chance will be 'fdjerer a matter
of memory and In the.Jnal wind
up- on the 'gist' 'day* of August, some
' one . win>'be''a tew votes..behind the
winnerk And then'what, thought, will
enter the minds of the ones who have
fallen behind In the rpce. They will
say, "Oh, If 1 had known this,. I could
have secured .the* required number of
votes while the special offer for. double
votes was good and not half tried."
That may be the conclusions reached
by some but to the most vigilant that
will not occur.. They.-are now trying
and will continue to try to geteverjr
vote that It Is possible to secure he- '
fore Saturday evening and..they will
turn them Into the ballot box while '
., 11,. ,
they are worth- the most to them.'
It Is getting easier every day to
secure votes in large quantities* as
most all subscribers are resizing that
It Is just as p'rudent to pay their subscriptions
to those who are their
friend In the race for the pony and
give them the benefit of the, -Votes
which are to thehi more valuable just
now than gold, or precious stones, as.
to wait and pay Itvlater on to the circulation
This was very clearly Illustrated
yesterday when a friend ot Phillip
Tatterson's came In the office and
voted 7,001) votes for him which would
have been enough to change the roll
of honor In district number three and
would have placed him at the head ot
the list had not a gentleman from
Monongah come into town on the
some klnd'of an errand hut being de
slrous -of helping Forest Springer,
cast his votes for him and thus the
day and the honor roll were saved to
Forest A big gain Is made In' the
Vcte In the third district to-day but
as the prizes for this district alone
are worth '$75.00 and cannot be duplicated
for less. It goes without say- ,
Ing that a sprightly effort will be
made to secure them before the ending
of the contest and to-morrow Is
the-best chance of all to do It. The ,
