Rural Journalism is Exciting.
A newspaper man who recently
went up the state to take charge of a
rural sheet and give his tired brain a
rest has come back to town and is
hustling for his old job. " The coun
try is all right," he declares, "but
there is too much happsning, and I
came back to town to find a more
restful atmosphere. There were two
papers in town, and I had to watch
the other one. Both published Fri
day, and we could not afford to let the
other fellows beat us on news. The
firsr issue looked all right, but the old
man kicked because we were scooped
on the death of a cow on a farm three
miles out of town, and would not be
consoled when I showed him that the
opposition missed a story we had on
an accident in the railroad yard. The
next week it was the same way; we
did not announce that the baker had
lost ten loves of bread from his delivery
cart, and there was a howl that rather
sickened me of the country.
"The third week settled the job. We
were all ready to start the press when
the old man rushed in, greatly excited,
and announced that he had a beat.
We lifted off one form and waited
while the old chap wrote out his story,
and this is what I had to kill one of
my pet small editorials for: 'We notice
that George W. Haskins is making
preparations to improve the appear
ance of his cozy honae on Protection
street. We noticed Mr. Haskins in
close conversation with Mr. Smith,
