"Buzz buzz buzz buzz!"
Indeed 1 cannot Bland thi. You'll
drive me quite crazy with your buzz, buzz,
buzzing. 1 must and will have silence.
I find Unit plain, pleasant persuasion will
not do; I shall be forced lo resort to a
harsher method. Now listen, one and all,
while I assure you that the first scholar,
old or young, miss or master, young gen
tleman or lady, whom I see whispering
without leave, 1 will ferule!"
The teacher, Mr. Arthur Stone, closed
his bearded lips firmly, and glanced about
the old fashioned school-room with a de
termined expression, as he ceased speak
ing, lie evidently meant just what he
T5Hi,l meant it in th faces of the stout,
stalwiirt young gentlemen, and tho pretty,
witching, bright-eyed girls about, him.
For a moment there was a dead silence
upon all, while every eye was fixed upon :
I lie hanusome, resolute laceoi me leacner.
But in the little crowd ol eager, upturned
faces, there was but one which his eye
nought intuitively, drawn as it were, by
some Hiantre, mefcmeric power. One face,
and one at that moment which was a pretty
picture of piquant beauty, wuh its saucy,
inquiniiive'Llue ye, which met his own
fully and uanugiy us sitawoeriy reu
mouth pursed up by the most provoking j
and daring of Finiles, that said as plainly I
as words could have said ii. "you won't j

This lime there was no mistaking it;
there was a perceptible motion of Anna
Hawkes' pretty head, an unmistakable
light in her eyes, and a whole, unbroken
beutence wreathed about the curve of her
lips, as the turned carelessly to her books
"you can ferule me if you choose," she
said mutely, not believing that he would
dare to do it.
"And I certainly will," was the silent
reply of the young man, confident all the
while that Bhe would not allow him an op
portunity of putting his threat into execu
tion. But he was ill at ease as he turned
moodily to the arithmetic class from which
his attention had betu drawn by tho unu
sual con'usion. Affairs hud taken a disa
greeable turn, an unexpected course, and
whatever he might do, he could not better
them. There was but one way for him.
He must put a stern face upon the matter.
He must maintain his dignity as a teacher,
even if he was obliged to thrust roughly
aside hh own wishes and inclinations.
Anna Hawkes pleasant, witching, grace
ful Anna the oue bright star that threw
so much light upon his arduous, tiiesome
duties; the warm-hearted girl who had
mown nearer and dearer to him as the dull,
wintry days went by, till he had dared
hopd, silently, yet earnestly, that sometime
he might be more to her than any one else
in the world, even she, if Bhe came be
tween him and his duties, must be sacri
ficed. It was a miserable thought, and
he greeted it with a long deep drawn sigh.
. Not once duiinu that afternoon did he
venture to look toward Anna's teat, or
allow himself to pause anywhere in her
vicinity, for fear his ears might be greeted
by a provoking odious whisper. Not once,
I say, but I must except the long recess,
during which he watched her eagerly, as
6he bent over her slate, working out her
algebraic problems. Apparently lost to
everything about her. Two or three times
he half started from his seal to go to her
assistance, as she knit her white Lrows
perplexedly, but a slrangfc new feeling like
pride, kept him back. He thought he had
never seen her look half as pretty or love
able as then, as she sat there bending
thoughtfully over her book, with one white
hand running rapidly and gracefully over
her slate.' Her dress of dark crimson
cloth, with its full sleeves confined at the
wrists by black velvet bands, fashioned
high in the neck, but in such a manner as
to display her, full, white throat, was
strangely becoming to her. He had never
thought so before, but there was a certain
refinement in her taste that was truly pleas
ing. It was vi.-ible in everything she wore
the dainty cambric collar conhned at the
throat by a dainty cameo breast pin; the
knots of a black velvet ribbon fastend
about her luxuriant, soil brown braids;
the petitt black silk apron, with its- girdle
of silk cord, and full, large, dropping tas
sels, and even the slender, shining little
kid boots that Deeped daringly out from the
folds of her ample skirt. In all his life
Arthur Stone had never looked upon a face
6r fin-ure u uleasant or captivating. But

curled upon her rosy moutii, ana wens wim

face, dilating her finely curved nostrils and
sweeping like very sunshine over the blue
of her eyes, making such rare dimples
about her chin, as one might have sup

