ONE DOLLAR A YEAR.
The credit system is the curse of the
country paper. Not to exceed one half
of the papers sent out from the country
press of the whole country are ever
paid for. The consequence is that the
subscription price must be fuily double
that of a paper run on a cash basis.
After April Ist, no copy of the'lMPßK
i.\l y Pkkss will be sent out unless paid
for in advance, and in every case after
that date the subscription will be dis
continued with the expiration of the
time paid for. Running thus on a
cash basis, the subscrition price can be
reduced to $1 a year, a price within the
reach of everybody.
