OUR PLATFORM.
This paper aims to bring
the best reading to every fire
side. Reading is a great thing,
but it makes a big difference
what you read.
Tiik Citikn brings, first of
all, the news not every tale
of crime or horror, but the im
portant news the news from
Washington and the State
capital, from our soldiers in
far off islands, from our neigh
bors everywhere. For the
young folks we have a story
and a Bible lesson ;for house
wives, a few new ideas each
week which should lighten
their labors; for the farmer
some valuable hints which
will help. him to make more
from his land and cattle.
We propose to get the best
ideas that can be found on all
such practical and important
matters and pass them around
among our readers. The re
sources of Berea College are
not for its students alone. The
editor of this paper am at any
time step into the largest Col
lege library in the State, and
he has engaged several of tin;
most distinguished instructors
in the College to take charge
of special departments in the
Caper. Those who are visited
y Tiik Citizen will know
what is going on in the world.
Every week it will tell them
something worth knowing.
TiieCitizen is pledged to no
party. It is every man s Inend.
It stands for the things which
benefit all temperance,
thrift, kindness, enterprise,
and education. And wc ask
all who believe in these things
to subscribe for The Citizen.
The aubscrintion list of The Re-
jwrter has lieen purchased by The
Citizen and we hope that the atu-1
dents will feel oven a livelier interest '
In the new paper thnn they ever had
for the old. It has at least two point I
of superiority. His a weekly and it I
runs every week in the yoar. Tub
Citizen never takes a vacatiou and it
will serve as u weekly news letter
when the students an away from
Berea.
