day. Say Bill 1 saw you in the liquor
and tobacco men's parade Tuesday.
O Yes! Now tell me about it. Who
were those well dressed well fed
fellows in front in automobiles? Those,
why those were the wholesalers.
Well who were those fellows in
carriages? Those fellows in plug hats
smoking big cigars? Yes! They were
the distillers and brewers. Who were
those fellows walking there with the
white plug hats,.white coats and gold
headed caires? They were the re
tailers. Who where the ragged dirty
fellows who were smoking, spitting
and cursing that brought up the rear.
Fellows with caulillower noses and
and patches and fringes on their
pants? The crowd I was with, Yes!
They were the consumers. Then 1 saw
and felt these words of fire burning my
brain. The wrecks of lives at the
bottom of the ladder pay the freight. 1
jumped out of bed cold and wot as if 1
had been in the icy river shivering with
fright and cold. 1 tell you 1 have quit
forever. Do likewise Bill.
