New Yoiik, Fob. 37. Tlio output of
tho metropolitan press on a Sunday is
ouu of tliu modern mnrvcls of literary
and mechanical Industry. Twenty yenra
ogo an elf;lit or twelve iwgo paper was
looked upon as n remarkable Htroko of
cntcrprlKo; now tho publltdiorH do not
think they aro abreast of tho times tin
less they j;Iu'you at least a half pound of
reading matter, embracing from twenty
four to forty-eight pages. Still greater
is tho wonder that tho managing editors
bo succeed in diversifying tho matter
which they hciuI out to tho public that
ono feeisdiHrtatlHilod with a single journal
and equally unhappy at his inability to
swallow tho entire mass of Interesting
literature at ono gulp. Thus every jMijier
has an individuality of its own, a physl
ogomy, w) to speak, ns distinct us that in
persons. Its pictures, themes, Mingo of
thought, method of treatment nnd gen
eral stylo all vary from thiwo presented
by the other papers, yet all lire attrac
tive to an extraordinary degiee.
Take Tho Herald, Sun, World, Times,
Press, Star and Tribune, to say nothing
of The Sunday Dispatch nnd Mercury,
and j on have as many unbound volumes
of choice matter ns a man can lend in an
entire week. Yet thero are thousands
who buy tho whole lot. Tho jioliticiniis
constitute one class of purchasers; tho
ladies are likowiso a numerous body of
customers; advertisers are eager to scan
tho "want" columns; others aro following
the "To bo continued" stories, while hun
dreds of literary people, with scissors and
pasto pot, transfer to their scrap Uioku
tho many articles they deslro to preserve.
Moro than ono person within tho writer's
acquaintance employs a secretary whose
lutles it in to cull, classify nnd Index tho
material selected for future use, and in
the library of a famous correspondent,
whose name is familiar to tho reading
world, n score of shelves nro occupied
with the scrap books that some day will
furnish him theso best thoughts of tho
best writers of our land
It Is safo to sny that within a decado
tho army of readers has increased ten
fold; editors have, therefore, been com
pelled to keep paco with the progressive
demands of their moro cultivated taste,
and thus wohavo better papers than over
before. By way of Illustration, let mo
briefly describu three of them as thoy ap
peared on a recent Sunday The World,
Sun nnd Herald nil the titles referred
to covering articles ranging from a col
umn to a pngo in length, and not includ
ing the current nows of tho day.
In The World were nearly four pages
devoted to tho return of Nelllo My from
her remari.-nblo trip around tho world in
soventy-two days. Ono of theso pages
contained an entiro pictorial game based
011 the event. It is safo to suy that al
though the expedition did not cost Tho
World proproitor more than $0,000, tho
daily sales of tho paper during her fib
senco have loen increased five times tlint
amount. Other ai tides comprised Sal
villi's fnrowell to America and autograph
letter of adieu; tho oiler of n ten thousand
dollar poljcy for tho most popular police
ofllcer in tho country, tho question to bo
decided by tho vote of Tho World's rend
era: a special letter by Castelnr, tho Bra
Spanish statesman, on allairs in Brazil;
how nu artist paints a jwrtraitj ramie,
tho now rival of cotton; the progress of
science and art; tho story of a detective;
what It costs to keep a brougham; what
is going on in society; now fads in noto
paper, with tho signatures of some
of tho fashlonnbles; Annio Loulso
Cnry in a diet kitchon; a brilliant
achlovement in stngo mnchlnery; dra
matic criticisms, with notes; how to play
baseball indoors; Tho World's funny
eido; Bill Nyo on his travels; a pago story
by Itlder Haggard; a sketch of Paul
Jones by Admiral David Porter, mid a
pngo devoted to tho entertainment of
youth. In addition to this were scores
of lesser articles, nnd editorials and ad
vertisements galore. Tho Index to tho
latter nlono occupied tho eighth of a col
umn. Altogether, tho single Issue con
sisted of thirty-two pages.
On tho Bnmo Sundny, Tho Sun con
tained twenty-four pages, with a quan
tity of reading matter that would havo
equipped nn ordinary newspaper for n
week. First came threo columns of
brilliant gossip from its foreign corro
jwndent. Then nn interviow with Dom
Pedro, tho ex-omperor of Brazil; a talk
with Kmperor William; a graphic story
of the death of Cashier Lounsbury, of
tho New York postofllce; tho death of a
lonely recluse; a part of tho eulogy of
United States Senator Daniels, of Vir
ginia, on Joflen.011 Davis; tho art of
playing billiards; a page of crisp edi
torials; tho romance of ono of Jay
Gould's surveys; stories from tho woods;
how to develop muscular strength; a fa
mous vaso; gossip about boxers; sweet
woman's chatter; Ooetho and his sweet
heart; London thontricul successes; the
science of advertising; reviews of now
books; adventuies in tho Indian terri
tory; the now war ship Maine; when tho
war ended; odd accidents, etc., etc.
Tho Herald leads with superior illus
trations and well chosen literary and
nows matter. Hero aro some of tho
moro important subjects: The Salvation
Army: glimpses of tho capital of Vera
Cruz; hcionce Laflled by sixteen letters;
an evening at tho Nineteenth Century
club: some mlvieo for small incomes; in
formation for and from tho musses; what
to eat ami how to cook; practical hints
for riding horseback; footlight facts and
fairy fancies; tho sunshine and shadow
of tho theatrical season; the world of so
ciety; does tho costume make the man or
tho man the costume; how postal cards
mndo discord; tho future of the south
west; negro colonization; a new German
nir set to music; famo and how it should
bo sought; old hells nnd haudsomo
steopies; a millionaire's Hist quarter;
yacht skippers cf celebrity; a family of
champion skaters: the living voice or tho
constitution; mission work among the
colored people; n race problem, etc.
Tho foregoing is but n sample of tho
good tilings which tho public nro enjoy

of tho young men's tipjior lips were in all

Tho young lady also coulldcd to tho re
porter tho Information that thero was grent

Tlio roisirter took up his iuforuiaiit'scollcc
tlou mid noted the Initials. Then another
mystery, which ho had in vain attempted to
solve before, was quickly made plain to him.
The young men of San Joso hnvo for tho

In addition to tho satin nnd silk banners,

In regard to tho manner of becurjug tho

upon u pair of oxidized silver tweezers which
nro used to uproot tno particular and dosirod
buona maiio. It was a delicate affair, and was
fastened to a small chain, which apparently
did service ns a fob chain. Those young Indies
who nro most zealous in their search for treas
ures from the lips of their young men ac
quaintances aro provided with similar "In
struments of torture," and handle them very
doxterously, unys tho young lady Informant,
who further continues ns follows:
"Of course, wo don't usk nil our acquaint
