Work for Temperanoe In Rssa5s.
But there is one splendid develop-. I
ment of Russia's vodka monopoly t
which should win more faith for it as I
a factor for good than anything Yt
proved by the system itself. I refer
to the temperance societies formed in t
connection with the monopoly, and i
their work. These temperance socie
ties must do much to neutralize any t
tendency to run the monopoly entirely a
- Since the year 1898 the government
has divided certain sums among the
temperance -societies established in
the governments, where the monopQl8
is in force. Beginning with " little i
over 1,500,000 rubles, the sum has
mounted up to over 8,060,000 in 1901,
and over 4,000,400 this year, out of the
enormous revenue of over 200,000,000
which it receives from the monopoly.
With this government money, added
to more raised in other ways, the so
cieties have established teahouses and
cheap temperance restaurants to the
number of 1,715; reading rooms and
circulating libraries, 1,201; lecture
rooms, 654; Sunday schools, 18; even
ing schools, 10; singing classes, 14T:
tea gardens and theaters, 503; halls
for dancing, 346; Christmas trees, 80,
and various other places of amuse
ment 150. These figures are for sev
eral years ago and the number is now
In St. Petersburg par's of six public
parks have been set aside for the peo
ple and here are built open-air thea
ters and concert halls with tables un
der the trees where the poor man and
his family can sit during the warmer
months at least and sip glasses of
good tea for a few kopecks. Decided
ly the most notable establishment of
the kind in St Petersburg is the Na
rodny Dom or people's house-to
translate it literally. From a certain
point of view I doubt if there is a
more interesting place to visit in the
entire capital. The Russians are very
justly proud of it. The Narodny Dom
itself is a fine building of brick. which
was put up for an exposition and then
bought by the society for this purpose.
Lesson for Young MHe.
To be born with a good body, a
pleasing countenance. quick intelli
gence, a fine 'voice and talent that wins
heritage to be grateful for.
A man who was thus endowed died
I recently in Boston.
Time was when people would crowd
theaters to hear him sing and see him
dance and laugh at his fun. He made
immense sums of money and might
easily have retired with wealth before
he was forty. Instead. be died penni
less at fifty-six in a poor lodging
house, separated from his family,
and all his friends were tired of trying
to save him from himself.
That one word is the epitaph of Bil
ly Emerson. the minstrel, rich and
famous in his way not so very long
And he differed from the countless
wrecks among whom he went to pieces
the larger opportunities for better
things which those gifts brought him.
He had plenty of brains and seemed
to have good sense.
5s But that was not so. No man with
good sense will drink whisky when
experience tells him that he likes it
That is the lesson which Billy Emer
son and all his unhappy kind bequgaeath
to young men.
Laying Hold of the 'Good.
God's method of saving men is to lay
hold of what is good in them, and de
velop it. He giver encouragement and
help in every possible way to even the
weakest and feeblest desires after
righteousness. "A bruised reed,"
bent over and swaying in the wind
"shall he not break, and smoking
flax"-the linen lamp wick almost
ceasing to burn for lack of oil-"sha!l
he not quench." May not parents
learn a lesson from this? Ought they
not to keep a keen eye for any nas
cent, or half-formed. oar struggling virt
ues in their children? Ought they
not to encourage even the faintest
beginnings of goodness? The boy or
girl that is capable of a single true
emotion. or that responds to a single
worthy appeal, is not yet lost.--Christ
Legislate asd Educ:.te.
We are in entire sympathy with
those friends of prohibition who be
lieve that hand in hand with the effort
to obtain the legislative measure
should go the effort to cultivate and
to maintain a deep and universal pub
lic conviction in antagonism to strong
drink and in co-operation with the law
which the legislature will be asked
to pass. We are, indeed, of those who,
to put it frankly, judge it worse than
useless to aim at improvement by
legal enactment, unless there go with
that aim. an aim no less strenuous and
no less persistent, to educate indi
viduals and commpunities up to a point
F of habitual thought and judgment on
the question both on its personal side
and on that which touches not only a
man's own keeping of the law, but his
inslatence that his neighbor keep it,
which will insure that what Tennyson
calls "the common sense of moseet"
r shall keep in awe and m obedience
those who would fain be law-break
LEt u go forward with the aquiet
strength of those who know that they
awe ghtilg on God's side to demand
tad to secure lesislatiee prohibition,
and at the same time let us with equal
earnestness devote our energies to the I
campaign of education.-The Wes
Evils of Even Moderate Drinklag.
You are told truthfully this:
"The drinking nations of the world
are the great and successful nations.
A small handful of drinking English
can subdue and control the temperate
millions of India, Egypt, etc."
Perfectly true. The powerful races
do drink. But the powerful individu
als do not drink.
The conquering armies are armies of
drinking men usually-but their lead
ers are sober, temperate men. If you
want to be one of the ordinary crowd
no worse, and no better than others,
drink spirits "moderately," as whis
ky's friends put it. But remember
that there is no such thing as drink
ing whisky "moderately."
~Immoderate drinking makes you a J
brute. It classes you among those in
the picture. So-called moderate whis
I ky drinking takes the edge off your
ability. It discounts your mental ac- J
tivity. You can't be one of the really
r successful men if you start out to be
a moderate drinker.
I Whisky of No Beueet.
1 Young men should know and daily
remember that whisky and all other
e spirits cheat their bodies and brains.
s Whisky does for the nerves what a

