' "No, Fanny: it is wrong- for ms to be eating this. You can not have nny." Fanny leaned back in her chair, f here were tears iti her eyes, and a puzzled expression of countenance was observed. She could not understand-why her mother ate what she knew to be injurious and denied it to her daughter, xvho thought it very enjoyable. Well, it appeared to me. very incon- Bistcut, yet we know the same inconsistency is being carried on every day. Parents sometimes have intoxicants upon the table, yet tell the children they are not good for thc-in. "It is a Billy habit," they say. "My boy, do -.lot begin, it. .We smoke, we driuk.but it is not good for you /" In the first case the mother said very plainly to her daughter: "I lack character! I have no will-power!" Yet Bhe expected the young and undeveloped girl to do what, she proved was impossible for her to do. Could the little daughter respect her? I think not.

HUSHED IN A KtOf CALL New York Police jfteservea Create a Wild Commotion. • . ., homo \c. i , >, in ;• curtain city, there lived a brilliant man who "knew when to stop." He was relined, talented, intellectual; at the head of an educational department; the compiler of a well-known music book that was used in nearly all the schools of the city. He was beloved and respected by' his assistant teachers and his pupils, and an insinuation on the part of any person relating to his character or reputation was sure to arouse deep indignation. A rumor was ailoat. "Can it be true?" I asked. "No," was the reply, "it is not true! It is circulated by a man who is his enemy and who desires to work him out of his position." "Is he a strictly temperance man?" ^ I asked. "Weil, I can't say that he is. He may take a glass occasionally, but lie knows token to stop ! He does not take enough to hurt him." Two IMma-iH of Alcoholism in 1'fntu-A-Con- n'.clprril b.f Chambtr Of tX-tmticH. Something very like ft temperance address v> as made in the French c-hnm- ber of deputies the other day by M. Lannelongue in discusi-ing piopo'fd reforms in the tax M strong drinks. M. Ijanuelongiie argued against an increase of tax, though he cited in support of his argument the saino class of facts that have been urged in favor of high license and the suppression of the drink Iraltic. He asserts that there are two phases in the history of alcoholism in France, One anterior to 1M5, the other MIK-O that date. Before 1355, the annual consumption of fruit brandio;; was twelve times as great as the consumption of brandies made from materials other than fruits. Alcoholism, previous to 1885, was very rare in France. There were occasional deaths in a few hours from this cause, and there were cases of delirium tremens, but ordinarily the alcoholism of that period left few permanent' traces upon its victims. Drunkenness was frequent, but i-t was a temporary drunkenness, and there were some that believed it to be good and useful. Then came the period after isr>5, when wine alcohol failed and alcohol frt»m grains began to be used t tenstvely. The quantity drunk per head in France more than trebled in a few years, and at the same time crimes and suicides greatly increased in number. AVith the use of the industrial alcohols came a sort of permanent drunkenness, and imperious nve I to which the individual was not alwa;\ able to < ffer successful resistant^. -In the presence o£ disease men olior _ sistance, but ' the characteristic' ol the new alcoholism i that • it renders men incapable of insistence to infection. The man of forty is compared to the man of sixty in thisj regard, and even an old man without organic disease offers more resistance in the face of a malady, because his tissues are not altered as are those of the man that has fallen victim to the now alcoholism. It is not the rich classes who are in this pitiable state, M. Lannelongue said, but the poor, who, ill-nourished and lodged in sunless rooms, add alcoholism to their miseries. These are the persons that pay the tax on alco- Qalct Mdffcot Scene Transformed Into & Bedlam Verging on ft Ulot—Trouble Cnnaocl by n Norvous and Frljjht* toncit Sanitary SALESMAN WANTED, To sell Minnesota crown .Nursery Stock, Seerl Corn and Potatoes for Spring delivery.

