Fortunnto ivieed will he that lady,
who at tho ch so ot tho contest, has
secured tho lf.rgcst number of votes
nnd wins tlw .mini prize. Tho Itwi
nutomobllo tint she will receive will
moro than compensate her for tho

to say nntlilng r.r tho honor, and tho
glory of tho victory that will bo

such that it i" JiiRt nt likely that tho

another, as It will 1u won regardless
ot district limitations.
There will bo a groat many sur

part of tho candidates competing or
thoso who by paying subscriptions to
the Mirror nsstit tho candidates, as
every dollar paid In to tho Mirror
during tho contest Is' for subscription
and not for otes.
Tho Idea nt tho contest Is to In
creaso tho subscription list of tho
Dally and SoiM-Wcekly Mirror, and
not to sell votes. No papers will bo
sold for tho ballots, or can votes bo
secured In iv othor manner than by
the slnglo tin' ots dipped from the

ON PAYMENT OF SUliSCItlPTION.
There is something essentially
American In tho Idea of a popular
voting conistt. The small clement
of chanco lha' enters Into a contest
of this hind adds to tho Interest, ns
that that wo can secure without effort
Is seldom worth considering. But,
when thero is such a grand display of
prizes as Is offered by tho Mirror
that may o put forth by tho candi
dates will bo moro than compensated.
Every ladv wants an nutomobllo,
