I stop- "1 , u v horse lately where a great number of ople were collected at an auction of merchant’s sis. The hour of the sale not being come, v were conversing on the badness of the is; and one of the company called to a plain, .an old man with white looks, “Pray, Father Italian), what think you of the times ? Will t these heavy taxe* quite ruin the country ? r -lull wo be able to pay them ? IV hat Id you advise ua to?” Father Abraham 1 uii and replied: “If you would have my r, I will give it you in short, for *a word to wise is enough,’ as Poor Richard says.” K r joined in deuring him to spoak his mind, . gathering around him, he proceeded as fob friends,” said he, “the taxes are indeed very arr, and if tboee laid on by tho government err'die only ones we had to pay, we might re easily discharge them, but wo have many ms, and much more grievous once to some is. We are taxed twice as much by our lencsa, three times as much by our pride, and lime* as much byeur folly; and from these ^ the commissioners cannot eaae or deliver by allowing an abatement. However, let us riton to good advice, and something msy be a- for us; ‘God helps them that help them lives,’ aa Poor Richard says. 1. It would be thought a hard government should tax its people one-tenth part of their to be employed in its service, but idleness ns many of us much more; sloth, by bringing disesse, absolutely shortens life. •Sloth, like U, consumes fester than labour wears, while used key is always bright,’ as Poor Richard ys. ‘But dost thou love life, then do not [under time, for that is tho stuff life is made as Poor Richard says. How much more do we spend in sleep, forgot- p: that ‘The sleeping fox catches no poultry,’ i 'Tliat there will be Bleeping enough in tho ire, u Poor Richard says. "If time be oi all things the roost precious, .-ting time must be,’ as Poor Richard says, t greatest prodigality,’ since, as ho elsewhere ■11* ua, ‘Lost time is never found again; and what b call time enough, always proves little enough.’ t us, then, up and be doing, and doing to the pose; so by diligence wc shall do more with perplexity. Sloth makes all things difficult, industry all easy, and he that riseth late Lu-t trot all day, and scarce overtake his busi ly- at night, while Lasiness travels so slowly, t Poverty soon overtakes him. ‘Drive thy intvs. Jet not that drivo thee, and early to 1 and early to rise, makes a man healthy, talthy and wise,’ as Poor Richard says. TSo what signifies wishing and hoping for tier limes ? We may make these times better re bestir ourselves. ‘Industry need not si, and bo that lives upon Ivopo wi'1 die fast- “There are no gains without pans; then . Iiands, for I have no lands," or, if I have, are smartly taxed. “He that hath a trade J an estate, and he that hath a calling hath .£ca of profit and honour,’ as Poor Richard but then the trade must bo worked at, tie calling followed, or neither the estate the office will enable us to pay our taxes, •tare industrious weshall never starve; for, ; the working-man’s house hunger looks in ■ tares not enter.’ Nor will the bailiff or the stable enter; for Industrypays debts, while ' fair increaseth them.’ TV hat though you «lend no treasure, nor has any rich rcla * ltd you a legacy » ‘Diligence is the moth ofluek. and God gives all things to industry. =plow deep while sluggards sleep, andyou I have com to neO and! to keep.’ T\ ork Writ is called to-day, for you know not how ’■ you may be hindered to-moorow. “One y » worth two to-morrows,’ as Poor says, and further, 'Never leave tliat till w which you can do to-day.’ If you era servant, would you not be ashamed that bod master should catch you idle ?