Roberts, sanitary superintendent of the health department of New York city, got panic-stricken the other day and turned in an alarm to the board of police foimui°Monors Unit vti'f-ed big' excitement for awhile. The excited superintendent by telephone suddenly demanded an interview with President Eooscvelt. Then he said he wanted fifty policemen at oiiee at Hester and Division streets. There n i-jot in the market there, he said, and he requested that the reserves bo sent immediately. Mr. Jioosevelt Kent Roundsman Tier- ncy downstairs on a run and messages were flashed out from Acting Chief Conlin's desk ordering the reserves of the Bovcnth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth and Thirteenth precincts to the place of danger. In five minutes they arrived on a dead run, hot and clutching 1 their clubs they ran from every point of the compass. Their warlike array burst upon a scene of placid industry and contentment. In the crowded market that extends all along Hester street 1,000 peddlers were carrying on a thriving trade. Not a word of warning had prepared them for the sudden interruption of policemen. The patrolmen on the post stared in nmur/.emeiit and hastened up to inquire what was the matter. Not an ill word had been spoken on thy street all morn- in;r. Never was there a more peaceful holiday market. The arrest of half a hundred butchers for selling live fowls had passed ofl! without a ripple of excitement and the prisoners had been taken to the Essex Market police court and there their cases disposed of. The east end of Division street was a solid mass of bluecoats and the peddlers in the market were beginning to move uneasily when suddenly, with clangor of alarm bells, the patrol wagon from the Elclridge street station tore down Hester street from the opposite direction. It was jammed with policemen, others hanging on behind and still others following after.

Perhaps it may have been so. Ine fact that he took an occasional glass was sufficient cause for slander. Had ,he avoided the appearance of evil, the 'enemy could not have harmed him. We all felt sorry that he had given him cause, and hoped that the injured man "knew when to stop," Years passed away. It was a lovely summer afternoon, when I stood at the station of a railroad in a country village, My attention was suddenly attracted by the shouting of some rude boys. I turned and saw coming down the slope of a hill a prematurely old man. Ue tottered as lie walked. His clothes hung upon him in the most 1 slovenly manner- He was in his shirt sleeves, and he staggered along, while the boys enjoyed the sport. One Of the village people said to me: "That is Mr. « . He has been drinking again! What a pity! He is such a fine musician, and once was at the head of a school, He goes into the parlor of the hotel and gives such floe music, and often become so enthused, 'when he is under the influence of j lUmor, that he has to be .competed to leave" the piano- .H« is ft ^H man, It is so sad to see him ridiculed , by those boys!''

The temperance society of Odessa, Russia, has published*in its Listok the following 1 ten commandments: 1. Thou shalt try to lead a sober life. 2. Thou shalt not treat the fellows with spirituous drinks.' 3. Thou shalt not rent any part of thy house, thy store or thy shop as a place for the sale of spirituous drinks. 4. Thou shalt not trade in spirituous drinks. 5. Thou shalt not engage in the manufacture of intoxicating liquors and wines of any kind. 0. Thou shalt preach against drunkenness. 7. Thou shalt persuade all thy friends and acquaintances to join the temperance society, 8. Thou shalt never repeat or circulate an opinion in favor of the drinking of intoxicating beverages. 9, Thou shalt do all that is in thy power to prevent others drinking intoxicating beverages. 10, Thou bhalt watch the doings of those who trade in spirituous drinks and promptly report to the authorities and of the actions by which they criminate themselves before the law, —Templar. to be arrested between the two advancing columns. Instantly there was a jam and wild uproar. Thousands following the patrol wagon ran in from every side street, and Hester street became in a moment impassable. The patrol wagon was caught in the jam. The driver swore, the horses reared, women shrieked and ran to their children and the men gathered in knots and cursed the police loudly. There was every promise and prospect of a riot in the market that a moment before was so peaceful, when the patrol wagon found a gap in the crowd and slipped through. The crowd gave way and the police pushed forward toward Division street, where they joined the reserves from three other precincts standing about asking each other what was the matter. The crowd following caught the ru- rnor of a riot and took in the situation. It scattered, jeering, and the market resumed its peaceful aspect. The reserves went home in ill humor. To the anxious inquiries of Acting Chief Conlin over the wire as to the riot the answer was retxrrned that it was a hoax. Then President Roosevelt got mad and gave Superintendent Eoberts a verbal dressing down. The latter pave the lame excuse that he feared trouble in arresting the Hebrew dealers in live fowls. The sale of live chickens in New York city is prohibited under the sanitary code. Though he had ffty sanitary policemen in the market he did not think them enough. The chances are Dr. Roberts will have to stand trial for his poor judgment. ., making a mist generousCoffer of^OO ad Children about Jesus."
