The Daily News believes that it is competent to take cre of the first named condition, and knows of no better way oi meeting the second than by general newspaper advertising. To do the latter most effectively it here solicits the co-operation of all who believe themselves competent to wrrte an effective newjpaper , vertisement To induce the best effort in ils service in this matter The Daily News will reward the writers of the three best advertisements submitted, wiüi three cash prizes, aggregating Fifteen Hnndrcd Dollars, divided as follows : First Cash Prize- For best advertisement, $1,000.00 Second Cash Prize- For second best advertisement, 300.00 Third Cash Prize- For third best advertisement, aoo.oo Total, $1,500.00 Tb advertisement may be a single nnnouncement, or a series of announcements not exceeding six in number.
