HURLEY, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, JANUARY
With this issue of the Herald com
mences its third year under the
writer's management. It is not
amiss to state that the patronage
given the Herald the past year is
appreciated, and that the business
has been sufficient to obviate the
necessity of asking for contributions.
The subscription list is much
larger, the advertising has more
than doubled and our job-work de
partment is always rushed.
The plant is paid for—the office
force is paid each week in cash, and
there are no outstanding bills for

out of the office by an irate subscrib

three members of the editor&l fam
ily have gaiped .over one-hundred
pounds, not each, but collectively.
From above stated facts can be
gathered the reason for our "re
marks of appreciation." Hurley is
good^ enough for us and we are
going to give you a better paper
this year than here-to-fore. We are
going to do your job-work quicker
and better. We are going to boost

spend our money in Hurley dnd we
want you to patronize the Herald in
all its branches for we expect to
make it deserving of patronage.
