Philip Hale recently miggusted i!iat
modern readers would be materially
assisted from tho tyranny of tradi
tion If a distinguished coterie of men
'like Mr. IIowcIIb, Mr. Chesterton, Mr.
Shaw and Dr. Eliot would draw up a
list of tho "25 worst books." A
writer in tho Providence Journal un
dertakes the task, as pride and pre
tense to professing admiration for
books they nover read and never in
tend to read. This writer in ills list
names "Pnradiso Regained," "The
Faerie Quecno," "Wutthcrlng
Heights," "Aurora Leigh," "John Hall
fax," "Hytfatkla," and soveral other
books that people today care nothing
for, but for which great admiration is
confessed simply because their past
fomo makes present readers afraid or
UBhamed to ndmlt ignorance of them.
Senator Hoar once admitted that
often ho preferred "Old Sleuth" to his
classic Greek volumes. Other great
men make no secret of their reading
"bad books" for diversion. A list of
"worst books" swbrn to by men
'whose opinions carry weight would
create a greater freedom and boldness
'among those misguided folk who draw
up lists of "the world's best books."
iAnd in due season a natural man
Imlght And in such lists some of his
iroal favorites, instead of the dull,
dead volumes that are now included
;not on merit, but by reason of the
ipower of tradition.
Robert Raikes, tho man who found
ed tho modern Sunday school, was a
'Journalist, with a passion for what
bo termed "botanizing is human na
ture," and seems to have had very
lllttlo in his makeup of tho conven
tional religious reformed. His great
'experience, is said to have been sug
gested by the disturbance caused by
crowds of little ragamuffins playing
'beneath his window on Sunday after
noon when he was correcting proofs.
"Why Bhould they not be got together
And taught the elements of reli
gion and good behavior?" he asked
himself, and answered the question by
establishing tho first Sunday school
at Gloucester in 1870, says the London
Chronicle. It was characteristic of
the man that in his school scheme he
ilaid as great stress .upon the Incul
cation of "manners" as on tho teach
ilng of the catechism.

To sleep perhaps to dream. Most
of us have our special form of bad
dream, born of ill advised and ill di
gested supper usually. The common
est of the smaller nightmares is the
experience of facing a drawing room
ox a public thoroughfare without
clothes. But I suppose wo all have
our special horror on tho edge be
tween sleeping and waking, says a
writer in the London Chronicle. My
own is the belief that I am In for my
finals at Oxford and hare not yet
looked at Aristotle, and simply can't
get Into the time at my disposal.
And when I really wake to tho cer
tainty that I have passed all my ex

that Is the most joyous moment of disillusion.

HEATH OF MRS. ROBINSON
YOU CAN'T EARN MONEY
WHEN YOU'RE LAID UP
There are a lot of people in this
town who cannot afford to be sick.
Perhaps none of ;ou feel that you can,
but certainly some of you can't, for as
soon as you are sick, your wages stop
and worry and debts begin to pile up
The sensible thing for you to do, as
soon as you feel run down and worn
oat, no matter what the cause, is to
take something just as quick as you
can to build up strength and health.
Muke yourself more comfortable and
provide against serious sickness.
We don't believe there is any other
medicine made that will do as much
towards saving your health and thus
helping you save your money as
Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion. It is a med
icine that gets right at the trouble and
relieves it by toning the nerves, enrich
ing the blood, and giving new strength
aud health to the whole body. It
doesn't do this by means of alcohol or
habit-forming drugs, because it con
tains none. Its strength and health
giving power is due to pure Olive Oil
and the Hypophospbite, long endor
sed by successful physicians, the one
for its food value, the other for its
tonic value. Here, for the first time,
tbey are combined, and the result is a
real nerve, blood and body building
medicine a real strengthener that
we are proud to tell you about. You
don't need to hesitate in using it, be
cause if it doesn't do all we say it will
and satisfy you in every way, it will
coat you nothing, If it doesn't make
you strong and well again, come back
and get you money. It will be given
to your without word or question.

Among tho American peasants the
old patriarchal system prevails. The
entire family of a score or two of peo
ple of several generations lives be
neath a single roof, says the Christian
Herald. Together both men and wom
en till the fields In a primitive man
ner, and when the grain is ripe, they
take a sheaf to tho roadside that the
passing stranger may give a present
and thus bless tho crop. Their houses
are of stone roughly laid, or of mud,
or frequently they are half under
ground, and from a distance their
domelike roofs resemble the mounds
of a pralrlo dog settlement.

Before You Move
Be sure your new home has that important modem
convenience electric light. There are many such
and they are in great demand by those who know
how to enjoy them. The modern electric light is so
much better than any other that no one need hesi
tate about the cost. The General Electric Com
pany has perfected its MAZDA lamp which gives
twice as much light as ordinary electric lamps using
an equal amount of electricity.
We Have G.E. MAZDA Lamps
For all those who live in wired houses we offer an
opportunity of getting the benefit-of the great light
giving quality of these lamps. For those who own
unwirea houses on our distnbuting lines we will give
advice of value in wiring houses for electric light.
