Boost Home Enterprise.
That is what every citizen of
Monroe City owes to himself, to his
town. Always patronize a home
institution in preference to a big
concern in some other town. That
is the only way we can expect to be
a prosperous community. Keep
our money at home by patronizing
home enterprises. If we stand to
gether business will be batter for
all of us but when a large or small
per cent of the peiple patronize a
foreign institution in preference to
the home institution we do not
prosper as we should. Then let us
all resolve to get into the right line
by patronizing home institutions

UNCLE SAM AFTER
Subscribers More Than a Year De-
linquent Must Pay or Be
Taken Off List.
I The Times and other country pa
I pers find they are up against a hard
I proposition just at present, and are
I liable to find ourselves in serious
i trouble just on account of being a
I little lenient with some of our sub-
Some time ago the postal depart
ment ruled that weekly newpsapers
should not be sent to subscribers
after they become one year in ar
rears. The Times has tried hard
with kind words to get its subscrib
ers to keep paid up within this
limit, but without entire success.
Many of them, people of wealth,
have not given heed to our call to
pay up. But the day of reckoning
is close at hand. All country pub
lishers the past week received from
the postal department, a letter call
ing attention to the law, and asking
for a report on every copy of their
paper, in which, the publisher must
state under oath how many copies
he is mailing to subscribers who
are a year or more in arrears, and
on which one cent postage should
be attached each week. This rate
of postage as everyone knows, is
sufficiently high to prevent the pub
lisher from complying without a
direct loss to him, and the matter
adjusts itself in the solution that
the only thing to do with these
people who are either awfully neg
lectful or else expect two or three
years' credit, is to drop their names
from the list, rather to suffer the
consequences of the postal laws.
Consequently the letter received
from the department, means "the
parting of the ways," and as much
as we would like to go on extending
credit to subscribers to whom we
please, we can not longer do so.
Please remember, this order must
effect all alike, whether you are rich
or poor, and Uncle Sam is behind
the gun. He tells us what we must
do. Now do your duty, and do it
quick, if you are one of the neg
No doubt many have not taken
the warnings given heretofore in
earnest, probably thinking that it
was a plan on our part to get the
dilatory ones to be more prompt. If
so, we hope the reading of the above

ter. Look at the tag on your paper
or wrapper and the date stamped
thereon tells to what date your pa
per is paid. Winchester (111.)
