and a disgraceful death. lief ore its
baleful fire the sanctity of woman fades

beautiful world loses all its charm. The
lives wrecked upon the rock of sensuality
are strewn in every direction. Again
and again with endless repetition, young
men yield to the song of the siren that
beguiles them to their death. They
learn nothing, they see nothing, but

Every voung man who reads this ar

choose either. . He may throw himself
away on a few illegitimate delights which
cover his brow with shame in the pres
ence or. his mother, ana pecome an oiu
man before his time with all the wine
drained ont of his life; or ho may grow
up into a pure, strong manhood, held in
healthy relation to all the ioys that per
tain to that high estate. He may be
beast in his heart, or he may have a wife
whom he worships, children whom he
delights in, a self-respect which enables

society, lie may have a dirty imagina
tion, or one that hates and spurns all im
purity as both disgusting and poisonous.
In brief, he may be a man. with a . man s
powers and immunities, or a sham of
man a whited sepulchre conscious
that he carries with him his own dead
bones and all uncleanness. It is a mat

the essential quality and certain destiny
of the other. The man who says he can
not control himself not only lies, but
places his Maker in blame. He can con
trol himself, and if he does not. ho is
both a fool and a beast. The sense of
security and purity and self-respect that

' pleasures of a world for all time.
tt? SECOND CANPLE.
Wine and strong drink form another
candle in which millions have singed
themselves, and destroyed both body and
soul. Here the signs of danger are more
anDarent than in the other form of
. t ' x 1
sensuality, oecause mere is- ies secrecy.
The candle burns in open space, where
all men can see it. Law sits behind and
sanctions its burning. It pays a princely
revenue to the Government. Women
flaunt the gauzes in it. Clergymen
sweep their robes through it. Respecta
bility uses it to light its banquets. In
many regions ol this country it is a
highly respectable candle. Yet, every
: year sixty thousand persons of this coun
try die of intemperance; and when we
think of the blasted lives that live in
want and misery, of wives in despair, of
loves bruised and blotted out, of chil
dren disgraced, of almshouses filled, of
" crimes committed through its influence,
of industry extinguished, and of disease
engendered, and remember this has been
going on for thousands of years, wher
ever wine has been known; what are we
to think of the men who. still press into
the fire? Have they any more sense
than the moths? It is almost enough to
shake a man's faith in immortality to

There is just one way of safety, and
only one, and a young man who stands
at the head oi his career can choose
.whether he can walk in it, or the way of
danger. There is a notion abroad among
men that wine is good that when prop
erly used it has help in it that'in a cer
tain way it is food. We believe that no
greater or more fatal hallucination ever
possessed the world, and that none so
great ever possessed it for so long a time.
Wine is a medicine, and men would take
no more of it than of uny other medicine
if it were not pleasant in its taste, and
' 1- 1 - A. ... J-
agreeaDie in its nrsi enecis. ioe men
who drink it, drink it because they like
it. The theories as to its healthfulness
comeafterward. The world cheats itself,
and tries to' cheat itself in this thing;
and the priests who prate of "using this (
world as not abusing it," and the chem
ists who claim a sort of nutritious prop
erty in alcohol which never adds to
tisue (!) and the men who make a jest of
vriiterdrinking all know perfectly wef
that wine and Btrortjr drink alwavs have
done more ktriiF4han good in the
worlds and alvrvys will until - that mil
lennium comesjrhose feet are constantly
tripped rom under it by the druhkarcs
that lieprone in its p ith. The millen
nium with a grog shop at every corner,"
is just as impossible as security with a
room In the house. All men know that
drink is a curse, yet ; young men sport
around it as if there werej something very
desijable in it, and sport, until i they are
hopelessly singed, and I then f join the
great, sad army that, with undiminished
numbers, presses on to its certain death.
We do not like to become an erhorter
in these columns, but, if it were neces
sary, we would , plead with young men
upon weary knees to touch not the ac
cursed destroyer. Total abstinencernow
and forever, is the only guaranty in ex
istence against a drunkard's life and
death, and there is no good that can
possibly come to a man by; drinking.
Keep out of the candle.' It will always
singe your wings or destroy you.
A Stuffed lilon; !
Some days since a saloon keeper on
Qratio avenue paid certain parties in
Chicago 825 for a stuffed lion to add to
the attractions of his saloon, and the
other morning as the place was being
scrubbed out the lion was placed at the
front door to keep him out of the wet.
Half a block down the street a farmer
was having his wagon repaired and a big
bull dog was chained to a hind axletree.
He grew uneasy the minute the lion was
rolled out, and it needed only a few en
couraging words from the boys to render
him half-frantic. He growled and tore
and plunged around and attracted quite
a crowd, among which was a man who
remarked: ! !
"That's a purty brave dog j of yours,
stranger." , !
"Brave! I'd like to see the man or
beast Ire wouldn't tackle," replied the
owner. , .
"I dunno about that.' I never saw a
dog yet who'd stand before a lion."
"Well, here's one who'd stand before
two lions. See how anxious he is to get
"Yes, but he puts that on because he's
chained. If he was loose you could
not get him within a rod of that speci
man." ' - !
"Couldn't, eh? Maybe you want to
hear yourself talk.
"Well, I dunno. I'm opposed to bet
ting, card-playing, dancing and all that;
but seeing you are rather sassy about
this, I've got half a dollar here which
says that you can't get that dog to go
within six feet of that lion.
"Put up the money put up the
moneyl" shouted the j farmer, as he
went down into" his own pockets after the
The money was put up, the crowd fell
back, and the farmer's face wore a smile
of triumph as he still further excited the
dog. and then slipped his collar. .With
a yell of rage the "canine." made a bee
line for the king of beasts, and in another
moment there was reason for j a terrific
yell of applause, Dog and lion filled the
air. so to sav. The lion was rolled over
and over, grabbed by the throat and
shaken around, drawn across the street
and back by the ear, and when the dog
finally let up on the corpse the battle
ground was covered with hair and hay
and sawdust and glass eyes. At that
moment the saloon keeper rushed ont, a

