1 WEI FESH I WILL BE AWA TO CAN Those Who Finish Stronges' Campaign Closing Very itate are Lost?Aim 1 ' There are only four more (lays of ? "suspense before the winners will be 'known In the West Virginian's Great Golden Festival. These last few days are very perilous days for all the lead wo. uvwever. r*verjone i? wonting at top speed In an effort to cross the line Inst ahead of his competitors and Rain the thousand dollars in gold, the . five hundred or one of the eight other valuable prizes. Of course it Is to be expected that this final week the rumors will fly thick and fast. One can hear more fairy tales these days than there arc contestants. Of course it Is absurd to put any credance In any of them. Most of the candidates are too sensible to believe any of them anyhow. All realize that the stories have been started to scare some of the leaders, to make some of the ton notchers hesitate for even a day . If they can secure a halt In a competitors' campaign for only a day, the scandalmongers have accomplished something, for in the meantime the talebearers arc working themselves with unabatable energy. The campaign remains very even, so there is no hope of determining who really has the better chance until it Is all over and the Judges have made the final count and awarded the prizes. One thine is certain?the nrizen will go to tboee . candidates who have turned in the most money on subscriptions and who have consequently re : 'ceived the most votes. It is the votes that will count, remember that. No one will secure any information at the finish, as some have so fondly predicted. It cannot be done. No one knows anything about the roles of a cnu ; didate except the candidate himself. Of course, if he Is fool enough to tell i how many votes he has, naturally he 'must expect to be beaten. The only way under the sun for people to find tout the standing of any candidate is for the candidate to tell of it himself. If you don't believe that. Just try to get a little informaion yourself and see how easy it Is. not. When the Golden Festival was announced It was announced that this campaign would be different from anything that had ever gone before in the 'way of a circulation campaign. The manger has kept his word. He has been absolutely fair and impartial at all times. He has enforced the rules l at all times and tried to give everyone) the same Impartial treatment. He had tried to show all the candidates how best to work to advantage. If - some do not win who think they should win, of course the manager expects I to be blamed, but at the same time f be will feel that ho has done his duly by the campaign and the candidates. When the votes are counted and the awards made the public will then lie assured that the awards went to those who by their efforts merited them. The ; others will see that they could have iwon easily had they followed the sus | gestlons of the manager und kept 1 everlasting at It. They will all se t ' that these last few days played the [most Important part in the winning or all the prizes. Either aim higu and :win or sit tight and lose. Your own i efforts these last few days win dotaurine Just exact.y where you will Istand on the list of winners.
