There la a tlasx of men who ride on every train at the West, of their own sort, enterprising, and Jolly, and free In speech and manner. Among them are Rome of the smartest fellows, and for tlieni I predict fortune. They en counter peculiar dangers from their roving kind of life, and not tlio smallest of these la from tippling. It Is very easy to Imagine that the water is bad, or to feel "damp," or exposed to some disease, or that one Is very tired, and that a little whiskey will be good. I notice also that many young man "make n mock" of my feare. They are merry as crickets as they tell their drinking exploits. Many of thuni cany a well-filled flask. And thus they get very familiar with that which has des troyed multitudes. Two of these tt.cn met In our car. They were merry, andat last they went back to the water-tank to get water to mix with something else which they drank. And when they returned to their stat, either because I looked Ilka? one of their sort as I trust I do not or because they noticed my Interest in their movements, one of them asked mo "If I would not lake a little? It Is real good; tlio genuine article!" I thanked the young man for his offer, although my sense of duty strug gled with my politeness, and I felt that I ought rather to say "Get thee behind me, Satan!" But still I thanked him, and added "Let me pay you by telling ynuabtory." Now a story lu a tedious rido on n l abroad, even if it be In one of thn elegant Pan Handle's, la always wel come, and so they all listened as I began. 'Tlie fact is, gentleman," I said, "whilst thankful for your offer, I am afraid to accept it." "Well, I am not afraid," said the young man, as If a little hurt. "I was not speaking of you, but of myself, I replied. "The fact Is, I om afiald. Hut I was to tell you a story, not an original one, but one, In which that wonderful man, Father Hunt the temperance lecturer, was nn actor. "You may not know that on that sub ject it was not always wise for an op poer to attack him. He was sure to be a littlo singed in the conflict. "One day Mr. Hunt was making a hard assault on rum drinking in a neighborhood where a Dutch distiller named "Illlly Myers' was a sort of king. This man wai present and con tinually Interrupting tlio speaker by sajlug In a loud voice "Mr. Hunt, money makes the mare gol" .At first It raised a laugh, which Mr. Hunt took In good nature. 'At last he stopped for a personal colloquy with, his tor mentor, and said, 'Look here, Mr. Mjeri, you say money makes the mare go, and you mean that I lecture on tem perance for money, don't you?' 'Yes, that Is what I mean, Mr. Hunt.' Well, Mr. Myers, you carry on a distillery, ani you do It for money, don't you ?' Tj be sure I do, Mr. Hunt; money makes the mare go!' 'Aim so Mr, Meyers, you say I have a maro, and you have n mate also; suppose we trot them out together aud see how they comnarel' "Tlio meeting was in grore, and tlio slnirp lecturer knew a thing or two, and so the old distiller found out, fur Mr Hunt pointed to a young fellow who was quite drunk, aud was steadying himself by a tree, and said, ' Mr. Myers, who is that young fellow'." The distil ler started as If stung, ns lie answered, 'That is my ton.' 'Your son, is he, Mr. Myers? I guoss lie has been riding your tuaro and got throwd, hasn't he?' "'And who is that young fellow bit ting so drunk ou that log out there?' asked tho lecturer, pointing to a second one. "The distiller uttered an exclamation of real pain, as he said, 'That is my son, toot' 'He Is, Is lit?' said, 'Mr. Hunt, 'I guess he has been riding your mare nUo, and sho has kicked up and thrown him over her head, hasn't she? Your mare must be a vicious, dangerous brute, isn't she, Mr. Myers?'" '.The distiller cuuld not bland it any longer, but bald, 'Look here, Mr. Hunt, I wou't cay another woid If you villi let roe off!'" "And there Is ray story about Mr. Dill Myers and his mare. It may not teem w you, youug inert, w nave (ouch pouit, tut the fact l 1'baye noticed 'Bi -Myers' Maro' a great manv times. and I have seen a great many men as tearless as yon attempt to rido tho vici ous creature, and I have seen a great many of them thrown, and their necks broken. It may seem cowardly, but I am afraid to ildu her, and I most earn estly advUe you to net off whilst your neck h whole, for I feel sure sho will some day throw you. and perhapx kill you. I beg jou not to ride 11111 -Ifyers' mare!" Such was my story. It was not very iltllcate In Its IllUnitlun, but Is n man Ut stickle for I'iecne.ss of words when ho sees n lino young fellow lkllng down to perdition on such a jade? . My btory lilt the mark, nnd tlio young man to whom it was addressed was quite "cut down,'' and to "ease up the? matter," I asked him his business and found lie was agent for a glove manu factory, nnd foi Hi with lie opened his satchel and prcsVnted mo a pair of gloves, as he said: "As a slgn that my honest dealing was appreciated." Of course, I accepted them witli thanks, but added as parting admoni tion, "My young friend, tukethe. iidvl'.-u of it ctsii.il acquaintance whoe chief business is with young ni'iii, nnd dis mount us quick its possible from Bill Myers' mare!" Innocent AmiisuiucntN A friend was In t.lio City of.U , and' a near relative, who was a merchant, nvited hlin to dine with lilm nt a rest aurant. While waiting for their order to bn filled, our, friend's relative man ifested so much agitation nnd distress, as to lend to an inquiry Into tlio reason of It, whereupon his relative burst Ihto tears. I fear," said ho after, becoming self-possessed, "that Authur is utterly ruined. He lias a perfect passioit for gambling." I run surprised," answered our friend, "you will remember what I tuld you." "Yes; and you are jight, nnd I was wrong. But it la too lato now." This wealthy merchant was wont to play cards with ills children ln-tho par lor. Beginning with them when- qulto young, ho and his wife had spent many of tl.c long evenings In playing cards. Our friend had been tlieroand seen it, nnd had condemned the practice. Again and again he had warned tho Indulgent parents againsi nurturing a lovo tor card-playing In their sons, that might prove a snare, by and by, In tho placo of vicious resort. The parents only replied: "Just the way to keep .them out of such places. Provide them with am usements at home; aud they will not go nbroad for them. "Your Puritanic no tion would drive many n boy into mischief, Just to gratify n desire for In notent gamei which is not gratified at home." But a few years had elapsed, and Authur was twenty-one years of age, aud a gambler. The father had satis fied himself that It was even as a broth er merchant had told him. While the father did not belive that hU son was a guest at public gaming boards, this merchant assured him that It ,vas even so. Scarcely believing tliaflt was. pos sible, he. resolved lo ascertain; he had observed that Ids son left lilsdesk, whero he kept tho books of the store, about such a tjme each day, and was abcnt null our' or moie. He recalled, also, that ho had scat cely been at homo an evening of late, mid frequently was out until aften midnight. An apple girl came Into his office Just before the hour at which he had observed his sou to leave the store, and he called her attention to the young man at the desk.
