A decision has ieeenrly been reudi rod by a jndgeof the supreme CO :rt of Pennsylvania, as to the., qu?l fications of jurors who have read newspaper reports of crimes, which they are called to pass upon, and tue rule commonly insisted upon has been reversed. In other words, the judge wisely decided, that intelligence is one of the most essential qualifications of jurors, in stead of the stupidity aud igno? rance which usually have commend? ed them, as suitable per.^ons to act in that capacity.

Easy Places. It scorns nothing but nntnral, says the. editor of the St. Louis Miller, for every person, man or woman, to think the position they oeenpv is just a little bit worse than that of any one else. And I hey imagine that it' they con Id only exchange places with some one oKo, what a relief it would be. M ich of the worry and fret tin? in lifo is caused by a desire to secure an easy place. Success is only obtained by earn est effort. And this implies hard work of sotne kind. And when yon are doing hard work, yon cer tainly cannot be considered as having found an easy place. It is those who do not make a success that are always on the lookout or hunt for an easy place. And after they find themselves in positions where a little earnest effort would considerably improve their condi? tions, rather than make the effort they allow themselves to make an easy place for their individual coin forr, and let the chance slip. Many a young man, in an effort to find an easy place, has allow...
