" Get what you can, and what you get hold,

“ "Tis the stone that will turn all your lead into gold.". And when you have got the philosopher's stone, sure you will no longer complain of bad times, or the difficulty of paying taxes.

Iy. This doctrine, my friends, is reason and wisdom : But, after all, do not depend too much upon your own industry, and frugality, and prudence, though excellent things; for they may all be blasted, without The BLESSING OF HEAVEN; and therefore, ask that blessing humbly, and be not uncharitable to those that at present seem to want it, but comfort and help them. Remember Job suffered, and was afterwards prosperous.

And now, to conclude, “ Experience keeps a dear

school, but fools will learn in no other,” (as Poor Richard says) and scarce in that; for, it is true,

We may give advice, but we cannot give conduct:"" However, remember this, “ They that will not be coun

selled, cannot be helped ;” and farther, that “ If

you will not hear Reason, she will surely rap your “ knuckles," as Poor Richard says.

Thus neighbour Wiseman ended his harangue. The people heard it, and approved the doctrine-and immediately practised the contrary, just as if it had been a common sermon; for the Auction opened, and they began to buy extravagantly.--I found the good man had thoroughly studied my Almanacks, and digested all I had dropped on these topics during the course of twentyfive years. The frequent mention he made of me must have tired any one else; but my vanity was wonderfully delighted with it, though I was conscious, that not a tenth part of the wisdom was my own, which he ascribed to me; but rather the gleanings that I had made of the sense of all ages and nations. However, I resolved to be the better for the echo of it; and, though I had at first determined to buy stuff for a new coat, I went away, resolved to wear my old one a

little longer,

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you will do the same, your profit will be as great as mine.--I am, as ever,

Thine to serve thee,

RICHARD SAUNDERS.
