The News was an independent paper of four pages, sized 24"x35", published every Friday with a subscription of $1.50 yearly. It was established in 1875 by J.K. Lowrie who was both editor and publisher. The paper had a circulation of about 450. At the time the paper was competing with the Hardin county Democrat (ed. D.S. Fisher, est. 1840), the Kenton Republican (ed. A.W. Miller, est. 1847), the Ada Commercial (ed. James E. Fisher, est. 1872), and the Dunkirk Standard (ed. S.B. Davis, est. 1875).
