out New Year Is our wish this morning
for the friends and patrons of the

the hardest year of our experience in
the newspaper business, and our obser

branches of business have suffered a
like derers'on. Hut with the new
year wb hope for bciter times, and shall
use, as we have ever done, our best ef
forts to make our paper worthy of a
liberal patronage, and endeavor to ad- I
vance the interests of our city, county
in tnis connection we would say
that in accordance with our intentions
announced some time since, we wil
be compelled to drop from our sub
scription list the names of many who
are in arrears, and those who fail to
receive their paper after this date, may
attribute it to this cause, and if they
desire to receive it longer, must come
forward with their arrearages, and
year's subscription in advance. Ne
cessity forces us to this step, and we
mean what we say.
