We regret to inform our readers that beginning today and continuing for probably three days, the News will not be the kind of paper we have been giving you, nor the kind of paper we are preparing to give you in the future. In conformity with the plans of the new management to give you a seven column, eight page paper permanently on or about June 1st it is necessary to place some new machinery and tear down and overhaul some that we have. Among this is the big press which prints the News, necessitating the use of the press of the Star-Demo- crat, for which we are under lasting obligations to the big hearted editor of that paper. We ask our readers, therefore, to put up with a “bum” paper for the period of time necessary for us to get in shape for bigger things in the future, and we feel that with this explanation they will be glad to do so. We thank you for your forbearance for the next three or four days. T $ MAY SALE The economical buyer will not miss this opportunity to purchase the things needed during this special event.
