There is an opportunity for everyone,
and we should have a good lively rep
resentative in each locality of the
county. There la someone in the office
almost every day who pays subscri'i
tion and wishes to cast their votes for
someone in their locality, but if there
is no one in the race from there they
have to cast them for someone else or
take them away to cast at some future
date providing anyone gets in the race
that they wish to vote for.

The contestants who are working in
the News-Herald and Nebraska Far
mer grand automobile-piano subscrip
tion rally are meeting with great suc
cess wherever they go. They find it an
easy matter to secure votes by induc
ing the people to subscribe for this
paper, or if they are already subscrib
ers to pay for another year. They are
also meeting with success in securing
new subscriptions for this paper and
the Nebraska Farmer on the clubbing
proposition. The price of the News
Herald is the same as before the con
test started, $1.50 per year. The sub
scription price of the Nebraska Farmer
is per year but by paying 50 cents
extra for a year's subscription to the
News-Herald it will include a year
to the Nebraska Farmer and give the
contestan. 800 extra votes.
It only take3 a little work on the
pirt of contestants to secure votes nnd
tho.-?e so doing will be well rewarded.

Wise talks by
the office boy
Some one sent the boss a bunch of books en
titled, "Business Nuggets," "The Road to Suc
cess," "The Man in Front" and such like.I think
he's been looking them over, for when I cume to
work this morning he handed me tl.is: Every
thing comes to those that wait, and the lazy boy
waits to greet it; but success comes on with a
rapid gait, to the man that goes to meet it." I
had to laugh, because he's the boss; but to tell
you the honest truth, a boy on this job doesn't
get any chance to apply thess wise hunches. Actually it's no credit for
a fellow to beindustrioua here, because he cant be anything else. If he
lets up for an hour he wouldn't get his orders out and then there would
be people coming in and saying lots of fierce things, but nothing about
"business success" or the "lazy boy waits to greet it.'1

inir a weekly paper in Sutton, Neb. In
the next dozen years he was laying the
7.50 to 10.00 j foundations for the success of later
t years. In 1884, when he was still a
2.70 to 10.(M) ; young man of 20, he was intrusted with
i the responsible post of Washington
j correspondent of the Chicago Herald, a
3.50 to 8.50 1 position which, through all his polar
' quests and various changes in the paper
1.50 to 3.50 1 itself, he has held with undiminished
! honor to the present day. In that
1.00 to 2.50 quarter of a century he has won a na-
tional reputation as a magnetic and
forceful writer, a shrewd political
prophet, a genius at news-getting and
2.00 to (5.00 a during explorer.
In 1892 Mr. Wellman visited the
West Indies for his paper and located
75 the spot where Columbus landed, mark
I ing it with a stone monument. In H-94
75 he made his first dash for the pole,
reaching the latitude of 81 degrees
i northeast of Splitzbergen. In 1898 he
4.85 to 9.50 ' tried it again, penetrating as far as
Franz Josef Land and mapping many
islands that had never before been ex
plored. Two years ago he made a dar-
I inn. atfnmttt tn rrnan thp nrrlir ire
fields in an airship. Mr. Wellman has
not yet reached the pole, and perhaps
he never will, but he has given abund
ant proof of his courage and persever
ance. His chief laurels, however, have
been won by his years of splendid
work as a Washington correspondent.
