Functions or the Hew (paper.
The newspaper is, flnt of all, a busi
ness enterprise. Publisher* make news
papers to sell, just as hatters make hats
or shoemakers make shoes. The news,
paper is merchandise made to suit the
market. Those bnj it who wish it, and
Ike buyers take their ohoioe of the
wares offered. Without this commer
cial values publication oould not be sus
tained, and it would be as unwise as
unjust not to take this fact into aooount.
Newspaper makers, like other manufac
turers, must consult popular tastes and
market demand.
But the newspaper is also a public
agent It offers to the public, for pay,
certain services, such as the advertise
ment of commodities, the announcement
of public meetings, courts, elections and
sales. On this work, as an advertising
medium and public herald, it depends
for much of its support
These are the private and personal
aspects of the newspaper, and so far as
these are concerned it is the private
property and business affair of its pub
lisher. Bnt to count the newspaper as
merely a business enterprise, and to
reckon with it only as such, would insult
the public intelligence as mucL as it
would trifle with the public interests
and rights. It asanmes public fane
tions and responsibilities which none
but a public teacher can hold. We
cannot absolve men from the duties
attached to the positions which they
voluntarily oocupy. But the press is
the professed, if not paid, advocate of
whatever set of opinions if publicly
accepts. It offers its columns as sources
of public information. It speaks in
print, and therefore with a supposed
deliberation candor and honesty such
as men use under the most solemn cir
cumstances. It is in this public char
acter that it enters into the ranks of the
world's teachers and becomes a public
educator.— Printert Circular.

It was in the city of Mexico. A cheat

secure of it be ordered it carried to
his headquarters, in an old abbey or
convent, and laid down there alone
with it to sleep, a sentinel walking the
corridor outside. He had been there
in bed only a few minntee, and was get
ting drowsy, whan be distinctly beard
something under his bed, which lifted
up as if a man was secreted there. Jack
son said he leaped out of bed and drew
bio sword, and examined the room in
rain. Nobody wee to be found. He
threw open the door of the corridor and
asked the guard if any one had entered.
"No." "Did no one peas, are you
sure? "No one." Jackson then sup
posed he had been possibly dreaming,
and resumed his bed. Just as he was
iMnHtig it was a mistake his bed lifted
again, plainly and with some force. He
started forth a second time, sword
in hand, and behold I nothing was
there. "This time," said he, "I was

called to a shouting outside in the
street, and then I found that it was an
earthquake passing under the city of
Mexico that had lifted my bed up and
given me such apprehension."

Not the least onrioua thing about the
attractive subject of practical joking is
that whenever, through the stnpidity or
brutality of a humorous ruffian, a per
son is killed or disfigured for life, the
newspapers ohronicle the ooourrenoe
under the heading, "A Warning to
Practical Jokers." If the wag had
been maimed or slain, or if the neigh
bors had flogged him or lynched him,
then there would have been some ex
cuse for the heedline. The practical
joker's doings take a wide range, and
are performed at the expense of all
classes of the oommunity. Thus in
January last Mr. W. T. Timmons, of
South Carolina, having been rejeeted by
his sensible sweetheart, undertook to
move her heart by writing a letter to
the press in another person's name, an
nouncing that his lifeless body had
been found in Adams' Run. The only
person seriously affected was his
brother, who instantly bought a coffin
at Charleston and traveled to the spot
to disoover the hoax.
At Jefferson City, Mo., a stranger put
up at the Monroe house, and sold tho
landlord a pair of new boots for 93.
The landlord's intimate and waggish
friend induced a humorous shoemaker
Mr. Joseph Flick, to go and claim the
boots as having been stolen from him,
and the hotel keeper gave them up, and
when subsequently he encountered his
guest, had him arrested and summoned
Mr. Flick as a witness. Then the joke

while the guest has an action pending
for damages for false imprisonment
The late Count Bellavitis, an eminent
mathematician of Padua, some time be
fore hi* death prepared a letter to a
friend at Rome, informing this friend
that the writer had just died. Count
Bellavitis left a space in strange
epistle for the date to be inserted, and
had instructions prepared for his execu
tors that when he died the day was to
be filled in and the letter sent to its
destination. The instructions wore
faithfully obeyed and the grim joke was
completed, and the first intimation the
Roman friend had of the death of Count
Bellavitis was the reoeipt of a letter
from him stating the fact.
A facetious young lady of Philadel
phia several years ago issued a hundred
or more invitations to dinner in the name
of one of Mr. Child's near neighbors—
skillfully arranging the list of invita
tions so as to include fifty assorted
pairs of mortal enemies—end then
kindly ordered a magnificent dinner
from a restaurant for the occasion.
A decidedly sensational practical joke
was perpetrated in Brazil on the occa
sion of the introduction of a new safety
brake, Dom Pedro, who was on the
train, being an accomplice. At one
part of the line where it passes through
a catting bounded by rocks, a gigantic
construction of lath and canvas, painted
to represent a mass of fallen rock, was
placed on the rails so that the driver
would catch sight of it just as he
rounded a curve. He did, and stopped
the train in a hurry, so that both the
joke and the trial were suoceasfnL But
suppose he bad jnttped off?
When the steamer Potosi left Ply
mouth recently for Australia a practical
joker cried out, " Man overboard!"
A life-boat was lowered, but the falls
became entangled and five men were

