Casli value Purchased from and on exhibition at Baalim Motor Co., Ltd., Third Avenue South, Lethbridge. Second Payment Subscriptions H you have worked your territory thoroughly aad do not know where to turn to for subscriptions, why not call on the surrounding towns, or see the farmers hi the rural districts? Or. if you are not in a posltiou to get out oE town, ivhy not try to get seco'n'd payments from the sub- scribers who have given you short term subscriptions? You can gain many votes this way. For instance: Suppose Mr. A. gave you a six months' subscription the first week of the Contest when the first vote schedule was in 'force! You received votes for this six months' subscription. Now if you can get Mr. A. to give you another sis months, which would make up a full year's subscription, you will receive snough additional votes for the second payment of six months to bal- ance up the votes for a full year during tfie period when the first payment was made, or votes. If this first six months of Mr. A's was a new subscription, you would receive .votes in addition ,to the Or suppose Mr. A. gave you one year's subscription between the datea of Nov. 13th and 18th. You received votes if it was an old subscription. Now if he gives you another four years to make up the full five years, you would receive the difference between votes, which was given for a five year subscription between the dates of Nov. 13th and 18th.--and the you have already received or votes. In figuring ap the votes for second payments compute them op the schedule in force when the first payment was turned'into the Contest office. During the triple vote offer, triple votes will be given for second liayments also. After yoa have computed the number Votes allowed you for the second payment, multiply the number of, votesi by three. of this kind are to be marked "Second Pay- ment" on the receipt stub, and on the back of the stub you must write when the first payment was turned in; whether the original subscrip- tion was new or old; also the receipt number or the first payments.
