once brilliant, gltted and admired
man became a miserable object indeed.
This and this only, had wrought all
hail brought about, too, till the sor
row that meek, patient. Amy Harding
now daily bore. It was no longer
with delightful expectancy that she
watched for her husband's coming, or
listened so eagerly, as she had been
wont to do, for tlie sound of his foot
steps. Ah, no; if lie did listen, it
she did watch at all for bis coming. It
was with far diD'crent feelings, for
whenever le came it was always iu a
drunken, beastly state. 8huikler then,

him, aud obeyed his commands in a
hopeless, despairing manner, that
would Ijave excited the pity of any
1 toy by day lrcr sufferings liecmie

bear. Her hnsband became more un
kind to her but she still bore bis cruel
taunts and harsh treatment with great
meekness and true heroism. She did
not despair though her efforts towards
winning her husband back from the
ways of evil bad been fruitless, but
citing with all the earnestness and
trust fulness ot her nature to tlie hone
of his reformation, unconscious that
the worst was yet to come.
I cannot describe to you liow greatly
this young wife suffered howaticnt,
how meek she was what hoH'tttl,
heartfelt prayers she uttered for tlie
sake of him who had solemnly prom
ised to cherish and protect her. Site
attempted to conceal all this from her
friends, but it was imixissihle to do so.
They soon saw plainly what was em
bittering her whole welfare, and urged
her to leave her husband.
"IiCave him at once, if he is not
kind to you,'' many said. "You liave
friends, relatives, too, who would not
see you suffering from his brutal ty
ranny. You are enduring far more
tlian you-oin possibly bear, nnd are
growing iwler every" day. it Is a
shame ! The yoke is already too heavy
for your shoulders, and you should
cast "it aside. Leave him; you have
every exewe. for reason demands it.
Do not be forever in bondage to him,
a slave to his every whim!''
To all tills liad Amy merely shaken
her head, saying with a taint smile,
"I cannot forsake him. loving him
as 1 do. It is my duty to stand by
hira. trusting ever in God for his re
formation. Many sighed and shrugged their

she still liad their heartfelt sympathy,
while her intemperate husband re
wived from all wltnt they deemed bis
conduct merited. The finger of Horn
was pointed at him wherever lie went,
wldfe sneers and words of condemna
tion fell upon his ear.
He heeded not all this but sank
deeper and deeper into the whirlpool
of dissipation, utterly ignoring every

Amy saw. with the extreme bitter
augnish of her heart how reckless her
husband had become, and tliat, unless
some change for the better occurred in
him, that his present evil habits and
gay companions were forsaken, ami
his return to tlie path of sobriety made
sure, his nte could not be otherwise
than that of tilling a drunkard' grave,
What could she do she asked herself
more thin once, but tlrcrc cAme no
definite answer to this all-important
MRMatiou. But however dark her
MUivyny seemed. liowyr clouded
lajr future might be, she would not
desert her huibaud iu his hour ot dls-
Srace, but with that faithfulness aud
rniness so charnetertstfe of M r, tlU'
trusted n the hopeof bis redemption
from tin spivs of evil.
Alone she sat one night In Ircr small
and cheerless room, awaiting the re
turn of her recreant husband. In one
band slie held a packet of letters, while
the other rested upon a small manuscript-book
or journal; both were
fond mementoes of tlie liappy bygone
iiast, and were carefully preserved by
her for many years. From their con
tents slie gleaned tliat peace and com
fort which she so greatly needed.
Those letters which she gazed so fond
ly upon were written to her by lier
mother, who had always striven to
plant in the heart of her only child a
few seeds of truth.
The past, with all its associations,
was brought vividly to her memory
by the perusal of Hayse missives. Amy
viewed again her happy childhood's
home, lier loving parents, and her
kind, dear friends all who had made
her life so full of sunshine. One by
one tlie bright visions of tlw past came
before lier. Tlie letters were at last
laid carefully aside, and she turned
her attention to the little manuscript
book, which wc have already made
mention of. Slowly and eagerly slie
turned over page after page of well
written paper, aud then read aloud
some passages which slie had penned
on several occasions.
In a low, tremulous voice she read
on, unconscious that she had any list
ener to the written recital of her suf
ferings; but he who had just then
entered the room with a Arm, almost
steady tread, heard all. He listened
for the first time how greatly he had
wronged that trail delicate creature.
Those feelings which had been so long
dormant and dead were now fully
awakened ; remorse filled the rein pl
ant man's heart, lleadvanced slowly
tc wards Amy, and glanced over her
shoulder. Her head was bowed down
ppoti her hands, and her tears were
falling fast, for slie could not keep
"Oh, Father in lienven," slie mur
mured, "help me, I pray thee: I have
been so desolate, so utterly alone so
little loveu 01 late."
The piteous cry came from the very
depths of her heart, ami she could not
repress its utterance. It stirred Wylls
Harding's whole being, and with a
voice husky with emotion, he cried
"Oh Amy, look up! say that you
forgive me! 1 Inive wronged you
greatly, God knows, but 1 vow at
once to shun my evil ways to live
only for your sake, Amy, and the good
of others. Trust me, my wife, and be
lieve that my repentance is true."
He said this witli a great effort, this
strong man was weeping like a child,
but Amy's arms were about his neck,
Amy's head was pillowed upon his
bosom, and he felt then tliat the heavy,
goading chains which bod SO long la-id
him in bondage were now broken;
tlie dark, sombre clouds had passed,
letting in the sunlight of peace and
a!Jy. lie was a new man now. inat
mgllt was lie is-ginnii.g 01 a new
life to him. He formed many noble
resolutions for t ho future, and with
an humble, contrite heart, prayed as
he liad cover done before for guidance
in the pathway of Hie. These resolu
tions were well kept. True lie laid
many temptations, but with Amy ever
by his side, with renewal hope beam
ing brightly in his heart, he became a
tnie and good man.
Header mine, I cannot say much
more. My motive in writing out for
yon this brief history of Amy Hard
ing's sad experience, was to show the
blighting effect of tlie fascinating but
terrible evil w hich has grown up
among us. Oh. speed the temperance
cause, and may its hope-reviving laws
save those who are near aid dear to
you and me.
A friend of ours, who is a clerk in a
New York mercantile establishment,
relates a colloquy from which a
sprightly youth in the same store
came out second best. A poor boy
came along with his machine, inquir

'Don't tldnk we have," replied the
young gentleman, facetiously ;
can't you sharpen wits?"

tlie American Peace Society, and he

he had not fully considered this sub

He lielieved tliat if a man struck him
a blow, it was fair and best to rti lk
