TWO NEWSPAPERS WORTH HAVING
George P. Stannard of the real es
tate firm of Griffi & Stannard of Kal
ispell has in his possession two news
papers which can justly be designated
as priceless relics of the earliest at
tempts at newspaper making. The
fact that one of the newspapers is
nearly 200 years old is of itself sufR
cient to place its varue above price.
The copy is doubtless the oldest news
paper in Montana, if not in the United
States.
"ft The one of the two papers of greater
interest is an issue of The Tatler, pub
lished at London. It bears date "From
Thursday, March 23, to Saturday,
March 25, 1710," thus showing that The
Tatler .appeared twice a week. The
number at the top is 150, which indi
cates that The Tatler had been in ex
istence 75 weeks or a year and a half
before the copy which Mr. Stannard I
has was run off the press. It will be
seen thereby that the paper is one of
the first publications in the English
lang. e. Justt under the title is a line
conve.W A to:'the paper's constituency
thti I rmtrtat the publication
w :' 'IanoI BiOlerstaff, Esq."
the copy in' Kalispell has been
f.e~4 and occupies a prominent place
tabove Mr. Stqnnard's desk. In
orm,, and "makeup" the paper is
uniqs* Its size is about 12 by 8 inches,
and 5ttconsists of a single sheet, print
ed on bgth sides. The type is of the
most.tficient style, characters that
greatly resemble the letter '1" being
used for "s," and every noun is cap
italized, as is done in, the German lan
guage to-day.
The Tatler contains but on. article
of "news," which fills three of h.e four
columns, the remaining column being
'given up to advertising. But, while
there is but a single article, that one is
a mighty entertaining one, and dem
onstrates the fact that, In 1710, people
-married people especially-acted pret
ty much the same as they do now, and
the sentiments expressed therein show
a clear understanding on the part of
the author of the subject which he dis
cusses. The article is a communication
to The Tatler, and was evidently called
out by something which previously ap
peared in the paper.
Isaac Biokerstaff, Esq., introduces the
communication thus:
"From My Apartment, March 24:
"I have received the following Let.
ter upon the Subject of my last Paper.
The Writer of it tells me I there spoke
of Marriage as one that knows it only
by Speculation and for that Reason
sends mem his Sense of it, as drawn
frotl Experience."
The letter itself then follows, and in
It the writer unbosoms himself in this
wise of his ex .rence in matrimonial
giays:
"Mr. B.--I have read your Paper o
this Day and think you have done the
Nuptial State a great deal of Justice
In the Authority you give to Pliny,
whose Letters to his Wife you have
here translated: But give me Leave
to tell you, That it is impossible for
you that are a Batchelor to have so
just a Notion of this Way of Life as to
touchthe Affections of your Readers
in a Particular, wherein every Man's
own Heart suggests more than the
nicest Observer can form to himself
without Experience. I, therefore, who
am an old married Man, have sat down
to give you an Account of the Matter
from my own Knowledge, and the Ob
servations which I have made upon
others in that most agreeoble or
wretched Condition.

Trifles are commonly Occasions of the
greatest Anxiety; for Contradiction be
ing a Thing wholly unusual between a
new married Couple, the smallest in
stance of it is taken for the highest
Injury; and it very seldom happens,
That the Man is slow enough in as
suming the Character of an Husband,
or the Woman quick enough in conde
scending to that of a Wife. It imme
diately follows that they think they
have all the Time of their Courtship
been talking in Masks to each other,
and therefore begin to act like disap
pointed People. Philander finds Delta
ill natured and impertinent; and Delia
Philander surly and inconstant.
"I have known a fond Couple quarrel
in the very Honeymoon about cutting
up a Tart: Nay, I could name Two,
who after having had Seven Children,
fell out and parted Beds upon the boil
ing of a Leg of Mutton. My very next
Neighbors have not spoke to one an
other these Three Days, because they
differed in their Opinions whether the
Clock should stand by the Window, or
over the Chimney. It may seem strange
to you who are not a married Man,
when I tell you how the least Trifle can
strike , Woman dumb for a Week to
gether. But if you ever enter into this
State you will find that the soft Sex as
often express their Anger by obstinant
Silence as by an ungovernable
Clamour.
"Those indeed who begin this Course
e of Life without Jars at their setting
t out, arrive within a few months at a
g pitch of Benevolence and Affection
- of which the most perfect Friendship is
but a feint Resemblance; as in the un
fortunate Marriage, the most minute
e and indifferent Things are the Objects
r of the sharpest Resentment; so in an
g happy one they are the occasions of
e the most exquisite Satisfaction. For
a what does not oblige in one we love?
- What does not offend in one we dislike?
e For these Reasons I take it for a Rule,
- That in marriage the chief Business is
d to acquire a Profession in favor of each
r other. They should consider one an
o:ther's Words and Actions with a sq
cret Indulgence. There should be al
ways an inward Fondness pleading for
1 each other, such as may add new Beau
ties to every Thing that is excellent,
give Charms to what is indifferent, and
a cover every Thing that is defective.
For want of this kind Propensity and
Biass of Mind, the married Pair often t
take Things iii of each other, which no I
one else would take notice of in either
a of them.
"But the most unhappy Circum
stance of all is, Where each Party is
i always laying up Fuel for Dissension I
and gathering together a Magazine of l
1 Provocations to exasperate each other E
with when they are out of Humour.
I Theze people in common Discourse
make no Scruple to let those who are
by know they are quarreling with one
another and think they are discreet
enough, if they conceal from Company
the Matters which they are hinting at.I
About a Week ago, I was entertained I
for a whole Dinner with a mysterious t
conversation of this Nature; out of t
which I could learn no more than that t
the Husband and Wife were angry at t
one another. We had no sooner sat d
down, but says the Gentleman of the p
House, in order to raise Discourse, I
thought Margarita sung extremely well o
last Night. Upon this, says the Lady. a
looking as pale, I suppose she had ii
Cherry coloured Ribands on. t
"'No.' answered the Husband, with a t
Flush in his Face, 'but she had laced p
shoes.' I look upon it. that a stander v
by, on such Occasions has as much s
Reason to be out of Countenance as J
either of the Combattants. To turn off v
my Confusion, and seem regardless of o
what had passed. I desired the Servant c

