He has the newspaper to sell ana space in his columns to rent. Can any one inform us why he should be ex pected to give away either one or the other? He can do so if he chooses, and does as a matter of practical fact fur nish a great deal of space rent free But it does not follow that he ought to be expected to do so. It should be re cognized as a contribution exactly as would the giving away of sugar and cofTee by the groceryman, But strange to say it is not looked upon in that light at all, yet every mau knows the existence of a newspaper depends jus as much on the rental of space and the sale of his paper, as the merchant's success depends on selling his goods instead of giving them away.
