"Alcohol on the Human Body." It Is as
WHV IT MAKKS PKOPIjB PAT.
Alcohol Is n chemical compound of car
bon, hydrogen nnd oxysen that has been
known1 nnd extensively used from tho
earliest times. Somo people think that nl-
,cohoi has cortnln food nnd medical prop
erties. They hold that It sometimes acts
13 a gentle stimulus, helping to digest
the food I" the stomach. This Is disputed
Jby many people.
- The drug furnishes temporary heat,
which help.i to rrm fat- 'rh,s fnt ,B not
i Urtd up, but Is -stored In tlio body. That Is
'onq reason why peoplo who drink grow
yfat. Whisky does not warm tho body,
biit It really Iowith tho temperature. It
often Irritates tlio lining of tho stomach
to such an extent that It causes chronlt!
' The chief action of alcohol Is on tho
nervous system, making somo peoplo mora
brilliant and lapnblo for tho time being,
While It seems to paralyzo others, who
lose control of themselves.
' The man who takes liquor will do less
work and poorer work than the man who
does not drink nt all. This has boon
proved by scientists.
The scientists trlrd simple problems of
addition and multiplication among two
iroups of men thoso who had taken nlco
,' hoi and those who bad not. Tho men who
did not take alcohol were brighter In their
work than tlio others.
The llvfr may become larger and hard
er; the blood vessols also becomo harder.
Sometimes It so nrfects tho lungs and cir
culation that death Is caused by paralysis.
Tha effc-t upon tho heart Is very marked,
causing palpitation, fainting nnd breath
lessncis when tho drinker exerts himself.
It Is tho unhealthy condition of tho
heart and circulation that causes the flor
id complexion Tho muscles also sutler,
becoming weak nnd flabby. A man who
drinks cannot tako out a llfo Insurance
cannot get employment on tho railroad
and tho telegraph companies.
The peron who drinks shortens his llfo
1 and It has a bnd Influenco on tho chil
dren. The worst results! of alcohol aro delir
ium tremens and Insanity.
It often leads to crimes and makes
homes ery unhappy
Dr. William J. Welch, of Johns. Hop
kins University, says:
"Alcohol In sufficient quantities Is a
poison to all living organisms, both nn
Mmal and vegetable."

Evangelist Biederwolf's Strong
Sermon on Terrors of Hell
Wins Many Converts
NOimiSTOWN. Fa., March .1. "Tho
Unnnswernblo Question," ns propounded
by Evangelist Illcdorwolf at tho taber
nacle last night, brought morothan a
hundred penitents to the platform In an
swer to hla Invitation. The evangelist's
thorough conviction that thero Is a hell,
nnd that thoso who fall to llvo as Clod
would havo them nro certain to spend
otornlty there, was clearly emphasized In
a sermon devoid of even tho customary
sulphuric phrass which havo been burled
nightly at the unrepentant
The absenco of these forceful cplgr.imi
did not detract a whit from tho power of
his appeal or the vividness of tho plcturo
of the phosphorus pit which ho threw bo
fore tho oyes of his audience, which num
bered close to 3E00 persons.
"How shall wo escape, If wo neglect so
great salvation?" was his question, and
thoso who can ridicule the existence of a
fiery region for sinners camo in for his
hottest verbal blasts.
"Occasionally." lie paid, "wo find nn
Individual, and sometimes It Is a pnstor
who sets up his' gnntllke brain against
the word of Almighty Cod. and for the
sako of cheap newspaper notoriety or be
cause It seems 'big' to do It, declares
that thero Is no hell. They don't get that
from the Bible, but It grows oit of their
puny, nnrrow minds
"Some people contend that God Is too
just to send a man to eternal punish

lie contended that ns we must punish our
malefactors on earth, so must God, It Ho

