After Friday’s issue, the Glasgow Times will be used as a weekly paper, appearing Thursday only.  The reasons are many, chief ones of which are:

  • Loss of one of the associate editors – gone to do war work
  • Threatened loss of the remaining associate editor and business manager – also going to war.
  • Loss of linotype operator, scarcity and advance in price of newsprint.
  • Scarcity of printer, and many more good reasons prompt this unwilling step.

With the Times it is simply a question of QUIT OR GO TO A WEEKLY.

Paper has gone out of sight, labor is up and everything we buy has gone up, and yet we have been publishing the paper at the same price as when everything was at the bottom.  Now we are losing money on subscription, depending on advertising and job work to make it up.  But most of our business men refuse to advertise and all economize in joby work.  The result is that we have to get more for out paper or do something else.  Subscription received through November will be $1.00 per year, but on December first, the Republican will be $1.50 per year.

So far as Glasgow is concerned, the Flu situation is decidedly improved.  The turning of the Grade School building into a hospital was a God-send to the poorer classes of town.  About 40 cases, perhaps more, have been treated there, and there has not been one death.  There is no way of telling how many lives were saved by this move of the enterprising and philanthropic citizens of town.
