Sometimes things get Into the make
up mans bands on the big newspa
pers, and find their way Into the pa
per to be read by the subscriber that
should not be there. One night, short
ly before the hour of going to press
of a pretty big mernlng newspaper,
one of the linotype operators ran out
of "cop)", while the make-up man
was roaring for something to fill up
with. It waa some time before tehre
was nny more copy brought in from
the reporters' desks and the operator
killing the time, set up a little atuff
for his own amusement, and one of
them was grabbed by the hurrying
make-up man and put In at the bottom
of an editorial column. Next morn
ing readers saw the following lines,
"Two o'clock, no copy, Ohl Hell."
