I venture to state that the ".liner" is the
most read man of the day, and when be
has chanced to fall on great sensa
tion, and is successful in retaining the
monopoly, his readers are to be num
bered by millions, and are limited only
by tho united circulation of the sevoral
prints publishing his "copy." Vet the
author is doomed to blush unseen while
wasting his sweetness in some gin-shop.
'lhe "liner," then, is "the pieker-up
oi unconsidered trilles tne scavenger
of the press. As such he is attached to
no one paper, but contributes to all.
He belongs to uo stall' and acknowl
edges no superior. 11 is dudy work de
pends entirely upon his own selection,
and his anxiety at all hours is for new s.
AVhen his search is successful, he pro
ceeds to use his "blacks," a carbonized
paper, his stylus, and his wits, in order
to produce some six or eight "flimsies,"
which he afterward drops into the, re
spective "editor's" boxes of Fleet street,
in the hope that one, two, three, or even
more of the journals of the following
day will contain his item of intelli
gence. The liner is paid by the line
for what is used only, and hence his in
come is a most precarious one. Tor
chance some windfall may put a heap
of gold ia his way, at rare intervals,
but in the ordinary course his "llimsios"
are thrown into tho waste baskot as
soon as received.
Bub-editors are but human, and
badly-written, almost illegiblo, horribly
speneu, and jranticnily ungrammatical
expressions on commonplace subjects
are liable to try their putionce unduly.
"Iioil it down" is a rule which is not to
the "liner's" interest to observe. On
the other hand, ono of tho chief quali
fications of his craft is to enlurgo, ex
pand, distend, dilate the most matter-of-fact
circuniHtauces. Artful "liners"
write a small, cramped hand, and leave
no margins for corrections or space be
tween the lines.
if so fortunate as to secure some sort
of engagement by one of tho morning
or eveuiug papers, tho "liner" has a
stimulus to labor honestly, which
most of his fraternity are with
out. There is every reason
to suppose that low-class "liners"
make the major part of their incomes
out of the dout iers they receive for sup
pressing reports. 1'iovi.leJ tliore be a
i-uiiiuiuuwuu among moil, nicy cuu
safoly promise to "keep it out of the
papers," and they are sometimes bribed
to hush np what probably never w ould
have appeared at all; for it is tho
ignorant man who magnilles his per
eon al affairs that is most desirous of
paving himli money.
'f he feeling of rivalry is so strong
among "liums" that they do nut hesitate
to betray each other when it serves
their juirposn. An amusing incident is
related by Mr. .lames (J rant, formerly
rditor of The Morning Advertiser. A
"liner," who, in those days, wasallowod
access to the sub editor's room, placed
on the table a repoit of the ronmntio
elojiement of a rich beauty with a
stable-boy. Tho sub-editor w'a absent,
and before he returned another
"liner" entered the room, saw
the hoadiug of tho copy and
purloined tho news. Mum, he
set to work to rewrite the statement,
w hich was a most interesting one, and,
nuder his own name, took it back to
the office. The aecouut duly appeared.
Hoth "liners" sent in the''- bills, an.l
the dishouest one was llrst at the cash
ier's counter, aud went his way with his
ill-gotten gains. On the arrival of the
real author a scene onsuod.and the sub
editor was called upou to produce the
MSS. On his doing so the victimized
"liner" was bewildered to find that it
was Lis rival's handwriting. A collision
subsequently took place, in the sub
editor! iiresonce, between the two
ponny-a-liuers," and by and by the re
criminations reached so great a height
that the real author, determined to be
revenged on his enemy at all hazards,
broke out with great energy in these
words : "Sir, the article is mine. That

NabyV Eurnpran Letter.
It is not the greatest wonder in
F.nroTie. looked at siniolv as one of th
great freaks of nature, for everything
ureal is a ireaa, wueiucr it is a moan
tain or a man. The regulur thing is
dead level, and anything which dial
lenaes attention and holds it, is
freak. The average is the natural, any
thing bevond is abnormal.
A eauvius is by uo means as impos'
ing. considered merely as a mountain,
as scores of others, nor does it impress
the observer. Mount Jilanc, lifting its
snow-crowned summit into the skies, is
a greater and a grander object, and so
is the Jungfrau. An I so likewise are
scores of mountain peaks in tho Sierras.
esiivius is a mountain of no extra
ordinary height, clad with vines at the
base and above to its very crow.i, as
ul'Iv at sin when you are near enou
to it. There is always a column of
smoke rising from its summit, which is
beuut.ful at a distance, but in and of it
self does not either awe or inspire. As
a part of a picture the mountain is
wonderfully beautiful. It is a, proper
finish to the magnificent bay atitsbusn,
and the islands that dot the biv would
lose half their beauty but for this giant
among them that makes always a great
back-ground. 1V itself it is only to so
as a part of a magni'icont whole it is
wonderful, because it is exactly what is
necessary to the re .t. Nature always
finishes up everything.
To get up to tne crater tliore are two

it. A company built a railroad Irora

summit, straight up the side, the same
as the one to the top of Mount Wash'
ington. This road ia extended in al
most to the edge of the crater and you
go that way if you choose.
I p the mountain you climb, r or
few miles vou ride through vineyards,
olive and mulborry orchards, through
little lanes and by villages all crowded
with beggars. Then you come into

you toil painfully, until finally worn

toil, vou reach tne lower edge of the

It is as near an approach to the old
orthodox idea of a hell as can be well
imagined. It is a gulf with fire in its
interior, a fire that is never quenched,
but burns on forever and forever.

have briefly stated some objections to

results at least to any greit extent
had been known to follow volcanio
eruptions. If the matter started from
Java on the 2lith of August, its rate of
motion through the atmosphere till its
appearance in 15raz.il was 10'J miles an
hour. Or, if we assume that the ap
pearance in South America was derived
from the Alaska outburst, we have the
additional improbability that results of

We heard a prominent physician say
few days ago that he thought it was thtv
duty of the proprietor of Ammen's
Cough Syrup to give the formula to the
medical faculty, . so they could prescribe ,
and use it without violating tne rules
of the profession, for, said he, "so many.
of my patients naise it to the skies, an
cases have come under my observation
where it has been remarkably beneficial,
that I know it must indeed lie a wonderful
discovery in medical science." This medi
cine is for sale by respectable druggists
and dealers in medicine everywhere.

place it still more to the front, having
been the most successful of its very suc

than ever before. Its success is the result
of judicious and intelligent management,
combining enterprise with a rigid adher
