Bibles For Hotels.
The Gldeoui, an organization of
Christian traveling men, hare for
mulated a plan to place a lllble in
the rooms of every hotel In the Uni
ted States. Of the elx hundred
thousand traveling men In this
country only about three thousand
are Gldeonn, but the organization is
eteadlly Increasing. It la the largest
mission society ever organized that
does Its work at Its own expense,
asking no help from the chnrches.
The effort to place lllbles In the
hotels throughout the country Is a
great work. Many a young man
aud young woman, far from home
tempted almost beyond their
strength, might be saved at a cru
cial moment if piven an opportunity
to read the living words of truth.
The public In general too often un
derates the morals of the traveling
man. The 01deon, aside from their
mission work, are doing much for
