A. Successful Journalist.

Mr Edward Lloyd, who has jnsfc died, at the age of 75, was proprietor of the London " Daily Chronicle ''and " Lloyd s Weekly News." Commencing hia publishing career at the age of 16 by the issue of a system of shorthand inrented by himself, he soon threw himself heartily into varied literary ventures, and also nto the great conflict against the taxes on knowledge. In 1842 he issued a penny illustrated paper dealing largely with notices of books, theatricals, and gossip, the design beinj? to keep the news within such limits as would not infringe the law. He afterwards started "Lloyd's News and travelled the length and breadth of England superintending the advertising, and retained unabated confidence m the paper. When turned sixty years of age, Mr Lloyd thought he would run a daily paper. He accordingly gave £30,000 for the copyright of a Clerkenwell daily local paper, noted for the great number of its small advertisements, and this was spiritedly developed by Mr Lloyd into the London "Daily Chronicle."
