which the poison of vice is dissemi

when they have had ample time to

THE LATE DR. MACKENZIE.
Dr. R. Shelton Mackenzie, who for
half a century has been known in this
country and abroad as one of our
most indusirious and successtul liter
ary men , died at his home in Phila
delphia on the 31st of November, at
the age of seventy-two. He was bom
in Ireland, but came to New York in
1S53, and made this country nis home.
Since then he has been an indefatiga
ble worker as an author and contribu
tor to the magazines and daily news
papers of New York and Philadelphia.
He was a most agreeable and amiable
geatleman, and a charming compan
ion. His familiarity with literary
history and incidents in the lives of
literary men was remarkable. He
could give place and date with the
greatest promptitude, and supplement
it with anecdote that was always
apropos. To newspaper men ho was
widely known, and was greatly es
teemed and the news of his death was
read with deep regret.

Washington, Dec. 3. Interest in
the Guiteau trial is unabated. After
the examination of two unimportant
witnesses, Emery A. Storrs, of Chica
go was placed on the stand. He had
seen the prisoner several times at the
Republican committee rooms during
the campaign. His impression was
that Guiteau bad an illy-balanced
mind. Upn cross-examination Storrs
said he never saw anything in Guiteau
to indicate he could not distinguish
between right and wrong, or that he
did not know the difference between
guilt or innocence, or that he would
not be responsible for crime.
The evidence created quite a stir in
the court room and seemed to stagger
those about the defense table. The
inter of the prisoner was particularly
affected, niid in tones distinctly caught
by reporters said, "He has perjured
himself, that is all there is about it."
bcoville made a sensation by sum
moning David Davis, speaker Randall,
Senator Bayard and President Arthur;
none of them responded although they
have been subpoenaed. .Scoville then
read a number of newspaper clips
found on the prisoner at the time of
his capture. Guiteau interrupted, say-
there wre a hundred of them whan
arrested, which betook from stalwart,
liberal and half-breed papers, when
ever he saw anything confirming his
While Scoville was reading a clip
ping a stir became noticeable about
the door leading to the witness room,

was seen going toward the witness
stand and the reading ceased. The
witness was sworn and Scoville pro
ceeded to put questions to him in pol
itical philosophy. Tha Judge was
non-committal on everything and con
tinually demurred to the line of pro
ceedings, .ludkte Davis was excused
after a few moments and for a min
ute occupied a seat 0,1 the bench with
Judge Cox, where he studied the pris
oner's countenance for some time and
then left the court room.
David Davis, in the afternoon tes
timony laid he was not connected witn
either political party of the country.
He had no personal knowledge of a
breach in the Republican party, aris
ing from difficulties between Garfield
and Conkling. He entered neither
caucus, but knew there were factions
in the Republican party. Being asked
what probability there was of these
difficulties disrupting and destroying
the Republican partv, he said, that's a
far-reaching question. The Republi
can party has not been destroyed and
yet there had been breaches in it. The
only way in which it can be destroyed,
if not by disruption, is by the Demo
cratic party. ' It is a mere matter of
opinion whether the difficulties be
tween its faction or branches endanger
its life. The republican party is an
extraordinary organization. I don't
believe it will dio until the Demo
cratic party is dead.

