A Q00D NEWSPAPER. -
A newspaper is like 8, man be
gpuerally it reflects some
4man and it should be judged as
, j . mail 'should be judged; largely
" t and 'oh the whole. No man lives
a perfect life ; no editor prints a
perfect paper. If an editor is
honest he is bound to offend'some
one every day of l)is life; if he
doesn't offend some one, the editor
is nainbypamby and flamby. The
same thing is true of the average
iban. A newspaper is bound to
uiake mistakes, in getting news it
must necessarily take hear say.
' But in the long run and in tne
main day alter dav and vear after
t year a paper stands for decency,
:tr the honest thinking and clean
living, of it speaks fair for those
- who are trying to do good and coii-
- demns sneaks and cheats and low
jiersons, that is a good paper. The
