We have resolved upon running
our little business as near as possible
on a cash basis, because we believe
it is the only true busiri3s principle
and 'c believe such a course will j;ivo
mpregeueral satisfaction, and we know
from experience that it ii the safest,
and while we dont object to accommoda
ting a man for a rhcrt lime we certain
ly do ol ject to doing a credit business.
So please understand that what we
do must be .cash as we pay Wish for
our paper etc. and cannot afford to
trust it out. We have lost $50o in
the last year by doimj a credit hu.-iuess
find it is flin last ninnpv i-r infrnrl in
lose in that way, so do not be offended
at this notice if you should happen to
be a little
in arrears lor your paper
but make it a point to pay a little in
advance as soon as you can and keep
ir so. wc don't want to lose a ing!e
subscriber from our list as wc take
seme pride in the fact that we h ve
as large a circulation a any othci pa

that we have a large bundle of paper
to buy each week to step ply our cus
tomers is the reason that we have to
have our pay promptly else wc would

we believe in this motto:
