Excerpt from book:
"
1
Scribes and Pharisees
OURS is a little town in that part of the
country called the West by those who
live east of the Alleghanies, and re­
ferred to lovingly as " back East" by those who
dwell west of the Rockies. It is a country town
where, as the song goes, " ypu know everybody
and they all know you," and the country news­
paper office is the social clearing-house.
When a man has published a paper in a coun­
try community for many years, he knows his
town and its people, their strength and their
weakness, their joys and their sorrows, their
failings and their prosperity—or if he does not
know these things, he is on the road to failure,
for this knowledge must be the spirit of his
paper. The country editor and his reporters
sooner or later pass upon everything that inter­
ests their town.
In our little newspaper office we are all re­
porters, and we know many intimate things.."
