this morning in the Academy of
Music, Brooklyn, and this evening in
New York. The text of the doctor's
seirnon was taken lrom Genesis ix, 2u,
21: ''Noah planted a vineyard, and he
drank of the wine and was drunken."
This Noah did the lest anu the worst

cover up the disgrace, but there he is,
drunk on wine at a time in the history
of the world, when, to say the ieast,
there was no lack of water. Inebriation,
having entered the world, has nut
retreated. Abigail, the iair and heroic
wife,.who saved the tlocks of ZS'abal,
her husband,from confiscation by invaders,
goes home at night and liuds
him so intoxicated she cannot tell him
the story of his narrow escape. Uriah
came to'see David, and David got him
drunk and paved the way fur the despoliation
of a household. Even the
church bishops needed to be charged
to be sober and not given to too mucu
wine, and so familiar were people ot j

Ever since apples and grapes and

innocent beverage, a harmless ciangeade.

An arch liend arrived in cur worid,
v and he built an invisible caldron of
temptation. lie built that caldron
strong and stout for ail ages and all
nations. First he squeezed into the |
caldron the juices or the forbidden
fruit of i^aiadise. Then he gathered
for it a distillation from the harvest
heids and the orchards of the hemis
pneres. 1 ben he poured into this caidron
capsicum and copperas and logwood
and deadly nightshade and assault
and battery and vitiioland opium
and rum and murder and sulphuric i
acid ana theft and potash and cochi-!

death and hops. But it was a dry com-!

it must be liquelied, and so the arch |

Drunkenness is the greatest- evil of
this nation, and it takes no logical process
to prove to this audience that a
drunken nation cannot long be a tree
nation. I call your attention to the
fact that drunkenness is not subsiding,
certainly that it is not at a standstill,
but that" it is on an onward march, and
it is a double quick. There is more rum
swallowed in this country, and of a
worse kind, than was ever "swallowed
since the first distillery began its work
of death. Where there was one drunken
home there are ten drunken
homes. Where there was one
drunkard's grave there are twenty
drunkards' graves. It is on the increase.

for the arrest of this eril and for the

ilormonism! It is safe to attack that
organized nast.iness tsvo thousand
miles away. Uut not one resolution
against drunkenness, which would turn
tins entire nation into one bestial Salt

corruption, but not one word about
drunkenness, which would rot this nation
from scalp to heel, llesolutions i

I look in another direction. The
Church of God is the grandest and
mo^t jjiorious institution on earth.
What has it in solid phalanx accomplished
for the overthrow of drunkenness?
Have its forces ever been marshaled
? 2s o, not in this direction. JS'ot
long ago a great ecclesiastical court assembled
in New York, and resolutions
arraigning strong drink were offered,
and clergymen with strong drink on
their tables and strong ilrmk in their
cellars defeated the resolutions by
threating speeches. They could not
bear to jjive up their own lusts.

?if all such would march side by side
and shoulder to shoulder, this" evil
would soon be overthrown. Think of
three hundred thousand churches and
Sunday schools in Christendom marching
shoulder to shoulder! How very
short a time it would take them to put
down this evil, if ail the churches of
Cod, transatlantic and cisatlantic, were
armed on this subject?
Young men of America, pass over
into the army of teetotalism. Whiskey,
good to preserve corpses, ou<ht never
to turn you into a corpse. Tens of thousands
of young men have been dragged
out of respectability, and out of purity,
and out of good character, and into
darkness by tftis internal siuu caueu
strong drink. Do not touch it! Do not
Gather up the money that the working
classes have spent l'or rum during I
the last thirty years, and I will build
for every workingman a house, and lay
out for him a garden, and clothe his
son-; in broadcloth and his daughters
in silks, and stand at his front door a
prancing span of sorrels or bays, and
secure him a policy of life insurance so
that the present "hoi:;.1 may be well
maintained after he is dead. The most
persistent, most overpowering enemy
of the workihg classes is intoxicating
liquor, it is the anarchist of the centuries,
and has boycotted and is now
boycotting the body and mind and soul!
of American labor. It annually swindles
industry out of a large percentage
of its earnings. It holds out its blasting
.solicitations to the mechanic or
operative on his way to work, and at
the noon spell, and on his way home at
eventide. * On Saturday, when the
wages are paid, it snatches a large part
of the money that might come to the
family and sacrifices it among the saloon
keepers. Stand the saloons of this
country side by side, and it is carefully
estimated that they would reach from
.New i orK to Chicago.
This evil is pouring its vitriolic and
damnable liquors down the throats of
hundreds of thousands of laborers, and

