NEWSPAPER SIGNATURES IN FRANCE. The signatures make a notable difference between French newspapers and ours, not in form merely, but also in substance (says the North British Review.) It is obvious that the proper name at the end of an ar- ticle has some influence on its style. A man who signs what he says to the public, will naturally be more prudent.and courteous than one who speaks unknown from behind the broadsheet. Compare, as is right our neighhour's best with our own best. In the one there is a tone of high breeding which the other scarcely condescends to use. Anything sharply said, even to the verge of coarseness, seems to us well said, if we be but convinced that it is well deserved. Justice in substance, as we reckon it, atones for many sins of form. The French journalist signing his name, writes as he would speak within hearing of his adversary be- fore a select assemblage of well-bred critics his polite- ness in the use of his weapon serving at times to sharpen its sting. The English journalist shrouded behind his editorial "we" uses no polite circumlocution. He speaks the strong, fearless, authoritative language of a public functionary fulfilling a public duty. This is the language we understand and like, and therefore it is spoken. It is best spoken anonymously.
