The shooting gallery at the upper
end of Main street was kept open last
Sunday, and the discharging of fire
arms was continued at intervals
throughout the day, much to the an
noyance of people living near this
scene of Sabbath desecration. If the
man in charge of this place of amuse- j
meut nas a license tuus to amict a
sober, law-abiding citizenship, we have
no word of rebuke, but If this loud
mouthed shooting match be run in de
fiance of law, we say set the brakes.
If a supine citizenship will tolerate
this sprout of iniquity, they would
better put the park in order, arrange
the seats, aud the Sunday concert and
beer garden will soon be inaugurated.

An enthusiastic meeting was held at
the C. P. church on last Sunday at 4,
p. m. The meeting was open to men
only, and the object was to consider
how best to conserve the morals of the
town, to promote law and order, to
preserve the sanctity of the Sabbath,
and to secure united action with a view
to elevating the standard of morals in
our town. Not that Lebanon is worse
in this regard than other towns, but
believing that a wholesome regard for
all that is pure and manly and en
nobling is for the best interests of a
community, our citizens have been
prompted to take this advtmce step.
Aside from the church and every the
ological system, the moral element has
always determined the true value of
civilization; vice has meant danger,
virtue has meant safety. Connivance
at iniquity is an aftront to the spirit of
virtue, and is equivalent to opening
the flood-gates and liberating torrents
of crime. The case is one that appeals
not to benevolence, not to philosophy,
but strictly to the moral sense. If the
insane idea which some entertain of
allowing vice and iniquity to go un
checked, and wickedness and crime to
go untrammeled, were seriously pro
posed, all good men would at once
combine. "In times of peace prepare
for war." Let everybody attend the
meetme next Sunday at 4 P. M.. and
thus escape the humiliation of trusting
to feebler hands the female sex a
duty which properly belongs to man
hood. Three Families Arrested on the Streets

that your "dearest" Is the embodiment
if perfi-'cticjn, goodness niid sweetness

an angelic pair of wIiiks to (germinate,
you are anxious to make her believe
that you are the smartest man that
was ever made. This Is a very com
mon conceit among young muu who
suffer with heart disorder! and we may
add right here that in an ailectlou of
this kind the brain Is apt to bo in
volved. If she be the right kind of
lrlsho will think as you wish; not
realise you are really an knowing as
you pretend to lie, or even half as
much, but because the reinale sex has
lieen endowed with large li'-ails, and
with the heart they cannot help be
lieving the best about you. Woe lie
unto you, my boy, If you try to make
her believe you tire greater than you
are; you will find It to be about the
most stupid blunder a lover ever com
mitted. Women are eeoerallv ac
