The “freedom of the press” is a very real thing

keeps them posted on what’s actuaUy going on,
just so long will their liberties, their rights and

The Mesquiter's Last $1 Fair - Week Bargain
Once again it is Fair-time and with, it comes our last $1 Fair
Week Bargain, which includes a three pound sack of American Beauty
Flour to each new or renewal subscription and a pound, of Admiration
Coffee to each new subscriber. Other valuable prizes for Fair-week sub-
scribers include three large sacks of American Beauty Flour, a beautiful
Boudoir Lamp and a Zenith radio.
In these days of advancing prices there is no community in America
in which a price of two cents a week, $1 a year, for a weekly newspaper
can he justified. Two cents a week, $1 a year, is not an adequate price
for what the Mesquiter offers. A letter from one friend to another costs
three cents for postage. The Mesquiter is a weekly letter containing in-
formation about relatives, friends, and acquaintances of those who receive
it. When it does that job it is certainly worthy of a reasonable com-
jTbe bacon that cost 15c a pound last winter sells for 30 cents
pound now. Living costs are up all along the line, therefore, the sub-
scription price of the Mesquiter must keep pace with paper costs and other
increases if we are to continue to serve the eastern part of Dallas County
The addition of one cent a week to the subscription price from all
subscribers living within the state and two cents a week to the subscription
price from all subscribers living outside the state will make it possible
for a largfer and better newspaper. The Mesquiter’s subscription rate after
the Fair will therefore be $1.50 a year within the state and $2 outside
Now is the time to subscribe or pay your renewal! Don’t wait until all
the prizes are gone and the price is advanced. We’ll see you at the Fair.
