giving it to another. The money paid
for drink, for example. Miters through
thousands or hands, many „f th m en-
d-serving, no doubt, but it does not
leave the country and is not lost from
the (total of our assets. From the
economic standpoint the production
and sale of liquor is no more to be
demonstrated into a dead loss than is
the production of sugar.
We are not saying, however, that
there is no economic phase to ihe
drinking of liquor. Anything which
reduce, the .Length of any individual
in his productive capacity is bound to
have a bad effect on the material wel-
fare or tha whole. The vast quantities
of earning, which daily are swallowed
up in the vortex of drink have been di-
verted largely from the .upport of
families. It j. notorious that most of
the money .pent for drink comes from
those leaBt abfe to p„Si iIul t,iat hy

inefficient. And in this tense the ques-
tion of intemperance i. • profoundly
