We have fully determined to adopt
the strictly cash In advance system
fur all subscriptions to the Stand
aud, and henceforward will adhere
rigidly to the system. For several
years we have entered no new sub
scribers without advance payments,
but we have allowed subscriptions to
run over time for which they were
paid, and we find that the losses from
this practice aggregate from two hun
dred to three hundred dollars ,'per
year. From this date forward, all
subscriptions to the Standard will
be discontinued when the time for
which they are paid expires. This
is fair to all parties, and the only sys
tem by which a newspaper can be
run without loss. On the first of Jan
uary, 1891, every subscriber on our
list who is not paid to some time be
yond that date, will be cut off. The
date under your name on the margin
of the paper shows to what time your
subscription is paid. We request
every subscriber to examine this date,
and if it does not read to some time
in '91, remit to us before the 1st of
January, or your paper will be dis
contined. Don't delude yourself with
the idea that this is a mere threat,
and that your paper will come on as
usual. Nobody will get the Stand
ard in 1891 without paying for it in

'"oncy makes the mare go, and without money the mare
can't go. Uur rail bills are maturing and we must have
money. Weare going to depend on the following sources:
In the first place we want every man, woman and child who
owes us from 5 cents to $500, to come at once and pay us. Now
is it right for us to ask you to do this ? There are two months
in the year we need money most. One time is
when the fall bills are due and MUST BE PAID. We extend
accommodations during the months we can spare our capital,
and we think it IS RIGHT to ask a consideration of the de
mands made upon us at this season. We hope our customers
will not forget us. Don't wait thirty days. Make your calcu
lation to pay us from Dec. 1st to 10th.
Our next way of raising the money we must have, is that'
we are going to offer some ,
in our lines of Dress Goods, including the better class of goods,
also Outings and Flannels. , Also a large collection of
Hoods, Tobogans, Fascinaters, Towels, Napkins, Hosiery,
