Telegram.) All Hartlngton and farmers' for
miles around turned out tonight to hear
Hon. George L. Sheldon, Judge Boyd and
Hon. M. It. Hopewell In their addresses
on campaign Issues In the court house.
The court room was crowded and It was
without doubt the beat campaign meeting
held here in years.
Mr. Sheldon occupied the greater part ot
the evening In a discussion of state af
fairs, which held the close attention of his
hearers, and his telling points were fre
quently applauded. He declared he would
not take the office of governor of thla
state unless he could be in a position to
carry out his promises. He quoted rates
and showed the discriminations that are
practiced by the transportation companies;
promised that the republican legislature
next winter is going to abolish the pass
system and reduce passenger rates snd
other legislation In accordance with the
pledges of the republican platform.
Bis Attendance at Poses.
I'ONCA, Neb., Oct. 16. (Special.) in spite
of the threatening weattur, the republicans
held the largest meeting last night that
has been held hre In years. The opera
house waa crowded to the doors and over
flowed Into the lobby.
Hon. J. J. McCarthy presided. Judge M.
R. Hopewell, candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor, was the first speaker. He referred
to the work of the republican party, con
trasting the prosperous condition of the
country under republican rule with the
stagnation that followed a democratic ad
ministration. He called attention espe
cially to the necessity of voting for the
amendment to the constitution providing
for a railway commission; otherwise the
commission, even If elected, would be use
less. In Introducing Judge J. F. Boyd, candi
date for congress from the Third district,
Mr. McCarthy said: "I will now Introduce
to you a man with whom you are already
familiar, a man who kindly consented to
relieve me of my Job on the 4th of next
March. I'm sure he will be elected and I
hope you'll keep him there twenty years.
A man asked me the other day what my
politics were now. I told him I was still
a republican. He said, 'I thought you had
turned over.' I said, 'No, I got a beautiful
turning over down at Fremont, but I'm
the same on both sides.' "
Judge Boyd made a stirring address on
national Issues, urging the election of the
republics n candidates for the legislature
In order that the reforms advocated by the
republicans might be carried out, and also
that a republican United States senator
might be elected.
G. W. .Wlltse, candidate for stats sen
ator, mads a very humorous speech In
which he stated that be was not a pol
itician, but his friends had forced him to
believe he was a political messlah, and
hence It waa his duty to savs the country.
Senator George L. Sheldon, candidate for
governor, was the fourth speaker. He
first took up rste legislation In Nebraska,
saying that In the laat legislature ths re
publicans were the ones who Introduced
bills and fought for rate regulation. He
spoka of the republican platform's con
demnation of the attitude of the Burling

One of the moat curious contests ever
before the public waa conducted by many
thousands of persons under the offer of the
Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., of Battle Creek,
Mich., for prises of 31 boxes of gold and
300 greenbacks to those making the most
words out of the letters T-I-O Grape
Nuts. The contest was started In February, 108,
and It was arranged to have the prises
awarded on April . 190.
When the public announcement appeared
many persons began to form ths words
from these letters, sometimes the whole
family being occupied evenings, a combina
tion of amusement and education. , .
After a while the lists began to corns In
to the Postum office, and before long the
volume grew until It required wagons to
carry the mall. Many of the contestants
were thoughtless enough to sand their lists
with Insufficient postage, and for a period
It cost the company from twenty-five to
fifty-eight and sixty-dollars a day to pay
ths unpaid postage.
Young ladies, generally those who had
graduated from the high school, were em.
ployed to examine these lists and count
the correct words Webster's dictionary
was ths standard, and each list waa very
carefully correct sd, except thoas who fell
below 1,000. for tt soon became clear that
nothing below that could win. Some of
the lists required the work of a young
lady for a solid week on each Individual
list. Ths work was dons very carefully
and accurately, but the company had no
Idea at the time the offer was made that
ths people would respond so generally, and
they were compelled to fill every available
space In the offices with these young lady
examiners. and, notwithstanding they
worked steadily, it was) Impossible to com
plate the examination until Sept. 29, over
six months sfter the prizes should have
been awarded.
This delay caused a great many Inquiries
and naturally created some dissatisfaction.
It haa been thought beat to make this re
port in practically all of ths newspapers
In ths United States and many of the
magaalnes. In order to make clear to the
people the condition of the contest.
Many lists contained enormous numbers
of words which, under the rules, had to be
eliminated. "Pegger" would count, "Peg
gers" would not. Some lists contained
over 60,000 words, ths greet majority of
which were cut out. The largest Hats
were checked over two and In some cases
three times to Insurs a curacy.
The tlOO.OO gold prise was won by L. D.
Reese, VSt 16th St., Denver, Colo., with
.M1 correct words. Ths highest 110 00 gold
prise went to S. K. Freser, Lincoln, Pa,,
with .21 correct words.
A complete list of the 331 winners, with
their home addresses, will be sent to any
contestant Inquiring on a postal card.
Be sure and give your name and address
This contest has cost ths company many
thousand dollars snd probably has not
been a profitable advertisement; neverthe
less, perhaps some who hsd never before
tried Orsps-Nuts food havs been Interested
In the contest, and from trial of ths food
