Last week (we forgot to mention) The Herald entered its 13th volume. In 1889 the paper was started by J. Y. Schenck, who sold it several years later to the Hunter boys and who in turn sold it to J. S. Hancock, from whose estate the present management purchased it early in 1901. During these times it has seen many changes, both of itself and the town. The past four years have shown a wonderful growth in both. Under the present ownership the paper has been fairly prosperous, considering all conditions and feels much like thanking our many patrons for their indulgence, business and kindness.
