Sve'y-Day Philosophy.
When weariness with life my spirit fills,
When deep digust comsumes me
with my lot,
I draw some comfort from the ills
I haven't got.
To find that fortune at your conllng
To be bankrupt in health, in fame,
in Purse,
Is bad enough: but I philosophize,
It might be worse.
Incessantly we make a great ado,
The mouth of misery's wide agape;
But happier we, I faney, if we knew,
What we escape.
The common woes of life are bad
Misfortunes as easy as the dew,
And, still, for every morning steak
that's tough
There might be two.
This one is sick; wayward fale cries
Against the leech, Ca'omel, the bed;
0, inconsiderate mortal, cease to pout,
You might be dead.
And this one hath a mitten; he lias
Vainly, alack! his woing it lias spred.
Well, even in this there's comfort,
rightly viewed—
He might be wed!
And here is one who whines; his all is
Away iu panics; he lias had to "fail."
He should, I think, be cheerful that
he's kept
Safe out of jail.
But late I lost a twenty-dollar bill;
And did 1 ring my hands, thnt I had
Not I, Indeed! I'm very thankful still,
'Twas not a hundred.
Sooth should 1 e'er capsize, when
walks are bad.
And my good clavicle invrlve in
Serenely I should" say: IIow very glad
It's not my neck.
Oh, trust me, better not make ado,
At the few miseries ot oui- common
. lot;
There millions of 'em, if we only knew,
We haven't got.

delightfully spent in the discussion of

It is said that the way to get the
most benefit from a book is to disagree
with the aijthor. If this is true, the
"Pathfinder?" got at least a few ideas
from the discussion. After this they
read and discussed "The Two Voices,"
by Tennyson. At fu-stit seems difficult
to get the author's meaning, but soon
it begins to unveil itself and the reader
is lost in its beautiful language and
more beautiful thought.
At the next meeting they will begin
the discussion of "MidJlemarch."

Solid and Safe Business Men.
The Corinthian in future issues will
have something to say regarding its
liberal advertising patrons. Corinth
merchants are solid, safe and progress
ive and know the value of a good ad
vertising medium. There are many
old landmarks here with whom the
people have for many years found sat
isfaction, profit and pleasure to deal,
and to them much credit is due for the
high business pT.ne that characterises
the city. Business lines are smooth
here and no injurious factions exist.
The principle of co-operation and ' live
and let live" is Well planted.
We Know This Will Strike You.
We find the following flodtiug around
among out exchanges aud commend it
to our readers as a bit of good advice:

is your duty to let us know, that
