You muy commence1 soliciting at replied a representative of the campaign de- partment. The fact of the matter is that very few endeavor to make the first week or two of the contest. It seems to take about that much time to get the enthusiasm oi the candi- dates up .to the right pitch. Karly work counts the most, though. unusual feature about the con- test this year is that rrmrc notice is taken of it by people who are not likely to be candidates. The question is frequently asked bow the Herald can alTord to oner such generous pric- es. Getting subscriptions is an ex- pensive1 undertaking at all times, yet a large circulation is the Hfe-blood oi newspaper. Instead of employing a jcrew of solicitors and extending a 'campaign over a year or more, the j Herald believes that bulking the ex- 'pense.aiid giving it in prizes to en- ergetic people will accomplish the ,same result in a shorter period. At prizes enumerated, regardless of the number of subscriptions obtained. The any rate, the candidates get the Herald takes all the competitors are sure winners. remember that .the contest starts just when cadi individual can- didate is ready to do so; also that up to the present time practically no work other than mapping out a cam- paign has been ilone.

SPENT HALF OF HIS LIKE IN JAIL London, Oct. sensational suicide occurred at the county jail here yesterday, when Alexander Hammer, under sentence "of five years in Kingston penitentiary for horse stealing, hanged him- self in his cell. The deed was deliberate, for the man had pur- posely avoided giving his fellow- prisoners an inkling of his Inten- tions, while at the same time he 'was writing his farewell message In a small diary he carried. Hammer was only thirty years of age and in good health, but practically, all his life from the age of fifteen he had spent behind prison bars. The outlook on an- other long term determined his course, and he relinquished life wtth the statement that he was Innocent of the charge on which he had been convicted. The message he left was as fol- lows: "If anything should happen me, remember, I am Innocent of stealing, innocent of knowing the horses to be stolen, and 1 do not believe the judge thought me guilty. He sentenced me because he Is hardened to such proceed- ings. Life is not worth living five years in hell, so good-bye. May God have mercy on the souls of those who swore my life away. So good-bye to all."
