A Test of Memory.

A gentleman had so bad a memory, and so circumscribed, that he scarce knew whathe read. A friend, knowing this, lent him the same book to read, seven times over; and, being asked afterwards how he liked it,replied, "1think it is an admirable production, but the author sometimesrepeats the same things."
