Every Subscriber Wants to Boss and
Run tho Paper for Its Editor.
They say poets are born, and
not made. We dont know
about Editors, but our opinion
is that thoy arc a sort of human
hash, created from left-over
fragments. To run a newspaper
its Editor must be all sorts
of a fellow, for he has more different
kinds of human nature
to contend with than prehapsall

We don't know any class that

as the average ink slinger on a
Weekly paper, I?nt. prehaps the

Every man who hands you

lor the naj r hugs the
hallucination to bis uosom that,
this quarter gives him the right
to oversee and boss the sheet,
ami he never hesitates to exercise
that prerogative. 1 It;
imagines that all he has to do
to scare the Editor out of a
year's growth, and leave him
clinging to the ragged edge
of starvation, is to threaten to
stop his paper.
When Horace Greeley was
publishing the New York Tribune,
an irate subscriber once
frantically rushed into his sanctorum,
and with an outburst
of indignation announced to the
Editor iVat lie had "stopped the
"Greiit Heavens," exclaimed
Mr. Greeley, "is that so? Let

w^llityit permitting his ex-pat ron
to explain, lie grasped him by
the arm and pranced him into
the editorial rooms, where some
fifty men were grinding <?ut

Now the truth is when a publisher
pays for white paper,
printers ink, work, mailing,
postage, office rent, and a hun
(lred other charges connected
with the publication of the
smallest weekly paper, he can
put in one eye all the net profits
he will make from several
thousand subscribers, and it

Then a good church member
took us aside and said he liked
the paper, but it would be well
to stop publishing accounts of
murders or any crime whatever;
that lie could ^et us up the
county church directory to fill
in with, and we could publish
reports of the Sunday schools,
Union meetings and like pious
Wo could but think how many

another :idvi < <1 th;?i we <-nt
the Sunday school programs and

puiilisli more polities and another
thought that we had better
let polities severely alone. One
Godwin supporter said our pa
per would go to tho wall unless
we come out strong for Hannibal;
and a Clarke man predicted
the same dire fate unless we
supported Oscar.
In fact, there is scarcely a day
but some one conies in and ad
vises us about running the papaper,
and tells us what wo
must publish and what wo
must omit. Did we pay attention
to all of these bosses, we
would every week mail to our
patrons a clean white sheet of
per, without a line of printing
thereon. Now, wo are entirely
willing to do this, provided these
self appointed critics will make

to hold our subscribers

would save us big money we
must now pay for printers,
press work, etc.
It really seems that what is

is concerned.
We know our friends and self
appointed guardians and advisers
are actuated by th?; kindest
motive^, and really think they
are doing the editor a service by
imparting their advice. But
there is an old saying, "Let tho
shoemaker stick to his last." If

mankind is created over again,
and they all think and act just|

Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
better health in that organ is obtained
quickest by a proper treatment of the kidneys.
Swamp-Root corrects inability to
hold urine and scalding pain in passing it,
and overcomes that unpleasant necessity
of being compelled to go often through
the day, and to get up many times during
the night. The mild and immediate effect
of Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy
IS soon realized. It stands the highest because
of its remarkable health restoring
properties. A trial will convince anyone.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle and a book that tells all
about it, both sent free by mail. Address,
