detailing his previous experience
and proffering hia services such as
they were. G _
. Nothing more was heard of the’
matter until one day shortly after
the new year, Mr. Field appesred
in_Boydton ss suddenly as if drop-|
ped trom the clouds, and to/ the
students and others his umxgd!
for approach was almost as surpris- |
ing as if he had been a ' visitant
from those regions. Seeking out the
editos Mr. Field explained his plans,
and made a proposition to him to.
unv? for subscriptions, ete., which
was sccepted. Shortly afterwards
the press and type, costing $7OO, ar
rived. The press was one of the
magnificent No. 7 Golding Jobbers

‘provements which make these press
es the best of their clase in the
country. It was for hand or steam,
along with It was an excellent job
outfit and type, ete., sufficient to
publish a ¢ colummn newspaper. An
office was fitted up in the Coll
building, everything wasin’ n:gl(-
'ness for businese. It was decided
| to do job work and publish a semi
fmonthly newspaper with Mr. Field
'as_editor and publisher, the pres
‘ent editor being a combination of
|agent, local reporter and general
lutility man. N
After much brain-cudgelling and 1
a fruitless exploration of Newspaper i
Directories in a vain search after
a name not otherwise appropriated,
the title, Southern Planet was agreed
upon and April 9, 1891 fixed as the
day for the initial number of the
new publication. “Shortly before its
publication Mr. Field remarked to
the presemnt editor that the pamc
“Sontheen” savored too mueh of sec
tionalism, and that one ought to
be selected less objectionable, the
editor concurred. Mr. Field suggest
od “Express” of some kind. They
coupled Boydton on to it, but the
name did not seem enyphemious
‘enough for them. Then oneof the
hyphenated monstrosities in com
mon use these days was thought
of, but thisy was also dismissed.
Minally the editor suggested “Mid
land." This was a happy thought
and It was at once adopted »s it
was both smooth and flowing and
also, with reference to the location
of the paper, geographically appro
printe. Ho the name Txg MiDLAND
Exprrss was finally adopted.
The first number was issued’ Apri)
% 180 L It was a four eolumn paper
11’ x 16, and started out wnhg;;::
subseription of only 60 subserihe
The venture seemed to take well-
In May, Mr. Fleld, who on hisre
turn had resumed his duties ae prin
cipal of the echool, proposed to
the present editor to bhecome the
editor of Tus Exrrsse. The editor”
@einurred on the grounds of imexs
perionce and lack’ of tralning, ete.
On the other hand Mr. Field was ©
surg ‘that he would eowme outif he
‘would only try, the editor consent
od and the matter was settled. What
an wphill road lay before the editor
may be judged from the fact that
he had never written an editorial
in his life, never seen the interior
of a printing room, knew nothing .
whatever of tho business. However
he took it up, becoming editor and
Mr. Field publisher, an arrangement
wvery satisfactory to Mr. Field, as
his duties as prineipal of a large
school were too -exaeting to enable
him to devote necessary time to
the paper. . . .
~ May 1, the present editer took
charge. A trudition exists in Tux
ExprEss office that the composit
ors expressed their opinion of his |
copy, ete., in Isnguage wore forcl
ble than elegant, especially when
correcting time came. However the |
editor dig not despair. He liston

how a papershould be run; got roust
