T does not stand to reason that -a" strident in intercollegiate ath letics, can 5o as much-' -work as onq -who devotes all his Mime to study. The athletic season of football, -fos example, last six weeks in the fall, and so far as classroom work is concerned, the time is practically thrown away. The members of the team attend lectures ' regularly.;' they are obliged tor hut their minds are xm, signals and plays for -the next game or practice. . As a consequence one-fifth of the year is lost, and the players hare to do as much wort in the remaining four ths as others do in the'five-flfths. With average stuaenrs it -win not he done. e physical training which the football men have gone tnougn cannot? under orable circumstances increase their efficiency enough to make good the dif- ence. Then, as a rule, their participation in athletics has made them natural rtprs in the social life of the college, and so they lose still more time. .The ty point that 'may be regarded as established by the records, is that few j SJ.J..J j. i.u faoii-ia (irn cilhcfririvnflTr .flvrATtrn nfi 3.

" ucatioii 1 Dy By Hamilton WrightMable the Way, EXRY WARD BEECHER was once asked how he had ac quired the knowledge of the processes' of .all kinds which en abled him j to .draw so freely on the whole range of devices, methods, and machines used in manufacturing of every vari ety. He replied that, whenever he found himself in the neigh borhood of a factory and had a little time to spare, he made it a practice to go through the establishment, ask questions, and try to: understand everything he saw. In this way, with out any special exertion, simply by using his eyes, his mind, and his time, he had cometo know a great deal about many Is of manufacturing, and this knowledge supplied him with a great fund of iphors and illustrations, often of a very striking character. In like man wlienever he was thrown with anyone of a different occupation, he made point to induce his companion to talk about his work, his habits, his skill. great preacher went out of his way to secure a bos seat on a stagecoach, rder that he might talk Jwith the driver, watch his ways, learn his language get his point of view. : If he was to make a journey on a steamboat, he fed permission to go into the pilot house, and drew the pilot into talk about png boats, and iif e on the river or lake. In this way he came to have-a very ie knowledge of men, of their different points of view, their various skills, the things for which they Cared most. He took the attitude of a learner, was able to pour out such a flood of thought because he cpntinually ed to his own store of knowledge. Success. ' ? ' W A RNIING AG AJ N St Wl N E Solomon never said a. truer word than what he says about those who tary long at the wine. The questions asked by him, "Who hath woe? Who. hajth sorrow? Who hath contentions? Who hath babbling? Who hath wounds without cause? Who hath redness of fyes?" are not only answered by Solo mon himself, but we find his answers verified every day that we look into the news of the daily papers; while around us, on every side, in the street, wo may see living witnesses to the trith of what Solomon says. ' , Many whom I meet, who have be come slaves to strong drink, say: "Oh, that I had never commenced to drink; but now i have no power; and drink is stronger than my own will; stronger than my love for my wife and chil dren; stronger ven than my wish for heaven." May the dear children be kept from ever touching wine, or any drink that will intoxicate so that they will be in good fellows" who ".take their little drinks as a regular thing: More interesting and remarkable, plerhaps, than any other disclosures made by Dr. Dana are those relating tp the capacity of men for drink and the duration of life among Tiabitual in ebriates. On the latter point, the con clusions reached are that in serious cases the duration of life is about fif teen years the maximum being over forty years. In general, it is said that d drinking can rarely be carried fqr more than twenty years, and it .erally brings .the victim to grief ajt about the age of forty. Referring ti persons who drink most - heavily and frequently, it is said that it takes ten or fifteen years to bring on demen- a or insanity, during which time it coamcsi: an Ie it EFFECT OF PROHIBITION There is no community on the civ- iltaoirt clnhp where nrohibition of in- By Dr. George G.

The town mechanic, people are total abstainers. For fifty years it has been unlawful to sell or njanufacture intoxicating drinks in Maine. The prohibitory law closed down every brewery and distillery in J the state, and has prohibited the sale in spots.

Where tl ere is no demand for strong drinks tie law enforces itself Fifty years ago every country store in rural Maine sold rum in large quantities. if he works by the day, is ordinarily, as. here observed, always poor. If - he-becomes a master workman and a contractor he may accumulate some property, but not if he continues to work for others. ; ' But should iie place his family in the country, the case at once becomes different. A home is secured. The children are educated and take higher positions in life than the parents, and altogether the condition of the family is improved). Near small lis, from ten to twenty acres of land, with buildings, may be secured for jsame or less money than would purchase a very modest home in the town, I a lot large enough only for a house and a very small garden.

