Professor E. J. Voyle. a chemist, of
Berkeley, claims he has made one) of
the greatest discoveries of the age
nothing less than a method of remov
ing the "drunk" from whisky without
diminishing Its ' exhlllratlng powers.
Voyle's recipe takes the kick out of
whatever liquid you may Imbibe, leav
ing all the recuperative powers. -
Professor Voyle says the thing In
whlsky'whlch causes all the woe Is not
alcohol, but "cynamlde." All you have
to do Is to carefully extract the "cyna
mlde" from your whisky and you may
drink it freely without fear.
"Pure alcohol is not responsible for
the Intoxication that follows drinking
it." says the professor. "The evil In

'cynamlde. It la one of the minor con
stituents ,not removed by the present
