The battle of life, in by far the greater
number of cases, muse necessarily be
fought up hill, and to win it without
struggle were perhaps to win it without
honor. If there were no. difficulties,
there would be no success ; if there were
nothing to struggle. for, there Ni'ol.llit be
nothing tolJe achieved. Difficulties ma'y
intimidate the weak; but they:lei) only as
a wholesome stimulus to nien , of pluck
and resolution. All experiences of life
serves to prove that the impediments
thrown in the way of human advance

zeal, activity, - perseveranee, and, above

While I was still lighting 'with the
difficulties of setting :up my office,. and
recommending Myself to connection, and
so forth;. I got a Message from Mr.

the banking house, no first time I was
passing that way:. As you may 'easily
imagine, I contrived to •be paSSing that
way on a particularly early occasion,
and, on presenting :myself at the bank,
I-was showii,at once 'into Mr. Fauntle
roy's privrite room.
He was as pleasant a man to speak to
as ever I met with—bright, and gay, and
companionable in his manner—with a
sort of easy; hearty, jovial bluntness

cum of an account. Ho had loceived
orders to pay my drafts with Ont rcferenco'
to my. balance. My cheeks, 'when I had
overdrawn, wore to be
,privately shown
to Mr. Fauhtleroy. Do many young
men- who start in business find their
prosperous superiors ready to help them
in that way?
Well, I got on—got on very fairly and
steadily, being Carotid not to venture
out of my.depth, and:not to forget that
small beginnings may lead in time to
great ends. A Prospect. of ono of those
great ends—great, I Mean; to such a
small trader as I Was

some little time in business. In plain
