"A MIXER - Prepared By Frank M. Nichols 
Drinks should be taken in moderation like food, then they are more of a stimulant to the blood circulation than food for the human body. - Frank Nichols. "Know foolish Saracen" replied the Christian without hesitation, "That thou blasphemest the gifts of God, even with the same blasphemy of thy Father, Ismael. The juice of the grape is given to him that will use it wisely, as that which cheers the heart of man after toil, refreshes him in sickness, and comforts him in sorrow. He who so enjoyeth it may thank God for his wine cup as for his daily bread; and he who abuseth the gift of heaven is not a greater fool in his intoxication than thou in the abstinence. --Scott."
