WALTON'S HAND WRITING LIKE MUSIC. Every once in a while sombody in Stanford receives a letter from Col. V. P. Walton, former editor of the Interior Journal, and now associate editor of the Lexington Herald. The recipients of such missives usually bring them to us to. read, for we "set" his copy for many a year both by hand and on a linotype, and often we were the only man in the office who could read it. Which re minds us of a story he told on himself in the Herald the other day. A tramp printer hit Lexington and they put him on a machine to set some ot Mr. Wal ton's editorials. The printer looked at ' it a while, turned It up-side down and studied it then went to the foreman and said: "If I had a cornet I might play this stuff, but I'm d -d if I can set it. " At that we think Col. Walton's chiro graphy is more legible than that of Editor Desha Breckinridge of the Her ald or of Enoch Grehan another leading Lexington newspaper man, and we have "set" them all In days gone by.
