THE QUESTION OF MARKET.

Once upon a time I chanced to st md
in a meat market oon after .-i o'clock
Saturday niglit. .Men from the ma
chine shops were there getting .supplies
for .Sunday dinner. I noticed with
surprise how little some of them
bought. One in particular took only
a bit of liver, remarking as he handed
over the few cents a.-ked for it: This
is all that is left of tuv week's wavs."
.Just then in came Charley, the rotund
.saloon-keeper who-,e saloon is on the
Mtvet leading from the machine shops
to the market. He is a big, pompous
fellow, and walking up to the counter
wnn a 4l-r.m-moiiareli-of-aIl-I-survey
air ordered the nicest roast in the shop,
pulled tint a big roll of bank bill-,
handed one to the clerk to pay for the
meat anil went out. I saw that Jim,
the liver buyer, .stood watching him
moodily, and that a peculiar loolTcaine
over his faee a.s his e e rested on the
bill Charley paid, tficn glanced from
the nice, juicy roast which was to be;
Charley's dinner to the iiisignilicantl
bundle in his own hand. .'
A.-i Charley passed out. Jim turned to'
ii.s shop-mates and said: ".See here:"

girl, year- ago. it seems to me. I fell in

while mine and I were poor, and were
Mrue'gling farmers. For a long time
she and I enjoyed our lives in bi'.ssfu!
ignoranc of the future before n. Our
farms adjoined, that is. her father's and
mine, and we saw each other almost
lailv. I was about eighteen then, a

to New York with her father several
times, and had spent one winter in
Uoston with an aunt. But for all that
she liked me. and when she found me
so passionately fond of her. she really
fell in love with mo, a great rough boy.

Charley paid for that roa-t is th verv
one I paid him for liquor not half aii
hour ago. It's gone to buv his familv
a good .Sunday dinner, while mine can
have nothing but liver. Xet week I
am going to keep away from his infer
nal saloon andseeifiuy folks can't have
roat beef for their Sunday dinner."
"Let's all try it." they said", and went
out discussing the question of Sunday
dinners vs. whisky.
Curiosity led me to the same market
at the same time the following Satur
day. In came the same people; hut I
noticed that every one of tho.se shop
men bought a roast of beef, and great
was the chuckling among them when
Charley walked in with a long face,
saying: "i never did see such luck as
I've had this week; never had such a
poor week for trade in my life; believe
1 won'tindiilge in a'roasU but will take
fcoine of that Itvcr.1'
All of which set me to thinking. We
were near neighbors to l'eoria with its
mammoth distilleries. My work took
me iiiucii among me iartners: everv
where among them my Temperance
appeals were met with: "We don't
drink, nor wish to; but if you Tem
perance folks shut up the distilleries
there'll be no market for our corn." I
knew they were wrong, but could see
no way to prove it to them, till the in
cident in the meat market let in a Hood
of light rpon the question. I begun to
investigate. The first step was, to
write to the Intrnal Kcvcnuc Commis
sioner at Peoria, to see how much
whisky was m:ule out of a bushel of
eorn. Waiting his answer I asked
Jack. Charley's son. who was a pupil of
mine and my- good friend, Low manv
drinks there were in a gallon of whiskv.
"Well." he said, "that depends on
how big the drinks are; but near as I can
calculate they run about fifty to a gal
lon." The commissioner replied: "I
have the honor to sav that a fair aver
age production of spirits from a bushel
of corn for the period of one vcar is
from 10 to 17 quarts-.
.then I went to ligunng. Allowing
each man to take but four drinks ii
dav at live cents each, a low average
you will allow, he would spend each
day twenty cents for his whisky. In
the course of the year that mounts up
to over seventy dollars, or just about
as much as a whole beef would cost
him. bought at the market along as he
needed it during the year. My house
keeping experience convinced mc that
a medium-sized family would consume
that amount of beef in a year if. thev
could get it.
The next thing to figure on was the
amount of corn used in making the
whisky. Four drinks a day give'l.lGO
a year: taking Jack's average of lifty
d rinks to a gallon this calls for twenty
nine and one-half gallons of whiskv,
117 quarts. To make this amount will
require, according to the commis
sioners ligures.no: quite seven busheLs
of corn. This, mind vou. on the sup-
jiosuioii mai mere is no "erooKeu-
