Writing on "The Greatest Curse,"
Mrs. Marietta Holley, better known
under the nom de plume of "Josiah
Allen's Wife," says:
"The saloon is the greatest curse of
I the present day, the fountainhead from
I whence flows streams of evil. It fills
our prisons with criipinals, our insane
asylums with victims, and our grave
yards with paupers' graves. It turns
happy homes into barren wastes. It
debauches and ruins the husband, the
son, the father; it destroys the happi
ness of the wife, tte mother, the
daughter. It clothes them in rags,
starves them and breaks their hearts.

Use of Wine Is Dying Out
About thirty years ago the then
Prince of Wales lay prostrate with
typhoid fever. The physicians deter
mined in his case to abandon the med

milk. A daring experiment it seemed,
but it was entirely successful. In the
hearing of the writer of these lines,
fDr. Edmunis of London narrated the
story in New York, and claimed that
it was the milk that saved the royal
life. Of late years it is known that
Edward has been increasingly abstem

thing stronger than the lightest claret.

Now if we suppose "Johi Smith"

constantly, we have an exact illustra

man who drinks robs every legitimate
business of the profit that it should

From the bar of every saloon in the
