Antl writes : 'All the legislation in the direc tion of decreasing the quantity of drink taken by the people seems to be in the interest of the vendor of the juices, brews, and distillations. I find now that I get my liquor by admeasure ment — ko much for 8d, and considerably less for Sd. Beer is dearer than it should be in this country, where so little malt is used in making it ; even the softer drinks are higher priced than is in keeping with the decreased purchasing power of the tanner of our currency. On the figures I can see but one thing for me : I will have to get on the water-waggon. The quantity of whisky' I get measured out to me is not worth the money.' WANTED— MEN. Corp. R. J.
