Take two such cases and ex

"Why don't ou run a news

said to a reporter the other day,
throwing out a Chicago daily.
"For the same reason you don't

building. The groceryman look

said: "I never looked at it in

The Governor of the Danish

quietly reads a paper each day,
just as though it was fresh from
the press. lie is sometimes
strongly tempted to peer into
futurity by reading some papers
ahead when he comes across in
teresting news; but he resists
the temptation, no matter how
anxious he is to know the fate of
some measure. One day's paiier
j for each day is his rule: and so
at the end of the year he is thor
oughly familiar with the news of
the preceding year. He says he
