DRINKING IN DENMARK.
mere Liquee Consumed for the Popul, E8
ties Thea In Any Other Country.
The state of Denmark has the deplor
able reputation of being one of the of
countries in the world where the most st
liquor is consumed. Centuries before o
the birth of Christ history tells us how of
the old Danish warriors spent the win- lja
ter months :n drunken revels, old strong as
imead being the liquor used. an
The Scandinavian nations as a whole eiI
are inclined to use strong drink. lpr
haps on account of a cold and change- tie
aidble climate. But there is the differ- -i
ence that when the Norwegian or to
Swede drinks he drinks heavily for a
while, then he stops; but slow and vi'
steady drinking is found to a greater ex- ih
tent in Denmark than perhaps in any gl
other country. Norway was the first of u
the Scandinavian states to embrace the en
temperance ideas brought to it from the
United States, and the earnestness ~
which characterizes this nation soon
showed forth in the temnpcr:nce work. gr
Albount fourteen years ago the temper- soi
ante army in Norway was strong enough it
to sendl trotq, to Denrnmark, where t-hey
were greeted either with the utmost in- lip
difference or with violent resistance.
Meanwhile Sweden had born strongly
stirred by the temperance movement in fol
the ,brotherland. King Gu..tav Ill h1
had in the beginning of the Eighteenth hi
centnury, out of greed for money. made fil
a nation of drunkards out of the Swed- sl'
ish people: he had made the distilling lit
of whisky a government monopoly and !al
enc-ouraged in every way the use of ki,
liquor. The condition of the nation be
came through this so bad that the ear
nest element was ready to help the Nor- TI
wegians as soon as they came.
A little while after the Norwegians i1i
had commenced work in Denmark the W(
Swedes came to their assistance. For
many years no women took part in the
work. It was carried on mainly among he
the peasantry and the laboring classes do
of the cities, those being the most af- fot
flicted by the scourge of liquor. A
farmer and congress member. Claus Jo
hansen, has for years been the leader of
temperance work. The educated classe. oi
remained in lofty indifference to th- tic
whole question. th
The temperance people tried to have 4 b,
law passed to close the saloons on Sun- MI
days, but they did pot succeed. They we:
are closed by law every evening between 1
10 and 11. The chief of police of Co
penhagen attempted to enforce anm
amendment that any person seen drunk
on the streets was liable to a fine, but it
met with strong objection; it was claim- cu
ed to promote injutice, as the rich men
could hire a cab and get home unde- kO
tooted, while the poor man would have ly
to pay the fine. The law is now that li
any drunken peroshall be conveyed to
blhs home by the saloon keeper in whose l
saloon he got drunk: if not, the saloon
keeper-not the drunken man-will he
bned. A asloon keeper pays fifty dol IN
lans for a license. There is very small t
duty on imported wines, and commo, ye
liqs are s cheap that three piats of -
rye whisky can be bought for ten aetes
As a whole the 'tempsramce work In
Denmark has been carried mn uad
oh unfavorable circumstances that,
though hard work has been done, the
results are only small. The yearly con
amptios a t liquor amounts to 70,000,
eows, or as much as the oeportation
of the renowane Danish horses amonats
to-and that s one of the most impor
taut resrces of the state.

A MODERN ROMANCE.
oew the I.Iht of the Moon, a Leover and
a Detective Got Mixed.
'he sun ha:u sunk to rest on his couch
of western hills curtained with draperies
of purple clouds. One by one the gentle
stars twinkled into life and the silver rim
ol the young moon. shone in the deep blue
of the elasttrn sky. Murmuring wavelets
lapped the pebhhly beach and a breeresweet
as the si:.ls iof love stole over the calm land
and whiela ol dreams to every listenieg
In the garden of the great mansion on
the hill the tinkling fountain sang a g'e
tie mehxly and flowers freighted the warmn
air with dreamy fragrance. It was a night
to make day an unwelcome intruder.
Softly the lattice gate swung open and a
vision of loveliness stole in. Under the
shadow of the spreading locust trees she
glided past the grape arbor and on to the
rustic bench beneath the great elm at the
end of the inchlture. Her breath came in
great, deep sighs; she halted now and then
with finger on lip and listened for a men
ment, then passed on again.
She turned her great eyes toward the
grove at t'he left. She was looking for
somei one whose coming would make her
heart hent, quicker. Hark! A stealthy
stip! She hea:rd it and started. A gla.n
light ;raite into her eyes; the bloul rushed
to her chee-eks. She half rose. then sank
barlk andi \w;ilted.
Ile wars e(a(inlc now anrd in a few mo
ninents shl'- would hid gonihy to her dear
home( , leave her loving pnrents and trust
her hft, to him who had captured her trust
ing heart. Now that the time hail come
she almost regretted her rash proemise.
But she did love him so!
lHe was very close to her now, and she
sat pith dowenlast eyes taiting for his
With a shriek she sprang to her feet.
The voice was not his.
"Please, laisa," he repeated with a warn
ing gesture. "Mr. Montgomery Searles I
won't be here this evenln. Ile's in Jail for
obtaining money under false pretenses.
Fine evening, miss. Goodlby."
And the detective strode away and left
her to her thoughts and the perfume of the
flowers and the tinkling lullaby of the
Poets, carried away by the enthusiasm
of composition, are sometimes guilty of
misstatements. Shortly after the publica
tion of one of Tennyson's famous poems
the laureate received a suggestion from
the distinguished arithmetician, Babbage.
Mr. Babbage's somewhat startling letter
I)zA Stm-I ind in a recently published
poem from your pen the following unwarrant
Every moment dies a man,
Every moment one is born.
I need hardly point out to you that this cal
culation, if correct, would tend to keep the
sum total of the world's population in a state
of perpetual equipole, whereis it is a well
known fact that the said eim total Lseoeetaa
t ly on the Imarease. I woeld therefore take the
liberty of suggesting that ab the next edition
of your excellent poem the erroneous calcula
tion to which I refer should be corrected an
Every moment dies amen,
And one and a sixteesth is born.
I may add that the exact agurds are 1.1,
but somethina mast of course be cenoeded to
the laws of metre. I have th hoener to be. sir.
