of the most incomparable liq
that was ever imprisoned in

Mabel Brentwood inclined her stately
head and raised a glass of lemonade
as she sat opposite to Robert Mumford
her afllanced husband In her mothers
drawing room on New Years eve
I am sorry I cannot join you In
drinking whisky Robert but you know
my horror of alcohol My father was a
three bottle man and he died of gout
my uncle shot a dear friend while un
der the influence of the incomparable
liquid joy and you have broken veins
in your cheek3
My lady chooses to be sarcastic
replied Robert I hope you are not
becoming a fanatic
Robert how can you treat so serious
a subject In such a trite manner said
Mabel earnest There is no moral or
physiological defense for tho use of
alcohol Physicians use it only as a
horseman uses a spur They have test
ed its terrible reaction Heart lungs
kidneys unite in rejecting it as a dead
ly enemy It puts a premium on mur
der inspires thievery and makes strong
men strike defenseless women
Here Mabel stopped overcome with

county and state to secure the payment of one She ran her slender fingers through his

Zara A Wilson Plaintiff
W S Morlan her attorney
bronze curls then she leaned over and
kissed him ou the forehead
You Itobert are responsible I have
watched you since you have been com
ing here to visit me lately Why you
drank a quart of claret at dinner this
evening and you have visited the side
board six times since dinner tonight
Robert sat erect in his chair and
shook off the caressing fingers I did
not know that I was alcoholically un
der surveillance he said coldly
Thats the way with a man re
plied Mabel sorrowfully Tell him
the truth and he always meets it with
brutality Now Mr Gunpowder she
continued seating herself on the arm
of his chair and putting her arm
around his neck Im not going to
quarrel with you but Im willing to
bet you a box of bonbons against a
pair of gloves that you cannot give up
drinking for one month
Ill take your bet sweetheart said
Robert mollified by the caress just
to show you that Im not the confirmed
sot you evidently think me Drinking
is merely a habit which perhaps I
have encouraged a little but it wont
cause me the least annoyance to give
it up for a month to please you
For many years he had been a con
sistent drinking man In summer he
drank alcohol in some of its favorite
disguises to make him cool and in win
ter to warm him up Every meal was
anticipated by a cocktail to give him
an appetite In fact brandy or whisky
was a panacea for every ill Alcohol
had been the crutch upon which he
had leaned for so long a time that it
had become a necessity And now that
he had thrown tho crutch away he be
gan to realize the terrible contract he
had undertaken
New Years day he spent at his club
where the holiday was celebrated in
punches and all the delicious concoc
tions so dear to his palate Every
nerve in his tortured body whimpered
for its accustomed stimulus And the
fight had only just begun He remem
bered with self contempt that all his
torture was caused by the whim of a
woman And he was to endure this
torture for thirty days He could not
do it he thought Then it began to
dawn upon him that Mabel was right
that he really was the refined drunkard
she had hinted at And with this
thought the mirth and jollity of the
club became unbearable to him and
he donned his coat and rushed out into
the night where the physical action re
lieved him somewhat
The next day Robert was ill nerv
ous prostration and heart failure the
doctor called it All he needed was a
little brandy Robert said no he would
flght it out on a milk diet and he sent
a telegram to Mabel saying he was
laid up with a slight touch of malaria
but would be out in a few days
When Robert rode up to tho Brent
wood residence a week later he had
lost twenty pounds Ho was palo and
thin anu he walked with a cane With
a sigh of content he dropped Into tho
easy chair which Mabel rolled out for
him There was no allusion to the bet
during tho evening for which Robert
was inwardly grateful but such an at
mosphere of appreciation such tender
ness of speech and touch and solicitude
that Robert felt that she was the only
woman who understood him and ho
flattered himself man fashion by
thinking that she was worth the fight
he was making And just before a car
riage came to take him away he drank
a glass of fruit juice which Mabel said
was of her own concoction
Alcohol Is a kind of liquid cement
which binds men of a bibulous type to
gether and now that tho cohesive ele
ment was lacking Robert did not feel
easy with his old associates Besides
they resented his desertion as an Im
plied reflection on their own habits
Consequently Robert speut nearly all
his evenings In the society of his sweet
heart And Invariably after returning
from the concert or theater Mabel
would ask him to take a parting glass
of some new drink which she had dis
covered Now it was an orange phos
phate and again a glass of raspberry
vinegar or spiced lemonade until Rob
ert began to believe that there was no
end to the kinds of temperance fluids
in her closets
It looks as if you were going to win
your bet Robert said Mabel one even
ing when only two hours intervened
between the limit of the thirty days
Oh yes replied Robert with easy
assurance It was a foregone conclu
I suppose you will never touch
liquor again she said wistfully
Oh I dont know about that Ma
bel I shall probably take a glass of
liquor now and then when I feel like it
Of course I shall always respect your
Prejudice is sometimes another
name for truth Robert said Mabel
At 10 oclock Robert arose from his
seat and took a flask of whisky from
his pocket He poured an inch and one
half of the amber fluid into a lemonade
tumbler which stood upon the table
Raising the glass aloft he said in the
words of Ingersoll
Mabel I toast you In some of the
most wonderful whisky that ever drove
the skeleton from the feast or painted
landscapes In the brains of men In It
you will And the sunshine and the shad
ow that chase each other over the bil
lowy fields the carol of the lark the
breath of June and autumns glad con
sent Your health sweetheart
Robert raised the glass to his lips
but as the odor of the liquor reached
his nostrils a look of supreme disgust
and repulsion overspread his face He
put the glass back on the table Mabel
watched him with fascinated interest
Once more he raised the glass and
again his face was convulsed with
aversion He threw the liquor Into the
fire and Mabel burst into tears From
the shelter of his comforting arms a
few minutes later she said
And now that you have made such
a gallant fight and won you will give
up drinking liquor entirely wont you
Yes my love if it will please you
so much replied Robert
As the lingering echo of her lovers
footsteps died away in the street Ma
bel took from her pocketbook an adver
tisement which stated that Dr Escu
lapius Galens sovereign remedy for
the alcohol habit could be placed se
cretly In the tea or coffee of a husband
or sweetheart and that he would then
be cured of the vice
I wonder whether Dr Galens sov
ereign remedy or Roberts powerful
will is responsible for his reforma
tion Mabel soliloquized
And her face assumed that look of
quiet exultation which the face3 of all
good women wear when their little
heels have crushed the head of a ser
