THE HERALD PRIZE CONTEST
FOR THE GAY MASKERS.
Twenty Prizes or More To Be Offered on Mardi Gras
Day By the Advertising Merchants of
GIVEN AWAY TUESDAY, FEB. 28th, (MARDI GRAS)
AFTERNOON FROM THE PLATFORM IN
FRONT OF HERALD OFFICE.
Merchants Contribute Generously--Prizes for Almost
Any Kind of Markers--Everybody Turn Out and
Have a Good Time--Bring Your Bands and Tin
We expect this year to make the Herald Prize Contest for Mardi Gras
Day a much greater success than it was last year, if this is possible. A great
many more prizes will be offered and a better arrangement is now contem
plated in awarding the prizses. A platform will be built in front of The Herald
office upon which the different characters will stand when the prizes are
awarded so that the big crowds will be able to see them without undue crowd
ing. Already we are in receipt of a great number of prizes.
The firm of Grossman-Weinfeld Millinery Co. have donated a fine $5.00
Spring hat; Mayer Israel & Co. have offered a gentleman's hat, while Chas. A.
Kaufman Co., Ltd., is donating a fine silk umbrella. Mr. Jos. Tallon is going
to remember a male masker with a quart bottle of Harmony Club Rye. We are
in receipt of a letter to-day from Mr. Bloom, of the Economy Skirt Co., 1620
Dryades street, in which they offer to a lady wearing the best hobble skirt
effect, a fine $5.00 skirt, to be selected from among the many hundreds they
have in stock. Mr. Bloom says in his letter: "We are very much interested in
your Prize Contest for local maskers in Algiers and we believe this should be
encouraged, and in order that we may add our mite, we are pleased to donate
one of our fine $5.00 skirts." Mr. Louis G. Webert, dry goods merchant, do
nates a half dozen pair of stockings, while Mr. Frank C. Duvic gives an oil
heater, and John Lailtte Co., Ltd., who are always'on the lookout for the atom
ach, have donated a fine ham. Mr. Joe Renecky, of the Renecky Shoe Store,
gives a pair of shoes; Mr. J. E. Huckins will furnish for one of the maskers
sufficient wall paper to paper a room. Mr. John P. Vezien, who also looks
after the appetite, has donated a box of spaghetti, while Peter Rupp, our popu
lar druggist, who looks after the welfare of the young miss, donates a half-pint
bottle of Honeysuckle perfume; our enterprising Jules Bodenger gives to one
of the maskers a high-grade porcelain enameled washstand.
These are only a few of the prizes that are offered to date, and The Herald
expects by next issue to have the full number of prizes, which we hope will
reach twenty-five or more.
These prizes are offered in The Herald Prize Contest by the advertising
merchants of The Herald. The full particulars of the Contest will be pub
lished in the two issues prior to Mardi Gras so that there will be no misunder
standing as to how the prizes will be awarded.
