A Word to Our Patrons.
We know that we are giving
you one of the best local weekly
papers published in this or any
other section, and we know that
you appreciate our efforts. But
expenses must be met, and when
we tell you that, owing to the
increased price of paper our
margin on your paper, before we
print itr amounts to less than
twenty-five cents for the entire
year, we ieei sure tnat you need
no further insistence upon our
part to assure your paying up
Washington County and the
people in it were never in as
good financial condition as now.
No one is too poor to take and
pay for his county paper, and he
owes it to himself and his family
to do this. .
What would you and outsiders
think of Washington County if
it had no paper in it ? And yet
this must happen unless you do
your full part by it.
We are trying to keep the pa
per going to you at the same old
price while you are getting fancy
prices for what you have to sell,
but we cannot hold out unless
every dollar due us is kept paid
We are sure that this state
ment of fact is all that is neces
sary upon our part, and that you
will do the rest.

of twenty-one years, and cast
his lot with our people, since
which time he has gained a most
enviable reputation among the
legal fraternity of this entire
section, and built up a law prac
tice that has excited the wonder
and admiration of older and more
No man ever gained more or
closer triends within so snort a
time, and it is with most sincere
regret of our people that, owing
to threatened pulmonary trouble

of the Middle-West.
Mr. and Mrs. Bond were ac
companied on their loner trip by
Mrs. Bond's father, Dr. J. H.
