necessary to a symmetrical Un- less these deficiencies arc corrected and unless measures of sanitary police are which will free us from the unsightly and attendants above referred to ton strike the curious observer as a splendid dream which has been deoly interrupted in its course by tho horrors of nightmare It is madness to imagine that this or any other city can be at- once in a state of chronic foulness nent salubrity The laws of health are the laws of nature They caa not be disregarded with immunity by any individual or by any city full of A city DO move than an vidual can be

epidemics j While this fact is one of the secrets of ts rapid growth its rapid growth is he chief reason of its present situation But there are no difficulties We have a competent and faithful health officer and an able medical faculty Timely measures adopted at their suggestion could hardly fail to put the city m good preparation far the coming But to make them or all emergencies the health officer should have the largest discretion and tbe amplest power head of- our sanitary police This TTC can confidently count upon another healthy summer the mere commercial value oi which would bo worth many million dollars To sum up a successful stable sanitary police would mean the healthfulness of tho and its established fame as a safe at all seasons to visit to live in and do business in All these conditions would mean accelerated growth improvements and every mauner of prosperity And they arc entirely attainable by prudent forethought and energetic action Tlie The want of funds to pay the rent expenses has compelled the Board of School Trustees to close the public schools This action though sary is sincerely to bo deplored The law oC the State now in force requires the public schools to be kept open four months in the year They been open one month over this time and arc only closed because the Trustees can not see their way to defray ex- penses for a day longer and will be

reading for you Before doing so let me teach you a few truths which aud ex- have taught me It IH important in every to cultivate your body as to cultivate your mind amount of mental will for tbe lack of a elastic healthful physical I shall have accomplished tuy if you will take my word for it that you ve H in your power in a great to make and keep your body and healthy To thin end plenty of sleep open air and are tbi only you need to consult naa flow directly the It must have rest like any organ Make it a purt of your religion never to food more than three u day and never to auy article of food which you have found to be You insist be your own-judgy oC What you ought to eat requires aa much careful consideration as what you ought to read You must depend on habit quired little by little to make any of life you raay to adopt AG to you Should you over give way to despondency aa to acquiring any de- sirable habit remember that by dint of perseverance loarn to uee tobacco and drink and to be unhappy without them you are likely net for yourself can be equal How you lead ia quite aa important as what you read Moat people wasto all the time they spend ia reading Mental dyspepsia is almost as common a as physical dyspepsia and ia brought on ay the same means viz by devouring more food and more rapidly than it cau be digested The re rapid re is r o greater error than to read many books except it be to read hurriedly and without panne la not retained ia the memory is lost and memory depends on the amount of at- tention bestowed and tho time a thought ia kept before the mind The power to Si tbe attention and to keep a thought the mind grows imperceptibly but surely by UBB then no book properly read unless you have made the tone tbe spirit tbe thought of the author your own Read no longer at one time than you feel a vivid interest in your book And let me insist that you keep Webster's or Worcester's bridged dictionary always at band and Jet no strange word pass without critical inspection We think in words and therefore to think clearly and to speak accurately you must know the exact meaning of words They ara in fact key to all knowledge By no means read aloud a short time every day with careful tion to tho one golden rule of elocution Head in the tone and manner in you would utter tbo game ments in conversation This practice will educate your ear aa well aa your tongue The cultivation of your voice in ordinary speech is altogether more im- portant to you than the vocal tics of the opera house Pan Cupid bath not in aU his quivers choice An arrow for the heart like a sweet Commit to memory some in prose or verse almost daily not by any means bat to give you facility and power of expression You will have reaped only a part the fits of mental culture it you fail to quire the power of expressing your thoughts in just and appropriate guage and with a distinct dear well modulated la the selection of words avoid the temptation to bb line flowery and high-flown Good taste re- the star-spangled banner style in speech and writing as it in dress and manners I set out to you a mere Bong and have written almost a sermon conclude by giving you a few brief hints about books You cau nob go amiss if you will read only tbe works of the best authors Learn to love Shakespeare Addison Swift Goldsmith Johnson Sheridan Burns Wordsworth Moore Walter Scott Bulwer Dickens Macaulay Thackeray Tennyson Washington ing and you may then well lay claim to haying a finished education I have mentioned only a few of the great of literature ani have purposely omitted one of the greatest of them all because Lis Don the highest effort of his genius should not be read by you at all I especially recommend Byron's letters as the best model I know for your epistolary style Study these letters until you have learned the secret of their indescribable charm and strive to make it your own to a ful fluent simple diction excellence ia the useful and desirable acquisition for a lady Never permit to read a novel unless it is from the hand of tbe great Masters then read it as you read Before entering upon a of history it would be but proper for you to read the anes of the noted historical characters I have barely touched the subject but at some future time T will give you a liet of my favorite books and in the order in which they should bo taken up I am
