Monung The Union Recorder, with this issue fhanc- - its press-day from Thur«dny afternoon to Wednesday afternoon, heinc issued through the mails Thurs- <Uv morning. The change was deeided upon by .j, e managers of the paper this week, Jheir ren*on for this change being to p ivo their advertisers benefit of the full circulation of paper. Realizing that many of the people in the trad ing territory were not receiving the paper in time to take advantage of th* Saturday bargains offered by the merchants, the date was changed. The Recorder, with a circulation well over 2.000, goes into the Miiledgeville trading territory, covreing pratically every home to be reached by the merchants here. Toomsboro, Gordon, McIntyre, Devcreaux, Haddock, Ivey and the districts where a large per cent of the trade to this city drawn are thoroughly circulated by the paper. Studying their field continuously and keeping in active touch with the trend of both reader .and advertiser, the editors of paper reached their conclusion to make this change after a complete survey, and believe it to be of benefit both to reader and ad vertiser. With the full interest of the many hundreds of people the paper serves at heart, the management keeps it self alert to the necessary improve ments to give all concerned the best ■ of service. Brondckifng obr field, continioudy we endeavor to serve every interest in this and surround ing counties. The p.-egre— of the iwper is xital to the growth of Miiledgeville and Baldwin county was the opinion of the editors and' being conspcious of this fact they ask the co-operation of their clientile which includes every reader.
