How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 March 1898
How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The nowspaper man needs it, and it help3 him to pay his printer for sotting up the thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therofore, if you want a good newspaper — ono that will still help your town and district — give all your printing to the C.R. Advocate, the only paper published in the ...

My Sentiments Tew. &nbsp; (BY SOUTHERNITE.) Since my last attempt to popularise your jour- nal among the harrystocracy of Maclean, I've been lying low, to see if any demand would be made for more of tho same. But as no demand has beon made, I decided to supply tho same before hand, and as I pick up somo curious in formation at times, I have littlo doubt that your epaco may aB well bo tilled by yours truly as by 'Clinking Cymbal.' Every day makes it more apparent that the good old 'keep it dark'1 brigade made the greatest mistake of their lives in deciding to ex clude the press from their meetings. Tho Lord only knows what induced them to adopt such a course, for,as was pointed out by the Advocate, if there is nothing to conceal, why this thus ness ? The action taken by that journal in the late dispute is highly spoken of by nine out of every ton porsonsone meets, and everyono is at a loss to understand tho bitterness expressed towards tho journal mentioned by tho majority of...
