Great arteries of railroad lines con-
; verged at a huge and massive pile of
; buildings, and wound their curving
lengths across the blooming plain, while
panting iron horses came cavorting
over the grades, some heading for the
massive depot buildings, and others
waking wild, wierd echoes in the
dreamy distance, bounded by blue lines
of clear-limned groves.
Prom tho stately steamer where we
rode at ease upon the bu.-y river I could
see all this, and with my anxious chil

of anld lamj syne.

would for other objects of interest,!
nothing could I see but tho shrunken
form of the abject and ragged inebriate.
Gracefully the steamer Mid into her
proper niches in the dock; crowds of
hotel runners performed their usual
ridiculous bellowing farce ; locomotives
sent forth their warning shrieks from
brazen-throated lungs; signal whistles
from other steamers answered to our
own, and amid the strange confusion we
were ushered out into a waiting cab,
and ordSrs being given by the doctor.
we Avere soon whirling away toward his
elegant home, upon a gentle eminence,
wnere taste and beauty reigned sole
master of the pleasant situation.
Again I saw the bent and trembling

moments before had so deeply inter

"I should rather say so !" was the
quick reply. "I Hat is your sister
Sarah's husband;" and signalling the
driver ta stop we reined up alongside
the poor, miserable wreck of his early
manhood, the man who had promised
to love, cherish and protect the sister of
my sddeneiChUdhood, -Jlhe beautiful
and blooming girl whom my dear
mother had always contemplated with
such peace and satisfactidn,hwliHeT, the

-Halloa, Harry!" was the doctor's
A general introduction was next in
order,-and my brother-in-law, in an
swer to Dr. Armstrong llcarty Invi
tation, took a seat with us in the ve
hicle, and we all drove up toother to
the doctdVs luxurious home. "ailcr l
Mrs. Armstrong was absent on a vi-H
to the South, -but the house was S
presided over by a matrouly and
ant woman, the doctor's daughter,

nursed in my old-time three yean,' real
dence at-the doctor's once frugally aj.
My brother-in-law came tottering
feebly up the marble steps. Garrulous
he grew and troublesome. My children
shrank back aghast Irom his advances,
but for my poor sister's take I tried
hard to be agreeable. Seeing our dis
corafiturc, Dr. Armstrong proposed to
engage a cab and bend tlie babbling in
truder home. I resolved to accompany
him ijand Icavingyruy - cbildrenLwith
cxrcllcntrfriciuls, Ilrbvc with my
disgusting relative to the home of my
sister, some M!vcn miles away.
'How many children have you,
Henry?" . t . 4 ,
"A dozen or so, I reckon. Sally
knows more about it 'an I do."
"I heard that some of your sons, my
nephews, werc killed, during the late

"Yes, yes, so they was. Sally grieved
powerfully over their death, but a
woman will do that, you know. 'Pears
to me it don't make much difference, no
way. The boys might a' growed up in
temperate, you know."
And then, witli a disgusting egotism
and pharisaical sanctity which I have
so often noticed in drunkards who are
"half seas over" but determined to ap
pear sober, he broke forth in a torrent
of Invective against drunkenness, add
ing that, as for him, he of course "knew
when to stop drinking. A glass a man
can take once In a while, you know, bu-
bu-bu-but a d-d-drunkard's the ni-m-m-meanest
work of God."
The liquor that tho poor sot had swal
lowed just before the steamer landed
was doing Its effectual work, and long
before we reached my sister's squalid
home the drunken wretch was snoring
in the bottom of the cab, and I was
living in the dreamy and distant past.
Many familiar landmarks greeted me,
but a pall of sadness settled over all.
Finally we drove up in front of my
sister's cabin home. A half dozen un
kempt and frightened children flocked
around the door-way; and my once
blooming and beautiful, but now faded
and drooping sister came -wearily out to

was my only reply.
The driver dismounted and helped
my intoxicated brother-in-law to arouse
himself sufficiently to alight My sis
ter's husband made a few staggering at
tempts to walk, and then rolled help
lessly over on the grass. Poor. Sarah
looked so deeply mortified that I has
tened on to ilio house, pretending not
to further notice the disgusting and
loathsome object whom I had once
known as a strong and brave and noble
fellow, for whom she poor, stricken
child ! had staked a woman's all, and
My own hard lot ecnled to suddenly
grow Ilglit. To devise some plan by
which to aid my helpless sister was my
foremost thought, but to my tortured
mind no ray of help or succor came.
.Making our way tnrougu tiio group!
of nigged, barefoot children, we entered
the wretched abode, and I throw myself giving orders with the air of a sover

I made strong effort to calm my own
intense emotion. Gently stroking the
thin, silvery locks of w'lieh I had once
been so proud, and clawing the sallow,
hard and bony hand that once had been
so plump and rosy, I spoke cheerfully,
assuming a composure and happiness I
did not feel.
"Pshaw, sister mine ! Cheer up and

came to you because I am in trouble,
and I need your help."

gressed but slowly.

