'ritnt prohibition has bcun a suu
cess in Jluinu for the past HO years,
tho best of authorities testify. Hon.
iS'oal Dow says, "No matter who
says it, the assertion that the Maine
law lias failed in Maine is false.
On the contrary, it. lias been a great
btieeoss from 'the beginning. In
more than iiiree-iuurins oi our
State, containing more than thrco
fotulhs of our population, the liquor
trallie is practically unknown, so
that an entire generation has grown
up, free from its teuiplationsn
iS'inetecn-twenticths of the liquor
Irallic has been suppressed, and the
fires of every distillery and biewery
have been extinguished." It is a
suecess in Iowa and Kansas, where
the open saloon is forcd lo retire,
and the brilliant gateways to hell
which glare before our eyes here on
every corner, day and night are
unknown. It will be a greater
success everywhere as its benellts
become known and the friends of
temperance unite in securing its en
forcement. A happy day will tlawn upon
America when the fourteen hun
dred million dollars now annually
spent for alcohol shall go for food
and clothing and to make happy
homes: when the 17."), 000 saloons
that curse the land shall be wiped
away ; when the 000,000 diunkards
shall become peaceful citizens, and
worthy fathers, aiid sons and hus
bands. Happy will the day bo for
little Hawaii nei, when better men
shall give us better laws; when the
$850,000 yearly spent here for that
which is degrading and destroying
the nation, shall be used in educat
ing and elevating our nation's people,
not only, but the people from all
lands who throng our shores, when
the efforts of those high in power
shall he not indeed to restore to
this people the ways of their heathen
ancestors, but lo emulate the ex
ample of Kamcliamelia III and the
chiefs of his day, whose influence
was in favor of temperance and
righteousness, and to raise from the
dust where it lies, the Hawaiian
national motto, "The life of the
nation is perpetuated by righteous
ness." For such a consummation,
let us labor, and hope, and prav.

THE I0INT OF DEATH
wiir.x nissOi.UTio.v ocoimss a mat-
IKlt Or tlltAVi: UXCKKTAINTY.
Although usually it is easy to tell
when dissolution has occurred, yet
there are cases which occur from
time lo time rendering the matter
one of very grave uncertainty. The
point at which the soul relinquishes
the body is among the most dillicult
things lo establish. Poihaps this
uncertainty is one of the reasons
why there is such curiosity as to
death-beds and last words. We
are anxious to know bow affairs
appear to those who are passing"
away. They are undergoing the
great change through which every
one must pass. How does it look to
tlieiu? Very little more informa
tion is to be gathered from the
dying than from the death. Cer
tain inferences may bo drawn fiom
the surroundings the departing
color, the cold, deepening stare,
the gioan, the rattle in the throat,
the stiffening limbs; but they are
as likely to mislead as not. And
the same may be said of the death
sayings. They aie as enigmatic
as the declarations of the oracles.
We may take sometimes half a do
zen meanings from them, as, fof in
stance, Goethe's "More light!"
Was it the sense of earthly darkness
growing around him, or was it the
breaking of light upon his vision, or
was there yet some deeper signifi
cance in the exclamation? Medical
works show that people have been
resuscitated fifteen, twenty and
even Unify minutes after apparent
death. Ilelden, the highwayman,
is said to have been dead tluee
quaiters of an hour. His body was
cut down after hanging that length
of time and was handed over to his
friends after a thorough examina
tion. That night he was seen as
well as ever, except for a stiffness
of the neck, l'ryce, the Norwich
miser, was dead as Ciusar, accord
ing to those about him, and until
some thoughtful person, disti listing
the warmth of his hands adminis
tered a fctiinulaiil. lie arose, and
lived yearn afterward. Cases of
mere trance are almost innumerable.
Supposed deaths fiom drowning
show that resuscitation may tako
place thhty or forty minutes after
all life has apparently left tho
body. The question as lo what be
comes of the boiil in this long inter
val is tho ono which puzzles many.
Rut tho chief point of the matter is
that physicians and friends should
not too readily accept appear
ances in the critical hour. There
may, as in the Fraser instance, be
yet some spark of life remaining.
As Dr. l.ackorstein claims, there is
absolutely no reason why, with tho
resources ho employed, at hand, any
one should dio of an overdose of
chloroform or from a shock while
undergoing a surgical operation.

MllS. SttWAuT'S LIFE AND BURIAL
Tho crypt where Sirs, Stewart is
buried is u big room, circular in
form, immediately beneath the
altar. Sunken into tho stone lloor
are two deop graves, one of which
is supposed to conceal all that is
loft or Mr. Stewart, and tho othor
holds his wife. Mrs. Stewart's
eollln was placed in a leaden casket,
heiinetically scaled, and then in
cased in an outer box of chestnut.
A heavy slab was then rolled above
the grave and a massive urn of
stone was placed above it. A
similar urn marks the other tomb.
A New York journal of social
pretensions says that during Mr.
Stewait's life but little of his vast
fottune found its way into Mrs.
Stewart's hands. All the great
slorus in the city were instructed to
give her unlimited credit, but ready
money she was permitted to enjoy
only rarely and in economic sums,
ami people who appealed to her for
charity were, the same authority
says, frequently denied from sheer
necessity. Happier lives than hers
it was not hard to discover. Caring
little, if anything for hooks, without
the resources of a well-equipped
society woman, she turned to the
opera as her chief amusement in the
hours that could not but drag. She
was weary of life lung before the
curtain went down on its final act,
and frequently spoke of its disap
pointing joys. Vhen finally the
death of her husband made her mis
tress of more than she could well
command, the power lo enjoy il had
long been gone, and she was even
less happy than before. So, at
least, mns the story. New York
