THE REAL VALUE.
Slow All LUteature In containeC In a
Few Great Booka.
Young people must every now and
then hear it said or see it written that
all the real value In literature can be
put upon a pmall shelf-that is to say,
the really Important part of all that is
written Is contained in a very few
good books, all the rest being either
unImportant or difierent ways of say
ing the same things that have been
saId before. The statement, of course,
Is not true If It be0 taken literally.
There are certainly many hundreds,
perhaps thousands, of books that con
taiin origInal thoughts or experIences
that are truly valu abie; but, generally
speakIng, the best part of all that has
been written Is to be found in a few
volumes. To uniderstand how this is
possible we must remember that near
ly all rules are the same as other and
simlher rules. In arIthmetic, for ex
ample, the whole science consists of
only four simple ways of treating num
be. We can add, subtract, multiply
and divide, and that is all we can do
to numb~ers. The rest of the book -is
only the working out of these four
rules: thus all of the arithmetic could
easily be put into a little page that
one could carry in the vest pocket.
All behavior, all right living, is also
set forth In a fewv simpIle laws. These
illustrations will show what is meant
by saying that all literature is contain
ed In a few great books. The Bible
and the works of a few famous p~oets
and essayIsts contain all human wvis
dom, and these are within the reach of
every purse.-St. Nicholns.
