SO. 78 THE VOTE RAPIDLY GROWING Warm Weather Is Stimulating—The Gold Watch Period Ends on Sat urday of This Week. Grace Patterson 76235 Lucy Christ 66775 Nancy Frost 57185 Gertrude Haubrick 42110 Amy R. Betts 30555 Loretta I. Glass 13210 Hazel Burr 8750 Florence Culver 3700 Myrtle VanSlyke 1785 Mrs. John M. Farnsworth. 850 Elsie Dinger 500 Nora Enright 300 Julia Montague 210 Hattie Mantz 200 Witn the advent of good weather, interest in the Piano Contest is com mencing to boom, and the vote of the six leading contestants has grown quite perceptibly since the last count was published. While the leaders are making great strides, their positions remain unchanged, a somewhat remark able feature which leads to the belief that as the contest grows older the rivalry and excitement will proportion ally increase, and that it is anybody's race up to the time the last ballot is deposited. All of the girls tell us that they have promises of many votes, and in some cases the promises are so old that the girls are rather fearful that the promises are forgotten. If you, reader, are among the number who have promised to help some girl, let this be a memory-gigger. Don't put it off, but give her your money to-day. It means much to her and is a matter of no inconvenience to you. Remember that the contest for the gold watch closes Saturday of this week, and back subscription money does the work. This is the week to help your little girl friend win a fine watch. It is unnecessary for us to tell the girls to hustle for they are doing it. Office Closed.
