Circulation Ratings. 

While the annual revision of the AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY 
is in progress, every publisher of a periodical is afforded an opportunity to place 
on file at the Directory office a true statement of his actual issues for the preced- 
ing year. If he prefers a report that is more easily prepared, he is permitted to 
file a true statement of what has been his smallest issue within the year. 

If such a report, duly signed and dated, is received (before January 15th), the 
paper is in every case rated in accordance with its detailed statements, in plain 
figures, preceded by the words in italics, actual average for the past year or smallest 
edition issued within a year, as the publisher may have indicated. To be correctly 
rated costs no publisher anything ; all that he has to do is to know how many 
copies he prints ; state the facts and sign and date the statement. A reward of 
$25 is at any time at the disposal of any publisher who proves that a true report 
of either of the two sorts indicated above was furnished (before January 15th), 
and was not accepted and adopted. Statements of average circulations, being 
liable to be based upon erroneous information, are not accepted as satisfactory

As advertisers nav^ •'^ interest intnowing the circulation of papers in which 
no advertisements art erted, such papers are not accorded a circulation rating. 
Circulation ratings are ^ so omitted in the case of publications not catalogued in 
the Directory for last year ; the reason for this last omission being that there has 
not yet been time sufficient to enable the circulation to become established. 

**♦♦ NOTE:— Following Is a complete list of rewards paid for tiie discovery of un- 
truthful ratings in the Directory, which were given upon the publisher's detailed state- 
ment and therefore guaranteed to be correct : In 1888, Waukegan (111.) Gazette. In 1889, 
Madison (Wis.) Skandinavisk Tribune. In 1891, Prospect (Ohio) Advance. In 1892, St. Louis 
(Mo.) Anzeiger des Westens, Atlanta (Ga.) Dixie Doctor, San Francisco (Cal.^ Call. In 1893,

PREFACE. 

The x\merican Newspaper Directory for 1869 was 
the first publication to give a complete list of newspapers 
published in the United States and Canada, together with 
circulation ratings. This volume was so eagerly welcomed 
that its publishers were confirmed in their determination to 
issue the book annually, in order to chronicle the many changes 
so constantly occurring in the newspaper world, and regu- 
larly, therefore, for twenty-seven years the American News- 
paper Directory has appeared. Each year, it is believed, 
through the experience of its compilers and additional means 
of gaining information, it has become more accurate and 
trustworthy, so that its acknowledged position as the standard 
authority on American newspaper statistics has been fully 
maintained from the outset. As an instance of the value of 
such a work it is stated in the preface to the first edition that 
single copies of a list of newspapers, published in the Southern 
States alone and prepared with considerable accuracy, had been 
sold to advertisers for one hundred and fifty dollars. 

CIRCULATION. 

The circulation ratings accorded in this book represent 
the average issue of the publication for the year preceding the 
date of the report. Practically they represent the average issue 
for the year 1894. Ratings stated in figures, or by a letter fol- 
lowed by one asterisk, are, in all cases, based upon a report 
furnished by the publisher. Such ratings are absolutely relia- 
ble. The publishers of the American Newspaper Direct- 
ory will pay a reward of $100 for each and every case 
where it shall be proved that a paper rated in figures, or by a 
letter followed by one asterisk, was not entitled to the rating 
accorded. 

guaranteed ratings. 
To be correctly rated in the American Newspaper Di- 
rectory it is only necessary for a publisher to know what his 



PREFACE. 



edition has been for a year preceding the date of his report, 
be willing to set forth the facts as they were, date the statement 
and sign it with a pen. Every such report, delivered to the 
publishers of the American Newspaper Directory, is ac- 
cepted, believed, and the paper rated in accordance. A 
reward of $25 is at the service of any and every publisher who 
proves that he handed in such a report and that it was not be- 
lieved, accepted, and his paper accorded the circulation rating 
established by the statement. 

REPORTS received. 

During the compilation of the present issue a report of 
some kind was received from 12,505 publications, considerably 
more than one-half of the entire number published — a much 
larger percentage than ever before. Each of the remaining 
publications, catalogued in full, was either seen and examined 
or otherwise believed to be still in existence. Reports from 
4,459 publications gave actual circulation figures covering 
the full year preceding, and each one of these is rated in 
Arabic figures in accordance with the report, the correctness 
of such figures being guaranteed under a forfeiture of $100. 
It is gratifying to note that these guaranteed ratings increase 
in number each year. Formerly only one report in twenty 
was of this kind; now it is one in three, and one in five of the en- 
tire number of newspapers published. Reports from 5,687 were 
not sufficiently definite to enable the editor (after correspond- 
ence with the publishers) to arrive at the exact issues for a year, 
and the circulation in each of these cases is indicated by a 
rating letter followed by two stars, as explained in the Key, to 
be found on inside page of first cover. These circulations are 
not guaranteed. 

THE INTERROGATION POINT. 

Newspapers which appeared in the Directory for 1894, but 
concerning which, after repeated attempts, no information could 
be obtained, are entered by name and frequency of issue, fol- 
lowed by an interrogation point. 

publishers' STATEMENTS. 

In the present Directory a valuable feature has been ad- 
mitted, giving publishers an opportunity to state, in their own 
words and on their own responsibility, whatever they may have 
to say about their publications, immediately following the tech- 
nical description of their papers. All such notices are preceded 



PREFACE. 



by the word '* Advertisement." Not very long ago an offer of 
five thousand dollars was made by a New York publisher for a 
similar notice, and refused at the office of the Directory. The 
privilege is now granted to all publishers alike for a nominal 
sum. 

NUMBER OF NEWSPAPERS. 

In 1894 the Directory catalogued 20, [69 newspapers. Of 
these 2,133 have since died, leaving 18,036. The present Direct- 
ory contains 20,395 newspapers, 2,359 o^ which are new or 
appear for the fitst time. 

It is interesting to note the yearly changes in the number of 
newspapers catalogued in the annual editions, as shown in the

In 1869, Kansas had 69 newspapers, Colorado 16 and Den- 
ver a population of 6,000. Only 83 newspapers then claimed a 
circulation of as much as 20,000, and the total number of 
agricultural publications was 67. 



The Annual Revision. 



