FUTURE SHOULD BE EASY.
Newspaper Man Surely Has Woes
Enough on Earth.
The ignorance of the average citi
zen in regard to the inner workings of
a newspaper is something remarkable.
Some of them appear to think that
everybody on the newspaper, from the
office boy to the editor in chief, writes
or is responsible for everything that
appears in each number. It is not al
together an uncommon experience for
a newspaper writer to be accosted on
.he street, and remonstrated with
about a certain item that appeared in
his paper. After a brief cross-exam
ination. it becomes apparent that the
Item referred to was a dispatch from
some distant quarter of the globe.
Sorely, the overworked newspaper
man has a lot to put up with. He
should have an easy ••sit** in the here-

Why Good Bys Multiply.
What te the psychological reason
which makes women prolong good*
bys? iskt the Brookline Times. Mrs.
G. B. Carpenter, president of the Chi
cago Woman's Club says: 'I should
say that It is because woman, as a
rule, does not think oct logically what
she says and does not roneentrale her
mind upon one line of thought. When
one woman meets another she doea
not do as a man would and gather to
gether in her mind the things she
wants to say to this particular person.
She has not made any inventory of
them and consequently she begins hit
nr miss. Then, when it has apparently
ill been said, she thinks of something
ei»e. So she hastily calls her friend
back. Perhaps, or rather probably,
the other woman does the same thing,
and so good byi multiply.*'
