A dollar bill may carry to its receiver the vilest infection. It is a sponge that takes up filth and disease germs from every hand through which it passes and from everybody with whom I comes in contact. We hope our delinquent subscribers are not holding back their dollar bills for fear they may carry some contagious disease to us.  If they are, we assure them we are safe, having had the mumps, scarlet fever, small pox and a variety of other diseases. So bring along your dollar bills and will well give you a nice clean receipt for them.
