TO REMEMBER “BILL” NYE.
August 26th WIU Mark the 25th Anni
versary of His Birth.
New York, July 21.—The twenty-fifth
of next month wll mark the 75th anni
versary of the birth of Edgar W. (Bill)
Nye, and many of those who knew the
celebrated humorist best and loved him
most are arranging for a suitable com
memoration of the occasion. It is pro
posed that meetings shall be held in
Maine, the State of his birth, in the
West, which was the scene of his early
struggles and /successes, and in the
South, where be made his home during
his last years, as well as in many other
parts of the country which gave generous
recognition of his genius.
Edgar Wilson Nye was born in Shir
ley, Maine, Aug. 25, 1850, in the same
neighborhood, curiously enough, which
produced another famous humorist, Josh
Billings. Mr. Nye's father went west
and settled in Wisconsin when “Bill”
was but two years old, and hence the
West has always claimed the humorist as
its own. Young Nye received his educa
tion at an academy at River Falls and
in other institutions. He studied law ami
was admitted to the bar when he was but
twenty-five years old. He went to Lara
mie. Wyo., and began the practice of his
profession. Clients, however, failed to
come, aud Mr. Nye decided to try jour
nalism for awhile. There was a little
paper in J-arumie called the Sentinel,
and Nye was made city editor at • the
handsome salary of sl2 a deck! In those
days at Laramie the Vuty edttofy was the
only odki* on tte piper. Nye had to
.do «>1 tEjp oditorial, rsportrirtaasauai,
gerial athU-sfremPto the advertis
Nye made up his mind to enter poli
tics. . He was elected, justice of the peace
aud retired from “journalism." He sub
sequently filled various other positions,
serving as the city postmaster, school
superintendent and member of the city
council. the point of view of the
average man, this would be considered
quite a successful career for a newcom
er, and Nye might have remained an ob
scure politician and lawyer had not a
rather illiterate humorise of Laramie, of
the name of Root, detected his genius as
a humorist. Root told -\ye that he was
meant by nature for a funny writer, not
for a politician or lawyer, and advised
him to try comic journalism.
Organizing a stock company Nye es
tablished a new paper, the Laramie Daily
Boomerang. In a short time the pa
per made Nye famous. His originality
ami felicity attracted general attention
and nearly every important newspaper in
the land copies his sketches and com
ments. The general reader was inclined
to doubt the real existence of the Boom
erang. but there was no doubt of the
fact that a new and genuine humorist had
appeared in America.
After about three years of steady and
arduous work on the Boomerang Nye's
health gave out and he went to Denver
for rest and recuperation. Then he de
cided to settle in the East and accept a
liberal offer from one of the big New
York newspapers to join its staff. This
connection increased Nye's fame and pres
tige and he soon was in receipt of a
large income from his writings and lec
tures, many of the latter beeiug given on
■tour in connection with James Whit
comb Riley, the “Hoosier Poet.” During
the latter years of his life Mr. Nye’s in
come was estimated in the neighborhood
of $40,000 a year. He had n fine home
on Staten Island and another near Ashe
ville, N. C. where he made his perma
nent residence and where his death' oc
curred in 1806.
Mr. Nye had hosts of friends through
out the country, and was admired as a
kind, wholesouled fellow by all who knew
him. He found a funny side in every
thing lie observed or experienced, and nev
er lacked material for his humorous
