From the Boston Globe. Another lesson, we trust, will be earued frqm this deplorable history nd deeply impressed on the public mind, ml that is the utter and unmitigated mischievousness of what are called " free ove doctrines." They seeui to have runed one cf the brightest and most promsing lives in this country. But tor tamering with them and giving way to heir insidious and damning influence, 'heodore Tilton niigbt, to-day have been ïappy in his family and in the beat of ociety, eminent and admired in literalure and prosperous in all worldly advantages and prospects. They have shipwrecked his moráis, his intellect, and his ïopes of a high place in the world's reard, and he will be left blighted and niserable, if not infamous.

When they take possession of the mind, all moral principie seems to eave it, and noone can have anything to do with those so possessed, or allow them o have anything whateyer to do witb lini, with safety to bis character and reputation.

Black kid boots and slippors can be restored to their original gloss by this method. " Papa, do you think Beech - ," " Hush, Johnnie." "But, papa, don't you think Beech - " " Didn't you hear me teil you to stop your noise, sir ? I won't have you talking about these things. Go in and get your face washed." And Johnnie, with tears in his eyes, wants to know why papa won't teil him whether becehnuta are ripe.
