The Irish peasant, though apt to be long
winded at times, Is capable on occasion ot
summarizing the situation In singularly terse
fashion. A landlotd showed me lately a let
ter he had received from a former tenant,
now In Australia, In which there occurred
the following passage: "Then' are more
men Idle In S) dney than there Is hi T Mock,
looking for work and praying to
(iod not to get It, but loafing around from
one public house to another." Again, the
expression made useof by a Kerry game
keejHTto describe thn ascent of a steep
green slope namely, that 'ono was atln'
grass all the way" has always struck mo as
a singular vivid picture of the relative jtosl
tlons of climber and hillside.

"Kxcept some professed scholars, I
have often observed that women In gen

Inglsof little benefit to themselves or
Thla remark ia. I fear, just aa appllc.v
ble to iilncleeii'tHenlletlia of tile men, i
taken at random, aa it la to women, fur I
myohservallun leads me to the conclii- I
aioiithat a great many men read nothing !
except newspapers, while a Mill larger j
number read with no oilier purpusethan
that of "killing lime," and escaping the
dreadful malady or ennui. The elleet of
reading the newspapers exclusively la
to produce auperllulallty and In till the
heada of men with a inr.aa of ill.pasortcd
miscellaneous and heterogeneous matter
of no parlleular use.
Few men read with "a plan, or llxed
object," though both sexes ahould do ao.
If they dcalre to read to any protlt.
My observation bai asllelled me that
women excel menaaletterwritera. The
majority of women write llvelv and
aketchy letlera, which are Interesting,
even when they are wanting In the
graces ofa really polished atyle. As 1
always like to account ror everything
that appears to admit of explanation, I
have endeavored to acoount for the su
periority of women as letter writers,
and after revolving tbe matler, have
reached the conclusion that It proceeds
from tbe natural oast or Ihelr minds.
Women certainly excel men In the
faculty of observing and painting
manners, and In writing dra
matically, yet naturally. Tbey
also excel in the art of description and
these thing lead them unconsciously to
employ the true narrative style In writ
ing letters. It Is needless to say that
narrative Is the true epistolary atyle.
letters should not be essays nor speech
es, yet men are apt, Insensibly, to fall
Into an essay or a apeeoh when they alt
down to write a letter even to a friend.
Women employ plain language and
write In a conversational atyle, and ael
dom cudgel their brains In order to aay
eloquent, or smart things. In their let
ters; they write from their feellnga
rather than their heada, and consequent
ly their lettera are chatty, lively and In
teresting. There la a good deal of diversity of
opinion aa to bow reading ahould be
prosecuted, and many eminent men have
read without "a plan or llxed object,"
and In tbe moat deaultory manner imag
inable. No one ever saw Sargent S.
l'rentisa reading or atuddiing, jet bis
readintr wna moat exlenalve. lie was
never known to prepare bis law cases
that is, no one ever saw him engageil at
snob preparation, yet, when they come
to be tried, he was fully posted and pre
pared at all times.
Gibbon has left on record on aocount
of his own manner of reading, which
was unique. He seldom read a book
through, continuously; but, when the
book he was engaged upon, happened.
Incidentally, to touch upon, or allude to,
anotber subject, that excited an Interest
In hlra, be laid tbe llrst book aside, and
read on the new eueject. lie contended
that tbla manner of reading bad the ef
fect of keeping the attention from Han
ging; and that what we read with lively
curiosity and cloae attention la more
likely to make a durable Impreaaion
upon tbe mind.
Thla theory Is certainly reasonable and
plausible, still Ibis manner of reading Is
often rendered Impracticable by the Im
possibility of procuring the book neces
sary for prosecuting ao discursive a
course of reading. It ia true of the men
tal aa well as of the bodily food that
"what Is one man's meat, Is another
man' poison," and benco no llxed and
Invariable plan of reading, such as that
all men snail read a certain Bet of books
In a certain order, or follow the plan of
Olbbon, will suit every mind. What is
to be done then? It would be better for
both men and women If they read
fewer buoks and read a few repeatedly
so as thoroughly to master them. Ily
such a course they would acquire the
style of tbe authors whose works they
fierused repeatedly, Instead of contract
ng either slip-shod or a polyglot style.
The multitude of books annuallv Issued
from tbe press tempts us to read hur
riedly as well as promiscuously, and tbe
natural reaun ia mat we get a stnntier
Ing of knowledge rather than reliable
knowledge. The mind Is not given
proper time for digestion while the mem
ory Is overloaded by reading promiscu
ously and hurriedly a great number of
After all, It Is not tbe number of
books we read, nor tbe plan followed In
reading them that serves to store our
minds with knowledge. A mere book
worm Is unable to aessort the undigested
materials piled up In his mind like nails
In a keg or boxes and packages In a
warehouse. Ue bas verified nothing by
reflection. Book worms are nothing but
bonk worma, by which Is meant, that
their reading Is unprofitable to tbem
aelves and to others.
What then renders reading profitable?
Thla la the eecentlal matter. It Is the
kernel ofthe question.
Thought and reflection are neces
sary to enable the mind to di
gest and aslmllste the foo I poured Into
II by reading; and, without aueh process
of dlg-sllori and assimilation, reallng
never can be profitable, no matter upon
what plan, It may be proseuuted, either
to men or women, 'I he mere perusal of a
book la of no consequence, unless Ita
contents have been bolted and allied by
our minds, and packed away in the
chambera of our memory.
What Cowper aald. Is literally true of
the majority of men and women:
"Too weak to bear
Thn Insupportable fatluue of thought.
And swallowing therefore, without
paiiae or chulre
The tntal griat unsifted, huska and all."
1 believe, that U we exclude from our
computation, the men who read with a
view tn prnfeaslonal knoMledge.lt will
be found that rully aa many women read
with a plan and n llxed object, as the
same number of men ilu. None except
the wealthy are tn a onndltliin, that ad
mlla of their mapping out a coiirae of
reading and punning It, ateadlly ami
without Inti rinlsslon. or distraction of
attention. Tho majority of men i.nd
women possess but scant libraries, and
are nut In reach of public libraries, so
that neceaalty limits their rending.
Again, nunc but the ricli have t tie eniiro
diaposal of their lime, and are able to
devote ao manv houra a day to atudy
and reading. The majority of men and
women have matiy deiiMiids upon their
attention, and many tasks to perform
they am furced tu be bread winners to a
greater or less an extent, and able to de
votennlv an occasional hour tu reading
which is not favorable lo uourenira

lo perform and children In look after,
have small opportunities of steady read

"makes n full man;" but lie also ob
served that "conversation made a ready

should go together if possible. Tonky.
