! ALGOKA, IOWA WEDNESDAY OTOBBB 20. 'THE THREE TAVERNS" LAST SUNDAY'S SUBJECT. Ffrofn the Ifeit; Acts, Chapter Vere* IS. a<t follows: "Thfey Came to Meet t'<t a« Par »<t Apflli" Forum life Three T»v*.fin. EVENTEGN miles south of Rome, Italy, there was a village of unfortunate name. A tavern is a place of entertainment. In our time part of the entertainment is a provision of intoxicants. One such place you would think would hare been enough for that Italian village. No, there were three of them, with doors open for entertainment and obfuscation. The world has never lacked stimulating drinks. You remember the condition of Noah on one accasion, and of Abigail's husband, Nabal, and the story of Belshazzar's feast, and Benhadad, and the new wine in old oottles, and whole paragraphs on prohibition enactment thousands of years before Neal Dow was born; and no iloubt there were whole shelves of Inflammatory liquid in those hotels which save the name to the village where Paul's friends came to meet him, namely, the Three Taverns. In vain I search ancient geography for some satisfying account of that village. Two roads came from the sea coast to that place; the one from Actium, and the other from Puteoll, the last road being the one which Paul traveled. There were, no doubt, in that village houses of merchandise and mechanics' shops, and professional offices, but nothing is known of them. All that we know of that village is that it had a profusion of inns—the Three Taverns. Paul did not choose any one of these taverns as the place to meet his friends. He certainly was very abstemious, but they made the selection. He had enlarged about keeping the body under, though once he prescribed for a young theological student a stimulating cordial for a stomachic disorder; but he told him to take only a small dose—"a little wine for thy stomach's sake." One of the worst things about these Three Taverns was that they had especial temptation for those who had just come ashore. People who had just landed at Actium or Puteoli were soon tempted by these three hotels which jvere only a little way up from the beach. Those who are disordered of the sea (for it is a physical disorganiz- er), instead of waiting for the gradual return of physical equipose, are apt to take artificial means to brace up. Of the one million sailors now on the sea, how few of them coming 'ashore will escape the Three Taverns! After surviving hurricanes, cyclones, icebergs, collisions, many of them are wrecked in harbor. I warrant that if a calculation were made of the comparative number of sailors lost at sea, and lost ashore, those drowned by the crimson wave of dissipation would far outnumber those drowned by the salt water. Alas! that the large majority of those who go down to the sea in ships should have twice to pass the Three Taverns, namely, before they go out, and after they come in. That fact was what aroused Father Taylor, the great sailor's preacher, at the Sailors' Bethel, Boston, and at a public meeting at Charlestown, he said, "All the machinery of the drunkard making, soul destroying business is in perfect running order, from the low grog holes on the docks kept open to ruin my poor sailor boys, to the great establishments in Still House square, and when we ask men what is to be done about it, they say, 'you can't help it,' and yet'there is Bunker Hill and you say you can't stop it, and up there are Lexington and Concord." We might answer Father Taylor's remark by saying, "the trouble is not that we can't stop it, but nefeded torn to enable me to do my duty. I will order two cups of coffee to each man at two o'clock In the morning, and at eight o'clock t will pipe all hands to breakfast In Mobile Bay." The* threeTav«rM of tny text were too near the Mediterranean shlprtng. But notice the multiplicity. ^Vhat could that Italian village, so small that history makes but one mention of it, want with more than one tavern? There were not enough travelers coming through that insignificant town to support more than one house of lodgment. That would have furnished enough pillows and enough breakfasts. No. the world's appetite is diseased, and the subsequent draughts must be taken to slack the thirst created by the preceding draughts. Strong drink kindles the fires of thirst faster than it puts them out. There were three taverns. That which cursed that Italian village curses all Christendom today— too many taverns. There are streets in some of our cities where there are three or four taverns In every block; aye, where every other house is a tavern. You cau take the Arabic numeral of my text, the three, and put on the right hand side of it one cipher, and two ciphers, and four ciphers, and that re-enforcement of numerals will not express the statistics of American rum- merles. Even if it were a good, healthy business, supplying necessity, an article superbly nutritious, it is a business mightily overdone, and there are Three Taverns where there ought to be only <NTERESTfNG CHAPTERS FO» $ OUR RURAL.

