THE HEAD OF THE GRAPHIC." |_F>Y CLrnniTR In Mr. W. L. Thomas (who is art editor of the present weekly) the Daily Graphic has a most able anu charming progenitor. Few shrewder men have founded nglish news- papers. lie has gone through the journalistic 1 mill. He was in Paris at sixteen, apprenticed tj wood-engraving, together with his brother. Both were tempted to go to New York, but were back again in a couple of years, and we find William Thomas studying art in Home at "le time that city was invested first by the Garibaldians, and then by the French. lie re- j turned to England, and, after further studying, y,. n g, launched out in business for himself as a wood engraver. In an ambitious mood he con- j ceived the idea of the Graphic. He bad not a couple of hundred pounds in the world ■ he found he would have to throw up his engraving business, with an income of I;SOO a year and be had, moreover, recently taken upon himself the dual responsibility of: marriage. However, he was blessed with numerous friends and relations who trusted him, and the first number of the Graphic was issued on his birthday, Dec. 4,1660. Now, twenty years later, and within a month exactly of another birthday, he founds the Daily Graphic, which, if it realises its ideal —in the opinion of its critics it has yet to do so-will be one of the wonders of modern journalism.
