'.those who know the circumstances,

The pluck, the cheerfulness, the

Mr. Gordon Is a hero, who Is fight
ing the battle for self-support
though a prisoner within four walls,
and flat on his back. Thus far he
has continued to be the master of
a most cruel fate, and his struggle
makes the strongest possible appeal
both to our heroic sense and to the
sentiment of compassion. By help
ing him we help a brave soldier
most grievously beset, fighting at

Is a Nubocrlptlon agent for magazines and periodicals. A year ago hoping
to establish a business he undertook to earn a f 1,000 prize offered for a
certain number of subscriptions to two high class publications, with a dis
position to have a share In relieving the wants and w'oes of others, and not
overcome by his own he arranged that the prize nhould go to the Child Sav
ing Inxtltute. The $1,000 was earned for the Infants' Home, but Gordon
only realized expenses. Meanwhile weakened by the trails of suffrlnpr and
increasing wounds, having only a short time to live, as an only hope of pro
vision for the future he made a contract with the Ladies' Home Journal and
the Saturday Evening Post to procure 4,000 subscriptions to these magazines
for wh!ch the publishers will dVpopIt $2,000 with the Conservative Savings &
Loan 'Association for his benefit, the principal to revert to some charity to
be decided by the vote of his subscribers.
He has almost won, having already written 8,963 subscriptions since
October 1st, but n. ust yet have 83 more by May SOth (the 8th and last inanth)
to earn the full $2,000. Gordon does not handle the money nor will he ever
see It, but the Interest will bring him $10 a month for life. The editor
' wishes tc join those who have won the blessing of the Master by often sit

satisfaction to a man who though maimed and pined down disadtns to admit
himself helpless and still keeps an admirable pride that forbids him to utter
the cry of a supplicant Gordon must have these 47 subscriptions to the
Ladles Home Journal and Saturday Evening Post, either new or renewal, by
May rOth or he will fail. He richly deserves success and those who assist
him by their patronage In achieving it will magnify and enoble their own
