A PAPER WITH A 1200 YEARS' HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 11 July 1907
A PAPER WITH A 1200 YEARS' HISTORY. There are old-established papers In this country, and naturally much older In England, Ihe 'Times' dating from 1788, and some of the provincial papers from much earlier. J3ut for a really old-established paper we must go to China, as the 'Poliin Gazette' (native name 'Chins Pao') has been running for many centuries, and according to Ihe legend, has not missed an lssun. When it was actually founded no m;m knows, but It was certainly going in 718—41 A.D., as the historic records of that period refer 1c it extensively, and describe It in a way that shows It has not changed much in litprnry manner, make-up, or jneUioil of tHstvUutlor.. There are throe editions of this won derful journal— two printed and one written— Ihe price of the former belns? about a pound a year, and of the lattur say, £4 10s. a year. The printed coplua are done on thin rice paper and covered with Imperial yellow, but ths edition de luxe, Hie Shansyu, is some thins of a work of a...
