The Kossuth County Advance is still on the gold standard of giving 100 cents and more return for every dollar paid for subscriptions. For this reason the Kossuth County Advance has more subscribers than any other newspaper published in this territory. It is the policy of the Kossuth County Advance to continue to improve. Each week's issue is better than the preceding week, and each year marks some advance in the science of news reporting for Kossuth readers. Investigate carefully before you buy. It will make you big returns, and subscribers to the Advance receive more than full value from every dollar. ADVERTISING RETURNS DEPEND upon quality and quantity of the circulation of the newspaper. The Kossuth County Advance is proud of two things—the largest circulation in the county and the quality of its readers who pay for subscriptions. Throw-away circulation, either by bills or by free or gift measures, has little value. Unless the newspaper goes to a home where there is money an advertiser has no chance of realizing on his investment in advertising. That is the reason why paid circulation is important. The Kossuth Co. Advance is sold on its merits as a newspaper. It is not given away. There are no premiums of long "extra" periods.
