H. M. Walker
Is the Leader Today
Contestants Are Busy In All the
Accumulating a Nice Lot of
Sets of Books Sent
and Are Rapidly
tes Four More
The standing of contestants in The
Herald's popular voting contest is pub
lished today for the second time. As
predicted there has been quite a shake
up in the order of standing, and while
several of the previous leaders are still
well up, there has been a surprising
gain on the part of one or two -who had
only nominating votes last Saturday.
The contest is barely started and the
next list published might possibly show
some candidate well in the lead from a
town -which has not j-et been repre
sented. H. 2VT. T'alker. of Morenci Ariz., is
the leader today and has the nice total
cf 62.-00 volesu He has been one of
the fev to keep busy every day, and
his persistent work has put him to the
front with a good lead. Morenci is a
town which appreciates tho value of a
gocd live citizen, and after Mr. Walker
lias shown his ahillty to keep well to
the front ihe entire town will be found
backing him to the limit to win.
R. H.- Molineaux, of Madera, Mexico,
the leader last time, drops to second
place today, but he has not been Idle,
and ds only 900 votes behind the leader.
Third place is held by a newcomer,
Mrs. H. TV. Townsend, of Alpine, Texas.
Mrs. Townsend has only been busy for a
few days, but the size of her vote
Bhows that she fis a contestant who will
have to be reckoned with from now
on. "While her home town is not -so
large as some of the towns with which
she Is competing, this contestant has a
large field to draw from, and with con
sistent effort will be able to make a
considerable Increase each time the vote
Miss Minnie Campbell, . of Marfa,
Texas, is fourth in today's list. This
popular young lady is also a new entry
fin the list of contestants, and the fact
that she has been nominated Dy several j
different persons within the last two
days leads us to believe that she has
a host of friends who are willing to
aid her in her effort to wdn one of the
beautiful prizes offered.
Mrs. I. D. Miller, of Franklin, Texas,
has dropped from third to fifth place,
but is steadily ..increasing her vote. The
other contestants are in about the same
order as they were in the previous list,
each one having made a slight Increase
If any of the candidates who so far
have only nominating votes to their
credit are holding back on account of
not being clear on any of the rules of
the contest, The Herald will be pleased
to forward them at once any informa
tion they may desire. Arrangements
have been made, to answer all letters
from contestants as rapidly as they ar
rive, so ask us all the questions you
want to. if there is anything which is
not perfectly clear to you.
H. M. Walker, of Morenci, and Mrs.
H. W. Townsend, of Alpine, have each
(turned In enough new yearly subscrip
tions to win both sets of books offered
as the first special prize. This makes
three contestants who have already
taken advantage of the book offer, Mr.
Molineaux having turned In enough last
week to secure them. This offer will
be continued for a short time, and'
all contestants should get busy and
turn in enough subscriptions to get the
books, as they are a nice addition to
any library. It only takes six new
yearly subscriptions to get one set or
10 to get both.
The vote by distracts is as follows:

