kept in the most approved way, a double

records are open to the inspection of any
who care to look for themselves.
Where there was a tie of’ numbers, it
was of course necessary^ to abide by the
laws of the contest and take them in
order of their receipt. The counts were
recorded and dated at the time of re

“The prevalent idea that drinking

together wrong,” said a physician who
has made a special study of dipsoma

That hundred will be money well
spent. It pays to advertise.
“On the other hand, it is a rather
curious fact- that in the case of the
moderate drinker, who also smokes, the
cutting off of his supply of tobacco will
increase his appetite for alcoholic bev
erages, and while at first the liquor
will hot affect him nearly* so much as
when he is smoking, in tbe end it will
do him up. Consequently it is safe to
assume that the man who always used
liquor and tobacco in moderation will,

strongly to liquor. In fact, this, ia no
assumption; it has been demonstrated
on numerous occasions.”—Philadelphia
