BSentinel will charge regular ad

box suppers, oyster suppers, baztaars,
entertainments, etc., where the aim
is to make money for any ecuse' what
stoover. We have given away hundreds
of dollars worth of advertising for
these money-raising affairs during the
past five years, but we are unable to
contmnue it and get out a good paper
without raising the subscription p~rice.
We must reserve our space for news
for our subscribers. The rate for this
class of advertising is one cent a word
for the first insertion and one-half
cent a word for each subsequent in
sertion, cash to accompany ad~vertise
ment. Please do not ask us to deviate
from this rule.
