The past week has been the busi- j est one of the contest, thus far. It seemed ns if all of the contestants wanted to gain the top of the list this week. And, as predicted, there are many surprises in store for nil. The special ballot offer has been made for the coming week, is the best that, has been made—and there will not be a better one made. Ton have our word for it, that there positively will not be a better offer. The contestants may earn ns many of there special ballots as they desire, and if they hope to figure in the distribution of prizes they had better secure several of them, This offer makes it possible for those who are near the bottom of the list, to get to the top very rap- Even those who haven’t been nominated as yet may enter the race now, and with a very little ef fort, find themselves among the timers at the close of the contest. (If the special ballot offer were on this week, anew candidate could come in this morning and by pay 'ng ?20. on subscription, be at the head of the list.)' The regular tchedule for a S2O. payment, Would give 5,000 votes, then the two special ballots would count 10,000, the nomination blank would count 1,000, the total .would be 16,000 votes, making enough to head the list. STOP AND THINK, ARE NOT THESE VALUABLE PRIZES WORTH TRYING FORf A few Suggestions to the Friends of Contestants. At this time, a few words as to the method to employ in assisting the contestants, will not eon s amiss. It seems that it would be no more than fair to your friends, it von should subscribe to the paper or if you are already a subscriber, pay a little in advance, you expect to pay some time, why not now? Haven’t vou a mother-father— brother-or sister, that is interest ed in the happenings in this vicinity, w’hy not send the paper to them for a year? Many people are heard to say, “I certainly do hope that wins the Grand Prize,” yet these same people have failed to support their friends, except by verbal as sistance. Your friends need your support. Now is the time to give them that support. They want to be winners- Votes will make tern winners. All the candidates on the list, , have a chance to win one of the three beautiful prizes. There is no one candidate, who can be over hauled by a little effort. Remember, the number of votes, resulting from the getting of only a few subscriptions, is going to make a difference in the way in STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, MAY 6, 1910 j which the moe will end. There- j fnrp it behooves the contestants to leave no stone unturned lost they they realize at the end, the truth fulness of the saying, ‘‘OF ALL SAD WORDS OF TONGUE OR I‘EN, THE SADEST ARE THESE IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.” "Might have beei, ’’that they had won a prize, in place of their com petitor. Less than two weeki nntil the Con test closes —Do all yon can, while the special offer is on. In Memory of Brother W. H. McCann. Whereas, our beloved brother, W. H. McCann was a true and faithful member of Ridgely Lodge No 23,1. 0.0. F. Starkville, Miss. He was also a true husband and father and a useful citizen, having lived up to the principles of Odd fellowship as near as it is possible for one to do. Standing above ex perience his ponderons character made itself felt on every occassion, in whatever corayany or dealings. His pure manhood was much in evidence, and no man could men tion his name but in praise. May his surviving children emulate his noble example, and keep his char acter ever fresh in their memory, and live secure in Jesus Christ. Therefore be it resolved: 1. That this lodge has in his death lost one of its best and most influentiol members. 2. That we express to his wife and children our profoundest sympathy and condole with them in their grief, and that the memory of his puie life and the Grace <f God cheer and comfort the hearts of the loved ones. 3. That we join with the Long view community in general in mourning the loss of one of its noblest citizens. 4. That a copy of these resolu tions be spread upon the minutes, and a copy be furnished the family of the deceased, and also a copy be given to the town papers for publication. Signed by Committee, R.

An event of the week which should appeal to the interest and challenge the public spirit of thou sands of men, women and children in Atlanta, is the performance of the musical extravaganza, ‘' Jappy ” for the benefit of the Uncle Remus Memorial. Three performances are to be given, Thursday and Friday even ings and Saturday matinee. A cast of 3()0 children and adults of Atlanta, assisted by several pro fessionals from outside the city, have been rehearsing for several weeks, and people privileged to witness these “try-outs” testify that the extravaganza will be one of the most charming and pictur esque ever seen in Atlanta. The proceeds for the three per formances are to be applied to the purchase of the West End home of '*.. ■ . w - ' in I beg to inform the public tbat I j bought tbe Bankrupt Stock‘of M.

Plans are already on foot to make a branch public, library of part of the home place, while other portions of the building, notably the work-rooms of Uncle Remus, are to be maintained as they were iiuhis life-time that pilgrains from the country over may pay homage to his memory. It is also expected that a play ground for children will occupy part of the spacious premises surrounding the house.
