It ni tlme for tho summer Tacatlon, aml threo o us who wero generally agrced said to ono another, " I.et us go to the school con ventlon annointcd at New Lincoln. We shall have tho occan thrown lu, can probably be lodged together, and who knows what pleasant tnings may oe laia up tnere wait fnir for us." School has closctl. Wlth n thrlll of joy such as only a hard-worklng teacher knows, we turned the key upon worry ana care, had a few lovelv davs of roet at home, and now have taken seats In the early train, and will be in New Lincoln In tinio lor me aiter noon sesslon. and our place f or toa. Teachers at theso conventlons were entertalned by the citlzona. AVe wero all vounir. Ada and I were slg ters. and Anna was iust liko one of our own famlly. We were Just In tbat frolicsome rnood that borders on wlldncss, Dul uoea not venture in whcn there scems to be a funny side to everything. We wonder where we shall no. and whom we shall meet. but the new eystemof impartingln9truction,and thebest methoda of government that we may learn do not altect ua as lorciDiy a9 ine originai iounu ere of the school conventlon might have deemcd nocefsarv and proner. A crowd had gatherod in the walliug room when we arrived. and plices were being as- slgned. A large nutnber evidently had been expected, for thcre was bustling about, and lookiog for ruoro hospltaule manslons, Teachera were pressing to the stand, eacb determined to get his or lier card as soon as possible. "Let us sit down in this corner and wait awMW ham Ada. " I never llke to ru9h. "IIow long wlll you wait?" asked an olher. " O, a patlent wailer is no loser. Why, eomebodv wants us oi course. So we take our aeats, and watch the throng coming and going. I shall never forget iny first glitnpie of the rnan destined to bear so important a part in our visit. He was one of thecommittee. and had just bent forward to address a remark to the secretary, then,taklng up his liat, passed out. I remember that he elanced at our corner as he went by. Swedenborg tells of ine invi9iDiecircio surrounaing eacn lniuvla ual, correspondinc to his eplntual presence, With some lt is amall and faint, with others as wide and clearly marked as the perfuuie around a fragrant llower. Somethine of the kind caine to me throuch the magnetism of this man. He certainly uore me marK oi renneuieni, graco ana cui' ture, but through it all there shone a splrit ual brightness. It was in the light that beamed through the beautiful dark eyes ; In the smile tbat brought to mind Correpgio's angels ; in the expression that told of some ex- fierience, where only the sweetnessof eorrow lad been left. 1 thought of Fra Angelico's saint.", ot atnaniel, the mau wltbout crulle, of the beloved disciple, and I wondered if llils person, like the lamous bcotch nivme, did not make sinners repeut by standlng sl lent before them. Ada whispered: "Did you notice that man V" and in another miuute Anna leaned forward, " Girls, did you notice that man Did you ever see any one like him before V" He came back anu went on with his work Once or twice we asked Ada lt she would not L'o forward. and sho replied : " No. I cau't bear to be urgent ! tlicy will come to ui Dy-and-uy." Occasionallv he na..ied.but withniit a wnrd We wondered if he thought us unworthy of ine ueiier piaces. At last, when nearlv all had been sent out he came: "You liavo been waitlng a long ume ; woum you tnree nice to go together l " Yes," answered Ada. " Would you be willing to take one room witn iwo peos r "Ob, yes," said Anna, eagerly, "that is just what we would like. Ile broucht a card. " Ilere is the nlace. No. 0, at Jtrs. Weston's, Weston street, and this is Jliss Weston," bowing to a young lady, " who will go with you." Wo followed, passing up a long street with Cne residences, where other teachers had been sent. Sometiines Anna and I, who were uenina, wouia wnlsper, "Uon t you wish it were here ?" and finallv of a laree stone bouse, "If it could be this; but ehe doesn't look llke it." Ilowever she stops and reinarks, " We are here at laat." We walked through pleasant grounds iuto a wide porch and liall. Mrs. Weston, a lady iresuer auu uaousomer inan ner uaugnter, meets us cordially. We are led to our room It is cool and pleasant Anna, who baa lin gered a moment, hurries in. " O, girls, I do oeneve mai oeauiuui man iivcs Dere, (or 1 heard some one call him Mr. Howe at the con vention, and Jlrs. Weston just asked if Mr. Howe had come in. Can it be possible tbat iie nas lauen us to nis own nouse l Ada and Anna put ou their light biue dresses, and we go down to supper. There, waiting for us at the door, stands Mr. Itowe. " I am very glad to welcome you here," and there is suchkindness and cordlality in these few words that I think of all the good things I mean to do in the future. Wo are presented to the rest of the household two daughters, a son bome from sea, and two lit tle boys. lt was already iate when we returned from the evening sesslon, wliich was devoted to a lecture upon the beneflt of studying the an clent languages, especially Greek. I think at this time we stood hfgh ln Mr. llowe'a favor. He had shown us marked politeness and attention. liefore retiring, the family grouped about the room, and the conversa tion turned upon self-sacriQce and loving one's neighbor. I had a bad headache, but nevertheiess we sat up far into the night. Anna was unusualiy brigbt and brilliant, and I remembered with wfiat a pleased look Mr. Itowe listened and replied to her. What a good talk we had I His thoughts and words are always helpful. " Christ gives us tho best lesson," he sald. "Ixwk out for vour neichbot's hanpineta and wxl f are, and f iod will take care of yours i you do tielieve iu vicarious saciiflce.

