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
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
"$50.00 Extra For Red Lodge
A gold watch will be given as a
special additional prize to the candi

The above extra awards will be giv

winners may earn and the winners of
the extras will be announced by the
judges at the close of the main cam
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

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

EARLY IN WEEK
In Order to Rend*r Better Service to
Barn) Reader* and Other Patron*
Paper Will be Published on Wed
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.

Death of Miss Boggio
Causes Much Sorrow
All the past week the many friends
of Miss Alice Boggio were greatly
concerned over an attack of heart fail
ure which the young lady was stricken
with early last week in Billings, and
which she continued to suffer with
until death released the suffering soul
from its earthly tabernacle, at the St.
Vincents Hospital late Monday even
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
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.
The high regard which the young
maiden was held in by the entire com
munity was recognized by the multi-1

MASTER GILLEN SETS
A FISHING RECORD ?
Considerable excitement was occas

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

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.

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
"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
