PREFACE. 



The American Newspaper Directory is revised and issued 
quarterly — on the first of March, June, September and De- 
cember. 

The method adopted for according circulation ratings is 
explained in detail on inside of first cover page. The papers 
rated "jkl" are credited with regular issues exceeding one 
hundred and falling below one thousand copies. One thousand 
being the general advertiser's unit of value, these small papers 
are dealt with mainly by local advertisers, who form their own 
opinion of the precise issue and its consequent worth. To the 
general advertiser papers of less than a thousand issues are not 
of much account, because the cost of watching contracts and 
keeping accounts is a considerable item, which, added to the 
lowest obtainable price, generally makes it too dear to be profit- 
able. Nearly six thousand publications catalogued m the fol- 
lowing pages are rated with a circulation each issue of one 
thousand copies or more, leaving about fifteen thousand rated 
in the ''jkl" class, less the new papers not accorded a rating 
and those which do not insert advertisements. 

The circulation of a newspaper is expressed by the number 
of complete copies printed. What is done with the completed 
copies has a bearing only in fixing the value or character of the 
circulation. 

Circulation is by no means the only element of value that 
an advertiser will consider when weighing the probable worth to 
him of a particular newspaper, but although not the only ele- 
ment of value existing, circulation is the only element that can 
be measured and stated with exactness and accuracy. 

Any publisher of a newspaper entitled to a higher circula- 
tion rating than is accorded in this book knows that it was his 
privilege to have his exact figures inserted had he been willing 
to furnish them, and that it is his privilege to now furnish the 
requisite information and thereby secure a correct rating in the 



6 PREFACE. 



next issue of the book, which comes out three months later. 
Where a publisher is unwilling to supply the requisite in- 
formation, the experience of the editor of the Directory has 
taught him that it is always for a reason more satisfactory to the 
publisher than it would be to an advertiser who is thinking of 
using the advertising columns of the paper. 

One criticism frequently made by the users of this Directory 
is the wide jumps between the different classes of circulation 
ratings by letter as explained in the key. It may generally be 
set down, however, that the letter ratings do fit pretty close in a 
majority of cases, because it is well known to newspaper men 
that whenever a paper is entitled to a rating very much higher 
than the lowest interpretation of the letter rating accorded, a 
plain statement of the facts will procure the insertion of the ex- 
act circulation in plain figures. It costs the newspaper nothing 
to get them. If NOT entitled to higher figures, then the letter 
rating answers its purpose very well. 

On the following four pages are given the plan and rules 
by which the editor of The American Newspaper Directory is 
guided in making his quarterly revisions. They are recom- 
mended to the attention of newspaper publishers as well as 
other users of the Directory. 

The State maps, giving the name and location of every town 
in which is a newspaper credited with a circulation of as much 
as i,ooo, will be helpful to advertisers. These maps are neces- 
sarily revised from the previous — 1897, December — Directory, 
but the changes to date are few.

THE AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORYo 



PLAN OF PUBLICATION 

AND 

RULES FOR THE REVISION 

OF THE 

QUARTERLY ISSUES. 



Publishers and others who consider the plan o^ revision here set forth to be 
fatilty are invited to send suggestions going to show where and hoiv they believe the 
plan may be improved. 

Such suggestions, offered in good faith, always have careful consideration. They 
should be addressed to the Editor of the American Newspaper Directory, No. lo 
Sprtice Street, New York. 



For thirty successive years the 
American Newspaper Directory has 
been issued — each issue (with added 
care and experience) being an improve- 
ment upon previous ones. Long ago 
it gained an acknowledged position as 
the one authentic and trustworthy 
autliority concerning the circulation of 
the newspapers of North America. 

The American Newspaper Directory 
consists of Parts I., II., III. and IV. 

Part I. of the Directory contains a 
complete catalogue of all American 
newspapers and periodical publica- 
tions. 

Part II. of the Directory consists of 
a complete catalogue of all papers 
rated in Part I. (the catalogue portion) 
as having a circulation of 1,000 copies 
or more. 

Part III. of the Directory consists 
of a catalogue of Sunday papers having 
circulations exceeding 1,000 copies. 

Part IV. of the Directory consists 
of the Class Lists; no papers, save those 
having a circulation rating of 1,000 
copies or over, are catalogued. 