Ada said, " Well, if life were not so f ull of troume ana carel" Ile turned williaglance of sympathy that v tu iijic u uDuuuiciiun. " iim iioa can turn that trouble lnto tilessiui; and neace. I could not determlue what constltuted the reinarkable presenco of this man. Wo couia eee even then tbat he ruled the house, not by words, but by au influence that iio one wanieu w resist. " llut this vouhk ladv's head." ha said. starting up, "wlll not be Improved, and there wlll be no enjoyment for her to-mor- row, so let us say irood nleht. He stood at the door as wo passed out, huu eacu wei, iua iuoi oi Rinuuess and ap. probatlon. We remembered it well, for it was the last. In our room we turned on the gas, draw down the shades, and now what possessed us we never shall kuow, Whether it was the excitemont of our talk, freedom from the restraint we bad felt, or the teturn of our school girlBpirlts, I cannot tell, but we began to laugb and talk ln a way that I be- iicve wo uever uiu ueiore or siuce. .uacti one seemed determined to make Inrsolf rl diculous. Anna. lettinc down ber lonir halr. fell uiou one kuce, struck an attitude and exolafmed, " O girls I" Ada and I, wlth bunta of laughter, followed, We danced up and down the room we commented f roely Uu tho famlly, aud Mr, Itowe's posltlon in me iiousenoiu j we did not mean to be rude, we certainly were not noisv. Imt. th nvr. flow of our splrits was pourej out then and thero. " How do vou feel ?" asked one. As if I'd been amonelhe eodsr answered another. " O. irlrls." eicla mod Ada. " it would take an angel to bo that man's wlfel" and Anna and I go olt into suppressed laughter.

We are confounded. and each. with fear and dread of some impending evil takos her place at tbe taoie. j.neoinersconversepieasanuy. Mr. Itowe says nothlng. The headache, that I vainly thought might be mentioned, Is evidontly forgotten. They plan for the day, cbairs are drawn back ana prayers an nounced. Mrs. Weston savs : " It is our custom to repeat Bome verse of Scripture In the morn- lug ; you wlll pleaso join us." She is first ln order, then her daughters, and Anna next. Uut Anna is always ready " uememuer now thv Creator ln the davs of thv youth." Next came Ada. She declared afterwards that every Idea passed out of her mind, and niemorv was turned upside down, but she stammers, " blessed are the weak, for they shall bo hapnv." Mr. llowe lurns cravely to me. ihe only verse i have been able to recollect is, " Abra ham begat Isaac, and Isaao begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren," but when Ada repeats hors, the rlght way presents itself, and I correct her by recitlng the true text, bhe turns upon me an indig- nant clance. 1 am convulsea with laughter and Mr. Itowe says, " Let us pray." Soon tnese woras, uitereu in siow ana soiemn tones, strlke llke a uagger to our hearts " lCeep us this day from idle words. If we have lndulged them to our own hurt, let us remember that we shall be called to render ud their account. Wo do not whisper our suspiclons to each other, not even when we are alone. At din ner Mr. llowe hardly speaks. In the even- Ing tbe conventlou was to vlslt a nlght blooming cereus. He seems obliged to otfer bts services, ana speaks to Ada. bbe sayi yes, 1 would llke to go. Anna ana 1 de cline. She comes down in her hlue dress, light mantle, and bonnet, and I whisper, " 0, do flnd out what is the matter." Mrs. Weston invited Anna and me to visit Mr. Kowe s study. It was a pleasant room, lillecl with books, mlnerals, lndian rellcs plants. She tells us about him; that he has lived ln tbe iamlly since ber busbaud died, and has been llke a father to her youngest daughter. He gives bis life to others. " See," she said, liftinir a volume, "Here is his favorite Tacitus. Mr. Kowe was engaged to the lady who presented it to nim. ile says sne is ine oniy woman ne ever knew wbo bad read tbe wuole ln tbe orig inai text. " Did she die ?" asked Anna. "No, but the cngagement was broken This is his bedroom, you see it opens out of tne stuay, ile ouerea to give lt up to you, because mat uoor leaus into your room Ihe bed Is pusned acalnst lt now. "uutlnave not notlced a door in our room, I venture to say, wbile Anna is grow- lng pale. "No. wehutig a curtaiu, and set the arnv chalr against it. Why, the door is unfast- ened. j-.nen must