About Book

Book Description
On the eve of prohibition (literally! Read the foreword) Morley and Haley penned this delightful satire of the whole notion of temperance. How right they were, in retrospect! Sigh. Wonderful reading, and the point they make applies to all sorts of things. Recommended.

Download Description
If Bishop Chuff desired to make people stop thinking about alcohol, his plan of seizing them and shutting them up in the grounds of the Federal Home at Cana was a quaint way of attaining this purpose. For all the victims, who had been suddenly arrested in the course of their daily concerns, accused (before a rum-head court martial) of harboring illicit alcoholic desires, and driven over to Cana in crowded motor-trucks, now had very little else to brood about. In the golden light and fragrance of a summer afternoon, here they were surrounded by all the apparatus to restrain alcoholic excess, and not even the slightest exhilaration of spirit to justify the depressing scene.
