REAP BIG HAR
VEST OF VOTES
By Taking Advantage Now of
Double Vote Bonus Offer on
INTEREST IS VERY INTENSE
Notice the Figures Grow as Hust
ling Contestants Battle to Win
the Valuable Little Farm
But about six days rcmuin for you
in which to take advantage of that
splendid offer of Double Votes in
the Tribune free form and piano
contest, for the offer is effective only
until the evening of Wednesday, April
15th. Everybody who is nt all in
terested in this race is working
as they never worked before. There
are several contestants in this con
test out to win and there will be some
lively stepping before this brilliant
affair ends, lie lively in clipping the
coupons from the paper and voting
them for yowr favorites, as the coupon
now running will only be good until
the 1 5th of April, when the coupon
will be withdrawn not to appear again
in the foirteit.
Only a little more than three wwks
remain in which to become a winner
And in that time you can make your
self ojic of the big factors in this
popffker race. Don't procrastinate
longer. Others are working to win,
why not 'you? Many people are put
ting 'forth every 'possible effort to
advance the interests of their favorites
-while others are holding off waiting
to see what the other fellow is doing.
There is only one way to win and
that w to work, There is no rooms
for laggards in this popular competi
tion for a valuable farm, a piano and
glory. A number of names have al
ready been dropped from the list
because they failed to even clip the
free coupons which hove been appar
ing in the paper from day to day.
There will be more dropped next
week and the list will be weeded out
as the contest progresses. Now is the
time to get on the band wagon. Be
a winner. Make your opponent
sit up and take notitic.e that you are
We have been asked "who is going
to win the farm and piano?" We
don't know. It is impossible to
even haziard a guess as to what the
outcome will be, as the published
vote now does not by any means
necessarily indicate future standing
and success in winning. The sub
scriptions are coming in more rapid
ly every day and the number of votes
that are going out as reserves exceed
many times the numbor of votes
that are being cast.
Remember, that during this liberal
bonus offer of 2-for-l votes on all
yearly subscriptions, you get 20,000
-votes for each yearly subscription;
a two-year subscription gives you
60,000 votes and a three-year sub
scription 120,000 votes, enough to put
you right among the leaders as pub
lished in today's issue. There is
still lime to enter the contest, as
the list will not be closed until
The management of the Tribune has
decided not -to ;wsue a paper tomorrow,
Good Friday, .consequently the next
list with -the -standing of contestants
will be published on Saturday.
One five year -subaoription to the
Daily Tribune, during the double
ote bonus, is good for 540,000 votes.
"Be a live Wire ad you won't be
stepped on." By all means be a
The priutt hi thia eat contest
are well worth working lort a val
uable 20-acre farm fully equipped
.with residence ivd all necessary out
buildings, and a handsome piano, and
the competition is absolutely on the
level. The roost Industrious persona
There's plenty of good territory
throughout the county, where there
are either no candidates or the can
didates are not working very hard,
that should be looked after by the
lively contestant. You will also
find here and there several who have
been skipped, or neglected and they
should be garnered in at this time.
These missing ones ore the ones that
should be uncovered from their hiding
places and the broadside arguments
as to why they bhould take the Tri-
hune should be aimed toward tnem.
Thi class of "contest dark horses"
will aid materially the contestant
that finds them.
Those who expect to win this val
uable farm or handsome piano will
have to put in pretty steady work
from now until the contest close
to be at the top Saturday evening.
With the Tribune, a first-class
newspaper to back you up, with your
friends busy to aid you and with
the 2-for-l bonus votes as an inccn
tivc, Mr. Enterprising Candidate,
you should with little personal effort
gather in votes by the thousands.
Now get busy and keep busy, and
get on top, and stay there. That's
the way to win the big prize.
Until further notice no con
testant will be allowed to
poll more than a sufficient
number of votes to place
their score five thousand votes
ahead of. the leader in the
preceding issue. For instance
if A has 5,000 votes today
and the leader of the list
had 12,000 votes. A will be
allowed to cast enough votes
to make the score 17,000 in
the next list.

Spring- Pruning Time.
An authority on the subject of
roses says that the weak roses should
be pruned earliest and most severely,
and strong growers later and less
drastically. Cut all the dead wood
down to the base of the plant. The
sound wood should have white or
cream-colored pith, and if the pith
is brown be sure that it is worthless.
Do not prune all alike, reme mbering
that the vigorous growers do not
need so mcuh jiruning, while the
weak need to be treated so that they
may be strong.
