I don't say that Bill Smith was the lazy
ost man that ever lived, but he was desid
edly the lazyest ever J saw. And I will
venture to say, further, that his match could.
not be found in all Pepperelboro. There
was where he lived—there he . lives now.
Well, Bill was a toper--for that man
never existed who•wa too lazy to drink.—
Of course he was not olio of the real tear
down and drag out sort•; but . then he drank
hard, and was generally boozy toward Min
ing ; for he was too Jay to get drunk
very early in the day.
Ono evening, just about two plays and
three months ago, ho was very drunk.—
The night was cold, the wind blew fierce
ly, and the light snow swept wildly over
the ground, and added terror to the howl
'ings of old Boreas. That night, Bill was
full two miles from his own miserable hov
el, snugly enseonsed behind some old hoz:-
es and barrels, in one corner of a filthy
rum' shoo. How he can't) there, so far
from home, I do not know, but will guess,
that he happened on board some faiMer's
wagon or sleigh that passed his house„and
was too laiy to get out till the vehicle stop
ped at a little grocery. But at any rate,
Bill was there, two full miles from home ;
the night was wild, ' and the rum-seller
wanted to shut pp his groggery.
'Bill, you must clear out', said the rum
Bill made no intswer. . .
•'I say Bill, you • must clear 'out—go
Bill ,began to snore ; he wa'S sleepy, and
tired' to boot; hp always was.
'Hallo, Bill—l say, come, crawl out and
go home ; 'tis must nine, o'clock.' .
'Wait a while,' said Bill', 'don't be' in a
hurry—there's nothing gained .by hurry-
B t I must shut -up, Bill, and go home,
There's nothing doing here,,and can't ar
pr4 the ftre7wood: • -
Bill roused up a littl6:--not niuch, but a
little, and winked. Perhaps he would
have said something,, but just then the
door opened, and a•stranger , walked •in,—
He had rode a long distance, and'imeing a
light in the 'rummy,' had called to enqUire

There was quite 'a stir in 'Pepperelboro
the. next days A stranger 'had :come to
town, arid it was pretty•generally rumored
thtit he was to denier a temperance lecture
in the village school.bouse, Hero .and
there little groups were gathered together;
talking the matter over ; for it was indeed
something new , to have a. temperance lec
ture there; the Oldest inhabitant could not
remember the like of it. Bill's appetite
and an ~ i tehing to ascertain whoand what
the stranger was,urged him as far as the tav
ern,w here he arrived about noon. Of course
he made one of the group there, who talk
ed about the stranger and his business,
though precious little did he do towards
making up the conversation. '
'Are you going-to Pie the 'new Pledge,
Bill V asked an old covy, as he entered the
Bill didn't know exactly what answer to,
make, and"so, true to his nature, ho made
'How is it, uncle Simon,' continued the
smite voice, addressing •inother of the loun
gers, 'are you gout' to jine the Thomson
ans to-night ?—they say it's all the go,
down the city.' -
"rile Tilomsoniand said uncle Simon ;
don't know—they allow steaming it,l
Old Simon was the wit of the town,and
of course this sally produced a laugh.
'Not a devil a bit,' answered a square
rigged, bouble-breasted -.fellow, who had
stood in 4 corner of the room all the while.
l l've seen 'em and learn leeture-too ;
but they.dou't hold to stegmin' 'any way, as
I know ; nor they aint Thonvsoniaus
'What are they, '•
Sam .?'- asked uncle
'They are frissltirigtonians . said Sam,
and they don't hold to.-drinkin' a drop of
‘rljore folks,' added Simon, with em
phasis; and here was annther'laugh. .
The lecturer was tbere,and in good time
began his discourse. Be dwelt long on
the evil consequences of intemperance, and
among other things shawed that it.uniform
ly produced laziness—the worst kind of
laziness=eyen a disregard of duties, on
the. performance of which depend cleanli
ness, health, and happiness.
Bill heard the whole, and winked.' The
others heard, and looked knowingly at Bill.
Presently the Pledge went round, begin
ning with Uncle Simon,who was.the oldest
man and the biggest toper in the . hOuse.•

Bill ; 'l'm tired.'

Wednesday, and on Friday Bill did what
he had not done before for two years; he
worked ill day, mended itis windows, put
new shingles on his roof, hauled firewood

and Tuesday, were similarly spent; and
when the temperance meeting came,
,On ,
Tuesd evening, he brushed up his old
coat, jaok his wife by the arm, and trudged
silently to the old school-house;
The audience had got there before him,
for every one was anxious to hear what
Lazy Bill could say on . , the 'subject of tem
perancei Old Simon had seated himself
cloae to the desk, that ho might have the
better opportunity to play his pranks, and
exercise his powers of ridicule. But when
Smith entered, looking so changed, so no
ble, so dignified, comparatively, the old
man crept away abashed,-and' app'arentlY
astonished.: 'Can this be Lazy Bill 1' he
mentally asked; and the more Ito asked
the'question, the morelie was-puzzled to
Answer it. Soon Smith commenced,
• .''Ten years ago I Was' respectable, in ;
dustrious and happy. I - came into. this
neighhorhood,. bought me a few acres - of
land,. built me a small house, got married,
and went , to . .work,. We used to have so-•
cial parties in those tittles, atl i Ssrali there,
(pointing to his wife,) and used to attend
them. Sarah. learned to knit . ..edging and
tell stories, and I learned to drink wine.—
Very soon I began to -find myself occa
sionally impatient for the. timo,of the next
party to arrive ; and when it came, I was
equally impatient to seetbelvine go round.
Finally I drank to excess—even to in
toxication—at' ono •of these parties ; and
from that time, though for a while hearti
ly ashamed of my conduct, 1 had less. of
self-respect- and ..more of the "appetite for
liquor. I bejaii l to visit the tavern, and
the little rum shop down there at the oth,
er village, and with others of like inclina
tions ara appetites, I spent my time loung
ing about these groggeries—sitting now in
the sun, nqw,in the shade, .but never- en
gaged in any more .active business than
whittling a pine stick, or tipping a decan
ter of New England rum. I lost all my
ambition, by degrees—became lazy and in,
dolent, and you called me Lazy Bill, At
first my wife scolded and fretted at ley
changed conduct, but this only made it
worse. Then she cried and entreated ;:but
this had the same effect—producing 'trou
ble,' and I drank morn rum
~to drown it.—
Drunkards are sure to 'find trouble enough
when ruin has become its only antidote.—
I drank, lost the little property I Iliad ac
cumulated, broke the heart 'of my wife,
and finally became heedless of everything.
So I lived along till last Wednesday
night. You know ivhat we,,heard then,
and I need not say that I was convinced
that rum- had-. made me ' Lazy -Bill,' and
caused all my trouble. I then signed the
Pledge, and till now have kept it inviolate;.
and, God helping me, I will never drink
another drop of liquor as long as I live.=-•
Already I begin to feel the fires of ambft
tiorVagain in my breast, and to imagine
myself a man. My wife, there, is happi,
er, and looks healthier ; and my little boy
smiles sweetly when I take him in my

feelings and new hopes, and now I am go,

sign the Pledge if I would,_and as nothing
has befallen ma to discourage that resolu.
