Sumtiiino ov Small Insf.x—Such a a Mi-akef.tf.rs, Heaving Sosietys, and Gnats. I don't kno a/. I think it iz a very diffi cult thing tew be a good injun up in heav en, but, tew cum dow here and be a good injun, iz just wliare the tite spot comet in. Forgiving our cnetnys haz the tame re freshing efl'ekt upon our souls az it duz tew confess our sins. What a lamentable cuss man iz, he pittys hiz (labors’ misfortunes, by Calling them judgments from haaven. Wize men go thru this Avorld az boys go tew bed in the dark, whistling to shorten the distance “The gods help them Avho help them selfs.’’ Upon the same principle mankind praze thoze who praze themselfs. Falling in love iz like falling into molas sis, sweet but dreadful dobby. Hunters and gamblers are poor ekone mists, they kill time, a species ov game that kant be reproduced. Good breeding iz the art ov avoiding fa miliarity, and at the same time making the company satisfied with you aud pleazed , with themselfs. Tew be happy—take things az they cum, and let them go jist as they cum. It takes a great deal of money tew make ! a man riteli, but it don't take but little virtew. It iz the little things ov this life that ! plague us— Musketeers are plenty ; elephants skarse. ( What an agreeable world this would be tew live in ii we could pump all the pride and selfishness out ov it. It would im prove it az much az taking the fire and iirimstun out of the other world. Don't mistake plezzur for happiness; it iz an entirely diflierent breed ov dogs.— There iz a grate deal ov equisit plezzure in happiness, Imtther iz a grate deal ov plez zure that lias no happiness in it. There iz only one thing that i kan think ov now. that i like to see idleness in, and that iz. in molassis—i want molassis slow and eazy. Experience haz the same effect on most folks t hut age haz on a goose, it makes them tuffer. “Sett ing Susietys" are generally places Avhere the wimmin meet to rip and so—up the naborhood, A lazy man iz one who has no time to spare : an industrious man iz one who haz more time to spare than he knows what to do with. A lazy man always works harder than a bizzy one—the hardest work i kno of iz to grunt—it iz harder lew set still, andflte Hies, than it iz tew git up and escape from them. The man who controls his achuns sits at the helm ov his ship. It iz very diffikult tew kalkulate upon I suckoess, unless a man sets up for a pnool 1 —in this do]Hirtment i hev known hund reds to succeed, conimry to their expekt ashuns. 1 don't want tinny better evidence that a man iz e pliool than to see him cultivate exeentrieitvs. I 1 lie man win> can conceal niz real sar aktcr when he i/ drunk, or in a passion, 1 has got a giant karaktcr. I have tound out that happiness kousists ! in working bizzy 11 hours sleeping 8 hours, and playing checkures 4 hours, out ov every -l. Mankind loves mystery—a hole in the ground excites more wonder than a star in the heavens. “Experience is a good school master,” hut reason iz a better one. A Pedant iz a lernt phool—pedantry iz a little knowledge on perade—pedantry iz hypoerasy, without any malice in it. ' All the good men in this world have got the same kind of religion, it iz only the (Ted beats, frauds, and hypokrits, whose relig ion differs. Pride iz a looking-glass, into which men look, and seeing Ihemselvs, they strut, and stick up their nozc at other folks. How on arth can we trust man kind, or woman kind, when there aint one out ov ten o\ them dare trust themselvs. Adversity iz a goddess with trozen smiles. II i had the privilege ov making the Eleventh Commandment, it would be this —owe no man. Young ones and (logs!—those who are the least aide to support them, generally hav the most ov them. Sum lolks, az they gro older, gro wizer; but uost folke simply gro stubboruer. People travel to learn—most of them (before they start) should learn to travel. 1 don't believe in fighting; i am solemly ' against it; bill, if a man gits tew lighting, i i am also solemly against biz gilting licked. I After a light iz once opened, all the virtue , there iz in it iz tew lick the other party. Slander iz like the tin kettle tied to a dorg’s tale—a very good kind ov kittle, so long az it ain't our dog’s tale. _ _ ___ - -- LOOK AT THIS! No More Cracked Stove Tops!