The fact is, there are In another sense Three Taverns now; the gorgeous Tavern for the affluent, the medium Tavern for the working classes, and the Tavern of the slums, and they stand in line, and many people beginning with the first come down through the second and come out at the third. At the first of the Three Taverns, the wines are of celebrated vintage, and the whiskies are said to be pure, and they are quaffed from cut glass, at marble aide tables, under pictures approaching masterpieces. The patrons pull o« their kind gloves, and hand their silk hats to the waiter, and push back their hair with a hand on one finger of which is a cameo. But those patrons are apt to stop visiting that place. It is not the money that a man pays for drinks, for what are a few hundred or a few thousand dollars to a man of large income—but their brain gets touched, and that unbalances" their judgment, and they can see fortunes in enterprises surcharged with disaster. In longer or shorter time they change Taverns, and they come down to Tavern the second, where the pictures are not quite so scrupulous of suggestion, and the small table is rougher, and the castor standing on It is of Ger,man silver, and the air has been kept over from the night before, and that which they sip from the pewter mug has a larger percentage of benzine, ambergris, creosote, henbane, strychnine, prussic acid, coculus indicus, plaster of paris, copperan, and nightshade. The patron may be seen almost every day, and perhaps many times the same day at this Tavern the second, but he is preparing to graduate. Brain, liver, heart, nerves, are rapidly giving way. That Tavern the second has its dismal echo in his business destroyed and family scattered, and woes that choke one's vocabulary. Time passes on, and he enters Tavern the third; a red light outside; a hiccoughing and besotted group inside. He will be dragged out who :rade laws to restrain intemper- f|iT-pv AftTh PHTTT Tt?

God let him live on for near a century, to show what good habits and cheerfulness and faith in the final triumph of all that is good, can do tot. a. man in this world, and to add to the number of those who would be on the other side to attend his entrance. But he, will come back again! "Yes," say some of you, with Martha, about Lazarus to Jesus, "I know he will rise at the Resurrection of the last day." Ah! I do not mean that. Ministering spirits are all the time coming and going that weiwoii't stop it." We must have more generations slain before the world will fully wake up to the evil. That which tempted the travelers of'old who came up from the seaports of Actium and Puteoli, is now the ruin of seafaring men as they come up from the coasts of all the continents, namely, the Three Taverns. In the autumn, about this time, in the year 1837, the steamship Home went out from New York for Charleston. There were about one hun- 'rtred passengers, some of them widely known. Some of them had been summering at the northern watering places and they were on their way south, all expectant of hearty greeting by their friends -.pn.vthe, wharves. O f .jGharletjtou. But a little more than two days out the jhip struck the rocks. A life boat was launched, biit sank with all Its passengers. A mother was seen standing on the deck of the steamer with her child Jn her arms. A wave wrenched the ehjld from the mother's arms and rolled it into the sea, and the mother leaped after it. The sailors rushed to the bar of the boat and drank themselves drunk. Ninety-five human beings went down never to rise, or to be floated upon the beach amid the fragments of the wreck. What was the cause of the disaster? A drunken ce& • captain.

