Last Sunday evening Dr ' Frank
Gunsaulus, pastor of the Plymouth
Congregational church of Chicago,
invited the National Editorial asso
ciation to his church and then had
the exceeding bad ta?te to deliber
ately and not without due meditation
offer a ijross insult to one of the
hardest working, most conscientious
branches of the profession that has
made him and other men of note all
that thev are. The Chicago Evening
Post commenting on the preacher's
tirade says editorially:
Since every man in America (ex
cept he be an editor) knows how to
run a newspaper we must not find
fault with liev. Frank Grinsaulus for
talking shop to the members of the
National Editorial association who
accepted his invitation to Plymouth
Congregational church last night.
It is the indefeasible right of every
American citizen to instruct the
newspaper editor in the business of
editing. Far be it from us to deny
that right to the admirable young
Mr. (lunsaulus. His discourse may
have contributed nothing to the wis
dom or gaycty of the nations; it may
have been the thoughtless chaff of an
wninstructed amateur, but, such as
it was, it was an utterance which Mr.
Gunsaulus had a right to deliver, ac
cording to the law that everybody's
business is the editor's and the edi
tor's business is everybody else's.
Hut we take Dr. (iunsaulus to task
for his thoughtless, cruel and un
truthful eibservations on the class of
workers known as reporters. We
impeach this parson of high crime
against truth and justice for these
words, which we tind in the report of
ltut the editors are not entirely to
blame if lies are published. Thev
are sometimes led astray by reporters
who spend their days and nights in
dens of vice, w ho are debauehers of
the worst kind, who hover above the
putrefying carcass of truth and then
pander to iniquity by ileli berately
falsifving news they are ordered to
'et, "Reporters are to blame for
many of these things that destroy
the manly tone of a newspaper.
This is mere maundering calumny
and slan lor. There are reporters
who answer this description, just as
there are preachers who goastraV,
false shepherds who debauch their
flocks, but in one case as in the oth
er, the black sheep lire not the wholr
flock. The debauched, unscrupulous
reporter anil the debauched preacher
one i as good standing in his pro-
fessoin as the other.
Here are some facts about the news
paper reporter which we eommt nd to
Dr. Guusaulus' attention: The gen
tlemnn (or lady) who gathers news
for the doctor's edification is 1, so
ber; 2, industrious; 3, intelligent.
He or she must be all these to hold
the place. The days of the old Ho
hemian regime are past and gone.
There is no place in the newspaper
ranks for the drunkard, the libertine,
the ignoramus, the blackmailer.
Qfe'ober, industrious, honest intelli
gent, the newspaper reporter must
"be. More he or she may be and
often is. He or she may be brilliant,
highly educated, chivalrous, refined,
inspired by lofty ideals. Why, we
will take a hundred Chicago report
. ere and set them against a hundred
Chicago clergymen and ask Dr. Gun
saulus himself to say which is the
finer body of mcD( and women.
Neither will be perfect, but among
tho trporters of the press we prom
ise Dr. Gunsaulus he will find as
manv graduates of colleges, as many,
men'and women of thought and read-1
ing, as many whose daily toil ardu-
ous and exacting is sweetened by
love and a high purpose, as among
the members of his own profession.
We assure Dr. (iunsaulus this is
We assure the doctor also that in
all this hundred newspaper reporters
he would not tind one man or woman
so deaf to the dictates of truth and
justice as to deliver such a diatribe
against the members of any profes
sion as the doctor delivered last night
from the safe eminence of his pulpit,
secure from the just wrath of the
persons he outraged.
Newspaper reporters are as the
Lord and circumstances have made
them. They are men and women,
knowing from hard experience both
good and evil. Their lives are hard
and full of temptations. Hut their
worst temptation to untruth, if Dr.
Gunsaulus did but know it, lies in
their constant contact with men and
women of other professions even of
the cloth. They picture the world
as they tind it, the more truthfully
because, as a rule, they lack the
temptations which turn aside law
yers, merchants, doctors ami even
clergymen from the truth.
A TKIP TO EUROPE.
lie v. M. A. Nordstrom has Words of
Praise for the Scott Medical Insti
tute Catarrh of the Nose, Throat
Kev. M. A. Nordstrom says: "I
am a clergyman residing at Wood
hull. 111.. and have frequently
thought I would have to resign my
charge. The cause of my trouble
was catarrh, and that in its worst
form, as I have been so informed by
noted specialists in Europe ami
America. I grew very weak, had
severe headache, and spots would ap
pear before my eyes, mucus dropped
continually into my throat, and,
passing into my stomach, caused dis
tressing" pain- 1 became deaf in
fact so bad I could scarcely hear.

Having been in this condition for

acquainted at the Augustana college,
at which institution I studied for the
mini-try, I was there informed of
the success of the Scott Medical In
stitute in treat ing such diseases. I
am thankful to sav I visited them,
and happy to say :-C U 11 E D." Af
ter treating in Europe and this coun
try without success, I can say truth
fully I am cured, and the physicians
of the Scott Medical Institute cured
me in two months."
A copy of this statement can be
seen at the Scott Medical Institute,
with Kev. Mr. Nordstrom's signa
TAKE TREATMENT NOW!
Time and again the physicians of
the Scott Medical Institute have ad
vised patients in desperate stages of
catarrhal trouble to wait until sum
mer before taking treatment. Time
and again they have urged the neces
sity of taking treatment while the
weather was favorable to a cure.
Now is that time. Those who suf
fer from catarrh should take advan
tage of all the influences that operate
now in favor of a cure. They shonbl
not put off treatment until next win
ter's stormy days, but should pru
dently mend their roof while the
sun shines." Now is the time, and
the opportunity is just what is de
sired for the worst cases. Do not let
it go by, but place yourself under
treatment of the Scott Medical Insti
tute, and have done for you in the
next month or two what might not
be possible to do until next summer.

A Step in the Right Direction.
At the beginning of 1S93 the boy resolves to look up the questions that come tr hi
mind in school work and at home THAT'S "INDUSTRY."
Soon we see him steadily climbing upward, growing in knowledge day by
Hrc long he finds himself drawn to his work as by a magic charm. He gets g
pleasure out of it; and at every odd moment he runs to his Encyclopedia Britannic:. :
satisfy his inquiring mind about some question connected with his lessons, or it may i
about his games, or some curious tree, or strange animal, a quecrlj' constructed h .
or something else seen on the way from school or while at play. THAT'S "HAlil i .'
Now there are different sorts of habits. You. know there are that is, if you havt :z
experience. One boy gets in the habit of playing truant and thinks he enjoys it : an
other gets in the habit of smoking and it becomes bearable to him; another gets in
habit of idling away his time and calls it a necessary recreation.
But the boy shown in the picture has now formed the habit of investigation. Ik
finds rest and recreation in the change of employment thus brought about. It wouldn't
be so if he were forced to do it; but he has got so in the habit of it that it is a pleav.re
to him; and no power on earth can prevent this boy from accomplishing whatever re
sets out to accomplish. THAT'S "SUCCESS."
To follow out this idea in reality you. of course, want Tin: ENCYCLOPEDIA
BRITTANICA, and you can have it if you get your request in before the limited v.v.v '
ber is spoken for.
