A Short Chspter on Editing.
"Fools rush in where angels
ear to tread," has often been ap
plied to the editing of a periodi
cal, and I presume I may, without
being accused of vanity, conclude
that, in making the application,
the term, "fools," refers to ub fel-
ows who have the temerity to un
dertake the job, while the "angels"
are the wise ones who stand aloof
and do not risk their reputations
and peace of mind by tackling that
kind of business And yet it ia a
notorious fact that the "angels"
who keep on the outside, always
know more about the business
than the "fools" who "rush in."
The unfortunate "fools" discover
arly in the conflict, and realize
the longer they keep at it, what a
thankless task they have under
taken and how utterly impossible
it is to satisfy the "angels." Hor
ace White (at least my recollection
is that it was Horace, and if it
was not I will accept his apology
for not fathering the idea) once
said that "the successful editor re
quired one more sense than the
ordinary individual. Usually peo
ple have five senses, but the editor
had to have a sixth the newspa
per sense." Some men are born
with it; some by long experience
achieve, it; and others have it
thrust upon them at the muzzle of
a double-barreled shot-gun, or on
the point of an Arkansas tooth
pick. The duties of the genuine
dyed-in-the-wool, simon-pure ed
itor ore multifarious and multitu
dinous. His work is not only to
"do a little writiu'," as is some
times supposed, but to cull, to
glean, to select, to discriminate, to
decide, 4o . forrmoo, to -obsefrvcj to
grasp, to explain, to elucidate, to
inflate, to boil down, "to be, to do
and to suffer," and several hundred
other verbs, with a large number
of districts yet to hear from
Give an "angol" a newspaper and
he will contemptuously glance
over it and remark that "there's
nothing in it ; I could edit a doz
en such sheets before breakfast.'
But set him on a tripod and give
him the tools of the trade: the
pen, paBte-brush and shears, and
hia first question ia, ?Where shal
I begin?" and that is just where
the "newspaper sense" first comes
into play. He learns more as be
goes on. Old father Greeley
claimed that the way to resume
was. to resume." Being a man
who had gone through the mill,
and therefore had a chance to
know, he might have said that the
way to edit was, to edit. There
are some few individuals who
know it all, but they either have
done all their editing theoretically
or are very, very young in the
profession. As I am circum
Bcribed, as to space, and have had
considerable experience in this
line, I shall endeavor to quit, like
a "fool."-H. J. Shellman.
A lady novelist noted for the
nuritv of her books condemns
many of tlie modern novels that
are read so greedily by our young
people, which touch in a sort of
disguised way, upon forbidden
tonics. Absolute wickedness, crime
represented aB crime, and licen
tiousness put forward as licen
tiousncss, is far less dangerous to
the young and naturally pure
mind than that charming senti
mental dallying with sin, making
it appear so piteous, bo interesting
bo beautiful. Nay, without even
entering upon the merit 1 of the
favorite modern stylo of fiction
in which love, . to be attractive,
must necessarily be unlawful
there is a stylo of novel in which
right and wrong are muddled up
together into a sort of neutral tint
the author, and consequently the
reader, taking no trouble to distin
guish between them. The charac
ters are made interesting, not by
their virtues but their faults: a
good woman worships a bad man,
and vice versa. Now this may be
true in real life, though I doubt;
but to present it in real fiction, to
make a really noble woman the ab
ject, willing slave of a contempti
ble brute not worthy to tie her
shoes, or an honorable man doing
all sorts of erring things for the
sake of a feeble or vile woman,
whom her own box and the best of
the other would heartily despise
the effect of such a picture as this
is to confuse all one's notions of
good and bad. Beside, it is not
true, for in real life, time brings
nnerring punishment to the wrong
doer. No one, outside tho pages
of a novel, ever escapes the conse
quences of his Bins. Ex.
The Sample Copy Fiend.
The annoyance to which publ
ishers and dealers are put by
receiving postal cards and letters
rom inconsiderate, parsimonious,
and mean people, asking for sam
ple copies of periodicals, has be
come so great of late, that it has
called forth a scathing rebuke
from Bill Nye, in the Laramie
Boomerang. It is apt and point
ed, hitting the nail on the head.
We give the article in full.
"Recently it seems as thoueh
a large number of people through-
out this country have nothing to
do but write postal cards to news
paper publishers, asking for sam
ple copy of their paper. This is
a new ana growing industry. 1
costs only a cent to get a sample
copy, and at this rate the average
bora ol' this denomination erpocL
to get a $3 weekly one year for
fifty-two cents. Of course the
sample copy free-lunch fiend has
to write every week and sign a
different name, but that don't in
jure his feeling any. He has
nothing else to do, and it drives
away ennui. Perhaps these peo
ple think we are publishing a
1aper just to wear out our young
ife, but that is where they fall
into a common error. We are
trying to acquire a competence, so
that we con carry a summer cane,
and have a special mug at the
barber shop, with our monogram
on it, and that is why we ask pay
for things sometimes when it
seems unlady-like and eccentric.
The man who gets his literature
by smouging sample copies is gen
erally a man who obtains a precar
ious livelihood by posing as an
artist's model of a wild-eyed snide.
People who enclose stamps will be
waited upon just as soon as the
mailing brigade can catch up a
little, but those who enclose a
chunk of taffy in a postal card,
and look for this priceless reposi
tory of electrotyped brain, will
anxiously watch through the
gloaming till a late hour, but they
will wait in vain."
