TO OUR SC ?SC II I HERS.
Tho Courier has about two hun- |
dred subscriptions Catt will expire
during Ibis month and .January of
lilL'H. Many complain lo us about
taking their names from our mailing
list nt expiration of subscription, and
not a few loll us that they are glad j
we have adopted this policy. PractI- |
cally all renew their subscriptions
shortly after expiration, but we are |
frequently asked to supply tho copies
missed by tho expiration. This wo
cannot always do.
The best way for subscribers to do
is to keep track of tho expiration date
of their papers. This Is easily done,
for the dato of expiration is printed
weekly opposite the name of each
subscriber. Wo leave all names on
list two weeks after expiration-no
longer. Wo will appreciate it if all
our subscribers will take tho troublo
to look at Hin label this week. If
your subscription Is about, up. we
will appreciate renewal before expi
Then, too, always give your post
?nico address. Thia enables us to
chango ih<> date on label promptly.
This is especially important' in re
questing change pf nddross. Not a
few simply write us and say "Pienso
chongo my papor to" and give Ike
name of Iho new postollico. lt may
bo thal we know just where the pa
por baa hoon going, lu which caso
\s'o make Ibo chango at .once. If WO
do liol Know tho old ddtlress, the re
