Our friend Mac, ot the Dexter l.endcr, who is generally level-headed, don't take much stock in free reading rooms, to be aupphed, he doubtless thinks, by böggiug newppapers and periodicals largely from the local publishers.

If you have auy spare change, brothers, give it to the iirst tramp who comes along, and Iet those who want to read buy their own newspapers. Free reading rooms are sentimental delusions and don't amount to shucks as moral agencies." What is got for nothing is not likely to be appreciated. That is the idea.
