Is there a person in Livingston county who^-will say that The Constitution is not worth $2.50 per year? We believe not.- Any reasonable person, who will take time enough to investigate the matter, will acknowledge that-$2.50 is not enough. And really it isn't. Practically every other daily newspaper in'the United States is getting: a larger price. But the newspapers of Chillicothe are making a desperate effort to maintain; a high .ratirtg in the newspaper field at .-t cost as low as possible to our Subscribers. Those are,absolute facts which can beproven and will be proven to anyone unsatisfied., . ' . . , ' Then you grin and a'sk: "Well, why are you only charging $2.50 then?" The reason is this: We want our subscribers in arrears to PAY UP and we believe with a little reasoning and inducement they will 'lo so. Therefore we are making this offer of $2.50 for a Jimited time. Yau're right! We absolutely cannot make this rate hereafter and live. We must have our regular subscription price- of $3.00 if we are. to continue to publish. · · You don't quit eating bread because flour has gone so high that a loaf of 'bread must sell, for lOc, do you? .

One or two subscribers have informed us that they don't care to continue their paper as they could not stand'the raise.'Nothing is more ridiculous. $2.50 is the price, until November 18th and THIS IS BELOW OUR -REGULAR RATE. We have not yet aske,d-onr subscribers to stand a raise. What is more reasonable than a daily newspaper, carrying all of the latest war, political; foreign, national, state news, all of the former received over an expensive leased wire daily---and each day giving you a complete stock, grain, poultry and hide market, besides the many other advantages of a daily newspaper .for OVER 300 DAYS IN THE YEAH FOR ONLY $2.50 ? ... . -; formerly occupied by Dr. W.
