tnrough the house and it may be too
late to do anything to help the situation.
But the case is so desperate I
can not help speaking." so said yesterday
the Rev. Z. T. Cody of Greenville,
editor of The Baptist Courier, in
discussing the State reformatory.
"I have no criticism of the committee,"
Dr. Cody said. "I appreciate <-he
motive that has controlled their efforts
in preparing the bill; and the
difficulties they have had to face are
greater, 1 am sure, than any of us
realize. Every cause has clamored
for an increase and the people seem
to demand that there shall be a decrease.
What can a committee do under
"There is, I know, an increase of
about $6,000 over last year. But note
this: Last year the superintendent
ihad to borrow about $7,000 or $S,000
to meet the bills for the necessaries
of life. If he has to pay the amount
borrowed out of the appropriations
for this year, rne will have left less
than he had last year for the running
^expenses of the institution.
"He can not run the Iiotep on
and by 'can not' I mean can not. Humanity
demands that he have more

we did not feel that it would be wise

that time business was fearfully dull
and the people were blue and remained
very much in that frame of mind until
the close of the summer. We decided,
and so stated, that we would not take'
f any names off our list until the fall,
! at least, and that if any one did not
| care for the paper or intend to pay
i for it please to notify us and we would 1
take the name off the list. We have ]
been 'very much gratified that so few

paptr. In looking over our mailing
lisi on Friday we found that in the
short period of ten months we had ac- i
cumulated about S00 whose date still \
bears the figures 1915. iWe have'
thought about a contest, but our experience
with contests is not satisfactory.
If you get the contestants interested
you get the subscribers and
collect the money, but by the time you
pay the premiums and the commissions
to the managers there is nothing |
left, and so we abandoned that idea. I
To get some one to collect the back
dues will cost over 30 per cent. So
that is not practicable.
We want to get on the cash basis
again. In fact, it is the only way to
bonriio thp cnhscrintinn list of a coun
try paper. On the credit system we
accumulated at one time once before
over ten thousand dollars on back sub-1
scription, and charged it off at one |
time. We can not afford to do that!
any more, but we find that In wu
months we have accumulated abc"^ j
$1,200 on this account. We can notj
stand that either. We know that our
subscribers will realize the force of
what we here say.
We do hot want to part with any of a
you. We love you as a member of the ?
family. We do not desire to be under-1 6
stood as being inclined to put a pre-11
mium on getting in arrears. But we ^
want to give you an opportunity and j
an inducement to get in advance again.
So we have decided to give you the ^
paper for one year for ONE DOLLAR. ,
