HERE IS THE PLAN: To the contestant in each district sending in the largest number of
Subscriptions, new or old between now and 6 P. M. August 14 will be awarded one of these
GENUINE DIAMOND RINGS purchased from and now on display at Burmeister and
Andresen Oregon City Jewelers. Subscriptions for the Daily Enterprise will be counted
as double those for the weekly. The winners will be announced and Prizes awarded Sept. 2
the closing night of the contest. Should the winners of the Capital Prizes; the $400 Kimball
Pianos be the ones who send in the most subscriptions under this offer they will be awarded
to the next highest in 'each district. This will give each candidate an equal chance to win a
prize, and surely these beautiful rings are worth making an extra effort to win. Under this
offer each yearly subscription to the Daily Enterprise will count 2,000 votes and each yearly
subscription to the Weekly Enterprise 1,000 votes. Now you who are at the bottom of the
list get-in and work if you can't win one of the Capital Prizes your chances are as good as the
next to win one of these GENUINE DIAMOND RINGS. x
