I A newspaper is so important to a community and its people that ne is established almost everywhere that a large group of peo- le live together. The American olonies were no exception. In 1690 the first American ewspaper, "Publick Occur- ences", was started in Boston, Massachusetts. The governor of the colony quickly stopped it, from being published. Benjamin! Franklin conducted one of America's earliest newspaper, the "Pennsylvania Gazette", from 1729 to 1765. At the time of the American Revolution there were 37 newspapers being published! The origin of newspaper goes back to two important needs. One is on the part of a government to keep its people informed of official news, and the other is the need of business men to know what's going on. So the first newspaper of which we have any record was a government newspaper printed in China in the 7th century. It was called "Tshing pao" (News of the Capital.) In ancient Rome too, there was a government newspaper. It was exhibited in public places for people to read and was distributed throughout the city too. It was called "Acta Diurna" (Daily Happenings). An example of a business newspaper which was one of the world's first newspaper is the one started by the Fuggers, who were international bankers in Augsberg, Germany. In the 16th century they started a news-letter service for their own information. They made a system of news gathering instead of taking the news they heard and distributing it. At the same time in Venice, people paid a fee of one "gazetta" to read a government newspaper called "Written News". From the word "gazetta", which was an Italian coin, we get our word "gazette," which today means a newspaper. Most early newspapers came out once a month or once a week. The reason for this was that com munication of news was very slow in those days, and the production of a newspaper took quite a long time. TUN TIME The Riddle Box 1.
