Good morning, have you paid your
subscription for this year?- Perhaps
you owe us for last year, or several
years, or maiybe for job work or ad
vertising. Now, you understand, we
don't need the money, we have mil
lions--to get. But it is really an
imposition on our part to let peoplle
go on carrying our money arouud
when we are so strong and healthy
and abundantly able to bear the bur
den ourselves. For this reason we
ask everybody who has any of our
money in his possession to leave it at
the ofice, or send it by mail, freight,
express or any other way, just so it
gets here. Silver and gold are heavy,
and it would be a matter of life long
regi-et if anyone should get bow-legged
carrying it around for us.
