Beginning Thursday, October 4th, we will inaugurate a Subscription and Voting contest for the
pursose of increasing our subscription list a few thousand, if possible, and to this end we have decided
to give away a number of handsome presents and valuable prizes.
The Watchman is the leading family newspaper in Rowan, it gives you all the news, especirlly the
home news, written without color or favoritism. It intends to stand up and do battle for the masses
instead of toadying to the classes, it stands for good government and honest politics, and expects to
give its readers full value for their money, so if you do not get a prize, you will not be a loser. If yov
.subsctibe, and pay for it, you have our guarantee that you will fet your paper. We have been in the
newsparer buisness almost constantly for the last twenty-five years and there is not a man in the
county who can truthfully assert that he has paid us a subscription without having received a- paper
to the full value of the amount paid. So you nred not hesitate to subscribe on4hatscore. If it our
fault that you do not get the paper, we stand ready to refund your money, That's fair, is'nt it?
In this contest we are going to cut the regular subscription price in half , giving you one full year
for 50c, provided two come in at a time. That is, for every dollar paid in we will send the Watchman
to each of any two names furnished one full year, or two years to any one name. A single year's subs
scription will not be received for less than 75c. This arrangement is made so as to compensate any
one who will trouble himself tb get us a new subscriber, or to make it worth while to pay two years
at a time. There are some who are behind a year and this willie an Opportunity for such to get
themselves in good standing. v
With each subscription paid for a coupon will be issued entitling to (1) one vote for every cent paid,
but should a subscription be secured by an agent, he will also be. entitled to a like.number of votes.'
For instance, when $1.00 is received, the subscriber is given 100 votes, but if the name if brought in by
an agent, he also will be given 100 votes for his trouole. These votes are to be cast for any young
lady you may wish to have the prize. '
1st Prize. To the one who receives the highest number of votes wilz be given, absolutelp free, a
handsome solid gold, ladies' watch, value $30 00.
2nd Prize. To the one who receives the next largest number will be given $10.00 in gold.
3rd Prize. The next $5.00 in gold.
4th Prize. The next $3.00 cash.
5th Prize. The next one year's subscription to a popular magazine, value $1.00.
6th Prize. To the agent who secures for The Watchman the largest list of names, in addition to
the above prizes will be given, as a personal reward for his good work, $10,00 in gold.
The coupons will be numbered and must be voted, within ten (10) days after being issued.
Any of these prizes would make an excellent Christmas gift to your best girl, to your wife or a
daughter. What could be more appropriate as a gift to a young lady than a solid gold watch on
Christmas eve? This watch may be seen on exhibition at Gorman & Green's Jewelry Store.
Any acceptable person may onter the contest. 1
If you intend to make an effort to secure one of these prizes, go to work at once, don't delay an hour,
the first in the race has the advantage, but a winner may come in at the eleventh hour. So get busy
and stay busy till the last. Ypu may get two prizes, the watch and $10 for the largest list. Try it.
