THE JOURNAL FOR 1872!
A Rare Chance to Secure the Leaz!ing
Literature of the Day
CHEAPNESS COMBINED WITH SWAT STIALITY
Every head of a family, in the country, shan't]
subscribe and pay for his county paper. Ile
that attempts to raise a family without giving.
it the advantage of a newspaper, in this en
lightened and christian age, is criminal y neg
ligent. We think that every man, without
exception, raising a family, should spend from
Ms dollars to TWENTY-FITE dollars a year,
according to his means, for this kind of edu
cation, and we hope to lire to see the day
when there w.ll not be an exception to L.is
rule in Huntingdon county.
We want every body in the county to take
the JOURNAL, we don't care what party you
belong to—Republican, Democrat or Temper
ance man. If you are a Republican, we arc
with you heart and soul; if a Democrat, you
ought to know what we hare to say about
you, so that you can act and vote intelligentsy,
and if you are a temperance man, we assure
you that no one will administer severer blown
upon the whiskey business than the Jouns.u.
will, and if the e - hiskey men don't like it, why
let them do as they do with whiskey that in
distasteful, take the less of it. We believe
newspapers, like preachers and school teach
ers, should be on the side of morality and good
order. But the JOURNAL will uphold only that
which we, in nur humble judgment, think to
be right, regardless of consequences.
The development of the county, in every re
spect, will be its constant and undeviating aim,
and in this respect it will be to every ma in
interest to subscribe for it. We want to build
up Manufactures, Mechanics and the Arts on
every baud, and by subscribing for the Jouu-
NAL you assist and encourage us in our design.
The next year will be an eventful one; a
President, Vice President, Governor and Con
gress are to be elected and a Constitutional Con
vention will be selected to remodel the Con
stitution of the State. We have outgrown the
old one, and if you want to keep posted you
must have the papers. Take the JOURNAL first.
and if you won't take it, in the name of intel
ligence, take some other oue, but don't be
without the news.
For the purpose of distributing good Litera
ture, in connection with the JOURNAL, which
we think good enough of itself, we have ar
ranged to furnish the following-Hauled leadmg
periodicals, jointly for the remarkably low
price stated below:
Phrenological Jonmal and Life Illastratcal

any of our subscribers, who hove paid up,
desire to take advantar of these rates and
will signify the same to us, we wit give them
the same terms. We do this so that there may

our enterprise--the publication of this pa

the tele2x..ph, the intelligeree office, the

cured the services of a man to go, from
house to house, throughout the county, to

not expect him to do it for nothing, on the

one for supposing that you wanted it done
on such conditions, and yet you ask print
ers to do this, year in and year out, , You
know that one line, in the editorial or local
columns of a newspaper. or ordinary circu

than you could be presented to in years.—
No wonder, then, that you seek our space,
knowing its value as you do. And if it is
so valuable to yot, is it not worth payin,;
Are not printers tuiserablestupiai to use
their facilities f'r reaching the public, write
up unknown, and very awn third-rate men,
without compensation ? It seems to Us
that it is a gre.,t presumption for any one
:o expect any thing of the kind, and yet
nine tenths of the paticians, of the day,
expo to be constantly kept before the
peg ple in this manner. Yes, hundreds of
men, who would never be heard ~f outide
of the liu,its of their election precinct, were
it nit for printers' ink, are made in this
way. We w int it distinctly und,rstood
hat we are not around mak:ng men out of

are doing it, all over the land, Oily pa •

he has been asked to p.iy file dollars for
printing tickets, which w.uld hardly pay

but he expected the hors and emolu

his pat. This is the yearly experience.
The printer alone, who must buy every
thing, ply h's hinds and rent, is expected
to furnish all this wirh.:nit c:impensation.
