This image, from the Band of Hope Review in 1906, takes a frequently-cited motto of the teetotal movement, and expounds on it. The analysis and expansion, here, are typical of what would be given in a talk or address at a meeting – using the blackboard, of course.

Prevention is
Easier than Cure
Cheaper than Cure
Safer than Cure
Happier than Cure
Better than Cure
Start well and go right on.
