The "rtmes contains an interesting
column article giving the article In
the Outlook of Saturday, wherein the
ex-presldent of the United States
makes his debut as a professional jour
nalist. The article is entitled. "Why
I believe In the kins of American
journalism for which the Outlook
bUUius.'' it is heavily anu ver^poejy
written, but can be understood.
This is leveled directly at the famous
American weekly journal, The Nation.
But The Nation has taken a
critical attitude towards Mr. Roose
velt. Evidently these attacks have
rankled in Mr. Roosevelt's mind, and
he ^attempts to take his revenge.
Mr. Roosevelt has no doubt made a
great president, but when he enters
the field of journalism he must b^ dealt
with upon his merits, but I would
very humbly suggest that he, could
not do better than study the old vol
umes of The Nation, where E. L. God
kin exercised his unrivaled powers of
quiet, killing sarcasm. This would
teach him economy In the use of words
and the -necessity of polishing steel
that is meant to do its work.

His principal attention is given to
protecting his chief, but he must send

common thing for a private secretary
who "makes good" to be advanced in
many ways, for young men of the cal
