The Augusta Chronicle thus sums
up the ubiquitous, hard-worked news
The most interesting, most niisun
derstood, most abused, and most court
ed character in public life to-day is
the newspaper reporter.
Afany people do not discriminate be-
tweeirNhe duty of the repotter and
that of the cdiior. They think it is
the duly of the reporter to praise or
condemn, and that the report of any
public occurrence is an evidence ofthe
sentiment of the paper in reference
thereto. The province of the reporter
is simply to report what transpires.
The voice ofthe paper is heard through
its editorial columns. The reporter
usua ly tries to present things in their
best light, and writes down naught in
Your secrets are safe with the report
er. ' Though the average man doesn’t
believe it, the reporter has his share of
discretion, and while he will hear all
you have to say to him, he does not
talk a great deal himself. He is not
half so bad a tellow as some folks
would make you believe, and the av
erage town has a great many worse
citizens than its newspaper reporters.
The reporter is thoroughly good-na
tured. He never harbors malice, and
will listen good-naturedly to a little
ward politician who declares he is al
ways misrepresented in the paper, and
will smile complacently at the state
ment that a reporter couldn’t tell (he
truth’with a rest.
The fact is the reporter does not lie.
He simply allows his goodness of heart
on some occasions to hold back the
whole truth. When he reports the
Rev. Mr ——’s sermon, and passes
bv (he fact that it was a long, tiresome
and narrow minded disquisition on a
threadbare subject and omits the
statement that (lie audience were turn
ing uneasily in their seats and stealing
sly pet ps at their watches for ten min
utes btlore the speaker gave out—and
confines his report to a tew of the best
parts of the sermon, and states that
the speaker is an earnest, zealous work
er in the vineyard of the Master, that
is not mendacity, but charity.
He interviews the prisoner in hisccjl,
the prosecuting attorney at his desk,
the judge on the hench; he hears the
murderer’s story from his own lips,and
writes down the dying statement of his
victim; he details the drunken affray
in the brothel and reports the church
conference; he writes up the proceed
ings in the divorce court, and hurries
to the marriage altar to congratulate
the bride and groom; he depicts the
scene of destitution in the beggar’s hov
el! and hurries into his dress suit to
report the leading society event of the
season; he chronicles the arrival of his
friend’s first born, and writes the obit
uary of the oldest inhabitant.
“With malice towards none and
0 charity for all,” he pokes his pencil
ing Underwear, Shoes and into every public assemblage and pri-
T?,Tiniahin<r Goods. vale gathering; he is on hand at the
race course, and first in his pew to hear
j the preacher denounce the profligacy
; of the age and the sin of betting and
1 horse-racing; he i„ early at the political
: gathering, and punctual at the school
; commencement; he is on the ground
in a riot, and occupies a conspicuous
j place in the peace congress; he deals
: kindly with the "drunk and disorderly,”
I and reports fully at the temperance
! convention; he reports a prize fight,
j and hurries to the meeting of the Y.
. M. C. A.; he may be said to be “first
in war, and first in peace,” but not in
the hearts of his countrymen.

* I Because, how arc your friends to know
- ' it was “the most elegant affair of the
season,” if the reporter does not let
, them know through the columns of the
. morning paper? How are ths people
to know that the acting of Miss Smith
! as l’arihenia, in the private theatricals
at the palatial residence of her wealthy
' parents, was equal to that of Mary An
derson, and in the role of Ingomar
people respond. As a public meeting
the thing is a flat failure, but the few
assembled go ahead and pass the res
olutions. Then and there the thing
would end in a hopeless farce did not
the reporter come in with the invigo
rating pencil, and leaving out of the
report those who did not attend, refer
in enthusiastic language to those who
were there, and tell what a solid foun
dation the movement is on, what earn
estness was manifested by Mr Blank
and Mr. Brown, and tne great unani
mity with which the resolutions were
passed. He ha not misrepresented
anything He has simply omitted to
state that people who were deeply in-
terested in the movement did not even
lend their presence to the success of
the meeting, and has written instead
all the good things lie could, and has
placed the matter before the people in
such a light that they regret they were
not there, and the work of the canvas
sing committee is reduced to the mini
This is not lying, nor is it misrepre
sentation. It is simply spreading, the
energy, enthusiasm and public spirit
of a tew men over the rest of the com
munity in a way they cannot have the
opportunity to do by personal contact,
and it is putting forward the best side
instead of the worst. Many enterpris
es which else would have been still
born, have been called by the reporter
into vigorous life, and grown into great
public benefactions. Few new enter
prises or public undertakings can be
shown, to which the work of some
faithful reporter has pot largely con
tributed. And yet it is almost as
thankless as that ot the umpire, who,
if he decides right, gets no praisrf* for
doing simply what he ought to have
done, and if lie decides wrong, is uni
versally cussed out. The reporter can
do good work for a month and nobody
will ever say a word to him; Jie will
make some little man a hero for the
day, and the little fellow will take it
simply as a matter of course, and nev
er feel called on to say s “I appreciate
jour kindness;” but it the reporter ac
cidentally gets his initials wrong, or
makes some trivial mistake or unim
poriant omission, that same little fs!
low will swear that he never saw a re
porter get anything right.
Moral: Treat the reporter well.
He is at work for the common good
of all- No class of men do more for
others, and none receive less thanks,
to his tqost intimate friends, who were
wholly unaware of the latent genius
within him, unless the reporter, with
h'.; cnciianted pencil, furnishes the
! open sesame to the unpopular car.

is a form of blood poison which is not
understood by the medical profession
as to its real nature and character, but
it is evidently hereditary in its nature.
It may accidentally develop itself with
out any predisposition or evidence of
existing poison. The knife or caustic
salves have heretofore been the so-
called remedies for it, but all. honest
practitioners will tell you iha' this
irealmem fails to cure, and only has
tens fatal results. Thousands ofcas<-s
of epithelioma (skin) cancers, have
been en'irely cured by the use of
Swift's Specfic It forces ihe 'poison
out through the cancer itself, and the
pores of the skin.
My father had cancer ; my husband
also had cancer, in fact died with it.
In 1875 a lump came on my nose,
which steadily increased in size, and
alarmed me. I used various remedies
—salves and other applications, and
finally tried to burn it out, but the sore
returned worse than ever, growing
larger and more angry, until 1 deter
mined to try Swift’s Specific. I took
the medicine, and it soon made a com
plete cure. I know that S.S.S. cured
me, because l discarded all other rem
edies. This was several years ago,
and I have had no sign of the return
of the cancer.

intense study, thought, care, anxiety, etc.,
arc often of the most serious nature* Heed
such symptoms as loss of memory, universal
