Press Club Bible
Stolen ; Intent of
Taker Held Best
There is a meaner thief than the
man who takes pennies from tho
Irat of a blind man.
He is the person who stole tho
Bible from the library of the Na
tional Press Club.
There is a well-founded assump
tion, however, that the man did
not really mean to do wrong. It
is believed he was a newspaper
man, who never before had seen
the hook, and took it home to read
it before going to bed.
Those who have been sending
Ribles to the heathen may find an
opportunity to replace the one
missing at the Press Club.
