More people have read The bun during the year just now passing than ever before since it was first printed. No other newspaper published on this side of tye earth has been bought and read in any year by somnany men and women. We are credibly informed that people buy. read, and like The Sun for the following reasons, among others: Because its new columns present in attractive form and with the greatest possible accurac) whatever has interest for humankind; the events' the deeds and misdeeds, the wisdom, the philoso phy, the notable folly, the solid sense, the improv ing nonsense-all the news of the busiest world at present revolving in space. Because people have learned that in its remarks concerning persons and affairs The Sun makes a practice of telling them the exact truth to the best of its ability three hundred and sir ty-five days ii, the year,before election,as well as after, about the whales as well as about the small fish, in the face of dissent asplainly and fearlessly as wnen sulo ported by general approval The Sun has abso lutely no purposes to serve, save the information of its readers and the furtherance of the common good. Because in politics it has fought for a dozen years, without intermission and sometimes almost alone among newspapers. the fight that has re salted in the recent overwhelming popular ver4 diet against Robesonism and for honest govern ment. No matter what party is in power, The Sun stands and will continue to stand like a rock for the interests of the people against the ambition of bosse$. the enroachments of monopolists, and the dishonest schemes of public robbers. 'All this is what we are told almost d tuly by our friends. One man holds-that The Sun is the best religious newspaper ever published, becnuse its Christianity is undiluted with cant. Another holdsthat it isthe best Republican neawspaper printed, because it has already whipped half of the rasoatl outof that ptrty, and is proceeding ngaitust the other half with undiminished vigor. A third believesit to bBthe best magazine of general liter atureinexistence,because its reatlersmiss unoth ng worthy of notice that is current in the woril of hought. So every ft ie+d of The Siun discovers one.ofitsmany sides that appeals with particular foroe to hit indivldutl liking. If youalready know - The Sun, you will observe that in 1888 It is a little better than ever bef ire. If you do not already know The Sun, you will find it oo be a mirrorof 41 humanactivit,. a storehouse of the choicest products of commonsenue and im aglnation, a malaltay for the cause of honest gov ernment, a sentinel for genuine Jeffersonian Demo oracy, a scourge for wickedness of every species, and an oncommonly good investment for the com ing year.
