Somo months ago, just how many It
docs not matter, tlicro nppcarcd in St.
Louis, u young mini, who nfter n short so
journ in that city, secured employment In
a certain llfn association. He worked faith
fully, nnd soon won tho good opinion of
his employers, and wasoonsldered an ex
cellent man for tho position he filled. Ho
was addicted to strong drink, howover,
nnd every now and then would go off on n
spree. Notwithstanding his distipated
habits, ho managed to accumulate n amall
amount of money, and wishing to frco
himself of an oppctitu for strong diink,
of l)ls own free will und accord entered n
certain asylum for the euro of inebriates.
In this Institution ho rcmalnod six months.
At tho expiration of that time, bcliov
ing himself thoroughly cured, ho
went to his home in tho tar cast.
He told his parents of his experience in
tho west, what lio had go no through, nnd
that ho would never drink any more. Tho
fatted calf was killed, and thoro was re
joicing in the household, for the prodigal
son had returned and would sin no more
An undo of tho young man n gentleman
who ii known, nt least by reputation,
to almost ovcry citiron of Cairo was in

The undo being n heavy stockholder in n
silver mino near the city of 3Icxico, se
cured his naphew tho appointment of su
perintendent of tho mine. Tho father set
about getting his son ready to enter this
new field of dutv. He purchased for him
everything that lio believed would add to
his comfort and happiness. Tho day ror
the departure camo, and with St the father
presented his beloved boy with something
over three hundred dollars in money. Tho
young man wished to see his undo before
leaving for Mexico, and determined to
cemo by wavol the Pittsburg, Fort "Wayne
and Chicago railway, tn route to a certain
southern city v. here that gentleman resides
At Crestline, 0., while tn route wet,hc met
a friend who induced him to remain over for