nave triea to pass tnrougn this way." as we return to our room, Ada came ln Irowning and unpping. " I've spoileu my clothes, and see my feet soaked." " What dia .Mr. itowe say l we ask, lg- norlng her condltlon " bay l ile never spoke a word, except to ask lt 1 baa rubbers ana wben we came ln sald to Mrs. Weston, ' I'm afraid this young lady nas aanipeuod her leet . " Well, that isn't the worst," I begin " For pity's sake," interrupted Anua, " do let us wnlsper me rest ot our nves. Ada, that curtain bides a door that leads to Mr. Howe's room. He must have heard every word. Ada stands thunderstruck. " Girls, I've feared it all tbe time. What shall we do I " The occan is big," I venture, as the first relief, " and only a stone's tbrow. We can leave a letter slgned by all three saying we aion t mean u. " Well," said Anna, " If he doesn't sup pose girls ever carry on by themselves, and tblnks we are sinners above au others, wby, let him think so." But we all do care. and threo nuleter tter. sous never moved about a room in the days and nights that followed. By degrees his coldness wears away. We can seo that be is narrowly watching us, perbaps trying to find some eicuse, but we uo not have another talk. There are par ties givcn in our honor, and a steamboat ride down me bav. Mr. Itowe does not ac company us, but, nevertheiess, we enjoyed it all, and the dinner at Martha's Vinevard. where Anna remarks that " Martha does not raise many grapes. So the last day comes all too soon. Mr, Howe is almost himself again. We slip away irom ine convenuon, ana uuy a pic ture of Kvanceline, which Ada, ln the name of all three, presents to Mrs. Weston. The iamlly crowd around us with cordial words, Mr. llowe waits to accompany us to the de- not. As we were walklncf down he aava : " Ladies, did you know I had been watch inc you oeiore l assicnea you your piace Ada's eyes flashed with fun. " The best cbildren, they say, are those who are seen, but not heard.' Mr. Itowe looks embarrassed, then his own laugn comes, but he makes no reniv, It seems to us that now may be a time for some explanation, but who shall begin? The train 13 near. ina partlng " uod bless you is lervent and sincere, and we sepa- rate teeung tuat, at least, he has truly and heartlly torgiven us and restored us to our originai piace. Years go by. The war has begun. Anna's cousin Willlam writes home about his chap lain : " I never met such a man before. The soldiers say they want to become better men when he is rounu. Alaster of blmself, he seems to bave tbe power to master every body else. His name la Itowe, and he comes Irom Now Lincoln. ' In the montbsthatfollow.word is broucht of the chaplain's sudden death. Slugularly euougli au old note-book lalls lnto William's hands. He means to burn lt, butloving Mr. Itowe so well that he is glad to keep auv- thing belonging to him, briuga it home. Une day Anna ls looking over his desk and asks, "What is this?" He tells ber and auds s " Wuy, Anna, there ls a picture in it that looks just like you." She opens the book and recognizes tbe smillng face of achlld, one that Kllen Weston showed to ber on board tbe boat and said she meant to keep it for a Ilkeness of herself. What in terests her more is the date of a page, the very week of our vlslt, and she reads : " Very tlred to-ulght. Ou the commlttee for finding piaces at the conventlon held in this city. I brought home three young la dies, and havo been surprlsed and dlsap polnted. They seem fair to look upon, but like tho apples of Sodom, have proved wortb less. I have heard them transformed into three wild aud hoydenlsh girls, without rea son and sense." Later. " 1 put in the picture. It is llke the little one wlth the brigbt halr and Bunny face. I wisli I could llve over again tbat weck, I was too severe. lt ls possible that young ladies laugh and talk in that way just for a frolio. I want to see them again. " Well," we say, as we havo listened to the reading oi these llnes Irom Anna, and talked over our visit once more, "there's one tlilng we II be sure to do ln heaven. " 1 don't know," replle s Ada, now uiistrohs ln her own home. " I expect to find souie thing better to do than puttlng ourselves rlght in other people's opinion ; but, girls, shall we ever iu our livea meet wlth any one again so much like au angel as Mr. Itowe?"

