A man'can no more tako in a sup

draw upon God's boundless stores of
grace from day today as wo need it.
God's best gifts, llko valuable Jew

The Newspaper Habit.
The circulation or books In a cer
tain Connecticut library foil off over
0,000 since last year, and tho libra
rian says It was because "popular
interest in current ovonts wns so
great that nowspapors wero read
rather than books." It was against
this tendency that tho Rev. Dr.
Greor spoke at tho Episcopal Con
ference at Minneapolis, when ho
deprecated tho "newspaper habit."
Dr. Greor's point is not wolf taken.
If the Amorican peoplo perused
fewer novels nnd other books, lust
year, because thoy woro busy fol
lowing tho fresh mado history of
tho Spanish war, it is a fact for con
gratulation rather than for rcgrot.
It is a henthful sign thnt tho read
ing public tends more nnd more to
keep in closo touch with the public
events. Tho bano or tho old stylo
or education wns that It kept its
students delving in tho musty past
whilo thoy remained ignorant or tho
history that was maklngberoro their
ees. Thcro 1$, no longer such a
thing as njjreat man who does not
read newspapers. Tho "newspaper
habit" Is ns necessary ror good and
intelligent citizenship as the "eating
habit" is for good health. In both
enses the only thing to avoid is
slothful consumption or gluttony,
with tho consequent indigestion.
Tiie only vicious "nowspaper habit"
is tho habit of dwadllug over a pa
per with lazy and indiscrimlnnting
mind. Such a habit Is Injurious nnd
wasteful of time, but it is more
likely to bo contracted In reading
novels than in reading newspapers,
As long ns tho mind is alert and tho
