WE LIKE KEELY'S WORK.
Ours is a weakness, if weak
ness it be as claimed by some, to
be an enthusiast for the Keeley

not surprised at Col. Osborne's
great interest in his work at the
institution in Greensboro when

hanging over them but now send
letters of joy to him over tho

Four hundred thousand is the
record of cures since the treat

It does not argue against the

the desu-j for liquor' irresistible.
It is theirs to choose whether

will never bo reclaimed from the
miserable bands which are crush

happiness and hurrying them on

how important it is that the aw

What strong drink is doing for
tho men from twenty to fifty
years of ags, the same, to a won
derful extent, the cigarette and
tobacco are doing for the boys
from twelve to twenty years of
age. The time has come for
teachers to cry aloud and sparo
not. I care not if our school
fund is increased some from
liquor license, the more's the
pity. I care not if tobacco men
give their thousands to colleges
and educational institutions, this
ought not and will not shut the
mouth of any true teacher
against these evils. Yea, what
shall it profil us if our public
school funds are increased and
our colleges are handsomely en
dowed,, if our boys and girls are
to be ruined!

thirteen knobs on the stick, and
on each of theso he carved one

This is a very valuable relic,
