We were asked this week by a
delinquent subscriber why we kept
on sending the paper after the
subscription date has expired
Every weekly newspaper in towns
of this size are forced to do this
Should we stop subscriptions when
the timd expires nine times out of
the subscriber would give us a
call down for insinuating that
his credit was not good Rather
than to cast a reflection against
the honesty of a subscriber topay a
small debt it is next to a necessity
for a home paper to continue
sending the paper after the time
hasf expired It is not necessary
for the city dailies or weeklies to
follow this rule as their subscrib
ers live at a distance and are not
personal friends as is the case witn
the majority ofOU1 subscribers
Our subscribers should deem it an
doubt their integrity and continue
r to send them the paper after their
time has expired Should suy de
I sire their paper discontinued they
should notify us and remit to date
then if the paper is not stopped we
I guarantee that it doesnt cost them
