    That's very unnatural.

    It was advertised in your newspaper the day before yesterday.
    It was advertised in your newspaper two days ago.

    I wouldn't use "edition of your newspaper" for anything other than "today's", "tomorrow's" or "yesterday's".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
