Dr. Sadler demonstrates that he is
a practical physician, not a faddist.
He confines himself to plain words in
his talks and his language can be un
derstood and his directions carried
out even by school children. A prac

Dr. Sadler's wife, Lena K. Sadler,
assisted by the trained nurse gives a
lecture than which there is probably
none so unique on the public platform
today. Her subjects are similar to
those of her husband, and with the as
sistance of the. nurse and a young boy
are acted out before the audience. Her
subjects are the- home treatment of
diseases, the care of the baby and the
feeding of children, and are straight
from the shoulder. They contain a
message which every mother can take
home with her.

much to add to the entertainment.

SEC. GORDON STATES THAT THE

Secretary Gordon of the Middlewest
Fire Insurance Co., stated to a Times
Record representative that today the
company touched the two hundred
thousand mark in ihail premium re
ceipts the figures being $200,928.32.
(Last year the Middlewest Fire In
surance Co. wrote in (hail premiums
about $150,000. The Times-JRecord be
lieves the above show® that North Da
kota people are supporting a North
Dakota company and believes there
is no reason why the Middlewest Fire
in a. very short time should not lead
all companies in North Dakota in fire
and hail premium receipts. Secretary
Gordon stated that about 300 hail
losses had been reported that the
company had their adjusters in the
field settling the losses as rapidly as
possible but that !he could not state
at the present time what the losses
would amount to.

Out for new subscribers.
Are you with us?
The Times Record wants many
more subscribers in the big happy
family before Fall comes.
We are going to pay liberally for
those who aid in placing Valley
City's enterprising evening paper in
While our last campaign
brought us many new subscribers
we believe that the prizes offered in
this coming campaign, under the
liberal conditions will appeal to
more people and give them some
thing of greater value to work for.
We are going to give something
that nearly everyone has longed for
—an automobile—yes, two of them.
These automobiles will appeal to
everyone—men or women, and the
children. The winners of these ma
chines can keep them or they can
promptly turn them into pockets full
If the Times-Record put out a body
of solicitors to cover North Dakota
the cost would run into thousands
of dollars. We are going td give tl^fc
people a chance to earn that money.
Besides, canvassers are sometimes a
nuisance. Our big prize campaign
will make a lot more noise and
there's nothing like having some
fun along with business. The old
apple paring party got the apples
pared, the apple butter made and
everybody had a good time. This
was better than to hire a dozen par
ers to pare the apples. We are out
for more subscribers and we are go
ing to have no end of fun before the
campaign is over. There are a few
surprises in store for those who act
ively enter the competition.
The circulation campaign will only
last about six weeks, the closing
night being September 7th, on aSat
urday night, at 10 o'clock, sharp,
when the judges will count the
votes and award the prizes. This
competition will be more interesting
and far reaching than any ever
undertaken by a Central North
Dakota newspaper. The prizes are
not only rich in material value, but
are in keeping with this big under
taking. Division of the territory
covered by the Times-Record makes
the prize winning easy for those de
termined ones who enter. Energy
and ambition are the requisites for
Purely a Business Proposition
The Times-Record, at the outset,
pledges absolutely good faith and
fairness to all the people who will
be engaged in the campaign.
This is not a "something for noth
ing" scheme, in fact it is no scheme
at all. Neither is it a charitable un
dertaking on the part of the Times
Record. It is ia business proposition
pure and simple. The object is to
advertise this newspaper and to in
crease its circulation and to win a
welcome in every household in the
field that it covers.
Mors lathe Idea In a Nutshell
The prizes are to be given to the
candidates securing the highest
number of votes in their respective
districts and there are two ways of
getting votes—first, by clipping the
coupons which will be published
daily and will be worth from one to
fifty votes, and will be credited to
the candidate whose name is written
A quicker way of getting votes is
by securing paid-in-advance sub
scriptions. The schedule published
elsewhere in this issue shows just

What To Do First.
iSend or bring in your name on the
regular nomination blank or by letter
saying that you wish to enter the
competition and the Circulation Cam
paign Department will give you full
particulars. The "early bird" in a
short campaign of this kind can get
the promise of assistance and sub
scriptions that later on would be
promised to someone else. If you are
a "wise old owl" you will start today.

territory covered by the campaign
may participate in the competition.
Candidates living at a distance from
Valley City will receive the same at

safely guarded as those of the candi
dates living in this city. The cam
paign is for people living in Valley
City and surrounding territory, and
not for any one section. Those who
enter from outside districts can rest
assured that they will be fairly treat
ed. Every person who actively en
ters this competition will stand a
good show of winning a prize. Prom
inent business men whose standing
in the community is unquestionable
will be selected as judges to count
the votes and award the prizes at the
close of the campaign on September
7 at 10 p. m.
The Ballot Box
There is a ballot box in the busi
ness office of the Times-Record where
votes may be deposited for candidates
or nominations cast. Those who de
sire to vote are welcome to do so at
For the benefit of those who cannot
call during the day time, the Circu
lation Campaign Department of th»
Times-Record will be kept open eve
nings until 8 o'clock. The Campaign
Manager and his assistants are al
ways on the job and will be pleased
to have candidates and- their friends
call at any time. Campaign Mana
ger's office, 1st floor Times-Record
Building. Phone No. 4.
The first thing to do to enter the
campaign is to cut out the nomina
tion blank which will be found on
the contest page. Each nomination
blank counts for 1,000 votes. Not
over five nominations will be ac
cepted for any one candidate. Fill in
the blanks with your name, address,
etc., if you wish to nominate your
self, or with the name of any one
else whom you may choose to nomi
nate. Be very caieful to wr'te plain
ly, so that there can be no possibili
ty of an error being made. We also
wish to impress upon candidates the
importance of securing the correct
name and address of all new sub
scribers so there will be no unneces
sary delay in starting the paper.
The second thing to do—send or
bring the nomination to the Times
Record, who will give you credit for
5,000 votes towards winning one of
the 14 prizes, and will send you a re
ceipt book to be used in securing
subscriptions to this paper. A repre
sentative of the Times-Record will
call on you as soon as possible and
explain the plan of the campaign in
detail, if there is anything you do
not understand, and will render you
any assistance possible. It is better
to ask questions now than to have
to correct mistakes later.
The third thing to do—As sooit as
,you are nominated, see your friends
get them to subscribe for The Times
Record giving you their votes (the
vote scale will be found on the contest
page). Send all subscriptions to Cam
paign Dept., Times-Record, together
with the proper remittance and upon
receipt of same votes will 'be issued.
Once started do not get discouraged.
Pay no attention to how many votes
some one else may |ihave to their
credit look after your own candidacy,
and thereby set a good example for
the other candidates.
The Fourth thing to do—As soon as
you have secured one subscription, go
after another, during your spare time.
You do not need to let this campaign
business interfere with your regular
work, however, if you were to spend
your time doing nothing but securing
subscriptions to the Times-Record^
the reward for your efforts would
quite suffice to repay you many times
over. Think what a wonderful profit
would be yours were you to win one of
the three automobiles. Your salary
would be equivalent to $225 per week
if you were to work every day during
the next six weeks.
