EACH 'VOTING DISTRICT
WILL HAVE A SEPARATE
GROUP OF LIKE AWARDS
Contest Will Be Virtually Four
The city has been divided Into four
voting districts, and each win have Its
own set of awards. This Is for the pur
pose of equalizing toe distribution of
awards among the people of the different
sections of. the city.
The four set of awards will be Iden
tlcal, and will be given to the contest'
ants In the various districts procuring
the greatest number of votes. This
makes the contest practically four sepa
rate competitions. In addition to these
awards there will be a grand award of a
X3.000 house and lot to tne contestant
with the greatest number of votes In the
enure District of Columbia, irrespective
of voung districts.
The district divisions have reference
merely to the awards and In no wise re
late to the methods of obtaining votes.
Contestants may procure votes In any
part of the city, lrrespecuve of whether

The Herald should be read carefully
every day. The advertisements are scat

merely to watch the classified lists of
advertisers. By reading eaeh of the ad
vertisement closely and thoughtfully, the
contestant will get an accurate know
Iedee of what the var'ous merchants
have to sell, and when It is necessary to
purchase any of these articles, he will
know exactly where to go, and not only
get what he wants, but procure the votes

The object of the contest Is to stimu
late businesa and to direct the purchas
ing public to those concerns where they
can get the best returns for their money.
The effect of the eompeUtion will be to
Increase newspaper adverUsIng, to make
the public acquainted with the leading
retail merchants and manufacturers op
erating in the city, and to educate the
public to patronize these enterprising es
tablishments. The Herald recommends
friends, with the request that they pat
ronize the establishments and products
and save the votes for them. By follow
ing out this plan, tne contestant will not
ba reaulred to soend a cent to obtain
votes. It Is no trouble to the friends.
In asking a person to assist him in tne
competition, a contestant Is doing a
valuable service to that person. For by
patronizing these merchants and manu
facturers, the public will be sure to get
the best quality at the most reasonable