health offlcer orders general vacci

Preference of Elder to Wine Vinegar.
In the midst of their Discourse, there
appeared a Dish of Chickens and Spar
agrass when'the husband seemed dis
posed to lay aside all Dispute; and
looking upon her with a great deal of
good Nature gald,. Pray, my Dear, will
you help my Friend to a Wing of the
Fowl that lies next to you, for I think
it looks extremely well. The Lady in
stead of answering him, addressing
herself to me, Pray, Sir, said she, do
you in Surrey reckon the white or the
black Legged Fowls the best? I found
the Husband changed Colour at the
question, and before I could answer,
asked me whether we did not call Hops
Broom in our Country? I quickly
found they did not ask Questions so
much out of C(uriosity as Anger: For
which Reason I thought fit to keep my
Opinion to myself, and as an honest
man ought, (when he sees Two Friends
in Warmth with each other) I took the
first Opportunity to leave them by
themselves.
"You see, Sir, I have laid before you
only small Incidents, which are seem
ingly trivial, but take it from a Man
who am very well experienced in this
State, they are principally Evils of this
Nature which make marriages unhap
pY. At the same Time, That I may do
justice to this excellent Institution, I
must own to you, There are unspeak
able Pleasures which are regarded in
the computation of the Advantages of
Marriage, as the others are in the usual
Survey that is made of its Misfortunes.
"Lovemore and his Wife live together
in the happy profession of each otht rs
Hearts and by that Means have no in
different Moments, but their whole Life
is one continued Scene of Delight.
Their Passion for each other communi
cates a certain Satisfaction, like that
which they themselves are in, to all
that approach them. When she enters
the Place where he is, you sec a Pleas
ure which he cannot concehl, nor he or
any one else describe. In so consum
mate an Affection, the Presence of the
Person beloved, has the effect of the
most agreeable conversation. Whether
they have matter to talk of or not, they
enjoy the Pleasures of Society, and at
the same 'time the Freedom of Solitude.
Their odinary Life is to be preferred to
the happiest Moments of other Lovers.
In a Word, they have each of them
great Merit, live in the Esteem of all
who know them, and seem but to com
ply with 'the Opinions of their Friends
in the just Value they have for each
other."
The advertisements in the fourth and
only remaining column of The Tatler
consist of the reception of proposals
"for printing the Lucubrations of Isaac
Bickerstaff, Esq." The advertisement
goes on to name the works of the au
thor and to describe them fully so that
publishers may know just how to bid
on the "lucubrations" of Isaac Bicker
staff, Esq.
At the bottom of The Tatler's col
umns is the announcement that the pa
per is "sold by John Morphew, near
Stationers' Hall, where advertisements
are taken in."
The other ancient newspaper in Mr.
Stannard's possession is a copy of the
Dublin News Letter, which bears date
"From Tuesday, June 23, to Saturday,
June 27, 1741." The copy is No. 468,
Vol. V. Evidently the Dublin News
Letter belonged to Richard Reilly, for
that gentleman's name appears at the
top of the paper, in large letters, above
the title line. This copy cames nearer
the present idea of newspapers than
does The Tatler. The News Letter is a
print of four pages, divided into a de
cent number of columns. The first page
of the News Letter contains a credit
able cut of "The plan of Carthagena,
its Harbour and Forts." In picturing
the "harbour" the art department of
the News Letter left no doubt as to the
position of the British ships, for the
vessels are about three times as con
spicuous as any mountain or other ob
ject on land or sea. The location of
various points of concern, in the "plan
of Carthagena" are numbered, with

In its foreign news columns, to
which a greater portion of the pl.lper is
devoted, is included the latest doings in
Poland, Holland, Russia. Italy, Spain
and France. One of the items relates
that there has been a disturbance in
Mecca, "which will probably be the
cause of a 'b.dody war between the
grand signior anr the konll kan."
All the news::ltems are signed with
the initials of the correspondents, thus:
GE, SJE, MS, M, LE, LG, and othere,
contributing a few lines get their
"name in the paper" without cost.
Of greatest interest to Mr. Stannard
is the announcement in the News Let
ter of the dates of the "summer as
sizes. 1741," under the heading "In Cotn
naught circuit," it is stated that Jus
tices Rofe and Eaton Stannard will
hold court upon a certain date.
Now, this Justice Eaton Stannard
was the great, great, great grandfather
of Mr. Stannard of Kalispell. Eaton
Stannard was a member of parliament
from Middleton from 1727 to his ,e
cease in 1755. He was counsel for the
celebrated Anglesea peerage case im
1743. He bore from Cork to Dean Swift
the box containing the patent of the

Dean in 1737. HIe was also one of the
executors of the Dean's will and died
