ASKS SUBSCRIBERS' PROMPT RENEWALS The heaviest proportion of yearly subscription renewals t& this paper occur from January first through to March first. Notice of pending expiration of subscription is sent to the sub* scribel' about two weeks before his subscription expires. The week it expires, if renewal has not been made, he will receive a postal card notice to that effect. If renewal is not made then, the paper stops. Because of current paper restrictions, plus the fact that membership in the Audit Bureau of Circulations compels it, no subscriptions are carried beyond expiration by this paper. To insure not missing any copies, and to save us added book- work, prompt renewals will .be appreciated. Postage paid envelopes are provided in the first notice of expiration for this purpose. All you have to do is enclose the signed check for the correct amount ($2.50 for one paper, $4 for both, in Kossuth county, or $3.00 for one or $5 for both outside the first postal zone), in the envelope, deposit in a mail box, and Uncle Sam will do the rest.
