One of the reasons why newspapers fold, 1917.

We are waiting for the payment of some of the subscribers of the Hoku o Hawaii. The well being of the “Laborers” depends upon your keeping in mind the life of the newspaper.

[For as long as there have been newspapers, it seems there have been this sort of reminder to those delinquent in paying for their subscriptions.]
