An exchange says: "Talk about
your moral ways, but an epidemic of
common honesty betwvoon man and
man is what the country most needs.
This way of scowling like a thunder
storm at the more open sins, while
man's business obligations to his foi
low man are disregarded is not even
philosophy." There is not in all the
books a more solid chunk of wisdom
or decency than is contained in this
paragraph, and we hope every one of
the dead beats that we have had to
drop from time to time because they
