Hanging up the drive is a very serious matter to the busi ness men of Princeton, the hundreds of laboring men employed in the mills below, the men working on the drive, and the lumbermen themselves. The only way to put a stop to all this wrangling is for the legislature to in corporate a company, who'will put in a good damn, and drive all the logs on the river at so much per thousand tie scaler's nooks will show the Oiact number of feet owned by eachthus everyone would be compelled to pay for t. amount of logs they had to drive, then it.would be better for the men employed, for the men who own ed the lumber and all concerned.

Don't swell up and bunt If you have a good share of brains ypi$ won't do this you will remember that neither money, clothes, nor good looks make the man, and that true worth is as often garbed in a ragged coat as it is in- broad-cloth. Don't stand on hotel steps, dangling your watch chain and talking^hoss.'' Those who load themselves with- air* are the smallest kind of potatoes and the fewestin the hill. A fat job ofteft spoils youngmen of weakminds. They immediately commence to dress fine and take great pride in cultivating an aldeimanic corporation and a sporting air.

Therefore I say to every man: As for as you canpartly for excellence in your special mental calling, princi pally for completion of your end in existence strive while improvingyour one talent to enrich your whole capi tal as a man. It is in this way that you escape from that wretched nar row-mindedness whichb the character istic of every one who cultivates his speciality alone, in science, read by preference, the newest works in literature, theotyest. The classic literature is always mod ern. New books revive and redecor ate old ideas old books suggest and in vigorate new ideas. It is a great preservative to a high standard in taste and achievenjfent to take every year some one gr&t book as an especial study, notSly to be read but to be coned, studied, brood e,d over to go into the country with i^.iravel with it, be devoted faithful ly to it, be without any other book for the time! compel yourself to read it again and again. Who can be dull enough to pass long days in the inti mate, close familiar intercourse with some transcendant mind, and not feel the benefit of it when he returns to the common world? But whatever standari Jou, of mental ex- fctts form your study of the excellent never, if you wish let your standard make you intolerant to -any other defects but yourown. The sunsetsign of wisdom is charity and tne best charity is that which never ostentatiously parades itself as chari ty. ^For your idea of a man as he ought to be, always look upward but to judge man as he is, never affect to stoop. Look your fellow-men straight in th face. Learn all you possibly can and wheu you have learned that all, 1 repeat it, you wiirnever converse with any man wbo*does not know spmethiug worth knowing better than yourself.Bulwer.
