throughout the country, and by the en

a view to keeping labor on the job in

in view of its confessed ignorance
about poker the editorial observations
of the Newberry Observer are surpris
ingly clever. A rudimentary knowledge
of poke is essential to "efliciency" in
journalism although it is a same that
the laity should beware of. The tech
nical terms of the game have become
the colloquial expressions of philan
thropists, philosophers, statesmen andl
even pulpiteers. The "square deal" of
the dear Colonel would be of no sig
niflicance were it not for the saturation
of the American language with them.
Occasionally we hear eloquent parsons
in the midst of hortatory appeal ex
claim that some decision or other is
"up to" the congregation. The New
berry Observer is among newspapers
unique. It is the only effective news
paper published that has never learned
the principles of the game. Curiously,
however, it has absorbed much of its
wisdom and one is driven to suspect
that its editor is one of those rare men
endowed with an instinctive under
