WEDNESDAY, EKB. 1?, 1991.
One of tho good local papers of
South Carolina ceased to appear re
cently, and III the last Issue of that
paper -The Fountain Inn Tribune
Robert Quillen, tho editor took oc
casion to remark:
"In times Uko thOSc, subscribers
are unable to pay. In times like
these, merchants are unable to ad
vertise, for advertising won't sell
goods unless people have money to
"Consequently tho Tribuno is now
without revenue, and must suspend
publication. The publisher has no
choice in the matter. Printers must
have wages, and paper houses dc
maud pay for their wares-not next
fall, but now.
"When conditions justify a re
sumption of publication, each sub
scriber will be given full credit for
ihf lime the paper was suspended.
In the meantime the Tribune's good
friends are asked to be patient."
There is something that may well
he considered carefully by the citi
zens of every small town where a
local newspaper is published. One
of those things is fur the Individual
citizen, who may well ask himself If
his name is constantly on the sub
scription Hst of his local paper as
n pn id-in-iwl vance subscriber Ann

por"'or i'? a.>ss io our l<.. ai pi
per in the way of advertising? The
local support of tho local paper is
the real basis of its ability to operate
at a living profit.
There would have been fewer sus
pensions of newspapers In the coun
try during the past few years had
they been given but a reasonable pa
tronage. Too many people look upon
the local paper as a sort of charity
feeling that the price of subscription
paid for the paper is a sort of gift
and that advertising bills are merely
contributions toward tho living of
those whose daily and weekly and
yearly task it is to produce them and
send them out.
We have, since last Wednesday, re
ceived two contributions for the Save
a Child" fund (Kuropoan Relief.)
which fact shows that our people
have not forgotten tho "invisible
guest" and are still ready to add to
the fund that is destined to save the
lives of thousands of little ones to
be of service in future yours In the
betterment of civilization overseas
and in the great work of establishing
stronger peace relations between the
nations of the earth. Tho "Save a

The New York Olee Club is com
posed of four young men who have
been in concert work for many years,
and have appeared before widely vary
ing audiences.
Their program contains numbers of
vastly different types, yet each num
ber, whatever its* nature, ls rendered
in appropriate fashion, ond with
thc animation and enthusiasm these
young men possess. In clearness and
enunciation, In harmonious blending
of voices, and In effective rendition of
every number, the New York Glee
Club ranks among the best.
Each member of the New York Oleo
Club ls a musical artist. One ls a
brilliant story-teller anti accompanist,
thus adding decided strength to the
company. His stories, combined with
the latest novelties arranged for solos,
duets, trios, and the ensemble work
of tho company, produce a program
of most pleasing variety.
Tho New York Glee Club does not
give instrumental work, but ls an ex
clusively vocal quartet, thus enabling
tho management to offer four really
first class vocalists and entertainers.
