Intoxicating drinks are not necessi ty. \^e.'c^p liye .ija health, and work at the mbst exhausting employment without them. They are expensive in contrast with food, and they lack. the nutritious, qualities of bread and meat ^^'tjhgpe. fli inore nourishment in a single cracker than in a glass of beer. Fermented and distilled prinks weaken the mind. They are 'enemies in the mouth that steals away the brains," and harden the heart and conscience. They stain the character, create a false and dangerous appetite, kindle the baser passions, and hurry the victim, soiled with sin, to -moral, and spiritual bankruptcy and ruin. If they begin life with a fair capital of vitality of body vigor of mind and sensitiveness of soul, they are led astray by that evil spirit, that devil of drink, and they become defaulters ind'fot-feit the trust that society re posed in them. It goes without say ing., that intoxicating liquors people the receptacles of vice and crime, and filLthe institutiops of charity with the halt, the sick, the idiotic, and the in sane. Their consumption arguments the misery of the moderate and excess ive drinker, increases the suffering of the unoffending victims, and adds heavily to the grievous burdens so patiently borne by the tax payers. In the face of these facts, the friends of humanity appeal to all who use, and all who defend the use of intoxicating drinks, to exert their best endeavors to prevent the granting of licenses, to joiii with the heroic men and women in their labors of love, to discounten ance the sale and use of intoxicating poisons, which wipes out the likeness of God from the human face divine, and writes "btfast" upon it. kU«- 'Mi fKt I dreamed a. lot And—well—I lived to find. i.

Strawberries All Year. Strawberry-time is prolong^ by European tourists to form a' consider ible little part of the year, by those rho begin in Italy towards .the. .eijd of Iprll and follow the wild strawberry &to South German woods, pausing in Venice on the way. There the ,half xrlld half-cultivated, berry,,arrives in tuch quantities early in May that it solors the frequent fruit shpps and paints the town red. This half wild less makes the charm of the Italian itrawberry. For of the quiet wild ones rou never—like Doctor Johnson jplth' peaches—get quite enough and the wholly cultivated has not the distinc tive flavor, which is as delicate and. in tense as the scent of a wild rose lost the gardens. And in California not mly the tourists but all who buy at markets may enjoy the best berry ivery month in the year. to Constitution.
