"Who writo tlio humorous paragraphs
for the big morning papora of Now York?
they must bo very proliflo writers, and
I do not see how they enn think of so

Everybody writes thorn. It is not a

their joke money. Each week they write
20 to 60 of these paragraphs, and then
taking them in their market basket go
ont and dispose of them.
Thoy go to the keenest editor first,
and ho takes what suits him. Then they
go to oue who Is a little loss alert with
what is left, and so on till the lot is
disposed of. It wonld be amusing to

writes all the original humorous non

a great mistake. Sometimes there will
be a week at a time when neither of
