* Running a Newspaper. *
George Ade says about every other
fellow you meet thinks he could run
a good hotel, and we have come to
the conclusion that about every one
you meet could run a fine newspaper,
remarks Eugene 1,'Hote, the genial
editor and publisher of the Milford
(lil t Herald, editorially in a recent
issue of that bright and interesting
paper. Men will take the liberty to
tell you bow to run a paper, asserts
I. I lote, when they wouldn't think of
hinting to the merchant how to con
duct his store or tell the preacher
what to preach. They pay good money
for schools and don't know whether
Johnny is learning the rule of three
or how to hold a cigarette gracefully,
but when it comes to the newspaper,
sizzling eats, there's where they all
get off. During the past week a friend
wanted to know why we didn't try
and run a paper a little more along
the lines of how Christ would run a
paper. W;> don't know just how that
would bo. In the first place If Christ
was back on earth we don't believe
he would go Into the newspaper busi
ness nt all. and if he did we are sure
he wouldn't come to Mllford to do It.
If our friend had wanted It more on
a religious plane we could tell him
frankly that it wouldn't pay. There
Is not an editor or a preacher that
could tell the truth for thirty days and
stay In the community in which they
live. If our friend doubts this let him
try telling the absolute truth for just
one week and see where he lights.
We never were much to "soft soap"
or "blarney" anyone; In fact our
bluntuess and honesty of speech has
coBt us many friends. Tell the truth!
We aren't going to do It. yet we be
lieve there would be a better under
standing with humanity, many times,
if people had the courage to do It. A

he said: "Married, Miss Sylvia Rhode

evening at the Baptist church. The
bride was an ordinary town girl who
don't know any more than a rabbit
about cooking and never helped her
mother three days in her life. She Is
not a beauty by any means and has a
gait like a duck. The groom is an
