A PERSONAL APPEAL.
I have been connected with The
Herald and News as editor for more
than seventeen years. When it
was bought from Mr. A. C. Jones
on March 7, 1887, by Aull & Hou
seal, the subscription list was about
six hundred. It ran up v 1 ,200
and when it was changed to twice a
week the list began to increase until
now it takes more than i86o papers
to fill our mailing list. We have
tried to keep it in the van of pro
gress, and we have labored, hard
for the advancement of the best in
terests of this county and town.
Those things that we conceived for
ttie best interests ol the whole peo
ple-for their material and moral
uplifting-we have advocated re
gardless of the consequences to our
selves. Many times we have led
the agitation for public utilities
which at the beginning had few ad
vocates, but by persistence we have
accomplished results. For the past
four years on account of absence
from the business little or no effort
has been made to collect what is
due us. I ani compelled to raise
$1500 by the first of Dec. I find
that ioo subscribers owe the paper
from one year up to several, the
average being about $5.oo. It is a
small matter to each one of you,
but you can readily see what it
means to me. A great many have
responded to the statements which
we sent out, but a great many more
You have been kind to us iin
many respects, and this appeal is
made to you for the purpose of get
ting the money and putting the
paper in position to serve you better
in the future than it has in the past.
I do not want you to send th
money thi: --eek, but on the 16tli
of this month which is next Mon.
day, I hope that every subscribei
who is in arrears %Vill make it v
part of his duty on that day to sendI
us at least $1 50 and as munch mnore
as you can if you owe it. This re.
quest is made in real earnest, and ]
trust that there is not one sun
scriber who will fail to comply, i
he be in arrears. Will you respond
There are those who live beyonc
the borders of the county to whon
the paper has gone regularly foi
many years as a welcome messag(
from t' eir old home reminding
them of the scenes of other days.
Many of these have not paid us foi
several years. This appeal is mnean
for you as well as for others. Surely
there is no one so poor that he can
not pay one year's subscription
If he is, and will v'rite us, we wil
charge up what he owes to profli
and loss and send him a receipt
But we know there is none such
We are not in the habit of con.
stantly seniding statements nor oi
publishinig reminders, but at thh
time we need the money and have
nio way of getting it except fron
those who owe us amid for whom we
have worked. Remember the day
and remember that we are very
much in earnest in this appeal tc
you. Von know whether you owec
us or not, and if there is any mis
take in your credit we will gladly
correct it. Anmy (late after the 16th

should be glad to have it all come.
