Look Pot upon the wretched slave of wine
As one unworthy of a lender thought ;
His heart, tho' darkened now, was pure as
Before the demon his destruction wrought.
Life's ills came on, and slowly, d.iy by day,
His life became a burden to bis soul ;
lie drank lo drive bis hitter thoughts away,
And fell, alas I a victim to the bowl.
Oft has he paused ns friends have plead
But O how sadly was the promise kept ;
His hark too frail for passions angry storm.
He sank as pitying nngels bent and wept.
Ye who love deeds of mercy to bestow,
Behold him sunk in degradation deep ;
His history enough of earthly woe
To call forth tears from eyes unused to
Perhaps he still may have a mother dear
A loving sister or still nearer friend;
His blackened vice will start the scalding tear.
His wretchedness their bosoms lend.
Willi quickened step lie (rends the downward
As one whose heart has never known n fear ;
Urged on by thirst, ns by a whirlwind's force,
lie hastes to consummate his mad career.
On earth he is Ibe object of your scorn ;
Loaded with guilt he sinks into the tomb ;
There he must sleep till resurrection morn,
Atid only 'wake to hear his final doom.
Behold yon gloomy church-yard's Briow-cnpped
Ye Gods! what brilliant hopes lie buried
The body wrapt in slumber most profoui.il,
The soul forever writhing in despair!
O grave ! thou great devourer of my race,
What mysteries canst thou alone disclose !
O! that all who approach to thy embrace
Might find within thy realm a ''sweet
O dark abyss! O gulph c f black despair!
Vain man! whydid'st thou take this direful
Behold thy gloom ! no ray of hope is there ;
Mercy shall never enter thy abode I
Melhiuks I see the temple of Jehovah's ire,
With firey billows cul ling round its dome,
I see inscribed upon its door of fire
"Here is the Drunkard's long eternal home !'
There let him stay! and curse the sulph-rous
He knew his duty, hut he did it not ;"'
Remorse will feed you through eternity
Keveiige will never let him be forgot.
Ye who've stood beside the drunkard's bed,
And marked his anguish at departing breath;
Rescue the son before he too shall tread
The path that leads to ruin, shame and
If thou wonld'st lend poor friends a helping
Or gain the favor of our common Lord.
Then help to drive the tyrant from our land,
And you shall reap a rich and full reward.

A lady with a crinoline was walking
down the street her feathers llutteicd in

walked the earth ns if sho felt of it nbo
was no putt, nnd proudly did bhc Mep
nlong, for pride was in In r heart, t'lm
did not see a curly dog which walked cloe
bv her Mde, all s-nve the luisLv tad of
which her crinoline did bide. His tjil
the dog with pleasure shook it fluttered
in the wind, and from the lady s crinoline
stuck out a fool behind. A crowd the tail
did soon espy, as it waved to nnd fro, nnd
like a rudder reenu d to point which way
the mn'd should go. The curly dog right
pleased was ho such quarters be had got,
and walked Lei-ide the lady in a kind of
doggih trot. Kadi Men the lady now did
take, toned to increa her train, while
those who followed in her wake roared
out with might nnd main. Some held
their sides they laughed so hnrd, and
many fairly cried, nnd many oven still
confess that day they d 'like to died
Hut still the lady sailed along, in crinoline
and pride, unmindful of the crowd Khind
or dog closo by her side. l!ut .soon nn
other dog espied iho tail which liultered
free it yo provoked his doggish ire lit
Could not let it be but with n deep fero
cious growl, for buttle straight he went,
ninl 'nenth the lady's crinoline both dogs
were quickly pent. They fought 'tis said
one hour or more the lady nothing knew
but with her bond erect sniled on, nnd
did her way pursue. Some say sho nev er
would have Known nt nil nhout tho fight,
hud not one dog mistook nnd nave her
