We are about to publish a new wtx-kly. A magazine so difTerr-ut iu
purpose and scope and usefulness that people will wonder why it was not
published long ago. H seems to us that this great country of ours with nil
its forcefulness and enterprise ean afford to be constantly in touch with
itself. "We believe that we have discovered a way by which we can givo
the people something they very much want and something that they now
have no other way of getting. '
The unique feature of Kidgway's is, that it will be published from .
fourteen cities simultaneously every Saturday morning. How are we go
ing to do it! Well, here is our plan, and we think it will look as good to
you as it does to us. We shall maintain a complete organization in each
of the following centres where Hidgway's is published: New York, Chicago,
Philadelphia. Boston, San Francisco, Washington, New Orleans, Seattle, ,
Atlanta, Denver, Cleveland, St. Louis, Pittsburg, St. Paul and Minneapolis.
In each of the fourteen cities there will be a managing editor, with associate
editors, correspondents, special contributors, artists, advertising ami cir
culating managers. We intend with the aid of our editors all over the
country to get to the scene of evry important event at the earliest moment .
after it has happened. At midnight of the day preceding publication each
of the local editors will wire to New York a brief editorial story of the
events of his section that he believes will be of interest to the rest of the
country. In New York, editorial writers with Samuel Hopkins Adams in
charge, wil go over these stories, shape them up, being careful not to des
troy the local color, and wire three or four pages of finished editorials back
to each branch, thus the whole country will contribute to the national edi
torials. A few hours later Ridgway's will be on the presses in fourteen
. cities being printed at newspaper speed.
The local news and editorials will be treated just as thor-'
oughly by the local editor for his own section. We have secured
. the best man obtainable in his district, one who can reflect the
life of his section, in Business, Politics, Sports, Finance. Society
and Education, week in and out. There will be nothing but clean, .
crisp, up-to-date news that will keep wide-awake readers alive to 1
the big events that are happening around them.
What about stories and illustrations and general articles? We shall
have plenty of them. The best we can buy. We believe in humor and
every form of wholesome amusement. Nothing will be left undone to make
these features a great success with our readers. We shall seek contribu
tors everywhere. Ridgway's will undoubtedly make a great many' liter
ary reputations, just as Everybody's did. We are already able to announce
a great serial story by Joseph-Conrad, to be called "The Secret Agent."'
It will begin in the first issue. Mr.' Conrad has written sea stories that
have made him famous. In The Secret Agent he has entered a new field.
It is a story of European Diplomacy. The scene is laid in London, well
known as an asylum for European Anarchists. SA: storjof this" kind is
necessarily .full of action and fascination. The Secret Agent is especially no."
Gelett Burgess will conduct a department of humor, consisting of at
least four pages each issue, fully illustrated., It will be kept up-teAiate.
When you see the first number you will appreciate how good this depart
ment is. Mr. Burgess will have the aid of the" best artists and illustrators
at home and abroad. Another feature of the illustrations will be a sixteen
page section of half-tones printed on super paper depicting important
happenings, local an.d national. There will be weekly full-page cartoons,
true td the topic and the times.
Here are some of the contributors who are now at work for us:
Harvey J. O'lliggins
Ralph P. Paine
Eleanor Hoyt Brainerd
Dr. Henry C. Rowland '
CJeorge W. Ogden
One of the greatest features of Ridgway's will be the Washington .
Bureau, under'the direction of Martin Egan. We propose to tell you in
an interesting way, every week, just what each department of the national
. government is doing in your service. Mr. Egan will have a staff-of twelve
associate editors in order to cover every department of the government.'
There will be special representatives for the Senate, the House and the
Diplomatic Service. This Washington Bureau will make us better Ameri ;'
cans. We are all interested in our great big government, yet, how much do
we know about it! ,
What will be the policy of Ridgway's? principally to tell, ,
the truth and make the truth interesting. We shall not try to nifl' ' ' :
down or over anybody. We shall stand squarely on the platform, '
a militant weekly for God and Country. If we feel that any indi
vidual in the public eye is not getting a square deal, we may think
it wise to give him an opportunity to tell his own story. What
we want is facts; facts that are fresh in the making. If we give
- things as we find them, the average Amercian citizen can be trusted ' ,
to reach a very definite conclusion by the shortest possible route. ,.
Ridgway's will be on sale everywhere tomorrow morning. It will be a
G4-page weekly, and will be sold at 10c a copy or $5.00 a year. We advise
you to get your order in early because advance orders indicate a big de
mand, and we shall not print beyond immediate requirements. You can
buy Ridgway '8 in the same way. as your newspaper or magazine. It will
be'eold by the newsdealer and the newsboy, on the stand or in the street.
