a week, which may be used for
months with slight variations. .She

There arc many young working
men who arc anxious to improve their
minds by reading* nud study out of
business hours. But too many grow
discouraged and fail in iiicir cflorts
for self-improvement, although they
begin with the best intentions.
A want of thoroughness in what
ever Is Undertaken is, perhaps, one
great cause of such failures. A prac
tical writer oil that topic gives the
following good direction : "Never
leave what you undertake to learn
until you can reach your arms around
it, and clench your hands on the other
side." It is not the amount of read
ing you run over that will ever make
you learned; it is the amount you
retain. Dr. Albcrnclhy maintained
that "there was a point of saturation
in his mind." beyond which it was not
capable of taking in more. Wliat
cver was pressed upon it afterwards
crowded out something else. It is
probable that lew of us have minds
more sponge like than that of the
Every young man should endeavor
to perfect himself in the science of the
business he has chosen. Without
this, he must always content himself
in the lower walks of his calling. The
cost of a few cigars will buy all the
books he requires, and his own dili
gence may be made to well supply
the place of a tutor. Without such
diligence, the best teacher in the
world cculd not, manufacture him a

comprehend it. But though it is
wise to give your main strength to
your own specialty, you should not
confine yourself to such studies exclu
sively. The perfection of all your
power? should he your aspiration.

Some people aro always poor. In
the very midst of plonty they have
nothing. A. rainy day is suro to find
them in want, and a sunshiny ono
leaves them no hotter prepared 'for
tho next storm. Why is this? Those
who aro belter favored cannot under
stand it. They wonder how men can
go hungry in a land flowing with milk
and honey. They arc almost con- j
strained at times to deny the state
ment, and declare it foolishness. Still
the fact stares them in tho face, as the
pitiful cry for bread goes up from
herds of hungry souls in every land.
Like the wrecked mariner dying of
thirst in mid-ocean, so these pitiable
creatures famish in a world that is
liberal with its bounties.

A Tuamp Manoled hy Dogs.?
William Harris was sent to the Ualti
moro hospital to receive medical at
tention for a number of ghastly
wounds upon tho head and neck in
dicted by tho teeth of dogs. Harris
says he is a nativo of New York, and
was on his way to Baltimore looking
for work. He had arrived about live
miles of the city, and feeling very
hungry and tired stopped at a house
to ask for something to eat. Upon
! entering the yard ho was attacked by
two large Newfoundland dogs, and
being greatly fatigued from his long
tramp, could only make a feeble re
sistance. Two more dogs, attracted
by the noise, joined in tho attack,and
after throwing him down, they all con
tinued to bite ferociously at various
parts of his body, but particularly bis
head. The owner of the dog' was
finally attracted by the noise, ami
running out, drove the dogs olf, and
rcscurcd tho unfortuunto man from
his terrible position. It is doubtful
if he can recover.

Wistanley, On its sides he put va

the storm, crying:

the tower and its builder. It was
built a second time of wood and stone
by Rudgard. The form was good,
but the wood gave hold for the ele
ment, and the builder and his struc
ture perished in the flames.
The next great Smcaton was called
in. He raised a cone from the solid
rock on which it was built, and rive
ted it to the rock, as the oak is fas
tened to the earth by its roots. From
the rock of the foundation ho took
the rock of the superstructure. He
craved upon it no boastful "inscrip
tions like tliosc of Wistanley, but on'j
its lower course he put, 'Except the
Lc^d build the house, they labor in
vain that build it;' and on its key
stone above tho lantern, the simple
tribute, "Laos Deo!' and the struc
ture still stands, holding up its beacon
light to the storm tossed mariner.
