As uone of the members of the committee are subscribers to the Aröus we hope that some friend will show each of them a copy, that they may have actual personal knowledge of our compliance with their request. Seriously, wouldn't it be well for our many friends, of many societies and orders, in different sections of the county, who never hesitate to make drafts on our columns, to show their appreciation of our public spirit and geuerosity by sending in 81. 60 each and ordering their names entered on our mail book. There is auch a thing as " riding a free horse to doath." S. or N". B.-We don't care what the politics or religión of a subscriber is. It is his name and 81.50 we want. And if ho can't get tho full worth of his money in what the Argtts will dish up to hira weekly, he will prove himself a dull reader.
