e- Here is what an exchange has
0- to say about the conditions the
e. papers over the country are hav
!d ing to face.
in "$ la Year Newspapers Are Fast
w Passing Away.
ie The one dollar a year news
e, paper will be a rarity by the
, first of next year, judging from
e the number of publishers who
is are increasing rates. With the
to high cost of paper and material
is he has no other alternative but
to to get more money for either sub.
te scriptions or advertising, or pre
ie ferably both."
e For many years the Watchman
has been one dollar a year and
we would dislike very much to be
d. forced to raise the rate. And
in order to overcome this
,. situation, we will ask that all our
delinquent subscribers come in
- and pay up.
I If you have a frie d who is not but
U asubscri ber. bring in his subscrip. yu
tion the some time. If our many you
readers will come toour assistance
in this hour of distress, we will be
able to retain our old rate, and
improve our service.
