the other extra prizes I received during the eonttst. I thank you
very much for all of them and also for the kind and honest treat-
ment I received throughout the contest.
Yours very respectfully

It isn't often that a piano is given
away free in this town. It isn't often
that silverware, gold rings, mesh bags,
jewel boxes, post cards, silver spoons,
diamond rings Bnd gold watches are
given away to young ladies for their
assistance in work that is so easy as
getting subscriptions for the New Era
arid Missouris greatest farm paper
Saturday December 16th will have
an important bearing on the awarding
of the piano and other grand prizes.
20,000 bonus votes are going to be
given for every $10.00 turned in on
subscriptions. Those who are support-
ing the young ladies should get out
and work for them between now and
5 o'clock Saturday night. It is votes
that count in this contest, and remem-
ber that 20,000 votes for every $10.00
turned in Saturday night will count up
In soliciting subscription, do not let
anybody think they are helping you by
giving you money explain to them that
they are getting their moneys worth
in The New Era and Profitable Farm-
ing, both for the price of The New Era
alone. They cannot get those two
papers together after the close of the
contest. They are getting more than
their moneys worth. The only thing
you want to do is to subscribe while
this contest is going on, and favor you
by turning over their votes to you
The ChrUtmas Number of Profitable
Farming will be out December 15th.
This will be one of the handsomest
farm papers published, and everyone
should be sure to get it. No young
lady should waste a moment between
now and the close. This beautiful
piano is too valuable a prize to let get
away from you.
