Youtsey' in a low but audible tone

that my conviction was accomplished
only by base and infamous suborina
Hoh of perjury." "

judge. "It if the judgment of this
court that you be removed by the sher
iff -of Scott county to the state peni
tentiary at Frankfort, and there be

"I know what 'leaders' are, for I have
written them," said Benjamin pisraell
In the course of a speech Jin the house
of commons, and, though all of us may
not have written "leaders" for The
Morning Post and other ' newspapers,
like Disraeli, we all at least know the
meaning of the term "leaders."
For more than 100 years after the
publication of the first daily newspa
per The Daily Courant. which consist
ed of a small sheet printed on one side
only and made its appearance in Lon
don in March, 1702, the "dailies" con
fined themselves to what Is perhaps
the proper business of a newspaper,
the publication of the largest possible
amount of news, and made no attempt
whatever to mold or direct public opin
At the opening of the nineteenth cen
tury "the leading article" first appear
ed iu the morning papers. It was orig
inally called the "leaded article," be
cause of the "leads'' or spaces intro
duced between the Hues to spread out
the article and give It au imposing ap
pearance In order that it might at once
attract the eye of even the most casual
reader. After a time it was called
"leading article" or "leader" or "edi
torial." names by which it is now uni
versally known in newspaper offices.
At the beginning "leaders" were pub
lished only tentatively. Their publica
tion was irregular. In form they were
brief we should call them "editorial
paragraphs" now and they were prin
cipally used to direct special attention
to some Important event recorded in the
news columns. But 73 years ago they
became a settled and regular feature
of the daily newspaper and a potent
agency for promoting opinions, politi
cal, religious and social. Coruhiil Mag

"Cooperage is one of the trades that
Do one thought of improving uutll with
in recent years," said a manufacturer,
"but then the inventors and expert ma
chinists started in with such a rush
that it takes a good deal of our time
keeping abreast of the improvements
that are coming into the market every
"The work used to be done entirely
Ly hand, and the coopers often had to
buy their hoops from a firm that made
nothing else. The coopers were not
well enough equipped to make all the
different parts of a barrel themselves,
and often they bought everything out
side and merely put the barrels togeth
er. It used to take five or six men to
do the work properly, and an hour's
time would perhaps turn out ten bar
rels. "As the system is now, all tbe differ
ent parts are made by one machine,
and only one man is needed to attend
it. After tlte wood is fashioned Into
staves and hoops end braces by it the
pieces are run through another section
of it and c;ome out almost immediately
a finished .barrel, ready to be loaded
and shipped to ojar customers.
"On a regular average about 30 bar
rels can be turned out In an hour. You
can see what the saving is over the old
way. Employing six men for one hour,
as they used'to do, we can get 160 bar
rels, where by the old system they
were only able to get ten." Pittsburg
