Newspaper Sketches—Boston Herald.


The brief sketches of prominent newspapers which are herewith presented will be found not the least interesting feature of the Newspaper Directory. In their variety of detail and general description we gain much knowledge of the internal workings of the newspaper, and the general reader learns that, as in most other business enterprises, journalism flourishes best where and when its interests are duly cared for. It will not be difficult to understand, by careful reading, that newspapers started in a hurry are not usually among the things of this world which enjoy the gift of long life. It is, perhaps, one of the most prominent points developed in these sketches that the publishers of the papers alluded to in them have succeeded in establishing large and influential journals by energy, perseverance, sagacity, and careful judgment.



The new building of the Boston Herald is an establishment well worthy of the local attention it has received, and it is more widely notable for the more general.reason that it marks very strongly the growth of the newspaper business, and the facilities that enterprising newspaper publication has called into its service. Newspaper premises before now have been heaped up at vast expense, as like adjuncts have been sought to help forward various corporate and private undertakings, buildings for the future, not needed now, but set up to invite a future, oftentimes, in these days, not realized, or set further off by unproductive outlay. It is, therefore, the notable initial fact, that the Boston Herald built to its own demand, and instantly filled its magnificent premises with its own uses, leaving far less space than is usual in such cases to general rental purposes. The location is in the very business heart of the city, the building fronting on Washington street (at No. 255), between School and Court streets, and running back 179 feet, with a wing extending from the northerly side 45 feet to Williams court (between Washington street and Court square), where there are entrances to the editors' and reporters' departments, to the mailing and delivery rooms, and to the press-room.

The structure covers an area of 6,200 square feet; its height is 100 feet from sidewalk to roof, and the basement is 13 feet below the street level. The front is composed of Concord granite, with columns, panels, and window-caps of polished red granite from the Bay of Fundy, elaborately chiseled and ornamented. The business office, on the lower floor of the Washington street front, is 27 feet in width, and 68 feet long. The counters, dado, and floor, are of rare marbles, some ten different varieties being combined in tasteful designs; the wood finish and desks are of solid mahogany, and the gas-fixtures, railings, gates, etc., of highly-polished brass. The private office of the business head of the firm is divided from the main room by a screen of carvod mahogany and stained glass. The walls and ceiling are tinted in oil, with gilded and decorated cornices. The upper portion of the front building is reached by a separate door on Washington street, by which access is had to a marble-floored, walled, and ceiled vestibule, from which one may ascend, by a marble, staircase, or by a commodious elevator, to the floors above.

The lower floor of the rear building is devoted to the delivery of papers, the entrance
