Newspaper Page Text
Few imagine the responsibilities and
the labors of a newspaper writer, says
the Wilmington Star, and fewer still are
anxious to bestow praise where it is due,
or to withhold censure where it would
be proper to so do. Many gentlemen of
leisure, unable themselves to pen a
grammatinl phrase, are quite ready to
rriticise unsparingly, and to acidulate
their critical remarks with a scorn
that reflects little credit on their
heart and less on their head.
le who writes for a newspaper must
often form opinions without time for
reflection, anl write paragraphs with
out the opportunity of revision. Be
must frequently write of that which he
only pax tially understands, and must
tqually often eject from his mind arti
eles that haste constructed, and correc
tion would ituprove.
. in truth, often his labors are exposed
to the uwerciiess criticism of those who
too willingly eensure without regard to
propriety, and too eagerly deny credit
without re'cct to justice.
When it is remembered the press gen
erally relies on report for its information,
it can scarctly be supposed that its au
thority should always be beyond the
imputation of incorrectness, or its judg
jment always prove unerring.
- When it is borne in mind the writer
of newspaper, articles has few ,minutes
f.w refection, none for revision, but lit
ile opportunity to arouse latent powers,
and but small compass to display 'ac
-quirements, it can scarcely, with jus
tice, be supposed that he should never
fail, wher e failure is imminent, and suc
cess unattended with praise or accom
panied with credit.
And when one dwells on the magni
tude of bik labors, and reviews the vari
etv of subjects of which he must treat,
it is not startling that he occasionally
coumtits errors which are rarely forgiv
en, and fails to attain that standard
which may relieve him from censure ;
but not er.title him to the encomia of
the generouc, and barely shields him
from the sneers of the cynical.
Twrible Death-Bad Scene.
Mention bac already been made in
these columns relative to the terrible
death, in Patterson, N. J, of L1r. Ecker
son. The P:ttterson Guardian gives the
following additional facts; a neighbor
who was engaged holding Mr. Eckerson
after the symptoms of hydrophobia be
gan to mtanifest itself, gives a touching
incident of the l:ast scenes. Just before
bis death, while tempcrarily relievtd
from violent spasmodic struggles, Mr.
Ykerson desired to see his wife before
his death. Requiring from four to six
men to hold him all the time, of course
it was not p ident, his wife being ill in
the other -room, and even if he were able,
-il was thought his dreadful condition,
held by men all the while to prevent
.Instant injury fronm his sudden fits or
spasms, might make her worse. S
-hegged and continued to intreat them
to let him lo.k upon his wife once more

.and neighab.rs could hold out no longer.
and consented to take him to her, he

which was foaming all the while fromt
htamouth, lest any ofit-should get upon
-her, a:,d closing his lips tightly with a
.desperate e-ffort, was borne to her bed
Ade. Bending down his lips met thosec
ho had so often kissed in joy, love and
hily affection. And then with one longi
anic upon a face he well knew he ought
i to uiek to see again, he bade her a I
iabt adieu. The strong men who gazed

they saw the dying map, who writh lips
a,ril1 compiressed, signified the necessity

and was then ready to die. Shortly

and behold, a great hue and cry was
aled for me, and after a long search I was
icovered prostrated by long exertion, fa,
igue and abstinence, ad covered up by
beets of paper in a corner of the sanctum,
rhere ubdoubtedly I should have lain and
reathed-away the sweetness of my young

society as to be missed. Well, "man's Inhu%

mourn,"- that so. But those that rise must
falt-sometimes, and great was my fall, and
I have no disposition to again assume the
local management of this paper. I do it
under protest. Sorry that the Senior's liver
turns him upside down. The junior belongs
to the cavt-get.a-way%club. and is the sec.
retary of the inconsolable society, with
Spriggins as president,and Chloride of Lime,
vice president. The society meets to-night,
and as I have a complimentary, will take
notes for future reference. I have digressed
-but now return to state that I am grati

