: o semi the dim. to th. top man.
iT..e average person i ceives any.

here which is a little bit low for the
average ot the country.
The method is simple and a press
account said the other day that, it
dates away back to 1890. Mr. John
Q. Citizen receives a letter wii.i five
names on it. By the simple exptdiant
of sending the top name a dime
quarter, dollar, or whatever the letter
calls for, he is authorized to
put his name at the bott mi of the
1 list and eliminate the fellow that
gets the dime because by mathematical
analysis t.he top man's name
has appeared on 566,560 letters
(count 'em) which, at a dime a
i short, biings $5,665.60. Of course
each person that receives a letter is
asked not to break the chain and
send out letters to five of his friends.
Well, any man, no matter how
brilliant he is, figures wasting a
dime, five stamps and the time it
takes to copy the letters will be well
repaid bcause all his friends are as
big a fool as he is.
Anyway somebody might have got
rich off the scheme but not anyone
we know of . In fact Walt Mauney
holds the lead right now because
somebody got a letter the other day
and Walt's name was next to the

sent out have hit a jack pot as yet.
