Tii.- publication of a newspaper I* not a productive Industry. A cewi-. paper is not eaten, worn, uaed for i fuel, building material or fur train ' variation purposee.

In function li t'ae distribution of Information Juol as teachers and . preachers, doctors and lawycrs-' none of whom are producer* as the word Is generally understood, are uni , versally recogniied as essential to civllited life, so the publication or a newspaper is equally regarded a-> an essential industry. A newspaper i ---- wonder what he thinks of me? 99 Another wounded soldier! Never have I noticed so many on tin* sheets as there seems to be today. I wonder why that chap gave me such a searching look? If he thinks I am a slacker he's wrong. I'm not able to fight; but I have done my duty. Here's my honor-button on my coat to prove it. I've bought ten Victory Bonds -put nearly all my savings into them. Not quite all-that hundred I have left must be kept to buy Christmas presents. Christmas presents ? I wonder if ibis would be th'* U-si way to spend that money. Let's sec; I could take that hunched dollars and pay it as a deposit on four $100 bo-uis -then pay the other $300 in instalments. But thai would leave me nothing to buy Christmas presents. I have it! 1 his year III give Victory Bonds as presents. But would the wife like that > Would she like a Bond as well as the gift I was going to buy her? Why she'd rather have a Bond, if she knew it mighl save one poor boy from being crippled like that lad there. And the three children, everyone of them has been at me to buy a bond. I could pay the other $300 in instalments-by being a little more careful of my expenditures. And ' the wife will gladly help. I'll do it. I'll take that hundred dollars to buy four more bonds. I wonder why I didn't think of that way before. Let every Canadian do some serious thinking along these lines today. You have only three days left to set yourself right with the boys who fought and toiled, suffered and died for you. Today may be the biggest day in your life. You've never known a day that compares with it in opportunity to serve your country, for this loan must be oversubscribed. Canada must show both friend and foe that she is in this fight to win. Buy VICTORY BONDS Isiurd by Canada's Victory Loan Committee, in co-operation with the Minister c,i finance of the Douuiioo of Canada. of paper was worth at> wrapping paper at points where such paper wab In j demand, in recent years the cost of i news print has been Increased from lime to time. As these Increases took , place it became necessary for pub-' Ushers to look to their subscription lists for a larger and larger share of their revenue. Hargain subscriptions became less frequent. Increases or regular rales were made from time to time. Deadheado were cut out. In various ways the effort was made to bring cost and earnings to more necr-ly a level than h�d been the custom iu the past. While cosl uf paper wuf going up die wage bill waa also increased, following the increase in the rust of living and the scarcity of help owing to large enlistments for military service from the printing trade. C;u tlid whole the changes in subscription rates and the economies effeuted stilt left tho newspaper publisher the loser ma result of war conditions. | For n time a limit was set on the i cost of newsprint by the Dominion | department of finance. This saved the [.situation in a.measure and for a time. I I'm on Oct. 10 the commissioner up-�eliiterl by -the minister of finance for K* purpose confirmed Ills decision, to raise tho price of newsprint from |2.SH to |;t.iiFi per 100 pounds. An Incrouso of somewhat over ilO pnr cent. Thin Inrroase not only takes effect trim tho date o'f tho decision, but It goes back to July I. for four months' supply of paper that the newspapers have bought and paid for ut the agreed upon price, and in turn have sold to their subscribers at tho still prevailing prices they must pay the Increased price. The nuwspuperH must puy 20 pef cent, more for their paper from July lusl while they. are tinder contract with iheir readers to supply them for periods up to one year at present subscript ion prices. The newspaper loses without recourse. It mutt stand tho wliole loss. To give subscribers tin Idea us to what the Increased cost is It may bo mentioned that the eatra charge on paper purchased and paid for in full by tho Hulletiu since July i Is $iJhii), and tlmt on a yoar'o sup-ply of paper to cover the Bulletin's proHoiit circulation the difference between the price of news print paper ut the new and Increased rate (or u yenr and the price up to May, 101G, is over jHe.lrfiii. Needless to say Hie business can- not stand It. The advertisers wilt aft stand It. The only thing to be dotts) is to pass It on to the subscriber, by Increasing the subscription rate at the earliest possible date. The newspaper publisher cannot do to ttioi subscriber what the finance department has allowed the paper tnQW to do ;o Him. He caunof charge an Increased auk-scriptton price on papora already pe|4 for up to a certain date.
