EDITED BY MRS. C. E. ROBINSON
The Tragedy of Strong Drink
The youth standing on the threshold of life asks:
Who hath woe?
Who hath sorrow?
Who hath contentions?
Who hath complaining?
Who hath wounds without cause?
Who hath redness of eves?
And if he will hear the voice of wisdom, the answer is:
They that tarry long at the wine:
They that go to seek mixed wine.
The warning voice from experience in all the ages also speaks
Look not thou upon the wine
When it is red,
When it sparkleth in the cur,
When it goeth down smoothly;
At last it biteth like a serpent,
And stingeth like an adder.
Heedless of these warnings the vision is:
Thine eyes shall behold strange things,
And thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in
the midst of the sea,
Or. as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
In his debauch and stupor we hear him soliloquize thus:
They have stricken me,
And I was not hurt;
They have beaten me,
And T felt it not;
When shall I awake?
I will seek it yet again.-Prov. 23: 29-35.
The Saloon Keeper's Announcement
A friend has sent u- for publication the following:
Wishing to live without hard work, I have leased commod
ious rooms in Mr. Lovemoney's Block, corner Ruin St., Perdition
Lane, next door to the undertakers, where I shall continue my
business of manufacturing drunkards, lunatics, beggars, crimi
nals and dead-beats, for sober and industrious people to support.
Backed up by the law I shall add to the number of fatal accidents
painful diseases, disgraceful quarrels, riots and murders. And
my liquors are guaranteed to rob some of life, many of reason,
most of property, all- of true peace. To make fathers fiends,
wives widows, children orphans. I shall cause mothers to forget
their infants, children to grow up ignorant, women to lose their
purity, men to become loafers, skeptics, and "lewd fellows of the
baser sort." Lady customers supplied with beer as good as the
best home brewed; it will not intoxicate them, only make them
sloven, lazy and quarrelsome. Boys and girls are the raw mate
rial or which I make drunkards, etc. Parents nMav help in this
good work by sending children to buy beer.
On two hours' notice I agree to put husbands in a condition
to reel home, break the fnrniture, beat their wives, and kick the
children out of doors. I will also fit mechanics to spoil their work,
be discharged and become tramps.
If a regular customer should be trying to reform, I will, for a
few pennies, take pleasure in inducing him to take "'Just one
glass" and start again on the road to hell. The money which he
has been wasting in bread and coal for his children will buy busi
ness for me, and when his monjey is gone I will persuade him to
run in debt and then collect the bill by attaching his wages.
Orders promptly filled for fever,. scrofula, consumption, delirium
tremens, in short I agree to bring upon all customers in the
world, debt, disease, disgrace, despair and death, and in the next
world the death that never dies.
*Having closed my ear to God's warning voice (Heb. 2:12-15:
Ps. 9:16-1 7; Rom. 2: 9), having made a league with hell and sold
my soul to the devil, and having paid for my license I have a
right to bring all these evils upon my friends for the sake of gain.
A fine assortment of my manufactured wrecks may be seen in
