"Wine is a Mocker Strong Drink Is Raging. Touch Not, Taste Not, Handle Not. Drink, the old grave-digger, has dug thousands upon thousands of these graves, and it is to-day busily engaged in making new ones. Drink robs men of all their lovable and manly traits and leaves nothing but repugnant, useless husk. In Drink's graveyard lie buried all that was highest and best of thousands of the world's once promising men. The only safe way is to let it alone." Drawing depicts children weeping before tombstone that reads "Here Lie Buried Friendship, Ambition, Self-Respect, Health, Hope, and Love."
