Every saloon introduced into a new community Is helping to bequeath to the next generation 500,000 drunkards. Home body's boy will be among that number. What if it Is your boy? The following lines put this thought more forcibly than I can. Will you read them f Wnose bo;, whose boy Is It, jours or mine, That will msron In tbe ranks ot tbe rum- cursed line; Ibat with bloated face and polluted breatb, And staggering gait will march on to death, On, on to deatb and a drunkard's hellT Whose boy wll It be? Ah, who can tell? Yet mothers, dear mothers, I know full well That some ot our boys will that army swell. My heart grows weary, burdened and sad , As I look on the lace ot my own dear lad And know It may be, In tbe years to eome. He will tall a victim to rum, oursed rum. My soul goes out In a wild, mod cry. Rather than this I would see him dlel Die while tbe signet which heaven set On this pure young brow Is sparkling yet. Though my lite went out with bis, I cry, Rather than this I would see him dlel Look around you and sees lot tbe tempter stands In gilded palact with jeweled hands, Beokonlng our loved ones to enter there, Where all seems wondrously bright and fair, Where sweet flowers bloom and fountains flow, Hiding the serpents that coll below. Say, shall these places of shame and sin Be left to take the unwary In? Forbid, Just Heaven, that tbls shall be In the boasted home of the brave and free. Mothers, sisters, arise and stand, A wall of fire In our dear, loved land, s Pleged In tbe name ot our King above, To save our homes and our household loves From tbe tempter's power. Heart linked to heart, let us onward go; The Bible our shield let us charge tbe toe. No sleep to our eyelids till fur and near O'er our broad, fair laud rings tbe victor's cheer. And our homes are saved and our loved ones all Are freed for aye from demon's thrall. God ot battles our leader be Until our land shall Indeed be tree; Free from pollution's hideous night. Free from the rum power's withering blight. Then peace, like a river, will sweetly flow, And we ll taste of Heaven In our lives below, And unto theei oh King ot Heaven, Shall the glory, honor and praise be given. Murder Cases in Wellington.

Some tribute it seems, should be paid to the memory of little Warner Myers, whoso sad death from scarlet fever pre vented even those who knew him best to express their love and sympathy by a pub lic funeral. Although but four years of age, strewing flowers on children's graves In the cemetery was a passibn with him, which seems almost a premonition of his esrly death. A beautiful little casket To us ont time was given; It held as sweet a jewel As e'er was lent from Heaven. We cherished well tbe treasure, We watched It day and night, We thought to always keep It From storms and earthly blight. And we prayed to him who gave it Tbe lite that was so brief That he would wutch and save It From passion and from grlet But an angel came one morning, Just at the break of day, . And bore our jewel back to Heaven The oasket only holds the clay. As In life tbou didst love to spread Flowers on graves of youthful dead, So, fragrant flowers and dews shall be The only emblem meet for thee. t -V. B. PERSONAL MENTION.
