Bui the temperance reformer who abuses such a law, on the ground that it is a compromise with sin, that it li- censes sin, does not understand the meaning of the word.— The Inde pendent. Which Is Better—Beer Water. or A man once said to me, “ Do you believe there is more strength in a glass of water than in a mug of ale?” “Stop a bit,” I answered, “that’s not a fair comparison. You pay - five cents for your-mug of ale—1 g^t my glass of water for nothing Besides, when 1 drink my glass of water, I am satisfied with it; but if* you drink 'a glais^ of ■ alp; directly you must. send down another to keep it company. Sup pose now you get a quart and pay twelve cents for it, and I take the same amount of money and pay six cents for steak, and two cents for potatoes, two cents for bread, two cents for apples and have a —gT&ss br Tresh water for nothing? Which is the best ? I eat my din ner and am satisfied with it, and go back to my work and earn more money. Yo go ba'ck to the saloon to get more ale, to spend more money, and waste your time.” If the beer drinker will abstain long enough to get rid of the effects of his beer, he will find himself able to do much more work than when he drinks. One of the greatest champions of our day, when he is training for a contest, says there is nothing like cold water and the dumb-bells. There is no greater mistake than to suppose that l»eer and spirits strengthen a men. They only stir him up and use up his strength. I drove twenty-four miles the other day. When I got within a mile or so of home my horse flagged. 1 gave him a sharp cut with my whip and he went faster, but I did not say, “ Pre strengthened mg horse V If that’s the way to strengthen him, why not let him live on whip cord ? Alcohol is a whip to him thaf.ciri'nk.s it, and fie is a great fool that whips himself. Some years ago two men took an early start and walked over to a neighboring town twenty miles a strengthening drink. “ No,” said they, ’• we are teetolars, and we have had our lunch.” But he could not go without a priming of ale. At last they were off, and for a while they all kept ev.n step, till after some miles, the beer „man began to Hag, and, at the-way house he must'have a bracer. After three miles more he wanted another, and this time it was whisky. Finally ritfifteen miles he gave out entirely and stopped fur the night, wnefe he was laid up for a day.or two, while they walked on home, and die next day were fresh for business.

It was my own fault and proved a sharp lesson lo me. 1 was engaged to address a TSrge numBeFof children Irr’iTieTaT' ter noon, the meeting to be held on the lawn back of the Baptist church in providence, R. 1. In the after noon a friend met me and said : “ I have first rate cigars, will you take a few ?” “ No, thank you.” “ Do take half-a-dozen.” “ I have nowhere to put thorn.” “ You can put half-a-dozen in your cap. I wore a cap in those days. 1 put the cigars into it, and at the appointed time 1 went to the meet ing. 1 ascended the platform and faced an audience of more than tw-o thousand children. As it was out of doors I kept my cap on, for fear of taking cold, and I forgot all about the cigars. Towards the close of my speech I became much in earnest, and after warning the boy against bad com pany, bad habits and the saloon, I said : “ Now, buys, let us give three rousing cheers for temperance and for cold water. Now, then, three cheers Hurrah anti taking off my cap I waved it most vigorously, when away went the cigars right into the middle of the audience. The remaining cheers were very of sight. My feelings were* stilt more aggravated by a boy coming upthe-steps of the -platform with one of those dreadful cigars, saying: “Here’s one of your cigars, Mr. Gough.” Though I never afterwards put cigars in my cap or hat, when go ing to a meeting, I an ashamed to say it was sometime after that be fore I gave up cigars altogether.— A . . . .
