A SAD BUT TRUE STORY.
It was on my return from the lat4
State convention of C. T. W.'s that the
scene of this story was given, whici
filled my heart with so much pity, ani
a desire to try more than ever to ric
our State of its curse of liquor.
As I was entering the car door ii
Columbia, making my last change foi
my home, I saw two men in the aisle,
one standing near the cooler. I pait
very little attention to them, bu
thought they were drinking, as I de
tected the odor of whiskey.
I went in and took my seat with m3
little girl, Hallie. Presently I heard
boisterous talking just behind me. Ii
a little while a man of robust statue,
and showing by his face an Irish de
scent, passed me and returning begat
to ask me questions and to play witi
Hallie. Then it was I discovered. he
was drinking, and was one of the met
I saw at the cooler. Some passengel
tried to keep him seated and entertain
ed, but he persisted in walking up anc
down the car, talking and makingj
speeches. The conductor became im
patient and demanded that he be seat
ed and have respect for the ladies.
Some five or six seats in front of me sat
a little girl about ten years old, alone,
so he took a seat by her. I asked of a
gentleman friend if that was his little
girl, and he said yes. Being restless
and nervous he soon began to walk the
aisle again, leaving the little, one is
tears and making his way into the
smoker. Seeing the child in tearsI
went to her and said: "Little one,
why are you in so much trouble?" She
replied: "My papa is drinking and
wants to drink more." In her custody
he had placed a quart bottle of liquor
bearing the palmetto. I said: "Does
your papa drink all the time?" She
answered: "No, main." Where is your
home? "I live at-." Knowing
there were some good women there at
work for temperance, I naturally asked.
Do you belong to a Band of Hope? She
said, "Yes main." I tried to comfort
the distressed child, and finally her
tears were dried for awhile. I returned
to my seat and insisted that Hallie car
ry hersome lunch, but she said, "No,
ramma, I'm afraid he might get me
Then I started and she pulled me back,
crying mamma, he might get you,so for
her ease I kept my seat. Scarcely had
I done so when in he came again, went
to the child, took the bottle and poured
out the liquor into the cup at the coolet
and drank in view of all the passengers.
The conductor coming into the ear
tried to appeal to him by pointing tc
his little girl in tears, but it had no ef
fet. His sense of feeling a.nd love wai
hidden away under the effect of liquor.
When his station was called the little
irl was the first to alight and the last
I saw of her she was running as fast as
she could, I suppose to, prepare her
mother for what was coming, while he]
father staggered home alone. Someone
made some jeering remark and the
conductor replied, I am glad to get rid
of him at any price. Had there been
no dispensary in Columbia I feel sure
tat man would have never been in
that disgusting, pitiable condition, not
his sweet little girl's feelings so morti
fed and heart so near broken, for she
said he never done that way before.

HOW TO sAVE YOUR SONS.
The mother whd studies and compre- -
hends the restless, aggressive natureo of
her growing boys will understand some
thing of what is necessary upon her
part if she is to save them from for
saking their home for demoralizing in
fluences and evil companionships. -
Mothers ought to understand the nature
of developing manhood. A writer in
one of the magizines says: "It is ex
cessively restless It is disturbed by
vague ambitions, by thirst for action,
by longings for excitement, by irrep
resible desires to touch life in- manifold
ways. If you, mothers, rear your sons
so that their homes are associated with
the repression of natural instincts, you
wil be sure to throw them ito the so
ciety that in some measure can supply.
the need of their hearts. They will not
go to the public houses at first for* love
of liquor-very few people like the
taste of liquor; they go for the ama

lessness in their breasts. See to it, then
that their homes compete with public
places in attractiveness. Open your
blinds by day and light bright fires by
night. Illuminate your rooms. Hang
pictures upon the wall. Put books and
newspapers upon your tables. Have
music and entertaining games. Banish
demons of dullness and apathy that have
so long ruled in your household, and ..
bring in mirth and good cheer. Invent
occupations for your sons. Stimulate
their ambitions in ,worthy directions.
While you make hbme their delight,
fill them with higher purposes than
mere pleasure. Whether they shall
pass boyhood and enter upon jnanhood
with refined tastes and noble ambi'tions
depends on you. Believe it possible
that, with exertion and right means, a
mother may have more control over the
destiny of her boys than any other in
