WHO WILL 6 THE WATCH ?
There is Apt to Be Some Tall Voting
Twixt Now and Saturday.
And who is to get the gold watch
in The News piano contest Saturday
night ? Can you look at today's votes
and guess the answer ? Aye , there's
There are new votes In today's list
of coupons , but there are no positions
shifted. Three contestants have to
day received votes , but the only result
lies in the advances thus made , no
passing of one by another being re
corded. But there are two days left
for the casting of coupons before the
gold watch will be given away to the
girl leading the prize piano race at 9
o'clock Saturday night , and there's
plenty of probability that between now
and that hour there will be some tall
transformations In the ballot game.
In answer to one Inquiry received
today , the contest editor wants to
make it clear that no contestant will
be permitted to transfer her votes to
any other candidate. Votes cast for
any one candidate can not bo shifted.
And here's a word of advice from
the "contest man. " It's time to quit
hunting for the free coupon votes and
devote more time to the big game of
new subscribers. Each contestant's
friends are now saving their free coupons
pens and mailing them within the
week limit. Let these friends take
care of the free votes on their own
hook and go after bigger ballots. De
vote energy to getting either now or
advance subscriptions , there will bo
found many people just as willing to
make it a couple of years as one year ,
and the additional votes will help
A few people Insist on sending free
coupons thathavo , expired on account
of the time limit. Free coupons must
be cast within a week of tlio date
printed upon them , or they are not

THE CATFISH CHAMPIONSHIP.
Jenkins of Nellgh Protests Against
Capt. McCloud's Methods.
Nellgh , Neb. , July IS. Editor Nor
folk News : On behalf of the Catfish
club of north Nebraska In general and
myself In particular I wish to enter
a protest against the claim of Captain
McCloud of Valentino to the belt as
the champion catfish catcher of the
1 do not wish to be understood as
intimating that the llsh reported to
have been caught by the captain did
not weigh fully the 102 pounds nor
that the scales upon which the fish
was weighed were not absolutely cor
rect ns I haven't the slightest doubt
of either , but I do protest against the
manner in which the fish was cap
No sportsman would ever think of
using a "clothes line" with a hook
made by "a blacksmith , " much less
baiting the same with "liver. " and
were It not for the fact that the cap
tain resorted to both of these ques
tionable methods in capturing his fish
I should have been only too glad to
have proposed his name at the next
session of our club as an honorary
Not only has the captain resorted to
unfair methods but he has had a de
cided advantage over both the Verdl-
gre gentleman and myself In that ho
had the good fortune to capture his
fish last , and this has worked a very
serious handicap to both of us.
The fish that was captured by the
gentleman at Verdlgro seems to have
been caught in the regulation way and
the one I had the pleasure of taking
was caught with an 8-ounce bamboo
rod , a quadruple multiplying reel , a
No. 7 braided silk line and a No. C
gut shelled hook baited with an ordi
nary sized bullhead , all of which comes
within the rules as adopted by the
Catfish club of the Elkhorn valley but
in reporting this catch your reporter
got his wires somewhat crossed In re
ferring to the "grappling hooks , "
which were only used as a matter of
convenience in raising the fish from
the water to the bank.
I trust that Captain McCloud will
not , under the circumstances. Insist
on claiming the championship for if
lie does the Catfish club of Nellgh will
be compelled to refer the matter to
C. E. Burnham and Burt Mapes of
Norfolk , who are both past grand
masters of the fraternity , and whose
decision must be taken as final.
Yours for a "square deal , "
J. C. Jenkins.
