\i\ 11 MMM I::MPE$ANCE DEPARTMENT. [This column is edited by g Weon are not responsible for his sayings.ED. UNION.] The meeting of the Temperance Reform Club, Sept. 17jth, was well at tended, and the interest manifested was encouraging to. all friends of Tem pera nee. Short addresses were doliver ed by several ladies and gentlemen. For the Temperance Department. Still the ranks are filling up we learn that about twenty of the young men of Princeton, who have hereto fore visited the saloons, have formed a temperance society among themselves, and have signed articles to the effect that if any member enters a saloon for any purpose whatever he shall be liable to a fine of $5, or 30 days im prisonment in the county jail. This so ciety have framed a constitution, el ected officers and gone to work in* Jood earnest. Hurrah for the young men of Princeton! They see the need of earnest work and energetic meas ures in this matter they see'-and real ize the importance of something being done to check this greatl evil, and if. they have not chosen the best course, certainly they have made a good nove in the right direction, and they have our best wishes and hearty sup port. S. ADVICE TO YOUNG MEN.'Remember that you are the architect of your own temple of fame if you build one great and honorable, to you the merit and-happiness belongs if you rear an unsightly vice-haunted structure, to you tne misery and shame belong. We must not attribute our succession life to blind fortune, nor our failure^to bad luck, for our success largely depends itpcra our correct habits and good ac tions, and our misfortunes to ill-direct ed arid selfish ones. Good character :nd-good habits will assaults of all the co-called bad luck that was ever dreamed of. ^hile the aged pass off the stage of action, the youth must take their places. Are you preparing your mind to discharge the duties thus devolving upon youfaith/ully to the community, and with honor to your selves? Are you endowing your hearts with good principles, or on the con trary spending your time reading that which tends to vitiate the principles of morality? Are you a frequenter of saloons? -^ff-you are one of those youths who in lawless riot of demented folly, wasting time and strength in pursuit of anything but enduring good, and casting your lot upon the altar of pleasure, and living for that alone, I beg you to pause as you have no time to waste. Evils are staring you in the face, your duty to yourselves and your friends requires you to meet them with a bold and manly defiance and stay their ruinous progress. It is yours to lend your influence to abolish the vices of the day. Yours to destroy intemperance, the vile demon which so sadly mars the morals of the com munity. In conclusion, let me entreat you by all you hold sacred and dear to shun evil associates avoid as you would a deadly poison those vile naunts of iniquity. .Setup the stan ard of right and press on without weariness or failures to a final success I'I n- the Temperance Department. temperance is what we so much need in our land to-day. We need to teach and instil it in the minds of the youth of our land. I am glad that there are so many of the youth of Princeton signing the temperance pledge, and I hope that they may prove true to the oath that they have taken, to abstain from all in toxicating liquors am glad to see it carried on all through otfr beautiful state at the present time.' And I hope the time may come when the ladies of tliis state shall have the privilege of voting against the sale of spiritous liquors that is destroying so many of our fair sons and daughters and ruining them both soul and body and destroy ing the peace of their families. I pray God that this temperance reform movement, that is doing so much good throughout the land, until King Alco hol shall be banished from our.fair state, and that we may see those dens of vice and sin shut up entirely.
