and the usual nardon more than usual
entertainment: pageants, parades, trium
phal and memorial arches, with music
'galore; one feature, however, the State
ceremony proper, will be so unique as
to merit brief description.
"West Virginia will be fifty years old
June 20 at exactly IS o'clock noon. Around
this moment has been grouped a com
memorative service, at which It Is pro
posed to re-enact the stirring scenes of
fifty 5 ears aco. thin accompanied witn
bitterness, but now as a great family
and friends, showing that while West
Virginia may be the only spot on the
. man that remains of the civil war. no
rancor remains In the hearts of her
While this will bring to mind the old
times, science has been called up to
bring the ceremony Itself up to the min

the world the people of an area of
300 by 400 miles will be enabled, without
leaving their homes, to hear even- word
and sound of the ceremony enacted at

the latest developments In electric science
been called Into use, but- the State has

here Thursday and Friday under the
auspices of the American Automobile As
The gathering will be a most Important
one. since Its aim is to secure Federal aid
in the constructing of a comprehensive
a. KVBtem of roads stretching clear acros
The attitude of Congress toward this
project was reflected in the appointment
of a Joint committee from the senate
. and House to look into the matter. The
committee, of which Senator Jonathan
Hourne is the chairman, was given 5.000
to help In earning on its Investiga
tion. On the msht of the fclh there will be
an open meeting held under the jomi
auspices of the National Grange, the
Chamber of Commerce of the United

Association Senator Itourne has been
inv ited to preside over this meeting
This will, perhaps, be the most inter
esting session of the convention One of
the features will be an illustrated ad
dress by Thomas J. Tjnan. warden of
the Colorado State penitentlar. Mr.
Tynan has built more roads with con
vict labor than anj other man in the
Vnited States. And one of the Interest
ing facts about Warden Tjnan is that he
has Inaugurated the honor sv stem among
his prison laborers They work on the

The National Grange will have a
spokesman in the person of C S. Stet

These wires are to be connected with
a mammoth, especially erected, recelvine;
board. Into which the President of the
United States, the Governor of the State,
the speakers of the day, the poet .who
composed the ode, and the musclan and
the singer who olced the song, will
speak; and their voices will be carried
over these wires to every city, village,
and hamlet of the State, where similar
appliances are installed, reproducing
every intonation and note of the voices
of those at the central station. A great
band of 200 pieces will accompany a
chorus of 1.000 voices singing the new
State song composed for the occasion.
The leading stanzas to be sung by the
choir at Wheeling, and chorus at five or
six other cities, by pre-concerted ar
rangement, will sing the succeeding
verses: the whole State listening to the
performance of each verse allotted to
the several stations, and then as a
wind-up the population of the State win
sing In unison under the baton beat of
the chler director of music, producing,
It la believed In unison, a telepathic,
emotional heart throb that has never
been equalled on theprinciple that where
tw o or three are gathered toeether . In
one name, the spirit will be in their
midst, and so where three or four hinv
dred thousand people are gathered to
gether in one name and with one thought
the souls of all will be brought Into tune.
The President, Governor and staff, all
living ex-Governors, and all those who
participated In the preliminary proceed
lngs and the final ceremonies creating
the State are to come from near and
far as gueJts. and at the expense of the
State, thus Illustrating that "Ole Vlr-
glnny" hospitality Is still Inbred In the
sons of the hills of West Virginia.

The slogan, "Herald contest votes here,"
attracted crowds of buyers who would
not otherwise, perhaps, have gone to any
particular store, and it has resulted In a
general sentiment of satisfaction and
praise for The Herald.
The three-storj building at Tit Thir
teenth 8treet Northwest has been filled
with beautiful things of everv descrip
tion, and while the house und lot and the
autos could not be seen there, all tho
other awards were visible and were great
ly admired by those who dropped In to
look them over. The walls were deco
rated with the rugs draperies, and pi
tures, and the pianos, furniture, and
ever thing else have been kent In open
view and In beautiful condition by the
Boost for Itnslaess.
This contest ma) aptlv be described
as "a boost for business " The know!
edge that one could get the voting
coupons for any purchase, no matter how
small, was a big incentive, and brought
the refill dealer a business otherwise
unavailable. Big advertising In a big
medium alnavs brings big results, and I
strongly shown In this contest. The
awards are big and beautiful und
touched the spring of ambition alwav
to be found in the human breast, and
kept alive the longing for these hand
some returns for money expended
These awards are far and away the
nest and highest ever offered by any
paper In the South The fact that the
best class of manufacturers and dealers
In this part of the world are represented
Is a guarantee of the quality and beauty
or tnese awards.

sometimes little known to Olivers, but
their advertisement through The Herald
not only gave them a name, but created
a widespread demand, and It Is safe to
say that hundreds of housekeepers and
others are more than satisfied with their
purchases, and certainly the Increase In
trade must be a matter of Infinite satis
faction to the dealers.
To Announce Winners oon.
The work of winding up the details of
the contest began Immediately after the
end on Friday night, and contestants will
be notified of the awards Just as soon
as that work is finished.
There are bushels of voting coupons,
labels, and packages to be counted; they
are piled In all parts of the rooms de
voted to the contest and it will be the
work of several dajs to get them count
ed and tabulated. Ever thing Is being
pushed as rapidly as Is consistent with a
careful and accurate count, and It is as
vet Impossible to set a definite date for
the announcement of the awards. Every
effort Is being made to make a speedy
accounting, but a visit to the rooms in
Thirteenth Street will convince anjbodj
or the magnitude of the task, but it Is
being done In a s sterna tic way that will
bring the best results, and a little pa
tience on the part of the contestants
will help toward the ultimate result.
Throngs of people crowded the rooms
on Friday night up to the closing hour
and an immense amount of interest was
displaved by every visitor.
At the earliest possible date the tfmc
qf settling the awards will be published,
and. meanwhile, Mr. A. B. Eads, who In
spired the project. Is working day and