Arthur Stone "vas vexed, but he was too
much a man of the world to allow the young
girl to know how much she was capible
of annoying him, and so after the first
flame of petty anger had died out from his
cheeks and forehead, he said in a voice,
the coolness of which. surprised even him-.
,ff sii(s-'lf.vV''j't1 -.ivr.-? -"V -'
Can I be of any assistance to you Miss
'.None sir, thank you. I have quite con
quered my exercises alone to-day."
Foolish fellow! The very coolness of
his manner betrayed the secret which he
strove lo hide. There was little need of
coverts where there was nothing to con
ceal. And so it was that the forenoon
slipped unpleasantly away, and the after
noon came in its sted. The teacher' rule
60 far had been a good oue. The school
was remarkable for its quietude. If Anna
Hawkes had not been present, Mr. Stone
would have counted it a success, but as it
was, he was in a constant tremor of fear.
A raised hand in the neighborhood of
her scat, aud a timid application for assist
ance was met with something like an un
reasonable fiown. In a hurried, nervous
way he proceeded to explain away the timid
applicant, anxious to be free from such
dangerous surroundings. Just as he was
congratulating himself upoti his success,
and about turning away, a rapid, whispered
volley of words rattled past his ears.
There was no avoiding it. He knew the
source from whence they came as well as
did every scholar that heard them. He
could not ptss thoughtlessly along. The
diesid alarm had come with such a sudden
distinctness as to surprise him into an in
voluntary start. Every pair of eyes in the
school-room were turned inquiringly and
curiously to his face. He wa3 forced into
doing his duty. Tho heavy beard about
his mouth was fiiitidly to him then, for it
covered a wis-picious pallor that settled
there as he turned about and rested his
eyes sternly upon tho blushing, piquant
lace of Anna Hawkes She was tho very
picture of innocence just then, with her
blown lashes drooped low upon her cheeks,
and the pearly white teeth crushed cruelly
down upon Hie crimson ot. lier lips, .
"Miss Hawkes, can you tell mo who
whispered a moment since?"
'Yes sir." The white lids were thrown
wide open, and the clear eye fixed frankly
upon his own.
"Will you oblige me by stepping this
way a moment?" He led the way out on
t the floor. .
"Yes, sir, certainly." She followed him
promptly, pausing beside the desk and
testing one hand prettily upon its top.
"1 suppooeyou listened to my rule this
"You understood it, too, doubtless?"
"Understanding it perfectly, then, you
have been pleased to break it. Can you
name my duty?"
"It does not admit of a question. Fer
ule mo, sir." She commenced drawing a
slender gold ring from her left hand.
"This baud?" she asked, suddenly looking
up into his face.
"We have plenty of time, Miss Hawkes;
do not hurry," he said, evading her ques
tions, 'I have something to say to you."
She leaned her elbow upon the desk, and
her burning face upon her hand. "I shall
be happy to listen to you," she said.
"I will not trouble you but a moment,
onlv to sav that I res-ret more than I am
able to exDiess. that a scholar whom 1
have endeavored to treat with uniform cour
tesy and respect, and in whose advance
ment 1 had lelt a lively interest, snouiu,
bv so rrlannira misdemeanor, such an utter
contempt for my wishes, avow a disregard
for me as a teacher and a iriena. bucn a
display is unpleasant enough if a more
child wilfully breaks the rule ot a ecnooi,
but when, instead, a young gentleman or
ladv so far forcets him or herself, it is in
tensely paintul. 1 can assure you mat j.
deeply retrret this."
Anna bowed gracetulty as 3ir. cstono
- m e.1 sT .
ceased epeakiug. Again her white teeth
were dented into her lip, wniie tne Drown
lashes trembled close upon the deep burn
ins: red of her cheeks.
"Your hand, if you please."
The little white hand was reached forth
as though it were to receive a caress in
stead ot a blow. As it lay so tetmeriy ana
trustingly upon the broad palm ot the
teacher, he inwardly cursed his stars.
He called himself a brute, a tyrant, a
monster. He had a mind to get down
upon his knees and pray for a big-mouthed
earthquake to come aud swallow him, for a
euuueu iiasn oi ngnming m wniiei
time) to melt him into nonentity; br a
whirlwind to sweep him with its rapid
rushing storm from off the face of the
earth. Strike that little dimpled hand with
a cruel two-inch rule? He had rather
cover, ay, blister it with kisses, instead.
It trembled within his grasp, and about the
mouth of the owner a little white line was
islanding the redness of her lips. For a
moment he thought he would kneel before
her, and ask her to give the pale prisoner
to him. It would be hia band then, ana
no one could blame him for not wishing to
injure his own property. A thought struck
him. He might strike hia own han in
stead of Anna's. He could shield her and
take the blow himself. The idea was a
rare one. He was in a mood for cracking
every knuckle that he owned. He raised
his ruler. Anna raised her eye to his face.
IIi fixed, determined expression startled