Just as soon as the first complete set 
of the sheets of the American Newspa- 
per Directory for 1895 is received from 
the binders, the leaves will be sepa- 
rated and each separate half page or 
column will be pasted on a full page of 



graphic process. These corrections 
would appear much more conspicuously 
on the sheet were it not the practice to 
set descriptions of new papers in type 
and then attach the printed instead of 
manuscript copy.

mammoth blank books prepared for 
the purpose. These pages are in- 
tended to afford ample room for mak- 
ing all needed corrections, and the 
work of revision of the Directory for 
the next issue (1896) immediately be- 
gins. Many people find it difficult to 
realize that there is a necessity for an 
annual revision of such a book. For 
the edification of these people, a half 
page of the 1894 vohime, pasted on a 
sheet taken from one of the great blank 
books above referred to, is here repro- 
duced, having been reduced by plioto- 



A glance at the fac-simile enables 
one to realize the enormous amount of 
labor, time, care and attention to de- 
tail that are involved in revising such a 
book, and the absolute need that the 
revision shall be performed at least as 
often as once a year. It will be no- 
ticed that in the half page of reports, 
four papers are shown to have gone 
out of existence and that their places 
have been made more than good by 
eight new publications. Only five re- 
ports in the entire half page of ratings 
fail to receive some sort of a revision. 



THE ANNUAL REVISION. 



9 



Of the papers which are not dead, 
some have changed editors, others tlie 
publication day or frequency of issue. 
One paper has clianged its name, an- 
other its post-oftice address, another 
its size, another its publisher and an- 
other its subscription price. All these 
changes must be recorded, and when it 
is remembered tliat the Directory con- 
tains more than twelve hundied and 
sixty pages and deals with more than 
twenty thousand papers, the amount of 
labor involved in revising the entire 
volume can be realized. It is necessary 
for an advertiser to keep himself in- 
formed of the various changes noted by 
the Director)', and it is not hard to un- 
derstand, therefore, why it is that the 
most successful advertisers are never 
without a copy of the current issue 
close at hand. 

As soon as a new edition of the 
American Newspaper Directory is dis- 
tributed, its publishers receive nu- 
merous communications and inquiries 
which require answers prepared with 
care, and going more into details than 
would be possible in a letter. It was 
with a view of attending fully to tliese 
that the following information has been 
compiled. 

Tliis information should be care- 
fully considered by every person at- 
tempting to pass criticism upon the 
methods and rules adopted for the an- 
nual revision of the Directory. They 
are the result of twenty-seven years of 
painstaking experiment. It has from 
time to time been the practice to sub- 
mit these rules to the inspection of the 
principal officers of the various associ- 
ations of Editors and Publishers, of 
which there are so many of local. 
State or National importance. They 
have been requested to criticise the 
plan of publication : and whenever a 
suggestion has been concurred in to 
any considerable degree, it has been 
adopted. The same careful considera- 
tion and criticism is invited from the 
advertising public, and from all who 
have occasion to make use of the 
American Newspaper Directory. 

The only point upon which the 
Directory appears to be open to much 
criticism is its statements and esti- 
mates of the circulation of the various 
newspapers catalogued. 

In order that these niav be con- 
sidered understandingly, it is neces- 
sary to carefully keep in mind these 
facts here set down: 



FIRST. 

The Directory was issued in June, 
1895. 

SI'XOND. 

The circulation ratings accorded are 
not the editions that the paper is now 
printing, but represent the actual 
issues for the entire year 1894. 

THIRD. 

If the circulation is not expressed 
in Arabic figures, or by a rating letter, 
marked with one asterisk [only one (*) ], 
its accuracy is not guaranteed. The 
actual issue may have been more, and 
may not have been as much as indi- 
cated by the rating letter accorded. 



RULES. 

WHAT PAPERS TO CATALOGUE. 

The Directory is intended to contain a com- 
plete catalogue of all newspapers published, 
and neither the name nor the circulation rat- 
ing of a paper can be omitted in response to a 
request to that effect. Compliance with such 
a request would be a consent to make the 
Directory less than complete. 

The names ot new newspapers are ob- 
tained principally from the list of periodicals 
entered as second-class matter at the Post- 
Office Department at Washington, but to 
some extent also from postmasters and pub- 
lishers. To obtain copies of these new news- 
papers a special post-paid wrapper is mailed 
to each. All so received are entered and de- 
scribed on cards prepared for that purpose, 
but no new newspaper is entered in the Di- 
rectory unless a copy is at hand bearing a 
date later than the preceding November. 

Unless there are strong reasons to the con- 
trary, the name of a publication that is not 
admitted to the United States mails as second- 
class matter is not entered in the Director}'. 
And under the same restrictions, any pub- 
lication admitted as second-class mail matter 
is generally considered as entitled to be en- 
tered in the Directory. 

The object in publishing the Directory is 
to make an actual catalogue of the legitimate 
press. It is desirable that publications of 
ephemeral character, such as are not legiti- 
mate periodicals in fact, shall not have a 
place in it. In order that some rule may ob- 
tain by which it can be decided whether a 
paper shall be catalogued or not, the follow- 
ing is adopted : Rule. — If in doubt whether 
a publication shall be included or excluded, 
always exclude it. 

That feature which formerly led to cata- 
loguing, under one paper, the namesof other 
publications issued by the same publisher has 
been discontinued. 

In cases where a paper is dated from two 
places, it is catalogued under the one where 
it is entered as second-class matter ; but niay 
be described as "dated also at" (naming 
the other city or town). 

When one or more editions of a newspaper 
are issued for another town or village, after 
the word " publisher " in the catalogue the 



10 



THE ANNUAL REVISION. 



words " prints an edition for " [naming town], 
or " prints special editions for neighboiing 
towns" shall be added, and the circulation 
rating in such cases shall read " combined 
circulation." No other mention of the extra 
" editions " is made. 



An examination of the office files is made 
for a copy of each paper that fails to make 
response to the application for information. 
Such as are found are examined and noted. 
To such as are not found, a wrapper for a 
sample copy is mailed, in a " special request " 
envelope, and if no copy or information is 
obtained before February ist, and there is no 
other ground for believing that the paper is 
still in existence, that paper is catalogued by 
name merely, followed by an interrogation 
point to indicate that its present existence is 
doubtful. Such papers are omitted from all 
county and class lists. 



ABOUT CIRCULATION RATINGS. 

When the name of a paper appears in the 
Directory for the first time, no circulation 
rating is accorded, unless it is the successor 
of another previously described. If its 
printed volume and number dates from its 
predecessor a rating may be given : but not 
if it begins with Vol. I., No. i. 

The classification or rating of a circulation 
by letter in the Directory is determined by 
what is believed to have been the regular issue 
of the publication for the entire year preced- 
ing the date of the report, which should not 
be earlier than December 15, or later than 
January 15 following. 

