Honor thy father and mother, particularly about cirous-time, when you don't know where to raise twenty-five cents. Never run in debt when yon can avoid it. It is better to go snubbing around in a broadcloth coat than to be in debt to your tailor for a suit of Scotch mixed. Love thy neighbor as thyself. Borrow his ploxigh, hoe or horse whenever yon can ; but il he -wants to borrow yours, teil him that yon are sorry, tha you -were just going to use them yourself. Be guarded in your conversation. Thore are times when you may freely expresa your opinión on a political candidate, but you had better wait until his friends are over in the neit county visiting. Kespeot oíd age.
