The warm welcome accorded the Palatka Daily News has been most encour
aging to the publishers. It is proof positive that the American people are
demanding more speed, even in getting the world's' news. We print it the
day it happens; The afternoon paper is steadily gaining in public favor.
It is distinctly the home paper everywhere.
World's Greatest
Afternoon Service
The Palatka Daily News carries the United Press afternoon service. This
organization serves more afternoon papers than any two news associations
in the country. It is crisp, interesting and reliable. It speaks for itself as
it is presented daily in the columns of the Daily News. This servioe will
be increased in number of words as soon as additional facilities for handling
"it are received. .
Why We Chose The
Afternoon Field
The publishers chose to enter the afternoon field, in preference to the morn
ing field for reasons that are so obvious that there was no occasion for hesi
tancy. If experience had proven that the morning fields is the most Jde
sirable in cities the size of Palatka present conditions here would not have
decided the publishers not to enter that field. But the afternoon field is
the field for the advertiser and the reader locally.
In the United States there are two afternopn papers for every morning paper
In Elorida there are nineteen afternoon papers and eleven morning papers.
In no city is there a morning paper where there isn't an afternoon paper
except Palatka.
These figures prove that the demand of advertisers is that their store news
shall be circulated on thejday it is printed and on the day that current news
happenings are chronicled. In lajge centers of population the morning
papers depends, to a large extent, on its general circulation outside
the local field. .
Seventy-five per cent of the advertising for local readers in New York and
Chicago is carried by the afternoon papers,
The afternoon paper goes into the home before supper, just whenjthe house
wife is finishing her day's work and when the husband has come home from
his labors. From it is mapped out tomorrow's purchases, as there is no
time in the morning for wife or husband to look over the morning paper un
til after the first rush of activity incident to the starting of the day.
This is the age of speed and people want the news the day it happens,
why the publishers chose to enter the afternoon field.
