It seems , when one first thinks of it ,
that there arb only a few newspaper
names in current use ; but a small inves
tigation has shown that the 608 publica
tions listed for Nebraska in last Juno
have over 150 different titles among
them. An examination of the listshows
some curious things , throwing light also
on the workings of some newspaper
men's minds. Every name had a reason
for being at one time.
The most frequeutly-ocouringuame in
Nebraska is News. There are 37 Newses.
Next come 84 Journals. These are both
excellent names. They tell the story ex
actly. The News aims to tell what has
happened , and the Journal to keep a
daily record. Both names are beyond
Next in number are Republicans , of
which Nebraska has 29. There ore also
16 Democrats , 18 Independents , one In
dependent-Democrat , and 2 Populists.
A great many of the names have a
bearing on the supposed mission of the
publication. Some have distinct refer
ence to journalism , eome have not. We
find no less than 26 Heralds , accompanied
by one Trumpet , one Bugle and two
Clarions. Quite a number assume to be
judges and leaders in their communi
ties ; there are 20 Tribunes , and one
Tribunal , 2 Pilots , 8 Monitors , one
Friend , one Plain Dealer , 2 Oriterions ,
14 Leaders , 11 Advocates , 8 Teachers
and one Practical Educator. Those who
adhere most closely to facts are the 22
Times' , 8 Records , 6 Chronicles , 17 Ga
zettes , 11 Reviews , 10 Registers , 2
Transcripts , 4 Bulletins , 2 News Records ,
8 Indexes , one Recorder and one Local.
Some profess a degree of humility be
fore their patrons ; there are 16 Couriers ,
three Messengers , four Expresses and
one Newsboy. Others go to the opposite
extreme , as the two Champions , three
Chiefs and one Chieftain. Still other
views of the sphere to be filled are in
dicated by the 11 Reporters , two News
Reporters and one Editor , 2 Graphics , 7
Advertisers , one Teller , one Painter , 2
Visitors , one Call and one Echo. A pe
culiar bent of some minds is implied by
8 Beacons , one Beacon Light , one Head
light , 3 Observers , one Watchman , 6
Sentinels , 2 Videttes , one Picket , 8 Sig
nals and one Telescope. The martial
spirit is not lacking ; we have 4 Blades ,
7 Standards , one Banner , one Veteran
and one Free Lance.
Returning to journalism , we find
eight Presses , four Free Presses , one
Nonpareil , three Telegraphs , one Tele
gram , one Dispatch , one Phonograph ,
one Quill , one Faber , two Ledgers and
one Items. There is one who is content
to be known as an Exchange merely ,
three who unblushingly proclaim them
selves Clippers and one Rustler.
We are only-beginning to get among
the curiosities. There are seven Arguses
and one Eye : 16 Suns , six Stars , three
