I'feVV'VeVfaVf.y' THE CHAWCE OF A LIFETBEUiE Last January, February and March it will be remembered we advertised what was at that time considered one of the biggest contests ever published. The first prize was nothing more norless than S5 a week for life, or an annuity of $250 a year in advance. Mr. A. V. Madden of Phillipsburg, N. J., was declared the winner, and as Mr. Madden preferred the annuity of 5250 a year in advance, a certified check for the said amount was promptly forwarded to him. 1 Just stop and think for a moment what a grand prize this was. It meant that as long as Mr. Madden lived he would receive from us every year on the first day of May 250 in cash. As Mr. Madden is only 27 years old he has a good many years before him in which to enjoy his good fortune. Ttltt nrf rnntut n-a -wl ,4 - 1 ..A 1 1 . I l ' 1 1 ' f .1 .

V jNow it you were so foolish as to ignore our previous advertisement, we certainly would advise you not to overlook this one, lor without a doubt this is the opportunity of your life, for you have not only a chance to win an income of $300 a year for life, but also to win a large amount of ready cash. We want you to read this over very carefully for it does not cost you one cent. One of these contests is, we believe, a very hard one, in fact so hard that it cannot be solved in a minute, nor an hour, but is going to tax your brains and take considerable of your time. However, do not give it up, for it can be solved and just think of the reward. We will give $2,000 la cash for the correct answer. In the block square to the left we have printed 16 jumbled letters which we want you to try and arrange. These jumbled letters when properly arranged will spell the names of three large cities in the world. One city being located in the United States, one in South America and one in Europe. In making the names of these three cities the letters can only be used as many times as they appear, and no letter can be used which does not appear. When you have found the three' correct names you will have used every letter in the sixteen as many times as it appears. If you cannot find the three correct names but find only two you will receive a special prize worth $1. Remember even if you find only two correct names you will have the same chance to win the income for life or one of the big cash prizes mentioned in the second half of this advertisement. If you send in your answer at once we are quite sure you will not be disappointed. Someone is" going to win the money and it may be you. Anyway, it does not cost you any money to try and if vou are a successful contestant there is onlv one easv condition, which will take less than half an hour of vour time, and which we will write you as soon as your answer is received. This, we can truthfully say, is the very hardest puzzle ever advertised, so get out your geography, atlas or encyclopedia ancwook for these three cities. The correct names are known only to the president of this company and his private secretary. The envelope containing the three names has been sealed and deposited with a leading Safe Deposit Co. in Boston and will not be opened until the day after the contest closes. This, we believe, is the only honest way of conducting a contest, as everyone will have an equal chance. In the event of more than one correct answer being received, we will request five parties who have answered this advertisement to act as a committee to award the cash pro rata. They will be invited to come to Boston at our expense and be our guests while in this city. We take this unusual method of selecting a committee to show our good faith as we want to treat all in the fairest manner possible. The committee will be selected from among the-contestants ten days before the contest closes, January 20, 1901, and you may be asked but not compelled to act as one of the committee. In addition to the Two Thousand Dollars in Cash we will give you an opportunity to win K N S3 a 9 GASH PRIZES OF S250 EACH FREE 58 GASH PRIZES OF $25 EACH FREE WITHOUT LABOR OR EXPENSE. We are going to give to someone who has entered this contest and who complies with our easy conditions, an opportunity to win and secure" from us without any labor or expense on their part. Three Hundred Dollars every year during their natural life. We mean Just what we say. If you are the lucky one, and we hope you are, or some one will get it, we will send the winner every year during their natural life $300 cash in advance. Now, in addition to the cash prizes already mentioned we are going to give away nine cash prizes of $250 each and fifty-eight cash prizes of $25 in the following man ner We will give 5250 to one party residing in the New England States which consist of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecti cut, $250 to one party residing in the Middle States which consist of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and District of Columbia. $250 to one party residing in thsj Central States which consist of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Mich igan and Wisconsin. $250 to one party residing in the Western States which consist of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and North and South Dakota. $250 to one party residing in the Southern States which consist of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia. Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Ten nessee and Kentucky. $250 to one party residing in the Southwestern States which consist of Louisiana. Arkansas. Oklahoma. Texas. New Mexico and Arizona. $250 to one party residing in the Rocky Mountain States which consist of Montana, Wyo ming, Colorado, Idaho and Utah. $250 to one party residing in the Tacific Coast States which consist of California. Nevada, Oregon and Washington, and $250 to one party residing in the Dominion of Canada, and that is not all, for we will give to one party residing in each State and Territory in the United States and in each province of the Dominion of Canada a cash prize of $25. , We mean just what we say. Vou have an opportunity to win and secure from us, without any labor or one cent of expense on your part, any of the above named prizes. There is positively no deception, and as for trickery, how can there bo, when the committee is selected from the contestants, and you yourself might be chosen to decide who the winners are. Do not throw this contest aside and say. Oh. pshaw! I have answered puzzles before and never got anything ; for if you do you will regret it as long as you live. Some one is going to win the money and it may be you, no one can telL Anyway, it does not cost you one cent as we do not want any money from you. Are the prizes worth trying for? We think they are, for f 300 a year paid to you for life will keep one from the poor-house and to those who have a small income it will supply them with many a necessity which one has to do without in these hard times. Do you know of any firm in the world that has made such liberal offers in such a fair manner? Of coarse we are strangers to you and you have no assurance except our word that we are financially able to carry out the promise we make. If you have the least doubt, we would be pleased to have you get a special report from either Bradstreet's or Dun's Mercantile Agency, or our bankers. We are a responsible company with a paid-up capital of One Hundred Thousand Dollars, composed of well-known business men, and our sole object in giving away such large cash prizes is to advertise cur business and we will leave no stone unturned to accomplish, by honest methods only, our object. Everyone entering this contest Trill receive honest treatment, and you will have the same chance whether you live in California, Mexico, Canada or Massachusetts distance makes r.o difference. When you have carefully arranged the jumbled letters into the three names which you think are right, send your answer to us at once and enclose a ptanip for reply. Within a few days you will Teceive an answer telling you whether 3'ou are a successful contestant, and we will also send you full particulars regarding cur other contest whereby you can win for one moment's thought, without any labor cr expense, either 300 a year for life or a lan;e cash prize.
