The horrors of the drink traffic

No pencil is black enough to paint
the picture and doit full justice.
No tongue is eloquent enough to
tell the sad story iu all its dreadful
details. The use of alcoholic Lev-
erages.is of all scourges the most
wide and withering.
It is a physical curse: Blearing
the eyes, blistering the tongue, deranging the stomach, paralysing
the nesves, hardening the liver,
poisoning the blood, coagulating
the brain, inducing and aggravating many diseases, aud digging
many premature graves.
It is a financial curse:. Draining
the pocket, producing poverty,
diminishing comlort, multiplying
miseries, filling almshouses, increasing taxes and creating hard
It is a mental curse:- Clouding
the judgment and dethroning tbe
reason, promoting ignorance, prcn
ductng imbecility and transforming
its unhappy victims iuto maniacs
and fool s.
It is a moral curse: Weakening
the will, inflaming the passions,
hushing the voice of conscience and
preparing the way for, every vice
and crime. And yet. strange to
say, there are those who advocate
the removal ot.this.curse, by legalising it. But; the colossal ourse of
drunkenness- will oontinue so long
as drunkard factories are permitted,
protected and perpetuated by law.

Opposition to consent to an interim
supply bill amounting,to one quarter of the estimates. This was refused, and consent garen lor only
oue eighth. This has long since
been exhausted. Subsequently application was mark' ior a further

was refused. Had l.e r quest beer

The flrst iron ship has more reputed
tilrtbplueea then Homer, according to
Chambers' Journal. Both tbe Clyde
and the Mersey claim pre-eminence in
this respect. Sir E. J. Roblson of Edinburgh designed an iron vessel in 1810,
wbicb was not ktuncbed till three years
ialcr, nml it is said that nn Iron boat
was worked on the Severn even r.s fur
hack as 1787. Steel wiu* uot used iu th.
construction ��f uierehnnt ehlps' hulls
uutil 1859. Old Riflts were not alone in
their belief that wood wa�� meant by
rrovldeiiee to Boat, but iron to go xo
the bottom. A naval constructor of
.ouie repute ��uce said: "Don't talk to
uie of Iron ship*. They are contrary to
nature." Now none but small craft are
liuilt of wood in England.

i. ritnifc of the U'augs, or wild horses,
ot India, found no .r the land of Tibet,
iiiuH VV. Welier In "The Porosis of
Upper  iudin  and  Their  Inhabitants"
Hole for the first time wo saw the
k'nuig, or wild horso. Several herds
came to look at us us we marched and
galloped around, iieiglilng nntl kicking
up, but kept ut a lespeotful distance.
They huve big,' ugly heuds and tails
and ears like a mule's aud u black
stripe down the back; color, light buy,
with while noses. They have line free
uction in trot aud guliop and are fourteen to fifteen bauds high, strong in
the legs and heavy iu the body. We
were welcomed by tbe neighing of numerous wild horses in the land of thc
kiting. Several herds k^pt circling
round, the old stallions approaching in
a quite threatening manner, snorting,
squealing and kicking up their heels*
wliiie the mitres and fouls galloped otf
at a more respectful dls lance. There
was a herd of kiuugs which ciireered
about our camp in a moist objectionable way, making the nio'st fearful disturbances. We witnessed a battle royal between two stallions, which for
ferocity uud wicked fury surpassed any
tiglil 1 have seen. Again and again
the pair went at oue another like tigers, biting and kicking uud mauling,
the blood llowing freely, while the fearful yells und roars they kept up were
terrifying to hear. This went on for
hours. The horrible roars ami shriek-
iligs made by the wild horse when
lighting sound something like a noise
between a donkey's bray and the
sijiioalhig of a jtieUri!,. bnt far more ear
piercing and discordant. Here the
klang is found iu considerable numbers. He is, according lo the llunia
accounts, untamable, There was a
young one purchased at Bagesar fair
from some Huiilns for u small price.
The purchaser thought he had a good
bargain and proposed to send the animal to England, but wheu his men
went to bring away the purchase uo
power could induce it to leave Its foster mother, an old AUb. t pony, which
the clever IUltiins _._u..'d t-o sell except for an i .vorliilaut _v,:u.

The great violin nitikcm nil lived
within the compass of 150 years. They
chose their wood from a few went timbers felled in the south Tyrol and
floated down in rafts pine and maple,
sycamore, pear and itsh. They examined these to Und streaks and veins
and (rccUles, rnltitible s upc r.flckilly
when brought out by viu'iib-kin.tr.
They learned to tell the dynasty of
the pieces of wood by touching them.
They weighed them, they stwicfe (hen.
and listened to judge how fast or how
slow or how resonantly they would
vibrate in answer to strlngn. Sonic
portions of the (rood must he porous
and soft, w -lie close of liber, .lust thc

found, lt can be traced all Uirough the
Violins of some greal master and al'tei

The piece of wood was taken home
and seasoned, dried ia the hot Urescia
and Oreiuoua sun. The house of Striul-
Ivnrlus, the great master nf nil. is described as having been ns not as uu
oven. The wood was there soaked
through ar.d Uirough wilh sunshine.
In-this great beat tbe oils thinned and
Simmered slowly and penetrated far
iuto the wood until tlie varnish became
a part of the wood itself.
The old violin makers used to save
every bit of the wood when they found
what.they liked lo mend yi.d patch and
inlay with it. So vibrant and so resonant is the woml of good old violins
