One warm and pleasant summer eve
We sat beneath a tree,
And she, the silence to relieve.
This riddle asked of me:
"If thirty-two," she shyly said,
"Is freezing point, do try
To tell me what" she hung her head
"Is squeezing point?" asked I.
She bowed assent, my arm passed 'round
That pretty little'maid:

the Nation's Curse.
He said: ;

..
1 am somewhat inquisitive to hnd out j
what are in those basket.. 1 look in
and fnul the gory bends of seventy
slain princes. As the baskets arrive at
the gate of the palace, the heads are
thrown into two heaps, one on either
side of the gate. In the morning the
kins conies out. ad looks upon the
bleeding, ghastly heads of the massa
cred princes. Looking on either side
the gate, he cries out with a ringing
emphasis' "Who slew all these?"
M . al i . W
j We have, my friends, lived to see a
! more fearful massacre. There is no use
; of my taking your time in trying to give
I vou statistics about the devastation and
the death which strong drink hath
wrought in this country. Statistics do
not seem to mean anything. We are
so hardened under these statistics that
j the fact that fifty thousand more men
j are slain or fifty thousand less men are
j slain, seems to make no positive im
j pression on the public mind. Suffice
i it to sav. that intemperance has slain
! an innumerable company of princes
the children of God's roval family: and
at the ga.e of every neighborhood there
J are two heaps of the slain; and at the
I door of every household there are two ;
j heaps of the slain: and at the door of
j the legislative hall there are two he-tps
of the slain: and at the door of the
university there are two heaps of the
slain; and at the gate of this nation
th re are two heaps of the slain. When
T look upon the desolation I am almost
frantic with the scene, while I cry out.
"Who slew all these?" I can answer
that question in half a minute. The
ministers of God who have given no
warning, the courts of law that have
offered the licensme, the women who
give strong drink on New Year's day,
the father and the mother 4vho have
rum on the sideboard, the hundreds of
thousands of Christian men and wo
men in the land who are stolid in their
indifference on this subject thev slew
all these!
THE SORROWS AND THE DOOM OF THE
DRUNKARD.
I propose in this discourse to tell
vou what I think are the sorrows and
the doom of the drunkard, so that you
to whom I speak may not come to the
torment.
Some one says: "You had better let
those subjects alone." Why. my breth
ren, we would be glad to let them alone
if they would let ns alone; but when I
have in my pocke. now four requests
saying, "Pray for my husband, pray
for my son, pray for my brother, pray
for my friend, who is the captive of
strong drink," I reply, we are ready to
let that question alone when it is wil
ling to let us alone; but when it stands
blockiug up the way of heaven.and keep
ing multitudes away from Christ and
heaven, I dare not be silent lest the
Lord require their blood at my hands.
I think the subject has been kept
back very much b' the merriment
people make over those slain by strong
drink. I used to be very merry over
these things, having a k en sense of the
ludicrous. Therewas something very
grotesque in the gait of- a drunkard.
It is not so now; for I saw in one of
the streets orMiiladelphta a sight that
chanired the whole subject to me.
There was a young man being led
home. He was very much intox
icated he w;is ravi.ig with intoxica
tion. Two voting men were leading
him along. The boys booted in the
street, men laughed, women sneered;
but I happened to be very near the
door where he went in it was the
door of his father's house." I saw him
go up stairs. I heard hinrshouting.
hooting and blaspheming. He h id
lost his hut, and the merriment in
creased with the mob un'.il he came to
the door, and as the door was opened
his mother came out. When I heard
her cry, that took all the comedy away
from the scene. Since that time when
I see a man walking through the
street, reeling, the comedy is all gone,
and it is a tragedy of tears and groans
aud heartbreaks. Never make any
fun orcund me about t he grotesqueness
of a diunkard. Alas for his home!
HIS GOOD NAME MELTS AWAY.
The first suffering of the drunkard
is the loss ff Jiis good najue. Gd ha
m arranged it that no rajtn ewer loses
his ;od name except by his own act.
All the hatred of men and all the as
saults of devils cannot destroy a man's
good name, if he really maintains his
integrity. If a man i industrious and
ffiire and Christian, God looks after
tim. Although he tnayv be bombarded
for twenty or thirty years, his integri
ty is never lost and his good name is
never sacrifice. No force on earth or
in hell could capture such a (iibrulter.
j But -when it is said of a man, He
j drinks," and it can Tbe proved, then
j what employer wants him for a work
man? what store want him for a
member? who'will trust him? what
dying man would appoint him his ex-knew what they suffer. Do not tell

