A TOWN WITH NO NEWSPAPER
What would your town be if your newspaper should go out of business? It would soon be known as a city of the dead. It would grow backward so fast that in a short while your streets would be a good grazing place for cattle and the only traffic who were moving away or those pass you would have would be the peopling thru from one live city to another. Newspapers are modern builders of cities as well. As they progress so will the home city progress. It is money in your pockets to see them grow, for the better they are the better your city will be.
