Never in the Manager’s Experience Has He
Seen Such Interest Shown so Early
In a Contest.
Now Comes the All-important Period in the Contest
—‘‘Booster Period” Opens To-day—the Best
Time of All Times to Enter the Contest is
During “Booster Period”—Remember,
No Losers; Everybody Wins.
To-day is the beginning of “Booster Period” in The
Herald's great Automobile Contest, which means that con
testants themselves and friends of contestants can boost
their standing by securing one or two years’ subscription,
or more, and get a tremendous vote. Single subscriptions
count now—they count big. Therefore, it will be well to
“make hay while the sun shines.”
WHY IS “BOOSTER PERIOD”?
What does “Booster Period” mean? It simply means
to boost, and everyone knows what that is. It means that
this is positively the best time in the whole contest for the
people to subscribe for The Newnan Herald and boost their
favorite. “Booster Period” means that every yearly sub
scription turned in by March 18 will count 20,000 votes.
THINK OF IT! This is a bonus of 15,000 extra votes for
just one subscription—this is extra, besides the regular scale
of 5,000 votes. A two-year subscription will count for 43,-
000 votes. See the complete list below. From this it will
be seen that it is to the advantage of every contestant to
insist upon their friends giving them at least a two-year
subscription or more RIGHT NOW while it counts so
much. Remember, “Booster Period” ends March 18. Such
a great bonus vote as is being offered right now may not
happen again in this contest. Study the Booster scale
well. Cut it out and keep it where you can see what a
one-year, a two-year or a five-year subscription will do for
DURING “BOOSTER PERIOD” THE FOLLOWING
SCALE OF VOTES WILL PREVAIL.
Regular scale of votes. Extra votes. Total votes.
1- year subscription 5,000 15,000 20,000
2- year subscription 12,000 31 000 43,000
3- ycar subscription 18,000 47,000 65,000
4- year subscription 25,000 63,000 88,000
5- year subscription 30,000 80,000 110,000

Take out your pencil and do a little figuring; then stop
and think of the valuable prizes. The grand prize, 5-pas-
senger Ford automobile. Second prize, $100 in gold. Third
prize, $30 in gold. Fourth prize, $20 in silver; and 10 per
cent, to all non-winning bona fide contestants.
THE FIELD IS RIPE.
Contestants will find the field ripe right now. There
are many whose subscriptions are about to expire, and they
will renew if you ask them—not for just a year, but they
will give you a couple of years—maybe more. There are
hundreds of others who want their home paper, and if
asked they will take it. Explain to them what kind of a
paper it is, that they should have it, and that they should
subscribe right now. Above all, always be sure that you
have a copy of the paper with you. You’ll need your share
of these subscriptions, and you’ll want to get them during
“Booster Period,” when the total votes count so much.
“LIVE WIRES,” TAKE NOTICE.
There is nothing that will get a “live wire” on his or
her metal any quicker than a friendly struggle like this. It
means tense rivalry from start to finish—a friendly battle
of ballots that will put everyone to a severe test as to their
capability and power to operate a successful campaign. We
are conducting a subscription campaign, and giving away a
small fortune in prizes, headed with a handsome 5-passen
ger Ford automobile. Each contestant should be conduct
ing a campaign of their own to win one of these prizes, and
they must see that their machinery is well oiled and in
first-class running shape. It must be so to spell SUCCESS.
IF YOU WORK YOU WIN.
Isn’t it a fine thing to know that you are sure to win
(pyway, and be rewarded for the work you do? This paper
wouldn't ask you for your time and your efforts and influ
ence for nothing. Every bona fide contestant in this race
who does not win one of these prizes will be given TEN
PER CENT, of all the money that they turn in for sub
scriptions to The Newnan Herald. This applies to old and
new subscriptions, or mcney on account. A careful record
is kept, as explained in last week’s paper.
NOW, REMEMBER “BOOSTER PERIOD" CLOSES
This is a mighty short time. Hustle in your subscrip
tions and start your name toward the top. This is the
time in the great race when votes pile up at a rapid clip.
Turn again to the scale. Hard work now will reap big re
wards for you that you can’t get later on when the field
has been thoroughly worked.
CONTEST MANAGER ALWAYS ON THE JOB.
Talk with him whenever you have an opportunity and
let him give you the benefit of his experience in many
contests. It might be just the thing that you are
needing. His services are just the same to every contes
tant in this race. He plays no favorites. An equal chance

To the Farmers of Coweta and Adjoining Counties:
I will have in front of my place of business, 14 Jefferson
street, Newnan, on Friday and Saturday, March 5 and 6, a
public demonstration of my I. H. C. OIL ENGINE and
MEADOW MILL. On the dates named I will be glad to
grind one bushel of corn FREE for any farmer. Will have
on exhibition also all kinds of farm implements. Have just
ordered a car-load of Binders and Hay Presses.
Will be glad to take your order for anything in my line
on above stated demonstration days, either cash or credit.
Let This 1 H C Engine Do
N INE years ago I H C engines first appeared
on the market. Men who bought them at
that time report them still doing an honest
day’s work. They are always ready to run, they
have more power than you pay for, and they develop
that power on very little fuel.
When you buy an 1 H C engine, it is set up and'
tested on your farm by experts. If anything hap
pens to it any time, w« have repair parts right here.
The longer hfe and leeserap>keep expense of I H C
engine* makes them cost far less per year ef service
than inferior engine*. That's why we sell 1 H C
Sizes 1 to 60-H. P., in stationary, portable, and
tractor styles. Fuel — kerosene or gasoline. Come
in :'nd see our samples and list of references, or,
write for catalogue and prices.
