nrea Oatblering or Game.
F. J. Tracy, of Staceyville, Ma!ne,
had an Interesting and rather exciting
experience a short time ago while in
the woods on an exploring trip. He
made his camp by the side of a small
pond about flfteen acres in extent,
which abounds in trout, and is a gath
ering place for big game. He was
standing near this pond when he saw
at one time fourteen deer, three moose,
and four black ducks, all within rifle

"Coastlng" on thle Bible.
A friend of the L!stener has seen a
funny sight down in Maine. At a place
there, which needn't be named, there
lives a small boy named Jonathan
Longfellow, who is a third or fourth
cousin of the poet; and he is a great
boy, too. One day this friend of the
Listener was driving past Jonathan's
house, and saw the boy engaged at a
little distance in sliding downhill, on a
slippery crust on something that was
not a sled. What could it be? Evident
ly the scrutiny of the passerby was ob
served by the boy, for he stopped his
coasting and called out amiably: "I'm
sliding downhill on the Bible!" And it
was the fact, too. He had got the
smooth, leathef-bound family Bible,
containing the generations of all the
Longfellows, and was coasting on it
with magnificent success.-Boston

But the saddest wall is for lips that died
With the virgin dew upon them.
Man's Inhumanity to Man.
It is my conviction that much of the
hopelessness of inebriety depends up
on man's inhumanity to man. It is
necessary to isolate people not only on
account of the promptings of their
own cravings, but also on account of
the promptings of their friends. One
of the earliest cases that called my at
tention to the evils of drink occurred
in Hardwick Hospital while I was res
ident there; a man was discharged one
morning convalescent after a severe at
tack of delirium tremens; his friends
met him at the gate, and took him
from public house to public house, and
so celebrated his recovery until the
evening, that they were then able tc
return him suffering from a relapse

my efforts have been frustrated by so
called friends and relatives whose con
stant cry was, "A little can do you no
harm. The little has too often been
taken, and the flood gates have been
opened.-Dr. Macdowell Cosgrave.
A Startling Discovery.
A startling discovery has been an
nounced, one over which the liquor
fraternity is considerably agitated. It
is stated on scientific authority, and
chronicled by the liquor press itself,
that there is a bacterium which lives
and grows in alcoholic drinks. The
fact is naturally characterized in these
same papers as "somewhat remarka
ble," they being evidently .of the same
opinion as "temperance fanatics" with
regard to the destruqtlvq na }re of al
cohol. The discoverer regards this
micro-organism as a "new species."
Might we not suggest that it is the
nineteenth century incarnation of the
adversary? The public is promised
later on a fuller account of the devel
opment of this remarkable microbe
and the "chemical changes it pro
duces"-in the drinks. It would be
more to the purpose to know its effects
upon the human organism. At any
rate alcoholic beverages can no longer
be recommended as safer than water
because of their freedom from the
"deadly bacteria."-Union Signal.
Among the "Upper Set."
Her Majesty's Inspector of Retreats
under the Inebriates' Act makes some
rather startling statements in his an
nual report just issued as a parlia
mentary paper. Here is one: "There
is an easy optimism which is fond of
repeating the statement that excessive
drinking has ceased among the 'upper'
classes, and will in time die out like
wise among the 'lower orders.'" There
is painful reason to believe the state
menit to be fallacious. Less wine is
drunk at the dinner table, but it may
be otherwise at the club, billiard room.
the smoke room and the bar. There
is ground for believing that immoder
ate drinking, Though frightfully com
mon among the industrial classes, is
yet more prevalent in the classes is
nally contrasted with them." Another
is that "among women, also, of ,ll
classes, it appears certain that drunk
enness is on the increase." These, .,o
it remembered, are the conclusions of
no so-called "fanatic," but of an expe
ienced the matter-of-tact government
"A Peeullar Seae.'"
The Halifax (N. S.) Recorder relates
the following: "A peculiar scene was
witnessed in a northend barroom on
Saturday evening. A man, after lea;
ang work, and while on his way home
wlth his wages, called in at a saloon
whlch he frequently patronized an l
salled for a pint of beer. While he was
irinklng it a woman walked in, and,
:ouching him on the arm, said: 'Well,
are you going to give me a glass,
also?' The man looked as it he had
lost his senses. The woman, who was
hise wife, asked him why he did not
tanswer. 8tlll no reply. The woman
remarked that they had a hard enough
ime to live without him throwing
away his money on beer. The husband
lid not make any reply, and, with his
aead down, left the saloon with his

"The s~ioQ finds occasion to reit
erate the judLment often expressed by
the General Assembly and this synod,
that the renting of property for the
sale of intoxicants, and the signing of
applications to sell intoxicating bev
erages, is inconsistent with Christan
character and harmful to the cause of
religion, and calls the attention of all
its presbyteries and sessions, its min
isters, teachers and church members,
.to this matter."
Grover Cleveland says:
"I do not care if all the synods and
Presbyteries in the country were to
offer an adverse decision, it would be
no good reason why I should alter my
opinion. I am very sorry that Dr.
Shlelds has been bothered over this
matter, as he is an old and very dear
friend of mine. Otherwise the action
of the Presbytery does not affect me
in the least. When I signed the peti
tion for the liquor license for the
Princeton Inn I in no sense committed
a wrong, and if the same proposition
came up for my consideration again, I
would do the same thing."
Just so. We do not for a moment
doubt Mr. Cleveland's word, and hun
dreds of others will do the same thing.
So long as this government is a part
ner in the business, and to sell liquc,.
is a legitimate enterprise, church men
may resolve and resolve, but all to no
Public Opinion and Temperance,
Our work in many places must seem
slow and discouraging. The great
mass of public opinion that rises up
like an impregnable fortress before us
appears often impossible to overcome;
and the victory for which we wait is
yet distant; but I believe more abso
lutely than ever in the final triumph of
all good over all evil; and while I
think that time may appear to "drag
its lengthening chain" to our finite
minds, by and by when we understand
the workings of those plans which
comes from the Infinite, we shall real
ize how this slow evolution has been
the training school for that eventual
good which is working out in this
world, and which I believe is preparing
us for the wider work that awaits us
beyond.-Lady Henry Somerset.
Modern Temperance Reform.
In reply to a query as to the status
of the "modern temperance reform"
our editor-in-chief sent out the follow
ing: 1. I take it that what we now
mean by the temperance reform is per
sonal prohibition, legal prohibition,
political prohibition and prohibition
by woman's ballot. 2. Its present
status is like that of John Brown's
soul, it still "goes marching on." 3.
The duty of its friends is to illustrate
and enforce its fourfold lines of work
by means of voice and pen and prayer.
Religion, science, common sense and
the steadily growing sentiment of hu
man brotherhood are all with us. The
cause can no more fail than gravita
tion can petrify.-Union Signal.
