Inside Views of the Editorial Pru
We sometimes think that an editor

world th: t come to him to be endorsed;
so much vanity that desirGS to be fur
ther inflated; so much rascality that
seeks to be fhieldcd, or shifted upon
some other man's shoulder; so much
petty meanness that tries to pass cur
rent for generosity; and so much
wickedness and malignity that simulatt
virtue and true nobility of character
continually passing in review before
him, that it were scarcely a wonder if
he should in time grow cynical aud
misanthropic. As an antidote to thi?
, tem, ho sh,mM be a n
practical common sonf. He shonW
possess something of the judicial fual
ity, being able to weigh testimi'iiv
fully, sifting the false, and trivial from
the true and pertinent, giving each its
just value and finally rendering judg
ment with fairness and impartiality,
lie should be able at a glance to dis
tinguish between the petty spite and
malignity which seeks to employ tho
editorial lah to scourge the innocent,
.xm that solicitude for the public wel
fare which prompts a man to expose
crime because it is crime, and not from
sinister or selfish motives. To be and
do all of this he must have some nerve,
for ho will make enemies The vicious
will hate and annoy him, the shoddy
aristocrats will snub him, and the dead
beats and empirics will curse him con
tinually. But these classes are in the
minority in almost every community.
They represent but little of the wealth,
intelligence or manhood of a neighbor
hood. Gaining their displeasure, he is
morally certain to preserve his self-respect,
and to secure the respect and es
teem of all whose friendship ami ap-j
proval are worth having. It may be
argued that there are but few editors
who have attained this ideal, but it is,
nevertheless, true that the nearer they
approximate to it the more independ
ent, dignified and honorable the pro
fession of journalism will become, and
the more potent will be its influence for
