Against these local preferences, it was added, the house block insisted upon; using limestone to construct the build- ings. An entirely different story was told by the limestone Interests.

Gotttcra wMa ?oalei? appeal Blot GAIN we repeat, what good is a waste basket circulation? What good are a million subscribers if the i newspaper isnt read? Publications the world over would gladly give away subscriptions to gain a large circulation if advertisers would stand for it. But experienced advertisers know that a subscriber is not a reader unless he wants the publication and Is willing to pay for it. For if the newspaper isnt read the advertisement isnt even seen. The Daily News-Banner does, and has always, run on a paid in advance basis. - Its subscribers pay $3.00 and $5.00 a vear for it. Tliev wait for it, they rely on if, read and re-read it, and often ( we have found) pass it along to a non-subscribing neighbor. To our readers we are selling news and not a baby show. We feel the obligation of a newspaper. We sell our efforts to the reader and get a fair price for it. Our theory is that Rutherford County deserves a newspaper. Our bought and paid for circulation proves it. - And a seventy-one per cent increase in advertising lideage in the short space of a year is impressive evidence of what the advertisers have found out.
