ertions of one or two gentlemenwhen
there was a good driving pitch, all be
cause of a dispute between two of the
large concerns. Hanging up the drive
is a very serious matter to the busi
ness men of Princeton, the hundreds of
laboring men employed in the mills
below, the men working on the drive,
and the lumbermen themselves. The
only way to put a stop to all this
wrangling is for the legislature to in
corporate a company, who'will put in
a good damn, and drive all the logs on
the river at so much per thousand

everyone would be compelled to pay

men employed, for the men who own

By seekers for fame and for bread,
That the members are pushing each other.
As close as tbe'r footsteps can tread.

Though thousands are pressing around

And he who on justice relies.

The classic literature is always mod

ate old ideas old books suggest and in
vigorate new ideas.
It is a great preservative to a high
standard in taste and achievenjfent to
take every year some one gr&t book

read but to be coned, studied, brood

the time! compel yourself to read it
again and again. Who can be dull

some transcendant mind, and not feel
the benefit of it when he returns to
the common world?
