Have Parental Blessing.
fBy Telegraph to The Tribune!
Trenton, N. J., Jan. Si.? A love of long
Standing* culminated yesterday In the elope?
ment of Albert T.'fms. jr., finteen years old,
and May I.echman, fifteen y.-ara old, class?
mates at the Centennial S?-hool. The chil?
dren, who are of prominent Trenton fami?
lle??, started for school yesterday morning,
as was their custom, and disappeared.
The police of all of the cities of the Kast
have been told to be on the lookout for the
youngster?. It is even thought that they
may have persuaded some one to marry
them, and if this has been the case tne
parents have announced that the parental
MeSStn-g awaits their homecoming.
By trolley conductors they were traced
as far as t'amden. and It was supposed that
they vvere on the way to an uncle of ths
led who lives l:i Atlantic i'lty. . Kniest
Miller, however, another uncle, sal'l to-:
night he saw the boy and a girl to-day In
New Brunswick. ""?a?

Don't Hesitate Too Long to Enter
The Tribune's Great Bookreader's Contest
There's a Long Stretch of Pictures
and Plenty of Time Ahead.
DON'T wait too long before you enter the
Bookreaders' Contest.

Don't wait until the last minute.
Enter this great interesting competition NOW,
while there is still a long stretch of contest
pictures and time before you.
Not that it is going to be an enormous task to
solve the entire seventy-three instalments of
Bookreaders' Pictures, but contestants should see
to it that they are not hurried or compelled to do
hasty work in preparing their sets of answers.
The prizes in this contest are entirely too
valuable to be slighted in this manner. Every
contestant should take plenty of time to study the
Tribune's Official Bookreaders' Catalogue in order
to arrive at the best possible solutions.
Of course, some people may think that it is
more fun to wait until the pictures are all pub?
lished, and then go into the contest and solve all
the pictures in a bunch.
But this is not the case. It is fun to solve the
pictures at any time, but there is more real en
joyment and beneficial mental recreation to be
gained by following and solving them daily than
there is in waiting for the publication of the en?
