To show that the Saturday News is gaining new subscribers every
day we will state that our regular bona fide list of subscibers reached
1835 this week. When we put on the diamond contest we eimed to
reach the two thousand mark by the close of the contest, but we would
not be surprised to see the list run up to several hundred more than we
had figured on. The best thing about our subscripiton list is the fact
that it is all alive—not two dozen subscribers in arrears over one year.
There is not another weekly paper in the state that can beat this record.
