CASH IN ADVANCE.
In March, 1887, I became a part
wner of The Herald and News and
ave been connected with the paper
tinuously since that time. I was
ith the paper a couple of years prior
>that time when under other own
ship. I have, therefore, been the
itor for nearly twenty-five years.
uring that time my duties have al
>been to keep the books and sub
I have always had great faith and
ple and their purpoSe to pay their
debts. For that reason I have never
believed I could conduct a strictly
cash in advance subscription.
For the past few months I have
been giving a closer study to the sit
nation than ever before.
When the postoffice department is
ued its order that a subscription to
a semi-weekly more than nine months
in arrears could not be accepted at
the second-class rate we endeavored
to comply with the order and had to
cutt off about 650 names. We first
sent each subscriber at least two let
ters calling attention to the enine be
sides mention of it was made in the
paper. This fall we have sent an
other letter ~to these persons but we
have received no response.
These 650 owed us over .$5,000.
Mlany of them not only did not pay
AV!!at they owed but went directly and
subscribed f) o--r cLemporary and
paid for it. We have no objection to
that but we mention it as a reason
for the shaking of our faith in the
honesty of the people. It certainly
was a striking evidence of ingratitude.
We still have a good many sub
scribers who are in arrears. State
ments have been sent or will be sent
in a few days to all of these.
During the 25 years of our connec
tion with this newspaper we have
lost in unpaid subscriptions at least
$20,000. We have no one to blame
but ourself and the people would
have thought more of us if we had,
made them pay it. We are not com
plaining but we propose to stop this
leak or go out of the business.
After the first day of February The
fferald and News will be run strictly
on the cash in advance plan. A post
card will be mailed you giving you
thirty days; notice so that you may
have time to send in your renewal
and to remind you if you should over

the credits. If you will call our at

send statements and to pay postage.
We will keep no books except our
receipt stubs'and a cash book and the
We shall haite to part with any sub
scribers hbut we cannot longer be an
noyed with trying to collect these lit
tle amounts and then not get them.
The post office rule does not permit
us to carry a delinquent longer than
nine months and we had just as well
put it on the cash basis.
We find that for a eleven months
of this year only about 1000 have
paid anything at all. Just about one
half of the present list. We can not
pay our debts and keep up this rate of
collection of what is due us. And we
do not want to offer compromise if
we can help it.
Remember you have two months
to put yourself financial. If you can't
pay all of your back dues give us your
note and pay the advane subscrip
The rule we adopt will be followed
strictly. No doubt some of those who
have .been indulged will show their
appreciation by getting mad and tak
ing the other paper as some have done.
We will not raise any objection for

ing that you will no longer get a pa
per without paying for it.
Those who pay no heed to what they
owe us will have their accounts turn
ed over to a collection agency. 0
We have worked hard to serve the a
people of this community and we de- ~
serve what we have earned. 0
The Herald and News will continue
to be an up-to-date paper and we
hope all of our subscribers will ap
preeiate the situation that it costs
money to buy paper and pay printers
and it is much easier for each one to
pay us than it is for us to be continm
illy hunting up these little amounts.
If any man's subscription is in ar- I
rears and he has a claim against us
we will thank him to present his claim
and if we owe it we will try to pay it. I
Remember after February first The e c
Herald end News is going to be cash e
