Power belongs only to the work ers; the idle are always power less. It is laborious, painstaking men who are the rulers of the world. Perseverance is the best school for manly virtue. The greatest misfortune of all is not to be able to bear misfortune. Method is the very hinge to bus iness, and there is no method with out punctuality. Idle moments are the openings through which the temper finds readiest entrance with the citadels of the soul. If a man be gracious to strangers it shows that he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no is land cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins them. Mutlnni is more penuriousness, nothing more anxious than care lessness, and every duty which is hidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at is back. T.:day is a king in disguise.

"When you first came to see me you stood under my window with a guitar and serenaded me," said Mr. Pro8y's wife. 'I remember that I haven't time to do so now. But I'll tell you what I'll do. Just let me know what hour will suit you and I'll pay a piano wagon to come around and play all you like."
