It was the biggest and" the best yet pulled off- Charles Dyce, .who managed the Blunt, has managed twenty-five of tiicm on all kinds of newspapers, good W and poor, and he says that this one beat them all by several laps. Jt was a great contest, too. There Was no BUggcslion of friction from be- ginning to end, and the best of good feeling prevailed when it was all" ov- ?r.

All the Herald did was to guarantee that the prizes would be paid no matter what happened, and to turn out a newspaper which would make It a pleasant task to canvas for it. Mr. Dyce and the contestants did the rest and they certainly did it well. It Was the biggest in every 'way, and while the Herald is parting with a big share of the "box office" receipts, in order to give good prizes and make it worth while, the Herald has added to its subscription list a bunch of read- ers which will make it worth while to advertisers, and thus strengthen PER CENT., AND Glasgow, Dec.
