         DRUMMOND'S "GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD."
                  BY MARY LOUISA MOSSELL.

  AMONG the many good things one is apt to come across when
reading, especially when an effort has been made to select the
best class of literature for reading, now and then there is some-
thing that will strike one as having especial merit, something that
we feel benefited from having read. So true is this that, simul-
taneously with the grateful feelings toward the author that fill our
heart, and with still greater sense of thanks to the Heavenly
Father who gave impetus to such ennobling thoughts, we feel that
we would proclaim something of the same message to the world.
Indeed, it always seems to us a matter of duty to tell, at least,
some one else.
