I shouldn't advise bothering much about this. Doubtless the editor had fun through the years collecting these bits and pieces of anecdote, modern parable and fable, brief notations, and sorting them out for use and ready reference by fellow Rotarians, Kiwanis, Lions Club members and clergymen, who are in demand for impromptu (?) public utterances. Odd facts about people and things, in paragraph length anecdotal form, arranged alphabetically under subject matter from accident to X-ray. Pretty flat reading.
