Publisher of tha "Ranggr and Lone Star,"
TT7TTH this date (October 1st, "1355)
V Y closes the third year of the Lone Star,
from the time it was commenced by Mr. J.
Wynn, from whom we purchased the office
and subscription books. Our subscription list
is very large, and our outlay for paper enor-
mously heavy, especially during these hard
times." There are hundreds of our subscri-
bers who have not paid us one farthing .since
we commenced the -publication of the paper.
Large numbers of them are no doubt, clever
gentlemen, aud to offend or to part-with them
would be a source of regret, but if they do
not pay up the amount of their indebtedness,
wo will be compelled to place their accounts
in the hands of an officer for collection, and
erase their names from our subscription list.
We should not do this, were we rich and able j
to carry on the publication of the Ranger
