The Day Book is not like any
other newspaper or magazine.
It is the only adless newspaper
in the world. As it does not ac
cept advertising under any cir
cumstances, and has no source of
revenue except its receipts from
circulation, it is -the freest and
most independent newspaper in
the world.
It owes nothing to anybody or
any interest except its own read
ers ; and it owes no more to a man
worth a hundred millions than it
owes to the poorest individual
who can pay the subscription
price of 6 cents a week.
It can publish in convenient
size because it takes no advertis
ing. It is the only newspaper in
Chicago that depends entirely on
its readers for whatever money
it gets. i
It belongs to no political party,
and doesn't care a whoop for all
the politicians in town. And it
doesn't .belifeve in the ..Socialist
party, any more than it believes
in the Democratic, Republican or
Prohibition parties.
It doesn't belong to the news
paper trust, and never will.
It doesn't "believe in newspaper
bossism any morejhan it believes,
in finanpial, social, political or
any other kind of bossism.
It does believe, however, in
government of the people, by the
people and for the people; and it
believes that public officials
should be public servants instead
of public masters. ,
Itbelieves the people in a. free
country should be freehand it.be
lieves that a real newspaper
should give its readers the truth,
whether the newspaper likes the
truth or not.
It is more interested in the
health, happiness and daily life of
the men, women and children in
Chicago than it is in the fluctua
tions of the stock markets, the do
ings of high sassiety, the making
of millionaires, the increase in the
value of real estate, the selfish
ambition of office-seekers artd the
interests of big business.
As for creed and church, itfrec
ognizes the right of every man
to worship God according to the
dictates of his own conscience,
and that it is none of The Day
Book's business.
In general, it is a paper for the
great 95 per cent of the' men,
women and children who make up
the city of Chicago, and wants to
do all it can to advance their in
terests. The subscription price, deliv
ered "at the home, is 6 cents a
week. And for that you, will get
all the truth we can- find out
about things .that interesft you,
A&.'we see it the people can do
theif-own thinking. if they know
the truth. And the people" of
Chicago need a free newspaper
like The Day Book
o o p-
Short arms donot-keep some
men from patting themselves on
the back.
