With this issue of the Post, it closes tlie
37th volatue since tint name was (assumed
in 1861. I'lie origin of this paper dates
back really farther than that, as the Post is the
offspring of the Union Dmokrol, a German whig
paper founded in the forties in the town of New
Berlin. In l s; l when the paper changed to Eng
lish, the name whs changed. This will be the last
is5iic of the POST in the nineteenth century. The
first issue in the twentieth century will appear
Jan. 3, 1901 and will he the first number of Vol.
38. We wish to thank the many friends of the
Post for the substantial appreciation of an hon
est effort to give them a modern newspaper ai a
The News (?) Changed Its Markets.
If the Post accomplished no more, it at least
helped the readers of the JVetM to a change in
the market reports last week. Six months with
out a change and there is no telling how much
longer it would have continued without achangt
had not the Post given the News a pointer, if
the readers of thereto sold their butttrand egg
since July 12, at the same old rates quoted they
have lost a great deal of money. In a recent issue
of the Newt there was taken from the Post a list
of words of which the Nncs editor did not know
the meaning and he was too tired to look them up
in his dictionarv. After enumerating the list
of words, th" New concludes that the editor of
the Post is "gi eviously possessed of the devil in
his darkest hue." What kind of logic is this?
The News must think its readers are a set of ig
norant fools to aoept such incongruous deduct ions
from the premises given. It is a very easy matter
tor typographical errors to creep into a newspaper
and a the Post has enough of its own to weed
out, it must ask the pardon of its readers for such
as may occur from time to time and we will
cheerfully accord the same mercy for other un
fortunate quill pushers. Such errors are pardon
able, hut this would be np-to-date journal around
the corner has been running a heading "Ixveal
Kiplets" in large type since Oct. 2f, 18'.9. As
that contemporary has shown its willinging to
chance its markets at our suggestion, even
though they had not been changed for six morths,
ira wnnld anmrest that thev nut another " P" in
"Ripplcts," even though the other way of spil
ing has been running for 14 long months. Typo
graphical errors can le pardoned, hut the P081
can not see that this is a lypographiod error. I
the Newt wants any more jointers, the Post
will lx! fraternal enough to help its neighbor out
of the mud. Oversights can lie jwrdoned and even
iirnorance can be excused in persons who appre
ciate their unfortunate condition, hut there can
be no excuse for such glaring errors by jiersons
who set themselves upas an authority on the Eng

THE JUDGE QUESTION
YOUR MONEY BACK
The Grand Jury of Bradford county in its re
cent report recommended that the act of the last
Legislature with reference to the employment of
male prisoners in the jail be put into operation iu
that county. The act makes it lawful to require
that every male prisoner within a jail or work
house perforin eight hours of manual labor each
day of his imprisonment. This is to be doue
under the direction of a prison board composed
of the judge, sheriff and commissioners of the
Snydkr County might profit hy the road
law as some other counties are now doing.
