WHAT SHALL WK READ?
Paul once stirred up Ephesus witl
some lively sermons about the sins o
that place. Among the most import
ant results of these sermons wes tin
faot that the citizens broughc ou
their bad books and papers and in j
public place made a bonfire of them
One of the wants of this cammunit;
ls a great bonfire of bad books am
newspapers. We have in this vicinlt:
enough of such fuel to make a bia/.
500 feet high. Take forth this trasl
and put it into the lire, and let lt b<
known In the presence of God ami
- angels and naen that you are going ti
ria your homes of this curse of prudi
gate literature. We believe it ls in
tended that the printing-press shall
be a means for the world'3 rescue and
evangelization. The great last battle
of the world will not be fuught with
swords and guns, but with types and
presses, a purified literature triumph
lng over and crushing out forever
that which is depraved. The great
est blessing that ever came to this
nation is that of an elevated litera
ture, and the greatest scuurge has
been that of unclean literature. This
last has its victims In all departments
of life. It has helped to till insane
asylums and penitentiaries. The
London plague was nothing to it.
"What boo'.;s and papers do you read?
A newspaper is onlv a buok In a
swllter and more portable sbape. In
selecting your papers do you make no
distinction between the tree of life
and the tree of death? Cherish good
books and newspapers. Beware of
the bad ones. Benjimin Franklin
said that thc reading of Cotton Math
er's essay on "Doing Good" molded
his entire life. May not the reading
of this Home Circle Column, crude
though it mayjbe, have an intluence
upon your children in molding their
lives while they are yet easily Im
pressed. Wo strive hard to keep the
columns of this paper clean and pure
so lt can be warmly welcomed into
the best homes of this community.
In our nest issue we will have some
thing to say abuut novel reading.
KOND OK CONTENTION.
As Individuals, as families, commu
nities and even as nations wo seem to
be coming more fond of contentions.
It is contentions more than auy other
one thing that takes from the Home
Circle its every charm. Kussia and
Japan at the present time are only
samples of the o .intention that can be
found in too many humes. In this
country where our blue skies are full
of robins and doves and meadowlarks,
we select as our national symbol, the
fierce and filthy eagle. In Great
Brltlan where they have lambs and
deer their symbol ls the merciless
Hon. In Russia, where from between
her frozen north ami blooming south
all kinds of beasts abide, they choose
as their smybol the growling bear.
So fond are we of contention tbat we
climb out through the heavens and
baptize one of the other planets with
tho spirit of battle and call lt Mars
after the god of war. Wo suppose
