Why should we not have a Flag for our sunday schools and churches before he sat Down he had outlined to the audience a plan for such a Christian Flag which should not be restricted by any geographical boundaries but would remind All men of their allegiance to god just As their National Flag reminds them of their country a claims upon them.

Overton had a Flag made like the one he had described and on oct. 5,1897, had it placed in his Church along with the United states Flag. Christian people everywhere soon heard of the Flag and it became popular All Over the the flags origins give further proof that Many ideas inventions and inspirations Are accidental or incidental.

Shanbour said she Felt the effect a probably occurs in humans the alcohol itself is not do ing the mischief the researchers said in an interview. The alcohol Breaks Down a Complex transportation system within cells which normally carry acids into the stomach. As a result the acids Start acting on the gastric mucosa or stomach lining. Within 30 minutes after consumption of two or three martinis they said parts of the stomach lining is rotted away by the acid and Haemorrhaging occurs. A if it were not for the rapid regenerative capacity of the gastric mucosa a said Tague a the incidence of perforation and bleeding would probably cause ethanol alcohol to be classified As a poisonous the damage is healed within 48 to 72 hours they said but will recur with the next Binge of drinking.
