Ijoaq [nets WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT OF THE RECORD'S SOUVENIR HOLIDAY EDITION | ; ! 0 IN this page we publish | a bunch of clippings from a number of our contemporaries and ex- j tracts of letters received by The Record containing nice things about our big souvenir holi day edition. We are not publish ing this with a view of llattering ourselves, infering therefrom that we are "blown up" and have the "big head," but to show that the edition has been the means of ad vertising Roundup and the great Musselshell country to no little ex tent. After reading the compli mentry notices the business men, whose assistance made it possible to issue this number, can form a better opinion as to whether bis aid was misspent or not. That the business men feel that it was of great value to the city of Roundup is clearly shown by the fact that at the meeting of the Commercial Club Tuesday evening a vote of thanks was extended to the editor. We heartily appreciate the many kindly expressions occasioned by our effort and extend our thanks. EXECUTIVE OFFICE Helena, Mont. Dec. 17, 1908. Editor "Roundup Record," Roundup, Montana. Dear Sir: 1 have received and examined the souvenir copy of the "Roundup Record" and desire to congratulate you upon the issuance of a most creditable and interesting Christ mas edition. With Christmas greetings and with best wishes for the success of the "Record" and the growth and prosperity of Roundup and vicinity, I am, Yours truly, Edwin L. Norris, Governor. i ■ • • V ' •• -v: • -7 -* - - The of Game--One of Montana s Great Resources-Is One cf the Many Things to Hold the Attention cf the Legislature Which is Now in Session BIG PAPER FOR ONE-YEAR OLD TOWN Lewistown Democrat Taking all things into considera tion, the best Christmas paper which has come to the desk of the Demo crat's editor is the Roundup Record. The Record is published in a town less than one year old anti con taining only about one thousand people. The holiday edition con sisted of twenty pages which in cluded thirty or forty columns of special matter, excellently written and displayed in a most artistic manner, relative to Roundup and the surrounding country. The mer chants of Roundup showed their ap preciation of the paper in a sub stantial manner, all of them being represented with good ads. Editor Eiselein deserves unstinted credit for the progressiveness and energy displayed in getting out this splen did edition. RECORD A WINNER Belfry News The Christmas edition of the it a Roundup Record is before us. Ty pographically, editorially and every other way the paper is a "pippin," We have never been in Roundup but if the town is as good as the paper which represents it, we gam ble it is a live wire. Incidentally it is generally possible to judge a town bv its newspaper, so we are going to take it for granted that Roundup is a winner from the word go. We know it to be a fact, after seeing just one issue of The Record, that it has at least one goocj, writer and one good printer. The paper shows it from the first page to the last page. May it always keep up the pace it is now setting. CREDITABLE IN EVERY WAY Terry Tribune Editor Eiselein of the Roundup Record gets right in the field with a splendid Christmas edition. It is full of Roundup and hard work— creditable in every way. And more than that when one comes to count up ten pages and better of good home advertising—and from a town that was only a bit of wild Mont ana prairie early last June, not only is Mr. Eiselein to be congratulated on his good Christmas edition— but on his town of Roundup and Roundup is certainly to be congrat uloted on its good newspaper. WANTS MORE TOWNS LIKE ROUNDUP Editor Record:—We received the copy of your Holiday edition of the Record. We wish to congratulate you upon the splendid workman ship and general makeup of your paper. It is with much pleasure we note the progressive and enter prising sprit shown by you and the other citizens of Roundup. We want more towns like the one you live in. Yours very truly, .1. t). Adams. AN ARTISTIC EDITION Franklin,( Minn.)Trlbune. The average "Holiday edition" of a weekly newspaper doesn't ap peal very forcibly to the Tribune ed itol's art instincts. There is too much suggestion of rush and ex haustion of limited type supplies and above all too much exaltation of the owner's own editorial and copy triumph as a rule. The best spe cial edition that came to this office was the Roundup (Montana) Record owned by A. W. Eiselein, a former Renville county boy. It contained twenty pages of clean artistic and well edited matter and cannot fail to be a splendid advertisement of the resourceful section that it so cleverly mirrored. A COMING TOWN. Minneapolis, Minn. Editor Record:—We are just in receipt of your holiday edition and we want to congratulate you on the size and makeup of this edition. It is certainly a fine paper and your town of Roundup should be proud of it. Roundup looks like a com ing town to us. Printers' .Supply Co. TAKES THE PLUM. Lewistown, Mont., Editor Record:—I received a copy of your Christmas edition and I want to say that it is a dandy from start to finish. You can just reach up and take the plum—it's yours. When a town the size of Roundup can turn out a paper like that—well it is going some. .1. S. Flanagan. Judith Gap Journal:—The Round up Record's souvenir holiday edi tion is all that anyone could ask for in a splendid literary and typ ographical production. Roundup ought to be proud of its wideawake, enterprising newspaper. The Ismay: The Ismay is in re ceipt of a souvenir holiday edition of the Roundup Record having a finely colored title page and replete with a discriptive writeup of the business circle of the town and mining camp are presented and it contains a liberal amount of adver tising. The edition is not only a credit to Roundup but shows the enterprise of the publisher and the business firms represented. Bird Island (Minn.) Union: One of the finest Christmas editions which came to our exchange list was that of the Roundup Record edited by A. W. Eiselein, formerly an employee in this office. 2t con sisted of twenty pages and was the acme of makeup, choice read ing matter and liberally patronized by advertisers. Laurel Sentniel: The Roundup Record has just issued a 20 page Souvenier Holiday edition that cer tainly is a credit to the town and shows the editor is not afarid of a lot of hard work, and believes in doing all he can for the advance ment of his town and community. Canton, S. D. Editor Record:—Your Souvenir Holiday Edition is received here. Let me sav that you have done yourself proud in getting up such an enterprise. You deserve consider able credit. Merry Christmas. Geo. S. Evans. Forsyth Journal: The Journal acknowledges the receipt of a very handsome holiday edition issued by our sprightly contemporary, the Roundup Record.
