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 shot. Fine clothes do not make the woman, but ther sometimes break the husband. "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 Transcript. That Way All Around.

NOTES OF INTEREST TO THB ANTI-LIQUOR LEAGUERS. "Man's Inhumanity to Man Makes Countless Thousands Mourn"-A itart ling Discovery-A Bacterium Which Lives and Grows In Aleohollo Drink. Remorse. AD is the thought of sunniest days Of love and rap ture perished. And shine through memory's tearful haze The eyes once + us fondllest cherish ed. Reproachful is the ghost of toys b That charmed while life was wasted. But saddest is the thought of joys That never yet were tasted. Sad is the vague and tender dream Of dead love's lingering kisses, To crushed hearts haloed by the gleam Of unreturning blisses; Deeep mourns the soul in anguished pride For the pitiless death that won them 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 a relapse which ended fatally in a few days. This Is an extreme example of a common occurrence. I have often con vinced people that their only chance of safety. lay in total abstinence, and 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 ofmclaL--Wetnsmnster Gazette. "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 wfe. A 8hurp Cohtrst. The New Jersey synod of the Pros oyterlan church among others has Ipken its mind in regard to the sign .aE of petitions for license to sell in o'zioating liquorm, and Grover Cleve and has also spoken his. They coon uast ln . lihta4 4areess. The '~ blae hSiI "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 purpose. 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. 8ald by Temperance Leaders. What comes from the heart goes to 'the heart.-Coleridge.'

Having neverhad any consumption ain our family, as we come of good old Irish and Scotch stock, we did not think it was that. Our doctor called the disease by an odd name, which, as I afterward learned, meant lack of blood.