Some newspapers fail to understand that 
the actual circulation average, or smallest is- 
sue, for the year past, will be stated in the 
Directory, in plain figures, if wanted, and the 
necessary figures are furnished. Every at- 
tempt is made to convey information on this 
point in a way that no publisher can fail to 
comprehend. 

To report his circulation in such a way as 
actually to convey information to an inquirer, 
it is deemed necessary that a publisher shall 
state what it has been for an entire year. 

No publisher can be certain what his circula- 
tion will be for a year to come. He can be posi- 
tive, however, how many copies he has issued 
for the year that has passed, and advertisers 
think that they can judge more intelligently 
from a true statement of what a circulation 
has been than from any sort of a statement 
of what a publisher believes that it will be. 

A circulation statement to be entirely satis- 
factory should be signed with a pen. If 
signed with a hand stamp, or with initials 
only, or by some person whose authority to 
sign is not known or stated, it cannot be ac- 
cepted as one the accuracy of which it will be 
safe to guarantee by the usual $100 forfeit. 

A report giving the number of quires used 
each week (instead of the actual number of 
copies printed) may mean for an eight-page 
paper one-half the actual issue reported in 
quires. A $100 forfeit has once been paid 
by the publishers of the Directory upon a 
deceptive circulation report of this sort. In 
each case of this kind it is found advisable to 
look at the paper. If it has four pages there 
are 24 copies to the quire. If eight pages, it 
will not be safe to allow for more than twelve. 

A quire is 24 sheets, and not 25. 

A ream is 480 sheets, and not 500. 



If the Directory rates a circulation too 
high that closes the door to information from 
the office of the paper. The publisher has 
nothing to gain but something to lose by 
agitating the matter. On the other hand, a 
paper that has actually issued a larger edition 
regularly than it is credited with is more will- 
ing to give information. In cases of un- 
certainty it tends more toward accuracy in 
;he long run if a paper is classed a little too 
lov/ than if it is classed too high. 



ABOUT CIRCULATION REPORTS 

RECEIVED. 

When the report or descriptiori of a paper 
that has been forwarded to a publisher for re- 
vision comes back bearing a mark of acquies- 
cence, or bearing no mark whatever, its return 
is taken as evidence that the publisher has 
examined it and had no corrections to make. 



If a publisher returns a report without any 
remarks about his circulation rating, or fails 
to make anj^ response to the application made 
to him for definite information, it is taken 
as an admission that the rating at present ac- 
corded him is high enough, whatever else 
may be said about it. 

When a publisher claims a higher rating 
than has been given, and seems to be in good 
faith, it may possibly prevent the usual re- 
duction of one step in his rating, even although 
his method of setting up his claiin for a 
higher rating is not as definite as it ought 
to be ; but no rating is advanced on any 
other than a definite statement, the accu- 
racy of which it will be safe for the Directory 
to guarantee by the usual $100 forfeit. 



When a publisher furnishes a true statement 
in detail showing the actual number of copies 
of each and every issue for the preceding year, 
the aggregate number and the average each 
issue, the statement being dated and prop- 
erly signed, his paper is rated " actual 
average /or the fast year'''' (giving the 
average number shown by the figures in the 
report). When a publisher states truly that 
" no issue for the period of a full year pre- 
ceding has been less than a certain number," 
the statement being duly dated and signed, 
the paper is rated ^^ smallest edition issued 
zvithin a year'''' (giving the number shown 
by the report). 

When a publisher furnishes a statement, 
upon the accuracy of which the Editor of the 
Directory does not feel warranted in risking 
the $100 forfeit on account of indefiniteness 
of expression, not being properly signed, or 
any other irregularity, the paper is not al- 
ways rated in the class that seems to be 
claimed for it, but the rating assigned is 
marked with two (* *) asterisks. When one 
(*) asterisk is given the rating is always in 
accordance with the publisher's claim and its 
correctness is guaranteed. When two asterisks 
are used the rating may or may not be in ac- 
cordance with the publisher's claim, and its 
correctness is not guaranteed. He may print 
more, he may print less. 



When a publisher reports that he printed a 
certain specified number each and every is- 
sue for the year past, the same number every 
issue, the circulation is reported "average"" 
instead of " smallest edition." 



THE ANNUAL REVISION. 



11 



When a publisher states what has been his 
average circulation for the past year, and the 
statement is made definitely and is fully signed 
and dated (but without giving the exact figures 
of each issue), his report fails to entitle him to 
the rating letter followed by one asterisk, be- 
cause the Editor of the Directory ought to see 
the figures by which the result was arrived at, 
so that he may know that the calculation 
was made with accuracy. No publisher can 
tell what his average circulation has been 
without first having caused the figures to be 
set down and the necessary calculations made; 
and when that has been done, he may just as 
well send the figures for examination and to 
be placed on file at the office of the Directory. 
A mistake may have been made, which a 
glance would reveal. In cases of this sort, 
where the publisher's statement appears 
reasonable, and the average shown is con- 
siderably higher than the lowest significance 
of the rating letter to which it appears to 
entitle him, the letter may be accorded, fol- 
lowed by one asterisk. 



FINAL DISPOSITION OF CIRCULA- 
TION REPORTS. 

When a report is received which does not 
entitle a publisher to as good a rating as ap- 
pears probable that facts would warrant 
if he would take more care in making out his 
report, a communication is sent to him, indi- 
cating what sort of a rating he will receive, 
and conveying the information that there is 
still time for preparing and sending in such 
a report as will secure him a better rating. 
The circular conveying this information is 
spoken of in the office as the " pink circular." 

When a reply to the pink circular is such 
as will not change the rating already decided 
upon, but makes it appear probable that to 
return it may yet bring such information as 
will lead to an improved rating, it may be re- 
turned, but no record is kept of the trans- 
action, because in the absence of further in- 
formation the case stands precisely as it did 
before the communication that was returned 
came to hand. 

When in doubt about whether to return a 
a report to a paper for additional information 
or not, it is always returned, and if in doubt 
about whether to take the trouble to write a 
letter for the purpose of explaining matters 
and getting better information, or enabling 
the publisher to send additional information 
that will secure him a better rating, the 
letter in such a case is always written. 



On account of the enormous number of pe- 
riodicals having a nominal subscription list 
or sale, it is found advisable to avoid devot- 
ing too much time to inquiries concerning 
dailies not likely to be entitled to be rated 
above K ; to weeklies, tri-weeklies, or semi- 
weeklies not likely to be entitled to be rated 
above J ; or to bi-weeklies, semi-monthlies, 
or quarterlies not likely to be entitled to be 
rated above G (see key, below). 
Exceeding seventy-five thousand, A 

Exceeding forty thousand, B 

Exceeding twenty thousand, C 

Exceeding seventeen th's'd five hundred, D 
Exceeding twelve thousand five hundred, E 
Exceeding seven thousand five hundred, F 
Exceeding four thousand, G 

Exceeding twenty-two hundred and fifty, H 
Exceeding eight hundred, J 

Exceeding four hundred, K. 

