Editor Bulletin: The above Is an
expression, embracing an idea that has
proved a delusion and snare to thou
sands. Everyone who has bad any ex
perience In Ufa knows that moderate
drinking Is scarcely a halting place 'oV
the high road to Intemperance, which Is
a melancholy turnpike paved with crush
ed hopes, shattered fortunes, lost honor,
ghastly skeletons and broken hearts, and
Is watered by bitter tears of miserable
parenfs, wretched wives, dtsolute wli
dows and ruined orphans. The Individ
ual who commences to drink
Is In danger, and examples which make
the assertion a truism arc to
be met ' sycry day of I lie year,'
and In - every city, town and
village In the laud. Like other vicious
practices, it Is loathsome to the uncon
Uminatcd, but familiarity disguises its
deformity and reconciles the frull to Its
contact. Who would be u drunkard'; Is
a question which Is promptly answered
by Inexperienced youLhs; and how many,
who Indignantly repudiate the idea, are
in a few years, and frequently in a few
month?, overtaken by the destiny which
seems to them to be impossible'? The
"Vim ii a monttfr Of uch bideoilft main,
A to be hated nrtit but 10 lie seen ;
Birt Kta too aft familiar wi'b ila fux,
, lVfij endure, then filly, t!ie eniLraca."
And multitudes have sadly realized
each line of the graphic picture.
Temperance societies no doubt do
much good and avert much evil, but their
eflorta seem to b spasmodic, Tho
struggle for the preservation of frail hu
manity, to be successful must lie continu
ous and untiring, or It l, too frequently,
but "love's labor lout." The evil ot in
tcmiieraiice Is said to be on the Increase,
and statistics aro quoted which establish
Hie fuel that It is encompassing in Its foul
embrace l.irxe numbers of the fairer and
gentler portion of the human family.
N'ot only among the poor, the ignorant,
and the unfortunate it is extending to
the more rcllned, the educated, and
wealthy. Th's asertlon Is badly made,
but uu array ot facts are displayed which
compel conviction and suggest fcrlous
reflection. A State Temperance Conven
tion, held nt HurrKhurg, Pa., not many
years ago, presents In Its report the fol
lowing official records of applications for
eutry Into the Inebriate Asylum ol Xew
liieh men's daughters H00
This Is certainly a terrific record, and
It appeals to eveiy friend of humanity to
unite In restraining, It it cannot be de
stroyed, an influence which is so fraught
with evil to the whole race. "Good wine,'
as Sago says, may with some le a good
familiar creature, but there is danger,
tieachery and death in its familiarity,
while Its victims have too much reason
to exclaim with CaBsio,
"Evsry inordinaie cn) U anhhaei,
And tli lugreditqi ia a devil."
Temperance societies are commenda
ble Institutions; they have done and will
continue to do much good, as will olno
aiylums, such as are referred to in New
York, but Uie great remedy for the evil
is hrme inAntntt. Precept and practice
should go haud-ln-hand; the seeds of
vice should never be suffered to appear
In the garb ot virtue, or permitted to
contaminate minds only too prone to
receive It. Wheat will not grow from
tares any more than abstinence is likely
to result lrom habits of Indulgence.
While it is true that laws are inadequate to
eradicate the evil complained of, it can
not be denied that Its Influence would be
sreatly circumscribed with proper do-
mesticexample and considerate restraint.
Caibo, Ii.i.s., Nov. 12, 1877.
To Dr. Reynold.
To ilie Editor of the Dl'Lt KTUC:
Without the least Intention of offending
anybody; tar from being opposed to the ef
forts ot Dr. Reynolds in saving humanity
from the iniseiies ot (frankness, wish
to consider the question ot total ab.ttcn
ence from the standpoint of one who is
neither a drunkard nor a Christian.
I attended Dr. Reynold' first meeting,
and was much pleased to hear him say
that ho was governed by no sect; that
though he believed every word the Biblo
contained, he also believed that every
man had a right to worship God accord
ing to the dictates ol his own conscience
That this movement In Cairo was lor all
regardless of religious belief. Yet all
the meetings were opened and closed with
prayer to the Christaln's God. Christian
church songs were sung throughout and
tho meetings closed with the Christian's
benediction. I a short, tho entire pro
cecdlngs were of such a character that
non-Christian could not remain In the
ball without being offended. This dis
regard of the non-Cbrlstlaa In this mat
tcr may seem an insignificant thing in the
minds oi the careless reader, but it will
at once assumo its proper importance In
his estimation when ho takes iutocousld
cratlon the fact that non-ch Uiium only
can consistently sign tho pledge of total
abstcnence. . .
Tho substa'ice of the pledge read by Dr.
