PRAYERS OF THE BIBLE, Phillip Watters, Baker Book House, $3.95.

Compiling this book required much time. I was not prepared to find so many "prayers", and a book so large It was first printed in 1883. You will find some prayers which were not answered, and the "Why" they were not answered. Some prayers are forbidden. I would be glad to know that a copy of this book was in very home, and read often. Do not forget when you pray: You are talking to Jehovah, if you pray as you could, and always ask that "Thy will be done" You may ask for something in a prayer which would not be for your good, nor the good of others.

MAN AT HIS BEST, By Leonard Cochran, 174 p., Abdington Press, Cloth bound.

The author, a Methodist minister, if highly appreciated by his church, and those who know him. A portion of this book is about Christ; but the major part is about "man."

He thinks but few think of what they will be, and do in life, and begin early to make preparation for that work. What is your object in life? Is it wholly selfish. Do you see what others have done which contributes to you happiness in life? Look about yourself, see what others have done that contribute to the world. Do not allow yourself to think of self all the while. Man is at "his best" when he striving to be one of those who make a better world, socially, religiously, as well as in the conveniences of civilization. Secure a copy of this book, there is yet time for you to be a factor in making a better world.
