It seems to be hard to keep a man
Christian for the year 'round. Al
most any fellow will count himself
worthy at the high peaks of the pro

he soon joses Tiis vnspiration when
the music starts up and temptations
begin to roll along.
So far as the liquor question goes,
too many good dry fellows drink
themselves. They seem to have a
low conception of their duty to live
up to their professed beliefs. How
ever, one of the greatest hindrances
in the way of liquor-law enforce

Public Library a Great Opportunity
The public library is a great op
portunity; a college without entrance
fee or examinations; a club without
dues; a society of the best minds
where no introduction is needed; the
most democratic institution possible.
It serves all purposes of civil life,
industrial, social, religious and rec
. reational. It is available 12 hours
out of the 24, every forking day.'
It assists the education of the young
and completes that of the adult. It
enables those lacking knowledge to
become the equals of those more for
tunate. It is truly American, pre
senting to the citizens and the immi
grant our history, and the ideals of
our government. It is cosmopoli
tan, because it houses the works of
all nationalities, either in the origi
nal or in translations, and is thus
an admirable substitute for foreign
travel and intercourse.
It is hospitable to all theories of
life, and upon its shelves may be

and achievement from the earliest
times to the present. In contributes
