Why produce an eight Page newspaper like the her Ald times with the scant support you Are getting from the business men of the he replied. I have gone from one end to the other of the three car diff and noted the business firms of one kind or another and a careful inspection of your paper shows Only a few of them represented in its advertising columns. This is a most unthinkable. I have always found that business men Are the ones who complain most about Money going out of the town. That is natural of course and it is hard to blame them. But unless they do some thing to keep it in town what right have they to complain the same conditions used to exist in Renyi town but the Busi Ness men awoke to the fact that the Money our people were spending elsewhere went to firms that advertised and they began to fight fire with fire. They reasoned that if Advertis ing helped the other fellow it ought to help them. Many of them regularly set apart a certain percentage of their Gross sales for advertising purposes. Since they started doing this their sales have greatly increased which shows that at least a Good share of the Money which formerly went some where else is now being spent at Home.

If you can get the citizens of this Community and the business men in particular to realize what a contribution the paper is1 making week by week to the Well being of the All of its interests and a that it cannot continue without financial sup port you will have gone a Long Way in the right direction self respecting people Don t want Charity if they can help it and to accept the benefits of a newspaper without adequately supporting it is too much like taking Charity. When they once see the matter in this Light and realize How much they can Benefit by advertising there will be a new Day for the As he picked up his hat and left the office i said to my self is a serious matter and1 what this Man has said is so vital to the interest and welfare of the communities we serve that it ought to be and so Here it is.
