Sad Drowning of Little Boy

a large number of carp were

Will Continue Free Paper
Last October tho publisher of
the Review decided that for n
period of six months tho paper
would be placed in the various
homos of St. Johns free of
charge. Tho main object was to
make every homo familiar with
the homo paper, in expectation
that people fretting used to hav
ing tho paper regularly would
.probably want to have it contin
ued. Tho p an was carried out.

upon tho expressed dosiro of
some of the leading advertisers.
it was decided to continue the
plan for three months longer,
which was done, and with last
weeks issue the Review has been
delivered free in St. Johns for
nine months. In that time tho
cost of news print has advanced
about half a dozen tunes: ink,
distribution, etc., has also made
a marked advance in price. On
distribution wc have three men
who aro licensed distributors
employed and it takes practically
all dav Saturday to make the
distribution complete. Adver
tisers have found tho free paper
to be such a splendid advertis
ing medium that they aro loath
to have us return to a subscrip
tion basis, which of course would
mean a smaller circulation. Hut
the increased cost of publishing
and distribution is a problem to
bo fully considered. However
wo have decided to continue tho
free paper for an indefinite time,
but advertising rates will be in
creased to somo extent. Tho
coat for those advertising reg
ularly, however, will not be in
creased at this time, but all ad
vertising for a period of less
than G months will be increased.
The paper will bo placed in each

sons will be given an opportunity
to subscribe, with the guuranteu
that if tho free paper is discon
tinued at any time, for tho re
maining portion of the year the

Sam's carriers. Tho rate of sub
scription will bo one dollar per

on a subscription basis in St.
Johns the subscription price will
be $1.50 per year. Those who
care to subscribe mny do so. It
is an entirely voluntary matter.
Tho paper will be delivered at
the home just the same. In
caH of those who bv reason of
diving on the outskirts of St.
j Johns fail to be reached by the
carriers sometimes and desire to
have tho same delivered through
the mails, may be accommodated
by paying one year in advance.

matter of course.
