HISTORY from 13

barnraiings, etc. Then there was subsistence drinking in the winter to keep warm and in the summer to keep cool, which was more mod- est but steadier stream. The Temperance attack was spearheaded, timidly at first, against social drinking. Chester was a pastoral

place, inhabited almost exclusively by farmers. Compared with “mechan- ics and artisans,” farmers did not drink much. Spe- cialized and skilled work- men were expected to drink during their more nervously exhausting la- bors and were simmering most of the time when not wholly paralyzed. Instead of orange juice

the early 19th century Chesterite “cleared the cobwebs from his throat in the morning and gave

appetite to breakfast in summer by squeezing green tansy or worm- wood into his breakfast rum.” “Flip,” a winter-proof-

ing lotion, was a quart of beer into which a red hot iron or loggerhead had been quenched and then further fortified by a pint of neat rum. Slings, tod- dies and noggs of infinite variety were popular in season. Rum was the chief ingredient until the War of 1812 reduced the supply. Then Chester rose to the emergency by distilling potatoes into a 40-rod hootch of crip- pling ferocity. Temperance then as

now was imposed indi- vidually from within and all the efforts to impose it from without were no more successful then than they are now.
