An exchange in speaking of evory
one depending ou himself says: That
old adage, let every tub stand on its
own bottom, is ono that will hold
good in all things. Self reliance is
one of the principles upon which tho
theory is ioundod. We like to see a
man self-reliant, resting upon and
trusting to his own resources. With
most men there are distinct individ
ualism which when properly directed
is a noblo and admirablo attribute of
their natures. Poisons bolstered up
by others all their lives are seldom
good for anything in a crisis. Outside
help is man's greatest curse. It
stifles aspirations and effort and en
ergy. A good maxim for evory youth
of our land, would be: For success in
this life, rely chiefly upon himself
aud bis own independent energies.

Like thorns in your prosperity are
your poor relations. They aro always
cropping up at inopportune times, and
they are forever basking in the reflect
ed light of your greatness and your
social prominence. They como to
your funerals and presume ho mingle
their tears with yours; they oven
spend their money for flowers. Thoy
call you by 'your given name and they
nsmo, their children after you. They
have so many children.
Poor relations have no conception
as to relative values, they havo such
extravagant tastes. Thoy like beef
steak with butter-gravy on it, and
they like extract in their pudding
sauce, nnd thoy like to go tho matineo.
No wonder they are poor! Thoy havo
an eye to your apparel, and thoy won
der how soon you will pass it oyer to
them. They even liko silk linings.
Tiioy happen in at meal-lime with
their fulsome appetites, and when yon
have company too, and they never
know enough to go homo; ' and then
they ask for tho second plato of soup.
Poor relations have such a good diges
tion. If thoy are not too poor to
havo aspirations they contrive to give
their children a few lessens in music
and elocution, thereby encouraging In
thorn tastes away beyond their sphere.

Then their children grow up and
aro good looking and oven happy,
and they nil paddlo about ou the sea
of life in their leakyold craft of mis

Poor relations are a deadly nuisance.
