An Anniversary.

Ten years ago today, on June 13th, 1891, appeared the first issue of THE REGISTER.

During those ten years, notwithstanding serious vicissitudes, the paper has appeared regularly every week and has steadily advanced in public favor, and, we believe, in usefulness. Its circulation has been constantly extending and the influence for good which it has endeavored to exercise has been more and more appreciated by those whose appreciation is of value.

For the time to come THE REGISTER will endeavor to maintain the reputation which it has acquired during the ten years of its existence. In the future as in the past its advertising columns will be clean, its news items trustworthy, its literary matter elevating and its editorial opinions honest. While it will ever avoid the sensational, its readers may rest assured that no event of importance will take place, either at home or abroad, of which they will not be informed.

For the co-operation and assistance of contributors, the patronage of advertisers, the sympathy and substantial support of readers and subscribers, by which we have been enabled to make the experiment of ten years ago the success that it has been, we tender our heartfelt thanks and, in the language of commerce, would ask a continuance of the same.
