"Every pint of whiskey a
man drinks shortens his life by
eleven hours, and every pint of
beer he drinks he steals 25 min
utes from his life." ''The fore
going statement," says Tom
Thompson, "is m ule by an em
inent temperance writer and it
is mostly bosh and rot. I can
take a pencil and show by fig
ures that if evepint of whis
key Gib Childers has consumed
had shortened his life by eleven
hours, he would have died nine
years before he was born."

A 'Call For
Kind friends, have you heard
of the town of No-Good, on the
banks of the river Slow, where
the Some-Time or Other scents
the air and the soft Go-Easies
grow? It lies in the Valley of
What's-the-Uso, in the province
of Let-Her-Slide; it's the home
of the reckless I Don't-Care,
where the GiveltUps abide.
The town is as old as the
human race and it grows with
th? flight ot years; it is wrap
ped in the fog of idler's dreams;
its streets are paved with dis
carded schemes; end aio sprink
led with useless , tears. Unknown.
