How a Father was Staved
"My early practice," said a doctor, "was
successful, and I so on attained an enviable
position. I married a lovely girl ; two chil
dren were horn to us and my domestic hap
piness was complete. But i was invited of
ten tosocia 1 parties where wine was lredy
circulated, and soon 1 became a slave to its
power. Before I was aware of it I was a
drunkard. My noble wife never forsook me,
never taunted me with a bitter word, never
ceased to pray for my reformation. We were
wretchedly poor, so that my family became
pinched for daily bread. One beautiful Sab
bath my wife went to church and left me on
a louuge sleeping oft' my previous night's do
bauch. I was aroused by hearing something
fall heavily on the floor. I opined my eyes
and saw my lit'le boy of six years tumbling
on the floor. Ilia older brother said to him,
'Now get up and fall aga,n. That's the way
papa does. Let's play we'ie drunk.' I watch
ed the child as he persona'ed by beastly
movements in a way that would have done
eredit to any actor. 1 arose and left the house
groaning in agony and remorse. I walked
oft', miles into the country—thinking over my
abominable sin, and the example I was set
ting before my children. 1 solemnly resolv
ed that with God's help I would quit the cup,
and i did. No lecture 1 ever heard from
Gough moved my soul like the spectacle of
my own sweet boys, 'playing drunk as papa
does. ' "
Mrs. Graut In Public I.tfe.
"Were you with Gen. Grant much during
" I was part of the time with him, but not
as the newspapers have represented. I had a
paper sent me the other day with an article
marked, in which I was represented as being
much better than I am, and as doing many
things which were impossible. For instance,
it waS stated that after a battle in which the
general was engaged I invariably hurried to
the front to he ot what service L might. Now
that was not true at ail. The General would
ifst have put up with it at all. He would hayc
been very angry if I had appeared at such a
time, ami 1 knew it. I was also stated that I
had busied myself in hunting out poor people i
upon whom to besiow- alms. That was also
incorreet. Enough of such people always
found me ; L did not have to seek them out.
Then I was reported as busying mysell in
seeking positions for wealthy young ladies in
the treasury department, and for other appli
cants in other places. Now my husband
would not allow that. I did nothing of the
kind to influence him. 1 don't think—in
more than two appointmen's. oo. you sec,
the newspapers were wrong."
" I remember to have seen it stated that
long before the war you often predicted that !
your husband would be president," interrupt
ed some one.

made, but they wery utterly without fouuda- ;
lion. I did not dream of my husband becom- ;
ing President any length of time before lie
was actually called to tlie position. In fact,
1 was not ambitious to have him fill the posi
tion until they began to abuse him. I was
perfectly satisfied to have him remain Gener
al of the Army. About two weeks before the
convention which noinjnated him, t spoke to j
him about the reports that were being circu
latec that lie would receive the nomination,
and asked him if be thought lie would be
nominated, and he said be thought lie would
be, and that if be were chosen he would be
elected. I asked him if he thought he could
SI! the office, and be replied that he thought
lie could do as well as most others."— Mrs.
