aaie Sensible .Remarks Upon let jiaper
ance, and Its Remedy. ,
Ths Women's Christian Tem-
paaaace Uuion, of . Corvallis,
beld a god .neetiog at the Bap
tist clinrcli last Sunday. The
edifica Via tcell filled with peo
ple and the exercises were inter
estiaj. Mrs. Sanders presided
at the organ and the congrega
tion joined heartily in the sougs
selected from the Gospel Hymns.
Rev. Tiark Noble oonductcd the
Scriptural reading, after which
Rev. F. L. Meore offered prayer,
when Rev. R; L. Meily made an
address upon the subject1 of tem
perance. .The general outlines
of his remarks were:
; The curse ef intemperance and
the remedy for it. He began by
saying that if he had na titer
reason than that of his own jp
perience with intemperance, he
would hate it. He had witness
ed, while ia college, tile blight
of its influence ; npsn a fellow
student who went. Ifom bad toi
worse In his work, and finally to
his death, his bier being followed J
to the station by the student
body with silent tread and Htt-
covered heads X sad lesson to
all of the baneful power f this
evil. He had known a child de
serted by its inebriat parents;
he had stood ia Baltimore at the
grave of that illustrious Boet,
Edgar Allen Poe, who died a
raving drunkard. -' These in
stances, if no other knowledge
were had, would cosvinco him of
the iniquity of intemperance,.
The speaker then discussed
methods te relieve the people
from the pest. He said parents
must begin with the home and
fill the miad of tlie child with
noble ambitions, with firmness
to withstand the seductive influ
ences of evil of every form fonnd
in society especially liquor
dri&king. Bnild up character
in the youth; make him noble,
make him strong ta resist terup
tatiou. Remove as much as. pos
sible all . kifids of tempiatioa,
but depend more upon making
real men and women of the chil
dren. Naxt, the people must
have a strong public sentiment
iu favor of good and against ; the
bal. They cannot depend tison
any kind of legislation without a
stroug ptiplic senfimeut to "'en-1
iefce the laws. " :
Let the church, let this organ-
izatien, the noble Women's
Christian Temperance Union, j
foster and build up such a public
desira for law and order that all
these evils-will be abated. - They ;
must not pass a law and then
give it over, but they must work
in Season and out of season far
the upbuilding of a moral senti
ment m the comrnumty.' The
speaker predicted that the. time
would eventually come when
this hydra-headed mssster would
be driven from oar land. ';.
