I'robably my faco showod my disgust, for
shortly bis hand went in his pocket, and
he very adroitly conveyed something to
bis mouth. It was not lung before tbo
smoll of whiskey gave placo to some
thing more familiar to my olactories.
Now, Mr. Editor, my object in writing
this, my first article fur the press, is to see
lr young men cannot bn awakened up to a

drinking saloons and their attondant evils
make a very poor commencement for
young men, if they evor expect to make
anything respectablo of themselves.
In Thk Bulletin oi Wednesday
morning we publlsbod what was given to
us as the particulars of an attempt, mado
a few days ago, to inveigle a little girl into
a certain house of ill-fame in this city.
Theitory was givon to us for the truth;
and havlnlng heard it from one party, we
went to ice the "little girl" in question,
and from her own lips heard the story in
almost the same languago as we got it
from the party who flnt told us of it. Rut
yesterday morning we wore called upon
by a sister of tho woman to whoso house
tho little girl was lent, and requested to
give place to tho following communica
tion, which tells Hi own story:
Mr, Editor: In an arttcal in The
Bulletin of yesterday morning, allusion
Is made to tho attompts of "Miss W a
to assist in accomplishing the ruin of tbo
llttlo girl who came to this city on Mon
day, and as tho articlo says, fell into the
hands of a certain lady, who took her

wiso provided lor.
I live near tho cornor of Eighth stroot
and Commercial avenue, and it is sup
posed I am the woman to whoso houso tho
little girl was to como. Tho child did
come to my houso, but that iho was lont
thero by anyone I do not bolievo, nor
did I know that sho was coming to toe mo,
I havo known the child for years, her par
ent! and mine having once boon close
neighbors. She came to see roy little
alitor, and when she found that my sister
was not at my home sho went away. This
is the truth of tho story and all thero is in
With tho light of my own ait life be

anxious to Justify the ready confidence thus
demonstrated, have exerted themselves to
the utmost to develop aud improve the
