New York (N.Y.) Evening Post

There are periodicals published by learned societies, there are periodicals of a special and technical nature and there are serious reviews—which bear to the trivial weeklies inversely as the revue to the drama. It is necessary for the scholar, engineer, or business man to keep abreast of the latest information in his subject; it is necessary for every one to read at times a good review.

Every intelligent man, woman, and child should read the newspapers; but no time should be wasted on them. I read local newspapers morning and evening in my own town and am a regular subscriber to morning and evening New York newspapers. I wish to know what is going on in my own city and in the world, and I read editorial comment because it is representative of the views of thousands of my countrymen. I also subscribe to The Christian Science Monitor because it has the best special reports from every locality on earth of new plays, new music, new developments in art and literature, and an admirable page on athletics—I always read sporting news.