At Linthwaite, England, John Diakin,
a boy of sixteen, thought it would be
great fnn to soar* his mate, a lad of
fifteen, by throwing a rope around his
neek and putting the end of it round
the machine shaft. The object of the
joke was dashed to pieces.
In Sixty-fourth street, this city, in
August last, Pietro Franchi's mates
undertook to wake him from his nap by
wheeling a truck with a man on it
against him. It struck him on the
head and killed him.
At Chicago Mr. M. B. Gould, a prom
inent business man, resolved to scare
the janitor by overturning things in his
room and biding in the closet. While
he was chuckling with a companion
over the success of their stratagem, the
janitor, having vainly summoned the
alleged burglar to surrender, fired
through the door and killed him.
There died at the Indian town (N. B.)
asylum last winter Miss (Sua Bagnail,
a young lady upon whom a waggish
caller pounced one evening arrayed en

raving maniac.
In Robeson county, N. O, recently,
little James Phillips' young friends
undertook to cure him of being " eeary "
by visiting the house daring his parents'
absence, trying the doors, -to. The
fright killed him.
At Denniaon, 0., an American humor
ist gave a little girl two railroad torpe
does, telling her they were oandy peek
ages, to be opened with a hammer. She
lost both eyes in opening them.
At Bombay, in October, a schoolboy
came behind a young companion, put
his hands over his friend's eyas and bade
him "guess who it was." The boy
struggled to escape, the joker tightened
hie grasp and the victim was fairly
"gouged," the chrystelline leas being
Over in Brooklyn, E. D., the favorite
Joke is stretching a line across the
street to catch passers in the evening
under the ohin. After a girl had been
thrown down ud had suffered a fracture
of the skull the authorities took action
ud the next offender was fined 95.
James Stewart, saloon keeper in
this city, kept a galvanic battery which
the unwary were encouraged to believe
was a lifting machine. It proved a
great attraction until one cf the sub
jects sued for damages ud got 1200,
with $l5O oosts.
" I will shoot you, I believe, Ham,"
said a playful young lady of Matagorda
oonnty, Texas, to Mr. Hamilton Rug
ley, pointing a pistol at him. The ball <
struck him in tbs throat ud killed him.
(P. B.—She did not know it was loaded).
At Peru, N. J., Mr. John H. Wolfe
called on Miss Mel in da T. Jacobus, in
tending to take her out for a walk.
Whila she was preparing he playfully
pointed a gun at her ud threatened to
shoot her. It went off ud inflicted a
fatal wound. In New Jersey the care
less handling of firearms, where it re
sults in death, is u offense subjecting
the offender to trial for manslaughter.
In Virginia (Daingerfield against
Thompson), where some some sportive
youths pounded at a saloon door ud
" gave salute" with a pistol when the
proprietor opened it, shooting him in
the foot, the court gave 98,000 damages,
willful firing of a pistol in a city street,
even without malice, being unlawful.
The mulcted defendut was the person
who had urged the pistol-bearer to
"salute." In the case of Bwington
certain mad wags banked a drunken
man np with straw ud threw hot coals
on it, burning him to death. The ver
dict was manslaughter, the court
charging that if they really intended
uy serious injury, though not to kill
the deceased, it was murder, but if the
intention was only to frighten him in
sport, it was manslaughter.
At Aosta a conscript who was going on
guard was entertained by a predecessor
with a story of the wehr-wolf beast that
bad appeared to himself. Then the
jester put on a blanket and crept up to
the post, growling in ominous fashion.
The unfortunate conscript was so terri
fied that he presented his rifle ud blew
off the humorist's head.— York

ao obnoxioua to the reat of the people,

an altercation took plaoe between their

Gentiles, who drew hia revolver and
ahot Strang dead. The man bad ao
much sympathy from hia neighbor#
that he waa not arrested, ao the Mor
mona remained quiet for some time,
but finally a veaael came to an anobor
in the harbor, which the
Mormona boarded and seized, outnum
bering and overpowering the crew,
whom they bound hand and foot, and
chained up in the foreoaatle; finding
out, however, there waa liquor con
oealed in the achooner, they liberated
one of theaailora, whom they compelled
to produce a caek of the rum. after
which they drank ao much they became
atupefled, when the "tar" "tied his
shipmates loose," which soon plaoed the
Mormons in the aame ohaiua that they
bad ao lately worn. Lowering a small
boat, the now triumphant seamen pulled
to the shore, and soon returned to the
ahip with a reinforcement sufficient to
drive the Mormona from the island in
rather a hasty manner. Beaver harbor

