About this title


More than 600 pithy sayings from pioneer Missouri papers. Many of these quotes and quips date to the 19th century yet remain timely for today's readers. Richly illustrated and fully indexed to help you find that perfect quote.

From the Publisher:

This volume is a compilation of wise and witty sayings from pioneer Missouri newspapers, whose editors practiced the art of "paragraphing"-reporting events and thoughts with short, easy reading paragraphs. This book highlights hundreds of Missouri country newspaper editors from the past century and a half.

These quips and quotes are from many now defunct Missouri newspapers, with names as spry as their editors, such as the Sedalia Bazoo, Buffalo Reflex, Hannibal True American, Hartsburg Truth, Illmo Jumplicute, McFall Mirror, Memphis Reveille and more. Enjoy reading these excerpts from the past, and the "pictures" such readings create, from a time when editors were forceful in their opinions, not affected by today's politically correct philosophy.
