Henry W. Beecher To His Son.
You are now for the first time really launched into life for your self. You go from your father's house and all family connections to make your ow n w ay in the w r orld. It is a good time to make a new start, to cast out faults of w r liose evil you have had an experience, and to take on habits the want of which you have found to be so damaging. You must not get into debt. Make it a fundamental rule: No debt —cash or nothing. Make few promises. Religiously observe even the smallest promise. A man who means to keep his promise can not afford to make, manv. Re scrupulously careful in all statements. Accuracy and perfect frankness, no guesswork. Either nothing or accurate truth. When working for others sink yourself out of sight, seek their in terest, Make yourself necessary to those who employ you by in dustry. fidelity and scrupulous in tegrity. Selfishness is fatal Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Demand more of yourself than anybody else ex pects of you. Keep your personal standard high. Never excuse your self to yourself. Never pity your self. Be a hard master to your self; be lenient to everybody else. Concentrate your force, on your proper business; do not turn off. Be constant, steadfast, persevering. The art of making one's fortune is to spend nothing. In this coun try any intelligent and industrious young man may become rich if he stops all leaks and is not in a hurry. Do not make haste; be patient, Do not speculate or gamble. You go to a land where everybody is excited and strives to make money suddenly, largely and with out working for it. They blow soap bubbles. Steady, patient in dustry is both the surest and the safest way. Greediness and haste are two devils that destroy thou- sands every year. I beseech you to correct one fault —severe speech of others. Never speak evil of any man, no matter vdiat the facts may be. Hasty fault-finding and severe speech of absent people is not honorable, is apt to be unjust and cruel, makes enemies to yourself, and is wicked. It* by integrity, industry and well-earned success you deserve well of your fellow citizens, they may in years to come ask you to accept honors. Do not seek, do not receive them while you are young —wait; but when you are established you may make your father’s name known with honor in halls of legislation. Lastly, do not forget your father’s and your mother’s God. Because you will be largely deprived of church privileges you need all the nerve to keep your heart before God. But do not despise small churches and humble preachers. “Mind not high things, but con descend to men of low estate.’' Read often the Proverbs, the pre cepts and duties enjoined in the New Testament. May your father’s God go with you and protect you. Found at Fust. In the ear'y days of the fame of the poet Whittier, when already his name was widely known and honored, but did not yet com mand the almost universal recog nition it had won in his old age, a visitor to Amesbury occasionally had difficulty in finding where he lived. His house was in an out of-the-way part of the town, and his name- pronounced by country folk in two syllables instead of three —was not uncommon in the neighborhood. It is related that one admirer, after much search and many fail ures. made inquires of a rural old gentleman of venerable appearance, who seemed to take a kindly in terest in satisfying the querist, but suggested successively the dwellings of several Whitters, who proved on further description not to be the one. At length the old fellow remem bered with sudden enlightment that there was one Whittier more, and slapping his thigh, lie drawled with deliberate triumph: “Naow I’ve got him, sure. You must mean that old bachelor man that lives with an old-maid sister daown by the mills—lie’s a Whitcher, too.” And this “Whitcher,” a despised bachelor and an afterthought, was indeed the right one.—Youth’s Companion.
