FROM OLE OLESON
The following communication was
received by us a few days ago, and as
the writer (who, we are confident, Is
of the fair sex) presumes to dictate to
us what shall or shall not appear in
these columns we give It space this
week: . . ' '
"Mr. Editor In a town oft' . named
in your "Wheatfield", called for him
of long-eared fame, lives a man who is
named "Yon Yonson" and sayl what a
"He tells of this one and that one
of "Svedes" and "Svede Canyon
mans" till our eyes refuse to do duty
and we fancy the bang of tin pans.
For the're coming as surely as Satan,
then rotten eggs next will attest how
tired we are of that nonsense. Oh say
"Yon"! Do give us a rest."
A short time ago we read In one of
our exchanges that the worst knocker
newspapers have are those who are
not subscribers of the paper, but bor
row if from their neighbors in order to
get the news. We fail to find the
name of Ole Oleson on our list and
presume that Ole Is one of this class.
There Is a name carried at the mast
head of this sheet, and that party
alone dictates what shall or shall not
appear In these columns. We do not
allow any other person, party or sect
to dictate to us what to publish. The
Wheatfield Is a business enterprise
and we solicit and need the support
and good will of all, yet we not expect
to please everyone all the time, as
what is of Interest to , some may seem
senseless or of no interest to otheri.
We do not claim that there is much
real merit In the "Yon Yonson" let
ters, yet there . are those who enjoy
reading them and have asked why
they have not appeared the last few
issues. As for the implied threat, we
are not exceedingly brave, but we do
not fear the rotten eggs," and would j Graham last
prefer having a few of them cast at us
rather than be a toady, swaying this
way or that as we should be dictated
to by such parties as the author of the
above letter.. Our stand may loose us
one or two subscribers, but the paper
will not stop as we have enough sub
scribers and patronage among "the
broad-minded, liberal class of people
to assure Lexington of a newspaper,
that always has and always will work
for the best Interests of Lexington and
her people at large.
