drunkenness distroys life Every drunkard R of today was once a sober man andmoderate drinking was the beginning of his drunkenness and drunkenness is a synonym for deathsee the graveyards Some systems seem to endure r the strain stress and stimulation that intoxicants produce or cause but this endurance has a limit and this limit is terrific and cyc lonic when it comesit is desperation disease and death andI while some systems seem to en dure and withstand and recover the great majority of systems cant and wont endure alcoholcic attacks and this shows the dangerous effect of alcohol on the human system The drinker whose system seemingly stand up under intox icants unharmed is the drinker who is in the dark amid demonic j environment he is over the volcanic certainties and eruptions of approaching alcoholism but the J Drinker whose system revolts quickly whose stomach refuses whose nervous system goes down i after or during ac spree such inA being so warned and he should then flee

shadow and thus another soul is transported into eternity by the alcoholic route i Every heart of every drinker Teaches an altitude in pulsation I and drops below the normal pul sation as the alcohol dies out and in either case the drinker is nearer deaths door than he knows and many drinkers pass through this door on to death another drinker another drunk and gone beyond recall and so is man unwise unthinking unto his own death No drinker would be a drunk 3ird every drunkard would be a sober man there are only two classes of drinkersone is rep resented by the drinker who quits before it

use of alcoholic stimulants and obser vation and experience teach and science demonstrates the particu lar and general health impairing and death causing certainty of alcoholism and no tongue nor pen could tell the story but both agree to a verdict and judgment of condemnation against this hydra The stimulating effect of in toxicants and the lulling influ ence of noxious drugs are decep tive and this deception is the be ginning or initial of the danger to the drinker or user who is really unconscious of the extent of alcoholic power or stimulation theIfalsly soothing charm of the drug and thus the victim is carried into the vortex of mental dethronement and physical im pairment the sad climax of which isdeath The moral sense is the first one to become impaired and deadened the next is the mental and then the physical organisn and the real better self of the man is insulted ignored and imprisoned- as alcoholism gradually ascends the throne and banishes reason penetrating polluting and systemItion burning and consuming the red corpusels until the entire or whole health foundation is dis troyed and the mentalsuper structure falls under the excru ciating and violent work of delirium tremens and in the grasp and grip of this boaconstrictor that coils its power of death around human life by whicht countless thousands of human beings have been and now are torn from life and loved ones In the battle of alcoholism carried on between the delirium and the patients constitutio the distorted vision of the victim his dethroned faculties his depleted system reeking withalcoholic

Defeat of GoodRoads Legislation The defeat of good roads bills by the House of Representatives a State calamity As far as Iin improvement and advancement of Kentucky is concerned they were the most important measures before the Legislature That the House should have frit unilnporItant cuss the good roads bills showed an entire lack of a proper appreciation of one of the most vital interests in the States develop ment If the bills passed by the Senate were not such a s met with the approval of the House they should have been amended to suit or else offered substitutes for them The appointment to inquire in to what is needed in the way of good roads legislation and to re port to the next Legislature only emphasize the ignorance and the indifference of the House of Rep nEverybody else in Kentucky who has given the subject of roads any attention knows what i s needed in the main It is State aid by which the rich counties will help the poorer ones just like public schooleducation is maintained Another serious mistake was fin the Bos worth Wyatt billsj which were put through the Sen ateThere gentlemen seemed to be so absorbed with the idea of getting thecredt for the as1 lfofth good rortd I ttC they failed to take the Good Roads Association into their consultation in drafting the bills There were splendid features in these bills but some very ob jectionable features If the Good Roads Accociation had drafted the bills they would not have contained onefifth the mat ter that the BosworthWyatt bills containedThey have met the con ditions in Kentucky and would have been drawn more upon the idea of what the Legislature would pass than any other pur pose trusting to future Legisla tures to add and improve them There should have been a
