Success In Life.
For a man to bo really successful
in the newly-settled portions of a coun?
try, the most essential element is a
power to turn his hand to anything.
It is not so necessary for him to be
skillful in any particular brauch os
to be able to apply himself, with
moderato efficieney to several. A
quick eye, a firm will, and a ready
hand, are the prime elements of sue*
cess in new settlements. -But as
bime proceeds tho division of labor
comes in, and in proportion as any
settlement is more advanced, it is
moro necessary that each should be
thoroughly proficient in one thing
rather than moderately proficient in/
many things. If a man has nhvay??
lived in a oity, and has attained grea?
skill in BO mo pursuit, he will succeed
better there than if he remove to a
newly-settled conntry. He whose
forte is variety and quickness of
adaptation, will rise most in a new
and growing territory. By keeping
this in mind, many would be saved
from misfortune and ruin, and much
productive power be gained to the
The labor of each man in the sphere
of his greatest adaptedness goes far
towards promoting the prosperity of
society, while, at the same time, each
man's own happiness and success de?
pend greatly upon his being in that
occupation in which he is most useful
to his fellow-beings. The very con?
sciousness of his being in such a
position will, of itself, be a secret
spring of happiness, far beyond what
is generally known. Especially is it
necessary for our young men to re?
member this, in the choice of an
occupation. Thonsands would thus
acquire independence and respect,
instead of mourning over disappoint?
ed ambition. Indeed, every one may
be quite sure of this, .that his own
best interest, and that of society in
general, are identical. In choosing
a business, therefore, let him examine
it carefully, in both respects, before
he decides. The pursuit iu which
they both best unite, isthat in which
he has most causo to hope for suc?
cess. No ono should choose any
occupation simply beoausn it is
fashionable, or because he hus seen
examples of fortunes made from it in
a snort time, or because he thinks ho
may thereby hold a more respectable
station iu society. Tho professions
or occupations which furnish these
advantages aro already proportioun
bly full, and tho likelihood of rising
in them is small, unless unusual
ability can be brought into play.
Of course, somo pursuits aro moro
useful or remunerative than others,
intrinsically, and many persons
would, perhaps, think that from this
very op-pumstance it would be bettor
for them to select these. But this
d<~?. not necessarily follow. Nature,
habits, education and associations
render men beBt fitted for different
employments; and tho careful parent
and prudent young man can gene?
rally discover from these data for
what occupation he is best fitted. A
person in the legal profession has an
opportunity of doing great good both
to himself and to the country, but
if tho profession bo already crowded,
ho may fail in doing good to either;
and if ho enters it with poorer ability
or preparation, he may injure society
by keeping out better talent, and he
may himself prove Uko the rash
young Plueton of ancient Mythology,
who undertook to drive tho chariot
of tho sun. It must also bo borne in
mind that tho fact of a persons's
having peculiar facilities for obtain?
ing an unusual degree of perfection,
in any particular occupation, is a
great indication that this is a most
suitable sphere for him to occupy.
In proportion, as society becomes
more complicated, success will de?
pend .more on individual fitness for
some specific department for which
the demand is greater than tbo sup?
ply. But one who presents ready and
varied abilities should settle in a new
Character is tho essence of destiny.
At any rate it is its plainest index.
A man ought to do that which he I
feels he can do better than other
men. - It should be especially remem?
bered that that occupation will not ?
always yield tho most true happiness
or respectability in which he can
make tho most money nt first. Other |
things being equal pecuniary com?
pensation will point .out, to a great I
extent, in what direction labor will
bo most useful to society;- but there
aro employments which will furnish
ready money, but will bring in the
ond ruin to health, habits, character
and hence to happiness. Wo may
strive to obtain a comfortable amount |
of this world's goods, but never even
for this must we deviate in the slight?
est from the strictest sense of honor
and of right.

NOW IS THE TIME TO CLEANSE OUT |
thoso PERILOUS 8POT8, Pimples,
corrupt sorcB, which FOLLUTE tho LIFE
of tho BLOOD, and render your body a
loathesomo thing. Thoy aro tho precur?
sors of a diseased blood, and will asBumo
a much moro formidable sh apo if allowed
to go on unchecked. Tho QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT, tho only real blood purifier that
has over been invented, aa thousands will
to-day attest, is offered to the afflicted as
a positive remedy for all diseases flowing
from a vitiated condition of tho system.
THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS TURE
BLOOD. Upon this theory alono tho in?
ventor of the Queen's Delight establishes
tho groat hygienic law, WITHOUT PURE
BLOOD NO FLESH IS FREE FROM DIS?
EASE. Tho Palo and Shrunken Forms,
Yellow Faces. Weak Stomachs, Diseased
Livors. Crippled Rheumatics, Nervous
Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Victims of
Headache! so common in this country, is
owing entirely to tho humors of tho blood.
Very many other diseases may bo traced to
bad blood, Scrofula or King's Evil, Erysi?
pelas, Exautucma or Elovurc, a rash or
eruption on females; Blotches, Tetter,
Goitre or Swolled Neck, Syphilis and Sy?
philitic Sores, Strumouu Ulcers, Ac.
These cannot bo cured without purifying
the blood. Now as to tho remedy. There
is no other blood purifier that will accom?
plish such positivo and extraordinary cures
as Heinitsh's Queen's Delight. Yon may
tako a barrel of extract Sarsaparilla, and
still you will not bo cured; and, as a proof I
of it, look around and you will observo the
country, throughout its length and
breadth, is flooded with compound Sarsa
Earillus, extracts and syrups, claiming to
e blood purifiers, and yet wo soe to-day
more oyidenoo ot impurity of tho blood
than ever. Why is tine? Simply because

MENTAL DKPREHSION,-Mental dc- |

tho ono that oxcites the least sympathy.
It is a subject of frequent jests, and is ?
.called by various dorisivo terms; but, al?
though it in often laughed at, it ?B not I
easy to laugh the patient out of tho belief |
that his ills aro all real, for it is a real dis?
order-tho genoral features of which aro
constant fear, anxiety and gloom. The
oxternal senses, as well nu tho mental1
faculties, often manifest symptoms of de?
rangement. Koine, as of falling water,
and ringing in tho c i rs, aro complained of,
while black spockB. and fiery sparks fre?
quently flit before tho vision. Admonitions
hko theso should not bo disregarded, as
they mav, if neglected, terminate in in?
sanity. The seat of tho disease is in tho
brain and nervoue system, and to control
tho malady it is necessary to uso a power?
ful tonio and alterative, which will correct
and tone thoBe organs without inflaming
the brain. Thia is the secret of tho suc?
cess of HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?

tho safest as well as tho heat of restora?