Exceeding one hundred, L 



Inasmuch as it is plainly set forth that cir- 
culation reports should cover the period of a 
full year, when a statement of actual issues 
comes to hand covering a shorter time than a 
year, is accepted as an indication that a state- 
ment covering a full year would show a lower 
average issue. 

REDUCING CIRCULATION RATINGS. 

A rating stated by a letter either alone or 
followed by one asterisk (*) is considered to 
have been reduced ONE STEP if two as- 
terisks (**) are attached. A rating by letter 
followed by two asterisks (**) will be reduced 
one step by changing it to the next lower rat- 
ing letter followed by two asterisks or none. 
A rating in Arabic figures is treated as if 
it were a letter rating followed by one as- 
terisk. 

In cases where a daily and a weekly both 
have the same rating, and both are to be cut 
down according to rule, no new information 
being received, the weekly is generally cut two 
steps instead of one ; because the tendency of 
the times is to greatly reduce the circulation of 
weeklies, people nowadays preferring dailies 
at the low prices at which they are sold. 



OTHER USAGES. 

In a town where one paper gives informa- 
tion about its circulation that is definite and 
satisfactory, and another gives information 
the accuracy of which no one would be justi- 
fied in guaranteeing in the form in which it 
is given, a great deal of consideration is 
paid to statements about the circulation of 
rival publications made by the publisher 
who has furnished definite and satisfac- 
tory information about his own ; and very 
little to statements about the circulation of 
his rivals that are made by the publisher who 
has failed to make a satisfactory statement 
about his own. 



Publishers who refrain from furnishing any 
information about circulation are rated by 
capital letters, the meaning of which is made 
known by the key. These ratings repre- 
sent the opinion of the Editor of the Direct- 
ory at the time of going to press, based upon 
information obtained from outside or indirect 
sources, and uninfluenced by any recent au- 
thentic information from office of publication. 



To be correctly rated in the Ameri- 
can Newspaper Directory it is only 
necessary for a publisher to know what 
his edition has been for a year preced- 
ing the date of his report, be willing 
to set forth the facts as they were, 
date the statement and sign it with a 
pen. Every such report, delivered to 
the publishers of the Directory before 
January i6th, 1895, was accepted, be- 
lieved and the paper rated in accord- 
ance. A reward of $25 is at the serv- 
ice of any and every publisher who 
proves that he handed in such a report, 
and that it was not believed, accepted 
and his paper accorded the circulation 
ratnig established by the statement. 



THE OPPORTUNITY OFFERED TO 

NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS BY 

AN ADVERTISEMENT. 



Circulation ratings in the American Newspaper 
Directory are of necessity based upon issues for a 
year that is passed. This circulation is known and 
can be stated with absolute certainty. The interest 
of the advertiser, however, is centered upon the 
issues that are put forth now, or will be issued for a 
year to come. This information, stated upon the 
authority of a publisher, may be given in an adver- 
tisement ; and a conspicuous position in the body of 
the Directory is accorded to such announcements, 
where they cannot fail to receive the attention of 
the advertiser who examines the Directory when 
making plans for an advertising campaign. Such 
newspaper advertisements make the Directory more 
interesting and instructive. Without advertisements 
the publication of the Directory, as well as of most 
newspapers, would cease to yield a profit to its 
compilers and conductors.

A PUBLISHER'S OWN STATEMENT, IN HIS 

OWN WORDS, MAY APPEAR IN THE 

AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECT- 

ORY FOR 1896 

Advertiseinent. A publisher wishing to insert a 
short statement of ten lines or less in the 
coliiDin ifith and fullowhxj the description of 
his paper, in the American Newspaper Direct- 
orj' for 1S96, may do so at the nominal i)rlce 
of ' ten dollars, wnich price will include a free 
copy of the Directory, to be sent by express as 
soon as issued. Ten lines will accommodate 
sixty words, but a smaller number of words 
will not be accepted for less than the price 
named. Additional matter may be inserted at 
ten cents a word. No display or full face type 
can be used. Payments for statements of this 
sort will be expected by check or post-office 
order when proof is submitted For payment 
accompanying the original order— SIO for sixty 
words or less, and 10 cents extra for each word 
more than sixty— a discount of 10 per cent may 
be deducted. All statements of the sort indi- 
cated will be set in pearl type (of which this is 
a specimen), and will be preceded by the word 
"Advertisement." In this way it will be possi- 
ble for a publisher, on his own responsibility, 
to convey any information that he deems im- 
portant to place before advertisers and other 
users of the Directory, in addition to that given 
by the Directory itself. Not very long ago an 
offer of five thousand dollars was made and re- 
fused in one case for a notice similar to this 
now granted for a nominal sum. 

The American Newspaper Directory for 189d 
will also offer to publishers of newspapers, 
who furnish portraits, or pictures, illustrating 
their newspaper buildings, the privilege of 
having them inserted in the Directory in con- 
nection with the description of the paper at 
the nominal price of ten dollars, which will in- 
clude a copy of the book sent by express, as 
soon as issued. The necessary drawing or re- 
production can be made from a photograph 
or other picture, and for this work there will 
be no extra charge. Such a picture may prove 
a valuable and attractive advertisement. It 
would appear that a publisher who owns an 
office building worthy of illustration, or who 
desires that nis face shall become known to 
advertisers and others, may wisely avail him- 
self of the privilege here offered. The cut 
must not exceed one inch in Lngth or in 
width, and in appearance is subject to the ap- 
proval of the Editor of the Directory. 

Those who take pains to examine the Direct- 
ory will find specimen pictures of newspaper 
establishments. When a newspaper owns an 
office it is well to let the fact be known ; for the 
prosperous papers are those that advertisers are 
inclined to think most likely to bring satis- 
factory returns. I'ublishers desiring both the 
announcement and the picture, and but one 
copy of the Directory, will pay S15 for the com- 
bined service, and 10 cents a word extra for 
each word more than sixty. Address all com- 
munications to AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DI- 
RECTORY, No. 10 Spruce St., New York, 

Mr. H. Z Osborne, President of the Evening E.xpress Companj^ of Los Angeles, 
California, when availing himself of the opportunity offered, wrote as follows : "' We 
inclose you a sixty-word statement of ten lines to insert in the column with and following 
the description of our paper in the American Newspaper Directory, in accordance with 
your circular, at ten dollars, with ten per cent off. We inclose our check for nine dollars to 
pay for the same. We think that this is an excellent plan of advertising, and predict that 
you will find it very profitable. A statement which bears upon its face the evidence of 
truth, immediately following the technical description of the paper, is, in our opinion, more 
valuable than a page advertisement in some other portion of the Directory."

