Jinks drank too much as all lib
fricmlf knew, but. like many another
Rood fellow vhr drinks, It won hard
to convlnr Jinks that he ought to
let up on it. Ho boarded at one of
tho hotels, and nleht after nlRht he
would remain until paxt midnight at
the saloon bar, "hinting" it In, ren
dering It neeensary morning after
morning to have a cocktail brought
up from the saloon before be could get
(Ait of bed, and then another to brace
him up for breakfast.
Finally, - the bar attendant, who
brought up the drink, remonstrated
with him, tellin? htm that, If he eon
tinned his oourra mueh longer, he
would eerUiuly have the "ilm-jams."
The what? " asked Jinks, not ex
"Tho . man with ibe jpoLer get
makes afWr you see things have
tho tremens." - -
"Oh, nonsense," said Jinks, "you
enn't scare me. ; I hnvo drank Juh so
for fifteen years. It never hurts me.
A cocktail or two In the morning and
I'm all right, always."
The bur mun hud more sympathy
tor a nmn on the downward road of
intemperance than most bar men
have, andhedctermlned to give Jinks
a fright. Accordingly, the - next
morning, when the well-Known ring
from J In Its' room was heard, the bar
tender prepared a very enticing glu
rock tall, and placing it on a waiter,
surrounded It with sundry toads, liz
ards, small snakes, Ac. This he con
veyed to Jinks' room, that Individ
ual, who had loaded himself with
"benzine" the night before rather
more heavily than usual, nervously
"Morning," said Jinks, stretching
out a hand that trembled some, "glad
lo see you lovlllsli dry this morning
wftaCt themt" (starting back In
' "Why, what do you mean?" said
the man. In innocent wonder.
"Why the toads, snakes and things
ftronnd the tumbler," said Jinks,
shrinking to the back of the bed and
viewing the loathsome reptiles with
aversion and dismay.
"Why, Jinks, my man, there is
nothing around the tumbler nothing
on the waiter except the cocktail."
' "I tell you there are. I see snakes,
toads and lizards there."
"Ah, Jinks, (with a sigh) t was
afraid how it would be. I told you
yesterday morning, don't you remem
ber. You are, seeing things when
there ain't things to see. You've got
Jinks raised Up in bed. ''Do you
mean to tell me," said ho, "that there
ain't no snakes and things there? "
"Most assuredly I do."
Jinks considered a moment, and
then lying down said. In a sorrowful
voice and with a mild repliant wave
ot tthMA,takc away your cocktail."
The story got out. Jinks fouud that
he was sold, but ho quit drinking, for
every timo he put his noso into a sa
loon where ho used to "Infest," some
ono would sing out- "takeaway your

The Congrcgationallet contains the
following sfory: "A good minister
had long preached to a congregation
of average culture with little appar
ent good result. Thinking the mat
ter over, one Saturday morning, after
ho had finished writing his weekly
sermon, the thought occurred to him
to go down stairs and read it to his
pious, simple-hearted domestic. Ter
tians.' mild he. 'I shoot too liiirli.'
Culling her from her work, ho read a
few sentences, selected as containing
tho clearest uiinouncemcut of the
truth which the sermon was intended
to convey, nnd asked her, 'Poyou un
UcrsUind that'." 'No, sir,' was the
reply. He then extemporized the
same idea in xitnplcr language, and
asked her again, 'Do you understand
that?' A little,' wus her answer
kindling with aii'intcrcst which prov
ed tho truth of her words 'but please,
sir, plain it aliltlc more.' Once more
ho expounded his original Idea lu the
must lucid manner and with tliufuw
wt and shortest words ho could think
of, when she exclaimed with great
ueiignt -1 see it an now, sir, ami
like, It very much.' lie went up
stairs, re-wrote his discourse as nearly
as possiblo in the sumo style us he had
used in his experiment, and went to
church next morning, almost treni'
bling lest his people would bo din
gusted with his preaching. To his
amazement, the very first sentences
seemed to awaken alixten!Dg,stich us
ho had never before leen able to se
cure. And, as he went on, he could
see one eye after another moistening,
until almost his whole oongretration
were visibly touched as he had never
seen them before, and as tho result of
that service more than one came to
him to inquire, 'What must 1 do?'
The effect upon his own mind was
such that ho changed his style of
preaching from that time thoroughly;
declaring that as for him -let others
do what they may he would speak
so as to be unrlmtood by all whom it
was his duty to address.
A rtoarina; Mill Destroyed.
Ttetween three and four o'clock yes
