The Courier has spent large
sums of money in working up its
circulation and to-ilay it thoroughly
covers Randolph and adjoining
counties besides having a large list
throughout this and other states.
But we are working to build up
Randolph county and the Piedmont
section of North Carolina.
To this end we have built our
circulation, that our advertisers and
the community might secure the
greater publicity. We improved
our plant and enlarged xut paper

Reading notices will be charged
at the rate of one cent per word.
All bills payable monthly.
Our circulation is not made up of
dead heads and exchanges, but pay
ing subscribers, who send us the
cash for their subscription. Few
are more than six months in arrears
and many are paid in advance.
This shows that we circulate among
a prosperous people the class that
advertisers desire to reach.
The Courier appreciates the pa

I am so worn and weary with this life;
Take, thou, my shield.
Defeat is better than unending strife;
Come, thou, I yield.
Victorious wreaths, upon your panting breast
You may unroll;
For me, the vanquissd, life hath lost its zest,
And seeks no goal
But, hold! I shall net so in battle fail.
Once more the helm
I firmly grasp and furl defiant sail!
Unto that realm
Where heroes bide I point my vessel's prow;
And though I fall
Before I win the coast, I yield not now,
Nor yield at all!
