One of the most prominent features of the Weekly Spear \V:LS 4,Oh, yes" this announce ment: "John N. Bristol, editor and proprietor." I beran my newspaper career by establishing—or rather by startinr- the Spear, in the little town of Gnat Cove. Arkansaw. The town was so far from a railroad that several of its citizens who had "rid on the cayah" were looked up to as heroes of travel. When it became known that I was a "great traveler," a number of prominent men, who wore "bed tick" suspenders and wheat straw hats, call ed upon me. The spokesman, old Mat Tyler, shook hands with me and said: "They tell me that you have been round a right smart?" "Well," I replied with befitting modesty, "I have seen some little of the country.". "I reckon so. They tell me that you've rid on the railroad "Pli, yes. I was ouee conductor of a gravel train." "A whut sort of a train?" "A gravel train—a train that hauls gravel and other material for repairing the road." The old man began to weigh this piece of information, while Nick Arm strong, removing his lank leg from a corner of my writing table, incredu lously shook his head. "Ef that's tho ease," said old Mat, "you oughter know how to make a newspaper, for it peers to me like a man that ken take kere uv a railroad cayah ken take kere uv anything that happens to come along. What air you goin' to ax fur a paper, Mr. Brizeu tine?" "My name is Bristol." "Yas, that is a fact sence you men tion it. A famb'ly of Brizentines used to live down here on the north side o' tho Knob an' I sometimes git tlie'r names mixed but you ain't an swered my question. What're you goin' to ax fer your paper?" "Two dollars a vear." "Whut!" the old man exclaimed, "you ain't goin' to print it a vear, air you?" "Wall, how must we pay?" "In advaitce." "Belo' we git the papers?" "Yes." "Wall, what skyoritv air you goin' to giveP" "There is no need of security. That is the way all the newspapers do." "I didn't know. Do you reckon the paper will help the town?" "Undoubtedly it will." "Wall, I didn't know. A man was through here about a month ago an' he said that they started a newspaper in his town an1 it pretty nigh killed the place, but I recKou we'd better gin you a trial. Whut do you say, Armstrong?'' "I ain't partcular," Mr. Armstrong replied. "Don't know but it mout be a good idee to try him a lew fells." Mr. Armstrong was tho champion wrestler of the "settlement," and a "few falls" was a favorite expression with him. "I reckon you're right, Armstrong," old Mat rejoined. Then, addressing xne, he added: "You'll lind us a easy set uv folks to get along with. It has been said that we air too easy fur our own good, an: I don't knoiv but it's a fact. Wall, start the shebang runnin' jest as soon as you git ready. Don't you want to dampen vour whissul?" This was a polite invitation to take drink. I excused myself in self-de fense for the favorite beverage of Gnat Cove, made of alcohol and wa ter, was a merciless enemy to man kind. "So these are the men with whom I must deal," I mused, as 1 turn ed to my work "They may prove to be stubborn at first," but I must cducate them. I have a mission to fulfill." CHAPTER II. The businesss of Gnat Cove was not extensive. There were three general merchandise stores, one carpenter •hop and a blacksmith shop. Anyone would have said that 1 was a fool* for attempting to publish a paper in such a community, but I. of course, knew better. Gnat Cove had prospects. It was on the line of a prospective rail road, and, everyone said, would soon be the county seat. In Arkansaw the rural county seat is ever on the eve of being removed. To hear the local celebrity talk, a stranger would think that tho court-house was built on wheels. I received some little finan cial encouragement from the "mer chants" and lawyers, all of whom ad vertised In the Spear, but I soon dis covered the inevitable drawback to country journalism—local strife. There were two factions that were bitterly opposed to each other. These differ ences of opinion were not political. They were the outgrowth of a certain sort of "bullyism." Two men wanted to run the town. Old Mat Tyler was chief of one faction, and a lawyer nam ed Flip Hanks was leader of the other faction. I would be wise. I would say nothing :n favor of either party but would devote my intellectual ener gics to building up the town. One day, whenftie S]iear had been running several weeks, old Mat came into the weather-boarded shed which was called my office and, after greet ing me cordially, he said: "By the way, Brizentine—Bristol, I mean—how air you gcttin' along?" "Very well." "Glad to hear it, but it don't 'peer to me like you've got the hang uv things, yit." "How—what do vou meanP" "Wall,you don't 'peer to understand the needs uv the town." "The interest of the town is my in terest, and