S. F, Curtis have each gotten 15 ot
'20 new ones, and neither one has
hardly miesed the time-and there
are lots of others who have done.
nearly as well. Get busy and each
one of you. make up.,your mind to
bring, or send, in two new iubscrib
era by the let of February, 1908
. Surely you have that much influence
in )our community and that much
interest in the paper.
