The Rev. Peter Kreitler thought little of it when the first magazine with a flag on it arrived in the mail all those years ago. It was, after all, one of those novelty gifts, a Yachting magazine published in the month and year of Kreitler's birth--July 1942.

Dow Jones & Co. said it will raise the newsstand price for its flagship Wall Street Journal to $1 from 75 cents beginning April 2, the first rate increase since 1990. The Journal's annual $175 subscription price, set in January 1997, will be unaffected.

Only a century or so ago, Victorian women's magazines advised readers to dedicate their lives to husband and hearth. Peterson's magazine, one of several 19th century publications devoted to the fairer sex, published a poem whose lines include: "She sits a queen upon her throne / And beautifies her quiet home--For woman lives for love alone!" A few things have changed, to put it mildly.

On the morning of Jan. 23, the residents of Johannesburg, South Africa, woke up to this headline in the newspaper the Star: "I'm No Sex Pest, Says Clinton."

That's how long it takes the Star, as well as other foreign papers not normally distributed in this country, to reach the major libraries that carry an extensive selection of offshore newspapers. But now, hundreds of foreign dailies have sites on the World Wide Web.
