Thumbnail for FIVE

As we have stated before, when The
* Herald and Xews resumed publication
last February, after a brief suspension
we did not feel that it would be wise
to commence at once the old rule of
. cas-h in advance, and then, besides, at
that time business was fearfully dull
and the people were blue and remained
very much in that frame of mind until
? ?-*- - ---- ttt.
' tne Close 01 me summer, we uaiueu,
and so stated, that we would not take
any names off our list until the fall,
at least, and that if any one did not
care for the paper or intend to pay
for it please to notify us and we would

been ivery much gratified that so fewdiscontinued.
In fact we did not lose
a dozen.
But now times are better and more
money is in circulation, and we muse
be paid the small amount that is due
usv or we can not continue to send the
paper. Ill iOOlving <j>ci yui iuamufe
list on Friday we found that in the
short period of ten months we had accumulated
about 800 whose date still
bears the figures 1915. ;\Ve have
1 thought about a contest, but our experience
with contests is not satisTf

leresied you get the subscribers and
collect the money, but by the time you
i pay the premiums and the commissions
to the managers fnere is nothing
left, and so we abandoned that idea.
To get some one to collect the back
dues will cost over 30 per cent. So
(that is not practicable.
We want to get on the cash basis
again. In fact, it is the only way to
handle the subscription list of a country
paper. On the credit system we
accumulated at one time once before

scription, and charged it off at one
time. We can not afford to do that
any more, bat we find that tn
months we have accumulated abc*^
$1,200 on this account. We can not
-stand that either. We know that our
subscribers will realize- the force of
what we here say.
We do not want to part with any of
you. We love you as a member of the
family. We do not desire to be under-1
ci/wi n? h^ine' inclined to i>ut a pre
mium on getting in arrears. But we
want to give you -an opportunity and
an inducement to get in advance again.
9o we have decided to give you the
paper fof one year for ONE DOLLAR,
if it is paid by or before March 1, 1S16,
at 6 p. m. This applies to old sub
scriberts, wh<v are in arrears, ana new
subscriberts and all others. fWfe want
to treat every one alike and be fair
t to all. So even if you are paid in ad^
vance you can get a year for ONE
S|r DOLLAR. We will not take a subm
scription at this rate for less than a
W year nor for longer than two years.
After the first of March every namej
| on our mailing list that has not paid
at least to 1916 will be stricken off.
i There will be no respector of persons
* oil account of anything. We do this
to give those who ha.ve gotten behind
an opportunity to catch up, and in
order to be fair to those who are in
advance they can have the same rate

pay the collector. Whp not earn it and
earn it now? This is the only opportunity.
. We are going to give you a better
? paper than we have ever given and
I that means some paper. This is going
to be a political year, and while The
Herald and News is not going to be in
politics or tcte the skillet for any of
the politicians, we expect to print the
news and give all sides a fair and
square deal, and tell the truth as we
see it. We will comment and criticize

Through the co-operation of Winthrop
college and the U. S. department
of agriculture, the county home demonstrator
workers of South Carolina
were aiioraea tne opporiumy tn
spending the month of January at
Winthrop college. Courses in agriculture,
poultry, domestic science, canning,
home conveniences and dairying
were taught by members of Wint'nrop
faculty, members of the South. Carolina
home demonstrator workers and
officials from the department of agri
culture in Washington. The courses
were very interesting, the rural communities
always being foremost in the
In addition ro the benefits derived
from clie above courses, the exchange
of ideas of the thirty county agents
was helpful, the spirit of co-operation,
being prevalent at all times.
I should like this opportunity of
thanking the people of this county for
their hearty co-operation in ray work
during the past year. As I launch out
on the beginning of another year I
shall still count on your co-operation.
ivVith -ast year's- experience and the
co-operaiion of my demonstrators, we
hope to accomplish still greater things
in 1916.
If any school or community, which
I have not visited, would like to know
something or co-operate in our work,
I shall be glad for them to communicate
with me.
