Mr. Swift considers it a curious anomly
that America, of all nations, should be
the producer of this peculiarly atrocious
form of "art." "We are most the humor
ous if not the wittiest people on earth,"
he exclaims in conclusion, "and yet we
maintain the colored Sunday supplements."

ATROCITIES Of THE COLORED SUPPIEMEN
Mr. Linsday Swift in the Printing Art
calls attention to a curious anomaly
when he points out that while the illustra-.
tion of books and magazines has been
steadily advancing in artistic excellence,
the illustration of the daily papers
especially as it relates to the comic ele
mentgrows constantly worse in every
particular. "And the colored Sunday
supplement," he adds, "denotes its low
water mark." What the American
public seems to ascept as comic jour
nalism is characterized by Mr. Swift as
"a shameless travesty of art and humor."
He writes:The public visits beautiful muse
urns, libraries and seem to enjoy them; it
goes to churches whore good music may
be heard; it will support a decent play
and condemn a nasty one. But it can be I
debauched and can have its dawning;
sensibilities for art or anything else that
is worth while blighted; and there is no!
debauchery or blight, outside the domain i
of obvious immorality, more deadening
to the public than this continually thrust- i
ing everything that is sorbid. vulgar, and
belittling before its uncultured but
"The leading motive of most of these
humorous illustrations is the practical
joke. a theme which in litature, as
everybody of the simplest knowledge
understands, died a natural and deserved
death at trte end of the eighteenth century.

It is simply charity on account of their
lack of knowledge that permits residents
of the Pacific coast to sympathise in the

We are becoming very much interested
in irrigation and will become mrre so each
year until this entire valley is under
water. We have the water from many
sources. A number of our leading
farmers and business men should attend

So urgent has become the demand for
laborers in the northwest that the North
ern Pacific railway has decided to make
a reduction in rates from the east to all
points in Oregon and Washington to
induce men of the working class to come
to the west.
It will be several days- yet before a
comparative estimate can be drawn be
tween the earthquake horrors of Chili
and California, but the dreadful assurance
is out that Valparaiso has suffered to a
tremendous and bitter limit, and that her
claim on the generous impulses of hum
manity are as imperative as was that of
the Pacific metropolis. She had not so
much to lese m point of possessions,
public and private, as the greater city of
the north, but her mortality is infinitely
larger, and this is the elment of ail d.sas'er
