“Ten cents straight will be charged for all obituary notices to all business men who do not advertise while living. Delinquent subscribers will be charged fifteen cents per line for an obituary notice. Advertisers and cash subscribers will receive as good a send-off as we are capable of writing, without any charge whatsoever. Better send in your subscription, as the hog cholera is abroad in the land. —ALTOONA (KANSAS) TRIBUNE, JANUARY 1928”