Makes millions 
think. 

A. FRANK RICHARDSON. 



AND - 



CASH IN ADVANCE. 

Most printers whom I know pay $40 or $45 for the same qur.ntity — 
quality not quite so good as mine. 

WHY DO THEY DO IT? 

THE REASON IS PLAIN ! 

To buy of me for $20 they have to put up the cash. 

Buying the same goods, or inferior, of others for $40 or 
$45 carries with it 4 or 6 months' credit, and an un = 
derstood right to pay finally with a 6o=day note, and 
possibly to have the note renewed once or twice. 

Possibly this IDEA may make, not millions, but dozens, o! 
printers think ! 1 have already had more than six thousand orders, 
and up to date only a few complaints, and these came from printers 
who wanted me to send the goods on approval or C. O. D. I didn't 
do it till I got the money. There has been no complaint about 
the ink. 

One man sent a remittance 10 cents short. I got the 10 cents, 
however, before he got the ink, and while I waited for the 10 cents he 
waited for the ink, and my bank account was enriched by his partial 
remittance. 

I don't send any bills or keep any books, but I send the ink, and 
warrant it to be the best in the world — the best News Ink, mind you 
— not book or job.

tisers the only means of thoroughly covering 
this desirable field. For rates and full partic-

Advertisement.— The Mobile Register has en-

port of the people of Southern Alabama, Mis- 
sissippi and Western Florida. It covers a field 
peculiarly its own and reaches a population in- 
accessible through other mediums. That ad- 
vertising in it pays is proven by the habitual 
and contmued use of its advertising columns 
by both general and home advertisers. Its 
actual circulation for the last three months 
of 1894 averaged, Daily 5,326, Sunday 7,211, 
Weekly 7,192 — a statement which can be readily 
verified at its office of publication.

Advertisement. — The News Record is an evening' 
pajjer, with Sunday morning edition. Not quite 
three yeai-s old, it has outstripped its more an- 
cient competitor— now has the largest circula- 
tion of any daily in Arkansas, outside of Little 
Rock. Proof of the pudding in the eating. In 
this instance the eating is done by local adver- 
tisers; this paper carries 50 per cent more local 
advertising than its two competitors combined, 
and more foreign advertising than either. As- 
sociated Press dispatches, only paper in State 
using Linotype, three editions daily ; has its own 
artists. 

This paper is credited with a higher circula- 
tion rating than any other daily issued in 
Arkansas west of Little Rock, and the accuracy 
of its rating is guaranteed by the publishers of 
this directory, who will pay a reward of one 
hundred dollars to the first person who proves 
that its issues were not as stated.

"In the twenty-flve years I have been connected with the advertising business," said 
Mr. Place, " I have always held that an advertiser is perfectly right in demanding an accu- 
rate statement of the circulation of any paper he is asked to patronize. I should regard an 
advertiser as a very poor business man if he failed to insist upon the most convincing evi- 
dence of the correctness of the circulation claimed by any paper he purchases space in. I 
am persuaded that the circulation ratings accorded in the American Newspaper Directory 
are not influenced by any business or personal motiva 

"I judge that they follow the same rule in the strict Impartiality and truthfulness of 
their circulation ratings that the managers of a commercial agency do in their credit 
ratings. 

"In choosing between the statement of a publisher and the rating accorded him in the 
American Newspaper Directory, I naturally accept the latter. I would give the circulation 
statement of the average publisher the same credence that I attach to the statement of the 
average merchant, when seeking credit, in respect to his capital, business and standing. In 
giving a merchant credit, any firm to whom he is unknown would ask for reference, and 
consult Dun or Bradstreet as to his rating. It Is exactly the same in the case of a newspaper 
publisher who solicits advertising. When his statement is received, the shrewd and experi 
enced advertiser Immediately consults the American Newspaper Directory in order to as 
certain the rating accorded the circulation of his paper therein. 

" I believe an advertising expenditure founded on the circulation reports in the Direct- 
ory would be far more satisfactory in its results than if the publisher's statements only 
were considered, on the same principle that a mercantile bu-iness is more likely to be suc- 
cessful if Dun or Brad street's reports are accepted rather than the bare statements fur- 
nished by customers. 

" I am convinced that the hundred dollars offered by the publishers of the Directory 
for proof of false reports insures their accuracy. It doubtless has a tendency to cause 
newspaper proprietors and managers to exercise caution in making their returns, and 1 
judge from the small proportion who avail themselves of this privilege, thereby receiving 
a guaranteed rating, that they are fairly w^ell satisfied with the estimates made of their 
papers* circulation. It seems to me that if they were under-rated they would certainly 
take the necessary trouble to make a true statement, and thus obtain proper rating. As I 
understand it, all the American Newspaper Directory publishers require is a simple state- 
ment of the number of each issue for a year. In justice to the advertisers who purchase 
the Directory, they could hardly demand less. It would be a reflection on the Intelligence 
of any publisher to suppose he is ignorant of the number of copies of his paper printed. 
The natural presumption then Is that, without a circulation statement from him, the rating 
accorded by the Directory is satisfactory, and that his paper receives credit for all the clr. 
culation it possesses."

In marked contrast with the careless, smudgy-looking ink circular which 
the Appeal took occasion to comment upon a day or two ago is one just 
received from Jonson, a New York dealer in printers' inks. It is as bright 
and pretty as a May-day queen. The cover, which is handsomely designed 
and printed in four colors, is a tempting inducement to any one to pick up the 
book and examine its contents, whether they are interested in printing inks or 
not. The introduction is written in plain, business-like language, the price 
lists are conveniently arranged under separate headings, and several pages of 
testimonials at the back are clinchers to the preceding arguments, which have 
led the reader up to a point where the next step is almost certain to mean an 
order. Mr. Jonson' s catalogue looks well, reads well, and it will sell inks. 
Mr. Jonson and Printers' Ink are welcome to what additional benefit there 
may be in the statement that it was the clever and convincing advertising done 
in that favorite little trade journal that first induced the management of the 
Appeal to place a trial order, and the report now comes from the job and press- 
rooms that the inks are giving perfect satisfaction. Editorial in Ma^ysville 
{Cal.) Daily Appeal, Jan. 23, 1895.

