Extravaancu is tho rock on which
society Is going to pieces. Let us face
the danger before it Is too lato to avert
it. Singlo people shrink from inarrlago
because they see married peoplo are liv
ing In a perpetual whirl of bills and
competition and social hypocrisy. Au
nlr of common deception hangs around
all our houses. Wo aro afraid to bo
poor. On ono thousand a year, how
shall wo keep np tha appearance of
three thousand ? That Is tho standing
social problem. In such a case, luxury
In the parlor necessitates meanness
somewhere elso. Our lace curtains tell
dreadful lies. Let us havo a reform
aud come down to a specie basis. The
well-to-do people ornament their houses
with mortgages. Tho poor run bills.
High pressure marks all life from the
cottago to the mansion, and In threo di
rections It Is ruinous.
It Is financial ruin.
Any man who puts a dollar Into ap
pearances is on the way to sink a for
tune In tho samo miry slough. Living
costs about twlco what It ought, fully
twice In America what It does In Eu
rope. Thero Is no reason for It. This
Is a land of grain and fruits, and abund
ant work. The man who spends two
thousand a year could llvo on onn thou,
sand and be happier. Perhaps not iu
deed by himself. Tho social level needs
to sink from extravaganco to thrifty
economy. It this Is tho way out of
natloual trouble, It Is doubly tho way
outot family worries. Bo bravo enough
to decline appearances. Bo honest
straight through your domcstto arrange
ments, though tbe two-story must yield
to the cottago, and thepuddlug to corn
meal. It Is mental ruin.
The money that Is spent ' on horses
and dress and table unnccessarles would

It Is moral ruin.
Peoplo cannot systematically decelvo
without moral penality ovon though tho
lies aro velvet nnd silken. Tho penalty
comes in the los3 of sqlf-rcspcct. Tho
man who mortgages his property to
keep up tho family stylo thereby mort
gages his namo to tho devil. Instead
of studying moral philosophy to find
tho causes of general social disorder
loosening of home bonds and lowering
of purity let us come down to aji hon

Far in tho depth of tho northern for
est of British America there lived an old
hunter, with his wifo and two children.
Ho usually visited tho settlement threo
t or four times during tho year, when ho
exchanged his furs for such things as no
might need till his next visit.
It was during one of those long, cold
Winters, when'all kinds of games bo
come very scarce, that tho hunter dis
covered hn had not sufficient food to
last his family through the dreary Win
ter. Morning alter morning ho strap
ped on his snow shoes nnd went out In
the dark swamps and woodlands In
search of game; only to return nt night
empty-handed, discouraged, and heart
sick. At length, about tho last particle
of food In the cabinet had been eaten,
nnd tho hunter determined to visit a
brother hunter, who lived n number of
miles distant, to endeavor to get some
food to last them until hccouldkill somo
gamo. But nil ho could procuro was a
few turnips, which ho placed in Ills
knapsack, and commenced his Journey
back to his cabin. The snow was fall
ing at a fearful rate, and the wind sigh
ed and moaned through tho forest, as if
warning every'oneaway from their soli'
tary wilds. Still tho hunter kept on his
lonely way until the dark shades of
night began to settle arouud him.
Weary and hungry lie resk'd for a short
time, and taklug ono of tho turnips,
which had been frozen as bard as ieo
glnco ho commenced his journey, htrcut
it in small pieces and ate It. Ho rested
but a short time however, when ho re
sumed his Journey, and thought it was
so dark, ho could no longer see tho
marks upon the trees which guided hi
course he consturcted a torch, by tho
light of which ho was ablo to continue
on his way. It was some tlmo after
midnight when ho arrived at his cabin.
His wife, though nearly starved, soon
prepared a meal from tho frozen tur
nips. Tho hunter, being entirely cx
haustcd, lay down upon a couch of deer
skins, but eooh complained of being
sick. lie grow rapidly worse and died
before morning. The wife knew not
what to do, but succeeded In gathering
enough fuel to keep the fire burning a
short time. A day and a night of their
fearful suffering passed. The last
mouthful of food had been devoured. A
few rats crept from tho holes In the
cabin and began to feed upon tho body
of the hunter, which had not been re
moved from tho placo In which he died,
somo of these the family were able to
kill, which they eagerly devoured. Even
tho deer-skins, which were used for
bedding, vrcro cut in pieces and partly
eaten up. Tho wife being no longer
able to procuro fuel for k the fire, lay
down upon tho floor by her children to
await death to rollevo them of their suf
fering. The hunter of whom they had receiv
ed some assistance, thinking of tho des
titute circumstances In which thoy might
bo, visited them, when he found them
In this sufleilng condition. Tho mother
and ono child weie yet alive, but tho
younger child was drad and frozen. Tho
hunter, after providing them with suf-'
flclent food and fuel for it number of
days, started to tho settlement, and af
ter n few day's absenco ho returned
with a party of n dozen men, who plac
ed the womau and child upon, a litter,
and after a weary Journey through thb
wilderness, leached tho settlement,

It appeared tho hunter, who had died,
was very fond of strong drink; and du

instead of procuring a sufficient stock
of Winter provisions, exchanged his fur
for liquor, and was not ablo to visit tho
settlement again. Witness.
