"No," wid I, "whyl" 1 knew why; I
was wire of it k'fore the fellow answerr-d
mo, He ho discharged me." I knew it.
1 was sure of it; his infernal Ireaili told
me so the moment he put his head within
i n v room. All my admonition, nil his
solemn promises, the necessity for a char
nrter in his denpernte situation, his poor
wife, all, nil went for nothing the fel
low was doomed. I had no henrt to talk
with him then, tint whnt little I did say
went to his soul in language flint left its
imprint there, as though humcd with a
red hot hrand. I told him he was a drunk
nrri, and there was no hope for him. I
had forewarned him of the consequence
of drink befofe I had obtained for him the
i-iluation; he had rarneotly and faithfully
promised tno that if 1 would find a place
for him, he would never touch the cursed
liquor again; 1 had pleaded with him for
his wife s sake, for his own sake, for the
nke of his friends, for the salvation of
Iris very sottl, to reform ; he had solemnly
promised, and deliberately broken that
promise. I told him to go, for I could not

I immediately called upon my friend

swelled so infernally that I could not stand
it ; my customers could not stand it ; he was
soggy every afternoon and unfit for busi

you not tell me he drank f"
This was plain and explicit; it was de
cidedly to the point; I felt rebuked for the
deception I had practised upon Jones, and
had nothing to say.
CHATTER IV. AND LAST.
" Smith is done for, and nil hope is over;
he is in the rapids of Niagara, and no
power on earth can snve him. His poor
wife is hopeless, and the dark night of de
spair has settled upon her soul. Oh rum',
how much misery hast thou to answer for!
Smith has no power over his passion for
the liquid which has blighted his prospects
for this life, and will soon send him into
another, a miserable, debased, polluted
being. I saw him in Broadway not a
week since, in the same dirty black suit,
the thermometer at 90, in the shade, and
his oat buttoned up to his chin, his pale,
anxious countenance giving evidence of
the terrible struggle going on within his
hreast, and yet nothing can save him. -The
picture of the poor, lone being whose
fate is linked with his, and to whom she
still clings, is ever before the eyes of the
tender-hearted and now anything but en
vious Mrs. Jenkins, and we daily talk of
the terrible spectacle of the doomed man
and his unfortunate wile. J here is no
hope for him now ; no stronger appeal can
be made than has been made ; he is passed
being reached, and I shall not be surprised
if 1 recognize in the morning papers, ere
long, tinder the head of "picked up in the
water, the bloated, rum-soaked and be
sotted remains of my once fashionable and
rich and envied neighbor Smith!

calf that was killed I"
" A female," replied the divine.

" Because, (looking the interof-ater in
the face) 1 see that the male is slid alive."
To the revihngs of a native American
a German replied thus:
" The gentleman taunts me with not

Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of the
erritory, designating tht County Commis
sioners as the proper persona to enter Town
Sites, Is not recognlted by the Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the .United States Judges, can
be regarded aa "Jifdges of the County Court."
Aa soon as that doubt la removed, notice wl.l
be given. In tha mean time no entering of
towns not Incorporated can be made.
A copv ot tlia act ot tne last Lgislatme
will be placed In the hands of ths Commis
sioner, and, under the circumstances, the en
