this. But , say the formalists and the
petty intriguers , he did not do it ac
cording to good form. The "loop" was
a bad thing , this thing and that was
not done. A paprr campaign worked
out in the office of thq Navy depart

Hence , down with Schley. "Xosv the

It takes wind to run a newspaper ; it

tion and' lialf a dozen white shirts and
a railroad pass to run a _ newspaper.

hands-round , who everneeded money
in conducting a newspaper ? Kind
words are the medium of exchange that
does the business of the editor. Kind
words and church social tickets. When
you see the editor with much mooey
watch him. He will be paying .his bills
and disgracing hs profession..Never
give money to an editor. Make him
take it out. He likes to swap. . /
Then when you die after having
stood around for several years ; and
having sneered at the editor , and his
jim ciow paper , be sure to have your
wife send in for three extra copies by
one of , jrour weeping children and
wke n she'reads' a generous and touch
ing notice about you , * forewarn Eef to
neglect to send 15 cents to thef editor.
It would overwhelm him. Money is a
corrupting thing. The editor knows it
and what he wants is your heartfelt
thanks. Then" he can thank the print
ers and they can thank their grocers.
But money Scorn the filthy thing.
Donjt let the editor know anything
about it. Keep that for sordid trades
people who charge for their w-ires.
The" Lord loves a cheerful giver. He'll
take care of the editor.Don't worry ,
about the editor. He has a charter
from the state to act as doormat for the
community. He'll get his paper out
somehow and stand up foryou when
you run for office , ' and lie about your
