A successful physician, who began life as a reporter, spoke very scornfully of the ïiewspaper man who had not eense enough to discover that the taleuts needed to earu biin a bare living in "journalism" wonld bringhim substantial rewards in any other business or profession. I suppose it must have been some such idea that was at the root of Horace Greeley's fixed objection to payiog any man a salary of more than $25 a week, it being his opinión that if an employee of a newspaper could earn More than that he ought to strike out for himself. Considering the number of aecond and third rate newspaper rneu who have made first class reputations in politics, have adorned presidential cabinets, and made their mark generalfer in the public life of the country, there does seem to be something wrong with the old hands at the bellows who ean find nothiug better to do.
