TOWN IIEYON I) ESTIMATION
It Is the Mirror as Well as the Eye
and Moutpiece of a Community.
"Old Ilurrygraph" (.1. A. Itobinson
of Durham) contrilbuted the follow-1
iig article on the value of a news
paper to the first issue of the Gralnite
"Every place of importance in this
busy, hustling age, has its local news
paper. It has long since become an
established fact that a newspaper is
the mirror of a thrifty community.
I It is also the eye and mouthpiece of
that community. Publicity is a great
moving force in these times of live
"A newspaper is not only the most
intelligent force in advertising a town
aiid keeping it on the map, but it is
also a telling force between the seller
and the buyer. It brings the two to
gether, and thereby creates trade. It
is the most economical means of draw
ing attention to a town as well as the
quickest mode of communication be
tween the citizens of a community.
Its advertising columns, where they
live,, wide-awake business men see the
advantage of letting the public know%
who they are and where they do busi
ness, inl a finie spirit of liberality, tellF
the story of a town's various enter
pjrises. This catches the eye of the
public and rivets it upon the towm
with a live newspaper.

Write or phon
ing about; new people move in who
are not acquainted with the local ner
chants, the manufacturers, the va
rious new, as well as the older in
habitants, and it is regarded by the
most successful businesses as the best
medium through which to keep their
trades constantly before the public.
People look in the newspapers for
what they want. They haven't time,'
like in the olden days gone by, to
walk around and hunt bargains. Peo
ple are in a hurry. The newspaper
carries your trade and invitation into
their homes and serves as a silent
salesman-in fact, your advertisement
works for you while you sleep.
"The advertising advantages of a
paper to a town is not its only value.
The local news, the social gossip,
which will be found in no other paper,
creates an nthusiasm which gives
life and energy to a place. It helps
neighbors tW know about the achieve
ments of each other. It stimulates
town pride and lets the world know
what you are doing. It. is as good as
a weekly letter from home to those
at a distance. It gives encouragement
and boost to local enterprises they
would not otherwise get. The value
o)f a newspaper to a community can
hardly be estimated.
"The faith a town puts into its
newspaper is the faith that builds
towns. The power of the press can
not be estimated in words. A success
ful paper must have the co-operation
of the community. Every advertiser
--and every man in business should
advertise-and every subscriber is the
maker of a good paper. His patron
age in either case is the life blood of
the enterprise. The unity of the
whole, behind and backing the pub
lisher-makes the best paper possible
in any community. Put your need of
a good newspaper in the hands of
faith and its publisher. Faith in the
enterprise, and back of that faith a
hearty and cheerful patronage. Don't
ask how, why or when. Just do your
level best for your town paper, and
have an abiding faith, which is the
great miracle-worker of the age.
Many a place has grown from a
mere hamlet to a big thriving town
by the efforts of its newspaper, and,
the faith its citizens had in it, and
backed up that faith with co-operation
with the publisher."