"Dot lion's cost me uwenty-five tollers

"Who put up this! job?"! demanded
the officer as he glared! around on the
By and by a deep silence fell upon the
crowd, and m a voice which i had only
kindness in it, the owner of the lion said
he must have his S25 or be would start
for the police court. The policeman said
it was certainly'a case for the courts.and

The clear-headedness and precision of
the general whose whole art of war cul
minated in being the strongest at a par
ticular point is shown by his often using
a fresh paragraph for a fiesh idea, and in
the profusion of space and light between
the pages, the words, and often between
the letters of this earlier handwriting.
But the intuition, the eagle-eye which
enabled him always to sieze this point of
concentration, j is manifested by the fre
quent separation of the letters in the
words. Like Mazarin, too, hq run3 sev
eral words together; a mark of a deduc
tive logician, and of the positive, practi
cal man, who 'tends rapidly toward the
realization of his aims.- His strong will,
his masterful and despotic nature, are
denoted by M19 forcible manner in which
he crosses his 't" high up. Wonderful
tenacity is shown by the "harpoons," or
horizontal pot-hooks which termi
nate the last stroke of many words;
they are, as I it were, the claws df
the eagle. A profusion of club-liko
strokes show indomitable resolution and
obstinacy, which may seem to have been
intractable by j the implacable hardness
and angular rijgidity of tie whole writ
ing. The dash of meanness which was
always present in the man who gave a
name to "corporal" tobacco, is shown in
the little crooks which sometimes com
mence or terminate the letter "n,"and in
his signature, which was not royal, like
that of Lonis XIV. Until he became
Emperor he 'always wrote i his name
Buona, or Bona Parte, or abbreviated it
with B. P. Afterward he wrote Na
Poleon, or N. P.-VfSt James' Gazette. -

A. DEFINITION U BH EU1IATIS JI.
If you have a thorn or splinter in your finger and
you put on ' Chloroform, or, some other drug, you
stop the sensibility of pain for a time only. The
thorn is still there, and as soon as the effect of the
drug dies away the pain returns. Iq order to get rid
of the pain you must have that thorn plucked ont of
the flesh' That is precisely the same way .with
Rheumatism; you might rub on the skin some drug
to stop the pain for a little time, but the paitj is
sure to return as soou as the effect of the drug dies
away. ' Now it has been proven beyond the slightest
donbt that Rheumatism is in the deepest Channels,.
of the Blood, and that tnere is no other way to reach
it only through the Blood. This has been demon
strated right here in Portland by dozens, of people
that have been cured by Dr. Henley's Rheumatic
Neutralizes That it is the only Medicine that has
Ever Reached the case and made Lasting and Per

Eradicating Rheumatism from the system is through
the Blood. It is a pack of nonsense to attempt any
other method, that is, if you would wish a Perma

The Doctor has come to the . conclusion, after
twenty-two years travel and close investigation, that
the Liver has a great deal to do with Rheumatism.
A man or woman with a good sound Liver seldom or
ever has any pains or aches. The Doctor has got up
a Concentrated Liver Pill, one pill for a dose. One
of these Pills has more effect in rousing the torpid

with an incurable kidney disease, and had been

Oregon Kidney Tea, and from time ta time seut him

him the following letter:

hesitation In saying that I have been much benefited
by the use of the Oregon Kidney Tea as a remedy for
a kidney difficulty which has troubled me for six or
eight years. I can heartily recommend it to those'
who are similarly afflicted, as a safe and agreeable
remedy. I shall test Its virtues further, for I have
great faith in it as a specific for many diseases of
the kidneys. Respectfully yours.
