"Where sisters dwell >and 'ureters meet,  Quarrels should never come.'''  Be ambitious. Every ; b.i;  worthy of the name has an ao-  bition. If a farmer, he ought to  be ambitious to-have the best  farm in the neighborhood. If a  merchant, he ough to be ambitious  to have the most prosperous and  most popular store in the place.  If a baker, or a banker, or a saddler, or a butcher, or a shoemaker  or a barber, or a blacksmith, or  an hotel keeper, or a preacher, or  a printer; he ought to be ambitious to make the most of-his. business and stand at the head, and be  an example to others.
