GREETING We have no apology to offer to the public for the publication of the Daily News. We hope to serve a good pur pose and meet with the approval and support of the people generally. If you think Prescott ought not to have a daily, we trust you will not withhold your support on that ground alone. The remarkable success of the Weekly News encourages us to make this ven ture. Under modern conditions there is a growing demand among the peo ple for not only a daily paper, but a local daily paper. The people want to know what is doing every day. Our mission is to serve the interests of Prescott and surrounding country. - We expect to publish the news and add features from time to time which will be of interest every day in the year. We believe as tne days go by, the province of the local daily paper will become well delined and duly appreciated. We ask your assistance to accomplish good. OUR ADVERTISERS. We respectfully call the attention of our readers to our advertisers in this issue. As a matter of course, without their encouragement, we would not un dertake the publication of a daily pa per. No paper, especially a local pa per, could exist without advertising. It is not a one-sided thing, however, and while the advertising helps the paper, it also helps the advertiser. The merchant or business man who insists that advertising does not pay must have overlooked the success of the great advertisers of the country. You have noticed that the merchants who advertise are the largest and best merchants in the country. Read the advertisements in this issue, are they not leaders in their line of business? We respectfully ask that you give them a large share of your business. Among the things which Prescott ought to have is a municiptl improve ment society. There are dozens of little things about town which ought to be done. The city council either overlooks them or has too much else to look after. The business men are al ways engaged and consequently many things of importance in municipal im provement are left undone. Yesterday was a fine day. It would SPRING TIME with its birds and flowers and thoughts of love, also means new purchases for the season. We have exactly what you want in Dress Goods, Laces, Embroideries, Furnishings, Clothing, Notions, Corsets, Hats and Shoes. HAVE YOU SEEN OUR STOCK? WM. GEE & SON. have made a good Easter. Did you no tice the crowds who sought the seats and restful retreats of our beautiful city paik? Who in Prescott is not proud of our park. It is gratifying to note the interest which Prescott people have already taken in tree planting, since the side walk building began. It is a work of beauty, usefulness and permanency. We could have begun the publication of the daily one week ago, but as it was the first day of April, too many people may have said things about us. Scripture Reading for Today. James i: 27. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and the widows in their af flintion and to keep himself unspotted from t he world. Charwoman (mending carpet)—1 never thought as ’ow I should come tc this, mum. Me that was that well eddicated that afore I was married 1 couldn’t even make a beef pudden.— Punch. A Juror's View—The defendant in a murder trial goes through a terrible ordeal, doesn't he? "I suppose so,” said the ex-juror, wearily, "but he has one advantage over us. He’s pre sumed to be innocent until proved guilty.”—Philadelphia Public Ledger, "Why do you fear to become a re former?” “Because," answered Sena tor Sorghum, "the way of the reform er is easy only so long as he is telling people what they ought to have. It becomes difficult when it is time to apologize for not giving it to them." —Washington Star. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. A woman has a real good time shop ping unless she buys something. There would be a heap of virtue in the world if there was more fun in it. A man can break out of jail, but he's got to die to get over having a big nose. A man has to be mighty amiable to laugh at a joke he was going to get off hunselt when the chance came. It is Time to discard your winter clothing and buy a. Spring Suit. We have the nobbiest line in the city. Orders taken for tailor made goods. It’s not the price but the quality that con stltutes a bargain. J. B. JORDAN Peacock Flour. LITTLE PRESCOTT LAWS Sec. 120.
