Frequently there is news of a dam-
alni,' nature iwsslbly true that is
offered for publication, and unfortun
ately there occasionally happens to bo
an editor who allows himself to help
alonir tho gossip In his destruction of
society and good feeling. But the
newspaper has a bettor mission to ful
fill; it should bring cheer to every liro
side, and aid to create prosperity, co
operation and good will among tho
people of tho community and not be
merely a purveyor of scandal.

Newspaper men a great many times
aro blamed for a lot of things they can
not help, such ns using partiality in
mentioning visitors, giving news about
some folks and leaving out others.
They simply print tho news they can
find. An editor should not bo expected
to know tho names of your uncles,
aunts and cousins, even If he should
see them get olT tho train. Tell him
alout It. It's news that makes a news
paper, and every man, woman and
child in tho neighborhood could be as
sociate editors if they would.
