WILL IK SICCEU.
In nine cases out ot ten, no man's life
will be a success if he does not bear bur
dens in his childhood. If the fondness or
the vanity of father or mother kept h fab from
contact with hard work; if another al
ways helped him out at the end of his row;
if, instead of taking his turn at pitching
off, he moved away all the lime—in short,
if what was light always fell to him, and
what was heavy about the same work to
some one else ; if he has been permitted
to slurs till shirking has become a habit—
unless a miracle is wrought, his life will
be a failure, and the blame will not be
half as much his as that of weak, foolish
parents.
On the other band, if a boy baa been
brought up to c’e his part; never allowed
to shirk any legitimate responsibility, or
permitted to dodge work, whether or not
it made his back ache, or soiled his hands
until bearing heavy burdens become a
matter ol pride, the heavy end of the wood
his trom choice—parents, as they hid him
good-by may dissmiss their fears. His
life will not be a business failure. The ele
ments of success are ills, and at some time
and in some way the world will recognize
his capacity,
Take another point. Money is the ob
ject of the world's pursuit, ft is a legiti
mate object. It gives bread, and clothing
and homes, and comfort. The world has
uot judged wholly unwisely when it has
made tin: position a man occupies to hinge
comparatively more or less on his ability
to earn money,and somewhat npon the
amount of his possessions. If he is miser
ably poor, it either argues some defect in
his expenditures, or a lack of fitness to
cope with men in the great battle for gold.
When a country-bred boy leaves home,
it is generally to enter upon some busi
iness the end of which is to acquire prop
erty, and ho will succeed just in proportion
as he has been made to earn and save in
his childhood.
if ail the money he has had has come
of planting a little patch in the spring,
and selling its produce after weary months
of watching and toil, in the fall, or IVom
killing woodchucks at six cents a head, or
trom trapping muskrats, and selling their
skins for a shilling; setting snares in the
fail for game, and walkihg miles to see
them in the morning before the old folks
were up; husking oom for a neighbor,
moonlight evenings, at two cents a bush
el; working out an occasional day that
hard work at home lias made possible—
he is good tomako his pile in the world.
On the contrary, if the boy never earned
a dollar; if parents and friends always
kept hin: In spending money—pennies to
buy candies and fish-hooks,' and satisfy
his imagiued wants— and he has grown
to manhood in the expectancy that the
world will generally treat him with sim
ilar consideration, he will always be a
make-shilt; and the fault is not so much
his as that of those about him, who never
made the boy depend upon himself —did
not make him wait six months to get
money to replace a Lost jack-knife.
Every one lias to rough it at one time
or another. If the roughing conies in
boyhood, it does good; if later, when
habits are formed it is equaly tough; but
not being educational, is generally useless.
And the question as to whether a young
man will succeed in making money or
not depends not upon where he goes or
what he does, but upon his willingness to
do “his part,” and upon his having earn
ed money, aiul so gained a knowledge of
its worth. Mot a little of this valuable
experience and knowledge the country
boy gets on the farm, under the tutelage
of parents shrewd enough to see the end
from the beginning, and to make the labor
and grief of children contribute to the suc
cess of subsequent life. [Hearth and
