Mr. C. J. Wilson, Luther . Miss Abby Christopherson, Joliet Mrs. Nannie Parker, Washoe . By keeping up the lick until two hours before midnight last Saturday night the salesmanship candidates brought the race for the two special awards, the Gold Watch for Red Lodge and the $100.00 in gold for the out side, and the extra ballots given for the first period, to a record smash ing finish. The winners of the two extra prizes totaling $150.00 will not be announced until the close of the main campaign July 2nd. This was one of the condi tions under which these prizes were to' be given. The rule was made at the outset in the following prelimi nary statement; "$50.00 Extra For Red Lodge A gold watch will be given as a special additional prize to the candi date in Red Lodge turning in the lar gest number of vote credits before 10 o'clock p. m. May 31st 1924. $100.00 in Cash Extra For Outside Red Lodge will be given as a special additional prize to the candidate in the towns outside of Red Lodge who turns in > the largest number of vote credits be-1 fore 10 o'clock P. M. May 31st, 1924. 1 The above extra awards will be giv en in addition to any other prizes the winners may earn and the winners of the extras will be announced by the judges at the close of the main cam paign." The Salesmanship Campaign de partment has no authority to an nounce winners of any of these prizes —that is a matter resting solely with the judges who have the auditing of amounts and dates of credits of all contestants. These contestants be it understood, have the naming of the judges, the Chronicle only seeks to have present a representative of the Salesmanship Campaign Dpartment, when the figures are ascertained by the judges at the close, July 2nd, 1924. The crowned heads of Europe have been toppled from their thrones in far less time than four weeks, battles have been won and lost in shorter space of time, and certainly this is time enough for most any ambitious man or woman to work and to win in the ( Chronicle Salesmanship Campaign for subscriptions to the paper. It is literally true that to enter and to work, even to work a little bit, is to win for in addition to the big prizes listed in the page advertisement in this paper each one who turns in as much as $2.60 in Chronicle subscrip tions gets paid a 10 per cent cut out of it. So even if one does not want to work for the big awards, there's cer tain sure pay in the cash commissions to those who do not win any other prize. Celebrate The 4th With Red Lodge! 4 - Sports, Dancing, Fire Works. All Free Attractions - Big Rodeo, Ball Games, Bands - It appears that many of those com peting do not fully understand what the Chronicle offers them for work. One would suppose by the Salesman ship activity shown by a few that they think this a competition for a doll carriage or a kiddie car. Now listen, young folks, the one who wins the Gardner car will earn nearly $330.00 per week from now until the dose of the campaign the winner of the diamond ring, a $200.00 token will only earn a pittance of $60.00 a week just small change for spare time. Stroll around town and see the prizes at the Ball Furniture Company, the Beartooth Jewelry Store and see the car at the Salesmanship headquarters 101 North Broadway and perhaps you will begin to realize that you would like to work and win these awards. The first period ended last Satur day, the next period from now until June 26 gives each salesman double credits for every subscription turned in. Its a splendid time for new con testants to start and with a few hours work they can be in with the leading workers. The figures for publication today show an increase in the totals of the various candidates, as was to be ex pected after the close of the big ballot prize offer. But lest you should for get again, these figures do not include reserve credits. According to thetable Mrs. Nannie Parker of Washoe, (by a mistake placed in a Red Lodge di vision last week) is the leader in the voting in the county. She made up her mind to start in the campaign two weeks ago and is doing excellent work. Miss Mary Savich of Bearcreek, a dangerous contender in the race and George Karhu of Rel Lodge are even for second position while Miss Anna McConville is next in the list. Miss Leone Bergan of Roberts, Miss Ruby Negovan and Miss Lucille Giovetti both of Red Lodge have good scores in the table. It is anybody's race up to the present time, - RICHEL LODGE OPENS SATURDAY The formal opening of Richel Lodge for 1924 season is set for next Sat urday, June 7th.

With this issue the Chronicle is mailed to its readers on Wednesday and in the future publication will be made on that day, the change being sure to prove beneficial to our read ers and patrons. When the Chronicle was established the latter part of March, the publish ers were of the opinion that the coun ty could be thoroughly covered by a Friday publication, but information gathered during the past week when the editor visited every section tribu tary to Red Lodge, shows that to reach tne outlying rural postoffices publi cation must be made at an earlier ti me. Hence the change has been made in the future AU county readers of the paper should receive it on Thursday and not later than Friday in the more remote communities. This change of publication day will in nowise effect the standard of the publication. All its special depart ments will be maintained as at pres ent and every effort stressed to render satisfactory service to the already large list of readers.