Beer Driuking Women.
It is a painful truth that many wo
men of whom we would expect better
things are in the habit of drinking
beer and encoui aging their families in
so doing. If there ever was a time
when women needed to take u stand
for the right, it is now when this
question is before the people.
There is no class who suffer from
the results of intemperance so keenly
as do woven, and there few women
who have not some near one entangled
in the meshes of a cruel but clinging
appetite. The public expects and has
a right to expect that women take
the lead in setting up a high standard
of morals before the people. Wo
must admit that great harm comes
from dram-drinking and that it is a
very dangerous practice. It behooves
every thoughtful and well-meaning
women to give this matter serious
thouglit. Wc cannot afford to con
tinue a practice that is in any way cor
rupting or compromising with wrong.
It is very evident that many people
drink because they imagine it gives
them an air of respectability, and to
strip this foul practice of its respecta
bility is what every respectable wo
man should endeavor to do. ,
Effects of Beer Drinking.
BY DR. N. S. DAVIS, CHICAGO'S GREAT
EST AUTHORITY AMONG PHYSICIANS.
When beer is taen in small quan
tities, repeated daily, the individual
usually slowly increases in weight,
not from increase nutrition, but
from retarding the waste and retain
ing the waste longer in the tissues.
Hence, to ii troduce into the living
system any agent that will retard
atomic change is equivalent to retard
ing the phenomena of life, and, if by
retarding the atomic changes, cells or
atoms are retained in the tissues
longer than the natural duration, of
their activity, such retention may in
crease the bulk and weight.'but in the
same ratio it embarrasses the tissues
with the presence of material which
is constantly becoming inert and tend
ing to degeneialion.
Consequently, the individual who
thus increases his bulk and weight by
the taking of just enough of the weak
er alcoholic drinks daily to retard the
processes of secretion and waste, in
the same proportion diminishes his ac
tivity, his ability to resist the effects
of morbid agents of every kind. This
is abundantly illustrated by the thous
ands of beer and wine drinkers, who.
from twenty to twentv-five years of
age were muscular, active, capable of
ny reasonalie endurance, with a
weight of one hundred .and fifty
pounds, but who, after moder.ately re
tarding atomic changes and retaining
old atoms by the daily use of wine or
beer, and have lost their muscular ac
tivity and endurance to such an ex
tent that an active exercise of twenty
minutes would make them puff like a
"heavy horse." It is this sedative ef
fect of alcohol on the organic or mus
cular changes in tissues, retaining
waste and effete matter, that ought to
have been promptly thrown out.
which impairs the vital properties, and
predisposes or prepares i lie system to
yield to morbid intluencrs of any kind
to which it may be exposed. And es
pecially does this sedative effect of al
cohol on the organic changes which
maintained by a moderate and con
tinued use of the 'article, favor those
degenerate changes which result in
tuberculas, caseous, and fatly deposits,
in the lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, and
arteries of the brain, and in mater
ially shortening the duration of life.
Beer cannot be used without injuri
ous effects proportioned to thn quan
tity used and the frequency of its rep
etition. I's use as a remedy in the
treatment of disease can be wholly
dispensed with, without any injury to
A Kentucky paper puts it this way:
Whisky is the cause of nearly all
crime, disorder and misery.
Strike it out and strikes will end.
Tramp it out and tramps will be
Murder it and murders will cease.
Stab it to the heart and hearts will
no longer be stabbed. Put an ever
lasting end to the mean thing, and
meanness will be the exception In
stead of the rule.

Gentlemen of the lloiibe of Repre

this distinguished honor. I will as
sume the power of the high otilcv,

trust of my wwn ability to meet them
acceptably io you and to the country.
I believe you as a body and as iudi-
viduals will give me hearty support.
1 promise W devote myself faithfully
and assiduously to the work betore '
nie. I invoke you and the country's
charitable juugmeut on all my official
acts. 1 will try to be just to all re
gardless of party or section. Where a
pnncip'e is involved 1 will be found
Kepubiican. but in all other respects 1
note to bo able to act free from party
bias, it is a singular fact that at this
most prosperous time of our nation's
history no party in either branch of
congress has an absolute majority, and
it is therefore peculiarly fortunate
that at no other time since and for
many years prior to the accession of
Abraham Lincoln to the executive
chair, has there been so few unsettled '
vital questions of a national character
in relation to which party lines have
been closely drawn. National pros
periiy is in advauce of any oiher period
in the hstory of our government. The
violence of party spirit has subsided,
and in a great measure many of the j
reasons for its existence are gone, t
While the universal tendency of the ;
people is to sustain and continue to !
build up uuparallelled prosperity, it ;
should be our highest aim to perrna- j
nedtlv promote, and not I) cripple it. i
This congress should be, and 1 pro-
foundly hope it will be, marked pe- !
culiarly as a business congress. It !
may be trutt that additional laws are
yet necessary to give to every citizen
complete protection in the exercise of i
all political rights. With evenly bal
anced party power, with few grounds
for party strife, and no impending
presidential election to distract us
from our purely legislative duties, I
venture to suggest the present as an
auspicious timo to enact laws to guard
against the recurrence of dangers to
our institutions and to insure tian
quility at perilous times in the fu
ture. Again thanking you for the
honor, I am ready to take the pre
scribed oath, and forthwith proceed to
fulfill to the best of my ability the du
ties of the office with which you have
clothed me. Great applause.
