This will cut off all who never intend
to pay for a newspaper , thus reducing
the surplus mail anil carrying to Uncic
Sam. Publishers of newspapers who

prjved of pound rates and they cannot *
afford to send their papers through the
mails atlugher rate of postage , All
subscriptions will be discontmusd who
fail to pay in advance.
Cnsli in Advance
A recent ruling of the post office of
ficials in regard to the circulation of
newspapers assecond class matter
through the mails compels a newspa
per to have a paid circulation to secure
those rates. In view of these facts we
are compelled to ask our subscribers to
pay up. in advan ce and after January 1
ill accounts of the DBMOQRAT must be
paid and subscriptions will be cash in
idvance. Jt is not our choice but we
must ask for cash. Do not take of
fence but pay the small
