It is able to boast that it has chronicled the history of the United States of America, having been born three years be fore that memorable Fourth of July which heralded the birth of what is now the greatest nation of the world. It will be a surprise to most newspaper readers to know that there is one Sunday evening news paper in the United States. It is the Westerly (R. I.) Evening Sun, the editor of which is ex- Governor Utter of Rhode Island, who is a Seventh Day Baptist and whose paper is published in a Seventh Day community. The Sun, therefore, comes out every evening except Saturday. The Omaha World-Herald is the one paper in the United States that within the space of a few years had upon its staff both a candidate for president and vice president. The former was Wil liam Jennings Bryan, and the lat ter was Thomas H. Tibbies, who ran with Tom Watson on the Pop ulist ticket in 1900. The Kansas City Star is the on ly newspaper m the world except the London Telegraph which man ufacturers its own paper. The Star has had in operation in Kan sas City since 1903 a paper mill turning out hearly fifty tons daily, Sunday and weekly issues of the Star. The pulp is brought from Canada and made into paper in Kansas City. The Star was first to sell a weekly newspaper at 25 cents a year and is one of the few newspapers that have never used a comic or color supplement. The Washington Herald, Mr. Scott Cl Bone's newspaper, advertises "no color, no comics," and has enjoy ed a phenomenal growth despite the fact that the "funny section" is supposed to be the greatest cir culation builder ever invented.
