Death and the Drunkard.
His form was fair, his cheek was houlth ;
His word a bond, his purse was wealth ;
With wheat Lis Held was covered o'er ;
l'lentv sat nulling at lib door.
His wife, the fount of ceaseless Joy,
Now laughed his daughters ; played his boy.
His lihiary. though large, was read
Till half its contents decked his heaJ.
At noon tw;u health, wealth, pure delight ;
Tvas health, wealth, peace an l bliss at night.
I wished not to disturb his bliss ;
Tis gone ! but all the fault Is his.
The social glass I saw hlin seize.
The m ire with festive wit to please.
And to iucreas) his love of cheer.
Ah. little thought he I was near t
Gradual indulgence on him stole ;
Frequent became the midnight bowl.
I In that bowl the headache placed,
Vhlh, with the juice, bis lips embraced.
Shame next I mingled with the draught ;
Indignantly he diank and laughed.
In the bowl's bottom bankruptcy
I placed ; he drank with tears and glee.
Remorse did I Into It pour :
Ho only sought the bowl the more.
I mingled ucxt Joint torturing pain ;
Little the more did he refralu.
The dropsy In the cup I mixed.
Still to his mouth the cup was tlxcd.
My euiUsaries thus in vain
I sent the mad wivlch to restrain.
On the bowl's bottom then myself
I threw the most abhorrent elf
Of all tht mortals bate or dread ;
And thus in horrid whispers said :
'Successless ministers I've sent
Thy hastening ruin to prevent ;
Their lessous naught then hem am I ;
Think not my threatening to defy.
Swallow this-this thy last wiUbeJ
For with it thou must swallow me 1"
Haggard his eyes, upright his hair ;
Remorse his lips, his cheeks despair ;
With shaking hands the bowl he clasped.
My meatless limbs his carcass grasped,
And bore it to the church yard, where
Thousands, ere I would call, repair.
Death speaks ah ! reader, dost tht u heai?
Hast.tho1.: no lurking cause to fear?
Has yet o'er thee the sparkling bowl
Constant, commanding, sly control?
Betimes reflect ; betimes beware,
Though ruddy, healthful now and fair.
Before slow reason lose the way.
Reform ; postpone another day.
You soon may mix with common clay.
Dbcs Prohibition Prohibit t
Uev. C. P. Taylor, writing from Eu
reka, Kan., on thi3 question, gives
some telling facts aliiruiiiig the ques
tion. We make an extract or two
from bis letter. He says: I have been
in Kansas several weeks and have
traveled several hundred miles, stop
ping in a number of towns, large and
small, for several days at a time, and
have made it my business to see for
myself and to inquire of tha most re
liable citizen" in regard to the matter.
I have seen but one open "saloon in
Kansas, and the almost universal
statement is: the saloons and bars are
all closed, and we have had less diffi
culty iu effecting this desirable result
than we apprehended. Drunkenness
has almoft disappeared from public
view. I have seen but one intoxi
cated man since I entered the state,
and he was wailing at the tyranny of a
state that took away the liberty ol its
The contrast between Kansas and
the neighboring state of Missouri is
very great. There free whisky is
found everywhere, and saloons, bars
and the liquor traflic are triumphant.
I spent one day in Kansas City, and
one oi tne most noticeable lea-
ture3 of this city of surprising growth
is the frequency of saloons upon all
the streets, the constant clinking of
:lasses to be heard continually be
hind the screens, and the number of
red-faced, partly intoxicated men to be
seen on the streets. On the train
which took me out of Kansas City in
one car was one man lying dead drunk
behind the door, with his feet stick
ing out across the aisle to be stumbled
over, and three other well dressed men
so drunk and indecently boisterous
tnac tne conductor nau to remove
them and put them under guard. Pro
hibition would be a great blessing to
Kansas City and Missouri, and there
is a growing feeling among her best
citizens that a prohibitory amendment
is the only remedy for the pivvailing
vice of intemperance, so deeply rooted
iu the habits the people.
So a mob has burned the city mar
shal's house, and the deputy marshal
has been dangerously, if not fatally,
beaten Ln a town of Indiana because
they were enforcing the law against
selling rum on Suutlav and after eleven
o'clock at night ou other das. We
will not say we are glad of it, but this
we will say that as it is done we are
glad to publish it, and tliat it ought to
turn out to the furtherance of the
gospel of temperance and suppiesnion
of the liquor traffic. Rum and the. traffic
in it embody rebellion against all law,
human and divine. You can not
smite a hornet's nest and not
expect the hornets to respond. 'Tis
their nature to." But you do not
give up your bedroom to hornets be
cause they have made a nest in your
absence or while you slept. The mob
was but a feeble expression of the
terrible work of rum. Rum's worst
work is done when it disperses the
mob among the familiesof the village,
town or city, when it slowly changes
youth into such demons as make the
mob. Christian Advocate

Already there is a row in the demo
cratic camp. Morton claims that he
must be elected to the senate by the
democrats and anti-monops, while the
friends.oCPopuleton sayjie mast stand
back for a North Platte statesman
and wait for the shoes of his friend
VanWyck. Keep your linen intact,
gentlemen. It is possible, afier al
that the popular song of the season is
going to be "Thou art so near and yet
so far," in the presence of a small but
intelligent working majority of
straight republicai.a in the joint con
vention next winter. A democratic
congress does not settle the title to
seats in the state legislature, else you
would have a pretty sure thing of it
doubtless. Then the anti-monops ex
pect to buy out the entire democratic
delegation in case the republicans fall
short of a majority. Crcunse and Ham
Connor also aspire, and there is our
ively friend from Pawnee, who may
bear some close watching. "You are
at the end of your trouble," said a
clergyma l to a newly wedded pair as
he pocke.ed his little fee. "I didn't
say which end," he explained after
wards to the husband when lie came
to demand a retraction from the man
of God, a few days later, with his head
bandaged up and the marks of a lively
rolling pin discernible on his noble
brow. The matrimonial experience of
the democratic and anti-monop states

anecdote later. State Journal.

her wish that her body should not be

that hers should share the same lot

ham, respecting these wishes, deter
mined to carry them out in the face of
all difficulties. These are numerous,
owing to the fact that no public body
exists in this kingdom w hich carries
out cremation, and those who desire
to execute the wishes of their rela

aid in foreign countries at an anount
of trouble and expense which muke it
impossible for most. With the view
