The print of book or paper is often ' regarded as the easiest place for their finding. It is one of the hardest. Imagine any incident as a pic ture. The average writer of to-day, cor-' r.upted by convention, works on- the theory that colors like those of nature are. not vivid enough for the average reader, lis may believe- in, this theory .or may ado\jt it to make a living. In, either case, in his article or book,- he tints the happening to his fancy, not raising the' tone equally throughout,- but doctoring the truth in a way thai' makes it 'fit in with a catchy contents-bill or publisher's puff. Others, later on, take his account, add further coloring .of their ' own, and still , gi^e it forth as 'truth.- .These men maybe jour nalists or may be those who compile books with no other object than to sell: , Wheli the journalist or book-writer who really ...
