Whiskey --That’s All
Charges it to Alcohol
Mr. Leif Jones, M.P., one of Great Britain’s most active temperance workers, is convinced that one of the reasons of commercial depression is the prodigious consumption of alcoholic stimulants. “I recently met the finished article of the liquor trade,” he says. “He was lying in the gutter. He had no hat; the hat trade was suffering. His coat was full of holes; the tailoring trade was suffering. He had no shirt; the hosiery trade was suffering. He was dirty; the soap trade was suffering. Indeed, I can hardly mention an industry in this country which was not affected by that man’s insobriety.”
