Rev. Dr. Stone, pastor of the
church, opened the meeting by say
ing in part:
"A short time ago I was much im
pressed by the story of a young man
who told me that he had" taken one
of the cures for alcoholism. His par
ents, who live here, are worth about
a million dollars, and are Methodists,
and he was raised in the best circum
stances. Yet he became a drunkard.
lie did not have enough mind or
heart or faith to shake off the awful
drink habit, until some one induced
him to take the cure. I am a clergy
man and a physician. 1 believe in
the grace of (,h1 in the power of
Through intemperance h man's
body becomes thoroughly diseased.!
Now. within the last few years some !
men have discovered remedies by!
which they are able to grapple with !
this disease. Ami so, as a clergy-!
man, 1 sav, let us gladly put forth
our utmost to throw out the lifeline!
to those who have sunken down in
intemperance. 1 am delighted to
welcome into niv church any man or
woman, or any body of men, who
will help make drunkards sober."
A Maine txperlenee j
Dr. Stone then introduced Kev. (i.
(i. Winslow, of Bar Harbor. Me., who l
spoke in part as follows:
'1 observe the works of Diwnt: !
Providence throughout all history;
that in all ages of the world. God in
His infinite goodness has provided I
for the needs of mankind. Temper-!
anee organizations have been formed'
throughout the land and heartily
entered into the work of rescuing
the drunkards, but they have been
unable to rescue every one.
In returning from the west last
spring I stopped in Rock Island. T
met Dr. Paul there, and he told me
of the wonderful cure that had been
discovered for alcoholism, and wished
me to have an interview with the
doctor who had made it. The doctor
did come to Bar Harbor and there
were several cases successfully treat
"One case was that of a business
man who could attend to business
only two or three days at a time:
then lie would get drunk. His phy
sician said he could live but a few
months: that in a short time he
would go down to a drunkard's
grave. He was induced to take the
Morrell cure. He was restored to
his right mind. He has now become
an earnest, devoted worker, and is
now doing business successfully. A
few days ago he said to me that it
had benefitted him $1,500 during the
last season. He now has a perfect
abhorence for liquor."
After citing another case, Mr.
Winslow, in conclusion, said: "Now
I must exhort vou to go into the
highways and byways, yea into the
gutter, and put your hands on those
poor victims of the drink habit. Tell
them that God in His infinite mercy
and wisdom, has put it into the
heart of man to prepare a remedy
that shall cure the inebriate; that
w ill raise him up and make him a
man among men, honored among
men and a blessing to the world."
At the meeting were many of the
graduates of the Mail and Express
Morrell Liquor Cure. Several of
these added their testimony to that
The" lirst to respond was a young
man. who said he was indebted to
the Mail and Express Morrell Liquor
Cure, for his rescue. "1 desired to
reform," said he, "and no one ever
tried harder than I have for the last
two years, and yet I made a failure.
I could not overcome my thirst for
liquor. I had heard of alcoholism
being a disease, and, although a
druggist, I doubted it. My efforts to
reform only raised me from a habit
ual drunkard to w hat I might call mn
I would stay sober for six weeks
or two months, when the thirst for
liquor would come upon me. I
fought it day after day, shut myself
in the house day after day so that I
could not get hold of liquor, with the
hows of overcoming the temptation,
and the torture of those days was
something terrible. My. struggle to
reform was certainly desperate, but
the whiskv always maintained to con
quer in the end". One day, noticing
in the Mail and Express an article re
garding the Morrell cure, I took the
treatment, with the result that today

From an Old Man.
An elderly gentleman followed
with the following testimony: 'I
shall never forget when Mr. Murphy
came to me here in this church and
asked me to sign the pledge. I re
fused, telling him that it was useless
for me to sign any pledge, for I would
not keep it over night. I finally
signed under protest, at his earnest
request. However, I knew that I
could not keep it, for alcohol had the

"I took the cure, and from that
time until this I have been able to
resist, and have not let a drop of
alchol pass my lips. Alcholism was
periodical with me, and when it came
upon me, I had not the power to re
sist it; but I can stand here now and
say that the Mail and Express Mor
rell Cure has restored to me my
health and physical powers, and
made me a different man."
The next man said that he had
lived in "Mulberry Bend," and on
November 16 last he was about as
hard a wreck of humanity as could
be found. One day he chanced to
call upon a friend in this condition,
who gave him a letter to Dr. Morrell.
He called on the doctor. The first
week he was there he was taken with
the delirium tremens. When he re
covered he continued the treatment
for alcholism for about four weeks.
At the end of that time he went forth
completely built up in health, and
found himself free from the terrible
"What is the use," he added en
thusiastically, "of talking temper
ance reform to a man who is down in
the gutter, diseaseil through and
through, without offering him any
substantial assistance? Send him to
the Mail and Express Morrell Liquor
Cure and make a man of him again."
A Woman. Testimony.
The next witness was a woman.
She said: "For the benefit of hu
manity I am glad to tell what the
Mail and Express Morrell liquor
cure lias done for hie. I am a woman
w ho has held high positions in this
city and could always command a
good salary before 1 became a slave
to drink. 1 was finally dragged
down into the gutter and in such a
condition that I was ashamed to
mention my own name, for I came
from an excellent family in St.
Louis. I was in this condition when
a friend advised me to take the Mor
rell cure. 1 refused at first. My
friend urged me so strongly and con-,
tinually that I finally said I would
go just to please her," but I had not
the least faith in the cure.
"I took the treatment, and. thank
God, I can now testify to the wonder
ful change it has made in me. I am
now entirely cured of the liquor
habit. The very smell of liquor
fairly sickens me. As a result of
my example there are 12 women, who
were once in much the same condition
that I was, in the Margaret Strachen
Home in West Twenty-seventh
street, who have taken the Mail and
Express Morrell cure and who are
now entirely cured, while seven
other women in the same home are
now undergoing the treatment."
Other women followed with similar
Dr. Stone expressed himself pleas
ed with the meeting, and so impress
ed with the evidence given of the
good work the treatment was accom
plishing, that he said he would like
to have a Morrell cure under the roof
of his church. He has a dispensary
there, and says he hopes soon to be
able to add arrangeniements for
treating drunkards by this method.
