Half Hearted Temperance Men.
Wc find tlirm In every township. and
some specimens are standing around loose
in almost every community. The msn
who in J nut as good a tcmperanre man as
you are, bnt he don't believe in belniso
particular about driukinff a little cider,
he has always done so, and hi father done
m before him, and wan none the wim for
It. Bnch men are willing to i)npledire
that prohibit rum, brandy, etc., but th
minor drinks, such aa beer or elder, he
will not sign away his liberty. We also
find them in the ranks of the editors of
some of the political journals of the pres
ent day; men who will hesitate for weeks
before they will publish a strong temper
ance article for fear it may endanger the
success of their party in the state. The
temporaDce movement wanta no such men
in the ranks as that, but the pressing need
of the hour Is men of thought, men of ac
tion, men who have positive convictions
of right and wrong , men who will act up
to their convictions and stand np to their
nrinelnlea whether thev are in the minori
ty, or in the majority. Wo want such
men In the temieranoe ranks so far as in
flexibility of purpose, and astern ad Iter
ance to the right Is concerned, as came
over in the May-flower, aud parted the
gerniB of civil and religious liberty. No
reformatory movement will ever succeed
until such men take hold of it and infuse
lite and vitality in the ranks by exerting a
utmnir rontrofinif influence in moulding
and shaping public sentiment until It iets
to that point when it will be safe and right
to legislate upon the subject bnch men
are generally in advance of the age in
which thev live, but time vindicates them
as being In the right. There are men in the
temperance ranks to-aay, wtiom ma worm
and the hike-warms call ultra and radical,
that ten years from now will be looked
upon with more respect than they are to
day. In all great reforms the great ma
jority look at their own immediate sur
roundings, aud its supposed effects upon
them to-day, rather than In the future,
whether remote or otherwise. It is the
want of the age that we have not enough
men of the right stamp enlisted, who have
a vision enlarged and comprehcnalve
enough to take in all the bearings and
grand posslhilitleslhat are attached to the
cause they espouse. I rejoice that there
are so many noble men and women to-day
that are laboring for the success of the
temperance cause, and it is because these
men and women are working Just as they
are that we look for the final triumph of
tcmerance principles In society and la
legislation. One by one the milk and
water men will drop out of the ranks, and
their places will be filled by others who
will stand out In the sun light of God's
eternal truth, and do vallenlly In the bat
tle between truth and error.
We have a firm and abiding faith 111 tho
llnal triumph of temperance principles,
as founded, not In man's opinions or
judgment, but in the eternal principles of
right, as enunciated by the word of God.

unimproved land, once Intended for a city
park, but looking with its scattering live
oak trees, like one of onr own grassy apple
orchards. This is this city duelling ground
and has witnessed many a bloody encoun
ter, one not long ago.
The most aristocratio place ot city resort
is the grounds of the Louisiana Jockey
Club. In front of the entrance gate is a
lodge, where stands the sentinel gate keep
er demanding the written pass, without
which you cannot hope to enter, and this
must be obtained from a member of the
club. Formerly anr one who should grant
such a pass to any citizen of the town was
subjected to a fine of twenty-live dollars,
hut ladies might bo escorted there by any
Jockey Clublte, and so might any gentle
man guest from abroad. A broad carriage
drive leads from the gate, on either side of
a circular garden jSlat, up to the stairs of
the Club liouse. This is an imposing build
ing, three stories in height, with a man
sard root and a cupolo. There are statues
on each side of the stairs, mounted on high
pedestals. Reaching the vestibule you are
mot by a polite mulatto, who invites yon
into the ofllc to register your name, and
then condu'.'ta you all about the house.
There are two billiards rooms, and some
handsome parlors, and in the refectory the
furniture is of black walnut, elaborately
carved. From the cupolo the view Is ex
tensive and charming. The grounds below
are one continuous garden to their bonn
driesj orange trees bending with fruit be
ing most conspicuous; and here, I, by per
mission, plucked my first orange and broke
off my first spray of its snowy blossoms.