"He drinks; he drinks." That blasts
him. When a man hes his reputa-

at the bottom ot the sea. There are

(M,k out that there is no doubt of your
sobriet y. Do not create an v suspi-
ciou by going in and out of immoral
places, or by any odor of your b eath,
or by any glare of our eye, or by any
unnatural tiuah of your cheek. You
cannot afford to do it, for your good
name is your only capital, aud when
that is blasted with the reputation of
taking strong drink, all is gone.
HE RESPECTS HIMSELF NO MORE.
Another loss which the inebriate
suffers is that of self-respect.
Just
soon as a man wakes up and finds that
he is the captive of strong drink he
feels demeaned. I do not care how
reckless he acts. He may say, "I
don't care;" he does care. He cannot
look a pure man in the eye, unless it is
with positive force of resolutijn.
Thr e-fourths of his nature is destroy
ed; his self-resject is gone; he savs
things he would not otherwise say; he
does things he would not otherwise do.
When a man is nine-tenths gone with
strong drink, the hrst thing l.e wants
to do is to persuade you that he can
top any time he wants to. He cannot,
The Philistines have bound him hand
and foot, and shorn his locks, and put
out his eyes, and are making him grind
iu the mill ot a great horror. He can-j
not stop. I will prove it. He knows1
his course is bringing disgrace and ruin
upon himself. He loves himself. If
he could stop he would. He knows
his course is bringing ruin upon his
family. He loves them. He would
stop if he could. He cannot. Per
haps he could three months or a year
ago; not now.
Just, ask him to stop
for a month. He cannot; he knows
he cannot, so he does not try. I had
a friend who for fifteen years was
going down under this evil habit. He
had large means. He had given thou
sands of dollars to Bible societies and
reformatory institutions of all sorts.
He wiis very genial aud very generous
and very lovable, and whenever he talk
ed about this evil habit he would say,
"I can stop an' time." But he kept
going on. going on, down, down, down,
down. His family would say, "i wish
you would stop." "Why," he would
reply, "I can stop any time if 1
want to." After awhile he had de
lirium tremens; he had it twice; and
yet after that he said, "I could stop
any time ;f -wanted to." He is dead
now. What killed him? Rum! Rum!
And vet among his last utterances was,
"I cm stop at any time." He did n.ii
ston it be ause lie could not. Oh.
there is i point in inebriation beyond
' . - . . . ft
which, it' a ra in goes, he cannot stop!
THE TERRIBLE CRAVE FOR DRINK.
One of these victims said to a Chris
tian man, "Sir, if I were told that I
couldn't get a drink until to-morrow
night unless I had all my fingers cut
off, I would say, 'Bring the hatchet
and cut them off.' M have a dear
friend in Philadelphia, whose nephew
came to him one day, and when he was
exhorted about his evil habit, said,
"Uncle, I can't give it up. - If there
stood a cannon, and it was loaded, and
a glass of wine sat on the mouth of
that caution, and I knew that yo.i
would fire it oft just as I came up and
took the glass, 1 would start, for I
must have it." Oh, it is a sad thing
for a man to wake up in his life and
feel that he is a captive. He snys: "I
could have got rid of this once, but
1 can't now. I might have iiyed an
honorable life and died a Christian
death; but there is no hope for me now;
there is no escape for me. Dead, but
not buried. I am a walking corpse.
I am an apparation of what I once was.
I am a caged immortal, beating against
the wires of my cage in this direction
and in that direction, beatiug against
the cage until there i blood on the
wires aud blood upon my Soul, yet not
able to get out. Destroyed, without
remedy !" m
I go further and say that the inebri
ate suffers from the loss of his useful
ness. Do you not recognize the fact
that many of those who are now cap-
tive of strong drink only a little while
ago were foremost iu the churches and
v Tn .wnii

niH Know iu.it aoiiiemuwa "
that they prayed in public, and some
of them carried around the holy wine
on sjtcremental davs? Oh, ves, they
stood in the very front rank, out they
gradually fell away. And now what
do you suppose in the feeling of such a
man as that, when he thinks of his uis
honored vows and the dishonored sac
rament when he thinks of what he
might hare been and of what he is
now? Do such men laugh and seem
very merry? Ah, there is, down in
the depths of their soul, a very heavy
weight. Do not wonder that thev
j sometimes see strange things, and-uct

