The bordering towns where the $1.50 net rate will apply the same as in Kossuth towns are Elmore, Armstrong, CRingsted, Cylinder, West Bend, Bode, Ottosen, CLlvermore, Corwith, Hutchlns, Brltt, Woden, Buffalo Center and (Rake. To points farther away the rate will remain at $2.50 net. Ever since war time the newspapers have had to pay heavy postage on papers going to points outside the county. , There is one string to this reduction, tout it doesn't cost the subscriber a penny, nor does it affect the net reduction In any .way. It .is just a means : in these parlous "times-', of boosting trade a little. Fifty ,Ccnt Check Ketnrnca. Subscribers'will pay the little old $2 subscription price just as they have'always done. The only difference is..that each arid every subscriber will get back a check for 50c good in trade at'any office, store, or shop in Kossuth county or any of the' othei- towns named atoove. This is a form of the trade scrip scheme now popular In many middle-western 'communities "ae'^'a means ,of stimulating trade for the advantage of everybody. '. The-check cannot toe taken direct to a bank and cashed-, lit must first, be spent for something at an office, store, or shop. After that it is just like any other check. The etore or shop which gets it :can toank .It the same as any other .check. . -, ; It will not matter what the check-' is spent for, just so.it is spent with- in the designated territory for goods or services that people have to buy anyway every day. It can toe spent for groceries, meat, clothing, -professional men's fees, anything and everything that any other check is spent for. Payment May Be by Mall. . Subscribers do not have' to come to the Advance office to make payment. They can pay by mail, and checks will be mailed toack. There is no time limit on spending the checks. They will toe good whenever they are presented. . ' This plan will be in effect from now throughout 1933, Subscribers do not have to rush, to take advantage of it. They can'..pay at their usual time anytime toefore January 1 a year from now and get the -5Oc check back. Subscribers who are in arrears will get a. 50c. check toack for every year they are behind. • . The idea behind this scheme'. ,1s just this: . .,•••: What we need, in this country just now is not more money tout more and faster circulation of what we have. There is actually about a. billion..dollars more money outside the nationaljreasury today than, there was in the 1929 tooom. The tropble is, it .isn't moving. It is Just, lying uselessly in hanks or hoarded. What all, of us .need to do is to take advantage of every means of stimulating circulation, lor all of us will benefit.' The Advance will do its part with this 1 ' subscription scrip plan: 'The check will- serve like money and .help a little'towards the revival of trade on-which the return' :o normal times 1 depends.". .'. •.. : FALKENHAINER Civic Leader Struck Down at His Home Tuesday Night. , Never was the Algona community more startled and shocked than on..
