'Whoop er up, Liza Jane," seems to
be the slogan of nearly all the candi
dates in the Climax's voting contest,
and as a result, there ma; be some sur
prises in store.
The second count of the ballots will
he made next Saturday evening, Feb.
15ih, and the name of the winner will
be announced in next Tuesday's issue of
the Climax.
There is absolutely no way of telling
who will win the prize in this count or
in the final ' round-up," as many of
those who had made very little head
way at the time of the first award, have
since been depositing votes faster than
a country boy can throw potatoes; and
the very one who stands at the bottom
now may hustle around in her locality
and be the winner in the end. All that
is necessary to be the winner of the
beautiful 1400 piano is to get as many
of your friends as possible to subscribe
for the Climax or renew their subscrip
tion, casting their ballots for you. Also
ask your friends to do their trading with
merchants who give coupons. These
coupons are each good for 25 votes, one
is given with each tl cash purchase.and
by asking your friends to do their trad
ing with these merchants, you may be
able to win the beautiful piano.
Remember the ballot box will be clos
ed at 4 p.m., Saturday next, Feb. 15th,
and those who are holding their voles
should rush them in now, so -they will
be sure to be here for the count.
Remember also that many of our.
leading merchants are interested in this
contest and give 25 vote coupons wiih
every dollar cash purchase. Also those
who do not fully understand the rules
and regulations of this contest can call
at this office and we will go over the
proposition with them.

tions, 10,000 extra, a total of 11,200
For every seven renewal subscriptions
8,000 extra, a total of 11,500 voles.
For every seven back subscriptions,
6,000 extra, a total of 8,800 voles.
For every 40 merchant's coupons
brought to this office and counted by the
publisher or bis assistant, a bonus of 500
extra votes- This will make a total of
of 1,500 votes.
These coupons may be collected from
any and all merchants who are in the

Urge your friends to ask for the cou

and if they fail to do this, remind them
of the fact that by securing them it

New subscribers are, what count the
most in this contest, because every new

Richmond Art Life.
It is the gracious custom in many lit
tle Northern communities to offer the
stranger within their gates much the
same privilege as is meant by Metho
dist approbation. To be less vague, the
stranger resides for a year within a giv
en town and behaves himself.. His wife
shows good taste in keeping her chil
dren out of neighbors' yards and by
sending them religiously to the Sabbath
school at prompt Dine thirty every Sun
day. The children break no window
panes; scare no horses; steal no flow
ers; take nobodys seat at divine services;
flirt with no maidens. At the end of a
year's time the stranger is no longer a
stranger, but a neighbor, citizen and
The writer has been in Richmond
more than twice this length of time and
claims bis privilege eagerly. He claims,
remembering that he must likewise
abide by neighbor law and also must
show neighbor sympathy. Were he to
drift into New York, he would dbt reg
ister from .Louisville or Lexington or
the home town in Indiana; he is a. very
small part of Richmond's citizenship,
and the Richmoud feeling is growing
bigger every week.
Therefore has he a right to 'speak
out?' He hopes you are nodding ''Yes!"
Music ia the only side of Richmond's
art life that is given its proper stress.
Thru adequate training in the various
educational institutions, thru the suc
cessful maintenance of our musical
clubs, thru the cultivated talents of
several individuals. Our Town outranks
many. And yet, how seldom are we,
the general public, privileged to hear
the product of even this beautiful tal
ent. There is true artistry in the piano
forte execution of Mesdames Denny,
Kellogg, Hoskinson, McGaughey, John
son and many more. - How often have
you, Mr. Editor, heard them play? And
( know whereof I speak when I say that
their work is both finished and ,well
worth many hearings. , And our vocal
ists many of them ' having received
costly musical educations. Have we no
way to reach them ? We have ! I will
merely hint at a solution. The larger
cities have popular concerts that if,
concerts placed at so humble a rale of
admission that the school boys and
girls, those of meagre earnings, and in
fact, all interested may attend. In the
case of Richmond the lands could be
put to many uses in the line of charity
endeavor. I believe Our Town wants to
hear its musical citizens.
Try to forget the apparent Ego when
I mention the possibility of a dramatlo
organization. Su:han org a n 1 1 a t i o n
should be backed by the mature. enthu
siasts, who used to li'ce to "act." It
should be permanent and represent the
real dramatic talent in the community
in which we live. For myself, I would
affirm that it should have its own rooms,
thoroughly outlined program and poli
cies. Its earning power could also be
turned into charity work. In two weeks'
time a committee of representative wo
men recently brought to light a real ar
ray of dozens who possessed talent.
What could they do with four weeks in
which to select?
It is my privilege to know something
of the number of Richmond people who
are busy almost every day turning out
embryonic literary masterpieces. Why
not a huge cosmopolitan (not magazine)
club of people who either like to write
or like writing? Honestly, why not?
The Woman's Club is doing a success'
ful work, but not this work. There is
not a young man or woman on the streets
but has written either a moving pic
ture play, a love lyric or started his fi st
novel. With newspaper men, occasion
al literary workers, hack writers and
others who are interested, we might
have worth-while monthly meetings that
would be a revelation even to ourselves,
The opportunity neglected ranks as fail
ure. Snch an organization could very
easily bring to the general public many
of Kentucky's great literary men and
women, for they are vulnerable to at
tention. It is a part of the literary
Some of the best-read people I have
ever met are residents now of what we
call Our Town. We are in the heart of
club women's activities. Richmond can
boast of producing many fine records in
politics, reforms, education. Then why
not a civio league? A great body of
those mho desire the best in citizenship
and will fight until it is obtained. .Why
not learn the best in politics from an
evening with Representative Herring
ton? Why not caich the awakened spir
it of education from President Crabba
or Superintendent Bridges? Frankly,
why should we not have a permanent,
organized body of men and women who
deep in their hearts desire to learn the
various uplifting messages that -come
out of our daily modes of living? And
the meeting-place is quickly solved, if
the authorities would offer the use of
court-house assembly rooms, or the chap
els of the various schools were thrown
And finally, brethren, (is I am sure
my good father would say) we are not
unmindful of the successful business
interests. Business is responsible for
any community's permanent social ad
vantages. Rusiness means salaries and
homes, and countless civio improve
ments. But the commercial side should
be certainly augmented by the art side.
The writer can only suggest. He is not
sufficiently influential to act. The need
is certain. In my heart of hearts I
hope for a response that takes perma
nent shape.
