THE MAN All the News All the Time. VOL. I. llANSPIELD, WRIGHT COUNTY. MISSOURI. OCTOBER 9, 1908. NO. SUBSCRIPTION 11.00 PER YEAR. A Better Town, More advantages, Comforts and Conveniences, 33216 1 ALTER n. PYLES, EDITOR AND PUBUSHE SFIE, n s . 3 The Mansfield Press Oar appearance upon the Are na will be a surprise to many, It is a surprise to u.t however, to see a town the size of Mans field, with as many wid awake busicess men, and uo newspaper. For such a town to be without a newspaper is like ship with out a rudder, drifting about on unknown seas with uo medium through which to make its purposes known. We are not new ia the business and await the decission of the sJanstield readers and the public in general as to whether we mean business or not The sitaatioa in the news paper field here ia that the. peo ple have to be shown. And on the other hand the man behind the press has to have assurance that the people want a news paper and are willing to support it, otherwise it will be impossi ble to make a newspaper. The man who runs a news paper is not independent, in fact it depends on the people of the community as to whether the paper is wide awake to its no interests, and we are the "Man Behind' who can do the work, acting as a medium, if you will give us the wotk to do. The business nen of Mansfield are not divided and seem to be pulling together, which is half the battle in the making of a ive wideawake, business center. "A homo divided against itself cannot atand." So. a newspaper's success de pends, financially on its adver tiser, it cannot live without "ais." W depend on the peo ple in the way of news and if very one will lend a hand and tell us who is visiting at their Iiome, or, who of their family is aroing away, we are sure of suc cess in a lively newspaper. We assure you we have charge of the newspaper and if jou will lend a band we can do much for you and your business nd most assuredly the town. W. U. Pylbs, Editor. Dairy Association Meeting.