The publishers of the American 
Newspaper Directory began the twen- 
ty-ninth year by issuing it quarterly in- 
stead of once a year, giving up-to- 
date information, correcting errors 
quickly, and devoting especial atten- 
tion to the circulation ratings of papers 
claiming to print as many as one 
thousand copies regularly. 

Commencing with the June issue for 
1897, there was given in the Directory 
a summary of all Directory ratings 
(exceeding 1,000 in 1S96) accorded 
during the preceding five years. The 
circulation rating of all other papers 
was indicated by the logotype"} K L. " 
Among these were included all papers 
that in times past had been variously 
credited with a circulation letter rating 



of either "J, KorL, " or with actual 
figures less than 1,000, and which did 
not for the year 1896 furnish evidence 
of an actual average issue of so much 
as 1,000 copies or more. 

The price of a single copy of the 
Directory is now, as heretofore, $5. 
The annual subscription for the four 
issues is $20, or including an annual 
subscription for Printers' Ink, $25, 
but the subscriber at $25 becomes a 
member of the American Newspaper 
Directory Confidential Information 
Bureau, and as such, and in con- 
sideration of the payment of the 
sum of twenty-five dollars, as afore- 
said, strictly in advance, is entitled 
to, and allowed, the privilege of ap- 
plying to the publishers of the Direct- 
ory, at pleasure, for a confidential 
report concerning the circulation or 
character of any newspaper credited 
by the Directory with a circulation 
rating greater than 1,000 copies per 
issue. Such confidential reports are 
supplied to subscribers whenever 
asked for. 

The rules that govern the editor of 
the Directory in making his quarterly 
revisions are as follows ; 

As soon as one quarterly edition of 
the Directory has been issued, a revis- 
ion is begun upon the edition to follow 
three months later. 

On the 15th day of the month of 
issue of each quarterly edition, viz.: 
March, June, September and Decem- 
ber, a communication is sent to every 
paper credited in the preceding Direct- 
ory with over 1,000 circulation, in- 
closing a marked leaf of the Directory 
on which the paper is described, and 
requesting the publisher to furnish not 
later than the 15th of the following 
month any correction that may be 
needed ; also a statement of the circula-

tion of his own paper covering an entire 
year if he wishes to make one. 

On the i6th of January, April, 
July and October, the editor of the 
Directory commences a revision from 
reports and corrections received. 
Each letter or report is read and every 
change is noted. This work is com- 
pleted about the first of February, 
May, August and November, respect- 
ively. Correspondence coming later is 
put aside for consideration during the 
next quarterly revision. 

*' New Newspapers" heard of since 
the revision of the last Directory, and 
those established before the 15th day 
of January, April, July and October 
are sent for, and if copies are obtained 
the papers are properly described upon 
cards especially prepared for that pur- 
pose, and duly entered for the next 
edition. Between the sixteenth day of 
the months referred to and the 
first day of February, May, August 
and November, these new newspaper 
cards completed, with the requisite gaz- 
etteer description of new towns, are sent 
to the printer to be put in type. 

Advertisements to appear in the 
Directory are entered at the time they 
are received and those known as 
'* notices '' or "publisher's announce- 
ments " (which follow the description in 
the catalogue portion of the book), are 
put in type and galley proofs are re- 
turned to the editor of the Directory 
ready to be inserted in the page forms 
as they are made up. Display adver- 
tisements are also set, electrotyped and 
held ready for insertion in their proper 
positions. 

On the first day of February, May, 
August and November, the editor be- 
gins to furnish the printer copy 
enough for making up four sixteen- 
page forms (64 pages) daily. He 
s\stematically prepares this copy by 
going over each page to see that needed 
changes are made, scanning the alpha- 
betical arrangement of towns and 
newspapers, inserting new newspapers 
antl advertisements where they belong 
and looking out for " breaks" in gen- 
eral. When satisfied of the correct- 
ness of the copy, he passes it to the 
printers daily till about the 25th of the 
month, when the last of the copy is 
dealt with. On the first day of the 
following month (the month of issue) 
the new Directory is bound and ready 
for delivery. 



