TEMPERANCE NEWS. j (Contributed.) The question of how much alcohol one may safely take 1ms occupied wise men to an extent which forms a; pitiable travesty on earnest endeavor] or no-called siceutifle investigation, j Too much of the so'called science is mere surface observation, shallow rea-j soiling, and prejudiced conclusions, i The mere fact that many individuals \ survive to the end of a long (but rare-j ly useful^ life, drinking vast amounts : of intoxicating liquors. Is less evidence for the harmlessness of seductive fluids than testimony to the marvel lous adjustability of the human organ ism to the misuse of poisons.

It has been de termined that on ounce or two may be ; taken daily and no damage ensue for many years to the grosser structures. This, however, does not take into ac count—(a) the loss of vital activity through the expenditure of f...
