That the ladies' societies of the various churches in Bemidji realize
thef splendid opportunity offered by the Bemidji Pioneer is self evident.
They are extending every effort to secure enough Pioneer subscriptions
to make their church a gift of from $125 to $500. It appears that
some do not fully understand the proposition and for the benefit of such
the following explanation will becarried in the columns of the Pion-
eer from day to day:
ONE DOLLAR CASH WILL BE PAID TO EACH LADIES, SOCIETY
FOR EVERY YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION, OLD OR NEW, SECURED FOR
THE DAILY PIONEER. WHEN A SET OF ONE HUNDRED HAS BEEN
REACHED A SPECIAL PREMIUM OF $25 WILL BE GIVEN. THUS
FOR ONE HUNDRED SUBSCRIPTIONS THE SOCIETY SECURING
THEM WILL HAVE RECEIVED A CASH GIFT OF $125. IF A CLUB
SECURES BUT SEVENTY-FIVE YEARLY SUBSCRIPTIONS, IT WILL
RECEIVE $75 IF BUT FIFTY YEARLY SUBSCRIPTIONS, $50 AND
IF ONLY TEN ARE SECURED A CASH GIFT OF $10 WILL BE MADE.
FOR ONE SIX MONTHS SUBSCRIPTION TO THE DAILY PIONEER,
FIFTY CENTS WILL BE PAID, AND FOR EACH ADDITIONAL SIX
MONTHS SUBSCRIPTIONS SECURED THE RATE WILL BE PAID
THE SAME. THUS, WHEN TWO HUNDRED OF THESE SIX MONTHS
SUBSCRIPTIONS HAVE BEEN TURNED IN, AN ADDITIONAL GIFT
OF $25 WILL BE GIVEN. A SIX MONTHS SUBSCRIPTION COUNTS
JUST HALF OF A YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE DAILY PION-
ONE YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION TO THE WEEKLY PIONEER COUNTS
SAME AS SIX MONTHS TO THE DAILY, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE
BEING THE SUBSCRIPTION PRICE WHICH IS $1.50 A YEAR. THE
DAILY FOR SIX MONTHS IS $2 AND THE DAILY FOR ONE YEAR
Many of hustlers of the various
churches will be surprised to learn
that already regular subscribers are
coming to this office to make pay
ments direct, with instructions to re
serve the dollar gift for the society
which they will later designate. The
women are not alone in this work,
but men and children are getting
busy to help their favorite church.
With a campaign of this nature on,
every nook and crook in this section
of the country will be supplied with
a Pioneer. Every fifty men, women
and children belonging to any
one church can make their church
have the first cash gift of $125. If
150 hustlers will secure each two
subscribers it will result in 300
names. Three hundred yearly sub
scribers would mean three times
$125 or $375.
Wouldn't this be a handsome gift

case of dispute the decision will go
to Harold Dane, the head linesman.
Coach Fred Carson will referee the
first half and Coach Earl Carson
will umpire and the positions will be
reversed in the second.
Grand Rapids is champion of the

Debs has been polling more than
his share of trie vote and this is
taken to indicate that his vote is
not a true measure of the Socialist
strength in the county as many Re