her. She would -bear his bJow without
shrinking, without stArting, sh thoup-ht.
butO, she would hate him, hate him, hate
him, so long as she lived! As the thought
passed through her mind, a gay, dashing
looking sleigh, drawn by a pair of fine
horses, came rapidly up to tjie school
house door. Lucky.'lucky Mr. Stone, the
rule fell harmlessly upon the fai- rosy palm
of Anna, as he turned his eyes toward
the window and exclaimed hurriedly:
The committee, Miss IlawKes. You
can take your seat now, but remain tp night
after school. Even for this interruption I
should not feel justified in lettiu the aflair
pass." v. .

I would care to see!" exclaimed Mr. Stone
to himself, as he bowed low before the
pompous young gentleman known by the
cognomen of Dr. Wesley Barker, who
rapped with his whip upon the door- said
young gentleman being one of wealth and
education. But the teacher did not care a
fig for his wealth he did not envy him
or care anything for hrs education his
own was quito equal to it. But what he
did care tor, was that ur. uarkcr was a
great admirer of Anna Hawkes, and in the
present state of affairs he did not tare
about having rivals around. Everything
went along smoothly du.-ing school hours,
as it a wavs aid uunnr tne visits oi
the several committees; but the moment
school was dismissed Dr. Barker strode
across the school-room floor and up to Anna
Hawkes seat. Mr. Stone bit hi lips with
vexation. His rival had made his ap
pearance just in the nicii ot time, lie de
spised meanness heartily, uenouncua it,
but now in spite of himself, he stood and
listened eagerly to catch the few words
thatdropped from Dr. Barker'eand Anna's
"I'll ask Mr. Stone to excuse me," ho
heard Anna say.
"Which of course he will do," replied
"I am not so certain," was the smiling
i 1 i .til
answer, as she starteu towaras tne aesK.
"I hope you will pardon me for daring
to ask such a thing, but Dr. Barker wishes
me to take a drive with him in his new
sleiuh, which I am very anxious to do,
and so I'd like to be excused from remain
ing to-night to take my feruling, promis
ing to come early to-morrow morning."
Mr. Stone bowed and said "very well,"
though the woids quite chocked him. He
secretly wished JJr. uarKer ana ins new
sleigh in China, and himself free from the
vocation of shool-teachinsr. He thouffht
as he stood moodily by his desk patching
Anna Hawkes pin her plaia shawl closely
about her throat, and tie under Jier chin
the blue r bbons of her quilted hood, pre
paratory to her drive with Dr. B inker,
that he was the most miserable man in ex
istence, and that he would purchase him
a farm, work at shoveling on the railroad,
would do anything ratner thau teach
another school. He had engaged already
to take charge of the village academy the
following spring, but now he resolved that
he would not do it he would throw up
the engagement at once.
"No doubt she thinks me a very great
brute," he said to himself,as the gay equip
age went down the street. Perhaps after
all, she had not meditated that ruthless at
tack upon his dignity and patience. In
deed, now he thought of it again, the
whisper was more like a sudden exclama
tion than auything else. Yet he had not
given her the slightest chance for an ex
planation, hurried her forward to a punish
ment the dolt, that he called himself.
He had a very poor opinion of Arthur Stone
just at that moment. He was sure that
he should like to horse-wnip mm.
A faint counterpart of the pupil's
thoughts and feelings were those of the
teacher. It was a dull, dreary drive that
Anna Hawkes took with Dr. Barker.
She hadn't a heart to enjoy it after the
folly of the afternoon. "He thinkB that I
do not care for or respect him," was the
thought uppermost in her mind, which
ever way 6he turned. "And this is the re
turn I am making him for all his kindness
