The Augusta Chronicle thus sums up the ubiquitous, hard-worked news paper reporter: 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. Wc arc offering Goods — cheap in order to reduce our ^t,t not loved, the reporter is ,r courted. He comes high, but we must immense stock, * _ h^.ve him. It matters not what the You are respecttully invited entertainment may be, the rqiorter is to call early and inspect. a necessary adjunct to its success. * 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 mum. 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. A public meeting is called to act ppop some important matter. A halfdojen Council Proceedings. _ CovncilJRooms, May 20,1880. Council met in regular session, Mayor Hopkins presiding. Aider- men Wright, Whiddon, Merrill, Mitchell and Hayes present. Minutes of Inst meeting rend - nnrt confirmed. Alderman Merrill offered the fol lowing resolution, which was adopted: Resolved.

Mitch ill, Clerk pro tern, Cancer 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. Mrs. M. T. Maben, April 5U1, 1889. Woodbury, Tex. Treatise ou Blood and SkiD Diseases mailed free.
