Eft, "A BORN JOURNALIST."
Ww -rnr- tockg man who kxew it all.
Opio Read, who is a professional
humorist, knows a sham when he
sees one, and he lakes off one of
that class in the following sketch in
the Arkansaxe Traveler:
George D. Prentice, while editor
of the Louisville Journal, was often
importuned by college men who
panted for a chance to send n quiver
through the great reading world. A
graduate namod Edwards was so
fortunate as to secure a trial on the
Journal. Ho was u modest young
man, and did not claim that ho
could, the first week, take quite nil
the work off Mi". Prentice's hands,
but ho knew that after tho first
month ho could take the place of the
chief editor and discharge his duties
in a way that would render the
readers oblivious to the change.
The great journalist had, by a very
dear friend, been recommended to
Prentice, consequently the editor
was anxious that the young man
should do well. During tho after
noon of tho third day, Edwards went
into Prentice's room, and, with an
air of self-confidence, began to boast
of his newspaper acquirements.
"There is a great deal in the
newspaper business after all." said
Mr. Prentice agreed
was a great deal in the
business after all.
"Yes, sir," Edwards
"when I was at school
I u&ed to
think that a man could learn all
about the -whole thing in a day or
two, but he can't do it. 1 think,
though, that some men inherit a
kind of insight into the journalistic
professional, don't you?"
"It seems so," Mr. Prentice re
plied. "Yes," Edwards lcsumcd, "some
men have a natural facility for
forming the opinions of others ; and,
sir, the beauty of it is tho natural
product journalist forms opinion so
skillfully that the man who reads it
swallows it, and, by George, sir,
thinks that he himself formed it."
"Very often the case, no doubt,"
replied Mr. Prentice.
"Now," Edwards went on, "that's
what I regard as journalism. None
of your slipshod business about
that. I suppose, Mr. Prentice, you
have observed that I have learned to
say things pleasantly?"
"That's one acquisition. Now,
what next would you advise?"
"Learn something to say."
"Why, I I " stammered Mr.
Edwards, "I thought that "
"No explanations are necessary,"
said Mr. Prentice. Then, turning
in his chair and bestowing a quizzi
cal look upon the upstart, the man,
whoso idlest pen-stroke was some
times a gauging pasquinade, said:
"Your foresight is too clear to
enable you to become a journalist!"
"Why, you sec through the whole
thing. You can look into tho busi
ness of a newspaper like a prophet
could look into the future. This in
the cud, must render the business
distasteful to you, for, as all strol
lers will tell you, the most pleasant
road to traverse is the one that offers
the largest number of surprises a
glimpse of shining water, a moment's
view of rich landscape. Therefore
I would advise you to give up tho
newspaper business, for it will un
doubtedly become distasteful, like a
monotonous path too often gone
over. I know that it would be a strug
gle to tear yourself away now, but
you should make the sacrifice. You
owe it to your father, your mother,
"I know there is much truth in
what you say, Mr. Prentice, but I
have given so much thought to this
business, that now, to throw it away
and engage in something else, would
be changing the course of a life
would be like changing the channel
of a mighty river." I
Edwards smote his troubled breast,
lifted up his mustache, put a finger
on each sido of his mouth, and
missed tho spittoon six inches.
"I foresee the struggle," and Mr.
Prentice, "but becauso a struggle is
foreseen is no reason that it should
be averted. Life is a btruggle."
"But Mr. Prentice, what would
you adviso me to do?"
"Your foresight prompts me to
suggest tho advisability of running
a government. I don't know any
thing about the chances for getting
.that kind of situation nt present,
but I do know that you could do up
tho work to the delight of tho queen
and to the taste of the entire royal
f -household. Let mo see. How arc
' you in G,rcck?"
"Probably you might get a situa
tion as a writer of circus posters."
"I wouldn't like that."
"No? Well, how would you like to
lloat down tho river on a raft, spend
ing your spare moments in the
Btuday of current navigation, sand
bank philosophy, and the wholesome
casuistry of ferrying who charged
double price when tho water is low,
? sees one. and ho lakes oil one 01 4!b&
becauso it Is low, find double price
when the water is high because it is
'You aio milking fun of mo."
"Oh, no; quite impossible. I
ennuot mako anything of you.
Heie, Bill," calling a porter, "let
in that other graduate and we'll give
him a turn."
