and also as chairman of the committee, and drew the money from
the Astoria Saving^ Bank, Check No. 35, as> per statement—
The Committee of Tep requisition, thus prepared by Gilbert,
certified in the requisition that it had “received disaster relief

more weeks to go before the race finally comes to a close. In

that the big prizes, remarkable in their value, Ue practically
within their grasp, either to be claimed for their very own or
forfeited to more aggressive opponents during the next few
days, depending to a great extent upon their mpreme efforts

If you halt now for a single moment; if you weaken for a
single day, or if you overlook one opportunity to better your
chances to win, you are taking the desperate chance o f toeing
the prize you moat desire, already partially won spd which really
belongs to you, and you are nearly certain to bring dismal dis

take it as sorely as you will yourself.
Don’t forget that this is a battle hereafter. Craft helps;
speed, too, but the rugged strength and lasting qualities of a

Vote discreetly; hustle swiftly; watch and battle persist

the following week only 2000 votes are given; 26,000 votes are