to me all the interest he has taken in my
studies, both in and out of school. O, if
he could but know the truthl"
The truth! The young girl startled
herself by the words. And what was the
truth? She buried her burning face in
W hands as Bhe asked the question. It
was this. She loved Arthur' Stone! loved
him better than life itself! A cry of pain
went from her lips, as the knowledge
slowlv settled down upon her heart. But
what proof had she given him of this?
What proof that she was any other than a
vain, selfish, unwomanly thing! None,
alas, none! Like any woman who is con
scious of her power, she gloried in hers
over Arthur Stone. But how was he to
know that it was any but the glory of a
fickle, heartless coquette, rather than of a
strong, loving, true-hearted woman, who
makes her power a golden chain about the
heart of the man she loves, Dy wnicn sne
draws him tenderly and gently toward
her? How, O, hoir was he to know this?
The thoucrht was affonizinir to her.
- She resolved at last to co to him in the
morning and confess her fault, humbling
as it was. He should know, at least, that
she held his feelings too sacred to wound
them wantonly. But in the morning she
was sick and feverish, scarcely able to lift
her head from the pillow. She could not
see Arthur that day. and she must con
tentedlv wait for the next. Against her
wishes, Dr. Barker was summoned, who
croaked dubiously of a fever which was
. . , f ,
hanging about her. tine must oe careiui,
be very quiet, and follow his directions,
he said, and he would come again in the
afternoon to learn how she was getting
alonsr. He came in the afternoon, but at
an uuluckv hour. Anna sat leaned back
in the rocking chair by the street. But
while he prated learnedly at her side he
saw a rapid red stain through the white
ness of her cheek, and nn eager light break
out from the clear blue of her eyes. Ar
thur Stone was passing by the house, and
viewing with a scornful curl of the lip the
hanusome equipage ot Dr. Barker, lie
did not look beyond it, to the pale face
bent so ' earnestly toward him but lie
turned his eyes coldly away, and- walked
haughtily down tho street, while .Anna
sank with, a sigh into the softly cushioned
The next morning she refused lo remain
away from school another day. Arthur
Stone would say that she was cowardly,
that she feared a feruling, that sho ab
sented herself purposely, because of the
misunderstanding. of Tuesday afternoon,
w.hleh"he was- toogaihy W-ftwo-ag-VTnj--She
would go to school though Bhe drop
ped fainting on her way. She could not
rest until her weary mind was unburdened
of this heavy load. So she went. pale and
trembling, at an early, hour to the school
house. "How he scorns me how ho hates me!"
she thought, as Mr. Stone quietly raised
his eyes to her face, and 6he bowed a si
lent good morning as she entered the room.
How could she ever face that btem, cold
gaze, and make her excuses for not keep
ing hor appointment of the previous morn
ing? "I was too ill to come out yesterday
morning," stio said in a trembling voice,
or 1 should not have broken the promise
I made to you. Will this morning do as
Mr. Stone glanced keenly into her face.
The blanched checks and white qui veiing
lips testified lo the truth of what sho said.
"Are you able to bo here now?" he
asked, in a tone of voice that had more of
tenderness than aught else running throw
'Hardly. You can fer ferule me,
and I will go home," 6he said, while her
cheeks crimsoned with shame.
Mr. Stone bit his lips to keep back a re
ply which rose involuntarily to them.
Again was that tender white hand before
him waiting meekly for its punishment,
now weak and trembling frem illness.
Did she think him a brute? Quite evi
dently, from her action.
1 1 regret that 1 wounded your
feelings on Tuesday," she said, raising

