One-Half the

Sown is Wasted Every Year'' This statement has been made by many recognized Alfalfa experts-men

who know what they are talking about. They say that they secured better stands of Alfalfa with 10 pounds of seed, drilled with the Superior Special Alfalfa and Grass Seed Drill than with 20 pounds of seed sown broadcast.

How Beer Is Aiding Temperance in

This Country

1909.

IN 'N this country, as in Sweden, Holland and Belgium, and in Switzerland, prace

tical experiments have shown that legislation directed against alcoholism is of no effect, without tolerance and encouragement of the milder stimulantsoften indeed it has but resulted in magnifying and intensifying the evil. And in this wise policy we mark the growth of that true temperance idea by which our country is now in the very forefront of sober nations.

Since the Civil War and the almost coincident setting up of the internal revenue system, the production and consumption of beer in this country have been truly astounding. To make this point clear, we quote a few tabular figures, noting therewith that the production of 1863 (the first year of internal revenue) was but 885,272 barrels, and taking only the statistics since 1900. 1900....

.39,330,849 barrels 1901.

.40,517,078 1902.

.-44,478,832 1903.

46,650,730 1904.

48,208,133 . 49,459,540

.54,651,637 1907.

.58,546,111 1908.

..58,747,680

.56,303,497 1910.

.59,485,116 1911.

.63,216,851 1912.

.62,108,633 1913....

..65,245,544 Commenting on the wonderfully increased consumption of beer in this country and the sensible diminution in the quality of ardent spirits used within the past decade, the New York Sun, in an editorial (August 22, 1905), reaches the conclusion that "beer drives out hard drink." The Sun also notes as a consequence that public drunkenness is comparatively rare in all cities of America to-day, among all classes of society.

Mr. James Dalrymple, Glasgow's Commissioner of Municipal Railways, who was recently in this country, was constantly struck by the same fact as contrasted with conditions abroad. Drunken workingmen are rarely seen in any American community.

Yet the time is not so far back when a different state of affairs prevailed in this country. It is hardly a generation since drunkenness was the national vice. The change seems to have come through the more general use of malt liquors. As the Sun says, "beer drives out hard drink." Moderation and temperance are supplanting excess in the use of liquor. Can it be possible that the American people owe their present admirable sobriety to the brewer?

This is evidently the view of another great journal, the New York World, which not long ago expressed itself editorially as follows:

Governinent reports show constantly in the United States a decrease in the quantity of alcoholic liquors consumed in a year, and an increase in the amount of heer consumed. The malt liquor gain in 1905 over 1904 was over a million barrels. Beer is held up, therefore, as one of the great agents by which this country is to be kept among the most temperate nations. It would seem that even Prohibitionists might inold a reasonable interest in the improvement of the hop fields of the land."
