A newspaper is nlwa3's printed In n
rush, says The Nexe Yerk Sun. There Is
always something in it that should be left
out; something left out that should have
been put iu. It is sometimes tee quick te
act, but with all its faults aud shortcom
ings there is mere education in a bright
newspaper than there is in any novel.
Yeu will find the brightest boy en practi

"I've get nn item for you!" exclaimed
tn excited individual as he rushed into
the Foreign Missionary editor's den yes

"Why, I've Just been rending The

France practically pays out nothing but
silver, and geld cannot be drawn from a
hank in Hamburg under three days. Tb
Bank of England habitually pays out,,
