MANY SURPRISED CANDI-
Were Astonished at Their
High Standing. Should Now
Go After Grand
The first standing of the candidates
published last week surprised every-
one; especially the candidates who
were not working very hard and had
taken little interest in the contest
found that thev had many more votes
to their credit than they had expected
and should now try for the grand
prize. You cannot expect your friends
to assist you if you do not show
some enthusiasm and ask for their as-
sistance. Readers do not care to de-
posit their votes unless they are posi-
tive you are in the race to stay and
subscribers in the rural districts have
remarked that thev were anxiously
awaiting for a candidate to call and
collect on their subscription or coupon
while many others are holding their
coupons to see who the live candidates
are before voting them.
It is to the interest of every candi-
date to make a thorough cavass and
not overlook any of your friends
this vicinity or in the far away states.
Many af your friends and relatives
who have moved to other parts would
be pleased to send in their subscrip-
tions if you would on Iv mention the
\ fact to them as they are still interested
in this community.
Each and every candidate should
make up their mind immedatelv to
take advantage of the exceptional vote
offer published last week. Do not
hesitate, start now. The extra vote
offer is yours if you only try. The
time is short, the reward is great, and
you cannot afford to wait another
minute. Early action and determin-
ed work are the producers of the
sought for and desired results. It is
up to you so get busy.
