Amp of. , companions How Cyrus Grey son avoided liquor. The merriest occasion the hottest Day or the coldest evening found him Over strictly temperate a cold water Man of the most rigid Type. And yet he made no Strong profession of Temperance and in his life there was every temptation to Mere pleasure seeking. Lie was wealthy a artist of no mean standing a favorite in society and would have been eminently handsome but for an expression of sadness that never left his dark eyes a Reserve that Hung Over his speech on All occasions. But that he loved that we had become like Brothers in five years of close Friendship i should have never Learned the secret of his sadness or the cause of his strict practical Temperance habits. I remember Well the morning when he came into studio quite Early to find lying on a lounge nursing a splitting headache instead of finishing the picture upon nasal. It was hut Seldom i allowed Good company or great occasion to Lead into drinking hut headache that Day was most certainly to he attributed to a Frise flow of Champagne on the previous evening and Cyrus knew it. Lie made no comment passed about the room a Little and then sitting near to said in a voice that to proved that he had nerved himself to some great Effort old fellow Lam Ngo lug to make you father confessor to Tell Yon the Story of life. His face was so deadly Pale and his whole appearance so shocked that i cried if it troubles you to Tell it by mind that. I want to Tell it. You will respect secret will i know. 1 was a boy of five years old i think when father suddenly disappeared from our Homo. I cannot Tell you what his business had been i never knew but we had always lived in Comfort and vague memory of father Only recalls kindness and love for Mother and myself the Only child. Lie had left us Iny Mother Sank into a most despairing sorrow weeping convulsively at All times often praying fervently wasting away to a Mere Shea Oil of herself. She Lasabre sad tit Tutu Styf y to forget old life old nurse and something i her White face and hushed awed sift Mission. Are Ray childish impressions of sorrow soon forgotten in Happy life. For in spite of the unalterable sadness of grandmother s face i was very Happy. Home was very Ponsant with every Comfort wealth could give and i was allowed All childlike indulgences while restraints were Only judicious and to breathe by ones. I went to Good schools and when i wished to lean artist every advantage of study and travel was Given to till at Twenty one i was legally put into Possession of father s property and Learned Here Cyrus paused great Heads of perspiration standing on his face but after a Rno Mentar struggle he said night before i became of age will some of friends were in studio and we sent for Champagne to celebrate birthday. 1 had years before promised grandmother never to touch liquor but carried away by companion s urging and example i took of that nigh tiny first Glass. Before Tho party broke up i was in a state of intoxication. I had a dim recollection of grandmother s cry of horror As i reeled up stairs after friends left and own Pang of shame As i heard it but i slept heavily and awoke late the next Day. Expected a reproof Ami lecture when 1 went to grandmother s room but she did not speak one word referring to condition the previous night. She said sadly before you go to the lawyer s i wish you to read some papers i have Here. Newspapers they were tinted sixteen years before and the columns in tended for Reading were heavily marked in Pencil. 5iy grandmother left alone and i read All she Hail marked. It was the history of a murder committed in the heat of passion and while the murderer was under Tho effect of Strong drink. To was described As a handsome Man under thirty years of age of Talent and Promise and not Adt Litcey to liquor. At sonic festive gathering he had been led into intoxication and while crazy with Iri Yak had involved in a quarrel striking his opponent wit i a poker and killing him instantly. Road every word of the Long trial where the Best Talent of the country defended the criminal where Money was freely spent and every Elt Ort made to save the guilty Man. 1 read the appeals to the governor for Pardon after lie was convicted and sentenced praying for pity in consideration of his youth his previous Good conduct his position and his family. I read his own letter pleading his bewildered brain at the time he struck the fatal blow and the entire absence of any intent to kill the Man who had been an utter stranger to him two hours before he Lay dead at his feet. I read the governor s refusal of the prayers and petitions of some of the most info rental men in the country. I came to Tho prison scenes the last Day Sand hours of the condemned Man. 1 read every word of the harrowing accounts of the parting friends and family the sickening details of the execution and closing scenes of the funeral. In the last paper there was simply the notice of the death of the murderer s wife a few weeks later. grandmother returned to she said in a Low pleasing voice Yon see How drink brings Strong men to the and she shuddered turning White As ashes. Tried to Brave it out is an exceptional i said. I am a gentleman grandmother and cannot Lead to murder. It is a beastly habit i own but it need never become habitual. A Glass now and then will Hurt no one. Put a shaking hand on the papers. Have heard that argument from this Man whose trial you have just read who gave up on the Gallows a life. That might be Noble and useful because in his youth he would not give up the occasional Glass of Good Leulf ship and sociability knew him i cried astonished i knew him Well. I have pleaded with him As 1 plead with and Here to horror she Knelt at feet to entreat him to leave untouched and untested the fatal Glass that leads to crime. Of Cyrus not read this Story with careless heart not turn from prayers and tears raised her up and held her tenderly in arms. You take state last Iii lit too much to i said. I shall never become a drunkard and really grandma it is not very flattering to suppose i shall become a murderer and die by and i laughed aloud in in about another Quarter of an hour we were Board a Bear Hunt in which a new yorker a of Trotter and two took hand.
