Enactments have been passed, but only
phriially enforced, a,ad ut times not
enforced at all. 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. I humbly pray your forgiveness, j
It Is my dying prayer. Long before
you will have received this from mi

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

.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,

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.
