HE SECURED THE PRIZE.
   Howard Gansworth, Class ‘94, now a Freshman at Dickinson College, Carlisle, was the  winner of the Fifty-dollar prize, offered in the summer to the one securing the largest number of subscriptions for the THE INDIAN HELPER before the first of Novemher. The contest has been intensely interesting, especially during the latter part of the time. While starting off sleepily, the lists began suddenly to lengthen within the last three weeks. Nine hundred and twenty-one names is the number to the credit of Howard Gansworth. He seemed to have many friends. People who had never seen him sent names to his credit and his college chums assisted. He feels especially indebted to Mrs. Norton, who through correspondence tlrew to him the aid of a number of her personal friends. Howard is truly grateful for all of the helps received. He is a deserving young man and we congratulate him on his success.
   Elijah Brown, of Oregon, who entered Carlisle as a Junior this year, secured the next highest number, 852. He, too, had friends who came to the front in the time of need and he is also grateful to them for their kindness. Elijah was fortunate in having the time to do more personal canvassing than the other contestants at the school whose duties and studies interfered, and he made friends for himself and the little paper wherever he went.
   Horace I Walton of Swarthmore led off with the first large list. At one time he sent 405. He stood alone for many days, then others gradually ran around him. He deserves special thanks, and has them; 6?? in all was his number.
   John Webster, class ‘97, stood next; his number was 501. John was untiring aud far-seeing in his methods, winning the respect of all whom he approached, and deserves commendation for the gentlemanly manner in which he bore his defeat.
   Miss Shields, of Carlisle, secured 236, and Hugh Sowcea, Santa Fe, 201. Hugh was a member of class ‘94.
   Jason Betzinez obtained 215; Solomon collins--031.
   Space forbids giving names and numbers of all who participated, hut we are grateful for their gallant efforts and for the good they have accomplished in enlarging our circulation thus enabling us to spread honest information about a people who have been much belied. No contest.ant worked for nothing. The offer was unprecedented, as in addition to the prize 40 cents on a dollar were given the contestant, after the first 25 names were sent, and there was no rule against contestants receiving all the aid possible from friends. From the beginning, the Man-on-the-band-stand tried to drum up friends for all.
   THE INDIAN HELPER'S large family will no doubt be gratified to learn that while the increase of circulation on account of the prize amounted to something over ???? the actual number received was 4,883.

We see by the Haskell Leader that Dr. and Mrs. Dixon held a "house warming" recently in honor of their pretty new home. Also that Elijah Brown developed into a very efficient nurse during the illness of one of their number. We remember Elijah on that score too.

Have you seen the full page illustrated article in the San Francisco Examiner, by our old pupil Elijah Brown?
January 12, 1900 INDIAN HELPER


Elijah Brown, who for a short time was a student here and later attended Haskell has a position on the San Francisco Call. In a recent Sunday edition he has almost a full page illustrated article about the Indian, which is a very creditable output. When with us Elijah showed considerable bent in the line of journalism, and we hope he may reach the highest notch attainable.
