JNO. F. ELLIS Jan 96-tf * rilHE PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE OF -1 Henry Clay. 1 volume, octavo, 82 50 dec 24?tr FHANCK TAYLOR EVENING STAR. DYING ADVICE OF HO* MB 8MIBK Simon Smirk was on his death-bed. His son Samuel waa standing by his aide ; and while be was holding his father's hand, his father spoke to him as follows : " Sammy, I am dying?at the age of fifty five I wish you to pay striat attention to my dying advice!" "Father, I will." " And I wish you to follow my advice after I am dead." " I will, father." Sammy, the neighbors and all my friends tell ma 1 haven't an enemy in the world, and I believe 1 haven t. I want you to under stand why I haven't. It's all owing topoli cy, Sam ; policy, and nothing shorter. When I was of your age, my boy, I was as poor as a broken down village horse, turned out to die. Age has at last broken me down, but I aint poor, tbank policy ! Follow my example, and you will become richer by far than your father, Sammy, and die without an enemv. as I do." ' Samuel wept as in duty bound, but grief and his hankerchief choked his utterance, so he sail nothing. ''It has always been my policy," resumed the dying Smirk, " to avoid giving ofience to any one. No matter what people said or did to me?or any one else?right or wrong?I have always endeavored to forbear and sub mit, wherever I could; to be calm and cau tious on all occasions, and to avoid the exhi bition of any sign of resentment. By long experience in this course I have found that by persevering to agree with everybody, skil fully, is a sure eventual guide to universal popularity." "But have you never had any difficulty with any ono ?" ?'Not since I was twenty one," said the dying man, gasping for (breath. " Reach me a little more water, and wet inv 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 inva riable 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 ex'try body?and then you will get along."' ^' But I mustn t be friendly to villains, must " Friendly ! humph ! be friendly to no body?seem so. \ ilia ins . they compose two thirds of the community, aod are the most in fluential. As for the other third, though it is well enough to keep their good opinion, they are only subordinate agents in the build ing up of a man. But don't get affronted with them. Oh, no, Sam; never do that! Never kick a dog unless you are sure he has not any owner, then kick away, if you like/' Though his father was dying. Samuel could not help smiling at this language. " That's right, "taid the elder Smirk; "I like that. Smile again, Sam; smile agaiu. By smiling L have gained many a friend. But be careful you^lon't smile at the wrong time. A smile is a powerful weapon, but it must be used with judgment." "Do you know, Sam, why 1 was always such a favorite with the women?'' "No, father." " I was always careful, in the first place, to feel my way with the women; took care to un derstand their characters, their sentiments, their particular vanities and hobbies, kee ping m> own idea? in the bask ground, until I could coincide with their9. I always took care never to speak disrespectfully of the sex. I never, in the presence of a woman, called a woman a 4 woman'or a 'female.' I had but one name?ladies?for all the feminine gen der." " How did you do when they differed, and asked your opinion *" " I would agree with one. and at tbe same time wink at tbe others slily, as much as to say ' 'tis all humbug, what I am saying.' If a woman was ugly, I'd praise her intellect. If she didn't know anything. I'd praise her virtue. In this way I seldom missed the mark; for it is very seldom that you find a woman that is ugly, immoral, and a fool in the bargain In fact, it is hard to find any body who hasn't some good point, or who isn't susceptible to flattery in some way or other; and a man must be a fool, who, determined to flatter, and make his flattery acceptable, can't seize hold of some merit, in mind, heart, form or face of the person he wishes to please, and feigning to admire it, make that person friend ly." " Must I be stingy, or liberal ?" " Oh, be liberal ?be liberal, by all means," said tbe dying man with a ghastly smile? " that is, in sentiment. Whenever a generous deed is done, exalt it to the skies. Alw iys praise generous people. Clap your hands for philanthropy, and then clap them in your pocket and keep them there."' "Suppose a beggar asks alms of me, or I am called on to contribute to some charitable ob ject?" " If any person begs, say ? certainly, my poor* worn an,' or ' my man.' or' my child,' and then quickly feel in your pockets. You will find no money, of course; but you must say, with a sigh, and a tear in your eye, if you can scare up one, *J 'm really ashamed to own it, but. unfortunately, I haven't a ccnt about me ' If you don't get a ? God bless you' for that. I'm mistaken. I never found it to fail." " But a subscription ?" "Kead the paper, praise the object, but say that you have just subscribed for more than you could afford, for another object of a simi lar nature. If the applicant believes by this that you are in a charitable line, he will let you ofl, whereas, if you refused out and out, without an explanation, he might abuse you behind your back. I have made myself a great reputation for benevolence merely by re fusing 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 out of thi.s queer world. ' i fear, father, that talking so much will be fatal to you," said Samuel. "No, no,'* resumed his father,''I'm de termined not to die till I get through. As I was saying, Sammy, this is a queer world, and you cau t get along in it without reli gion. ' "Without what!" exclaimed his son, in amazement, lie had never mentioned reli gion before in his life. " Without religion. Hiro a pew, by all means. Talk religion occasionally?you can get the hang of it. Profess?and practice when you are obliged to. But, at any rate, profess : it helps a fellow along in business. I got some of the most profitable customers and best friends by professing religion. Pew rent is no object when you come to think of that." " But if you belong to a church you will have to defend its doctrines; and religious controversies create enmity, don't they ?" "Sometimes. But whenever I found that I was getting into trouble on account of my religion, I was always careful to yield a point or two, smile in a Christiaulike way. and then back out of the scrape. That's the way to do 1 v. It is best, I suppose, to be some kind of a politician inquired the son. "By all means; bat take care and always be on the strongest side. You can, though, be rabid as a nad dog in your views, when no body but your side is present; affect to be very liberal in your sentiments when you talk with these of an opposite political creed. Mankind love a liberal man ; and it-you flat ter your foes you disarm them." "There's a g< od deal in that," observed Sammy, musing j, reflecting upon the many existing instances of its truth. That there is," responded the sick man, nearly exhausted, and hit lips as pal* as ashea.
