That it is no wonder elastic cotton felt has taken the place of all
other forms of filling for mattresses and this is the concensus [of opinion
of ail those who have spent a night on one of our elastic felt mattresses.
They are more reasonably priced than you imagine and if you sleep on
^ one for a single night, you will not be without it for twice the price we
ask. When you consider how much of the time you sleep and how
much sleep means to you, you will readily agree that [our invitation to
inspect these mattresses is well worth your consideration.
Contest Closed December 24. 1
The Free Press’ Grand Voting!
Contest which began in October and
closed last Saturday, December 24th |
was a hotly contested one from the
beginning until the final wind up.
Out of the score of contestants
nominated by their friends only
three had pluck enough to stay in
the fight until the finish, and these
were handsomely rewarded for their
zeal and energy displayed in secur- 1
ing new subscriptions and renewals j
to the Free Press.
Our Contest Manager, Mr. C. W-
Corley, conducted the contest in a
straightforward business way and
at no time was any partiality shown
to either contestant by anyone con
nected with this office.
That the Free Press is the ‘Peeplaa
Paper’ is shown by the interest in
the contest displayed by the people
all over the county, and the large
number of new subscribers added
to our already large list, and we
may in future put on another, but
an entirely different contest
Below we publish the standing of
the contestants in the final count
Mrs. L S. Sims - 532,885
Mrs. E. S. Lyle - 309,845
Miss Myrtie Fields - 75,690

prize, a fine Piano; Mre. Lyle the
2nd prize, a handsome suit of Par
lor Furniture: Miss Fields the 3rd
prize, a Ladies Gold Watch.
Falls From Moving Train.
Last Monday night Mr. Raymond
Fleming fell from the platform of
the 8:20 train and sustained very
severe injuries. He was picked up
unconcious and carried to his home
in an automobile, and at present is
resting easier, but is not out of
danger as it is feared that he may
have sustained internal injuries.
Just how the accident happened
is not known, but it is supposed that
he boarded the train, when it stop
ped at the depot, for the purpose of
talking to friend, and in .attempting
to ’get off after the train was in
motion he Jlost his footing and fell
to the ground.
