even Chicago takes strong attractions.

of his gesture, the meat flew off, and was
instantly devoured by the family dog.

The weekly pay for reporting for citv
newspapers runs all the war from tin t
f50. And there is always a sdendid ehnr
for good reporters. To be a good reporter
these qualifications are necessary: Health,
the news instinct, a sense of humor, the
ability to write a simple style in a legible
hand, eternal vigilance, temperance, ami
ability, patience, determination and ambi
tion, inen, lurtherraore, it behooves the
reporter to be a constant student and read
er, informing himself fully nnon everr
variety of subjwt that interests mankind.
t or the profession of newspaper reporting
we have the highest regard, and we find
pleasure in this opportunity of saying that
irom tne companionship of newsrmDer re
porters we have derived incalculable profit,
for of all cliLsses and conditions of men (ex
cepting perhaps tbe printer) the newspaper
rt-iKiner seems to aoouncl most liberally in
wit, humor, invention, generosity, tfood
nature, itatit-nce. pluck, fortitude and those
other qualities and accomplishments which
ao so much toward brightening and better
ing human life. Chicago News.
