An exchange contains the following
wholesale arraignment of public i
tastes In Journalism: i
1 "The average man Is an idiot
' therefore the newspaper must he j
' idiotic. The people would '
rather read evil than virtue. They !
prefer sensation nnd depravity. They
I prefer unclean to the clean. They
j would resent serious discussion."
If this is the standard of the masses
' If this Is the mission of the news-
paper, the quicker press censorship
j comes, the better.
But do the people accept this as
the true portrayal of their moral
tastes. Do they wish to let this Idea
of depraved Journalism gain credence
among the children of the Innd.
If so, give vicious principles the
rein. If not, bar them from the light
of publicity. The slow poison will
taint the blood of soclnl nnd moral
health, If It Is allowed to spread.

Today another tnlle-stone Is plant

borders of the county were surveyed

on on the map, no greater movement
than the reclamation of the waste

so beautiful, so full of possibilities,
that its splendor Is dazzling. Around
the altar of this industrial fraternity
