She said that work .in the temperance line had changed since Gough was on the platform, the people have given up moral suasion; there is room for a better kind of work. : We have ehed tears for it but that is past, something practical is needed, * This is a great age for reforms and we have much to be thankful for.

Drunkenness , is not hereditary, says Dr. Keeley, but a disease. Like_any other diseased person can they be the parents of healthy children ? Not only imbeciles are the result, but many are void of vitality, weak of body or mind.

A great deal of sport wac elicited from that part of the evening's program. By that time the appetites of the audience were wetted up for apple pie. Six numbers of a kind were written on slips and dlstrubted among the people. Over.twenty sets were given out, making over one hundred and twenty present. The sets of six then hunted up each other and sat down, this took a good while, for it was no easy task for j each one to find and get together the other five.

He is a great lover of skating, but his duties kept him pretty busy, eo his chances for that graceful movement were not as frequent as he would wish. So one Sun- ; day he concluded the skating'was just good enough to try his hand and feet at it. So he evaded his wife when she askedrhim-tolgd-lo" church -with her, You know he did not feei' just well enough and it was better for him to stay at home and the many other ways that husbands have of evading their wives. You know how it Is yourself. No sooner bad she gone than he recuperated very quickly from his indisposition, and in company with his son,' skipped down across lots'to the river light where a smooth spot of ice was en. Their skates were soon fastened on and he made a grand splurge and tie "splurged" right on to probably the only thin ice on the river and he went in up to his arm pits. He was helped out and he struck home looking like a ipe^ dog and nearly frozen before he could get a dry suit of clothes on. He was dressed all but bis stocking, and to save his neck he could not find a mated pair in the house end he was forced to put one white and one black stocking on. He waa mum when bis wife came home but before the day was over the two colored socks gave him away and of course, woman like, demanded an investigation and it all came out and now he declares, with a solemn oath, never to goikating again on Sunday. • *' - : An Odd Spirit Level.
