He reached the office bright and
early one morning, and as he got the
books and sharpened his pencil he
wondered what sort of lurk the day
would bring forth. Good contracts
had been rather warrq lately, and it
was about time for things to take a turn.
The first uerson to arrive got off a
woodrack, hitched his horses and
floundered in, bearing with him such a
pungent odor of curry-comb and bad
tobacco as to set the unfortunate news
paper man to sneezing. The high-ll.-nored
customer gaped around and
then, planting both elbows on the
counter, asked ;
" I' tli ed'tur in ?"
Clerk "Sir- what is the nature of
your business ?"'
Customer" Wall, I'd like to sec th'
ed'tur himself ef I could. I've got a
lectle adcrtisemei:l I want printed in
Clerk " The editor does not receive
advertisements. That is my business.
Ilae you got it written out?"
Customer (producing a very dirty
scrap of paper) " Vaas. I s'posc ye'll
prcnt it for ntithin' for an old sub
scriber? I'm selling out, you know,
and thete's a heap of folks around our
way takes er paper, and they'd like to
know. It'll be jest as good news as
je'll hcv in your paper."
Clerk- ""it will cost you one dollar
Customer (explosively) "Jumpin'
ieeliCv I One dollar I an' I've been
takin' vcr pa tier four years I"
Clerk "We make nothing on your
subscription. Vour newspaper is much
the cheapest thing that goes into your
house. The advertisements are all we
have to live on."
Customer looked riled, and finally
grabbed his sc rap of paper and bounced
out ; but after scratching his head,
reflecting a few minutes outside the
door, re-entered, .and persuasively
" Say, ye'll do it for half price for'n
old subscriber, won't you ?"
Clerk (decidedly) " Can't do it, sir.'
Customer " Wall, there's your
A clergyman entered solemn
visaged and spectacled.
" I am going to hold special services
during next week. I wish you to
announce it, and please mention that a
collection will be taken up at the close
of each meeting."
Clerk (innocently)" What space
do you wish your advertisement to
Minister " Oh, I merely want an
editorial notice; not an advertisement."
Clerk " We can announce your
meeting only in the form of an adver
tisement." Minister (warmly) " Hut this, sir, is
a matter of public interest of spiritual
importance to your readers. You must
fill your columns with something, and
surely nothing can be ol more surpass
ing interest than my meetings."
Clerk " We must be permitted to
edit our own paper in our own vVay.
If you take a reasonable advertising
space we will be pleased to make a
short local rcfeicucc to )Our announce
ment." Minister (indignantly) "How ex
ceedingly worldly! My dear young
friend, how can you expect to prosper
in a Christian land ?"
Clerk ((Hiictly) "The best Chris
tians 1 am acquainted with are those
who pay their way and ask no favors.
II there were not a few of that sort I
don't see how we would meet our
Minister ((rigidly)" I shall consult
my friends," and stalked out, reflecting
severely on the mercenary character of
men who could not run a newspaper
Hut the doorway was presently
illuminated by a vision of loveliness.
A well-dressed lady, smiling irua most
bewitching manner, stepped up to the
counter, causing the exhausted young
man to suddenly strike a new position,
finger his necktie convulsively, and get
off his other smile, although he was in
wardly fearful she was only a beggar
like the rest.
I-ady (so sweetly)" I vvan't to ask
if you will be so kind as to notice our
social to be held next Thursday even
ing, for the benefit of the Ladies'
Cospcl Aid Society. Tickets only
twenty-five cents, and I'm sure (here
she smiled a smile that agitated his
very boot heels) you will buy a couple,
Clerk (head in. a whirl) " Well-
no thank vou (gaining courage); we
gel about a peck a mouth of these
social tickets presented to us. You
could not get a newspaper to use
them ; no, not for pay."
I.ady "Well, you will give us a
nice notice, anyway. It will be a good
item of news.".
Ctetk " I shall be most happy to
write out an advertisement and insert it
at the tegular rates,"
The smiles at once went out, and
the lady did likewise, leaving the now
nearly distracted youth to wonder if
there was anything in life worth living
He luil not long to ponder, how
ever. A gentleman with an overpower
ing air of biz, and an acre or two of
shin- front, stiode in white the clerk's
hopes took an upward bound at the
prospects of now receiving n genuine
Gent " I icpresent Shakesiieaie
Williaiu, the gteat tragedian. Ten
lines four times how much?''
Clerk "Two dollars."
Gent "All right, my boy. Here's
Clerk" Thank you."
(lent "I cxcct vou to give us
credit till we play. Here arc some
clippings you ran use; I'll leave you a
few for insertion."
Clerk (depreciatingly) " Your
notices arc worth four times as much
as vour advertisement.
(lent " Hut they will be news to
Clerk " I lieg vour jmrdon. They
arc advertisements and nothing more,
I cannot afford to give you ten dollars
worth of advertisements,"
The showman glared, said a very bad
word, gathered up his pawrs furiously
and made for the door. Seeing, how.
ever, that the clerk remained unmoved,
he returned saying:
" Well, do the best you can for us.
Vve got to advertise, anyhow."
As he left the office a young chap
came in and" said simply! "Cook
wanted. References required; 3o
St. John street" and placet! a 35

