Gardiner, Jan. 10, 1870. To the Editor of the Kennebec Journal: The question of uniform text books in our common schools throughout the State is again being agitated, and if wc are not greatly in error that measure should be adopted. We think the importance of the measure cannot fail of appreciation if wc but take into consideration the great variety of books, par ticularly readers, that are now in use in our State. As an illustration of the inconvenience often occasioned by the use of so great a variety of books, please look at our own and adjoining towns ; here we use “Hillard’s Reader;” in Farmingdale, “Wilson’s” are in use, and in Richmond, “The National Series”. If Smith, now a resident of Richmond, with a large family of children, finds it for his pecuniary advantage to remove to Gardiner, he is under the necessity of procuring a new stock of Readers if nothing more, in order that his children may attend school, and if after having been here a short time he thinks he can farther improve his condition by chang ing his residence to Farmingdale, he will be again under the same necessity (which is no small tax.) else his children are debarred from the advantages of the common schools, or again it* a resident of either of our adjoining towns wish to send their children to our schools, (as they often do,) they are at a great expense in procuring the necessary readers, if no other books, as the books used in their towns are not in use here. The ex amples above sighted art- not isolated eases, but are of every day occurrence, and are almost daily drawing an enormous amount of money needlessly from those who can ill afford the expense ; nor is it the public alone that suffer, but traders are under the necessity of invest ing a large amount of capital now to meet the public demand that would be unnecessary bad we a uniformity of text books throughout the State. It is no uncommon thing for them to be under the necessity of keeping three or four series of readers in stock (to say nothing of the other books that uniformity would do away with) greatly to their pecuni ary disadvantage. We would earnestly call the attention of our Legislators now in session to this impor tant question, and hope the matter will he formally brought before the present Legisla ture that the measure may be fully discussed, which we believe cannot fail to effect its adoption. Star. glisifcUanmtsi. WISE THOUGHTS OF WISE ME!*. Truth.—AA'e must not always speak all that we know—that were folly; hot what a man says should be what lie thinks, oth erwise it i-> knavery. All a man ran get by lying ami dissembling is that lie shall not be believed when he speaks the truth. — Mr inti;/tie. Injury. A little wrong done to another is a great injury done to ourselves. The severest punishment of an injury is the consciousness of having done it, and no man sutlers more than he that is turned over to the pain of repentance. Pity and Scorn.—He that hath pity on another man's sorrow shall be free from it himself; and he that delighteth in and scorneth the misery of another, shall one time or another fall into it himself.—Sir Waller Raleigh. Facts.—W eigh not so much what men say as what they prove, remembering that truth is simple and naked, and needs not invective to apparel her comeliness. Reading.—it is manifest that all govern ment of action is to he gotten by knowl edge; and the best by gathering knowledge which is reading.—Sir R. Sidney. Promises.—It would be more obliging to say plainly we cannot do what is desired, than to amuse people with false words, which often puts them upon false measures. Trf.ai heky.—There cannot be a greater treachery than first to raise a confidence and then deceive it.—Spectator. Honesty and Justice. He is only worthy of esteem that knows what is just and honest and dares do it—that is master of his own passions, atul scorns to be a slave of another's. Such a one. in the low est poverty, is a far better man, and merits mere respect than tiiose gay things who owe all their greatness and reputation to their rentals and revenues.—Dr. Fuller. ••Jit1 knows not hov- to fear who dares 10 die.” Tai.kim:.—Tin* best rules to form a voting man are, to talk little, to hear much, to reflect alone upon what has passed in company, to distrust one's own opinions, and value others that deserve it.—Sir. W. Temple. Charity.—Nothing eaa atone for the want of modesty and innocence: without which beauty is ungraceful and quality contemptible.—Spectator Dowry.—The best dowry to advance the marriage of a young lady is, when she has in her countenance mildness, in her speech wisdom, in her behavior modesty, and in her life virtue—Teuton's Epistle. Dress.—The plainer the dress with greater lustre does beauty appear. Virtue is the greatest ornament, and good sense the best equipage. Government.—The surest way of gov erning, both in private and iu a husband and a prince, to yield at certain times something of their prerogative.
