It was once the fashion to tollect all possible for entertainlng htati' meetings, conventions, etc, get th. city to give something besldes, nuid then havo a deficit to make up, wlicn ii 11 1he Wils ere in. Xow a new tuul better "fad" has struck the placo. The committee solicits subscriptions, get them paid as they subscribe, and then declares a dividend. The Renerous givers for such purposes were ölmost paralyzed last January when the eintertainment committee for the entertainment for the State Editorial 'convention 'declared a dividend of 40 per cent. and returned that much of 'onch persom's subscription. It was "thought to be one of the fi-oaks that twily editors were eubjected to, and that it would never occur again. But now comea another paralyzer. The 'entertainment committee for the G. 'A. K. cincamprnent have paid all their 1)ills and declared a diridend of 41 por Cent. It was harrtly fair for them to take the p;ilt edge off of the editors with that üttle figure 1, but they did it, and Maj. Stevens has delivored to oaeli subscriber that much of their subseriptioiis. The reason for the comtnlttee'e ability to do this is the same tis In the case [ the odibors, viz: the eittemlaiico was not as large as expected. The committee also conducttd It business in a business way, and lalthoujgh not stkiting or unnccessarily eoonomizing1, vet only such expenses were incurred as were necessai-y, and the funds were handled the same fee they would have licen in private bustnees. This method is certainly a vpvy popular one, and it. is hoped ithat 't niay never go out of faslvion.