my spot, neither did our Ethiopean press
man change his skin. Right glad that some
things don't change in these nihilistic days.
But what a sight; presented itself-shades of
Guttenberg, Schoeffer, Faust and Franklin !
The bed of the press was covered with sheep
foot, shooting stick and quoins, the blanket
rumpled and no clean sheet laid on; pi from
Pearl to Pica everywhere, and the manipu
lators of type, sticks, and gallies, watching
miniature women with school-books in their
hands. Its perfectly audacious that the
men won't quit teasing the women. They
won't leave them alone-never. If it hadn't
been for women, there would have been no
troubadours and tournaments and chivalry
and sheep's eyes: and kings wouldn't have
set the commons to fighting so often. Well,
women-that is their beaoty-(they are the
indirect cause) have forced the shedding of
heaps of innocent blood. Bat men are be
giugng at last to learn their lessons like
good little boys, and among them this one
that 'beauty is as beauty does,' and that un
adorned beauty is the prettiest, that true
beauty is the poetry of a gentle nature and
a loving heart.
But here I am again, dear readers of the
Herald, all owing to that irrepressible bile
of the Senior's, which (between you and me)
I believe is mostly if not er -ely engendered
by his over-exerti:ns put,.,rth in the con,
sumption of Pratt & Fiat's strongest re
galias which sent him off to the springs
to wash away by their use if possible the
narcotic influence, and as before when the
Senior was absent the junior turns up sick,
but, in candor, I must say I think his sick"
ness this time is very different in its nature,
for last time he had the shakes, but this
time his symptoms have caused some one
else to get shook-but Its an ill wind that
blows nobody good, and this one has given
me a chance to again present myself to you.
gentle reader. About ten minutes since in
rushed the sick junior, (looking remarkably
well for a sick man) and throwing at me a
bunch of.manuscript, said, have that all set
for second page, and you see that that prob
lem is set right. Now what problem does he
mean? we have so many: problems now-a
days, and they do bother us so that I wish
the senior was here, for he knows how to:set
all such things to rights; they don't bother
him much, I tell you, especially If the win
dow is open; there is only one kind of prob
lem that bothers him, and that is how to
keep that list.of delinquent subs. shorter.
0, 1 have it, he means that chess problem;
everything is chess. now, and all the boys
and girls go in to mate, but the most inter'.
esting game is that which is now being
played between Mr. S!owandsure and Young
Velocipede. The game is still progressing,
and creates considerable .excitement among
the frien:is of both pairties, who feel deeply
interested in the result. The friends of
Yo-ing Velocipede are confident of his suc
cess, which is warranted by his masterly
moves, throughout the game, especially the
the lasbt coup d'etat, by which he has com'.
pelled his adversary to abandon his queen
and threatens to give mate, but the friends
of Slowandsure are equally sanguine of
success, claim'ng that its only when close
pushed that he displays that keen apprecia
tion of the game which has heretofore
brought him out victorious in previous tour
naments, and that he will probably resort to
his previous tactics and compel his adver
sary to give stale mate.
So much interest is felt in the result of this
game that should it terminate before our
next issue, an extra will announce the Im
Glad to hear that the Senior has arrived a,t

Through the widely ceirculated medium
of the Herald's columns and the assistance
and assiduity of Assistant Marshal Peterson,
I found my dog Penny, at the city of Silver
Street, and he now gladdens my young
heart with the wag of his double kink,
whenever I make my appearance. Th is is
another evidence of the advantage of ad
vertising-he was lost and be is found.
In behalf of myself I offer the kind and
indulgent readers of the Herald, any amount
of apology for my crudeness. I am a very1
young devil, as .1 before stated, and may
have fallen into'some of th'e errors common
to novitlgtes, and I beg to inform my nu
merous friends that when I shall have suf
ficently recovered from the eifects of the
higher atmosphere in which I found myself,
and have inhaled enough of this our lower
atmosphere,I shall make hash for theHerald
(under protest) and add a leaf from the life
of a lover!
I've heard a good deal of late about Chib
nee laborers, did'nt think they had got any
of them here yet. but it must,be so for I saw
a very respected old friend down the street
with one of their hats on. They are big
things if you want to keep cool.
Here is a bit of French philosophy.
It is set down to the credit of Alexander
Domas, fils : "Walk two hours every
day. Sleep seven hours every night
Get up as soon as you wake. Speak
only when necessary, and say one half1
what you can think. Don't write any
thing~but what you can sign. Think
neither too much nor too little of money;<
it it a good servant, but a bad master. I
Beware of women before you are twenty.
Avoid them after you are forty."
"Typ me a ballad, ladye fayre, my

and to a weird-like ayr the lady.e fayre
attunes her mandolyn. "I do not care
for a wild romance of ye days of old,"
says he, "but rather I'd hear, if my
ladye please, some touching melodic."
And over ye ladye's music-book ye gal-I

sweet and angel voice, "(Captain Jinks

With dyspeptics everything is wrong.
Food does not digest ; sleep does not re
fresh ; wine does not cheer ; smiles do not
gladden ; music does not charm, nor can
any other joy enter the brenat of the miser
able dyspeptic. You must get rid of it, or
it will become seated and confirmed, and
life will be a burden and existence a curse.

New Base For Artifical Teeth.
I have succeeded in introducing a new
base for artificial teeth which has given
great satisfaction in European and Northern
cities. It is cleanly and durable, and ad
mits of a fine polish without metalic taste
or any inconvenience to the wearer. All
those wishing artificial teeth, would do well
to call and examine before purchasing oth
er styles. All manner of work done upon
scientific principles. Those who prefer
Vulcanite Work, can, by leaving impres
sions with me, be supplied from experien
ced Northern dentists, with whom I have
made arrangements to have work done
upon short notice.
