them, we should, had we been a in rinber
of the Council, insisted upon sen ing every
body alike. But we do defend the right
of a councilman or uinbody else, to change
his opinion when he persuades, liiinse f that
hi: ought to do so, The g 'litlelneii who
voted "no," explained that they hud given
the matter due reflection, and were con
vinced that the city was neither legully
nor morally bound to pay any Mich
hills. Resting under a conviction of that
kind, they could not, honestly, do otherwise
than oppose their payment. Xo man can
plead one wrong in justification of another;
and had the councilmeii iu question voted
for the payment of fifty such bills, it whs
their duty to change front the very moment
they felt convinced that they were paving
out the public money in violation of law.
The man who doesn't act up to his convic
tions of right; who holds that because ho
was mice wrong he must never get right, is
not the mini for the City Council, orany
other position that covers a public trust.
But, after saying all ihis, we iiw repent

If the city authorities were
very earnestly desirous of the public g',d.
After congregational singing, Dr. Rey
nolds stepped forward, and commenced by
saying that he needed no introduction, be
cause he was at home. He appreciated the
ditlicullies and embarassments under which
his friends who hud proceeded him had
labored, for. although he hud been speaking
day after day and week after week, for
four years or more, he never trembled more
in facing an audience than lie did 1 Inn mid
there. lie did not speak for the love of speak
ing, but because, by the help of God, he
expected to accomplish good by so doing,
The Doctor then indulged in an extended
reference to his own experience, He had
been a drinking man for twenty years, six
yeurs of which time he was n gutter drunk
ard. He commenced by weaving about
himself the "devil's hair" that lurks in the
cider and beer mug and
wine cup. These hairs multiplied and in
the end resolved themselves into a chain
that dragged him to the verge of damna
tion. While thus degraded, friendless and
a pauper in purse, hn resolved to reform.
Ho threw over his shoulder a pick axe, on
ono end of which was Inscribed "I'll find
the road if I can;'' and on the other end,
if I can't Hud one, "I'll dig myself a mud
to respectability," and God helping him he
had dug his road to respectability, for the
man who respects himself Is morally cer
tain to eotninainl the respect of others.
The Doctor then indulged in an npprul
to mn Icrate drinkers. There were moderate
drinkers In the house, no doubt, who re
garded him as n fanatic for even Intimating
that tii r.v were in danger. They scouted
the Idea that they could not drink or let it

easier after he had swallowed the tirst
cup. The man who drinks two glasses
of whisky i twice as drunk ns he is when
he drinks one; when he drinks ten glasses
he is ten times drunker than the single
glass made him, and thus the devil's h.iirs
multiplied; the moderate drinker feeling
fortified against danger, until the infernal
poison so permeates the man that nothing
short of the stoutest resolve, and the fierc
est contest with the demon appetite, can
give him the victory.
To the fathers and mothers of the audi
ence the Doctor made a strong appeal
against cider. It was a dangetnu bever
age, and no father or mother knew, when
placing a cup of the abominable stuff to the
lipsof the child, that they were not, there
by, giving them a w-nd-off toward damna
tion. Tumble the internal miicm tion, dice
and Itox, nut of the house, mid never :ig;iin
give it a place on the family sideboard.
The force of example, the Da-tor held,
was til jMiwerful. "You arc," hede, Ian d.
"your brother's keeper, whether yon think
so or not." Xo man is without his influ