"Pardon you!" Mr. Stone repeated the
words slowly, in a clear, emphatic tone.

With a quick, rapid movement the
teacher grasped the little feverish hand
that was outstretched to him, and covered
it over and over again with fervent, pas

grey eyes grew deep and tender in thoir ex

Tho answer was faint and low that came
from Anna Hawkes lips, tut nevertheless
it was a satisfactory one, for the sweet lit
tle mouth from whence it camo took im
mediate reward in kisses.
So it ended. And a few weeks after,
Anna Hawkes became Mrs. Arthur Stone,
much to the satisfaction of the wondering
school of Elton.

Racine, O., March 5, 1C59.
Editor of the Telegraph: The people
of our town and vicinity, were favored on
the evenings of Tuesday and Wednesday,
the 1st and 2d insts., with an exhibition
gotten up under the superintendence of J.
L. Beckler and J. M. Goodspeed, princi
pal teachers of the graded schools in this
place. Ihroujih the kindness and gener
osity of the trustees ot the Methodist
Church, it was used tor the purposes ol
the exhibition; and, although the largest
public building in town, it was filled to
overflowing both nights.
The first evening's exercises were opened
with prayer by Rev. J. L. Richmond, of
Mt. Vernon, 0., who happened to be tran
siently in the place at the tune. He seemed
highly delighted with the periormance
stated that ii was one of the best of the
kind that he had ever seen and Bincerely
regretted that he could not remain until
the second evening. Rev. Dr. Adams of
this place, invoked the blessings of Heaven
upon the exercises of the last evening, in
a solemn and impressive manner. This
evening's performauce, like the" first, passed
off most felicitously although five con
secutive hours in length. A fact which
speaks volumes as to the general interest
of the exhibition.
The following is a list of the names of
all those engaged in any ot the perform
ances: Misses Christie Lallance, M. C.
Lallance, M. E. Philson, Julia Adams,
Amanda Adnms, Hannah Weldon, Caro
line Allom, S. F. Wolf, Elizzie Harpold,
M. A. Alexander, R. V. Crowser, Lydia
Cross. Abijal Wolf. F. E. Petrell, S. E.
Bickwell. A. A. Middleswart, R. E. Ellis,
Caroline Wolf, Ella Campbell, Francis
Pinnell, Eliza Elliott Young Ladies and
Artimecia Young. Molly Ellis and Kiltie
Petrell little girls. Also, Mr. J. Lallance,
L. W. Philson, C. R. Hopkins, E. Cross,
J. II. Kelley, C. Campbell, A Cuuipbel!,
M. Campbell, L. Trassell, J. Ilaymau, M.

Wm.- Iioorais, D. Cross,-W. Cross, W.
Miles, B. Ellott, II. L. Sibley! J. Hopkins,

ander. Some of the young men engaged
in the exhibition were not "connected
with the school; but a majoiity of them
had been in attendance during llio late
During the performance, wo listened to
declamations ou the subjects which follow:
Day conceals what night reveals, by J.
Hopkins; Emmetl's defense, by D. Cross;
Gitalin's defiance, by W. A. Ellis; Our
duty labour country, by 0.-"R-. -HyrkmB1;
Barbarity of National Hatreds, by L. Tras
sell; The Bible, by Amanda Adams; Pat
riotic speech, by B. Elliott, and How dad
acted boss, by L. W. Philson.
As will be seen by their titles, the larger
part of tho declamations were of a high
character, boih in a moral and literary point
of view. Emmetl's defense,-wi consider
one of the finest pieces of urutoiy of which
our language can boast; while i lie mourn
ful circumstances which surrounded its
talented and patriotic, but s.-ully unfortu
nate author, at the time of its delivery,
serve to give it additional interest. And
the favorable impression of the audience
was still further highteued, by the truly
impressive mauner in which it was re
hearsed on this occasion. Our duty lo
our country, The barbarity of national ha
treds, Cutalitie's defiance, The Bible and
Hark the joyous Hilda, will not soon be
forgotten; while the intensely humorous
comicalities of the Patriotic speech, Dad's
acting IIoss, &c., have certainly produced
all the beneficial effects, without the pain
of a cart-load of "drugs nnd medicines!"
:In the course of the performance, there
were two discussions; one by six young
men, aud entitled "Young America," and
the other by fourteen young ladies, upon
the subject of "gentility."
The first, is a fine and cutting satire
upon the ultra-progressiveness of a certain
class of the "rising generation" who, dis
carding those rules of good morals and
"steady habits," which Bhould guide us
all, suddenly burst forth into the glorious
manhood of tobacco-chewing, cigar-smoking,
whisky-drinking-loafers to their
own disgrace, the chagrin and trouble of
worthy f riends and fond parents, and the
gnat evil and expense of all good society.
The second, most beautifully nnd truth
fully showed, that true gentility consists
nol in the accidents of birth,suoh as wealth,
talents, or the honors of position although
each of these may be auxiliary thereto
but rather in practicing the combined pre
cepts of virtue and religion "act well
your part there all the honor lies."
Both the style and sentiment of the exer
cise were excellent. By the way, too, the
"boys" must look well to their laurels, or
loose them, so far as elocution is concerned.
The ladies spoke finely.
The following dialogues were rehearsed
very much to the instiuction and amuse
ment of those present:
Effects of influenza; Female Exquisites;
Fractious Man; Widow Bedo'tt and Elder
Snifile's Courtship; The model School;
The virtues and Graces; The Farmer and
Philosopher; The Walking Dictionary;
The Country Cousin; Peter Keazle and
Lady; Sentimental Charity; Three years
of a Farmer's Son; Ilobb and Nobb, nnd
All for good order; the latter a scene in a
commou country school.
These performances, we think, wcr ex
ceedingly well adapted to the end in view
in their selection, viz: the Uicipliningot the
actors, and the combination, in a high de
gree of instiuction with amusement.
The "Virtues and uraces," penorroeu
by twelve young ladies, dressed in white,
nnd remeaentni! twelve virtues ol re
ligion each bearing an appropriate em
blem of the character she peisonated was
one of the most beautiful and pleasing en
forcements of the cardinal requirements of
religion and morality, which it was ever

