The child ot our old age. yclept "The
Copper Country Kyening News," with
this isniH enters uj.on its fixth jeur,
whether we have adhered to tbe promises
contained in the first number which made
its appearance on the 0th of November,
1892, we leave for others to judge. At
the etart the Nkws was a live-column (
folio aad the editor then promised that
If the patronage warranted it he would
improve it and increase its Bize. The lat
ter has been done as the paper has from
time to time been increased until it is
now a fix-column quarto, considerably
more than double the original size and it
s to be hoped it has improved also.
This paper has for some time past been
harping upon the fact that Calumet, as
the metropolis of Copperdom, was fully
entitled to become the terminus of the
wid guage railroad system which for so
many years stopped a short distance
from our doors. Now as we all know
the wide guage system has, thanks to
'eneral Manager Fitch of the I)., S. S. &
V. reach ad out for this place and the
Zkw s has reasons for believing that be
fore long another of .the broad guage
iris will enter Calumet.
(u the initial number we (stated that
the pi;;r would not be run in the inter-
:t. of aiy parry or clique and that it

self had, for t'je tifn-1 nt le it, joined the
Republican ranks uad become a staunch
- supporter of MoKinley and protection.
ly the way, writiug about McKinley the
editor while 1'ite.ly attending one of the
theaters ol Chicago, heard a song, the re-
fraln of which was to the effect that Mo
Kinley was almost blinded on account of
the dense smoke Irorn the mills nnd fac
1 torica which it was promised should be
-"itarted up if McKinlev only got ekcted.
Although born and educuted in what
in England is called the professional
- class, tbe editor's sympathies have been
mostly with those who get their living
by the sweat of their brow, although he
has no Idea or desire of posing as an

be he editor or what not, must, unless be
wishes to be considered a nonentity,
stand up and fight boldly for what
he considers right even if by eo doing be
ehould give offense some, there Is one
thing quite certain, the editor has some
regard for his own feelings and such b
ing the case he would not wilfully hurt
another person's, and it at any time be
has done so, it has been inadvertently
and he hereby begs to ask their pardon.
Circumstances have thrown a shadow
over the last year or two of the editor's
life, but he trusts that it is n w reuiovi d
and that the ensuing on will not only be
a more happy one for hime( If but for his
many readers who must now nearly reach
to 10,000 a day and which number he
trusts will be "onsiderably increased dur

he for the present says, au revoir.
NEWSPAPERS AND MEN.
The lAtrer Fn Away, lint Mie rormr
fsurvlte and Continue TJidr Work.
A question that will often bo asked
Is, "What will become of The bun
now that Dana is dead?" The inquiry
U lased ou a mistaken idea. A great
newspaper is far wore than an individ
uality, no matter how eminent its ed
itor may be. It is an accretion of years
and of effort in many departments and
when it reaches the lir t rank has pass
ed far beyond the limits of a single per
Finality. Mr. Dana was an editor of
brilliant pifts, a man of rare scholar
ship, but the time, passed long ago win u
it could bo paid that ho was The Sun.
It was indeed his aim from tlio first
to make the newspaiK-r greater than
himself, for ho knew from long experi
ence that the kccccss he aimed at could
not to attained on other terms. After a
failure to adjust himself to the newspa
per field in Chicago Mr. Dana tock
chargo of The hun, a once prosperous
journal that had been mismanaged. Ho
knew New York thoroughly, called
nround him the right men and revital
ized the paper in a remarkably hort
time. Dut while ho gave it a strong
personal impress he understood that no
man was a necessity to it. The Sun will
continue to bo The Sun, and the chances
are that it will keep Btep with tho times
and brighten as tho years run by.
The great newspaper is in some de
gree the creation of the public itself,
who, appreciating its firm principle and
intelligent championship of tho right,
make it their forum. A journal of this
high order and broad influence is inter
woven with current history and has a
perpetuity liko tbe tide of human life.
When it loses a laborer of exceptional
ability, tho event is deplored, but tho
paper goes forward without missing a
One day's issue of a newspaper is the
work of many brains and hands. Like
an army, it needs a general. Liko au
army, it survives a general, and, as tho
chain of human affairs is unbroken, so
tbe continuity of a leading journal is
preserved. Mr. Dana had been gradual
ly and purposely withdrawing from
The Sun for yeiirs. He traveled much
and placed more and more responsibil
ity in other hands as be felt tho increas
ing weight of years. He had selected
and trained his staff and realized that
The Sun would survive him. He was
broad minded enough to admit that bis
successor might even improve upon his
model and apply ideas that would bo
letter than those of one nc;anng tho
conservative line of fourscore. Unques
tionably Mr. Dana felt quite assured as
to tho future of The Sun. It is not the
ordinance of nature that there shall bo
tin intern gnuin in brains and energy. A
great nev,'spaier is not for a day, but
for all time. t-L Louis (JJloLe-Dem

