Here is the Question
Will the people of Jasper and vicinity
buy classy high grade Christmas Goods of
the home merchants or will they prefer to go
to the neighboring cities We believe they
will favor the home merchant if he offers them
the same identical designs and quality that
they find in the best shops of our large cities
Acting on our faith we have purchased a few
of our best and most up-to-date articles on
the market which we offer you at appreciably
better prices than the city shops can afford to
sell If we have misplaced our confidence we
alone are the loosers
Jasper Hardware Co
3 C
Advertising Rates Higher
Again we are forced to the admis
sion that our advertising rates are
too low as compared to rising costs of
white paper and other printiug ma
terials as well as labor This announce
ment should not make necessary any
great amount of explanation to our ad
vcrtiscrsbecausc they are all business
people of experience and well versed in
prices of commodities along all lines
Printing materials like all other
manufactured and most raw articles
have reached the highest level ever
known Printing establishments big
and little are feeling the efTccls of it
and some arc closing there doors and
going out of business to avoid the
struggle As long as we can get paper
and other stock we propose to continue
the business This is an essential busi
ness in any progressive community
and the men behind it are entitled to
a living wage If we are denied the
latter we can get jobs in other print
ing places that will pay fair wages for
7 or 8 hours work and rid us of a lot of
responsibility we now have to carry
However we believe we arc going to
stick around and we claim the right
that every business man enjoys to
charge a living wage over and above
cost of operation
The following new scale qf advertis
ing rates go into eilect January 1 1020
Front page advertising 20 cents per
column inch each Insertion
Advertising on all other pages 15
cents per column inch
3 C
3 C
1 D
A special sliding scale to regular ad
vertises when taking 45 inches or more
All advertising reading notices will
be charged for at the rale of 5 cents
per line and no ad taken for less than
25 cents
Ordinary cards of thanks 50 cents
All notices for churches and schools
such as pie supper and dinner an
nouncements will be charged for at
the regular rate of 5 cents per line
They Still Have an Excuie
The change in train service put Char
ley Covert and Walt Dodd on the anx
ious seat a little while Monday until
it was found out that Mr KIrby would
bring the Evening Press up from Car
thagc every evening about 7 oclock
and thus furnish the boys an excuse to
come down town after supper All
subscribers to the Evening Press will
find their papers at Browns Cafe about
7 oclock as long as there is no evening
train from the south
Overruled but
Clarence Brown C S Andrews Dan
Magers ond Verlle Wheeler returned
Inst Friday from their trip to Taney
County for turkeys They brought no
turkeys home not even a cottontail
They report very wet weather all the
way and both ways Just as they got
their turkeys located and their plans
laid they had to start back for fear the
roads would become impassable
Therefore the motion previously put
and unanimously carried to have a
turkey dinner wus overruled
But one or more of our customers requests
some Special Service We highly appreciate
this friendly attitude for it allows us to
express in action our constant aim
To Serve You in a Friendly Way
If we can be of service to you at any time
command us either in person or by phone
