Mow to be Nobody. —It is easy to be taobody, and we will tell you how to do it. Go to the drinking saloon and spend your leisure time. You need not drink much now ; just a little beer, or sonic other drink. In the meantime play dominoes, checkers, or something else to kill time, So that yon will be sure not to r;ad any useful book. If you rend, let it be tho dime novels of the day. Thus go on keep ing your stomach full and your head empty, and yourself playing time-killing games, and in a few years you'll be no body, unless (as is quite likely) jou should turn out a drunkard or a professional gambler, either of which is worse than a nobody. There are any number of young men hanging about saloons, billiard-rooms and other rum shops, just ready to grad uate and be nobodics. ,. ■ 1 r~ ——-•—;-_ The St. Louis Republican furnishes the following lucid biography : " Robert Dex ter, King of the New York Ledger and editor of the Turf.
