WHAT IT COSTS TO pUBLISH PIC
A recent letter from Montreal gives
an interesting history of the rise, prog
ress. and prospects of the Graphic Com
pany, by which the illustrated news
paper, the Daily Graphic, is published
In New York City. The American il
lustrated Journal is, as a rule, rather of
a Dolly Vardenish productionan arti
cle of some degree of attractivetkess,
but it won't wash. Even the "Journal
of Civilization" makes a very little high
art go a great way. The portrait of a
man hung for murdering his mother-inlaw,
with the slightest possible altera
tion is made to do duty for a foreign
minister. Landscapes and battle scenes,
"by our special artist," serve tor any
number of occasions and for any local
ity. The Daily Graphic, however, by a
slowly invented process of photo-lithographic
engraving, proposed an advance
Melo in the art of Illustrating current
events. Its engravings, judged ot in
the light of photo-lithography, may
have .been the perfection of art,
but by any other known process of
illustration they were a fal!ure.
Coarse, grotesque, hazy and ill-defined,
they constantly suggested the idea that
the artist had been calied away by some
dometttle calamity when his work was
about half done. The Graphic made up
in thesminuteness of its details for any
other deficiencies. Did it have occasion
to publish a fae simile ot an important
document, It generally gave, in addition
to the portraits of the author and the
table on which the same was written, an
illtistration of the pen with which the
deed was- done and a portrait of the
very goon from which the pen was
plucked. Tne art of newspnper Illustra
tion can go no farther until some future
genius invents a process by which in
tangible ideas can be photographed, or
the convoluted smile of Schuyler Colfax
copied in all its tropical luxuriance.
The history of this Graphic Company
Was recently given by no less a person
than Sir Francis Minks, in a speech
made by hitn beiore a Committee ot the
Provincial Parliament at Quebec. As
President he applied on the 12th ult. for
a hill to allow the Company to reduce
the amotint of its capital stock, sell out
the Graphic) newepaper, and take such
other steps as might be necessary to
save the creditors and enable the Com
pany to continue its manufacturing busi
ness exclusively. The application was
refused, but some interesting revela
tions were made as to the origin and
management of the Company. A 31r.
Legge, of Montreal, having invented a
process of photo-lithographic engraving
and printing, in 1872 the Graphic Com
pany was set on foot with a capital
stock ot $750,000. Through the euergy of a
Man by tate name of Desbarats this
was soon raisedLeggo & Desbarate
taking $250,000 as their pay, as inventor
and promoter respectively. Desbarats
managed the business. Be went to
New York and made arrangements with
the Goodsell Brothers to conduct the
manufacturing business and to publish
the Daily Graphic, the profits of which

These were the last words Bernard
Hope ever spoke.
A year bad passed avvay since Ber

mained an inmate of the house of Mrs.
eturgatroyd, tile good woman Whom WU
have seen in attendauce at her fatuer's

occupation as nurse, added the tnere

landlady, who was unceasiug in her en

troublenoue the less hard to bear that
it was one in white' she could have tow

wentiou has already been made, was not

and Eleventh bad been engaged in a
smart ekirmish,the number of dead and ,
wounded being considerable. Major
Geoffrey Howard was reported among
the fallen, and Mary had to mourn at
onee her lover and her father.
The death of Major Howard left Mr.
Sivthorpe sole trustee of Mr. Hope'a
will. This to Mary was a matter of the
most perfect indifference. buspecting
evil of no one, she was as willing that
her little fortune, amounting to some
five or six tnousand puede, oilfield rest

from any other, but were doubly so from
a person whom she could not help re
garding with an instinctive dislike. And 1
in trutil Mr. biythorpe was not precisely '
the person to win a young lady's fancy.
Uneereized. high-shouldered, with blink
ing, lashiess eyes, and a general angu
larity, not to say Knobbinees, of feature,
he might have been expected to rise su
, perior to any weakness as to personal
appearance, but such was by no means
!tee case. Mr. Slythorpe one morning
' knocked at Mrs. Murgatroyd's door.
Teat good lady was at the moment en
gaged in dusting Miss Hope'it room,
and catching sight of his approach, ex
claimed: "There's that nasty worriting lawyer
again, do declare. blytitorpo, indeedl
I'd bly thorpe him!"
It would be hopeless to endeavor to
express on paper toe intensity of mean

good laily'e vehemence.
"My dear Mrs. Murgatroyd, you really

At this poiut the conversation was in

of ecented soap accompanied him

in another moment the door was flan

There is only one possible answer to
suoh an aocusation, aud Maj. Howard
matte it; that Is to say, he called Mary a
little goose, kissed her, and dropped the
subject. On leaving her, he took a Han
som cab and arove to the Mike of the
liquidator of tee company, when, on his
stating that he desired to make some in
quiries on behalf ot oue ot their share
holders, Mr. Blytnorpe, he was informed
to his astonishment tuat there was not,
and never had been, any shareholder of
that name on the books of the Company.
He next ingired whether, perchance, the
shares were standing in Miss Hope's own
name, and agaiu Wad answered in the
negatiVe. Utterly bewildered, he drove
to Mr. Blythorpe's office. Mr. Stythorpe
was at home, and he speedily found him
self in the attorney'e presence. Mr.
Slythorpe was a little nervous. Ile was
always a little nervous with strangers
till he knew their business, and Major
Howard's announcement that he had
called on benall of Bliss Mary Hope did
not tend to increase his confidence. He
was, however, tar from suspecting Ma
jor Howard's identity, but jumped to the
concluelon that he was a hostile solici

to account. Major Howaru's next re
mark tended to confirm that impression.
