An anxious inquirer having written to the
Chicago Tribune to know what he should do
to become a first-class proof-reader received
the following reply :
To become a fust-class proof-reader is a
very easy task so-easy that the wonder is
that more young people don't take it up in-
stead ol clerking or copying. The first sten
is to serve an apprenticeship at printing which
cuauics me siuuem to uiscern typographical
irregularities. A general acquaintince with
history biography poetry fiction music
geography the drama etc is important
t'olitics should have earnest attention for you
must be able to identify every ihan who has
followed the business from Cain down to the
present day. No matter where his residence
or what his calibre whether he is or was the
I'remier of England or the Caliph of Bagdad
or a Bridgeport "tenier" you should have a
minute knowledge of his public and private
lile and be able to select the proper spelling
from the half-dozen ways which the author is
sure to employ. Read ponder and assimilate
Webster the Hible Shakespeare "Anthon's
Classical Dictionary" "Rogers' Thesaurus"
"Lippincott's Gazetteer" "llayden's Dic-
tionary of Dates" the cyclopedias of Apple-
ton Zell Johnson and others "Bremtsch
Neidersachsisches Worterbuch" "Brandtke's
Slowntk dokladny Jezyka Polskiego Nei-
mieckigo." and any other works of a solid na-
ture that happen to be at hand. During the
long winter evenings you might scoop in a few
languages say Greek Latin French He-
brew Russian German Chinese Bohemian
and Choctaw You will need them in the
fashion article and the Mayor's speeches.
The foregoing are a few of the acquirements
of a first-class proof-reader. The business
is learned in a short time by any young man
with a little perseverance and affords mn.
. stan t employment (12 hours seven days a
I week) at a liberal compensation ($20) with
