For instance: Suppose Mr. A. gave you a six months' subscription tlie first week of the Contest .wheu the first vote schedule was in force. You received Votes for. this-six months' Hubscription. Now if you can get Mr. A. to give you another six months, which would make up ,a; full--year's subscription; .you will receive snough additional votesjfor the second payment of six months to bal- ance up the votes for a full year during the period when the first payment was votes.

Jtfpw if he gives you another four years to make up the'full five years, you would receive votes, which "was given for a five subscription between the dates of Nov. 13th and 18th, and the you have already received or votes. In figuring up the votes for second payments compute them ori 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 secoml payments alsp; After you have computed tlie number of votes allowed you for the second payment, multiply the number of votes by three. of this kind are to be marked "Second Pay- ment" on the receipt stub, and OH the back of the stub you must write when the iirst payment was turned in; whether the original suhacrip.