Admiral Parragut had proper appreciation of what the fiery stimulus was to $maju Jn the navy. An officer pf the warship said to him, "Admiral, won't you consent to give 3ftek a glass of gjpg in the morning? Not enough to ma%e him drunk, out #»pugh to make him flght cheerfully." admiral aasiverpd, "f have been PBjideTObJy, an.d h,ave seen a ' Jiattje 04- \ V9t put I »eyer feuad tUflt f i tf, }' of doors about two o'clock in the morn- Ing and left on the sidewalk, because the bartender wants to shut up; The poor victim has taken the regular course in the college of degradation. He has his diploma written on his swollen, bruised and blotched physiognomy. He is a regular graduate of the Three Taverns. As the police take him in and put him in the ambulance, the wheels seem to rumble with two rolls of thunder, one of which says, "Look not upon the wine when it is red, when it moveth itself aright in the cup, for at last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder." The other thunder roll says, "All drunkards shall h : ave their place in the/lake that burn-, cth with fire and brimstone, * * ' *' With these thoughts 1 cheer Christian retormers in their work, and what rejoicing on earth and heaven there will b.j over the consummation. Within a few days one of the greatest of the leaders in this cause went up to enthronement. Tbe world never had but one Neal Dow, and may never have another, lie has been an illumination to the century. The stand he'took has directly and indirectly saved hundreds of thousands from drunkards' graves. Seeing the wharves of Portland, Maine, covered with casks of West Indian rum (nearly an acre of it at one time), and the city smoking with seven distilleries, he began the warfare against drunkenness more than half a century ago. The good he has done, the homes he has kept inviolate, the high moral sense with wbhth he has infused ten generations, is a story that neither earth nor heaven flan afford to let die. Derided, belittled, caricatured, maligned, for a quarter of a century as few men have been he has lived on until at his decease universal newspaperdom speaks his praise and the eulogiums of his career on this side of the sea have been caught up by the cathedral organ sounding his requiem on the other. His whole life having been for God" and the world's betterment, when at half-past thi'ee o'clock in the afternoon of October second ho left big home on earth surrounded by loving ministers, and entered the gates of his eternal residence, I think there was a most unusual welcome imrt salutation given him. Multitudes enter heaven only because of what Christ has done for them, the welcome not at all intensified because of anything they had dc lie for him. But ail heaven know the story of that good man's life, and the beauty of hits death-bed, where he said, "J loiig to be free." I think all thp reformers pj heaven, came out to between earth and heaven—the Bible teaches It—and do you suppose the old hero just ascended will not come down and help us in the battle that still goes on? He will. Into the hearts of discouraged reformers he will come to speak good cheer. When legislators are deciding how they can best stop the rum traffic of America by legal enactment, he will help them vote for the right and rise up undismayed from •temporary defeat. In this battle will; Neal Dow be tintll the last victory is gained and the smoke of the last dis- .tillery, has curled on the air, and the last tear of despoiled homesteads shall be wiped away. 0 departed nonagenarian! After you have taken a good rest from your struggle of seventy active years, come down again into the flght, and bring with you a host of the old Christian warriors who once mingled in the fray. In this battle the visible troops are not so mighty as the invisible. The gospel campaign began with the supernatural—the midnight chant that woke the shepherds, the hushed sea, the eyesight given where the patient had been without the optic nerve, the sun obliterated from the noonday heavens, the law of gravitation loosing its grip as Christ ascended; and as the gospel campaign began with the supernatural, it will close with the supernatural; and the winds and the waves and the lightnings and the earthquakes will come in on the right side and against the wrong side; and our ascended champions will return, whether the world sees them or does not see them. I do not think that those great souls departed are going to do nothing hereafter but sing psalms and play harps, and breathe frankincense, and walk seas of glass mingled with fire. The mission they fulfilled while in the body will be eclipsed by their post-mortem mission, with faculties quickened and velocities multiplied; and it may have been to that our dying reformer referred when lie said, "I long to bo free!" There may be bigger words than this to be redeemed, and more gigantic abominations to be overthrown th'an this world ever saw; and the discipline gotten here may only be preliminary drill for a campaign In some other world, and perhaps some- other constellation. But the crowned heroes and heroines, because of their grander achievements in greater spheres, will not forget this old world where they prayed and suffered and triumphed. Church militant and Church triumphant but two divisions of the same 'army—right wing and left wing. iu, tfce departed legislators PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY. l)'etv of Them Soemed to Have Leurmut Anything NoW° ffpni Nature. "For.the.stability, and righteousness of our government we are accustomed to think we must pin our .faith on the country people who live 'near to Nature's heart,' " writes Mrs. Lyman Abbott in the October Ladies' Home Journal, the,first of a series of "Peaceful Valley" papers which picture life in an