Alice was born in Red Lodge on April 26, 1902, and spent the early years of her life here, in later years however she has been a resident of the Luther district. During her brief existence in this world, Miss Boggio occupied her spare moments with a violin, succeeding so well in this vo cation that her accomplishments and artistic temperament were being con stantly sought by neighboring friends. The deceased tho not particularly del icate, was frail, which fact only helped to enhance her dazzling beauty, and grace. Miss Alice is survived by friends who could be counted by the score. She also leaves sorrowing parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bogio, five brothers, Aleck, Frank, Joe, Peter, and John Boggio of Chicago who arrived from there to attend the funeral, two sisters, Mrs. J. M. Waters, and Miss Evangeline Boggio, both of Luther.

Considerable excitement was occas ionod among local fishermen and the people of tho city generally oa last Friday when tho news spread abroad that Master Thomas Gillen had landed a trout weighing 61bs and 7 oz. from the waters of Rock creek above the Although Master Gillen is the 02 pound champion prize fighter of Southern Montana ho was not exactly prepared for eventualities when the fish took hold and as a result he was pulled into the stream but soon re covered his composure and got ready for a long drawn out battle as it soon proved to be. Twice he was dragged into the water it is alleged, and twice he fought his way to shore using his reel the while to shorten his hold and give him the advantage. After a struggle that lasted nearly an hour young Gillen succeeded in landing his prize after which he knocked off and called it u day. Tho fish is not on ex hibition but was divided among the residents of the Third Ward who were less fortunate in their ventures. At any rate it was a red letter day in the history of the South part of the city and Young Mr. Gillen's many friends are congratulating him on his success ful catch. 18 THERE A FALLEN MAN in the sombre eyes; hut none can see the terrible yearning for that one wild love of his past culling in his heart. AMONG YOUR FR1LND87 "The fallen woman no longer falls alone," says Sophie Irene Loeb. She is president of the Child Welfare Board of New York City and has much information brought to her about fal len women—and fallen men. You know the old fashioned stories of the fallen girl. But have you ever seen a play about a fallen man 7 Yesterday men sowed their wild oats as a matter of course, never taking the results seriously. Society seemed to say it was their privilege. Things are changing. Today when men and women sin through love, do not many men suffer, too? Take an actual story from real life of a young virginal man, with high ideals inculcated by his mother, vlho goes out to study humanity that he may fit himself to help mankind. It is the old, old cry that has caused many a heart-ache, and wrecked many a life in love's game. ' Such as these arc the secrets of the fallen man; and to know more about him and about her you must see D. W. Griffith's newest picture, "The White Rose," at the Roman theatre Secrets of the Fallen Man Sunday and Monday June 8 and 9. Matinee 2:90 o'clock. It is real, it is new, for this is the play of which Sophie Irene Loeb, great publicist and humanitarian, spoke regarding the fal len man. Preparations are going atyad with all possible speed for the big celebration to be staged here by the business men, miners and various Union locals, Ju ly 4th. One of the most active of the com mittees has been the finance commit tee which has met with unusual suc cess and at the present writing ample ' funds have been subscribed to assure the undertaking while there are yet a large number to be interviewed. Other committees have been busy arranging for the different attractions and other details and this (Wednes day) evening a general meeting will he held at the club rooms at which time all committees will report and I the various attractions which are con | template«! will be definitely decided upon. in our next issue we hope to give the personal of the different commit i and a general "line up" of the "doings" for the big day. But, don't worry that there will not he something doing every minute, Red Lodge will put on a celebration that will go down in history as the hig ^eat event of its kind ever singed in this section, and that's going some, Plan now to join with us in celebrat ing our Nations' Independence Day. Red Lodge For a Good Time! Red Lodge July 4th. SCOTT LEAVITT FOR THE FARMERS The greatest need of the country is the solution of our farm problems, Congressman Scott Leavitt said in a speech in tho house in urging passage of the McNary-Haugen bill. He stat ed that since his election to congress ho has given more "time and thought to agricultural legislation than to all others combined." for this reason. In support of the measure he said in part: "The sole purpose of the McNary llaugun bill is to give to agrilculture the same protection afforded other lines of activity, to place the farmer's product on an exchange basis compar able with what he must buy. It is a sound, conservative bill, because it meets an emergency. It is not pro posed as a permanent policq, but re cognizes that, just us exceptional measures were required and justified to win the war, necessary steps to win the peace for agriculture as well as for labor and industry are required. "This bill says that only when an emergency exists, the corporation formed and headed by the secretary of agriculture shall be empowered to buy, at a price of equality with all commodities, for sale abroad at the world prices of the surplus, while the needs of home consumption are met at prices commensurate and on a parity with all other commodities purchased here. It gives the means of protect ing the home market against foreign competition by flexible tariff, and it charges hack on the farmer himself j the cost of operating the corporating [ the corporation and the loses on fore ign sales. That is all it proposes to do, and if you believe that agriculture is entitled to a square deal, this is your opportunity to demonstrate it > as a working fact by supporting this measure." - R. D. Scott, superintendent of the mines is enjoying a few days visit with j his wife, who arrived here Saturday ] Mrs. Scott, and two children expect to make this city their home, after the latter part of June.
