A CorreHpomlent8 Idea of a Coml Title
to an Article or Story.
The value of a striking title to an
article or story is understood by no
American periodical so well sis the
Ladies' Horns Journal, writes a New-
York correspondent. It has made its
titles famous by their uniqueness.
Its "Side-Talks With Girls." "Heart
o Heart Talks" and "Unknown
Wives of Weil-Known Men '"have been
ridiculed and paraphrased from one
end of the country to tho other, lint
it has all been grist for the Philadel
phia periodical. Just now the title of
"The Inner Experiences of a Cabinet
Member's Wife" is attracting atten
tion. "The Man Under Thirty
live" made thj reputation of Lilian
LJell in this magazine. "My Literary
Passions," under which Mr. Ilowells
wrote in the Journal, served at once
to attract attention. Yet each title
adopted by this clever magazine fits
the story and is really the best caption
for it "A Minister of tha World"
started that story on its success. "Mr.
Boecher as I Knew Him" was an ini
mitable title of Mrs. Beecher's mem
ories of her husband. T.ilk about
cleverness in titles, what magazine is
such a pastmaster in the art as is the
Ladies' Home Journal? And a news
paper man knows how difficult this
art of title-making is. But nothing is
so valuable in attracting the eve of

Walt Mason io the Lincoln Journal,
says: "J, Sterling Morton, in a very
happy address, recalled tho stern days
when there were but few editors in
Nebraska, and they wrote with t. gun
on the desk and a knife in easy reach.
Mr. Morton believes tho lot of tho
modern editor is a couch of roses.
Many a time, when he was writing
editoriuls in tho brave old days, In
dians would come to the windows and I
shoot him full of poison arrows, and
upon one occasion they scalped his fore
man just as tficy were going to press,
delaying the publication of the pa
per nearly an noar. hteiim was
out of the question in those days,
and Mr. Morton rigged up a sort .of
thiead mill and kept th;3 buffalo bull
in it for two years. This bull operated
his establishment at a very low cost.
Many of his subscribers were bud men
who were always spoiling for a fight,
and every paragraph on tho local
page was sure to make somebody mad,
and on the day after the publica
tion of each issue of his valuable
piper, Mr. Morton and his fore
man held a reception in the count
ing room, armed with shot guns and
smaller firearms, and the undertaker
used to come along at o .'57 in the even
ing, with the only dray in the town,
to haul away the corpse. Alas, such
thin irs have passed away. F.ditoriai
work is tamo enough now. The ag
grieved subscriber does not call to
have a playful exchange of bullets,
but hires a cl.eup lawyer who is seek
ing notoriety, and brings a suit for
libel. Every newspaper has its as
sortment of pending libel suits, but
where is the able editor who has his
private graveyard in the lot back of
the office? The old times were the