bright yellow fruit with small brown seeds
at itscent.ro. Beside the Club liouse, and
oonnectcd with it by a coverod archway is
the bowling alley a handsome building
two stories in hoiifht. Passing beneath tlie
archway, you follow the road to the stables,
mtn ilnttanne bevond. where are kent the
costly horses of tfieulubi and to the right
of these are the fine race-course and the
grand stand. Still further on, you see the
all buihtines nertaininc to the fair grounds.
t tlie left is an aristocratic oeineterv, uut
had already seen enough of these incar
cerations above ground, and of the 1 voly lit-
ie lizards which swarm over the costly
marbles. Returning, we found that the
gardener hod made up for us some lovely
bouquets, f or these he is prohibited by
rules of the club house from taking pay,
but we did induce him to take a "tip for

accented with some demur. In the palmy

terprise iu Washington, is at present I
common complaint. The thread-bare plea
of depression of trade may cover a nuilfi
tude of short-comings and sins, but it is
an insufficient explanation of the fact. It
may be that, aa is said, a fall in bread
is immediately followed by an inoroase in
bands. But the principle, if applicable to
a struggling proletariat, oan scarcely be
extended by the most charitable of interpret
ers to those endowed with a full share of
this world'a goods and graces. Yat it Is over
these last that the ohnpemns lament moat
bitterly. ' Amid the Complex web of cir
cumstances which give rise to periodical
oycle pf anti-matrimonial prejudice, there
are certain well defined notions whiuu
cloud the ont-look of the eligible butche-
or. Partly passing shadows of latter day
conditions, they combine to form a gloomy
background to the sunnier aspects of mar
ried, life, Tbe visionary Ideal of love in a
cottage, has faded amid the common light
of a toiling and moiling humanity, fever
stricken bysnoial rivalries, Happiness has
been defined, and has lost its bloom In the
process. "Married and marred" is the
popular criticism passed by his ootempo
rarie on the occasional viotitn to a des
perate matrimonial designer.
It Is roundly assorted that Americans in
fashionable Hie, have lost the power of
tailing in love. Perhaps, to the fluttering
heart of the dibulanlt Miss Emma, the
partner in every danoe ia a possible part
ner fur life. In American urban society,
home spun aentimont is past praying for.

To some, matrimony seems a sea of troub

of marriage aa the gateway to liberty, is
not confined to France; and virtue haa
been eynically defined as the absenoe of

Tiik Burglar Panic. There is
an aspect of a burglar panic which
is fsr from oomio, When, alter un
hour's peaoeful sleep, one ia disturb

gin. We nsk what she is doing,
"Listening" is her reply. The sug
gestion thai bIio should lie down and
go to sleep, is snubbed by an author
itative but alarming, "Ilush." Na
ture asserts itself and we again doze
to be immediately awakened by the
words, "1 ntn quite sure I heurd a
noise." We otfer to get up and
take a walk through the house to
see if any thieves are in it. "Oh,
no, for goodness' sake don't do
that," is the reply, Of course, one
guts a refreshing night's rest after
this little episode. On another night
at two in the morning, one of the
dogs is heard to bark. We look
round, and finding all quiet, give it
us our opinion that he must have
heard the gamekeeper walking round
the house, or that, if gome thieves
had come with burglarious designs,
thuy have been certainly frightened
away by his barking. His furious
noitte gradually subsides into occa
sional melancholy "yaps," until,
after a dismal howl or two, he be
comes silent. At last we drop off to
sleep, but in a few miuutes we are
once more disturbed with, "My
dear, there ia that doff arain." On
one ocoasion there conld be no doubt
that a noiso had boon really heard,
and we had been allowed to venture
forth with plenary powers. After
examining the lower part of the
house we had taken a dark lantern,
and had sallied forth and made
tour of the outside of tho building.
After a fruitless search for thieves
and vagabonds, we had roturncd to
our room, and just settled down
again with a satisfactory sense of
our virtuous and gallant conduct,
when we were aroused by n violent
knocking at the front door and
Jingling ot tlie hall-bell. Oti going
down stairs we may observe that
not one of tbe servants heard the
