tho holder to ono guess- on tho urknown number, and all guossora ox
press satisfaction at tho opportunity and the manner in which tho con

All aro growing more and moro anxious to havo tho fortunate day
arrive. Evory poreon who has only ono guosa seems to throb with
that samo feeling of anxiety as tho ones who hav6 in moro, and, in

a dozen more.
Several parties havo made their guesses by drawings threo figures
from a sot just aB tho unknown number was drawn, and thus thoy
hopo to have their conclusions similar to tho fortunato ono, but when
it Is realized what a multltudo of numbers aro possible from such
combinations oven this process cannot Insure success. Tho plain fact
is that ove'ry gucsser Is on absolutely tho samo ground, for thoro can
bo no proforred class and no favored fow. Tho absolute oquallty and
falrnoss of tho proposition Is what pleases every participant in tho
As a result of tho guessing contest subscriptions aro coming to Tho
Journal from many unexpected sources. Many persons In and about
Salem, as well as the various towns of tho county, aro ordorlng, ro