The Editor.
The editor, children, is a member of
that race of animals called mankind.
He is invariably a kind man.
He ia perfectly harmless. You may
go into his den without fear. But be
has his peculiarities. The sight of a
poet makes him wild. He ia then very
dangerous, and is apt to do bodily
harm to all within reach. He is also
much wrought up when a man cornea
in with a little trifle be has juat dashed
There is one thing that must be said
in the editor's dispraise. His mind it
so biased by long thinking in a certain
direction, that he dislikes very much to
look upon both sides of a question.
Therefore, if you value your safety,
never approach him with manuscript
written on both sides of your paper.
The editor usually writes with a pen,
but his most cutting articles
product of his shears
And let me say right here, children,
that a good deal of 'sheer nooeense has
l>een printed about' the editor. He
usee his shear* only when composing
an entirely original article.' -
The editor would make a good public
speaker but for his propensity for
clipping words. .
The editor's hardest task is to dispose
of his time. His would be a monoto
nous life indeed, were it not for the
kindness of the few hundred people
who call upon him everyday, to enliven
bis dull life with stones of their
grievances, of their brand-new enter
prises and with antediluvian aneodotea.
When you grow up to be men and
women, children, remember this, and
spend all the time you can In the
sanctum of the editor. He loves com
pany so muob, you know, and some
times he has to sit silent and alone for
a whole half-minute. Is it not too bad 7
The business of the editor is to enter
tain itinerant lecturers, book canvassers,
exchange-fiends and other philanthro
pists. He gives his whole day to these.
He writes his editorials at night after
he has gone to bed.
The editor is never so happy as when
he is is writing complimentary notices.
For ten oents' worth of present he will
gladly give ten dollars' worth of adver
tising—all on aooount of the pleasure
it gives him to write, you know, chil
He loves also to write neat little
speechss and bright witty poems for
people without brains who wish to
speak In public. It is so easy for him
to do this, that he is sometimes quite
miserable whan an hour or two peases
without an opportunity to do some
thing of the kind.
The editor dines at all the hotels free,
he travels free, theaters open wide their
doom to him, his tailor clothes him
gratis, his butoher and grooer furnish
him with food, without money and
without price. In short, his every
want is provided for. He spends hia
prinoely salary ia building ehurohea
sad school-bouses ia foreign lands.
By all means, ohUdrea, be editors.
Of oourae it woukl be better if you
oould be hod-carriers or .dray-horses.
But as that is impossible, by all maans
be editors.— Bottom Tnnteript.

A Clown'* Rite,
Anriol, the celebrated French clown,
whose death vu recorded a short time
ago in the columns of the Parisian
press, was a man of remarkable cour
age, coolness and ready wit Daring
one of his professional toon in Rnssia
he got into a scrape, from which, how
ever, his presence of mind enabled him
to ex tries te himself triumphantly. He
had been engaged, while at St Peters
burg, to perform at a private entertain
ment given by a wealthy nobleman res
ident in the Basil Island. It wss in
the depth of winter, and the Neva was
frosen hard. Aariol dressed himself in
his clown's costams at his lodgings,
wrapped himself up in fan, hired s
■ledge, and started for his destination,
instrnctin < his driver to take the short
cat across the river. Probably tempted
by Anriol's costly pelisse,the istvostehik,
a tall, powerful fallow, polled np sudden
ly when about half-way across, jumped
down from his perch, and letting tall
the reins, turned toward his fare with
meanaoing gestures. A moment's hesi
tation would in all likelihood have cost
Aariol his life; bat he proved equal to
the emergency. Throwing ofl his fen
and revealing himself to his would-be
assailant in the motley garb of his pro
fession, he sprang oat of the sledge and
proceeded to execute some of his moot
amssing gambols on tha ice. Paralysed
with terror by ao terifflc an apparition,the
istvostehik made one ineffectual attempt
to oroas himself, staggered forward, and
with an agonised cry of "Tha fiend
himself!" fell flat and motionless on
bis feos. Without farther lorn of time
Aariol slipped on his furs, picked up
tha reins, jumped into UM sledge and
drove off, safe and sonad, to fniflll his
engagement. Next morning tha iatvost
ohlck's corpse was found stiff and
stark, lying fees downward on the fraaan
breast of the Neva.
