NEVER ASSISTED A BIT-THE
NEWS LIVES JUST THE SAME
Ten years ago when the manager
of The News came to Jones and an-
nounced that a weekly paper would
be published here, parties came to us
and told us we could not do it, and
had better go to some other town.
These same parties never contributed
H cent toward the support of the pa-
per. They are gone, no one knows
where, but the News still lives
A few individuals say our daily
editions next week will not be a suc-
cess, but they will not contribute to-
ward helping it along. The News
says it will be a success, and only
asks our friends to wait and see.
This daily paper will he the great-
est advertisement this town, or any
other town ever had. Yon could not
find another anywhere in a town the
size of Jones, if you would hunt the

that purpose, and the members of
I the church and others will raise the
The parsonage will probably be
bnilt on lots in lnterurban addition.
This is something the church here
lias long needed, and we are glad to
see the start made.
