HOW IT WILL BE DONE
FOR EVERY CENT paid on subscription one vole will be credited to
the lady who turns it in. No subscription will be taken for less than
fifty cents. Contestants will be required to turn in all subscriptions at
least once a week that new subscribers mev be put on the list and old ones
given proper credit. Contestants who desire to enter can obtain neces-
sary material by applying at this office or writing for the same. The
piano will be on exhibit in Jake Collar's store as soon as it arrives from
the factory which will probably be this week. This instrument is recog
nized the United States over as one of the very best made. The lady
who wins it will obtain it on her merit. The judges in the contest will
be Ex-County Treasurer J. A McLaughlin, H. M. Johnson, president
First National bank, and Col. R. V. Hoffman. This selection of prom-
inent men is in itself a surety that the affair will be conducted honorably
and the best contestant he awarded the prize. It all depends upon how
