men waiting to get shaved, when there
was a crowd, as to which one came in
first. I was angry myself one day when
a fellow who had been getting his boots
blacked in the rear of the barber shop
and whom I had not seen, stepped up to
a chair which I was about to take and
said he had come in before me. No mat

to go to church the next day and mn.t
be shaved. When I got to the barber s
place, his only chair was filled, and
four or live customers were waiting their
turn. In a tew moments the chair was
emptied, ami I expected that one of tin
men would spring into it. Not a m:iii

and told me he was ready for me. I said

A Judgment Scene.
In one of our scriptures a judg judgment

the Judge is seated on his throne
and before him the people are
gathered, he shall say to those
upon his right hand :
"Come, ye blessed of my father,
inherit the kingdom prepared for
you from the foundation of the
earth. For I was hungered, and
ye gave me meat ; thirsty, and ye
gave me drink; naked, and ye
clothed me ; sick and in prison,
and ye visited me."
How does this apply to the liquor
dealer, manufacturer or seller?
Let the Judge ask of the liquor
"Hid you feed the hungry ?"
"No. I made the hungry more
hungry and took from him the
means by which he might have
'Did you give the least of my
Drethren drink ?"
"Yes. I gave him drink, but in instead
stead instead of rt freshing him it turned
into fire within him and made him
less a man. It cursed him,"
"Did you find him naked and
"No. I found him clothed and
in his right mind, and I took from
him his garments and left him na naked,
ked, naked, in poverty and distress."
"Did you find him in prison and
visit him ?"
"No. I found him happy in his
liberty, with father, mother, sisters
and brothers, or wife and children,
active and free and honorable in
business, and I lowered him from
his freedom and placed him in
prison in shame and wretchedness
