Siec* December 27 we here
mailed oet letters te every ■ ab
ler, ber, whose name la on our
subscription book and whose
subscription Is not paid in ad
vance, aanoenelec the fact that
The Exchange is te be here
after a cash-ia-advance paper.
In short, the chaage means
thst wa are putting eur sub
scription business on n rash
basis and the paper will not be
sent to any one whose subscrip
tion is not paid in advance*
after this issue. *
It i« useless for us to giva the
why of this change. Wa sin
cerely hope that we may not be
mltundoretood ia any instance
and that our friends and eub
•eribere will land us their bfor
ty Co-operation in adopting and
making practicable the cask
"With malice toward none and
good will to all," ia the spirit
in which ws are working. It
it sirflfcly a business proposition
aad aa such, we have decided
to inaugurate the system and
stand or fall by tbs results.
We are proud of our subscrip
tion lists and, with a few pos
sible exceptions, we know ev
ery man whose name ia on oar
list Is as hsnaet aa a summer
day ia loag; aad there is hard
ly a man among them that wa
would net lead meaty all we
had if he needed it—aad treat
him to^ayj^ hack. But we
paper without tb ad
vance. Hot * era
afraid to credit him, bat be
en see we can not wait for the
money aad continue to publish
a newspaper.
Good aa thane folks are. whoee

Aad we are f arsed to tsho this

We most sincerely hope that
no one who received one of the
tetters will take it to boast aad
feel aggrieved. A few—a very
few—we have been told fool
this way about it. Bat, we
are glad to aar, ao one has
