BEGINNING Of '
(Selection by Mrs. J. W. Brooks.)
The following statement was re
cently made by a converted gam
bler and ex-saloon keeper before a
mass meeting of over two hundred
men in Portsmouth, Ohio.
"I have been in the saloon busi
nee, with a rumbling room attach
ed, for the laxt four years, and claim
to know something about what 1
am now iroinff to tell V0U. I do
not believe that the gambling den
is near so dangerous, nor does it do
anything like the same amount of
harm, as he social card party in
the home. I give this as my rea
son: In the gambling room ihe
windows are closed tight, the cur
tains are pulled down; everything
is conducted secretly for tear of de
tection, and none but gamblers, as
a rule, enter there. While in the
narlor all have access to the game,
children are permitted to watch it,
young people are invited to partake
in it. It is made attractive and
alluring by giving prises, serving
refreshments and adding high
social enjoyments. For my part,
I never could see the diperenoe
between playing ,'for a piece of sil
ver molded in the shape or money
and silver molded in the shape of
a cup or thimble. The principle
is the same, and whenever property
changes hands, over the luck of
cards, no matter how small is the
value of the p'':e. I believe it is
"Perhai vou have never thougnt
of it, but where do all the gamblers
come from? They are tot taught
in the gambling dens. A 'greener,'
unless he is a fool, never enters a
gambling hell, because be knows
he will be fleeced out of everything
he ' possesses in less than fifteen
minutes. He has learned some
where else before he sets foot inside
of such a place. When he has
nlaved in the parlor, io the social
game of the home, and has become,
proficient enough to win prizes
among his friends, the next step
with him is to seek out the gambling-room,
for be has learned, and
now counts upon his efficiency to
hold his own. The saloon men
and gamblers chuckle and smile
hen they read in the papers of
the parlor games given by the
adieS, for they know that after a
while those same men will become
the patrons of their business. I
sav. then, the parlor game is the
college where gamblers are made
and educated. In the ' name or
God, men, stop this business in
your homes. Burn up you decks
and wash your bands.
'The other day I overheard two
adies talking on the street. One
said: -Tarn going to have a card
party, and am going to the store to
buy a pack of cards. Which are
ie best kind to get 7' Ihe other
iDlied: 'Get the Angel Card. It
has an angel on the back.'

pure angels of heaven into this in
After he had taken his seat an
other converted ex-gambler, who
led the men's meeting in the Second
Presbyterian Church the following
Sabbath, arose and said: "I indorse
every word which the brother be
fore me has just uttered. I was
a gambler. I learned to play
cards, not in the saloon, not in my
own home, but in the homes of my
young friends, who invited me to

Startling "but True
People the world over were horrified
on learning of the burning of a Chicago
theater in which nearly tix hundred
people loet their lives, yet moro than
five time this number or over
3,000 people died from pneumonia in
Chicago during the same year, with
scarcely a pawing notice. Every one of
these cases ol pneumonia resulted from
a cold and could have been prevented
by the timely use of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. A great' many who
had every reason to fear pneumonia
hsve warded it oh by the prompt use of
this remedy. The following is an In
stance of this sort: "Too much cannot
be said in favor of Chamberlain's Couvh
Remedy, and especially for colds and in
fluenza. I know that it cured my
daughter, Laura, of a severs cold, and 1
believe saved her life when threatened
with pneumonia." W. D. Wilcox, Lo
