Don't ( think because you had a windfall of vote last week and ex pect to win a ifew of those certificates, this week, that you can rest, on your oars ami lafigh at the other fellows You will get badly fooled if you dr that. Prizes such us the Plain Talk are offering do not go begginsr, many shrewed people are in the race and you can't tell what they can do. On the other hand don't believe all you hear about the million of votes some candidates have up their sleeves. Some of the candidates consider it good business to try to scare out the timid ones by mysteriously hinting at the tremendous reserve they have stored away in their breast pockets, while others who hiay be twice as dangerous go around telling that they don't ex pect to win a thing, but just want to get some excitement out of the con test. Suit yourself m what you say but don't, believe all you hear. Next Thursday October 12th will tell to you. Ej?fie JAckson Mmager.
