L knew a boy who was sent to school for the firot time at eleven years ol'age. almost as tali as you are now, but with- out knowing the alphabet. He did not idle much time in school, for he felt, how far he was behind even the little children Out of school he carried his primer in his cap, as ho worked for his father during the Jong summer morn ings and evenings, and when a moment ot leisure occurred he would pull out his book and study a line or learn to spell a word A boy like .that could not be kept long in a primer, so he was promoted from class to until, at the ag-e of til teen, he had mastered arithmetic, geometry, the outlines of Bcietice, and was enter- ing regularly into the study ot' Latin and Greek. He hud to leave school about this time to work for his own support, but he did not make this an excuse for neglecting his studies Though working hard alt day, Jie ap- applied himself to his books from six o'clock in the evening till eleven or twelve at night, then rose early iu the morning, so as to spend hours in study before going to work again. In this way he cultivated his mind and stored it with useful knowledge, which he hoped would obtain for him a better situation and a more important position. lie had no teacher at ail.

Verbs, Rules ol Syntax, All thU v issuc- accomplished during hi.' ivalks When he had attained to considerable proficiency in most of his other studies, he found that, on account of the f'orcei character of his education, he was quite deficient in spelling and local geogra phy. Well, to remedy this, he pur- chased the best school atlas ho could tind and studied it map by map for half un hour every morning, till he made himself as familiar with the names of places in the world as he Has with his own name Spelling he learned in a similar way, making it a special duty. When he entered college there was great surprise that he took a high place In- deed the general opinion was expressed when he presented himself fur exami- nation that he could not even enter But the Professor found that he knew a great deal, ahd so he uiovtd awjy from the most of his clnss 'Ihere i.s one Liiing in paiticular which this boy attended to.

None of these makes a centle- one of all of them together- I have known men of the roughest exterior who had bean all their lives to follow the plow and to look after horses, as thorough gentle- men in heart as any nobleman who ever wore a ducal coronet.

It is' B noble privilege which has bcrn siully prostituted and what I want to tell you is, that the humblest man who has the coarsest work to do, yet, if his heart be tender, and pure, and true, can be, in the most emphatic sense ol the word, a gentleman.'
