When Is Best Time

What is the best time to work?
In what hours is a man's mine} at
its best? If these questions should
be asked of the members of the
staff of a morning paper, the an
swer would be, “The best writing
is done in the night." The old
time editors, who worked until 3
a. iii., would say they could do their
best thinking around midnight. And
morning paper writers would face-!
tiously say that the reason the1
morning papers were better than
the afternoon papers is because it
requires the quiet of the dark to
stimulate to the best achievement.
On the other hand, those who make
an afternoon paper would say that
