THE MISSING WORD CONTEST
These amusing contests are now quite the rage in London, and we have heard
of one of them in which 217.000 persons participated. As each participant con
tributed a shilling entrance fee, the amount divided amor.g those who supplied the
missing word was large.
The total $53 5C0 was divided among 114 persons, so each ot
these got almost $470.
HERE ARE THE TERMS OF THE GONTEST:
