WHY IS IT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW
WHAT A NEWSPAPER REALLY IS?

The Difference Between a Real Newspaper and
What Most People Think a Newspaper Is.
BY N. D. COCHRAN.
Do YOU know that nobdy watches The Day Book every day with closer
attention and keener interest than the other Chicago newspaper publishers?
Do YOU know that all over the country this little paper is being watch
ed by other publishers who wonder what it all means?

without advertising could be made to pay as a business proposition.

before our eyes.
