paper falls together without work or
concerted activity or puan. Rev.
McLeod, a Presbyterian minister at
Pasadena, was of the opinion. and ask
ed to be allowed to edit an edition of
the Pasadena Star. The editor gladly
zecepted the 'opoitunity to go fishing
-and the minister took uu his duties in
the newspaper office. This is how he
ifelt when he'found himself at the end
of the task, which, it must be said,
had been done quite creditably:
"My time Is almost up as I pen this
last line; my hand is almost paralyz

free to confess .trat I am right glad
to vacate the holy spot. Such rush
and riot and disarray. Such a jumble
of potpourri; it strikes ine as the-ef

-to do it lightning quick.

'words, "The earth was without form