e Your system needs rest. Your
0 brain, to compete with others, ought
to sleep and recuperate. Whisky lies
d to you. It makes you think that it

d appetite it makes you think you have
e found renewed strength, whereas you
i- have only taken a new dose of poison.

life's race by the man of less ability.
r- You need not wonder. He has given

you have given yours a beating.
b~Some Eneouragement In This.
Temperance advocates may be en
1- couraged to learn that the people of
id the United States drink much less
ir beer, wine and spirits than the people
of of other nations. In 1900 the con
j- sumption of alcoholic drinks per 10
of of population in France was 336 gal
`- lons. in Great Britain 332 gallons, in
to Germany 309 gallons and in the Unit
[n ed States only 147 gallons To be sure,
a an average of 14.7 gallons of alcoholic
to drinks in a year may seen discourag
ry ingly large to some.

-Frank Putnam in the February Na
This is a favorite theme of the
Scriptures. The glorified saints are
represented as singing to the praise of
Christ, "Thou art worthy * ' for
thou bhast redeemed us out of every
kindred." Paul writes: "We are
bought with a price." Peter: "Ye
were redeemed by the precious blood
of Jesus Christ;" the Savior himself
t speaks of his life as "a ransom for
I many." And in innumerable paysages
I we are told as one of them reads, that
t "in him is redemption, even the for
giveness of sins."
The Biblical definition (Eph. 1., 7)
of the term leaves no ground for un
certainty. Redemption means for
given-es- Ood's forgiveness of the sins
of the believer. In some way or an
other, by some means, of which the
2 Bible nowhere speaks explicitly, the
e sacrifice of Christ secured for penitent
sinners forgiveness. Without that sat
isfaction of the law which Christ ren
dered, God could not forgive.
A sinful soul can recognize and own
i that truth. Looking upon Christ's per
a feet obedience in love, the believing
le penitent may say "Here is my right
eousness; this is the service I would
0 render; would that I might live a life
so pure and true; would that this
righteousness were my own. Forgive
me. 0 God, what I have been; accept
e' me in the name and for the sake of
Ic Christ. whom I most love, whom thou
dost love; and help me hencetorth to
conform my life to his holiness, and
to walk faithfully in his steps." And.
since Christ is the anointed one of
a God, appointed for this very enc]. God
>1. can be just and yet the Justifier of him
er who believeth in Jesus. And so the
ce Redeemer redeems the sinner from the
m law.-Rev. George Shinman Payson.

taken up his abode in Geneva. There
during the past months he has again
