Chicago is as noted for Its newspapers, as
for its manufacturing, cnmmeieial and mer-
canlllu prosperity. Iudct-tl, its newspapers
ai c the indices and promoters ot Us progress,
and lead in all enternrizea affecting its ma
terial and moral wclubciii. Tney are the
representatives of its growing greatness, and
play a must important part iu lis social, mor
al and political life. And as Chicsgo is tho
business center of the Northwest, tier papers
partake of her cosmopolitan oharacter, and
not only furnish tee fullest and most complete
general news, but they often give better re
ports of the I.o.'lslat vo proceedings of sur
rounding States, and earlier news from tho
roinmeiit points in those btutes, than their
tome naner. An I as Chicago, through her
complete network of railroads, is accessible to
almost all points iu tho Northwest, the farm
er, the merchant and tho mechanic find it the
best source, ol supply for the earliest and
0 impleteet news, in t only of general interest,
but of whatever pertains to his particular
business. Suubliiug a lurge field, and on-
joying a largo putrouago, the publisher can
iiirnmn a better paper, ior uie same price,
than the publishers iu leas favored localities.
And as this is the season for renewing sub
scriptions and forming clubs for another
yi ar, a few suggestions us to tho character of
jiapers it is niui.t desirable and protltable to
lalio may not bo out of place.
The first characteristic of a7fiod neiennaner
Is promptness iu furnishing the earliest and
coiupletent news. And though, ns a general
rule, readers will prefer a paper of their own
political views, yet it is better to take a gou l
newspaper of opposite politics, than a poor
one of oue's own political faith. And espe
cially is it wise to take a paper of decided
political convictions, fearlessly and candidly
expressed, than one of no convictions, or
all aid to express any, lust it might offend
some of its readers.
A good newspaper will supply its readers
with news ou all topics nf human interest.
Its correspondents should kuow what they
aro writing about, and bo able to cvnross their
thoughts iu a clear, concise and readable
style Its editorials should bo terse, argil,
tnentative, exhaustive, going to the mariow
of the subject, bold, manly, courteous, eleva
ting, and pervaded with tho spirit nt pro
gress ami tho love of humanity. Every (ice
newspaper must havo a toul In it, and that
uul, sooner or later, will carry with it the
souls of its readers. A complete newspaper
is a map of the human race, revised day by
day and week by week to represent the end

AMUSEMENTS. Brief History of "Tat-Se-O-Tams,"
or the Great Wonder of the Age.
When the tronpe of Jnpnneue Gymnasts
visited Chicago iu 1HG8, Mr. Campbell, who
has nlwnyn nn "lye to business," was
struck with the peculiarly glossy nppenr
nncn of 'their hair. One of the oldest
members of the troupe, who, with eotmr
pnnion, was sauntering about town,
chnueed to drop into Mr. Campbell's store,"
nnd looking closely nt his hnir, Mr. Camp,
bell beenme convinced thnt the Jnpnnese
knew something nhout the art of coloring
hnir. Consequently, on the dny following
he called on the Jnpnnese inleipreter, nt
the Tremont House, nnd stnted his bnsi-'
ness, saying thnt if he wns correct in his
conjecture, he wns willing to pny an exor
bitunt price for information that would be
the means of driving the poisonous, filthy
Hair Dyes from the American market.
Tho interpreter Informed him thnt one
of ti e older members of the troupe bnd
been in former years chief hnlr-drenser to
His Majesty the Tycoon, and thnt he wns
in possession of secrets in tho nrt of color
ing hair, but that he wnn nnder obligations
to his government not to revonl them.
Through tho kindness of the interpreter,
Mr. Campbell wns Introduced to this per
son, nnd mndn kuowu his wishes. He was
mot by a retunnl nt onco. This person,
whoie nnme, ns many will remember, was
O-wee-gee-weo-nnh, told Mr. Campbell
tat there were two kinds of dyes uindo in
Japan, one for coloring black and I o oilier
for prodncing a brown effect; thnt tho for
mer was in common use, while the Intter
was n "court trmi," nnd used only in the
family of tho Tycoon.
Mr. Campbell determined to possess him
self of this dye if possible, as nothing bnd
ever been known in Europe or America thnt
would color hair brown. He therefore
offered O-wce-gro-wee-tinh a largo sum of
money for the secret, but he wusrrlused.
Shortly nfter this the troupe left Chicago
and went to New York, nnd Mr. Campbell
followed them iu a few days. Ho went im
mediately to the hotel where they wero
stopping, and not deliberately at work to
accomplish his purpose. He became inti
mately acqnninted with every gymnast, at
tended their exhibitions nigluly. Introduced
them to his friends, drove them to tho
parks nnd places of public interest, nnd in-
grnlintcd himself thoroughly in their favor.
At length gaining their confidence he
succeeded in obtaining a promise from ()
wee-gee-vreo-nnh, thnt whenever they left
the connlry he should hnve the secret, bnt
only on condition that it should never be
communicated tn a third party. Tha
amount to be paid on surrender of the o
cret wns fabulous. Mr. Campbell remain
ed in New York nutil the troupe wns ready
to anil. Ire hour was set lor communica
ting tho desired informntion, and a bag ol
twenty dollar gold pieces wus ready for de
livery, when O-wee gee-wee-nah wus tuken
suddenly ill, and, as he wns liko ull his
countrymen, superstitious, he regarded his
sickness ns judgment on him lor the net he
wns about to commit, and here Mr. Camp
bell was foiled ngniu.
The troupe sailed for Europe, but Mr.
Campbell wns not to be deleated. His
Agent started in the next steamer nnd over
hauled the gymnasts in Loudon, nnd fol
lowed them to Pans. Hern their exhi
bitions, were not ns profltuble, ns they had
been, nnd hero Mr. Campbell's agent bold
ly renewed hii offer, increasing it by more
than a tliouniml dollars iu gold, uud nt
lust, in Paris, he was successful ho laid
bunds on the mighty secret and at onco
started nn his return trip.
Mr. Campbell nttcr thoroughly experi
menting with the dye tins put it upon tho
market. Persons hnve only to try it to be
sntiticil. Tho eccount hers given reads
more liko fiction than truth, but a head
of gray hair changed to the soft, glossy
brown of yonth, will convinue tho mo it
skeptical that Mark Campbell in this, as iu
other things, does not humbug the people.
This in the eighth wonder of the world.

years ago ho opoued a small office on Dear

menced business, obtaining customers here
and there, steadily making friends. His
plnn of conducting business was then, as
it always has beeu, to give perfect satis

The rosult was thnt friends aud customers
multiplied, aud his business soon necessi
tated more room, as well ns increased facil
ities, to keep pace with its demands. Pur-
well Hull Building wns selected as a now
base, aud there he opened aud operated
upon a uiucn more extensive scale; when
in the midst of prosperity he lost his en
tire stock of material and presses with the
disastrous fire which occurred to
that building two years ngo. It re
quired, however, only a lew hours to secure
new quarters, and, witn n new outfit, Bet

lacillties tor procuring business, soon suc
ceeding in obtnining customers in all purls
