The Brook reporter finds Condi i tons Are doubly hard on the Small country weekly As Well As the grocer or Farmer. Last week several Famera i decided the paper at Vas too i heavy a Burden to Bear and a topped the paper. Thi leads our dear Friend Marcus for Sinan to say a few Evite saws that fit our Case As a Ell As of Many others who found it absolutely necessary to raise the Price of the paper. Quot during the War we were Selling the paper at $1.50 and you or. Farmer was getting two and three prices for your produce buying. Autos tractors and everything you wanted and we bought your at the prevailing prices and never squealed. The newspaper helped fight the War without a cent from the government and a dead business in shop. These present taxes you pay did t come from any expense created by us but come from yourselves and what you sold your products for in both raw and manufactured materials. We get our share of the taxes without the added increase in value of our producing Stock since it is constantly depreciating Stock and material. During the War prices of paper advanced to three Hundred per cent and other printing supplies accordingly. After the War they went up another three Hundred per cent and Are still thirty five per cent above pre War prices. And you Don t think the publisher entitled to a part of the increase. Only a fraction of what you received during the War period. You can Stop the paper and take a City paper. It is always full of your town happenings and fights for the Farmer. It tells of your adversity and Prosperity in season and out. You can afford to kill your Home town paper but when you do and the paper a dead and the Railroad taken away from the elevators and Stock Yards then the liveliest spots in your Community will be the cemetery and the mausoleum. The Price of this paper is two dollars per year you can get a City paper a daily for $5 per year filled with murder arson adultery Highway assault and robbery and another one with refined adultery for $7, and if you prefer that one to the one that tells of your churches schools Homes Prosperity deaths and births. We say if you prefer the one with All the horrible details of divorce scandals that refers to the Farmer As Reube and Hay seed paints your face with Straw in your whiskers fights your interests at every turn then god help you and let you go y6ur Way. Stop this paper and relieve us of a Hope that some Farmer will come in some Day and Tell us that his Mother in Law is dead and will quot you kindly print this column obituary telling How we loved her quot free of course Why do it Quick and end the Hope and agony. But if you believe in a clean reflection of your Home Community Hap openings pay us two dollars As soon As it is due and our children As Well a yours will Call you honest. We know you Are hard up but we have not yet heard a Farmer who has sold his Auto or tractor to ease the tax Burden Only he saves by stopping his two Dollar Home paper.
