Husbands havo you thought of
the pain you cause that wife that

else in ifei by tho intemperate life
yon are leading I can tell you
some of the horrors that surrounds
vthVlife of a drunkards wife bet
tiful youth
Who mo happy and freo and fair
Oli girls sho then ploadod oh hood
mo woll
And listen while I my story toll
Too lato I had hoard of my wasted lifo
Tho torriblo fato of ft drunkards wifo
I married n drunkard doar girls sho ox-
claimed
And wns giddy andoung and gay
But liko tho mist In the morning my
joys took their flight
And thus swiftly they passed away
I havo learned that tho crown of all sor
row bolow
Which will crush and blight tho hoart
Tho poor wifo of a drunkard is dostinod
to know
And to writho and Buffer tho smart
Though young behold my hair is whlto
Mado so by the scones of ono sad night
Oh tho sight oh tho sight of that terri
bio night
Sho exclaimed in an anguished tono
A3 tho Bceno of tho past sccmod to rush
oor hor sight
As if reason they would dothrono
With hands that wero pale sho hid her
fnco
As if to conceal hor doep disgrace
Tho delirium tremens Oh girls havo
you seen
May God sparo you tho fearful sight
Of a husband insane by tho demon drink
As ho stnggors towards home at night
Oh tako them away I hare heard him
scream
It scorns liko a sad and awful dieam
On that night I was sitting bosido my
sick boy
And my two llttlo girls at rest
Whon a filing of fonr that thoy both
word unsao
Of a sudden my soul potosscd
I rushed to thoir room and on tho bed
I found them mangled cold and doad
By tho hand of thoir father thoy both
wore slain
And with knifo with thoir blood still red
In the frenzy of drink and madnoss of
shamo
Ho still raved with his reason fled
O mo ho thon glared his wretched wifo
And thon with a thrust ho took his lifo
Then I foil to tho floor nnd was borno
from tho room
A wreck sinco that night Ivo been
And tho boy that was loft had passion
for drink
Tho sad mark of his fathors sin
It chained him though young a
loss slave
And early ho filled a drunkards gravo
I beg of you girls as you valuo your
lives
Prom tho drinker to turn aside
And givo hood to no plea whatovor it bo
Of tho drinker to bo his brido
To savo from such sorrow as wrecked
my lifo
Oh nevor bocomo a drinkors wifo
There thoy are judgo for your
self

A barrol of hungor of poison of pain
A barrol of hopes all blasted and vain
A barrol of povorty ruin and blight
