Frome Dr. Doone WHAT KNOWLEDGE IS OF MOST WORTH.

BY HERBERT SPENCER.

Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library. A company of the wisest and wittiest men picked out of all civil countries, in a thousand years, have set in best order the results of their learning and wisdom.”—EMERSON.

“Will you go and gossip with your housemaid or your stable-boy, when you may talk with kings and queens, while this eternal court is open to you with its society wide as the world, multitudinous as its days, the chosen and the mighty of every place ard time? Into that you may enter always, in that you may take fellowship and rank according to your wish ; from that, once entered into it, you can never be outcast but by your own fault.”-RUSKIN.
