THE "BARGOED JOURNAL CHANGED. AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCE- MENT. We have fought a good fight and kept the faith," was one of thf loutadaUous of the wise men ot old, and although it is a long way to look back to thoae happy days, the same principle has permeated (and we say it without egotism) the proprietors of the Bargoed Journal," but now we are RELUCTANTLY COM- PELLED, by the exigencies of the I war, to make a change. The crisis in the paper trade has become acute, imports during the past few months having been considerably reduced, whilst the cost of paper has almost quadrupled, and will continue to advance. The situation has, conse- quently, become serious, and the abnormal increase iu cost in the production of the paper has seriously handicapped the commercial side of the undertaking. We have not, up to the present, followed in the wake of many London and Provincial newspapers by increasing the charge. During the existence of the contracts made some time ago, readers of this Journal have had the benefit of those agreements by the price per issue being maintained at its normal state. Now, however, our stocks having been depleted, a fresh supply of paper becomes necessary, and the abnormal advance, made recently, with the re- stricted supply, has sent up the cost of production considerably over 75 per cent. to what it was a year ago. Under these circumstances, the Proprietors are reluctantly compelled to give notice that on and after MAY the 25th the charge per copy will be increased to ONE PENNY. In making this change, we also beg to intimate that the paper will be slightly 'enlarged as a compensating margin. We take the opportunity of thanking our readers and advertisers for their support and co-operation in the past, and feel assured that, having regard to the abnormal conditions prevailing, they will appreciate the difficult position in which newspaper publishers are placed, as the result of the great shortage of papers supplies.
