WANTS TO KNOW
A "constant reader" (probably)
on some other fellow's subscrip
tion; has asked the editor of the
Times, of Pocahontas, W. Va.,
why he didn't "write" more origi
nal matter for his paper. Mis reply
seems to cover the query and helps
all of us to explain that "manana
feeling." lie says:
"Hardhearted as we may appear
it must be confessed that we may
have some regard for the feeling
of our readers. Had constant read
er seen very much from our facile
pen, perhaps he would not choose
some more. We can clip better
stuff than we ever dreamed ol wait
ing. Besides it is some easier and
quicker and can be read and deci
pheted by printers. Our type sift
ers have a habit of going through
a copy like a forest fire. If the con
tinuous wear of the shears in sup
plying them with clippings has
worn callous places, what sort of a
foundation would our few remain
ing locks have if we had to get it
up. The second issue we ever print
ed scooped the bottom of our
mental scrap pile, and we have
been going on the bumpers ever
since. Our effusions effervesce now
about as freely as sorghum through
a straw at fortv degrees below
freezing point. Besides we have
another thing to take up our time.
Meditation is the prime factor in
getting up copy; and being an ad
herent to one church by birth, to
another by marriage and to the
world by inclination, belonging to
thirty-nine secret organizations and
the secretary of ten committses in
each; impelled by a solemn vow to
spend a short time each day in
taking sufficient nourishment, cus
sing the weather, hoeing in the
garden, going fishing and playing
ball, playing with the children:
with two thousand open accounts
on a half a dozen ledgers that have
not been balanced since the war;to
think up seventeen different ex
cuses each hour as to why certain
orders for job work have not been
completed on time; to wade through
miles of dreary wastes in the daily
press in order to talk intelligently
on Buster Brown's latest episode,
the shortest route to Mars: Fritz
gammon's chance to knock the
block olf some other bullet-headed
son-ol-a-gun, Roosevelt's last es
capade; patching up an engine and

The Rock Island excursion
Wednesday night, brought in sev
eral coaches of homeseekers. The
editor has met and talked with
many of them who express a sur
prise that we grow such crops
here and that we have a town show
ingmore progress than any they no
ticed on the trip. "Why," one of
them said,"That corn looks like
old Missouri." He was looking at a
small exhibit in this office. There
are few people who are coming here
now that don't stick, and our coun
try will almost double again in
population in six months.
