Did It Ever Occur to You.
Did it ever occur to you that
we had more than one thousand
readers that are more than one
year in arrears to The Tribune.
Did it ever occur to you that
it cost more than fifty dollars a
week to send the papers to
these homes every Friday ? One
dollar is certainly within the
reach of all. if not , as this is so
close to Thanksgiving and we
are thankful that we are alive ,
come in and tell us about it and
and we will receipt you for the
past year and send it next seas
on to give you an opportunity
to catch up in your finance .
We want no one who desires the
Tribune to be without it wheth
er he can pay it or not. but we
would like to have you call at
least once a year get acquainted
and take a receipt. It makes
our books look so much better
On the other hand we know
that there are numerous friends
of this paper who simply neg
lect to attend to the matter.
The other day one of these
friends called and after an apol
ogy for seeming neglect on his
part , insisted on paying nearly
two years in advance. This is
the other extreme for should the
entire family call some day and
do likewise , we might feel like
humming the tune"l'l | be back
in a minute , but I've got to go
now. " If you think we have
earned the dollar the past year
and have one to spare , we can
write you the prettiest receipt
you ever looked at. It's all up
