Where is my Boy Tonight ?
lantern slide temperance boy tonight
lantern slide temperance boy tonight O where is my boy tonight?
O where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him, he knows;
O where is my boy tonight?

Once he was pure as morning dew,
As he knelt at his mother’s knee;
No face was as bright, no heart more true,
And none was so sweet as he.

Refrain and first couplet of a well known temperance song written by Robert Lowry (1877).

The Stomach of a drinker.

This is a set of eight slides produced by T.H. McAllister, Manufacturing Optician, 49 Nassau Street, N.Y. They tell the story through pictures of what happens to a stomach from Drinking. On the front at the top is a white strip with STOMACH AFTER DEBAUCH etc, following the number of the slide. On the other end is written, T.H. McAllister Co, 49 Nassau Street, N.Y. They are edged in black tape.
The paper which came with these tells the whole story the slides are portraying. Here are some examples so you can get and idea.
Plate No. 5 – Represents the Inner Surface of the Ulcerated Stomach of the Drunkard. It exhibits numerous small corroding ulcers, covered with white crusts and with the margins of the ulcers elevated, ragged, and inflamed. It is sometimes called the aphthous state of the stomach.
Plate No. 8 – Represents the Inner Surface of the Stomach of a distinguished individual who died in a state of Delirium Tremens. The inner surface is covered by a dark brown, flaky substance, resembling the black vomit, which, on being removed in several places, shows the stomach to have been in a state of high inflammation before death. In some points it was quite dark, as if in a state of incipient mortification.
 
How Cissie Saved Her Father.
1. John Smith certainly had a happy home. 2. Cissie saw her father in the 'Spotted Dog'. 3. He went home just a little bit unsteady.
4. Mrs Smith did her best to make home still more cheerful. 5. More and more frequently was John to be seen at the 'Golden Dragon'. 6. The poor wife and the elder girl, Cissie, were crouched together.
7. The blow came with terrible severity on the most innocent. 8. Young Jack was slowly dragging one foot before the other on his way home. 9. The City Missionary learnt the story of the unhappy home.
10. Cissie slipped and in an instant one of the wheels had partly gone over her. 11. He heard Cissie pleading with God for her poor drunken father. 12. Perhaps no happier home could be found for miles.
Again a tear-jerking temperance story about an essentially good and upright husband getting drunk. He stays out all night while his wife waits up for him. The little boy becomes ill and the girl gets run down by a horse and carriage. Then the man realizes the error of his ways, gives up the drink and the whole family lives happily ever after. The set is made by Theobald & Co, England.
