No Other Notice of the Contest Can be Given for Contest Closes Monday, November 24. Your Last Chance. On account of the piano being delayed the closing of the con test is changed from Nov. 15 to Nov. 24th. There are just lots of people tho did not take the Picayune and there are just lots of others yet.

Monday, November 24 is the last day, and by 3 o'clock of that day the winner of the piano will be known. You should realize this, and if ever you should in tend to win a thing, now is the time. Some contestants have said they do not want the con test to close so soon. They have had several months in which to pile up votes, for just this crisis. Procrastination in this contest may have lost the piano to some one, 5 wo or three contestants. This race may end like that of the hare and tortoise} persever ance often wins. You still have time to get lots of votes, but remember, you’ll not have the chance again. Do you realize that a $400 dol lar piano is to be given away to the contestant having the larg est number of votes Monday Nov. 24. Why are you letting them have it with just a little work? It would be ijn to make them race for it anyway; but you are content to sit by peacefully and watch someone else get the prize while one of your very best friend could, perhaps, have won it with help. But you cannot realize the beauty of the prize until you see some other contestant with it, it seems. Perhaps you believe the writer is just trying to scare you for his own profit, but that’s not the case, and Nov. 24 you are sure ly to see the soundness of the advice which has been printed rb;Lt here from time to time.

Advt There are brave manly hearts driven into evil company for lack of love and sympathy at home. There are tender hearts for a kind word or a caress from father or mother, It is not total de pravity on their part that takes boys into the streets and from there into the biliard saloon and from the biliard saloon to the dram shop, it is too often the lack of heavenliness about the home. It is because home is not a heaven with its sheltering arms of love. It is because father’s manner repels and mother op pressed with fatigue, has no time to make home pleasant for her boys. Then why not strike at the root of the evil? Make home what it should be and your bovs will stay there and be a comfort to you. “Lead us not into temp tation," with them might be, “Drive us not into temptation." —Murfreesboro Messenger.
