proof was positive he sentenced the boy to months in the House of Correction And for what For taking a single stick of wood from a man worth thousands who had refused to give the boy a slick to keep

and then a little and to lead a very life of it The latter portion of their project we should like very well but we never found a very easy seat in the chair editorial In first place you must not only know how to sny no bat must say it In the next place you must offend many people and often arid in the third place you must learn thai the less you caie aboul such things more will care aboul you As there are in this country just embarking or embarked in the the room His sister still shivered beneath the quilt and going to brother soon had a fine fire blazing on tbe hearit This done his arose

rules lo guide them which if they will observe and if they have the mind and energy and quickness requisite for editing a paper will them al the top of the ladder The first and golden rule we give in

advantage Hii heavy and quick right in the eyes first blind your opponent ihen him and after- wards you may lift him up and if he worth anything will if worth nothing 7011 will be rid of Tbe thud is you aee a long rambling article t ou want the reml matter tbe reml ui ri that you pore put fourth ht oat of it and puffs parings of the rule is Make Money And so is the tenth With these rules duly observed you may depend upon it you will become one of the great editors of the country fit to command sure to be obeyed But you must be sure lo mind every one of them you must be sure to be independent of all else you must be sure your con- duct these lifts and braces alone Then if you get on a lee shore you can scratch off If you gel a fair wind you will be ready to crack on all soil
