May the tide of suffering, loss and un

new year, and give mankind surcease
from the dreary volume now encompass--
ing the world. Of a certainty, there is
always the happy old standard of the
superabundance of good to measure down
the dismal record of the year, but in the
holocaust of evil, very few of us ever

electrified American audiences by his
eloquence, was asked how he had ac
quired such a mastery of the English Ian
guage, anc replied that it was the result
of studying the Bible.

little interest to you, remember that there
are others and that the entire paper is
not printed especially for you. The very
thing that is dull and uninteresting to you
may be the one thing in the paper for
some other readers. There are whole
pages in the d lily papers that are of no
interest to us, but they are to others. A
paper which contained nothing but such
matter that would interest any one or
another of us. would have a limited number
