Who hath woe? "Who hath sorrow? Who hath contentions? Who hath babbling? Who hath wounds without cause? Who hath redness of eyes? The Answer. 30. "They that tarry long at the wine," beginning early in the day and carousing till late at night. "They that go to seek mixed wine." The Only Safety. 31. "Look not thou upon the wine." Do not take the first glass. Do not even go where it is. Do not put yourself within reach of its insidious allurements. Says the Arab proverb, "The contemplation of vice is vice." "When it is red," as it usually was in Palestine, though white and golden wine were not unknown. "When it giveth his color in the cup." "When it moveth Itself aright." The Drunkard's Degradation. His Lust. 33. "Thine eyes shall behold strange women." "Thine heart shall utter perverse things." His Insensibility to Peril. 34. "Thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea," like a floating, half drowned body, or a helpless man cast adrift in a little, wave-tossed boat "Or as he that lieth" asleep "upon the top of a must," in the most imminent dan ger from the exaggerated pitching of the ship, yet stupidly insensible to the peril. His Enslavement to the Habit. "When shall I awake?". The drunkard is eager to shake off the stupifying ef fects of his,. orgies, that he may be at it again. "J will seek it yet again." What the Drink Demon Does to the Drunkard's Bddy. Vs. 29, 34. 35. Our passage pictures the j exterior harm done by 'alcohol, the" stammering speech and bleared eyes, and unsteady gait, the numbing of all the censes. Modern science has discovered' reasons why strong drink produces these "awful physical results. ' ' Alcohol-rijoiaon.-VSp Is airych nine. soirirBenlc.. soMs opium. It ranks with' these agents. Health is always in some way or other injured by it; bensflteiJ byj jnever.'' Sir Andrew Clark. M. D. ' J , , AlcohglIs Not a Foifei. Experi ments made upon a man fcept in an air-tight- glass cago and. fed with two or three ounces of alcohol a' day in ad dition to his other drinkr and his food have seemed to. show that the alcohol did not reduce the system but yielded energy, acting as fat, sugar and starch would have acted. But the experiment proved nothing in iavor of the use of alcohol as a. beverage. Alcohol Does Not Help, Men Work. "As a work-producer, alcohol is' ex ceedingly extravagant, and, like other extravagant measures, it is apt to lead to a physical bankruptcy. It is well known that troops cannot march on alcohol." Sir Frederick Treves. What the Drink Demon Does to. the' Drunkard's Soul. Vs. 29, 33, 35,' 32. Our passage paints the passion which wine inflames, the lest to which it ex cites men, its terrible slavery, the awful wretchedness of the victim, and the final decay and death of all the spiritual powers that makes a man. Alcohol and Crime. The committee of fifty, eminent American scholars that undertook the scientific investiga tion of the liquor question a few years ago, examined into 13,402 cases of crime, and discovered intemperance to be the sole or predominating cause in 4.179 cases nearly one-third while intemperance was a contributing cause in 2,515 additional cases, making half of the whole number of cases in which intemperance appeared as a factor. Statistics of the arrests made in most of our large cities show half of them, or more than half, due to drunkenness. For Boston, for Instance, In 1900t out of 43.033 arrests 27,792 were for drmnk enness. Alcohol and Suicide. Dr. W. Kur bitz has made Investigations, extend ing over 2 years, in the clinic for mental diseases in Koenigsberg con cerning the .history of patients vho have committed suicide.

Burns; cost England her great est all-round man, Coleridge; made her two greatest orators gamblers and paupers and Inmates of a jail; dimmed the glory of our Webnter, quenched the torch committed to the hands of a man like Stephen A. Douglas." Newell Dwight Hiliis, D. D. The greatest general of modern times, U. S. Grant, fought his greatest fight against the terrible appetite for strong drink that had sei:;ed upon him. His son, Maj. Gen. Frederick D. Grant, an outspoken abstainer, says: "Drink is the greatest curse of Christendom, because practically all crime and all disaster are the result of it Ninety five per cent I will make it no less of desertions and acts of lawlessness in the army is due to drink. Vice is simply drink in another form. Who ever heard of a saloon completely di vorced from the 'white slave traffic,' or a house of infamy without a bar? You may tell the young men that Gen. Grant does not drink a' drop of liquor has not for 18 years." THE TROTTING BRED STALLION ! RED CHIEF is a sorrel, 16 hands high, weighs 1150 pounds, 3 years old.
