TAE DISASTER CF C;',.NKNNESS .
It Threatens to Overwhrlm the Country I
with a flooad of Wooe.
So great is the disaster, from an sco
nomic point of view, wrought by the
blnor traffle that (er:nany thas insti
Lited a most exhaustive ill\n'vtigation.
This investigation has resulted in the
d,.c'laration that the ahlohol habit re

We have grave doubts of the sincerity
i" a man who professes to feel deeply
enor the horrors and miseries caused by
ae liquor traffic, but whose feeling doer
it go deep enough to cause him to put
a way the bottle or the cup from his own
lps. All other arguments aside, it I
SMouild ippear as if the simple weight of l
nadisputed facts and figures spread
i,,fore all the world day by day, show- 1
i:,n the fearful ind heartsickening array 1

v.very thinking and reasoning man to
