E1 RAtSTOX, Agent \ Phone 375 lola^XanBas That is what lola merchants are getting these days when they advertise in the Register. A careful and accurate survey of the city, Qompleted May 2, 1926 reveals thesfe remarlmble figures: Total^ City Cireulatioii of the Register. . 2269^ Families in lola not talcing tlie iBlegister.. 71 > ... . V 96.97 Pereentage of Coverage In determining; the total number of families, in lola hof Talcing" the Register, a house to house survey was made which showed that the paper is delivered to all but 320 houses. But 144 of these houses are empty, and there are 105 papers delivered to stores and offices on the Public Square. It is, of course, proper vto deduct the 144 empty houses, which would 16ave only 176 occupied houses to which the Register is not delivered. But 105 of these houses, it is ; fair to infer, are occupied by families of busi- \ ness and prof essional men who have the Register delivered to them up town and take it home with them when th^ey go. Of course there are a few such men who take the paper up town and at their homes also, but to offset that there are a number of people who, do not take the Register because they borrow it from a next door relative or friend. ' The Regrister feels justified, therefore, in claiming' that there are not more than 71 families in lola that do not see the Re^ster every day in the i week—and it takes considerable pride in making- that claim i because there is probably npt another newspaper in Kansas today that can boast so good a record. These 71 iamilies represent 3.03. per cent of the number of families in town—and it is no reflection upon anybody to call attention to the fact that the buying power of these 71 families pi-obably dojBS not exceed that of 5 or 10 normally well-, to-do families. Most of them do npt take the Register simply because they .are too poor to iafford the 15 cents a week or else beca.use'they do not read. So far as puil-chasing power is concerned, the Register feels that it can justifiably claim that it reaches every home in lola. BIG COVERAGI means BIG RESULTS The Register Supplies the the RESULTS
