The more a newspaper man exerts
his ability to please a whimpering
public: the more cood he does for the
town the more he is criticised.
Speaking of this a writer said: "The
man who can run a newspaper without
being criticised, censured, and threat
ened has never been found. He is a
barred ideality, beautiful to think
about, bat incapable of taking on
mortality and associating with vulgar
humanity. It is as impossible for a
newspaper man to plese everybody
as it is for everybody to please him,
and the sooner he makes up his mind
to this stubborn fact, the better for
everybody concerned. If he work
hard for public good, he receives pri
vate censure, if he c-jmpliments mer
it, he is censured by jealous demerit:
if he approves morality, he is cursed
by immorality; if he tries to be fair,
he is censured by the unfair: if he
makes a mistake, few are found to
overloek it, or apologize for him
No matter how good his motive may
be. how innocent his purpose or how
studied his writings, he is picked to
pieces, misrepresented, aaaligaed, rid
iculed, sometimes licked aad seldom
ever defended. Be works from twelve

j gjbie, we repeat, for a newspaper man
j to please everybody. As well attempt
