Duncombe Sun Goes Under

Has Yielded to the Force of Adverse Circumstances

Publication is Suspended.

Editor Stebbins Finds the Burden of Debt Too Great to Be Endured.

Word has reached the city that the Duncombe Sun, which was once one of hte luminaries of Webster County journalism, has ceased to shine, and that the genial talks of Sunrise Bill will hereafter be in vain. After a plucky struggle to keep up, Editor Stebbins has been obliged to yield to the pressure of debt, and his paper has discontinued publication.

All of Mr. Stebbins’ editorial brethren over the county will regret that the pressure of circumstances was too much for him to withstand. He had been giving Duncombe a good local paper, and no one is more sorry to hear of his misfortune that is the Messenger force. Mr. Stebbins still remains in Duncombe.
