This paper aims to bring
the best reading to every fire
side. Reading is a great thing,
hut it makes a big difference
what vou read.
The Citizen brings, first of
all, the news not every tale
of crime or horror, but the im
portant news the news from
Washington and the State
cinit.il. from our soldiers in
far off islands, from our neigh
bors everywhere. For the
young folks we have a story
and a Bible lesson ;for house
wives, a few new ideas each
week which should lighten
their labors: for the farmer
some vaiuanie nuns which
will help him to make more
from his land and cattle.
We propose to get the bist
ideas that can be found on all
such practical and important
matters and pass them around
among our readers. The re
sources of Berea College are
not for its students alone. The
editor of this paper can at any
time step into the largest Col
lege library in the State, and
he has engaged several of the
most distinguished instructors
in the College to take charge
of special departments in the
paper. Those who arc visited
by The Citizen will know
what is going on in the world.
Every week it will tell them
something worth knowing.
The Citizen is pledged to no
farty. It is every man s friend,
t stands for the things which
benefit all temperance,
thrift, kindness, enterprise,
and education. And we ask
all who believe in these things
to subscribe for The Citizen.

Seeing that some of my old school
mates are making reports from their
various summer homes it seems to me
that I would break no rules of my
timidity by writing a fow lines for
that paper of which Kontuckians and
thoir friends are, and of a right ought
to be, proud Tub Citizen. Your
correspondent is spending his vaca
tion at Moody's Bible School, corner
of La Salle and Chicago avenue, Chi
cago, III. We have some three or four
hundred students from various parts
of the world. The school is deeply
spiritual. This in manifested in the
song service, in tho prayers, in the
school work and in the godly con
versation of faculty and students.

have a "lunch."
Chicago is a groat place for soup.
You can find "soup houses" and "free
soup" signs in several distriots. Soup
was the first diah your correspondent
tasted at the "Institute. But soup is
not the only dish wo have. Many of
the vegetables and fruits which Ken
tuokians enjoy are fouud on Chicago
Among my new made acquaintan