AUTO CONCERNS HERE
HURT BY EMBARGO
Continued from I'ate One
ping machines to New York and to points
In Ncw Kngland.
"Tho embargo on the New Haven," ho
said, "has lilt us particularly hard. Wo
are frequently obliged to ship cars to
points .10 or 40 miles from their destina
tions and then drlvo them over. For In
stance, enrs destined for Bridgeport, Conn ,
wo havo to ship to Brewster, Is. Y., nnd
drlvo them over from Brewster to Bridge
port, a distance of 25 miles.
"Conditions In shipping nre dally be
coming more chaotic. Frequently our cars
becomo lost, and aftor sevorul days' search
wo pick them up In New Jersey or New
York State, many miles from tho points
for which they were billed."
W. K. Armstrong, mnnagor'of tho Phil,
udelphla hranoli of tho Htudebakor Com
pany, said: "Becauso of the scarcity of
box cars we havo been forced to uso Hat
cars with canvas covers, and wo cannot
get enough of this kind of rolling stock.
Right now wo need four tralnloads of au
tomobiles to mot tho demand of current
business In tho Philadelphia district, hut
wo cannot get them through from Detroit.
Tho situation Is very serious, and tho nu
tomoblla business In the Philadelphia dis
trict will suffer a tremendous loss unless
wo can obtain relief In tho near future."
Trucks placed In service by the Auto
Car Company mnko trips dally between
this city nnd New York and between
Philadelphia and tha plant of the Bethle
hem Steel Works ln South Bothlehem, Pa.
"Tho freight embargo contains no
menace for tho business of this company,"
said W. W. Morton, manager, today.
'Tho minute the embargo began to put
a crimp In our supply of raw material
from tha Bethlehem Steal Works anil from
forging companies In Now York and
Brooklyn wo put a fleet of fast motor
trucks Into commission. These trucks
bring forginga from the Bethlehem Steel
Works and castings nnd springs from
"We aro also delivering new trucks by
our auto freight service. We send now
trucks over the roads to New York, and
they aro shipped from that city by boat.
"At first wo were seriously handicapped
by the embargo placed by tho New York,
Now Haven nnd Hartford Railroad, but
we are now getting fchlpments of steel
from Boston by boat direct to Philadel
phia." READING NOT AFFECTED.
The Philadelphia branch of the Ford
Automobile Company Is not affected by
the embargo because the plant Is located
on a siding of the Philadelphia and Read
ing Railway. Parts of cars are received
over the Reading from Detroit and as
sembled at tho Philadelphia plant.
Asnew T. Dice, general manager of the
Philadelphia nnd Reading, Issued a state
ment today in which ha announced that
there was little likelihood of an embargo
being placed on the Reading In Philadel
phia. He also stated that tho Reading
would not send a representative to the
Interstate commerce hearings In Wash
ington next Monday and Tuesday unless
asked tq do so by the Government
"Of course," said Mr. Dice, "wo still
have the old embargo on grain and
bituminous coal at Port Richmond, but I
don't believe It will extend to the entire
Philadelphia district. Trattlo la running
at, the high-water tnark, however, and we
have to hustle to keep dqwn congestion."
Several automobile concerns ln tho city
affected by the embargo are using the ex
press companies with fair success for ship
ping and receiving of goods. Many tons
of small parts of automobiles have been
received via (he express companies this
week. The Maxwell Company reported to
'day that It was using the express com
panies with considerable success. The
Hudson Mqtor Car Company had a siding
on the Reading, and it Is not suffering
from the embargo.
W, P. Herbert, manager of the eflice of
the Chandler Motor Car Company here,
said a number of automobile concerns had
become bo badly crippled by the embargo
that they were driving care from fac
tories In Cleveland and Detroit to agencies
In Pittsburgh, New York, and other cities.
Officials of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road announced today that it was not
unlikely that tha embargo would extend
to that railroad While traffic i Increas
ing dally, the road lias beeu able- to pre
vent serious congestion.

was on tho topic, "Vo Are My Witnesses."
lie said ln part:
"Thoro urn many Christians who tell
us that they do not bcllovo In talking
about their religion. They s.iy they would
rather demonstrate It. Well, that Is nil
true, but Is not the whole truth, nnd that
Is the worst sort of He. A witness Is not
one who advocates. That Is not his busi
ness at all. Yet so many of us think
thnt wo must advocate tho catiso of the
Lord, so wo havo dlscusqlon and books
on npologetlcs, etc , ns If wo wero on
the stand to defend Christ's rauso He
will look nfter Ills own business. Iln
has seen to that already. All wo havo
to do Is to witness and Ho will advocate
"How mnny nro hoio who say that they
havo not tho tlmo or the Hcopo to witness.
If only they wero somo ono olso or some
where else, then they might witness, but
because they aro all day In tho home with
the children, or tu tho factory or the storo
or school they cannot do it. Ood baa
placed every ono of us in tho centre of
tin eo concentric circles when Ho saved
us Tho Ilrst circle Is tho homo. If wo
have not commenced thero wo need not
start any whero olso. Havo you told your
wife, your mother, your husband, your
brother or sister that you are a friend
of tho Lord Jesus? It Is far harder to
do It there than any other place. It is
right thero the Lord would havo us be
gin. Do wo witness by the family altar?
How many of you have one In tho home?
Do you havo tlmo for business, tlmo for
pleasuic, and not tlmo for prayer with
your loved ones In tho homo?
"Let us start right there. If we havo
not already done so, or If wo used to
have tho nltnr, let us erect It again. Have
wo dealt personalis- with our loved ones
about their soul's salvation? Let us begin
and right In the homo witness for tho
Lord. Ho will help us to deliver souls of
our loved ones
"The next circle In tho church. Havo
you Joined It? Why not? Aro wo ashamed
to let others know wo are Ills friends?
What would you think of mo being a
Free Mason and yet not Identifying my
self with the lodge? Yet how many thera
aro who say they aro Christians and yet
are not Identified with tho church.
"Tho other cliclo Is tho world. If we
cannot seo outsldo tho walls of our denom
ination, then wo nro too narrow; If wo
ennnot holp outsldo of our own church,
thore Is something wrong with our llvos.
W are to feel tho claims of China,
Africa, South America, tho Isles of the
Seas, India, ns well a no ones at our
own door and In our own nomes and

praying tho Lord's blessings. Wo can
