The?-?' has been an organisation organ

of spf Muons liquors within tho corpo

meeting ?if tho society it was dal mod by
some ol' Its members that there could
not be any liquors sold in (his town
eil her willi or without a prescription.
Others thought at the lime that Drui:

bm examining ?uto ide matter moro
thoroughly they came tn Ibo sum,, eon

and also i he tow o ordinance. The first

on las! Friday. Tho Defendant waa rep
resented hy Col. H W. Dall, assisted by
X. .1 M?lmes, Fs.p, ami Col. lt. D. t'un
itlghsm on the part of the'Powe Council.
Col. Dall and Mr. Holmes claimed that
according to certain sections of Hm He
vised Statutes it was not necessary Cori'
Druggist to have a license to sell, and
tlc ii.do it would apply in I his case. Col.
Cu ningham, in reply? took the ground
that the town hail bean incorporated dry
by Act ot' the Legislature, and the town
had passed un ordinance prohibiting tho
sale of Spirituous liquors within tue cor
porate limits, anil had the right to tine
any parson violating thin ordinance.
After having all tho law on tho subject
expounded, the case elosed, and after
consultation, tho Council rendered a ver
dict (d' guilty. After hearing tho doei
sion of the Coa neil, the counsel for the
defendant gavo notice of appeal, 'flus
will ho an interesting ease, as all of the
citizens ot' tha placo wish tho matter

Knocking tho Bottom Out.
It seems to he necessary to re
mind the out-and-out prohibition
ist in the Sonnte that with nil the
extraordinary sections which they
have put in the extraordinary Ate
derson-Laurens prohibition hill,
they hnve not yet covered the cat
egory of possible crimes not wholly
disconnected with the liquor habit,
nor have they made the provisions
against an attempted evasion of tho
statute searching enough ami ex
haustive enough to reach every
possible of fender, by intention or

colic in infants, tben fore, so that
then' may lie no excuse for doctor

and so implanting an appetite for

when colic shall have given place
to chronic indigestion or confirmed
thirst. There should be also a legis

plum-pudding, eggnog, jelly, sylla

The presence of un empty bottle
hearing a whiskey label, on the
premises of any citizen should hi?
constituted conclusive evidence of
his having transgressed thu liv;
and the presence of a bi.tl- ,vi( i
out any label, or of a label wit lion;
any, bottle or the absence of both
bottle and label, might very well
be accepted as ineontrevert? le
proof of attempted concealment of
guilt on his part.
Any man who should be found

of guilt bc made to rest up -n him.

Adelaida I'i oater's I>oatli
Adelaide Procter sought, it can with
truth be said, in ti)? practical walks of
lift, to be a bumble disciple of Ono who
"went about continually doing good."
Her health, always uncertain, proved
unequal to tbs strain which th*
unwearied *nergi*s of th? kindly natur?
mad? upon it, and for fifteen month?
ah? did ber beat to cultiv?t* th? grace of
.atiene* ninid th* increasing w?akn??s
which kept her a prisoner on a bed of
pain. The "great passover," M death
baa been beautifully called, drew near
to Adelaide Procter very softly, and
found that gentle heart, to which lifo
bad been "half a pleasure, half a grief,"
still strong "lo hope, to bear, to lov*."
At the approach of midnight on Feb. 8,
1364, with weak and trembling banda, ah*
turned down 'be leaf of n l>ook sh* waa
reading, mid galing into tba watchful
.yeo of her motlier, suddenly asked:
"Do you think I am dying, mammu?"
Hrs. Procter could only say how exceed
ingly ill she thought liar; but Adelaid*
guessed the rout. She said her feet
were cold. She tusked for lier sister and
begged to be lifted up. As lier Bieter en
tered the room she glanced across ut ber
willi n radiant and triumphant smile,
and exclaiming, "It hos come nt last!"
submitted to the conquered conqueror.

Nothing I have ever seen is half BO
wild and fm.hsh its a frightened meer,
and a hunch of beef steere on a stampede
are not to bo laughed tit; tiiey will stop
for nothing, and will run down and over
anything that Oilers resistance in their
path. The only way it is possible to
stop them is to ride ahead of the herd
and gradually turn them to running in
a circle, when they will finally stop, hut
M ill ho off again at (he slightest unusual
noise. If a man's horse were to ?tumble
in a prairie dog's hole and fall it would
mean certain death to both horse and
rider, as tho whole herd would be upon
bim in an instant; hui tho daring and
reckless cowboy takes all such chance?.

The new experiment which the Dutch
are making in prison management will
be Wtltched With interest throughout
Europe. Hitherto Holland hos held the
belief that two years in a separate cell ia
as much as a criminal can stand and
survive. This month tho Dutch have
amended their code so that every prisonei
sentenced to a term of imprlso' ment ol
live years and over will upend the li ist
five years of his term in cellular confine
ment. As in Holland even tho chapel?
are constructed on tho cellulur principio,
and the prisoners wear masks w heno rei
they leave tho narrow precinct? of their
living gravo, tho Dutch experiment
Seems very severe. - Boston Transcript.
