To tbose who know how to turn time to advantago, every minute has an applicable peuuniary vahie ; minutes, even, aru worth so much apiece He who robs you of them might just aa well take so ïnuc.h tnonoy frorn your purse. The act is petty larceny or grand larceny, according to tbe amount of timo be compels ycu to wasto, and the value of it, at a fair appraisal, to yourself or family. The only capital of a large portion of community is time. Their compensation is measured by the clock. The moments of which prornisebreakers cheat ihera may represent in fact the necessaries of life, and tho loss of an hour may involve the privation of a loaf, or a joint, or some otber article urgently needed at home. Nobody places confidence in persons habitually behind time. They scarcely succeed in any enterprise thoy undertake. - Tberefore for your own sake as well as for the sake of others, be punotual.
