v -The advantages gained by the forecasts
ot weather given by tho meteorological
bureau arc great, but "Oliver asks tor
mnro." When a storm forms its course can
be traced until it ceases or passes beyond
observation. Taught by the experience
thus gained, and aided by the telegraph,
whose messages fly faster than thu storm,
the bureau can tell a particular portion of
the country what sort of weather is ap
proaching and thus render great service,
especially to the mariner. Tlie "more"
that is wanted the scientist bar, as yet, no
nutans of supplying. Ho can tell the prob
able direction a storm will take, but when
a storm will arise catftiot be loreseen, nor
can it be told what sort of a winter we

There appear to be many different ways
of understanding the meaning of newspa
per patronage, as it is called, and as an in-tere.-ted
party, we give place to a disquisi
tion of the subject by oue who know
whereof he speaks. It will serve, perhaps,
as a mirror where certain persons can see
themselves as others see them.
Many long and weary years have force J the
conviction upon us that newspaper patron
age is a word of many dcfinitions.and that a
great majority of mankind are either ig
norant of the correct definition or are dis
honest in a strict biblical sense of the word.
Newspaper patronago is composed of as
many colors as the rainbow, and is s
changeable as chameleon.
One man comes ia and subscribes tor a
paper and pays fr it in advance, and goes
home and reads it with tho proud satisfac
tion that it is his. 'He hand in his adver
tisemrnt, aski the price, pays for it, and
goes to his place of business and reaps the
advantage thereof. Another says "you
may put my name on your Ijooks," and
goes out without saying a word alout pay.
Times pass on, and you want money, and
want him to pay you what is honestly due
you. He flics into a passion, perhaps pays,
perhaps not, and orders his paper stopped.
This is called newspaper patronage.
Another man lives near you he does not
take the paper he don't liko the cditr.r
the paper is too small for him yet he goes
regularly to his neighbor and reads it, and
quarrels with the opinions of the editor.
Occasionally he sees an article he likes, he
begs, or givea a half a dime for the number.
This is called newspaper patron? gc.
Another mau likes the paper and takes a
copy for his family, and pnyg for it, and
does all he can to get new subscribers; he
never grumbles, but always has a cheerful
word for the editor. If any little item of
interest occurs in his neighborhood he in
forms the editor. This is newspaper patron
age. . Another man has a patent and wants you
to give it a two-dollar notice every1 week.
It will lie ot interest to your reader he
says; but although knowing It will benefit
him most of all, he does not offer to pay
for it. This is called newspaper patron
age. Another man has taken the paper for
several years, but Ins not paid for it, and
comes in with a four or five dollar adver
tisement and asks yoti to insert it tor noth
ing, Ix-causc he is on old patron of yours.
This is called netvsoaper patronage.
Another man "a young man about
town;" nn use of taking a paper; he knows
..it ii i.. : i... i
nil ineru in gotaj; on. jy aim uy in: gem
married, and hands in a notice with "just
give me a dozen copies " He gets them,
and when you meutiou pay looks surpris
ed "You surely don't charge for such a
thing!" And this Is railed newspaper pat
ronage. Now isn't newspaper patronage a curious
And itt that great dtj when the gentle
men in black gets his dues, as ho surely
will, how many of the patrons enumerated
abovt will fall to his share? Now it will
be seen that while certain kinds of' patron
age are the very life and existence of a
newspaper, there arc other kinds of patron
age that are mare dostructivo than the
