tennial jubilee and anniversary at Rtck
Island. Clergymen and delegates from
nearly every state in tbe union will be
present at that time, besides an unusu-
lly large number of visitors from both
this country and the old world, who come

A great dual bus been said about what
books a woman ou-bt to read in order to
become cultured. The greatest number of
individuals do not like to lie talked to on
serious philosophical subjects. They like
observations best. Books of all sorts should
be read, it seems to me, but with discrim
ination. It is a good thing to find out what
attribute you need most. I think Keats,
Shelley and, above all, Shakespeare, give
one an insight into human nature, while
Washington, Coleridge, Irving, Thackeray
and Balzac give appetite. In regard to the
classics, they are tbe best foundation of all,
and as for German literature, it abounds
with literary treasures. The best advice to
my mind is, read all yon can and form your
own opinion. Knowledge never hurts any
body, and if i conception of an author re
pels yon, you are not obliged to stand the
infliction. Kew York Advertiser.
