ones aro hustling to the full extent
realizing that right now is the time
to eineh things anil even win the
valuable little farm. The contestants
who make it a point to get as many
subscription as possible right now
will have a reserve fund that will
put them on "easy street" during
the strenuous times to come. There
is no candidate in the race whose
lead cannot be overcome by a few
hours' active efforts. Right now is
the best, time in the whole contest
to get started in the great race for
the HMle farm or handsome piano.
Inactive Candidates.
There are unusual good chances
in several localities of Cape (iirardeau
county to get a lot of subscriptions
nnd win a prize in this great contest.
Why not get started today. The
contestants are very inactive and
there is really unusual good fields
to work in. With a couple of hours'
work, any contestant from these
localities could easily gain a big
lead and with a little energetic work
between now and the close of the
contest, could cinch the grand prize.
Why not start, your race and win
the big prize?
Those names, of candidates who
do now show some activity within
the net few days will be dropped
from the content. Do not blame the
contest manager for this action.
You have only yourself to blame
if vou do not get into the race and

Success is the reward of persistency.
How can a person win n thousand
or two tliousaml dollars easier than
by an honest effort for the next
few weeks in working for this grand
little farm? We honestly do not
believe there is such a chance for
the next few weeks in the whole of
Cape (iirardeau county, to secure the
value of this farm, as there is right
here in this contest. You say,
"I can't win." Some one will win,
why not you? You can't win if you
make no effort, but you con win if
you go actively at work and ask
your friends to assist you. Get them
to subscribe for a year, or several
years for that matter. That will
roll up big votes and you will soon
stand at the top.
A Few Suggestions.
Now for a few suggestions as to
your plan of campaign. Never neg

"Directors must direct or be held j
liable," said a 1'nited States judge i
not long ago when entering up a
heavy judgment against the recal
eitrant directors of a national bank
in a country town. The bank had
operated on a plan all too familiar
to this country that is, the cashier
had run it practically to suit him
self and thi' directors had complacent
ly taken his word that he was run
ning it properly. When it transpired
that the cashier had looted the in
stitution the stockholders sought to
recover from the negligent directors
and succeeded.
This is good law and g I business
morals. A suit for many million
has already Iwi n brought against
those directors of the St. bonis A
