DULL YOUTHS WHO BECAME
Many of our mo,t7elebr,ted me.,, whose'
names are conspicuous in the world of liter
ature, were not renowned in tlftir youth for
any special mental brilliavy. Some of the
greatest dunces of the schoolroom, later on
in life, hoot out far ahead of their brilli.nt
mates nd eclipse them entirely. The '-dull
boys," who strive with all their might, long
and earnestly, to achieve success, frequently
bear awy the honors from the companions ;
who outshone them at an earlier dav-nri .'
develops mental and intellectual strength
that carries them on till great heights are ;
The celebrated and eloquent Dr. Chalmers i
was exceedingly dull and stupid at his
school task so ready for phy and preju
diced against study that h s master rew
ged and lost all patience with him.
denouncing him as an incorririb!

ih school, and propheaied that natbing
could be made of him under the most favor
It is related of Sir Isaac Newton that he
stood at the bottom of the lowest form but
one in school," though he afterward went to
work with strong determination to outrival
boy above him with whom he had foujrht.
and was o successful that he soon won the
bead place in Lis class, showing what con
tinued perseverance will do.
The famons and brilliant Sheridan showed
so little mental brilliancy as boy that "his !
mother, in presenting him to a tutor, de- j
cNred in complimentary terms that he was ;
an incorrigible dunce."
A I fieri, the most eminent of tragic poets,
gave promise of his talent in his early
days. His outbursts 'of temper repelled his j
friends, and he learned Iittl: or nothing in
his youth. Vet at forty-eight he mastered
Greek, and translated several languages. ;
He acknowledged that love made him a ;
Goldsmith, in his boyhood, neglected the I
golden opportunities offered him, and" gave
little enough heed to study. Obedience to j
rules he detested, and he became notorious j
for his improvidence and irregularities. At '
the university he exhibited no unusual ;
genius. In after life Le often spoke of him- : rTj
sen as a plant tn .t tiowered late."
Neither did Byron like the prescribed ;
tasks assigned him.'- Dry intellectual food " j
was not his ambition at school, and the
patience of his teacher was sorely tried hf j
proved such an unwilling pupil. Then he
passed from the first to the fourth clas,
and w.s altogether too self-willed to take
kindly to the necessary routin2 of study."
Robert Burns was not a 'precocious youth
he excelled more in athletic sports than in
his studies. He was not not ce-bly bright or
brilliant; and Tbom-s Chatterton. whose
brief career was such a melancholy one, was
another youth sent home to his mother with
the consoling compliment that ' he vsa
fool of whom nothing could be made."
Even Walter Scott, whose works are a
literature in themselves, cared little for his
text books. He much preferred desultory '
reading, and relished regular study so poorly
that the Irofes.sor of the fimous Edinburgh
University declared that be was a dunce and
would remain so.
Stuttering Jack Curran," as he was
familiarly known at school, w s awkward
and ungainly as a lad. .-md started out to
make something for himself, with the odds
agtinst him. A stupid scholar, he realised
his imperfections, and set to with a resolute
will to overcome them, and most dniirably
succeeded in his efforts.
The Duke of Wellington showed no pro
mise of future greatness in his rally life.
and gave his mother hours of uneasiness and
wrry. She felt no happy pride in her child,
and it was far later on that he achieved
me and won her interest and mlmirition
by his heroic deeds. She imagined him a
dance, but Le did not turn out according to
her early anticipations.
Many are the men, famous in the grand
walks ef life, who have, as Goldsmith said
of himself. flowered late." They have
often distanced their brilliant c mpanions (
who ridiculed and looked down upon them ; j
and the march of time h-s proved their ;
xight to immortal fame. j

nnJ handed liim his change. 'Wo had one,
but they are not talking about it any more.
What seems to be the trouble? asked the