Printers^ Ink Jonson^ 8 Spruce St.., New York : 

Dear Sir — The loo-lb. keg of ink came to hand last Monday in excellent condition.. 
The ink is very satisfactory and far ahead, in fineness and body, of that which we have 
been in the hahit of paying 25 cents per pound for. A saving of $20 in 100 pounds of su- 
perior ink is something which should open the eyes of all printers. Here is the difference : 

100 lbs. of Jonson's ink, $5.00 100 lbs. ink from San Francisco $25.00 

Freight from New York, 3.08 Freight and P. O. Order, 3.10 

$8.08 $28.10 

A clear gain of $20.02 on 100 lbs. of ink. I am, yours respectfully, 

JAS. GEO. CLEVIOR, Foreman New Era. 

Send for my beautiful price list in five colors.

American Newspaper Directory 

Is to the newspaper fraternity and to advertisers what Brad- 
street's and Dan's commercial reports are to the mercantile and 
capitalist interests. The only difference being that the News- 
paper Directory quotes circulation, while Bradstreet and Dun 
quote financial standings. The editor of Scranton (Pa.) Tricth 
recently stated that : The circulation of a newspaper is as im- 
portant to its successful existence as the circulation of the 
blood is to the human system. This is why journals that can 
prove the circulation they claim are always ready to do so, and 
this is why journals without circulation are so willing to deceive 
the business public into the belief that they have something 
which they have not. The subscription price of the American 
Newspaper Directory is Five Dollars. It is published by Geo. 
P. Rowell & Co., at No. lo Spruce St , New York.

THERE ARE NO MARKS ON MY INKS. 



/ Omit Them to Humor the Pressman. 




Old Mr. Montaigne, the Frenchman, used to excuse his 
practice of borrowing from the classics without giving credit 
by saying that it delighted his soul to have his critics " rap 
Plato over the knuckles," when they thought they were cudgel- 
ing him. 

That idea works tip-top in my business. 

When the pressman thinks he is using the ink from the 
celebrated factory whose contributions have enabled him to 
build his cottage on the hill, he really don't feel like saying 
anything even when he is amazed to find that a particular barrel 
is superior to any he has had before. 

One newspaper man writes me : 

" I have read a circular of yours received this morning in reference to 
your 4-cent ink. A great many statements made therein are true to my per- 
sonal knowledge. I send you herewith a check for $20 for a 500-pound barrel. 
If it is possible, I desire that the barrel shall come through w^ithout any marks 
indicating what house shipped it." 



I have sold two hundred tons of NEWS INK within a year and NO ONE HAS 
COMPLAINED. I begin to feel confident that I am making an impression on the ink 
trade. I sell 

? 500-pound Barrel at 4c., $20 00 S 

( 250-pound Barrel at 4J^c., 11 25 > 
J 100-pound Keg at 5c., 5 00 J 

€ 50-pound Keg at 5}4c., 2 75 ^ 

25rpound Keg at 6c., 1 50 

My ink is just as good NEWS INK as can be bought anywhere at 25 cents a pound. It 
is not a matter of price. 

My ink is the best in the world for newspaper work. That is all I claim for it. 

To make it certain that I can suit, all that I need is to see a copy of the paper to be 
printed, to know the kind of press used and the temperature of the press-room ; and, most 
important of all, a check with the order.

The mote removed, but- 



That there are pressmen who are accorded a subsidy from 
firms supplying them the ink they use is a fact that is acknowledged and is greatly to be 
deplored. An instance came to light a few days ago in which one of such pressmen in New 
York deservedly came to grief. A salesman made him a "present" of a bill with a "V" in 
the corner, and received an order for a small quantity of ink. A few minutes later, the 
pressman came into the office, where the salesman and proprietor were talking, and walking 
up to the latter said: "This gentleman has just presented me with $5, which I will turn 
over to you, I have no use for it." The proprietor turned to the salesman, who looked at 
the pressman a moment, and said : "Why not turnover the 'fifty 'you received last week 
and which you get every month from the firm supplying you regularly with ink ? It would 
perliaps be as well to make the affair complete while you are about it." The denouement 
was too much for the pressman, and his embarrassment made a denial of little avail. — Inland 
Printer for October, 1894. 



These things do not happen to the pressman 

when the office buys ink of me. 

I save pressmen's fees, traveling expenses, col- 
lection fees, salesmen's salaries, all by my system of 

collecting 

CASH BEFORE SHIPMENT,

The man who, in these times, consents to pay from eight to twenty-five cents a pound 
for news ink when he can buy a better article of me for four cents— and buys carmine at two 
dollars an ounce when I will sell him four ounces of the identical stuff for fifty cents, and 
other Job Inks in proportion, must either be very wealthy or very much under the influence 
■of a pressman who is on excellent terms with the ink manufacturer.

Advertisement.— Wsiterhury is essentially a Sun- 
day newspaper field, because its forty thousand 
people are nearly all employed in the great 
manufacturing concerns, for which the town is 
noted, and they have little time for daily news- 
papers. The Sunday Globe is lively and in- 
teresting. Full of the vim and energy of 
modern progressive journalism, it has in a short 
time forged its way to a popular success. It is 
now the only paper printed on Sunday within a 
radius of twenty -three miles of Waterbury (all 
others coming in on the trains), and it is a wel- 
come visitor in that entire circle every Sunday 
morning. It has carried on an average more 
than half its entire space in advertising since 
its first issue, something which canuot be said 
truthfully of any other Sunday newspaper in 
all New England.

Sure Test 



One of the shrewdest advertising men in the 
country once remarked, ^' show me the paper that car- 
ries the largest number of ' Want ' and other small 
ads, and I will show you the best and most widely cir- 
culated paper in that town." 



The 



Evening 




has always enjoyed that distinction in Washington, 
and the quantity and quality of its circulation proves 
this assertion. 

It has more than double the number of small ads 
of any other paper in Washington, because it is a 
" home " paper. 

It goes into 82^ per cent of the occupied houses 
of the city, and it is presumed that the 17^ per cent 
who do not take it at home either buy it on the street 
or are too poor to afford a daily paper.

