March 20, 1890 — Mr. D. Bradford is now in Baltimore buying material for a new paper soon to be started in this place, to be known, we believe, as the Industrial Union, and to be devoted to the interests of the Farmers Alliance of the Valley counties and of Madison and Rappahannock.
Mr. Bradford is a practical printer of long experience, and has been a resident of this county for the last 10 years, employed for several years on the typographical corps of The Courier.
He is a deserving gentleman, and The Courier has nothing but good wishes for both him and his enterprise.
We hold to the optimistic doctrine that this big world is just generous enough to give a living to every man (and newspaper, too) that has the brains to bind it and the honest hands to earn it.
