Thk Big Ston* Gap Herald announced j ita auspension yesterday, and it expresaea j the hope that the public will nourish and cherish the Post "with a more hospitable I and helping hand." Tho Post indulges; the same hope. Tho difficulties of pub? lishing a good newspaper in a small com? munity are much greater than the public suppose. Fault finding is easy, but the performance is another thing; and we can fully understand the discouragement and difficulty encountered by our contempo? rary. The best corps of editors in the country could not keep up a creditable paper unless it be properly supported. Patronage is as essential as brains, and more so. The public, who are tho chief irencficiaries, should learn once for all that one can't "make a silk purse out of a sow's ear," nor issue a good paper un? less they support it.
