There seems to be a misunb
derstanding among a few of our city
patrons as to the subscription rate to
The News when it is delivered by car
I jiers In the city the rate is 10
Cents per week or 45 cents per month
by mail the rate is 300 per year or
25 cents per month
The difference in the rate to city sub
scribers by carrier and the mail de
livery is caused by the difference in
c st to The News In the city the
boys must be paid for the delivering
and the collector for making the col
lection While on the r ral routes

An English inventor has devised
a process by which it is possible to
purifyrock salt direct and on a ba
sis which is not commercially pro
hibitiver Hitherto in preparing
white table salt it has been neces
sary to depend upon the evaporation
of brine The new process consists
of melting the rock salt andsending
compressed ther
molten mass Impurities are sep
arated and deposited and the salt
is left white and pure The puri
fied salt is found to be exception
ally fine and being anhydrous does
not cake after the fashion of brine