Reynolds and signed by tho Christians
is: We, the undersigned, pledge oursel
ves to neither buy, sell nor use lntoxica
ting drinks." This certainly Implies tha
notitmg containing alcohol shall ever be
tasteytf t , ' ' . - '
Now, as Dr. Reynolds himself refers to
the Bible In tistlllcatlon of his position, 1
deem It not amiss to do likewise? All
Chrlstlanflare supposed to believe and act
according to the teachings ot tho lllblc
and tho church. All scnslblo persons
will admit that a person can not pur
posely and knowingly set contrary to
these teachings and 1)0 drhrlsflan,
Tlierelore, to prove that s person can
not be a linn believer In tho Bible as the
word or ;lod t and tot according to its
teachlugs Md the teachings ot the shurch
sud at tho sauie time totally
abstain lrom all alcoholic drinks It Is only
necessary to refer to Dcut. 21-20: which
says: "Though shalt bestow that money
lor whatsoever thy soul lustclh after: lor
oxen or lor sheep, or for wine or tor
strong drink." And agoln, (Prov. 31-4-7.)
"It Is not for Kings, O Samuel! it is not
ior kings, to drink wine; nor for prlnoes
strong drink. Give strong drink unto
him that is ready to perish, and wine unto
those that are heavy ol heart
Let him drink, and forget
his poverty and remember his misery
more." Again, (1 Tim. 6-23 ) "Drink no
longer water, use a little wine lor thy
stomach's sake." These, my dear Christ
ian friends, are what you call the words
of God; but lor tear yon will not onsld
er this conclusive, let me ask: what will
you drink at the next communion?
What will the ministers who signed the
pledge do, when the time
come? to pass the wine cup
to the reformed drinker and ask
him to take that which may reawaken the
terrible cravings for the hellish fluid and
rekindle slumbering fires within his sys
tem, which Is only a foretaste of what
may await him in eternity? I dare say,
an honest minister would at that moment
turn the wine to water, though Christ
would turn water to wine, '

Harry RoW lues's Celebrated Xlnstral
Tioupo at tho Atheneum.
Harry Robinson's celebrated minstrel
combination will give an entertainment
at the atheneum to-night. This troupe
ts beyond question one ot the beat organi
zations ot the kind in the country. Tbe
big feature of the troupe Is Its six end
men. The Burlington Hawkeyt ot OctOi
ber 14th says: of tbe performance or the
troupe In that city;
The olio part, with which the enter
tainment opened, (and which, permit us
to say, U generally so stupid as to create
a wonder why minstrel manaarera do not
tibroxate It altogether) wu particularly
good. Like all the rest ot last evening's
pi riuriuanoe, ii uau ue merit oi origin
ality. Tbe six end men were a show in
themselves. If there had been aix more
ot them, they would bare met in tbe cen
tre. Tommy Sadler's taraborine and
Billy McAllister's bones must be heard
to be appreciated. Belknap as Interlocu
tor, made lots of fun. Cinderella made a
riot of mirth in the ball; and the bass
solo "Come again, bright days," was
excellently sung. . The finale ot the first
part, the bazoo, sextette, was not
only original, but uproarious. The cork
concert and the bellows accompaniment
brongbt down the house like Samson
among the Philistines. The cornet solo
by Mr. Wiley was exquisite. His Instru
ment doesn't blare, it sings delightfully.
The piece he played last night wu yery
dlllkult, but he played it to perfection.
Then came Miss Georgian Robinson, In
blonde hair and a pink toilette, with a
white fan the most bewitching little
maiden you ever saw. Nobody not in
the secret would have supposed she was
a wscally boy. Tne impersonation ol
temiuine eroce and sauciness was snlen-

And then to see those dancinsr lacks.
with tliu silver breeches on! Solid silv
er, and nn mistake! A dancing quintette
whose rerlormance In the clog-dance
were beautifully unique, graceful and
statuesque. Tins elegant dance took tbe
audience by storm, constant rounds of
applause testifying the delight of the
spectators, We thought that nothing
could; equal it, until Billy McAllister
play el Dutch, and gave us that wonder
lul solo on trombones.. "Can these dry
bones live?" 1 hey certainly seemed to
be 'alive. Alter we hail straightened out
in breathless admiration of them. Tommy
Sadler doubled us up again with his
baby elephants. They tramped on him
and tore his clothes until he was the rafr
gedest, but, withal, the jolllest object in
the closing farce that anybody ever saw.
Stiles and Goodyear, In comic dialogue,
and Melby and Pearl In their songs and
dances, were very pleasing, being repeat
edly called back.
Altogether the evening's entertainment
was the best minstrel concert that has
delighted Burlington people for many a
long day. It wu entirely original, and
lull or musical and dramatic merit. It la
but fair to hope that the company will
return before long, when we oan assure
Its members of a cordial reception.