HUNGER AND CANNIBALISM.
Itoalro to Eat m Fellow Mam Stronger
at 8o Than on Land.
Then It oomes to pass, when tho mo
ment of koenest agony is reached, that the
starving man begins to eye his companion
with the wolf glare of a boast of prey, ills
pangs become paroxysmal. During their
(rroatest Intensity there springs up within
blm a fierce Impulse to slay his neighbor
that he may feed on hUflothnud slako his
thirst with hla blood. This terrlhlo
prompting to cannibalism, It may bo not
ed, is, however, raro, exoept In cases of
famine from shipwreck.
Although it is customary to regard it as
a common fenturo of htnrratlon and to
make thrilling statements of tho fre
quency with which even mothers will, un
der the goud of hunger, kill and eat their
children, and though startling assertions
to this effect have boon made by historians
of great sieges, yet It ought to bo said that,
as a general rule, well authenticated cases
of cannibalism among civilized people will
be found to occur only at sea. They are very
rarely found on land. And, what Is more
curious still, whenever famished, ship
wrecked men set foot on shore, no matter
how tlesolato and barren may bo their
rock of refuge, they seem as if by mngio at
onco to banish from their minds tho very
idea of anthropophagy, or man eating, and
that, too, though they might have been re
signedly contemplating it as an imperative
necessity a few hours before.
In the case of Ensigu Prentles of the
Eighty-fourth regiment and his compan
ions, who were wrecked on the barren Is
land off Capo lireton in 1780, the differ
ence between famine on shoro and on sea
is curiously exemplified, l'rentles records
that they were able to endure tho most
fearful pangs of hunger without ever so
much as a thought of resorting to canni
balism for relief, so long, however, and
only so long, as they kept on land, liut
when they took to their boats and It was
not onco merely that they experienced
this in order to eseapo from their rock-
bound prison, though, they wero not a
whit worso off for food than they wero ou
land, yet the moment they put to sea with
one accord they began to think of killing
and eating ono of their number. On tho
other hand, when they found their at
tempt to escape futilo and put back to
shore, whenever they landed tho horrlblo
idea of cannibalism seemed to vanish.
Science For All.
HER HEART AND HANDS FULL.
She 1 1 ait Chanced Her Miud About Sleep
ing Car l'orters.
A young English woman who has not
lived in this country long was recently
called west by tho serious illness of her
husband. Tho summons camo unexpect
edly,' nnd she took the first available train,
gathering together a few articles for her
self and baby. Tho child was only 2
months old, and tho mother naturally
feared that t!;o journey of -1 hours would
bo a severo trial. As she. said:
"I didn't know how baby would tako to
traveling, und tho thought of his crying
all iilf.'ht in tho sleeping car was simply
maddening. Wo started nt (3 o'clock and
for two hours baby was quiet. But then
ho became restless and soon he began to
cry. 1 tliu an l couui, nut no Kept it up.
Tho men in tho car looked at us ruefully,
as if expecting a sleepless night, and I
finally bean to cry myself. I know it was
foolish, but alarm for my husband and tho
trouble with tho baby wero too much for
"There were three women In tho car, ono
elderly and tho others young, but none of
them offered mo even a word of sympathy.
But tho negro porters wero as kind and'
good as they could bo. I didn't know
much about negroes, and from newspapers
I bad an idea that tho porters on sleeping
cars were greedy and soulless. These cer
tainly wero not. Tho ono on my car mny
havo been animated by a doslro to get a
tip, but all tho others on the train who
passed stopped to speak to mo and to nsk
if they could do anything for baby. They
got mo lumps of sugar nnd warmed the
milk and spoke so cheeringly that I felt
much relieved. Fortunately baby quieted
down In an hour or two uud slept well all
night. Now my heart Is warm for tho
negro race und especially for sleeping car
porters." Now York Tribune.
Information FuruUhed on Demand.
The demand for Information on the Chi
cago Public- library from all parts of the
world has grown with tho growth of tho
library, and from a great variety of
sources. There is, Ot course, a limit to the
amount of work which can be accomplish
ed by tho stall of workers employed by the
library board, and Chicago people must be
first served; therefore, when the demand
requires much research and somo copying,
it can only bo accomplished by voluntary
overtime work of nn employee, which
must be paid for. The charges in this
caso aro very modest. For instanco, an
editor of a paper published In Marshall
town, la., in tho lino of somo work ho was
doing had need of rather lengthy excerpts
from "Hansard's Parliamentary Debates."
He applied to Librarian Ilild, and was
told the matter could bo furnished, pro
viding ho was willing to pay for having it
copied. This he was qulto willing to do,
and one of the regular typewriters did tho
work evenings, and sent on tho bill with
the work. The editor, deeming what he
received worth moro than tho bill called
for, sent douhlo tho amount, with tho as
suranco that tho matter sent was just
what he needed. Chicago Tribune
Making; Marriace Kay.
A London weekly says some wiso things
concerning tho need of nn "ideal matri
monial agency" for tho timid man and the
woman whose manner may bo mistakenly
interpreted as repellant. According to
the brilliant originator of tho plan, such
an agency would not only servo to break
the Ice between the constitutionally timid,
but otherwise estimable, but would also
servo to widen tho clrclo of acquaintances
of thoso who planned marriages "of con
venience." "For," says tho writer, "if
there were no marriages In England ex
cept among parties of whom each was in
love with the other, thero would, we fear,
be an abnormal number of celibates
among both sexes."