About 7 o'clock last night Sewers's
friends came to the house. Johanna
kept asking for tiie money and Sewers
became angry. Hot words were exchanged
and soon a fight was in progress
between husband and wife. During
the struggle, in which Johanna was
the aggressor, "her" skirt fell off, displaying
a pair of black trousers. Every

and lull of light as they had been at
any time during the session. They
were loyal to the Speaker and awaited
the proper occasion to manifest the fact.
It soou came. Xo Democrat having
prepared the usual vote of thauks to
the Sneaker, McKinley arose and offered
a resolution thanking the Speakerfor
the able and impartial manner in
which he had pc-rlbrned his du'.ies.
The IIou-c. which bad been in a buzz
from the many toned whispers of the
members on the floor, lapsed momentarily
into something approaching quiet as
the resolution was read, and Mills arose
in his place. lie disappointed those
persous who hoped tor a vigorous oratorical
display, as he merely demanded
the call of the yeas and nays. Tho call
was proceeded with amid great confusion
due to the fact that nearly every member
had some parting remarks for a neighbor
whom he perhaps might never see
agaiu. When at "last the vote was announced
the Republicans rose en masse,
clapping their hands rigorously, waviuir
winers and books and making the
air resound with cheers, the volume of
sound being swelled by the applause in
the naileries. The applause was renewed,
more vigorously than before as Speak- j
cr Reed entered the hall to relieve Berry
who was temporarily in the chair.
The Democrats jeered at the demonstration.

which followed the declaration of the
speaker that, the Fifty-Grst Congress was

ever "occurred before in a Congress of
the United States. The vocalists of the
House on the Republican side of the
chamber gathered in a body near the
tront row ol desks?headed by Coleman
of Louisiana, Yardley of Pennsylvania,
Stivers of New York and Wade of Missouri?and
as soon as th? House was
declared adjounded they started up
"Marching Through Georgia," which
was taken up by the great mass of
Renublican Representatives who made
the ball rintj to tho great delight and
ediucatiou of the galleries packed full of
The Democratic chorus, headed by
Ilepresentative-elecc John J. O'Xeill of
alissouri, started with the doxologj",
"Praise Gcd from whom all blessings
llow." But their voices were soon
drowned in the superior volume of
sound from the press gallery, the reporters
having taken up the hymn.
Republicans and Democrats alike ceased
their sinking to listen to that of their
some time critics whose full resonant
:horus was very effective.
Burrows and" Allen of Michigan, and
L'olcman with. Yardley, struck up "Our
Fatherland," as tne closing notes of the
lovoloirv died awav. and the llepubli
?-aas joining in very generally the effect
was line, as was the singing of "John
Brown's Body," which was taken up immediately.
The occupants of the press
rallery for the last number on the pro:
run line rendered "Good-Bye, Congress,

regret on the part of the immense throne

They could make only forty cents a

guards, who they say were stationed
about the camp, and made their way to
Charleston, where one of them had banked

What is it that makes women more
smiling aDd happy looking than men?
We meet them on the cars, on the
streets, in the country, by the seashore,
always smiling, teeth a glistening, eyes
a dancing. Ah! the secret is they aim
to please. It is an effort in many instances
for them to smile, and were it
not for a desire to look pleasing and
pretty many would "never smile
again." Why? Because in a lar#e
majority- of ^stances they don't feel
like smiling. They feel more like cryin?.
With their nervous aches, weakness
and bearing1 down pains, life to
