"'he good people of the city of Chl eago have been greatly wrought tp Aoet ,Ao of late over anony mous letters moon Letters. written people of that city, and this has furnished the editor of the Chronicle an occasion for publishing for the benefit of his fellow citizens a very sensible hom ily. He says: The best way-the only proper way to treat an anony mous letter is to destroy it and for get it. This is especially true when the letter contains aspersions or tn nuendoes affecting friends, relatives or associates. It is a self-eviden, fact that the writer of an anony mous letter is a coward. There can be no argument upon that point. It. is a logical deduction that he is like wise a liar, and if he were secure in his facts he would have no occasiba to seek shelter under the cloak of anonymity. Tlo reaseeonable person will pay any heed to the slanders of a coward and a liar. Hence the anony mous letter writer should be disre garded. It may not be questioned that the assassin of character who shoots from the darkness. sometimes leaves a wound. There are few fam ilies in which there is not same epi sode or incident which, though u1 fortunate instead of dishonorable, would cause' pain and mortification if retailed to neighbors and acquaint ances. It is upon such sore spots that the writer of anonymous letters loves to press. The way to defeat his Imalice is to give no sign-deny him the gratification of seeing his would be victim' wince. Publicity, newspa ,per notoriety, the open indignat'on and mortification of injured people, are exactly what the skulking letter writer gloats over. To preserve ab solute calmness, to ignore his slan derous communications and give no. sign of having received them-in, shojt, to treat a liar aid cowaru with the 'contempt that hd has earned- these are the methods of dealing with the crawling creature who skulks in ambush and aims ,poisoned arrows at the hearts bf his fllovs. Even to send him to the pententiary is &aheasure that ma be deelned a so to his perverted vanity and cruelty. Legal proceedings are sure to afford] an opportunity for the further drag ging out to public gas* of misfor tunes and weaknesses upon which ha preys. It is better to ignore himt'aml tdgether. - - º
