April 20, at 3 p. m. and Immediately
thereafter the counting will be com

fered to those who are making an en
deavor to land the premiums. It is not
believed by those who have given the
matter careful thought that any partio
ular person has the grand prize cinch
ed at the present time, but there are sev
eral in the race who have a good chance
to land it if they hustle.
There are several young ladies who
appear to have the best of the contest,
but none of them have a sure cinch of
being the ultimate owner of the first
prize. If one of these contestants who
is way down the list should take it into
her bead that she was going to win the
big premium, she could do so. She
would have to do some work to mae it
but that was what was expected when
the contest opened. Several bunches of
seven new subscribers or renewals in the
groups tf seven would put the lowest
candidate in the race up among the

Miss Taylor was in the lead at the
last count. Several others are well to
the front and are putting forth every
effort on the homestretch .to win the
coveted prize. Either of these young
ladies can land the prize if they will on
ly take the time to get out and solicit
subscriptiens and renewals.
Every bunch of seven new subscrip.
lions means 9,200 votes .and seven re
newals will bring in 6,500 votes, and the
way to win is to get these new subscrip
tions and renewals, as they count up
rapidly and they carry with them the
big bonus offers which contestants
should be seeking.

contest, which will be on Saturday, the
2Cib of April, we will give the following
bonuses. These will positively be the

A Family of Doctors.
A family "reunion of the Pennington
brothers was held in London this week,
hen four of the brothers all gathered

of Nashville, Tenn.; Dr. J. R. Penning

and M. K. Pennington, of this place.
Dr. P. A. Pennington, of Louisville,
could not be present. The brothers are
all either physicians or dentists, and all
stand high in their profession. We doubt
if a family can be found in this or an

Newspaper Advertising Can
Help Move Food Products
Many millions of dollars are spent an
nually for food products. Many millions
more would be spent for specific brands
if the manufacturers of those brands
brought them to the attention of the
housewives of the land through persis
tent newspaper advertising.
If manufacturers of all food products
specialized in daily newspaper talks to
their various publics, if they told the
public something that was actually
newsv, informative something worth
while, they would not only bespreading
valuable knowledge, but they would be
creating a steady and definite demand
for their products.
Cereals, breads, cakes, tea, coffee,
cocoa, chocolate, meats, hams, saugager,
salt, pepper, and spices all are full of