This awful tide of vice and criine and death, forsooth, may llow on through all the week, but should bedanimedupon Suu day. Does the Post and Tribune think tbe poor old man wouia nave sullered any less torture, the bereared famlly have felt any better, and the fleudinhcrime have been any tbe less shockinii aud revoltiue had it been couimitted on Jlonday? Would lt be gratl- lylug to know your son was made a mur derer or waa murdered ou a week day rather than ou a SuudayV Would it be the tralfio which murdered him or the day ou which he waa murdered against which you would luvel your guusV Is tho l'mt and Tribune afraid of the liquor power? Why, then, does it not lay the blame where it richtfully beiougs, aud come out boldly against the ueiuau irams lueu, wnicu is couuuuauy causiug tne desecration ot tbe sauuath and such ghaatly murders as tbis and others that wereaa ot almost every day To attempt to suppress this trallio on Sunday, white it is licensed and ln the bands of unprincipled men aud allowed to run riot all the rest of the week, is as absurd and ridiculous as it is impracticable. Men who are base enougb to sell intoxlcating drinks to their fellow men, ana wbo violate the linuor laws every day in tbe week and set the authorities at deiiance, will do tbe same on Sunday, CArt-wian Uynoture, Tho Irrcprcsslblo Coulllct. The contest ln Oberlin continues. The unclean demon has neither gone out of the man, nor has tbe rnan gone out of tbe town. Tbroughout the colleg9, the serai nary, the churches, the cntint village, the excitement is that of righteous indignatiou stirred to its deepest intensity. It is the absorbing tbeme. Meetings for prayer and conference over the matter are held dally. Tbe drug store which iu this case as in bo many others is only auother name for a grog ehop of the lowest depravity, is being constautiy visited by cltizens in relays, changing every hour. The effrontery, the rudeness, the blasphemy, indecency and vio lenco of the man and his choice following, are such that were the people not plienoin enally self-restralned he and his wnole eu- glnery oi moral ruln would nave long since been summarily disposed of. It is evident that be does not work for himself alono. Ile is undoubtedly the pald tool of some liquor league. He is a man with an ambi tion. 1 1 ia ambltion is to show himself, in faco of tbe total moral sense and determina tion of all good people ln tbe place, to bo the "meanest man in Auierica." Few men realize this ambitlon so complete. His name is Uronson. His christened name we do not know the name his motber gave him. 11 we did, out oi respect to her we would not repeat it. As Hev. -Mr. llrand, ln a sermou preached in the First Congrega tloual church, Oberlin, says; "There is uut one issue between tne temperance peo ple of this place and the liquor trallio to-day. lt is this: Shall we have ln thts town the worst possible form of a wblskey shop under the guise of a drug store, aud kept by an utterly unprincipled man, or sball we not ?" Should the thousand or so puplls in Ober liu learn, by these object lessous, the mo tivea and tbe spirit with which the great social reforms of our time are to be under- takeu and catned on, it will be as Inipor tant a lesson as they can possibly learn. Advance The ltnvn(;c8 of Ituui. For nearly two weeka iu tbe dally prayer- mtetluga tbere was presented as a subject for prayer tho case ot a young lawyer, the only son of a pioua motber, who had from his birin prayeu joruiscouversiou, a young mau ol aullity and Btauuing, uut tbe viclliu of the intoxicatine cup. Atsa, tbe demon of drlnk, llke deatb, of which lt is tbe lype and the precurpor, loves a Biuuing mark. One day the leader of the meetlng, iu reit eratliigtberequest,remarked that tne young lawyer was not tbe only marked and dia tingulslied vlctim of intemperance. Wlthin a few days, he sald, a man wbo bad been a minlster of the gospel, and who bad preached deliverauce from sin to captlves, had beeu seen drunk iu our atreets aud had to be helned to his lodciugs. J hia was no uu heard of thing, for many such casea are ou record; but coming upas lt did lu such a counection, it made a deep Iwpressiou. Can resi ectable aud i;ood men piead lor tbe iriv llege of moderate driukiug when it leads to such results ' Can Chrlstian peupte be si leut and iuactlve, when this pootileuce that walketh in darknesa aud this destructioii that wasteth at noouday is doiug lta (rarful work on every stde 1 I'roleasloual men. business men, fair wouieu, little childreu, are all alike fallltig a pri-y to the ravages ot rum.