tninw you could rose seven shillings toward
another in the country.' 'Didm't it come
ofTin gcod shape V inquired the cushier. 'It
went ofT, and that was chiefly tbo trouble
was the response. 'You see the picnic was
to raise some money to pay the intcrtft on
the mortgage and the balance to to the
heathen. The Avimmen turned loose and"
made jie, and we men ot come lemons and
buckets, and if we'd stopped there it weuli
been all riht. Lemonade nnd pie was good
enough for anybody, but some smart Alecks
thought we ought to hare soda water, and
like a choice assortment of darned fools, we
all chipped in for one of them copper foun
tains. 'That's ti pretty good idea, com
mented the cashier. 'Think bo, eh ! re
plied the farmer drriy. 'The idea was
good enough, but the fountain made trauble.
The way we fixed it was to let the noz.le of
the contrivance stick up through the table,
and squirt during the frugal rnenl. Thought
it would be a pleas. nt sight and enliven the
proceedings.' 'Did it" 'It did. There' a
great many factions in our country, but they
agree th.it the fountain enlivened tbe pro
ceeding's. You know we all gat around the
table on benches, nnd wo men carved the
pies while the wimmen dipped the drink.
We were to be helped before we turned the
fountain loose, and then we wns to catek the '
soda in glasses us it came out. Did you
catch any? 'We did. Wo didn't catch
much in the glasses, but wc got the aoda ;
that is, a good deal of it. Some of it got
away. Why, sir, just as soon an the parson
turned the spiggot you should have seen
that picnic ? Fizz! Whoop! And there we
was!" 'Where were vou ?' 'Well, we was
scattered. The table has been heard of
twice, nnd some think it looked as though
it was falling. Pie ! You should have seen
them pics! One big applo pie, with a top
and bottom attachment and scolloped edge,
went through that picnic like a circular
saw! You ought to see the timber fall
around that part! A custard ditto went
clean through old Aunt Betty Bigelow and
smashed against a barn with a report like a
sham bottle. Pie ! Friend, we carry sheet
iron umbrellas in our section now I' Any
one hurt ?' asked the cashier. 'Not to men
tion. ' We haven't got 'em all down out of
the trees yet, but those we have saved
seem to be oil right with the exception of
on edge or o joint knocked olT here and
there. I don't know that anv one was

A SPANISH INN.
All the region for miles and mile around
Arcos, is thickly planted with olives, which
give a pleasing aspect to this hilly country.
It whh late twilight when wo came clatter
ing into the ancient town, and were set
down at the house where the diligence stop
ped, which seemed to be presided oyer by
three old women. Wo wer? g urrounded at
once by a curious and helpful population all
to seize our pieces of luggage and bear them
to parts unknown. The driver, who was
our friend, appeared to be having a confer
ence with the old woman as to whether they
should have tho plucking of us, or would
send us to the regular posad.i, to which we
we wilted to go. In the growing dark
ness it was impossible to see where
we where, or where the posada was,
and it required all our vigilance to keep
track of our luggage. After a great deal of
confusion wc found ourselves transferred,
bag and baggage, to the posada, which was
almost directly opposite, m debt to h df the
loafers in Arcos for their valuable assist
ance. The posadu, the best in the place,
showed no sign of light or lifo. We entered
the stcbles, and made our way up a stone
'fair-case to the hotel apartments. No obse
quious landlord or landlady welcomed us.
bnt we at last discovered a tall, soar faced
maid-of-sll-work, haughty and dirty, who
condescended toshow us a couple of clean but
utterly l,are little rooms, and undertook to
get us something to eat. We felt humbly
obliged. The stranger in Spain, U most
inns and elsewhere, is treated as if the most
acceptable thing he could do would be to
take himself speedily out of the country.
Our apartments were furnished with .Spartan
simplicity; the guest is allowed a wash
bowl, but no pitcher, and the water given
him in the bowl is supposed to be quite
enough for his needs; but the bed, though
the mattress is made of uncomfortable lumps
of wool, is scrupulously clean. Our repast
wjs all that we could expect. The person
who is for.d of tasteless bears, will find
Spain a paradise. In this land of olives,
those served on the table are bitter and dis-
agreeable, nnd tho oil, in which everything
is cooked, is uniform-. lly rancid. JJut it
should be confessed that the oil is better
th n the butter, when the latter luxury is
attainable. Something seems to be the
matter with the cows. I do not wonder that
the Spaniards are at table a temperate and
abstemious race. It is no merit to bo
abstemious with such food and. cooking.
The wine a( Arcos, however, was a sort of
Manzanilla, that made us regard nny food
with favor. It was a medicinal draught,
with a very strong flavor of ehannmiU .
