THE iATURBAY MORJVIJVO COURIBRV
OIVINO among the wickedness and
sin and iiolso and trouble ami
worry of this earth thorn are a
few people who twllovo that It la poesl
l.lo to attain a stato of holiness In thin
Hfe, and' who Imagine that they aro
leading perfect live Dlaelploa of
earthly hollneM aro not numerous; hut
thero are few communities whore thin
claea la not represented. Ami like moat
aKgreaalvely good peoplo, they aro vory

frail belnira, and wo haven't much use
for thl kind of goodness.
One man whom I know was taken 111
with r necullar form of rollitlon in hla
youth, and ho haa never roeovored f mm
tho attack, Its effect waa to leave him,
not with hla face itock.marked, or hla
hair fallen out, but with an idea that ho
ought to be what man can never lie thin

him to an ambition to become wholly

and made htm a bloodleaa, emaciated,
dreadfully unlntoreatlng person; aa cold
and unsympathetic n a pillar or marble.
Thia man haa just three ideas; to
work during the day, to be good, to read
hla Bible at night. He haa a conscience;
and this conscience I a nightmare. It
hounds them to death. He Uvea among
rational people tad breathe pure air,
and I don't believe the bird atop elng

shines on him aa on other people.
Laughter and good cheer occasionally
greet him, and there ia life, full, healthy
life around him; life with ita pleasure
and Joya and brightneaa, aa well aa ita
sorrows and sombre things; and yot thia

Perhaps novor in tho history of modern
journalism has any newspaper gained so
rapidly in public favor as tho Chicago
Intor Ocean. Within tho past two years
it has, by adopting progressive methods
and injecting push and onterprise in nil
its dopartmonts forced itself into tho
vory front rank of great Chicago news
papers. That this popularity is de
served is beyond question. The pub
lisher during this time, Mr. II. H. Kohl
Boat, haa spared noither expense nor
effort to attain his ideal and ho haa
Uncompromisingly republican on all
national issues. The Intor Ocean does
battlo for what it believes to be the true
faith in a manner that at once commands
the attention of the public and respect
of all. It can bo recommended to those
who desiro a clean, reliable, enterprising
metropolitan family newspaper.