Advertisement. — The limited number of daily 
papers published in Washington makes it pos- 
sible to cover this field with a smaller expendi- 
tui-e of money than any other city where the 
same number of people are to be reached. 
While the circulation of the News does not ex- 
ceed 12,000, it has many more readers during 
the year than other newspapers having the 
same circulation. Its admirable make-up and 
condensed foi-ni render it more valuable to ad- 
vertisers than blanket-sheet publications, and 
the best advertisers of the country have al- 
ready ascertained this fact and profited by it. 
Rates are extremely reasonable and are based 
on actual circulation. For particulars address

has not been described in a previous edition of 
the book. Otherwise the Times would undoubt-

No matter in what business 
you are engaged, you can find 
the greatest amount of prac- 
tical, valuable and reliable 
information to be obtained 
between the covers of any 
publication in that famous 
compendium — concise and com- 
prehensive — Printers' Ink." 



It is not devoted to any particular line, like most 
Jrade publications, but meets everybody's wants. 
It reaches out into all departments of business af- 
fairs, and treats them from the " I've-been-there " 
standpoint, which is a perfectly tenable one for the 
publishers to take, for they have been studying the 
problem of advertising for thirty years. They press 
into service the best talent, and publish a magazine 
that is not estimated in value by a certain number 
of dollars and cents.

Every State and Territory 

On Saturday, August nth, I received my first order from the 
District of Columbia and the State of Louisiana. 

On Monday, August 13th, the first order from Idaho came 
to hand. 

On Tuesday, August 14th, the first order from California 
reached me. 

On Wednesday, September 5th, the first order from Utah came. 

On Saturday, September 8th, I had an order for the first time 
from North Dakota. 

On Monday, September 17th, the first order from the Indian 
Territory came in. 

On Saturday, November 3d, I had my first order from Wy- 
oming. 

On Friday, December 14th, I received my first order from 
Oregon. 

I am now able to proudly assert that I am selling inks to every 
State and Territory with the sole exception of Alaska. 

This is the more marvelous as the only way 1 have solicited 
trade has been through an advertisement in Printers' Ink. 

I employ no agents and keep no books. My terms are CASH 
with the order. 

I have sold two hundred tons of News Ink since I commenced 
business and no one has complained. 

I am supplying over two thousand offices with News and Job 
Inks. Ten thousand others would buy of me if the owners could 
overcome the habit of getting trusted for Printing Inks. 

I have surely made an impression on the ink trade. I sell 



600 pound Bai-r:l at 4c., 


$20 00 


250 pound Barrel at 4J^c., 


11 25 


100-pound Keg at 5c., 


5 00 


50-pound Keg at bV^c., 


2 75 


25-pound Keg at 6c., 


1 50 



My ink is just as good NEWS Ink as can be bought anywhere 
at 25 cents a pound. It is not a matter of price. 

My ink is the best in the world for newspaper work. That is 
all I claim for it. 

To make it certain that I can suit, all that I need is to see a 
copy of the paper to be printed, to know the kind of press used 
and the temperature of the piess-room, and, most important of all, 
a CHECK with the order. Address

T. E. PICOTTE, Editor and Proprietor. 

^ . 

ITS HOME is in the GREAT WOOD RIVER MINING REGION, and within fifteen miles of 
the famous Camas Prairie, which is one of the garden s(iots of tlie Pacific Northwest. 

Its tributary country exceeds in area tliat of any two New England States, and is 
rapidly filling up witli energetic people who, coming with few supplies, need all the tools, 
implements and adjuncts of the most progressive civilization. 

Miners are paid a minimum of $3 per day's work of eight hours, and so-called "com- 
mon" laborers the same. A wood-sawyer or chopper who does not earn $4 per day 
scarcely considers that he has made wages. Farm hands are not always obtainable at $50 
per month and " found." 

Residents therefore earn much more than they would elsewhere in the same occupa- 
tions, and their aggregate wealth is probably larger than that of an Eastern population 
twenty times as immerous. 

The late Jay Gould spent his last summers on earth here. His family and friends occu- 
pied eight palace cars. H. K. Thurber, the New York merchant prince, and his family; 
United States Senator Thurston and his family, and hundreds of other prominent persons, 
spend their summers angling for trout in our streams, hunting for bear or other game in 
our mountains and freshening their energies. This adds to the purchasing power of the 
community in no small degree.

President Beals' Opinion. 



A publisher and purveyor of advertising space, whose opinions of ihe American Newspa- 
per Directory are worthy of publicity, is Mr. James H. Beals, Jr., the President of the New 
York Newspaper Union. Mr. Beals may be regarded as repiesenting the local country 
weekly. Nearly all the 1,400 publishers who procure their partly printed sheets ("patent 
insides") from Mr. Beals' ready-print establishment are rated in the Directory, and hence a 
large proportion of its contents is studied by him with considerable interest. 

" The fact that I keep no other Newspaper Directory in my office," said Mr, Beals, "is 
a pretty fair indication of the value I set upon it. It is undoubtedly the best work of that 
character published, and 1 can offer no suggestion as to its improvement because I consider it 
alrtady as near perfection as money and labor can make it. I am satisfied that the repoi ts 
printed in the Directory concerning the circulations of the more important papers are tolerably 
correct. If errors do exist, I think they are rather favorable than otherwise to the publisher. 
The mistakes in the book which have come to my notice are in the ratings accorded country 
publications. I know the circulation of the papers partly printed by my company just as 
well as the publishers do. A newspaper owner does not order more copies of his paper printed 
than he is certain of selling. If we are in the habit of supplying him sufficient papers for a 
thousand copies and he is accorded a circulation in the Directory of 800, we know an injustice 
has been done him. I have not the least suspicion that Geo. P. Rowell & Co. desire to do an 
injustice to any one. I feel sure that no improper motives guide them in the ratings they 
accord. I do not deny that a newspaper publisher can avoid an under-rating by making a 
return of the number of copies of his paper printed. A certain number of them do so, but I 
fear their reports are not always correct. Every now and then some customer of ours will 
complain that a rival publisher has sent in a report of that character and been given a rating 
in the Directory to which he was not entitled. I believe that $100 reward offered for evidence 
of false reports has a deterrent influence on publishers disposed to make untruthful returns. 
This is especially the case with those papers wholly or in part printed in a different office from 
the one they are published in. 

" It is not the same, however, in the case of papers printed in the office of the publisher 
by his own employees. If he is in the habit of making false reports he will be careful not to 
engage any one whom he has reason to suspect would betray him. 

" I recognize the right of an advertiser to know the exact circulation of every medium 
he is asked to give business to. I would never think of refusing information of that nature 
to any advertiser who contemplates using the list of papers I represent. I believe an adver- 
tiser who allows himself to be controlled in his selection of mediums by the ratings in the 
Directory ia .lot liable to go far astray. But I also believe he should give a publisher a hear- 
ing before refusing to pay more for space in his paper than the circulation ratings in the 
Directory show it to be worth."

