special prizes to be given away

every effort any young lady in
Davenport and vicinity can put
forth. Everything in this con
test will be absolutely fair, and
the interest of every candidate
will be carefully safe guarded.
The piano will be placed on dis-
play in a few days, and all who
are interested are invited to come
in aud inspect the instrument
and pass judgment upon it. This
piano is made by the Schiller
Piano Company, who are fam-
our for their splendid instru
meats all over the United States
Its greatest quality is its tone,
although the case is of splendid
workmanship and latest design-
All those who are intending to
wink should call at the office im-
mediately and secure receipt
books, sample copies of Profit®
ble Farming and the New Era
and start in to Work immediate-
ly. The New Era already has
a large circulation through
out Lincoln county, and as a
consequence you should have no
trouble in securing subscriptions
to Lincoln county's greatest
weekly. The first few subscript-
ions that you will get will l>e the
hardest ones to secure. People
will hesitate until they see that
you are in earnest and that you
ate going to work to win the
piano. Be sure and read the ad
in this issue.
The present list of special
prizes consists of post cards and
exquisitely beautiful jewel boxes
These prizes will be given to
every girl as soon as she turns
in ten dollars in subscriptions.
The set of post cards are yours
for one subscription and the
jewel box for ten subscriptions.
This does not mean eleven sub-
scriptions, but just ten for the
two prizes. No such opportuni-
ty has been presented to the
young ladies of Davenport and
vicinity in many a year. It
means an exciting time for the
next ten or twelve weeks, and
it means that the young lady
who wins the Bachman piano or
the diamond ring will be mighty
well paid for all their work done
But there will be other special
prizes to award all other girls in
the contest for the work they
