A moderate drinker became very
angry with a friend who argued
that safety was only to be found in
total abstinence. "What, sir!"
said he; do you think I have lost
control over myself ?" "I do not
know," was the reply; "but let us
put it to the proof. For the next
six months do not touch a drop."
The proposal was accepted.
He kept to his promise, and at
the end of the month he said to his
friend, with tears in his eyes:
"I believe you have saved me
Trom a drunkard's grave. I never
knew before that I was in any
sense a slave to drink, but during
the last month I have fought the
fiercest battle of my life. Had the
test been tried later on it might
have been too late. I mean to
take the pledge for life.

the raft, tying up at night, and
made about one-half fthe distance
