Important To Subscribers Notices have been sent out by The Des Molnes Register & Tribune that effective the middle of March, their yearly subscription price for the Register will be {6 per year, an increase of one dollar. This is due to an increase In the cost of newsprint of S5 per ton. The Algona Upper Des Moines is also paying an additional *5 per ton for newsprint, but we do not intend to raise our subscription price. However, in view of the added cost of paper, we do earnestly ask our subscribers to keep tab on their subscriptions, and renew as promptly as possible. Because of the high cost of paper, on our large and constantly growing subscription list we cannot carry subscribers longer than a month or so after their subscriptions expire, even if postal regulations would allow us to do so. We therefore hope renewals will continue to be prompt And our paper remains at $1.50 per year, or $2.30 for both the Advance and Upper Des Molnes. <» guest of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Moore at San Antonio, Texas. • • • Mrs. L. 3.
