Only Two Weeks More
On December 24th the voting
contest will close. The Herald
has been devoting considerable
space to telling students and
their friends of this contest
but it has brought forth but little
results. Just why this is so we
are unable to tell. We offered
these prizes in good faith, sup
posing that there would be a
number of the students of the
Normal who would devote a few
minutes of their time trying to
induce their friends to take the
paper. Very little interest has
been shown by them, but there
is yet time to redeem themselves
and get enough new subscribers
for the Herald to enable us to
make the cost of the prizes. Both
the rug and the pen have been
on exhibition for over a month
and no one need plead ignorance.
The student receiving the
largest number of votes will have
the choice of the rug or pen the
next largest will receive the re
maining prize and the third
largest will receive two dollars
in cash.
Every new subscriber will re
ceive a ballot good for 100 votes
which can be voted for any stu
dent they wish to receive the