ideal rural community. "But how many of them," she says, "seem to have learned anything noble from her? Her beauty does not refine them, her honesty does not incite them to thoroughness, her free-handeclness does not inspire them to generosity—they become narrow and sordid in the midst of grandeur and liberality. They Imagine there can be nothing in life but work or play, toil or rest, and they feel • a contempt for those who play and rest. They have never learned to mingle work and play, toll and rest in due proportion, and they cease to find any pleasure in life unless they abandon work altogether. Like the tired woman who wrote her own epieaph, they fancy heaven a place where they can 'do nothing forever and ever.' This view of life makes loafers in the village as it makes them in the cities. When a different spirit has found room to grow, a new order of living prevails. Life becomes something more than a slow grinding of the mill, more than a burden, to be endured only because a luxury as well as a necessity. Individuals combine, not for their own advantage, but to multiply ,benefactions, and as strength increases, 'by its right uso, l,he attainment of one worthy and ambitious advantage is only the suggestion and achievement of another." .AdtjncS in Ualrylnj;. T is true that the driry schools are doing much for dairying. It is true that the agricultural papers, and institutes, and speakers, and writers, are doing much for dairying. It is also true that many dairymen have become progressive and are doing much by their example for dairying. Nevertheless, advance In dairying is slow, very slow. And why should it not be? The advance is counted not by what a few do, but by the average of what all are doing. Dairying is a thing that must be dealt with in its parts and not in its whole. Every man and every woman that milks a cow or makes butter is a part of that whole and each part must be dealt with separately. The ad- Vance is more talked about than real, when speaking of the whole. The dirty dairyman has not by any means yet been eliminated. The ignorant feeder and butter-maker are still in evidence. The dairyman who cares little about the condition of the goods at delivery is still a great factor. All of these must be reformed, and the work is slow. It is astonishing to find how numerous are the farmers that neither take papers, nor attend institutes. These are the ones that it is most difficult to reach. They Imagine that they comprise in themselves all knowledge in the lines in which they are working, i For these reasons dairy advance must continue to be the result of constant preacning of what some call the dairy gospel of good cows, good butter.-makers and cleanly habits. Probably there is no better way to reach the common cow owner than the neighborhood meeting. Farmers, especially if neighbors, can say things that will be listened to, when if a stranger (often called, bopk farmers) were to five the same advice it would be rejected. We feel that every reader of this column has a personal work to do in this line. If it be possible to call small meeting of farmers for such discussions, let it be done by all means. Start the ball rolling. Like the little ball in the snow, it will become greater as it rolls. A multitude of these meetings should be held all over the country, and the work of reformation started at the bottom. Strike first at the dirt. That is the greatest and most uncompromising enemy of the dairyman. Then strike at the poor cow. She is a stumbling block that makes many to offend. If these two points can be impressed—cleanliness and good cows —the reform will have been well begun. But some will say, "Why, the farmers already know these things!" Perhaps so, but thay do not realize them. Some • times people know things and allow conditions to go on for years, but suddenly something starts them to thinking of them hard, and they wake up. The wake-up is usually followed by action. This is the case with dairying. Men don't stop to think, at least, do not think in a way that results in action. The days are coming when the same number of cows that are kept now will give double the amount of milk and butter that they do now. The time is comirg when the science of making butter will be so generally diffused that all the product will be twice as valuable as now (not necessarily twice as expensive to the consumer), but the dairymen will be the gainers in the cost of keeping the number of cows .indicated, Dairy advance, is at present largely confined to neighborhoods, which is a' hopeful sign, it shows what influence will do, especially the influence of neighbors. Let every man put his shoulder to the wheel. no mana8WBtot The practical part of poultry business is where the attention must be bestowed. Get tte women interested; .give them good quarters for their fowls; help them, if necessary, to keep them in good order, giving them the proceeds for their pin money, and, with their constant care, that part of the question will be solved. If your poultry house is not Warm, makfc it so, to protect your hens and chicks from cold, damp winds. Have it on a dry hillside, facing the south or east, if yoti can, giving the fowls the advantage df the warmth of the sun in winter. Arrange it so that it can be thoroughly ventilated at all times. Have a hard floor, covered two inches deep with flri gravel, so the droppings can be easilj taken up. The perches should b smooth and not too high, with just as little "riggin" about them and the nes boxes as possible. Everything should be movable, so the whitewash brush can be easily applied on all sides Change the nests often. A few drop? of crude carbolic acid in the white wash, for the perches and nest boxes will be found a good preventive for ver- GEMS OF THOUGHT. Behavior