The Evening Telegram ceases to ap

In accordance .with Abraham. Lincoln's
wise -saying that you can fool, all the

"And he was right. The public also
can fool publishers all the, time andjad
vertisers can fool publishers some of
the time, but they seem to be continu

Evening Telegram doesn't propose. to be
fooled all the time
. "An up-to-date evening paper at 1
cent doesn't pay. Therefore those who
are oubllshlng evening papers at 1 cent
are either fooling" the public or fooling
themselves. . . - ?
; "As the Evening Telegram doesn't in
tend either to fool itself or fool the pub
lic, it has ceased publication until the
time becomes ripe when it can stop be
