Pinkham's Veg etable Compound to restore their health. A Plea for Prohibition. The nian who has formed, the habit of. using intoxicants is in a desperato siiuation.. His brain is eiseased; his will power is weakened, so far as any power in himself is concerned; his ap petite is uncontrollable he cannot be reasoned with or persuaded to deny him self..' Drawn into the dens of vice, one who has resolved to quit drink is led to jize the glass again, and with the first taste of the intoxicant every good reso lution is overpowered, every vestige of will destroyed. One taste of the mad dening draught and all thought of its results lias vanished. The heart-broken wife Is forgotten; the debauched father no longer cares that his children are hungry and naked. ; By legalizing the traffic the law gives sanction to this downfall of the soul ai.d refuses to stop the trade that' tills the world with evil. Must this always con tinue? Will souls always have to strug gle for victory with the door of tempta tion wide open before them? Must the curse of intemperance forever rest like a blight upon the civilized world? Must it continue to sweep, every year, ..like a devouring fire over thousands of happy homes? When a ship is wrecked in sight of shore, people do not idly look on; they risk their lives in the effort to rescue men and women from a watery grave. How much greater the demand for effort in rescuing them from the drunkard's fat-! '." It is not the drunkard and his family alone who are imperiled by the work of the liquor sellers, nor is the burden of taxation the chief evil which their traffic brings on the community. We are nil woven together in the web of humanity. The evil that befalls any part of the great human brotherhood brings peril to all. Many a man who, through love of gain or ease, would have nothing to do with restricting the liquor traffic, has found, too late, that the traffic had to do with him. He has seen his own children besotted and ruined. Lawless ness runs riot. ' Property is in danger. Life is unsafe. Accidents by sea and by land multiply.' Diseases that breed in the haunts of filth and wretchedness make their way to lordly and luxurious homes. Vices fostered by. the children of debauchery and crime infect the sons and daughters of refined and cultured households. - There is no man whose interests the liquor traffic does not im peril. There is no man who for his own safeguard should not set himself to de stroy it. Above all other places having to do with secular interests only, legis L.ydia is. rmKiiam s tcseiawo lative halls and courts of justice should be free from the curse of intemperance. Governors, Senators, Representatives, Judges, men who enact and administer a nation's laws, men who hold in their hands the lives, the fair fame, the pos sessions of their fellows, should be men of strict temperance. Only thus can their minds be clear to discriminate be tween right and wrong. Only thus can they possess firmness of principle and wisdom to administer justice and to show mercy. The licensing of the liquor traffic is advocated by many as tending to re strict the drink evil, but the licensing of the traffic places it under the protec tion of the law. The Government sanc tions its existence and thus fosters the evil which it professes to restrict. Under the protection of license laws breweries, distilleries and wineries are planted all over the land and the liquor seller plies his work beside our very doors. Often ho is forbidden to sell intoxicants to one who is drunk or who is known to be a confirmed drunkard, but the work of making drunkards of the youth goes steadily forward. Upon the creating of the liquor appetite in the youth the very life of the traffic depends. . The youth are led on step by step uutil the liquor habit is established and the thirst is created that at any cost demands satis faction. Less harmful would it be to gsant liquor to the confirmed drunk ard, whose ruin, in most cases, is al ready determined, than to permit the flower of our youth to be lured to de struction through this terrible habit? By the licensing of the liquor traffic temptotion is kept constantly before those who are trying to reform. Institutions have been established where the victims of intemperance may be helped to overcome their appetite. This is a noblo work, but so long as the salo of liquor is sanctioned by law the intemperate receive Httlo benefit from inebriate asylums. They cannot re main there always. They must again take their place in society. The appe tite for intoxicating drink, though sub dued, is not wholly destroyed, and when temptation assails them, as it does on every hand, they too often fall an easy prey. , The man who has a vicious beast, and who, knowing its disposition, al lows it liberty, is by the laws of the land held accountable for the evil the beast may do. In the laws given to Israel the Lord directed that when a beast known to be vicious caused the death of a human being the life of the owner should pay the price of careless- A woman who rarely says r does the philanthropy would appeal to her niot if the could indulge in it. Buying party frocks for girls who need them" was the half earnest, half whimsical answer that set everyone smiling, though memories of girlish disappointments and heart burnings, hard to War, made us realize that there was something to be said for Mrs. A's plan after