But three full working days until
close of contest.
There is no ono in thin race so
sure of winning that they can even
pause for a moment. Lot everyone
K't busy instantly ami lose not one
single moment of these last three
lays. Devote all your time to the
contest, it is well worth it. .This
contest is to mine to a close prompt
ly at 7 o'clock on next Sat unlay night,
ami just think how disappointed you
will lie after all these weeks of striv
ing if you "fall ilown" from winning
the little "Jit-adv farm or piano.
Arrangements for the close of
the contest are now being made,
such u' the selection of judges, etc.
The judaes will lie three hi mniiher.
They will In- men of the very highest
standing, men who are above re
proach, and v.'.o.-e i!i -cisioii i:i this
race will he accepted without question.
Now is the time to g-t subscrip
tions while this phenoii.onal offer
of threc-for-one bonus votes offer
is on. This applies to hoth old and
new business, in w subscriptions or
merely r ncwals. It affords all con
testants of equal chance. To those
who have fallen a little behind it
offers the opportunity if you will hut
ledoublc your efforts of catching up.
Those who have worked their hardest
will hut renew their most earnest
efforts in view of the greatly in
creased reward. This big offer should
inspi ( everyone to tli greatest
sprint during these last few days
that yen are capable of, for that will
be necessary if you wish to win the
grand little farm.
Have you yet made up that list
of relatives, friends, neighbors, ac
quaintances ami fellow workers, whom
you haven't as yet approached.
If you' have not, you should do so
at once, and lose no time in getting
into uommunicat ion with them. Re
member, also, those persons whom you
saw earlier in the contest and who
put you off until a later date. Com
municate with all of these, explain
to them that you will get three times
the usual number of votes for their
subscriptions and under the circum
stances they won't refuse.
It is to be hoped that you un
doing everything within your power
to clinch success. Are you going to
lose for the want of a little effort
and energy in these closing hours of
this race? Wo do not think so.
And here's another thing. It is
the long term subscription that counts
for the most when the tripL- votes
are offered. Did you ever think of
nuking your friends for a subscrip
tion ubout twice as long as you
originally intended? Try it and sec
how very often you will find them
willing to do just as you suggest.
They realize just as well as you do
that this is the most trying stage
of the race and that their help may
mean everything to you. They want
to help all they can. It all depends
upon how you approach them us to
how substantial that help will amount
to. Ask them for a five, four, or
three years' subscription, and you
will get them before you have run
all the way down the scale.
Get out among your friends and
acquaintances, and hustle as you
never did before. Stir up everybody
who is at nil interested in the cam
paign, Make the closing days of the big
show lively ones.

Prominent Stock Dealer to
Use Stale Bread for
Regular Horse Feed.
Leaves foi St. Louis to Arrange
for Regular Shipments of
Stale Baker's Bread
Frank Kimmcl, the well known
and popular stock dealer of this city,
realizing the necessity of taking steps
to overcome the high cost of living
for his horses, has conceived the idea
of reducing expense by a most novel
method. Mr. Kimmcl will leave for
St. Louis Wednesday for the purpose
of entering into a contract with one
of the large bakery concerns of that
city to furnish him stale bread which
he expects to have shipped to him at
regular intervals. He expects to
pulverize every loaf and use it as a
substitute for grain. Mr. Kimmel
states that he can buy stale bread
at the price of 7.3 cents per hundred
loaves of one pound each, and he is
of the opinion that by this method
he will be enabled not only to make
a very material saving in his feed
bill, but at the same time to provide
the most nutritious and strengthen
ing food obtainable for his livestock.
He states that on next Monday he
expects to receive a shipment of 1000
loaves, and he intends to place a
standing order for shipments to ar
Of course this substitute for grain
will not overcome the necessity for
the use of hay, and he expects to
place his dumb charges on a mixed
diet of alfalfa and stale bread.
