About A Newspaper.
The Louisville Courier-Journal has
the following sensible remarks regard
ing the management of a newspaper:
Some people estimate the ability
of a newspaper and the talent of its ed
itor by the quantity of its original
matter. It is comparitively an easy
task for a frothy writer to pour out
daily a column of words—upon any
aud all subjects. His ideas may flow
iv one weak, washy, everlasting Hood,
and the command of his language
may enable bira to string them to
gether like bunches of onions, and
yet his paper may be a meager and
poor concern. Indeed the mere writ
ing part of editing a paper is but a
smalt portion' of the work. The care,
the time employed in selecting, is far
more important, the tact of a good
editor is oetter shown by his selection
than anything else; and that, we
know, is half the battle. But, as we
have said, an editor ought to be esti
mated and his labor understood and
appreciated by the general conduct of
his paper—its tone, its uniform con
sistent course, its aims, manliness
its dignity and propriety. To pre
serve these as they should be pre
served is enough to occupy the time
and attention of any man. If to
these be added the general supervision
of the newspaper establishment,
which most editors have to encoun
ter, the wonder is how they find time
to write at all.
Messed are the dressmakers, as the
little darky said when endeavoring to
repeat a verse of the beatitudes.
"Sinful sectarianism" is what a
Unitarian theological student called
it, because a Methodist girl refused
to let him hug her in a camp meeting
"There is no sunset in heaveu," says
a noted divine. "We go further than
that," says an exchange; "there's no
getting up of nights to draw the ba
by's legs back under the cover.,'
Mark Twain c<Mild have married
sixty-five different girls for love, but
he waited till he could love one with
a coal mine In her own name.
A Chicago clairvoyant says that
Charlie Ross is in Heaven. She was
determined to locate him where no de
tective could strike his trail.

that there are forty-four yards of trim

aggerates. There are but thirty
A newspaper reporter who forgot
to address Donaldson, the baloonist,
as "Professor," had the doors locked
on him and was chased out of the yard
by a dog.
An old citizen of Vermont observes
that when a Post-office clerk gets too
high-nosed to lick a stamp on to a let
ter it is time that the country had a
change of administration.
Duluth is fifteen years old and nev
er had but one breach of promise suit,
and that was settled by giving the
plaintiff's father a pair of cow-hide
boots with red tops.
The Rev.-Murray condemns the re
ligous excitement in England. The
true way to serve the Lord, according
to his ideas, is to own eight race hors
es and brag up the Adirondac regions.
Lexington was a great battle, all
things considered, but that's no ex
cuse for charging a ocnteiinial visitor
thirty-nve cents for a piece of cus
tard pie and leave to sit on a horse
block to eat it.
I asked a maiden of seventy three,
how old a lassie would get to be, ere

The latest Irish bull we read of is in

Dr. Hall says that a person should
not take over two drinks of water per
day, but water doesn't cost auytbing,
and if a man wants to drink a barrel
an hour he'll do it in spite of all the
Dr. Halls in America.
A man digging a well in New Jer
sey came across a hoop-skirt eighteen
feet beneath the surface of the ground,

A Waterbury, Connecticut, baker
lately smokod 100 cigars in thirteen

An Eastern paper says the spectacle
of a party of men coming from Cali
fornia to Vermont to work a gold and
silver mine would be something
strange indeed; but there is a story
that some Cahfornians, having tested

The latest wrinkle with a woman of
fashion is that of having a model of
