"Sammy, , the neighbors and, all my friends tell me I haven't an enemy in the world, and I believe I haven't. I want you tor understand why I haven't.

Samuel wept, as 'in duty boundl but grief and his handkerchief choked his ut terance, so he said nothing. ' - "It has always been ray policy," resumed the dying Smirk, "to avoid" giving offence to any one No matter what people said or did to me or any one elseright or wrong I have always endeavored to forbear and submit, wherever I could ; to be calm and cautious on all occasions, and to avoid the exhibition of anyrsign of resentment. Byllong experience in this course, I have found ; that by persevering to agree with everybody, skillfully, is a sure eventual guide to universal popularity." ; "But have you never had' any difficulty with any one?" . t '. ' "Not since I was twenty-one," said the dying man, gasping for" breath. "Reach me a little more water, and wet my lips. they are too parched to speak plain. There there," he added as his son. obeyed him ; "that will do, and you shall be initiated into my invariable, and- invaluable policy. Be deferential,! Sam, deferential, and control your temper, and flatter whenever you get a chance, have a bow, and a smile, and a word, -and- a shake of the hand for everybody, mark ! for everybody, and then you will get-abm'! : "But I mustn't be friendly to villains, must I?" i-f ' "Friendly ! humph ! be friendly to nobody, seem so. Villains: they compose two-thirds of the community, and are most influential, j As for the other third, tliough it is well enttugh to keep their good opinion they are ! only subordinate agents in the building up of a man. But don't get affronted with I them. Oh, no, Sam ; never do that ! Never kick a dog unless you are sure he hasn't any owner, then kick away, if you like.' Though his father ' was dying. Samuel could not help smiling at this language. "That's right," said the elder Smirk; "I like that. ' Smile again,, bam, smile a gain. ' By smiling I have gained many a friend. But be careful you don't smile at the wrong' time A smile is a powerful weapon, but it must be used with judge ment. "Do you know, Sara, why I was always such a favorite with the women : "No, father." "I was always careful, in the first place, to feel my way with women ; took care to understand their characters, their sentiments, their particular vanities and hobbies keeping my own ideas in the back ground, until I could coincide with theirs. I al ways .took care never to speak, disrespectfully of the sex. I never, in the presence of a woman, called a woman a "woman" or a "female,".! had but one name, ladies, for all the feminine gender. "How did you do when they differed, and asked your opinion : et a 'God blesi you for that, I'm mista ken., i never found it to fail." -"But a subscription V ' "Read the paper, praise the object, but say that you have just subscribed for more than you could afford for another object of a similar nature. ' If the applicant believes by this that you are in the charitable line, he will let you off, whereas, if you refused out and out, . without an explanation, he might abuse you behind your back. I have made r.iyclf a great reputation for benevolence merely by 'refusing to subscribe in this way. This is a queer world, Sam." . Here the old man was seized with a violent fit of coughing, which nearly took him uui oi uus queer worm. "I fear, father, that Ulkinir so much will be, fatal to you said Samuel. - "iso, no, . resumed his father. "I'm de termined not to die till I get through.

That s the way to do it, Sammy, that's the way to do it." "It is best, I suppose, to be some kind of a politician i inquired the eon. "By all means ; but take care and always be on the strongest side. You can, though, be rabid as a n&d dog in your views when nobody but your side ia present ; affect to be very liberal in your sentiments when you talk with thoso of an opposite political creed. Mankind love a liberal man ; and if you flatter your foes, you disarm them." "There's a good deal in that," observed Sammy, musinglyi reflecting upon the aaxy existing instances of its truth. That thcro is, responded tho.sick man nearly exhausted, and his lips as pale as asnes. "Double dealing docs well, will fix the flints of everybody.

"That was well done, father, said Sam, admiringly ; "and was that the reason you were elected to the Legislature i v "Yes," said the senior Smirk; faintly ; "I made a hit. .