■:oo:- 



THE GRAPHIC believes in Protection for American Industries 

and Reciprocity. 



We desire to call your attention to the reorganization of 
The Graphic Illustrated Weekly, Chicago. Having enlarged 
its capital, it is now in first-class financial condition, and in the 
future we intend to make The Graphic better than ever — and 
increase its 60,000 circulation twofold. You no doubt are aware 
that for the last ten years it has been considered one of the 
best weekly family illustrated newspapers in America — ranking 
and often excelling Harper s — as The Graphic's World's Fair 
and other editions convinced the world at large. Nothing in 
The Graphic columns, either reading matter or advertise- 
ments, is allowed but that which is pure and unobjectionable^ 
as our subscriptions are principally from families., and The 
Graphic's aim has always been, and always will be, to continue 
to be a family illustrated newspaper. We hope old and new 
patrons will place The Graphic on their 1895 list for adver- 
tisements and subscriptions.

their lot with the labor luoveraent and retained for any length of time the confidence of 
the working classes. Through the Eiijht-TJnur H'ra Ul which is controlled by him, he has 
become known as a fearless thougn (c-mperale and conservative champion of the best in- 
terests of organized labor. At the same time Mr. Hollister is a recognized counselor of 
the unions in all matters affecting their prosperity, their treasurer in public movements, 
the custodian of their state secrets and the official printer of many of their publications. 
They have absolute confidence in him, and to this fact alone is due his success as a busi- 
ness-man and as a counselor of labor. Many men have sought influence and fortune in 
the same field and have failed utterly. Others have been absolutely ruined by the venture, 
and those- who have met with short-lived success have almost invariably fallen with the 
tide of labor agitation. With Mr. Hollister, howevei-, it has been different. He has un- 
doubtedly got very close to the groat masses of people who are reached through his 
paper. This fact is all the more remarkable when it is known that he is still a very 
young man. He was born in Osbkosh, Wis., in lS6fl,juid is not yet thirty years of age. 
Very early in life he realized .all the advantages to begsiped by organization and assisted 
in organizing a typographical union at Osbkosh, tnSs^cond of the kind in the state. 
Previous to that event he had learned the rrintine trade as^had developed remarkable 
aptitude for the callinp. Shortly after the organization of tn^vTypograpliical Union at 
Oshkosb he removed to tViis city. In 1886 he perceived the poss^^^Uty of success for a 
printing-hoisedevoted exclusively to the work of organized labor\S^5'-tn company with 
Lis brother started f '••firm of which he is now the senior member. Always an ardent 
advocate of the sho. .-hour movement, the eight-hour day with the ten-hour wage sched- 
ule haa prevailed in the office and remarkable success has met the efforts of the pub- 
Usher.. Mr. Hollister has a pleasant home on the North Side. He was married in 1881 
andTias four children, three boys and a girL In politics he is a democrat, except when 
there is a bona-fide labor-ticket in the field. While Mr. HoUister's greatest interest lies 
with the labor organizatrons, he is also a prominent member of the masonic and forester 
fraternities. He is the treasurer of the Phoenir Federal Labor Union and ah honorary 
member of the Chicago Typographical Union. Recently the publisher has devoted much 
of his time to the work of the Civic Federation, of which he U a member, and has identi- 
fied himself closely with its interests.

I see it 

Wherever 

I go! 



Speaki ng of the American Newspaper Directory, Mr. S. C. Beckwith, 
the most successful of the New York special agents, gays : 
" I see it wherever I go. 



" Prominent advertisers are constantly consulting it. 

" When I approach an advertiser for a paper that I represent, the 



first thing he does is to spring Rowell on me. 

" He hunts up the city and the paper ; looks at the rating the Direct- 
ory gives and then is ready to listen to me ; hut not till then. 

. " The new plan that permits placing an advertisement where an ad- 
vertiser^s eye may see it, at the very time when he is consulting the 
Directory for the purpose of deciding what papers to use in a specified 
State or city, pleases me . 

" It has led me to urge all of my papers strongly to use advertising 
space in the Directory. 



" An advertisement in such a position cannot be skipped. 

" The advertiser sees the advertisement at just the moment when 
he is most interested in finding out about the particular paper. 

"If the advertisement is truthful and its statements well expressed, 
it cannot fail to do good. 

•••••••••••• 

" A book rendering such a service to the better class of newspapers 
deserves to be patronized and protected, aided and encouraged."

We- desire to call the attention of 
publishers to the printing of the half- 
tone on the tirst page, something sei- 
dorn attempted in newspapers. " The 
results are as cerfect as the soft piint 
paper will admit of. But the most 
reuuirkable feature of it is that it \va« 
printed with 4c ink purchased of VVm, 
Johnston, 10 Spruce street. New Y.isrk, 
who has revolutionized the ink busi- 
es. His 4c iuk gives us better satis- 
action tlian the 22c ink we usfd pre-

Mr. A. J. Schaeffer, proprietor of the Marshall County 
Democrat^ published at Lacon, Illinois, sends me a recent 
copy of his paper containing a half-tone cut printed with 
the ink that I sell at four cents a pound when ordered 
in 500-lb. barrels, and paid for in advance. Mr. Schaeffer 
or his assistant, Mr. W. B. Powell, has been good enough 
to favor me with a short editorial notice, which I print 
above. I must say that when I saw the work he had 
done with my four-cent ink I was amazed. I would not 
have thought of claiming so much for the ink as he has 
gotten out of it. I wish that people who think of buy- 
ing ink of me, and hesitate because they fear that the 
quality will not be up to the standard, would send ten 
cents in stamps, or thereabouts, to the Marshall County 
De?iiocrat^ of Lacon 111., and obtain a copy of the very 
paper containing the half-tone here referred to. To save 
time, so as to be able to strike when the iron is hot, I 
would recommend all such persons to write to me by the 
same mail, inclosing six cents in stamps, for my beauti- 
ful price list, prmted in five colors, with a living picture 
on the outside cover. Address, 

PRINTERS INK JONSON,

The printers begin to assert that, although my News Inks are better than 
any others, the strangest thing remains to be told • for no other Job Inks 
approach mine in quality, even when sold at sixteen times my prices.

THE TRANSCRIPTS have been regular visitors to the HOMES of PEORIA and

All these people know and believe in THE DAILY TRANSCRIPl'. 

THE SUNDAY MORNING TRANSCRH'T, besides having all the features of the 
regular daily editions, is the Leading Society Newspaper of the city. 

THE WEEKLY TRANSCRIPT goes to more homes in the surrounding country and 
villages than any other Peoria paper.
