There really Un't any competition
between the ningiizlnes and the news
papers, but the former are everlast
ingly harping upon the subject of
their "superiority" over the press.
It is a purt of the game, of course,
for mugulues ai-o inude to sell, nnd
it 1b all rlKlit for their makers to dls
nose.of them as other merchandise
is disposed of.
Hut the truth Is nothwlthstandlng
the time taken In their preparation
and their excessively hitfh price, the
mairasslnes are not superior to the
newspuper, neither In literature nor
learning, nor in the amount of wis
dom they dispense. Printing a thing
on glossy paper, Burrounded by an
attractive border, aud selling it for
1 5 centB doesn't necessarily mean
that the thing It well or wise.
To illustrate: This paragraph re
cently appeared in one of the "high
grade" woman's publications:
"Two rooms in- One One large
room is preferrable to two Binnller
ones, and a very good arrangement
for muklng two rooms Into one is
to have the wull removed between
If the youngest reporter on the
dnllv naner should have turned in
such copy as that, he would havM
been discharged on the spot, ir an
editor of a dally paper had offered
such an "opinion" In the columns of
his paper he would have been laugh
ed out of the ofllce. Yet here is a
high-browed periodical, confessing
to a superiority In the world of pub
licity, in all seriousness dishing up
such a mental menu.
Then, the mugnzlnes have a good
deal In say about circulation. Some
of thorn ljave succeeded In selling
monthly, or weekly, a considerable
numbers of onpi?s. Yet the fact re
mains that the proportion of the
people who read dally papers anil
magazines Is about 100 to 1 In favor
of the newspaper. Practically every
lodv reads a news'paper .of some
kind. If the magazines want to know
the va.ft number who read no maga
zine, let them go among the people
and not confine their Investigations
to a few streets In a city. Or, if tlmy
can understand figures, let them con
sider that not more than B, 0110. 000
people in this country ever see n mag
azine, whereas (here are (10,00,000
!n the United Stales.
We would not discount the value
of the magazine, i.or minimize Its
Importance or Us Influence. It ser
ves a purpose nnd affords some com
fort In this old world. It has a place,
nnd a large one a larger one than It
has ever filled. In fact but until It
'learns something of the province of
a newspaper, nnd ceases to print
such silly stuff ns the paragraph quot
ed, let. It not mention the word "su
periority" when making comparisons
between the magazine and the news
paper. XMAS ALMOST AT IIAN'U