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

The names of new newspapers are 
obtained 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 publishers. To 
obtain cojjies of these new newspapers 
a special post-paid wrapper is mailed 
to each. All so received are entered 
and described on cards prepared for 
that purpose, but no new newspaper is 
entered in the Directory unless a copy 
is at hand bearing a date later than the 
month of issue of the preceding edition 
of the Directorv. 

Unless there are strong reasons to 
tlie contrary, the name of a publication 
that is not admitted to the United 
States mails as second-class matter is 
not entered in the Directory. And 
under the same restrictions, any publi- 
cation admitted as second-class matter 
is generally considered entitled to be 
entered in the Directory. 

The object in publishing the Direct- 
ory is to make an actual catalogue of 
the legitimate periodical press. It is in- 
tended that publications of ephemeral 
character, such as are not periodicals in 
fact, shall not have a place in the Di- 
rectory. In order that some rule may 
obtain by which it can be decided 
whether a paper shall be catalogued or 
not, the practice obtains that if in doubt 
whether a publication shall be included 
or excluded, it is always excluded. 

In cases where a paper is dated from 
two places it is catalogued under the 
town where it properly belongs, but 
maybe 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 words " prints an 
addition for " (naming town), or 
" prints special editions for neighbor- 
ing towns " are added and the circula- 
tion rating in such cases reads "com- 
bined circulation." No other mention 
of the extra " editions" is made.

aate and sigiiature, it sometimes se- 
cures a rating in one of the following 
forms  

Puoas.'ier says that no edition in 1897 was 
less than — 

Publisher says that the smallest edition in 
1897 was not less than — 

Publisher says that every edition in 1897 
exceeded — 

Publisher says that in 1897 he printed 

every issue : 

or in such other form as will most 

correctly quote the publisher's own 

words. 



When a publisher states what has 
been his average circulation for the 
past year, and the statement is made 
definitely and is fuUv signed and dated 
(but without giving the exact figures of 
each issue), his report sometimes se- 
cures for him the letter rating in which 
the circulation fells, but not a rating in 
Arabic figures. Such statements are 
unsatisfactory, however, because the 
Editor of the Directory ought to see 
the figures by which the result was ar- 
rived 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 examina- 
tion and to be placed on file at the 
office of the Directory. A mistake 
may have been made, which a glance 
would reveal. 

When a publisher furnishes informa- 
tion, but not in detail, claiming a higher 
circulation than that already accorded 
his paper, if his claim appears to have 
some foundation, the double dagger 
(ft) is added to the rating, which means 
"claims a higher rating, bu't fails to 
furni*^!! a satisfactory statement to sus- 
tain his claim, "although told that such 
a statement is needed and furnished 
with a blank showing how it should be 
made. 



Daily papers having a Sunday issue 
are accorded a separate circulation rat- 
ing for the daily alone, and another for 
the Sunday edition whenever it is pos- 
sible to do this upon the information 
furnished. 



When a morning and an evening 
edition of a daily are published, even 
though the evening edition has a 
different name, the circulation report is 
permitted to cover both editions, and 
is so stated in the book, provided ad- 



vertisements ordered in one edition 
appear in both without extra charge. 

The following is the key to esti- 
mated circulation ratings used in the 
Director}' :

The following signs follow the rating 
letter or figures in some cases: 

# The accuracy of this rating has been 
questioned by one or more persons who 
claim to have facilities for knowing the facts. 
## The accuracy of this rating has been 
questioned by one or more persons who claim 
tohave facilities for knowing the factSj and 
it is feared that the doubts expressed do rest 
upon a substantial founaation. 

II I I II The editor of the American News- 
paper Directory has offered to cause the cor- 
rectness of this circulation rating to be veri- 
fied by a special examination, provided the 
publisher of the paper would agree to place 
the necessary facilities at his disposal. It was 
stipulated that the verification should be 
without cost to the publisher of tiie paper, 
but to this offer the publisher's response was 
not such as to entirely remove the impression 
of doubt that has been cast on the rating. 

Whenever those marks of doubt ap- 
pear against the circulation rating of a 
paper, the circulation rating of the 
paper so marked is not given in the 
list of more than 1. 000 in Part II. of 
the Directory, or in other tabulations, 
but in place of the rating, the mark # 
is substituted. 



