Occasionally a new idea conies to the surface that is worth thinking about and discussing. We have heard a great deal, first and last, about the hard hearts and hard heads of magazine editors and other persons TI ho are called on to read the tons ot literary matter that are written and offered for publication. A person TV ho is panic. Then, according to Mr Eeed, if the drum- I mere had kept off the road during the cam- paign, or if they had not told the truth about the McKmley law, the republicans might have been different But the drummers went about as usual and told their customers the facts about prices, and in this way they were democratic missionaries Then again, there were the women of the country, going about shop- ping, and having the merchants and their clerks giving practical illustrations of the re- sults of the McKinley law. These women went home and told their husbands, and thus It happened that the republicans were smashed because the drummers would d Mr. Brown Hakes Announcement and Mr. Kontz Writes a Johnson Is Out, BO Are Other Council Candidates.

He says that if he could have his own way he would insist on charging an entrance fee for every so much per thousand words This, he thinks, would tend appreciably to lessen the labors of ed- itors, who get no sympathy, while a good deal is wasted on literary aspirants. This brings up the queer attitude of in which no training or previous experience is needed All that js necessary toward the production of a book or a story are pen, ink and paper In all other business and pro- fessions, some training and experience are deemed necessary to even reasonable suc- cess, but it is not so in the profession of letters.
