CIRCUS TICKETS
The Courier phone has bii.iod si a
lively rule for the pust two days.
"Is the wild animul editor' In?"
"Who won the prises?" "Did I gel
a ticket?" and nil sort of questions.
And then to spend hours with the
names of wild animals hus nearly
made a wild animal of the animal
editor. There were more than 100
lists turned In, many of them con
taining hundreds of names, and some
or the lists hsd names of animals
which never existed, names repeated
from two to six times, several names
for the same animal, bugs, worms,
nxh, birds, and all sons of animals
not one list, hut many of them.
After working hours and hours snd
msking no headway, and one assis
tant working five hours with the dic
tionary on one lint, the nnlmnl edi
tor threw up the sponge and decided
that It was absolutely Impossible to
And ths name of the one with the
largest list of resl animals, so an
other method of distributing the
tickets imiHt he found.
There are in the neighborhood of
175 names of animals allowable, and
It has (been decided that those turn
ing In lists of more than 150 names
will ibe eligible for ths first four
prises, then all lists or 100 or more
and those not winning one of the
four shall be eligible for the next
If prises, and all that remain among
those with 100 names, or more, will
receive a free ticket to the Star
theatre, The names will be decided
by lot ut the Courier office, Thurs
day morning at Hi 30 o'clock and
those who win circus tickets will
receive them at the Courier ofllce
Thursday noon. The lists will be
posted In the Courier window soon
after 0:30.
Remember, tomorrow noon ths
winners are to be on time, so as not
to keep Mr, Barnes waiting, for he
Is a very busy man. We are glsd
to help some boys snd girls to see
the-olretis, snd the only regret Is
that there are not tickets for every
one who sent la a list.
