DRINKING BEFORE MEALS.
At a meeting of a medical society a
prominent physician read a paper on
"Appettters," in which he gave tho
results of scientific experiments niado
nt Yale university. Dr. E. II. Cleve
land of Flower hospital, Now York
city, writing of theso to tho New York
"It seems that to one group of stu
dents a good dinner was given with
out alcoholic accompaniment, and in
their case, a couple of hours later,
normal digestion was found well ad
vanced. To tho other group of stu
dents tho samo dinner was given, pre
ceded In each case by an 'appetizer,'
such as cocktail, gin fizz, etc. After
the same Interval tho dlgestlvo proc
esses of this second group were found
on examination to be lmporfect. Cer
tain chemical elements In tho food
taken Bhowed that tho digestive Juices
had failed to act upon them, owing to
the presence of alcohol in combination
with these elements.
"Serious nnd permanent Interference
with normal digestion was clearly
provrd by theso experiments In every
Instance. Had tho Investigations been
carried further, so as to Include tho
efficiency of mental action and nerve
reaction, as well as efficiency of di
gestive faculties, there Is no doubt
that precisely similar results would
have been obtained.
"Tho appetizer, so called, is not in
reality an appetizer at all, but is a
devttallzcr, pure and simple destruc
tive of the normal processes of tho
digestive apparatus and of tho men
tal powers In direct proportion to the
frequency with which It Is taken."
CONCERNS DEMAND ABSTINENCE.
Tho Milton Manufacturing company,
tho American Car & Foundry com
pany, and S. J. Shlmer & Sons of
Milton, Pennsylvania, -havo issued or
ders demanding that their employees
abstain from alcohol and refuse to
sign license petitions of otherwlso In
dicate sympathy for tho saloon.
Thirty men were discharged by the
American Car & Foundry company
because they Blgned liquor license ap
plications. Theso companies do not desire to
lnfluenco tho opinions of the employ
ees In regard to prohibition, but they
take the stand that tho man who signs
a liquor license application docs not
properly appreciate, the danger of liq
uor to himself and tho community.
Ho Is, therefore, not a safe employeo
for a concern demanding efficiency.
"Indulgenco In the use of liquor is
a menace to all business interests,"
declared Mr. George S. Shlmer, presi
dent of tho Milton Manufacturing
company. "If the employees should
be protected by the employer, why
shouldn't the employer be as well pro
tected by the employee? Our employ
ees havo congratulated us upon tho
step v.o have taken."

In 1914 Kansas had reached tho re
markably low figure of 1.2 mills, whllo
Nebraska, whoso people failed to fol

make money that's what you can expect In Western Canada. Wonder
