I. Principles of a Righteous Llf
(Ts. 101 :J-S).
'lids Is a psnlm of D.nld tbe king,
ami therefore shows '.ic t-miiluct of a
ruler, it is divided into two sections
--the lirst, verses 1-1, refers to person
al conduct, and the second, H-.S, to the
government of others. This part of the
lesson can oiih refer to the destruc
tion of the saloon lu the sense that all
evil is to be uprooted and destroyed.
I. Personal Conduct (vv. I-I)! (1)
Kindness and Judgment (v. I); (U)
wise behavior (y. 12) ; (,t) ail malice
put away (v. .".) ; all wickedness put
as'de (v. !).
12. fiovornnicnt of others (vv. o-S).
Only as one. is right In his own heart
and lii'e is lie fit to rule others. As n
righteous man lie will be against (1)
the slanderer (v. 5). He will not tol
erate such in Ills presence. (12) The
worker or declt (v. 7). The deceitful
man and the liar are to he removed
from his sight. (.') All workers of in
iquity (v. S). It Is the duty of rulers
to see that all workers of wickedness
of nil kinds be cut off. Tho manufac
turer and sel'er of liquor should be re
garded as notorious workers of Iniqui
ty. Those who blight manhood for
sordid gain nre grossly wicked.
II. The Awful Ruin Wrought by
Strong Drink (Prov. li.'i :'.!!):.").
I. Woes of Those Who Indulge in
Wine (vv. 2, HO). (1) The awful pain
which causes one to cry out, "Oh!"
Many, Indeed, are the pains wdilch men
mtffer hecutip of strong drink. Rodlly
Ills innumerable can he traced to Its
evil Inlluenee. (12) The bitter remorse,
which causes one to cry out, "Alas!"
Many are the expressions of hitter re
gret which daily come from the lips
of the dninkard. (8) Contention
strife and quarreling. Much of the
fighting among men Is directly caused
by their passions being Inllumed by
strong drink. The drunken man ts al
ways ready to take offense, as well us
to give it. (!) Rnbbllngs and com
plainings. The wlnebibbor complains
of everything HI luck, loss or friends,
of fate und of (Sod. lie sees every
thing wrong hut himself, (fi) Wounds
without cause. These are wounds
from lights in which a sober man
would not have engaged, ami from ac
cidents which ure purely the result or
intoxk alien. ((!) Redness or eyes.
This lias reference to the blood-shot
eye of the tippler which dims his
vjslon. All these woes come upon
those who lurry long at wine.
II. The AUltude Enjoined (v. 251).
Look not at It. Do not put yourself
into the way of temptation. The only
Fnl'e atlitode toward strong drink Is
total abstinence, and the only way to
total abstinence is not to even look
III. The Drunkard's Bitter End (vv.
1. Acute Miseries, "it bitetli like a
ncrpcut und stlngelh like an adder."
Strong drink, like the poison of a ser
pent, ponneutos the whole system and
ends In the most fatal consequences.
2. Perversion of the Moral Sense.
This excitement cause thu eyes to be
hold strange things. This denotes the
fantastic lie ages produced on the brain
of the drunkard. Kvon when delirium
tremens does not result, there are aw
ful fancies which are beyond the pos
sibility of realization. Then does his
heart utter perierse tilings. His moral
sense being perverted, his utterances
partake of the ij.'iine. He tells lies; ids
words cannot le relied upon.
.'. He Is Insensible to Danger (v.
I'M). lie Is foolhardy, even as one who
would lie in the top of a ship's must,
wliero there Is the greatest danger of
'4. He la Insensible to J'aln (v. :5."i).
The drunkard Is utterly Ignorant of
what happens to him while under the
influence of strong drink. Man
bruises and wounds the drunkard has
which he cannot account for.
0. Ills Abject Rondiige (v. .'!.ri). After
nil his sufferings, sorrow and disappointment.-,
bo goes on as a bond
slave lu the ways of sin.
tt. Hell at La.-it. No drunkard shall in
herit the klug.lum of heaven (I Cm'.
Whole Sum of Human Life,
Of the whole sum of human life no
small part la that which consists of
a man's relations to his country, and
his feelings concerning it. (Jladstone.

man's amusements and recreations, I
will tell you what are his prospects.