away. The clerk glared for a moment

Funny and Nor Funny. -The
editor of the Carson Appeal, having
been accused of not being "funny"
enough, procdeds to remark : "Friends,
countrymen and lovers 1 F.ach man in
his time plays many parts; and cacli
newspaper or paper which ought to be
newsy but is not goeth the way in
which it was foreordained to go. It is
a feature of the Danbuty News to lie
funny; and so it is of the Hawkcyc
and so of the Detroit Free I'rcss. The
Appeal could, if it would, be n great
deal funnier than any of these. Hut
would it be becoming in us, the only
notary and the" solitary querist of the
morning press of Ormsby county, here
under the shadow of the capitol, either
to be newsmongcrish or funny? Come
tocethcr in convention, oh our judges,
and condemn us to a toilsome life of
witticism or the treadmill of news-
finding anil we will submit, even though
it shorten our days and bring our gray
hairs in sorrow to the grave. Hut

There has lately been discovered in
the library of the University of Heidel
berg, a cony of a newspaper which
proved to be the oldsct periodical of
which there is now any certain know
ledge. It is a quarto volume, bearing
the date of 1600, and is supposed tn
have been printed by John Carohis, of
btratshurg. J he paper was issued
weekly each number consisting of two
sheets. It was mainly occupied with
letters from correspondents in adjoining
states, which were contributed regularly.
It is interesting to note that letters from
Vienna were about eighty days on the
route, from Venice lourtccn to seven
teen days, and from Home twenty-one
days. When the matter contained in
the letters, together with the news re
tailed at second-hand failed to fill the
sheet, the remaining space wasleft blank.
Intelligence of any sort found a (ace
in the journal. Anion1' the most in
teresting occurrences that were noticed
was the manufacture of the telescope
by Galileo. The correspondent from
Florence writes, on September the 4th,
to the effect " that the government of
Venice made a considerable present to
Signor Galileo, of Florence, professor
Mathematics at l'aduc, and increased
his annual stipend by 100 crows, be
cause with diligent study he fonnd out
a rule rnd measure by which it is pos
sible to see places 30 miles distant as if
it were near, and on the other hand,
near objects to appear much larger
than they are before our eyes." Lon
In 1S28 a ncwspapei was published
called the Cherokee 1'hcenix, which is
interesting on more accounts than one.
It was published in Kngltsh and Chero
kee, the latter portion being printed
with characters invented after years of
patient labor and thought by one of
the Indians, whose curiosity had been
e.xcitcd by the ' speaking leaf,' as he
called a newspaper which he one day
heard a white man read with suprising
readiness and facility. After produc
ing his alphabet, he taught it to the
other members of his tribe, and even
tually, with the assistance 01 govern
ment, was able to start the I'hceni.x.
Very similar was the Sandwich Islands
Gazette,first started in 1835, and boast
ing of wood-cuts,for which the publisher
received a license from the king,worded
as follows ' To Stephen D. Mackintoih.
I assent to the letter vjhich you have
sent me. It affords me pleasure to see
the works of other lands and things that
are new. 1 have said to Kivan, ''make
printing-presses." My thought is en
ded. Love to you and Reynolds. By
King Kaineaguoli.' The paper was of
eight octovo pages, und published in
