ONCE A HAPPY HOME. A clergyman in Boston introduced the following incident, with great effect, into his sermon on Fast day. A fact like this is one of the strongest of arguments In a neighboring State, during a contest in a little town as to whether license diould be granted, there ^peared in the town hall, just before the opening of the polls, a woman thinly clad, with sorrow written on eveiy lineament of her sad fece. The multitude had assembled, when she rose to speak. She said: **Gentlemen, you are about to vote in &vor of license. Once I had a happy home. My husband loved me, and three boys were bom to us who grew to manhood. In an evil day a tavern was licensed in our midst My husband frequented it and acquired the habit of in d u in g in intoxicating drinks. Liquor was plaoed upon the table, and die boys learned to love i t The house on the hni was ours. The cribs were stored with com, the grahery with wheat, the cel- ^ withmeats, the y i ^ was foil of cattle, and the horses crowded the stables. Butin time the effect of intoxication b^;an to ap pear—tiirift took its departure, and reverse followed reverse. One after another of my boys went down to a drankard’s grave, and «tlast my husband followed them, after haying mortgaged the properly, and left his wife an eacumbmce on the town. All this was the effect of license. In the name, not of myselll but of wives now as happy as I was once, I beg of you to refuse your vote for license.” Theeflfect was inlescribable, andprohiU-tion is stiU enforced in the town. O n D bop a t a T m .—^Have you ever noticed how anidcle is formed? You noticed how it froze, «ne drop at a time, until it was a foot long.'or more.

THE LAWYER AND THE IRISHMAN. While a number of lavryers and gentle men were dining at Wiscassett, a few days stoce, a jolly sod from the Emerald Isle appeared and called for dinner. The landlord told him he shodd dine when the gentlemen were done. “Let him, crowd among us,” whispered a limp of the law, “and we wiU have some fun with him.” The Irishman took his seat at the table. “Yon was bom to this country, were you, my friend ?” ‘^ o , sir, I was bom to Ireland.” “Is your father Uvtog ?” “No, sir, he is dead.’^ “What is your occupatiion ? “Ahorse jockey, sir.” “What was your fother’s occupation t ” “Tradtog horses, sir.” *‘IMd your father cheat any person while he was here?” “I suppose he did cheat many, sir.” “Where do yon suppose he went to ?” ^‘To heaven, sir.” “And whiat do you s’posehe isdotog to heaven?” . „ “Has he cheat^ any one there ?” “He cheated one, I believe, d r.” “Why did they not prosccute him ?” “Because, they searched the whole ktog. d03i of heaven and coddn’t find a lawyer.
