THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY.
I sometimes wish people who write novels with a purpose could be put together under one head, and that head cut off.—Dr. G. A. Greene. ■*
Although I do not wish to say a word against the statues and the busts with which our public streets: and our public buildings are so full, yet sometimes when I walk either in London or Edinburgh and/see the figures blackened wth the smoke of a great community and watch the hurrying indifferent crowds that pass them by, I often think that they neither recall to succeeding generations the real form and likeness of the great men who have gone before, nor are they in many cases anything in the nature of a true memorial.—Mr Balfour.
