when tho product was at its height. It
is the bottlo and the label which makes
the French wines nowadays. CiHutian

PIANOS AND ORGANS ! - EASY TERMS !
In buying a Piano or Organ many persons have the idea that they
must pay all cash. There are thousands of families who have an income
of fifty to one hundred dollars per month, who can easily spare from five
to ten dollars of it and scarcely miss it. To all such we would say, do
not wait to lay up enough to pay for an instrument before buying, but
see or write us at once for our terms. We will satisfy you that we are
giving easier terms than any Music House in the United States.