of course I am making it my study." "You must laru mighty slow, then?" "Why so?" "Because you ain't never said a word agin that feller Flip Hanks. Thar ain't a bigger scoundrel iu the country, an' you oughter say so." "Oh, I cannot ailbrd to do anything like that." "W'y kain't you?" "Because it would make him mad and wouldn't do me any good." "Uv course it would make him mat! an' that's 'zackly whut you've got to do of you ever make anything outeti this paper. Leimue tell you whut you do now: .Jus' come out an' say that Ilanks is a thief. Do it an' blame me ef 1 don't help vou along." "1 can't do that, Air. Tyler, but I'll tell you what I will do: I will publish any communication that you mav write." "But I'd hafter put my name to it wouldn't 1?" "Yes." "No, that wouldn't be business. Us folks here air a easy set an' somebody mout tlunk that I was prejudiced, ati' I wouldn't have 'em think thater way fur a putty, but you ken say whut you please an' folks won't pay no 'tention to you." This was a high compliment, but I could not comply with old Mat's re quest. I explained why such a course would bed sastrous, but he heard me with iinpat.ence. When I had finish ed, he said: "That's putty good talk, but it don't show no saud, an' sand is whut a man's got to have in this here settle ment an' the quicker you show it, the belter. Wall. I'll leave you to think over what I've said an''I hope that you'll soon come to your senses. Wall, good day." Old Mat had not been gone more than ten minuies when Flip Hanks en tered the office. Hanks had never fa vorably impressed me, and the fact that he had killed a newspaper man in Texas, made nie uneasy when I was so unfortunate as to be thrown into his society. "Well, how are you stirring:?" Hanks asked as he seated himself on a box. "I enn't complain, llow are you getting along?" "Oh—middling. How do you like our town?" "Very well." "Glad to hear it. We are rather an easy set of people and we like to sec every mini enjoy himself. How are you iloing with your paper? Makin' any money?" "No my patronage is rather slim." "It always will be unless )ou adopt a dillerentcourse." "I am doing my best." "Yes, it seems that you are doin^ the best you can against yourself! You have been here long enough to see how the land lavs and wliv you don't pitch into that old fool Mat Tyler and give him particular Lell is something don't understand. You've certainly got sense enough to see that he is try ing to run this town. He is as ignor ant as a pig, and, more than all, he is a thief. Oh, 1 know what I am talk ing about. Say, put this in your pa per and charge it to me." lie gave lue a piece of paper on which he had written the following: "Taking brains into consideration there is not a bigger scoundrel in this country than old Mat Tyler. Why any community that pretends to be re spectable tolerates him is a mystery to us. The Hon. Mr. Hanks, who is well known to all our citizens is the man that is building up our county and ought to be encouraged by our peo ple." "Mr. Ilanks, I can't print this." "Wliv so, sir? You don't pretend to insinuate that it is not true, do you?" He gave me a look that made me feel nervous. "No," I replied, "I do not dispute your word, but—" "But what? Spit it out." "Well. I'll give you mj' reason: I don't care to stir up a strife." "That's a fine way for a journalist to talk. You haven't got the nerve of a iish. Now I want that thing printed and it's going in your paper. I ofl'cr to pay for it and I always demand what I pay for." "Mr. Hanks, I came here with the expectation of conducting my business in a quiet way, and I don't care to be identified—" "All right Go ahead in your own quiet way, but if this thing don't couie out in the next issue of your paper you'll hear more music than you ever heard at a circus. This is all am going to say." 1 knew that he would carry out his threat, and as I did not care to hear his kind of music, 1 grew sick at heart. As 1 was meditating, trying to devise some way to escape, old*Mat, who had seen Hanks leave the oilice, entered. •'Here's suthin' that I've had rit out," said he, "an' I want it to go in your paper.1' He handed me a piece of paper aud I Yead the following: "Flip Hanks is one of the worst men unhung. He served a term in the Texas penitentiary and now he is pa rading around as one of the best men in this neighborhood. The Hon. Mat Tyler, though, is an honest, upright gentleman." "Look here, Mr. Tyler, I cannot print this." "Wall, use your own jedgment, but if it ain't printed you'll smell more powder thau you ever smelt before." When he had gone I sat down in dispair. While I was thus musing, an old friend—Billy Smith, the drummer —bounded into the office. "Why, what's the matter, old fel low?" he said, noticing my look of dejection. I related my experience. "Now