As the time approaches when tho nvorago man, realizing the error of his ways and being sorely troubled thereby, resolves to bo other than tho average man, which, it ia perhaps needless to state, the poor fellow rarely suc ceeds in becoming, it is interesting to know what Is thought of the attempt. The Herald, conscious that there are many who ridiculo this custom of swearing off, declaring that it Is foolish and without good results, deter mined that opinions from some of tho city's noted clergymen should bo given its readers concerning the question.
