Last Saturday as William Jones, the

The supporting of a newspaper costs
a town scarcely a cent. Though papers
may be well patronized and the busi
ness men tuny spend sums of money In
advertising, the cash very ulckly nets
hack into the channel from which It
came. Nearly every cent a paper
gatheu in Is spent at homo and it goes
to the merchants who delight in bene,
tit t ing themselves nnd the community
by liberal advertising. Boiled down
the facts are that a newspaper returns
nil the money It gets to thosewhoglvo
it, and Its work for the town and
country Is thrown in as good will.
Advertisements are leallv news for
the housekeeper, business men. young
man nnd woman and often for the lxivs
and girls. They tell you where you can
get the licst to supply tho larder, to
furnls'i the home, to assist you In
business ami to make your person neat
and attractive and where you may save
a few dollars, for merchants buying In
larger lots some special class of goods
can lo uirc a lower rale and can there-
foroolTor ti sell them cheaper. Be
