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 service 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 Ingjfield for reasons that are so obvious tnat there was no occasion for hesi tancy. If experience had proven that the morning fields is the most de 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 afternoon 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 the day it is printed and on the day that current news happenings are chronicled. In large 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 when the 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 morniug 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.
