Today. (Friday) we have printed No. 1 volume 1 of the Wellsville Mirror, an amateur paper just started by Mr. R. C. Hill and E. D. Goodrich. In size it is small – being only three columns to the page, but the neatness of its general appearance, and the spicy reading matter which it contains, though of a limited quantity, make ample amends for all deficiencies as to size. We wish the boys success in their venture upon the precarious sea of journalism.
