The first count in the contest of
the Bulletin newsboys was made on
Wednesday and it will be seen from
(he record that the boys have piled
up a good score and are taking in
(crest in the competition.
Each boy in the contest has a num
and it will be noted that the total
Bulletin newsboys runs up into
the seventies, although the little tci
lows on the end of the line do not
get much further than to have their
names in the paper. As a matter of
fact, these little fellows are the hus
tlers of future years. That is the
wav the Honolulu newsbovs start In.
First they sell one or two for the big
boys. Then they buy one or two for
themselves, and finally as the big
boys drop out and "go to work" the

honored list of "office sellers."
It is a rule of the game that no
boy shall allow another to assist him.
It is impossible to vouch whether this
.ule is strictly followed, but. on the
whole, they deal as fairly as boys
can when they don't always stop to
think. The count follows:
