n6 TREASURY OF TABLE TALK.

Temper.

A tart temper never mellows with age; and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use. Washington Irving.

A Happy Union.

Quin used to say, that of all the banns of marriage he ever heard, none gave him so much pleasure as the union of delicate Ann Chovy with good John Dory. This sentiment was worthy of such a disciple of Apicius. Hone.

The Proper Study Of Mankind.

Omit a few of the most abstruse sciences, and mankind's study of man occupies nearly the whole field of literature. The burden of History is what man has been,—of Law, what he does,—of Physiology, what he is,—of Ethics, what he ought to be,—of Revelation, what he shall be. Finlayson
