Preston, one of the best known editors in the State, and her husband, a decidedly clever gentleman and an accomplished newspaper man, have retired from the business, temporarily we pre sume, to begin again after a much needed rest and recuperation. We understand that they do not antici pate engaging in business in Union Uity at any future time, but there is every probability that they may become interested in the same business in some other locality. They announce that Union City will be their home for the present and the neighbors, of course, will appreciate this. The Commercial takes great pleasure in saying that our competitors have been fair and courteous, and that our deal ings with them have been more pleasant than usually fall to the lot of those occupying a similar field. The life of a newspaper man or woman is not like one con ' tinuous round of pleasure or never ending garden of roses. We pre sume that almost every other busi ness is the same way, but the remuneration which comes to a successful journalist, say nothing of the other fellow, is compara tively a very insignificant affair, and his troubles are sometimes manifold. These conditions are often at the bottom of newspaper wrangles. We do not mean by this' that Union City newspapers are a notable exception to the rule, but the idea Is to underscore the fact that they have accepted the conditions with good grace. In parting with our former com petitors we wish them Godspeed, good health and fortune. , The Obion Democrat's new edi tor is a son of the founder of that paper, the lata W. II. Griffin, Sr., who was extensively and promi nently known all over the State. His associate in business was Col. W. C. Tatom, the gifted editorial writer, now one of The American staff. The young man inherits his father's personality in many ways, and it is suggested will take to the newspaper business with a similar amount of tact and skill, lie bas a knack of making friends, and it is to be reckoned that this faculty will in a large measure off set anything he may kck in ex perience.
