NOW THINK HARD
In order to bring before the people
generally a better conception of Rock
Inland's advantages and to cultivate a
taste for well written advertisements
The Argus Offers
For the best display advertisement
calculated to induce the location of
residents or factories in Rock Island.
The contest to be conducted
the Following Conditions
V) The contest is open to any resident of Rock
! Island, male or female.
(2) Onlv one "ad" will be considered from each
0) The advertisement must not contain more than
'one hundred words
(4) The contest opens Tuesday. May 18. and closes
Saturday, June 5, at 6 p. m. All "ads" must be at The
Argus office by that hour. .
() Every "ad" must bear the full name and ad
dress of the contestant and the number of words it contains.
(6) The award of the prize will be made by a com
mittee of three, composed of T. H.Thomas, Charles Buford
and Prof. J. E Gustu?, of Augusttna college.
(7) The winner will be given an order for $$ worth
of books of his or her own selection.
In This Connection It May Be Said
That an advertisement containing the
fewest words is often the most striking,
and that the most grammatical is not
always the most attractive Common
sense and truthfulness should be
kept in mind. The ad that is the best
in all respects, the most striking, origi
nal and most likely to carry, conviction
with it, will win the prize. Competitors
will bear in mind that the "ad" should
be prepared as though it were to be
used in New York papers for the pur
pose of attracting factories or residents
to Rock Island. The "ad" is to be what
is know as a display advertisement, in
other words one to be set in large bold
type to attract attention.
