A SEW UEl'AHTMENT.
With this issue of the RRPUB
UCAN we have installed a loca
editor. For some time we have
felt the need of some one to look
especially after the local news , a
we have had more than we couli
do well in looking after the busi
ness department , editorial work-
local news and job work. C. S
Osborne , who for a long time wa
foreman of the office , has accepte
the position of local editor ant
foreman of the job department
In both these lines Mr. Osborn
is experienced , and we feel confi
dent that we will be able to give
the public better service in all the
departments of the newspaper and
job work. With the additional
help we hope to merit a liberal
share of the public patronage in
our line of business , and with this
end in view we solicit your work.
We are prepared to give you lirst-
class service , whether in job worker
We have no desire to appear as
boasting , but in justice to our
patrons and friends we take pleas
ure in stating that through their
liberal patronage and assistance
the circulation of the REPUBLICAN
reached last month forty-nine
quires , and last week we found
our paper two quires short and
had to cut off all our outside ex
changes as well as a number of
our advertising patrons. We not
only have subscribers at nearly
every post office in the county ,
but at several of them we have
from thirty to sixty subscribers ,
outside of Broken Bow , where we
have over 300. This flattering
tate of affairs makes the RRPUB- |
ICAN the best medium of adver-
ising in Custer county , not only
) ecause of the large number of
eaders , but because the paper
caches them the same week it is
saued and is read when the news
n it is news. As an illustration
of the splendid service we are giy-
ng the public just came to our
notice Tuesday. Jas. Chittick ,
vho lives at Etna , stated that
since we have been issuing the
niper Thursday afternoon in time
o get it in-the mail for the 11:44 :
train that the REPUBLICAN
reaches him the next clay going
> y way of Grand Island and
It shall be our constant en
deavor in the future to improve
our service in every way possible
'or the benefit of the public.
