ROM The nutting season is here an wood. Vi I foundation oi (BY DR. J. W. PIERCE) I have yet to hear a man who is so ber minded, never drinks is a total abstainer, from principle say any thing to indicate any solicitude ast how public opinion is on prohibition. Those who are constantly agitating the question of amending the Vol stead or any other anti-liquor act, are the orginaj defenders of the sa loon, and they care pothing about what the people think about it, so they can by some deception or other, gull the public into a sentiment in favor of nmllifying 'he law. As a iru.le, when a man wants a "poll" to find, out how the people stand on pro hi, is an arch deceived-, nnd as 'vet ns n drowned puppy, r would be, if he could get the "licker" The "J ink habit is never an evi dence of genius. Some few men of genius drink, but this is merely a r.o-iiK-idencefor it is well known that a man may be a genius in some re respects and a fool in other respect; hence, the combination of genius and drunkard. A man may be distin guished and suck the jug, but this has nothing to do with his distinc tion. Eminence and greatness are not alwys one and the same, far one may be eminent and not great. The great rarely have bad habits, such as liquor drinking, for example: The fcruly great man, labors for the up'ilt of his felllow man and habits of de bauchery are foreign- to him. The word temperate or temperance as applied to strong drink, is a misnomer. In view of its outward effect the use of it as a beverage is at all times intemperance or excess, hence it gcis without saying that spirits cannot be used as a beverage, temperately for the user invari'jly imbibes for its effect which is always beyond natural, which is therefore excess. But however this may be there is one thing sure, if a man is a moderate drinker at first he nevet remains so. lie may confine himself to a certain number of drinks a day but is sure to increase, the quantity of the drinks.