our graces, cannot certainly iau oi uemg

"Three years ot a farmer a son exhib

the sad history ot these uniouunates aoes

which in this case suffused so many moth
er's eyes with tears. Theles9ou which it
taught will long be rememuerea.
The "Farmer and i'hiiosopner was a
fine exhibition of one of the multitudinous
coaflicts in which knowledge is so fre-

conflict of scientific truth with dull, scupid
bigotry and perverseness. However, as is

back-stroke at a certain "boarding-school-

often prevails with the "fast" deecendents
of occasionally lucky snobs, retired mer
chants, and accidentally tortunate specu
lators, which we remember ever to have
seen. Certainly, no young lady who li:

.- Had we time and space, wo would gladly

must conclude this topic by saying that
"Ilobb and Nobb," a piece as full of wit
and humor ns an egg is of meat, was cai
ried through in a siyta which cannot be

M. O. Lallance and M. E. Philson a "So
cial Chat" and an oration "On the claims
of the ago upon tho young men of Anw
l ica," by H.L. Sibley.
The essays were well-written, and we
think art! an honor and credit to their au
thors. We believe they will compare fa
vorably with n equal number taken from
almost nny academy of tho State thus
clearly evincing the superiority of the
"Union Schools," for mental culture and
development, over the faulty byslems of
timed past. The vigor and clearness with
which Mr. Goodspeed traced the progits
sive development of man, from the inoli-
lutiuns of the earliest antiquity to those
of the present age, was well worthy his
known ability not only to think, but also
to write what he thinks. The dialogue to
which we referredtwe think equal in beauty
of diction to anything of the kind in tho
whole performance. This is the girl's
first trial, but we hope it will not be iheir
hi6t. The prestige of the first success
presages the certainly of the second.
In conclusion, wo must say (excepting,
of course, our own performance) that tho
exhibition was a complete success sur
passing anything of tho kind ever before
attempted in Racine. The selections were
excellent both as regards their moral lone
aud literary character; while the perform
ers executed their part of tho task mosr.
admirably. Happy will be the time when
the amusements of j oulh, so uecessary to
health and happiness, shall be ueiversally
combined with mental, moral, and relig
ious instruction, as was generally the case
in our exhibition. H. L. bllJLihX.
A Word to tsie Boys.
Come, boy3, and listen a few momenta
to your uncle. You have now arrived at
an age when you mustjbegin to think about
doing- something for yourselves. The first
piece of advice I have for you is, to do
everything well which you undertake.
There is but little danger of you being too
particular in this respect. A boy who is
careful to draw a straight line on his slate,
will be very likely to make a straight lino
through lite. There is no position in life
in winch you will not be called upon to be
as exact as possible. Step into a jeweler's
shop, and 6ee how careful the workman
must be in finishing up the article he
holds in his hands. Visit a ship yard, aud
the uiau with the broad axe must learn to
hew on the lino, or be dismissed. You
think of being a clerk. Well, remember
that a mistake there is little loss than a
crime. I never saw a man who was very
particular about his affairs that was not
successful. How exact is the military
officer in the command of a body of men!
A clumsy sailor will never ii3e to the com
mand of a ship.
But there is one great danger which be
sets many young men at the present day.
It is the disposition to avoid all solid im
provement, and take up with subjects that
require no thought, and which serve as
mere excitement to the mind. Yourother
friends tell you that boys are very fast at
the present "day, but I can remember fast
boys long before you were born; but they
never made solid and useful men! Very
few of them ever lived to be forty years '
old. Nobodj ever trusted them. They
never filled any important office or station.
They usually became small men, be
cause they had no capital in their heads,
with w hich to work out a living. Out of
fifty of that class of fast boys 1 do not
know of one whoever accomplished much.
As you sow, so shall you reap. The boy
who spends his hours late aud early at the
card-table, bowling-alley, or tavern bur
room, is learning nothing useful, but much
that is injurious. Listen to such men us
Amos Lawrence, Thomas II. Benton,
Daniel Webster, Benjamin Franklin, and
George Washington. nd they will all tell
you that they av oided all these things, and
owed their greatness to their atteulion in
early life to what would be useful to them.
This may bo a hard lesson for you, but
it must be studied, and the earlier in life
you acquire it, the.better will your proS
pects be for a successful career. Please
regard the advice o( your old uncle Felix.
