re desire correspondence frwvn
all parts of the roiinlnytyiid ask
those interested in the affiiirs of

peions do not write because writing
is not their business, or because
they are out of practice, and fear
lest they should mistake in spelling
or composition. To all such, we say
that manuscript is not subject to
public inspection, and will always
appear to as good advantage as we
can make it.

pondence from every part of the
country. What we want is sharp,'
short, newsy items, not long essays
of no general interest wo have not
space for such.
