If yon were running a new jiajier would yon always 'give the people lie news?'' would you let othercon~idera tiniis constrain you to refrain from giving publicity to mat ters which would give pain to innocent parlies, 11 ere are a few illustration-: A young man has been indi.-^-reet in his company, is led to drink ing and quarreling and is ar rested. A friend comes to the editor and asks him not to mention the affair in the .pa per, because it will be seen lie re by Iiis mother, a good woman, and grief cause her. Hut if kept out of the paper she probr.bly will never hear of it. What would you do if you were the editor? Would you deem it necessary to give the public, this item of news, or would you put the mother and young man first, and for get it? A man living in another community at some distance lias committed a shocking crime. Relatives come to the editor and ask that no public ity be given to it in their community, because of lie shame they think it. would en tail upon the family name. They are eminently respect able themselves and worthy of consideration in making such a request.. What would you do if editor? Would you deem it necessary to exploit this crime and tell of the rela tionship of the perpetrator to prominent people of your city Or would you consider their feelings and wishes, and cut it out? A young woman yet in her teens goes wrong in her relations with a young man with whom she is keeping company. 11 er parents learn the facts and take steps to bring about, legal reparation, by marriage. The editor is asked, for her sake and that of the young people, to ignore the matter, though aware of all the facts. What would you do if editor? Would you tell the story in the paper to shame the couple and their relatives, or would you cover it up? A man, well known in this city, gets into trouble elsewhere. The story reaches the city through con net! ng channels of newspaperdom. There are those whose connection to him is such that local publicity of his disgrace would cause shame which they are not en titled to bear, and they and their friends ask the editor not to publish the story. What would you do, if editor? Would you give the public the news, or would you have regard for those who would be uujustly shamed by giving it general publicity? These are cases which have come to the editor of the Telegram for decision within the last few months. And though the pa per prides itself upon "giving the news" it must be confess ed ibat four "good stories" HK'l'CaSCll 11-111: 1 f( l|' I lie 11 I I I W I- I I TIht' is Ii" liiiad aIid l'a-t rule Subscription #1.50 Per ear. fur a cuiisoiciiUnu-: editor who Official Paper of County and City wishes to Use his paper to Lret ||H_ I-i ..

Stonehenge- literally hanging stones —is the remains of a great prehistoric structure. It consists mainly of a cir cle of vast atones, nearly half of them now prostrate, averaging about four teen feet in height, which originally supported a number of huge horizontal stones. There is an inner circle of smaller stonesv and within tills circle several pairs of huge stone columns ar ranged elliptlcally. The exact purpose which the great structure originally served has never been definitely estab lished. It is probable that Stonehcnge will become a public property, through pur chase either by the state or by some historical society. A few* years ago there was reason to fear that the stones might be sold and taken to the United States. At that time the Brit ish Footpaths Preservation society tried to purchase the acreage which in cludes all the imiK)rtant ruins, but the owner's mice of $250.UU0 was consider ed^ excessive and nothing came of the SISSET0N DRUGGIST Our Line of Washers Why let your wife spend her time and health over the wash tub these hot days when the family wash can be done by improved ma chinery at a very small cost.