The long interchange of explanations

being well known to the general reader,
I will not repeat
The day had passed into the gloam
ing, and still we sat engaged In earnest
conversation. When itcame my sister's
turn to tell her sad story, my own trials
paled into insignificance. For a few
years after her marriage all had gone
well. Then Henry began to gradually
grow intemperate, and the habit had
rowu upon him until for twenty years
his life had been a burden and a terror.
Fifteen children had been the result of
their unholy union. Two of these had
fallen in their country's service on the
Southern plains. Another noble boy

coming a prey to ircnzy, uau um

Two of the younger children were epl -

daughters werc comfortably married
and were mothers of sprightly children.
Two had died iu infancy, and tlie re
maining seven were at iouie, depend

feeble effort for livelihood and educa

commented the mother, sadly.
"I'm too old to curse the world with
more such children as my four last
helpless ones. The baby that died
would never have known anything. I
am certain that more than half
my children were tne uirect oii
spring of a brutal state of Intoxication."
"JJutTd see a man' hanged beforcI'd
stand that ! so, there I" T said indig
Ah, Judith ! you don't know what
you'd do !" was the sorrowful reply.
"But I know what I did.'"
Then followed a racy recital of my
spirited and victorious struggle for the
ownership of my own hotly, of which
the .sagacious jeailer alrea'dy possesses
"But, Judith, you were always firm,

"Tut, tut! Nonsense! The Bible

"Hush, Judith! Don't blaspheme!

"But I declare that the Bible does not

A shriek in the back kitchen, accom
panied by sounds as of some one strug
gling for life, attracted us to tho spot,
and there upon the floor, with his head
and heels drawn backward till they met,

hands pinioned, until. I had no need to
wonder that her elasticity of life and
limb was gone.

My brother-in-law had at length
awakened from tho drunkard's sleep,
lie came tottering into the kitchen,
where confusion reigned, and began
yet, and this sister of ours come all the
way from the se-sct-tin' sun to visit
us? All! if I only'h-had a w-wife
that h-had some snap about her ! Kill
a chicken and fix up soincthin' good to
cat, why don't ye?"
Sarah looked up from the floor where
the struggling sufl'erer lay with an ap
lealing look-that froze my blood.
"Never mind, sister dear," I said
soothingly. "Don't make extra trou
ble on my account. Just make some
mubli ; you know I like it."
So tlie mush was made, and ourselves
and the children maitle nhcarty meal,
the worthy head of the family slipping
off to sleep, forgetful, for tlte nonce, of
Ids high dignity.
The children milked the only cow and
finished up the necessary chores, and as
soon as possible my sister and myself
wearily settled ourselves for sleep,
looked in cadi other's arms, Just as we
had done iu childhood, before care or
real trouble came.
It must have been tlireo o'clock in the
morning when I became conscious that
my sister was gently pleading with the
brute who, claiming a husband's pre
rogative, was expostulating with her in
a sulMlued but angry voice. T was so
terrified that I thought T should faint,
but I lay rigidly still until the fiend's
importunities became unbearable. I
had noticed a broom-stick on n ledge
behind the bedstead before going to
sleep, and remembering where it was, I
seized it and dealt a blow upon the
drunkard's head that sent him reeling
to the floor. He staggered off, mutter
ing vengeance, but I no longer felt any
sense of fear. s
"That's" the way to treat "thcruntcn
dog ! so, there !" I said vehemently.
"Don't, Judith, Don't! He's the
father of mj children !"
"And ucA children VJ it was on, my

For two days and nights I remained
at the squalid home, and then, hailing a
passing team, took my departure for the
city, inwardly resolved to do some dar-
Ing'deed to rescue my poor sister.
The man upon whose kindness I had
depended for the ride gave me many
particulars of my sister's history which
tho dear, stricken creature, woman-like,
had hoped to hide. Their home, poor as
it was, had long been mortgaged to the
whisky merchants, and execution was to
be but little longer stayed. My sister had
supported her family, much as our
mother had done during her own hard
life. But sister's health failed through
her many trials. One by one their cat
tle, horses, sheep and swine had disap
peared in payment for rum, leaving
nothing for her to work upon, and the
one cow that was left belonged to
neighbor, for whom my sister did plain
sewing for tho use of her.
I reached the doctor's house in a state
of mind bordering on despair.
The few hundred dollars with which T
had left my far western home remained
untouched, Dr. Armstrong having man
aged to furnish our travelling tickets
without a draft upon my means; hut
that small sum was all 1 had, and what

visited tills country in 1818, 1820 and
1825, and died iu Cincinnati, on the 2d
of December, 1852, aged fifty-seven. She
excited much comment, by her leveling

Is something unusal. She wrote a trag
edy called "Aitorf," in 1810: "Views of

which ran through four editions, and
was translated into French, published
in 1820, and republished, with alterna

These were followed by a course of

through six editions. She was also the

do it on an implied promise that, if pro
tected for once, they will then do it no
more. They ought to move through
the streets of New York until nobody
thinks of molesting them. When that
time arrives, it will be an attempt of no
public importance whether the annual
procession is kept up or not. Dutaslong
as a dog wags his tongue against an
Orangemen's procession, ora bewildered
magistrate forgets his duty toward them,
the public good requires their continu
ance. If tlie Orangemen of New York
do not next year march through the
streets of tlie city, they will betray a
sacred dut y. By accident they have be
come representatives of a principle
which lies at the foundation of modern
civilization. They do not now represent
a spent fact in history, but a living
principle. It is not the Battle of the
Boyne in Ireland, but tlie question of
liberty In New York.
Philadelphia turns out a batch of

Tiio first case ho had was a boy, who,
while shelling pop-corn, got a kernel in
his wind-pipe. Tlie doctor examined
the case carefully, looked at the patient's
tongue and then told the father of the
boy to build up a hot lire. When that
was done the doctor told them to take
tlie boy and hold over the lire until tlie
kernel got hot enough to "ixip out."
