A Q.uaker Printer's Advice. Never sond an article for publication without giving the oditor thy name, for thy naino oftontimos secures publication to I worthless articles. Thou eliouldost not rap at tho door of a printing office ;- for he that answoreth tho rap sneoreth in his sleeve and losoth timo. Never do thou loaf about, nor knock down tho typos ; or the boys will hate thoo heartily and uso profane language. Never iuijuiro ol tho oditor for news ; for, behold, it is his busiuoss to givo it to thoo at tho appointod timo without asking. It is not right that thou shouldost ask him who is tho author of an article, for it is liis duty to keop such things unto himself. When thou dost ontor his office, tako hoed unto thyself that thou doot not look at what may concorn theo not ; for that is not moet in tho sight of good brooding. Prefer thine own town paper to any other ; subscribe for it immediately, and MIND THOU X'AYEST FOR IT IN ADVANCE.
