V' L- Fairly Well Settled.
Some things arc fairly well set
tled. Temperance does lengthen life.
Life insurance companies arc good
authorities upon the effect of liquor.
The American Temperance Life In
surance Association of New York
was organized to provide insurance
for total abstainers. After basing
the cost of its policies on the aver
age life of total abstainers, the com
pany later changed its rules and ad
mitted moderate drinkers. At the
end of twenty-six years from its or
ganization it failed because the
deaths among- "moderates" were fif
ty per cent, more than they were
among the total abstainers. The
Yojiths Companion was right when
it observed that "a well-preserved
man." is never preserved in alcohol.
The majority of the people in the
United States are agreed that drink
deceives, disables, deflects, disfig
ures, deprives, degrades, destroys.
As someone has said "Real ginger
never comes from gin." He who
chooses the drink discovers after
ward that drink does what it
chooses with him. It is like going
on a train: "First you take the
train, then the train takes you."
You stop when it stops and not until
Great business concerns realize
their responsibility with reference
to the 'saloon business. That respon
sibility is based upon the conscious
ness of the damage when dring does.
The New York Bil (posting Company
a few years ago refused a half mill
ion dollars' worth of whiskey ad
vertising and has steadily adhered to
its action as regards such, posters.
"Realizing the great power of the
poster advertising medium," its
president says, "and desiring that its
influence should be directed along
right lines, the Poster Advertising
Association, years ago, abolished the
advertising of questionable proprie
tary medicines, and since that time
has censored all posters."
II. The Next Step.
Wc have gone a long way in help
ing rhe world by making the Ucited
Stale dry. Now it is our business
to sec that the tralfic does not fasten
its fang-; upon other nations and
particularly upon those which are
helpless. A big brewery concern in
California has boasted that it has
taken its entire plant to China. The
Oriental nations will be easily sus
ceptble to the business methods of
the organized saloon. Foreign mis
sionary work takes on new and
deeper significance today. These
missionary stations are great out
posts on. the firing line for decency,
order, health and righteousness.
They will be able to give the teach-"
ing which has made a generation in
the United States familiar with the
physcal results of alcohol. They
will be able to tell others what wc
know here A drunken man can
never be free and can never be safe
for others in a free country. Some
time ago a man wns asked to join in
the light against the saloon. He rc-
filicd that if people wanted to drink
iquor that was their business and
not his. Months later he waited at
a railway station for his wife and
children, who were to come on the
train due at six o'clock. The time
came but no train. Soon there was
o message over the wire: "Train'
wrecked. Twenty injured." He
learned that the cause of the wreck I
was that the engineer had taken a I
little liquor before starting.
III. Modern Revelations.
A great many things have been
sharply impressed upon our nation
by the care given our soldiers. Men
do not need whiskey in order to be
good lighters. They are in better
physical condition and have more
resistance against disease when
wounded if they have never been
drinking men. The conservation of
food which is necessary for the
world's comfort today makes it im
perative that we shall not waste
grain in the production of liquors.
It is our business to help the na
tions to remember these things.
The power of the churches in this
regard is great. In Illinois on a
given Sunday by concerted arrange
ment in over two thousand churches,
the pastors discussed a pending tem
perance measure and urged their
congregations to support it. It thus
became a recognized political issue
of the State. The church must work
in these ways in order to save men
and women spiritually, mentally
And we shall not forget that just
beside a cemetery stood a saloon.
The sign on the outside of the sa
loon appropriately read, "the key to
the cemetery within I"
Presbyopia, or Old Sight

Practically every mini and
woman in llie world needs
glasses at that stage in life.
This is so because the focus
ing muscles of the eyes grad
ually lose their power of con
traction. GLASSES must
then make up the lost power.
