the so-called "nawspaiier publicity
'J ho Mott Ml. requires all ptibllshejs
to file with the postmaster general n
sworn statement giving the names of
the responsible officers and owners
that it shall rot be necessary to glre
the names of persons awning less than
5 per cent of the total amount of the
capital stock. It does not make an ex-
ception In the case of religious and
other publications and It does not
require a statement of the indebted-
ness of the publication.
The bill also omits the requirement
of giving the average number of cop-
ies sold and leaves out the provision
requiring the marking all reading mat-
ter for which money is received or pro-
mised as "advertising" which feature
I-: believed !iy many lawyers to be un-
constitutional "1 believe" said Mr. Mott 'that I
have embodied the only good features
ot the hastily considered act which
has been so p'-opeiiy opposed by the
bet newspapers of the country. 1
believe it is risiTt that the public should
know the ownetship o.r publications and
that this provision is in line with
the tendency of legislation to fix re-
sponsibility on the right people. It
is In line for example' with provisions
of tho pure food law which command
the publication of .the names of mas-
ufacturers of food products.
"But I see no reason why the gen-
eral public should know the Indented-
ness of the manufacturer. So far as
the part of the act which requires
the marking of all matter for which
valuable consideration la received Is
concerned I think that It is not only
unconstitutional but if carried out
to the letter would be ridiculous.
"I believe the best sentiment of
the country U in favor of modifying
this law to the extent Indicated in
the 1)1111 ha-i introduced.

Oh lonesome how lonesome
Ixniks Post's Corner touight.
Sadness and darkness has gathered
Where once there (was joy and delight.
Every evening would gather
The same old clan.
For the proprietor on the corner
Was a mighty good man.
It was a good old corner
And such a congenial crowd
Where everybody Was free
To talk out loud.
I' was Post's hospitality
That made it just like home
For not one of the Clan
Was contented alone.
Mow very very pleasant
Always agreeable and kind;
And such another druggist
The corner will never find.
There can he no doubt.
It's suffered a great loss;
For further down the street
lias gone it old boss.
Sad oh how sad!
ft almost rends out hearts
To behold the fixtures
All torn In parts.
i6 1 r.E
Many pleasant evenings
But there'll be no more
For no longer is the corner
Post's Drug Store.
Just down the street
So yell yell yell
We like you Rufus
And we'll follow you to 11.
In Post's new quarters
Gathers the same old clan;
A home1 as dear.
As the promis'd land.
Such customers as these
Rufus have no fear
For business will grow better
Year by year
May you always projsper
Wherever you live.
For our hearts and our accounts
Will abide with you still.

8 A SUNNY DAY.
ti The weather forecast has a
8 way of voicing sundry things
8 sometimes suggesting clover
8 hay and bees and birds and
8 springs and then again its
tt note foretells the day of stress
8 and storm It shifts from snow
8 to dusky dells from frigid
8 winds to warm. Sometimes' It
8 sings of ram and cloud of dark
8 and dreary Bky sometimes of
8 shrieking buzzard loud of
8 storm fiends howling by or
8 languid lanea that stretch
8 away of woodlands fresh and
8 green of leaves where sheen
8 and shadow play the billowed
8 boughs between. But in my
8 heart the.re is a song for any
8 days that come; I love tl-.o
8 hours when fancies throng or
8 when the gloom chords hum;
8 I welcome dew or hail or snow
8 or wind or sighing hreeze if
tt skies be dark or if they glow.
8 they're just as sure to please.
8 No matter what the weather
8 man may in his wisdom eay
8 within my heart the morrow's
8 plan ia for a sunny day.
