Running ' the Newspaper
Everybody' thinks he can run better It will be for all concera
a newspaper better than!!. One crop a year is not as
the benighted eoula who have good as money coming in every
been placed by Providence in month. This is possible when
that nnenTitable positiOBf-. may
be iU becauae the editor's faultj
are flaring ones-out in the open
In black and white, or, possibly,
it Is just a queer quirk of human
., nature and the job is so easy, any
way. Running a newspaper is a
sort of a side line with' lots of
people. They offer advice in
their spare moments with the
same spirit as they play golf or
; pinochle. One weuld have "the
editor ft militant suffragist,
another demsnds that he rail
against women voting. The
prohibitionists can't see how any
decent person can be for the re
gulated saloons and accuse him
of selling out to the liquor inter
.' . eats if he takes that side, while
the "wets" say he is being 'in
timidated by the churches and
ruled by the "dry" if he is op
posed to the saloon. The Demo
crats say the paper is a "dirty
rag" if the editor is Republican
in his sympathies, and the Re
publicans atop their subscriptions
if he comes out for ft democrat.
If the editor is for anything the
sntis condemn him, and vice ver
sa. If he takes a stand, he is
trying to dictate to the commu
nity. It he doesn't take a stand,
he is a mollycoddle and a jelly
fish. He is a crank, a reformer,
a fanatic, a four-flusher, a crook,
ft disturber of the peace or just
plain idiot, accord ina as he
meets with the desires of his
" subscribers or goes against them.
And there you are. The aver
age roan never thinks 01 tne
hours of toil, down right.
sweating, toil, it takes to get out
: ft paper. He never thinks of the.
worries, the trials, the tribuia-
tions every editor roust undergo.
8ome of them are so unapprecia
.. tlve of his effortsHo boost their
town and make money for them
that they won't even contribute
tne price of a supscription. J ust
remember this. The editor,
apart from the perfectly laudable
desire to make a decent Jiving
X for himself and his family, has
only the good of the community
at heart If he disagrees with
you on any subject ' political
moral or educational, yon and
not he may be wrong.
The dance held last Monday
evening at Walkers Rink in lone
was fairly well attended.
' J. B. Sparks was down from
Heppner Monday even ins and I
attended the -dance. He stated
to a Journal reporter that while
he was ia Portland last week he
happened to be in the Film Ex
chauge when the news of the Are
at the Home theatre came in.
Une ot the boys standing- near
walked up to him and aaid, "well
old man I am sorry lor your
loss." Sparks was up m the
air for a minute and finally ssked
him to explain and he said,
"Why your theatre burned down
last night" Sparks was about
ready to drop when the boy add
sd that someone had phoned to i
certain exchange that no Alms
" were to be sent ore account of
- the firs. Upon hearing this he
calmed down for he knew that
he did not do business with that
exchange and therefore it could
not be his theatre that had burn
sd. He aaid it took him several
hours to get over the Shock sa
he had no insurance and would
have suffered quite s loss.

Everyone in the Gooseberry
District got more grain this year
than they expected While the

Only another argument In favor
of diversified farming, the soon
er tbe farmers realize this the
you have various revenue b ring
ers on your place. The wheat
crop is sood but if there are hogs
or chickens or some other crop
besides wheat there is no reason
for the dull spells which are ex
perienced every year.
