THB OLDEST PAPER OEEGON, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, AUGrUST 27, 1875- OVERWORKED WO.TIEJW I was in Bcrliu in tho autumn of 1872 when there was n meeting there of the emperors of Germany, Russia and Aus tria. Every preparation had been made for this convocation, among oth ers that of banishing from the streets all unpleasant sights. Yet on that oc casion, when Untcr den Linden was crowded with carriages and horsemen and well-dressed people, when Russia and Austria Were dashing about in open uarouencs, witn outriders before and guardsmen behind, and tho cvo en countered on all sides the bravery of military -niuiorms' and waving pen nants, i saw in a side-street a woman drawing a hand-cart laden with some heavy substance that was" nllcil tin to tho height of four or five fectnbovc the mils of the tart, Besides this poor. slave, who with all carried an inlant upon her back that could. not have been more than a few weeks old, strug gled a dog with whom she was har nessed to tho cart. Toor wretch! I thought, and tho husband recently dead, too! I could not think of her as a widow, for, in truth, she did not look human enough. She was not over thirty years ot age, but a coarser-look ing hag I never saw a picture of. Presently a man in crossing the street indulged in some pleasantry at her ex pense, when she threatened to call her husband to chastise him. Hnsbahd? Yes", sure enough, there ho was, walk ing leisurely behind the cart, with his hands in his pockets, smoking his pipe and gazing at the sights along' the route. LippincolCs Magazine.

Some dfslingnishcn writers have laid down a very- simplo principle for the guiuancoot ordinary readers. Kcad, they have said, good books and good books alone. Be familiar with the mas ters of thought.and preserve; vour mind from the trash of tho circulating libra ry. The motives' which prompt the advice are only too palpable. In days wncia large portion ol the population is more orless capable of reading, it Is melancholy to see that the 'effect is in one respect the very reverse, of what might have beeu hnpedt The greatest writers, though they may have posi tively a" larger audience, have relative ly a smaller audience, than ever. Their workt areqmshed aside by masses ol ciMieniural litonilm-f... nml ovi-n wlion roaifUiejMiro.rcad with little attentions llto mind becomes demoralized by the habit of desultory and -superficial study; and a man who reads at a gal lop, expects that Shakcspearo will yield np his secret as easily as the last new novelist. The greatest men arc dis tinguished from the little men in noth ing more than this, that the tenth or twentieth reading of their books is more fruitful than the first; whereas a modern reader is far too impatient, to give more than one audience to the most venerable of teachers. Nothing, therefore, is fnorc natural than to de nounce as a debilitating practice all study of inferior authors. Xifo is shorter man ever in proportion to what has to bo ciowdcd into it, and our minds nro not larger. Wo should, therefore, lay down immovable regu lations against tho invasion of distract ing influences. The time which we dawdle away over the valueless parts of newspapers would enable us to be come familiar with the thoughts of the wisest of men. If a man had to choose whether a few months hence he would be familiar with the insand outs ot the Tichborno case, or have made o careful study of all the Greek dramat ists, no reasonable being could hesi tate. In one case ho would simply have enjoyed a questional amusement which leaves no traces behind it; in the other ids imagination would have been stored with n perpetual sonrcc of delight. Yet hardly anybody has suf ficient foresight or resolution to sacri fice the temporary excitement in con sideration of the permanent advantage. The case, indeed is, up to a cer tain point, too plain to admit of argu ment. Everybody should have an in ner circle of friends ainons books, to which none but the really great writers should be admitted. So far as the r.ding is not a mere pastime, but a part of the cultivation of the faculties, it is only valuable, in proportion as it implies close and intimatu knowledge. No poetry is really woilh reading un less it is worth learning by heart. A man may say that ho has read Shake- spears sonnets it lie nas glanced through them as hqjniincvs tjirQngh.a TiHjyTiawTascinatfiirnis imagination ami sunk into his memory. Really reat books, in short, must he assimi Fatcd, and they scarcely begin to pro duce their true influence until we know thorn so well that actual refer ence becomes almost superlinous. it is clearly desirable that every man s'.innld have thoroughly absorbed some ot the masterpieces ot literature, as a true believer nbsoroes a dook oi rcn-- Hon.
