The harness being adjusted to his satis

beside me, and nodding a la-t good-bye
to the little faces pressed again.-t the window-pane,
we drove oft".
Our cottage was situated in the little
valley lying to the -ouUnwsl of what was
at that time the village of I.anoy, Canada.
A hill of considerable height stood be

I felt as if 1 iiins't leap from the vehicle

seetned to understand that life or death
depended on his efforts, and he exerted
himself nobly. -
On we rlew, down the hill, dashing
through the little stony brook that cross
ed the road over tile f utiibled-down bridge,
whose jotton boards rattled and started
up from their places, past the hedgerows,
that looked like one continuous mass of
flying green ; pa-t little cottages with the
children staring from the doors; thinking
of nothing, earing for nothing but to
rewue our darlings. I buried my face in
my hands, and rocked to and fro in my
seat, almost bereft of reason, as I thought
of the scene that might be awaiting us.
Imagination conjured up all the dreadful
tale I had heard or read to add to my
horror. Once only 1 raised my head, and
-aw. fir fancied 1 saw, slender tongues of
flame cleaving the mass of smoke, which
had by this time increased fearfully in
volume and density.
At lat. after what seemed an age, but
wui in reality only a few minutes, we
reached the bottom of the lane w hich led
to our cottage. The angle was a sharp
one. and we turned with siich a speed las
to send the hind wheel of the old phieton
high in the air.
How I got out I never knew. I am sure
I did not wait for the hor-e to be stopped.

East Tennessee is to be thoroughly
can vassed and organized in the inter
est of the Independent Order of Good
Templars under the auspices of the
Grand Lodge of the State. This Or
der is a temperance organization, do
ing a great and good work In raising
fallen humanity, and educating the
youth of the country and the masses
generally, in habits of sobriety, moral
ity and Christianity. It is the largest
temperance organization in the world,
located lu nearly every land and clime,
and embraces a membership of nearly
one million members of both sexes.
There Is about four hundred Lodges in
full operation, now in our Htate, with
a membership of fifteen thousuid;
this number we hope to double by
the next session of the Grand Lodge
iu October. -
Bro. J F. Goldman, Ihe newly-ap
pointed Lecturer for Eist Tennessee,
is one well qualified for the work he
has undertaken, being an orator of
fine ability, and a tempeiance worker
from principle. He will visit the sev
eral counties in the Eastern division,
lecture and organize Lodges at all eli
gible points during the coming spring
Dr. J. H. Morgan, of Knoxvilie, has
been commissioned as Deputy Grand
Chief Templar for East Tennessee, to
w horn all communications in reference
to the organization of Lodges in his
jurisdiction should be sent, and who
will give all necessary information
relative to the work, etc.

fs Prohibition it Failure T
Vllieland, New Jersey, is one of the
best illustrations, upon a moderate
scale, of the practical workings of
prohibition. Iu his last annual report
the constable and overseer nf the poor
of Vine-laud, Mr. J. J. Curtis (the two
ollices filled by one person), gives tes
timony, the significance, of which is
obvious in its bearing against the li
quor traffic. Mr. Curtis says :
" Though we have a population of
10,000 people, for the period of six
months no settler or citizen of Vitte
land bus received relief at my hands as
overseer of the poor. Within seventy
days, there has been only one case,
among what we call the (touting popu
lation, at the expense of $4.

I ascribe this remarkable state of
things, so nearly approaching the Gol-
uen Age, to the .industry ot our people
and the absence of King Alcohol.
" Let me give you in contrast to this
the state ot things In the town from
which I come in New England. The
population of the town was 9,5'KI, aliu
lie less than V ineland. It maintained
forty Ihiuor shops. These kept busy a
polite judge, city marshal, assistant
marshal, four night-watchmen, and
six policemen. Fires were almost con
tinual. That small place maintained
a pai i lire department of four corn
panics, of forty men each, at an ex
pense of $3,000 per annum. I belonged
to this department for six years, and
the fires averaged about oneevery two
weeks, and mostly incendiary. The
support of the poor cost 2,500 per an
num. The debt of the township was
$120,000. The condition of things in
this New England town is as favora
ble in that country as many other
places where liquor is sold." Nation

Wheat remains inactive and but few deal
ers are offering to buy at any price. Strict
ly prime white in car load lots will bring
from90cei.ts to $1.00. We quote small
lots from 85 cent to 90. Ked is very dull
and low. But little corn changed hands
during the past week, but what was offered
was readily taken at our quotations. Oats
are dull, and as the most of the Southern
orders for seed .have been filled, we look
for a decline duringjthe present week.
Clover seed lias made another, .slight ad
vance and we now quote it from $8.00 to
8.50 per bushel. Owing to the late cold
snapp, the Egg market has been very ac
tive, and shippers paid as high as 23 cents
per dozen, but the market has already
greatly declined, and should the present
fair weather continue, still greater declines
may be ljoked for.
