Lake Charles Press: Whenever
you hear a man sneering at the local
paper, saying there is nothing in it,
that it is not as big, cheap or nwsy

that he does not squander his wealth

likely owes for a year's subscription.
Generally that same paper has done i
ten times as much for such a man as
he has ever done for the paper. .
