THURSDAY, JA1NU1ARY 20, 1S38.
The'Petersburg, lind.. News is said to
have done magnificent s-. rvi e for ra?
tional honor in the recent presld ntiai
campaign, andl since tint time ha- been
issuing "prosperity supplements to
show that the action of the voters in
repudiating the "1C to 1 fallacy" had re?
stored confidence and that u wave of
prosperity was sweeping over the coun?
try, but, if we may judge from .i recent
editorial 'Which appeared in cur este- m.
eU' contemporary, clamorous en ditors
caused the editor to become disgusted,
and he eased his mind 'in the following
"During each month of the year we
furnish our readers with It pub lean
prosperity supplements?no more such
supplements will be sent out with out
paper. The supplements ate a fraud, a
delusion, and a lie. We are csham? d of
hhem, sick and' sore at the idea of send?
ing out such 'prosperity supplements'
when, ut the -lme time we are unable
to collect enough money to meet out
bills after having rnatie them."
The editor's life, at best, is not spent
in lounging upon a bed of roses and
the "?delinquent subscriber" is a ghost
which will not down. The editor of the
News shou'd have the un-r igned sym?
pathy of the entire profession. Who can
conceive of more horrible torture than
that experienced by a conscientious
newspaper man who Is ford d into th<
apparently hypocritical position of talk?
ing "prosperity," when the bank ac?
count is getting below the "bills paya?
ble" page of the ledger?

Inasmuch as the Hon. Thomas Ev?

The action of che council in passing
an ordinance to prohibit Sunday work,
when there is already a State law cov?

the average mind as being a work of
supererogation. It would be almost as

and solemnly promulgate an order re?
quiring all terrestial objects to be sub?
ject to the law of gravitation.