State has been a sleeping giant; it is now waking, and in its I waking moments, even, is attracting attention far and near. We can' say ndthing of the State commercially or industrially that more could not be said oft her edu cationally. I "Public education was iever. so popular as it is, commanding, as it does, the best thought and jenergiea of the best citizens. Your committee recommends that tbi3 convention at test its interest ia public education by calling upon the General Assembly, soon to convene, to make, such special appropriation to the public schools as may be necessaTy to insure ja four months term in each schooif district "The interest in denominational schools has kept pace with the grow ing interest in public education. In fact, the leaders- in denominational school work have all the tipe been numbered among the vanguafd of the forces battling for public education. If it is true that a denomination's life and usefulness are measured by its intelligence, the educational question is one that, should command Ithe pro foundest consideration. We f ijeqi: entiy hear it said that the Baptist? outlook in North Carolina was neverfbrighter than it is. The interest of the denomi nation in education has made! the out look what it- is. Take from fis Wake Forest College, the University at Ral eigh and the numerous denominational schools, together with Ihej private schools managsd b Baptiste, scat tered over the State, and you swill take from us our future as a denomina tion, j "We make the following quotation from the report of the committee on century fund at the last session of this body: The complete organization ot school work in the State will affect every fibre1 of our denominational life. On public days scores of men and baptist schools taught oy Baptist men boys were the worse for liquor, and-p w?i 7 eV?r aPusVyoiinl ?ePpie' no danger of the terrible consequences that followthose who "tarry long at the wine." r Remember, that those who are drunkards did , not intend tp become so; they only thought of drinking just a little; but the little kept increasing, and the love for drink kept growing stronger, until the eyes grew red, and the face grew: bloated, - and the step grew unsteady, until the one who might have heenf-a blessing to the world and a heTp'tS those around him has become a loathsome object and a terror to his friends. It is not safe to take even a little strong drink, be cause the love Jfor it soon becomes a strong and cruel master. War is terrible, and many of our--f best men have gone to their graves through war; but strong drink has carried more victims to the grave in America than has war. Again I beg of the young to touch not and taste not any strong drink. D. L. Moody. THE COCKTAIL ROUTE Here is a warning for some of the may be estimated that each inebriate consumes about two thousand gallons of intoxicants. A man fifty-fivevyears bid confessed to Dr. Dana that he had been drunk twice a day for three years, making about two thousand in toxications; another man of forty had been drunk weekly for twenty years, and a third, aged forty-three, had been drunk a thousand times in fifteen years. Two thousand "drunks" is set down as the maximum limit of .any ordinary inebriate experience. Tae favorite combinations for hard drink ers was found to be beer and whisky, and beer alone came well up in the scale. Other beverages used by in ebriates .included cocca wine, Jamaica ginger, tincture of soap, and a- well- known proprietary "bitters." A re markable absence of alcoholism was found in wine drinkers. rum was used as a beverage by most of the people. They could not raise a barn" or a meeting t house without rum. Fifty years ago the sale of rum in this town (Chase's Mills), was free; now there is no sign of it or demand for it. Under the effect of the. pro hibitory law a generation has grown up without acqurring the drink habit. If we have any drinking men in this town they don't drink at home. Some men who have an appetite for strong drink move from the country to the city because it is not so much out pf character to get drunk in the city as in the country. Solon Chase.

' , J The employe who begins by practic ing sobriety during office hours is apt toj continue it after office hours. The after-dark jag is not conducive to easy labor the next day. Furthermore, the young man soon finds out that the pleasures of alcoholism are not up to tae advertisements. Seen, in the gieen light of the next day, they have curiously unreal and fantastic effect. The humors of the cup are very much like the magnificent visions one has in! dreams. They can't be remember ed the nextTday. Perhaps to the gen eral sense of disappointment are add ed a headache and a positive convic tion that one has swallowed a mule by mistake. Everything, therefore, conduces to sobriety in our day. The number of men who drink nothing at all is in creasing. The men who drink know how to carry, their liquor like gentle men, and they drink wine or beer or whisky very much as they drink their coffee or tea.' It is not "a "drink" to them in the ordinary sense of the; word; but a part of their daily allot ment of meat and liquid. IT PAYS TO BE SOBER Employes are learning everywhere that it pays to be sober. The steady fellow, who can always be. found, and when found is sober, is the ' man who wins out. There are -any number of vacations which can be filled only by sober men. No railroad in-the world would , think of intrusting a tifain to a drunken . engineer Druhk ards would not be tolerated on a police force, in the "postal service, or indeed, in any business affecting., the lilyes of people or requiring except tional judgment and care. Of course, there. are successful. men who drink; but, as a rule it will be found that they drink discreetly and never over step the bounds of moderation. Where they, drink to excess, they are but the exceptions that prove " the rule. The millionaire, , however, is" master of his time, and if he chooses to spend a part of it in riotous living he can afford whatever loss such a course entails.. He is in such a posi tion -- that , his business does not nec essarily suffer when he blots out a few. hour 'm the course of -time.
