The men Interested In gambling houses und in Jocky clube wield such inlluence by their numbers and affluence that the Judge, the Jury and the police ofllcers must be bold ln- .deed who would array themselves against these Infamous establishments. The House of Commons of England actually ndjourns on Derby day thai members may attend the races, and ln the best circles of society In this coun try to-day are many hundreds of pro fessedly respectable men who are ac Jtnow ledged gamblers. Hundreds of thousands of dollars In t)hls land are every day being won and lost through gambling. Says a trav- last letter you will ever receive from me.

The old father came to the postof fice, got the letter and fell to the floor. They thought he was dead at first, but they brushed back the emlte hair from his brow and fanned hlm. He had only fainted. "Aceldama, the field of blood!" When things go wrong at a gaming table, they1 about: "Foul! Foul!" Ovet all the gamine tables of the world I .a t i wk. wt 'T havA trav : time upon th,' cry out: "Foul. Foul! Infinitely foul!" The church ot God hu not me vilUng to altow the world to hare all h advantage of these game of hance. A church basar opens, and oward the close it is found that some it the more valuable article are unsal able. Forthtrlth the tonductom of the enterprise conclude that they will raf 1e for some oi the valuable articles, and under the pretense of anxiety to make their minister a present or please .me pcpular member of the church fascinating persons are dispatched through the room, pencil In hand, te "solicit shares," or perhaps each draws for his own advantage, and scores of people go home with their .trophies, thinking that it is all right, for Chris tian ladies did the embroidery and Christian men did the raffling, and the proceeds went toward a new commun ion set. But you may depend on it that as far as morality Iscbncemedyou might as well have won the crack of the billard ball or the turn of the dice box. Do you wonder that churches built, lighted or upholstered by such processes as that come to great finan cial and spiritual decrepitude? The devil says, "I helped to build that house of worship, and I have as much right there as you have," and for once the devil ia right. We do not read that they had a lottery" for building the church at Corinth or at Antlot-h or for getting up an embroidered surplice for St. Paul. All this I style ecclesiastical gambling. More than one man who Is destroyed can say that his first step on the wrojig road was when he won something at a church fair. The gambling spirit has not stopped for any indecency. There transpired In Maryland a lattery in which people drew for lots in a burying ground. The modern habit of betting about every thing is productive of immense mis chief. The most foealthful and Inno cent amusements of yachting and base ball playing have been the occasion of putting up excited aid extravagant wagers. That which to many has been advantageous to body and mind has been to others the means of financial and mora loss. The custom is pernic ious in the extreme where scores of men in respectable life give themselvee up to betting, now on this boat, now on that; now on this ball club, now on that. Kettlng that once was chiefly the accompaniment of the race course is fast becoming a national habit, and In some circles any opinion advanced on finance or politics Is accceted with the interrogation, "How much will you bet on that, sir?" This custom may make no appeal to slow, lethargic temperaments, but there are In the country tens of thou sands of quick, nervous, sanguine, ex citable temperaments, ready to be act ed upon, and their feet will soon take hold on death. For some months and perhaps for year they will linger in the more polite and elegant circle of gamesters, but after awhile their path way will come to the fatal plunge. Shall Isketch the history of the gam bler? Lured by bad company,, he finds his way into a place where honest men ought never to go. He sits down to his first game, but only for pastime and the desire of being thought sociable. The players deal out the cards. They unconsciously play Into Satan's hands, who takes all the tricks and both the players' souls for trumps, he being a sharper at any game. A slight stake Is put up, Just to add Interest to the play, (lame after game is played. Larger stakes and still larger. They be ;;in to move nervously on their chairs. Their brows lower and eyes Mash, until now they who win and they who lose, I're.l alike with passion, sit with set ; n and compressed lips, and clinched ;:.'!;;. and eyes like fireballs that seem s. i::ing from their sockets, to see the "i... i turn before it comes. If losing, i. I- with envy and tremulous with un i; .i red oaths cast back redhot upon the heart, or winning, with hysteric !;.n: h "Ha. ha! I have It!" A few years have passed, and he Is n:'y the wreck of a man. Seating him si if at the game ere he throws the first e,;: :. he stakes the last relic of his . .: -- the marriage ring which sealed the solemn vows between them. The :.i.' is lost, and, staggering back In ...iu.stlon he dreams. The bright loi rs of the past mock his agony, and oi li:s dreams fiends wJth eyes of fire .in 1 tongues of flame circle about him w.i'.i Joined hands, to dance and sing !l - orgies with hellish chorus, chant icg "Hall brother!" kissing his clam- :i forehead, until their loathsome e k.-i. flowing with serpents, crawl Into V. bosom and sink rhsir sharp fangs t.i.l suck up his life b'.ood and, coiling around his heart, pinch il with chills .:rd shudders unutterable. Take warning! Tou are no stronger il.-'n tens of thousauds who have by th.s practice been overthrown. No yoaTig man in our cities can escape be iri, tempted, lleware of the first be eiiir.'ngs! This road Is a down grade, ,r.!u every . instant Increases the mo mif.ium, Launch not upon this treach .n;s s.?a. Splint hulks strew the beach. !:vi wasting storms howl up and down, tosMing unwary craft Into the Hell Gale. I speak of what I have seen wir.h my own eyes. To a gambler's deathbed there comes no hope. He will probably die alone. His former asso ciates come not nigh Ms dwelling. When the hour comes, hia miserable soul will go out of a miserable life Into a miserable eternity. As his poor remains pass the house where he was ruined old companions may look out for a moment and say, "There goes the old carcass dead at last," but they will not get up from the table. Let him down Into his grave. Plant no tree to cast its shade there, for the long, deep, eternal gloom that settles there ' Is shadow enough. Plant no forgetmenots or eglantines around the spot, for flow era were not made to trow on such a blasted heath. Visit it -not In the sun shine, for that would be mockery, but In the dismal night, when no stars were out and the spirit of darkness come down, horsed on the wind, then visit the grave of the gambler. -itural sound, them, telling hlm I won 1 made a Ihe washing until he 1 i wing, ue went at $4.98. ilBROSIOUS BROS.
