THE TOWN TALKER.
Fasting is a pious exercise, but it is
more difficult for a mar. to control his
tongue than it is to control his appetite
and temperance is exhibited in the for

We naturally regard the man who is
enslaved to any indulgence as one in
capable of self-control, and, therefore,
bereft of true manliness. Heis subject
to a tyrant who uses and ruins him.
The preachers tell us that personal
strife and ill will are not compatible
with Christian life, but the Town Talk

The worst man in any community, so

he who lives by pondering to the vices
