A hundred and two things happen every day that we newspaper men never see. We do our best. We have our eyes and ears always open but we are only human beings after all and neither omniscient nor omnipresent. You often wonder why this thing or that was not published and may be you will say the newspapers have their favorites. Well, we admit the newspapers do have their favorites. They are the people who are thoughtful enough to send what news they have to the newspaper office. Just an item or two from each of its subscribers would add wonderfully to its list of local and help you to know what your neighbors are doing as well as others. If you know of any births, marriages or suicides, drop the editor a postal while the news is warm and thereby add your name to the list of favorites and w feel sure you will receive your just reward. - Ex.

Miss Barnes, the Y. W. C A. secretary for Michigan and Ohio was given a reception at the Y. W. C. A. rooms - which was one of the pleasantest affairs ever held there. The pleasant rooms were crowded, the company being about equally divided between the girls of the association and the ladies who are sustaining members or committee workers. Quite a company from the Ypsilanti association were among them, Miss Mays, their new general secretary. After a social hour the ladies listened to short talks by the leaders, and dainty refreshments then appeared. To the delight of the girls it was learned that the silver cake basket, spoons and knives sent over by Mrs. R. A. Beal, were not loans, but gifts. Now the girls at the noon lunch will not need to borrow from their neighbors when they need a knife. Miss Barnes will speak at the Presbyterian church on Sunday evening. Miss Stewart the head of the Michigan associations, will have charge of the Sunday meeting, at 3:30. Miss Rose French and Master Harrison Van Valkenburg will furnish the music for this meeting. All are welcome.

They simply print the news they can find. A reporter should not be expected to know the names of your uncles, aunts and cousins, even if he should see them get off the train. He will be pleased to have you tell him about it.
