Parcnts with dull boys should
take heart. Dunce have done fair
Iy well in the world' after all. Sir
Isaac New ten, lor example, was
dunce, low in his class, and by no
means fond of study. Indeed, if it
istobelivcd.it was due to theun
amiable spirit of revenge that he
ever learned at all. The show
boy" of the school kicked him and
as a retaliation Issue determined
to beat ill lesson -, and succeeded;
but lie owed his success both then
and in later life rather to pcr-evcr
anee and persistence than to lliher
ent capacity. Oliver (iohlsinith
vv as pronounced a perfect idiot by
his schoolmates. They never tired
of leasing him. and he win for years
(lie butt of ridicule. A wond 'iful
amount, of patience was needed by
the oh! school dame, w ho al Lit
(liniied the alphabet into Ms uti j
willing mind. Sir WalterScot I wasj
nicknamed at school '-the great I
blockhead." Hut ton, the an'iquar -I
ian, was slow to learn, and details
his experience in his own way : "My ;
master,'' lie w rites, ' took occasion ,
to beat my head against the wall. '
holding it by the hair; but he never
could leal any learning into it.
Sheridan was introduced to school
by his mother, with ai. ajiology for
his dullness. Ada in Clark's father
called him a "miserable dance."
Dr. Chalmers w as put down by hi
teacher as an incorrigible block
head; and Cliatterton. unfortunate
ly, even in early life, w as dis inis
ed from school by his master as "toe
great a fool to learn."
Stopping His Paper.
Wo have recently liecii reminded
of a little incident in the life of
Horace (Irecly, Kditor of the New
York Trihuttv :
Passing down Newspaper How. in
New York City, one morning he
met one of his readers, who very
excitedly exclaimed :
Mr. i Irecly, alter the article you
published this morning. I intend to
stop your paper !"
'Oh no" said Cicely, "don't do
"Yes, sir, my mind is made up : I
shall stop the paper."
"Well, now . I do hate that might
ly ; let me persuade you out of it."
Hut the angry subscriber' was not
lo be appeased, and they separated.
Late in the afternoon the two met
again, when (ireeley remarked.
"Mr Thompson. I an; very glad
yon did not carry out your threat
t his morning."
What do you mean ?"
"Why, you said y on weie going
stop my paer."
-And so I did. I went to the of
lice and had the paper stopped."
"You are surely mistaken. I

his watching was oi vain. There