were thousauds of tKonle that turned
back from that ulcerous ske.ch swear

that could intoxicate.
God only knows what the diundard
suffers. Pain filed on every nerve
and travels every muscle, and gnaws
every bone, and burns with every
flame, and stings with every poison,
and pulls at. him with every torture.
Wiiat reptiles crawl over his creeping
limbs: What hends stand by his mid
; night pillow! What groans tear his
ear! "What horrors shiver through
his soul! Talk of the rack, talk of
the lnquistion, talk of the funeral
pyre, talk of the crushing Juggernaut
he feels them all at once. Have
you ever been in the ward of the hos
pital where these inebriates .re dying,
the stench of their wounds driving
back the attendants, their voices
sounding through the night? The
keeper coms up and says, "Hush,
; now be still. Ston making all this

i a moment, for as soon as the keep-

shriek, and they rave, and they pluck

groan, and they shriek, and they blas

kill them. "Stab me, smother me,

J Oh, it is no fancy sketch. That thing
is oing on in hospitals, aye, it is go

of every neighborhood on this conti
nent. It went on last night while
you slept, and I tell you further that
this is going to be the death that some
of vou will die. I know it. I see it
coming.
HIS HOME IS RUINED.
Again: the inebriate suffers through
. a V
the loss ot lus home. 1 do not care
how much he loves his wife aud chil
dren, if this passion for strong driuk
has mastered him. he will do the most
outrageous things, and if he could
not get drink iu anv other way he
would sell his family into eterna
bondage. How many homes have
been broken up in that way. no one
but God knows.
Oh. is there anything that will so
. destroy a man for life and damn him

that strung drink. With all the con
centrated energies of my soul," I hate
it. Do vou tell me that a man can be
happy when he knows that he is break
ing his wiie's heart and clothing his
children with rags? Why they are
on the streets of our cities to-day little
children, barefooted, uncombed and
unkept, want on every ptth on their
faded dress and on every wrinkle of
their prematurely old couutennnc,
who woull have been iu churches to
dav, and as well chid as yo i are, but
for the fact that rum destroyed their
parents and drove them into the grave.
Oil, rum! thou foe of God, thou de
spoiler of homes, thou recruiting officer
of the pit, I abhor thee:
WORST OF ALL, HIS SOUL IS LOST.
But my subject takes a deeper tone
and that is, that the inebriate is a suffer
er, from the loss of the soul. The Bible
intimates that ii. the future-world, if
we are unforgiven here, our bad pas
sions are appetites, unrestrained, will
go along with us and make our tor
ment there. So that I suppose when
an inebriate wakes up in this lost world
he will feel an infinite thirst clawing
on him. Now, down iu the world,
although he may have been very poor,
he could beg or he could steal five
cents with which to get that which
would slake his thirst for a little
while; but in eternity, where is the
rum t ) c me from? " Dives could not

for water. The i.hriate cries for
rum. Oh, the deep exhausting, exas
perating, ever lasting thirst of the
drunkard in hell. Why, if a fiend
came up to earth for some inferm-l
work in grog shop, and should go
back taking on its wink just one drop
of that for which the inebriate in the
lost world longs, what excitement
would it make there. Put t hat one drop
from off the fiend's wing on the tip
of the ton gne of the destroyed inebri
ate, let the liquid brightness just touch
it, let the drop he very small if it only
have iu it the smack of alcoholic drink,
let that drop just touch the lost iner
briate in the lost world, and he would
spring t his feet ar.d cry: "That is
rum! alia! thai i rum!" and it would
wake up the echoes of the damned:
Give me rum! Give me rum! Give
me rum! In the future world, I do
not belive that it will be the Hbsence
of God that will make the drunkard's
sorrow; I do not believe that it will be
the the absence of the holiness; t think
it will be the absence of strong drink.
Oh! "look not upon the wine when it
is red, when it moveth itself aright in
the cup, for at the hist, it biteth like a
serpent and stingeth like an-ndder." ,
A WORD TO THE VICTIMS.
But I want iu conclusion to say one
thing personal, for I do not like a
sermon that has no personalities in it.
Perhaps this has not had that fault
already. want to say to those who
are the victims of strong drink, that
while I declaie that there was a point
beyond which a man could not stop, I
want to tell you that while a man can
not stop in his own strength, the Lord
God, by his grace can help him to stop
at any time. Years ago I was in u
room in New York where there were
many men who had been reclaimed
from drunkenness. I heard their tes
timony, and for the first time in my
life there flashed out a truth I never
understood. They said: "We were
victims of strong drink. We tried to
give it up, but always failed; but
somehow since we gave our hearts to
Christ, he has taken care of us." 1
believe that the time will soon come
when the grace of God will show its
power here not only to save man's soul.
but his body, and reconstruct, purify.
elevate and redeem it. I verily believe
thai, although yon ' feeV grappling" ii!
the roots of your tongues an alniosi
omnipotent thirst, if you will this
moment give your heart to God he wib
help vou, by his grace, to conquer.
Try it. It is your last chance. 1
have looked off upon the desolation
Sitting under my ministry there art
people in awful peril from strong
drink, and judging from ordin iry cir
cumstances, there is not one chance in
five thousand that they wi 1 get cleai
of it. I see men in this congregation
of whom I must make the remark that,
it they do not change their course,
within teu years they will,7is to their
bodies, lie down iu drunkards graves;
aud as to their souls, lie down in j
drunkard's perdition. I know that it
is an awful thing to say, but I canno
help saying it. Oh, beware Yoi
have not vet been captured. Beware!
As ye open the door ofyourwiueclo.se

