Omer Koria s.
Tbe fullowit g from the Inland Printer
is reproduced with all due modesty:
It is to bp doubted if tbe ingenuity of
any class of writer is taxed to such an
extent ts 'bttof reporters. Ctriain'y
no body of writers have to put up with
an tqual cumber of annoyances. All the
reporter's copy has to go through tbe
bunds of a copy reader who may and
this is mote liktly tban not lobe tbe
case not know the Am thing about the
subject treated of. The copy is butcher
ed or charged to suit the notions of the
readers. s metimes materially improved,
and as often iujured. It is do infrtq ient
thing for a reporter 10 find when the pa
per comes out, that the portions of his
stuff that he spent tbe most lime on. and
on tbe diction of which he most prided
himself, hdve been wholly cut out. Sen
tences nmi phrases that from tbe stnnd
point of ood English are essential, but
are cot wholly necessary for understand
in" tbe sense of the article, are often
ruthlessly eliminated. Ybrds of blua
pencil are annually worn away in the
newspaper offices at tbe desks of the
copy readers and that, too, for pood
and sufficient reasons of one sort or an
other that is fcim ply so much material
scrubbed aay to the detriment of the
queen's English. This is not to be taken
as a criticism of the work of copy read
ers or editors. Tbe people want al! tbe
news for 1 or 2 cents, as the case my be.
The paper that "gets left" on or slights
an item is censured. Today there is such
a paucity of news that recourse has to be
had to npecial ar'.icles or clippings to fill
up tbe columns. Tomorrow there miv
be such a redundant y of items that w hole
galleys of matter s t up and ready for
thu forms, hve to be beld out at the
last moment perhaps, a big fire breaks
out, or an accident occurs, or some prom
inent individual dies. Such items have
to be treated in do. ail. no nutter what be
comes of the minor news. I have often
known the forms of a newspaper to be
unlocked in tbe wee hours of the morning
to acrommodate something of this sort.
Thi n column articli s are whittled down
in tbe proof to half or quarter column
articles. Paragraphs become mere lines, j
Some items are thrown out entirely. The
whole has to be done with the greatest
dispatch in order that tbe new forms m7
be ready for the press at the npcessarv
time. There is no time to wa-te in cut-I
ting tbe stuff carefully. It is butchered, i
copy readers, editors, everybody Mdrnit
it. Hut it is a necessity, and a well
written article appears ntxt rr.ori.ing dis
jointed, fragmentary, incomplete And
then the public says. "What En".isi :'

In the Spring !
In the vegetable kingdom, the sap or vital
fluid rises from the roots to the trunk and
branches, producing leaf and flower. So in
the human family, the change is as great, for

throw off its impurities. In this it is neces
sary to assist nature, and nothing is so good to
