What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Sheridan Party States That Jeffer- son Valley is Getting Class of Advertising Has Needed For a Long Time. /Iva .different business seen yanked out their ads last week, giving as a reason that they could not afford to keep it up. As the NEWS has taken issue on nearly every question of moment to the valley so far, we think sticiOng in a word or two occasionally in our own behalf is only right and proper, for fear that this epidemic of killing off ads. will extend too far. In calling attention to the fact that a good, live local paper is of inestimable value to any com- munity and deserves the suppor of everyone, we do not believe in getting sore about . the matter but hope to get the people to see our side of s the question ins nice way. History of Country Papers The history of most country papers does not make interestinr reading. After a town consists of 300 or 400 noses, some printer hungry for a new field will rush in and start a newspaper. Business issen, „ gletse, d with the novelty of being represented by a local sheet spread cOnmiderable printer's ink till the new begins to wear off and then all but R few stop advertis- ing. The publisher having started off auspiciously and with the blare of trumpets puts his best foot for- ward and doles out quite& respect- able rag till he sees support falling sway from him on all sides, then he begins to get grouch' and says nasty things about the community in his paper. Then is the begin- ning of the last of Mr. Grouchy Publisher. Two years later when thi traveling salesman of a boot- jack factory stops in that town, landlord of the hoes)l says: f' s ‘Ve hal nee-spepee here for awhile but the proprietor didn't seem ki make it go. I don't see lxv a paper wouldn't pay in this place.\ This Is Good Field Jefferson valley is a good field for a paper and we mean to mal , e it stick. So long RA the NEWS re- tains it present management the readers may be assured of our best efforts. Just because five ads were pulled out does not make u. - sore, also we would be able tA preserve our eq uarrami ty even after 10 displayers were killed, but at honestly believe that a terrines; man who fails to support the home paper strikes a direct blow at his own business. Ads benefit In a direct and an indirect way. They bring customers straight to the merchant and it supports the publisher while he attacks the mall orde business. She*n Man Talks The editAir e News was in Sheridan the other day and while there a certain gentleman in com- menting on our paper to us said: \Jefferson Valley is gaining more favorable publicity through its present paper, r than that section ever did before. Yours; is a good country but it has lacked just the kind of advertising that it )8 now getking. The ' ''Boulder Monitor has slammed Jefferson valley and Whitehall till actually people be- gan to think the community was the tail end of nowhere. That idea is rapidly subsiding. I notice you have a nice lot of ads.
