Is the only illustrated newspaper that has ever been launched in Cumberland, and is the second halfpenny illustrated newspaper in England. The proprietor arranged and designed the paper with the clear and definite aim of making it a success. That it is already.
"No other paper published in the county is so smart as your "Star", writes a gentleman well-known in literary circles.
We intend making it much smarter yet. See this week's issue and next. We have now almost perfected an arrangement by which a sketch of any local event or subject, or a drawing, or photograph, can be taken and transferred to metal ready for printing in the "Star" in a few hours.
Ere long there will be some local pictures in our pages that will astonish the inhabitants.
