HOW VOTES ARE SECURED.
With every subscription to The'Bour
bon News (when it is asked for) is
given a ballot good for a certain num
ber of votes, according to the length
of thefsubsenption. These ballots may
be held as'long as desired and-voted at
any time up to the last day of the con
test. In fact, it is well to hold back a
large per cent of your vote ballots, as
then no one knows how many votes
you have, and are less likely to have
someone who knows that you have
turned in all of your subscriptions and
had the vote published, to step in the
last moment and get the prize you de
sire. If you hold back part of your
ballots no one knows, not even the
contest department, for no record is
kept of vote ballots issued to you,
how manygvotes you have.
