§ 8007. Printers. Except where otherwise prescribed by law, the
proprietor of a newspaper is entitled for publishing a summons, notice,
order or other advertisement, required to be published by law or by the
order of any court, or of the clerk of a court, to twenty-nine cents per
line of a column width not less than ten pica ems, provided that in
computing such charge per line the line shall average at least five
words for each insertion in newspapers having a circulation of less than
two thousand five hundred; twenty-nine and one-half cents per line for
newspapers having two thousand five hundred or more circulation and less
than five thousand; thirty and one-half cents per line for newspapers
having five thousand or more circulation and less than seven thousand
five hundred; thirty-one and one-half cents per line for newspapers
having seven thousand five hundred or more circulation and less than ten
thousand; thirty-two and one-half cents per line for newspapers having
ten thousand or more circulation and less than fifteen thousand; and
three and one-half cents per line, in addition to the thirty-two and
one-half cents for the initial fifteen thousand circulation, for each
additional five thousand circulation up to thirty-five thousand
circulation and one and one-half cents per line for each additional five
thousand possessed by a newspaper. To all of the above rates nine cents
per line shall be added to the initial insertion charge of each separate
advertisement. To all of the above rates for the initial insertion eight
cents per line shall also be added for tabular matter or intricate
composition. In reckoning line charges allowance shall be made for date

full lines where the same are set to conform to the usual rules of
composition. Display advertising shall be charged agate measurement

newspaper making claim for compensation under the provisions of this
section must be established at least one year and entered in the post
office as second class matter.