The rating "J K L " means any- 
where from one copy up to one thou- 
sand copies. It means that the esti- 
mated average issue of the paper does 
not exceed a thousand. 



To "J K L" papers that have 
claimed, by correspondence on file, an 
issue of more than 1,000 copies^ it is 
the practice to send a copy of the regu- 
lar application for information at the 
time o: the quarterly revision. The 
publisher is thus given an op|-)ortunity 
to exhibit his right to a higher circula'- 
tion rating if he cares to do so. 



Publishers who refrain from furnish- 
ing any information about circulation, 
or who furnish information in a form 
that is not specific and authentic, are 
rated by capital letters, the meaning of 
which is made known by the key. 



TELUNO 
SECRETS 



Mr. A. W. Peterson, advertisinof manap'er of 
The Indianapolis News, in a conversation about 
Newspaper Directories and advertising ^ylblications, 
recently said: "I believe the American Newspaper 
Directory has gone further in bringing out the truth 
about newspaper circulation than any other publi- 
cation. We think very highly of the American 
Newspaper Directory. I notice that Mr. Rowell's 
friends are the honest, strong nev/spapers of the 
country, and it is their indorsement that is w^orth 
most and counts most in showing that he is doing 
his work honestly and thoroughly. Printers' Ink 
is undoubtedly the leader among publications de- 
voted to advertising. It is the first of its kind. I 
have read it from the beginning. I said from the 
beginning that it was telling just what I have learned 
in ten y'ears' experience as a printer, pressman 
publisher, reporter and advertising manager — telling 
just what people are anxious to know — secrets. 
That is what made it a success from the beginning. 
Everybody wants to know how to prepare advertis- 
ing, how to make paying contracts, and Printers* 
Ink has devoted its entire career to tellinor these 
things. Everybody seeks favorable publicity for 
their work or their wares, and that is why I believe 
that everybody is interested in Printers' Ink."

CONCERNING THE CHARACTER AND 
CIRCULATION OF NEWSPAPERS. 



The American Newspaper Directory is issued four times a year. 
Orders are solicited for an annual subscription covering the four issues (which 
appear on the first day of March, June, September and December) and a 
yearly subscription for Printers' Ink, a journal for advertisers, issued 
weekly. The price of an annual subscription is twenty-five dollars ; and the 
subscriber becoi^es a member of The American Newspaper Directory 
Confidential Information Bureau, and in consideration of the payment of the 
sum of twenty-five dollars, strictly in advance, is entitled to the privilege of 
applying to the publishers of the Directory, at plea«.ure, for a confidential 
report concerning the circulation or character of any newspaper credited by 
the American Newspaper Directory with a circulation rating greater 
than 1,000 copies per issue. Such confidential reports will be supplied to 
subscribers whenever called for. 

Ill dealing with newspapers and periodicals and paying them large sums 
for advertising it often appears essential to the advertiser to know about the 
stability, character, standing and present circulation of a particular publication 
under consideration. The information conveyed by a newspaper directory is 
necessarily brief and touches only upon well-defined lines. A timely knowledge 
of some important detail of the past, present and the probable future of a 
paper may occasionally prevent an unwarranted expenditure. What seems gold 
on the surface is sometimes only gilding. fe^^^i

EVERYBODY'S PAPER." 



Tbc Da^ily Ledger 

IS THE MOST WIDELY READ OF ANY PUBLiCATION IN THE 

GREAT BIRMINGHAM DISTRICT. 

While I pr)(^pP is the only penny paper in Alabama, its phenom- 
the L-L L' vJ L IV enal circulation is not due to its low price. People 
take it because its news is fresher, greater In variety, more compact and 
yet comprehensive than that of its competitors. Above everything else, it 
is perfectly fair. The success of the paper Is unparalleled in the history of 
Southern journalism. Like reading a fairy story. But send for a sample 
copy and judge for yourself

Which of These Classes Do 
You Patronize? 



There are three classes of newspaper publishers : First, 
those who believe an advertiser is entitled to know their circula- 
tion, and are willing that he should and to take any and every 
step desirable for accomplishing the purpose ; second, those who 
wnsh to have an advertiser think that they wish to have their cir- 
culation known, but are determined to avoid that result by every 
means ])Ossible ; third, those who believe that their circulation is 
a private matter and concerns no one but themselves, and that 
inquiries concerning it are an impertinence. — Printers' Ink. 

