Sho did not reply Immediately, but tapped tho carpet with her foot.

At what a fearful cost I havo gratified a cursed dc slro lo shine in tho first circles. What nn awful change tho poisoned bowl has ir.aileln him. O, Ilcrta I llerta!" Sho wept and wrung her hands frantically, but tears availed hor naught. There ho lay, hor once proud and happy hiubaml, a victim of tho demon Intemperance.

Ha had never ccouicd so dear to hor before, when sho saw him lu the bloom of manhood, drifting toward ruin, and sho caressed and kissed him passionately.

I will not reproach you, only you must renp ns you have sown." Ho arose nnd hurried from the house, Sho tried to call him back, but sobs of anguish checked hor ulturnnco, nud sho fainted nway. A quarter of an hour la ter n sorvnnt camo in to light the gn. nud found her lying ou tho lloor, cold nud white. Restoratives woro applied nud sho soon rovived. Throo mouths passed nway.

Ilo opened the door and entered, and nt down before tho d) lug embers of thu Uro and tried to warm his numb hands. Ho was nut drunk, ns ho had been nnablo to procure liquor, and Stella moved her stool oloso up to him and laid hor head upon his kuco and wept. Ho looked nt her stir, rowfnlly a few moments, and then said ; "Stulla, lam not drunk i why do you weep?" Ilo smoothed her Imlr kindly thu first caress hu had bestowed up on her lor thrco months. "Oh I Ilcrta, my poor dear husband I it senilis so good lo seu you sober, 1 can not keep from crying. Hut how long will this last 1 O, It you would onlv stop drinking, wo could yet bo happy."
