A Belated Statement.
It had been our intention in
the begining of the year to call
attention to some of the changes
that have taken place ia the News
and Herald in the five years that
it has been under the present
management. The heavy press
ing duties that have been upon
the entire office force as the re
sult of moving and the unusual
amount of job work have made it
will nigh impossible to give pro
per notice of the things that
were happening without going
into any anniversary notice.
Now that two months of the year
have passed only brief mention
should ice made of these changes.
First of all the old tri-weekly
was discontinued right at the be
ginning, as it had been fuNy
demonstrated under the former
management that it was not a
success from a financial stand
point. The semi-weekly edition
was discontinued at the end of
the first year for the very same
reason. The weekly edition the
second year was only four pages
of six columns and sometimes
eight pages. Soon it became to
be regularly eight pages of six
columns. The next year it be
came a 7-column quarto. Now
it is a regular 12 page paper, not
smaller than any other county
paper in the state.
There has also been a steady
growth in the circulation in these
years, the net gain having been
over four hundred subscribers.
With this growth in circulation
there has come more than a
comparative increase in the ad
vertising, especially on the part
of the home merchants. This
growth has not been a merely
happening so. It is the result
in part of our well fixed policy
to give our home advertisers
such a service as would insure
them satisfactory results from
their advertising. The home
merchants have been given the
first place in the matter of posi
tion and they have not been
charged a rate in excess of that
charged foreign advertisers.
With the News and Herald the
homa merchants always come in
first, for we filly realize that
they are the very best business
friends of a local paper, and inci
dentally we might add of the
readers of the same. It is the
best policy for the newspaper
and its readers also to stick to
the home rcheAnts, for they are
the ones that will be fpgnd stick
ing to us when there is need for
Nor is it out of place for us to
say in this connetion that this
great increase in advertising on
the part of the home merchants
hs reflected well upon the push
of Winnsboro's merchants' both
here at home and away from
home. Not a few times have we
hagrd remarks to the effect that
tings rget he moving up at
this end of the lie es indictaaed
by the larger use of printers inK
Incidentally we would lik~e for
our merchants to ke e this point
well in mind that in adyertising
teir own wares the-y are helping
to advertise the town. So th0
more merchants who advertise
and the more largely they do ad
vertise, the better will be their
advertisen.ment of Winnsboro.
Winnsboros merchants too have
shown an appreciation of our
eforts to better serve them in the
mattr of grst class job printing
by giving us a gory l*grge per cent
of their job wok Whil we
have done well for themn in the
past, our present facilities are
very much greater and they can
now have all their needs in this
very important item supplied
here at home.
While there has been decided
growth in every department, still
graer things are being planned
and with the incigase in fcilities
that have beein mae a.s the
result of many recent in~provs:
ments, we haye erry reascon to
confidently expoc4 thse plas to
The changes in the mechanical
departm ent have not been fol
l wed by any changes in the
editorial policy of the paper.
Te politics of the News and
lerldt is the same as that penned
by gs in oar first editorial for
these coumns fve years ago:
Fairfield county i r politics.
To this fixed editorial policy we
sall try to adheru in the future,
as we fgye in the past. What
ever many be agoiews o~W n public
questions of a geneiral natstrs and
however we may go astray in or
conl usions as to these vital
issues, we shall never fail to
gie our very best efforts for
idvancing the interests of this
old county that has such a glori
ouis past ;nd that is capable of
such wonderful improvements.
ncased conidence of the peo
ple of the county in 1heir own
possiblities will not orAy arouse
them to greater things. but will
also go far to stimulate others
to coming in here. Let every
one in the county believe more
strongly in his town or community
and a better day will be sure to
come to all. Fairfield county is
the best county for the people of
Fairfield and for all others whc
want to live in the best county.