all. It is hard for a popular girl to meet the demands made upon her party fnxks at this time of year, but the fanciful styles that prevail help out considerably. A' few yards of veiling will transform a worn frock and give it quite a "strut ty look," and January odds and ends that can be had at little prices will supply the veiling, or material for a whole new rock for less than half its cost a month ago. GOOD l'LAXSING. Haphazard ordering and buying are responsible for half the difficulty ex perienced in making ends uieet in the dress allowance. Take the' most becoming color for the predominating tint in the outfit, unless it is too delicate or too garish for the purpose. In that caso select a neutral tintwjth which it will com bine successfully. , By this method all one's " small belonging, ' shoes, gloves, hats, etc., harmonize not only witbtho wearer but with one another and produce an effect that would strain the purse strings if matching accessories were procured for every costume, ":. , MAtciilSo sets. -. Another scheme, very fashionable just now, is to have sets that may be worn with almost any frock-or suit. Hat, scarf, muff and bag 6f any be coming and desirable sort of satin, velvet, chiffon, lace or fur, oryf com binations Vf these whicbJ'are so modish this winter. The fur ones of course head the list. "Handsome thy habit as thy purse can buy" is especially good advice with regard to furs, for these last over from season to season as do few other belongings, and give an inimitable touch of style and becomingness to any costume. The girl with Christmas money not yet spent can not make any better in vestment, for notwithstanding the enormous holiday sales first class, furriers like C. C. Shayne still show an enticing assortment of handsome garments and sets that anyone would be pleased to wear. Of the less ex pensive furs Australian Oppossum closely resembling Chinchilla in color aud texture seems particularly at tractive especially as a trimming for coats of broadtail and other furs. PARTY PRESS. At one of the recent dances for debutantes a very pretty frock was of a white silk crepe material banded with pale rose chiffon velvet, topped with a band of "tailless ermine" ostensibly though "I hae me douts but that Bunny furnished the pelt." velvet bands on the waist circled the figure just above the raised waist, the sleeve bands continuing the line of the bodice. In the back a large butterfly of velvet with a centre of fur finished the band. The skirt was fulled at the waist, and the velvet band topped by a narrow fur one, held i i the fullness just below the knee. A lace yoke outlined the wide high decolletage, and straps of fur held this it) place at the shoulders. . " AT T1IK KITZ. ' Dining at the Kitz the other night a young married belle wore apretty creation of brown chiffon over yellow Satin. The underskirt showed almost to the knee in front but was quite covered in the back.. The hat of thin gold lace in aChantilly pattern was banded with fur and a spray of yellow satin button roses with green leaves, matching those that trimmed the waist of the gown. A beautiful mink coat lined with gold colored brocade was thrown back over the chair and made a lovely setting for the dainty wearer Lucy Carter. ness or malignity. On the same prin ciple the Government that licenses the liquor seller should be held responsible for the results of his traffic. And if it is a crime worthy of death to give lib erty to a vicious . beast, how much greater is the crime of sanctioning the work of the liquor seller! Licenses are granted oh the plea that they bring a revenue to the public treasury, but what is the revenue compared with the enormous expense incurred for the criminals, the insane, the pauper, that are the fault of the liquor traffic! A man under the influence 'of liquor com mits a crime; he is brought into court, and those who legalized the traffic pre forced to deal with the result of their own wrork. They authorized the sale of a draught that would make a sane man mad, and now it is necessary for them to send the man to prison or to the gal lows, while often his wife and children are left destitute, to Jbccome the charge of the 'community in which they live. - Considering only the financial aspect of the question, what fully it is to toler ate such a business! What revenue can compensate for the loss of human rea son, for the defacing and deforming of God in man, for the rum of children, reduced to. pauperism and degradation, to perpetuate in their children the evil tendencies of their drunken fathers? The honor of God, the stability of the nation, the well-being of the commun ity, of the home and of the individual, demand that every possible effort be mado in arousing the people to the evil of intemperance.

As yet the contest has hardly begun in some States, but we do thank God from the depth of our hearts for the victory in old Tennessee and, what he has done for our Stale He is willing and ready to do for others. Then, sister States, let an army be formed to stop the sale of the drugged liquors that are making men mad. Let the danger from the liquor traffic be made plain and a public sentiment cre ated that shall demand its prohibition. Let the drink-maddened men be given an opportunity to escape, from their thraldom. Let the voice of the nation demand of its law makers that a stop be put to this infamous traffic!
