HELD BY THE MEMBERS OF THE
SOCRATIC DEBATING SOCIETY
CLAREMONT HALL, PENTON ST.,
A VETERAN'S WARNING. There is less excuse than ever for the advocacy of moderation, for we have now such an array of medical testimony in support of total abstinence that ought largely to influence public opinion, and lead to the abandonment of alcohol altogether. Dr. Richardson and others have demonstrated beyond all doubt that so far from alcoholic liquor being useful as a sustainer of the body, it is directly the cause of most its ailments. Bring the people over to a non-alcoholic diet and you have them rational and safe, but allow them alcohol in however diminished qualities, the appetite grows upon them until more and more is craved for. - If I found that it was getting the better of me I would give it up at once." So once said a young man to me; in twelve months he was in his grave! His wife died, and in his trouble he sought relief in drink. How many thousands have had the madness to seek relief from trouble in drink, and found in place of relief or solace only disgrace and ruin. The loss of a wife, the death of a child, a season of adversity, or a flush of prosperity, often drives men to the bottle, avd once begun, nearly in every case it has a direful if not fatal end. In one of the worst cases I can remember I asked the husband—“Whatever can it be that led your wife to conduct herself in this shameful way?" He replied—“I believe it was the glass of beer that she began to take to dinner and supper.” Here then is the danger of tempting the palate by the moderate use of alcohol, even in the humble garb of beer. Here is a warning to every female to banish the beer bottle from the house; and equally a warning to all—male and female, rich and poor, tho educated and uneducated, religious or irreligious ;-all suffer alike if they tamper with the evil thing.–J. LIVESEY's Annual Temperance Address.
