A FINE LITTLE FA KM HOME.
When you stop to consider the fact that won may be presented
with this dandy little farm home 20aces of excellent land,
residence and all necessary' outbuildings it is something worth
pondering over. Who would ot want to hve such a present?
Some one is going to get it nd no great effort will be required.
Our motive is merely to secure the aid of (Lose wh would be
interested in hating such a present, to aid -us in building up a cir
culation for the new Daily and Weekly Tribune. There will be no
question of doubt as to the value of these papers and almost as many
subscribers w ill just as anxiously enroll the ir names without any con
sideration of this rare prize. Anyhow, we want to increase our list
to the very limit and are poinjr to do so. If you chance to be one
of the subscribers, remember, ou will have as good a chance as
anyone else holding the same number of receipts for subscriptions
that you hold.
This farm which is located in Cape county, and not in a swamp
or some undesirable section, will be such that when it is awarded
to the fortunate person, will be ready for immediate occupancy.
It will be such a home as hundreds of our readers have dreamed,
but such as few would be able to invest in from their earnings.
It will be a place where one with one's family can make a home and
be really independent.
NO STRINGS TO THIS PROPOSITION.
There will be no conditions in connection with this contest that
will prevent anyone man, woman or chi'.d- from making the race.
These features arc now being worked out, and we trust that within
very short time we will be able to announce the full plans, giving
out every item of information that hundreds are waiting for. We
desire to select the best and simplest plan, and the one that will be
generally approved by the hundreds who are no anxiously awaiting i
our announcement in this retard. I
Do not be induced to tie up with some newspaper proposition that
l you will regret, until you have had a chance to become one of the
contestants in this great Free Farm Offer for you well know that
a farm of 20 acres, equipped with residence and all necessary build
ings ready for you to move in is of far greater iiKrxrtanr! to Ju
and your family than some thing of a trivial nature in which you
might invest to help out a subscription list.
