Description

The occurrence which prompted this song actually occurred recently in a city of California. Some nineteen abandoned inebriates had been for days and nights together carousing in a fireman's club house until delirium tremens ensued. As soon as reason began to return, one of them stung, with feeling of deep self reproach, declared his intention never to drink another drop, and urged his comrads to join him. His proposition was heartily agreed to, and a league was formed which from that day to the present has rapidly increased in its membership ‘till it now numbers several thousand staunch confederates.
