for the Price of The Chronicle Alone. jflH
This newspaper has just Joined with
The Augusta Chronicle, Die "South's
Oldest Newspaper," In what is, by far,
the Greatest Newspaper Voting Con
test ever Inaugurated in Georgia or
South Carolina; in which over $15,000
In prizes will be given away within
the next ninety days.
Full announcement of the details of
this Kreut piece of newspaper enter
prise is made elsewhere in this issue;
see tho big display advertisement for
further Information, and watch our
columns, from week to week, for
news of the great contest. Also see
The Chronicle, from day to day, for
the very latest contest news.
Our friends and subscribers may ask
how we have managed to enter into a
newspaper contest of this magnitude,
in which over $15,000 in prizes are
to be given away. The explanation
Is easy?The Chronicle has made It
A short time ago, nearly a hundred of
the best business men in Augusta join
ed with Editor Thomas W. Loy less in
buying certain interests in The Chron
icle, In order to give Mr. Loy less com
plete control and a free-hand In the
management of the famous old Augusta
paper. So anxious are tho new own
ers of The Chronicle to extend the
paper's influence and circulation
throughout Augusta's territory, that
they, at otue, authorized the expendi
ture of $10.000. or more, for prizes,
etc., to be given away in a great voting
contest to promote The Chronicle's
The Chronicle's management, then,
Invited this newspaper, and twenty
or thirty of the leading weekly news
papers in its territory, to participate
with it In this great contest; the local,
or county, papers to put up the "local
or county prizes," while Th Chronicle
furnishes all of the big capital prizes,
state prizes and district prizes, such
A 100-acre farm In Georgia or Caro
A $2.250 Automobile; high-grade 1911
model, live passenger car.
Three or more $000 to $1,200 auto
mobiles; the best in their class.
Six $400 nigh-grade pianos.
six $100 diamonds rings.'
Six $50 gold watches.
Six $100 merchandise orders.
Six full scholarships In the Osborne
Husniess College. Augusta.
And numerous other prizes.
Of particular interest will be the
proposition made by The Chronicle to
let the winner of one of tho "district"
piano prizes exchango tho same for a
trip to Europe; but it is doubtful if
anyone in this locality will care to
make a trip to Europe this summer.
The '?district" diamond ring prize
may be exchanged for a trip to New
York, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia:
and this is more attractive, even, than
a European trip.
This county is going to be a top
liner in the joint contest which has
been unnounced by The Chronicle and
this newspaper, and nothing cither of
these papers has done has been more
favorably received. There's enthusi
asm now, but In a week from this time
it's going M be ten-fold what it is.
Tlie large amouot of prizes to be
distributed is bound to arouse this en
thusiasm. The Chronicle has main
tained a strong following in this town
and county for some years and now
the support will be greatly Increased
as a spirit of fellowship exists for the
new owners of The Chronicle who ore
manifesting decided inclinations to

A Few More Directions as lo the Pur
chase of Tickets and Other Things.
As tho time approaches for the con
cert to bfl given in the Opera House,
by tho Skovgaard Concert Party, it
seems that these noted musicians will
be greeted by a packed house. When
the ticket sale opened Monday morn
ing at the Palmetto Drug Store a bum
line of buyers wero on hand t > ehoos<
seals. Perhaps it was the most en
thusiastic sale or the kind thai has
ever been held in Latirons. Without
a single intermission or without a
pause nearly $200 worth of tickets
were sold. While Prof. Jones, who is
managing the entertainment, was ex
pecting a hearty response to such a
line attraction, he did not expect such
a largo sale at the opening. An unex
pectedly large number of people are
coming from the surrounding towns.
Ilcsidcs those who arc coming from
the nearby towns, It is expected that
a party will bo made up In Spartan

foot there to get up a seiet t crowd.
All of tho seats on the first fioor will
be reserved. Those within the balus
trade sell for $1.00. Those behind sell
for 7"> cents. The balcony seats sell
for f>0 cents. As a number 'if school
