But they are not. Nor Is any con siderable part of the people. Nor are ill the business men or the manu facturers. That town succeeds just In proportion to the zeal with which Its leading citizens bai-k up the pa triotism of Its newspaper?. The trua newspaper devotes col umns and pages of space to boosting the city in wi*lc~h it Is published. The most Ipyal and devoted boosters of any city are found In Its newspaper offices. Th*re is a sneering class of people In overy city who, finding no good in anything, decry the newspu per? an mongers of sensailons and as destroyers of character. They demand the news, aud the newspaper that is a faithful mirror hold^up to its readers the reflection of their own doings. If the commu nity kle bad Its newspaper pages will show it. If It Is good its news ar-, tides wi|l show it. But the paper Itself ? It Is far In advance of the procession. With liere and there a yellow exception it stands for the better things, stands unceasingly for the bettermept of business conditions, constantly seeks to bring more business to the town.
