book.s The worthless ones wore made to
bring in 11101103' ami not to be read. The
influence of these silent companions is
great. One's character is, to 11 coitaiu ex
tciil, determined 1.3- his reading. The
common novel unfits the mind for more
substantial (ood. This will be remem
bered by all, who have road, oven such as
Dickon's novels. On the contrary the
reading of George Elliot's novels have
an influence and training akin to that
produced b3' the study of mathematics.
Nnpolcon delighted in Ossion and Pin
lurch's Lives. Goethe was so taken with
Goldsmith's Vicar of Wnkofield, that hd
was not satisfied until he hud found a
family corresponding to the parson's fain,
ily in Goldsmith's description. Learn
what 11 man reads by prefoience, and you

an important part, as having caused him
to turn iiis attention to study and system,

Some one lias said the object of reading,
was to llud out what was in a book with,
out reading it. Edwin Whipple possesses
this power in a remarkable degiec. By
reading n few extracts from as many
different pages lie becomes master of the
contents of the book.
No rule, as rogatds tho number of books
to be read can bo laid down. Dr. John
son said: "Whilst you itnnd deliberating
what booh your son shall read fli t, an
other hoy has read both; tend anything
five hours a iluy, and 3011 will boon be
learned." Many eminent men have attri
butcd their succors to the fact that they
mustered one book. On the other hautL
men of such universal knowhdge, as Na

Were we to icatl ten hours ench day, for
seventy yeais, we could only ivad u miiuII
part of some libraries. From this will be
seen tho necessity of rending only repre
sentative books. The value of 11 book to
