"What cveryou do, do it well. A job
slighted, because it isapparcntly unim
portant, leads to habitual neglect, so
that men degenerate, insensible, into
bad workmen.
"That is a good rough job," said a
foreman in our hearing, and ho meant
that it was apiece of work, notelogant
in itself, but strongly made, and well
put together.
Training the hand and eye to do
work well, leads individuals to form
correct habits in other respects, and a
good workman is, in most cases, a good
citizen. No onu need hope to rise
above bis present situation, who suf
fers small things to pass by unimprov
ed, or who neglects metaphorically
speaking, to pick up a cent because it
is not a dollar.

A rival to a cctain lawyer sought to
humiliate him publicly, by saying,
"You blacked my father's boots once."
"Yes," replied the lawyer unabashed
"and I did it well." And by his
habit of doing even mean things well,
he rose to greater.
Take heart, all who toil I all youths
in humble situations, all in adverse
circumstances. If it bo but to drive
the plow, strive to do it well; if only
to cut bolts, make good ones; or to
blow tho bellow, keep the iron hot.
It is attention to business that lifts the
feet high up on the ladder.

Judge Agnow has just delivered nu
opinion which settres 11 vexed qUi
tion, and, in our judgment, kikes tho
right ground on a 'subject involving
nothing more than a social right. Tho
npcal before the Court was mado as
to tho right of colored people to use
the street and railroad ours of the
Commonwealth, on which Judge Ag
new reversed the decision of tho loiver
court on the subject of tho rights of
colored passengers. Ilo says that if a
railroad company provide scots equal
in convenience, comfort and saltty lbr
the colored pursongers, there ia no law
which will enable them to refuse llto-e
seats and demand others. This is Re
publican doctrine enunciated by a Re
publican .Tud;o m il sustained by a
Republican colleague. It involves a
principal which nlii'cls the It led ric l ls

those rigid laws of the counting room
which regulate dealings between man
and man, and which make the coun
ting room as exact in all matters of
time and exchange ns a banking house
which ignore friendship, affection,
and all personal considerations what

enemies and aliens, and which make
an autocrat of an accountant, who is,
at the same time, strictly an obedient
subject of his own laws.

a perfectly harmonious element into
this grand system of business, and sub
mit himself to its rigid rules, ami to
maintain his position with perfect
integrity, and, at the same time, bo a
very bad man. To a certain extent,
he bows to ami obeys a high standard

He may take a selfish view of the
whole matter, but ho cannot be entire

to be influenced by the personal habits
which it enforces.
Some of the best business men I
have ever known. Men who have
acquired wealth by rigid adherence to
business integrity, who havesnmetimes
been deemed harsh, and hard by those
with whom they have had business re
lations, have shown a liberality and
generosity towards objects of charity
which have placed them among the
world's benefactors. Men who have
exacted the Lust fraction of a cent with
one hand, in the way of business, have
disbursed thousands of dollars with the
other in tho way of charity. Dr. Hol

a meeting and passed resolutions con
demning the action of Victor Eman

collected to be forwarded to Italy to
the United States Minister Marsh, to--gcther
with a letter thanking him in

neat as that of a "i'ond purieiit" wc

her fellow plan an elopement. The
next day-the old mail widteil upon the
young one, and addressed him thus:
"You're n fine, brave youth, and I

It was formerly the custom in Kn
laiid to appoint certain persons to ex
amine the liodies of tho dead, in order
to ascertain and report the cause of
1.11.1 . 1
death, otien persons were termed
"bodv-searehors." In the time of "the
great plague," in lfiGo, which swept
oil' upwards of one hundred and thirty
thousand people this important and
dangerous olliec was performed by the
"ehirurgeons, or surgeons, who were
allowed for each service twelve pence,

0110 of these "searchers," w no rvjoiccd
in the name of Snacks, found his busi

attend to it "alone. Ho agreed to
share the profits equally with any one
who would take an equal tharc in the
laborand the danger. Those who join
ed hi in were said to "go with Snacks,"
or, more briefly, "to go Snacks;" and
hence the phrase came to mean, "to di
vide the spoils in equal proportion," or
"to go shares, in which it has
become proverbial.
Jox says that if a man feels much
like getting married, yet imagines he
ought not to, the best remedy he knows
is to help one of his neighbors to move
a house full of furniture borrow
about nitic of his children and hear
them or)'. If that fails, build up a fire
of damp wood, when the smoke in tho
room is thickest, hire a woman to scold
him about four hours. If ho can
stand all these, ho had better get mar
ried the next day give L13 wife the
pants and be the "silent partner" in the
great firm of matrimony. The reme
dy is severe, but as every man is lia
ble to these things after he yokes him

this cradle of a world ; that venturing

our lives, for we arc not dead there is
nothing dead to speak of, and we only
go off seeking foreign countries not
laid down on the map we know about.
There must be lovely lands somewhere
