Gemperance.

SAKE room for the thousands on thou

sands returning From the lowly pathway of darkness! Our hearts with accents of kindness are

yearning;Unfurl your proud banner and wel

come them in!

From the isles of the ocean, the plains and

the dells, Thousands on thousands are watching the O'er cities and towns, o'er valleys and

stream; The fond mother's heart in gratitude swellsOh! say, shall we wake and find this a

dream?

mountains, May the flag of temperance o'er all be

unfurled! It bids you partake of the life-giving foun

tain, Those waters are flowing to gladden the

world!

Oh! still at our post we stand to deliver,
Till the light burns again on each deso-

late hearth, And the demon of whisky is vanquished for

ever, Whose breath like a plague has darkened

the earth!

Sign the Pledge

HERE is the man who would not shrink
From the bondage of strong drink?

CHORUS—Cheerily, readily, come along, Sign our pledge and sing our

song!

If you'll only make the start,
You will act the wiser part!

CHORUS

Where's the man his bottle tips?-
He's in danger who but sips!

CHORUS

Come, then, Charlie, Fred and Lew
The temperance cause is gaining, too!

CHORUS

Say to your friends, where ere they be,
Come and sign the pledge with me.

CHORUS

'Tis rum that makes me fierce and wild, 'Tis rum that robs my wife and child.

CHORUS—

It robs the pocket, racks the brain,
From the maddning drink I will refrain!

CHORUS

And when you make your New Year's call Just say you do not drink at all.

CHORUS

Say to the girls, where ere they be, “That very drink may ruin me!"
