THE QUIET HOUR
Here is a delightful plan by which

l little girls to knit. The wool

I wonder hall because it contains many

worsted. As tbc gift at the center

|| usually the best and might be a little
I gold ring, or any bit of child’s jew

method stimulates perseverance and
lessens the drudgery of learning to

One night after a meeting where I

grabbed me and made me promise
‘‘not to do anything rash.” So in
order to find out who they were for
arrest on the morrow, I slipped down
the street and met them under a
gas light. They were too drunk to
know me. One was a worthless
painter, and the other wasatough car
jfentei from Slater's Slabbing Mill.
' By morning my ire had been slept
away and morning was done. A
little while after that I started the
Iron Rose Bible cl^ss, and somehow
these fellows got into it. Both were
led 'nto the kingdom. The painter
became one of the best teachers at
the Rock Run mission, and is today

A Frank Confession.
”1 am a farmer, and I raise rye.
One day I took a bushel of my rye
down to the distiller and sold it to
him for fifty cents. The distiller got.
iut of that bushel of rye three and
a half gallons of proof whiskey—al
though I hear now that he can gel
four gallons out of a bushel—which
he sold lo the saloonkeeper.
i then start'd in with the saloon
k* eper to drink up my bushel of rye
at ten cents a drink, eight drinks to
th" pint, or eighty cents for a pint,
or $0.40 for a gallon. The three and
a half gallons of proof whiskey which
my fifty-ccnt rye made had cost me
“I had to sell enough rye to the
distiller to get money to pay the sa
loon keeper. When 1 hauled my
forty-four and four-fifths bushels of
—-rye to the distiller to pay for what
lie uad gotten out of one bushel, 1
said to myself, ‘what a fool I was!’
“Is there another farmer as big
a fool as I was?”
Next to alcohol, the narcotic most
frequently resorted to, to afford re
lief from <hese symptoms, is tobacco.
A little over four centuries ago to
bacco was unknown in civilized lands.
Today the tobacco devotees is found
in every w'alk of life. In the United
State: there are as many smokers
as there are voters, and it is estimat
ed that over five hundred tons of
tobacco leaves go up in smoke each
day of ths year, representing a val
ue of over $800,000. Every minute of
the sixteen hours during which men
are awake somewhere, about 23,000
cigars and 10,000 cigarettes are con
sumed. Our annual tobacco bill
amounts to $040,000,000. Should any
three of our large cities be wiped
out by fir • each year it would be con
sidered an immense loss, and yet
yt*iie amount of tobacco annually eon
f ■ imed equals in value nearly the
combined taxable property of De
troit., Cincinnati, and Buffalo. The
United States is one of the greatest
educational countries in the world,
but for every dollar spent on educa
tion over two dollars is paid out for
tobacco. A habit so universal must
have a marked influence upon nation
On the evening of the election day
that voted Beatrice “wet” recently, a
little girl, as whs her custom, brought
milk to the home of.this business
man She was greatly excited, and
very anxious to know how the elec- j
tion came out. The next evening she!
came as usual, but sad-faced and
quid. Little dreaming the real cause,
the lady of tie house asked the girl’s
reason lor her demeanor, to which
lie lalter repl'ed: “Oh, 1 feel soj
bad «.au«< Beatrice voted for the|
saloon ngajn. Last year, when we
l ad no saloons, papa always brought
his money home when he was paid.
Now we won’t have so much to eat
and such clothes to wear, but will
have to live like we used to when
they had saloons before. Oh, 1 just
can't help it, I must cry!” Of course
she must. Don't you cry with her?
Her father is employed in the large
manufactory of Beatrice. Let me
see, havn't 1 heard a gubernatorial as
pirant in Omaha cry “personal lib
erty?” Is this what he means? But
that is what it is.
A Plea For The Higher Life.
(By a Contributor)
In going up and down this old
world, I have come in contact with
many people who have lived long and
well; who li^ve been a success finan
cially, and possessed much goods.
But upon getting intimate with them,
I discovered that they were sadly
lacking in that which is of roost im
por'ance—tranquility of soul.
They have been engaged with
thingr that could not satisfy. The
one 'thing needful had been neglect
ed. And now, grown old, and about
to die, they were without peace, or
hope 1 have met many a weary
traveler in this sad plight. Who can
measure the heart’s gloom that, holds
no promise, where the consolations of
Christ have no place?
To my readers, permit me tosay,
“God is love,” turn to the overtures
of mercy, God will receive you, and
at eventide it shall be light.
There is another class whom I have
met and known. They began life’s
journey well. Years ago they were
counted as pillars in society and the
church. But they took offense. Some
tiling got in their way and they drop
ped out of the straight and narrow
way, and have wandered in the by
paths of sin ever since. They have
rejected the Christ and made ship
wreck of their faith.
Their attitude to the church is one
of fault finding. They have become
chronic kickers. To them everything
appears wrong. The preachers do
not preach as the fathers did thirty
or forty years ago. There is too
much pride in the church. The poor
are not regarded. Indeed, many are
the faults in their way. 1 would
like to remind these dear people of
the fact, that there is nothing per
fect under (he heavens. What they
need is more love annd less of the
spirit of bitterness.
You who have willfully separated
yourselves from the working forces
of God’s church are in grave danger
of losing your souls. it is the
blessed privilege of every one to
worship God and find the supreme
joy of life in His service. This is
the .secret of all true happiness.
Would you live long and he happy,
love the brethren. Would you have
the peace that passeth understanding,
do your whole duty toward your
