A PLAIN STATEMENT.
What would yon think of a farmor
who had raised thousand bushels of
wheat, and who should sell if to a
thousand different persons, scattered
all over the State, and agree to wait a
year for his par fiom each of them,
and if one half of them did not pay
at tha end of the year, he h tild give
them another bushel, and agree to
wait another year for hia pay, and
thnssmon rear after rear! How
long weald such a farmer
bankruptcrl Probably not very
much longer than publishers of news
papers who follow such a practice
costs the editor of a newspaper mm e
than doable aa much to supply a
thousand subscribers for one year M
it coats a fanner to raise a thousand
bushels of wheat. The farmer sells
his grain in balk. Newspapers are
sola to a thousand different parsons
liriag in different places, and ha
must wait until tha end of the year
before he can ret Darment. and h
dependa wholly upon the honesty and
the responsibility of the subscribers.