what am I to do?" I asked. "Your position is not so enviable," he replied. "When does your paper come out?" "Be out to morrow." "Well, you'd better slip away to night." "But that would ruin me. I have invested my all in this office." "Yes, that's true enough, but it's better to lose your office than to be shot all to pieces." "Of course, but what will the boys say?" "They'll laugh at you, of course, but I'd rather be laughed at than to be killed." "You are making fun of me." "No, I'm not. You'd better leave to-night." "Billy, I wish you would buy me out." "Oh, you are very generous." "I don't know about that, but I'll tell you what I do know: I'm scared." "Hold on a minute," said my friend. "I've hit on a plan that will bring you out all right. Yonder they sit,'' he added, looking out. "Now I'll ishow you. 1 understand these fellows pret ty well. Go through that garden, creep up to the corner of that shed and listen to what I tell 'em, so you will know how to act." I hesitated. I didn't know what he might say, and I felt much more dis posed to travel in the opposite direc tion, but after some little persuasion, made ell'ective by tho earnestness of his manner, I followed his directions. I readied, unobserved, tho corner of the shed, aud, almost tremblingly waited to hear my l'ricud begin a con versation with the quiet set. Old Mat through a crack, sat near each other? 'ie Billy arrived, and after shaking hands with the two leaders, said: "Well, boys, you've got a terriblo fellow among you at last." "Who is he?" Hanks asked. "That editor." "You don't say so?" "You bet I do. He is the worst fol low in the country when you get him stirred up, but let liim alone and he's as meek as a lamb. In New Orleans, some time ago, he got into a row aud only killed three men —one of them liiiu I sometimes feel that I'd like to be where there is a little more noise, but I'll get used to it af ter a while." The men looked at one another and I heard a young fellow whisper: "He's got a eye like a hawk. Notliin' out an' have a light. "1 hope," said old Mat, "that you will make your futur' homo amongst us. We likes easv-goiu', quiet sorter folks." "Oh, we'll all understand one' an other after awhile. Gentlemen." I added addressing Tyler and Hanks, "I would like to see you in my oilice a few moments." Both men hesitated. I assumed a rather severe expression of counte nance and added: "Come on, gen tlemen. I have business with you and I don't want any hanging back." They followed me to the office. "Be seated." said I when we had entered. They sat down and ex changed troubled gances. I sat down, carelessly crossed my legs and said: "1 am the most peaceable man in the world, but there are times when war must be declared. You gentlemen came in here a few hours ago and made very unreasonable demands of me—in fact, threatened me. I was disposed to treat the matter ligutly, but I am, as you know, in a strange community and it is well that 1 should teach the people that 1 have come hero to conduct iuy paper as 1 see tit. I know of two dangerous men and I have decided that tho soouer they are removed, the better it will be for" this town. I don't make threats, under stand. and I impose no conditions. The thing must be done and, as I sav, the sootier the better. I am proud to say that I never took the advantage of a man so, gentlemen, please meet me, one hour from this time—" "Colonel," said old Mat, in a waver ing voice, "when 1 fust seed you I thought that you could take a joke but now see yon can't. I never meant nothin' by what I said this mornin' an' I'm sorry you tuck it in earnest. ain't got notliin' agin you —1 like your paper an' I'd tight a man that would speak bud about it. 1 hope that you will excuse iue. By the way. I want to pay my subscription now," he added as he placed two dollars on the tabie. "That, reminds me of a similar in tention," said Hanks as lie followed old Mat's example. "I like the Spear first rate and aiu free to say that it is the best paper 1 ever saw, and as far as hav ng anything against yon is con cerned, why such a thing never cross ed mv mind. 1 liked your looks at first and told some of the boys that you would do to tie to." "Gentlemen, 1 am sorry that I mis understood ou. I am a very quiet man—1' '•We air a easy goin Mat, "an' we would be more than pleased to see you drap inter our ways." "I will trv to do so, gentlemen. I am glad that vou have explained your selves, for I dislike to hurt any one. By the way, gentlemen, one" word more before you go: I propose to do all the running this town needs." They shook hands with mo and with drew. I lived in Gnat Cove during several years and then sold my paper to ad vantage. Upon the whole I enjoyed myself very much among the easy set. —0[ie P. Head, in Arkansaw Traveler. Science and the Cat.