Is a mirror In If we must have thorns ;t us left Destitute! min. Vigilance is the watchword. The comb is always an index to the condition of the fowl. Look at your hem every day; see that they are healthy and keep them so. A good warm mess of potato parings and scraps from the kitchen, all boiled up together, seasoned so it is palatable, and thickened with bran and a little corn meal, is much relished, and excellent for them in the morning; occasionally may be given a tonic of cayenne: pepper,, but not too much. The remainder of the day feed whole grain as they need it. A box well filled with old plastering, dyster shells and charcoal, with a little pounded up fresh every morning for them to pick at, is of great advantage. I find nothing , better to keep them healthy than plenty of broken charcoal. The short cut grass from the lawn during the summer, clean and nicely dried in the shade, is greatly relished by them In winter, when deprived of their natural supply of green feed. Whether in or out of confinement, they must have meat food in some form — the hens demand it to produce eggs in abundance, which they will not fail to do, if fed a little every day, when they can not have access to their natural supply of bugs and worms. It is better to give it to them raw, as nature supplies them. A hen is a machine. Give her plenty of. the rough material,, and she'll return you a nicely formed egg.whlch no mechanic can duplicate. Feed regularly, and especially the young cWcks. There is no kind of stock which appreciates regularity in feeding more than poultry, and those who practice it are sure to find that it pays. Habit has been truly said to be second nature, and all kinds of animal life appreciate the fact. Certain hours should be set apart for feeding the fowls, say seven in the morning and six in the evening, and it will not be long before they will come together on the approach of the feeding hour, and eagerly look for their regular rations. Regular feeding is beneficial alike for those in confinement and those which have their liberty, for i induces the latter to return home at certain hour, and thus prevents losse which would otherwise occur. On th farm, where poultry is seldom, if ever confined, regular daily feed, especial! in the evening, should be adhered to and this is with turkeys an absolut necessity, as their predatory habit would lead them so far away that they would form habits of staying.

Cure tit Poultry, It seems to me there is not much new to be said about poultry raising, especially if one has read the poultry papers, one of which every farmer ought to take. It is the oft-repeated story, but if I tell it again perhaps some one will be benefited by it. Poultry raising in this country has become an extensive business, and is growing more in importance every year. He who the/best fowls of any good "Nine times outer ten," said Uncle Eben, "a gemm.au advises young men ter cliooso some yiithuh business dan whut he got into. He takes it foh granted dat it took a heap mo' dan common smartness ter succeed like be <Ua,"*~Waab4u|ton Star, breed, for market, for breeding, or for exhibition purposes, will not only make his mark as a breeder, but will be looked upon by fanciers as one who displays good judgment in fowl culture We Americans generally look at everything from a financial standpoint. Our first question is, "Will it pay?" That depends altogether on the management. The secret of success is simply doing what you can do well. Certainly, what is worth doing at all is worth doing well. Now, if we begin with that Idea, and a natural love for poultry, we are sure of success. The poultry yard can be managed so that it may become one of the most remunerative portions of the farm. With a little thought, and u trille mpre expense, it is as easy to raise finely bred fowls as those of a common order, and the effect is far more pleasing, lie who wishes to improve his stock from year to year, must be continually weeding out the imperfect birds, anil breeding only from those which show the desirable qualities. If farmers would take as much pride in improving their poultry as they do other stock, their yards would not present such a motley coloring of fowls! Symmetry is altogether disregarded, and breeds are J agd reproved, with ' Footling Oats. Generally and with the larger pro portion of our crops we find it best to haul up and feed out in the barn and feed lots. In doing this so far as the weather will admit we try to feed th corn fodder and coarse fodders in the feed lots, feeding the hay and straw in the barn, says N. J. Shepherd in Nebraska Farmer. But it is often the case that during the fall we will have quite a long spell o? pleasant weather and the stock will do fully .better during the day running the pastures 01 fields than in the close feed lots. We find in many cases that It is a good plan to shelter at night, but to give a full run during the day. In doing thL we find it some advantage to haul out corn fodder and feed in the fields rather than to haul everything to the barn and feed out there and then be obliged to gather up the manure and haul out. AVhile there is hardly any question but that there is some loss in feeding by scattering feed upon the ground and that the manure will not be scattered as evenly as would ordinarily be done when thrown from a wagon. But generally there is a considerable saving -in tiipo and hauling, so much so that it will more than overbalance the loss. In doing this, however, care must be taken not to continue the practice so long that the stock are exposed to cold or storms, or it is a good plan to feed out in the fields when the ground is so soft that the stock will tramp it up But by avoiding extremes the labor may be lessened and time is often an item on the farm.