El Paso people have been excluded
from this contest, because The Herald
realizes that It would be impossible for
its out of town subscribers to compete
with local people on even terms. There
is a Herald subscriber in nine out of
every 10 homes In thl city, and an El
Paso contestant could easily keep ahead
of an out of town competitor by merely
collecting from the subscribers In his
Great interest In The Herald's popu
lar voting contest Is being shown in
all parts of the southwest, and present
appearances Indicate that there will be
entries from practically every town In
this territory. The fact that The Herald
is excluding its city subscribers from
this competition makes it much easier
for contestants in the outside districts
to win, and they are quick to appre
ciate this fact. In most contests of this
nature the out of town subscriber has
to compete on an even basis with the
local contestants, and In that case it Is
almost a foregone conclusion that the
larger prizes will go to . some of the
contestants In the home town, leaving
only the district prizes for the out of
town contestants to compete for. In
The Herald's contest this feature I
eliminated and all contestants will be
on an equal footing. Some one in one
of tha smaller towns Is bound to get
the automobile, the player piano, the
trips to Xew York or one of "the other
prizes offered. Xo town is too small
for contestants to enter from, as they
can, In addition to their own efforts,
get votes by having friends work for
them In other towns.
It Is not so dlffiault as you may think
to get subscriptions in a contest of this
kind the difficulty lies in getting
started. Once you get going it is sur
prising how many friends you will find
who will not only encourage you, but
i will actually get right out and assist
i 3'ou in securing votes. If you have not
already entered the contest fill out one
of the nomination blanics and send it
in to the contest editor of The Herald.
He will (immediately send you receipt
blanks and reports with which to work,
and will assist you in every way pos
sible under the rules of the contest to
get your campaign started. After you
j get over the first noviiry oi campaign
ing and learn how to approacn a pros
pective subscriber the work Is so easy
that you can pile up an immense vote
in no time at all. The list of contest
ants and the votes to their credit is
now being published twice each week,
and thl5? list Is of interest, not only to
the contestants themselves, but also to
the thousands of Herald readers jwho
are wondering, to whom to give their
votes as they pay up their subscrip
tions. Competition of any kind always
attracts attention, and if you keep your
name well toward the top you will find
that scores of people of whom you have
never heard will take an interest in the
effort you are making, and will send in
their votes for you.
A beautiful Overland car has been
purchased as the first grand prize. In
selecting this car The Herald feels that
it is giving its hustlers the best there
is on the market. The new 1910 models
represent the latest advancement of
motor car manufacturing, include every
feature desirable to an owner and ap
proved by modern engineering, and all
Indications point toward its being the
most popular car of the season. The
color Is dark blue with fine lined gold
striping, making a very attractive and
lasting finish. The business of manu
facturing automobiles has advanced so
rapidly In the last year or two that
the mechanical troubles which so dis
couraged automobile owners for a time,
have all been done away with and now
j all that Is necessary is to start your
car and know how to steer It. TVith
the perfection of the mechanical parts
has also come the cheapening of the
operating cost until now it only costs
about half as much to run an automo
bile as it does to care for a horse. In
this respect we are pleased to state that
the Overland has proved at a number
of tests that it is one of the "cheapest
running' cars manufactured. Another
important feature in this car is the
control, which Is so perfect and yet so
simple that any woman can feel per
fectly safe in running the car.
The Apollo Player piano which is to
be given as the second grand prize Is In
a class all by itself. There are any
number of other players, but the
Apollo is the only one which utilizes
the entire key board. It -is the only
mechanlcal player made to use 8S keys,
which is 23 more than other players
use. When you stop to think that only
a very small percent of the music
written can be played without altera
tion on 65 keys the superiority of the
Apollo is very apparent.
Tho third grand rize. the double trip
to Xew York and return by way of
water route, while not the most ex-
1 pensive will probably be the most allur
ing prize of all "when the hot summer
days are here. In choosing this trip The
Herald has taken into consideration the
fact that its readers nearly all of them
would prefer a vacation on the water to
almost any other pleasure trip "which
could be selected. The line of coast
wise steamers from Galveston to Xew
York Is well known as one of the finest
in point of passenger service which can
be found anywhere. The hotel accom
modations in Xew York city "will be
the best which can be secured and
nothing will be overlooked to give the
lucky winners of this prize the best
time they have ever had. We say win
ners in this case because all arrange
ments hava been made to entertain two
people for this entire trip. The Herald,
pays all expenses for both and two
people can enjoy all the benefits of
-winning this prize.
In the selection of a piano the name
Hobart M. Cable can be depended upon
as your assurance of musical quality
the highest possible to attain. Know
ing this The Herald has selected as its
fourth grand prize a piano of this
make and we are convinced that who
ever wins it will not regret the effort
put forth to acquire an instrument of
such exceptional character and In
In selecting the district prizes no
difficulty was encountered in deciding
upon the first prize. The VJctrola has
bee,n out just long enough to have Its
merits well advertised and we venture
I to state that there is'not a home in the
entire southwest which would not wel
come thG advent of one of these en-
t trancing little music makers. For
years everyone nas enjoyea neanng
their favorite selections on the grapho
phone but there was always the
scratching of the needle on the record
to mar an otherwise perfect rendition.
In the Victrola this is eliminated and
the reproductions of both voice and In
strument are as nearly perfect as the
mind of man can conceive.
The set of silverware which will ba
given as the second district prize is a
beautiful pattern finished in the well
known silver gray finish and has been
assorted verv carefully so as to maka It
i as useful as possible for all purposes.
The third district prize will be an up
todate camera with all the usual equip
ment and will give Its possesor many
an hour of pleasant pastime.
Of course, everyone who enters th
contest cannot win one of these- prizes,
but there are 16 pr'izes now on the list,
and In addition to these there will be
offered several hunured dollars' worth,
of special prizes for the contestants to
work for. Anyone who works at all Is
sure to get at least one prjze, and at the
I final windup it will be found that those
who .have gone ahead "working ccnslst-
f ervtly and tried to make their votv as
good as possible, no matter what the
others were doing "will be the ones to
get the grand prizes arid share 'In the

First Grand Prize
0 Overland Automobile
This car has been selected for its power, comfort and
elegance, and for the simplicity of its mechanism.
It is one of the best cars made in the United States
today and compares favorably with cars selling at a
much higher price.
H. P. EToake, Distributor, El Paso, Tex
The Overland has power, speed and neverfailing abil
ity; it is big enough to give plenty of room, yet it is so
handy that it can be readily turnedr without backing,
in a narrow street, and it is so simple as to be the ideal
car for women.

The Apollo Player Piano is one
of the most desirable instru
ments to be found on the market.
It is dainty in its exterior ap
pearance and the originalitv of
its case designs, the finish of its
details, its symmetry in propor
tion and the grace of its lines
commend it to music lovers gen
erally. The Apollo has a greater range"
than the ordinary player, as it is
equipped to play 58, 65 or 88
note music. It thus commands
th,e entire range of the keyboard.
THIRD GRAND PRIZE
Two Trips to New York
This trip can be taken at any time during the ensuing summer, as on May 10th this
transportation T'ill be subject to the order of the "contestant winning, the third grand
prize. Eealizing that no one enjoys traveling alone, The Herald has arranged this trip
for two people, and this gives the contestant a chance to take along some one who will
share the pleasure of such a trip and greatly add to its enjoyment.
Fourth Grand Prize
$400 Hobart M.
This piano is from the factory of one of the best known
manufacturers in the country and is warranted to give com
plete satisfaction in every detail.
It is a beautiful instrument, has perfect tone, and the cases
are masterpieces in exclusive artistic design.