The first class are doing business on lines recog- 
nized to be right in every class of business the 
world over. 

The second class are usually designated as '' cir- 
culation liars," and should be classed with three-card 

monte shares, etc. 

The third class are men who are charging more 

for their advertising space than they themselves 

know it to be worth, and are only a slight degree 

better than the second class. They ask their patrons 

to do business with them on a basis which they would 

not concede to those that they patronize. — The Cycle

Advertisement.— The Daily Report is one of 
the great newspaper successes of the 
rnited States. It is bright, newsy, popular 
and independent, and its slogan, "If you 
don't take the Daily Report you don't get 
the news," is a household phrase on the 
Pacific Coast. For nine years the Report- 
fought the Southern Pacific Railroad and 
advocated the building of a competing^ 
railroad, and, thanks to the efforts of the 
Report, that competing railroad is now 
being built. A paper that is independent 
and succeeds in its independence is the- 
best advertising medium in existence, and 
such a paper is the San Francisco Daily 
Report.

68 AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORS, 



Guaranteed Circulation. 

The Proprietors' Association of America, 
at its annual convention held recently in Rich- 
mond, Va., passed resolutions binding its mem- 
bers to give preference in placing their adver- 
tising to those newspapers and other publica- 
tions which guarantee their circulation. The 
fact that this association is composed largely 
of advertisers of proprietary articles, many of 
them among the largest in the country, adds 
to the importance of this action. 

The following are some extracts from the 
report of the committee : 

'' It can not be doubted that the circulations 
of a great many advertising mediums are 
greatly exaggerated, and that w^hat the adver- 
tiser is getting for his money is many times an 
unknown quantity. Even the so-called ' known 
circulations ' are known only to the publishers 
in many cases. 

*' However much general advertisers may 
desire to'have personal examination in the cir- 
culation of every publication on their list of ad- 
vertising mediums made, it is impossible for 
each individually to examine the books of such 
statements as publishers are willing to place 
before them to verify the circulation claimed. 
It is a favorite dodge on the part of the pub- 
lishers to state that they are perfectly willing 
to have their books and records examined, well 
knowing that no large advertiser can afford to 
take the time or go to the expense that would 
be required to make such examination of each 
medium which he may patronize." — Advertis- 
ing Experience.

TO HIS TRADE. 

The successful tradesman thrives on advertising. 
He sliould not be expected to Icnow how to buy and 
sell goods, and make ads equally well. Therefore 
he employs an ad-maker. 

Prmters' lek 

Is An Ad=Maker 

On a large scale. It embraces all reputable trades. 
Merchants will do well to subscribe for it, for aid in 
their advertising business. 

It is full of bright, catchy ads, and inspires new 
ideas in the field of advertising — ideas from the 
brains of experienced and successful ad-makers. 
You consult medical works for authority on medi- 
cine, law-books for authority on law — why not an 
Advertising Journal for authority on advertising ? 
Such consultation costs you nothing, provided you 
send for a sample copy. It will result in your sub- 
scription for a year. Only $5.00 a year for advice 
beyond value.

^fh'er<iseme«i.— The Register, evening, Sun- 
day and weekly, is New Haven's oldest and 
strougesr paper. Recognized locally as 
principal paper in city. A liigh-class, politi- 
cal, family and business journal, with a 
circulation varying from 10,000 to 12,0ft0, 
equal to that of all other two or three- 
cent papers in the city combined. The 
Sunday Rkgister has a circulation double 
that of any Sunday newspaper published 
in the State. In residential parts of town 
the Register is taken almost exclusively. 
It is the recognized medium for high-class 
advertising, such as luxuries, financial, lit- 
erature and other similar announcements. 
Daily, 10, 12 and 16 pages; Sunday, 20 and 24 
pages. Three editions dailj^ and Sunday. 
Hoe presses and Mei-genthaler Linotypes; 
finest mechanical equipment in State.

