THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1911.
Temperance Prize Essays The second prizes in the Rock la land Woman's Christian Temperance Union essay contests were awarded to Beatrice Vanderberg and James Hughes. The essays are as follows: By BEATRICE VANDERBERG. A temperance man always makes a good citizen for his mind is clear ana sound and he has a healthful body. Therefore h has the ability to per form his duties and care for those that are depending upon his support. A temperance man always can- be trusted and relied upon, for his brain Is clear and sound. The men that use alcoholic drinks are always dull and stupifled. He becomes careless, negligent and Indolent. If he has a family they al ways suffer. Therefore he does not make a good citizen. The mer chants will always trust a temperate course with them. It is in the spiritual realm that the ravages or strong drink are most terrible. Body and mind are so closely re lated that when the one suffers that others must share the suffering, and the Injury to the physical health re sulting from intemperance drinking must therefore be accompanied by similarizing of the mental and moral powers. But the inclination of the popular thought is so strongly toward the in vestigation of the physical phenom ena that the spiritual consequences of drunkenness are often overlooked. Degeneration of tissues is more pal pable than degeneration of spirit, a lesion of the brain more startling than a breach of faith, but the deeper fact, of which the senses take no note, is the more important fact, and it would be well If the attention of man, because he puts his money to! men could be fixed upon it. good use. - "The curse of drunkenness on the side of its physical devastation has toeen abundantly depicted by the ad vocates of the temperance reform. "The amount of grain consumed in Jhe manufacture of intoxicating li quors; the number of men whose la The phenomena to which we have referred often report themselves to the quickened perception of those who stand nearest to the habitual drinks. Many a mother observes with a heart that grows heavier day by day the sign of moral decay In the char- bor is worse than wasted in produc- j acter of her son. It is net the flush ing and in vending them; the num ber of lives destroyed by them; the number of paupers and Insane persona whose woes are traceable to this source; the effects upon the health of individuals all of these things are frequently set forth with sufficient fullness in impressive rhetoric. Some allowance must be made for the over statements of zealous advocates, but there are facts enough of an appall ing nature in these representations to call for the most serious thought. "But the worst side of drunkenness is not that which appears in these fa miliar figures." The most frightful effects of the crink habits ere not those which can be tabulated in statistics and reported In the census. It is not the waste of corn, nor the destruction of property, nor the in crease of taxes, nor even the ruin of physical health, nor the Iocs of life, which most Impresses the mind of the thoughtful observer of inebriety. It is the effect of this vice upon the character of men as it is exhibited to him day by day in his ordinary inter- PURE RICH BLOOD ed face and the heavy eyes that tron bio her most; it is the evidence that his mind is becoming duller and fouler; his sensibilities less acute, his sense of honor less commanding. She discovers that his loyalty to truth is somewhat Impaired, that he de ceives her frequently and with com punction. This effect is often observed in the characters of the inebriate. Truthfulness is the fundamental virtue; when it is impaired the char acter Is undermined and strong drink makes a deadly assault upon it. Coupled with this loss of truthful ness is that weakening of the will which always accompanies chronic alcoholism. even worse than if they had been eaten by crocodiles. This not only transforms them from respectable human beings to drunken and degraded humanity and disgraceful American citizens but it robs them of their transport to heav en above and sends them not to the bottom of the river Ganges, but to endless darkness. A government that licenses a sa loon is four times as bad as a gov ernment that would license a thief, because the beer and whisky the sa loonkeeper sells you injures your body and weakens your mind and makes you a drunkard; then it has injured you foar ways: financially, physically, morally and religiously, while the thief takes your money I away from you, you are left in a po jsition to earn more. a here are hundreds or thousands of families In America suffering for the want of food which their father uses in making others rich and happy. "A Mohammedan will never at any time indulge in wine for it Is against their religion and that is one good thing about their religion." There are now many railroad of fices that will not hire young men who smoke, chew or drink. Many months ago in one of the weEtern cities a young man applied for a position in the office of an edi tor for a large daily paper. At first the editor received him and spoke favorably of giving him a position. After a few minutes of talking, the editor took from his pocket a cigar and began preparing for a smoke. The young man seeing the editor preparing for a smoke took from his pocket a pouch of tobacco and rolled a clgaret which he lighted. After they talked a-while the editor told the young man that he thought he would not need him. The young man was surprised at this remark for the warm reception the editor gave h!ii. The young man asked the editor his reason for not wanting him. At first the editor didn't like to give his rea- son Dut wnen tue yuuus man YOU HAVE A GOOD CHANCE TO GET This great publicity contest i belag held by the Piano Man nfactnrers Advertising Barra cf Chicago to distribute a large appropriation which ha been made for this year's advertising.
