How to All the News All the Time Life is so short and uncertain that no one can afford to spend several hours in the morning vainly trying to find out what happened yester day. But people who persist in reading the average cumbersome sheet of the present age are com pelled to do so if they want to keep abreast of the times. Readers who are thus wasting a large portion of their existence in wading through the dismal and uninteresting details dished up by the. blanket sheet newspapers should subscribe for The Herald This great journal prints all the news all the time. It is never "scooped." In its columns will be found the world's events for the previous twenty-four hours, pre sented in such a concise and con densed form that it is a pleasure and not a pain to peruse them. In The Herald you can glean all the news In a Few Minutes Compare it with any other Cali fornia newspaper, not only in price but in contents and style of make up. Why pay nearly twice the amount for an inferior journal ? On and after April Ist The Herald will cost but 50 Cents $5.00 a Month and a Year by Carrier by Mail Branch offices ere established in all the important towns in Southern California, from which it is deliv ered daily by carrier. If such an agency is not convenient, send $5 and receive it every day by mail for one year. This reduction, which will make The Herald the Best and Cheapest Morning newspaper on the Pacific Coast, will go into effect on the first of April. This is an era of cheap newspapers throughout the east, and the proprietors of The Herald have determined to give the people of Southern California all the advantages enjoyed by east ern readers. The Sunday Herald Will be especially notable and ex cellent, and will challenge compari son with those issued by any paper on the coast. The Herald's bat tery of Mergenthaler typesetting machines will soon be in effective operation, and a newspaper printed on a bright, neat, new, clean dress of type will be presented to its thousands of readers every morning.
