It is not ear parpoo* to talk shop

weekly to not e* “abbreviated" edition

.Tb* dally boa a Add sad a alas ion.
sad so has tb* weekly. But these are
entirely dMTerssit and distinct.
The statement that a man does not
have time to rend a local weekly paper
1* all boeh! With aa air of disdain
for little things, thia all-important fel
low would have on* think his Ufa la
the, strenuous on* and that hi* tie** la
taken up with th* big things at life.
As a matter of fact, it ia extremely
doubtful If he to really eanabla of
thorough**** la anything. So much
for him and Us kind.
What or* wanted to aay hare Is thia:
The weekly paper la aa economic ne
eoaeitv. It baa its own particular field
and aarvaa th* interests of th* local
community to a way that iki ether
agsoey can. It ahcui'.d be. and some
times it. a constructive force to th*
community and la a modium through
which Is idealised and cxystalizcd the
hopes sad pirn* of the bod element
ef society. It it often nothing but
*he more shadow of what it might bo,
hat usually it ia a* good as a com
munity deserve*. K not, there would
be a better.
An to ita news value, the weakly Is
ia a class hy itself. It chronklet the
event* at tb* day and the week and
gives them a local color that can he
approbated only when oa* wanders
from th* familiar ecene* ef the home
town. Then it is that one can fully
appreciate tb* local paper. It por
tray* vividly those little things that
are ao precious to him who is sepa
rated from the life of the home com
munity. ,Th* dally may well aaaay to
cover th* big things, but the weekly
should be primarily concerned with tb*
thing* at home and play them up as
vividly a* possible always.
U ia laid that Marty aU tfai mil
lionaire* ia the United SUtee claim
to hare found their fortuuoa in tbttr
back yard*. Of course literally thin
ia not true. But what thane men who
have gambled with fortune nod won
mean to ear ia thin: They did not go
away from homo to find opportanltion.
They worn ilert enough to eoUo in op