"Beware!" When the books of judg
ment are open, and ten million drunk
ards come up to get their doom, I want
you to bear witness that I to-day, in
the fear of God, and in the love foi
your soul, told you with all affection,
and with all kiukness, to beware of
that which has already exerted its in
fluence upon your family, blowing oti
i
some of its lights a premonition of
the blackness of darkness forever
Oh, if you could only hear this mo
mnt. Intemperance, with drunkard
bones, drumming on the lieu I of the
wine cask the De id March of immor
tal souls, methink the very glance of
a wine cup would make you kIi udder,
and the color of the liquor would make
you think of the blood of the soul, and
the fo im on the top of the cup would
remind yo.i of the froth ou the man
iac's lip, and yon would go home from
this service and kneel down and pray
Go l, th it rather than your children
should become ciptir of this, evil
habit, vou would like to canr them
out some bright pritig day to the ceiu-
eterv and put them away to the last
sleep, until at the call of the soutl
wind the flowers would come up all
over the grave sweet prophecies of
the resurrection. G d has a balm for
such a wound; but what flower of com
fort ever grew on the blasted heath of

a drunkard's supulcher?
The Durham Sun puts it pungently
when he says, "One of the heaviest
things on earth is a sheet of paper
after it has been transformed into a
farm mortgage. It always takes a
strong man and his family several
years to lift it, and often it cau't be
lifted at all."
"There in no ditTerence what ever be

wanting the spoils?'. "IJut dont you

Progress of ths South.
It is fairly astonishing what prtH
gress has been made in the South in
the building of factories of machine
shops of all kinds since the war. But
not to go beyoniTthe ceimis rejiorts of
1880, a comparison with lliee existing
evideucesof progress, reveal's tm "ns-
tonishiug increase. The Manufactu
rers' Record makes tf business of bunt
ing up aud publishing all tUe iacts n-
lating to the march of progress in the
South, giving nauivs of 'rotis firnm
and companies, where locmh'd- and
wluU they have dont v hat they have
got and what they re doing mid pro
pose to do. The Record of the 10th
instant has an exhaustive article on
"The Souths Cotton Mill" the

of spindles and looms in each factory.

These figures show that the uutnber
of hulls now iu the South as compared
witnt ioaj nas uouuieu, WHiie tt
numper of spindles and looms h as mow
than trebled, the tendency &riJC to
build mills of greater capacity than
formerly. From 101 mills, having
607,8r4 spindles and 14,H21 loom in
1880 this industry has uu-reased uqtM
there are now 355 mills with 2,035,208
spindles and 45,001 looms in the Sout h.
As remarkableis is this increase, these
Hgnres really do not fully represent the
leVelopment of this business, for they
lo not include the spindles and looms
of many new mills" now under con
struction, and others upon which work
will shortly begin. Many of these
mills are mentioned in this list, and in
some cases the number of pro)wsed
spindles is silso given, but neither the.
nills nor spindles are included in the
totals, except in a few cases, aud these
ire mostly where tKe mills are nearly
ready to go into operation, or soon will
rie. A very low estimate for the in
crease itt the uumler f "spindles to go
.nto the mills now building and Jhoe
projected, and into old mills, during the
lext twelve or fifteen month won w -be
300,000. during itlw? last twelve a
greater numljer than this were put. in.
but there were special conditions, such
is the doubling ut the capacity of
ibout a dozen of the largest mills in
the South, and unusual activity in
building mills, due to fine profits in
the business. At present not so many
large mrlU are preparing' t increase
their capacity, though quit a number
ire doing so, and there is a temniry
lepressioii, due to the overprtKiuction
if coarse good, that wiRfor a while
iessen the activity in mill building.
in fact, this industry has reached a
point where a change tn the-ch Tacter
f goods produced must lie made, and
this, jn all probability, will necessitate
a slciwer growth for the next twilrn
months.
