… George Alfred Townsend, otherwise known as “Gath,” and the author of The Entailed Hat, writes about twenty-one columns a week for the Cincinnati Enquirer, two for the Philadelphia Times, two for the Boston Globe, and two or three a week for the New York Tribune. He sends three columns daily to the Cincinnati Enquirer by telegraph, and his income from the aggregate of his newspaper work is thought not to fall below $50,000 a year. He keeps two assistants, one of whom takes down his dictation in short-hand, while the other does the writing out.