Advertisement. — Tlwee morning papers in 
New Haven : tw^o one cent and one three- 
cent paper, the latter the Journal and 
Courier, is the old family paper; oldest 
daily in Connecticut. It has, we believe, 
more readersthan any other morning paper 
in the city. Its patrons are of a class not 
influenced by sensational methods, but are 
steadfast and the best that can be olitained 
in an intelligent community for a reliable 
newspaper.

BE BOLD. 



A certain department store recently took an entire page in 
a number of afternoon papers. This advertisement contained 
only one item, which was boy?' suits to sell at a price of less than 
$5. I understand that the advertisement cost the house over 
$T,ooo, and I believe it took a good deal of grit on the part of this 
store to put that much money into an advertisement of only one 
single item, and that one upon which they had no opportunity to 
make more than a few cents on each sale. The greater part of 
the advertisement consisted of a picture of the boys' suit. The 
description was in large type and the advertisement was really 
sensational from its size. I believe that this fact had a great 
deal to do with the success of the advertisement, and I do not 
believe that half a page or a quarter of a page would have pro 
duced half or quarter of the results that were produced by the 
page. The boldness of the idea is in itself attractive and com- 
mands attention. My correspondent informed me that the ad- 
vertisement brought a wonderful response, and that if the firm 
had had on hand double the number of suits that they did have, 
they could have easily sold them. Before the day was nearly 
over the entire stock was exhausted, and the profit on the sale 
itself more than paid for the advertising, without considering 
the fact that the boys* clothing department of this firm had been 
indelibly stamped upon the minds of the public generally 
throuofh the mere size of the one advertisement. — Chas. F". 
Jones ^ in Fri?iters' Ink.

THE NEW YORK SPECIAL AGENTS' ORGAN, THE NATIONAL 
ADVERTISER, MAKES THE FOLLOWING COMMENT UPON 
THE METHODS OF THE NEW^SPAPER MEN OF THE THREE 
ENTERPRISING CITIES ABOVE ENUMERATED : 



An amusing story is told of a fastidious waiter who 
would not eat in the restaurant where he worked. The 
food that was good enough for the customers was not good 
enough for him. 

There are newspaper publishers in the country who 
are like this waiter. They are constantly and properly 
singing the praises of newspaper advertising. There is 
nothing like it, they say, for reaching the great body of 
buyers of all sorts of articles, and they are entirely right. 

But they are slow to take their own medicine. The 
very newspaper that devotes ponderous leading editorials 
to the advantages of newspaper advertising, will advertise 
itself by means of circulars. And the same paper will de- 
clare over and over that circular advertising is, of all forms 
of publicity, the most unsatisfactory and relatively the 
most expensive. These weighty considerations do not 
prevent the newspapers from sending circulars to general 
advertisers

The advertiser who has nothing in particular to advertise, and who inserts a three-line 
ad in Printers' Ink, to appear once a month or thereabouts, sometimes pays 

the price with a feeUng that advertising produces no adequate 
result, and that his money was wasted : but the advertiser 
who buys a page in Printers' Ink, in a choice posi- 
tion, and tells a new and interesting story every 

week, for a whole year, may generally be 

counted on to renew his order. He

THE WESTERN 
TRADE JOURNAL 



Is now in its 26th year, and with an average weekly 
circulation of 23,337 copies during 1897, confidently 
appeals to the Industrial, Inventive, Commercial, Manu- 
facturing, Mining and Financial Interest of the 
United States for a continuation of the favors it has 
enjoyed in the past, promising with its enlarged 
opportunities, better returns than ever before, on all 
business with which it may be favored. 
The Wkstern Trade Journal is the oldest paper of 
its class published in the West, and reaches a larger num- 
ber of new readers, each issue, than any weekly com- 
mercial paper printed in Chicago, and is without a rival 
in its field. Rates reasonable, correspondence solicited,

The TIMES is the oflacial organ for both city and county. The Weekly 
Times, as an advertising medium is one of the most valuable in Central Illi- 
nois, while that of the Daily is as valuable as that of any in a city the size 
of Pekin, which has 10,000 inhabitants. A glance at the advertising col- 
umns is sufficient to convince all of the jusiice of its claims. The Daily 
Times is the only evening paper in Pekin that does not run a patent inside. 
The plant is one of the finest in the State for a town the size of Pekin, being 
new and thoroughlv up to date. Rates furnished on application.
