Iiis "advice to' a young man" applies equally well to the human animal in other and older stages of life. Read lo-whe puts it: Remember, son, that the w?rhl i? older than you are, by several years; that for thousands of years it has been so full of smarter and better young men than yourself, that their feet stuck out of the dormer win dows; that when they died Mio old globe went whirling on, and not Ono man in ten million went to the funer al, or even heard of the death. Be as smart as you can, of course. Know as much as you can, without blowing the packing out of your' cylinder head; shed the light ofyouV wisdom in the world, but don't daz zle people with it, and don't imagine a thing is so, simply because you say it is.- Don't be too sorry for your father because he knows much less, than you" do; remember the reply of Dr. Way land to the student of Brown University, who said it was an easy enough thing to make proverbs, such as Solomon wrote.
