CORRESPONDENCE. WHAT WE DRINK. To THE EDITOE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 20 January 1906
CORRESPONDENCE. WHAT WE DRINK. To THE EDITOE. SIB,-One of the greatest questions now engaging the attention of the thinking portion of the community is the drink question and how it affects the social well-being of the people. Undoubtedly the pernicious habit of " shouting," or treating one another to drink, which has got such a deep rooted hold of most men as to become almost ineradicable, is greatly to be deplored. Some men cannot buy or sell a horse or a block of land, or, in fact, transact any business that ap pears important without clinching the bargain with a drink. The habit of drinking any kind of fluid when one is not thirsty is injurious, but what must it be when that drink is of a poisonous nature ? If people could only bring themselves into the way of using the mild effervescing non-intoxi cating drinks cheaply and commonly sold the evils complained of, and that evoked the sorrowful expressions of the Anglican Bishops assembled in Sydney the other day, would be minimise...
