moderation In All Useful ami Total Ab Abstinence
stinence Abstinence In All Harmful Things.
Ill a recent lecture i:i St. Louis, Colo Colonel
nel Colonel George W. B.jiij, the temperance
speaker, said it was far from his purpose
to assert that every man who drinks is a
drunkard. But the fact could not be de denied
nied denied that every drinker has within him himself
self himself the potentiality of a drunkard. We
need but to contrast moderation and to total
tal total abstinence in their ultimate ellect
to see how vastly they differ. Modera Moderation
tion Moderation may lead to drunkenness ; total ab abstinence
stinence abstinence never can. If every drunkard
were to die tomorrow, the ranks of
drunkenness would in time be refilled
from those of the moderate drinkers ;
from the ranks of the total abstainers
they could never bo recruited. Even
granting that drink is a blessing to a
few, the fact remains that it is a curse
to many and a risk to all. Colonel Bain
said that if asked for a definition of
temperance he would characterize it as
moderation in all things useful and
good and total abstinence in all things
hurtful and wrong. Total abstinence, he
said, was the only safe course for the
young man of today. In every city in
the country you can find men exclaiming
in all the anguish of their tortured
souls, ' Drink bus been my curse. ' The
man is yet to be found who will say
that his hfe was wrecked through total
But men will claim that they can stop
drinking whenever they wish. A man
closes his hand. He can open it when whenever
ever whenever he wishes. He keeps it closed for
a whole year, and, behold, when he tries
to open it he finds that the muscles and
tendons of that hand are useless, and it
remains closed forever. So it is with the
will of the moderate drinker he keeps
it in check until it is paralyzed, and
when the time for the great struggle
comes he wavers for a moment 0:1 the
border line and then sinks forever into
the ranks of drunkenness. The conse consequences
quences consequences of drink are visited not only on
the drunkard, but upon his innocent
family as welL Every rose on the bos bosom

Colonel Bain, "is stolen from the cheek
of some one else's wife. Every ray of
sunshine on the.saloon keeper's carpet is

A Sad Calamity.
The newspapers of the day are
filled with harrowing accounts of
cyclones, murders, drownings, sui suicides,
cides, suicides, and railroad wrecks, until
our hearts almost sink within us.
But here at home, almost at cur
doors, is one of the most horrible
and sad affairs we have been called
upon to chronicle.
Harry Goss, a young man in the
prime and vigor of youth, with a
fine intellect, is suddenly cut
down, and his soul ushered into
the presence of the God who cre created
ated created him.
We know very little of his spiri spiritual
tual spiritual condition. Let the mantle of
charity fall over the acts and life
of Harry Goss. It is said that he
was, or had been, drinking. Yes,
it is the same old story we hear
every day. "Somebody's darling"
has yielded up his young life to
the fiend that is carrying so many
to an untimely, early grave.
Well, who is to blame for it ?
The man who sold him the poison
that caused his death is not a bit
more responsible nor more guilty
than the good, moral, genteel, re refined,
fined, refined, qualified citizen, who signed
the petition authorizing the sale of
the horrid stuff.
This state of things will occur
to plague us and then calamities
will occur until the people rise up
in their might and do away with
this monstrous evil, the liquor
STRONG DRINK SETS BAD EXAMPLE.
A saloon keeper going into the
garden one day saw his little boy
and the neighbor's children play playing
ing playing saloon. They had a bench,
bottle and tumblers, and some
were so under the influnce of the
liquor that they staggered. One
of them lay in a drunken sleep.
"Boys, you must not !" the father
said, as he took his six-year-old
boy from the bench. "We's play play-in
in play-in saloon, papa, an I was sellin' it
just like you."
The man poured out the beer,
took the drunken boy home, and
then sat down and cried like a
