HOW APPEARANCES DECEIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 6 April 1882

HOW.APPEARANCCES DECEIVE. -4--t A Michigan Temperance advocate recently stated in a speech that he watched the door of. a saloon in a cer tain village for an hour one, day,: and saw. thirty men ;go and come. He therefore assumed.. that .thirty-one drinks.had traded owners, and that the town was full of tipplers. i Never was a rian' moregrieoonsly nistaken. Nothing is more deceptive than the saloon business. Of thirty-one men he. saw enter perhaps hot over five took a drink. When you see fat man rolling into a saloon ona hot day, your first thought is that he will throw his hat on the floor, fall into a chair, and call for claret with ice in it, and you wrong him. He simply enters the saloon.to seeif coal: will be higher if he waitsanother month before buying. The.saloon-keeper al ways knows whether coal will be up-or down, and is always willing to tell. You see a couple of lawyers enter a saloon, and your impression is that they are going to shake dice for drinks. Nothing could ?o m...

A few days after the article referred to was made public, a letter appeared in a Salo contemporary calling upon the leading residoeut to take some action regarding the formation of a local volunteer corps in that town. We were pleased to see that the suggestion thrown out by us had so rapidly horne fruit, but doubted very much that a cavalry corps could be successfully organised in Sale, the grounds of our dubiousness making themselves appa rent at tho very outset, for at a meeting of gentlemen interested in the move mont, it was pointed out that Sale did not afford the requisite facilities for the establishment of a troop of horse, though present ing the inducoments offbred by any country t...
