Happenings During The Holidays
Death of Mrs. Laura Hardy
Whiitmire. Dec. 31.-A happy New
Year to the editor and readers of
The Herald and News. The old yeai
is past. The mistakes which we have
made during it cannot be corrected.
Let our editor resolve to do more
than he has ever done to fill the pages
of The Herald and News with items
bright and fresh and in his editorials
and clippings wield Iiis influence for;,
all that is good and ennobling. As I
readers let us recognize the cash-in- ]
advance system. Perhaps the editor-'
ials, yea the whole paper., would be I
better, if the editor knew every sub- I
scription- was paid. Let us not read

there is too much criticism in the
world of today. It robs life of many

CASH IN ADVANCE.
In March, 1SS-. I became a part
>wner of The Herald and News and
xave been connected with the paper
?ontinuously since that time. I waR
rith the paper a couple of ylars prior
1o tha.t time when under other own
rship. I have, therefore, been the
editor for nearly twenty-five years.
During that time my duties have al
;o been to keep the books and sub
I have always had great faith and
-onfidence in the honesty of the peo
le and their purpose to pay their
febts. For that reason I have never
)elieved I could conduct a strictly
:ash in advance subscription.
For the past few months I have
)een giving a closer study to the sit
iation than ever before.
When the postoffice department is
;ued its order that a subscription to
i semi-weekly more than nine months
n-.arrears could not be accepted at
,he second-class rate we endeavored
;o comply with the order and had to
mutt off about 650 names. We first
sent each subscriber at least two let
;mrs calling attention to the ruling be
-ides mention of it was made in the
?aper. This fall we have sent an
)ther letter to these persons but we
1ave received no response.
These 650 owed us over $5,000.
kJany of them not only did not pay
v!iat they owel but w,?i directly and
:Tbscribed f.: o--r ec.Lemporary and
)aid for it. We have no objection to
;hat but we mention it as a reason
!or the shaking of our faith in the
ionesty of the people. It certainly
vas a striking evidence of ingratitude.
We still 'ave a good many sub
;cribers who are in arrears. State
nents have been sent or will be sent
n a few days to all of these.
During the 25 years of our connec
ion with this newspaper we have
ost in unpaid sub:criptions at least
20,000. We have no one to blame
mt ourself and the people would
iave thought more of us if we had
nade them pay it. We are not com
)laining but we propose to stop this
eak or go out of the business.
After the first day of February The
erald and News will be run strictly
