It is understood that Deputy Marshal Jo a Millikan, the wag of the Federal building, wishes it dis tinctly understood that if, as is currently predicted, the next repub lican state convention is to be held in the penitentiary, he is in uo sense a candidate for the place of delegate and that if chosen he will positively refuse to serve. Greensboro Tele gram. To Advertiser. 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 all of which necessarily increEBM expenses. Hence this article notifying cur advertisers that after March let, 1906, the advertising rate is as iol low8: Per inch one time 25c " " month 20c " " two months 17c " " three " and over 15c 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 tronage accorded it in the past and nledges every effort, to give value i received for future busines placed ' with us. Our Big Clubbing Offer.
