The Great Popular Preachers Contest
Goes Merrily on
This Week Rev. X.. M. Fenwick of Batavia
Heads the ProcessionAre you
Working: Hard for Your
Pastor? Who'll Win?
The rivalry in THE APPEAL most popu
lar preacher contest is becoming warm
er. One lot of 23 "ballots came for Rev.
L. C. Sheafe but later on 60 ballots were
received for Rev. L. M. Fenwick of Ba
tavia, 111., placing him at the head.
Just as we are going to press a bundle
of ballots came in for Rev. F. Lomack of
Duluth, Minn., changing his position on
the list from near the bottom to the
eighth place. The friends of Rev. Lo
mack have shown their fealty in a man
ner which the friends of other preachers
would do well to emulate.*
The friends of the ministers have be
gun to work in earnest. There is rea
son to believe that some will hold back
votes. There is no reason for and
nothing can be gained by this course.
This contest is a perfectly fair one and
will be to the end.
Request is made that those sending in
any number of votes will please write
plainly upon the outside of the envelope
the numbei of votes sent. They will
also be careful to cut out the ballot, no
more and no less, trimming it neatly to
the line. They will likewise avoid roll
ing them. Observance of these three
simple injunctions will greatly abridge
the labors at this oifice.
The interest in the result in some quar
ters is extraordinary. Many of the
friends of the preachers are greatly con
cerned as though it meant a suit of
clothes or a cane or a portrait for them
personally. They employ all their elo*
quen to persuade friends that their
own particular candidate is the best and
most deserving of popular support.
The name of the candidates appear in
the order of their standing. The first
in the list has received the largest num
ber of votes, the second the next largest,
and so on throughout the entire list, the
one at the bottom having received the
least number. If your candidate is well
down on the list it indicates that it will
be necessary for your friends to bestir
yourselves on his behalf if you would
have him win.

THE APPEAL can not in common fair

The first is to make selection of a
